I have a medical condition. There is a burr lodged deeply up my ass. I will not let you inspect my ass, or describe the burr for you, or my ass. In fact, I won't actually confirm that it is a burr that is lodged up my ass even if it is obvious to everyone.

HIPPA rules prevent me from disclosing the nature of the burr or the exact excretory orifice that the burr is lodged in, but let your imagination run wild. However, let it it be known that the burr and orifice combination compel me to ask you to let me see your manager. I am Karen, hear me roar.

Because no one knew enough about the virus to come to any conclusions.

Because only a covidiot would compare something that benefits everyone (abatement of droplet transmission by asymptomatic carriers) with something that does nothing at best and is more likely counterproductive (you can wash your hands, but what are you going to do with those filthy gloves besides trash them and then wash your hands?).

When is the last time you left your house?  I work in a warehouse with prolly 800 people total, no problem.

At what distance from your coworkers?  Do you wear masks?  Gloves?  Employer-provided or personal choice?

As for me, I get out nearly every day for shopping and/or exercise and wear a mask where social distancing might be problematic, mainly stores and crowded sidewalks.


I think i said before, a warehouse.

All that bs is enforced.  Do you even know what a warehouse looks like in this day?

Must be nice to be able to shop every other day.  Would be awesome to be that fortunate.  I'm a Chef and had to get a new job.

shiat, you're right, this is a slippery slope.  Next thing they'll make you wear bubble wrap when out walking and helmets in cars.  This is an outrage!  The liberals are out to control every aspect of our lives.  First masks then what?

The answer is because you don't have soft tissue mucous membranes on your hands, unless you go rubbing your face and sucking your fingers, as long as you sanitize your hands youre good.

Masks keep your spittle in your face hole areas, and it also filters said droplets that do escape if you breath it in.  So if you're a carrier, even asymptomatic it reduces the spread by quite a lot, and if you're not sick but near people who are it can filter the intake by a lot.

Your hands can be easily sanitized, but you can't go around snorting or gargling rubbing alcohol to sanitize your face area constantly.


Once Biden's prez everyone will have to make a pilgrimage to DC so he can sniff the women and girls. Men and boys too if he thinks they're cute.

That is true. People were wearing masks, especially since SARS. But then some "experts" attributed that the increased usage during SARS, MERS, and now the China virus helped to decrease the infection shows that you can the public wearing masks and still have availability for health care workers.

If you thought they were effective but wanted to reserve them for health care then say so, tell people to make their own masks from the beginning because health care workers need them most because of exposure. Don't tell people they don't work and then reverse that, you do nothing but sow mistrust and doubt.

NYS did the pretty much the same thing when a certain manufacturer offered to ramp up production with a million square feet of factory space. Cuomo would rather people die than take help from it. The proof was in the fact that he was still complaining about a lack of medical supplies after getting the letter offer from that company. Either it was an intentional ignoring of the offer or he missed it because he was too busy killing seniors by forcing COVID positive patients into nursing homes. Either way, it was pretty sick.

Jgok: ViolentEastCoastCity: wademh: I have a medical condition. There is a burr lodged deeply up my ass. I will not let you inspect my ass, or describe the burr for you, or my ass. In fact, I won't actually confirm that it is a burr that is lodged up my ass even if it is obvious to everyone.

HIPPA rules prevent me from disclosing the nature of the burr or the exact excretory orifice that the burr is lodged in, but let your imagination run wild. However, let it it be known that the burr and orifice combination compel me to ask you to let me see your manager. I am Karen, hear me roar.

It's HIPAA, even if you're joking.

That's actually the joke.

There was a Karen story a few days ago about a woman who flipped out when she was told to wear a mask at a store. She claimed in her tweets that she had a "medical condition" that prevented her from wearing a mask, and that "HIPPA" meant she didn't have to tell anyone what that condition was.


Wasn't sure, and I like to correct bad info when I see it.  I understand that I'm a party pooper, so I'll see myself out.


