Kind’a makes some whacky sense, and don’t rule it out, these folks are determined to kill themselves and take some of us with them.

I hear the milk crate challenge is effective against covid, but it only works properly if you stack the milk crates 20 high in the middle.

I’d recommend mercury.

I guess we finally know who’s been falling for all those ‘One Weird Trick!’ ads year after year after year after year.

I would be tempted to suggest that they try gargling with bromine, but they are dumb enough to actually try it and also force it on their children and other dependents.

Billy was a covidiot, but Billy is no more, for what he thought was H2O was H2SO4.

I keep thinking about the deaths from covid, and the persistent health problems people are going to have from covid, but I tend not to think about how many people are poisoning themselves with bogus covid prophylactics and treatments. Most of those will result in minor issues, but some people are going to permanently injure themselves as a result. The way the survivors of covid will be fucked up is going to be extremely diverse as a result… and that’s not even getting into the ways we’ll be psychologically damaged as a result of covid, lockdowns, grief and the grifters (political and medical) that are flourishing as a result.

Technically it does work. COVID can’t get any worse than dead, can it?

Having worked with straight bromine, I am pretty sure that someone would need to roll a 1 on their wisdom check to try and a nat 20 on their fortitude check to succeed. That stuff fumes like a motherfucker and I would never even think about cracking it open outside of a fume hood with the sash way down.

We already know that they have rolled a 1 on their wisdom checks, so we are already half way there.
