    they don't even know it.
    I got absolutely flattened by a flu in mid Dec last year and it did exactly that. Spent two days in the hospital, and I'm still on the steroid inhaler 5 months later.

    Trying to avoid this covid shit like the plague really.

    What a nightmare. I'd rather drive just about anything than a prius, and the new ones are puzzlingly ugly compared to the completely bland and unremarkable early models.

    Sure, but you have to base your skepticism on something valid. Otherwise what's the point? With a healthy dose of skepticism about reality and a bit of fun at thought exercises we could all go down the path of we all live in a simulation. And that's fun and all, but how much does it matter in its affect to us? It doesn't change anything about our life at all. That said, I always take whatever any agency is saying with a grain of salt. They certainly all their own agendas and unfortunately, best public interests seems to be pretty far down the list. That said, if anyone is saying that Covid19 doesn't exist or that no has died from it... well.. people also believe in invisible forces that will grant them wishes if they think about it hard enough. To sum it up, people are crazy.

    it's too early to know what this new china virus does.
    you don't die from the virus you die from complications like pneumonia heart attacks strokes people are getting permanently damaged lungs
    they don't even know it. damaging organs or just dieing in their sleep.

    if youre in the middle of nowhere nebraska wyoming or something you wouldn't care vs ppl in new york or california or texas where basically everyone person
    in every city is going to get it.

    Conspiracies are stupid, but I've been skeptical about how serious a threat this virus actually is to the average healthy person and if extending these quarantine orders are serving any purpose. From what I've seen it seems like those who get it recover just like you would from any other flu. I think the media is making a huge deal out of it because disaster reporting always get the most attention, and I have to wonder if that's partly responsible for lawmakers continually extending quarantine orders. I think here in Michigan businesses were expected to reopen in mid April but now we're looking at the end of May... The economic impact of this is going to be terrible.

    the way they report annual deaths for normal seasonal flu is estimated not actual but they put it out as actual.
    so its probably much lower, or higher, then the number they give. idk about it being a lie, but when ppl think that's actual and they find out it's no they feel lied to
    and jump on conspiracy band wagons.

    also, china.

    Stupidity. People always seem to want some sort of conspiracy/drama and can't accept that counting/reporting procedures are not perfect or even close to ideal.

    If you do that, drop an M72 with 530G into it as well.

    btw....there are a couple e39 wagons advertised for sale over there in that neck of the woods. 2 of them were m62 cars. one had a getrag 420 swapped in. the problem is that i need another project about as bad as i need a lobotomy.

    thank you guys for the kind comments. my son bought it as a dd actually. it was the nicest zhp 6 speed car we could find at a reasonable price. we met the guy at 4 pm on tuesday. we were on the road driving it back by about 6 pm or so .we made it home the next morning without incident. the previous owner replaced the radiator about 1000 miles ago but he didn't do the water pump or t-stat.

    manual trans e46's are REALLY hard to find it would seem....

    Perfect if you want a slow family boat. You'd have to pay me to take a 530i over a 330i ZHP.

    Cool car, now trade it an E39 530i with sport goodness and some cash to you. Use said cash to give the E39 a locking rear end and enjoy the perfect car.
