Increasingly more locations that draw massive congregations of individuals, like workplace buildings, faculties, eating places, leisure facilities, and vacationer points of interest, are briefly closing their doorways amid the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19.
Which, initially, is an excellent factor.
Let’s make one factor tremendous clear right here earlier than we proceed: coronavirus isn’t any fucking joke, and the most effective factor you are able to do on your personal sake and the sake of actually everybody else on the planet is self isolate. When you have the choice to, work at home. Train in your front room as an alternative of the fitness center. Don’t go to a bar, drink by your self in your sofa like a goddamn grownup. STAY. THE FUCK. INSIDE.
Whereas self isolation is the neatest and most accountable transfer, it does include its personal downside.
Particularly, what the hell are you going to do with your self?

It is a secure area. That’s in all probability not gonna occur. So once we’ve plowed via all the great shit on Netflix and reorganized our kitchen cabinets six occasions, what are we to do??
People — I offer you, marble racing.

And they’re DAMN GOOD athletes, okay!
