I don't think that refutes my points.

Moreover: New York has seen "bodies loaded onto refrigerated morgue trucks by gurney and forklift outside overwhelmed hospitals, in full view of passing motorists." There are corpses lying in the streets in Ecuador. This is not the time to be splitting hairs about whether it's safe for people to inhale out of the same apparatus for the sake of an evening's entertainment.

Do you trust with your life that that will happen in a hygienic way? Seems dubious when highly-trained medical personnel are routinely getting infected. Not to mention that smoking a hookah typically involves more than just touching the nib -- there are other ways that an infection could be spread.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Day of mourning for coronavirus dead

For anyone who hasn't heard: in addition to being Qingming, today will also be an official national day of mourning for China's coronavirus victims.

From China Daily ( govt.chinadaily.com.cn/[...] ):

"During the commemoration, national flags will fly at half-mast across the country and in all Chinese embassies and consulates abroad, and public recreational activities will be suspended across the country.

At 10:00 am on April 4, Chinese people nationwide will observe three minutes of silence to mourn for the diseased, while air raid sirens and horns of automobiles, trains and ships will wail in grief."

I would like to suggest that foreigners conduct ourselves with an appropriate level of solemnity today, especially when in public and during the three minutes of silence. I say this in the same spirit as @colinflahive's post last month about wearing masks: www.gokunming.com/en/forums/thread/16344/wearing-masks

@sean1: The thing is that it's a weak field, so I don't really support anyone in particular enough to sing their praises. But Buttigieg (fake), Biden (senile) and Klobuchar (bully) are all just blatantly awful. I suppose I could live with Sanders, Warren or even Bloomberg, although they each have serious flaws.

As far as Pete's donor stats, yeah, a lot of people seem to have been bamboozled, which is disappointing to see. And I don't think the fact that he's the poorest candidate gives any reassurance that he won't cater to the interests that have ravaged the country over the past generation. Maybe the opposite.

Also, while I am not a huge fan of Sanders and therefore am reluctant to carry water for him, I don't think the UK results necessarily translate to the US. Corbyn was abysmally unpopular, due in large part to his humorlessness, links to violent extremists and allowing anti-Semitism to fester within his party. Sanders has none of those faults and polls as the most popular active political figure in the US. Plus Labour's traditional electorate was fractured by the all-important Brexit issue, and there is no comparably powerful wedge issue at stake in the US.

An oxymoron. MAD is bi-directional, hence the "mutual". Both sides have reduced leverage over each other under MAD, because threats to use conventional force have low credibility in light of the extreme risks involved.

Turn that smile upside down, sezuwupom. Expressing positive sentiments about fast, comfortable, affordable and environmentally-sustainable new rail connections is not allowed by the comments police. Anyone who is not sufficiently glum will be ridiculed.
