    Paranoid or not, we're playing it safe. No shows, Schiitrmeets, business travel, vendor meetings for a while.

    If I wait long enough, and assuming I'm still alive, maybe xkcd might render all that stuff understandable.

    The most important take home message is this virus was out and spreading before anyone knew any better.

    I refuse to call this COVID-19. It should be called Wuhan or China Coronavirus, or SARS2. I have weakened lungs from prior illness. Going to be seriously pissed at Chinese eating bat soup if I die.

    Rumours about bat soup being the cause of the outbreak are currently unsubstantiated.

    That said, it seems the Chinese government quelled reports of the outbreak at first to keep people from panicking (Google: "Li Wenliang"), which is fucking stupid.

    Anteater soup. I stand corrected. (bats - > anteaters -> humans)

    LOL! Well ultimately sourced from bats it seems so point still stands, but didn't mean to be pedantic. Didn't even know about the pangolin thing until just now. Man they're friggin cute, I'd want one as a pet if I didn't know the one cat would try to murder it. Also ethics of keeping a non-domesticated animal locked up.

    All of this stuff is just noise. The real news is how, even with all of our technology and sophisticated systems, this virus came out of nowhere and has the potential to destroy global economies and kill huge numbers and there isn’t much we can do except hope for the best. Nature > technology

    Bah. It isn't that much. We're overdue, what @Psalmanazar said.

    Stop smoking and you’ll be fine. Get enough vitamin C.

    Why anyone boards a cruise ship is beyond comprehension. From Covid to Norvo, to food borne bugs they are floating petri dishes.
