People all over the world are looking for new ways to pass the time at home now that so many of us are self-isolating with the hopes of avoiding the spread of the novel coronavirus. Naturally, many people have taken to the Internet to curb their boredom. People are doing everything from dreaming about movie meals to sharing their random photos. This week, a new trend on Twitter started thanks to @LightsCameraPod, who created a film generator based on birthday, eye color, and phone battery. The post blew up after people started to create some epically interesting film ideas.
