  1. The really bad news from Italy is the testing they did for every person in a town of 3000 had 25-50% of the positive cases were asymptomatic. Now of course grain of salt and small sample size. If that is anywhere close to the case where many who get this don’t know, it could get very, very ugly fast.
  2. Crisis reveals character, the good, the bad and the ugly.
  3. The person who I responded to was asking about non perishable foods. I put spinach in everything.
  4. Good point, though that is much more fatty, so depending on what your priorities are in food eating it may not be an option for some. That said, I’m going to try that, because it sounds delicious and during this health emergency I’m in don’t give a f mode when it comes to my eating. Never thought of doing that so thanks!
  5. While I hate Tim Hortons myself and never go there it’s important to note that they (like McDonalds and some other fast food places) have franchisee owners for each restaurant under the umbrella Tim Horton’s franchise. So these are individual store decisions, not franchise wide. Anyone choosing to do this are dirtbags.
  6. Not sure if this is a new feature, but Skip The Dishes now has a “contactless delivery” option. Smart of them in any case.
  7. Oil price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia for market share (also hurts US shale producers) by flooding the market when demand is dropping daily means cheaper gas for us. Might even go lower.
  8. For those who may be struggling with food costs my go to cheap and filling, but not that great for you meal in a pinch is Kraft Dinner (or generic pasta brand) with a can or two of tuna (depending how many boxes of pasta you make, suit to taste). Adds protein and not as expensive as other meats. $1.50-$2.00 a can of tuna, $1.50-$2.00 package of pasta and you’ve got yourself a meal.
  9. I agree with your overall sentiment about people buying things they don’t need, but I think we should consider the possibility that at least some of these packages are for multiple different people/families? I mean not everyone has the ability to just rush out and grab a basic necessity or capability to wait in a line for hours. Remember this hits seniors, the most vulnerable hardest. How many are buying for their parents/grandparents/families? While I’m sure some are panic buying for no reason I don’t like this attitude towards multiple package tp buyers as idiots without full knowledge of the reasoning behind said purchases.
  10. Denmark had a big jump in cases, up 353 yesterday bringing their total to 615. That’s probably why they announced these measures. Honestly I think every country should be looking at doing this.
  11. In the upper decks, yes, but not the lower ones (unless that’s changed since I last rode on one, in which case, disregard). So if you have the virus and are directed to the bottom level then you’re bringing it to all passenger decks. Whereas if you’re directed to the upper level then at least it’s only in your vehicle and everyone can isolate once arriving at their destination. I don’t like that being up to chance, allow all passengers to stay in vehicles at all levels temporarily. Sure there’ll be people who disregard the dangers and will go up anyways, but limiting those to the idiots rather then absolutely forcing anyone who potentially has it into crowded passenger levels is vital to slow the spread as much as possible. This could also have the bonus effect of helping those with underlying medical problems avoid getting infected by allowing vulnerable people to stay away from passenger levels (high areas of transmission) to your own vehicle (which is likely cleaner and less infected then anywhere else on the boat).
  12. This seems like an outbreak waiting to happen on one of these sailings. https://globalnews.ca/news/6672650/coronavirus-bc-ferries-passengers-in-cars/ Coronavirus: BC Ferries says passengers still can’t stay in cars on closed decks
  13. I’ve had a persistent cough the last little bit and my mom is a diabetic senior so I’m self isolating and having groceries delivered. I’m not going to be the idiot who thinks he’s fine and goes on potentially infecting others by continuing to live life as usual like nothing has changed. I’m young and will be fine, but with some positive tests coming from people who show no symptoms I’m not taking any chances given the first case being found in my city.
  14. Posted this in the other thread too. So the latest research shows it can survive 3 hours in the air and 3 days on surfaces. Earlier information saying person to person contact spreading only looks to be false. https://time.com/5801278/coronavirus-stays-on-surfaces-days-tests/ If this follows the trajectory of Italy (2,000 new cases daily), Europe (France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Netherlands, Sweden, Austria 100+ new cases daily) and the US (100’s new cases daily) then here’s what will happen here. First it’s only a few cases (Jan. 28 1st case in BC), then dozens (Mar. 7 27 cases), then hundreds (there is 53 cases as of Mar. 12 and we will hit 100 in the next week or so), then thousands. As infection rates increase so do the deaths from those who are most vulnerable: the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions. First it’s 1 death, then dozens then hundreds then thousands. No country has reached that point yet (Italy will cross 1,000 dead tomorrow), but that’s the trajectory that most are on. We’re just a couple weeks behind everyone else. Of course this could play out very differently here and I pray that this scenario does not come to fruition, but it’s wise imo for us to look at previous countries experiences with the virus given that this is something we know very little about.

  16. It was their first win against Montreal in their building since December 9th, 2011.
  17. Mods, need a Marky/Demko option to use on posts (don’t want to start another goalie controversy by only picking one, you know how easy those start). If we have one for Petey, Hughes, Sedin and Burr we should have our netminder stars too!
  18. You’re not supposed to drink 50 shots before trying to pick up a woman. I think that’s your problem right there
  19. The never ending Canucks injury curse continues to rack up the body count in quick succession suddenly. Bailey’s got wheels, but I’d much rather MacEwen.
  20. Giant grain of salt as “analytics”, but fwiw during the Bruins game it was found that Markstrom has stolen 8 games with his saves on shots that would be goals if he didn’t stop them. 16 points were gained from him being in net. Tukka Rask another Vezina candidate with similar stats to Marky has stolen 1 game this year. He is the reason we are in the hunt for the post season right now if these stats are to be believed. He is our rock, our MVP and it will be a big loss to not have him for crunch time on making the playoffs. That all said Demko is a great goalie too and one player’s injury is another’s opportunity. I hope he takes the mantle and runs with it. If we didn’t have Demko then I would be more panicked by this terrible news. Relying on the unknown Domingue would be a huge risk. As it sits though despite the big loss we are positioned about as best as you possibly can be when your #1 guy goes down to injury. Let’s see what happens.
  21. Here’s a fun stat. It’s kind of crazy to see us only having outright lost 36% of the games we’ve played this year. Such an improved team across the board from last season. We’ve earned at least a point 64% of the time. Playoffs are coming to Vancouver again barring any unexpected setbacks.
  22. And by all accounts Pearson seems to love it here with the Canucks and living in Vancouver, so he could sell Toffoli on staying. Kind of like an ace up our sleeve considering their close relationship. A player deciding whether to stay on or leave a NHL team is not always going to base their decision on dollars. Every player is different and has varying priorities for what matters most to them. We tend to forget as fans that these players are all human beings and have more to consider then just how much they are paid.
  23. And just like with the Miller trade you along with most of CDC will be surprised again when Toffoli ends up “over-achieving” what his points/play level was like prior and does really well here. People will be more shocked after Toffoli re-signs with us. I’ve seen enough Jim Benning trades to know even if I feel iffy on it at the time he knows what he’s doing more then me and things will likely either a) workout great for us or b) not cost us anything after a wrong move. Wait and see what he does here, you’ll be happy.
  24. I may not be a doctor, but to me if it’s a rib area fracture that sounds more like month to month considering the time needed to reheal and then slowly introducing physical contact to the body after to get used to NHL play again. It seems like if we see him it’ll be in April at the earliest.
