Spider-Man Fitness Challenge! Superhero Gear Test & Obstacle Course | KIDCITY

Spider-Man Fitness Challenge! Superhero Gear Test & Obstacle Course | KIDCITY


three four five what’s up everybody its kids city back
with another spider-man Fitness Gym now that it’s worn up it’s important for
everybody to get outside stretch your legs today the kids are competing in a
obstacle course designed to get them both kids will run two rounds and the
idea is on the second round to better their time so they’re competing against
themselves you guys ready to do it yeah in this obstacle the kids will have
seven different challenges they’ll start at the agility rings move through the
spider-man crawl ropes hop down the bouncer lane
bob and weave through the soccer cones and then successfully make a long soccer
goal before they measure their long jump which will earn them some bonus seconds
on their times now the kids aren’t competing against each other they are
competing against themselves so in round two they’ll have to push themselves just
a little bit harder and try to beat their own times to help them out they’ll
be testing out new lycra spider-man suits that are specifically designed for
athletes we’ll see if that helps them get better times first up is Ava you
wanna do some stretches gymnastics beam she fell all right here
we go round one ready she’s going through the spider-man crawl
to see what kind of time she can get now she’s gonna suit up what’s going on
what OSHA bugs that’s gonna those bugs are messing you up on your time get on
the bouncy ball and get it down girl okay she’s gonna go on to the bounce the
bounce lane see how she does this is this is a she’s doing good and now she’s
gonna move over to the weight training oh she’s picking up Beckett’s weights oh
my goodness one two three okay she just did three there sucker ball she’s got
she’s got that soccer ball she’s got a weave in and out of these cones here I don’t know what’s what the holdup is the
balls getting away from her whoa she’s moving over here
now she’s got to make this kick all the way
no sir doggy get out of the way Mac one more kick or two more kicks where are you going she’s just gonna get
in that goal and now she’s got to do the long jump and jump from the first line
oh and that’s a skip too and she finishes minute 34 a minute 34 but what we’re
doing is we are subtracting the seconds based on the number that they hit on the
long jump so the better they jumped the better their time will be we’re gonna
subtract two seconds and her official time becomes one minute thirty two
seconds do you think you can do better the
second time yeah we’ll see all right for your first round with no spider-man
costume okay no spider-man suit what is your prediction less than a minute it’s
just gold guys less than a minute three two one oh yeah let’s see how clean he
can get these spider cross whoa look at that now this is giving him trouble in
the past this little bouncy ball oh he does it with precision he speaks through
now ten lifts one two three four five six seven eight nine well that was sort
of a half lift on the end there and the dogs getting in the way there and he’s got one shot Oh get that back
get that back here that’s gonna hurt his time a little bit almost it comes right
back to him oh no the dogs trying to block him and play goalie Matt get out
of the way there you go gotta make that long jump okay two and a half and he finishes in a
minute and 22 seconds – two and a half we’ll give him minute 19 one minute 19
good time considering we missed a couple of kicks there what are you doing yeah
I’m that chart it came back I just accidentally just got more far out yeah
a little to the right it looked like hey let’s put on them spider-man costume see
if we get a little bit better wind resistance in round two the kids are
going to be putting on these specialized spider-man costumes that are not just
any costumes from a Halloween store they’re actually costumes made out of
lycra that are designed like athletic wear to give them less wind resistance
in a better chance of a better time on this obstacle course
Iron Man calls this calls his costume like the mark 1 mark – I think we’re
gonna call this the spider-man mark wedgie this is completely form-fitting
this is like a like an ice skater let’s turn this way it’s like an ice skater
suit not like a performance ice skater but like a speed skater some so for
protection we’re gonna add the shoes to this one although does come with feet
and I think that you’ve got a better chance oh look at these it’s got extra
long fingers we don’t know yeah these actually have 3d masks on here you look
like a mini spider-man can you see no yes yes yes nice Oh show us your spider
you agility you all right there you think you’re gonna slip on that
while you’re trying to do that sir get up look like a weirdo spider-man and
let’s see spider girl’s mask once you get down on her knees all of a sudden nice can you see yeah okay eyes are a
little bigger for her this may make it a little more challenging for you guys
again click inside here it’s got the pink get the pink color very nice
there’s Spider Girl gearing up is this your mouth you are trying to beat your
time with this new Spidey suit on at a minute 32 so you need better than a
minute 32 okay well I don’t know if the wiggle is gonna help you but we’ll see
three two one there you go now down to the Spidey craw oh she’s
good you got to go under that okay oh she don’t want to okay so she’s got a
different strategy on this one hmm she go grab that bouncer maybe likes to
do things her own way and she’s gonna grab that bouncer and she’s gonna go for
it very nice very nicely done yeah and she
go come over here grab these purple weights this time she’s gonna do five of
these threw him down she’s gonna weave in and out with this soccer ball in and
