People being forced inside made the natural world a better place. In short, our not being around led to nature healing. What this says about humanity is really scathing and a little uncalled for. We’ve gone ahead and put together a list of the most iconic moments that happened when people around the world were forced to stay inside. Hopefully, they make this trash fire of a year seem a little more worthwhile.
Clear Canals in Venice
Who knew so many tourists were peeing in the canals? Anyway, they are pretty clear now for the first time in ages, and even though no tourists were around around to see it, the fish really liked it. Swans and dolphins even came back, which is majestic as shit.
Elephants Got Drunk
Even though people could no longer go out and party, that did not hold back the elephants. A group of 14 elephants took advantage of the coronavirus to have a big old party in the field of a Yuan province. Now elephants know what it is to have a hangover and promise to never do it again. Until they do.
Wild Goats Take Over a Town In Whales
It took a global pandemic for these majestic creatures to feel confident roaming the streets again. As people stayed in at Whales, the goats came out. People got some very quaint pictures of the real inhabitants retaking the streets. Let’s make sure this stays a regular thing.
Seeing the Himalayas from Delhi
The Himalayas haven’t been visible from India’s capital in the last 200 years, an insanely long period of time. Housing values must be soaring now that their balconies can boast views of the Himalayas. People can take a deep healthy breath during yoga out there now. Nature is healing.
Monkey Wars of Thailand
Who would have thought a guy eating a bat would lead to monkey wars in Thailand? Without any tourists to steal food from, monkeys in Thailand formed into packs and started a war. Much like modern gangs, monkeys banded together to fight over the territory left with good scraps like they were in the movie Highlander.
Huge Rats in New York City
When the people left New York City during the peak of the pandemic, rats moved in. Peoples apartments now had rats sleeping in their beds, eating their food, and potentially even working their jobs. Individuals unfortunate enough not to have been left a trust fund by their parents were forced to confront this new huge rat problem, which could not have been pleasant.
Nature has been healing, and in some cases getting alarmingly stronger. As everyone turns the corner on 2020, lets just remember that things can always be this beautiful and nice if we just band together as a team and treat the environment well. But lets not turn our backs on the rats… Those bastards can continue living like its 2019.
