I think of it like this, for each of us there is a chance that a tiger will come into our yards and eat our children.

Don’t cover your kids in Sardine Oil, and you won’t have that problem.

That &$?%# Carol Baskin!

I will say that there are people here who’s opinions I disagree with, but am glad they’re posting, and doing so in a way that doesn’t come across a certain way, and those whom I agree with that do come across a certain way.

And if anyone *really* thinks the information we’re getting out of China, the US, and a few other countries on actual death toll counts is accurate, well, I have some meth and tigers to make you gay.

It doesn't move on for the people who died, in part, because some asymptomatic assholes read something online doubting the severity of this pandemic and decided to go out. Don't you see how yours, and everyone else's speculation carries weight?

I haven't bothered watching Tiger King. At this point I don't really want to, just because seemingly EVERYONE has already.

I watched the Mandalorian after my Facebook feed was inundated with baby Yoda memes, and I thought it was lame. And I'm a Star Wars fan.

Two completely different genres, I know...but whatever.

And just when I thought we were going all Kumbaya in this thread, I see this? Dude...you are so wrong. Because, math.

Germany is working on a plan to restart their economy after Covid. Phased in re-start, mandatory face masks in public (buses and trains, factories and public buildings), limits on public gatherings and rapid contact tracing. Want to be able to trace at least 80% of contacts of any infected person within 24 hours. Infected people and anyone coming in contact with them quarantined either at home or hotels. Goal to get R0 down to less than 1.

Shops would reopen. Schools in certain regions would as well. Strict social distancing measures would still remain in place. Strict border controls would be relaxed, Large events and private parties would not be permitted. Seems unlikely Europa opens.

Stay at home/social distancing order in place right now until at least April 19th. No time set for when they would be relaxed. Expectation is that pandemic will last until 2021.

Exactly my thoughts.