out of those cones she’s gonna have to hurry to match her time now she’s got it
now over here to the long kick uh-oh just lost control that ball she’s gonna
give it a good kick now keep what finish it off finish it off now get set
come on now finish it finish it finish it now let’s go get a long jump
long jump hurry hurry give it a long jump
hey go go for the finish line oh my goodness how much did she get on this
long jump here maybe one okay we’re gonna subtract one from that and she
actually had almost the same time she finishes with a minute 30 it’ll show us
your muscles oh good job Ava let’s see if spider-man can get this thing done
no that was a weak high five she wants you to do the best oh why did you punch
him in the stomach all right little Spidey your first time was a minute 19
okay and so we’re trying to get below one minute in 19 seconds we think we can
do it yeah as long as those eyes stay in place where are your eyes at point out
right up to the right there okay all right just so we know believe in
yourself crooked eyed spider-man oh there goes the spider-man crawl nicely done
getting on that bouncer driving it home get him bounce and he’s got ten of these
to do two three five six seven eight nine ten and on to the sucker this
soccer weave oh he’s doing it accurately all right line it up and take that long
shot nice he takes two seconds of my goodness
boy he pushed himself he pushed himself in he ends up with a time of 54 seconds take a victory laughs get ready for the
superhero mix-up challenge first up is little flash the recipient of the
Scholastic Award for first grade scholarship award for first grade an
honorable character there’s one more thing I’m not what applause he’s known
for his dancing ability are you ready to do this three two one go oh he’s chosen the Wolverine costume he’s got to put that on a hurry and on
in a hurry oh god his leg caught in the wrong leg you can put it on backwards if
you want he is having trouble with this one that’s gonna that’s gonna really
affect his time here oh he’s got it on backwards there here we go here we go he’s operational
now he’s got he’s got arms coming out of his Bobo little strange little strange
got a backwards Wolverine costume on never seen muscles coming out the back
before looks like he’s a factory worker or something my goodness this is the
most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen ABS on the back he’s choosing a Batman
costume on station two Eddie’s picked up with one shot and the
finish line is busted already but your time is two minutes and 11 seconds
show me your backwards muscles round one is two minutes and 11 seconds our second
contestant is Ava Ava do you have anything to say to your adoring fans oh
if she makes a prediction she’s gonna put the Wonder Woman costume on that’s
confidence representing pink Sylvania the country
of Pennsylvania and future pop star Ava is about to compete this is round one
for Ava you ready do it girl power ready start yes you can’t put
it on put it on even just put it on as best as you can now this is an interesting strategy just
our strategy is to okay good job Reinhold that’s got that’s the wrong
hole there you go her big Bo’s causing her some problems
this is extra challenge because she’s just getting the hang of dress herself
in the mornings when she wants to now she’s got it now she’s got it run to the
second round second station a mask a mask all she picks up the flash there you go station 3 station 3 she picks up her ball popper keep going
keep going and she’s got it backwards she’s gonna
have to make an adjustment there there you go there you go almost almost there
you go she’s gonna get all of him she took care
of all of them at once look at that fierce girl right through the finish
line she missed the finish line her time was three minutes and thirty seconds but
we have to hand it to her she took out all of the super heroes in the first
round this is round two and here are the rules we will go to the superhero
costume selection and then to station two where we will pick up a bat this is
the dizzy round we will do ten spins a whoa I’m getting old 10 spins around the
bet and then we will put a mask on go to the weapons station and take a shot and
here’s the catch in round two we cannot do or pick any gear that we picked on
the first round it must be all original gear for round two you ready to do it
let’s go round two ready start oh he’s picking something a little bit
easier this time he’s got the Thor costume on its normal
shirt buddy okay well he’s gonna soar sue that
qualifies let’s go grab UM
whoa he’s got our man’s mask on pick a new
superhero new weapon new super user little bit of trouble pick another one
pick another one he’s out of bullets he’s gotta pick up the pop Oh there we go oh I got it he got it right through the finish line a better
time this time he clocks in at a minute 50 a minute 50 and there’s a wasp on me
good lord round to dizzy challenge you ready to do
this girl 3 2 1 go oh she forgot a costume she’s gonna go
to station one first ah she’s picked out the flash costume remove her strawberry
sunglasses she’s super creative in her strategies
that’s good enough are you growing out the map
that’s clear oh dear goodness but Princess Leia or
something spin around there’s a little bit of
confusion on the rules got to grab his best gun with the green bag well she just counted to ten whoa oh
she’s she’s still dizzy needs a mask a little confused from the three spins
that she did while she counted the Tim she picks the Iron Man mask pick your weapon and she could go to any
superhero this time what she’s going the wrong way that that
dizzy spell just had a lasting effect on her
oh my goodness go to the finish line just what superhero this dog oh man

