that's fine
acknowledge that negativity -- there is plenty of reason to feel down, right now

just don't let that negativity consume you
remember, there are people you can rely on, there are people who will be there to help
as mr rogers once said, always look for the helpers
they're always there

Yeah that's a good way to think about it. The worst part of this though is not knowing when I'll be able to tell that guy how I feel. I feel like it came at a terrible time and its a punishment of some sort.

Probably laid off for good.

Crossposting from the old thread because I failed a spot check and didn't see this one.

In actual serious news, it's looking like that whole "40K secret dead in Wuhan" doesn't actually match with what we've seen of how the virus transmits. The numbers might be intentionally deflated, but not to that extent.

More from Mr Trump on the situation with mask manufacturer 3M, after he said he would use the Defence Production Act to ensure masks manufactured by the company were supplied to the US.

"We're very disappointed in 3M," he says. "They can sell to others, but they should be taking care of our country."

Responding to a question about accusations that the US had committed an act of "modern piracy" by redirecting 200,000 Germany-bound masks for its own use, the president said: "There has been no act of piracy, it's the opposite.

"3M has not treated our country well, and if they do, great. If they don't, they're going to have a hell of a price to pay."


So 3M can sell to others but they can't. What the fuck?

Well of course it isn't. The whole thing is anti Chinese propaganda being spewed out by people who want to make their own failings at handling the crisis look better by pointing fingers.
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.

So the first thread lasted 62 days.
The second thread lasted 14 days.
If this trend continues, this thread will last just over 3 days. The thread after that will last about 17 hours.

Apparentlyyyyy.... I owe you $2,700! That's about £2,200 - or roughly the maximum furlough pay that HM Government is giving workers. Unless they were employed after 28th February, because fucking reasons.
