    Free enterprise at it's best, toilet rolls with trump's picture printed on them. Production in China but still available for shipment now! Designed and formulated by BigMouth inc. in CT in the good old USA and manufactured and printed by our good friends in China. I've heard rumors these have been that popular especially in the US that they've had extend production due to the demand. You chest thumpers are right, Trump truly is popular :D

    If Bondi beach give any indication of people’s lack of comprehension of the seriousness of this issue, what makes us think some business owners would display a more sensible approach to this pandemic given lots of $$ are at play for them.

    We needed a formal declarations of state of emergency with stronger enforcement, punishment for non compliance, and this must occur much earlier than is the case today where it’s half hearted and continual mixed messages.

    As is, doing investigations in the normal civilian peacetime way, after the fact, won’t help the situation and won’t ensure compliance is occurring. We need much more to happen, expedited civil cases is preferred but if that can’t de done, court martial since we are in essence at war with this virus.

    In Austria there is already a criminal investigation occurring regarding a ski resort partying on after they were warned of covid19 infections. But it’s all too little too late. Even in NSW, some jerk coughed on a police women when doing his mandated reporting to the police station. He then said he had COV2 so was charged, bailed and now awaiting a May 6 court date... May 6... should have been the next day :mad:

    Such things should be expedited so court trial, conviction and sentencing occur within days to act as a deterrent to the many morons within society that think this is all a joke and doesn’t apply to them. Only then will the recalcitrant people/employers pull their head in and tow the line ;)

    My employer has apparently seen the light. Not sure what the catalyst was but hopefully something I was involved in.

    People will always do stupid things . Sometimes they even remove themselves from the human gene pool. That's why the (generally posthumous) Darwin Awards exist :p

    Oh, and education was no panacea for the 10 most educated darwin award winners :eek:

    On the news last night Channel 7 had an article on the corona virus. They said that the percentage of deaths was unknown but expected to be in the 1%-2.5% range. They mentioned that the death rate from the flu was 1%. There might not be a lot of difference between the two in the death rate.
    The big difference has been in the panic buying and the stockmarket crash. Also governments of the world reaction. The big question I ask is why and who stands to gain? For one the supermarkets are doing a roaring trade and there will be those who will make a killing on the stockmarket. When the stockmarket as it inevitably will recover the rich stand to make a fortune.

    Well, I place my bet on the market. Before, it was in a bubble, way too high to make some decent cash. Tanked and jumped in, so far, the stocks I bought, they are up 80%. Also, made some good coin in the Precious Metal Market playing with the Gold and Silver ratio. The best part, while I was working from home, mates and I engaged on Day Trading, no need for Gov handouts on my part :D Made some cash on both sides, better than working overtime.

    This sort of **** makes me so angry. Millenials that dont GAF. Was the same on Melb beaches on the news tonight. They don't care that the repercussions of this is full lock down. With basically no one allowed to even go to work. If my CEO has to shut all operations thats 200 of my colleagues and friends out of a job in a matter of days. Then I have the job of telling those under me sorry but the Millenials interstate has ensured the demise of your jobs and your last day is today.

    Not bad, good for them. Sun bathing allows the body to generate the need it Vitamin D that keep you immune system helathy. Here is a thing. Most young people are healthier, why is that? One of the main reasons is Vitamin D3. The youngsters and even us, the older ones, that spend time outside, engaging on some sort of activity. Not only the body makes Vitamin D from Sun exposure, also get the chance to get their lungs working. A lot of pneumonia cases comes from the fact that older people do not fill thier lungs at capacity. Nasty bacteria is not purged and weaken immune system from been inside all day long is a mix for disaster.

    Back in the day, when the Spanish Flu fücked the world. Was a common practice to put the sick outside, for some fresh air and sun. Seems to work back then, why not now?

    The goddamned Gov with their so called Allopathic "experts" they do not know shît. The same idiots that create problems are telling you how to solve them.

    One can obtain sun exposure and vitamin D without being ignorant / arrogant cnuts in front of a sign telling them not to do what they are doing.

    This article needs to be spammed to all millenials:

    Sixteen-year-old girl dies from COVID-19 in France


    A 16-year-old French schoolgirl from the Essonne region has become the youngest person in the country to die from COVID-19.

    The girl, called Julie and whose surname has not been revealed, was hospitalised Monday and died Tuesday evening at the Necker children's hospital in Paris.

    Her older sister, Manon, spoke to the French press to warn that "we must stop believing that this only affects the elderly. No one is invincible against this mutant virus."

    Manon said that Julie had no pre-existing illness before contracting coronavirus.


    Along with the article about the 21 year old, healthy female from the UK.
    She recounted that Julie had a "slight cough" last week and when it worsened this weekend, they saw a doctor - from when the virus accelerated at a "violent" pace.

    Even though the death rate from the virus among young people is low, France's public health body has said that 35 per cent of intensive care patients are under 60.

    A 21-year-old woman died of the virus in Britain on Tuesday.

    Where I live, my missus is the House Supervisor of the town hospital, only 1 case of the 'Rona virus. The person is doing well, stable, no signs of getting worse. The rest of the cases are just the usual day to day stuff.