Maya the Bee – Bedtime Story (BedtimeStory.TV)

Maya the Bee – Bedtime Story (BedtimeStory.TV)


Maya the Bee Ooo…It’s so bright… Maya was a very young bee, only a few days old. She was cared for by Mrs. Kassandra, together
with a group of other little bees. Maya, please pay attention. This is important. Use your sting only when you really have to… Oh, that looks so yummy! / Maya! Yes? Ha ha. When you go out, make sure you watch out
for spider webs, and don’t get caught… When can I go outside with my sisters? At long last, Maya was allowed to go
out and gather honey with her sisters. Ooo..this is so exciting!!! Stay close Maya, don’t fly too high, Maya! But the world is so magnificent… I want to see everything!!! Ha ha! Wow!!! Look, what’s that? What’s this?…and this? Slow down Maya, one question at a time! But I want to know everything at once…Wow… Listen Maya, all you need to know is
how to find the right flowers. You don’t need to worry about all those trees. They won’t help you make honey.
/ Oh…but…. Just fly along with me…slowly…and hum so I know you’re there. Oh…okay…hey, wait for me!!! Maya tried to do as she was told, but she was distracted by
the sparkling drops of dew on the flowers, and got left behind. Oh, how pretty! Mmmm…. Ouch! Huh? Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t know there was anyone here. Did I wake you? Oh, it’s okay. I was just taking a little nap. Why don’t you come in and take a look around my home? Thanks. What kind of flower is this? This flower is called a rose. A rose! It’s so very pretty! A little while later, Maya found herself flying over a pond. As she looked down, she was astonished to see
another honeybee just like her in the water. Oh, hello! I am Maya. It’s nice to meet you. Ha ha! Don’t bother, child, it’s just a reflection. It’s like a mirror. Huh? What’s a mirror? It’s a thing people use to see themselves But don’t get fooled by a mirror reflection
and try to fly towards it. You’ll just crash into the mirror and hit your head. Oh…I see Maya kept flying until she reached a forest. Help! Does anybody hear me? It was a dung beetle called Kurt, who was in trouble. What is it? / Help…I can’t get up…can you help me out? I’d be happy to. What should I do? Can you flip me over? Ugh…ugh…Oh…I’m not sure I can… Wait…I’ve got it! Here grab hold of this and pull. Hurray! You did it!!! Ha ha ha! Thank you. That was very good of you. My name is Maya. Thank you, Maya. I’m Kurt. You’re welcome, Kurt. Oh…it’s getting dark… maybe I should sleep here tonight. Look at that moon! It reminds me of
the honey bread Kassandra used to make… I wonder what she’s doing now… but I can’t go back yet. There’s still so much to see! What a lovely morning. What adventures will I have today? Oh! Huh? What’s that? Ugh… Ahhh! Help! Help! My wings are trapped in the web! Please help me! Ha ha! Foolish child, This is my web, and you are my prey. I’m a spider! I will paralyze you with my venom,
and then I will drink your blood. Why? It was only then that Maya remembered Kassandra’s warnings. Oh, if only I had listened to her and been more careful. She told me so much about the dangers of the forest. You will stay here and prepare to become my dinner. I am going to look for more victims,
but I will be back! Ha ha! Ohhh…is this end? Is this how I will die? Maya! Is that you, Maya!? Yes it’s me! Kurt! Oh no! You’ve been captured by the spider! It’s my turn to help you now! Here… Yes! I’m flying again! I’m free! Thank you so much!!! Kurt, You’re the best. Well, I owed you one. You helped me out first. But be careful now, and don’t let yourself get caught again. Okay? Oh, I won’t Maya drank some sweet nectar from a daffodil to get her strength back. Oh.. Hello. Yes! I have it now…Ugh! Who are you? Oh! You scared me. I’m Maya the bee. I am Beetle, the great poet. Do you want to hear my new poem? Uhh…okay… A pretty beetle swayed on a petal, swayed on a petal and sang! Well? What do you think? Ummm…it’s good. I don’t know much about poetry, but… From the moment we met, I could tell you
were a great critic who appreciates genuine art! A what? / If you hadn’t understood me,
you see, I probably would have wept. Oh no, please don’t cry… I weep for the unenlightened masses who cannot see the meaning of my art…. I feel a new inspiration coming…farewell! What a strange cloud…is there something inside of it? Ow! Let me go! Ha ha ha! I have a treat for our Queen! Ha ha ha! Let go! Ahhhh!!!! Help! Serve this little honeybee to our Queen for breakfast tomorrow! Yes, sir. Maya was frightened and couldn’t sleep. In the middle of the night, she heard the guards talking outside. Get some sleep. You’ll need your strength when we storm that beehive tomorrow. You’re right. Ha ha ha! We’ll have ourselves a honeybee feast tomorrow! Are they talking about our beehive? Oh, no! Maya knew she had to think of something. I cannot sit back and let this happen! I must warn the queen! Just a little effort…just a little…a little more effort Maya pushed and wiggled until she made a little gap in the bars. Yes! I’m free! Your Majesty! We are in danger!!! What? Who’s in danger? What is it, child? We are all in terrible danger! What is going on? Your Majesty, the wasps mean to attack our beehive tomorrow! Are you sure? The wasps? When Maya finished telling her story, the Queen assembled her council at once. The following morning, an army of wasps approached the beehive. Attack!!! Attack the honeybees!!! Attack! Attack!!! The wasps’ shells were thick and strong, so they didn’t feel the honeybees’ stings. Puny little bees! Do you think you can win!? We are won! The honeybees refused to surrender. Fall back!! Retreat!! Troops, retreat!! We’ve won! Victory!!! Hurray! Hurray! We must remember that we owe our victory to
the courage of this little honeybee. If Maya had not risked her life to warn us, be
would have been crushed by the wasps for sure. Three cheers for Maya!!! Hurray!!! Maya grew up and became the Queen’s valued advisor She helped the queen rule the honeybees and protect their hive from enemies.

