Well, that’s it then.
The Irish gubmint has gone into full blown panic mode.
With their typical strange logic, they can panic while telling the rest us to stay calm. They are of course following the lead of the WHO who announced that this is now a pandemic, followed by a plea for people not to panic. They then go on about the number of deaths but tell us not to panic. They then announce that they are worried that young people aren’t panicking enough. They should make up their minds.
Anyhows all our schools, colleges, universities and a moxy load of other institutions are to shut down from today [but don’t panic]. People are being asked to work from home and not travel [but don’t panic]. All indoor events with more than 100 attendees are banned [but don’t panic]. All outdoor events with more than 500 attendees are banned [but don’t panic].
Of course some twats are in full blown panic mode and the toilet-roll virus is now widespread throughout the land along with bread, flour, rice and a few other items. I actually do need some groceries [my fortnightly delivery] but discovered that one outlet has all its delivery slots booked out until next Tuesday. I tried another outlet but their site had crashed presumably from overuse.
Having been down to the village to stock up on real essentials [pipe baccy] I got home to hear that libraries will be closed too.
I finished my last library book last night.
I have nothing to read for the next two or three weeks.
Now I’m starting to panic.
The Airplane movie panic scene comes to mind.

Sorry to rain on your comedy parade here, but I have to tell you this is a little more serious. There is no such thing as a "virus" in the first place and this is ALL a terrible hoax. They have made it all up to GET you to panic and it seems to be working just fine for all the gubmints. The real problem here is that they are pulling out all the stops to engage their one world order. This is it! You are witnessing the rise of the antiChrist beast system. I have loved your blog for a long time and really appreciate all your posts. Your posts will be one thing that I will miss in the next world I am soon to be going into.
Welcome Anita! Well, speaking personally they have failed. I am no longer panicking as I found a 1,000 page book I haven't read in years so my sleep is guaranteed for weeks to come.
Seriously though, you have to admire their attention to detail? To somehow misinform every reporter around the planet and plant "survivors" and "sufferers" who are interviewed on television is quite a feat? I think a more likely scenario is that a new 'flu virus is doing the rounds and is causing a mass hysteria that's aided and abetted by social media.
And don't worry – if you are going to the next world, the chances are you'll find me there too.
I'm actually counting on it. See you shortly!
The WHO announce a pandemic, and the other, more useful Who, The Who have cancelled their concerts; Roger Daltrey, 76, and Pete Townshend, 74, were due to start their WHO 2020 tour on Monday at Manchester Arena but the 10-date run has been postponed due to fears about the pandemic.
And maybe because they are in the YOU WILL DIE age group !!
Whatever happened to "Hope I die before I get old"?
That's back when they were, "Talking 'bout MY generation". Now 2 or 3 generations later, they don't feel quite the same.
Well, I know I don't need to link the Kindle store here, YOU MUST be aware, you tech-savvy curmudgeon. I can only assume the reticence to look at that possibility is some kind of grumbly Irish Grandad thing? I have about ten months of reading stored on my laptop, phone and actual Kindle reader, and they all sync to one another.
We're in quarantine and I lost my job yesterday because of 'the new world order rising up,' and oh yeah, THAT LADY IS FUCKING NUTS.
Don't @ me, hoax lady, you're a nut.
Of course I'm familiar with the Kindle idea. I just don't like the idea of them. I like the feel of a book. I like turning the pages and the whole physical exercise. I could download e-books onto the laptop here and have done so in the past but it just isn't the same.
Sorry about the job [I did read about it over at your place]. The world is in a state of chassis, as they say here.
I figured as much. And I get it. Me too, to a degree, but we're also in a place where physical books are cumbersome and take up a helluva lot of room in a helluva tiny place, that we may not be able to live in for much longer anyway, see below…
Sorry about my terse attitude with the lady above, but I have little… scratch that… ZERO tolerance for deniers when I've just lost my job because of the so-called 'hoax,' and my wife with chronic health issues is under quarantine and at high-risk of making me a widower within the next couple of months. But that's the last I'll mention it over here in Ireland, I'll leave any other opinions on it over at my place.
You need an ebook reader.
And project gutenberg.
Ah! See my reply to DW above!
I'm so disgusted about this Covid-19 crap I can't even leave a comment. I going out to find a crowd of people to stand in.
You just left a comment to say "I can't even leave a comment." Grandad is rubbing off on you, Kirk.
I can't possibly comment on that.
Neither can I.
Could this possibly be the start of a "trend"?
On the fun side of it, the more we comment in this sub-thread, the tinier the windows get.
