hollow_fang 67 points ago +68 / -1

I can only think that it's a sunken cost fallacy for these people. They're well aware of just how much they've fucked up their lives, their future, and their society by locking themselves in their home and hiding under their bed from the flu. They also know, in the back of their mind, that it isn't all that deadly/dangerous. That they didn't need to do what they did and they'll be feeling the consequences for a decade or more.

NO! This couldn't have all been for nothing! They need it to be a world-ending extinction-level event to justify, in their minds, that burning down society was actually necessary, that the social media attention they got for wearing a mask or sitting on their ass was because they were a good person and not a sheep. Whether they want to or not, they know that it isn't all that serious, but they want it to be so bad. They need it to be. They just can't admit to themselves that they were wrong, and that the people who did actually leave their house without a mask and live their lives were right. Can't have that, so let's double down on restrictions and lock down and virtue signal even harder until we have that magical vaccine that we ruined the entire year for.

thisisatestof2 20 points ago +20 / -0

I believe you hit the nail on the head with that statement. In the deep blue communist state of Connecticut, I am seeing more and more of these Karen’s who have been hiding in their house, admitting they didn’t even take a walk like they used to because they wanted to protect everyone from getting Covid in they were being a responsible citizen by doing so, etc. Starting to practically beg For a vaccine ASAP so they can get back to normal.

That fits perfectly with what you have described, they refuse to admit, and they will never admit it was not nearly as bad as they have made it out to be a continue to say how horrible it is and social media every day. They Will never admit that back in March or so they got scared and said I’ll stay inside for two weeks, and buy all the toilet paper, and then it’ll go back to normal, but then when the media kept scaring them they kept getting deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole of fear.

I honestly believe this people will have some form of PTSD or mental health issues once all this is done. I don’t know if they’ll ever be “normal” again. They have spent almost an entire year at this point being scared of their fellow citizens in thinking all the ways their fellow citizens actions will kill With this mysterious scary virus.

SenditDownrange 45 points ago +46 / -1

Recently went to a restaurant and when the pimply-faced asshat pointed his little temperature gun at my forehead, I asked, "How do you calibrate those things?"

He blankly stares at me, points it again at my forehead, pulls the trigger and says, "Like this."

I say, "No, how do you calibrate them, to make sure they're accurate?"

He fucking points it at my head again, pulls the trigger, and says, "Like this."

I say, "How do you know the reading is accurate?"

"Uh..."

His jaw goes slack like he's pondering the enormity of the entire universe, and you can hear the rusty wheels of his mind grinding gears. It was at this point that I realized that this voting age male is the type that would shove a butt plug up his ass if the CDC said covid was spread by farts, and that he's definitely going to be voting Biden. So I just gave up and went to my table. Life's too short...

Those things will give a wide range of temperature readings depending on the COLOR of the object that is being measured. It’s called emissivity and most those temp guns usually don’t have a way to change the default setting.

17
daberoniandcheese 17 points ago +17 / -0

I missed out on a pretty good job opportunity a couple months ago because one of those things said I was running a 101 fever after they made us sit in our cars for two hours waiting for them to let us in one by one. I don’t have air conditioning. Of course, I didn’t actually have a fever when I measured my temp at home.

I can’t think of an easier way to spread germs than using the same head thermometer on everyone as they walk in.

We went into a restaurant last weekend and they took our temperature. I sat down at the booth, looked at my girlfriend and said, “We’re never coming here again.”

bck- 9 points ago +9 / -0

Yeah most likely, but they aren’t wiping it down between people, and if the so called experts say it’s “airborne” which is why a lot of restaurant that opened for inside dining refused to put the AC on during the summertime around here, then waving their hands in my face wouldn’t be a very good idea, right? And who the hell is going out if they have a temperature anyways? It’s so ridiculous.

Regardless if it’s airborne or not, I don’t want a strangers nasty ass hands waving around my face to begin with. COVID or no COVID, the average person’s hands are disgusting and I don’t want them anywhere near me.

Not to mention, these aren’t registered nurses or doctors taking my temperature it’s teenagers with no experience elsewhere.

The rules they put in place are so fucking ridiculous and laughably hypocritical, it’s foolish.

I tried going out to eat a week or so ago at a restaurant I hadn’t been to since they reopened and after the state force them to close. I ordered a steak. I was served a stake in a to go container with plastic knife. After speaking with the manager, who denied me a steak knife, due to health regulations saying that it is too dangerous to serve a meal on real plates with a real silverware “because the servers would touch the plate” but apparently the servers didn’t touch them to go container to bring it to my table?

I tried in the steak but after breaking several plastic knives I got the manager again who gave me a refund on the steak, paid for my appetizers and drinks and left.

I had to make an emergency trip to my local target last week. As I walked in I grabbed one of the little hand baskets and after I got about 50 feet in the store some kid comes running up with a spray bottle and towels saying “sir, sir, sir, I have to sanitize the handle before you can take it” I asked them why wasn’t the Handle cleaned before you put the baskets out, he said they do it before you pick it up So it makes you feel comfortable shopping there.

Strangely, he nor any employee said anything about me not wearing a mask at all in the state where it is required.

Definitely the transients and low lifes ruining it for the rest of us.

Library when I was a kid made you go to the desk and sign in to get a bathroom key because druggies and hookers had been using them for their escapades. Also, the thievery was so out of control they only put empty boxes of media out in a small back room filled with cameras and then they were filled at the check out desk. Even popular and new books were in a locked case.

I moved to an upper middle class area and the library system is one of the best things about it. Clean, safe, and well stocked. They even put out free coffee and cookies.

Lt. Bookman of the NYPL was definitely needed...

"Yeah, 1971. That was my first year on the job. Bad year for libraries.

Bad year for America. Hippies burning library cards, Abby Hoffman

telling everybody to steal books. I don't judge a man by the length of

his hair or the kind of music he listens to. Rock was never my bag. But

you put on a pair of shoes when you walk into the New York Public

Library, fella.

Well, let me tell you something, funny boy. Y'know that little stamp,

the one that says "New York Public Library"? Well that may not mean

anything to you, but that means a lot to me. One whole hell of a lot.

Sure, go ahead, laugh if you want to. I've seen your type before:

Flashy, making the scene, flaunting convention. Yeah, I know what you're

thinking. What's this guy making such a big stink about old library

books? Well, let me give you a hint, junior. Maybe we can live without

libraries, people like you and me. Maybe. Sure, we're too old to change

the world, but what about that kid, sitting down, opening a book, right

now, in a branch at the local library and finding drawings of pee-pees

and wee-wees on the Cat in the Hat and the Five Chinese Brothers?

Doesn't HE deserve better? Look. If you think this is about overdue

fines and missing books, you'd better think again. This is about that

kid's right to read a book without getting his mind warped! Or: maybe

that turns you on, Seinfeld; maybe that's how y'get your kicks. You and

your good-time buddies. Well I got a flash for ya, joy-boy: Party time

is over. Y'got seven days, Seinfeld. That is one week!"
