    My son and I went on a small atv ride saturday, get 1/2 mile out and see this asshole drove around my sign, and just threw it in park in the middle of the trail, and went for a 4+ hour hike.

    Fucking pissed. I left them a note.

    We rode snowmobiles up to Oquossoc Lake a few times this winter to grab lunch. The girl working at the restaurant told us about a guy leaving his new F350 and enclosed trailer partially blocking a logging road. A logger took his skidder, hooked it to the front of the pickup, and dragged it 5 miles up the logging road. I guess it took multiple wreckers to get the truck out.

    You need a skidder.

    https://www.rfa.org/english/news/chi...020182846.htmlUK leaders are accusing China of understating the impact of the virus by 15-40 times.

    as authorities lifted a two-month coronavirus lockdown in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, residents said they were growing increasingly skeptical that the figure of some 2,500 deaths in the city to date was accurate.

    Since the start of the week, seven large funeral homes in Wuhan have been handing out the cremated remains of around 500 people to their families every day, suggesting that far more people died than ever made the official statistics.

    Social media users have been doing some basic math to figure out their daily capacity, while the news website Caixin.com reported that 5,000 urns had been delivered by a supplier to the Hankou Funeral Home in one day alone -- double the official number of deaths.

    Some social media posts have estimated that all seven funeral homes in Wuhan are handing out 3,500 urns every day in total.
    The significance of this to me is that the "Infectious base" of this virus was much more widespread than originally thought. If the true numbers had been known earlier it might have made our response more urgent.

    And this: kind of interesting how they go about censoring stuff.

    Chinese social media users are scrambling to reproduce and repost a banned article by a doctor on the front line of the coronavirus epidemic in the central city of Wuhan after it was deleted by ruling Chinese Communist Party censors.

    The 8,000-character essay titled "Whistlemaker" by Ai Fen, director of the Wuhan Central Hospital ER, initially appeared in China's People magazine, but was soon deleted from its website while paper copies were removed from the shelves.

    China's tightly restricted internet went into overdrive in a bid to ensure that anyone who wanted to read it still could, with people translating it into English and braille, distorting and handwriting the text or setting the characters vertically rather than horizontally to evade automatic detection of its key phrases.

    People then retweeted and reposted the article to various chat groups and to their personal friend circles, sources told RFA.

    While some copies only survived a matter of minutes, others were still visible hours after posting, although the distortions used to evade censorship also made some versions hard to decipher.

    Journalist and writer Luo Siling said she had seen at least 10 different versions of the article online, including translations into Chinese internet slang (known as Martian), and transcriptions into Tangut script, a form of Chinese calligraphy.

    "It's all a way to get around censorship, so it's pretty cool," Luo told RFA. "The scariest thing about authoritarian power is its ability to say that black is white and vice versa."

    "You're not allowed to say that: only they are, so this is kind of a satire on the part of internet users," she said."

    I'm sure the raptor or the kubota could have dragged it anywhere I wanted.

    Well, things here could be worse: https://www.livemint.com/news/india/...417615106.html

    In a bizarre case in Theni district in Tamil Nadu, a 32-year-old Sri Lanka-returned youth who was home quarantined killed an old woman two street away by biting her on Friday, police said.

    According to police, the woman who was admitted to a hospital on Friday died on Saturday.

    Speaking to IANS, a police officer in Bodinayakkanur in Theni district said: "Manikandan had returned from Sri Lanka. He was home-quarantined. But on Friday, he ran out naked and bit the throat of an aged woman lady living two streets away."

    Police said Manikandan was taken to the government hospital and was tested for coronavirus infection and doctors are also looking at his mental stability.
    Guess “Tamil Nadu Man” is the Indian equivalent of “Florida Man.”

    Just heard #’s for Boston: 74 cases, 59 recovered so far, 2 deaths. The deaths were a 50’s woman with other health problems and a man in his 80’s.

    Boston would be golden with all the hospitals here, except it’s a regional medical hub so we have people from all over.

    My overgrown lawn tractor (with chains) pulled a box truck 150 feet up a snowy hill, no sweat. But it’s a minor league farm team compared to a skidder!

    Nobody in our group has been outside of New England. No suspect travel and very little exposure to anyone that has. Risk vectors were all small.

    It seems this is just two different things. Just like all the medical pros are saying on the TV.

    At this point in time I do not see any point in wasting brain cells trying to care about any "patient zero". It's out there. Act accordingly.
    I'm not wasting anything - I've done zero research on it. I'm just curious to know if this was floating around longer than we realized, and how much (or little) that may or may not change the game here. Again, I haven't spent a minute looking into it, just wondering.

    My entire work, 6 of us got sick in December and passed it on to others. There's a cold and then there was this, I'm not a doctor but at 40yr old I've never seen anything like it.
