I calculate appropriate social distance thru a combination of shadow, sextant and line. I need a catchy yell for appropriate distance rather than my current thumbs-up to my fellow citizens after finishing my calculations.

Something that will go down in folklore-ish posterity, like "mark twain!" or other hearty phrasing.


"Mark twain!" is very clever .... as long as never the twain shall meet, otherwise you wouldn't be distancing, mark my words.

For a classical angle, you could shout "marcus brutus!" when someone gets too close.


Shouldn't that be , as in 6ft?


ha, the demons ate my quote!
it's "marcus sextus", pre-comma


I apologize for the demons. Your wit does not deserve to be tormented by their petty tricks and Internet programming nonsense
