    Scratch Italy off your list. They now have 130 cases and two fatalities.

    Coronavirus Explodes in Italy, Threatening Europe. Can It Be Contained?

    Experts are saying that within a year 40-70% of the world will have or have had the Coronavirus. Many will never even show symptoms.

    You’re Likely to Get the Coronavirus

    Tighten your seat belt--it's going to be a bumpy ride.

    I was going to respond, but now I’ve decided to panic, head home and stop on the way for masks, gloves, and condoms before I go to Publix and buy a months worth of food.

    Can't believe you're just now going. I've had our electricity and water cut off for two days, so the family could go ahead and get used to the new normal.

    Probably not a bad idea. I do have month of food, but I better hit the ABC and buy a few kegs. :emoji_beers:

    DOW is down 800 points already. :(

    They're looking at me funny for using the computer after I gave a big long rant this morning about bare necessities and being thankful for what we have. But Too Hot is Too Important to let go of, even in times like this.

    No one has suggested this and it's a completely original thought, I am the only one to think of it, but we can all thank Trump for this pandemic that will no doubt kill off way more people than Bernie's gun bill has.
