Howdy ya'll bums. How is the year 2020 treating you? Is it symbolism at work that in the year of the rat we have a worldwide pandemic underway? It's not the rat's fault. I'm certain that many of you are catching on to what is underway; the world as we humans experience it, is undergoing great changes. Things are never going back to the way things were. Pre 2020 civilization has become ancient history. Krakatoa rumbles as US fighter jets intercept Russian war planes flying into our airspace, as Taiwan fighter jets Intercept Chinese warplanes, as US Navy destroyers pass through the straits of Taiwan in view of the Chinese navy which is conducting exercises a few waves out. Of course the thoughtful Russians are merely checking on our well being as the Chinese are checking on Taiwan as good neighbors do in times like these, offering chicken noodle soup and other remedies and comforts. Yet, those activities happen all the time and will be looked upon with nostalgia, looking back at pre 2020 life. How many have lost their jobs? Well, I thinks economies will rethink things and bring industries back closer to local. It won't be the locals returning to work in many cases; industries will expedite restructuring in automation. Robots don't catch illness like humans are prone to do. We should all Pat ourselves on the back the way we entered into lockdown to ward off the pestilence at hand. Social distancing is here to stay in our post 2020 world. Brick and mortar businesses are going to become ruins. Delivery of goods to our doors , ordered online, is how it gets done now. Thank goodness 5G is at the ready! The tape markers on dollar store floors, the glass barriers at checkout. They will be refined and upgraded, they won't be going away. Virtual reality is coming into its own now, rest easy, you can hardwire yourself into the matrix. Right now you don't need a red pill or a blue pill to know what's afoot. A couple years from now pre 2020 civilization will seem some mythical distant dream. A fairytale. I won't keep adding on, I leave you bums space here for that. I told myself after my 2016 thread was locked after creating no small ruckus here, and the myriad following threads that altered the site for many~that I'd leave that sorta stuff alone. Hey hey here we are. Tricksters operate along the boundary lines ya know. As I type this a coyote just picked up a cigarette butt off the pavement here, not sure how he lit it, but there he goes trotting along puffing on a stogie. I implore the powers that be on this forum to allow this thread to continue, that othes may rebut or add to its message. This is in fact a very Spiritual time. One that demands attention, reflection, and some platonic affection for your neighbors and fellow bums. I am merely a harbinger of the portent. Or not! Share your thoughts about our current situation at hand; where do we go from here?!
