    I want to say this will be helped by the government, and it could be, but i don't know if it will.

    They're considering a bill to suspend any evictions for tenants who can't pay rent due to the virus here and can prove that,
    Which morally I'm not opposed to. But as a landlord? Whose going to pay my bills? Property tax is due in three weeks. Insurance needs to be paid monthly. And there's that mortgage. Oh, and I'm sure my tenants like using water and want me to keep paying that bill. If CA suspends evictions they better give some money to landlords to stop their places from going into foreclosure.

    Ok, so, we know this is what immunizations are? And how they're developed? Every single day humans all over this nation make money being test subjects. This is not new or a conspiracy!! I had a tenant who used to make tons of money being a test subject.

    Wasting time, I stumbled upon this:
    To allow for natural language understanding, Snips devised a way to train its AI without keeping records of what users are saying. When developers want to add new skills, Snips can hire humans though services like Amazon Mechanical Turk to generate thousands of sample spoken commands, which it uses to train the AI. Hindi says this method allows for 90% accuracy without collecting any user data.

    For $7k? If it includes lab quarantine for 2-3weeks + food/stable internet connection... I'm young and healthy enough to very probably withstand it... I'd consider it.

    Guys. Let's not spread scientifically false information here. Controlled medical experiments happen daily. What they will do to get a vaccine for this is no different. And it's not like they're injecting folks with HIV. This is a virus. I get dead viruses injected into me yearly.

    Please. There's enough fear right now, let's not make it worse.

    I think it's mostly been a snowball effect. A few people started hoarding it, some people saw that and thought it was a good idea, now people are panicking that they won't be able to get it because everyone else is buying it all and trying to buy as much as they can. Just fear all around.
