My ex wife was ranting about the latest season of American Horror Story and I jokingly said something and she responded by stating, as a matter of fact, that Eisenhower negotiated a treaty with Aliens so that in exchange for 5,000 citizens each year, we get peace with Aliens. She’s also anti-vax despite having been hospitalized for 4 days with COVID. I’m speaking to a lawyer this week, but am I unreasonable to think this thinking and behavior is grounds to modify our custody agreement?
So the county I live in and the surrounding 3 counties have a total of 120 deaths from COVID. Yet we are still on full lockdown. I really don’t think a blanket lockdown is the best method.
Would anyone buy a restaurant? There's a decent restaurant near where I live selling for what appears to be a pretty low price (assuming due to COVID). I'm really tempted to give it a go, and I have the finances to "weather the storm" until vaccines are out. I would of course go over their books before moving forward, just curious if anyone's had a positive experience?
If COVID has taught me anything, it’s that I don’t trust anyone to keep me safe. Especially some of you losers in the bowl who don’t have a brain and refuse to believe this virus is real
Really need advice/opinions. My close friends are having their wedding the day of my son’s 1st birthday (poor planning & lack of consideration on their part). I could move the bday to the following wk but I’m 1) hurt they didn’t ask if we could make it if we’re in the wedding party 2) already canceled our gender reveal, babymoon & baby shower last yr due to covid & this is the ONE thing i was looking forward to now that we’re vaccinated. Moms what would you do? How would you feel about this?

Can you get back Virgin Atlantic miles spent on booking a reward delta international flight if you cancel the flight due to coronavirus?
I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?
🐠 who got Covid, do you know how you got it? Can you please share what you did that exposed you to someone with an infection.
What would happen if we don’t provide covid vaccine record during onboarding ? Is everybody required to be vaccinated ? Can I just not provide vaccine record and still be ok ?
During Covid I lived with my parents a few months after living alone for 5 years (distance 3h by plane). I realized that not only I love living alone, I dont see myself at all marrying or having kids. I like to do to my things the way I like, to eat when/what I want to etc. That's it! I know I might turn to be a older and lonely man, but that's how I see my future.
How do coronavirus symptoms start? My mom is having trouble breathing today and we're don't want to assume that's what is it? Not sure if we should go to the emergency room or wait it out.
I quit my job after COVID and took a hiatus from working. I'm applying to new jobs now, how do I explain the gap in my resume?

Is it possible Fauci is lying to us about needing a “cure” when he already acknowledged we had one for SARS / novel coronavirus back in 2005?

Need an advice, even though I’m an HR. So, I’m unemployed at the moment and want to start looking for a new job. I negotiated my way out for several reasons 1) My boss was not comfortable doing diversity initiative insisting that all lives matter and we’re meritocracy based business 2) I was responsible for 33 countries, which was very demanding in a time of Covid, as I had to be on most crisis committees directly or as as oversight, and at the same time I have a child on spectrum, and with the
