    Just figured since a bunch of us are 'sheltered in place', it might be fun to have a thread about conspiracy theories about this virus.

    I'll start.

    Note: If you want to be serious about your theories, go right ahead. But don't take mine seriously.. I am doing this for fun, nothing else.


    The virus was made by the Russians.

    They planted it in Wuhan because of the lab there. They knew the Chinese would be blamed.

    The Russians have the least to lose, and the most to gain, from the worldwide economy being hit by this.



    By the way... Ever since Trump said at that podium... "Because it comes from Chi-na"... That has become it's official name, as far as I am concerned. LOL

    Well this should probably be posted in the refinery lol

    I heard a conspiracy theory saying it's a bio weapon from China targeted to get back at Trump. That post said something about Russia having advance warning about the virus and zero casualties. I call BS on that though.

    I don't think it really is an engineered bio weapon, but it REALLY wouldn't surprise me being everything that's been happening politically with the impeachment and gun control and everything. "state of emergency" opens up a lot of political loopholes for them to exploit.

    Taking it seriously... I really don't think that this was man-made. And certainly not FOR all the reasons people have been postulating.

    But there is plenty of evidence that many people are trying to take advantage of it. For... pretty much the same reasons that people think it was created FOR in the first place...

    No conspiracy... just a recipe gone wrong.

    I wish that was the case with me. I "used" to work from home 2 or 3 days a week. As of last Tuesday my office went 100% remote. I process payroll for over 40 client companies in 4 states. Trying to keep track of state, city and now federal sick leave, get the federal plans set up, the employees entered (all manual process), process the payrolls, modify delivery of checks etc along with user acceptance testing of our new platform...I have more work than I can manage. Especially trying to do it with 5 people in the house hogging wi-fi!

    1.2 million Chinese cell phones are no longer connected as if the owner died. Makes you wonder how accurate the numbers they reported for casualties are..
