Quoted from MotorCityMatt:

Just watched American Factory on net flix because I am at home self quarantining. Watch it.

That plant is close to where I work at and I have had friends that work there. It pissed me off and let's just say it made me feel much different about the Chinese. You can decide for yourself if that's good or bad.

#866 10 months ago
Quoted from Gryszzz:

Did I tell you somebody 2 rooms down found bedbugs in their room?! The Louisville Ramada makes Motel 6 look like the Broadmoor. I never found any, but sanitized everything anyway.

That loud shitty ass metal music that you listen to probably scared the bed bugs to death and made them leave your room!

The American Factory documentary was produced by Barrack and Michelle Obama.

#1032 10 months ago
Quoted from cottonm4:

Figures ? I don't understand. Would you have rather the documentary not have been made? To me, it shows what can happen in the country. It seemed like an honest assessment of what happened to that plant, whether anybody likes it, or not.
All I can say is that I am glad I am retired and not have to deal with this kind of crap.
I will say this from what I saw when watching it. That young Chinese guy wanted to hang some Chinese posters and the boss said, "No, when in Rome, do as the Romans do. So some US posters went up.
I can't remember but I think that factory was flying the American flag. Japanese/American Honda dealerships fly the American flag. BMW flies the American flag. Actually, I think most dealerships fly the American flag, no matter where the cars are made.
Would you like to guess/know what flags GM, and Ford fly over in China? I would, too. But I am guessing they are not flying the American flag, even though China makes those, too.

They also said American workers are lazy and that they dont work efficiently. I have to disagree totally. F*ck them all!

#1046 10 months ago

I got out today to go get some food and the grocery stores and Wal Mart was packed. I went to CVS and people just seem to act like nothing is happening.......kinda weird.

I am noticing much less traffic on the roads In general but like I said the stores arent slowing down any. My future grocery trips will be online orders only. I dont want to go around people unless I a absolutely have to. I'm probably not going to be able to keep from getting it considering I work around a couple nasty MF's but I'm going to do my part and try to stay safe.

Quoted from dirkdiggler:

Anyone else remember the mouth watering smell that KFCs in the 80s and 90s emitted? I would be riding my bike as a kid and 2 to 3 blocks away you'd start to smell that smell. Damn you better exhaust/squirrel fans:/

I still like KFC chicken alot. It's pretty good stuff! Nobody makes a better chicken sandwich than Chic Fil a though. Popeye's has a great one now but it's still not chic fil a.

Quoted from Gunnut40:

I brought a black friend to who-dey's home. Sounds like a real racist to allow that.

Yeah and dont tell him how I ran him off and called him all kinds of bad names and stuff........oh yeah and how we are really good friends now also. I'm so racist.

#1592 10 months ago
Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

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.

Don't expect anyone else to protect you because they cant be everywhere. Hopefully you have the means to protect yourself, if not you are screwed..

#1599 10 months ago
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.

Don’t respond, report....though earlier today SOMEone said it was never called a hoax. Lol

I'm not saying the virus is a hoax. How about the newest witch hunt, would that be a better term?

#1709 10 months ago
Quoted from Gunnut40:

The USA has and will always be melting pot. We fight and bicker. It might look like we are our own worst enemy. When it comes down to it we come together like always. You will see.

This is true BUT...we are more divided than ever politically so something has got to give eventually. The shit will hit the fan eventually and people will have to choose their side.

#1713 10 months ago
Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

Singapore is doing Excellent, same as South Korea. From the past experiences with other Viruses, everyone was well stocked with masks, and they locked down really early.
This is the lesson to be learned. A 2-3 month supply of Masks per person, and more people can go out.
You cant go out without one, in most all urban areas. $30-$50 per person, for a 3 month supply.
On top of that they have the highest health care, at the lowest cost...roughly 1/3 ours.
Its a great model to use or adapt to fix our issues here in healthcare.

But but but....I thought masks dont help?

Quoted from Daditude:

I choose NFL. When is it starting...?