WASP 76b: Hot Jupiter Exoplanet that Rains Iron at Night

WASP 76b: Hot Jupiter Exoplanet that Rains Iron at Night


Hello Space Fans and welcome to another edition
of Space Fan News. In this episode astronomers at the European
Southern Observatory have observed an exoplanet that is tidally locked around it’s star
and because of this has extreme temperatures on the daytime and nighttime side. The temperatures are so hot that on the day
side, iron is a gas and at night that gas condenses into molten iron rain. It seems the more we look for and at exoplanets,
the stranger some of them become. We tend to be really focused on the Earth-like
ones because we like to fantasize that somehow, someday we could live on one of those. But Earth-like planets are elusive compared
to all the others that are out there and this week, astronomers using ESO’s Very large
Telescope and associated instruments have found a really strange exoplanet. The planet is called WASP-76b and it orbits
its star WASP-76 once every 1.81 days. That’s its year folks! The system is located some 640 light years
away in the areas of the sky bounded by the constellation Pisces. WASP-76b itself is what astronomers call a
hot-jupiter, meaning its about the size of jupiter and, well, it’s hot. It’s about1.8 times larger in radius than
Jupiter and is a little less massive (about .9 times the mass of Jupiter). Now a really large planet the size of Jupiter
going around it star once every couple of days is strange enough but because it’s
year is so short, that also means it’s pretty close to the star, which makes it very hot. Being so close also grabs it pretty strongly
to the star. WASP-76 is an F7 star that is about 1.7 times
bigger than our sun and 1.5 times as massive and because of all these factors, WASP-76b
is tidally locked to the star in its orbit around it. Tidally-locked means that the rate at which
the planet rotates matches its orbit around the star making one side of the planet always
facing the star and the other side facing away. So here we have a planet that’s way bigger
and more massive than Jupiter, going around an F7 star – which are known to, among other
things, emit large amounts of UV radiation – going around that star every couple of day
AND it has one side always facing the star and the other facing away… Well that’s a party where you know weird
stuff’s gonna happen. Astronomers looking at this system using ESO’s
VLT and specifically the spectral imager known as ESPRESSO, a fiber optics high resolution
spectrograph, and when they looked at the planet at various spots in the transit (that’s
the part where the planet passes between us and the star), on the day side of the planet
where temperatures were around 2400K, which means the daytime side of this star is comparable
to some of the cooler stars out there. Looking at the spectral images, they were
able to closely follow the neutral iron in the atmosphere as the daytime on the planet
progressed. Because different parts of the planet were
visible to us as the planet went around and correcting for all the motions of the planet
rotation and orbital motion, the team look at what was happening to the iron content
in the atmosphere. They noticed that when they could see more
of the daytime-side disk, they say more Iron and because we’re talking about 2400K, it
had to be gaseous. Then looking at the evening terminator as
it became less visible but was still there, the iron content went down and on the dark
side of the planet and the morning terminator, they couldn’t see any iron. So they concluded that since they could see
neutral iron on the dayside and the evening terminator, but not the nightside and the
morning terminator, the gaseous iron in the atmosphere condensed as it moved to the night
side (or the dark side as I like to say) and since the nighttime temps are still pretty
hot, of around 1600k, that’s still hot enough for iron to be a liquid. And it rains. Iron. Molten Iron. Here’s what they think that would look like. This is iron condensing into rain. This wasn’t in the paper but it makes me
wonder about the oceans on WASP-76b. Would need a helluva boat to sail on molten
seas. Or maybe it’s like a giant version of Mustafar
system in Star Wars. Who knows, we could have just found the birthplace
of Darth Vader. Alright enough of that. I want to thank all Deep Astronomy Patreon
Patrons who keep these episodes coming and I want to thank all of you for watching and
as always Keep Looking Up!

Rot In Hell, Harvey | Full Frontal on TBS


Since you’re probably working from home, which means watching videos on YouTube, I wanted to give you a little piece of good news. This just in to CNN. 23 years. 23 years in prison. That is the sentence that has been handed down for Harvey Weinstein. God, I wish I could high-five someone right now, but we’re out

