We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

No, they can't and now is not the time to lecture people about it.

Rich or middle class people who can't budget property? I ain't gonna hear it.
Both of my cars are paid off, I only rent because I don't want to buy a house in Independence and I'm trying to let my high school age kids finish school in the district they started...

For non-married, childless people like us it's a little bit easier. I will say that. Not having children saves you just a shitload of money. A shit load.

I suspect very few. I ask again - what's your point?

That one had 'dozens' and was held outside. Which makes it a hell of a lot closer in scale to a grocery store than Madison Square Garden, does it not?

I get that, in normal times. But these ain't normal times.

Yep. Estimates are somewhere in the range of $250k per kid to raise them from 0-17.

You're right. You know how much it costs a month to take care of one child? Whatever you think it is...double it.

That doesn't even factor in all the mental pain and anguish they cause as teens.

If there was 100% chance or even 50% chance that someone's breath could pass it on to you, then sure.

But, maybe it's 5% (just throwing an number out there), so coming in close contact with one person probably wouldn't matter, but being crammed inside public transportation with another few thousand people would increase your odds (perhaps not a crazy amount given the number of people who have it vs. those who don't, but still).

If I had to completely guess, I'd think there would be a higher chance of catching it than surface and then face contact, but still relatively low in the grand scheme of things on a per-contact basis.

I think my cat is expensive. Here at BWillie Exotic's Small Cat Rescue it costs me about $20 a month in food + $20 in temp cat box costs + $10 in cat litter.

What cha gotta do is feed yo kid ramen and meatloaf. Make them do yardwork so you don't have to pay your yard person. Make them clean your house so you don't have to pay a cleaning lady. Put those dwarfs to good use and make them work for you.

It's amazing how the biggest morons of DC miraculously have moronic opinions in this thread as well

That's what I was saying. You may be able to get it this way but what are the real odds? I mean if the chances are like .25% chance you get it like that well then I guess technically it can be spread that way, right?
