The Coronavirus Thread


Recommended Posts

Coronavirus seems to be pretty big talk around the world.  This can be our slice.

They cancelled E3 this year because of it. =[

 

I'm kinda more interested in those games now that there won't be an audience. I wonder if it's going to be as weird as it seems.

I think they're going a little overboard with it. From all the people stocking on TP and hand sanitizer to the recently announced suspension of the current NBA season, I think it's being over blown. Yes it's a contagious disease, but you're more likely to die from the flu than coronavirus.

Oh Rudy Gobert. Joking about touching the mics and coronavirus, catches it anyway. Now the whole season is suspended.

I just read it can survive in the air for three hours and on surfaces for 3 days :panic:

I can't even buy a pepsi for fear of contamination :panic:

I'll have to clean everything with bleach wipes. Even food :panic:

 

:panic:

Seen this a month or so ago from China when it was first reported and that China would build a bunch of hospital's just for this epidemic

No matter what anyone else says, I'm still blaming China for this. For the NBA, for Tom Hanks, for me not being to find toilet paper at the store, everything.

I agree, it came from a lab there, it was transmitted by Chinese tourists, to somehow not think China is to blame is foolhardy.

I heard it's not an airborne virus like measles/smallpox

So as long as you're not getting sneezed on or something, you shouldn't catch it.

I've been using this website if I want to get my data itch scratched. I know there are likely hundreds like this but this was the cleanest and easiest to follow for me. It shows new cases, recovery statistics and deaths.

 

If everybody thought the same, this virus wouldn't be nowhere near as bad as it is. Unfortunately, basic hygiene (especially hand washing) has obviously fallen to the wayside, which just reinforces my belief that handshakes should have been outlawed in the 1950s. Every hand you've ever touched has had a dick in it at some point. Keep your hands clean, be mindful of your symptoms and don't panic buy like you're preparing for doomsday. You're not going to run out of toilet paper. If you do and you absolutely can't find anything, just use your hand and have a shower. Who's going to know? You're not going to leave the house anyway. It'll be our little secret.

Obviously the highlight of any earth-moving event is the influx of news and memes that are born from it. Here is my favourite - a kid from Leeds was sent home from school for selling hand sanitiser. Say what you want, but this child is going places. It isn't his massive balls that make this story great though...

Finally being an introvert pays off. But honestly f*ck 2020 and f*ck this decade. Here I was thinking we're heading for a new start.

I vote everyone be issued with a flamethrower, one of those natty two-tank backpack affairs that featured heavily in the Return To Castle Wolfenstein series.

 

Walking around the neighbourhood, torching anyone who might be a threat of contagion.  Shoolchildren first.  They're a filthy reservoir of germs, huddled together in classrooms, clambering all over each other in the playground.  And then there's old people.  Not much of a threat in themselves but since they're mostly on their way out anyway and are more susceptible to the virus. May as well torch 'em.

 

If anyone gets stuck for potential flambees they can always refer to the "Types of people you can't stand" thread for inspiration.

Would be way better if this were in D&D, as here it turns into spammy bullsh*t.

Good call, stock up on tinned Spam.
