    So who reckons the sudden downturn in employment and people being put off because of the Kung Flu virus will see it all being blamed on Trump?:D

    Absolutely! DJT has been the fall guy all along, for doing too little or doing too much.

    The Swedes look like the only rational government in the northern hemisphere right now.

    Yep. Start with thousands of independently-own restaurants and bars and the companies that supply and support them; with the big restaurant chains having to shut down many of their locations. God knows what else.

    It's a good time to be in the toilet paper business.

    Be a better time to be in the drain-cleaning business when people start flushing those kleenex and paper towels!

    [​IMG] yep, people are way stupid who are trying to flushing paper towels down the toilet, when they could just bag the used paper towel in a plastic bag and throw it in the trash bin.

    Yep. The southern half of the development we live in has a sewage lagoon. Recently the waterworks manager sent out a letter about flushing paper towels, sanitary napkins, condoms, etc. It costs $100,000 per year to remove the stuff. If the situation continues each home will be required to install a grinder that costs about $1,000.

    We lucky dwellers in the north are on septic systems. Our only problem is with the ten families with the crap spraying systems, some refuse to use the chlorine pellets. Few years ago one family was repeatedly warned for spraying smelly crap, and were fined $10,000 by the EPA.

    They are a small nation state still despite some Mideast penetration. I bet the Swiss are even more rational. Nobody even pays attention to them because nobody can do Swiss.

    The Swedes' experiment will likely be a costly failure that kills a lot of citizens and healthcare workers.

    It's the same strategy initially tried with disastrous consequences as the US, Italy, Spain, and the UK among others. These nations quickly abandoned that experiment after disastrous results.

    No, on your lawn. It is quite common in areas with low percolation rates to spray the effluent on a lawn.

    No!

    It's a treatment system that uses multiple tanks, chlorine pellets and a sprinkler system to disperse the effluent onto the lawn. It's not legal in all states. Problem comes when the system chlorine pellets are exhausted. When that happens the system sprays untreated crap. One neighbor was very careless with his system until he got a warning from the EPA. Several neighbors, including myself, reported the guy.

    The hand sanitizer I’m using says “made in China”.
    A church member’s relative have died.
    Wouldn’t chlorine pellets do harm to the lawn?

    I would say you’ve never lived near a hog farm. There is nothing to compare to a hog farmer fertilizing his field with porcine feces. :eek:

    Beg to differ. For six months i lived in a motel about 500 yards from a huge chicken farm. One day they cleaned the place out and spread it on the pasture. The ammonia smell was sickening.
