So bad. r/cursedcomments

I work with a bunch of 65 years olds and none of them were remotely concerned. The younger people were the most concerned. I said I was working from home and they only followed my lead when the Bay Area said don’t go to work idiots.

You do you. A lot Of people will not take this serious until several hundred people are dead.

You would think. But it seems like you’re using logic. Logic is not standard feature in Americans these days. And since cheap Chinese goods taught us that the cheapest way is the best, no parent has paid for the logic upgrade in a long time.

People are not going to take this seriously until someone they know has the disease. When that happens it is likely that they too have the disease.

The global death rate is 4%, Italy death rate is 8%. I would much rather be in the 4%. (Obviously I’d prefer 0% but even that ship has sailed here.)

Confused if parents want schools to reopen or not? I read so many posts here about how difficult it is to work full time and manage kids’ at-home schooling (I can’t even imagine!) so would assume that means parents want to reopen, but at the same time keep seeing a ton of backlash from parents in states who are pushing to reopen due to safety reasons. What’s the general consensus?

I’ve been having a super hard time concepting lately, especially knowing that the “concept” will mostly serve as a sticker to slap on the cover of a CVA and the top of a website. I feel like every pharma concept I’ve ever seen or created becomes so cheesy once it appears in tactics. Does anyone have any examples of HCP creative (non-DSA) that is both impactful and translates well into pharma tactics?

I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
