    The State of New Mexico just issued a statement prohibiting gatherings of more than 100 people.

    Does that mean all the Walmart, Costco, sams, pizza huts, etc will have to close? Or limit customers?

    Here is their definition: "Mass gathering" means any public or private gathering that brings together one hundred (100) or more individuals in a single room or connected space in close proximity to one another, such as an auditorium, stadium, arena, large conference room, meeting hall, theaters, or any other confined indoor or outdoor space, but does not include normal operations at airports, on other forms of transit, shopping malls, or other spaces where 100 or more individuals may be in transit. "Mass gathering" does not include family gatherings such as weddings or funerals, shelters, retail stores or grocery stores, typical office environments, businesses, courthouses, restaurants and bars, correctional and detention facilities, schools and educational institutions, hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and other health care and congregate care facilities, and places of worship operating during "normal business hours."

    So no, it's basically just targeting special events. But I wonder if that will change.

    I just had a play that I was supposed to go to get cancelled. The Chicago Symphony hasn't cancelled yet, but I suspect that will be next.

    So over the top.... nobody talks that the situation is under control in China? Numbers of cases stabilized .... 3 weeks ago.

    Winter is phasing out. So much drama for so little, on a global perspective.

    That was interesting. Still didn't answer the question of why toilet paper. This is not a new thing as those of us who live in the frozen north know well.

    I just figure it's one of those things that separates us from the animals. :D I think somebody else mentioned that early on in the thread... it's the mark of civilized society. ;)
    Where do bidets fall on the civilisation continuum? I'm thinking bidet > toilet paper > newspaper > corncobs (but really, isn't anything beyond poison oak/ivy/sumac greater than a corncob??)

    I want the things they have at the hospital for after you give birth (water wands?)! Is that similar to how a bidet works?

    Corncobs baffle me... who first looked at those and thought, "You know what that would be good for?" :D

    Our governor just announced that public events with more than 1,000 people, including all major sporting events, have been cancelled through May 1, and he also urged organizers to call off private and public gatherings of more than 250 people.

    As noted above, this seemed to be happening already.
