    This shutdown is getting to me.

    Normally Iím quite stoic about whatís happening in the world, but today for the first time since all this covid shyte started itís really starting to get to me.

    The long hours spent on my own doesnít bother me much, itís how I choose to live life usually, but every now and then even I need a change of pace and now Iím not allowed to, and wonít be for the foreseeable future.

    Yes the pubs are due to re-open here later this year (August, maybe earlier) but even then there must be social distancing and no-one will be allowed to sit at the bar. What fucking use is that? How the hell are you meant to relax and have conversation and banter with friends when you have to sit at distant tables? Are we meant to shout at each other just to be heard? With every other fucker in the pub able to overhear your conversations? You may as well take out an ad in the local newspaper! This just isnít how the bar scene works.

    And I believe that is what some people want. They want to step on the notion of guys getting together and relaxing for an hour or two just shooting the breeze. When weíre in the pub we escape their direct control and they canít be having that. Itís been building steadily here for years and now theyíve found a way to legally enforce it. Theyíre cunts pure and simple, out and out controlling fascist cunts and I hate each and every one of them.

    O.K. maybe the pubs being closed is my particular beef, but what of the thousands, indeed millions of people that are being denied the opportunity to earn a living?

    And what about the fact that the businesses that are allowed to open are being handicapped to such an extent that they have to look for new ways to retain their customers: do it all online! And if you do come into the store you should pay by card, not cash because cash is dirty. And when you do this you provide Big Brother with yet another opportunity to collect all sorts of data on your comings and goings and even your spending habits.

    But sure isnít it nice to able to sit at home and get everything you want delivered to your door? Assholes!

    As for the media, yes theyíll occasionally allow a dissenting voice through but only to shut it down with claims of ďYou have to protect people, there are lives on the line donít you know!Ē More shyte! We all know there are lives on the line Ė OUR LIVES Ė but many of us would rather take the risk than live under the yolk of an over-controlling regime.

    Unfortunately though the great majority of us are the sheeple weíve all come to know, only too willing to fall in line and accept the bullshit thatís being fed to them from TPTB. And when itís all done and dusted theyíll be the same fucktards sitting around wondering where all their freedoms and liberties went. Fucking idiots the lot of them.

    I hear it all the time in the few conversations Iím now allowed to have with people: ďAh well ya know like, itís really serious and we all have to do our bit.Ē and ďSure all this social distancing makes sense like, you have to stop this deadly pandemic somehow.Ē

    BOLLOX!

    At best social distancing and isolation will slow the spread and Iím not even sure of that. IT WILL NOT AND CANNOT STOP IT IN ITS TRACKS. Thatís just another illusion being spread by Ö everyone it seems. Have these fuckers no ability to reason whatsoever? Controlling the spread of Covid? Itís controlling all right, controlling all of us so we canít get together to reason things out and form any sort of protest. Sure we can go online and view our opinions, but thatís only the talk of the few rabble rousers that are always trying to cause a ruckus. Ignore them.

    Our liberties are being stripped from us more and more, on a daily basis it seems, and Iím sick and tired of the lot of it. And nobody seems to care. Well actually some of us care, but we get shot down at every turn by numbnut fuckwits that donít or canít see whatís happening right under their very noses, and by those with a vested interest.

    Hey, hereís a good idea, letís get everyone to put an app on their phone so we can track the effects of this virus. What? Really? Just how the fuck is that going to help against a virus? All it is is a means of tracking your movements and who you interact with. Big Brother is watching you!

    Or hereís another one, letís get everyone to wear a wristlet to the same effect. What? Are we all felons now out on parole that need to have our movements tracked and controlled? Bastard cunting control freak shitheads the lot of them!

    But worst of all are those that do see at least some of whatís happening but take the attitude ďWell what can you do, itís just the way things are?Ē

    What can you do? What can you do? How about calling out all this shyte for what it really is; use your fucking head for once in your pussy whipped ass life.

    Bastards and cunts the lot of Ďem.

    Rant over.

    Anyways, itís time to put the nose bag on and have another vodka.

    Shit, I seem to have drunk the lot of it. Now whereís that bottle of cheap plonk I was given a while backÖ

    Re: This shutdown is getting to me.

    Great rant, and I feel the same way. I've been sitting at home for almost a decade now, unable to attend even the slighest social gathering (like a birthday, or hanging out with friends), so I personally don't care that I can't do that right now, but I DO care about all those poor bastards who are now FORCED to sit at home, unable to have fun with their mates whenever they want, because ordinary folk act like the fucking Gestapo when they see crowds constisting of more than 3-4 people and call the fucking police on them!