I dont know but Iam hoping between the warm weather coming and people staying home that this virus goes away and we can start the season on time. It looks like we are going to lose most of the MLB season as well. What are your thoughts?

Quoted from fosaisu:

Not sure I follow. Are you predicting a second civil war or something? The first one didn’t go so well, I’d hope we’d have more sense than to try that again.

I truly believe that we could be headed for that.

#1734 10 months ago
Quoted from Colsond3:

Aaandddd...we’re somehow back to the circuitous, cyclical banter about right vs. left.

No not at all. I dont talk right and left on here really. I honestly try and stay away from that stuff because I know that it's a no win situation and not allowed anyways.

#1738 10 months ago

How long can we continue to be in lockdown like this until we have a total economic collapse and go into a depression? Serious question. I gotta believe we are only weeks away.

#1764 10 months ago
Quoted from Utesichiban:

Unfortunately, I don't disagree. This is shaping up to be another Spanish Flu type pandemic with a lot of casualties domestically and globally.
I'm pretty scared for my elderly parents, and for myself. I have some asthma issues and this thing scares the hell out of me.

That's what everyone keeps saying but the death toll still doesnt seem to be astronomically high yet. Sure would be nice to see warm weather slow it down some and buy some more time for treatments and meds.

#1770 10 months ago
Quoted from Utesichiban:

Exactly why we’ve made the decision to sanitize and delay opening all packages and mail right now. As this thing continues to spread, who knows who has handled the deliveries and exactly how long this stuff lasts on paper and packaging.

And could we please stop all the unnecessary junk mail until this is over with??

#1779 10 months ago
Quoted from Daditude:

Large quantities of alcohol?

If theres any truth to that then most pinheads should be pretty safe.

#1781 10 months ago
Quoted from Gunnut40:

Well I have been thinking about the heat thing(temperature). I'm pretty sure it's UV light. Heat does jackshit and jack just left town! That is why the the other viruses die out in summer time. This is different animal it dies in UV light is the same but its very transmittable. Then boom some random ass skank infected you. Damn cloud cover!

That's true also but I read somewhere that this virus doesn't like temperatures over 79 degrees.

#1786 10 months ago
Quoted from o-din:

98.6 hasn't seemed to bother it much yet.

Yes I thought about that already also.

#1787 10 months ago

I have a feeling that the masks that all those people are wearing makes a person a lot more safer than what our experts are telling us.

#1792 10 months ago
Quoted from JodyG:

Pennsylvania's business shutdown starts at 8AM. Over 10,000 businesses applied for waivers...but they won't release the approval/denial statistics. These 10k businesses were ones from the generic listing of business sectors that were already ordered to close. Many businesses are already saying they will violate the order and keep working. My company supposedly applied for a waiver, even though we do nothing life sustaining...and i'm at work now. So long as these businesses feel they are more important than the people they are affecting, the US is doomed at stopping this virus in a timely manner. If it is so safe to be at work with 200 other people, I find it odd that upper management isn't out on the plant floor disinfecting surfaces to help others see that we are not in harms way. Oh wait, they are working from the comfort and safety of their own homes.

Yeah Ohio goes on a lockdown tonight at midnight but my company said F*ck you guys you're working anyways. Oh yeah and some idiot just got back from a cruise last week and he called off sick today. Between all of that and the nasty f*cking people that i have to share my work area with I know that I am 100% screwed. My company wouldn't shut down if a nuclear bomb got dropped on the building.

#1799 10 months ago
Quoted from RWH:

I have to call the hospital today as I'm scheduled for pulmonary test tomorrow but, to be honest I don't want to go in the hospital. I'm in the age bracket that is most at risk, although I question that with all the younger people coming up sick. Seems to me at this point there is no "at most risk" group, this virus is infecting and killing indiscriminately throughout our population.
Damn Who-dey, this will be the first time in 150yrs Cincinnati's Reds opening day parade will not take place. Lotta "first" unfortunately happening all over our nation during this outbreak.

Reschedule that test RW, it's not worth the risk dude. I would absolutely not go the hospital right now unless you think its totally neccessary.

