We have all been seeing the face diapers being donned again for Season 3 of the Kung Flu PanicFest. All the fashion magazines recommend we accessorize in order to round out our appearances. Seeing as Cosmo magazine hasn't come to the house in about 25 years - accidentally, but we didn't want to stop the bikini pictures from coming to the mailbox - I don't know if these face diapers are part of "the look" now.
I do know that if some SCIENTIFIC EXPERT, perhaps our beloved Dr. Fauci, has again recommended we don the masks, well who am I to argue, especially through a stack of them, as it comes out broken and unreadable anyway? If Dr. Fauci told me ... (Ahh, crap, I got Aerosmith in my head again.)
The thing is, this new Delta brand virus, as opposed to COVID CLASSIC, is said to be a couple of thousand times more contagious in terms of spreading viral load through our orifices. (I'll just stick with one orifice for now - no, I mean for this post too, dammit.) I would figure it's not linear, but we should probably be stacking up a few masks, maybe 5 or 10 thick, at this point, to get that same protection we had before for the Classic. (I mean, nobody with a mask on got sick, right?) As Peak Stupidity has admonished you all before, C'mon non-experts! It's ALL layering these days!
These face masks get contaminated with the Kung Flu,
If we are to take this new Delta brand virus seriously, we'd better start properly disposing of these things. I just don't see these $133 + tax and shipping cans where I need them, that is, everywhere. Please don't get me wrong. I don't want to argue with the EXPERTS. I'm just curious. I may find myself sneezing behind the wheel of a large automobile. Where is my beautiful yellow steel trash can? You may ask yourself, "how did we get here?"

I just noticed that Peak Stupidity had a metric shit-ton of mask posts back last Spring and late Winter. They all have this same Kung Flu Stupidity topic key.
