BTW if anyone wants decent, non-stale coffee during lockdown, I recommend the Illy metal canned whole beans. All other packaged coffee without a roast date is nearly guaranteed to be stale. Illy cans it with slightly pressurized nitrogen which means it's acceptably decent for a very long time. It seems to go stale faster once opened than real freshly-roasted coffee beans, but it's not bad for pandemic coffee.

Looks like Brazil has decided to actively attempt to have the worst CV19 catastrophe on the planet.

Bolsonaro believes (or at least claims) that the Brazilian people have some of natural immunity and that combined with their tropical climate will make this virus skip Brazil.

My money was on India performing the worst through this, but now I am having second thoughts.

Illy is pretty good. I am all in on Nespresso Vertuo coffee and espresso. I know there are likely plenty of coffee snobs on here they can Suq Mafakkin Diq.

I still think the African continent will fare the worst.

I'm not a big Modi fan, but I do like how he apologized to the poor of India.

We started doing Illy coffee after a trip to Italy. Good stuff. We can still get fresh beans though, must be essential? :shrug:

Yeah, Brazil probably couldn't do anything anyway. Even if they locked down. Remember the stories coming out of Rio before the Olympics? It's a 3rd world country run by a moron fueled by a cult of personality. Was always hopeless unless you're one of the wealthy.

It's interesting, I really have no idea who will fare the worst. I wonder if Africa will actually do better than expected because of the very young age of the population compared to even South America.

Yeah, it has the typical Italian flavor profile. I normally don't do store-bought stuff, and it is usually a little darker of a roast than I like, but it is very drinkable.

How many rounds of golf does that $400K cover? His salary is nothing compared to the money us taxpayers are funneling into his businesses.

Yeah, like Melogna lets him touch her. She met her contractual obligations.

Are we really going to continue to perpetuate the logical fallacy that wealth implies competency?

I would think that such a rich and famous person could land himself something other than a high-end mail-order bride, though. Yes, that's offensive to her and unfair, but their relationship just gives me that vibe.

Yng's not overcharging the government For protecting him at the Mar a Lago resort. Trump is not reimbursing anybody at the local airport near Mar a Lago, it has to shut down when he visits it.
And I'm sure Yng Would release his tax returns if he were president, for transparency.

The only thing horrible about the press conference were the targeted questions against him. Such a waste of time to debate meaningless crap.

I am still not planning on voting for him, although I wouldn't vote for Biden either, but any rational person can tell he is doing a good job right now.

According to this data, death rate in USA is below 2% so far (this just includes data for known cases, actual cases could be 3-4 times as much making the death rate even more minuscule). Will the percentage rise if cases begin increasing exponentially and the system bends/breaks? Time will tell, but to this point the death rate is extremely low.

https://covidtracking.com/data/

Read another interesting piece today, they’re already tracking nine variations of this virus. Apparently it mutates very slowly, to the point where a single vaccine could be good for years and years unlike the regular flu vaccine which needs a yearly update. The good news is none of the strains are showing an increase in lethality yet either. Still waiting to read about any of this on the MSM but I doubt it will clear their doom porn filters.
