Re: The Future Will Despise Us Brutal Bastards

Given that people refuse to stop going to bars and restaurants even as the pandemic grows exponentially, no, I don’t think so.

Re: Random covid-19 observations

Toilet paper is very much in short supply here. People won't stop going to bars, setting up maskless gatherings, or just generally acting as though wer're not in a pandemic. But they'll take it seriously enough to hoard shit paper.
