It is time for common sense jury nullification. Or, this Corvid-19 bullshit has gone too far.

In the new altered reality that is 2020, Americans in some cities have begun calling the police on each other as coronavirus rules are being violated.

Police arrested a New Jersey homeowner for hosting a pop-up wedding that exceeded the ban of gatherings of over 50 people issued by the governor to stem the spread of the virus.

Eliyohu Zaks, a 49-year-old homeowner, was arrested by police in Ocean County and charged with “maintaining a nuisance for hosting the wedding” which had more than 50 people gathered at his home. Lakewood police have reportedly responded to about 17 calls for social distancing violations of regulations put in place by the state, according to KYW-TV.

“The Lakewood Police is asking that its citizens be responsible and obey the directives set forth by the State of New Jersey for the safety and health of all. Those that choose not to will be subject to criminal prosecution,” police said in a statement.

If you say the right prayers and do special lengthy readings the Roman Catholic Church will forgive your sins.

The Catholic Church has today granted forgiveness - under certain conditions - for the sins of the faithful struck by coronavirus.

A decree published by the Vatican on Friday also covers healthcare workers and those who pray for their wellbeing.

Relatives who care for their sick family members may also be forgiven.

The conditions include the sick saying a certain number of prayers or following important celebrations from a distance.

Shopping continues to be an adventure in Europe.

Video footage out of London and Paris shows “youths” attempting to loot stores and start fights in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

A clip showing a Sainsbury’s shop front in central London shows youths attempting to smash down the supermarket’s doors in an effort to break in.

No drinks officer. I was operating my Apple CarPlay.

Using Apple CarPlay impairs driver reaction more than alcohol, study shows

U.K. based road safety charity IAM RoadSmart has released a study showing how in-vehicle infotainment systems can substantially impair driver's reaction times —even more than alcohol and cannabis.

I will never have one of these in my home. More evidence to back my position.

Hey Alexa, stop listening to my client’s information.

As law firms urge attorneys to work from home during the global pandemic, their employees’ confidential phone calls with clients run the risk of being heard by Amazon.com Inc. and Google.

Jack Flash sat on a candlestick .'Cause fire is the devil's only friend. Just kidding, Genius Award Winner.

Holy smoke! A Plymouth vicar whose niece is a 'mermaid' in Cornwall got a bit hot under the (dog) collar - when he accidentally set fire to himself during an online sermon.

Reverend Stephen Beach, of St Budeaux Parish Church, was preparing the church's online Sunday Service, which featured five candles lit on a Christian Cross in the background. After leaning in a bit too close one of the candles caught his jumper which then caught on fire.
