4PM Central, and no I'm not kidding.
We don't joke about Tetris boyo
Looks like things are about to explode in West Virginia...
Note halfway through that he shows the doughnut...
A relative owns a business and sent me over the Executive Order
You're right. "Essential" is a pretty wide net. She's in IT and info security. Keep on working
. Ya obviously he had some extra TP and took the offer.
Well, that's the whole joke.
You really think so? I will be working from home, but my family and I Are ready to stay home, inside, for two weeks or more if it would help curtail the virus. I’ve got internet and Direct TV (unfortunately, but very functional) and food. As long as I keep those, I’m ready to go. Hard for me to understand, besides getting food once a week, how we, as a society, couldn’t do his.
Cherry spitting would be a wonderfully safe coronavirus event.
For everyone who understands, accepts, and implements social distancing like you, there are many more people that don't care, don't believe anything will happen to them, or are just flat out ignorant. Here's some real examples from stuff I've seen on Facebook the last few days.
They think it means they need to party with their close friends because "our group is less than 10 so we'll be fine".
They think it means they need to invite just their parents over for a night of playing cards so they aren't lonely.
They think it means going shopping at Lowe's.
There are a ton of people that are very social creatures and they will ignore the advice and make up excuses why they need to be out with friends/family.
This is why America is screwed.
Millions of working people (maybe 10s of millions) didn't suddenly lose their jobs. We need to find away to keep healthy people working and the older generation maybe needs to stay home and take one for team USA until treatments are found.
If you can work from home absolutely do it. Not suggesting we shouldn’t. At the same time though in order for you to get that food grocery stores need to stay open. Trucks need to remain running to supply those stores. Warehouse workers need to keep working to load those trucks. That type of stuff keeps repeating down the supply chain.
Even stuff as simple as office supplies need to keep working so that people are able to keep working.
My main point is even the minor stuff that we can all survive without for a while is at some point necessary for a mentally healthy population. I don’t think we can stay like we are for multiple months. I am naturally a person who stays at home most of the time so I frankly haven’t had to make many changes other than not going to the grocery store as often. Even I as someone naturally inclined to stay inside and isolated needs some societal interaction to stay mentally healthy. Maybe I can survive a month or two without that but at some point even I need it.
For the most part, I think Iowans and our leadership have handled this pretty well so far. Of course we have some inherent advantages too. The numbers would indicate ( total # of positives and +/- result ratio) we probably aren't one of the states the Feds are willing to flood with test kits right now. Victims of our own success, as it were.
The hard part is we still have people taking vacations and coming back to the state possibly infected.
Agree. We still haven't seen the results of the spring break travel returners either.
