    Wearing Masks

    I can’t believe how wearing an mask has become so political. They do work, I’ve seen tests where a person coughed into Petri dishes with no mask, a paper mask, a cloth homemade mask , and an N 95. The only dish that grew anything was the one without any mask. We didn’t like the seatbelt law years ago but we wear them now without thinking twice about it. We all wear clothes, without thinking about it. I can’t stand wearing them, they are uncomfortable, they make you hot, in reality they are a pain in the ass. BUT THEY PROTECT YOUR FELLOW MAN, and you. Our fearless leader refuses to wear a mask being the role model that he is and you hear if the president doesn’t have to wear one neither do I. In woke up free today so I don’t need a mask so somehow a piece of paper, or cloth takes away your freedom. This virus is an invisible killer, how many people are we willing to sacrifice in the fight over wearing a mask. We opened up some businesses and the virus spiked, it has not gone away it is out there just waiting for another host to sicken. PLEASE PEOPLE LET’S GET A HOLD ON THIS VIRUS SO WEAR A MASK WHEN YOU ARE OUT AND ABOUT. I see it as compassion for your fellow man, nothing to bicker about like little children, grow Up and get a clue...

    its no secret that i have adopted a prevention over cure perspective that i apply liberally to all aspects of life and if i was certain the mask made a difference i would wear 2. the problem, not unlike most aspects of life is does it make a difference? too much misinformation and too many good liars out there. one thing this whole pandemic has done to me is made me even more sceptical than i was before if that was possible. im not doubting you ester but what i am saying just because msm does a report showing the results you mentioned doesnt mean it is true. all the msm does is push the daily agenda which changes day to day or when ever the wind blows. at first we were told explicitly dont wear a mask. now we are being told the opposite. virus aside science tells us rebreathing our own carbon dioxide is unhealthy which makes sense. for now that is what i am basing my decisions on. just plain too much conflicting info to figure out the truth which is the problem with most things today. btw is the earth round or flat?
    an OUNCE of prevention is worth a POUND of cured ...... anyone that doesnt like cannabis just hasnt tried the right strain.

        Does anyone trust the New England Journal of Medicine ?

          i have heard that if you don't wear a mask then you are a murderer.
          What if you wear a mask that only partially protects as everyone is doing? Are they only partial murderers?

          so many people in a deep sheep, I see people everyday out walking with nobody around them for hundreds of feet -wearing a mask, driving by themselves in their cars- wearing a mask >> they are idiots of the highest order. ANYBODY who is NOT immunocompromised and wears a mask is a dumbass imho.

          They tell you sheep to wear a mask to placate you so you don't have a complete mental breakdown and panic.

          Here's what will protect you from viruses...this is what virologists wear to prevent them from contracting viruses.

          Why would they go through all this trouble if a face covering or N95 mask would work?

          #CommonSense


          I will social distance, wash my hands often, stay away from crowds etc and do what is needed to protect myself and others, no problem. but i don't wear a mask unless i absolutely have to. breathing Oxygen instead of my own CO2 is more important to me than the false sense of security that a Mask may provide.

              this is from the article that Knucklehead Bob posted a link to:

              Originally posted by New England Journal of Medicine
              We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.

                imagine if Woodrow Wilson had advised people not to wear masks in 1918.

                they would have been smart enough to discontinue him, AND the bureaucrats who echoed the stupidity (Fauci for example).

                and of course there is the part about Fauci managing 2 NIH contracts to develop NASTY coronaviruses - the work to be done at the Wuhan lab.

                The US is now "homo sapiens, V ablatisque testiculis" - home sapiens with 5 pairs of testicles.


                And it has simply invented a way to kick itself in all 5 gonads at the same time.

                  I saved one good N95 with a vent in case I need to fly on an airline. They must require people to wear masks on this flight, and this guy is making the most of it.

                    Yea as testing goes up so will the kung flu cases. I'm not wearing a mask unless I'm forced to do so because they make my face break out.

                      Perhaps they wear them to demonstrate that they care about the safety of their fellow human beings. Reducing stress has a positive health benefit. I'm not saying you have to but it might be a gift to those around you.

                        What does a mask do? Blocks respiratory droplets coming from your mouth and throat.

                        Two simple demos:

                        First, I sneezed, sang, talked & coughed toward an agar culture plate with or without a mask. Bacteria colonies show where droplets landed. A mask blocks virtually all of them.





                        What about keeping your distance?

                        Second demo: I set open bacteria culture plates 2, 4 and 6 feet away and coughed (hard) for ~15s. I repeated this without a mask.

                        As seen by number of bacteria colonies, droplets mostly landed <6 ft, but a mask blocked nearly all of them.





                        I'm aware that this simple (n=1) demo isn't how you culture viruses or model spread of SARS-CoV-2.

                        But colonies of normal bacteria from my mouth/throat show the spread of large respiratory droplets, like the kind we think mostly spread #COVID19, and how a mask can block them!

                          My mask vs. no mask demonstrations got perfectly summarized in this brief 34 second video. Masks keep your respiratory secretions to yourself! @providence_phc

                          https://twitter.com/providence_phc/s...957233154?s=20

                          Masks as a political/social litmus test or used to shame those who won't (or disabled folks who truly can't!) wear them is a travesty.

                          We wash hands after using the bathroom & wipe noses on tissues. Masks/face shields need to be just another normalized act of hygiene. #MasksWork
                          Well I just got back from reading some slides in the lab and this has completely overwhelmed my ability to keep up with comments and questions. Wow.

                            How do you explain the increase in the death rate? Are we doing too much testing to see if people are alive?

                              This is one of the more reprehensible things that I have seen someone post.
                              48 thousand cases reported today.
