    They will go overboard on this soon, for containment anyone displaying any symptoms will be put in quarantine, and then if you are not really sick you may be soon.

    I had the same thought to clear the line at the grocery store cash register last night. :p

    Then they’re really going to go crazy in Texas and across the South, as this is already one of the worst allergy seasons in years.

    i think it best in all seriousness, not to play games by faking anything. that video was done as a comic relief to the situation, but we all know too well that there are nuts out there that very well may pull that trigger.

    that's what i was thinking, when i saw that video above.

    i too have seasonal allergies and when ever exposed to animals.

    not a good time to have a real allergy reaction when standing in any sort of line, or near any people.

    the way i "see it", there are way too man people on the edge right now, and many very well may indeed have an "itchy trigger finger".
     
    D.Tibbitt, x1Heavy and tarmadilo Thank this.

    Our son’s school has announced they will remain open, but any child with even a runny nose, cough, sneeze, etc. will be sent home. Think about it... an elementary school in the midwest in spring time. What kid DOESN’T have a runny nose?

    Absolute lunacy.
