Scary virus outbreak in China

BlueFoxBlueFox Posts: 13,015
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.

    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.

    No idea why you would put that out there on CP.

    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...
