At least you go to hell (or heaven) with a wiped ass...
Yeah, your Mother always said as you were leaving the house "make sure you have clean underwear in case you're in an accident" :)

On the plus side, (if any) one can take the time to double-check all your counter storage systems to make
sure every counter is where it is supposed to be for post-COVID 19 tourneys.

Here in America I've seen at least one report of a fight over toilet paper in a store.

Looks like our weekly meetings at local game stores here in southern California are now on hiatus :(
There was a good punch up in Australia that made it to my YouTube feed as well.

Hand sanitizer is also on the hoarders' lists.

I don't understand the craze over toilet paper.
A couple in Canada got called out for buying up sani-wipes in bulk, and then selling them on amazon at a steep mark-up. Amazon pulled their account.

In war time, that kind of speculation is called "profiteering" and is illegal.

I suspect the two idiots will have a garage full of sani-wipes and no way to liquidate them.

Also had a couple in Canada fill up their grocery carts with every piece of meat on the shelves. That one was harder to understand. All the dining rooms are closed, restaurants are doing take-out only.

Same here. You can still get take out and no one is going to starve. They are working up a big stimulus package of maybe 1,000 - 2,000 per person, twice to keep people afloat until the worst has passed. I think it is a good idea but I also think that this will last until August.

I am stocked up on food and such into early next month.

Woke up and took a snapshot

Wonder how the server held up with all that.

My Tues quest for TP came up box cars, no access after 4 Giant/Martin's, 3 Dollar stores and a Walmart. Try again tomorrow. Feels like buying bread in the USSR in the late 80s. Interesting article on TP makers:

Guess that would be a strong buy reco on GP, Kimberly Clark, et. al.

Hopefully the leaves will start growing soon on northern hemisphere deciduous trees shortly.... (Only partly tongue in cheek.)

In face to face ASL games, please include the Hand Washing DR; which is part of every Wind Change DR.

If the HW DR >= 7, both players must wash their hands.

If the HW DR <= 5, only the Moving player must wash his hands.

Finally some excitement in that first DR of every Turn, gentlemen!
