    Yep, except not really, since they still did so under the surface of society and ate rat burgers. And the movie ended with Stallone suggesting they stop the future vr shit and get dirty.

    Though it would be interesting to know wtf the sea shells did to clean ones ass at a time like this.

    This. It will all come back as before. More and more people are doing stuff online and that will continue to grow. The pandemic we have now, will not be the reason it will continue to grow. It's just a lot more convenient. And yes, the economy will recover and even stronger.

    We survived the Spanish Flu in 1918, which killed a estimate 50 - 60 million world wide and 675,000 in the US. Things where booming in the 1920's after it slowed down and the war was over.

    Economically I am pretty sure several well known retail brands, most of which are already struggling with the internet competition, won't come back.

    On a political note I don't think we will have the open borders (for westerners) as we did before, and even more restricted for citizens of less privileged countries.

    And on personal level I don't think we are going to go back to the handshaking rituals we used to have.

    Handshakes...because we ran out of toilet paper.
    Acquittal doesn't mean exoneration

    Hand shaking is definitely here to stay. Lots will be against it (like there is now) but it will still be the show of trust and respect it has been.

    Out though is retail only stores. If you're a business and have no online presence by now, you deserve to go bankrupt and lose everything.

    If human contact and mass public events didn't stop after... the black plague... the spanish flu... every other mass outbreak in human history... I doubt this will stop it.


    What's going to change in the long run? Hopefully the world's response to pandemics.

    What will hopefully never return due to this? Donald Trump as president.

    I'd expect pushback after the virus settles down in some form, there will be more of certain behaviors as people set out to show they can do those things.

    What I'd like to see? I'd like to see useful data that might help address climate change, changes to improve social support including medical care and working conditions, a greater effort to do something about the f'n flu and I think I'll pause their before I go wall o'text.

    Instead, what I'll probably get is another lesson on just how hard it is to overestimate human stupidity as a factor in life.

    Employer skepticism about work from home in tech positions is likely to drop sharply.

    Open borders politics is effectively dead for a generation.

    Sadly, a bunch of my favorite hole in the wall bars. They're not capitalized for this kind of hit or sophisticated enough to deal with the federal government to find a solution.

    Other then small time stores, and people.
    Nothing is gonna change and you would be a fool to think otherwise with human history. The swine flu had killed thousands yet various protections were never implemented. China is still hosting wet markets.
    I mean for god sake people still think this damn virus only kills old people, think it’s a hoax or just don’t care either way.
    Hell afew people I know believe this virus is actually just a test to see how well the “true global elite” can control the actions of the people.

    Exotic species market, I mean China is going to permanently ban this.

    Also some small businesses, this recession caused by the virus will hurt small businesses growth too much.
