  1. Netflix works pretty well. You can also use Amazon's app. Plus HBO Max just came out which has a bunch of movies but it's somehow not on Roku. Vudu also has movies. Plenty of apps with movies!
  2. 1,211 people are talking about this And this is why you have to thoroughly vet who you give money to...I feel bad for everyone who gave money expecting it to have an immediate effect. Right now, it's not going to...and it may never, since this was only outed accidentally by the fund itself...who has finally stopped accepting donations it wasn't using... https://www.fastcompany.com/90517597/the-controversy-over-how-the-minnesota-freedom-fund-is-spending-its-donations-explained I wasn't expecting an immediate effect. But that doesn't mean the donation is wasted or bad or that every protestor is going to be helped.
  3. So basically what I'm hearing is just stay in my apartment until I get vaccinated.
  4. Did you know I have a history minor? Yeah very interesting. I'm still not doing a list. 😂
  5. My church is having virtual services only for the foreseeable future. This includes the sermon and praise & worship.
  6. Please note that while China's initial reaction to the virus was problematic, this is a global problem. Saying this is "China's fault" shows a very reductionist way of thinking. Almost every country has bungled the response to this virus and it's believed this virus to be a natural mutation. Even if China hadn't messed up, there is still a strong chance that containment of a highly spreadable disease during it's asymptotic period would have still spread across the globe. As for whether it came from a bat or another animal, it's still folly to blame China.
  7. Technically it's still alive. Just not active. But yes you can use that. If you aren't part of it, let me know and I'll include you!
  8. I'm not a lawyer but unless there is proof FOX News knew how bad it was going to be and they deliberately misled viewers, I imagine there won't be a case against them. Even then, I believe you need to establish that people got sick and/or died due to their reporting...and that's going to be a very tricky thing to prove in court.
  9. You know the Spanish flu pandemic hit right before the Roaring 20's. 👀
  10. I'm going to assume you meant it doesn't exist when it comes to coronavirus 'cause it does exists with other viruses. Like measles.
  11. Not to mention all the young people who survive but suddenly have their life permanently affected by scarred lungs. Some people won't just get over it. It will impact them their whole life.
  12. Normal healthy. Maybe they have allergies but other than that nothing pops up in their physical.
  13. That person on another forum is wrong. Did you know 50% percent of the hospitalized are young previously healthy people? Yeah, and if enough people get hospitalized, it doesn't matter your age: what happens in Italy will happen here where not enough beds are available and you have to choose who dies painfully and who might live. And a lot of people who die In Italy are young, previously healthy. Now think about this: say a single father in his 40s with three kids gets a heart attack. It takes 90 minutes for the ambulance to reach him because there's a huge backlog due to the coronavirus. He gets to the hospital and all the beds are taken by people who need respirators for the coronavirus. Under normal circumstances, he's saved. Under the pandemic, he might not have died due to the Coronavirus, but he's dead because of it. You won't see him in the death count though. 'Cause it's technically the heart attack that killed him, turned his three kids orphans (and if they don't have family, they likely go to a system that won't be able to handle the huge amount of kids who won't have families anymore coming in). So even if the death count is 500k with just coronavirus, if we spread out the deaths, we can save more lives than just the infected. And it's not "people who should be dying any day". It's normal healthy young people dying in Italy. It's normal healthy young people who will be dying in the US too. There was a 29-year old otherwise completely healthy doctor in China who died from this. But since you are all about making cold calculus that doesn't take into account that God made us and that life is sacred and is thus paramount, since you have decided money is your God with that post, I ask you: do you save a 24-year old college graduate looking for their first job or a 55-year old doctor who might save other lives but has less life ahead of him? Since all you care about is avoiding a recession, that's the kind of question you want doctors to ask. And what if you decide to say "fuck it" let's avoid the recession and in a month or two the millions (and yes the death count would reach over a million) who died could have been saved because we get enough medicine to treat the symptoms and save people? The goal here should be to save as many people as possible while buying as much time as possible. The goal here should be to try to lessen the burden on our medical system as much as possible. As for the economy? Well, the government here is gonna have to step in and help out businesses and individuals. But we should not prioritize McDonalds's bottom line over a single human life. 'Cause money is man-made. Human life is God-granted. And right now is a trying time but we should not forget: life remains sacred.
  14. Sure. Hope it does work out. But until it actually does, I would remain skeptical of any claims.
