  1. 100m doses of what? No vaccine candidate has completed phase 3 yet.
  2. On one hand, I'll miss a movie I want to see for about 3-6 months. On the other, I'll risk heart attack, stroke, lung failure, or a whole host of other problems up to and including death. Tough choice.
  3. Not sure what the most ridiculous take in this thread is. Regardless, I'm not going to a theater for any movie until there's a widely available vaccine. Even if it's something I've been looking forward to as much as this.
  4. Increasing the death toll and greatly increasing people's fear of going out at all will have significant long term economic, social, and mental consequences. I feel that many people are ignoring that. Once a vaccine is safe, available, and widespread we can look at getting back to some semblance of normalcy, but until then we need massive testing, massive contact tracing, and very, very strong social distancing regulations in place. None of those things exist, yet.
  5. How long do people stay at home? As long as is necessary to prevent as many deaths as is possible. Anyone who says the cure is worse than the disease is saying that there is some amount of death that is acceptable for their comfort. For me? No deaths are acceptable. Every single one is a tragedy. Tax billionaires into fucking oblivion and distribute their money to everyone else. That's how they achieve life potential.
  6. No. Economics is an agreed upon fiction. Currency's purpose to make exchange of goods easier is good, but the position of money as paramount is not. Capitalism is broken. It does not work, and we should be looking at solutions to the problem of keeping people fed and with shelter without needlessly sacrificing people in the name of "restarting the economy" Want to keep the methods of exchange as they mostly are? Then just give people the money. Without restrictions. You get enough to survive. And you get enough to survive. And you get enough.
  7. I'm a bit stir-crazy, and I miss my friends, family, and co-workers. But I'm also willing to camp out for a year or more if needed.
  8. Could do, but I expect the Puget Sound region to remain mostly closed after the Stay at Home order ends. A message at work noted that while we're doing a lot to slow the spread, there are still many more cases than there were before the restrictions were put in place. I would much prefer to be overly cautious than to try to rush a reopening and give resurgence a chance.
  9. Washington's stay at home order extended through May 31. Given the response in other areas where restrictions have been lifted, I can't say I see this as a problem. I really like that Inslee has decided that "as few deaths as possible" is the right course. Keep people at home and keep them alive. Money isn't real. People are.
  10. Need to figure out what movie watching project to do next. Though I think I'll catch up on some TV series in the meanwhile. Currently watching Black Lightning season 2.
  11. A hahaha. I'm done. Three weeks. Twenty movies. And a Twitter thread with all my thoughts.
  12. Could be declining in areas where it's mature and rising in new areas so it's balancing out?
  13. My MCU rewatch has gotten up to Infinity War. Surprises thus far: I like Winter Soldier more, now. Still not great, but I dug it. Doctor Strange also worked better for me this time around. Negative surprises: None of the Avengers films are good, but some have good moments. The run from GotG to GotG2 is so rough. Only Ant-Man is good in that stretch. Strange is okay. Everything else is bad.
