Dropping “SCHLIEREN”into any conversation is guaranteed to make you sound smaht

The petri dish demo was more convincing to me and that was about 20 seconds of a long video

Mask = Face Condom?

The thing they don’t discuss is whether wearing a mask makes you more likely to trap droplets emitted by people who aren’t wearing one.

But my family wears masks and limits our exposure because, well, why not? The penalty for being wrong about not wearing a mask is much larger than the penalty for being wrong about wearing them.

I don’t trust this guy as an authority on what masculine men do.

6. Sobek - July 6, 2020

I wear masks because of my personal risk/reward calculation.

7. Sobek - July 6, 2020

His discussion of how science works bugged me. First, scientists didn’t initially claim masks were ineffective because they didn’t know as much – they did it because they were deliberately lying to people “for their own good.” They wanted to save N95 masks for doctors.

Second, the recognition that scientists will know more in the future because that’s how science works doesn’t seem to apply to global warming, for some reason.

Also the idea that wearing a mask cuts off your oxygen level is so dumb, it’s proof positive that there are total morons on either side of this issue.

9. lauraw - July 6, 2020

I don’t believe in oxygen. Have you ever seen any? Has anyone you know ever seen an oxygen? Nope. This never happens. I rest my case.

I also don’t listen to people who tell me that things are ‘too small’ to be seen. Go sell your fairy dust elsewhere, loons.

*double checks Oxygen filters in masks

Yeah, what Sobek said.

#6 – Masks cause CO2 build up, and that increases blood pressure that results in a stern lecture from you physician, which causes you heart rate to increase, causes panic and the next thing you know a little vessel pops in your brain and turns you into a cabbage.

13. Retired Geezer - July 7, 2020

I’m ok with cabbage… I’m not so happy about Kale.

14. Sobek - July 7, 2020

I guess I have to concede, I’ve never seen an unhappy cabbage…

15. Retired Geezer - July 7, 2020

Maybe Bunk could do some research on Arugula.

16. Jimbro - July 9, 2020

I’ve never seen an unhappy cabbage…

You might see some if they’re mandated to wear masks in stores and outdoors within 6 feet of another head of cabbage
