    I was watching Dr Siegle on Fox News today. Turns out the doctors and hospitals in the New York area are reporting less sevier cases of Covid-19. People are still getting the disease, but they are far more likely to recover without issue.

  3. What global pandemic?

    Southeast Texas lakes area is packed with boats, camper trailers, RVs, jet skies.. everything under the sun. Just about every truck has something being pulled behind it.

  5. Truly Uncertain Times Ahead

    What kind of alternate reality do managers and upper management live in? Europe alone hit 100,000 dead, and the worlds largest retailer finally tells employees to wear mask. Then again, didn't the CDC say wearing mask in public did not help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Why do companies...

  8. Companies not providing employees with PPE

    Why aren't companies providing employees with PPE? If an employee gets sick with Coronavirus, I wonder if workers comp could be held responsible? Even hospitals are not providing nurses with N95 mask. The excuse, the CDC has not recommended medical providers use N95 mask. Went by a big box...
  9. What will we tell our grandkids - lighthearted thread

    What will we tell our grandkids about Coronavirus? I think I will start with the famous black and white documentary by George Romero titled Night of the Living Dead. Once the Coronavirus mutated the zombies were able to run. So the next movie will be Dawn of the Dead (2004). A famous...
  10. People having a terrible time staying at home?

    It appears people are having a bad time staying at home. As in emotional breakdowns, family violence, substance abuse, suicides... etc. What changed in the past several hundred years to cause people to have emotional issues staying home? If we go back a few hundred years people were lucky if...
  11. Anyone "essential" and still working?

    I'm considered essential, thankfully I retire on the 17th and I'm out of that rat hole I used to call work for good. Management revealed that we have 26 + cases at work so far, between 3 facilities in the NYC area. The 3rd in my building, they tried to hide it from the 2nd shift work force...
  12. I Fear the US Is Finished As A Nation...start of a 2nd Dark Age

    This is from the City-Data forum. They banned me years ago. They didn't like some photo I put up there. But that is not the deal. Thrillobyte make some interesting points. No telling how this will all work out. I do know that there is no gaurantee that countries live on in perpetuity. And if the...
  13. Generation Z Reactions

    I believe that it is important to study/observe our youth to help understand the future of our world. This can help us in many areas of life such as running a business or prepping.
