I would think China would fall under Developed Each Asia? Although I believe the World Trade Organization still considers China an underdeveloped nation and gives it a special status?
What a joke!
I'll second that. SlingLow racks are great quality, very sturdy and they look good! I've experienced no issues refueling. The design allows bungie cords to be used at any location to fit multiple shapes of cargo.
A month or so ago I read that Over a year Ago China gave mandatory vaccinations to every citizen. This year a virus originating China is taking over the world. And maybe to make it not look suspicious they could have given sugar water to some so they would die....
The question is why the need for a countrywide Mandatory vaccine....against what threat? How could they accurately predict the corona virus was going to erupt a year ahead of time and precisely pick the right vaccine strain to use on everyone? So why were they Mysteriously so prepared to fight the virus?
China has lied about it starting in China. Using the democrat play book by calling us racists for labeling it the China virus...Since then China had been Playing hero by sending supplies to virus ravaged countries.....but not the US. And they threatened to cut off our medication shipments from them and That we would be swimming in a sea of corona virus.
Since trump took office over 3 years ago he has changed trade deals with China and other countries. These deals have caused those other countries to suffer economic down turns...
It’s no secret that China has ruined our middle class and they consider us a treat to them. They know we hate commies...
China had enough time to vaccinate everyone since he came into office. It’s no secret they would live to have Biden as president since they already have him in their pocket...
No according to this article China is trying to make the United States look incompetent and appears to be shifting the blame on us. They also tried to say the US military spread the virus in China.
The W H O has been downplaying the fact that the virus originated in China.
They know the worlds economies have been decimated and are vulnerable because of the Virus sickness and economic Sickness. The oil price war isn’t helping the world....could they be in on it? Russia and Saudi Arabia...they know its killing ours and others oil businesses...by driving the prices so low. The world is overflowing with Cheap oil right now...they are running out of places to store it. There is a glut of oil.
Before the virus outbreak i predicated something big was going to happen before our election...So democrats could say look what happened on trumps watch.....I was thinking of a mass terrorist plot. This could be it but not as I imagined.
This article sorta ties all of it together....it’s a mistake for us to totally trust China. They are still commies no matter what..they hate trumps buy American hire American policy. They know Now we are going to take our businesses back...which will only further hurt their economy. They are a very mad at us country right now. Maybe they ordered North Korea to shoot those missiles to distract the news from the China virus...
Yep, I got distracted by a pretty girl. Left the cap sitting on the sling as I drove off. Had that funny feeling. Pulled over and checked. Sure enough I drove off without reinstalling the cap. Doubled back and luckily it was in the middle of the highway with no damage!
Great tip with Amold cap. I'm going to purchase and put In the storage compartment,
Never heard of Dunkel but with that deck and the view Dunkel is a great choice, enjoy!
according to the article....seeing the ship ...he snapped thinking it was there for something other than helping sick people....troubling is the fact that his job is critical to move people and or supplies. Operating suck a powerful machine comes with HugE Responsibility and mental health is critical. Supposedly he did this on his own with no preplanning...still remains to be seen.....
Many people are mentally weak, smokers, drinkers, druggies, gamblers other risk taking activities....taking this into account many people can’t handle real life....the reason for constantly getting high or drunk....it’s an escape from reality ..
The same people that are content to be entertained by the kardashions and sports like it’s life and death...
so expecting everyone to accept this New reality and react accordingly ....many are going to have a problem. Wait until the UFOs land...LOL
that said I’ve been in financial distress during lay offs and strikes....I saw many divorces during these times....women hate being poor...
this isn’t just one company on strike or lay-off this is an entire country on shut down....9/11 was just a pimple compared to this....closet thing in my generation...that changed the country.....this is rearranging the country....lots of normal things have become abnormal....we’re going to exit This into a new normal...The next 30 days is going to be A real eye opener for people with mental problems...it’s going to be hard on normal people...
Time will tell and it will be a short time. I think the older generations have been hardened with the ability to focus on a direction to achieve an outcome. In the computer age its different.
Wow!!! The engineer of this train reminds me of Bigdog
As BigDog like to say - "Everything is a conspiracy"
Wow, what if it were loaded with passengers? Did anyone anticipate this erratic behavior? If so why were they afraid to step up and protect? So much lost. The potential for much more lose was there. Tragic.
it has nothing to do with the mode of transportation...it’s where you go and what you do when you get there. And why it was necessary.
CDC originally told people not to wear masks so they wouldn’t horde them. They wanted them to be available for first responders.
But now ....
the fact that they even brought it up, serious Concerns must have Been Raised.
I’ll be wearing mine in public from now on....if the virus is as contagious as they are saying...it’s not worth not wearing one....CDC or not...
Might be a good idea to wear a mask. A word of awareness as I have worn the N95 type mask during processes that last from 8 to as mush as 24 hours cumulative time (grinding and fitting turbine wheels). You will become uncomfortable in longer periods and its natural to adjust for comfort, perspiration, itch, water vapor, etc.
I think it's the message trying to be conveyed as in the article. At the end it states the possibility of risk increase if the mask is contaminated and touched. An added danger if the mask is worn without a proper seal or a person is constantly adjusting not realizing they are touching the face. It's something the average person may not think about or even a quick natural reaction. Something to think about.
just saw this afternoon that an MIT study shows that droplets carrying Coronavirus can travel up to 27 feet in the air
I saw that too. Doctor on White House briefing today said the golden rule is 6 feet. So if you are in the slingshot travelling at 70 mph what is a safe distance and would the dispersion rate change the equation? Would a +5 windscreen mitigate?
