Quick Tumblr Thread Shows Random Animals Coming Into Towns During Quarantine

There's no doubt that cities and people have changed the way animals interact with their environment. With a lot of cities urging people to stay inside, things are changing again.  For some animals, the lack of people walking around is more reason than ever to start exploring. For other animals that depend on tourists to feed them, the lack of tourists has them looking elsewhere for food. Things can change fast, it's like some junk out of I Am Legend. Different people have dealt with various quarantines differently, like tweeting funny quarantine journal updates or getting revenge on toilet paper hoarding Karens.

Matt Colvin thought it would be a good idea to get the jump on everyone's fears surrounding coronavirus by cornering the local market on cleaning products and flip them at an increased price. Since that's basically illegal, he'll luckily probably end up giving it away. Watch those gears in his head grind to a halt when the reporter tries to coax an apology out of him.

People's Absurd Journal Entries From Self-Quarantine

People are taking to Twitter to share their "journal entries" amidst this self-quarantined time. The resulting insights reflect the wide range of emotions that encircle self-isolation. It can be a strange time. Maybe one of self reflection, and where you are almost forced to slow everything down to such a point where you can find yourself evaluating how you got to where you are; and ultimately, maybe identify what is important to you.

We're all following Coronavirus to some degree, and we're all mostly aware of basic hygiene like washing our hands a lot, coughing into our elbows and not touching our eyes, noses and mouths, but evidently that's harder to do than people think. Here's a Washington Post super cut of various officials touching their faces moments after telling people not to.