When I left work this morning there was a lot of traffic, everything seemed normal. It's going to be interesting to see how traffic is tomorrow morning when the lockdown is in place. As of right now I dont too many Ohioans giving a shit about this virus. The stores are packed and there is plenty of traffic.

I will say that in the evenings there is less traffic for sure. Other than that though Ohio seems to be operating full steam ahead. Bummer about the Reds because this is the best team they've had in many many years.

#1812 10 months ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

It sounds like Michigan is the next date to go on lockdown. I'm glad I sold a game early last week while I could.

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Best way to protect yourself from Coronavirus ... don’t go to large gatherings (10 people or more).

This makes zero sense to me why they are telling people this. It only takes one person to infect you. Im staying away from everyone i can!

#1828 10 months ago
Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Germany has finally come out and directed people to stay away from gatherings of more than 2 people. That means you + 1 other person. Heck that is lower than the number of people in and average family of 2.5.

People who are stupid.....and there a lot of stupid people on this earth will look at the ten people rule and think as long as there are only ten of them that they are safe and can rub elbows as much as they want to. Thats what bothers me about that.

Quoted from PtownPin:

That would take like a year at least.

#2264 10 months ago

Ohio started their two week lockdown at midnight last night. On my way home from work this morning there were cars out the ass on the roads. So much for Ohio's lockdown I guess. Businesses are thumbing their noses at the governors lockdown looks like.

A serious suggestion for you - put me on ignore. You clearly are agitated by my posts - and miss their point entirely - so why read them?
I’ve picked up about 5 new ignores from this thread, rather than bicker with people. Give it a shot.

I just gotta know, has anyone ever confronted you in real life from all the shit that you talk online?

#2798 10 months ago
Quoted from roffels:

It's literally what some talking heads and politicians are proposing - it's better to die than let the economy collapse. He's poking fun at that rhetoric, because of course it's a ghoulish take.

#3384 10 months ago
Quoted from Zablon:

Are the recovered US numbers really only 616? I thought it was way higher than that...if not..that's scary...

It's way higher than that because many people have already had it and recovered and never reported being sick.

#3392 10 months ago
Quoted from Daditude:

https://pinside.com/pinball/help/pinsidecom-community-rules
"Discuss Politics and religion: Each to their own when it comes to these hot-button topics, but they have absolutely no place in the world of pinball. Please discuss them elsewhere."
I can tell you that we realize this subject is tied into politics somewhat, so it can be a bit difficult to divide the two for some. If you quote a political leader or share information that has come from a politician, we don't find it to necessarily be an issue. If you cast dispersions about political figures or parties, you will be moderated. We want information, not bickering. If you are not sure, you probably should not post it.

They should allow "one" thread where people can discuss politics. People who don't like discussing that could simply just not come in and participate in the discussion. Just my opinion.....

#3406 10 months ago
Quoted from vicjw66:

With all the people getting laid off, will they lose their employer healthcare?

If they're laid off permanently of course they will. No company has ever continued to give ex employees healthcare after they laid them off. Lol

#3409 10 months ago
Quoted from DaveH:

We can no longer discuss politics civilly. The division has been stoked so deeply that a thread that allowed it would just be a contest of who could get the other side to go away in frustration and anger. Pinside is not the place for it, as it would not end well.

I dont care personally because I dont talk politics much anyways but there really wouldnt be anything wrong with a thread where people could do so. If someone gets out of line and acts like a total ass you moderate them. If you dont like the thread topic then you just dont participate in the thread..its really very simple and not a big deal.

#3415 10 months ago

I heard NY is starting to look a little bit better? Hopefully that's true

#3416 10 months ago
Quoted from Daditude:

It was 85° here in Texas today. I am sure we will get our 100+ days of 100+ degree heat, just like EVERY summer. Hopefully we won't have as many cases. I really feel for those that live in the big apple, though.

That Texas heat will kill off the virus hopefully!

