Dude is casually slaying life and seems to be having a great time doing so. Do you want me to just send you an email when he’s 1000+ and spare you the anguish of his struggles?

on a similar note, i've been thinking the last few days that this lockdown situation is a prime opportunity for pro players to create content, post tons of videos, and try to get some new social media followers.

if i were a touring pro i would be setting up doubles matches, 1 disc challenges, team challenges, etc with as many different players as possible. with all sports being cancelled, there are lots of eyes searching for something to stare at and the smart opportunist should be pumping out as much content as possible.

JVD said on the smashcast tonight that they got around 2000 subs after Brodie was announced. I'm sure some, if not even a lot of those weren't just for him. He said they were around 6500 total subs. That's a lot more than I was expecting for sure and the season was just getting started.

Young people are rearly getting sick. Maybe ban crowds, but there was no reason to stop the season.

Panic.

It does give Brodie time to hone his skills.

The ban was as much about the young, healthy players acting as carriers, as it is about protecting them from getting sick. Players would travel, stay in hotels, come in contact with tournament and video representatives. Those reps would interact with one another....

Anyone not understanding this premise needs to spend some time reading up on the entire pandemic. Sorry for being cryptic, but folks not taking a few minutes to understand the pandemic process, simply puts many folks at risk of death. Again, sorry for the melodrama, but this is the world we live in now. You can feel fine, spread the virus to hundreds... including many very high risk individuals, who don't have the immuno-ability to overcome the illness.

Just pretend you have the virus. Stay away from everyone. You don't have to panic, hoard, and stay inside. Just stay away from people. Assume that every person you come within six feet of, for the next 14 days, is catching the virus from you, and vice versa.

This type of thinking is what will make this all worse for everyone.

I work in the medical system. It is way too late in the game for a quarantine to work.

Don't panic. Fear is the mind killer.

Fear also lowers your immune system.

If you work in the medical field than you should know a quarantine isn't meant to stop the spread, it's meant to substantially slow down the spread while hopefully giving local resources enough time to more effectively battle the situation.
