Being single helps you live longer, so does adhering to CDC guidelines

Satire by

In a new and very timely report, researchers from Stanford Med have concluded that “being and staying single” helps one live a “longer and healthier life.” This was stated among a list of other things that one can do to live a more healthy life during the time of COVID and beyond. 

Stanford researchers decided to release their studying early in a time where people really have nothing else to worry about. Some of the other notable mentions of things that could prolong one’s life were: adhering to CDC guidelines, not getting hit by a Marguerite shuttle, and avoiding ingesting chemicals as advised by the United States President. 

Stanford researchers have spent a large amount of time analyzing scenarios in which people die from relationships. They’ve concluded that being in a relationship makes one more prone to leaving the house, leading to a varying amount of accidental deaths. Additionally, they’ve proven that co-existing with another human being for long amounts of time can lead to premature heart attacks. 

Altogether the research team from Stanford Med concludes that if one wishes to live a long and healthy life, they should resist the urge to settle down, get married and try their hand at love.
