I love the use of the phrase 'post-pandemic'.  It assumes that there will be anything after the pandemic.

Pants full of macaroni!!: I love the use of the phrase 'post-pandemic'.  It assumes that there will be anything after the pandemic.


The human race has survived every pandemic that's been thrown at it.  Even the Black Death, which wiped out a pretty significant portion of the population, and went on for about five years.

So yes, Virginia, there will be a post-pandemic world.  What it will look like, though, is anyone's guess.

The Black Death lasted 7 years. This is bad, but not that bad. If the Black Death is a marriage that ends in broken bones and kids taken as wards of the state, this is a summer romance that got off on the wrong foot and got worse.

I'd wait until the waitstaff has better, easier to disinfect, PPE:

500 million people died from small pox over the span of 1877-1977

I assume this isn't more widely discussed because We had the vaccine and They didn't.

They shouldn't be, because they are largely useless. Going in and out of various bubbles/enclosures/whatever doesn't help much because you're still exposing yourself and interacting with common spaces and surfaces in between. And it's already hard enough to get a restaurant to properly wipe off a table before seating the next party; no way they're also going to sanitize some plexiglas bubble each time.

Ditto with the steps airlines are attempting to take. No middle seat and no overhead use are meaningless; you're already taking on 99% of the risk just showing up at the airport and getting on the plane.

This is all simply "let's look like we're doing *something*" on a global scale.

The local Waffle House has put clear shower curtains between the booths.

Carry a Van de Graaff generator and drag a ground chain. The static field will keep the viruses away. Don't touch anything.
