    The game theory is very simple:

    Option 1: Stock up on food and supplies you normally use. If pandemic occurs, you are prepared for the short to medium term and can stay indoors. If pandemic doesn't occur, you consume the products like usual.

    Option 2: Believe this is a hoax. If pandemic occurs, you will be waiting in long lines with big crowds. You increase your chance of infection and may not get needed supplies. If pandemic doesn't occur, you can yell "told you so" to everyone.

    I'm leaning towards option 1.


    Also this is not confirmed but interesting read. http://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/245593795 Basically if you catch coronavirius you will have it forever.(Think of herpes or HPV, outbreaks occur when your immune system is down)


    Also, 1 in 4 cases with the coronavirius develop pneumonia. It requires serious manpower and treatment, including intubation to assist with breathing. Most people survive it. But Whats going to happen if everyone becomes infected and there is not enough doctors to help people that need intubation? I dont think you can use logic of how how more people die in car crashes everyday// The majority of serious car crash victims are saved because of rapid intervention by health care specialists. What would happen if instead of 10 serious car crashes in a day there were 100,000 that require intubation?

    I lost zero dollars in 2008. I kept buying with every single paycheck.

    I would think 3M would be a good buy. It's still trading relatively low and I can't help but think they are going to make bank on virus masks. I'm honestly surprised they aren't already trading higher.

    no clue bro, I’m dumb as cum when it comes to this magic money market. So, switching jobs I was giving the option to roll what little I had in the employers retirement plan thing. This was when GM and Chrysler took government bailouts. So I thought I’d throw the 4K I had into Ford stocks..... lol.

    Again, I suck at stock market game. I’d like to take classes on understanding it so I could play too.

    I don’t think the virus is the threat provided you’re an otherwise healthy person. The threat is people acting like idiots.

    Just like snow storms in the southern states. It’s still just snow like up north but the idiot drivers make it more dangerous.

    you convinced me to at least order some masks for the family with N95 filters. They wont arrive for a month but I dont think stuff will go down hill that fast.
