Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

you do know that breast feeding is natural and free

I enjoy it.

Quoted from bwill:

I believe this is untrue. On March 15th it was reported that Rand Paul was at a ball at the speed museum here in Louisville with people who tested positive.
https://www.courier-journal.com/story/news/local/2020/03/15/louisville-coronavirus-cases-museum-speed-ball-guest-tests-positive/5054435002/
My guess is that this is why he got tested. He knew he had contact with people who had the virus and was tested for it.

And I believe that anyone that thinks they might have it based on exposure should quarantine. Or they’re an irresponsible douche bag.

Quoted from o-din:

For some reason it hasn't been as bad this last week.
Perhaps I just miss the old men telling me WWII stories while at work.

I would highly recommended netflix Ken burns WW2 documentary

#1554 8 months ago

I highly recommend "Nathan For You" on Comedy Central or Hulu.

A superb Canadian export.

#1555 8 months ago

Yeah, the biggest gang of all us the US military. And i hope they wipe the street with assholes that think they can take the law into their own hands. If I pay my taxes for anything, it’s to clean the slate with assholes that think anarchy works.

Quoted from o-din:

If this shit gets way out of control, there are plenty of gangs and other armed people that will be taking matters into their own hands. Thumbs up to those that are ready to protect themselves. Although a gang might be a little hard to fend off by one's self, it might make them go after easier prey. Or it could piss them off even more.

The Rush Episode is my favourite!

#1560 8 months ago
Quoted from PinJim:

There are going to be a lot of people out of work. There is serious potential for people to loot, riot, etc. While I do not live in an area where I think that will occur - it’s not outside the realm of possibility. If people get desperate, crazy shit can happen. I’ll leave it at that.

Yeah, just shoot freely. Sounds good.

He has really stepped up.

And if nothing else good can come from all this, maybe when the dust settles, this country will have finally found a way to work as one.

Quoted from BobSacamano:

I've got a WW2 era grenade in the basement ready for anyone who tries to set foot on my property and take my carton of TP.

And I’ll throw bleach and acid in your face and stab your neck with a butcher knife.

Arm up!

Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

I recently saw the Xmas Special - it's kind of a prequel to season 1 and it was really good. Might be my fave. But the Rush episode is a classic too.

#1569 8 months ago
Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

So, with all due respect, you do know that breast feeding is natural and free and the BEST lifetime boost to the immune system ever?

Is this a recommendation for HIS immune system, his baby's....or both?

Calm down. I watched it on TV like everybody else. I only meant I was alive and paying attention.

But if it makes you feel any better I was a block away when Cal State Fullerton got shot up and when the guy went postal in Dana Point.

I cant say I'm feeling any optimism as it stands right now. I wish there was a little light coming through at the tunnel, but that could be months away.

#1577 8 months ago

pinball_gizzard We've been told we're on day 7 of 15. What realistically happens on day #15? Will the curve be flat enough, so that we can resume our normal lives? We get reports from China that they're "going back to work", but without a vaccine or herd immunity, aren't they just as vulnerable as they were back in January before they quarantined 50+ million people?

Quoted from Jaybird815:

It’s unfortunate, and childish, he only does it to get a rise, but I’m still not understanding how being called your nationality is deemed offensive.

Unfortunate and childish. Or petty. Two/three words you don’t want associated with ultimate leadership.

In the HISTORY of this GREAT nation- or let’s stay 100 years - how many times have we had to even entertain this folly?

How is this good? WhY is this good? I’m serious. I entreat you. I BEG you. Why is this good? How does this help? What the FUCK is going on here?

#1580 8 months ago
Quoted from Honch:

I cant say I'm feeling any optimism as it stands right now. I wish there was a little light coming through at the tunnel, but that could be months away.

I guess a lot of my optimism is coming from that fact that I've been sitting here all day doing almost exactly what I've been doing at work the last eight years, and soon checks will be arriving to pay me for it.

#1581 8 months ago
Quoted from BobSacamano:

We've been told we're on day 7 of 15. What realistically happens on day #15?

That’s when they’ll roll out the 90 day plan, and I’m not joking at all.

Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

True, but women who have stopped breastfeeding have a hard time restarting or making enough for an older baby. Need formula.

Here’s a sobering account from a 31-year-old nurse practitioner in Albany GA (my state).

“COVID19 is not like the flu...at all... How do I know? Because I’ve lived through it to tell the tale!

Memoirs of a 31 y.o. male with no underlying health conditions.

March 3, 2020-Bronchitis like illness started, dry cough, no fever

March 5, 2020-Low grade fever starts, still thinking bronchitis

March 6, 2020-Fever climbs from 99.8 to 102.6 in one hour, thought it was flu and was now outside the Tamiflu window, stayed home for symptom management.

March 9, 2020-Fever of >102 continues, this isn’t flu, go to urgent care, diagnosed with pneumonia, started on Levaquin.

March 11, 2020-3 doses of Levaquin in, no improvement in symptoms, go to ER. Admitted, swabbed for COVID19, IV antibiotics got pneumonia on chest CT.

March 12, 2020-Get to a room and placed on supplemental oxygen via nasal cannula, 1 liter per minute (lpm). I’m only able to achieve 500 on my incentive spirometer, for perspective-my healthy lungs could hit 4000.

March 13, 2020-O2 saturation begins to decline, oxygen increased to 2 lpm, then 3 lpm, then 5 lpm. Oxygen saturation 88% on 5 lpm. The decision is made to use high flow (vapotherm) and move to ICU. Placed on 40 lpm and 60% oxygen. I’m terrified at this point because vapotherm is all that is standing between me and the ventilator. This is the moment I would have died at home had I not come to the hospital when I did. I would have respiratory arrested in my bed.

