    Your math is wrong, but I’m guessing someone already mentioned it.

    When my number is up, I’ll go.

    Am I going to step in front of a bus just to get to the other side of the street? No.

    Would I run into a burning building to save a baby? Most likely.

    To save a cat? Not likely.

    I’m not religious or even spiritual really. I do know I’ve lived a good and full life. Is there more to live for sure.

    Most of the blood males in my family don’t make it past 65 for lots of reasons. So I have lived my life accordingly.

    I ain’t scared when it comes but I’ll keep having a ball till it happens.

    One of my best friends passed away in December of cancer that started in his lungs after exactly 2 years of diagnosis. Never smoked or in risky situations.

    As of the end of February his business is wiped off the face of the planet, wife has sold the house and moved out to Arizona. It’s like he never even existed.

    Went to church every Sunday during the last 9 years I’ve known him. 67 years old.

    Gone, just the same. Just like all of us will be too.

    I've been home for a couple of weeks now. We (California) are under a 'stay at home' order from the governor.We can go out for 'essential' purposes though. One of the items in the list below says no going to playgrounds. I did see several people at the golf course smacking balls while I was out for a walk. Doesn't a golf course qualify as a playground?

    Im not sure if California is really on a "shelter in place" order. My brother lives in Ridgecrest and Lemoore and hasn't been available to play Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare online all weekend!!!!!

    But the numbers you're seeing now are the people who got it two weeks ago. Ohio took very aggressive precautions early and whether they were right or not will become clearer in a couple of weeks. China went way ahead of what any democratic country could ever do and it has apparently worked well so Ohio has probably gone as far as it could have done and my bet is, in a little while, they'll be in front of the curve.

    Personally I think all the western world must be going to get much more of a beating than China just because we're so much more democratic and our societies couldn't cope like their more controlled people.

    And Florida is doing it's best to allow as many of the me generation as want to visit its beaches get as good a chance of picking it up and redistributing it as it can, such extremes in one country eh!

    Ok, maybe it is wrong. I took number of deaths and divided that by number of infections. How do you do it correctly? Not trying to be a smart***, actually asking for information.