How do we know it rains IRON on WASP-76b?

How do we know it rains IRON on WASP-76b?


I’m sure we’ve all heard of exoplanets
where some pretty bizarre stuff goes on, like evaporating exoplanets, whose orbits have
taken them too close to their parent star. Or a planet orbiting a pulsar, likely to be
composed of crystalline carbon, which would be similar, but denser than diamond. However, a newly discovered exoplanet called
WASP-76b, discovered using ESO’s VLT, has been found to have a very special characteristic:
on this planet, temperatures are so hot that instead of water rain, it rains molten iron. How can this be? And how can researchers know this from an
object 640 light years away? Exoplanets are pretty difficult to detect. Most exoplanets are only observed when the
planet’s orbit is aligned just right so that it transits in front of its parent star
from our perspective. Any whose orbits don’t align with our perspective
are exceptionally hard to discover, so chances are that there’s a lot more out there in
our relatively near vicinity that we don’t know about. Exoplanets that are very close to their stars,
with very small orbits, are the easiest to discover, because we can see a very clear
pattern on the star’s light curve over a short period of time. WASP-76b is one such planet. Plus, it is huge, way bigger than Jupiter,
and combine this with the fact that it only takes 1.8 Earth days to make one orbit, it
made it comparatively easy to detect. But detecting the presence of an exoplanet
is one thing, how do astronomers know anything about its physical characteristics? Interestingly, the first thing astronomers
do is find out the physical characteristics of the parent star, WASP-76. The distance to the star is first determined,
and then the star is classified based on its brightness and colour. Knowing the distance helps us determine how
bright it is, and we measure its colour simply by observing it, which helps us determine
how hot it is. If the star is on the main sequence, then
this chart also helps us know the radius and mass of the star, as they all tend to follow
a pattern. Once we have that information, we can determine
the characteristics of the orbiting planet itself. Knowing the mass and radius of the star means
we can measure the mass of the orbiting planet using some clever equations, based on the
Law of Universal Gravitation. As it happens, WASP-76b is a super-Jupiter,
way bigger than our Jupiter. That means that although it is massive, this
mass is spread out across a large volume, likely making it a gas giant. Orbiting this close to the star means the
planet is probably tidally locked, only one side faces the star at any given time. Also, due to the proximity of the planet,
it orbits within the star’s atmosphere, the physics of which we really don’t understand
yet. However, the star facing side will be extremely
hot, estimated to be around 2,400°c, easily hot enough to vaporise metals. Models go on to suggest the night side is
about 1500°c, still blisteringly hot, but much cooler. To really find out what WASP-76b is made of
though, we need to go back to the light curve of the transit. Scientists look for differences in the light
when the planet passes in front of the star, as light from the star will shine through
the planet’s atmosphere. Certain atoms block certain wavelengths of
light, so any reduced wavelengths help us know what is in the atmosphere. This is known as spectroscopy. For WASP-76b, the biggest surprise that scientists
detected was an abundance of iron in the atmosphere! Based on what we know about the planet so
far, it seems like iron exposed to the day side of the planet is vaporised, where it
is transported through strong wind processes to the terminator line between the day and
the night side of the planet. Here, the temperature is low enough for the
iron the cool and condense, producing iron raindrops which fall deeper into the atmosphere. By the time the wind has reached the “morning”
side of the planet, iron can no longer be detected. This remarkable measurement, taken by the
ESPRESSO instrument on ESO’s VLT, is the first time variations have been spotted like
this on an ultra-hot gas giant. Although it probably won’t be the last time! So, there we have it. How it can rain iron on WASP-76b. I have no doubt we’ll be hearing about more
astonishing exoplanet discoveries in the future, there are a lot of missions that have either
launched or will be launched in the not too distant future, helping us get a better understanding
of the universe around us. So, if you enjoyed this video and want to

