Tornadoes don't come down and dance around the country for 2 years without going away......or else there'd be plenty of tornado deaths.

Tell that to all the people that crawl out of their destroyed home. 
 

Again, it’s about taking precautions. But I understand where some get lost in that.

I happen to be in a high risk group. Currently nothing pisses me off more than to see someone wondering around in the store not wearing a mask.

We had someone come to work last week. Said their spouse was on quarantine and pending a covid test.  The spouse had been sent home earlier in the week due to contact at work and while at home ha

So some are blaming the "media" for all the confusion about wearing masks.  Nope.  Get specific.  The blame goes to the segment of the media that grabs snippets of information and quotes and uses them

So some are blaming the "media" for all the confusion about wearing masks.  Nope.  Get specific.  The blame goes to the segment of the media that grabs snippets of information and quotes and uses them to further an agenda against the person being quoted or the subject he's quoting.  There is PLENTY of real, accurate information on wearing masks out there.  All you have to do is evaluate it.  I get notices every week on the latest info on Covid from National Geographic.  Usually interesting and always pretty accurate.  I read the online version of a couple newspapers.  As long as it's NEWS and not editorials, it's pretty accurate and tracks well with Nat Geo.  If I have a question about it, Google is your friend...I can usually find the answer in someplace like the New England Journal of Medicine.  People with agendas are still quoting stuff that was said or written about mask wearing back in March or April, when we still knew very little about this virus.  And to be honest, the medical people didn't do a good job of explaining the mask rationale back then, instead opting to downplay their importance because N95 masks were scarce and they didn't want people snatching them up while medical workers with Covid had to do without.  You can track the change in the rhetoric about masks...it tracks well with the increased knowledge of the disease, but also tracks well with the increased supply of N95 masks.

But come on.  Use just a little common sense.  Talk, cough, sneeze, sing without a mask and your breath travels unimpeded.  Do it with a mask on and it's slowed down to almost nothing, thus doesn't travel far.  THE MASK IS NOT JUST TO PROTECT YOU, IT'S TO PROTECT OTHERS FROM YOU.  By now the only people who should not know that this disease can have asymptomatic spread are morons and hermits.  Wearing a mask is a consideration to others, and it doesn't matter one tinker's darn if you think you don't have it, or you've already had it, or even if you've already been vaccinated.  THE PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW YOU AND HAVE TO BE IN THE SAME ROOM WITH YOU DON'T KNOW THAT.  Wear the mask as a courtesy to them, if nothing else.  As somebody else said, nothing ticks me off more than a moron not wearing a mask in an indoor public place.  He is shouting, "I'm a self-centered moron who doesn't care about anybody else."

Mary and I get our second shot of the vaccine in a week or so.  We will STILL wear a mask in public indoor spaces, not because we are still freaked out about getting it ourselves, but because we wish to be responsible members of society that have at least a modicum of respect for other people.

So if you didn’t take precautions with a tornado? What would happen?

If you didn’t take precautions with Covid what would happen? 99.9% of the time NADA. 
 

I wear a mask, I’m considerate to others, but all these dumb comparisons.....

It's hilarious now!  😂 

 

So will all of this Covid crap be.....as soon as everyone quits freakin'out and whining about it.  

I guess I’m down the middle about it.  I know plenty who went through it just fine and I don’t know how many may have had it and not known.  But I know a few that have died and a couple long haulers.  My wife is high risk so I really worry about her.  I wear a mask.
