Pictures From The Spanish Flu 100 Years Ago Shows Similarities In Managing Pandemics

100 years ago, the Spanish Flu was sweeping its way across the globe, infecting and killing millions. The guidelines were much like the ones we have today during the pandemic we're living through now - stay home and wear protective gear in public. Thankfully, lockdown is a lot more bearable nowadays and people are finding all sorts of ways to entertain themselves. But these pictures show that a pandemic is a pandemic is a pandemic and if they did it way back then, we can get through it now. Hang in there, people!

Couple Builds Mini Pub In Backyard And It's Total Goals

One of the most (relatively) devastating effects of Coronavirus has been the closing of all bars and pubs. Although this has been felt everywhere, the British public is understandably one of the most hard-hit nations when it comes to the loss of social drinking. Some are wallowing in their sadness and waiting for the pubs to reopen. But others are taking matters into their own hands and implementing drastic action to get their alcohol fix. One family in Wigan, U.K., hired Octavia Chic to construct a pub in their backyard so they wouldn't have to wait until the lockdown is over. The results are even better than you could imagine, and judging by the pictures Octavia Chic uploaded to their Facebook page (featured below), they're going to get many more orders just like that one!

Justin Timberlake Finding 24-Hour Parenting Hard, But Receives Little Sympathy

Justin Timberlake was recently interviewed on SiriusXM's "The Morning Mash Up" about how quarantine has affected his family life. The singer and his wife Jessica Biel, have moved to a house in Montana with their 5-year-old son Silas, to protect themselves from coronavirus. His reply to the inquiry was "We're mostly commiserating over the fact that just 24-hour parenting is just not human" and as you can imagine, it was met with some less-than-favorable responses from the internet. People were pretty upset that the star, who has an estimated net worth of $250 million, was finding it hard to be quarantined with one child in a huge house surrounded by beautiful and scenic natural views. Some jumped to his defense, but most were livid. Here's how it went down.

"Friends": The One With Coronavirus

COVID-19 feels like a movie - a horror film to be precise. But unfortunately, it's very much real life and we're in the middle of riding it out. But did you ever wonder how some of your favorite TV characters would react to being stuck in the quarantine nightmare? A bit of a throwback, but here's how I think the cast of Friends would react to the Coronavirus situation. Or at least this is how we're all feeling, as told by the Central Perk gang.