Quoted from arcademojo:

LOL, I said the same thing when looking at the picture. I've been wearing the mask for a couple days now. Was only one other person wearing one. Now there are 3 more today with masks. Dozens of customers wear them now too. Always masks me feel a little safer dealing with customers when they are wearing them. Can only imagine they feel the same way about workers wearing them.

Smart man! I would wear one in your position for sure if they are available.

#4345 9 months ago
Quoted from tiltmonster:

Aren't masks for people who are sick and not for people who are worried about getting sick? I thought the idea of masks was to keep your germs/illness/contagion from spreading to others.
From World Health Organization:
If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with suspected 2019-nCoV infection.
Wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing.
Masks are effective only when used in combination with frequent hand-cleaning with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
If you wear a mask, then you must know how to use it and dispose of it properly.
When I see people with mask I think they may be ill... idk?

Fck the WHO, any moron knows that you are safer wearing a mask. You would have to be a complete idiot to think otherwise!

It is one of the top watched shows on Netflix, maybe #1. It has TONS of buzz. It's a real train wreck, but you can't look away.

Holy crap, just finished Tiger King up and what a wild and crazy ass story that is. He is quite a character and so are many other people in the show. I just cant imagine having that kind of drama in my life. I don't want to give any spoilers so I'm just going to leave it at that. Definitely worth a watch though for sure.

#4504 9 months ago
Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

I said majority rule. Not the electoral college. Guess you missed that part?
And yes, I think 250 years after the constitution was written some changes are necessary. They’re called “amendments”, and we need one to abolish the electoral college. So that the majority of Americans hopes and dreams aren’t highjacked by a bunch of yahoos gaming the system.

Man I seriously cannot believe your unamerican way of thinking (and those of you that agree with him either) and your hate for this country. Oh yeah and how the hell have you not been banned from this thread yet? Every post you make is about politics. Funny how some people like yourself can say anything that they want and arent held accountable.

#4511 9 months ago
Quoted from Wickerman2:

Electoral college is widely regarded as out of date. Not a radical assertion or “unamerican” whatever the ef that means...

The electoral college is f*cking brilliant and it was put in place for a reason. Educate yourself and find out why. Our forefathers were literally f*cling brilliant people.

#4515 9 months ago
Quoted from cait001:

#4518 9 months ago

It's not going to get changed so may as well forget it. The people that dont like the election results need to stfu and get over it. I've never seen this kind of crying and acting like stupid little babies in my life. I hated the last guy that got voted in with a passion but I still stood behind him a d wanted him to do good for our country. He didnt but I never wanted him to be the failure that he was I promise you. I would have been an unamerican POS if I would have been that way.

Hes allowed to leave if he wants to. Theres not really much that he can say anyways that we dont already know is there?

Quoted from Reality_Studio:

Yup, I'm a Canadian. Long story short when I moved to the USA I had zero medical debt, zero school debt, zero debt period. The poor locals couldn't wrap their head around that concept as it seems like most Americans are drowning in some form of debt. Ironically even with all that debt, my schooling was better than theirs having done stuff like Calculus in high school. It made getting a job down here quite trivial.

Quoted from albummydavis:

This is the truth. Theres a guy I work with that has always been one to invade your personal space I guess you would say. I've told him and told him to keep his distance from me and to please get out of my face. I actually yelled at him today and told him to get the f out of my face. Hes so f'ing stupid though that I doubt that he will stop doing it. Such a f moron!

They tried it in Denver earlier in the week, lasted a few hours until things started to get out of hand. Lines running down the block outside of every store with people trying to buy before the closures. The more you try to restrict things, the more people will panic, and it will lead to acts of vandalism too. It is in the public's best interest to keep these stores open.

You can still buy it at a store surely though cant you? I think he just shut the bars and restaurants down for dine in.

