    toilet paper or.. someone else t-shirt 😁

     

    Now serious. That one woman was in hospital and had contact with at least 50 people in hospital. Now hospital is separated from outside world. Many of those people probably left hospital and didn't know that woman was positive with covid19. All hospitals employes that are at home at orderer to stay at home on force. One of nurses is actually living very close to my home.

     

    Besides weather is rather bad here in Poland - strong wind, yesterday was snowing. Not the best conditions to stay healthy. Right now from time to time I see only people with dogs.

    Hahaha, so tp or t-shirts! 😂

    Right now it seems being a hospital worker is by far the scariest job to have in the world!

    I guess people in Poland won't have to worry about trying to socially isolate due to the weather keeping you guys in.

    If only someone with a sense of responsibility was president...

    https://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/health/health-problems/coronavirus-donald-trump-refuses-to-take-responsibility-after-downplaying-the-threat-for-months/news-story/f1c9df3ff16a7c277142216d2929cc96

    As it is, America will soon be flooded with the dead bodies of the poor.

     

    Whatever happened to the saying "The buck stops here" ? For Trump, it stops somewhere else - anywhere else - but never with him.

     

    Well, how Trump deals with this situation will inform if he gets elected again or not. I think that maybe him not taking responsibility actually makes his base like him more (which you would never think with presidents before him). It seems that everything Trump does appears ironic at first, but only ends up strengthening his base. I think how he deals with people who lose their jobs from this will be pivotal.

    Now, for the 2nd theory. This one is rather complex - and it's not over. Again, I don't really believe it - but who knows? Perhaps there's an element of truth in there somewhere.

     

    As we all know (or are told), this virus made the transition to humans in Wuhan province, somewhere in China. A doctor raised the alarm and was told to keep quiet.

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/china-silenced-doctor-who-first-raised-alarm-about-coronovirus-nyt-reports

    I contend that China intended this virus to be spread around the world, and the doctor was supposed to say nothing. A few weeks later he was conveniently found dead.

    https://globalnews.ca/news/6705990/coronavirus-chinese-doctor-death-report/

    Finally, after hiding the facts for 7 weeks, allowing the virus to spread in the community and tourists, China finally took action.

    https://arstechnica.com/science/2020/02/quarantine-camps-door-to-door-searches-in-wuhan-as-coronavirus-rampages-on/

    The latest we hear is that China has it "under control". If this is true, then soon the world will have a healthy China, while the rest are falling down sick, with hospitals overrun, dead piling up, etc etc. Did China already have an antidote? How did they control it so quickly?

    The world's workers will increasingly turn to working from home, placing an increased reliance upon the internet and telecommunications in general.

    Wouldn't this be a convenient time for a certain nation to attack another nation's internet? Or even for a certain nation to start a war, while everybody else is sick?

    Or, at the very least, for the world's economies to crash and leave themselves open to control from a nation that has "3rd world" economic status but is in fact the world's most powerful.

    Think about it.

    Also, think about why their state-controlled company is so aggressive in getting a foothold in other country's telecommunications, even suing countries that have locked them out.

    https://www.afr.com/companies/telecommunications/huawei-confirms-it-will-sue-us-government-20190307-h1c3r9

    Why are they so desperate?

    This is definitely an interesting theory! I do sometimes wonder if the reports in China are true or not, and if they actually have stopped new infections? It's almost hard to believe considering how much the rest of the world is just beginning to deal with this, but then again I feel most of the world didn't take it seriously. I am, however, doubtful that China intended for the virus to be spread. I am inclined to believe that this was an accident and that it did start in a "wet market," as researchers have pointed out to wet markets in the past as a possible origin point to new viruses. I really recommend watching this interview (the first 20 minutes are the most informative):

    Hehehe, I've not been in stores for 2 days now but still when I've been in sotres I have not  seen to many people . Toilet paper run out initially quickly but has been restocked fast. There was was shortage for bread for a short time. Right now I have at least one confirmed sick in my city and that might change a lot. Looking from my windows at city it look like deserted, only rarely peoples with dogs so people are probably scared and finally sitting at home. Shops were closed in sunday in my country but that's normal. Tomorrow we will see how much situation has changed my city.

