  1. Not sure if this is just UK media sensationalism, but the UK is looking dumber and dumber by the minute

  2. If people don’t get their shit together, “bring out your dead” won’t be just a Monthy Pythons joke in a few weeks

  3. Same thing happened in Hong Kong a month ago. Initially everyone thought that everyone would be staying at home so everyone went to the countryside without a mask. It was more crowded than a shopping mall and social distancing was not maintained at all. So it’s a better idea to stay away from the countryside while this coronavirus disaster unfolds, especially during weekends

  4. I don’t think ‘run for the hills’ works in the current situation.

  5. I don’t understand if people in the UK just don’t give a fuck or they don’t see the news. Today Italy reported more than 700 deaths. Their entire healthcare system is failing.

    This is the example of what happens when shit gets out of control. But clearly people aren’t worried.

  6. *”Signs have been put up in Bala telling idiots to stay away”*

  7. This same thing is happening in Oregon. It’s gross. So many Washington and California plates to be seen clogging up the Columbia River Gorge and small coastal towns.

  8. Here in Quebec, we’re told not to move from one region to another. This should be a measure everywhere in order to make sure this type of stupid shit doesn’t happen.

  9. Anything too small for me to see can’t possibly hurt me.

  10. Good weather will be the worst thing for the UK right now.

  11. I live about 10 minutes from there, really stressing me out!

  12. This is happening all over the Bay Area too. I wake up and hike everyday at 5 am before going home and have been doing that before coronavirus and have continued after the SHIP order.

    Before, the trails were fairly empty on the weekdays but now the parking lots are all full by 11 am on a Thursday. I’ve started my mask while hiking because the number of people have increased.

  13. This is utter sensationalism.

    The paths on Snowdon are wide enough to follow the 2m rule. They wonts show you this but they will show you a rammed car park.

    Every fucking supermarket in the UK has a rammed car park ATM, but nope, let’s focus on an area the size of a small country and suggest everyone’s is fucking licking each other.

  14. I’m getting _so much_ ammunition these days for when I’m called an elitist when I point out that most people are fucking retarded.

  15. South Africa immediately closed nature reserves for this reason…

  16. Everyone wanted to isolate so they all went to the top of a mountain?? The same mountain!??

  17. in their defense, they are still typing out the social distancing guidelines in welsh. the estimated completion date is early 2022

  18. “Mountains”.

    Those are walkable hils.

  19. These are the people posting selfies of their “hiking” with a #socialdistancing hashtag.

  20. It’s ok, natural culling at its finest.

  21. This is what happens when you let the sheep think for themselves.
