Re: Miscellaneous COVID-19/Corona Virus Discussion, Questions, etc.

Last summer's bush fire smoke killed 450, and affected 80%, but they didn't shut the country down for that? https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-05-26/bushfire-royal-commission-hearings/12286094 Makes ya wonder who's gunna take responsibility for the thousands ...

Re: Weather in Udon ?

Still raining quietly but steadily out here.
That's 3 1/2 hours of it since the thunderstorm at 4pm.
Hope it can go all night?

Re: Post Covid ecomony

And, I know for a fact that many "Legal" Mexicans in California are not getting $11 per hour.
And, the "Non Legal" Mexicans are getting a lot less than them, especially if they are working for the "Legal" Mexicans.
But, they have to accept whatever the're offered.
No other choice

Your point is, what ??
My point is that people, even alcoholics, don't need a corona virus or alcohol ban, to think about how they manage their lives.

The alcoholics have an opportunity for a new lease on life.
Should read, the alcoholics have a new outlook on ending their lives earlier .
So, ya think they've never thought of that before?????

Yeah,
Been there a bit and you don't realize what's going on until a local gives you the story, (which is also hard to come by).
Then, you see a different world.
Not nice in some respects either.

But, such is life, as 1 hanged person once said. :lol:

Re: Post Covid ecomony

I don't think India will ever rival China, because of the caste system. A higher caste won't even talk to a lower caste, let alone employ them, communicate with them, pay them properly, and look after them, (like a good employer should). I can understand the IT industry success there, but I would be...

Re: Alcohol sales ban!

Well that is good for those businesses Bound to see an increase in trade and profits Unfortunately, not yet. As been discussed previously, somewhere on this forum, businesses need at least 50% turnover, to just pay operating costs, so, at 30% capacity, their profits are a long way off yet. Unfortun...

Jon,
I agree.
With those kilometers, it's still new.
Bargain, but doesn't fit the "impress my friends" crew.

Re: New research on Corona Virus. It's just another Flu

The heading, "just another flu" wasn't mean't to say it was another strain of flu, it was a general comment that it is another virus with the same consequences as the flu. And I will be proven true, given sufficient time. A general comment, not a medical conclusion.
