Both. I'm not worried about the virus. I did stock up because I'm worried about people panicking.

So let's impeach Trump and make Pence President! Progressives are so weirdly short-sighted.

Precisely this. Read about the 1917 flu. The biggest impact in most areas wasn't the case fatality rate, but the breakdown in services when everyone got sick at the same time.

I've known a few people who were absolutely unable to cook, because regardless of following a recipe, they would always start a fire. Even on an electric range.

Judging by historical data, 4 weeks would be more prudent.

My cat gave me a full-throated meow to wake me up this morning. She's a Manx. A mute breed. She has never meowed before. It's the apocalypse today...

Uh...yeah, if you're a first-responder or medical professional, using a respirator. But if you're one of those people, then you would already know that. If you're a regular schmoe, this doesn't apply.

Get that from plenty of non-Trumpists, too. "Jesus, these are my choices?" Can't say I disagree...as I've said before, none of these people represent me.

Where's the research? I want the epidemiology, not second-hand statements. I've suspected this for a while, but haven't managed to track down any hard science backing it.

I get that logic - if I lost the ability to do what I loved, what made me who I am, I'd probably make the same choice he did. But he's also the only "famous death" that's every truly hurt me, even five years later.

Islam never had such a Reformation, so it's still strongly political in comparison. Again, just to play devil's advocate, in saying there's a historical basis for the claim. But mostly, the claim is nonsense.

To play devil's advocate, historically nearly all religion has been political to a large degree. It was Protestantism that started the break between secular and religious belief in the Western world.

I was asked to do a video call last week, and I realized that don't even have any cameras on my computers. I felt like such a luddite.

Not when those public servants actively work against the policies of the elected federal government.

When doing my self-evaluation, I always fill it with nonsense accomplishments like "Successfully divided by zero" or "Self-identified as a curling iron." I'm a bad employee, clearly.

I like how that tweet reads as though the asteroid is named "."
