The Virus has been out here for a while, potentially well before any official reports.

They just weren't counting, and they're basically still not counting.

LOL, they've got prize drawings @ the asian groceries,  usually they only get it out for holidays,  but i guess their traffic must be down. Kekeke.

Didn't win nothing 2 day though.  I'mma go everyday since there's no minimum purchase.

Don't worry, wearing masks.

Welp, it's now in my county. Written report says "confirmed case", but news conference people said test results wouldn't be back until midnight.
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

Target has rubbing alcohol for $1.69 per bottle. That is about half the cost of the grocery store and pharmacy.

Also, I'm going to buy every bit of rice I can find and make a Scrooge McDuck vault and go swimming in it just to bother tp.

Tp4 is already @ 500LBs..  not crummy rice, sweet sticky rice.

Also don't forget beans guys, dried beans store forever, and they are higher in nutrient density than most other foods.

Word of caution on Cheapee rice guyzus, one might regrat it, because eating 100s of lbs of cheapee rice may be unpleasant.

I never took you for a prepper, TP.

Are there any indications yet that there's even any reason to stock up like this is the apocalypse? This whole thing is starting to sound like Y2K to me. All of the numbers I had seen make it sound like much less of a threat than SARS was.

I work in a school, my aunt and uncle work in schools, my mother works in a hospital. If anybody is getting Coronavirus, it is probably me, and I have still dodged all of these super viruses thus far.

The over-reaction is already happening,  which means even though we probably don't need to discontinue many services,  they may be disrupted due to the emergency measures already in the works.

So, in that sense, stocking up just in case isn't a bad idea. You don't need to go overboard and build a bomb shelter.

On the pragmatic end,   it's better to over-react than under-react when it comes to FOOD. Ontop of the fact that food doesn't cost that much in the US.

You will survive until your rice and beans runs out.   OR if the Marauders take your rice and beans.

I happen to have some canned food, not a whole lot, but I don't see this becoming some humanitarian crisis anyway. The marauders would probably want to think twice in regards to this residence, that's one thing I always do want to be ready for.

I'm in OK too. My wife even said her doctor friend, whom she saw today, saw a patient who tested positive. He quarantined himself, but not until they'd already had lunch. So long story short, I probably have it now.

Surely the doctor washed her(?) hands and had the sense not to touch your wife given the situation?  If the intelligent and informed can't follow simple advice we're rightly doomed as a species...

Nah, you don't need that,  Just get some dried food and water.

If you have to get sanitizer, buy those 71% alcohol bottles for $2. 

Hand sanitizer is just lotion + 71% alcohol.

You can rub alcohol on your hands, then the lotion.

I'm sure he did, but, if it actually made its way inside his body via water droplets or something, it would have skipped his hands entirely. But yeah, I still agree it was pretty stupid to see *anyone* if he had any suspicions.

Unlucky, I was shown a picture of empty shelves yesterday but went and shopped as normal today and the only things they didn't have was decaf coffee, seems I'm not alone in my lax attitude.  The snow did scare everyone though - there was nothing there then.  Makes you wonder how countries with real weather survive :))

This is unfortunately not true.  They are in fact prohibited from using the legally protected term "healthy" or "nutritious" on any egg based products.

With regard to the federal guidelines, Cholesterol is bad, PERIOD.  There's no if or but,   there is no scientific Confusion,  anything you hear to the contrary is the equivalent of Cigarette companies saying cigarettes don't give you cancer.

IN FACT,  Egg board hired the same people Exponent Inc, who shilled for and defended cigarette companies ontop of cooking up fake research for eggs.

I haven't heard people saying that all cholesterol is bad since the 90s or something. So-called experts seem to change their minds on what is great for you, neutral, or terrible for you more often than they change their own underwear. We've lived omnivorously throughout recorded human history, and beyond, so that's what I'm going to stick with.

I haven't heard people saying that all cholesterol is bad since the 90s or something. So-called experts seem to change their minds on what is great for you, neutral, or terrible for you more often than they change their own underwear. We've lived omnivorously throughout recorded human history, and beyond, so that's what I'm going to stick with.

There are 4 reasons for this.

Reason 1,  the original scientists already figured it out, they assumed people got the point.

Reason 2, The primary health care $$ comes in the form of heart disease, the industry has everything to lose by YOU becoming healthy.

Reason 3,  The industry ACTIVELY creates mis-information to confuse the public. All that keto-nonsense, it's big-pharma/ egg-board/ milk/ etc.

Reason 4, IF the government science devision already knows, WHY are they allowing it to happen ?   CORRUPTION,   Former and Future board members of the USDA are chaired by Corporate executives,  representing both Big-Pharma and Egg/Meat/Dairy. "Revolving Door ordeal"  < this is not conspiracy theory, The USDA was sued which finally forced them to disclose their industry ties >

I make no assumptions about conspiracy theories. All you've explained that's possibly verifiable is industry ties to the USDA, which proves nothing else, however. I find it hard to believe, even as the premise, that hunter gatherers who have done nothing but, for something like tens of thousands of years or more, have dire dietary incompatibility with these same foods.

There are alot of assumptions to the hunter gatherer theory, and they too have been proven false.

I recommend you watch _The Game Changers_ documentary,  it gives you a basic outline.  All of its presented information comes from the highest verified source like Harvard Health.

Humans are NOT Omnivores. We are very strict herbivores.

We are smart enough to use engineering to make Meat somewhat edible, however it is toxic to our system, because it is against our primary evolutions to consume meat.

If you feed a Cat, which is a real carnivore, an ALL meat diet, lots of fats, etc,  it will be fine.
If you feed a Cat grains,  it will exhibit diabetes, and die.

If you feed a Human, an all meat, lots of fats diet, WE GET Diabetes
If you feed a Human, an ALL SUGAR diet, it CURES diabetes (type 2) in 90% of the cases. <Pritikin,  Ornish,  > Look it up.

They've known about this since the 70s,  and in some cases there were independent literature written ~100 years ago on the subject, but Big Pharma covered up the truth, and crank out the pills.

Where would I find this documentary? I thought that merely consuming grains that are converted to sugar in the body can cause diabetes, except when it comes to rice ... for people from Asia, since that's been their bread and butter for thousands of years. I know I gain a lot of weight when I'm consuming a lot of sugar, and some forms of diabetes can be cured through losing excess weight. Then there's all of the research saying that eating only vegetables is causing people to have major deficiencies in important categories, and those who have switched back to eating meat suddenly feeling so much better like the flip of a switch.

I keep an open mind, but I find it hard to believe that there's some sort of anti-vegetarian shadow conspiracy that's controlled the narrative at literally all levels. As previously mentioned, my mother works in healthcare. She's in nuclear medicine, but that intersects with a lot of different types of imaging, and she does run stress tests on patients, and communicates directly with a lot of people involved in such. I've learned most of what I have heard from her.

The documentary is available on NETFLIX. the documentary is about WFPB, not diabetes specifically, there are other documentaries for that.

Diabetes is AN INDUSTRY.  A very profitable one.

The primary circuit of diabetics is Type 2, which is a LIFE STYLE choice derived illness.

As for a General description of WHY. Diabetes is NOT caused by consuming sugar.  Diabetes is caused by excess fats consumption, leading to high concentration of intramyocellular lipids, leading to insulin resistance, leading to glucose intolerance cycling.

My town is basically dead. Empty stores with one person working, ghost town busses, everyone with an office job working from home for the next few weeks.

Grocery store's still packed though, and with all those bodies and potential contaminatable injestable objects it's probably best to avoid.

They apparently closed a local Woodman's in the early afternoon today because there was nothing left to sell.
