Why on earth would you think that?

Bone Spurs says so.  He’s a super genius.  If it doesn’t vanish in a puff of smoke, then it’s the guy from Kenya fault.

just a bit of info

please double check this

i only pass on what i believe is reliable

 

 

pandemics take about 3 months to cycle

expect 12 weeks of disruption

stock up a bit

during the peak you will not want to go out

Good idea.  Having 2 cases of scotch delivered this afternoon.  That should cover a couple weeks! :towel:

that is an expensive hand disinfectant

but maybe purell and other hand products are already completely sold out where you are located

 

did you know

basic dish soap is an ok replacement for handwash products

 

i just got back buying a couple frozen pizzas, some tp (i actually needed some), some breakfast cereals

i'm good for 3 weeks i think

might have to pick up milk, fresh produce/fruit in a week or so

but i'm going to try to limit these outings to a bare minimum

and will do my shopping when the store opens at 6 am and no one else is up shopping yet

 

regret having to curtail the odd eating outs that i do enjoy

Back to reality for a second here people,  after this current situation passes - and it will pass one way or another - reflection is going to allow us to appreciate what we really value in our lives and what our priorities really should be.  No game on, how about spending time with family/friends?   This is coming from an admitted sports addict so no, I'm not just a 'casual' fan that can simply walk away from my sports and move onto something else to occupy myself with little to no change in my life - but we as fans have to accept that there's zero control here, zero.

Spend time with family!  :lol:  My in-laws all retired out here, and are from Toronto :sick: and Calgary :sick:.

If you recall, after 9/11, when the NYSE re-opened there was panic selling and the market had its biggest single-day losses in history (at the time).  However, it didn't take too long for the markets to turn back around and they went on the biggest bull run in history.

 

A market crash like this presents an opportunity.  There will be bargains to be had and the market will start to climb back up again.  Apparently they are already back up 5% this morning.

 

In the words of Douglas Adams, Don't Panic.

Stop trying to make sense on here!  Don’t panic...that’s what the media wants us to do. Immediately strip to your underpants, wrap yourself in protective tp and run around in the back yard. Drink all the scotch, yes all of it. For the good of the nation!

Sorry.  I'm very tired.  I don't know what I was thinking.

Apparently in Toronto McMaster they figured out what makes up the Virus and in Saskatchewan they have a vaccine ready to test on animals. Amazing what we can do when hockey is cancelled.

As an alternative to Lysol wipes (in case they're sold out due to hoarders), I wonder if baby wipes would be any good?  They're not that expensive.

You're only down $60,000? That's great news.  I am afraid to look.
