Calling them " Filthy Ol' Swingers" was a joke. Remember levity? When you have a for profit healthcare system and media outlets owned by for profit corporations, you are going to get information that will help them maximize profits. Tune in so we can scare you and make a bunch of money. Go get tested so we can make a bunch of money. Go buy up all of the toilet paper so we can make a bunch of money. Is the virus real? Yes, it is real. Are people too ignorant and selfish for their own good? Yes. Should KFC be charged with crimes against humanity for selling a piece of "chicken" sandwiched between two glazed donuts? Yes!

Oh, and I would hope the friends and family of the Hanks couple care about their health the way any of us would want somebody to care about our health. Unfortunately, many celebrities caught the ME, ME, ME virus long before COVID-19 existed and think we should all be in the know whenever they take a ****.

When I went in to work today I passed the forehead scan with a digital thermometer! I scored a 95.4...huh??? I think HR had a hard time finding an accurate unit due to all being sold out. I believe it was something laser like that I use on my grill in the summer that goes up to 600 Fahrenheit maybe? Accuracy is probably +/- 10 degrees. Either way, I feel safer now.

while calling it a hoax is a bit of a stretch, it isnt as bad as everyone making it out to be.

you’re gonna get it. i will get it. our families will get it. it isnt a death sentence, however people with lung issues or heart conditions are at higher risk for more serious issues.

everyone needs to chill, practice good hygiene, and manage symptoms appropriately and public appearences if they get them.

this isnt some zombie apocolypse.

There's apparently million+ lives at stake in U.S., and unfathomable number in less developed parts of world. We'll soon learn resilience of various supply chains.

there’s million+ lives at stake every single day when people breathe air, eat food, or cross the street.

Back to the normal thread. Truce.
That video is pretty educational. I watched it twice actually because the first time I watched on my phone and the audio is quite low. He was in quite a bit of discomfort. The virus sounds really ****ty to go through. There test that he had to do sounds a bit annoying as well. They stick a stick way up your nose, not just a little ways, like way up there. He was isolated in a room for 4-5 hours too. I know I don't want this dam virus. I'm sorry sure I'd beat it but still don't want it.

Hopefully the real Hetfield gets back up on stage soon where he belongs. He is out of rehab and looking good but still has some things he needs to do before he gets back in the game full time.
