Speaking of germs
See below—the little buggers are still a threat.
Bryan Alexander, USA Today, wrote an amusing story on the cast of the new movie CONTAGION, starring Matt Damon.
They became so germ-conscious they could hardly make a move, much less a movie.
The movie features a woman eating nuts from a bowl in a bar and transmitting the crud that way. No one would touch nuts on the set.
The director said the movie would do for elevator buttons what Jaws did for swimming.
The consultant was Laurie Garrett, author of The Coming Plague. She would not hug or shake hands. “We have to observe social distancing,” she said.
The director got freaked about how many people had touched the camera.
They wiped down their hotel rooms, the remotes from the TVs.
Sometimes thinking is the worst impediment to life. Just sayin’.
