Thursday Theories – Humanising the COVID 19 virus

In all honesty, it’s the only thing I am trying to give people any “credit” for. Are these anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers, trying to humanise a virus?

Every time I hear one of them speak. They keep acting like somehow the virus will just go away on it’s own, or it wont affect them or their “loved ones”. It’s weird to see. Does anyone else see it too? When I first started to write this post, I had things to show, but since I started this post last week…I knew that I should have just posted the links.

Too myself anyway, some people act like the virus wont affect them, if they just wish hard enough…and that’s not how viruses work.

Melbourne tradie who was in ICU with COVID urges protesting construction workers to get vaccinated

This guy was diagnosed with COVID, and then the next day, collapsed. He ended up spending two weeks in ICU.

Mr Chellia is one of more than 150 people linked to a cluster of COVID-19 cases at a Box Hill construction site.

He believes he contracted the virus after unthinkingly shaking hands with one of his colleagues, who was refusing to wear a mask.

“He said, ‘I’m a superman — I won’t get it,'” Mr Chellia said.

“After that, he got the virus, I got the virus, my other colleague got the virus.”

But Mr Chellia feels particular guilt for passing coronavirus on to his four-year-old twin daughters.

I find anti-vaxxers even weirder than Trump Supporters. You are NOT Superman. You are human and this virus can get you. Considering how many of them say the rest of us are living in lala land. It’s a pretty big statement to say that you’re Superman.

Do you know what I mean? They’re acting like humans are invincible, like they’re on some “noble” quest, like the Holy Grail, and they just can’t see what fools they are. If someone came up to me and said “I’m Superman, I will survive this”…I would slowly backwards from them.

Okay, maybe they’re not trying to humanize the virus, they’re just trying to super human themselves.

Relationships

These two…Too me, this is what a grown up relationship looks like…

The video itself is about 42 minutes.

With so many people breaking up during this virus, it’s made me wonder what is a successful relationship? Of course, each relationship is different, and each human being is different. But why have so many people broken up during this pandemic? It’s just interesting to me. Whether people have been spending too much time together, or not spending enough time together. I know one thing for sure, if one person doesn’t want it to work, it won’t. But is it just me, but do a LOT of people seem to be breaking up? My partner and I didn’t, we actually did really well,lol.

I think that this pandemic, really showed couples who they are together. It showed good things or bad things in our relationships, and not just the romantic ones.

I was going to write more, but I think that their video is pretty great really!
