In 2020, I found out that my normal level of human interaction is called “social distancing”.





Future generations be like: born too late to live on Earth, born too early to explore fuck all because everything is on fire.

Or maybe that’s our generation.


I think Occam’s Razor would apply in that case. And the secular theory requires fewer assumptions.
