This isn't the Titanic. I think I can manage waiting a little extra.

Quote from: Shiranu on January 31, 2020, 04:42:55 PMActually his point was that it will hit a vulnerable Chinese workforce and market, meaning production should start to head back State-side and perhaps let us re-establish ourselves as the dominant market.The problem is American policies for awhile now, despite all of Trump's talk about how he is bringing us back, have not really set us up to capitalize on China's weakness. Unless we really bust our asses off as a nation and start putting the working class in a stronger position... but I doubt that will happen any time soon unless Bernie wins.

Quote from: Hydra009 on January 31, 2020, 05:54:02 PMThe number of cases jumped from just shy of 10,000 yesterday to 11,300 right now. The numbers outside China seem to be similarly climbing. A lot of new countries on the tally, which is really worrying. I thought this could stay relatively contained, but it looks like it's going to be a global phenonemon.Get plenty of sleep and wash your hands regularly, everyone!
