My daughter just texted me saying she thinks her mum and stepsister have conronavirus. They both have fevers and coughs and her mum has lost her voice while her stepsister has been throwning up.
Hope not, Mac... :(

Thank you EUB. I had been wondering for ages what the hell one calls that particular art form: Polandball, aka "Countryball"

I missed my update on the "daily rate of increase" post before bedtime last night . . .
25-Mar-20..............................Increase %...................Running Average (5 days)
Confirmed Cases:......472,790..........16.03%........................9.27%
Recovered Cases:......114,911...........7.15%........................5.66%
Mortality:................21,313...........14.51%......................13.39%

No flattening of curve in sight . . . I hope everyone has accepted this is not going to be over soon. Better to err on the side of caution.

Starting from tomorrow I am officially a prisoner, locked in the Uusimaa province. The Finnish army is mobilized to guard the borders that no one can come, or go out.

I am cool with that, I am pretty certain that I would even notice it. Not going anywhere anytime soon, decided for me by our government.

I have tasked to cook food for an old timer living in the house, father of my ex-darling. Topi was delighted to hear about this food service. Today I will serve traditional pea soup (wulfir knows).

Eating is the principal way to support life, and cooking comes pretty close to that. :mrgreen:

Apparently a lot of people need to be reminded of the realities of Earth post 1971 -ish . . .

Fiat money
Fiat money is a currency without intrinsic value that has been established as money, often by government regulation. Fiat money does not have use value, and has value only because a government maintains its value, or because parties engaging in exchange agree on its value.[1] It was introduced as an alternative to commodity money and representative money. Commodity money is created from a good, often a precious metal such as gold or silver, which has uses other than as a medium of exchange (such a good is called a commodity). Representative money is similar to fiat money, but it represents a claim on a commodity (which can be redeemed to a greater or lesser extent).[2][3][note 1]

Government issued banknotes began to be used in 11th century China. Since then, they have been used by various countries, usually concurrently with commodity currencies. Fiat money started to dominate in the 20th century. Since the decoupling of the US dollar from gold by Richard Nixon in 1971, a system of national fiat currencies has been used globally.

Fiat money has been defined variously as:

Any money declared by a government to be legal tender.[4]
State-issued money which is neither convertible by law to any other thing, nor fixed in value in terms of any objective standard.[5]
Intrinsically valueless money used as money because of government decree.[2]
An intrinsically useless object that serves as a medium of exchange[6] (also known as fiduciary money.)[7]
The term fiat derives from the Latin fiat ("let it be done")[8] used in the sense of an order, decree[2] or resolution.[9]
Speaking about a national economy: the purpose of money is to make transactions of goods and services more efficient PERIOD. Money is not NECESSARY for transactions; there are other systems for that (theft, barter, balanced reciprocity, and then of course, weirdo ritualized systems like potlatch . . .). Money is not something that is inherently "good" to accumulate; it is only good to accumulate to the extent that (a) a future prospect of need can be reliably forecasted; (b) the future projected value of the money being accumulated can meet that need. In the absence of sound bases to make these sorts of predictions, then DEBT (effectively negative money) may in fact be more lucrative if it allows the assemblage of more goods/services than non-debt, and thus the growth of national economic dynamics at a faster or more sustainable rate than without the debt.

Obviously, a "Recession" precipitated by a collapsing financial sector(s) would not be a consequence free environment for the progressives among us any more than for any other flavor of big-brained overly opinionated two-leg walkin' ape people . . .
