Oh, and this is post number 1776!* That ought to mean something, but 1776 doesn't ring much of a bell anymore to me. "Bell" get it? Liberty bell? Wait, did they they throw that out too, due to wokeness and that crack?
Here's the question about these face masks. We are told that the masks are for other's benefit. No, they can't screen out all the Kung Flu germies. They can prevent droplets from flying from here to there and everywhere... up to 6 +/- 0.01 ft. (I give an eight inch tolerance for people not being centered on their appropriate floor stickers.)
Wait, what's the question? OK, why are we told that these masks must be over our noses in addition to our mouths? Do droplets come flying out of our noses too, other than during the sneezing process, at which point, I don't recommend catching it all in one's face mask anyway?
I haven't experienced this, personally. I have seen spittle fly out of my mouth though, especially when I'm in an argument about the mandatory wearing of face diapers. It's great when they catch the sunlight, and just ballisticly settle in the spinach bin at the grocery. I've just gotten a real attitude about the germophobia at this point. That attitude about germs is "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em."
* There are 2 or 3 fewer posts than this, though, due to database table incrementation after deletes. I figured out how to fix it a year ago or so but may not have taken any notes ...