/soooooo so many Karen stories lately :(

Mrtraveler01: Part of me really thinks they said that because they were trying go stop people from hoarding the N95 masks leaving very little for the hospitals.


If they really thought masks were effective they would have recommended them to keep hospital cases down.

Mrtraveler01: Benjimin_Dover: docilej: why did the Liberals stop at forcing to make people wear just masks? If you have to wear masks in public then shouldn't the government enforce a glove wearing mandate too? Why one and not the other?

Probably comes from the same part of their brain that believes healthcare is a right but food is not.

What?


For many years, there has been a push to give everybody free healthcare because it is "a right." It's been on the telly and stuff. You might have missed it. No biggie.

desertgeek: Because no one knew enough about the virus to come to any conclusions. Now, we know more and can update the knowledge, such as the CDC saying today that it's less likely than previously believed that one can get the virus through surfaces. That's how science works: you update your information based on solid evidence.


What is the "solid evidence" that you claim?

Because only a covidiot would compare something that benefits everyone (abatement of droplet transmission by asymptomatic carriers) with something that does nothing at best and is more likely counterproductive (you can wash your hands, but what are you going to do with those filthy gloves besides trash them and then wash your hands?).

When is the last time you left your house?  I work in a warehouse with prolly 800 people total, no problem.

At what distance from your coworkers?  Do you wear masks?  Gloves?  Employer-provided or personal choice?

As for me, I get out nearly every day for shopping and/or exercise and wear a mask where social distancing might be problematic, mainly stores and crowded sidewalks.

I think i said before, a warehouse.

All that bs is enforced.  Do you even know what a warehouse looks like in this day?

Must be nice to be able to shop every other day.  Would be awesome to be that fortunate.  I'm a Chef and had to get a new job.

Good on you.

Yes, I'm fortunate to have pretty much the ultimate in job security, but calling protective measures bullshiat doesn't help anyone except maybe the bastards at the top who just received thirteen figures' worth of wealth redistribution.  Are you willing to die for the Dow?


Why you keep looking at other mans money?

I'm a cook.
I started at 6.15.  I moved on.

fark off with the Dow shiat kid.

rcain: kyuzokai: We were wearing masks in Japan before it was cool. Everyone here wears a mask now. I've seen literally 1 person not wearing a mask in public since this started. My students thought I was joking when I said there were Americans protesting wearing masks. They couldn't wrap their heads around any rationale for such behavior.

/and they're right

I'd be wearing a mask too if I had to inhale wet Kaiju farts every time I stepped outside


Wuts ur best stock tips?

I asked my mask if I'm being detained.

She said "B*tch, STFU or I'm going to let these germs go right up your nose. Speaking of your nose, holy sh*t! How did it get so big? Did your mom pick you up by it as a baby? Tape a rose to the end of it and boom, instant plague doctor"

I should get a better mask.

Blame it on the orange man!  The American dream is dead!

Because a private entity is requiring you to wear a mask?

For a bunch of people who are supposed tough and rugged individuals, you guys sure act like a bunch of whiny pussies over this mask thing.


I wear a mask.

Everyone that goes to work wears a mask. What is your point?

There's a calm way to get such a paid agitator to wear a mask.   The common story in every locale is the guy creating a scene at a Dollar store -- too similar not to be a targeted event.

Tell him his breath smells like shiat.  And you will sue him for assault if he doesn't put on a mask.    You have a law firm on speed dial who is waiting for the call.   Tell him his license plate to let him know he's already been recorded and targeted.

(Didn't bother to read the article.) Nobody with any sense thought that this was a constitutional issue. You have the right of free speech, but that does not include the right to shout, "Fire!" in a crowded theater. You have the right to be with other people, but that does not include the right to catch a possibly deadly disease from them and then give it to others.

Liberals aren't forcing people to wear masks.  They're giving business the FREEDOM to choose to only have masked customers.

And gloves don't work for viruses flying in the air from face to face.  And gloves don't work if you're touching your face with them.  Unless you are at risk for harming your hands or are touching other people, frequent hand washing and sanitizer is just as good as gloves.
