Our local pharmacy doesn't let anyone inside; they made a quick inner door with a glass window and a slot to pass things through, customers have to stay outside.
They told me best to phone in my order next time, they'll have it packed. This to minimize customers crowding together outside.
That's funny, my acid reflux reared it's ugly head the other day and I happened to pass by a pharmacy,
so I figured it's good that I did and wanted to get some over the counter meds.
You would have thought the zombie hoard was at their door step, boxes where placed at the door
as a barricade.

Our local pharmacy is all female. They had a guy assistant for a while but he got fired.
The woman who owns the place once told me her husband is quite handy.
The door was pretty basic, but I could see he had little to work with. did a decent job with some scrap and duct tape.

"Gusty Winds" predicted. That's what we need and why the heck not. Folks we conversed have lost their houses by tornadoes.

The Pharmacy. The same pharmacy which quit selling tobacco products years ago. There was some reason they were pounded upon and maybe it comes clear. State taxes on every pack of smoke. It is all about the money.

The proximity to the military bases is something to reckon with quickly. That one woman holds knowledge. She is bright and I am dim. I defer to her. Awesome sounds of aircraft.
I hope the person understands.

Pretend there wasn't a reason.
Kill all the humans and leave the huge fields intact. Before killing the humans, remember the ( stupid) cheap movies They flooded the world and dear people thought that was the way. The Blob or the the Thing was absorbing an entire town. One way was a virus and this plague . I don't hate the Chinese a bit but gosh ...many are crying. NO no .

I thought I was doing well and all this blood coming out my right nasal cavity. I didn't have a problem before. I was using Zycam and it really does work. Left nasal passage was healing while too strong for the right. Whatever it takes. It is fine and I can walk again and get things done.

A virus has no brain, no consciousness. Planning and achieving is not its function.
A virus is a complex sets of molecules come together in one of nearly infinite structures allowed by chemistry.
It just happen to be destructive to other similar but different structures in the human body.

I would think the answer would be obvious.

The only way to take over the world is to kill your opposition. :D
