Scary virus outbreak in China

This seems to only have been in the news for a month, but China has already quarantined 11 cities, and millions of people. At some point, a virus is going to mutate into a worldwide killer.

    I think this is what I must have. I've got a bit of sinus pressure and drainage the past few days. And a dry cough.

    Great, yet another scare of doomsday that will have cries of 'Gub'ment people asking for more tax.

    They probably already have the cure but it will cost half a household per person to pay....and China will have the cure.

    ....or not.

    I’ve heard that scientists have been able to grow the “other half of the brain” in some lab squirrels. There is hopes that a human trial is just around the corner.

    Threw in the towel. Heck I do not remember his eBay handle as he was selling there. I think he had one too many UPS,FedEx problems and we gave him too much gruff and he told us all to go place sand in our nether regions.

    I think the subject was the member who was flying his new white drone in a snow storm and lost contact with it when he was testing how far it would fly or something. What a character. He may still be out looking for it.

    I used to have two possums who hung out in my shed. I would see them when I would be in spa at night, and they made a racket coming out of the shed. Thankfully they never had a brood like that.

  • Would that be considered a plethora of possum ?

    I think I may have the Chinese virus because it hurts when I do this:

    TUG. TUG. TUG. TUGTUG. TUG.
    TUGTUGTUG. TUG. TUG. TUGTUGTUG.
    TUGTUGTUGTUGTUG. TUUUUUUUUUG

    I believe that the proper collective term would be a mess o'possums.

    That's why they're called Opossums (with the silent "O") -- I surmise it represents their Irish origins.

    B)

    EDIT: Oh. Do make certain any opossum you consume is fully cooked. You wouldn't want to get ptomaine... or pneumonia, for that matter.

    I heard the Chinese authorities claimed to have discovered the source of the virus to be "a snake"....which sounds like a whitewash of sorts. I could be wrong...