March 14, 2020-I have a bad coughing spell, my oxygen saturation drops to the 80’s. I’m still on 40 lpm and 60%. I’m trying to gasp for air, but because of the condition of my lungs, can only take small breaths without coughing more. I feel as though I’m about to die, my heart is racing, oxygen still low, and I’m sweating profusely. Im in respiratory distress! I pressed my call light trying to get the attention of anyone who can help. My nurse was in another room tending to another sick patient. Fortunately he sees me and comes to my room. I am now on 40 lpm and 100% oxygen, next step is the ventilator. I’m terrified. My breathing slows as my oxygen saturation slowly returns to the 90’s. I’m weaned back down to 60%. The same thing happens again in the night, and again I thought I was about to leave this world. Again I’m on 100%, this time for several hours. I’m slowly weaned again to 60%.

March 15, 2020-My morning arterial blood gas (which hurts like a ) is normal. I get weaned to 50%.

March 16, 2020-My oxygen saturation is 97%, I’m weaned further to 30 lpm and 40%.

March 17, 2020-I’ve been in ICU 4 days, forced to use a bedpan because my oxygen saturation drops if I turn or even move too much. I am unable to clean myself; I’m feeling completely helpless and so embarrassed, but my nurses were great and very understanding. I now truly understand my patients’ feelings from all these years of nursing. I’m weaned to 25 lpm and 30%. I’m going to the medical floor.

March 18, 2020-I’m weaned to 28%. I can achieve 1500 on my incentive spirometer finally. I’m hopeful to be weaned to a regular nasal cannula. The provider comes in. I’ve been waiting for my swab results. I tested positive for COVID19...6.5 days of waiting for the outside lab to process the lab. I’m relieved because I finally have a diagnosis, a reason I’ve been so sick. I’m weaned to 4 lpm on a regular nasal cannula, 4 hours later I’m weaned to 2 lpm. 4 hours later I’m weaned to room air. My oxygen saturation stats 93% and above all night.

March 19, 2020-As I write this, I’m waiting to attempt a 6 minute walk test to see if my oxygen stays up, so I can go home. I’ve had no visitors this entire time due to my isolation precautions.

Guys, this is why social isolation is a thing. As a 31 y.o., I wasn’t supposed to get sick. I wasn’t supposed to be admitted to the hospital or the ICU for that matter. We’ve already had several deaths from COVID19 in this area. I thank God I wasn’t one of them! However, many won’t be as fortunate as I have been. Many will die, especially those with any lung or heart problems. So please, I beg you to #stayhome “

#1584 8 months ago
Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

So, with all due respect, you do know that breast feeding is natural and free and the BEST lifetime boost to the immune system ever?

And would be fantastic if that was an option. Not every woman has the ability to produce and it really is heartbreaking and demoralizing to watch your kid whither cause your mammory glands don’t work right.

#1585 8 months ago
Quoted from Trogdor:

True, but women who have stopped breastfeeding have a hard time restarting or making enough for an older baby. Need formula.

Understood, but why any healthy/capable women doesn’t it is a head scratcher, basically free and healthier.

#1586 8 months ago
Quoted from swampfire:

This nurse was probably way overworked and rundown which contributed to how sick he got. Been there, done that for sure.

Quoted from vex:

I think he said China virus, indicating the origin of it. A virus is not a race, but its passport was clearly stamped in China.

For the benefit of what? Why does this freaking matter? It antogonizes the world’s “other” superpower, and, last time I checked, a major owner of US debt and property. This is just STUPiD posturing. And if you think it s important, you probably thought it was important to meet the town dweeb at the flagpole after school. Only China isn’t the town dweeb. And if you think they are, YOU are the town retard.

That scares the f#ck out of me. What's the co-pay on a visit like that?

We're only two/three weeks past being told that the "corona-flu" was just going to affect a minority of the population that was old and already sick.

Turns out that was another lie. Or maybe a "hunch" gone wrong? Alternative facts?

Quoted from Pablito350:

It shouldn't be used as a term because Asian people are being harassed. Throwing meat to his base by being a "Bad Boy" is not helping those people in their everyday lives. Those are his people too.
Just because he can't have his hateful rallies does not excuse his behavior during this crisis. He needs to be a calming factor, not an inciter.



And if you asshats didn’t get it the first two times

Quoted from swampfire:

I wanted to avoid politics, but it kind of enrages me to hear “we inherited an obsolete system” over and over again. When you’re 3 years into your term, you own what you have. It hits home, because any engineering manager who pulled that shit would be fired. You might get 6 months to blame your predecessor, but after that you own it.

O.M.G. Thank you! The LEADER of the free world shouldn’t be a sycophant to “previous standards” in a global FREAKING catastrophe.

Show some freaking SACK. Show freaking LEADERSHIP! You know, like Washington or Lincoln or Roosevelt. Like true freaking leaders! In crisis! You buffoon!

This was an OPPORTUNITY clown shoes. Not an excuse to deflect and rationalize.

ASShOLE LOSER FUCKHEAD!

Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

For the benefit of what? Why does this freaking matter? It antogonizes the world’s “other” superpower, and, last time I checked, a major owner of US debt and property. This is just STUPiD posturing. And if you think it s important, you probably thought it was important to meet the town dweeb at the flagpole after school. Only China isn’t the town dweeb. And if you think they are, YOU are the town retard.
