I feel like a solid 20-30% of Monty Python bits were about pompous Brits complaining about other people doing the things those pompous Brits were doing at that moment.

"Someone should be stopping me from what I'm doing."

Jeeze

I didn't need the govt to tell me to go into lockdown. And I certainly won't be listening when they tell me to come out.

I'm really enjoying how much attention our little horrible rag of a local paper is getting in Farkistan.

This is the exact thing that pisses me off the most. It's like the stories where someone is killed in a quad bike crash and their relative says, "He would be alive today if it was compulsory to wear a helmet. The government needs to act."

No no no. He chose to do something stupid, which he knew was irresponsible, and now there are complaints that someone should have stopped him.

Take some personal responsibility and use your freedom to do what YOU think is best.

This reminds me of Dave Bautista starring in a commercial for Smirnoff with a cast and crew of 30 or more telling me to not gather in crowds...and drink responsibly.

Fark both of these hypocrites.

Gyrfalcon: "I'm not smart enough to stay inside unless someone tells me to; and not able to do it unless I'm forced to."


At least he is honest with him self.

And, he is correct.

All of us need to realize we would not need any lock down, if we'd be adult enough to stay away from each other, avoid lines and crowds and not talk and or cough as much as we do so freely even to this day.  But since people won't do that, we NEEDED/ need lock downs.
/I should point out, not once has any one explained where all the people that are fine avoiding people they think are uncool are? I think they are the asshats with guns crying for haircuts. It's odd people are fine avoiding the people they don't like, but, make them avoid the same people and they cry. Same with people on their phones in public. Oh now you want humans interaction?

Several years ago - maybe a decade or more - we moved into a sort of "global warming fatigue," where every histrionic "sky is falling" doom-mongering story or failed prediction of certain impending apocalypse was just sort of yawned at and people simply went about their business because the world never seemed to end on schedule.

I can't wait until we get there with Covid-19, too. I predict that it will happen within a year, as more and more people either get mildly sick and recover, or we come out of our homes and realize that the streets and hospitals aren't ever going to be littered with corpses from a virus with a >99+% survival rating. People will just yawn and go about their business, and it will be glorious.

Like with the flu?
Yeah, I hope not.
Those flu deaths are not necessary.
We actually should change our societies .
Both these diseases aren't needed and are avoidable.
We just have a will to find a solution.

If it is correct that it only get transmitted via the air and not much at all via surfaces; they must be something we can do to air in buildings in confined spaces.
this isn't complicated we're just too lazy or too apathetic about it because it's not going to kill indifferently everyday forever.

"I can't believe I'm out here doing this, I shouldn't be. I mean I really should not be drinking a beer out here in public so close to people with no mask or social distancing whatsoever. It's crazy I can do this, but I really shouldn't be allowed to. Definitely not. Very bad idea."

Hardly the point.

Not the point, in fact.

TL, DR; Some people are so stupid that without the government specifically telling them what to do, they'll do what they feel like, even IF they think they shouldn't be doing it...

Not sure if this is satire if not, but the much scarier thing is when people become so stupid that they do exactly what the government or some authority figure tells them to do. The Milgram experiment showed how easily you can turn average people into Nazis, NKVD, or Stasi agents, and then you end up with mountains of corpses that put Covid to shame.

NO, it wasn't satire.

My point was that the guy is really concerned about this, and thinks the lockdown should be extended. But since the government hasn't told him to stay home and isolate, even though he thinks that he should be at home, he's still going out...
