Animal Crossing is the game of quarantine. You have virtually limitless control over how you design your island, your house, and yourself, and having people over to gaze at shooting stars or sell turnips or just hang out is easy and fun.

Citizen/crowdsourced science that uses self-reporting to track the spread of COVID-19. From physicians & researchers at Harvard, MGH, King's College London, Stanford, and ZOE (scientists who run the longest-running twin study in the world).

It Follows is a 2014 horror film about a sexually transmitted curse. Extra relevant today when we're all dealing with fears about Coronavirus spread. The horror in It Follows is slow and steady, not resorting to jump scares. The cinematography and soundtrack are exquisite.

Generally regarded as Stephen King's greatest novel, The Stand is about a disease that wipes out all but a tiny percentage of the population. The survivors have to regroup and rebuild, and the scariest part is human beings themselves.

I love Neal Stephenson because reading his books expands your mind. He was so far ahead of so many tech innovations. The Diamond Age follows a badass female main character through a world of nanotech, matter generators, and a device that basically predicted the Kindle and iPad.
China Miéville creates a stunning, disgusting, despairing, fantastical world in The Scar. Although it's book 2 of the New Crobuzon series, you don't have to have read the first one, Perdido Street Station, for this to make sense.

Focus on decreasing the chaos and pain in the little sphere around you, and you'll make the world a better place. Strive to be a better person with a purpose. Your job as a parent is to raise good human beings. Jordan Peterson is full of pearls of wisdom.
Incredible true crime story by the woman who pieced together that several criminals were actually all one person, who she dubbed The Golden State Killer. Sadly she died while writing this book and didn't get to see the killer apprehended, but her work led to his capture.
