If you're wondering why Bernie Sanders hasn't done any better in this year's primaries, it's because young people are too busy doing this instead of thinking about politics.

I saw this comment elsewhere-but they will have the last laugh if it turns out that STD's cure Coronavirus.

What's especially scary about these spring breakers isn't what the idiots are doing to themselves but the fact that they're going home in a week to dozens of cities in many different states, and any of them could be contagious.

New T-shirt design: My son (daughter) went to Florida for spring break and all I got was the coronavirus.

This 100%.

Self-centered, oblivious pack of shitheads. Yeah, if they get the virus they'll likely survive it. So what do they care if they pass it along to the elderly or people with medical issues? They planning on giving a big hug and kiss to Gramma and Grampa when they get back? Although one benefit of losing some of these little assholes to the virus would be raising the collective IQ of Americans, it's not worth the potential misery and loss of life among the innocent and unsuspecting.

Maybe..MAYBE we're overreacting, although at this point it doesn't seem so, and I am already annoyed by the restrictions and loss of activities, but down the road I'd much rather be saying "I guess we didn't need to do all that" than "I WISH we had done that".

Does it make me a bad person that I want to ignore social distancing and put my fist into the faces of some of these morons? I could wear gloves.

I don't know if you have seen this yet, if not you will want to punch them even more.

Apparently, many young people are calling Coronavirus-"Boomer Remover."

That does indeed increase the desire on my part to do some reconstructive surgery upon their countenances.

USA Today wrote:New data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that among the roughly 12% of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. known to need hospitalizations, about 1 in 5 were among people ages 20 to 44. Anywhere from 14% to 21% of adults ages 20 to 44 with COVID-19 have been hospitalized, the CDC data estimates. Two to 4% of cases led to ICU admissions, and less than 1% were fatal.

Brady Sluder, the student who was the focus of the news coverage, has issued an apology on Instagram for his statements.
I'd like to take this time to own up to the mistakes I've made and apologize to the people I offended.
He may be young, but he already displays more maturity and humility than the President of the United States.

Parking lots at state beaches have now been closed, and many cities have followed suit. --Bob

I see no problem with the above beach scene. Beachgoers appear to practicing social distancing.

For their mental and physical health, people need to be able to go outside.

You must not be looking at the same beach I am. Assuming that the ones next to each other in the front are family members, you've still got a whole bunch of people towards the rear of the picture who are closer than six feet apart.

That's Huntington Beach. The weather has been rather chilly there in the past weeks. I doubt that's a current photo.