The president just said it’s a matter of life and death....
if the weather was warmer I’d be using my SS to go to the store...would I be tempted to extend that trip....hell ya....will I be good...I hope so..And when I go into a store I’ll be wearing my Face mask...
What if every Time a person goes out thinking I’ll be ok to joy ride or jog or walk or play basketball...what if that turns into a person that dies? That didn’t have to or maybe wouldn’t have even gotten sick?
It comes down to this.....do you want to be a part of the solution and Help keep the death rate as low as possible or do you want blood on your hands for maybe a million or two..Dead will you be ok with that on your head?
At this point I haven't heard anyone inform that a ride to the grocery store in a car, slingshot or motorcycle is increasing the chance of transmission through the chosen mode. Although anything is possible no matter what precautions, in theory if you sneeze and someone is following to close behind something could happen. But the far greater danger would be at the grocery store.
Totally different than a baseball or basketball game which involve close physical contact. To my knowledge a jog or walk within the proper space guideline carries no additional danger. AGAIN WITHIN THE GUIDELINES.
From my observations the risk is not in the ride itself or the mode of travel but in adding another destination point (which very often a joy ride may result in}. What if I use my truck for transportation to the grocery store and travel with six people in close contact, Would that make for a greater danger than a single person in a slingshot? In other words the danger is the close contact and the risk of others at the destination who have been there without following the guidelines.
It's not an issue of "blood on your Hands" to go to the grocery store and pick up food for survival. Implying that I should feel guilty for going to the grocery store and having blood on my hands for that is just a bit over the top. Its appears your not applying a distinction between a trip to the grocery store vs. a basketball game or party. I did just see coverage of a large group of people gathering for a birthday for young child. That is a danger.
And yes if it is deemed unsafe to travel in an open air vehicle I will gladly comply. Haven't seen any indicators or concerns on that issue. In fact a ride in a car or SUV to the grocery store may contain several people with very close contact. Not good! So in some instances using the slingshot would be a better option?
Again I agree with the majority of your statement but have seen nothing implying the use of a motorcycle, slingshot or other open vehicle increases the danger.
so are you the only employee at work or are there others around you?
it’s about keeping away from others that could have it and not be showing symptoms yet.
stay home order means stay home...unless you have a valid reason to be out....it doesn’t include joy riding or other nonessential activities....
this isn’t about you.....it’s about 350 million other people that don’t want to get sick and die...
how hard is that to comprehend? The experts have warned there could end up being 100,000 -200,000 or more deaths if everyone follows the rules
if not that number could go over 2 million....dead.
So what sounds better and more important...some a holes joy ride or 2 million dead...which it could turn out that it will be someone you know or a relative...
just because you are working in an Essential business doesn’t exempt you from getting sick...it means your odds of getting sick and taking it home is even higher...Personally I wouldn’t be happy right now if I had to go to work. I’m glad I’m off and staying home. If wanted to get sick I Would go joyride around the hospital...
the reason they need to flatten the curve is to not over flow the hospitals....
Hospitals only have room for so many patients...the goal is to keep the number of sick people lower than the amount of beds needed....so they can process more people in and out....if the number of sick people goes over the number of beds more people could die.
We need to stop people from getting sick by staying at home.....it you stay home you can’t be near someone that is sick....
for everyone that doesn’t stay home more will get sick.....
I don't think anyone is disagreeing with you on this. However if you don't go out and pick up groceries most likely you will get weak and die. So I chose to use the slingshot to go to the grocery store and other places that are necessary.
For now its within guidelines. If things changes then I'll follow.

Anyone for "Made in America?"Screen Shot 2020-03-31 at 10.40.18 AM.png
Amazing, but not surprising. This is how other countries compete and undercut America business. You would think originations like the Word Health Organization would monitor and report. I just heard that the U.S. provides twice the funding as the next largest contributor. Anyone noticed how the WHO is dodging any negativity towards China?
Why are we throwing money away to these corrupt organizations only to be taken advantage of even to the point of those organization working against the U.S.
I have some questions
First how is riding a motorcycle or your slingshot putting others at risk? - - i mean you clearly are going to be a good safe distance from other people are you not?
Second how can officials tell people out joy riding as you put it from people simply going to or from their essential job or to or from a market - both of which are allowed?
Heck I have been riding my Slingshot to and from work every work day - its my daily driver - - how does that put anyone at risk?
Here in California they have even said that going out for walks or hikes or even to walk your dog are all allowed under the "stay at home" order just so long as you keep a safe social distance from others.
I don't know about where you are, but the governor of California has made it very clear that they do not mean "stay at home" to be taken 100% literally
Same applies here in South Jersey. Nothing wrong with wearing a mask or extra precautions. I my start wearing one in markets or where other people may be present. I'm all for taking extra steps but life goes on and if the experts issue guidelines and they are all followed correctly.
Keeping in mind this virus is a living thing and situations can and most likely will be fluid. As for me I'll keep informed on local guidelines and follow as instructed. As it stands today it is accepted to travel to work and the market. I have always used the sling for those purposes and I see no reason to change as long as it's within guidelines.
I think the issue is not with following the local guidelines but with the people who ignore those guidelines i.e. parties, congregations, distance, hand washing/disinfecting, etc. All those simple but effective precautions.
With this Virus forcing us to stay inside for a couple more two-week bouts, I'm thinking of moving to TEXAS, They're the only place that sells the new Spam Fries (outside of Mexico) and only sold at the HEB stores. They won't send me a case of them and will the slingshot events in Texas being cancelled, I won't be driving out there any time soon to pick some up myself. I might wait until AFTER the elections to see if I move to Texas or if I leave and head to MEXICO
Wow about some egg & bacon without the spam?
