    morning. we are a retired couple in relatively good physical mental and emotional health, so this mutated virus affecting the world wide is, well i wonder, going to be the new normal? what if. will change the world, even more-so then it has, we've become accustomed to. it certainly has become the biggest topic of discussion everywhere. all kinds of experts/laymen weighing in, the news and other social media is full of 'em, some apparently savvy folk making a fine profit, much like from any of the world wars, playing on the fears of others. the hoarders hoard, the talkers talk, the party kids party, the scared ones hide and we ordinary folk take it in stride. 'blessings' and 'luck', in reality, have to be worked for.

    just my give and take on things

    On my ride to the doctor’s office, I kept my eyes on all the closed businesses. I wondered how many would be able to ride things out. Will these people be wiped out? What about the employees? Will they return if possible or will they move on to different employment if possible? To be sure, the world we once knew will be totally changed.

    Well, standing here like an idiot doling out electrical crapola. They gave me a letter saying I’m essential for the nonexistent road blocks. Oh, and a little plastic forehead thermometer. I’m all set. Nothing bad could possibly result from this .....

    I heard on the grapevine that it may have something to do with 5g radiation poisoning. I know not the veracity of this, but I'll be ordering in some iodine just to be safe.

    The reason for supplementing with iodine in relation to radiation is if there is a presence of radioactive iodine 131--a fission product--in the food supply due to fallout from a nuclear accident or atmospheric nuclear testing. 5G does not release nuclear radiation or radionuclides, and so there is no point in supplementing with iodine because of 5G radiation.

    5G radiation is microwave in nature, meaning it is of a longer wavelength than visible light, and thus not ionizing. It is also not nuclear in origin. SARS-Cov-2 is a virus, a type of small, replicating biological entity (although one that does not necessarily meet the definition of life, but contains genetic material) of natural origin. It is nothing to do with either nuclear or microwave radiation.

    With the exception of maybe 2 hours I have not slept in the past 36 hours, my third shift engineer dropped out sick, I was forced to cover his shift the past two nights, this morning I get home and just get to sleep for just one of those two hours and I get a call of a major problem with the PLCs, I was needed back at work...I left the house at 8 am this morning, its 5 pm now and I am getting ready to go back home and 'hopefully' not have to come back here until Monday next week...I am very tired and also very hungry, I haven't eaten since 6 pm yesterday either, I don't want to sound like I'm whingeing, but...

    Yeah, we feel quite lucky here, for all that it's just a crummy and frightening situation. My wife and I can both work from home, and we live in a house where we are not right on top of our neighbors. Our neighborhood is quiet and relatively safe, and gives us a good place to walk our dog a couple times a day. We are both able to work from home so the biggest immediate threat is not going stir crazy or giving in to fear and despair (not to sound overly dramatic but, it's easily possible to imagine the bottom falling out of a lot of things right now).

    Anyway we are very thankful and grateful. I think this is harder on my wife than it is on me; I'm something of a hermit by nature but she misses her sisters and her parents and our niblings quite a lot. We've already had 3 birthday parties using Zoom (two with her family, one with mine) and I guess Easter and another upcoming birthday will have to be held the same way (and, hey, lucky we have that option).

    One lucky thing for us, I hate to say this but think in this situation it's true, is we have no kids to care for in these circumstances. I think there's a lot of added strain for our friends, family and coworkers who have children at home.

    Have you considered the long-term effects of all this background radiation? Perhaps 5g is too much for people to handle, so their immune systems are suffering? A lot of people with this 'virus' are showing blistering, they're bleeding from orifices, that doesn't sound like the work of any flu I've ever heard of.
    What if this is several things at once?

    If the Radiation does not Inoize It can not harm you in the ways you are thinking. The idea is, The ionization breaks down and damages the double helix causing cells to die or replicate improperly causing cancer and tumors. 5g will not harm people in this way. This is a subject for another thread.

    Starting today, I will be wearing a face covering when I venture outside.
    NYC residents should cover face when in public, mayor says
    eBay cancelled a mask purchase that I made yesterday. And Amazon's offering are dubious. When I looked closely at one of the highest rated 3-packs on sale, I noticed that all the reviews pertained to an unknown book, rather than the product in question.

    So, I'll be using an old T-shirt.

    Its better than nothing, Did you guys see this? About 3m?



    They have accepted the loan grant by Trump and are auctioning off their masks to other countries denying Americans Masks. Granted this is Tucker Carlson. So, how true is, Is debatable.

    Don't worry, I have found in my experience,

    People reap what they sow. Or, Even karma may be an apt word. Like Pigfarmer always says, " It will come out in the wash" Right now, We have bigger problems than 3m. But, This isn't the last we will hear of this. I can promise.

    This coronavirus is not the flu...

    There are also no 5G towers in my area nor many in the state I live in and the virus spreads relentlessly, the 5G connection is a non-issue, just conspiracy nuts online making false connections...

    If that were true, would there not be evidence of an increase in the rate of incidence of other infectious diseases? Is there such evidence? This is a new virus which no-one has any immunity to (except the small proportion of people who have already had it and recovered).

    I fail to see how you can reason from the fact that people are falling ill due to a brand new contagion, it must mean that their immune systems have been compromised due to some man-made influence, rather than that this is simply how people would respond to this new disease. If people were dropping dead in large numbers to existing infectious diseases where previously they were not, you might have the beginnings of a conspiracy theory, but because they aren't, you don't.

    1.) Cite your source for blistering and orifice bleeding. 2.) This is not a flu. As we have been told at great length, it is a novel coronavirus.

    Covid-19, like some other infectious diseases, including avian H5N1 influenza, can lead to cytokine release syndrome, a severe immune response to infection, the tissue-damaging effects of which can lead to bleeding.

    Authorities seize nearly one million pieces of medical equipment from alleged hoarder


    I understand people need these and it is life and death, However, Could this be interpreted that the government wanted these supplies so bad they just stole them from this guy?
