Thought about imgur or something but I don't wanna sign up for more stuff...
That's why I used discord... because I was too lazy to use Dropbox or any of these other sites. It's so easy a silver tiger can do it...
That's an install I can do without right now :)

as to why i pointed out CNN and the times... they are real big on spreading panic with misinformation. you can't really take anything that is said on those networks as the facts.

News: Do you believe corona was man-made?

Pompeo: yes it was

News: but your office says it wasn’t

Pompeo: They're correct. I have no reason to disagree with that


I Love this White House and the Administration
Come on Trump 2020

you're doing it wrong.







i've been enjoying it tbh.. like aside from the people dying and the financial stuff.. it's kinda nice to have people spending more time at home.
i think a lot of interesting stuff has happened because of it, like changes in lifestyle. changes in people's mentalities.

i pretty much did this already anyway cos i've pretty much been an internet hermit since i was a teenager anyway, so doesn't bother me at all. but i think it's interesting seeing how it's effecting other people.

im normal now haha :lol:
or rather to me, everyone else is becoming normal.

like they are complaining businesses are suffering and stuff.. but what, cos people aren't getting as many take aways, or spending $100's on meals or visits to the cinema?
cook some proper food, it's not that expensive. sort income inequality out so stuff doesn't cost $100s... enjoy your home and your family. appreciate the value of having one.

honestly.. it seems to me like people are just addicted to consumerism, and this whole thing is withdrawal.
too many fake people with fake lives...

I agree with most things, the only point you may want to give a second thought is the thing about the industry going down.
No people working means shortage of supplies in every regard, hence everything (and I really mean it) gets a shortage. Some businesses will not recover, with people losing their jobs and their livelihoods.
So it's important to open up again, and at the same time it's very challenging to find the right balance between the risk of people dying from Covid-19 and the risk of people dying from a bad economy.
On an important footnote, the whole thing could have been avoided if all the world had drawn their lessons from MERS and SARS some years ago. It was all there, plain and clear. But in reality people were like "oh, the far east, this can never happen here, because [put some shitty excuse here]".

Also, the other day for some reason I imagined Calvin's voice to sound like Venom (no, not the band - the movie :D ).

and i know what you're saying Gargl, but they shoulda modernized the infrastructure to require less workers a long time ago.. mechanized stuff. the economic side they need to sort out to fit that as well, but they've needed to change that for the last 100 years.

In germany we don't say "automatisation", we call it "bedingungsloses grundeinkommen", and i think it's beautfiull and equally useless.

was in the kitchen before talking to one of the other people in the house; he was saying how Aldi has no ques and is fully stocked, i was saying how most supermarkets are, the shortages didn't really happen. except bizarrely for cucumbers, everywhere is sold out of cucumbers... took a moment to realize why. ;)

Trump on coronavirus: "If we stop testing right now, we'd have very few cases, if any"


I’m guessing that response was to back what the Gov. of Florida said about the sudden rise in COVID-19 cases when he said........


“ The cases are up because we are doing more testing “

I Love this White House and the Administration and his buddies