Quoted from Ed209:

I’m 43, wife is 45, kids 11.
Day 1: Started with a small cough that I thought was just from the allergies that usually hit me this time a year. Left for work one morning feeling fine then around 3 started to get lightheaded and dizzy after having long conversations. Rushed home and within four hours was in bed with phenomena like symptoms. Lots of growing pressure in the lungs, trouble getting enough oxygen when I breathed, fever, dizzy. Next morning my body felt like it went through war, coughing up a storm and just felt really weak. Slowly improved that day. Lungs still had lots of pressure, coughing a shit load but nothing was losing up.
Day 2-5: Over the next few days the pressure in the lungs started to dissipate and I started to feel better but still would have waves of fatigue. One day it got so bad I had to lie down after pouring myself a bowl of cereal. The fatigue lasted would come and go in waves for 3 days and my cough started to shift from dry to wet. Finally whatever was in my lungs was starting to loosen up and I was starting to spit out clear phlegm.
Day 6-7: Worried I was starting to relapse a bit. Lungs felt like sandpaper and the fatigue was so bad I was couch locked for the majority of it. FaceTimed with The parents on one of those days so they could talk grandkid and it just exhausted me from just talking.
Day 8: Energy returned but my lungs felt destroyed. Hurt to take deep breaths and when I did breath deep there was an additional breath noise. Luckily that progressively improved over the last week and I’m almost back to 100%.
Wife also had the fatigue and fever but luckily no lung, just GI issue. Strangely I only had hot flashes, no sustained high fever, just small spikes that only lasted a few mins.
It was the weirdest sickness I’ve ever experienced. Usually I feel it in my sinuses with a cold or sick to my stomach with a flu. This just felt like something was attacking my lungs, everything else felt fine.

Glad you and your family are ok. Sounds like you were borderline needing to be hospitalized.

Quoted from jlm33:

About the persistence time of the coronavirus on various surfaces, very disparate / conflicting results have been reported.
This scientific article (link here: https://www.journalofhospitalinfection.com/article/S0195-6701(20)30046-3/fulltext) summarizes findings from different labs and compares decontamination protocols.
The consensus is that it lasts longer on glass, plastic and steel (several days). Your takeaway pizza in a cardboard box is only a bit safer... but if I were you, I would put it back in the oven for 30' at 170°F or more before eating it.
Abstract:
Currently, the emergence of a novel human coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, has become a global health concern causing severe respiratory tract infections in humans. Human-to-human transmissions have been described with incubation times between 2-10 days, facilitating its spread via droplets, contaminated hands or surfaces. We therefore reviewed the literature on all available information about the persistence of human and veterinary coronaviruses on inanimate surfaces as well as inactivation strategies with biocidal agents used for chemical disinfection, e.g. in healthcare facilities. The analysis of 22 studies reveals that human coronaviruses such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) coronavirus, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) coronavirus or endemic human coronaviruses (HCoV) can persist on inanimate surfaces like metal, glass or plastic for up to 9 days, but can be efficiently inactivated by surface disinfection procedures with 62–71% ethanol, 0.5% hydrogen peroxide or 0.1% sodium hypochlorite within 1 minute. Other biocidal agents such as 0.05–0.2% benzalkonium chloride or 0.02% chlorhexidine digluconate are less effective. As no specific therapies are available for SARS-CoV-2, early containment and prevention of further spread will be crucial to stop the ongoing outbreak and to control this novel infectious thread.

I believe that eating out is far more dangerous than the experts are letting on. I've ate fast food 2 or 3 times lately but I've also decided not to eat it many times and went ahead and fixed my own dinner at home. It sucks if you cant even go get a pizza without worrying about coronavirus germs on it.

Quoted from Tranquilize:

CBC just covered rise of Asian racism in the US and a severe spike in Asians buying guns. US government officials tried to have the virus named Wuhan Virus, which was flatly rejected by the international community.
They interviewed people buying guns for the first time. They each said that "leaders" are responsible for the hatred they are living with.
Support your fellow Americans and slap down racism, even if it feels subtle to you. On the other side, it's not subtle.

I think the real story is that people in this country now hate China's government, not Asian people that are living here in the U.S. or even the people that live in China.

I think China downplayed how bad this really was and how many actually died as well.

They lie about everything else so why should this be any different? They knew if they lied to us and said it wasnt that bad that we wouldnt prepare well enough for it and it would kill many more people. Now they are sitting back laughing at us.

