    Tex you mentioning the rioting thing , I have no confirmation on info given to me earlier today but was told in the country of Israel they are having riots and have government snipers on roof tops shooting looters . It reportedly was on video . That is what the U.S. policy to handel looters should be .

    I saw a video today about how India is handling the public that fails to follow their stay at home order. Their cops are carrying a big stick and they just bust their ass and chase them home. It was BRUTAL!! I bet it works!

    I actually saw some TP at the dollar general today plus a couple ignorant people who think that surgical masks can stop a biological threat.

    You obviously haven't seen the interview with the Korean Professor I posted. They most certainly help if that's all you've got. They reduce the exposure significantly - providing you know how to wear them and take them off without contaminating yourself in the process.

    One of the only things that will stop a biological threat is a CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear) rated gas mask, not a surgical mask that doctors use. Or an N95 dust mask to add on. It is recommended to wear one of the surgical or N95 masks if you are symptomatic.

    I agree with you that the only thing that will stop a biological threat is a CBRN rated gas mask. However, surgical masks do help prevent catching the virus to a degree which is why medical professionals in Asian countries wear them in outbreaks. As I said before, better than nothing if that's all you've got.

    Having said that, it's pretty pointless unless you're wearing glasses, safety glasses would be more preferable, as the virus can enter through the mucus membranes of the eyes. So all the people wearing masks without eye protection probably aren't getting the level of protection they hoped for.

    Fell asleep in my lazy boy recliner last night only to awaken about 4 am. Decided it was a good time to fill up my gasoline tank in my car. Put three speed loaders in my shirt pockets..and my GP 100 in my pancake holster and put on a set of blue nitrile gloves...and headed off. Had half a tank in my car.

    Figured 4am was a good time around here as traffic would be way down.....much much fewer Ishmaelites up and about.

    I doffed my blue nitrile gloves after putting back the nozzle and installing the gas cap.....and headed back home....no issues.

    Will be checking my various gas cans and particularly the ones set aside for 2 cycle mix and my scooter gasoline...and planning to fill them up early this coming morning....in the same manner...when most traffic should be down.

    Need to cut my grass....I hate cutting grass and I have all these lawn machines.,...go figure..
    Been procrastinating on it....but am running out of excuses.


    Agree with many of the posters...people out in rural and or country areas are more self sufficient.s..independent.

    Contacted my friend via ham radio some 400 miles west of me last night. We spoke about 30 minutes and caught up on the latest. He and his Bride are way out in the country and doing fine....well equipped and is a prepper. Retired electrician by trade...used to work with me in this shipyard.
    We set up this two way radio link...some years ago..times and frequencies....but never thought it would be a virus...
    Goes to show ….one never can tell.

    I have purchased two more rolls of 500 foot length of 12 gauge stranded black insulated wire from Lowes by which I will fabricate wire antennas if need be or repair my olde one.

    I have put them away with my other one spare roll....for future use.

    My current antenna is a 500 foot roll of that wire fished up into the tops of my trees to form an olde fashioned wire loop antenna. It works surprisingly well for how simple it is..
    Simple wire antennas of the kind the olde hams so often used.

    Have a plastic can of assorted brass in my garage. I will be reloading these cases and also the ones in my tumbler. Figured it best since I am pretty much staying home...to do something constructive as I can to keep busy. I like to reload sometimes more than going to the gun club and shooting.

    It's nothing new, the standard behaviour of the Indian police is to shout and hit random people until they confess to something.... Just don't actually expect any protection by law enforcement if you're there.
