(FactCheck)   NO, the Florida Surgeon general did NOT issue an "emergency alert" telling people to stop wearing masks, in fact he said the exact opposite. YES: Russia is clearly trying to kill us all off via Facebook trolling, and we're dumb enough to help   (factcheck.org) divider line

Ah 2020, the year we found out just how irredeemably stupid we are.

To be fair, Florida's Surgeon General probably interned in the medical tent at a Kid Rock Tribute Band Festival

Everyone who claims that wearing a mask causes, is it CO2 poisoning, must have never once watched a tv show about doctors.

I dunno. I always knew people were stupid. I just, I guess I was too optimistic about just how stupid.

It's not misleading or a misrepresentation. The meme is a lie. Even the damn fact checkers can't say the word.

IT'S A LIE.

Joke all you want, but a sheet of acid tabs is a lot more fun than a useless diploma that will just hang on a wall in some stuffy office.

I don't usually post images or memes, but I have to make an exception, just because I saw this episode again recently.

As someone else noted, the phrase "Avoid it like the plague" needs to be avoided from now on because it's pretty clear humans aren't willing to.

To be fair to Russia (hah!) I saw a story where Twitter bounced 170k China accounts pushing covid disinformation. They bounced 10k Russian accounts too. I figure Russia is going all in on the antifa, muh guns and promoting violence.

They both have a role to play.

That's TV. Don't cite fiction as "proof" of things.

The better answer is that they must javed never been to a hospital, medical clinic, or dentist office. Those are real world situations where they wear them regularly.

Just wondering. Does Fox News or any other right wing hate machine ever use such weasel words when claiming the other side is being untruthful? I feel like they were never afraid to use the L-word when talking about Hillary. No, I'm not talking about that other L-word.

Bottom line, if you refuse to wear a mask because of your freedumbs you're at best an idiot and at worst a Chinese/Russian stooge and collaborator.

No its true.  When I exhale with a mask on, the entire contents of my lungs is somehow trapped in the mask.  It doesnt make the mask blow up like a balloon for, uh, reasons...  Then when I inhale I'm getting that same air coming back in, causing co2 poisoning.

Your answer should have been "Sure, maybe if it's a gimp mask...".

C'mon Republicans, real supporter of Predisent Donald J. Trump would never wear a mask. The only people who want you to wear masks are Democrats and RINO's that hate the Predisent and want him to lose the election. Donate today to assure victory, and vow to never wear a mask, or patronize, any business that even suggests wearing a mask.

-Problem solved by sending that as a fundraising email. Notice I didn't say to assure Trump's victory.

Somebody on FB was trying to argue that the masks that medical professionals use are somehow better at letting airflow through, that's why they're not affected by the CO2 poisoning. I'm trying to figure out where they got that information. My response to that was "hold on, as a first-responder, let me take my mask off so you can see the shock on my face at finding out this 'fact'"

Putin's probably paying a bounty for every troll post that goes viral. Or Trump's paying Putin, who pays the troll. That's probably more accurate.

I think I'm going to use this absurd logic for the next person that is worried about CO2.

Don't forget the 4chan nihilists who want to burn down their own country for the lulz.

Stupidity is a human constant, and every other country has their share of self deluded and dangerous morons as well, but most everyone else does a good of job of locking them up in attics where they can whoop and shriek all day long without hurting anyone else.  Here, we let them decide who's going to sit in the Oval Office.

They are thinking of  masks with exhalation valves which are fine in situations where you are only trying to protect yourself from particulates. They have no use in infection control.
