ok i did some thinking and ive got a new plan

this pandemic is predicted to go very wide, right? like 40-70% of the earths population is gonna get it in the next year or two?

and the big threat is that if (when) you get it the health care system will be overloaded or in a state of collapse?

the optimal strategy seems obvious: arrange to get the coronavirus NOW while there are still hospital beds and working ventilators available

yeah ive been keeping it low-key. ive been working from home for awhile now, and everything i do is remote. took a day to get my ide and env setup at home.

today i did absolutely nothing except play factorio and agree with my co-workers on slack.

boss/owner went and ordered a bunch of laptops for all our interns so they can work from home, so i've been helping them remotely get set up with the vpn. we're a small company so i do most of the poo poo, even though i know very little outside of development stuff.

so far this just feels like a flu. i felt a bit tired yesterday with a sore throat, but was still able to lift in my basement. today i felt a bit worse but no fever.

working from home rules and i hope i never have to go back.
its entirely possible that it is plain ol' ordinary flu (did you get your shot?)

do you have any corvid symptoms? fever, persistent cough? diarrhea? shortness of breath? or are they more ordinary flu-like (chills, aches & pains, headache)?

my breath has been a bit shorter today, and a cough seems to only hit in the morning. no aches or pains, no chills. my body temp doesnt seem to be out of the ordinary, i feel warm, but the thermometer just says 99.1 which isnt outrageous.
its also allergy season, which could also account for some of those symptoms. or maybe you're one of the majority of 'rona sufferers who has a mild case

sounds like youre doing the right thing (stay home, social distance, presumably lots of fluids and bedrest and tylenol)

good luck

for what its worth my brother is an actuary for a global insurance company and he said the industry estimates last week were half the 1918 epidemic.

that would mean were in for a fatality rate of 1.5% of the global population this time.
theyre predicting 40-70% of all people will catch the disease, with a 2-3% death rate

so 1.5% total fatalities sounds about right

117 million deaths worldwide
5.1 million americans

There's a teeny little airstrip out in the central valley called Harris Ranch where you can fly in and go get a steak and if you show your pilot's license you got 10% off.

It is of course a cattle ranch, with a huge feedlot, so you can smell when you're approaching the airfield well before you can see it. I usually start noticing it about 20 miles out at 5000 feet
theres a similar effect approaching coalinga on the i5 - you smell that feedlot long before you see it

even when printing cash to avoid a total economic collapse they cant resist self sabotaging pro-banker impulses
not self-sabotaging - the banks and super rich got a huge pile of unaccountable bailout money and tax breaks in the corona bill

theyre gonna swoop in and buy up all the distressed companies and properties (for a fraction of their actual worth) once the market hits bottom

we are going to come out of this crisis with even greater concentration of wealth at the very highest strata of society
