Which raises some interesting questions. Maybe the Russians planted the virus in China and then spread the virus to all of NATO.

I think Italy will have to ban the Russians from entering just in case!


Yeah, right! It makes sense to me now! Long before planting the virus, they even planted a jerk in US to ease and mislead its people, saying things like

It’s going to disappear. One day — it’s like a miracle — it will disappear.
...these professionals. They’re incredible. And everything is under control.
We have a very small number of infected people in this country.
3.4% (dead) is really a false number.
No, I’m not concerned at all. No, we’ve done a great job with it.
Nothing is shut down, life & the economy go on.
We’re doing a great job with it. And it will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.


Obviously Russia is breaking down Nato through their proxy.

Thank you for opening my eyes :roll:

You didn't happen to see those two pigs, kangaroos in your case, having sex mid air?


No, I didn't see them, but how could I?! My view was blocked from Aussies hoarding toilet papers. Those scumbags are ruining my country

Paphitis wrote:The other reason why I am now suspecting China (and I'm no conspiracist), is because China is being very quiet and not letting other countries how they managed to control the virus. The other possibility is that they are covering up or suppressing the real statistics and may not be in control at all.



Thank God you are not conspiracist, but simply constantly throws your wacked ideas around.

Just for the record, Pathetic. What next nation will be your most despised?

You are only allowed to be out for work, getting supplies, going to a doctor or a pharmacy or the bank.

ID must be carried at all times, and there will be a 150 euro fine for violators.

all shops will close unless they sell necessities.

Good luck Maximus and stay safe.

We won't be far behind you. I think it's happening very soon.


There are so many wonderful entertainment programs on YouTube which I can watch on my large TV screen with the sound system.

So Paphitis sought to correlate selfish hoarding buying with ethnicity. Well how about this for a correlation. The more avid a supporter you are of Trump style politics the greater the chance that you will also shamelessly engage in extreme egregious selfish behaviour in response to this global crisis.

If anecdotal evidence is good enough for Paphitis correlation then is it good enough for this one ?

The first problem is with some people who buyout certain stock from stores and the bigger second problem is, that the stores allow such purchases. Capitalism at it's worse.

The stores do not care who will go without certain items necessary in their homes. They only care how much business they can generate and how fast. They are not interested of rationing their goods as they do not believe it is their duty. Therefore, greed comes from the hoarders of essential stock, especially by those who will resell them at marked up prices to gouge the people needing them and greed by the stores to sell as much as possible in the shortest time so to re-order more.

In the end, it will all break even.

Lets take toilet papers for example.

Some people will buy much more than they need and the stores will re-order and sell more and more. When this pandemic is over, people are going to be stuck with surplus of toilet papers and will not be needing to buy anymore for a long time. The stores will end up with a huge stock of toilet papers they can't sell as they are not needed as much as before.

Water always finds it's own level, and I believe so will the toilet papers in time!

I don't mind the lock-down here in Switzerland, but the only problem is, I didn't get the chance to get my haircut recently and now all the hairdressers are shut down. I have a full head of thick hair and it grows quiet fast, and already it is getting bushy at the top. If this goes on for few weeks, well, no problem, but if the lock-down goes on for few months, I am going to look like Tom Hanks in the movie "Castaway".

Just the hair and not the body! :D

A few days ago, I had my first haircut at home since I was a kid :D

These were the steps
1) Machine at 6: I did the sides and back myself
2) Wife helped out with trimming places that were not-so-good and also making a gradual trim to the top
3) Machine at 35: I did the top myself
4) Trimming here and there

Result: More than good enough for working from home and some rare shopping :lol:
