was talking to a friend about coronavirus today and was saying it’s just like the beginning of nearly every new wave zombie movie – news reports about a novel pathogen emerging into the world playing in the background while people are arguing  about bullshit and getting dressed for work, the announcement of the beginning of the end of the world drowned out by proximate trivia, distracting, dazzling, shiny pebbles to our gormless, magpie minds. Is this the end of the world? If this isn’t, then something else will be later. Our place in the universe is that of an old man who after a period of increasingly frequent health scares inevitably has the health scare that turns out to be the real thing and he dies, horribly, the end.
