  1. There's no place to exercise anymore. Gyms are all closed. Indeed, any public place with workout equipment is closed. Sure, I can still walk, run, and do push-ups, but these just don't work as well in my experience.
  2. My main is worry is catching the virus and then passing it on to someone vulnerable, perhaps handing them a death sentence. As I see it, that's currently the main problem: The virus is transmitted easily enough to infect most of the population, which would doom those in the susceptible class with weakened immune systems, preexisting conditions and the like. In my area, almost everything is closed -- restaurants, bars, theaters, libraries, gyms, schools, etc. Businesses are telling people to work from home. The lack of hustle and bustle on the streets makes it seem like a holiday or snowstorm every day.
  3. Same thing here, though I'm a bit older, which makes it even tougher. At some point in life, it seems most people's circles of friends and family are firmly set and hard to change. At 27, though, you've got plenty of time, in my estimation. There are all sorts of online support groups, including chat in this forum and others (though I'm not sure how active it is here). I guess we can't include links here, but one support group is in the Second Life virtual world (yes, it's still around :-). It's called Survivors of Su i cide. They have regular meetings a couple times a week or more, some with voice, not just text. I used to be a regular, but have drifted away a bit. As on this forum, there are some good people there willing to help.
  4. Is your name Wi-Fi? Because I'm feeling a connection. (Not a joke per se, but a joke of a pick-up line.)
  5. Vertically Perforated Toilet Paper
  6. That's a familiar feeling to me as well. I'm afraid I'm short on solutions, though maybe it helps to know that others are in the same boat. Not that I'd want anyone to stay in that boat. One other thing that helps a bit is along the lines of @legacy6364's comment regarding meaning and purpose. Maybe there's something we could do to help this world and others living in it, as trite as that sounds. Many say that their children are their life in this context, though that's inapplicable to me (probably will never happen). In any case, I have hope that something will come along, even if this grows dimmer with each day.
  7. I'm sort of thinking along the same lines. Instead of a house, another possibility is to buy a good RV or camper and just hit the road. At least this could work if you have nothing keeping you in one place, such as family responsibilities or medical conditions. Still, it's nice to have a fixed residence as well. A cheap home or cabin somewhere in the wilderness (or close by) would be my suggestion (and possibly a plan for me, too). I'm afraid I can't help much with making friends, as I don't really have many at all. My experience is that "it just happens." It can't be forced; people just have to be on the same wavelength somehow.
  8. "Keyboard not detected. Press any key to continue." And I thought that was just an urban legend... 😂
  9. Coffee that tasted like burned plastic, courtesy of coffee machine at work.
  10. I think this forum should be safe on that front... or at least I would hope no one here would deliberately make you suffer more when it's already bad enough. Those kinds of episodes hit me hard as well. They do pass eventually, but it's tough to predict when. If it's been bad since Christmas, it would normally start to lighten up a little in my case. I hope the same happens for you... other than that, I'm afraid I'm short on any real solutions, which I could definitely use as well.
  11. Agreed -- I didn't know him well, but his posts helped me even while he was helping others. So sorry to hear about his passing... wish I could have given him some thanks for all he did.
  12. If going to the future doesn't work out, that would've been my choice as well, at least if I had been a single child. I'm not sure about robbing my siblings of their lives, but then I suppose no one would've been the wiser if none of us existed. I'm also wondering whether anyone here feels resentment towards their parents because they did get together. Of course, it's not their fault, but it's hard to be unselfish and reasonable about this.
  13. It's from Atlantis, but SG1 and SGU also have their own independent takes on the idea. (I replied with a video clip from Atlantis, but the post was marked as "Hidden" for some reason, so I've no idea if anyone but me is able to see it.)
  14. The Alternate Reality Drive itself is from Atlantis. Here's one clip: [video removed] Stargate Atlantis - Alternate Reality Drive & Alternate Daedalus (S5E4) [Admiral Titan Channel, YouTube] Independently, the same concept is used in some SG1 and SGU episodes as well. Strangely enough, most of the alternate realities tend to be worse, but I suppose it wouldn't be good for the plot if the characters wanted to stay instead of doing their best to get back to their own.
  15. Yes, and there's also the idea of alternative presents, as in parallel universes. These might actually be real, given current physics theory (there are experiments planned to test this out). Somehow that idea is helpful, mainly in the sense that maybe we're just living in the wrong timeline. There could well be alternate timelines where we're free of the problems plaguing us in this one. (If you've watched the Stargate series, you might have seen the episode(s) with the Alternate Reality Drive. We could definitely use it here, even if only to appreciate what's possible.)
