    I'm working non-stop. I just wanted to know if other fellow IM'ers are prepping for this.

    Exactly. And they're not telling.

    It's in Wuhan. It'd be too much coincidence if people were fainting and dying on the streets because of something other than the Wuhan virus.

    Not the military. The facilities in Wuhan are civilian.

    There is no vaccine for flu. It's a mutant virus. Every infection is different in every person. You can only immunize from strains that already have contaminated someone, not the new ones.

    Still a long time to go. Things could get better.

    Me too.

    Nope. Technically impossible to avoid, you can only vaccinate against the past strains.

    It's a tough virus, it mutates with every infection.

    There's reason to be concerned, this is no joke.

    Good to hear about your biz. I'm taking some precautions myself.



    The virus attacks the lungs. Older people are more fragile. A 29 year old was one of the very first victims. People in their 20's are dying.

    Would make a nice movie.

    You plan on shooting the virus?

    But if sth really happens, war will start among people, you will need guns to protect the food.

    This is awesome. This is called sudden death which I would love to get. I would love to be attacked by the virus.

    You people are afraid of dying but I call death each and every single day, still I am alive. Death does not seem to come to me, although I tried to embrace death 3 times in the past but failed miserably.

    Sad

    Really Sad

    Infact, It's really really sad :(

    Well the thing is that when i had nothing to lose i didnt care to live thus i didnt fear death. Now i dont want to die yet, but still not afraid to die. But actually its in our genes the need and desire for survival and different people have different thought/emotions/opinions

    I'm lucky I consider my business to be something people will always need. So I consider it fool proof.

    That said if everyone died, then I need to come up with a new business plan.

    Do you plan to keep your stuff? What do you think people will do if you have food and they don't? Just lay down and starve? So if they decide to take it from you, do you think the police will come if everything is locked down?

    Sell everything and invest it in bitcoins, that should keep you safe.

    On a more serious note it seems a lot of info has been held out by the Chinese government and the numbers don't add up to the overreaction we see in hundreds of videos on the net. It's only natural to try and avoid panic waves among the population, but I think the situation is more serious this time as well. Just listened to an interview over the phone with my country's foreign affairs attache in China, he assured everything is under control there and the authorities are doing a great job handling the situation, but he acted nervous and jumpy and almost accused the interviewer in trying to put responsibility of our country's public health onto foreign affairs department (which she absolutely did not). It came out of the blue and he reacted to a formal reasonable question like a scared 8th grader.

    I've been through a few dozen Januaries and this one looks different IMO

    Or shoot the food. Fun too.

    Here's to life, mate. If you're still here, you have a mission.

    Virtual funeral home?

    So you plan on shooting starving people?

    At least 10 episodes for TWD! So I am ready! Bring it on.

    On serious note.. what the fuck mate? Yesterday more people died from car crashes by a magnitude of 100 than from the Corona virus... if you want to "prepare" your business ... then do it against real challenges, not some crap that medias shove in your throat.

    Yes because when things like electricity stop working, having money in bitcoin is going to be a good idea. If you want to be "safe" silver & gold.

    PM incoming..

    Id shoot people who want to take my food and resources if it meant my kids didn't have anything.

    It's not about how many died today, it's about how fast the number of dead people is growing daily.

    I'm only 27 and I have lived through several "deadly virus outbreaks" in my time. I'm sure we will be fine :)

    If not, who cares. Being eaten alive from the inside out by a deadly virus isn't such a bad way to go.

    If this thing takes down significant parts of infrastructure, does your business still work? If your government quarantines you in some closed zone, does the $$$ still rake in?

    LMFAO

    Thanks, I spit my coffee all over the keyboard.

    I'd feel the same if I was 27.

    You get more cautious with age.

    There was less internet on Januaries before, the media was different as well, the rest didn't change much.
