Practice Physical Distancing - NOT Social Distancing

"Stay Home, and maintain a distance of 6 ft from other people"

Has anyone else noticed that we should be practicing physical distancing to combat the Corona Pandemic?

Social distancing would be roughly equivalent to being anti-social. Physical distancing would be maintaining a distance between people. Social Distancing could mean you can't make any Facebook or LinkedIn posts, and that just doesn't help.

I guess this we should call this a Trump-isim.

While digging in a dusty cave for treasure, Ahmed discovers a brass lantern. With growing excitement Ahmed rubs the lantern and to his delight a genie pops out of the lantern. The genie says "For freeing me from the lantern I will grant you three wishes, choose carefully human and thrive". 

Ahmed jumps up and down with excitement "I know, I know, I want three more wishes forever!" 

The genie pulls out his schmitar and cuts off Ahmeds head. "Your wish is granted greedy human, you will have three more wishes forevermore"

One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Oracle where the Shadows lie.
One Java to rule them all, One Java to find them,
One Java to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them,

In the Land of Oracle where the Shadows lie.
