Holy Crap. We're flying to the UK March 1st.

Could have gone end of spring or summer. March?

Would be alright sort of backpacking as it generally entails cold weather, with its own beauty.

Re: Questions about what a worldwide shutdown will do
If I planned a trip. I might book into somewhere like centre parks for outdoor sports like archery, zip wires etc. Then hire car and visit castles where you would pass vilages and pubs. Then even at 40 or even 50 ( maybe 60 )
Go to Brighton. Have a dance ( nothing too mental ) Some might even do shrooms or something the next day whilst sitting in a garden. Then sleep in a hotel. A city resturant. The train to Gatwick.

Maybe forget the shroom part and dancing but the rest could be good.

I say centre parks but dont even know what its about. Just see an advert with zip wires.

Forests though. Painballing in the rain. Quading. Visiting castles in the winter.

Anyone have questions that don't quite fit into an existing thread?


I have questions. I'll start.

If most people can't go to work, will they all wind up homeless because they can't afford their rent/mortgage? Is there a forgiveness policy here? A grace period?

Yes, Precious Little Sweetheart. We forgive you.

 There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory mentioned, which states that this has already happened.

Can you look the big picture?

People not working, means no maintenance in gas, water and electric grid, plus communications.

People not working, means no police, no FD, no ambulances. Actually its possible that even trying to call 911 on a cell phone may not work.

People not working, means no goods delivered to grocery stores, no gasoline in the pumps and no parts to fix stuff.

If your worst worry is your mortgage, be cool, probably banks will just crumble into their own mess. A period of VERY BAD SHIT will go on for like a few weeks, maybe a few months. The survivors, will rejoice.

I've always hated these companies that give out an award to employees who never miss work. I know the one guy that won one year had come in sick and caused others to miss work because he was a "come in or die trying" kind of guy. Does that need to be rewarded?

And my church last weekend gave an award to kids who had NEVER missed church school. I mean, what little kid has control over not getting sick? I thought that was just cruel and idiotic. So...yeah, these are the people that will come in anyway to kiss the boss's butt and spread the illness and the boss will STILL give him the employee of the year award!

My prediction is that there will be chaos, which will include an economic collapse.

Less chaos where people are sharing, kind-hearted and decent. More chaos where people are selfish and self-serving.

Food, water, safety, medicine, services and housing may all be issues. Government and banking may even be shut down, at least temporarily.

I'd suggest stocking up on some food and water, have some cash handy, and network with trusted family and friends.

You're putting a lot of good people in a bad box. I know the stereotypes and I understand where they come from. Still, there are a lot of good people and a lot of bad people all over, regardless of race, religion, etc. No one I know personally has ever been placed in some super awesome club. I'm willing to bet you don't personally know any either. Keep that in mind.

Re: Questions about what a worldwide shutdown will do
A worldwide shutdown was all laid out in episode 1 of the walking dead.

You walk out of the hospital, everything is abandoned. Cars, buildings, gas stations, stores all abandoned and empty.

You sit there for a moment wondering wtf And some little black kid smacks you in the head with a shovel.

Re: Questions about what a worldwide shutdown will do
I think in a national crisis there could be hardship exceptions. If not, expect evictions and foreclosures to start in the city.

If you live out in rural areas, they have to find you first. Some places you can't even see from the road, or find the road.

Then when you arrive, potential gun ownership by residents. Also for some of the older and less glamorous dwellings...what's there to gain?

There are places around here that have been on the market 6 yrs without one bite.
