This reminds me of a walk through downtown Seattle in August 2010. I was thinking of taking one more job before I left the country. I drove almost everywhere, didn't go to malls, so I was never around crowds; the interview was in walking distance from where I was working so I walked.

It was like a Plague City. Most people looked simply awful; tottering, terrible complexions, bewildered. MOST people I saw looked diseases and almost all were obese.
