Lysol baby! Though that guy not only caught a severe case of COVID, he ALSO got the shots afterward..........let that sink in, anti-vaxxers.

Not that I really care if you took the vaccine or not, but I can see why we are the laughing stock of the world.

First everyone wanted a vaccine to be made quick. Once we got it, we have people worried about the 'poisonous chemicals' and dont want to take it. Shit, even wearing a masks has become a political thing. Is it really that hard to put on a mask for a short while to prevent the spread?

Day before yesterday, I was in Charleston, SC for work. In the hotel, was getting dressed for the workday, heard someone hacking their brains out in the hallway.. thought nothing of it since it was the hallway and not in my face. People are allowed to cough.

Grabbed my testing equipment and headed out of the room to work.
Saw the housekeeper's cart parked by a few rooms with doors propped open..

Heard the same cough again… strolled by seeing the housekeeper hacking over the clean bed sheets while they floated open and slowly drifted down to spread and cover the bed she was making.
No mask.
Didn't say anything… just filed a mental note and kept on going. Just glad the sheets were being changed lol.

I haven't been sick since 2007.
Flu shot religiously since then.
Negative COVID.
I've had so many shots while serving in the Army that the COVID vaccine was just another shot.
You'll be fine when WWZ comes. The Army created a beast that won't die. Lol.

Out country's intelligence level as a whole is very low... thats why there are so many rich people here that made money off nonsense. The media plays people left and right and clowns on both sides believe it... our entire race war is borderline a class war and no one sees it... they arguing black vs white when soon no one will be able to afford a house... and people are gettingn rear ended daily.

Yes:

https://www.popularmechanics.com/sci...k-differences/

They are harder to make, more rigid, need to be properly fit to be effective, etc. KN are basically just the material but not made to the same standards.

A poorly fit N95 is as useful as a cloth mask.

They used to be readily available, pre-covid. I used to have a TON of them but I took them into work early on when we were having to ration the masks. I had them for welding/soldering because those would actually stop the fumes.

It might just be ease, or they dont want to touch it. I work for a hospital system and obviously have to wear them constantly so I went and sprung for some really nice, comfortable ones. They are so comfortable they kind of became like glasses after a shift, Id leave it on walking to lunch or 5 miles away in my car going home because I truly didnt notice. Especially early spring before it got hot.

BTW I can tell the guy you quoted is an idiot by equating being "scared to death" and wearing a mask. Masks, even 150 years ago when surgeons were wearing them, were ALWAYS about protecting others.

It's funny because I'm pretty sure that no matter what side of this debate you're on, everyone is hoping to see this thread is still alive when waking up. LOL. What's the old Timex watch slogan?

there's 100s within 20 miles of me at home depot and 100s more at lowes within 20 miles.

Which reminds me, i should probably order more respirators and cartridges for work again. Especially if the mandates come down here.

Edit: Amazon has a ton available as well if you dont want to take a trip to home depot/lowes.

Yeah that's fair and I too am guilty of not even realizing I had left it on when I got in the car. I got you beat though, usually didn't get past the parking lot

Since masking was all but non-optional, I went with the U-Mask. Got the Mclaren F1 versions to make it a little more bearable.
You have a pic of one of those? I'm intrigued.

98.5% of new Covid cases ending up in our county hospitals are unvaccinated folks. My daughter is an RN and the last Covid surge just about brought her entire staff to their knees.

Thanks to a bunch of selfish people who never learned how to be team players, here we go again.

Yes, it f'ing sucks. Especially in places that require them everywhere. I went to Vegas last December and I had to wear one basically anytime I wasn't in my hotel room.

Moron? You ought to re-calibrate your humor detector, buddy.

Also, no correlation was made with the general wearing of masks and being scared to death of the Rona. It's pretty clear I'm mocking people who are so scared of it that they do something stupid, like wear the mask in their car or walking by themselves in the park, etc

They signed up to care for folks recovering from surgeries and illnesses, not fools. The current batch of fools should thank their lucky stars that medical staff adhere to the Hippocratic Oath, despite their personal feelings.

Damn I'm so sorry to hear the torture you were put through, must be a nightmare to wear a small piece of cloth/fabric over your face for a short while huh?
