And people say I'm crazy for thinking this is the apocalypse. I'm sorry, a world this stupid isn't fit for a crisis of this magnitude.



well, if you masturbate more, you wash your hands more. hopefully.

Sir, the quarantine units are slowly making their way. We must ensure the safety of our users since it can spread through the internet :p

It’s a virus but not that kind of virus


I'm surprised Trump didnt warn computer designers about the corona virus before warning everyone else. "Ladies and gentlemen, the coronavirus is a very bad virus. I know alot about viruses. I was watching p- I mean I was doing very important work, and all of the sudden this alert popped up on my screen saying 'FBI alert.' Then my computer crashed and I screamed probably the loudest I ever have. We cant let that happen to anyone ever again, so I'm taking the corona virus very seriously. What's that? It's not a computer virus? What?! Oh shit!"

At least hopefully this leads to an increased sense and care for bio-security in the future. And also rethinking health care and other important things really.

Hello there, welcome to my thoughts.
I also control puppets in Thaecia and Forest, so you may know me by those puppets.
Yes, my nation does represent a good chunk of my views, deal with it.
I still like K-Pop, no, I am not one of those very annoying stans. Anyways, please watch Day6.
Soups are among my favourite kinds of food.
Am too lazy to deal with a bunch of canon stuff, expect them to be completed never.
Civ 6's Frontier Pass seems very exciting, maybe we'll finally get a Filipino civ?
