My sister brought me and my old lady a couple of these stretchy foam almost spandex-like material masks because we couldn't find any. I wore it to Walmart the other day, which was literally the first time I've left the house since March 13th, my old lady has done ALL the grocery shopping by herself since then. I have a big totally unkempt mountain man beard, which made it really difficult to wear the damned mask. It kept sliding up my face and covering my eyes, I kept having to tug at it to keep it down over my face. Which just puts any germs I may have inadvertently touched right on my mask for me breathe it into my lungs. And I was HIGHLY aware of what my hands were doing. I didn't touch SHIT unless I absolutely had to. I was also hyper-aware of whatever everyone ELSE'S hands were doing too. Prior to going to walmart, I stopped by the local post office to mail out bills, and watched some guy grab the door handle and immediately touch his face as soon as he walked in. ::)

And not to be racist (which usually means something racist is coming, but I don't give a fuck, it's an honest observation of what I truthfully saw with my wittle bitty eyeballs.), but the majority of white people I saw shopping in Walmart were wearing masks. A select few were not. They appeared to be the poor trailer park dwelling, meth smoking, and/or faith-healing pentacostal types. You know... MORONS. The majority of black people I saw shopping in Walmart were NOT wearing masks, and only one party of black people WERE wearing masks... and I think it was actually a store employee, so they don't even count. So if we're gonna mention that coronavirus effects the black community at "a disproportionate rate"... (which almost insinuates there's some kind of prejudice going on there, doesn't it?) ...then maybe there's a good fucking reason why, like they aren't following the fucking recommendations as much as other people are.

Down in middle Georgia (and I'm talking the absolute center of the state, just northeast of Macon), most people do not wear masks. And those that do are a mixed bag racially speaking. Maybe 25% of people wear masks total. People practice common sense social distancing and sanitizing and that's it. And many of the black people there are full blown Republicans, which gives you an idea as to the cultural dynamic of the area.

For me personally, i have extra reasons (extremely young family members) for doing what I do, which is basically go insane on 91% isopropyl alcohol on all pin pads, gas pumps, my hands, anything i touch, etc. And i make a good effort not to touch my face until I've done so. If it was just me I'd say bring the virus on  :biggungrin: and get it over with. Although I'm honestly in that group of people that had a strong, bizarre flu-like cold yielding extra chest congestion in December of last year. I have no idea obviously but if I had to guess, i am already immune.

I have not worn a mask. People are doing anything they can to cover their faces with something to fit the newly enforced social norm of mask wearing. The truth is that only N95 masks (or extremely similar) make a real difference. If you can smell something while your mask is on, could you not be capable of inhaling a virus? That Alyssa Milano picture quadz posted recently tells all. It's a joke. Be smart, be empathetic, sanitize, and social distance. That is what matters.

Why has Cali done so well and NYC so badly? I'll tell you one huge reason (IMO). Subways. Confined spaces that everyone crams into.

Posting this now without proofreading. An entire paragraph was lost due to my phone wigging out.

Yep, me too. Christmas Day at my sisters, she asked me if I had lung cancer... and even before then, I was beginning to think... maybe I do. Because I stayed sick and felt as bad as a green stepped on turd for about 2 and 1/2 months. I've never had flu that long. Usually just a week and then it starts to subside, and I can usually function normally WITH the flu. I was bed ridden and knocked flat on my ass the whole time this year. I had gotten a super duper serious case of poison ivy just prior to it as well. My arms swole up like watermellons and I had to go the hospital. They put me on antibiotics and prednisone. And right after I stopped taking the prednisone and had about 5 days left on antibiotics, I started getting the flu or whatever it was.

I think it probably WAS just the flu, it was just a seriously strong strain of it this year.

Maybe this is the beginning of a trend that will become normal. Maybe we've kicked diseases asses for so long, natures finally catching up with our efforts and viruses are getting stronger.

Wow.... Interviews with doctors and footage of people saying the virus is dangerous but the lockdown is more dangerous. Obviously not appropriate. Glad i watched it before the thought police got ahold of it.

Edit: thanks quadz

She was saying something really similar to "Stats show that it's not dangerous to people under 60 with no health problems." Is that absolutely true? Would you bet your house and everything you own on it? I wouldn't. So maybe they're being cautious and evading liability by applying their "harmful or dangerous content" guideline there.

I posted somewhere else where Youtube had taken down Varg Vikernes' channel. He was the black metal musician who was convicted of murder and church burnings back in the 90's and has since been released from prison and has made a bunch of videos about self-sufficient survivalism, paganism, etc. He was basically a neo-nazi early on in prison, but kinda pivoted to a more pagan viewpoint, yet still somewhat "racist" in that he disapproves of race mixing. He really never talked about anything overtly racist on his channel, but youtube banned him anyway... for NOTHING really. One day they just cut him off and wouldn't give him an honest explanation of why.

I'm not a "fan" of the guy. He's got some interesting viewpoints, and I don't agree with some of them, but none of it was inflammatory, not anymore than the rest of the endless spiteful hateful political shit-slinging that goes on elsewhere all over youtube on a daily basis.

Youtube just ain't the place for libertarianism to freely flourish.

Sadly libertarianism (the sensible variety) doesn't flourish nearly enough pretty much anywhere these days. As a citizenry we've taken many things for granted. A lot of people lately that have never been staunch, outspoken supporters of the Bill of Rights are suddenly saying "man, this shit suuuucks" when just an ounce of freedom is taken away. You have to have some foresight and understand the "slippery slope" concept to fully appreciate the constitution IMO.

As for the doctor in the video that said that, that is her 1st amendment right. To value the accuracy of her statement according to statistics is to assume the statistics are accurate themselves (and I'm sure you remember the bikini quote). With no absolute guarantee of what is the unabridged truth, might as well let her say her piece (IMO of course). And the bigger issue is that social media companies claim to be platforms for free speech while taking a partisan editorial approach to what they edit, censor, shadow ban, and "fact check". But Trump signed an executive order that is supposed to address this issue. We'll soon see if that holds any water or if it just more of the typical shameless dog and pony show.
