I heard that a color bracelet system is getting used to show others your comfort level in interactions. That makes it easy for me.... Ill avoid anyone wearing a colored bracelet. Not the kind of person Id care to interact with anyways
@biolojist, yet another chapter in the endless "REEEEE! Why doesn't the whole world see how SPECIAL I am?!" book of modern society
@biolojist, oh, I thought the bracelets were for “dating” purposes. Like so people can tell at a glance if you wanna bone guys, girls, both, or neither. I haven’t been out in a while though, so I have no idea what the kids are doing these days.
@biolojist, had me in the first half.
@dandyhandy, is there a bracelet for “I fvck anything that moves.”?
Asking for a friend.
That friend is me.
@theduuuude, When I was at Uni, the LGB Society (it was a simpler time then, fewer letters, only two genders) ran Club nights at the bar with a colour coding system like that - red meant leave me alone, yellow/orange meant maybe, green meant I don’t plan on going home alone.
@Nellybert , when I was in uni we just guessed and I had sex with girls
@biolojist, I mean if I could wear a bracelet that says "dont freakin talk to me please" I would, all the time.
@FriendlyWalrus, the Masked Singer Shop has the "Don't Talk To Me" hoodies for sale
@dandyhandy, it is, but it’s harder to turn that into something to bitch about
@Suicide Squad Sucks, what’s wrong about broadcasting how you feel about social interaction? Avoids awkwardness by both parties. I don’t see the snowflakiness in that.
Semi-related, how many people have read that news story of the Florida parents who sent their kids masks on to be cultivated to see what bacteria was on it? (And before someone mistakenly sees this as being pro or anti mask it isn’t as the experiment was far to small to be conclusive in anything other than calling for further study)
@ThatGuyx79, I haven't heard that, but I'd be interested to know the answer.
@No Lollygagging, link to the site were they released their findings:
And while refinding this I also found two more studies that show similar results (however one was conducted in China so I have no idea of that played a significant role or not):
@ThatGuyx79, So i checked the pubmed number you provided and it took me to a hypertension article from 1973...
I still wear mine if a place is really crowded.
@Cruxio , I wear mine because it makes people not talk to me
@Cruxio , because you might have coronavirus?
@CrazyRightWinger, it isn't just about Covid. I usually get sick 3 or 4 times a year and haven't been sick at all since before this thing started. Staying the hell away from people and everything we've been doing has helped me dodge my usual illness, so I don't really see a reason to stop just because we're getting this one taken care of (finally).
I do think that everything can and should go back to normal once we're clear of the threat, but I will say that I hope the sanitization continues, its been pretty nice to not have caught a cold this last year.
@No Lollygagging, downvoters are team Common Cold I guess, and miss me with the "it builds a healthy immune system bullshìt", it doesn't and we don't get better at fighting it, we just get sick.
Honestly Why are people still wearing masks at this point? Either you’re not scared of the virus and you never wore a mask in the first place, or you are scared of the virus in which case get the vaccine. The only reason I could see is if you’re immunocompromised and can’t get the vaccine, but that’s not many people.
@tampon thief, I think (and I’m just speculating here) there’s still a lot of people who are concerned about getting the vaccine since it’s been out less than a year and there hasn’t really been enough time so far to study its long term effects. I myself haven’t even gotten the vaccine, but that’s because I’ve been out of the country since mid-April and never got the chance to receive it before I left.
Hopefully by the first or second week in July once I’m back in the States I’ll be able to get my first shot.
@tampon thief, browsing through social media I'm seeing a lot of reasons unrelated to the virus, such as being self conscious on how they look, like to keep their identity concealed, like to look like a ninja, etc etc. There's people out there trying to promote it as the permanent new normal, it's ridiculous. Then yeah, there's those who are still paranoid of the virus and/or vaccine.
@tampon thief, I’ve gotten the vaccine and I still wear a mask. Mostly so I can avoid interacting with other people.
@MrJojo, thank god, the people here are reasonable. On Reddit everyone is fighting to keep the mask and I'm just... Dumbfounded. If you're wearing it because you have to, you were going to do that regardless of a pandemic. But these people who don't want the world to go back... I'm astounded.
@tampon thief, Because they're children who don't react well to change.
Me: "Ah it looks like you a bìtch"
Where’s the “it smells like bitch in here” meme???
I still wear a mask because I can’t get the vaccine. But I sometimes get judgement for it. Better then getting sick and messed up.
Look! It’s a non-vaccinated person!
