    You're checking other drivers for masks?

    Says the guy who claims P100 respirators aren't useful protection against infection by SARS-CoV-2. :rolleyes:

    So we should refer to it as a minor study rather than a major one?

    In my own discussions with my doctors I get the impression that masks have an effect but a minor one in containing the spread of the disease. They feel that they don't really protect from aerosols which can transverse the masks easily. They consider them somewhat effective for the larger droplets produced by coughs and sneezes. My own conclusion is that they are harmless and represent somewhat of a placebo for the public. I wear them just to placate others.

    Two things are certainly effective in combating the virus in what I have read. One is to stay out of range of the breathing and speaking of other people. The other is immunity. I have avoided infection by staying away from other people. As an example, I wait outside the local post office until it is empty of customers. I ask the delivery people to wait outside while I get payment. The outbreak will rage on, masks or no masks, until enough people are vaccinated to reach herd immunity. I think the virus has proven that it isn't bothered by masks.

    The answer? Get vaccinated as soon as you can.

    Would you expect a virus engineered for gain of function by mad scientists and career bureaucrats to NOT run amok?

    The government cannot control a virus any more than it can control the drug habits of humans.

    Spreading screwy conspiracy theories only serves to mask the real problems.
    The government can control the virus.

    Check? You mean look out of my truck's window? lol. It's easy to notice a driver wearing a mask. It gives me a great laugh.

    How's your underground bunker coming along?

    So you can't refute the statement and live in a world where emoji's are used as thoughts and arguments. Explain an awful lot about how you never provide an original thought and can only attempt to trash talk.

    You have no basis for any thought that is not provided by your masters.

    Say the guy who argues with statements provided by others and could not recognize the truth if it bit him in the butt.

    No, but you are supporting a law that makes it illegal for them not to wear a mask while driving 9as long as YOU approve of the mask).

    Uh huh.
    An absurd misrepresentation of my views.

    I'd like to have high-quality respirators available for everyone and not require anyone to wear a face covering.

    You already lost the debate. N95 (and better) respirators, worn properly, protect against SARSAP-CoV-2.

    Why are you misleading people about respitators?

    I apologize for incorrectly attributing someone else's remarks to you.

    Still, I think your post constitutes a personal attack.

    Is that what you think protects against SARS-CoV-2? Interesting.

    I'm not sure how paranoia believes one will be protected. I go to work and interact with people, as well as go to bars, like a normal person would. I'm not sure how people so terrified of this virus with an extremely low mortality rate and a high false-positive testing rate, operate. They probably borrow groceries from neighbors through a window or something lol.

    Look at YOUR past post. You know the ones where you stated that the N95 MASK is the same as a respirator. Caught you in yet another lie.

    Stating the truth about you may be considered a personal attack by you but in fact is only exposing, again, your lies and lack of knowledge on the subject.

    Hour repetitive lies only expose that you no nothing on this subject and further prove it with every post you make.

    You made a personal attack by misquoting me and attacking me for your own mistake. Shows your agenda and desire to attack me.

    I will give you this, at least you admitted your primary error, now if you would just man up and admit that the rest of what you post is false you would have made a large gain.
