  1. This is so fucking dumb. I hope people aren't taking these "predictions" seriously. The Simpsons one is so vague, all Hanks says is he wants to be left alone. OMG PROOF CORONAVIRUS! OMG PROOF HE'S BEING QUARANTINED!

  2. Of course he has the pyramid with the eye over it in the middle of his chest. Not the type of markings your gonna want to have when shtf

  3. Wow, Tom Hanks son looks and sounds like a douche. I’m sure Tom Hanks said he’s not ‘tripping’ about it. 🙄

  4. Things or ideas which would otherwise be seen as bizarre, vulgar, undesirable or impossible are inserted into films in the realm of fantasy. When the viewer watches these films, his/her mind is left open to suggestion and the conditioning process begins. – Alan Watts.

  5. Yeah all the “virus” will disappear because it’s man made and controlled by the government they’re not fooling me

  6. to the med. professionals, gov. agencies and youtubers: it is (vastly) SAFER AND CHEAPER TO ERR ON THE SIDE OF CAUTION, therefore please "simplify" by stating clearly and without confusing caveats or digressions:

    1 – call it a asymptomatic disease i.e. say it plainly you can be infecting people without showing symptoms i.e. you might not be noticing any fever, stuffy nose, muscle pain etc.

    2 – the virus can reach 5 feet (1.5 meters) i.e. a 'safe distance' is close to 6.5 feet (2 meters) away from other people not wearing standard protective masks nor protection glasses.

    3 – the virus will stay on surfaces for 3 whole days, i. e. assume surfaces are contaminated for 100 hours. Scrub it with water and soap.

    4 – say it plainly contagion factor is high and assume FOUR people will get it for each carrier of the disease.

    5 – prevention is much preferred to treatment (say that clearly): the disease is brutal and can leave lasting damage and hospitals all over the planet are already understaffed, unequipped and unprepared.

    6 – you are infectious for more than a month. Up to five weeks is the time you might be infected (and infecting) from 1st contact to fully get rid of the disease.

    7 – testing is timely and costly: don't overburden health services by insisting to be tested i.e. If you have the symptoms assume you have the infection unless you are in a risk group and absolutely need to know to keep others in a risk group safe.

    8 – there are two strains of the virus, possibly more (today is 17th March 2020)

    9 – a vaccine is at least 1.5 years away and might be not be possible at all if a quicker vaccine makes the infection worse.

    10 – the worldwide infection is staying, we are forever changed for years not weeks. The social and economical consequences will last longer. This is a war, and we need more compassion towards each other to win it. Don't wait for you government to start helping your neighbours and endangered people.

    DISCLAIMER: the above statements are not fully accurate – and they are not meant to create more panic – but any rounding up or mild exaggeration is aimed at slowing the fast spread of this disease. Yes, there are behavioural implications and associated costs in any innacuracies but not following this is far worse and opens us up to the outliers that will keep it spreading even faster. The costs to humanity will be worse than any exageration listed above.

  7. The trilogy noble by justin Cronin. There is an outbreak which was from experimentation to try to cure all illness/create immorality. Which all happened with scientists when on an expedition to south America (Bolivia) and encounter some infected bats in some cave in the jungle.
    The infected bat part, is what got me. Of course this book has not a good out come but I'm sure we aren't going to be turning to blood sucking creature and start the apocalypse.

  8. if it is a script, Illuminati, not-coincidence, programming, planned… – it would NOT be shown in a cartoon, for crying out loud.

  9. I swear to god ET has the dumbest garbage on tv, I hope this virus wipes out all the stupid ass people in Hollywood like Carbi B and the Kardashians. Smh

  10. people are so fucking dumb, they actually believe that the simpsons are part of a conspiracy😭😭😭😭

  11. I know simpsons predict a lot of things but seriously just because Tom Hanks says “ if you see me in person ….please leave me be” doesn’t mean it’s anything to do with virus or pandemic. It’s a bit of a far stretch to call out the simpsons predicting a pandemic over that.

  12. Hold up their son has the pyramid and eye tattooed on his chest but yet a illuminati Show predicted he’s dad being quarantined 🤔🤦🏾‍♀️🦠

  13. It's funny how things we watch is telling us what's going on and whats going to happen in the future. The Simpsons, 20th century (2020) Fox

  14. Sylvia brown? Lmao try scientists. Easy to make predictions when you listen to actual scientists warning us this would happen forever ago

  15. For simplicity's sake it's just like a jingle that sticks in your mind to buy soap and they sure must be selling a lot of it by now. Think of it is insider trading that's how the game works.

  16. Cardi B ion know if you want to move to antartica….is too close to the Artic Ocean which is reported to have 7 species of Chlamydia …id rather fight corona😶

  17. God loves us all. Turn from you wicked ways, repent, it's not too late. Stop believing everything you see with your natural eye. Satan came to steal, kill, and destroy. God is the one who has power over all even demons tremble before Him. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He loves us all and has your best interests at heart. No human, thing of this world like money, clothes, materialism will save you from what's to come. Please seek Jesus Christ who has died for all of us so that we may have intimate relationship with God. Stay safe out there!
