QuoteVietnam, which was under Chinese occupation centuries ago and contests Beijingâ€™s sweeping maritime claims in the South China Sea, has particularly fraught relations with China.But it is not alone in the region.Over 60% of respondents to a poll of Southeast Asian officials, academics and other professionals said in a survey this month that they distrusted China. Nearly 40% said they thought China was â€œa revisionist power and intends to turn Southeast Asia into its sphere of influenceâ€. The survey did not mention the virus.

Quote from: Taaroa on January 30, 2020, 11:35:46 PMThe concern is appreciated, but I'm not in Sydney.I think Australia's population is really on edge over this virus even if it's not really spoken out loud. People saying that they're avoiding parts of the city known for large Chinese populations, constant reports in the media about suspected cases, and people wearing masks out on the street.

Quote from: Asuka Langley on January 31, 2020, 12:19:18 AMCan we all admit this is not a happening and it's over? There have been white people get this and survive it without medical attention. It seems to only be effecting Asians and only killing old people with preexisting medical conditions. This was just another fake and gay happening and I'm glad i didn't waste muh sheckles panic buying Bakker Buckets and Tangy Tangerine.
Quote from: K_Dubb on January 31, 2020, 12:03:56 AMAs much as I appreciate the attempt to lend a local flavor to the metaphor I have to protest: a dragon is not a beast of burden. While a camel humping straw must have been an occasional sight in certain areas of the globe (and I suspect it reflects a Western taste for Oriental or faux-Oriental proverbs, like Confucius say and Sun Tzu, and further why a camel and not the ass which was more usual in those parts?) a rice-hauling dragon is a new one on me. I can think of a lot better use for one that proved biddable.I think the Chinese have always had so many people that the use of draft animals was superfluous, and maybe it is simple unfamiliarity that produces this ungainly image. I suppose the rice to be in large baskets rather than sacks, if it can be added by the grain, perhaps one on each side. Didn't Chinese dragons fly? You would have rice everywhere, even if you could persuade one to schlep it for you.

Now we got inbound Wuhan Death raids:https://twitter.com/wildgooseLIVE/status/1223032620482732034Plus dudes trying to plug epidemiological models into a spreadsheet. I've never followed one of these kind of things closely before. Jesus. Is it always like this?

When I go to his channel in Youtube, my anti-virus kicks in and tries to keep the contagion out. What if it got thru? I'm scared Bellgab.

Quote from: albrecht on January 31, 2020, 11:37:13 PMOften I ignore "new" news and just revisit old Art programs, and others, and when I feel like Nero put on an old Phil Hendrie and laugh as it burns. Guest transporting a monkey "as a favor, to make ends meet" -or something- who got sick due to "contact." "Contact" evolved as bit goes on. During first Ebola scare. Amazing. Nurse call ins. Story develops. Angry callers about public safety. But trucker worried about "guvmint quarantining him" and, later, "embarassment."