    Bars? Gone (atleast now). Clubbing? Gone. Chilling in the park with your mates? Gone. Swimming pools? Theme parks? All things fun are locked down, but all things annoying may continue on and it fucking pisses me off. I hope the situation will return to "normal" soon, for if this will drag on far long than anticipated, I don't think any of the good stuff might come back. Or if it will, just like you described: staying 6 feet from eachother and shouting intimate conversations so others can overhear and maybe even report.

    Fuck it. It's Saturday, I'm going to shower and then open a bottle of rum. Here's to you, Jackoff!

    At the moment, I'm too stoned to give a shit about anything. Now with Covid-19, I have a legitimate excuse for bogarting the joint all to myself! Before the pandemic I looked stingy.

    Prohibition in the USA was engineered by preachers and women, and the main goal of it was to stamp out saloon culture.

    Yes, mate. The goal of social distancing is to reduce the rate of spread so that the health system is not overwhelmed. Personally, I think it's been too successful. There is one active case in my town of 250k, and about 249k people who are still vulnerable because they haven't been exposed to it. There's a couple of european countries that have not closed down. There's social distancing to slow the spread, but an acceptance of the inevitable fact that everyone will get it eventually and a lot of those people are going to die.

    Re: This shutdown is getting to me.

    I never thought I'd be happy about living in South Carolina. I think Strom Thurman was the re-incarnation of John C. Calhoun. Now we have Lindsay Graham. Say what you will, he's a vast improvement over South Carolina's past. Here, we are living the quarantine correctly, I suppose. Tomorrow some restaurants will re-open for indoor fine dining as long as county restrictions are observed. Fuck the rest of the country. Still, living in a house with my family is hard enough without quarantine restrictions. At least now I can resume finding an apartment of my own. If you think I deserve a fancy house with a lawn to mow...why do you think I need a yard and property taxes to pay? I'm looking forward and the clock is slow...at least that's how it feels to me.

    Ah, The Avengers, such a classic. But yes, Babylon 5 is old. 1990's I think, that's over 20 years ago and in T.V. terms that's old.

    But the things it portrays are very relevant to today. Government over-reach and media mis-information couldn't be more relevant. I would prescribe it to all blue-pillers that haven't a clue, especially season 4. It's an eye-opener for those that are on the fence.

    I am a loner by nature so the shut down doesn't bother me. Fuck bars and clubs. Nothing but over priced drinks and wannabe fake machoism and female ass kissing. Why don't you buy some booze for your house and invite some buddies over? I don't drink anymore but I invited some buddies over to drink and we had a great time. Broke out the PS2 and played multiplayer WWE Smackdown Vs RAW 2006. We played GM mode in the game and had a blast. It was fun creating our own shows. We all then chipped in for dinner. Days where memories are made.

    What you say is so true. But when I think about hitting the pub I'm talking about sitting at the bar with the other bar-flies chatting about the affairs of the day and talking shyte much as you would with the mates you've invited round to your gaff. (I'm in my 50's) Wymminz have got nothing to do with it.

    And these guys are people I know from being in the pub. Often I don't have their numbers and even if I did they would think it strange if I was suddenly to give them a call.

    The interaction is spontaneous, if they're there then they're there and if they aren't then they aren't. It's never arranged, we just turn up individually whenever we want and that's part of what makes it interesting. You just don't know who you'll end up chatting to.

    But yes, the drink is over priced.

    I see what you are saying. Back in my drinking days, I use to go out for happy hours. It was fun talking & learning from the older guys. They took me under their wings cause I was a young guy. I was 20% MGTOW in those days but they helped set me down the right path. I actually made a promise to myself because of them. The stories they would tell about marriage & kids blew my mind. Granted I was married & going through shit but always thought the old NAWALT. The pussy still had power over me. It wasen't until I went though my own separation, divorce, and watched how people turned on me for no reason. It was then that I took their advice to heart. The Five Finger Death Punch song "I apologize" is my tribute to them. Every fucking word.

    It wouldn't be weird if you got their numbers & called them. We live in the social media age. Sometimes the best phone calls to bar buddies turn out to be the best. It's nice to get out & socialize.

    You don't seem to be the type to get happy. You seem more of the "Mel Gibson" type of drinker. Get a few in you then start ranting about government conspiracies while using all types of slurs.

    The only thing you got right was slurs, yea, I've gotten out of some shit with the cops in spite my slurred speech, glassy eyes, and relaxed demeanor, other times, not so lucky...

    Better to be the life of the party, than the death of the party, as long as you don't kill yourself!

    I used up all my luck, that's why I stopped drinking and partying and driving fast, and women, and lots of other shit! I stopped at the edge of luck's CLIFF!

    I'd still get smashed with you either way. You sound like a pisser. We'd probably have many stories to tell.

    Ya mean stories like the time I slammed a tree in a Ford F-250 Ranger doing 50 mph, on a fire road at night, and we thought we breathed our last? But luckily, my lucky luck was with us and the tree was severely rotted, exploded before our eyes, stories like that?
