I like to just keep this app open on recent so that after a few days I catch up to the last update and go to the newest one. But I’ll be deep in recent and want to comment but everybody’s comments are like 8 days old so I don’t comment. Am I the only one who does this?
@Corey Trevorson, I know no one one is going to see this reply since the comment is already 5 minutes old (it might as well be a year), but I totally agree with it
@Corey Trevorson,I’m always on recent. It’s my nightly routine before bed.
@Corey Trevorson, I always catch up to the last update, but don't leave it for days. If I'm not on the app, it'll eventually close, or if it doesn't, it reloads when opened, back to the beginning so I see no point. Plus, why go through days of pics at a time, then days without any? And there's also the point that you said about comments and commenting
I can't wear a mask, I have acute onset Karenosis
Clearly, you are only in danger until you are seated and then you must be safe while your Ebola-Suited waitress waits your table.
You're being lied to.
Because viruses take breaks while people are seated/eating/drinking.
The bar’s “wokeness” should be sufficient to avoid “dealing with their crap.”
Again, if a business requires mask usage for patronage, use one or go somewhere else (latter advised). If government mandates ubiquitous use, protest firmly. If someone attempts imposition in a public/non-private place, send them to hell.
So we can discriminate against people with health conditions now? Cool.
@huntervandorn, if your condition is aggravated by a mask, imagine how much it'll be aggravated by coronavirus. And no, going to a bar/restaurant isn't necessary.
@huntervandorn, how is that unjust?
@huntervandorn, no, we discriminate against stupidity
@The Lifeguard, maaaaannn, I don't know where you get the self control for this, but I strongly commend you for it. You're a better man/woman/lifeguard than most.
@The Lifeguard, if your condition can be aggravated by coronavirus what are you doing outside of your house? if you care for someone whose condition might be aggravated by the coronavirus what are you doing outside of your house?
@Eat me, hence why this should all boil down to personal opinion. As with most things, if you’re scared of dying from it, don’t do it. Like skydiving.
@The Lifeguard, Actually, fun fact: The usual conditions that are aggravated by a mask, aren't the same ones at high risk with Coronavirus.
So it's kind of pointless.
Also, wearing a mask for 10 feet does nothing, if you are going to remove it after walking that 10 feet.
@Thatoneguymayknow, Gonna stick to doctors' advice, thanks.
@Thatoneguymayknow, but why do most covid patients in need of critical care go under a ventilator (a machine that breathes for you). If people say that they can't breathe through a mask, then why wouldn't they need a machine to make them breathe once they've caught the virus? Maybe you can give us some examples of conditions that are aggravated by masks, but not coronavirus. Including paper authors and journals obviously.
@The Lifeguard, Speaking as someone who has previously been intubated, you’re damn right. If you have a medical condition which you at risk, it just isn’t worth it.
@Thatoneguymayknow, What conditions are actually affected by wearing a mask?
@theduuuude, no because people are stupid inconsiderate jerks. If we have them a choice they would gladly infect everyone if they get the virus simply because they already have it so why not.
@Nellybert , so we looked it up as, a rule for our business, we are firm on requiring some form of face covering and we learned there's literally no medical conditions outside of a handful of skin conditions that would legitimately prevent you from wearing a mask, so we just blanket require all customers to wear a face covering or leave
@Nellybert , Respitory Conditions, and Heat Susceptible Conditions are two I'm most familiar with, because of my wife. When you overheat easily, breathing is an issue, and you can't breath as well through a mask.
@Sven and Otar, There are states that exclude people from having to wear a mask, because of medical conditions. Like PA. But you know, it's just baloney.
It's not like common sense tells us there are medical conditions that can be affecting by masks. It's not like many people get severe headaches from wearing masks, due to lack of oxygen, and increased CO2, or anything.
@The Next Guy, Sure, I'll just go grab you all of those papers to post here in this poorly formatted comment section.
There are many conditions that force you to end up on a ventilator.
You can have a heart attack, and end up on a ventilator.
When you have problems with one system, it can sprial out of control with the rest.
I realize you may not be in the Medical field, so I'm not assuming you would know that.
For your examples, small lungs, and easily overheating.
When you have trouble getting enough oxygen due to smaller lungs than normal, it's aggravated by the fact you get less through a mask, and subsequently more CO2 you expel, but into your lungs.
Very similary, you have problems when you overheat easily, in this weather when someone starts overheating, you start breathing heavily, which increases CO2 expelled, and then brought back in because of the mask, and the lack of oxygen coming in because of the CO2, and the mask just makes the perfect conditions for passing out.
