I do have work about to come in, thankfully, my purse strings are more than strapped.

Good luck UK.
Well, I’m applying for an NHS administrative post tonight. Fingers crossed there’s not much competition for it. Between you and me, I don’t recognise Corona as a thing. I don’t know anyone who has it or who has died from it. I’m prepared to eat my words if circumstances change but happy to be ignorant because it generates positivity. I’m also prepared to adapt to a less materialistic life and let the chips fall where they may, but also wouldn’t mind working and having money in so I can decorate my flat buy clothes etc etc fuk it.

Re: Everyone has been super pissy in the past week.

I'm having a pissy week because of the recent FM transit with (moon) sat on my natal venus. Whilst at the same time transit venus was sitting on my natal moon triggering my moon square Saturn aspect. Venus is my time lord this year too so this transit was going to produce something.

This caused me to out of the blue break up with my (now ex) bf, we also had on this date the Mars/Uranus square which caused me to do it out of the blue.

I honestly feel like the planets puppets at times, with no control over my actions. I do believe that what is written for us is written, there is no getting away from it.

Yeah that's the thing, a lot of people may see us as heartless when nothing could be further from the truth. I consider myself to be a very empathetic person, you know, one of those who cries if I am in the company of someone else who is crying. I try to tell my family but they don't listen so I let them be. I think it's just best to share it with those who you believe may be open to hearing what you have to say, but if you know someone won't have a bar of it, then no need to bring up the topic. Can't win everyone over, and nor should you. You only waste your own energy. Everyone's on their journey, and maybe they have to go through it to finally see it, as frustrating as it is when they refuse to see that you mean well.

I don't want to scare anyone with any information, I just want to try and get to the bottom of things. Tbh I can't say for sure if the virus is a bioweapon or is non-existent; I've heard arguments on both sides and some days I think it's made up and other days I think "maaaaybe it is a real virus?", but one thing I can say for sure is that I definitely smell a rat. We're definitely being duped in more ways than one and there's no doubt about that in my mind. There are way too many inconsistencies, between the media portraying hospitals as overburdened with patients and yet ordinary everyday people all over the world filming these hospitals and reporting them as pretty quiet. Doctors are also coming out confessing that they are being pushed to declare the reason for a person's death being covid-19 even if the person doesn't actually have it. So whether or not covid-19 is for real, the numbers are definitely being overinflated to strike fear. And there are other inconsistencies but I don't feel like listing them all. To me the biggest thing that indicates that we're being taken for a ride is because the reaction to this virus was ramped up too quickly too much. Way way too much. We've never reacted to another illness like this throughout history, so why is this one suddenly so special? It's no more or less deadly than any other one.

There is a lot of city workers working, cutting down trees, and in the sewers.

Yeah, I don't know if it's just my imagination or cause there are less vehicles than usual on the road, but I also noticed quite a few police cars each time I go out. They drive past and I look at them thinking "Are you going to stop me for being outside?" but for now all they do is just drive past. I don't even know what they're looking for. Maybe groups of 3 or more people?

That is so bizarre regarding drains and streets being iced over. I didn't even know about that. I don't understand why that's happening. Trees being cut down could be to make way for 5g, but sewers??? I forgot, do you live in the UK too?

Re: Everyone has been super pissy in the past week.

Conspiracy theories are rampant, these days, chiamaria,, and totally unhelpful.

COVID-19 is afflicting most countries these days, or will soon. Some hospitals are overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients, but the disease has not spread to every place. My region is pretty quiet. But not New York City, New Orleans, or Chicago. It's basic epidemiology.

Some countries have had much better records of controlling the disease than others. Usually it's due to quick action.

If anything, the numbers are under-represented, because inflected people may not yet know they are carriers and likely to become ill.

If you read up on the history of epidemics, you might start with the great influenza epidemic of 1918-19 ("Spanish flu") or the Black Death (bubonic plague) of 1347-50 in which a quarter of Europe's population died. Native Americans were decimated by European diseases against which they had no immunity, like small pox.

Just because people sequestering at home have extra time on their hands doesn't mean that conspiracy theories are helpful ways to spend it.

Re: Everyone has been super pissy in the past week.

We all should be cautious before promoting conspiracy theories about something as critical as COVID-19. I mean, we're not talking about Hillary Clinton's body count or the CIA monitoring you through your dental fillings here.

If gullible people blow off CV-19 thinking it's just a conspiracy theory, and don't take protective measures outside: more people with catch it, sicken, and die. It's that simple.

Even attractive conspiracy theories need to be compared with basic textbook epidemiology about how diseases spread.

However, for those of you who do enjoy a good conspiracy theory now and then, try this one from the MSM, which actually seems to be for real:

The formula “mainstream means reliable” is no longer true. Mainstream sources have unreliably reported plenty of scary things to support a certain narrative. Like, only virus deaths matter.

Problem is Waybread, things are going to change. Today, there is talk from Justin Trudeau, Canada's Prime Minister, about the revival of the Emergency Act of 1988. It used to be called the War Measures Act. Renamed in 1988. It has only been used in the first and second world wars, and by Pierre Trudeau I do believe, during the October FLQ Crisis in Montreal. This isn't Conspiracy stuff. This is our Prime Minister. Put into plain English, it would be known as Martial Law. The government will be able to do whatever they want. There will probably be curfews, and shortages. I am not making this up, it is in Justin's daily address. He plans to put it before Cabinet, he has already spoken with the Premiers of each Province and territory.

I didn't say it was reliable

I've not seen any media say that only cv-19 deaths matter.

Re: Everyone has been super pissy in the past week.

Thanks, Opal. Here's a bit on the Emergencies Act of 1988:

https://thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/e...mergencies-act

Trudeau has a minority government at present, thankfully.

I went to the Emergency Act and read it. I believe covid is real, it is an influenza strain. Gullible is not what most would infer of me.

Things are going to be changed.

Should cut down on high school shootings though. Maybe bullying too.
