How is this not a meme by now?

mechaMenace
I was looking at what planes are doing when I came across the term body pod.
All of these promo images are laughably photo-shopped. DA, please chime in :)

That is bad ass.  I want one of these retard suits.  When I google body pod I do not yield results.  What do I type into amazon to get one of these mamook pods.
And by awesome I mean totally sweet.

Yeah, I don't know what to say, I dream for nuclear war to take us all out every night.

I don't watch the news, so I'm not sure how everyone's states are doing, but I haven't worn my mask in about 2 weeks. When I am out and about, about 70% of people still seem to have their mask on.

Would be fun to wear one of these the next time you get the sniffles.

I typed full body pod covid. Otherwise, I had results for the 1950s scifi movie, cryo chambers, and isolation tanks. I'd actually like to try isolation tanks. It's like a coffin that drowns out all distractions which seems dumb for a vampire to use since any Belmont could just sneak up and stabeth thee in the heart.

If covid has its way (flip a coin), maybe this is the next requirement for entering Target to buy paper towels. I imagine doing this with another person / group would take some of the anxiety away.

I have experienced zero anxiety going into public with no mask on.  I just want one of these retard suits to be a real jerk.

I'm at 5.

If people who don't know each other didn't get together, stayed away from each other in their tiny hovel, and wore masks when around each other, the problem might go away without the need for vaccines that aren't long-term tested.

This would destroy the economy--maybe. If everyone said things were gratis, then maybe not. Fuck my rent went up $2K last year (2020) because California is a mf!

People get together at Spring break or in Brazil where the president said no masks and don't worry. India is fucked (which fucks everyone eventually). Their sanitation was shit to begin with and population is jam-packed. China / Korea have martial law over their citizens so they keep them away from each other, but even so I'm surprised by their numbers.

The virus affects blood vessels; it affects pretty much anything in the body. The damage it leaves behind after your bout with it is variable between people and recovery may not be 100%. You could end up with long-lasting effects.

As for what I'm doing: I wear a mask when going to garage sales and grocery stores. I don't meet new people.

BTW, I wear a surgical mask. It's not 100%, but it's better than those gaiters, bandanas, or other t-shirt shit people wear. Of course, my protection is mainly based on whether their face covering catches viral particles.

I'm less concerned being outside walking down the street without a ton of people. I don't live in NYC; however, I'd still wear a mask around someone I don't know outside or keep enough distance so I'm not huffing stranger-particles.

I've been walking down the sidewalk mask-free over a year. If someone comes my way, I step off the curb. I used to get perturbed when people did this to me. Now I just look dead-on, step off the curb, and do not put a mask on.

Yeah, I took the corona virus seriously for that first month or so. I remember when it was brand new and seeing this old couple dart to the other sidewalk as I walked by, like I was the grim reaper coming for them.

You got any Garage Sale videos in the works Mecha? Or Jerry?

I always enjoy seeing the body cam footage from those.

I have probably over a hundred of these things filmed. I am not exaggerating. Go look at my channel trailer. The last second has a clip of my catch phrase from 60 videos made into a video wall. I've probably filmed double the amount since then. The problem is time and money.

I am constantly working to afford living here and find very little extra time to edit, let alone plan anything more than a simple "I got this" vid. I want to do it, but I will dig a grave if I do. My body's been breaking down this year from working so much. Adding all-nighters to edit vids is going to make me cry.

Did I mention my rent went up by $2K last September? I guarantee my landlord will raise the rent again this year. While I like the apartment, and it's cheaper than anything close by, it has tons of problems; among them: no heat, hot water, one working burner on the stove, water from the shower that's causing an allergic effect--I'm taking showers in the sink for shit's sake!

I can spend big bucks on a lot of videogames, but there must be a way to recoup the funds to come out as close to scot-free as possible as soon as possible. I've never been late on rent.


My gsale videos suck since I have no idea where the phone is pointing even though I think I do at the time. It's like it was shot by a limp-wristed,one-armed orangutan.

My rent goes up a tad every year, it's a shitty scum bag thing to do imo, but never by 2 GRAND, is that legal?! Holy fuck!!!

I will probably be moving more in to the sticks and away from city in a year when the lease is up here. Where I live is a touristy rube magnet and people come in by the truck load to live here and things seems to get more expense. A lot of people from Ohio move here lol (no offense JT, JT would be a welcome addition).........BUT 2 FUCKING GRAND EXTRA A MONTH?!

Man you've really got to get out the sinking ship that is California, or maybe shack up with Balzak.

It's too bad we are all 80's babies, if we were actual boomers we could have just bought a house by the time we were 25.

Re: How is this not a meme by now?

California's a wreck. Ten years ago, you could get a one floor shack where you could sprinkle a few seed on the "lawn" for 500K+. That's not cool. Prices today are 700K+ on the cheap end now, but 1M+ is more common. I'm not on any government assistance, but I think that's what the state wants. Costs keep ballooning because they have a ton of programs, so business and municipalities start charging more. Usually you have to be some sort of invalid, a woman, or have a kid to be eligible for these programs, though I feel like I should be able to do this without their help.

