    Says no one except brain dead knuckledraggers. In all my years of presenting at national and international engineering and scientific conventions I shutter to see the utter lack of knowledge presented in this country and specifically on this board.

    We really need to have at least one grocery store in every city be no masks allowed, so the anti maskers can enjoy the viral shopping experience.

    Um, you realize that article is about Europe, not the U.S. right? Isn't everything in Europe good? that is the usual refrain from leftists...America bad...Europe good.
    I know you are too lazy to click the link so here you go.

    Denmark boasts one of the lowest COVID-19 death rates in the world. As of August 4, the Danes have suffered 616 COVID-19 deaths, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.

    That’s less than one-third of the number of Danes who die from pneumonia or influenza in a given year.

    Despite this success, Danish leaders recently found themselves on the defensive. The reason is that Danes aren’t wearing face masks, and local authorities for the most part aren’t even recommending them.

    Of course, one of the reasons their death rate is probably so low, is they are in better shape than Americans.

    The other is they probably did not create an incentive for hospitals and state governments to lie about the number of covid deaths and probably don't have their version of the NIH telling hospitals to list covid as the cause of death if the person has covid, even if the cause was anything else, like cancer.

    Is Finland a state in the U.S?

    80-90 percent of people in Finland and Holland say they “never” wear masks when they go out,

    Is Sweden that state right next to New Hampshire?

    In Sweden, where COVID-19 deaths have slowed to a crawl, public health officials say they see “no point” in requiring individuals to wear masks.

    “With numbers diminishing very quickly in Sweden, we see no point in wearing a face mask in Sweden, not even on public transport,” said Anders Tegnell, Sweden’s top infectious disease expert.

    If the politicians and bureaucrats demand that we wear masks, then why don't they supply boxes or bins in which to deposit used masks ready to be discarded? Discarded masks are everywhere--in gutters, parking lots, alleys, drive ways, and so on. Each and every one of them is full of pathogens, and if they are washed into the oceans, they would be a source of pollution and a menace to acquatic life. Where the hell are the environmentalist wackos who get so bent out of shape over plastic bags and straws?

    Speaking of that, when restaurants were open, wasn't it fun to the look a liberal waiter's face when asking for a plastic straw?

    They should ask for their money back.

    Fact is, 99% of the masks people use don’t protect against the coronavirus....the one one that does, needs to be fit and sterilized, and isn’t designed to be worn long term.

    Sweden got it right.

    No doubt you shudder, sometimes, too.

    By the way, thanks for starting all the threads. Most of us like having fun with them. It'd be slow, here, without ignorant little trolls like you to keep us entertained.

    Presenting, my ass....all you could have presented is a mop, broom and a dustpan to clean up after each convention was over!

    You and DumbXX engineers? You both had better stop drinking your own bath water.

    Come on. Quit picking on these two Einsteins. They probably piss in the tub to add flavor to the bath water.

    This is the problem with the masks. The size of the the virus is so small it passes through most masks. If it can pass in one direction it surely can pass through the other. The problem is that there is so much conflicting information out there that the public at large is confused. In reality, most masks only prevent people from coughing on each other. It is people who have intimate contact with someone >5 minutes who have a higher risk of getting this disease. You are not going to get it passing someone by in a market. Initially, it had been proposed this but by the "experts" and has since been retracted. I will say this now. If the dems win the election this virus will miraculously disappear or they will have a vaccine in place. They will then take credit for ridding us of the virus. Never in our history have we quarantined healthy people and never in our history have we censored our doctors treating any disease successfully.

    Complete and utter BULLSHIT claim. You don't think like an engineer nor a scientist. Engineers know how to weigh a problem and solve it. Please, don't insult real scientists. You have shown none of this type of thinking. ZERO, you damn liar.

    We should know soon about masking, between Sturgis and Georgia schools. They will let us know how the great ignore all good advice works out.

    Also, I watched your hero Tucker Carlson a few minutes the other night. Really seemed like it was not about masks anymore, it was all about "shutdowns". Looked like a major pivot, looks like they have abandoned the mask freedom march.

    Sweden has 570 deaths per million, the third highest in the world. I'm not sure Sweden is the best example of what we should be doing.
