Why is it so fucking hard for people to follow basic rules? FFS you're supposed to stay at home to limit contact between people, that doesn't mean you can play volleyball with your friends or go to the local park! And if you decide to go hiking, choose a place where you'll be alone, not the most popular trails around the city! You're the fucking reason government needs to make new quarantine regulations every day, not this virus, and you deserve no help if you catch it! Fuck you!

    Social creatures resist social restrictions, and despite our intelligence and self awareness some of us forgot to evolve past our most basic instincts and can only learn by experience so basically, idiots dont listen

    Except for the volleyball I don't really see the issue. If you can space yourself from other people by around 6ft there's a low chance of catching/transmitting the virus. And it dies fairly quickly in UV.

    The virus can stay airborn in a lab and survive for hours. So home could be a petri dish if someone is sick. Outside may be healthier in some circumstances. I am hoping UV kills this thing.

    @Matthewb Disregard for other people probably isn't a part of social nature, although being too dumb to understand the broader consequences of your actions definitely seems to be...

    @hitko it is when the concequences of your actions arent immediate, like climate change. Forward thinking is less potent in some people

    @hitko based on humans based instinct though, socialization is a pretty big part of survival. And dumb monkey brain can win out over logical brain in odd ways. Also, if like me you are in the US, there is a massive streak of individualism built into the culture. A lot know but don't care.

    @Matthewb experimental evidence has shown that humans are really bad at forward thinking in general.

    @projektaquarius Or that the people who volunteer for such experiments are really bad at forward thinking.

    @Demolishun even with observational results and statistical analysis they still found that humans are bad at forward thinking. It's another symptom of dumb monkey brain. That said, one common problem in psychology is the pool of volunteers.

    @projektaquarius Which humans? Pretty sure the humans that managed to survive long harsh winters and establish civilisations in other hostile environments, or even travel thousands of miles by boats to inhabit remote islands were damn good at forward thinking. So were farmers if they wanted to survive, and investors, and those establishing companies, and researchers, and ...

    @hitko a lot of that can be attributed to accidents or survival for the present and a natural result of long term survival as an intelligent sentient race and not really forward thinking.

    If your gov had implemented marshal law and police hour, people would be VERY PISSED. Some people just need time... natural selection is a slow but effective process. The biggest disease is stupidity not cov.

    @Demolishun At least 15 minutes of UV is needed to deactivate the virus

    @M1sf3t a lot of it is actually because of our dumb monkey brains and the fact that instinctually we favor survival. It is better to have in the short term than in a future that may never come. Even as early as 200 years ago it didn't really "pay" to plan for the future. Factor in that we're not, evolutionarily speaking, an old species our base instincts haven't caught up with modern society. And since entertainment feeds our reward centers as much if not more than food, we end up with the impulse buys, etc.

    People in dating apps have been more active lately as well. Horny creatures have found a way to call it "searching for a quarantine buddy".

    @M1sf3t We can do it with "no hands".

    I always hated handshakes, being an in crowed and public places where a lot of people wandering around so no problem for people like me but i see people are idiots.

    BTW i am staying home today. I called in sick (I am not sick actually, just taking care of myself)

    Shaking hands, kissing, working together and offices staying open.

    and some company owners including mine are like :

    So quarantine was hard to survive. It is good that vaccination is going really strong and restrictions are gradually easing.

    I agree with you! With this rate of vaccination, we will soon return to normal life. But it seems to me that we won't soon be allowed not to wear masks in public. Personally, I'm tired of wearing them, but what can I do. I'm tired of ordinary masks, I want something new. My friend recommended me https://masterbundles.com/best-medi..., where you can order a lot of medical masks with original designs. I have ordered some so that I can wear different masks on different days of the week. I recommend you take a look, there are many interesting options.
