Everyone just needs to slow down. Take the rest of the week. Stay home unless you need medical care or food, and see where the world is Monday. The country seems to be in a free-fall panic right now.

I had a deal go south and the buyer told me he was gonna wait and see if the market crashes. I was kinda shocked.

The biggest question for me is, if this shit started in china and is something new, how the hell is it popping up in remote areas with single cases with no contact with other people or travel?? But suddenly one person in BFE has been tested positive.. I know there probably is no answer but..

We decided this evening that our pool purchase is not the best choice right now . The casinos and hotels in Vegas are not very busy right now . Hotels are cutting shifts . Very hard turn with the economy right now. Very sad

Shit is getting real for sure.

My 9-5 is as a Regional Sales Manager for a Global
Company. I run teams here in Denver, Manila and Kuala Lumpur. My Manila team started going remote this week, My Denver team and KL Team will be remote starting next week.

The business I own does Telecom for a lot of companies many of you do business with everyday. My clients are all in the process of setting up every employee they can for remote work. Thankfully cloud based Telecom makes it pretty easy but it’s still a bitch and it’s going to impact a lot of the things all of us do on a day to day basis including a lot of shit you don’t even think about.

The wife and I have Suite tickets to see Post Malone tomorrow and most likely won’t be going. Despite being young I have a compromised immune system and Respiratory disease so I now have to lock down completely, tomorrow will be my last day working in my office and I likely won’t be leaving my house for the foreseeable future.

I’m fairly insulated financially because of the Industries I’m in but people in the service industry are completely fucked. Mom and Pop’s are going to be killed off over this and people in industries that require customer facing interaction are going to be without an income for god only knows how long.

Buckle up kids. This thing is going to get really rough.

I don’t post that much here and troll like a motha-humpin’ king, bit the levels of insanity are getting SO HIGH, with soooo much pandemonium, I don’t know where this all is going to take us.

The media and some underlying forces definitely are creating a lot of havoc that very well may lead to a recession with all their “fecesisims”.

Don't you have a roof to finish?

my best guess is its not a new virus in china but they have know for a while and until it made its way to another location/country and the lines started drawing back to china then the shit hit the fan follow back to the 2 drs who initially discovered both dead...probably why china was building 30+ medical facilities pretty quickly... just my 2 cents

I’m waiting for Channel 7 Mega Doppler 5000 Corona watch 2020 coverage. Reporters standing in infected hospital quarantine wards wearing rubber suits. Should be full swing by end of next week
