Santa Cruz, CA: April 15th is a day that is usually filled with last minute tax filers trying to frantically finish their U.S. taxes and mail them in before midnight, or file them electronically. Some years, the 15th falls on a weekend and people get an extra day or two. This year, in the timeline of most everyone reading this, the tax deadline has been extended by 3 months! This is quite unusual and unexpected, as Benjamin Franklin famously noted.
So, we are definitely in a wormhole and surrounded by a thin layer of universes in which taxes are delayed by 3 months, which is inside a much, much thicker layer of universes in which taxes are due today! I’m trying to surf to the universes past the thin layer of COVID-19 pandemic universes in this wormhole I surfed into. So, I spent all day today working on my taxes and filed them electronically, as I would in many of the universes in which there is no pandemic.
