Coronavirus 1990

Imagine we are the ages we are now but we are all living in 1990 and the Coronavirus has just hit.

How would we be spending our time?

No internet
Fairly expensive phone calls
No Netflix or streaming sites
VHS rentals just becoming viable but no way to rent them in isolation
Only 4 channels

Things are bad now but I wonder what creature comforts would get us through the same thing in 1990. I swear every house had the entire collected Encyclopaedia Britannica so we’d probably be reading those from cover to cover.

I never thought about that Robb! My mate sells office equipment and I asked him to get me a laptop and he just laughed at me. He said that all of his suppliers had 3 between them and they were about 2k each.

I remember playing Tecmo World Cup 90 to death in the arcades back then. And another game called 'Ring King', which was better than it sounded.

I’ve been trying to get a switch but it’s next to impossible. Might have to just stick to NES and SNES games on the retropie

I've been toying with getting footy manager. It's been a few years since I played. Not sure it's a good idea though!

Probably not 😂

Just as the quarantine is lifted you’ll be too far gone, praying or a second wave of infection

Yep, I think I'll give it the swerve. Got too many plans for the next few weeks/months.
