From a recent online article’s comments…
Last of the Middle Class~ “I’d wager door handles as more infected than anything else. Never, EVER touch a door handle, push plate, and most importantly your face.“
Aussiekiwi~ “Everybody pushes the plate……because they think the door handle is infected, I jump up as high as I can and try to tip the door open near the top, sometimes I’m standing there jumping up and down for 5 minutes trying to get out“.
And now we get to watch humanities response. From outright wackadoodle (read some comments) to scary controlling (our favourite governments).
“This is a globalist plot to take control”. WTF?! I can still laff at this, not so much our Govt’s response to this crisis. I’m afraid here in North America and the rest of the world we are already looking lame. Still taking flights. Still wait and seeing.
And the WHO congratulating China on its response? Seriously. Horseshit! China is yet to come clean and the WHO abrogated its responsibility. Why. Its always about the Money, the Economy. The knowledge of this outbreak goes back to late December.
I’ve got news for you. If I, a mere crank straddling a snow bank in butt-hole no-where, caught wind of this more than 2 weeks ago, followed it as it got worse, was able to be on top of this, where the hell was our government(s)?
Now we watch as they scramble. It will be awkward at best, draconian at worst. A gentle reminder dear Readers (you 3) to stay on top of this. Secure masks and glasses. Gather some stores of medicines you need. Prepare a larder (at least 2 weeks) for stay at home stuff. Generally prepare for it to get worse. (and hope it doesn’t)
Right now, since we’ve shown up late to the party that means Code Yellow: exhibit secure hygiene practises, watch to see indicators we are trending to Code Red. (map).
The critical info point now is its fatality rate. Right now our Govt is saying in the 2-3% range. But that’s based on Chinese data (seriously?). All sorts of stuff coming out on Twatter and other sources saying not so. Could be as high as 10%. This needs to be established. Look for lots of absolute bullshit coming out on this.
And don’t be holding out for a miracle vaccine. Forces in power will attempt to fast track a vaccine, shorten the testing cycle and have us take it. I’ll wait and see. Cause ya know, there’s money in vaccines.
Be prepared to read/see and hear some incredible things. About 10% that might be real.
I will qualify myself yet again. Do not beleive what I say. Consider it guidance down my rabbit hole. Prove it out for yourself, your circumstances. My job here is to offer some guidance. Your job is to figure out if it has value.
I do not hold out much hope for a sane upcoming few months. And if gets worse by establishing itself in other countries as it has in China, some actual hardship.
Remember, this is merely a prelude to Giant Turd Balls rolling down your street. A pandemic isn’t a Turd Ball, rather falls into the same category as a massive EMP strike, Yellowstone going up, Leafs winning the cup. One offs that may or not happen sometime in the future. Good things to pontificate about but not really worthy of attention. Except pandemics have been under discussion since, SARS, MERS and Ebola. We are not ready.
What else aren’t we ready for? Financial Chaos, Social Unrest, dare I say Peak Oil?

Wrap it up….please
As always, should you find anything that refutes the general idea of a horrific collapse of the civilization we know, that this is all a bad dream, and/or it’s me who is nuts (rather than the entire planets’ population less myself and 3 part-time readers), I’m open to a funner outlook.
