I never heard of this guy, but I've got to believe he doesn't really believe what he said about evolution. He appears to be just another anti-mask a$$hole trying to be clever.

Welp, I suppose we should also get rid of prescription glasses and stuff too.

Hey look! Another Maskhole!

We did, that's why the nose and sinuses are the way they are. And if stuff gets past that we have a kick-ass immune system. And when that's not enough we have a GIANT FARKING BRAIN to think up other ideas like masks to help us along.

Only people with bad breath don't wear masks in public, they should get a toothbrush, toothpaste, and mask handed to them when seen in public.

Also, on you chin, forehead, under you nose, that's not how it works you covidiots.

wademh: Shoes.


If you look at how people were depicted walking during medieval times, we used to walk differently before hard soled shoes.

Heel first doesn't make sense - toe first is safer without shoes on rough surfaces.

If this guy had been born in Sparta, his father would have left him out on a hillside for the wild animals to eat.

You can't hold hot pans as long with Silicone VS old school thick fabric mitts.
YMMV it has to do with pressure.
Once you learn to hold the object  lightly it's not it's not an issue.
But in order to hold it lightly have to use both hands.
old school oven mitts you could use just one hand and have all the weight in that one hand and not feel the heat.
Can't do that with silicone

Or you don't pull out a heavy pan filled with six layer lasagna with one hand.
Also. I have small hands. So one hand, heavy pan, equals to much pressure.
Like I said. YMMV
I have to us to hands to not feel the heat of the pan.

The article says evolution takes millions of years.

Given a strong selection pressure, 6 generations will do. Wild foxes were domesticated in 6 generations. It's plausible that, in 6 generations or so, humans will be able to deal with Covid, one way or another. It doesn't need a mask, normal immunity would probably get the job done by then even without vaccinations, masks, or the virus mutating.

(There is some dispute about whether all of the initial population of foxes were wild. But there is no dispute that selective breeding did give tame foxes quickly. Some people are asymptomatic when exposed to Covid-19, so the analogy still holds.)

The problem is, nobody wants to participate in evolution. It usually involves people dying and you never know whether it will be you.

It's funny that a clean-shaven gentleman might think evolution has not provided is with thick, air-filtering masks that would help us survive.

bsmz: The problem is, nobody wants to participate in evolution. It usually involves people dying and you never know whether it will be you.


The thing is GOP are fatalistic and callus. So they are too willing to let people die even if the they is them. Their cool with death. They think it's natural. Their dumb like that.
Which is odd. Because if death is natural why do they always need their guns to protect them from being killed?
