In Michigan we went from three cases to twelve. The Governor has shut down all schools for three weeks. All large gatherings are canceled (concerts, expos, sports... not sure about movie theaters).

The End of Days is upon us!

I’m now watching POTUS declaring a national emergency.

I just bought 60 bidets from my supplier here in the north woods, heading to the city to start scalping. $5,000.00 a pop sound about right.:jester:
We went to look at a bidet job for some lady a couple years ago. She was from somewhere in Europe, spoke English well, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. She had a handyhack install a kitchen sprayer as a bidet under the lav. I don’t remember how he made it reach or how he hooked it up, but it started leaking. We offered to fix the leak, but the kitchen sprayer bidet would no longer be hooked up.

Gave her a bid for a real bidet, but she said that where she comes from that is the way they do it. She doesn’t use TP! So anytime she needed water, she’d turn on the main, turn it off and clean up the water.

Thankfully we never heard from her again!

Well panic has set in over here, costco was overrun, a line all around the interior of the building. 1200 people waiting for the doors to open usually it's 300. The media is asking people not to buy too much and leave stuff for other people.

I seriously think I'll have to get more stuff than usual because this is starting to be a real problem.

Some schools are now closed for a minimum of 1 month. The school in front of my house was closed today but all the personnel were there while I had to break some ice all the way to the street an put a sump pump to drain the terrain as the snow melt is entering the garage.

Meanwhile, Health Canada recommends having (No mention of buying food!!!):

Pet food
Toilet paper
Facial tissue
Feminine hygiene products
Diapers (if you have children who use them)

if I couldnt buy another thing im good for about 6 months..remember when the schit hits the fan and its now survival mode, so does your eating and rationing of food from the start...so if you know what you have and how much you need to SURVIVE..not be happy...you can go long times on limited food and supplies...

So on the evening news, all schools closed a minimum of 2 weeks in the entire province, the city are shutting down everything except basic stuff like garbage pick up, water supply and waste and a few other things.

Casino shut down until further notice. Police were at each supermarket today to prevent crimes, line ups were minimum one hour. The government issued a statement there will be food on the shelves tomorrow, there no shortages but supposedly no more pasta or rice, all gone and toilet paper is all gone too.

So I'm heading out now at 8pm to see if there's anything left because tomorrow I bet the line ups will be hours and hours long .

Good luck Tango!

Ottawa has been pretty insane. Guess people are preparing to not go out and stay home for a while now that govt office workers are all working from home. I think it will be good for business though. Start of the year was really slow!

It's official it's gone out of hand the supermarket looked almost like a warzone, I saw a woman with rubber gloves and I saw a guy taking the same pictures as me of the emptyness, a couple walked by murmuring "this is ridiculous".

Vegetables were almost all gone, no tomatoes, no lettuce of any kind, maybe 2-3 bags of potatoes left. I was able to find some abandoned carts because a lot of people got tired of waiting in line so they left their cart in the isles, meat and perishables left in their abandoned cart all day.

I rummaged through a few carts and I was able to scrounge some tomatoes and 1 lettuce. I doubt it's going to be possible to refill the shelves overnight there's too much stuff gone if there's anything left in the back store that is. Tomorrow I think people are going to panic even more, those who only have the weekend to do groceries, when they see the only things left are mustard and candy.


This is only from a single day of frenziness!!!!!

Bread 98% gone, all that's left are hamburger buns and a few loaves of fancy bread (pics #1-2)
Meat 95% gone (pic #3)
Flour none left, well only 2 tiny bags left
Pasta 99% gone(pic #4)
Ramen noodles, kraft dinner almost all gone
Canned pasta sauce 98% gone
Canned tuna 85% gone
Toilet paper and paper towel or anything paper, nothing left, not a single roll..(pic #5)

I'm not afraid of the virus I'm afraid of what may happen with the government scaring the population by closing everything down and the crazies who are going to act up. I'm starting to regret not getting firearms.

Real americans schit in a hole in the ground and wipe with tree leaves! Then they go do a rain dance to wash the poo away that missed the hole!



You want to use tree pulp and porcelain? Go back to the country your race is from!!


Have you never seen a properly installed bidet/hand sprayer attachment for next to a toilet? We have nursing homes around here that have had them for at least 70 years. I have worked on porcelain bidets older than you and probably your father.



If you had schit on any other part of your body would you just wipe with paper until it looked clean? Yet this is okay for the area right behind your cock and balls that gets wrapped in layers of clothing and sweats?



Maybe be a little less racist and a little more hygienic.

this will be the most important thing to stock up on, if this was a real world emergency, not the hype one the media is pushing, but a real end of times as we know it, some of the MUST have items are firearms and ammo......it will be the only thing worth bartering with and if you want to protect yourself and survive you need them...
