COVID-19 has screwed up the world, shutting things down and quite literally creating social distance between people. To many of us, it seems like a very dangerous time, as authorities could very easily overstep their bounds. At the same time, there is definitely validity to many measures being taken to help the spread of this potentially deadly virus. This leaves us at sort of a crossroads. How do we know when authorities have taken a step too far, and how do we know when the virus is over?
SPOILER ALERT: I will reveal some key details about the movie. That being said, there's a chance you'll already know some of them upfront, as they are pretty well known. Still, you have fair warning.
Let me be honest here: I do not have any amazing new information to present in this case. In fact, I'll admit that I only recently learned about this entire story. However, I will do my best to put the details into perspective, though they seem forever scrambled regardless of how they're pieced together.
I have discussed the Almas before, back when I wrote for the website 1428 Elm and did my Call of the Cryptid series. In many ways, I'm trying to get back into that habit, because I occasionally like discussing cryptids and strange phenomena. As I stated about the Almas back then:
"The Almas are described as 'ape-men' inhabiting the Caucasus and Pamir Mountains of Central Asia, and the Altai Mountains of Mongolia. Might they exist?... There are many accounts of the Almas, to the point where the creature sounds plausible (or semi-plausible)."
