Masks as magical thinking

Except THEY DO, unobstructed cough can carry droplets with the virus across entire rooms. Which is exactly why you want a masks to limit the spread.

Masks are primarily a protection FROM YOU. If you are going to the polls, do EVERYONE ELSE a favor and wear one.

They help, but if you are very seriously concerned about your own health then mailing in a ballot is the only sure way to prevent catching Covid-19 while voting.

How do you hold a maskless covid-19 carrier accountable for infecting people around him?


On 8/6/2020 at 9:35 AM, AntonToo said:

Because you "pee" out of your mouth and "pee droplets" travel with the air flow for many feet.


P.S. do not wear pants on your head.

I suggest you review the explanation of how masks work. You don't need any training to have one on and limiting the reach of your cough droplets.


On 8/6/2020 at 9:52 AM, AntonToo said:

Just as I suspected you just repeat the same thing and can't meaningfully respond to the fact that masks obstruct covid-19 carrying droplet flow.


On 8/6/2020 at 10:00 AM, AntonToo said:

There you go again.

Fact: masks obstruct covid-19 carrying droplet flow.

Maybe in your next post you can address it.

It's a video that discusses at lengh how the masks work.

Do you have Alzhimer's maybe?

Pissing in the storm grade wind, from 5-6 feet above ground is what droplets traveling with your cough looks like

Masks obstruct that covid-19 carrying droplet flow, limiting their reach.


Calling that simple to understand mechanism as "magical thinking" is just silly.


No one cares,  Dr. Detroit.

You don't understand the science of simple cough droplet travel mechanism?

Maybe you need to watch the video again, turn on your brain this time.

Thats a lot of words to say nothing at all.

Someone coughs a few feet from you at a store. How do you "look out" for yourself?

What I don’t understand is how matters of basic medical science is made into a political issue on the right.

I can’t think of stuff like that coming from the left.


On 8/7/2020 at 5:55 AM, AntonToo said:

Funny you bring that up, as HCQ has so far been yet another example of rightwingers denying basic medical science.

HCQ, according to serious studies, does not work against covid-19 as either treatment or prophylactic. FDA has revoked it's emergency use authorization of HCQ almost two months ago.

There is only one narrow not-yet completely counter to science use of HCQ in combination with zinc and etc in very early stages of infection. There are studies pending on that...but even if that narrow scenario pans out, if it takes a week for your Covid test to come back this cocktail is of very limted use.


Niether "Gender dysphoria" nor "Dehumanization of the human fetus..." are matters of basic medical science.




On 8/7/2020 at 5:21 PM, AntonToo said:

?? Gender dysphoria is not about how many genders there are.

If you will participate in such silly word playing, then you fundamentally do not understand the SUBSTANCE of what the abortion debate is even about.

It's not a scietific fact that a fetus (or a zygote) is a PERSON, with PERSONAL rights. There are scientific facts about stages of development but it fundamentally can't define personhood and can't balance mother's rights vs those of the fetus.



On 8/7/2020 at 9:29 PM, AntonToo said:

You have it backwards. Thats how you explain it in most simple form, to be digestible by even the lowest of denominators.

The answer is no and AIDS is not airborne last I checked.

That's why I will walk past organizations with this idiot sign on the door. I will keep my money and you can go broke. Fear is the enemy not the virus.

My genetics are fine, but as usual your stupid assertions are at direct odds with easily checked reality. Let me introduce you to it now:

You don't even realize that the word is spelled irrelevant.  You highlight my claim of "stupid assertions" with not one, BUT THREE examples of where you misspell the word.  Not only that, but three misspellings exactly as I had pointed out.  

You can't make this <censored> up.
