Bold to assume people who do that can read
@stevebons, i think most the people who wear them below their nose are fully aware. They are just obligated to wear them and so they’re going through the motions trying to breath easier while wearing them.
@Snarfel Burger, yep I agree
@stevebons, the irony is that covering your mouth protects others, while covering your nose protects you. So their spite endangers themselves.
@occasionalmutant, well covering your nose probably protects other people too just not as much. And honestly putting yourself at risk is a risk to other people in itself but yes I do like the irony
@Snarfel Burger, aka, being dumbasses and being fully aware of it.
@stevebons, you obviously can’t
@occasionalmutant, the mask is only to protect others from you possibly "asymptomatic spreading" most masks will say that they do not protect from infection, regardless of if its over your nose. My opinion is that the mask nazis like this lady are just the same type of people who would report their neighbors for harboring people in their attic during WW2.
@Mag3rPayne, amen, stay strong and we will win soon enough. IF YOURE SCARED GET A RESPIRATOR. Bold to assume anyone cares about their fellow man, especially when asked to care. Goodwill cannot be forced damn nazis
If I can stick my finger in your nose then you better watch out because I might raid your boogers like a giraffe
I hate the stupid masks but if you’re gonna wear one do it right
@BigJohnson86, I disagree, not wearing one removes you from society and prevents you from accessing basics like food. Wear it wrong in protest.
“But I can’t breathe.”
Oh stop, we all know you’re a mouth breather anyway.
@CunningLinguist, haha! Takes one to know one.
Look, another dipshït who thinks they’re safe because masks.
Can we just send everyone that thinks we need masks and this indefinite lockdown to NYC and burn the bridges? Please let the rest of us get back to living.
If the virus was actually more dangerous than the flu I'd get all the fuss, but it's really not, the government shouldn't be forcing people to wear mask, and if a business wants people to wear them people are gonna wear it anyway they please
Every damn time my mom talks to someone she pulls her mask down. Had one dude go "are u serious? I can hear you fine you're just slurring your words" she was big big mad
Yeah I get it, wear a mask. But why is this in funny pics.
Wait.... if you breathe IN your nose but OUT your mouth, it would still stop you spreading the virus right?
Wont help stop you catching it.
So do her thighs
Seems a bit much doesn’t it? She could just wear a name tag that says “Karen”.
@Miguel OHara, seems a bit much? She's literally just pointing out how they're supposed to be worn
It goes in the trash where it belongs. Breathe free or die!
If the case numbers sky rocket like they are then that means masks don’t do squat!
@RayFinkelsFunBags, you aren’t entirely wrong. My mom faithfully wore her mask and uses hand sanitizer all the time and still got it.
@RayFinkelsFunBags, whoa whoa whoa, this is not the subject matter that you can apply reason too. What the wtf is wrong with you? Next thing you know you’ll be questioning the Talking Heads on the magic box. You are dangerous! You must be a witch!
@Sir Borksalot , wearing the mask encourages you to touch your face more. It also does not protect YOU from getting it, only prevents you from possibly spreading it if you are "asymptomatic". For me, wearing the mask causes my warm exhalation to loosen nasal mucus, developing a runny nose, which then moisten the mask ruining its efficacy anyways. Disregarding the fact that my work says I can't enter the site with a runny nose. Its a catch 22.
@Sir Borksalot , as did my parents. I, on the other hand, have to be gagged before I put a mask on and have never caught it. I’m a teacher so lack on social contact isn’t the issue. Passive immunity is wild man.
Too bad that mask doesn’t work any better than a fvcking t shirt. No biosecurity knowing trash
@philbert15, I’ve seen what makes you people cheer. Your [downvotes] mean nothing to me.
Suck my d covid fake
You're just trying to block the spit from your mouth actually. It's not an airborne virus.
@Tylerdurdin, you are blocking moisture from your body spraying everywhere and on everyone. Your nose allows for the same respirtory juices to escape your body as your mouth. Besides, have you ever seen a sneeze in slow-mo?
Mask goes over the nose please
@Tylerdurdin, It spreads through airborne transmission. What are you talking about?
@Gatsby, Tyler smells of troll.
@Tylerdurdin, are you trolling or really dense?
@Dr Grimmwell, not fully airborne. They say it can be aerosolized and you can get it thru tiny droplets but it's not fully airborne or else we'd have to wear n95 masks.
@Dr Grimmwell, and who doesn't cover their nose when they sneeze?
@Tylerdurdin, bad news here, according to a 2010 study, 25% of people don't. And less than 5% do it in a way that's effective.
@Tylerdurdin, I read this, and the replies, and your replies to the replies. I really hope this was a troll. Surely 11 months of being constantly told what it is and how to prevent spreading it can't have gone wasted..
@Gatsby, I think what he means is airborne vs droplet transmission. There really is a profound difference. With airborne transmission, the mask wouldn't help at all and we'd all have caught it by now. It doesn't need moisture to spread. Droplet transmission is what the mask is meant for.
And to end the argument once and for all, where do they put the swab to test for COVID? Should we not cover that orifice?
@Mantis Tobaggan, not a troll but when I see 99 percent of people wearing a mask around here and they keep saying that the numbers are going up I don't think the masks are doing much.
@Tylerdurdin, the masks aren't a magical cure. Most people seem to think masks mean that other rules don't apply, the masks block most droplets that come out, and the virus can only travel that way. A lot of people don't wear it over their nose, or just on their chin, and they don't social distance. That isn't even counting sanitizing your hands, not touching your face, cleaning your masks, or changing out the disposable one every time you take it off. It isn't just "I wear a mask so I am doing my part!"
Also, normal medical masks don't keep much out, they keep your nasty mouth wetness from spreading.
If we want it to stop spreading we need to tackle this thing properly.
@Tylerdurdin, wrong https://digg.com/video/infrared-camera-covid-19-particles
@Dr Grimmwell, to be fair, if I feel I’m gonna sneeze I pull up my mask and cover my face...I’m not an animal
@Tylerdurdin, HOW DARE YOU SPEAK TRUTH YOU GODS DAMNED MOTHERFÜCKER!!!! You are evil incarnate for bringing reality into this.
@Gatsby, sorry. You’re ignorant and I’m tired of explaining this shït. Whatever you do, do not vote. You obviously put zero effort into your opinions.
