    Women aren't going to cut back on using 2 rolls per day even if the every volcano erupts at once.

    I thats the point, most folks won’t even know they have the virus. The banning of large public gatherings is designed to protect the folks who have weak immune systems. The typical 30 year old will never know they were exposed or are carrying the virus. They then think all is good and head to grandmas for dinner or a family gathering where it gets passed to grandma. She gets the virus and has no idea where it came from because she “hasn’t been in contact with anyone who had the virus”.

    Anyone hauling these loads, well, you better arrive fully covered in a hazmat suit! That load won’t be very profitable if you end up getting coronavirus! :D

    What..? No matches..?
    What if electricity goes and all the ones who fix it get sick!
    No stove!
    I wont need it. I am used to eating cold nasty food from a can to have prepared for these trying times.
    Cold greasy cans of chef boyardee and chunky soup with grease floating, and spam and crackers, potted meat!
    Hard times aren’t here yet.

    I think it’s because people are planning to hunker down at home for a certain amount of time. We all use toilet paper. I don’t really get why people are hoarding water. Every house has running water. Just my opinion.

    The couple posts about how they want to regulate us to death until they feel they need us is spot on. Let’s keep truckers confined to a box until we don’t have supplies on the shelf and then let them out to run around like crazy.
     
    401-Alex, Rideandrepair, PE_T and 2 others Thank this.

    There has been what? 50 deaths from corona virus? But they would make people think no HOS would kill hundreds or thousands per day.
