I'm completely terrified to survive in this world, right now it seems like surviving is the tragedy. People talk about not being afraid to die, but it seems like it's right to be afraid to live. I know I'm going to, don't want to live The Grapes Of Wrath.

Both of my parents grew up in the Depression and were less than 10 YO in '29. Then was the Dust Bowl 5-7 years later. Not only were people poor, there was also a shortage of food staples. By the time of Pearl Harbor, my father was working at Colt Firearms over a year, and my mother was working at Peck&Peck NYC.

We'll get by, we have been resourceful. The big question is today, do we have the courage to suffer as they did. I have found we are certainly no better, and in fact afraid to be without. Addiction IS a terrible thing socially.

One other unusual item to note is that in the Wuhan district, people that have been social-distanced for quite some time are feeling some unease and/or mistrust of getting back to casual living.

Nice post Suited89. I think the problem with a depression now, we are nobody, no power as a country,

One stock I bought today was Coke(Ko). It was downgraded I saw, I'll hold that one. It was a little impulsive, yes it was. Just didn't make sense to not buy it, it's not Woolworth or Kmart, big brand. We stocked up.

If I were to say, I think everyone is irrational, then be rational. Ace2 is right, I'm not playing. I want to so bad though, so therefore I'm greedy.

What does that mean ?
Itís all about making that GTA

Do we have the courage to stay home watching tv for a few weeks? I certainly hope so.
In Spain and Italy, people have started going to their windows at 8PM each night and serenading each other and applauding the medical people.
Even if you are isolated, you are not alone.

Few weeks? That's very optimistic of you. I think I'm prepared for 4 to 6 months, then again, I'm not really sure I know what 5 months of food and essentials look like.

I sure hope a 4 pack of toilet paper last that long.

I donít know what the first sign of return to normalcy will be, or when it will be. But I have a feeling sports wonít be near the beginning. Activities that are social-distancing friendly will probably be first. Shopping at the mall for ex.

Will shaking hands ever be commonplace again ? Even if/when we are down to zero infected people.

I personally have never touched elevator buttons with my hand, or public handrails , or handles on doors into and out of public places. I use my arm or elbow or a napkin. I think more people will take that approach permanently. Recently Iíve even waited until someone was coming out of a store and then jumped in while the door was still closing.

I guess casinos will always have slot machines lined up like sardines whereby youíre sitting a few feet from the guy playing next to you. But thatís probably not healthy either.

Will the same large number of people who went to gyms before all return and trust that type of place? They can step up cleaning , but they canít disinfect every dumbbell, treadmill, and jump rope everytime someone new uses one.
