And the stupid can be quantified!

The blue line is the regression based off of 6 weeks of data, while the red dots are actual counts in the following weeks, not included in the regression, so you can see how well Ohio behaved.  Week 9 ended today.  Happy Thanksgiving!  Don't forget to sneeze on Gram-gram tomorrow.

People are not going to wear masks in friends' or families' homes (or their own).  It's just not going to happen.

There is only one way to do this successfully, and that means you have to go all China on everybody.  IE, stay in your house for the next three months or get shot.

/there's no way to do this successfully
//unless you are have a government, like China's, willing to farking shoot some people, and a population, like the Chinese, who are willing to put up with such without starting a riot or revolution

Stupid Vox poll is stupid.
I'm going to wear a mask if there are people around. It doesn't matter if they're in a small or a large group, inside or outside. I'm not "more likely" to try and avoid getting COVID based on some arbitrary condition. People outside my family means wear a mask.
