No lines to Starbucks, etc. We were likely in the safest environment outside of home. No crowds at all to be seen.

Meanwhile people were jumping over themselves for toilet paper at Superstore crowding themselves like sardines prior to any sanitary measures that we have now. I expect lots of the community spread occurred there in those horrible and unsanitary conditions with people sweating themselves in fear.

I expect the malls to be extremely quiet. The herd mentality of morons tend to congregate together, right now it's at the parks because it's seen as safe.
I hope you are correct but back in early March, people and especially kids hadn't been barricaded for months.

I had to drive around an hour ago, streets looked quite busy. People are itching to go somewhere, anywhere.

Honestly seems much safer than almost any pandemic activity that panicked people have been doing.

I count 8 people in this picture (9 if you count the Nam guy)



Let's do a people count for these ones.







And the same ones who yell at malls opening and panic buying are going here to practice social distancing outdoors.





I will take my mall over those people.

Those Costco pictures could have been taken any day pre-covid as well. You are correct, even though you have to wait outside for a while right now, the Costco experience once inside is way nicer than it has ever been.

Propaganda of what? When did I ever say those grocery photos are from now?

They were from mid March when panic was at its peak, when 'concerned people' about the pandemic starting hoarding. I'm showing the hypocrisy of the herd. I can tell you for a fact malls looked pretty much like the photo I posted, while those crowds were herding themselves over each other.

The parks are from Vancouver from Sunday. The crowd that causes the herd always think alike, and why I am saying malls are quite safe right now contrary to herd belief, precisely because the herd avoids it.

There's this herd belief that this



is safer than this



And the people herding in parks right now are the same people who panic bought shoulder to shoulder without masks in mid March.

I'm simply stating that I expected malls to be empty based on herd thought and I was correct.

Looks pretty crowded to me especially in terms of a pandemic state...compressed perspective or not and regardless if people are not breathing down each other. There are a lot more people out there than at the mall, which is my point.

All I stated is I expected malls to be near empty and not the crowded disease fest it is expected, and used examples of safe so called 'social distancing' that is deemed ok with the quickest google search. There's several people screaming on twitter and facebook about the malls and the 'insane' lineups.

I should have just left all photos out of the post if they were going to be scrutinized just for the sake of scrutinizing.

I was out getting some gas today, and I thought I'd seen just about every screwed up way to uselessly wear a facemask wrong that there was...

The guy wearing it so that it covered his NOSE ONLY proved me wrong...
