After 10 days of self-quarantining, I'm starting to grow weary of people who still want to argue that we should go back to normal and this is all hyped BS.

I keep reading people posting on FB arguing against science. Even the supreme leader (Trump) is on board, but they can't help themselves to just stay the fuck inside their homes. I'm at the point where I want to see these people die. If COVID-19 was only a threat to the people exposed, I'd encourage them to congregate. I have a cousin, just retired from 30+ year corp job and thinks she knows more than the collective medical/science community. She's posting pics of being at the beach down in Florida and how this all BS.

Now is the time where we need an active shooter to thin the herd. For all the people who want believe this is a hoax or knee jerk reaction, I'd love to watch some sniper pick off large crowds. These people deserve to die.

I'm surprised some old senior citizen down in Florida hasn't tried the stand-your-ground law w/ all these spring breakers ignoring all the warnings.

This is indeed frustrating.

Unfortunately, it was at least partially enabled by initial anti-science responses from supposed leaders.

And, people are just dumb.

Ran into my neighbor at the mailbox and shot the shit about the virus. Conversation closed with him being like “hey man, if y’all need anything, we are pretty stocked up so we might be able to help.” And I left the convo thinking, wow this guy is taking it seriously.


They grilled out and had like 15 people/kids over the very next day.

All the neighborhood kids are still playing together, approximately 6 different families co-mingling, while our poor daughter just watches from down the street. I feel horrible, but if this is going to be a protracted thing, I want her to get used to being without her friends for a while.

^Yea my boys have been gaming online with their friends quite a bit, so that's taken the sting out of it. Honestly with them both being teens they hang out more online regularly anyways.

Our neighborhood is very small and there aren't any other kids really at my boys ages so we haven't had to worry about face to face interaction.

Our only next door neighbors chat over the fences a good bit but keep the recommended distances apart.

I had this convo with my dad (68 yrs old).

I was like, if it weren't for having loved ones in the most vulnerable demographic, I'd say let every catch it and the ones who die, die.

then we'd be fucking done in 2 weeks instead of the 2 months things are closing for.

or maybe we could just have the vulnerable people quarantine for 2 weeks while the rest of us go party and all catch it and get over it.

A very small part of me wonders if I should go ahead and get it, build up a little immunity, while there are still beds left.

But then the non-asshole, non-selfish part of me takes over and tells the other part that that's a dumb f'ning idea.

Yeh, nevermind potential permanent lung damage. Your immunity* will be so cool!

If anything I have heard (no idea how much truth there is to it) that there have been a number of people that have been reinfected.

Also, yeah that permanent scar tissue inside your lungs that could result is no joke. Enjoy being out of breath regularly for the rest of your life.

There is one individual on my facebook feed who keeps posting the same three things over and over:

1) The flu is worse (along with annual flu death statistics)

2) A doctor he "knows" says this is blown way out of proportion (this doctor is one of the leading voices in anti-vaxxing and has been shunned by the scientific community)

3) Any numbers about cases and deaths are fake news fear mongering meant to intentionally ruin the economy


And then ends by inviting anyone who refuses to give into fear over to his house for dinner.

My daughter and I have been doing a lot of bike riding. We usually end up at her school where she'll ride around the parking lot with a couple of other kids. As long as they stay on their bikes, I've found it a good way for her to get some exercise and socialize while maintaining social distancing.

If you and your wife are both working from home, you may want to consider finding another family to form a socialization group with.

Please, please, please let this happen.

I'm ready for a sorta-scientific test. Lets see how fast COVID-19 can spread in Lynchburg! I haven't been through that shithole in 20 years, but I'm pretty sure it's full of Deplorables.

And Jerry Falwell Jr. has done the impossible. I thought his dad was horrible... this dude is a cross between Cpt. Redneck Dick Murdock and Franklin Graham. Hopefully a bullet pierces through his torso... enough to keep him alive, just enough to blow through a straw and wear a colostomy bag for the remainder of his life.

Some idiots in Kentucky had a corona virus party.

One of the party-goers has since tested positive.

I think I read somewhere that at least a dozen Liberty students got the disease after the campus re-opened.

it seems like if everyone just stayed at home/on their property for 2.5 weeks with enough food (the only problem, I guess), it'd be fine

obviously it's more complicated than that, but that's a good start

I dunno y'all...this one guy I went to high school with said that this is all a hoax from the commie dummocrats to get the American people to give up their freedoms...also he said vaccinations are bad


I mean he obviously knows more than all the medical professionals that went through years of education and devoting their lives to understanding this.

An elected Republican said yesterday that there are "more important things than living" when asked about reopening.

That ^^^^ being a sincere protestor is very believable.

that may be a protester of the protests (hope so), but some of the actual protesters in some of the pics are wearing masks. which is kind of funny.

It's not like people wearing masks while expressing sincerely held beliefs is totally unknown in our country.

Quote :
"Rock musician Ted Nugent announced he has tested positive for the coronavirus in a Facebook live video in which he repeatedly used racist slurs to refer to COVID-19, spit on the floor and promoted anti-vaccine conspiracy theories.

“Everybody told me that I should not announce this,” the conservative rocker said in the video on Monday.

Nugent, a staunch supporter of ex-President Donald Trump, previously called the pandemic a scam and has railed against public health restrictions.

“I have had flu symptoms for the last 10 days. I thought I was dying. I mean, just a clusterfuck,” Nugent said in the video. “I got the Chinese shit.”

Nugent said he had a “stuffed-up head” and “body aches.”

“My God, what a pain in the ass. I literally can hardly crawl out of bed the last few days. But I did, I crawled,” he said.

Nugent said he was now quarantining.

Still, he repeated his refusal to receive a COVID-19 vaccine ? a stance he first took last year in defiance of regulatory approvals and public health experts worldwide who have deemed the shots safe and effective.

“Nobody knows what’s in it,” Nugent said, falsely, in the Facebook live video. “If you can’t even honestly answer our questions of exactly what’s in it and why are you testing it on human beings and forcing it on people in such a short period of time?”"

Is there a point to getting the vaccine if you've just had COVID?

Wouldn't you already have the antibodies?
