When the news is mainly about people dying, someone selling stolen rolodexes sounds insignificant in comparison

It does to me.

100m people losing a minute of their life to handling this (lets call it nanodeath) is 190 continuous years of wasted time that you could have spent with your family, napping, reading or other pleasurable life things.

That’s the kind of math that, say, an insurer, should do to determine whether an intervention should be paid for.

But usually you just get called a monster for doing that kind of math.
