Finally everything has been shut

down, a bit late, but better late than never I suppose. Should have happened two or three weeks back, the Chinese gave us time and showed how it should have been down, and basically we have wasted that extra time we had by being complacent, and thinking it would never happen to us. When they did it, we should have done it immediately. Never mind, cannot turn the clock back.

Next will be the army on the streets, I suspect, to enforce the shut down, and to manage the delivery of essential services around the country. It is getting to a critical stage now, even during the war, not everything was shut down. Pretty obvious our Government know what is now coming down the line with the measures they have taken in the last couple of days. How it will all end, nobody really knows.

Just have to follow the guidelines, stay indoors, keep yourselves occupied. This could go on for the long run. No short term solution to this crisis. Hopefully after a few weeks, people will get into a routine of not ransacking supermarkets, and will start to behave sensible. Not to sure about that one. Human nature is of greed, and looking after number one, so won`t hold my breath on that happening.

Stay Safe everybody.

I dont think army will be needed if the shops are closed. People wont be gathering in masses for the fun of it.
The streets are relatively clear. As long as the supermarkets keep open there shouldn't be issues.

The danger is if there is a food shortage that the government haven't mentioned.

Alls positive so far.

Dafuq is this

Do you know how much the eastern parts of the world are laughing at this toilet paper situation right now?

Absolutely hilarious.

Let me know when last you wiped your ass after a no2 and pulled out an absolutely clean piece of tissue.

Use flowing water.. It's a much more efficient, cheaper and cleaner method.

Nah that hand held bidet is crap. If you squeeze it's going to draw water back in too.

Just use a large capacity loda/ jug/

Me and my family are currently in self isolation because my son has some basic symptoms. I suspect he just has a slight cold but his school sent him home yesterday and his younger brother too. Meant me and the wife are working from home for the next 2 weeks which I wanted to avoid.

We can't get out to go shopping and online there are no slots whatsoever. I'm generally worried how we will eat for 2 weeks. We haven't bulk bought and therefore now in a situation where there is nothing left. They should look at those stuck indoors and help somehow.

Where do you live? i can go and get you basic food out to you?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Appreciate the offer mate but I do have some people I can rely on. I guess my main point is that I can't do my own online shop.
