No argument here.

Hell, his insistence that you hire doctors and researchers after the epidemic has already started is all you really need to hear about that.

But but free trade...

Schools have been closed. No masks or hand sanitizer to be found. Read an article today about how to make your own hand sanitizer, 2/3 99% alcohol mixed with 1/3 aloe vera gel or vegetable glycerin.

It feels grim.

Masks: Three bandanas. Wear them around your face like you're robbing a train, change them out regularly, wash daily.

Sorted.

Be safe out there V. We are under assault from the plain old flu here but it's only a matter of time.

It's natural, it's organic, it's Libertarian, thinning the herd, culling the weak and unfit. Economic opportunity abounds, that $12 a week we were wasting on Grannie can be put to better use. Selling people what they think they need for obscene profits. Raise the cost of funerals to push people into buying insurance so we can raise the cost of funerals. The Soylent Green processing kills all viruses and germs.

PSA: you can make your own hand sanitizer, as long as it has as least 60% alcohol content.

Also PSA: Knob Creek makes a single barrel 120 proof bourbon.

We are still learning how this virus is transmitted. Through a stomach? Is 120 proof strong enough?

Why would anyone waste good bourbon on their hands? If you are going to go, then go happy.

120 proof is barely 60%, 750ml for $53.
A quart of 91% isopropyl is $2.59 at target.

Suit yourself.

If the end of your tongue sticks out further than the rest of your body.

Mr. Clod's entire company just shut down their offices indefinitely; everyone working from home until further notice. They have a Seattle branch, but this applies to all branches.

We have 1 more week until spring break. I'd lay money on our school remaining closed after that.

Interesting.

I'm going to need to review our remote computing procedures. I do it very rarely.

Let's say you had a wedding scheduled for May 2 at Niagara Falls, with 25 people driving up to attend, including 3 people over 80 and 1 two-year-old. What would you do?
