I'm not super worried about getting sick myself, but I've had one family member die from the flu at 50. I'm also aware that it could have a significant impact on our small company since we've already lost ~80 man hours to the flu...with employees that are vaccinated. Another 80 hours could be a massive hit.


My uncle died from the flu. He didn't have health insurance, so he stayed home and tried to tough it out. Obamacare was slated to start the next month, and he would have been able to visit the doctor without paying hundreds of dollars.

Health Care Suits, their (Trump vetted) message today:

* Don't buy masks they don't work
* If you don't buy them, then we can still buy them without shortages
* We need them as they magically only work for us
* Health Care lives are more important than yours

I didn't buy any masks, but I did stock up on one hundred hazmat suits.

But the biggest issue, unsurprisingly, is that this will kill 15% of people over 80. You guys seem to think that's cool. Others of us feel like we need to be prepared to find ways to bring that number down.

I mean, what do the elderly do for us, really?

I have my popcorn, emergency rations and hand-wash ready <3

You should probably grab at least a N95 respirator too...

I have a FFP3 respirator, and you do not want to wear that, sits so tight that you can barely breath. Also doesn't actually protect you, you need goggles too

I have reading glasses. That should be good enough, right?

I think the level of fear that this has generated is not proportional to the actual threat. It just seems everyone is grossly overreacting. I shudder to think of the mass hysteria that would occur if a virus that was actually a real global, high-lethality viral threat were to come along.

Cue the inevitable "Prez wants old people to die!" comments.

You just want to see the world burn, doncha.

As long as you had a PC and your dogs, no prob.

Given this guy's somewhat broken English, I assume he isn't American.
That was my expectation from the "Just get a new education and look for a job in a different field"-part. I'd say $300k would be low end for the expenses of doing that as an American, and that would only be the cost if you could cover it without taking any loans.

If any kind of loan is involved, the actual cost would likely approach minimum $500k (over the time it takes to pay it back). Which would be on top of the student loan already being paid off.

I recently changed professions trim Cold Call Sales Specialist to Nuclear Physicist. All it took was an online degree from University of Phoenix costing $49.99.

It's two-fold for the developers:
2) Piracy. Yup, piracy. The fear is that Cutter and I could each have an account. Two new games come out, and he buys one and I buy the other. Two weeks later, we've both finished our games, and rather than buy the other game, we just trade passwords. Now I have access to his game, and he mine. Or, perhaps, we just have a joint account we both use, similar to Netflix sharing, and we pop our games up and play whatever we want....

That's not piracy. Someone accessing your account other than you might be against a EULA, but those aren't legally binding and often very anticonsumer, and even have illegal terms in some countries.

But in any case, it's not any more illegal than lending your friend your copy of a PS4 game.
Also no different than swapping Steam accounts for local clients.

Priceless and timely article on this subject: America is about to get a godawful lesson in why health care should never be a for-profit business

Wow, a perfect hurricane on the horizon ... shocking read, thanks so much


"By treating health care like a business, Americans have already seen one of the first people who dared ask to be tested for COVID-19 get handed a bill for thousands of dollars, the primary result of which will be to dissuade other Americans from asking to be tested. Which is, right there, exactly the result that is best for insurance companies—and worst for the nation."

Problem, America?

Can't afford the vaccine? You should have pulled yourself up by your bootstraps. How hard is it to make six figures?

Anyone who can't afford a vaccine will be quarantined. In Canada.

Also, DKos is the original Orange Satan, as labeled by conservatives.

So for shits I took one of the more funny Twitter comments and contacted Hinterlands if I had their permission to uninstall The Long Dark from my old computer and install it on my new computer. This was their response...

Hi Mike,

Thanks for reaching out to us. If you own this game on the Steam platform you should have full autonomy to install The Long Dark wherever you choose. Having the application installed on multiple devices at one time should be fine, as Steam will gate multiple copies from running at the same time. Please feel free to drop us a line again any time!

Best wishes,
Hinterland Support
You should say, then it's fine if I install it on my cloud client hosted by Nvidia.

"though another odd choice for me amid virus fears."

I had a 10K yesterday, and contemplated not going even though officially we have no cases in my state. I went and just gave myself some rules:
- get out in front
- don't accept any cups of water (although the aid station volunteers all wore latex gloves) or unpackaged food.
No one at the race was wearing masks.

From what I've read and heard over the years, the cheap earloop masks are much more effective at preventing a sick person from spreading it than a healthy person from contracting it.
