Jeez, I did mean that as a joke. I hope he didn't quit the boards because of that. If so, I'm really sorry. Just trying to inject a little levity into the conversation.

Wouldn't worry about it.

Best Korea I mean North Korea reports first case.


Leaves Turkmenistan as the last country with more than a million as "virus free".

Well, that's just rude and completely uncalled for. There's 0% chance of a reasonable discussion on the topic now.

If an opinion on legality was formed without reference to the order in question, we weren't starting with a discussion based on reason.

Opinions in conflict with reality are largely the reason we are in our current predicament, so I'm rather fed up with them.

Conflating this with conspiracies and refusing to wear masks as a political point is a bit extreme.

I agree with your position about the order. It's just a little far to compare not understanding how state orders work and arguing against the world's doctors after they have had an extensive information campaign to tell people what to do.

Interestingly, I didn't mention either of those things, so... not really persuasive.

We aren't talking about Damage on a Miss, or some other frivolity. This is a thing that impacts thousands of lives - indeed, perhaps thousands of deaths. Coming to an opinion without even reading the order is not what I'd call reasonable or responsible.

Coming up on a hundred fifty thousand dead in the US. That's not extreme enough for you? How many more dead will it need to be to justify stridency in your eyes? 200K? Half a million?

I think you're tilting at windmills here.
 



A friend of mine was diagnosed with Corona last week. She is in self quarantine right now. She can't see her kid, and the virus drains her of all her energy. It is very unpleasant. She got it from a colleague at work, so now all her co workers need to be in quarantine for at least 2 weeks.

Meanwhile in Belgium cases are again on the rise, and I fear it is only a matter of time before the same thing happens in the Netherlands. The Dutch government is looking into the option of perhaps making masks mandatory; on the street and inside any store. Currently masks are only required in public transport.

Yeah, Japan's in slow burn too. It's nerve wracking to be honest.

On the plus side, got me some new half shield masks for classes, which do make pronunciation drills a lot better. But, still no word on my university classes as to whether we'll be live or online after mid term.

In relatively good news, the Sinclair media group has at least delayed its plan for airing “Plandemic” on its subsidiary stations after significant pushback was received on its social media accounts.

I wouldn't group that is good news, as much as it is "not bad news".

Maybe that's because I'm a glass empty kind of person, but I generally don't see people failing to do bad things as good.
