    A couple of posts ago you were claiming that because Eric only provided the names of 3 nations who were doing anything that Africa wasn't taking this seriously. I provided the names of several dozen...

    Not just 3 countries. Additional to Eric's list Burkina Faso, DRC, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Liberia, Zimbabwe and Lesotho have all taken measures that I am aware of, and there...

    Judging by the GOP reaction to Ebola this is very, very correct. People dying in the street is only a problem when it might cost them votes.

    Literally any person capable of listening to expert...

    Pearls before swine Sir. Some people aren't very good at the whole logical thinking thing or the whole paying attention thing.

    No, we are not. It won't be the meek who inherit the earth, but the stupid.
  6. Thanks. That is the plan. I'm more worried about...

    Thanks. That is the plan. I'm more worried about Mum, who is 78 & has had respiratory issues. She is basically in lockdown until it os safe.

    While we're at it, take care yourself. Thus far India...

    Yesterday it was announced that all 'non-essential' businesses in my home state of Victoria & NSW would shut down, with school holidays in Victoria to start early. Too much evidence of too many...

    If this virus knocks off a bunch of fraudsters like Kenneth Copeland then that will be a tiny silver lining.
  9. Not in the slightest. My 78 year old mother is...

    Not in the slightest. My 78 year old mother is doing a fair job of self isolating.

    If you are worried about getting rice avoid supermarkets and head to a Chinese/Indian or comparable food store. My local supermarket is out of rice, the chinese supermarket across the road has bags...

    The Queen Vic market is like so many other food markets - crowded at certain times of the week. Supermarkets are (normally) a lot less busy & the people are a lot more spread out. Shopping carts are...

    I am fortunate to live in a area with a lot of East/South Asian food stores. They don't generally sell fresh meat, but they have enough rice, noodles & sauces of various sorts to sink an aircraft...

    Even with a fanatical support base & a supine GOP I don't see Trump stopping elections unless there is medical advice from the most respected sources. If Anthony Fauci says suspend then that should...

    Deep breaths, deep breaths.

    It does make sense to buy it at current prices. The US has also just signed a deal giving Australia access to the US strategic reserve, so adding to it at today's...

    A mate of mine did the exact same thing when we were living in a share house 30 years ago. The really funny thing was that in order to get from the toilet to the bathroom you had to go through the...

    Biden & Sanders would look like the two old guys on the Muppet show. Whoever gets the nod they at least need someone born after WW2 ended. They also need someone who might credibly take over if they...