#5192 9 months ago
Quoted from wrb1977:

Being this virus originated in China, they would have not seen this coming and had less time than the rest of the world to prepare but even more importantly less time to react. As contagious as this virus is, it would have spread like wildfire before they even knew what hit them. By the time they got their welders out the numbers would have already been higher than what they claim through this whole thing. It simply isn’t possible that their numbers are accurate.

There is so much more to this story than what we know and what we are being told. Soooooo much more.

#5195 9 months ago
Quoted from taylor34:

I don't understand why you guys even care about China's numbers. Right, wrong, who cares? Does it matter? What matters is how our own country handles it, wherever we may be living. It was clearly a very serious thing when it was happening in China, a bunch of countries (including the US) were very slow to react, while other countries like South Korea and Vietnam were on the ball from the start. We 'could' have shut down all flights and tracked down all people who had traveled to those areas and tested them aggressively but we didn't. This is the result of inaction.
To understand how locking things down can make such a difference, just look at our own country. Washington initially had way more cases than anyone else, was aggressive shutting things down, and has done a good job containing it. Washington is now 8th in cases. Based upon the logic you guys are spouting above, there's no way that should have been possible, but it was through being very proactive when they spotted the problem.
Other countries have their own issues, but in the US it's being caused by:
states all taking different approaches
no central approach from the states as a group
free travel to anywhere across the US still
lack of testing
and frankly huge grocery stores, nobody should be allowed in a big store anymore. Delivery to your house or to a car in the lot only. Protect people and employees when getting necessities.

It matters because the information that we could get out of them could really help us fight this and save some lives. Being truthful with us is the least they could do since they are the reason we are in this mess right now.

I really don’t quite understand WTF you are talking about or so upset about. What responsibilities could i possibly have for thinking this would not turn into the shit show that it has? Im pretty sure that about 90% of the population didn’t think that this would happen. You are acting like I’m the surgeon general or something and i told everyone in America that nothing was going to happen. Give it a rest dude.

Quoted from Tranquilize:

Ugh... reading comprehension.. again! Where did I say I have a heart problem? Never had a single issue in my life.
For you and your crew of deniers: Far, far, far less than 90% of the population thought this was "fake news." It's only the Fox crew that thought that. Most of the first world was amazed at the response. You supported this response.
You said you were wrong, and that's great. I commend you for it. But you also said you didn't care that you were wrong, a point you notedly left out in your reply. I simply responded by stating that you should care, and, sorry, I'm right. You should care. You should reconsider trusting Fox. That's it. But your blinders are on yet again. So run blind. Run free. I won't run with you though because, as we all know, my heart is such a concern.

You have mentioned that you are in pretty bad health many times and i thought you said that it was your heart. I could have swore that you said that you have had heart surgeries? My thoughts on this virus were not from watching fox news, they were MY own thoughts. I don't sit around and watch the news all day But when i do Fox news is my choice. Shoot me i guess for not liking Don Lemon on CNN or Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.

My bubble hockey is like a foosball table. You have to twist the handles to make the players smack the puck around. Maybe you could play NHL 20 on the playstation though?

#6708 9 months ago
Quoted from Pinball_Gizzard:

Just because they were all singing doesn't necessarily mean the virus was transmitted airborne. Respiratory droplets can be created when coughing or clearing the throat. In addition, singing itself is a very different activity vs talking. There is much more air being forced from the lungs so you could consider the possibility that a higher amount of virus was placed into the air. There are cases of physicians contracting coronavirus from intubating a patient or doing a bronchoscopy where large amounts of virus is put into the air. Similar situation.
Also a choir is in very close proximity to each other and likely are touching each other or common surfaces intermittently which is another possible mode of transmission.

I have a question. I know your not suppose to touch your face BUT, let's just assume that your cheek or chin or forehead is itching, is it safe to scratch your face like that occasionally? I understand you shouldnt touch your mouth, rub your eyes, or pick your nose but would you get coronavirus by scratching your cheek or forehead if it was itching?
