Since the world is cancelled and there's nothing to do, might as well talk about the one thing occupying everyone's attention: the COVID19 coronavirus. Anybody else stuck at home doing nothing?

Also, I figured this would be worth something to at least one person here:

I can't tell if this is trying to be sarcastic or if it's trying to give a message or both.

The information in it is useful, but the tone seems condescending to me. Which makes sense, because it's addressed to teenagers, the one group of people everyone enjoys condescending to.

My doctor friend said that kids (not sure what age range) don't actually have the receptor cells in their lungs that this virus can even infect.

I've also read elsewhere that the estimates for the percentage of people who die from it are in the 1-7% range. Varies depending on country and stuff. Mostly people above 60 years old.

It's ironic that they're telling people to avoid other people and touching things etc. I've been doing that for years lol. Probably why I nearly never get sick.

All this stuff about being creative doesn't really appeal to me as i've already been drained of all creativity and only can find happiness in video games and Youtube.

Yeah, that makes sense. School really does suck the life out of people. Sad

I like how this guy thinks.
How much life are we willing to give up in order to postpone death?
