Mr. Tarantino speaks directly into the camera.

"I'm talkin'. Now let me ask you a question, Jules. When you drove in here, did you notice a sign out front that said, 'Dead latino storage?'"

<Voice off> "Jimmie ... "

"Answer the question. Did you see a sign out in front of my house that said, "Dead latino storage?"

<Voice off> "Naw man, I didn't."

"You know why ? I'll tell you why. 'Cos there ain't no fuckin' dead latinos here. There ain't no dead fuckin' niggers, or whites, or chinks, or any other fuckers. A total absence of dead fuckers lyin' in the yard, or in the street, or anywhere. So why you got your head up your ass on this Coronavirus shit ? Where are all these dead fuckin' bodies ? Nary a one. Ain't none in the streets, ain't none in the parks, sure as fuck ain't none in my yard. You see Mr. Wolf here ? Do ya ? No ya don't. That's 'cos Mr. Wolf ain't here. Mr. Wolf's on holiday, 'cos there ain't no shit for him to clean up. Now you quit whining, and stop drinking my fucking premium coffee, and you get out there and do whatever shit Marcellus got you on today. Jesus !"

       I'm not a fan of Tarantino.   

       He presents himself as creative and progressive, but really he's just pandering to sadism.   

       His USP is that he's good at judging which particular kinds of sadism he can get away with in contemporary Hollywood.

       // I'm not a fan of Tarantino. //   

       Don't worry, he's enough of a fan of himself to easily make up the deficit.

       What information does this convey to the public?
notexactly, Mar 22 2020
  

       "There are no dead people. Coronavirus is a con. Get on with your life".

       Oh, for fuck's sake.

       [marked-for-deletion] false information   

       Death rate of fuckers from covid19 isn't statistically distinct from that of the general population.

       // VAXINE//   

       "Vaccine" ?   

       There will never be one for coronavirus- like rhinovirus and influenza, due to the propensity for mutation - changing the antigen profile - a vaccine only works against one very specific strain. Even this one is already self-modifying as it propagates.

       //already self-modifying //   

       Mmm. Could we have source with that?
pertinax, Mar 24 2020
  

       Dr Francois Renault, a research scientist on infectious diseases. We will provide a link, but essentially the virus samples from Strasbourg and Grenoble are identified as Covid-19 by antigen reaction, but their RNA sequences are different. A vaccine fully effective against one sub-strain will only be partially effective against the other. Just like influenza.

       Thank you, (but sp. "Grenoble").
pertinax, Mar 24 2020
  

       Sp. fixed (cut-and-paste from email sent by a microbiologist working for Big Pharma, so not our fault).

       That's normal here. You'll be doing it yourself before long.   

       Then you can apply to join the Pedantry Police. You start as a Lance-Constable, but you can work your way up the ranks over time.

       Ed, mate, your postfix superscript has slipped .. should be "don’t*", not "*don’t" ...

       It does indeed; sadly, Albert Uderzo passed away only a few dys ago.
8th of 7, Mar 25 2020
  

       //sadly, Albert Uderzo passed away//   

       *Click*   

       I have just taken a photo of [8th] properly and respectfully lamenting the death of a great Frenchman. I shall keep it on file to embarrass him later.   

       You're going soft, [8th], and it's a great improvement.
pertinax, Mar 25 2020
  

       I wonder where [Edie] went. I hope she's OK.
pertinax, Mar 26 2020
  

       Likewise. An interesting contributor.   

       // You're going soft, [8th], and it's a great improvement //   

       You think so ? Gooood ..... gooooood .....   

       <Looks gloatingly at wall poster of Emperor Palpatine/>   

       Just lulling you into a false sense of security....

       This idea seems to lack the decorum I look for here. I hesitate to recommend anyone to consider the loosely moderated forums at "8kun.top", but in this case I suspect this idea would be well received over there.   

       Now if this idea had instead referenced "The Hitchhiker's Guide" by claiming that everyone in a telephone sanitizing or advertising executive type of job was staying indoors to avoid being eaten by "space coronavirus goats", because now that robots can do all jobs there's really not a need for population anymore, and that soon homes would run out of supplies and have to use leaves as currency to remain rich despite staying indoors not working, then I would upvote, because it would be funny and topical. I'm afraid this idea gets a [-] from me since I'm not laughing and the only innovation I see here is MFD gross-out meets MFD WINBI truthy news.
