What are your thoughts on it? Do you care? Has it affected you at all?

I know a lot of people are probably sick of hearing about it by now, but I thought it'd be interesting to get TC's point of view on it and see what you guy's think.

I see, here even the rooms with the machines are closed. Not sure if the whole state since there is now only a couple in reach. I never went inside the store itself cause they always turned me down not wanting to deal with it/me despite them being able to and me probably being the easiest customer they'll ever have. All they gotta do is scan a slip every day and give me some change, still get a attitude often. I can only imagine what hell I'm in for once this all dies down and everything is business as usual with the corona paranoia freshly rooted into their heads. Only went into the liquor store once to do it because I had a ton of one kind the machines wouldn't take and they sold it and they did it with an eye roll of resistance though.

I get to work from home now, which is great. I haven't had to talk to anyone in person in almost a month now. Too bad I have to take phone calls for my employer.

Apart from that, the lockdown doesn't affect me too much. I don't go to clubs or any other place where people gather anyway, and it's been almost a decade since I last saw a member of my family. I just wish stores like IKEA were still open in my state. And brothels.

There are always long lines before the supermarket now due to only a limited number of people being allowed in, but I don't have to buy anything. Thankfully, /pol/ warned me of all this early on, so I stocked up on food with long shelf life in january, and have been living off of it ever since lockdown was declared.

In terms of the virus iself, the main thing I'm worried about are the reports of re-infections or re-activations, i.e. of people who were discharged from the hospital testing positive again weeks later. So either this virus can infect you again after you already had it; or, once you catch it, you have it forever, like HIV.
As a young man with a good immune system I'm not too worried about dying right away, but getting permanent lung damage seems like a realistic threat.

Oh, and I absolutely despise my country's government for letting this virus into the country in the first place, instead of instituting travel bans all the way back in January. The only governments outside China that took this virus seriously early on were those of Israel and Korea.

Brothels, you say?
>> No. 34583 [Edit]
Those are rare enough that it's likely to just have been false negatives on the original test.

And Taiwan.

>Brothels, you say?
yeah, brothels are a good option for someone like me who hates social interaction but does have a sex drive. It's perfectly understandable that they'd be among the establishments to close down when trying to stop an infectious disease, of course.

>> No. 34589 [Edit]
>are a good option... [for someone] who hates social interaction but does have a sex drive
Don't want to derail the thread with this but this seems kind of oxymoronic since interaction with 3D in any form would seem to necessitate social communication, perhaps doubly so for something like a cathouse.
>> No. 34591 [Edit]
I have a sex drive, but I only find it incredibly annoying. I treat jacking off like taking a dump, or a piss. Just a process your body needs to complete on some regular interval. Although it exists, there is no point in giving into it for some brief pleasure, especially if that requires touching real people.

Abe just declared a "state of emergency." I suppose mere belief in the yamato spirit wasn't actually enough to curtail it.
>> No. 34609 [Edit]
Abe really messed up during the early stages of the pandemic, what with refusing to shut down incoming travel from China and all that. I always felt that Japan's gov cares a lot more about the well-being of its population than Western governments, but in this crisis they were just as bad.
>> No. 34610 [Edit]
>but in this crisis they were just as bad.

But the numbers are miles better. The curve of infections has been really slow, specially compared to the european and american disasters.
My country has 20 times their infected and 100 times their deaths, and all that having contacted with the infection weeks later than Japan and other asian countries.

Everything. Now I only go outside twice a month, for no more than 30 min., no exceptions.
My diet and habits have changed, even when I was already extremely introverted before.
Only problem with all is the brutal economic crisis that will come in the next months, I can't even imagine what will happen and all the implications but it will be huge. Also I'm somehow feeling stressed about not enjoying enough this one life chance of being able to live as a full time hikki but I feel anxious and nervous and I don't really know why.
>> No. 34614 [Edit]
Main thing is my hours got changed around for the worse, I'm now working 6 days a week with little free time before and after work.
My finances did take a bit of a hit upfront due to some panic buying when lockdown for my area was announced. I wasn't clearing out store shelves or anything but I did buy some food, supplies, a gun, silver ect. playing the stock market helped even things out a tad there however.
My day to day life has mostly been the same however as I rarely left home for anything but work, the occasional errands, and gym once a week. It's a tad annoying that the grocery store I used to visit at 2am on my way home from work is now only open to 9pm, as this was a nice way of avoiding people. I had already been practicing social distancing for years before any of this started. I don't really miss the gym since it always felt like a chore going out and having to be near people, but I do wish I had a treadmill or something at home to keep active at least. Overall it's haven't been a big deal to me.

I feel this event has really brought out a lot of people's true natures. my once friendly boss turned into an insulting and dismissive cunt when I brought up the CARES act (essentially turning insulting and telling me to go fuck myself for even mentioning it), a family member cut off contact with me just for asking if he was still interested in selling me a gun that he tried to push onto me before recent events. One of my house mates was rather pushy about me getting the gun that I did just so that there would at least be one in the house and he wouldn't have to be the one to pay for it. My dad meanwhile is bending and ignoring laws same as ever to avoid being inconvenienced by recent regulations, such as bribing the owner of a gym to let him use it, refusing to wear a mask in public and lying to police if stopped, and not adjusting rents at all for his tenants while being willing to rip them from their homes the moment they stop paying, legal or not.

That's because the population itself is more sensible and disciplined, not because of the government's actions this year.
>> No. 34617 [Edit]
Supposedly they also hadn't been testing a lot
>> No. 34618 [Edit]
That's true for sure, but it can really make such an enormous difference? Probably japanese government didn't take the ideal action but you have to think there's calamitous governments even in Europe.

