Nearly every store that sells physical products is technically classified as "essential". Which is why they are all still open.
They're essential to themselves. But GameStop is not essential. Neither is booze unless you're an alcoholic (i.e. sudden withdrawal can kill you). Of course actual alcoholics bought cases of booze instead of TP once the panic set in.

Okay, that's waaaaay too specific.

I know you're joking but I learned this in the last weeks of our foster daughter's life. She became incontinent when the cancer spread. Feces, urine, vomit, and blood can all be removed and sanitized with the correct washing technique.

Free and at home... Who would have thought

Well it has the solid shooting mechanics of a COD game, ability to get teammates back into the game if they die (or yourself if ya go to the gulag), and you can really customize your character and use your gear from the MP. Overall it's pretty enjoyable.
And it's free!

Was just reading an article in the NYT where one doctor suggested the best-case scenario for the US was 1.1 miliion dead. Which seems a bit grim. Only time will tell if he is an alarmist or is being conservative. My personal guess would be 10s of thousands at a minimum, simply based on the number of deaths of normal flu, and this being by most indications a worse situation. I have no guesses for a worst-case scenario...
That seems exponentially higher than what we currently "know" about what is going on. If China is claiming to be on the downturn, and they are at under 4k (which I don't believe and probably closer to 20k), we should expect to have thousands less deaths.

Italy is also at 4k deaths, with a population 23 times smaller than China's (and ~5 times smaller than the US), and it's still on the upswing. There's much made about how Italy has a relatively older population, but it's a difference of 2-6% in any age bracket compared to other countries, not an order of magnitude.

I wonder if that has to do with Italy's culture. They tend to be really family oriented, very social. Love to gather together. Which in many ways mirrors other societies like the United States, which has seen COVID-19 cases go from ~1,000 to ~14,000+ in a week.
Kiss on both cheeks, etc.

Toilet paper makes no sense either..

I mean they aren't going to shut off the water or electricity..

You can jump in the shower if you run out. Or use a sock and throw it in the washer.

Yeah, but then you have to tell people that you went running in the rain and mud when they asked where all the stains came from. Puke

Not if you use the correct detergent and bleach. No stains and completely sanitized.

Okay, that's waaaaay too specific.

Agree with to many systems. I didn't want a God of War version of Doom. I miss the chaotic flow and weapon based stuff in 2016. To many things to remember and very limited ammo. Doom 2016 was a power fantasy. Doom Eternal is stressful! Will have to play more to see if that stress is rewarded. The story is a bit of a yawn so far to.

You gain ammo by killing with the chainsaw.
Just like real life.

This game reminds me of my highschool days. I knew a girl named Mabel, and she gave me wood.

No seriously, her father supplied us with firewood for our wood stove. What did you think I meant?

News Comments > Get Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and Tomb Raider for Free

1. Re: Get Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and Tomb Raider for Free Mar 20, 2020, 15:22  jdreyer 
 
A few things here.

Tomb Raider is a fun game, if a bit console-y with some QTEs. Gorgeous graphics.

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is 3 quarters perspective action puzzler. I haven't played this, but I own Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Both these games support local coop, so hook your PC up to the TV, and have at it with your SO or your kids. Playing Guardian of the Light with others was a lot of fun, so I'm looking forward to playing this with the kids while we shelter in place.

Also, Guardian of the Light is on sale right now for $1.49. Pick it up!

Meanwhile, in Italy

"In a measure of how the fortunes of East and West have shifted, a Chinese Red Cross official heading an aid delegation to Milan castigated Italians for failing to take their national lockdown seriously.

Sun Shuopeng said he was shocked to see so many people walking around, using public transportation and eating out in hotels."

See any similarities ?

Also, consider that China is an unique case.

Save North Korea, the truly harsh and unrelenting measures enforcing the quarantines in their regime that gave so good results, are unapplicable in the the rest of the world.

And few countries if any have evidenced the massive social focus and prompt early measures of South Korea.

So it follows the rest of the world should fare worse.
The question is how much.

For example USA has repeatedly shown that sizeable parts of the poblation tends to not give a f**k over social consequences.

Our family has been holed up all week. I went out to do some shopping.today, and was shocked to see the park full of people playing pickle ball, basketball, etc. The basketball was especially shocking given how the pros cancelled their season and how these players were all over each other. Even with the dire warnings, Americans think they're invincible.

Researchers calculated a 1.4 percent likelihood of dying in the city where the pandemic began. Earlier estimates ranged from 2 percent to 3.4 percent.

And that's still going down.

Fuck did I say earlier?

Coronavirus Is Hiding in Plain Sight

For every known case of coronavirus, another five to 10 cases are out there undetected, a new study suggests.

Scientists tracking the spread of the coronavirus reported on Monday that, for every confirmed case, there are most likely another five to 10 people in the community with undetected infections. These often-milder cases are, on average, about half as infectious as confirmed ones, but are responsible for nearly 80 percent of new cases, according to the report, which was based on data from China.

Dude. No one is saying this is fucking Ebola. What we're saying is that it's highly virulent and 10x more deadly (1% mortality) than the flu. In 2018, 45M Americans had the flu. The same infection rate for COVID19 results in 450K dead and about 500K with serious, long-term effects requiring an ICU. That's nearly one million people, about the same number of hospital beds the USA has for *all illnesses.* If we let this thing roam unchecked, the healthcare system would be completely overrun. With no beds available, people would be dying of otherwise preventable injuries not related to COVID19, including the regular flu which doesn't go on vacation just because COVID19 is in town. Governments and businesses are doing the right thing by shutting this down.

On the other hand, if we let it run its course and it kills 20% of the olds and 10% of the poors, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid would be solvent again.

It's not "essential retail." It's "surprise mechanics," when someone dies after being infected in the store.

Okay, I got a good chuckle out of that.

I wonder what price Epic ends up paying Ubisoft per copy of Watch_Dogs they give away? It can't possibly be the whole $29.99 they want you to think it's worth, that game is on sale for peanuts all the time.

Yeah, game is six years old, and sales are a trickle if anything. Probably was pretty cheap.

I prefer this one.

When RedEye says "Another one" he means in addition to the Johns Hopkins one.

I like this one, it shows how many tested in each US state.
