Believe me, goats are a close second, bunch of head butting psychopaths.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

We have some smartphone zombies they cant keep social distancing. More like bumper cars.

If you're ever gonna find them, it's in Essex.

It has a lot of good points...and a few bad ones as well...but doesn't everywhere?

Apparently the biggest problem at the moment is lots of "coffin dodgers" (sorry for the totally non-PC terminology but that is how it was reported to me) still wandering around during the day and ignoring the social distancing advice.

Whereas the word from London is that it's gangs of youths wandering around together...go figure.

@PhilC To be fair, many people in Essex are iPhone or Android zombies, so it's actually a bit weird that they are all at home. Well, mostly, apart from the toilet roll hoarders (Lot of zombie crossover here) and those who apparently "Aren't going to get it 'cuz I'm young and fit"

This is why I liked social isolation before coronavirus, just too much trouble to be had for somebody of my skills when there are a$$holes about.....
