One good thing about this is more humans will have "computer time" as I call it. They will learn more about computers, work online, and generate more data. Just in time for 5G networks!

But the trade off is in human lives which is not acceptable, not by any measure.
Self quarantine would provide time to come together as a family and sit down together and eat meals together or have family discussions, but again, this is all coming at a very huge cost...human lives.

Not busting on your comment, just injecting another point of view (no pun intended). O0

In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

There's one in Vancouver, and one in Montreal. But you're right there are a lot more confirmed cases in the data than on the map.

I've been using this for information. It shows plenty of cases in Canada.

The map is blank, and slow. How do we use it?

Yeah, it'll be gettng lots of hits from all over the world. You click on a location to see details about it.

*EDIT* I see what you mean. It's normally full of data, so they may be updating it or having problems

I'm doing what I can to keep from becoming infected but am not worried about it.

I've never had a flu or pneumonia shot and wouldn't get a vaccine if they tried to make me. I had the flu in 96 but overall am more healthy now than I have been for years. I'm old though and just got a year older, too. Today's my birthday.

I Social Distance as a way of life and have been for years. All I had to do was go to the store for enough food to last a few weeks and it's basically back to normal for me. I found out my homegirl went to St. Louis a couple weeks ago so she's a risk factor now. She doesn't answer her phone, and I only call once, so she might be a causality already. She's not nearly as healthy as me.

Living in a building with  approx. 50 other apartments and another building on campus that brings it close to 100 apartments makes it more difficult. There are certain things that can be done on a personal level to mitigate risk in addition to not congregating with the masses.

But no matter how many people get sick I never do so I'm just trying to maintain the odds.


"2020 is year of the snake"

I posted a New Years Eve prophesy for 2020. "I see good things on the horizon for me in 2020, The rest of the world...not so much."

I don't see any problem with it so far.

Ivan, let's keep the corona-virus chat on the topic i started :)

Canada too wants all peeps away. Only 1 in car. No restaurants open, only takeout LOL. Last I remember I got the shits from takeout after just ONE time after yearrrrs. They r so dirty, they are poopo shit sickos in there, even the ones that arn't burger king. Were's getting a curfew too. Everyone knows about, really, and all stores are shut down and economy is dying. And big fine if 5 peeps are together too close outside. Even timmys stopped Roll up the rim to win.

Btw Art, no, families will want to keep distance, so ya, more computer time for the humans! Maybe a good way to get more data! That's lovely in my eyes. It's still a bad virus even if not deadly, cus humans are overreacting maybe, 150,000 humans die each day all the time! Fact.

Perhaps they can slow the onset of death but they can no more stop aging than they can stop the sun from rising. Everything and everyone dies...

So true.

Let's just say you wouldn't want to live forever.

Not unless there was something wrong with you... immortality is the bait that many religions offer to the weak and vulnerable and there is nobody more scared of dying than the religious people who I've known. Those imbeciles pursuing artificial intelligence in the hope of living forever are just promulgating another idiotic religion.

I think the general goal/idea is gaining happiness by gaining freedom from the various things that would try to impose on your life. A mandatory ageing and eventual death process upsets that sense of desired freedom. So people naturally want to get rid of this process. I believe this is possible, and would be good for people. The other point of view states that being unable to die would also impinge on your freedom, thus upsetting people. I don't think this is achievable in a physical universe, but yes, if it were possible then that would be awful.

Oscar Mayer wouldn't even say shit like that. That's the dumbest thing I heard all day. Right Rue? I just woke up for hell's sake.


Correct HS! We want freedom, and immortality let's you have freedom. Choosing to die one day also is freedom. Except the people that like that one lose their freedom ._. !


I agree we are evolved machines on a supermassive gravity collapsing galaxy sun earth thing and all fathers and mothers have died before us, this doesn't look good friends. But, I'm trying....
