For those of you who regularly attend church/synagogue/wherever services, what is your criteria for when you'll stop attending?

For my fellow Catholics: are you concerned about using the communal holy water fonts? If you go to Norvus Ordo Masses what are you doing about the sign of peace? I'm holding a kleenex in my hand (universal sign for "do not touch") and giving a little wave instead of shaking hands or hugging. No one has tried to breach that perimeter yet; in fact, several people moved away when they saw it. Bonus!

Water cut, power cut, gas cut ... how long can the city survive? "

I guess I was being too optimistic. I was hoping it would take longer for water and power to get cut in a pandemic situation. Suddenly I am mentally going through preps in my mind to double check if we have enough for off the grid much sooner than I had anticipated.
I had no idea they'd lost utilities. That's bad, really bad. Spring in Wuhan is March 20. Maybe that will help. The nasty coal heating, and standing in lines in the cold, must be brutal.

January 47° / 33°
February 51° / 37°

Can someone ELI5 (explain it as you would to a five-year-old) how chlorine pool shock tabs can be used, and why? Never been a pool owner, always went to the beach or the gym to swim.

Someone earlier asked why it's not in Africa and India. I think it is. They caught these cases.

https://indianexpress.com/article/in...light-6266200/

https://indianexpress.com/article/in...omits-6255753/

Granted they may not be actual cases, but the fact sick people are traveling from countries with known cases into India makes it very likely it will eventually spread there.

As of yesterday Wuhan hasn't lost utilities. Perhaps something changed in the last 18 hours. I am glad tho that I have 50 gallons on hand at all times plus a water bob i can fill if it starts looking ominous.

While I am FAR from being a good Catholic, my take on it is that you aren't going to hell for missing Mass but due to the virus you sure risk meeting your maker much sooner if you continue going.

You don't want the tabs, get the granuals instead. Look for ones marked at least 73%

Then you simply mix the appropriate amount of the granuals into the water (NEVER add water to granuals) with a non-reactive spoon and there you go.

https://www.instructables.com/id/Poo...-Purification/


These are the ones I bought. I got the 6 pack. A little goes a long way so no need to go crazy on the quantity you buy if you don't have a pool or spa to use it in.

Singling out a news source for total BS news is a joke at this point. The stuff Fox is saying is criminal-level misinformation.

It was on Twitter and the headline was absolutely laughable. The article even more so. Just because they've quarantined a ship in Japan and not allowed others port, doesn't mean you shouldn't book a cruise. Come on, how could an editor of any news source let that get published with what's going on in the world right now?

I've blocked most major news networks so the foreign news rises to the top. Whenever a new network shows up telling me that I just need to wash my hands and eat at a Chinese restaurant so I'm not racist, I block it, so it's easier to find actual news from around the world.

I need to save a similar internet search string.

I wonder how this will affect tax filing deadline on 15 April? May not be anyone in the IRS office to process returns. Unless it's all automated now.

And reading further down in the comments/translations and a source link...it appears to be completely unrelated to coronavirus and more an issue between a developer and the owner of a building complex that came to a head around January 21.

Sigh...this is how hysteria happens. Back to the DOOM.

How long can you expect the filters to last in a virus environment? I would suspect once out there the virus would be in the filter element and on the outside around the inlet vents.

Once back to safety would you trash the filters and then decontaminate the mask?

Edit: That's interesting. Several of us asking similar questions within minutes.
40 hours total approximately. You can make that a multiple use sitrep, just don't go much over 40 hours.

This is another fantastic question.

It is my experience that the hurting, the ill, the desperate, the seekers.... they flock to churches. Someone finds out they have a fever, or their child has a fever and the place of worship might be their 2nd stop. Priests and Pastors and their staff's need to be educated in a hurry.

As for me..... I think I will stick with internet church from 1 or 2 teachers that I highly respect and of course..... read my own Bible!

I'm staying away from crowds every chance I get.

I just caught this tidbit when reading an article about the 1st Japanese death.

Quote:
Two taxi drivers, one of them in the capital Tokyo, have also tested positive, raising the possibility that it could be passed on through their passengers.
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-c...-idUSKBN20708N

The Tokyo metro area is the most populated in the world with approximately 40 million people. Tokyo alone at ~14 million.

I wonder if they will still host the Olympics.

My vote is for Molokai. Much more remote, warm which the virus doesn't like as much, was originally set up as quarantine colony & most people would bitch less about being sent to Hawaii especially during winter vs NY.
