  1. Ironically (and something I am VERY thankful for), the virus hasn't affected me much at all. I got laid off for two weeks, but then the machine shop I work for started getting various customers that have been deemed essential calling up for work to continue, so I've since been working full-time. The Boss (owner) said that certain things will slow down much more in the summer, so we will see. They require us to maintain a six foot minimum distance and provide masks if we have to get closer, and also alcohol-based spray to spray down one's work area.
  2. Yeah, personally I think the initial outbreak probably wasn't intentional, but when Xi saw what it was going to do to China, he gave the order to make sure it infected everywhere else. The problem with it being purposeful is that it would only be a short-term benefit, because longer-term, it stands to hurt China, as now countries, especially the United States, see the danger of having various supply chains dependent on China, and also it has been shown to the world how China lies and obfuscates. A lot of the equipment China has sent to European countries, at least from what I've read, has been
  3. A lot of diseases it seems come out of the Asian countries for some reason. So probably due to a lack of sanitation in the markets with the huge crowds of people and then whatever natural cause produces such viruses in the first place.
  4. Found a TV show on Netflix called "Fastest Car," basically in each episode, three home-built cars drag race a supercar, then at the end of the season (there are two thus far), the winners of each of the prior episodes all race one another. It is interesting though because you get to see a lot of owners of exotics and of course discover the classic "What do they do" question, but it can be motivational. Quite a few self-made female exotic owners too. The one is an attractive blond who "looks" like a woman that doesn't know anything and just bought a fancy car but she actually owns a premier car
  5. I remain hopeful that the economy will be able to make a quick turnaround. But we'll have to see. At some point, they are going to have to start letting certain businesses operate again, and hope that the virus has died down enough by then that it doesn't re-rear itself, because there is only so long you can keep the economy shut down. One thing I have been reading which people should keep in mind is that, just as many didn't take the idea of a pandemic seriously early on and then panicked, now many are making the assumption that things won't get much worse. But people should continue wi
  6. One thing I wonder, all this talk among preppers about keeping gold and silver for the End of the World, maybe one should stock toilet paper for currency
  7. :::WARNING::: Wordy Wheels posting and partial rant I am terrified because my mom recovered from Stage 3 breast cancer and had a bunch of lymph nodes removed, so her immune system is compromised. Just getting a regular flu shot knocked her out for a couple of days, and she is 72. Nobody knows for sure whether half the population is over or under-reacting and nobody knows for sure what the hell is going on is my take on it. I think the next three weeks will lay it bare. Three weeks ago, Italy had three confirmed cases. Now, it's a public health emergency there stretching their health
  8. I'm curious as to how people go about investing; does anyone do value investing? I've read things saying it doesn't work anymore, but then other articles saying that often seems the case during periods of low interest rates and bull markets, but that one has to consider the long-term, also that one can do it in combination with growth investing. Right now value investing seems to be getting hammered while growth investing is all the rage due to the bull market. I'm just curious about people's thoughts on it.
  9. So I have noticed that the "Start a New Topic" button is missing from the Business forum, is there a reason for this? There were some topics I was thinking of posting about.
  10. Just curious, but who was Kris Singh and what happened there (unless that is too touchy a subject to discuss)?
  11. I like that they made it a mid-engine design, but the aesthetic design of it is rather "meh" to me. It just looks like a Ferrari now. It doesn't have a unique "Corvette"-appearance to it, but rather now is just another one of the various high-end sports cars where unless you really know them, you need to get up close to see what car it really is.
