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

    If that barber has the Rona, they should be staying at home quarantined. How long is society supposed to wear masks? Who gives the all clear?

    That's how the whole quarantine thing started. You MIGHT be asymptomatic, so stay home for two weeks. That was in February. It's September.

    But there ARE plenty of asymptomatic people. We can test to see if you had it. You know that right?

    Yep, it's all about 'feelings'. I'm flabergasted that we, as a nation, think it's about 'feelings' and 'rights'.

    Maybe this guy will figure it out, eventually.

    And there are plenty of times where driving at the speed limit, and on your side of the road just doesn’t matter. It is very low risk. Not everyone lives where it is crowded and a bunch of people are on the road at the same time.

    Again, assess the risk and act accordingly.

    One set of arbitrary rules does not need to be applied everywhere, all the time.

    Face filter. Nice. At work I call mine my face panty.

    Which is why the mask isn't to be worn 24/7 but rather when mingling with other people.

    For the last six months - I've been carrying a gun and wearing a mask while interacting with people.

    Although I have not completed all of my calculations, I suspect the mask may have done a better job in protecting me against harm. Just saying ....

    You are completing calculations on this? You should post those. Of course your chances of catching a virus is more likely than an assault (well maybe not in NYC). Maybe washing your hand and social distance helped too? Common sense does not need to be calculated.

    There is a case where one person was positive, went to a choir practice, attempted basic social distancing, and still infected 47 people...

    There is also a documented case in the St Louis where two barbers, who were positive, saw over 150 customers while they were positive and didn't realize it..
    They wore masks, and insisted all their customers wear masks...

    Not one positive case could be traced back to them...

    but of course, if you ask a mask conspirator, they "don't do anything"

    Just like hand sanitizer, masks are fairly easy to make and by the time everyone and their uncle finally started churning them out and they got to store shelves the panic buying was over. Walmart, Target, and Sam's Club have been packing hand sanitizer and masks in all over the store for probably a couple months now. Plus all the hand sanitizers contaminated with methanol probably have people leery of buying all the mystery brands.

    Mask conspirators have no concept of concealment, cover, and blending in...
