Looks like the bottom of the face mask market has dropped significantly.

    I never bought any. I’m still using a box of N95s I bought years ago. I never panicked over bottled water or TP either.

    Suply finally caught up with demand. In the fall/winter when all the nitwits who congregate in closed spaces and catch either Covid or seasonal flu it will reverse.

    I’m still using the free ones I get here & there, when needed for stores & such.

    Probably because people have figured out they do not work, it says so on the box itself.

    "COVID 19 virus particle size is 125 nanometers (0.125 microns); the range is 0.06 microns to .14 microns," the post said. "The N95 mask filters down to 0.3 microns. So, N95 masks block few, if any, virions (virus particles)."

    The “pro maskers” will argue that a mask blocks droplets of moisture that contain virus. I’m not a pro masker, nor a doctor, nor a medical device specialist btw.

    You guys need to understand how the fascists [leftists] operate:

    They take a basic truth, then factor in simitruths and disinformation until the argument seemingly supports their position. When you attack the argument as being inherently false they bring up the the grain of truth at the center of the argument. It's basically a form of strawman. Easily defeated if informed but one has to stay educated on the facts. Down side is it requires self awareness (and higher order inteligence) to realize one has lost a logical argument so attempting to counter leftists with facts and reason is generally an exercise in futility.

    I believe that if the people don’t comply, they’ll release a much more dangerous virus.

    Wasn’t revision 3 of the scientific explanation that wearing a mask protects others by significantly reducing the release (and distance) of airborne particulate?

    I am not a doctor but my Dermatologist is smoking hot.

    I have one like this I use when someplace requires it. Watchmen inspired me to find a yellow one, but I might order a Rorshach. Haven't seen the need to buy any disposable masks.

    Here are some good links on masks, there are significantly more published data on reason why masks do not work then there are having a benefit. Kids being forced to wear them to me is child abuse as they are not a target. Folks will have to make their own judgement but I don't think its not right to mandate and enforce every single person to wear one because Fauci says so.....

    Forgot this regarding "droplets" ..

    National Academies of Sciences Rapid Expert Consultation on the Effectiveness of Fabric Masks for the COVID-19 Pandemic (NAS 2020), which concludes, “The evidence from…laboratory filtration studies suggests that such fabric masks may reduce the transmission of larger respiratory droplets. There is little evidence regarding the transmission of small aerosolized particulates of the size potentially exhaled by asymptomatic or presymptomatic individuals with COVID-19.”

    I can't believe I have to explain this at such a late date but the role of the mask is to stop the saliva that acts as the carrier.

    I don't care if you wear one or not but not understanding the role at this point is just sad.

    I saw an ad - buy a new shirt and get a free matching mask.

    Exactly. I've seen all kinds of studies, except one that compares getting spit, sneezed, or coughed at by someone wearing a mask versus someone not wearing a mask.

    Like you, I'm not taking a stand on whether one should or should not wear a mask, but I know that if someone is going to spit, sneeze, or cough at me, I'd prefer they be wearing a mask.

    So Fauci was right?

    I bought 8 cotton/poly neck gaiters for $18 and just wash them. They have other uses such as head wraps for the cycle.

    I abhor mask wearing.

    Let's have a spitting contest. You have to wear a mask, I don't. Guess who wins?