Of course, there are cheaper towns in California. Usually they are in fire-prone areas.

I make it a part of my day to search for cheaper places. I've seen places for a few hundred bucks less pop up every now and then on CL. The scheme is that you rent a room only. I think I'm too weird to live with a stranger. Maybe it's just that I've become that way trying to live here. It now costs $4 to wash (no dry) one load of laundry now...

I believe I have the cheapest rent outside the shithole part of town that people fresh off the border rent. No hate; however, I never see those apartments advertised. Maybe nobody moves out. I can only guess that they're paying less for motel rooms built in the 50s converted into apartments. Maybe not. Maybe the landlords hold them over a barrel for their possible illegal activities or status and make them pay just as much, but they can do it if there's more than one adult bringing pay home. Dam, they jampack so many families in there.

That's how people afford living here. You're either Tim Apple working for GoogFace or you're shit poor and shacked up with at least two generations of family members. Besides the friendly octogenarians in my complex who don't play Ice Hockey, I'm the only single resident. Everyone else lives on two salaries or more.

Last I looked in moving out of the state, it cost over 9K. That was several years ago, before the angry PANDA turned up the heat on real estate. I know it's a flawed reason for staying, but I would miss the garage sales here, that is, if they ever go back to what I saw prior to 2020.

I can't sleep so I did some DuckDuckGoing

Housing cost to live in Mississippi is $6,297.26 a year.

I had to rack my brain to think if I ever did more than drive through Mississippi, and I remember going to Tunica, Mississippi in my younger days to gamble (play slots and get drunk with the boys). Not sure if it would be the safest or cleanest state though.

California is the most expensive behind Hawaii, oof.

I remember you writing "ANGRY PANDA" on my podcast once, I had no idea wtf you were talking about. Are you talking about China or like the World Wildlife Foundation? No one will ever see this forum outside of us, so it's safe to say.

Anywho you'll figure something out eventually I'm sure, there will be brighter days.

My systemic mortality prevents me from wearing a mask despite the claims that people can breathe with those damn things. I lasted 40 seconds with a n95 and quickly switched to a face shield.

It's all retarded and I'm at the point where I'm Alex Jones'ing this shit. I tried treating it with respect as I was pissing blood for a week during the first month of the virus, but when I was able to walk to the store and saw how every business was a viral time bomb with their sanitary practice, I learned that either everybody is infected now or it was all bullshit.

Yeah, people are dying, but it is only the people with type 2 diabetes and other metabolic disorders. And by the way, with my advanced psoriasis, fungal infection that took nearly 8 months to get mostly in remission, and fatty liver associated with my psoriasis, the worse I got was a gum infection and bronchitis in November thanks to my dad hacking up a lung in my general direction. It's a goddamn nightmare to see your entire upper gums be dark red without explanation.

I've been to the store nearly 100 times since the announcement and I usually went during crowded times. I'd seriously be dead if the virus was as bad as they claim to be. Since I'm already rambling, it is a treat to not know if I'm dead or not. Makes every time I wake feel like a blessing. There are many days I literally black out from the IBD pain, though at this point, the pain converted to dizzyness. I consider that an improvement. It's been almost 4 months since I've bled from my ass, so I'm guessing the all-meat diet is going well. Hard times, daddy-o. Get the fuck out of California and let Sodom burn to the ground.

Yes, GTFO out of Cali, throw Balzak in to a motorcycle sidecar and speed away as it sinks in to the ocean.

Also, the idea of a web series where you and Balzak are both farmers in Mississippi tending to crops and wrangling livestock, is something I'd gladly pay $20 a month to see.

I ended up looking at another chart of the US&A last night, and Maine seems like a pretty swell place I wouldn't mind living. Probably gets pretty chilly in the winter though.

Swingle, you are too powerful and angry to die. Wait is Swingle the Angry Panda???

I'm of the opinion anyone seen fleeing California should be shot on sight.  Californians made that shit hole they can keep it.  Can you imagine paying more than 4X my mortgage for a fucking ramshackle hovel?  LOL.  
And by awesome I mean totally sweet.

DeathAdder,

How do you not know that Chinks are the angry panda? Pandas are mostly found in China.

I'd recommend the Northwest. There are only two locations to avoid: Seattle and Portland. Everywhere else in Idaho, Washington, Oregon and Montana is actually comfortable living. The climate is mostly good and the people outside those two cities are mostly dumb republicans, so you get the benefit of people leaving you alone without the intelligence to organize. As much as I'm a Conservative at heart, Republicans give the Reich a bad name.

What Swingle said, just change North West to South East, and avoid Atlanta and Democrats lol.

And no, I had no idea Angry Panda was China for sure, it takes a long time for me to decode Mecha and your words sometimes, I am pretty dumb.

Google the demographics of Mississippi.  Draw your own conclusions.
