Remember those clowns who told me that coronavirus was nothing, that TPOL was killing the economy by not traveling, that the flu kills more people, that this was an invention of the media, and on and on and on? I do (see Thank You Delta: Coronavirus Waiver). As this pandemic spreads, I don’t hear from those idiots anymore. What I do see are jerks going to the bar, drinking coronas, and thinking that getting the virus won’t affect them. While the chances of dying from this virus are very low for most people, especially the young, that doesn’t mean that people should be acting so recklessly.
Why? Because if you contract the virus and you come into contact with an elderly person or someone with a preexisting condition, you could infect that person. And that person may not fare as well as you. It is time to be paranoid about this pandemic. It is time to practice social distancing. It is not time to be a jerk and post photos on Instagram of you in a crowded place yelling lame shit like, “YOLO!”
Worst case is that TPOL is wrong, is overreacting, and we all live.
