  1. People have gained an average of 10 pounds since the beginning of the pandemic
  2. Social comity has frayed, the easy things that keep a society running, parking in handicapped spaces, smoking in non-smoking areas, glass bottles by the pool, etc.
  3. Delta 8 seems to be everywhere
  4. It takes a lot to get arrested these days
  5. Originality in tattoos is rare
