Someone said it's from eating BATS in soup over there, find that hard to take..more like the biological weapons test tube breakout from plant is more plausible and I'll stick with that.

Yeah . We/I heard about BATS in Chinese soup . They are eating BAT soup for over 200,000 years ...
Give me a break !

I said it already 2 weeks ago . "SARS-CoV-2" came from here => https://www.vox.com/2020/3/4/2115660...hina-wuhan-lab

I'm 99 % sure from where it came ...

My theory :
One of our well known terrorists bought the virus via an underground Chinese connection in the "Wuhan virus lab" .
As we know : "Money can buy everything" !

Once he/she got it in their hands . A place with a lot of people was required to spread the virus as much as possible ..So , he/she dropped the (little) virus bottle on the Huanan Marketplace .
The rest is what we can see everyday ...

A very likely possibility..so many people there one on top of the other..then fleeing in thousands...and/or like the ruski hit squad that came here to terminate an exiled politbureau,wiping on door handles of home and car then leaving it in perfume bottle near house.

They say it's slowing down over here but slowly as people wake up and take more precautions. A woman here aged 55 went to a funeral..and she caught it and died.

Researchers here are saying that the school jab,BCG injection which every child received from 10-14 up to 2005,may be effective in shaking off the virus even before it starts.
A professor of experimental medicine at the Imperial College London says the BCG vaccine may be effective because it seems to trigger something called 'trained immunity' where the whole immune system is on alert.
Researchers in four countries are starting tests now to see if the jab could protect millions from the deadly C/V 19 virus.

This is good news - hopeful the 24/7 pursuit will provide a vaccine.

If you had this BCG school jab with the booster afterwards then you may be protected with turbo immune system against C/V..
Me and the wife had these jabs when at school, it's signified by a slight roughage patch to where the jabs were administered.

How incredible that the BCG shot could benefit you! Keep us posted!

That's a nice collection through the ages and who can forget Senna!
It's interesting that Schumacher there only got into the Benneton Jordan team then because the main Belgian driver Bertrand Gachot was arrested and charged for using a banned CS gas canister on a violent taxi driver in central London and there was an outcry when he was jailed for 6 months but released after 2 months after successful appeal.
He stayed at Brixton prison which is two roads away from where I was living at the time.

Love it that you know and remember the back-story as to how Schuey had his first GP start - I believe he qualified very well (P7) but the clutch failed.

Here's a little history of my motorsport attendance....

Riverside International Raceway:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rivers...tional_Raceway

From the late 60's through the mid 70's....I saw SCCA Group 7 Can Am cars with Denny Hulme, Bruce McLaren, Peter Revson; The International Race of Champions, NASCAR cars on the road course, etc.

Ontario Motor Speedway:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ontario_Motor_Speedway
----
Attended the inaugural California 500 Indy Car race in 1970; it was "Indy West" meaning it was an exact replica of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway; attended NASCAR on the 2.5 mile oval.
----
Laguna Seca Raceway:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weathe...ay_Laguna_Seca
Early to mid 90's....I was THE most incredible FIM GP bikes in the world....500 cc 2 stroke machines that were ROCKETS....Wayne Rainey on the Marlboro Roberts Yamaha....Mick Doohan on the Rothmans Honda....Kevin Schwantz on the Lucky Strike Suzuki....they would achieve nearly 190 mph on the uphill back-straight before braking for the world famous Corkscrew turn; went to multiple CART Indy Car races here as well

The Laguna Seca track is more known to me and talking about bikes I love reading up on and watching vids of those 500cc 2 stroke bike battles.What sticks most in me tho is the mid 70's battles and Barry Sheene's high speed accident at Daytona which allowed Agostini to take the title that year.
Contrary to popular belief that a puncture caused Sheene's accident it was actually the rear tyre expanding and was locked by the swing arm.He recovered and became champ in 76-77 then 'King' Kenny Roberts got it in '78.
Sheens's career ended after another serious bike crash in '82 which broke up his legs again.I've read his biography.
