    Absolutely. Heroes, all of them, and all healthcare workers right now. I have ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE why there is so much fawning over what Trump isn't doing or saying. Who tf cares? The dude's a moron. There are scores and scores of true heroes in action at this moment, and real legit scientists backing them up and doing work. They should be the only ones on tv, in the news, making statements, etc. at the moment.

    Stay safe man. We all appreciate you. My wife and I know some people who are in the front lines as well.

    As mentioned before, my son was tested this morning. He's 2. He's got some wheezing bilaterally and his cough sounds worse tonight.

    I wouldn't be worried, other than our county just reported it's third case today, and it's a community spread case.

    My wife and son and I all have had a pesky head cold for a week and a half and now I'm starting to worry about the whole deal...

    To make you feel better, just consider panic attacks a formality.

    UNC Chapel Hill researchers predicted coronavirus pandemic back in 2015, and predicted no treatment.

    Interestingly, it looks like Professor Baric also manipulated the virus using "reverse genetics".
    Quoting that article:
    "Here we examine the disease potential of a SARS-like virus, SHC014-CoV, which is currently circulating in Chinese horseshoe bat populations1. Using the SARS-CoV reverse genetics system2, we generated and characterized a chimeric virus expressing the spike of bat coronavirus SHC014 in a mouse-adapted SARS-CoV backbone."

    Keep up the good fight. Even though you were wrong about Westbrook I still appreciate everything you’re doing to help the country. Go Wildcats! (Is that what we were, or was it the bobcats? I forget.)

    I am pretty sure that is a 40 year old guy trolling the beach for easy coed pickings.

    Microcenter was only letting 40 people in the store at a time, so there was a line around the corner with people waiting to get in. I didn't mind the wait. Store felt more roomy and less crowded.

    I went in with some Lysol wipes and q-tips, but people were still testing out the display keyboards and display headsets, running their hands all over them!

    Most people there were looking to pick up devices to work from home. Some in line said the wait for Amazon delivery was too long, with Prime orders up to 4 days. Some guy said he is anticipating Trump's $1k, so he was going to build a PC.

    I needed a motherboard/processor combo since my old PC crapped out on me after 10 yrs. See what this Ryzen stuff is all about.