    Wow, that's insane! Can't believe your city is deserted with only 1 confirmed sick. That's paranoia at its finest.

    But anyway, you didn't answer my question! What about the bidets? Do you guys prefer the water washing or the toilet paper? :D

    I currently have 2 theories that contradict each other, so I'll put the other one into another post.

    The basis of a good conspiracy theory is to gather up "facts", as presented by the media, and weave them together with a bit of logical thinking, to produce an outcome. It all must be entirely logical. In my case, I don't even believe these theories - but they make sense. Now, for the first theory, and this one is pretty easy to shoot down.

     

    Ponder this question. Do you PERSONALLY know anyone with this virus? It mustn't be what you heard in the media, or some rumour from your friend's sister's boyfriend - it must be someone you personally know.

    If the answer is YES, then the theory ends here and now. Otherwise, let's continue on. Does this virus pandemic even exist? Or is it some kind of social experiments by governments, to find out what would happen in a real emergency? If so, one can just imagine the amount of lawsuits when it's declared over.

    That's a good point. I don't know anyone personally, but I do feel it would be hard to fake at this point as so many celebrities and doctors are also coming out and saying they have it. It would definitely be insane if we all found out it was fake... can't imagine what that would do to people's minds. There would be zero trust left in the world. 😂

    Our state is going on lockdown later today at 5:00 PM.  Stores are either closed now or closing later today and the grocery stores have reduced the hours they are going to be open.

     

    It is very quiet this morning with little to no traffic from people going to work.

     

    That's the nice thing about this virus. Work from home, less driving, more time to think, or drive yourself crazy! 🤣

    Rather does not want to write about. In Poland right now is silent - people in my city does not hoarding shops, we still have toilet paper, rice etc. At least yesterday it was true.

     

    Personally I made some shopping just to not need go out every day.

    Curious, do people in Poland use bidets more than toilet paper? If I had to make a guess, toilet paper is probably only prevalent in countries where it's the common method to clean the butt.

    Been panic buying of toilet paper for weeks. Pretty much all sport cancelled or played to empty stands. Stockmarket crashed 30%, worst ever.

    Recently, the panic buying of everything people can get their hands on. The world has gone crazy.

    America doesn't seem to be taking it seriously. There's been less testing there overall than South Korea does in a single day. This, I've heard, is because of America's corrupted health care system which only exists for the rich. The poor can't afford either the testing or the hospital treatment.

    I have come up with certain conspiracy theories, we'll see soon enough if they are more than theories.

     

    The panic buying is something I haven't quite understood. This is a virus -- not a fire, earthquake, or actual war. One can go to the grocery store and wear a mask if they are too paranoid.

    I also agree and it doesn't seem like America is taking it seriously. They currently have the highest growth rate of people getting infected, but this also may have to do with increased testing.

    What are the conspiracy theories?


  9. Due to various site issues, we had to restore a backup of the forums from early October 2019. Unfortunately, some posts/accounts were lost between October 2019 and January 2020 (if you made an account during that time, you may need to create a new one). However, the good news is that the forums should be more stable now. Welcome back everyone!

  10. I don't have any machine to upgrade from, also the lack of security worries me, where half the OS is stored on cloud servers. Also they know all your passwords and share them around with whoever they see fit. I *might* get it for a machine that isn't on the net, if it's able to be done.

     

     

    How do you know they would share them? And there are a lot of privacy controls for Windows 10, so you can turn most, if not all of that cloud stuff off.


  11. Hey, it's me!

     

    Thanks everyone. Now to figure out why my sweet avatar pic isn't working...

     

    It's a png file less than 50kB. :sad:

     

    Hmm...before I look into this, could you try saving it as a JPG file and uploading again? Let me know if that fixes it.


  12. Hey Tux,

     

    It's Huggybaby here with a temporary new account.

     

    I have an account on this site already, but I can't remember the password. Then I try to reset my password, but the email never shows up in my AOL account. So I'm stuck.

     

    Maybe Robert can help?

     

    I know this probably isn't the proper forum for this subject, but if other users are having a hard time migrating for the same reason this might help them too.

     

    Congrats on your new digs.

    Please check your PM.

    Ignore my PM.. didn't notice Robert's response.
