Edit:  wait, are the oranges and berry crunch included?  I may make an offer.

Fair enough, I didn’t say nobody was panicking.... there will always be some mouth breathers who think that they’ve got the last loaf of bread humanity will ever make.  For those folks, yea you got no argument from me.  Frankly, those folks irritate the hell outta me because they’re the ones who also turn every flake of snow into the end times as well.  But that’s another subject, eh?

It’s a little bit the same subject, but that’s fine. I saw one lady buying 6 12 packs of toilet paper. Me and another guy were staring in amazement, and when she left, he asked me “How much is she planning to sh!t?”, to which I replied “I don’t know, but it’s always good to have a plan”. We laughed.

Tell that to the people in the supermarket tonight. Bunch of savages in this town!

Speaking of Clerks, I have tickets to the Horrorhound convention in Cincinnati for next weekend, and ofc there’s a bunch of people I wanted to meet this year, including Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Brian O’Halloran and Jeff Anderson. And for some inexplicable reason it’s not been canceled or postponed yet. Even though our governor is putting a mandate on sporting events, parades, etc. I don’t think I’ll go either way at this point. I know this stuff is trivial in the grand scheme of things, but it still sucks.

My favorite movie of the 90’s probably. Sorry to hear you’ll miss out on that.

I have to imagine stuff like that is an easier decision than postponing or cancelling the rest of a pro sports season.

yeah at those events you have to expect it there's ALWAYS cancellation every year. Sometimes it's super last minute too but its part of the game

Ive been designing all the marketing stuff for an event in buffalo that is happening later this month... im not done but i kind of want to rush and finish so that i'm still paid even if they cancel and dont need their brochures or wtv lol I agreed on a flat fee for the whole thing so i kind of don't wanna have to go and have to justify what i did and didnt do so what they really owe me etc etc

Same activity boost here, we have had to suddenly boost remote mobility capability by almost 300% in weeks to keep the medical staff going. It has been madness and most of us are exhausted.

We might need to have a separate IT thread to share stories and/or tips lol.  I recently took a Director position with a new company and faced with a few challenges that I could use some recommendations for and bounce see ideas off of people.

My daughter's middle school play (Cinderella...she wasn't lead, but still had to put in many hours of rehearsal time) was canceled (not sure if it ever gets rescheduled).  And we had tix for two upcoming Devils games (3/19 and 3/28) and Wicked on Broadway (3/21)...obviously none of those are happening.

She's expectedly bummed, but I explained to her that EVERYONE is in the same boat, and events and vacations that people have looked forward to for weeks, months, and even longer are all being postponed or outright canceled left and right...it's OK to feel disappointed, but getting overly angry or upset about this or looking for someone to point the finger at is pointless...if anything, count your blessings that YOU are not sick yourself, or have yet to lose anyone to this.  I'm 100% OK with those in charge of making such decisions erring on the side of extreme caution.  Hopefully sooner than later, some people will stop acting like complete "Me me me" a$$holes (NOT referring to anyone on this site in the slightest...my wife was a witness to some of this behavior at our local food store yesterday...she decided to give up and instead went early this morning, and that scene was considerably more sedate), and everyone will come together as best as can possibly be expected and work together to get through this...we are actually capable of that, but sadly it usually takes some major crisis before that happens.  And even more sadly, once we do get manage to either get past or at least whittle down such a crisis...too many go right back to being the "me me me" a$$holes that they were prior.

i dont think that team was really crap at the end of the season. They werent contenders, but they still play in decent hockey for team that was half AHL half rockies. After january begin i remember only devils blues(when devs shot 17 times or so) and devils vegas games when devils were really bad at all. 
I like this team and i really interesting in how things will go on. And i will miss the games too. More than 14  years with online translations  i ruining my health.

It's a damn shame for sure. You forget how deeply entrenched sports are in most of our lives except for when they're not there. But, as everyone says, best to err on the side of caution.

 

But don't worry boys! We got us a donnybrook!

I am a little skeptical about their numbers regarding % of population being infected and number of Americans that will die of the disease.

I am not saying we should take this any less lightly, but again the death rate seems to fairly different from country to country.

Yeah that stinks. My daughter's dancing school has suspended operations for 2 weeks, and still plans to hold their recital in June. 

I am hearing rumors her play (Annie, my daughter is playing Ms. Hannigan and I can't wait to see my 12 year old play an alcoholic) has been postponed, but have not gotten confirmation of that. I know one school locally cancelled the live performance of theirs, and instead is going to have the kids do it without an audience (or during school with an audience of kids) and recording it for the parents. 

At least you know Wicked isn't going anywhere, you'll get a refund and you'll try again. I just spent $600 on tickets to Dear Evan Hansen for my daughter's birthday, which is one week after the current date they are supposed to resume. 

I did find it interesting that StubHub was offering refunds on cancelled events, either 100% of what you paid credited back to you, or a credit on your StubHub account of 120% what you paid that you can use within the next 12 months. I had bought very expensive aftermarket tickets for her birthday last year (3 times face value), and was wondering if I'd have been SOL if it was cancelled. 

Interestingly, the state Courthouses remain open despite the restriction on "gatherings of 500 or more", which almost certainly happens every day. That said, I already got a call about the court appearance I had scheduled for Monday, and that was postponed.

make it a point to see how long you can go without having to get dressed. That's what I would do.

Honestly the part I am most excited about is a full week's worth of The Price Is Right.

Hope your daughter gets to perform.  Rumors here is that my daughter's play will be outright canceled, but no confirmation on that yet.  Opening Night (first of three performances) was to have taken place last night.  

Yeah I bought my game tix off Stubhub and was pleasantly surprised that I was offered a refund...I pretty much resigned myself to the fact that secondary market tickets + not paying to have them insured = SOL indeed.  

My daughter's school is closed through 3/30, just announced.  Online classes start on 3/17.
