    I'm in supply chain, now mainly involved with computer components and it is becoming increasingly difficult to get stock, when you do find stock you guarantee you are paying through the nose of it. Lots of China is shut and Q2 is expected to be very very tough....

    My stocks and shares have gone from a 7.13% profit to 3.35% over night and they’re usually very stable, damn you Corona you’ve gone to far this time:cry:

    I have to agree with people’s suspicions, there is a reason they’re making such a big deal about a virus which kills less than the common flu. The way countries are trying to contain it you’d think it were the Black Plague yet they say 4 in 5 will only get light symptoms. Something doesn’t add up.

    I’m sure in that episode it’s ‘Osaka flu’, from Japan.

    Ha, it's not as if Spoons is going bust!

    If it was 1985, by now we might just be aware of an issue is some far flung city in China, then we'd forget about it and then it'd be over.

    These are just the developments from TODAY. There’s talk of the Olympics been cancelled, the F1 in China was cancelled. All for a virus that’s ‘less deadly than Flu’. There’s something else at play here.

    At the risk of over-reacting, I’m cashing in my pension and spending my final days on the piss in Vegas with a couple of 19 year old Russian escorts.

    Good plan! I hope for your sake, the US airports haven't been closed at that point to any foreigners to spoil your plan! :)

    Sounds good can you pay for me as well? Unfortunately my stocks have took another nose dive today so I’ll be queuing for bread next soviet style.
