We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

A public service announcement….

Washing your hands must be done properly, and technique matters. Observe…

You are welcome.

    Thank you!
    With some effort, i focused on the hands, and noticed that she does not wash between her fingers. That, i am told, is bad practice.

    I also note that that took 21 seconds, excluding time to rinse. If that is what they mean by a 20 second wash, it should be made explicit.
    I myself am flexible: after going outdoors or to the toilet, or after doing some house cleaning, or before preparing food or eating, i take more than 20 secs.
    But i also wash my hands when it is less critical, and in this case i do not wash the back of my hands, or between my fingers, since they are presumably still clean.

    I’ve been told that keeping one’s blood alcohol level above 0.010% will kill the virus.

    In the interests of science, I will now commence testing.

    Bobby: i have been testing it for weeks, and it seems to work.

    For those who could use another smile – here’s someone who is obviously going to struggle with the whole ‘social distancing’ concept:

    I couldn’t see her hands for some reason after the first few seconds yet they seemed right there in the beginning before it started. It must be some kind of optical illusion.

    Bit sexist / heteronormative isn’t it?

    Shouldn’t there be an equivalent video of a suitably buff person of diverse ethnic, religious and sexual origin who identifies as non-female washing his/her/their/xer hands for the guidance of ladies, the gayers and those who identify as anything other than stale, male and pale.

    For Odin’s sake, WHERE IS THE DIVERSITY?

    You’ll never attract the millennial audience with this sort of misogynistic content.

    That was not long enough, there was little chance I could sing Happy Birthday twice in that time. Then again perhaps I sing too slowly because I lost concentration.

  • John Galt (March 21, 2020 at 7:06 am) has somewhat anticipated my thoughts. This approach implies that men are naturally less scrupulous about hygiene than women. This obvious bit of patriarchal denial that gender is merely a social construct is then made the justification for providing this sort of male-oriented motivation to watch a video of a women acting in her traditionalist role of attending to hygiene – and arguably in another traditional role as well. (Each hand of political correctness washes the other.)

    There is of course a traditionalist patriarchal-style criticism to be made:

    If the young lady were a little more modestly dressed, perhaps the official aim of the video would be better achieved – but as any slut-walk feminist knows, that too is merely a sign of prejudice.

    I’ve been assured that a minimum 60% alcohol-by-volume is required. I do _not_ advise testing the effect of seeking this blood ratio. As with the lockdown, stimulus and etc., this curative measure could be worse than the disease.

    OTOH perhaps fewer people would watch the video.

    Instructions unclear … nipples now soapy.

    I’m feeling more handsy already.

  • APL

    Just dropped by to make sure I fully understand the methodology of hand washing.

  • Not sure

    I would just like to thank the young lady for the valuable demonstration.
