As long as you get a daily paper, you’ll never run out of toilet paper. The phone book also works, if you have one. Sears catalogs were long a favorite, but they are hard to find these days.

It was found to be fake.
It sounded very plausible but some investigated, and most of the alleged sources did not make the statements.
Fooled me though, but that isn't hard these days!!

I have never seen such infantile panic....even at the turn of the century, it wasn't as ridiculous as this.

And germs can be on your gloves, so you could still be spreading

TV is filled with elderly people who cling to the past and unable to adapt to rapidly changing conditions in this coronavirus world
The president declared this a national emergency because this is much more dangerous than the flu and TV is very vulnerable because of the age of people here and their inability to adapt to a brave new world we live in

Heck, the Spanish Springs and Fiesta Bowling Centers are still open. Can’t think of a worse place to be with hundreds of not so young bowlers in very close spaces. Leagues still going with the only option to not show up or forfeit.

Default Nitrile gloves are cheap

Why not wear surgical gloves if you are so concerned? A box of 100 is less than $10 last time I checked. Keep your filthy nasties to yoursel, and keep away from everyone else’s viri and bacteria.
