If I don't know something I can probably find it out easier as well. Just PM if you wish -hopefully that will keep the sphincter police happy.

oldford2,
where is it headed ??

Ryan is a young strong man, but as a man, he is not beyond reach of a world pandemic...you think ?

I'm one of the white haired people that cannot afford ignorance on top of being old, regarding this pandemic.

How about giving a little slack to someone who just may help us all here with his posted knowledge/concerns ??

Just walk on by if some thread subject irritates upsets your senses,eh..
This is no BS subject to be taken lightly.. I think that Ryan will agree.

There are almost an infinite number of internet sites where you can discuss pandemics, religion, and politics or whatever you feel like. This is not one of them. This is an early Ford site. Some of us come here for that and really don't want to sort through the extraneous crap to get to what we want. We may even be here to get away from it, if only for a while.

Please have your off topic discussions elsewhere.

OK, to put some Ford related content back into the conversation, (and Chev/Buick/Dodge/Studebaker/Pontiac/AMC/GMC/Lincoln/Cadillac/Desoto/Mercury and all the rest), take a look at the empty streets and highways these days. Look at the bridges and the overpasses and the parking lots. Look at the Downtowns and the Uptowns and the neighborhood shopping districts. From my perspective, I haven't seen such a sight since Sunday afternoons in 1948. Come to think of it, I didn't see it then either, because I was home setting the table for Sunday dinner, usually Chicken and Dumplings with home made bread and real butter. Nobody on the streets, all at home, family time, with Amos & Andy on the radio, and after dinner, turn on the TV to stare at the Test Pattern before Uncle Miltie.

I do not agree with Ol Ron or Tubman on this.

Why can't the two of you just walk on by so to speak?

This is an unusual and scary time for all of us.

Coopman provided factual information that was not political or inflammatory.

Heck, even the title stated it had nothing to with flatheads.

I guess in the end we'll never know since Coopman took it down and Ryan hasn't weighed in.

I guess we can all carry on at this point since the point is moot.

I agree with you. I did in fact see the post and it was helpful.
Why is there post after post about some Bud Girls that are young enough to be your grand daughters on here but we can't have one that may help us in this trying time?
What do Bud Girls have to do with old Fords?

We didn't say don't do it; just not here. You can piss in the kitchen sink, but reasonable people just don't do it.

Great point, Randy. I've said my peace, so I'm moving on. Thanks for the reality check.

If any of y'all care to do just a little bit of simple snooping over on the H.A.M.B (like I did this morning), it isn't hard to find at least three threads started by Mr.Ryan Cochran hisself concerning THIS pandemic. On top of that, I found one 3-page thread started by one of the well-known H.A.M.B. MODERATORS that contains posts on the subject that run the gamut from serious cognizance all the way down to ludicrous absurdity. SOME folks get it...these are unprecedented times we're in here, girls and men. For anyone among us that continues to believe that nobody on the FordBarn wants this shit discussed here, my PM box exploded Friday with requests from I don't know how many guys who missed it before I took it down, asking if I would please send them a copy. There were even a few more stragglers yesterday. I accommodated every last request! Roger and out! Dick D (DD)

Johns Hopkins University Sent this excellent summary:

* The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipid (fat), which, when absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or buccal mucosa, changes their genetic code. (mutation) and convert them into aggressor and multiplier cells.


* Since the virus is not a living organism but a protein molecule, it is not killed, but decays on its own. The disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity and type of material where it lies.


* The virus is very fragile; the only thing that protects it is a thin outer layer of fat. That is why any soap or detergent is the best remedy, because the foam CUTS the FAT (that is why you have to rub so much: for 20 seconds or more, to make a lot of foam). By dissolving the fat layer, the protein molecule disperses and breaks down on its own.


*HEAT melts fat; this is why it is so good to use water above 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees F) for washing hands, clothes and everything. In addition, hot water makes more foam and that makes it even more useful.

* Alcohol or any mixture with alcohol over 65% DISSOLVES ANY FAT, especially the external lipid layer of the virus.

* Any mix with 1 part bleach and 5 parts water directly dissolves the protein, breaks it down from the inside.
* Oxygenated water helps long after soap, alcohol and chlorine, because peroxide dissolves the virus protein, but you have to use it pure and it hurts your skin.

* NO BACTERICIDE SERVES. The virus is not a living organism like bacteria; they cannot kill what is not alive with anthobiotics, but quickly disintegrate its structure with everything said.

* NEVER shake used or unused clothing, sheets or cloth. While it is glued to a porous surface, it is very inert and disintegrates only between 3 hours (fabric and porous), 4 hours (copper, because it is naturally antiseptic; and wood, because it removes all the moisture and does not let it peel off and disintegrates).
24 hours (cardboard), 42 hours (metal) and 72 hours (plastic).
But if you shake it or use a feather duster, the virus molecules float in the air for up to 3 hours, and can lodge in your nose.

* The virus molecules remain very stable in external cold, or artificial as air conditioners in houses and cars. They also need moisture to stay stable, and especially darkness. Therefore, dehumidified, dry, warm and bright environments will degrade it faster.

* UV LIGHT on any object that may contain it breaks down the virus protein. For example, to disinfect and reuse a mask is perfect. Be careful, it also breaks down collagen (which is protein) in the skin, eventually causing wrinkles and skin cancer.
* The virus CANNOT go through healthy skin.
* Vinegar is NOT useful because it does not break down the protective layer of fat.
* NO SPIRITS, NOR VODKA, serve. The strongest vodka is 40% alcohol, and you need 65%.
* LISTERINE IF IT SERVES! It is 65% alcohol.
* The more confined the space, the more concentration of the virus there can be. The more open or naturally ventilated, the less.
* This is super said, but you have to wash your hands before and after touching mucosa, food, locks, knobs, switches, remote control, cell phone, watches, computers, desks, TV, etc. And when using the bathroom.
* You have to HUMIDIFY HANDS DRY from so much washing them, because the molecules can hide in the micro cracks. The thicker the moisturizer, the better. * Also keep your NAILS SHORT so that the virus does not hide there.
