Hindsight is 2020

Don't worry kids, here comes.....


"Captain Hindsight here. See that outbreak kids, we should have seen that coming sooner, and we should have done more about it, and..... and of course it's the Big Bad Orange Man's fault, I was writing to the Whitehouse and calling my representative in congress long before anyone else saw this coming, that's how smart I am, but no one wouldn't listen to me...."

That's all for today's episode kids. Tune in again tomorrow when we'll find out if Captain Hindsight is actually Dave Trollpants in disguise, or if he's an entirely new online alter-ego of Dave Bad Person. Until then, remember that Hindsight is 2020, especially in the year 2020!


This particular Coronavirus can be genetically traced to a population of cave-dwelling horseshoe bats in Yunnan province. However, it's now believed the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan is where the epidemic started. Around the time the outbreak began the market was seen selling wild, exotic, and farmed animals in cages, and all in close proximity to each other. Such conditions are known to cause recombination of viruses and allows them to hop between species and eventually to humans. This is exactly how the closely related SARS virus started in Guangdong province back in 2002. Among the live animals photographed for sale at Huanan Market just before its closure were:  rats, snakes, wolf puppies, porcupines, foxes, crocodiles, giant salamanders, beavers, deer, pangolins, and badgers, as well as the usual poultry and pigs.

We should have seen this coming and we should have done something about it sooner.
