    Coronavirus COVID Excitement Thread

    Check out this neat map:

    Deaths in S. Korea, Iran, and Italy last weekend, spiking the worst stock market drop since the recession. You probably noticed. If not, it's in full blown correction territory (10+ percent drop).

    Also, they named the virus after me! You just got Covi'd. Mother effer.

    We have 4 people going to a show in Vegas next week. The show is still going on, but 3 of the biggest booths pulled out and a few of our suppliers are cancelling their plans to attend. A bunch of the automotive companies have now closed their facilities to visitors for anything other than emergency needs.

    This shit is getting real fast.

    Now, Disney makes a good chunk of their money from their parks. 2 of them are currently closed due to the virus (Hong Kong and Shanghai). The virus is now in California and Florida, as well as Europe. I think I'm gonna buy some puts on Disney going down in the next month. Feels pretty damned safe a bet at this point.

    I was going to be presenting at a conference here in San Diego this May, and that conference just got cancelled.

    I'm not too upset. \_(ツ)_/

    My travel next week got cancelled, and I was told I can (should...) work from home the rest of the month.

    Where is this weird bitch sitting? Did somebody kidnap her and force her to televise a Coronavirus prayer?
