Coronavirus Insanity: Medieval Wine Windows Make a Comeback

Here’s a fresh round-up of coronavirus insanity . . .

1.  Medieval wine windows are making a comeback in Italy.  Those are small windows at shops and wineries where a person can hand someone outside a drink.  They got their start during the bubonic plague in the 1600s.

2.  31% of people say it’s been more than four months since they hugged someone they don’t live with.  21% say they hugged someone they don’t live with less than a week ago.  9% of people say they never hug anyone ever.

3.  If you had any sort of bad habit you were trying to break, the pandemic probably brought it storming back.  A new survey of 800 cigar smokers, most of whom were trying to quit, found they’re smoking more cigars during the pandemic.

4.  Some rich people have started buying second homes to use as an office.

5.  59% of Americans say they have no plans to travel internationally for their next trip, whenever it might be.

6.  Two students in Georgia who shared pictures of their crowded high school online say they’ve been suspended because of it.
