And my mask stays on for that and other reasons.

I haven't had a cold or flu for at least the last year and a half. I ain't never going back to catching colds and flus from strangers all the time. If I'm in a public place inside with strangers from now on I mask up.

If that triggers some dumb asshole, all the better. I'm from Jersey, I'll shove it right back in their face.

Then you will never build up an immunity to mild cases so that when a stronger variant does get to you, you will have a severe, possibly deadly, reaction instead of just the sniffles for a few days. Hope you have made out a will.

That's ridiculous.

Nope

See post above

The poster did not say that he's never had a cold in his whole life, now did he?

/ silly wabbit


Ive read that the immune system is like an army.  It needs practice to stay strong.  But if it gets overrun then its adios amigos.  I would think colds are great practice and dont usually kill the host