Coronavirus is Not an Excuse to Be Racist | Full Frontal on TBS

Coronavirus is Not an Excuse to Be Racist | Full Frontal on TBS


Tonight, we are going on a weird, wild journey
together, because due to the increasing threat of the coronavirus, we wanted to do the responsible
thing and not have an audience. Okay, we have some people, but they work for
us, and they’re sitting six feet apart as recommended by the CDC. And also because they hate each other. We considered using a laugh track tonight,
but unfortunately the only sound cues we had on hand were the woos from Saved By the Bell
when Zach Morris kissed Kelly Kapowski. We won’t have audience laughter, but we might have my laughter because my writers have added some jokes that I haven’t seen before. Starting now.
I’m Samantha Bee and I am responsible for twenty unsolved murders along the Florida
panhandle— Goddamnit, guys.
I told you that in confidence. Okay fine, the world is ending,
but let’s pretend we’re still gonna have an actual election in November. Who [BLEEP] knows!
Last night, six states voted in the Democratic primary. It was a big night for Joe Biden,
and a weird night for CNN. Bernie Sanders…
Not not not happening right now. Joe Biden Joe Biden is the winner of the Mississippi
primary. Joe Biden carries Mississippi. There we have it right. Ah. Right there. You can
see it. Maybe you can’t see it. Just [BLEEP] make a decision, Deep State! Looks like the crew from CNN is already working
from home. And I don’t blame them. With more than 100,000 cases of coronavirus
worldwide, many leaders are taking extreme but necessary
precautions. Schools in China have been closed for over
a month, Italy is on lockdown, and the governor of New York has ordered a containment zone
in Westchester county, where the state national guard is being deployed
to clean schools and deliver food. It sounds scary, but also like the opening
scene of a very topical porn. It’s where I get all my news. Meanwhile, our president is bravely… denying
anything is wrong. No, I’m not concerned at all. No, I’m not.
We’ve done a great job with it. We’re prepared and we’re doing a great job
with it. It will go away. Just stay calm, it will go
away. Be calm. It’s really working out and a lot
of good things are gonna happen. Anybody that needs a test gets a test. They’re
there. They have the tests. And the tests are beautiful. Rest assured, America: these tests are so
hot, you’ll wanna get them pregnant. That’s not true.
I wish I could knock up a test right now. But there aren’t any.
To date, the U.S. has tested fewer than 5,000 people for COVID-19, which is far behind other
developed countries. The White House is completely mishandling
this very real, very scary pandemic. Last week, the White House overturned the
CDC’s recommendation for seniors to avoid taking flights—a recommendation that would
have benefited a lot of senior citizens, except for my dad, who was this close to making it
into the mile high club. You’ll get there one day, Pops. You’re my hero.
But at least conservatives are… Oh my god. My dad’s gonna die. But at least conservatives are following the president’s terrifying spread of misinformation. And it is this virus which is caused by the Chinese, this Wuhan virus.
The Chinese coronavirus really is Chinese. China did this to the world.
The most encouraging thing is happening out of China who started this whole thing.
Yeah, exactly. The whole thing’s to show that their measures
at containing it have actually worked. Even though they started it and have yet to
apologize. China, we know it’s not your bad, but could
you please send Brian Kilmeade an Edible Arrangement so he’ll shut the [BLEEP] up? Tying coronavirus to China and Chinese people isn’t just a racist dog whistle.
It’s a whole racist orchestra. It’s a mighty mighty racist bosstone.
Which brings me to this important point: the coronavirus is not an excuse to be racist!
I know, I know. Racism is like America’s weighted blanket.
