Imagine if your name was used commonly as a pejorative. Not you, Jim, just "you" in general. It's really fucked up. She didn't do anything to deserve it. And none of those women are even named Karen.

That sucks. The good news is that I think the same rapidfire culture hose that made it get so widespread so fast will also ensure that it dies out surprisingly quickly as well. I already see it way less than I did a few months ago. In another year or two it will be a completely outdated reference.

That's not a good idea. Scientists all over the world have been working on every aspect of the virus and leaned an awful lot it a year since it first appeared. One discovery is the hand washing and lifespan of the virus on different surface types is far less important than the first thought, although it's still a good idea even without the virus threat.

But probably the most important thing is aerosol transmission, which was dismissed in the beginning, seems to be a major vector. Not the big and little droplets with the 6 ft spacing requirement, but the tiny virus carrying moisture that travels around the room on air currents both natural and HVAC created. They finally verified this is a major problem.

Over the weekend, I went camping and had to take my mask off in the bathroom when I brushed my teeth. I was the only one in the bathroom, but I still felt super vulnerable, because there was no ventilation in there. There could have been a covid dude that used the bathroom an hour before me and left, and then I went in and got infected.

Anyway, I kind of held my breath and breathed shallow breaths when I couldn't hold it any longer, and got out as fast as I could. The following night, I brushed my teeth in the campsite.

And when I used the bathroom for real, I wore a mask.

Statistically, the infection rate is something like half a percent or one percent, so odds are I will be fine from that one slip up, but you can't be sure.

It's little screw ups like that, where you let your guard down for a moment, that it's going to get you. Which would be a real shame after all I've gone through to get to this point.

Is it really something that required "belief."

The only drawback I ever heard from masks that seemed legitimate was that if you use something that is not intended to be a mask as a mask, then you run the risk of breathing in loose fibers given off by that thing.

Actual masks designed to be masks are not a concern.

Pretty sure you're not gonna get "cotton lung" from loose mask fibers unless you're the canary in the Burlington Mill


That said, it seems trollish to go on about how you proudly don't wear a mask because you think they do more harm than good. But what do I know? I'm not a Russian bot.

The Fall spike appears to be underway. I'm working from home for two weeks due to the local spike. My client's sister lives in Paris which is a damn mess and the BBC is talking about the British spike.
