Since the global pandemic, we've learned a lot about some of the people around us...


Such as the fact that they don't believe in science or facts. Though they use science to get through their daily lives (internet, transportation, medication, etc.), somehow, part of the population is convinced that the virus is a conspiracy created just to inconvenience them.

We're all familiar with such folks. That's why Redditor u/yenake asked, "What is the dumbest Coronavirus theory you heard from someone?"

20. Follow the money...

That it was invented by anyone. You're a ****ng idiot if you're suggesting people are out here bioengineering diseases in secret and also not selling a cure that works.

I never heard the melanin theory....

I just remember early on when cases were still low there were black people who truly believed they couldn't get it because they have more melanin in their skin...and now the black community unfortunately has some of the most cases so look how that turned out

Reversable masks!

That wearing the mask blue side out protects others, while wearing the white side out protects yourself.

The one thing leaders will cooperate on

That viruses in general don't exist and that Corona was invented to take away fundamental rights in my country. Sure, the countries in the world can never agree on anything, but suddenly they can all work together and fake a global pandemic to take away rights from people in one country.

Viruses aren't homophobic

Hey, remember that priest that said Coronavirus is God's punishment for the gays. And then he caught it.

If he truly believes what he said, the only logical conclusion must be that he's gay.

Everyone needs to wear a mask

That it's a conspiracy to kill off black people by restricting our breathing with the masks, and that all white people are in on it.

Still waiting on that Rapture

In my moms words "Coronavirus was created by the shadow elite and as agents of the devil And bIg pharma they're going to make billions of dollars off the vaccine and the vaccine, which is synonymous with the mark of the beast, will contain bio chips,poison, and gene altering compounds that will fill our bodies with cancer all while making us their slaves and we will suffer for the remainder of our time on earth until the rapture begins and we are sentenced to hell on earth."

Stay away from my knee fluid

That doctors made up Covid-19 so they could steal synovial fluid off people and sell it in the black market. Just a drop of this fluid is worth billions, and all medical staff are out to lie to you ate steal your knee synovial fluid.

The aliens did it

My cousin said that the reason the virus started was due to the space defense system failing to stop an alien from reaching Earth.

Some presidential advice

You should inject yourself with cleaning supplies to ward away covid.

Thanks Donald, that's really helpful. What should if there's a fire? Open all the windows and doors, and wait inside for help?

The world doesn't revolve around you

That it doesn't exist because "I don't know anyone who has it"

platypus_pine68

I had a few customers say something similar. "I've never met someone that had it." You can imagine their surprise when I said "well, now you have." The responses were everything from incredibly dismissive to revulsion to genuine fear.

Phones aren't even that reliable

Wire inside masks (the one that on certain masks you have to push down to make tighter over your nose) is connected to 5G towers and is making the coronavirus worse. Coworker was dead serious, too.

wesley4122

That's incredible tech if you can get reliable connections from stuff in a 5-pack at the dollar store. Wish Sprint was that reliable.

ThisMeansWarm

Spoiler - there's no chip

One of my cousins told me that 5G chips are directly inserted in the masks offered by institutions and you get directly infected by wearing the masks.

I asked him to prove it to me by showing me a 5G chip in one of the masks.

They were a no show

In March my country's health minister basically said that Corona will all blow over by April. When asked what will be different in April, he responded something to the effect of "The messiah will come in April".

Spoiler alert: no messiah. (I could be somewhat foggy on the details.)

Alchemical_Toilet

Where'd they get that idea?

Coronavirus can spread through in-game voicechat

NotDaWeed

Had a friend hang up on me when I told her I tested positve

I'll take my chances

some people seriously believe that corona virus can be cured by drinking cow urine

redditusser1788

I'd rather take my chances with the virus.

How to lose a crush immediately 

A guy I knew and liked told me to my face that 5G towers were giving people Covid. Nothing I said would shift him In that belief. In the end I just told him that was what Flatards would say and he took massive offence. Haven't seen him since

pinkvinny

The source does not exist

That 'COVID-19' stands for 'China Originating Viral Infectious Disease - (batch) 19.' WHO confirmed it and everything apparently. No sources available when I asked for them.

Drink your beers in peace

You can get corona from the beer corona people actually believed and tried to ban the beer

connaman07

If the Corona beer company went out of business because of human stupidity I would literally design a rocket and **** off into space somewhere else.

People Share The Things They Find Completely Overrated

For the life of me, I can't understand how anyone could still watch The Walking Dead. I just checked and the damn thing has had 11 seasons. 11 seasons!

Can you imagine?

People enjoy watching characters follow a set of train tracks for an entire season I guess. (For context, I made it to the beginning of the seventh season before I threw in the towel, and it was really testing my patience well before then.)

But there's so much more out there that's equally overrated. Television is the least of our problems.

People Explain Which Behaviors Are Associated With Men But Actually Everyone Does Them

There are things men do that easily annoy the opposite sex, simply by being a guy.

"That's such a dude move," or "typical male," can be examples of snide remarks made following disapproving gender-specific behavior.

It still amazes me that we live in a world where people are charged for drinking water. Water is a necessity! I have a lot of disdain for companies like Nestle, which siphons millions of gallons of water from entire communities only to sell it back to them.

What the hell is up with that? Does that not sound dystopian to anyone else? Okay, then. Water should be free – this should not be controversial.

"You can make one thing/service free for the entire planet. What are you making free?"

People Share TV Shows From Their Childhood That No One Seems To Remember
Hanna-Barbera Cartoons

When I was a kid, I would occasionally watch this show called Big Bag. It went off the air more than 20 years ago and it seemed to only play at five or six in the morning. If I happened to wake up early, I'd catch it. It was targeted toward preschool viewers and was fun and silly, a partnership between Cartoon Network and what is now the Sesame Workshop.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only person who remembers it existed. But I'm not the only one with this kind of dilemma.
