Let’s Play: Spot the Deliberate Mistake

Let’s play a game of ‘Spot the Deliberate Mistake’. Check out the completely insane contradictions in the government’s lockdown rules. Furthermore, if you believe all this virus bullshit, then this post will expose the enormous and effectively guaranteed widespread public health risks involved.

A Walk on the Beach or Takeaway Junk Food?

Several weeks back the authorities started to impose a staged lockdown of society here in Australia. Before (some) beaches were closed the first things to go were the pubs, restaurants and cafes. In other words, they do not want people socialising in the same space. Initially restaurants reduced their seating allocation and spaced out tables according to government “social distancing” guidelines. Then they were told to close their seating areas. That did not mean that you could not buy coffee and prepared food however. For some inexplicable reason the government decided to allow cafes and eateries to continue to sell their products – but only to take-away.

It is now illegal to walk on a beach in certain parts of Sydney but takeaway fast food joints are still legal. Which do you think could cause the spread of a virus the most? It is obvious right?

A little historical context.

If you think this is all just another uneducated rant, then you do not know your history.

They keep telling us that many people may be asymptomatic right? This means that they have, and indeed carry, the disease but they show no symptoms and it doesn’t affect them. One of the most infamous examples of asymptomatic people came to be known as ‘Typhoid Mary’.

Mary Mallon worked as a cook for two periods; firstly between 1900 and 1907, then again between 1910 and 1915. Wherever she worked there were outbreaks of typhoid fever. She is believed to have infected 51 people with typhoid and at least three of those died. She was the first person in the United States identified as an asymptomatic carrier of the disease. Because she persisted in working as a cook, she was twice forcibly quarantined by authorities, and died after a total of nearly three decades in isolation.

Ironically, she died in quarantine of pneumonia, one of the causes of death brought on by flu viruses – just like coronavirus. When I was a lad, “Typhoid Mary” was a widely used colloquial term for anyone who, knowingly or not, spreads disease or some other undesirable thing.

So, please tell me. If things are supposed to be bad enough to force people to stay in their homes, how can allowing fast food and takeaways from restaurants be a good idea?

Do you Deliver?

I have just returned from a quick trip to the local shopping centre where there are many fast food outlets. While people wander about doing their shopping and making some effort at ‘social distancing’, there are others doing the opposite. Outside one of the more famous fast food joints the delivery boys and girls assemble waiting for their next job. I counted at least six of them in a small close group standing or sitting around their bicycles. Another great example of how takeaway food is helping to stop the spread of this virus? (If you believe in all of this of course – as I keep saying.)

Come to think of it; forget this virus. Since when did we need all of these delivery cyclists? How did we manage without them? Yet another crazy thing in this modern world. ‘Social distancing’ aside, I think these people just annoy me.

Surfing?

They say surfing is like an addiction. Well, surfers in this part of Australia need to get their regular fix from Dr. Pacific. The same is true for the keen swimmers. But despite the official messages telling us to stay healthy the authorities don’t want people doing their regular sporting routines.

Healthy eating and a good exercise regime. That is the kind of advice we should expect right? Especially now. But the reality is the polar opposite. Stay off the beaches and out of the water you fit people! Oh, and while you’re at it, go and buy some junk food from McDonald’s, Hungry Jacks or wherever.

This farce is clearly (mostly) about control. It has very little to do with the public’s health and fitness nor the spread – or containment – of any virus.

Ask yourself: Do these contradictions make any sense? Is this takeaway thing a mistake? And if so, is it deliberate?
