    But what came first, the bat or the egg from where a reptile came then evolved into a therapsid and later became a bat?

    PS: the egg!!! It was the egg!!! Eggs carry the Corona virus!!!

    Lol, I just ordered a cable that's going to be shipped from Shenzhen. I don't really expect it to arrive any sooner than April. But yeah, I don't care about that wannabe flu as much as the media are overhyping it. I don't wanna say it's harmless, but it sure isn't as deadly as a normal flu.

    I wouldn't really venture saying it's better or worse than the flu, but I really doubt there's any chance you could get sick from a cable.... unless someone sick spit on the cable, put it in Express SR71 air delivery and you have a fetish for licking new just arrived cables.

    This is stupid. I bought an EZFlash Jr. and can't wait for it to arrive, coronadingus affects people, not products.

    I would be more worried of a dengue mosquito entering the house when I receive the package than of corona, but that's me.

    I already have. I don't buy directly from China, I buy from people who have the item in the US, who bought the item from China.

    Yes, It's highly unlikely that it'd survive on a surface for that long but you can never be too careful.

    Except you can. Now the world will probably survive without cheap tat for a while but even in the field of germs and other microbial forms of life (or possibly not quite life in the case of viruses) we are seeing the clueless and needlessly paranoid dodge vaccinations, bleach their house 9 times a week and annihilate their lungs, not expose their kids to anything and them be sickly allergic things, create a nice line in antibiotic resistant germs, waste tonnes and tonnes of food and medicine and the list goes on.

    Let's see... two kidneys, a liver, 1500cc of AB-negative blood and three Wuhan post order brides. While all you pussies chicken out over potential hazards, I'm living the good life! I mean: sure, world health is an important thing, but a 90% discount weighs just a slight bit more.:tpi:


    Ahem...serious answer: I barely buy anything from China in the first place. But granted: if the GPD Win max would release tomorrow, I'm not holding back (okay: I'd hold back if there were a "next day delivery" option, but that's about it).
