"Brandolini's law"
"Master Cleanse"

"The Science of Risk--Who knows best how to avoid harm?"

An outstanding piece by economist Steven Landsburg. Explains why people are not as stupid as they are often made out to be--including a nice analysis of the difference between the behavior of people in lab experiments and the behavior of people in the real world--and as a bonus, applies an economic framework to what we should do and should not do regarding the virus. And written in Landsburg's crystal clear, energetic style. Strongly recommended.
