Ugh, I’ve been getting repeated calls on my burner phone this morning, all with a recording of some woman jabbering at me in Chinese while piano jazz plays in the background. It’s unsettling because I read Stephen King’s “Cell” not long ago, and the obvious associations of a virus being transmitted over cell phones tickled at my brain.
Silly, yes. But that led to the thought that maybe someone is orchestrating these calls to make people *think* that a virus was being spread by robocalls. There are weirder things flying around in people’s heads these days, so I could see how an idea like this could take root, given a good push by some shadowy group of political operatives.
Sigh.. It’s getting harder to see reality from chaos for all the noise, and one’s mind can go strange places, but then there’s always Google to the rescue.
