In a few, short months we have become a nation of germaphobes. We were discussing going to Walmart and not being able to visit a medical specialist. It gives me a headache just writing that last sentence.
And what of the “science” employed by those big box stores? Most have two large access points. Some have three. Federal, state and sometimes local authorities required these stores to take steps to keep their customers “safe” from the ChiComm plague. And how did they do that? By and large they decided to close all but on set of doors, funneling access and egress through one set of doors. What mental midget came up with this plan? Why not one in and one out, thinning the exposure between transients? That would be a bit more scientific anyway.
Also, through the magic of SWAG (Super Wild Ass Guessing) governments arrived at
magic numbers for these big stores that dictated how many people could be in the
stores at any given time. So you see one unfortunate employee with a number
clicker in hand counting the numbers going in and out. SOOOOOO scientific.
This is also a lot like how they reached the 6-foot magic distance of disease control…
“Expert” 1: I don’t know, George. We have to give them something.
“Expert” 2: Tell them to stay far apart in public. Make them feel like they are doing something.
“Expert” 1: Right. How about 3 feet?
“Expert” 2: Hmmmm. No. That just doesn’t feel like a big enough number.
“Expert” 1: How about 10 feet? There’s no way you can breath on someone from 10 feet.
“Expert” 2: Are you crazy? Walmart would never go for that.
“Expert” 1: Okay, 6 feet. That’s got to fly.
“Expert” 2: Yeah. It sounds significant and if public places can’t maintain that they can just shut down. Yeah. Perfect.
These are just silly examples of how we are “containing” the virus. But I said at the beginning everything we are being told is invalid. So far we have just discussed the results. These are all based on what we are told is the underlying “science” from the real “experts”. And that is what has been invalid almost from the beginning.
Travel back to the happy, carefree days of 2015-16, when the only worry we all had was Trump vs Clinton. Perhaps we can find ideas to help us cope with the national nuthouse we all live in now! Click here!
