  2. Is something wrong with you. The fortnite player is just entertainer. Thats clown shit compared to people who actually work jobs that make real difference in the world - People who make a better tomorrow and who have honor.
    Take Box bulldog for example. Believe he works with sewer and plumbing or something. So hes the reason we can use the toilet and have systems for that. Imagine if we didnt. How horrible it would be.

    I believe AGK works in the medical field. People like him in that field are heroes , we always need them.

    And the cutie booty Slimjim 12 works in a factory or something and helps boom our economy and makes a big difference for the community.

    I wonder what the death rates will be after the election? I believe it is serious and I wash my hands and wear a mask and I generally avoid people anyway, but I do wonder about the numbers. Then I wonder how the numbers translate to dollars.

    My mom was positive in one county and then transferred to a different hospital in a different county. She tested positive in both and received a phone call from each counties health departments. She was one person with one case but counted twice for the state of NC.

    If a person protests or riots in the streets the spread is not documented on the news/in the media. If a person attends the Sturgis bike rally or the Republican National Convention they are spreading it with a pump sprayer and a garden hose.

    Funny how things are fed to us and even funnier and the rates in which we eat. (as a whole).

    I believe it is serious and I also wash my hands, wear the mask, etc.......BUT, I still think the numbers are not what these "professionals" are telling us. I returned to NYC for work and the city is empty, with the exception of the crazies and homeless roaming the streets. It's very depressing. I don't think the city will ever get back to where it was. If it does, it will take many years.

    Vitamin D has to be worth looking at as potential prophylactic, easy to get, cheap to buy and loads of studies been done suggesting it could minimise respiratory complications of Coronavirus.. I take 2500 IU every day with zinc..

    Another old remedy scientists have recommded for knocking Covid19 clean out is a triple therapy of Stromectol 3mg (Ivermectin) Doxycycline & Zinc.. The leader on this study is Professor Thomas Barody in Australia, I'm waiting on Stromectol and Doxycycline to arrive in post as I write this.

    that clown shit still earns more money than all of them combined, if you wake up in the morning, think about it, you reach the conclusion that you are going to work and risking the life of your own and your loved ones, over a pay thats less than a clown earns playing a videogame. unless your job is actually important or earns you serious cash, working in the middle of a pandemic doesnt pay off.

    Lol I was going to say pretty much the same thing. If I could stay home I would. The reality is you need lights, gas, shelter and food etc. All of which costs money. No work no money and then you got to start deciding which of those you going to go without.

    Thats why you always keep some money in the stash, you need to be able to go at least a few months without proper pay if shit hits the fan

    Many people here don't have that luxury. The vast majority of the so called working class lives check to check.

    Savings? Whats that? If you barely squeek by week after week there is no such thing as savings as your living to survive day to day, not for the future. Sad truth for millions.

    A lot of people work paycheck to paycheck. I know I do. It's hard.

    I save as much as I can but not as much as 'they say I need to retire'. I won't say I'm broke on Thursday before I get paid on Friday but in theory I am a check to check guy myself.

    I think the overwhelming majority are as well. Even ones that make $$$$ create a lifestyle that requires $$$$$$$$, same shit-different pay scale. LOL

    I'm leaving out in an hour or so and going to pick up a Can Am side by side. 15 stacks. I need this like I need another hole in my head. I have wanted one for some time and could never really justify the cost. A little off topic for this thread but can easily be reeled back in/tied to the subject at hand.

    Last week I had a revelation ( i think). Two years ago I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that nearly took me away from here until diagnosed/treated. Then we had a wicked flu season to boot and I am at the top of the at-risk group. Then the 2020 Pandemic hits and again after sucking at every endeavor I ever participated, of all things, again I'm the odds on winner of the Covid sweepstakes as well. Fortunately for me the medicine we make is the primary drug given in the treatment of the symptoms of the flu and Covid so we are working a mad amount of hours. Last week I worked 78 hours in 6 days. The week before that 62 in 5 days. My company is in the news for the Opiod lawsuit as well as another brand name drug issue. Our stocks plummeted. On top of that the economy as far as retirements/pensions/taxes is about to take a severe kick in the nuts after the election.

    Even tho I am not a gloom and doom type.......

    I bottled all that up and said, "Fuck it, you only live once". I came in this world both naked and broke. There is no written rule that says I can't go out the same.

    Today will be a good day.

    I'm the sole breadwinner. I'm a little relieved because I have a pension. So, the pension, along with SS, along with what I have in my 401K (which i've had to dip into), I think I'll be ok when I retire. Also, I live in a rent stabalized apartment which I will never leave. Those types of apartments are very rare in New York.
    I think if you pay your bills, put food on the table and be a good person, you are rich. Your bank account doesn't make you well off if you are a bad person. Just my opinion.

    living standards here arent expensive, i have free housing, i can rent two of my other apartments, i saved up some money just in case and my job is not the one to be afflicted by corona too much, but i cant risk infecting my almost 60 year old parents and older relatives, so i am keeping social interactions at minimum

    I don't know where you live. What do rents go for where you are? For a one bedroom?
