Catching things is not the problem. Not letting them go is.
Catching viruses. OMG. How many colds have you caught and let go of.
Who comes up with this crap that once you have caught a baseball or virus you can’t let go?
Anyone who claims you can’t let go of a virus is full of baseballs.
Not letting go of wacky ideas that viruses cannot be caught and let go of is the problem.
How many colds have you gotten from mosquitoes?
None? How exactly can you prove that the mosquito didn’t carry the cold virus?
Was it too heavy for it to carry? Too slippery for the dirty shared mosquito needle to transcribe it?
Or is it HIV in disguise?
Understanding catching and releasing of a ball and catching and releasing viruses go hand in hand.
Transmit and transcribe that all you want, the message remains in short/handed or under/handed theory.
Sorta looks a lot like a doctor’s prexription.
See if you can catch this and hold on/to/it.
