Oh my... I guess I'm just not up on all the coolest ways to kill people... too late to learn now I guess, eh?

But you've got this

Maybe not arrest put put in isolation/secure unit all the elderly
You see almost all the deaths are elderly who are less immune to this

Would it not be the best bet to just isolate them, and then we have far less to worry about as most younger people can cope with the virus

I don't need to be "secured" .
I can "secure" myself very well , thank you.
Let the silly young folk do the worrying and giving themselves ulcers .
Us old folks have wisdom.
We do not crawl under our beds and cry at the drop of a pin.

That's not all! I have Quarantinaritas too!!!

They're just like regular margaritas, but you drink 'em in self-isolation.

There are 50 million old people in the usa.

How do you suppose we find and then force them to isolate?
Where would we safely isolate that many old and sick people?
Would they come willingly?


i know it sounds horrible but its the only way
are there any islands to drop them all off on


You can't really.

Many of them need care from younger caregivers. How do you keep the younger caregivers healthy to keep the elderly safe from illness if you only isolate the elderly but let everyone else carry on?

Not to mention, just because the elderly are the ones with greatest risk of death doesn't mean they are the only ones who develop severe illness when they get it. Younger people will do that to, they're just less likely to die from their cases of severe illness. They still need the same hospital care.

Isn't Florida basically a prison for the elderly?

It's a prison for everyone. I spent 5 years there, I know.

No worries -- as long as ya got 'em!

I would have offered to share, but, well, self-isolation and social distancing stuff you know... although... now that I think about it, alcohol is an antiviral, so we would actually be self-sterilizing as we are self-medicating, right?

Nah, they have freedom of movement, scurrying around on their mobility scooters by hoards at 4PM for dinner.

...at 4mph down the main streets.

Yep! As Reagan said,

I like your thinking. Maybe we can get them to dig their own grave first and then dust themselves with lime before climbing in.


Wrap 'em all in their own toilet paper.
Most of them are half-mummified already.

Just let us hunt them down for sport, we can stake out well-known geezer haunts like bingo, the Golden Corral buffet and their grandkid's homes.

Pretty sure at the end of all this most of the boomers will be just fine, LOL in fact if we can hole up and hunker down for 4-6 weeks all the Millenials, gen X's, etc we probably off a good portion of themselves by other means. Then we can crawl out repopulate and rebuild society. As my Dad(RIP) always used to tell me as he bragged about his grandkids, Intelligence sometimes skips a generation.

As an 'old person' I'd like to say I don't want to be banished to Gods' Waiting room. I'm terrified of all the alligators and snakes, so I'd find a way to break quarantine.

Logistically, cruises should have been stopped after the first Cv19 positive, but weren't. I've always wanted to go on a cruise. I bet they'd happy to take all us old folks out to sea, and could just dump the bodies of those who succumbed to the virus in the ocean.

Dinning, drinking and dancing my way into the afterlife on an all-expenses paid cruise sounds good to me.
