Okay guys I'm really glad to live in America right now because look how crazy and desperate things have gotten in Australia with all this Covid nonsense.
Yeah, that's a bunch of bedsheets tied together which helped a guy to escape a ridiculous mandatory quarantine from the fourth floor of a hotel in Perth, Australia.
Too bad he doesn't know Rapunzel.
Oh, incase you haven't heard, things are pretty over-the-top in Australia when it comes to Covid restrictions. We showed you a few days ago how serious (sarcasm) the Delta variant outbreak has become in The Land Down Under.
And here, check this out:
More than half of Australia's 26 million population are in lockdown in [New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia], and restrictions have been imposed elsewhere to stop the spread.
Australia's borders have been closed since last year to almost all non-Australians, and even those allowed into the country must pay thousands of dollars to quarantine for two weeks in a hotel. Spaces in the state-run quarantine hotels are limited, so fewer tickets are being sold for international flights. Thousands of Australians have complained that they have been shut out of the country.
Yes, even if you're traveling within the country—and in some cases even if you test negative for Covid—you have to quarantine in one of these state-run hotels.
Anyhow, this guy with the bed sheets, he arrived in Western Australia and didn't "meet the exemption requirements" to enter the state—whatever that means. So he was told he had 48 hours to get his ugly, yella, no good keister out of Western Australia and back to east Australia where he came from.
In the meantime, he was to stay in one of those fancy state-run quarantine hotels—on the fourth floor.
But once he got there the room and the overall authoritarian feel wasn't really his style, so he started tying bedsheets together. Once he had a good length he threw them out the window and tied his end to something in the room (I'da gone with the bed). Then he climbed down and got the heck out of there.
Pretty cool escape, huh?
Not so much.
[The man] was caught Tuesday morning and charged with failure to comply with a direction and providing false information.
The man tested negative for Covid-19.
Moral of the story: be thankful that you don't live in the dystopian nightmare that is Australia.
