    was in costco today and was one of the 10% not wearing a mask and gloves, we see each other now
    and a guy was pointing at my head and saying something i couldn't understand through his mask
    so i stopped and did my best to pay attention to what he was saying fully thinking he was about to shame me for having my face out
    turns out he was telling me my headphones were slipping off my shoulder and i thanked him and smiled, he may have smiled back i have no idea since he has a mask on
    but on Sat i was at my gf's celebrating her 14 year olds bday w a total of 7 people and...a knock at the door
    downstairs neighbor wanted to know how many people were there and if everything was alright
    good thing i didn't answer that door

    Do you guys remember the second " Invasion of the Body Snatchers"?
    The last scene, when Donald Sutherland dimes out the human girl hiding around the grounds where he works?
    That's what's coming soon for those who aren't wearing face masks....the alien scream giving up the non- wearers.
    Don't fall asleep !!!

    I've always thought in terms of similar scenes from films or lines from books I've read that apply to what I/ we may be going through at any particular time...these days, as long time personal friends struggle daily to maintain breathing, and death is all around me here in this area ( it literally is), I' m thinking of a line from Dr. Zhivago, when Lara tells Zhivago, " oh, what a terrible time to be alive".
    Tomorrow, may the Great Spirit grant it not be so.
    It also strikes me that no matter how far we've come technologically and scientifically, we are reduced to the consciousness of the hunter- gatherers of early humans. Spending each day wary and fearful of a top predator and dangers all around. Everywhere. From every shadow and nook.
    The survival mode utmost... of simply getting to the next day.
    One main difference is, this predator is invisible and can't be killed by the hunt.
    Only avoided.
    At best.

    We have to start wearing face masks in order to be allowed into my work building. I wear glasses and wearing a mask causes my glasses to fog up when breathing, immediately. Looks like the last working person in my household can no longer work because I wear glasses. Sweet.

    My vision is horrible without glasses, working without them is not an option.

    Finding/affording masks is tougher than getting an ID.

    What a hassle. Sorry you have to deal with that.

    Not sure if any of these hacks work, but you may want to give them a try... https://lifehacker.com/how-to-wear-a-face-mask-without-fogging-up-your-glasses-1842750271

    not really
    remember when farcetti announced that ALL people would be required to wear masks and set a date last Friday?
    during that speech he said the masks are available on every street corner and i hadn't seen them to that point
    sure enough that Friday i saw people w backpacks everywhere in the valley selling them for $5
    where did these people suddenly get all these masks to sell?
    i bet the mayor knows
    at any rate if anyone really wanted them i have extra from contracting and the school
    i refuse to wear one and the only place that i have found so far requiring me to do it is costco

    I saw $14 dollars for the masks, $12 shipping on Amazon so that's where I was coming from.
    Definitely not gonna hit da streets for $5 masks, either.

    Tucker just had a guy on who said we actually give multi million dollar grants to the labs in wuhan...
    is it possible we actually paid for them to whip the thing up?

    seriously, just put the glasses on top of the mask and assure you really pinch the bridge of your nose to keep your breath from getting between your lenses and your face.

    literally an eyeglass wearing healthcare workers daily deal bro and seriously shouldn’t keep you from earning a paycheck Nancy.