@The Lifeguard, Depending on what advice you are talking about, that can be just fine.
@Thatoneguymayknow, yeah... because you get reduced oxygen... from masks... when doctors and nurses like my roommate have shown your oxygen levels do not go down at all while wearing one and there's no appreciable increase in CO2 levels either, even after a 12hr shift.
I have asthma and I wear one to the gym to work out, do I sweat more? Is it less enjoyable? Sure, but I haven't had an asthma attack over it. It's just bjtching as far as I'm concerned, especially after we read multiple articles stating there are really only skin conditions that prevent the wearing of masks anyway.
PA's medical condition exceptions only extend to essential businesses, not restaurants or anything like that. Besides, if you do have such severe respiratory issues that you can't wear a mask, you honestly should not go out whatsoever. Your wife should stay home while you go out and take care of whatever your household needs, not going out to restaurants and things
@Thatoneguymayknow, besides, there are alternatives that literally protect you from all of that even if that effected you. Face shields. Yeah, they look dumb but they let you protect others without any respiratory increase in discomfort.
But you know, if you aren't willing to wear any kind of face covering, mask or face shield, because of minor conditions you exaggerate to get around that modest discomfort, you really should buck up to the fact and accept you're just a self-centered person. If you actually have such severe reactions to wearing a stupid mask, you really need to be staying home and protect yourself anyway
@Sven and Otar, Funny, because OHSA workers have shown the opposite, with their specific testing tools.
It's also commonsense. Masks cause less air to move, especially as they get wetter. It's not that hard to understand I would think.
Asthma may not be affected, or at least yours, but that doesn't mean others are not.
My wife has issues with breathing, and overheating, and it's impossible for her to breathe for more than a few minutes with a mask. So....
It is not for only essential businesses, it extends to everything, because they require masks everywhere.
I as a rule of thumb, do everything when it comes to going to get things, but there are many more that don't have that luxury. There is real proof masks impede breathing, no matter what the politicized doctors in the media tell you.
It's scientifically testable, and provable that they impede breathing ability. Many thousands of people have spoken up about the problems they have wearing masks because it impedes..
@Sven and Otar, Well, then we get onto the topic of masks effectiveness. Only the sick should wear them, that's that. It's commonsense, and asymptomatic people aren't proven to spread.
You want to wear a mask, you can wear one. But don't force others, especially those healthy to wear them.
Masks don't work.
If there's covid on your phone you're spreading it.
If you're adjusting your mask you're getting it on your fingers.
I'm a germophobe I know what I'm talking about.
@Chula Charlie, if I light this patch of grass, then I'll set the earth on fire and kill everyone. If you're worried that there is covid on your phone, then don't lick your phone. If you're worried that there is covid on your fingers, then don't pick your nose. A mask may or may not stop you from getting the virus (I'm unsure at this point), but that's not the point, a mask is so YOU won't give the virus to someone else, you are irrelevant in this, the mass population is in question. Every so often: WASH/SANATISE YOUR FVCKING HANDS, DON'T TOUCH YOUR FACE (mask isn't your face), WIPE DOWN FREQUENTLY USED ITEMS (i.e phones, light switches, keyboards etc.) There is strong scientifically proven evidence showing that masks are an effective tool for ending this pandemic, and it's people like you slowing us down. Germophobe isn't a qualification.
@Chula Charlie, masks don't guarantee you won't spread the virus. But it might help. There's a possibility it could save lives. Isn't that enough of a reason to wear one? If not, you are selfish, there's no other way to say it.
@The Next Guy, do you really think that not licking your phone will stop the germs on it from getting on your food? I lived as a germaphobe for over a year, I paid attention to everything and most other people don't. The virus spread by touch and if someone sneezes directly towards your face. People touch things they own before putting sanitizer on their hands, things like their purse, wallet, car keys. I see it every weekend we go shopping, I noticed these things because I feared them and other people don't seem to notice what they are doing. If masks worked Covid wouldn't be active in the country by now, it would be dead.
That being said obey the laws of your local area cause not every city in the country have Covid, and if a store or business requires you to wear a mask just remember they can refuse service to anyone who violates the rules of the privately owned land. So wear a mask where you have to.
@StoneFarb, I am in no way selfish. I wear a mask where the rule is enforced, even though i had Corona in February there is no point in me wearing a mask. I just want to go grocery shopping and I follow the rules the businesses make us follow.
@Chula Charlie, Kind of surprised that you validated yourself and opinions by saying you are a germaphobe, but you had COVID... Hmmmm....
@bowlnmike, I live with a guy who handles returns at BestBuy, so no wonder I got it so soon.
