Crazy Days

There is no doubt there... with all things happening I have concerns for the global economy but with myself and fiance both working in essential industries there really is nothing for me to worry about.. at least I hope... I would even bet that my Skip The Dishes job will pick right up as restaurants will want to close their doors while remaining running 😉

So, this week has been a write off and it looks like there is at least another month to go of FUD flinging panic purchasing consumerism. At work right now things have gone nuts...

Seriously With The Announcement Justin Trudeau Made

Overnight things went from normally slow in days previous to twice what we have seen all through the peaks of holiday sales. The fear and panic is real, the issue is not supply but only hands being able to get those supplies onto shelves. Yes, we are seeing unprecedented intervention for this virus outbreak but this is only surprising because we have never seen preventative measures put in place as they cannot nor have ever tried to stop the flu. Coronavirus is nothing new, this strain is and in that lies the concerns for our safety as we have not the antibodies to deal with it and reinfection remains a possibility...

I Still Wonder Why Such Fear 🤔

Stupid shit but not the end of the world...

As Smokers we are in the high risk category, some will argue that smoking weed does not place you there but I argue only if your using a high quality vaporizer hat does not damage your lungs.

That being said, we should take all measures to protect ourselves including but not limited to what has been pushed all over the media 😅 some things I would suggest going forward would be

  • Not sharing joints / pipes / bongs / lighters (easily spread with anything put to face)
  • Treat all packages as contaminated ( this virus can survive 9-days outside the body so better safe then sorry )
  • Don't smoke near people just in case you cough ( fear IMO will be the most destructive aspect of this outbreak )

Ultimately I suggest preparing for what happens when you do get infected, this will be the most likely outcome over time. Eventually you will be infected by this virus but the question will be how long from now and will we have a treatment developed for it... I assume it will just get lumped into the cold/flu season illnesses we will forever have to watch out for...

So What Do We Do Once Infected?

Self Quarantine, seems kind of ridiculous to me when the illness does not present symptoms till much after the point of becoming contagious but that is what their plan is to slow down the spread. I see everything that is happening as just a reaction to the fear and possible outcomes this will have for our global economy, I lean towards the perpetuated mindset. We have been long overdue for a retraction in the financial space, some bubbles need to pop to support the cluster. Could this not be the perfect opportunity to do so? Now I am not saying this illness is not real, I am merely stating that business will always take...

Advantage Of An Opportunity

Did you notice the record breaking coincidences?

As for myself, I will be taking the opportunity to enjoy myself no matter what! We have prepared as best we can and both the fiance and I have ready access to food through work. The only concern that remains is distractions while stuck in doors...

In the few days leading up to the announcement for Canada, my fiance Melissa, completed the puzzle we received from @TecnosGirl as Roach Prize 😅 she finished it right before my eyes in a matter of minutes. Had I known it would be so quick for her I would have recorded a video and made it into a time-lapse, always next time she puts it together. Most of what we have for distractions rely on internet or at the very least power, I don't suspect either to cut out but we have prepared just in case.

We grabbed the card games from the camping supplies and pulled the board games out of storage. Have plenty of paper and pens/pencils and candles for light. Charged every last battery I could find including the Portable Karaoke Machine, never know when I might feel like screaming at people from the balcony 😅. Plenty of books and magazines around to read...

The only real complication I will be experiencing is having to be obsessive with washing hands each time I have to go outside to smoke a joint... may be an excuse to cut back for a bit but I won't be going with out my green LOL I did just pickup 6 OZ the other week for my upcoming vacation but who knows if that is happening now 😉 either way we are set for 2 months.

Till Next Time Smokers....

Has The Idea Of Being A Witness Crossed Your Mind?
For me it started as a desire to learn if I could do it.

Maybe It's Time To Run That Idea Out?

Things seem to be calming down here in Ontario. Groceries are back in stock.... as long as everyone just buys their regular groceries we will be ok. It’s the crazy hoarding that causes the panic.

·

Yea the hoarding definitely started the panic but I do believe that the response to the hoarding is what blew the panic way out of proportion.... that whole monkey see monkey do and fear based decision making are the reasons why we don't see live reports about protests like we used to.

First time in history since we have had world wide communication that the entire world has come to a stand still. Like how this last STEEMing situation was the first time people seemed to unite for the benefit of all we are seeing corporations and governments and the people join forces to stop the spread of this virus. The fact this is a first for taking precautionary measures like this on a global scale shows to me there is more going on then just a virus outbreak in the same way there was much more going on then just the sale of Steemit Inc.

The fear may have started with the TP and such but I figure this will evolve into much, much more on a financial scale... just look at all the CEO's that resigned leading up to this 🤔 then stocks dump....

The real concerns are the things from China we are dependent on that will kill people forced to go without. Medications, nearly all of them for various diseases required to sustain life will soon run out of supply. I see signals of the beginning of a cleansing looking from a larger perspective, lets line all the ducks up...

Fear, Reaction, Solution

  • CEO's - record breaking resignations in all industries, last times this happened was just before recessions in 02 & 08 - how they know could just be speculation on the "emotions" of the markets
  • Virus - causes initial fears and may have been the signal for an opportunity to sell out and pop some bubbles taking profit when buying back in
  • Media - hypes the fear surrounding pandemic distracting and naturally suppressing any financial messages being spoken
  • Stocks - tanked and 3 times in one day the entire space was locked down meanwhile barely reported on as everyone is talking about the virus
  • Restrictions - As fears mount with social distancing occurring creating a situation of unrest we see things like protests in france as we are social beings and require some level of physical interactions
  • Lockdowns - some places have escalated to fining anyone caught out without their protective wear and jailed if showing symptoms when out even with protective wear.

As we watch this unfold I would look out for any proposed solutions given to us, even this social distancing IMO is a joke as like every other virus it will make its way through the majority of the population over time.... next we will see martial law and the people will be ones asking for it 🤦‍♂️

I wonder if this was Kim Jong Un’s Christmas Surprise ?

·

·

I don't think we can point the finger at any one entity, they all seem to be playing their parts but I am uncertain if it is perpetuated or if just happens to follow a trend.... signals for a recession have been happening for about 2 years now so it is due time in a sense of patterns.

as for the virus, humans wish we could make something as destructive as Corona but only nature can really make things that beautifully complex.... it made us did it not?

You make real good points and i agree with you!

Thanks buddy 😎

I just wish I didn't feel the need to make these points... why do so many refuse to look at the larger picture before falling into the game of fear based controls 🤦‍♂️

Here is hoping this will be what pushes them into the beginning of that long awaited awakening people have been talking about in the spiritual communities 🤞

I started telling everyone I am out that has been calling me just in case, at least till my reup comes through.

·

Yea, I would take precautions at that... the whole social distancing thing and assuming anything I am handed is infected just in case specially money since yea never know who's hands and when it last traveled... 9 days outside the human body is enough time to travel across country given the right circumstances.
