Those stupid idiots are not wearing them to keep disease our.They are meant to keep you from spreading it should you have it and not know it..Now who is the stupid one. There are more stupid people in this world who can't come to grips with this basic fact. Many of them on here. Probably don't wear a seat belt or a helmet if riding a motorcycle either because you don't want others to think you are living in fear.

Wearing a mask is just common courtesy to let others know you care enough to not spread disease to others should you have it and not know it.Something that is lacking on this forum also.

I saw this on another forum yesterday. I have no idea how old the poster is or anything else related to him, but it seemed like a reasonable response. From his tone where he mentions grandfathers and fathers going to war, I'm guessing maybe Baby Boomer age. I bolded his comments here.

Wearing a mask is not a favorite thing of mine, but if it might help with this covid mess and keep it from spreading a bit, and at the same time if someone else might be more comfortable in public seeing me with a mask, I'll wear one without fail. It has absolutely no effect on how I view myself.

I saw a statement made at the first of this pandemic: It went along the lines of, "Our grandfathers and fathers sacrificed and gave up everything at home and went to war in foreign places to keep us safe. All they are asking of us at this time is to stay home when possible and wear a mask when out in the public. Our generation can handle this."

With all of the griping that goes on constantly, sometimes I wonder.


Of course since this is the 24 HCF, YMMV on what this guy's thought are. laugh


It's official. I missed the selfie deadline so I'm Maser's sock puppet because rene and the Polish half of the fubar twins have decided that I am.

People keep talking about the Japanese wearing masks.
They only wear them when they know they are sick...
Americans are wearing them like putting a condom on before going out to a bar, hoping they will get some play...

lol

But we’re not talking about “surgical masks”. We’ve been talking about “cloth masks”. She (a nationally recognized expert on infectious diseases) clearly stated in the article I linked, “cloth masks in my opinion don’t work in any form. They aren’t very good at source control, except for maybe very large particles. And they should not be used in healthcare settings...”.

still lol

Maybe the difference is semantic? I thought “cloth masks” included a subset “surgical masks”, thinking they are made of cloth, but it seems they are made of fabric.

And you’ve mentioned several times the lady is a nationally recognized expert. There are other nationally recognized experts who’ve said masks are effective.

It would be good to compare case increases between similar areas that mandate masks versus don’t.

Well, the sanitary napkins make way better heavy lifting bandages than the masks. I keep a stash in the first aid kits partly for that reason. Fun fact-WW 1 nurses developed the prototype for the modern pad. Cellucotton (sp?) bandages were their material of choice. They soaked up blood better than the cloth bandages.

Please help me reason this through..
If you believe masks are an answer and you are comfortable being mandated to wear one.. why do you care if I don't wear one?
Yours works...right??


There is no threat of "overwhelming the health care system". That's already been proven bogus.

I have a baclava-style mask with a grinning skull silkscreened on it that I wear while riding my Harley. I wear it around my neck. If a place insists that I wear a mask, I just pull it up over my nose.

a box of nitrile gloves at harbor freight was $13.99 today, and they had 6 boxes in stock.

normally they are $7.99 or on sale for $5.99

I'm not pushing the masks but to help you reason through it you need to understand that the mask isn't to protect the person wearing it. It's to reduce the number and range of virus's passed from the person wearing it.....same idea as covering a cough or sneeze, the stuff just doesn't go as far.

Thanks JCM. Yes, I've heard that.
My point was more along the lines of if masks work to protect the wearer from incoming viruses, then what difference does it make to them if I'm wearing one or not?
Here in Oregon it is now required to wear one indoors in public places. So I can walk or drive downtown to get a beer w/o one.. then I have to wear one to cross the threshold of a restaurant.. and once in I can take it off again to enjoy my beer. How does this make any sense?
