    i just found this to be an interesting read and a bit less scary than the dooms day medias version, not that i'm down playing it though. Elizabeth Schneider

    Thanks OP!

    I just don't get all this Wuhan Panic. As of this morning just under 4800 people have died worldwide. Of that 4800 87% of those that died were over 60 and/or had other chronic ailments. 150,000 people die every day and more than 60k die every year for just normal everyday flu that doesn't get a name. I get taking precautions that we should be taking every flu season but the areas worst affected so far are already seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. At the end of last week over 5 trillion dollars disappeared in global markets. I am not sure how much that has gone up this week but it has to be close to double.
    I suspect that when the media frenzy and both political parties are done playing and trying to figure out how best to use this for their own gain; that many more folks are going to be much more negatively affected by what this does to them financially ( retirement plans or investments) than the Wuhan Panic does to them health wise. Assuming you don't have chronic ailments and the flu isn't the straw that breaks the Camel's back.

    I think that may be the first time I have ever used Camel in a sentence without the toe attached.

    I really didn't get a chuckle out of it. I'm not freaking out over it but am taking it seriously and following the common sense advice like in MG's video above. And I hope others around me will too. I'm thinking one way or another its going to effect everyone.

    I'm suggesting people use both sires to reduce waste.......Might need more hand sanitizer, though.

    The stock market has zero bearing on the real world, if we all had this kind help when we screwed up we would all be billionaires. The fact our government couldn't give a crap about the people down in the streets but they love giving free money to the 1%. Any excuse to do is a blessing for them. Your tax dollars hard at work, no benefits for you but you get to pay for it. Socialism alive and well in the US corporate world where nothing is allowed to fail anymore.

    Yep, and younger folks are taking advantage of the cheap flights/travel packages too. Two weeks ago my wife booked a flight to Raleigh to see a friend in May. Now that same flight is a third of the price!

    So far I have somehow managed to survive Bird Flu, Swine Flu, regular flu, Ebola, Global Warming, the Trump presidency, riding a bicycle without a helmet, and using incorrect gender pronouns. At this point I'm considering every minute I may have remaining to me a bonus.
