She also gave some insight as to just why it wasn’t working. During a teary conversation with her family, Kim revealed that Kanye was largely absent, constantly moving around and that he needed a wife who could follow him around wherever he went and move to Wyoming. “I just can’t do that,” Kim said probably trying to fathom what there even is to do in Wyoming.

So weird. I think I saw on reddit absolute proof that screaming is 349 times more effective in preventing Covid-19 infections than any ol’ vaccine.
