Tomorrow, 4th July, England is reopening all the bars!
After months of abstinence it is expected that half the nation will be
seriously inebriated by around 4 pm. Survivors will stagger to music
and night club bars for the evening rave party. Masks very optional,
as shouting over loud music will be required. Of course it is well-known
that consuming large quantities of alcohol is very helpful in following
complicated rules about social distancing, hand-washing, no hugging, etc.
Either the virus has disappeared or the results will be very predictable.
