    It's the hardest thing I've ever done for sure. I smoked for 15 years and probably royally ****ed my lungs up since I started when I was a teenager. Quit a pack-a-day habit cold turkey in 2014. Got bad migraines at first, irritable, cold sweats, etc. Then those passed and I just got the mental cravings. I still get them from time to time to this day. Talking about it right now is giving me a craving for a cig. I know people that have gotten into the Juul and I feel bad for them. They're even more addictive than cigs are. 5% nicotine. They're going through a pod a day which is roughly the equivalent of a pack of cigarettes. That's going to be RIDICULOUSLY hard to give up.

    50% of the sick are in NY City.

    Some rural areas with no people sick or receding numbers can go back to normal soon. No reason to lock down Topeka because New York is off the spectrum.

    They have billions of people who have no food or money. Shocking but they live differently than here.

    You gotta make sure it is pretty much under control before you do that. Can’t afford this risk of another breakout happening there.

    My state has instituted a shelter in place for a few weeks. Nothing has really changed since the only places left open we’re pretty much the essential ones.

    110 cases so far, 1 death

    My girlfriend is an RN and in the hospital administrations infinite wisdom they have decided it’s a good time for some cutbacks to hours for nurses and doctors. So that’s pretty neat

    Of course.

    Facts are that high populated areas are the worst off.

    I’ve started following this gentleman from GB. What he just had about Spain...horrifying.

    No guns are issued there. Only batons. Very effective. I wish them the best of luck with the lock down.

    My thoughts and prayers are with NYC. They're going through hell right now... 6,500 911 calls a day, up from 300 a day last week.

    NYC’s 911 Overwhelmed With Record Number of Emergency Medical Calls

    Ship, and especially subs are basically a petri dish. So are any forward deployed location. Nobody truly realizes how dirty even a “clean” environment is over there. Packed chow halls and showers. Awesome spot for a virus to take root.

    Don't let statistics get in the way of a sweeping generalization of a country made in clear bad faith.

    That policing style is a mix of Tae Kwon Do discipline and NFL training camp.
