Might work in korea, but the US has waaaaaay too many mouth breathers.

She's wearing a panty liner over her nose?

Lol. I've only seen those in recent Japanese porn. This article is giving me a boner.

I sneezed whilst wearing a mask the other day. It was very very unpleasant.
It would have been MUCH worse wearing one of these "nose-cone" thingies.

That's a menstrual pad.

Ha ! They must be trying to own the libs   who only cover their mouth with the mask .

I'm not familiar with South Korean etiquette, but maybe they're not pigs that talk while they're eating.

Seriously, no one wants to hear what you have to say enough to look at your mouth full of masticsted slop.

"The Kosk can be worn like a typical face mask, which cover both the nose and the mouth, but has the added feature that it can be folded up so that it sits only over the wearer's nose."

You can't do that with a normal mask?

Those are great if you're also using a ball gag, btw.  According to a friend.

Here's the master level technique:

To be fair, this would be kinda useful if you have to visit the dentist (and can remember to breathe through your nose). Not perfect, but better than nothing.

Because, you stupid jackass.

At least the nose will be covered while eating, which is what this mask is designed for.  Most idjits just extend their dining experience (maskless altogether) to chatting, smoking, and just sitting.  Again, totally maskless.  At lest the Kosk halves that effluvience.

Sounds like a great idea not to be able to taste the food you paid for.

I was more interested in the Saliva Rat article. Who doesn't love a cute, drooling rat?

I don't like masks, but I understand their usefulness.
This, however, is just ridiculous.  It's like they don't realize both your nose and mouth connect to your lungs.

Goes with the American version of just covering your mouth and leaving the nose exposed.

Really wondering how you fit the fork up there.

This kind of thing only works where people are cooperative, mature, and socialized.
So, no point in our discussing it.

Simple, really, for those who have spent time on Arrakis. Like a still suit, breathe in through your mouth and out through your nose.

/and always break your steps on a beach . . .
