    I think there is more to this virus than we've been told. I suspect it has HIV characteristics.

    In the meantime, millions of people are missing elective surgeries that may cause them to lose their lives. Will they be called COVID-19 related?

    Why Is This Texas Hospital Furloughing Nurses?

    Picture how stupid local governments are going to look when they won't let anyone go back to work without a mask. It's coming.

    After our family gathering for christmas, 12 of 21 of us were down with some type of flu like virus (Covid-19?) We were down anywhere from four to eight days . Had we known about covid-19 back then we would have probably been much worse because of the fear panic factor.We all bounced back. We have had the flu from prior Christmas gatherings, but it seemed to effect a small portion of us(like five) so I dont know what to think. By the way I dont know why anyone panics because someone goes for a car ride. beats all the other alternatives to getting out and social distancing at the same time. But what do I know.

    This whole ordeal hasn't had much effect on me. If I need to leave the house there isn't anyone that's going to stop me.

    I'm going to get paid for doing everything I normally do anyway. It's not unusual for my truck to sit for a month. To me it's more like welcome to my world.

    I might actually take that money and buy a Harley. It might actually get me out of the house a little more.

    Updated chart with the actuals vs. the original predictions from 3/23.

    The trend line is pretty clearly below prediction (this is good news!), but not ridiculously off. Big Data is pretty fascinating.

    The numbers would be thru the roof in my area if that was the case, I'm not saying it isn't happening I doubt it's anything dramatic.

    Now when I picture places like Las Vegas they're more likely to be throwing bodies in the river specifically so they can't be counted.
