    Given that my life, and the lives of those I care about, are on the line, I'm going to err on the side of caution.

    Wearing a mask may not exactly be the "silver bullet". But I have every reason to believe that it's a good bit safer than NOT wearing one.
    Hey man,

    I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything. I have no medical expertise. My biggest claim to fame in that field may be passing high school Biology. If anyone takes any medical advice from me, God help them!

    I get the err on the side of caution. As I've said, I got to believe masks help to some degree.

    My purpose for opening my pie hole was not to claim any virology expertise. My hope is that people really start to think and challenge what the group think is. You are absolutely right. Virtually all doctors, scientists, etc agree. But what have those experts accomplished? We've done it their way and we are literally no better off right now.

    I'll tell you why I do not believe pretty much anything they say. My quote from Fauci is accurate. Everyone will say 'circumstances change' and of course they do. But Fauci has directly contradicted himself more times than I can count.

    What's coming? Not exactly a bold prediction here. But this will be so telling. For the last few weeks, Fauci is telling us how the booster shot is unnecessary. But we follow the science, right? The data, Pfizer, Moderna. The science tells us that Fauci is wrong. Soon, Fauci will change his mind yet again and tell us we will all die without that booster shot. I would bet a year's salary on this. It's predictable. So he's either lying to us now, or he's an idiot and not following the science. Or both. But this is the leader of that group of all doctors, scientists. This is the guy that so many follow blindly. I don't care if it's a scientist, a car salesman or a plumber. I run from someone with a track record like his.

    I'm done talking about this topic. Sadly, we're all entrenched in our beliefs. But I do hope we all start to think for ourselves and evaluate our so called experts on their results. It's a scary proposition because, honestly, I don't think we have answers.

    Or because I look at facts. Sweden deaths have outperformed most nations, without implementing mask mandates. That's just a fact.

    As a nation, case counts were the highest when mask compliance was at its peak.

    But don't take my word for it. Let's see what God's gift to science has to say about it:

    "wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it's not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is."

    Perhaps science isn't for Lord Fauci either?
    Sure. Whatever. I'll send a note to the American Medical Association telling them the entire medical establishment is wrong with masking because of your personal theories and perception of data.

    Not A Difficult COVID Choice

    For over 200 years, doctors, nurses, hospital workers all over the world have been scrubbing their hands and arms, wearing masks, gloves, sterilized garments ect to minimize catching or spreading infection.

    Why are we now doubting these basic hygiene measures?

    The ease of transmission and high risks of CoVid infection, with lots of unknown long-term effects, pain, death, high costs of hospitalization to everyone in the world, dictates that everyone must do everything using all means they can at individual level to contain its spread.

    Wombat is right. It's not a difficult choice. When in doubt err on the safe side. Mask up, glove on, scrub your hands after picking on bar girls' anus and kittles, pucker up and hope the virus won't' kill you, your bar GFs, friends, family, children.

That's a great way to go thru life.
    I'm afraid that no one will be able to explain it to you. To maximize your survivability, it is best if you host a Covid party while California hospitals are not at full capacity so that you are ensured a hospital bed.

Of course it does! Would it have stopped Covid? No. No way in hell. Even Lord Fauci admitted as much.

    I believe we know very little about this virus, as evidenced by the results. But our experts have to say something, right? Wear a mask! Get vaxxed! But yet on it rages. And I would feel very differently if we didn't have breakthrough cases. But our experts sold us this vaccine as something it is not. If we take the CDC figures as fact, we have at least, and very conservatively, 10% of new cases are breakthrough cases. But again, they tell us most of the breakthrough cases are asymptomatic. Which means we don't have a clue how many carriers are out there because there is no reason for an asymptomatic vaccinated person to be tested.

    I realize I sound like a conspiracy theorist. But damn, our leaders have been wrong at every turn. We're no closer to a solution yet we still hang on their every word? No thank you.
    I don't think science is for you.

In surgery, they wear a mask too. When I spray paint, I wear a mask so that I don't suck the droplets into my lungs. I also spoke to 2 physicians that are die hart Trump supporters. They told me the same thing. Had everyone wore masks, we could have stopped the Covid.

    If people really care about this great country, or saving American businesses, they'd stop being a fucking pussie and wear the goddam masks and stop bitching and crying that their fucking rights are violated by private business trying to protect their livelihood.

    I have made a decision to live my life. I stopped watching the news after the election and I am much happier. They are slowly destroying are great country, it is so sad. Nobody ever talks about the devastating financial consequences if we shut down again and believe me they are trying to lock us down again. Thank God I am in Texas.

    What I don't understand anymore is why do we continue to follow advice from people that have been consistently wrong. Granted, this is unprecedented. However, think about what we've been told.

    Masks are pointless. No, wait. Masks work: well, everywhere I went last year, mask compliance was really good at the height of new infections.

    Vaccines work: Well, clearly we know now that they don't last. Back to masks even for vaccinated.

    We're only at risk indoors: many of these outbreaks are from outdoor events. See p-town outbreak.

    Shut down the schools. Open them because it doesn't infect children as much. Just kidding, now we might be closing them again.

    Covid's bad. The lambda variant is worse. The gamma variant is worse. Now Delta is worse. And just because we have to up the fear mongering, today I learn about 'delta plus'.

    It is endless fear mongering. Our president and governors are on TV telling us "you will die". What scares me is how do you escalate from there? Hold tight, we'll find out. They have found how powerful fear is. And that's not to say this virus is a joke. But I am done listening to these so called experts that, 2 years later, are still at square 1. And that's why I'm heading to the zona and what happens, happens.

    You mention being in control. I think that's the hardest part for us. My own opinion is that's why the experts have sold us on masks. I don't think a piece of cotton is terribly effective. Surely it provides some protection. But I think there is a large element of feeling like a mask gives us some level of being in control when in fact, we're just not. Depressing talk. Can't wait to get back to HK to forget about this for a week.
    Good news.

    Party on.

    If you were fully vaccinated, then you are 99.99 % protected.

    If not vaccinated? Just wait till you see your health insurance premium next year.

This is textbook type material that people will be reading about for years to come. We are making history right now whether you like it or not. I do believe things will get even more F'd up before they get better.

    A true test of discipline, strategy, and common sense.
