Why are people so concerned about daily life effects due to COVID-19 far in the future (5+ years)? We’ll certainly get a vaccine by 2022 at latest and it should take no more than 1-2 years to roll it out to all.

Because you see numerous reports of people who caught covid, didn't die, but have permanent and chronic damage to their organs(lungs) which they'll suffer for the rest of their lives. Also the virus is new and we don't know much about it and potential mutations once it infects someone. What if it mutates into a strain where the current vaccine in development is completely ineffective against it? Then we start the vaccine timeline again as more people get sick. It's better to be cautious given not knowing what we don't know about the virus. Hence the importance of reducing infection rates as much as possible even before the vaccine is available(and hopefully eradicate it before it potentially mutates into something we can't control even more).


How can you call it permanent? It hasn't even been a year you can't possibly extrapolate so much that you determine that something is irreversably changed forever with less than half a year of data.

"Certainly" LMAO! Only two things are "certain" - death and taxes.


Taxes are not certain for everyone


Generous use of “certainly.” I have no idea what the timeline is but even after vaccination lifestyles will remain changed


They’re on track to for sure have 6-7 vaccines in 2021. Plenty more could be in 2021 as well depending on results. 2022 is only if every single one fails as well as the dozens in development that are on track for 2022. Lifestyles will bounce back for the most part imo.

I was hired out of my MBA to a firm that has now pushed my start date out 90 days twice since Covid. Am I doomed? Are any consulting firms are hiring right now?


Umm I'm a prostitute?? My now ex believed he deserved sex when he gave me covid and stayed with me to take care of me, so apparently I owed him sex? I refused because for obvious reasons...I wasn't feeling well and wtf am I doing with a boy who throws a tantrum when not getting sex. Lol so all this - I think I might have been a prostitue this whole time.....


I’m a first time dog owner, got a covid puppy, and would appreciate some advice around what to do with my dog, if I have to return to the office 3 days a week. I imagine I’ll be gone for about 9 hours. Do people just pay the $20-30 for a dog walker in Toronto? Isn’t that a lot of money? My dog’s breed doesn’t actually need much walking but he definitely would get bored by himself for so long. I am so torn, between taking a work from home 4/5 days job vs intense hybrid corporate work.


A random thought about covid - before everyone jumps down my throat I’m not saying this is how it should be just curious as to your opinion (see comments)


If anyone thinks Coronavirus situation isn't at least in part politically motivated is lying to themselves. How can you tell? Look what conservative states are doing vs liberal.


Lol to the person who posted the picture comparing hairdressers resuming work to people illegally crossing the border. Comparing COVID to the Flu is ludicrous and apples to oranges but comparing breaking a law to violating a mandate (although in their example Texas is open) isn’t apples and oranges when it fits their narrative apparently 🤨


Matched with a guy in NY through an app, we hv been doing video chats a lot and we are very attracted to each other and like each other too. When do you think is the safest earliest time we can meet given COVID?

In Georgia. Going out to eat tomorrow. Worth risking Covid so I don’t have to clean the dishes after dinner.


Given the presidents comments in the debate and the constant violations of the Hatch act that likely increased the risk of him catching COVID (ie all those maskless people on the lawn)...why should the American tax payers foot his medical bills now. This seems like something he should be paying OOP due to his recklessness


I'm shocked by how many smart people on here emphasize the wrong things in preventing the spread of COVID. It doesn't matter if a place looks clean and feels safe. Clorox wipes and gloves do not help much. The issue is how much time you spend close to other people, especially indoors, whether or not you are wearing masks (and, if so, N95 or surgical) and the air exchange rate. It isn't "safe" to eat indoors at a restaurant because it looks clean and the staff bleach the tables.


So, I‘ve been chatting with a girl for a few months since this whole COVID thing started. She’s really cool and we get along great. Last week we met up in person and ended up “having fun”. The only thing is she basically has no boobs. Just nipples on her chest. I couldn’t tell before because we had only vchatted, but now I don’t know if I can get over it. I like big boobs. Should I tough it out and try and get over it, or just move on to another girl?

How do you handle aggressive, hard-ass leadership? I was on a group strategy call and our VP says "OK *account manager* (me), we have decided that your new focus needs to be electronics, do you understand that?" He said it in a very stern tone of voice. Well of course I understand it because it was my f*cking idea that I brought to his attention prior to Christmas. IMO, this guy does nothing. He steals the ideas of his team members and then acts like tyrant in front of people.
