possible benefits of pandemic

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Well this is dickwad Duncans view and it hasn't changed for years. The world cannot continue to use Earths resources at the ever increasing rate that is happening now. The capitalist system and greed make it impossible to stop or even slow down our use and abuse of this planet. It would be more acceptable by people if a meteor or asteroid hit Earth and wiped out half the worlds population, than having a war or virus do it for us. That way we would have no-one to blame.
I look at it this way, Those that survive will have an opportunity to learn from our faults and start a new type of life without nuclear subs , bombs, weapons and scientists that have nothing to do but create viruses.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Still not even 10% of deaths caused by swine flu in 2009, and no lock down then...

This shit is ridiculous.

*I will add that I'm in week two of staying at home and away from sick people and a bit cranky.

Did you stay at home and away from sick people in 2009?

If not, maybe start calling yourself ridiculous?

Hopped on the ferry, straight into downtown CBD Sydney 5.30 pm. tonight.
Walked right thru town.
Maybe 2 - 300 people, i saw, in 5 k's over one hour.
Peak hour.
Maybe 10 -15% of normal road traffic.
Came back across the harbour, lovely autumn evening, sit outside, top deck.
- only one on the ferry.

Bliss. This is how a city should be.
