  1. Honestly, I’d pay full price for SM 64 and Sunshine remakes if done in Odyssey engine and if Sunshine camera issues were fixed. I’m good with 1080p upscale for Galaxy games.
  2. 8 I thoroughly enjoyed it. It lived up to the hype for me.
  3. Yep, I just learned about the breathing part when I posted about the masks. I had seen the 27ft figure before.
  4. Edit: This is now out of stock. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Brawny-Tear-A-Square-Paper-Towels-6-Double-Rolls/540094690
  5. I thought the 6 feet rule was because of the coughing or sneezing. You’re right about the masks because the virus is smaller than what it will filter. However, it’s better than nothing.
  6. Man, this says that it can potentially be transmitted from just breathing or talking. I’ll be wearing a mask on my next grocery visit if I can. https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/02/health/aerosol-coronavirus-spread-white-house-letter/index.html
  7. Well, my physical copy has been delayed until the 16th according to Target.
  8. This is the Pastor of our school. He has been posting YouTube videos during the stay in place order. He was friends with Chris Farley and Chris’s character for living in a van down by the River is named after him. You can see see where Chris got some of the inspiration from.
  9. I went back and read your early posts. You were on the money of this virus pretty early.
  10. That is what they have been saying. However, the CDC is considering recommending masks for the public to reduce the spread. Masks in Asia have helped reduce the spread of the flu. My guess is that it would reduce the larger airborne particles from the contagious. The virus itself is smaller than what an N95 mask can filter, but it would be better than nothing as long as people were still cautious and didn’t “play” with the mask. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2020/03/31/health/cdc-masks-coronavirus.amp.html @Startyde I have not trusted the experts on lots of things they have been downplaying. I had to travel on March 2nd to Newark. I couldn’t get a mask or I would have worn one. I did disinfect everything I touched, including my airplane seat and tray. I started disinfecting all packaging from grocery shopping and deliveries shortly after even though experts said there was no need. I’m no scientist or doctor, but these things seemed like common sense measures that are only recently being encouraged.
  11. The CDC is examining the recommendation of masks in public. Considering the shortage, has anyone thought of what they might do if that recommendation is made? I’m considering possibly buying a sowing machine and making my own. I’d want to do some research on making them before going down this path.
  12. I legitimately think he has dementia. I hope the Democrats have a legitimate alternative plan or it might be another four years of Trump. I’m not a Democrat, but I would like to see a more professional and mature person in office than the current president.
  13. The reality is that Trump has done a poor job, but he’s not solely responsible for shortages of supplies for states that were warned of shortages. He also is not solely responsible for the inadequate national stockpile that his last two predecessors, especially the last one failed to replenish to recommended levels. Anyone who wants to solely point fingers at him is kidding themselves. This is a failure on multiple levels of government over decades. Where was Congress during this time? Oh yeah, focused on an impeachment that was essentially a complete waste of time and money. He was also criticized for the travel ban as being racist. I live in Illinois, and my governor has been vocal about social distancing and safety. If he cares as much as he claims to, he would have delayed the primary. Instead, he put millions of voters at risk. You won’t get arguments from me that his talk has been detrimental for this pandemic, but it’s not realistic to ignore that there is responsibility for this across the board. Trump and ALL politicians should be held responsible for their failures.
  14. There’s plenty of blame to go around for not being prepared. I don’t think it’s accurate to lay the blame solely at Trump’s feet. Truthfully, we were not prepared to be in front of this and wouldn’t have been regardless of which administration was in charge as medical experts had warned of this type of issue for at least three administrations. With that said, it also didn’t help that China was not being forthright with the impact of this virus. I think I saw a Bloomberg article today that said US intelligence says China’s infection and death numbers aren’t accurate. I’ve thought this for weeks and most media has downplayed at as conspiracy. I think there should be some sort of recourse for what has happened as it has directly impacted the rest of the world. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bloomberg.com/amp/news/articles/2020-04-01/china-concealed-extent-of-virus-outbreak-u-s-intelligence-says
