Sometimes I just look at my siblings and wonder what the hell is wrong with them.
They are extremely intelligent and capable human beings…
For the most part. And then there are particular areas of life where I have no plan what they are thinking or doing. They make really stupid decisions based on avoiding their problems and it is strenuous for me to respect their preference for ignorance over making informed decisions. This is why I was extremely aggravated with my sibling Last yearwhen he decided he was going to hop on a plane and take a trip to a warmer weather conditions, then don’t get me wrong, the outdoor air temperature around here is not great. It has been bitterly cold, windy, and snowing for numerous weeks already. Nobody is cheerful with being perpetually chilled. I don’t love the feeling of our forced air furnace running non-stop, either. However, I also guess better than to jump on a stuffy, unventilated aircraft with our new situation with the virus pandemic. When I tried to talk to my sibling about the dangers of taking this trip to a warmer weather conditions I was shocked with his response. He looked at me innocently and recommended that aircrafts really have some of the highest quality indoor air, right? No… those metal tubes that fly through the sky have rudimentary ventilation systems with basic air filters. Otherwise, they are circulating the same indoor air that almost everyone has been breathing for hours on end. There is no fresh air, there is no HEPA air filtration system, and there is no UV disinfection to eradicate viruses. Why on Earth would you assume that this was a smart idea?
