The New Grocery Store Etiquette
Or: Who was that masked man?
Apologies to The Lone Ranger
Yesterday, in the supermarket, after dutifully spritzing and trusting my beloved personal shopping cart to the man in control of admission to the inner sanctum, I found I could not access one of the aisles because the lineup (due to distancing) was preventing me.
Standing in my way (no fault of his; his feet were planted firmly in the middle of the designated distancing circle) was a young man wearing a mask. I could see only his left eye as it glanced warily at me sideways. I asked politely (yes, I can be polite!) if he would allow me to access the aisle and -- I'm not exaggerating -- he literally goosestepped sideways! When I had passed him, he goosestepped back onto the circle. Either he's always been a little bit crazy or he's been made mad with fear and suspicion of others.
Or else, he's a part-time bank robber and worried I might be an undercover FBI agent?
I worried I might have done something wrong by asking him to move, so when I encountered a floor clerk I asked if it was okay for people to traverse the aisle from both ends, and she said, "Oh, sure" -- even though the aisles are too narrow for proper distancing when one person passes another.
That didn't bother me, but may quite possibly have frightened the masked man -- or not, if he was just a robber with a guilty conscience. He didn't pull a gun on the cashier, so that's a positive sign.
This whole public fright thing has reminded some folks of 9/11, but I can go back a bit farther than that, when, possibly, people were being experimented on to see just how panicked they could be induced to feel. This was during the approach to New Year's eve, 1999 -- the Y2K scare.
I was personally responsible for the welfare of half a dozen computers in an Ottawa consulting firm. Though highly skeptical, I dutifully informed the company President that there was remedial software available for a price, and asked if he wanted me to take that route. He paused for a moment, no doubt assessing my tone of voice, and then firmly said "No".
On New Year's eve I shut down all the computers and went home. When the holiday was over, I returned to the office, booted up the work stations, and everything was normal.
Somebody got filthy rich off that scam, bilking companies out of millions, and to this day, I am skeptical of all panic news, including 9/11, A-234 AKA Novichok and the current Covid-19 fright which some people are, not surprisingly, calling C-9/11, and I have to admit that the intimidating effect on the population is pretty much the same.
Omigawd, Tom Hanks and his wife have come down with it! (Globe & Mail).
How convincing is that, eh? The guy's an actor. So is Justin Trudeau (he was so good at it that he had a job teaching it!). And for that matter, so is Boris Johnson and most politicians you're ever going to meet!
As far as I'm concerned, since the stats are much lower than in the regular flu season, and pretty much only the already-compromised are reportedly dying from it, then it's just another version of the annual flu.
Check out what Dr. Wodarg said about how the flu has to upgrade itself every year because people build immunity to the previous version.
Thankfully, the Globe article about the Hanks confirmed that:
It's abysmally clear that, as in the Y2K scare, corporations stand to benefit hugely from this manufactured crisis at the expense of the ordinary population -- and aspersions cast on China (as Novichok was erroneously blamed on Russia) suggest it may well be simply yet another version of economic warfare.
I'm not alone in my suspicions. Take your pick of the multitude of op-eds confirming them.
Looks like it began with Trump in March of 2018. (NewYorkPost)
You can be sure that Trump, not being any kind of intellectual whatsoever, didn't dream this up all by himself. But apparently severe financial penalties against China were not enough for the US.
One has to wonder if some American military lab didn't come up with a new version of the old virus. Why? Well, because something equally vile has been tried before. Remember this? ---