They make decent dumplings and their dresses are sexy.
>> No. 34671 [Edit]
the qipao is based on manchu clothings so it's not actually han chinese. han chinese were cucked to the HIGH HEAVEN by the BIG MANCHU COCK that they no longer wear their traditional clothing. The MANCHU forced the han chinese to wear MANCHU clothing for 250+ years totally destroying their brain. And don't forget the pig tail queue that han chinese were forced to have. Complete and utter submission to BIG MANCHU COCK.

That is why Chinese today are subhuman scum. They've been completely BROKEN by numerous BIG NOMAD COCK that whatever shred of culture and decency is lost and the current CHINESE are soulless insectoid people with the only goal of becoming nouveau RICHE materialist PROFIT at any COST! SCAM SCAM LIE LIE CHEAT CHEAT that is all that they know now.

Maybe i'd be more receptive if you didn't rave in all caps about Manchu cock? I've been to China. I've talked with Chinese people born here and there. For their many faults, you can do a lot worse than them. At least they're half-way functional unlike Greeks, Serbs and Moldavians. I also don't care about if some specific piece of their culture comes from Hans or a nomadic war-obsessed people. A lot of your critisms of their character can be attributed to Japanese people too, which was my problem with your post.

Made in Japan > Made in China

Never in all my dealings with asiatic people have I ever been scammed or lied to more than the Chinese.

>Hans or a nomadic war-obsessed people
Odd of you to single out nomadic people as war-obsessed. If anyone knows a shred of Chinese history then they should know that Chinese were very obsessed with conquering and warring against other asiatic people living in mainland china. All of the past chinese empire can't grow big without conquering others.

>viking larping fags
Nice assumption faggot. Nowhere in my post did I mention anything remotely close to suggest that.

What assumption? What are you assuming I was insinuating? Crazy people always think everything has a double meaning. So paranoid and jittery. Let me spell it out nice and clear for you: Chinese people are not the worst of the worst. Them being collectivist or "insect-like" or having been invaded a lot has nothing to do with their greedy and dishonest behavior.
>> No. 34678 [Edit]
Oh yes! Just IGNORE all the countless CHINESE expansion across ASIA killing local natives! MONGOLS THOUGH! Don't forget that the Chinese also lead numerous campaigns into Mongolia long before the Mongols united the tribes. They tried to pacify Mongolia but failed.

The chinesse embassy already told Spain those weren't approved tests, and this has happened like three times already, I don't think they are at fault here. It seems a matter of corruption, incompetence or both, as usual.

Yes, I dislike viking larping fags. Insectoids are better than them. Your absolute hate boner for the Chinese is silly. They did this and they did that nothing they did was good even the stuff that seems okay is proof that they're evil by nature because big cocks and emperor wife hoarding or whatever. *yawn*

Amerimemes. These are decent nations. Your previous complaints about the Balkans being dirty have been noted. Curiously none of these supposedly "unhygienic" places are notorious for being a hotbed for deadly diseases. Unlike China.
Another fun fact about Moldova: it doesn't have a booming holocaust industry. Unlike China.

>vendetta against Moldova
I am Moldavian. Both of my parents grew up in Chișinău(their captial). I've visted my grandmother there. Streets covered in bird shit, their national library, the one in their capital city, doesn't have soap in the bathrooms. I've also been to Beijing, walked around in it for hours, even some back alleys. I know somebody who's been to some of China's smaller cities. I can say without a shadow of a doubt, Moldova is the far worse shit hole and has a government that's shamelessly corrupt and incompetent in its own right.
>> No. 34713 [Edit]
>doesn't have soap in the bathrooms

These are some pretty serious accusations anon
Have you tried contacting the UN about it?
I think we have and open-and-shut Geneva code violation here
>> No. 34714 [Edit]
I know far more about the place than you do and am a better judge of whether it's "decent" or not. I'd like to see you try living there.
>> No. 34715 [Edit]
Look anon im gonna stop posting because the admin and im guessing the other posters here,dont like that shit.I have travelled all over the world including the balkans and asia.Moldova is a poor country allright , but you cant seriously suggest that China is some hot shit.You saw Beijing and got blinded by the new skyscrapers and the money flowing everywhere but thats not the case everywhere.There are regions in china,both along the coastal cities and inland that make the balkans look like utopia.
The other poster that started sperging about the chinese was rude but he had a point.While eurocucks and burgers have mountains of legislation and health regulations,because they know the dangers,the chinese in the name of competition have literally disregarded everything, and now they, along with everybody else are reaping the rewards.
There are very serious reasons for implementing such measures at the expense of productivity and profit, but not for the chinese.No,gotta make that cash man,gotta be competitive.Guess what,now its time to pay the extra cost for that cheap price tag.
I m not gonna blame everybody there,because i have met a lot of chinese that were actually bros and pretty decent, but guess what: it doesnt matter.Their opinions are irrelevant.
Now as far the corruption charges go, are you even serious?Do you even know what is going on there?
They poisoned their own children for some quick cash ffs.
Seems to me like you took a walk in the capital,everything seemed perfect and then you went ahead and started bashing everyone and calling other countries shitholes because they dont sacrifice everything for quick profit.
Chill out a little and try to be a tiny bit more objective.Dont idolize them so much.
>> No. 34716 [Edit]
>The other poster that started sperging about the chinese
That's the only thing I had a problem with. I don't idiolize the Chinese by any means and what I saw in Beijing was far from perfect. I could go on and on about all thing things I dislike about them and their government, but I don't see the point and I don't think they need to be genocided or that wearing Manchu dresses melted their brains. I can't understand how a person can seriously write that kind of stuff. As for Moldova, I just used them as an example based on my personal knowledge of their ineptitude.
