I never liked a beer that had so little taste it needed a lime to be drinkable. :blink:

Another year another disease. Seems like every year these days.

Yes which is why I drink ale in the US. I wouldn't touch the lawn mower beer I drink here in SE Asia back home. Lawn mower beer = so light and with so little taste it's great to pound down a few after mowing the lawn.  B)

Sorry :sign0006:

I like beer Leo the most in Thailand out of the big 3 and Coors Light is the closest approximation I can find in the US.

If anyone has a better approximation of Leo.. please share by all means in a PM.

We all do. Problem is I don't trust these former communist regimes. Their culture is disinformation and hold back the truth. Like Chernobyl.

China’s Coronavirus Has Already Killed 9 People and Infected Almost 500. Now It’s Mutating.

"Basically, do not go to Wuhan. And those in Wuhan please do not leave the city."

 

China’s health authority reported another major spike in reported cases of the coronavirus on Wednesday and confirmed that the death toll from the outbreak has risen to nine.

The National Health Commission (NHC) in Beijing said that as of midnight on Tuesday, there were 440 reported cases of the respiratory illness in Wuhan, the city where the outbreak began over three weeks ago.

There are dozens of more cases of infection in other parts of China and, increasingly, outside the country’s borders.

Let’s hope this disease is just more of the usual fear porn hyped up by the MSM for the usual reasons and that it’ll eventually fizzle out into nothing.

Snakes could be the source of the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak

Snakes -- the Chinese krait and the Chinese cobra -- may be the original source of the newly discovered coronavirus that has triggered an outbreak of a deadly infectious respiratory illness in China this winter.

 

The researchers used an analysis of the protein codes favored by the new coronavirus and compared it to the protein codes from coronaviruses found in different animal hosts, like birds, snakes, marmots, hedgehogs, manis, bats and humans. Surprisingly, they found that the protein codes in the 2019-nCoV are most similar to those used in snakes.
 
In the case of this 2019 coronavirus outbreak, reports state that most of the first group of patients hospitalized were workers or customers at a local seafood wholesale market which also sold processed meats and live consumable animals including poultry, donkeys, sheep, pigs, camels, foxes, badgers, bamboo rats, hedgehogs and reptiles. However, since no one has ever reported finding a coronavirus infecting aquatic animals, it is plausible that the coronavirus may have originated from other animals sold in that market.

Recent Coronavirus case here in LA.

Anyone remember The Omega Man with my favorite HAM actor Charleton Heston? He even shags a hot black girl in that movie, ah the 70s.

Spokesperson of NRA? 

This Coronashit is just getting better. Its the end of the world as we know it.

China has effectively quarantined nearly 20 million people in Hubei province, with no planes or trains in or out of Wuhan. Cities have been hit by closures of cafes, cinemas, theatres and exhibitions.

There have been long queues - and some squabbling - at food stores for diminishing stocks.

Face masks are compulsory in all public places in Wuhan and some residents are saying it is like a ghost town.

With so much bullshit and propaganda in the MSM, it’s very difficult, if not outright impossible, to know wtf is actually going on. Is this just more of the usual fear porn (I suspect it is) or are we looking at potentially massively lethal global pandemic? I sure as hell have no definitive idea.

It may not be the end of the world, but China is taking the necessary precautions in the event it does spread like SARS did. Quarantine is one way to reduce the spread until they determine an effective treatment for the virus.

Actually I kinda like the MSM telling you the stuff like you have to be careful of it. Better than just ignoring it or sugar coating it.

I paid attention to SARS in 2003 but I didn't to MERS since media ignored that and was all into election fever.

One of the flights I took to Thailand at the time was Emirates and there were 2 people coughing like hell on the plane. I ignored it.. but when I reached Patts, I was sick for a week.. really sick.. not some type of cold that Tylenol/ Sara could cure and I made my ladyboys sick too.

It might have been MERS but I just don't know.
