Without technology this would have been so much worse for a lot of people.
Great point re technology.

It would have been worse for us all HP. The kids, never mind us lot would have broken our hearts.

That fucking casino has eaten me alive. I do own the penthouse allthough I cant afford the private dealer.

As speculative as I have been, I still maintained my social distancing and other measures whilst out and about in public, purely out of respect for others more than myself.

I do feel that there is a bigger issue going to occur in the coming months with Mental Health from the lockdown measures put in for the COVID 19/Coronavirus Pandemic.

Living in a small country town in the West of Ireland, if I look at my social circle, whilst there is a few of married with kids, there are many of whom are single farmers in their 40's whose only social out put was their few pints of a Friday or Saturday evening but as of now they have been stuck on the farms for the last numbers of weeks, with the exception of the odd trip to the Co-op.

Marts have been closed, pubs closed, restaurants closed. Therefore, they literally were left abandoned, like so many others in different sectors.

I have went out to my mates, doing a bit of baling during the week with them and whatnot.

If any of you have any friends, or know of anyone living along, regardless of their age, it might be now harm to actually check in on them from time to time, don't mind the 5KM boundaries, you can't put a boundary on someones mental health state.

I do worry that suicides could over take the COVID 19 death tally if things aren't somewhat restored to some bit of normality.
I hope you haven't seen that letter signed by those scientists of depression.. the likes of Gerry killen and Anthony Staines want us locked up till 2034

Cleaned it out completely one morning at 5am using the security guard disguises and clearing the vault out before the gas went off.

Absolutely my most entertaining and enjoyable lockdown moment

All guns blazing or by way of stealth? Stealth with headshots is fucking waaaaay to hard. Are Rockstar* mad like?

Also i mean I was cleaned out on the blackjack and poker tables. My buddy won the jackpot on one of the fruits, the jammy bastard lol.

They really would want to make GTA cross platform. FFS its over six years old now!
