A man who was supposed to be self-isolating was recently caught out on the street in a dinosaur costume.
With self-isolation becoming mandatory in many EU countries, some governments have even moved to impose fines on anyone caught outside without a very good reason.

One example of this is in Spain where Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez recently imposed a 15-day state of emergency which has restricted all but the most essential of trips.

Not everyone however has been willing to play ball.

In a recent viral video, police officers can be seen approaching a man who had ventured out onto the streets of Murcia wearing an inflatable Tyrannosaurus rex costume to protect him from the virus.
"During the state of emergency, walking of pets is allowed if accompanied by one person, always short walks so they can relieve themselves," the police departments's tongue-in-cheek post reads.

"Having a Tyrannosaurus rex is not covered. #stayathome."

The clip, which can be viewed below, has since racked up over 5 million views.

One of the most welcome attributes of long term meditation has been the steady decrease in 'taking the universe personally', which has brought limitless relief. Things happen through me, not to me. Not taking life and people's opinions and perspectives personally has allowed so much space for raw presence in the moment, which creates fertile soil for better listening and being relaxed enough to catch the details and enjoy the small oddnesses that are ever present. The oddnesses are a constant source of simple joy. Long ago, I traded sincerity for seriousness. Seriousness is a misplaced no... [More]
