I gave my wife a World Map and a Dart.

"Throw this dart, and wherever it lands I will be taking you on holiday after this Coronavirus Epidemic is over"


Turns out we are spending 2 weeks behind the fridge. :roll:

That's a cute pint size pup BTW. :D
If you mean my dog. Photo is from the past but he is not much bigger now. He always stays around 4 kilograms. But he is more dog as my dear departed dog of 25 kg. (Jack Russell - Pinscher - Chihuahua and of all these breeds the most distinctive).
He just gets more and more gray hair :)
He had come to us fresh, barely a hand tall in this picture.

He's a car and bike freak. From my house to Greece - always in the front of the car and standing all the way to Italy. When the Tour de Suisse came through our house, he completely freaked out. He watched nervously but interested, attentive and calmly as they ran through in front of him on their bikes. One, I think a Dutchman even looked at him. He probably lost a few seconds because of my puppy.

A wonderful innovation. It's so reassuring to know we have such sterling people labouring on the frontiers of medicine.

Edit: Man I wish that was real. Trump just doesn't shut up and he is so ignorant of what's going on.

I wouldn't put it past him that it is true what the Chinese claimed and that he released the viruses on the market in China!

I'm not sure that playing "I Want To Live Forever" in the supermarket this morning was the most appropriate selection!

That is something I don't believe, neither do I believe that the Chinese unleashed the virus upon the world.
If this were true and proven, it's a world war in the making and let's be serious the US system and the Chinese system don't want that at all - that's a situation were there would be no winners.

I don't believe that china had anything to do with creating or unleashing this on the world.
it would be rather stupid to unleash it on your own people first, even for china.

were they untruthful about it in the beginning and even now? absolutely. they, like any other communist/socialist government do not believe in allowing the freedom of knowledge for their people. they know that if the people find out the truth about their government , that government would not be in power for long. just like those types of governments know that if they allow their people to have guns, they would not be in power for long.

Paraphrasing a quote I can't remember the source of: "You don't win the next war by launching an attack on USA or China. You win the next war by making USA and China fight each other."

Agreed on that. I saw "split off" and felt like that was maybe a reasonable compromise for whatever happened; by not deleting the messages but still not having them in this thread. But I don't see where the messages were actually "split off" to anywhere.

But I guess we didn't see the messages to know whether it was actually some other line that was crossed, and not specifically just "was political."
