A city 1000km from Wuhan just declared a full lockdown. This is a lockdown on enter the city. r/China comments
Does anyone want to take a shot at explaining how this new virus will not give China a hard landing?
@VintageNaginta I have no idea how screwed up you were. After the last guy I've given up on trying to figure that out.
Its probably a good strategy to make money efficiently and then to fill in the gaps with lifting (like we do). In the end I see it as a simulation. Simulation doesn't have to mean virtual (and that isn't what I meant). In the modern world its possible to make such a stream lined money making process that there really isn't even a need to put on underwear all day while killing it. Then all of a sudden you have some motivation to do push ups but realize that your dick will be awkwardly and painfully hitting the ground, so you should probably suit up first. In such cases wearing underwear is just pure unrestrained ambition. There isn't much point for the laziest fucks.
Step it up some levels to fully clothed go-getter and even going around taking walks is just to simulate actually needing to go somewhere, because you need to do something that requires getting there. Maybe its just me but its super easy to have life dicked and its just incredibly easy. Its so easy that most of the people who have it as easy as me are in abominable condition. All your calories, information and even women belong to be me (click click click). It can be depressing or funny.Read More
@VintageNaginta Maan as someone who doesn't smoke often what the hell am I supposed to do with that weed? Its ridiculous. Give me some half-ass outdoor neglected weed over your monstrosity any day. I'm getting high just looking at the photo. Tomorrow is Sunday and I'm thinking about having a coffee. Mmm cauffeee. Well imagine a simple coffee was too grampa for the kids so I had to snort twenty expressos dehydrated down to a powder. So chill the fuck out before that thing mutates and starts attacking people.
@VintageNaginta A non-"lifting" farmer is generally pretty tight unless he just pounds so many beers on top of his heavy meals that he still ends up fat. The real threat is for people like myself who are basically professional brain-in-a-jars doing glorified sodoku puzzles all day. Its absolutely not enough to feel good if I just hop into a car, sit on my ass all day, then hop into a car, then lift weights, then hop into a car again.
Forty five minutes of gym time isn't enough to make me feel good when I'm doing jack shit in all other aspects of my life. When factoring in safety at all hours, Easter Europe is by far my favourite because I can get in an easy half hour of walking on the laziest days. Often times its 90 minutes or more added up. Add in some pushups and stretches on quick computer breaks and no we're talking something approaching a sustainable level of activity.
People who do physical work probably have other problems like not knowing enough, particularly about the wider world. I think that telling a guy who walks around ten hours a day lifting moderately heavy things to LIFT is a ridiculous thing that could only be thought up by people like us who are in situations where life meaning needs to be derived from simulations of harder times.Read More
@destraht Unsurprising, unforutately. When populations are too dense the likelihood of widespread epidemics increase astronomically. It's like nature's way of holding the human population in check since nothing else will.
Can only hope that the virus can be addressed before it has an opportunity to cross borders.
@destraht Two weeks asymptomatic and 97% survival sounds bad. Real. Bad. (The more people walk around not feeling sick==more people exposed to the virus.) From Malaysia by the most popular flights, Indonesia, Singapore, and Thailand will start reporting infections soon. And that is just thinking about what comes out of Malaysia.
Foreign employers are going to get hosed in China. BREAKING NEWS: China Issues New Employment Rules For Dealing with the Coronavirus.
I need to get up on Kyle Bass's China market doomsday predictions (before this black swan). Between last years unprecedented pig culling, Hong Kong and the now 56 million person lockdown/quarantine in Hubei it seems like it would be difficult to prevent an unwinding.
If the virus is prevented from getting out of control in the US then the dollar should get more than its usual boost up from a large crisis. The virus is now in Malaysia, which also has large numbers of Chinese businessmen and high population density. Its appearing to be solidifying that the virus has a two week asymptomatic period. That combined with a ~3% mortality rate makes it quite a menace to productivity and free travel.
The thing is that so much of the world is now perma-Japan with the can kicking money printing. Its been a long time since a correction so the question is will this virus be the event that forces it out. Additionally, the elites who have profited on everything just love to (pay people to) pin the cause on the donkey as they walk away from blame.Read More
New SARS Coronovirus:
- 2nd case found in Chicago
- Now 40 million under quarantine travel restriction
- 900+, 26 dead, 70% dead increase since yesterday.
- Massive hospital being build for Feb. 3.
- Sick are being turned away from hospitals.
- Oil will be lower, only question of how much.
Its much larger than 900 infected.
