Corona Virus. How much of a threat is it?

I'm reading that WalMart+Target, maybe some others, are now allowing a certain amount of ppl in the store at the same time, and after that amount is allowed in at opening time the rest line up outside and wait. When one (1) of the originals comes out, another one (1) is allowed in, and so on, all day. Controlled by store employees or rent-a-cops. Also experimenting with aisles being one-way streets in alternating fashion. That certain amount of ppl is calculated by square footage of the store.

Maybe this is being phased in at different times nationwide(?)

They've been doing this at all stores around here for over 3 weeks now.

Needed coffee this morning. Figured I’d save a lot of money by getting a bag of coffee beans instead of an espresso from the bistro place that is literally 3min from my house.

On my way to the grocery store, I remembered that Target had a particular coffee I liked that the grocer didn’t carry, so I decided to drive twice as far to the Target, which is solidly 7 times farther than the local coffee spot.

Got there, and the store was “at capacity” with another 30 people waiting outside. I took a picture and left. Figured it was a sign and so I went home without coffee, and still have a headache.

Been having the best luck at the grocery around 11am, you miss the early birds and the lunch crowd, 2:30 ain't that bad either. Still no ass paper to be found, so dumb, how much room can people have in their house to store this stuff?

Nobody is discussing the book in 1981 that dean koontz wrote ???
Love dean koontz. When I was a young submariner, I spend many an underway, reading his books. I remember being 19 and starting "Midnight" I believe. I had 8 hours until the next watch, started the book and next thing I know, time for watch. Finished the book immediately after. Smiling now at how much I enjoyed that book back then.

Regression, could be next disease. :)

Local grocery store chain just put out yesterday that all shoppers must wear a mask to come into store. Covering nose and mouth.
