Well, this is uncomfortable. But I suppose someone was bound to do it.
It's probably hard for a theme park fans to look at the Covid-19 case graphs that we've seen for so many states and countries and not see a roller coaster track in those data lines. You start at ground level, then ride a big hill up to a drop on the other side.
So it was inevitable that someone would feed that data in roller coaster simulation game to let us see what those data curves would feel like as a virtual roller coaster ride. Cue up the TikTok.
The descriptions cut deep.
- Super wacky build up
- Really Fast
- NICE drop!
- Unpredictable Build Up
- Less scary drop
- Cool and wiggly
- Fastest of the bunch!
- Ridiculously tall ppl love that
- Help! How do we get down?
How do we get down, indeed? Over the weekend, Florida set the all-time one-day record for most positive tests in a state, beating New York's record. As the heat goes up and more people seek relief in crowded indoor spaces, cases are rising across the south and west, where the weather's the hottest right now. (Northern, mountain and Midwest states - you're up in the fall, when the weather cools and you head inside.)
Turning the pandemic into the world's worst roller coaster ride might seem irreverent - 'cause it is - but if this is the stuff you need to see to put on a mask so that we can all get off this thing, well, here ya go.
0/10. Would not ride again.Tweet