When everything is stressful, nothing makes us feel more secure than treating other people
like trash. At Columbia University, some dillhole wrote
on a blackboard that the library was a “Wuhan virus isolation area.” In Utah, the Shen Yun dance troupe was the victim of a rumor claiming they were carrying
the virus. That’s obviously not true. But if they were, they would carry it beautifully. Good woo! And at a Washington Costco, a worker handing out free samples told an eight-year-old boy
wearing a mask to get away from her because she thought he’d give her the coronavirus.
Are you kidding me? That tray of room-temperature ham samples
probably already has every other disease imaginable after sitting there getting groped by customers
all day. If anything, a little coronavirus might kill
the listeria. Oh right, we also have the sound cue from
growing pains when Boner’s parents kicked him out of the house. Guys, that sucks. Boner died. Sorry. I’m not even laughing. Across the country, fear of the disease is
taking a toll on Asian American-owned businesses. How has coronavirus impacted your business?
Tremendous. Lam says he’s lost 1.5 million dollars and
business is down around 50%. What do you think the reason is? The coronavirus, which is a scare to get infected by Chinese people. Holy shit. That is so stupid. Avoiding Chinese restaurants because you think
every Chinese person has coronavirus? That’s like not going to Ikea because you
think all Swedish people want to burn you alive in a bear suit. Which they do. The media’s use of stereotype-enforcing images can be just as damaging.
Major news outlets have repeatedly misused photos of Asian faces in masks to illustrate
stories about coronavirus, regardless of who or what the story is about.
That’s lazy. Especially because if they dug a little deeper
they’d see that there are dozens of photos of me on Getty wearing face masks that they
could be using. I don’t wear them because they’re effective.
I wear them because I like to try on new chins. Across the country, Asian Americans have been
the victims of racist attacks. In Los Angeles county, a sixteen-year-old
boy was beaten up so badly at school, he had to go to the hospital. In New York, a subway rider verbally harassed and sprayed Febreze on a man he believed to
be Asian. What the [BLEEP]?
The only person you should be afraid of in that situation is the guy who keeps Febreze
on him at all times. Whatever that Febreze is usually for, it is very bad. Businesses are also using fears of coronavirus
to deny service to Asian customers. This week in Plymouth, Indiana, this person
at this Super 8 denied a room to the two Hmong men filming this video. If you’re from China, I need to know. Because of the coronavirus going around. And
anyone from China, I am told, has to be picked up and quarantined for two weeks.
Wyndham hotels, who franchises Super 8, said they’re deeply troubled, and there’s no corporate
policy denying rooms to guests who are Chinese. No one should feel scared to stay there because
they’re Asian. They should feel scared to stay there because
they will probably be eaten out the ass by bed bugs. These aren’t rare, isolated incidents. They’re ubiquitous, dangerous, and so pervasive,
they’ve prompted a CDC official to warn that being Asian is not a risk factor for coronavirus.
Unfortunately, the CDC then had to declare that being Asian is a risk factor for getting
assaulted by racists. COVID-19 is scary, and it’s made even scarier
because our government is mishandling this crisis and conservative media is using Asian
people as scapegoats. The Trump administration is not going to save us. We have to take care of each other. It’s not okay to mistreat people out of fear and panic.
Especially when we’re doing so many other stupid things out of fear and panic. I have spent the last week stockpiling beans and making my own hand sanitizer out of bleach
and lube. Asterisk asterisk. Do not do that.
