  1. Coronavirus shutdowns have unintended climate benefits: cleaner air, clearer water "I think there are some big-picture lessons here that could be very useful," one scientist said. But experts warned that observed reductions are temporary and that as cities, countries and economies bounce back, so, too, will emissions — unless major infrastructure or societal changes are adopted. Klopp said the pandemic could make companies and governments realize that other threats to humanity, including climate change, could be just as devastating and that it's imperative to develop protective measures. "As we move to restart these economies, we need to use this moment to think about what we value," she said. "Do we want to go back to the status quo, or do we want to tackle these big structural problems and restructure our economy and reduce emissions and pollution?" https://www.nbcnews.com/science/environment/coronavirus-shutdowns-have-unintended-climate-benefits-n1161921
  2. Somehow, this is all starting to sound more and more like the plot in the movie, 'V is for Vendetta,' as described in the following scene:

  4. Since we're fighting a war, we need to ration grocery items... just like the governments did during WWII.
  5. Great suggestion! I think I'll combine them with a tabo.

  7. I was only helping Jake by giving him an answer. The truth is that the most stores are empty and those of us who don't want to use a tabo (like my wife does) seriously need alternatives to toilet paper (when there is none to be found).
  8. True! However, it shows how the US government will bail out the big banks and big corporations before they will ever help the little guy. For what it’s worth, my respect for Ford also increased during that period for solving their financial problems on their own (without involving the help of the US government).
  9. in 2008, we had the very same situation over here in the States, plus the government also bailed out the auto industry. One of the auto companies (Chrysler) filed for bankruptcy, and Chrysler is now owned by Fiat. As far as I know, the taxpayer money has never been paid back by Chrysler.
  10. I just use one of these plastic cases to keep my soap separate for my own use only, and I hide it, of course!
  11. I used to think that 'Doomsday Preppers' were crazy!... but they're the ones who are really prepared for empty shelves at the supermarkets. "What 'Preppers' Can Teach Us About Dealing With the Coronavirus Outbreak But there’s one group of people who need not rush to Target or Walmart to stock up: So-called “preppers,” or people who go to what many consider to be extreme lengths to prepare for emergencies. Whether they’re concerned about terrorist attacks, natural disasters or any number of other threats, preppers take comfort in having enough supplies on hand to weather a storm — or an outbreak." https://time.com/5797950/coronavirus-preppers/
  12. Forget about the tabo and tp, I'm saving up my $'s to buy one of these:
