Yeah well with everyone being forced to wear facemasks people are breathing their own CO2 which is worse. At least CO2 emissions just go up into the air and we're not BREATHING that.

This is how you get the Covidiots to wear masks. Obama's face-recognition technology won't work with a mask on, so it can't increase your payroll tax by 99 cents to pay for the mandatory abortions that are required under Obamacare.

The trick to lowering the CO2 we are breathing back in with the masks on is to do a little DIY adjustment by carefully cutting a small hole that will fit a short length of plastic tubing into the opening. It's important that the opening be just enough for the tube as you don't want to compromise the integrity of the mask. Use a few pieces of tape to ensure the mask has a good seal when your done. The next step is add a little lubricant to the other end of the tube and gently insert it into your anus, then just breath like normal.
This one trick not only reduces the CO2 rebreathing but you also get to enjoy the smell of your own farts while using the mask. It's win/win.

In Gibson's book, Zero History, the plot contains a shirt patterned in such a way that it fouled up facial recognition.

It was called 'The Ugly Shirt'.

The first cloth sewn cloth mask I got was mad from remnants of kiddie clothes material.  Choo-choo trains etc.  It is a strong contender for being called 'The Ugly Mask'

Or use the PIN to pay.

Or if you have an Apple Watch, there is no PIN or Face ID necessary as long as the watch hasn't been removed from your wrist since you last unlocked it.

Update to the latest iOS and it will give you the ability to pay with your passcode if face recognition doesn't work, such as when using a mask.

Ah my dear friend - you see asking Americans to do anything (whether they want to or not), for any reason is an authoritarian act that infringes on our basic freedoms. If you started telling people they needed to wipe their ass after using the toilet, there would be a vocal minority who would equate it with Hitler/Stalin/Insert Boogeyman.

I have a fingerprint scanner on my lowly Samsung.

I've had one on all my recent Androids, but the upcoming flagships have all ditched them for facial recognition.

I'm going to ride my my G6 as long as I can.


Everyone wants MOAR SCREEN.

Yes, you are. But it will only go over with people that pay for nitrogen in their tires, when air is already 78% nitrogen. So, the 30% that are anti-science and anti-education.
