How hard is it to wear a fucking mask?

Okay I know half of the country believes masks are bullshit and the other half hate wearing them but are at least smart enough to. Is it normal for such a large percentage of the population to be so fucking stupid? I mean seriously unless you have major health problems, how fucking hard is it to wear a fucking mask?, you ignorant self righteous assholes

Is It Normal?
Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • And how hard is it to cover both your nose and mouth? I keep seeing people wearing masks that cover their mouth, but not their nose. Cover both your nose and mouth!

    • Some multiple use masks are a bitch to breathe in. I used to work in a coffee factory, hot conditions with breathing in a mask is an fucking labor. So most of us just breathed through our noses.

      • Try breathing when you have COVID-19. Or think about the other person breathing when they get COVID-19. Please cover both your nose and mouth when wearing a mask.

        COVID-19 can spread through the nose, not just the mouth.

        • I breathed just fine when I had covid. The coughing was bad but I just toughed it out.

          It can also spread through your eyes. So everyone is just gonna wear full masks? I pity the easily robbed store owners that have to put up with this shit.

          • Not everyone can tough it out. Some people die from it. The only way you can get it through the eyes is if someone coughs or sneezes in your eyes because, um they weren't wearing a mask properly.

            Please wear a mask properly in public.

            • It's a plague people die. For these people the standard flu is a massive risk too. Dont bend society over at the risk of the majorities lives if the minority can take steps to prevent it.

      • I got zero motivation to wear a mask. I live alone, am a healthy male with a robust immune system. As well as I already got covid. So I'm pretty sure I dont need to wear one in the first place.

  • masks don't do as much as people think, if anything; cloth is permeable so the virus is still transmitable through the air and escaped moisture from your breath that builds up inside the mask. People wearing masks just like to think they help because they like the sense of control over the situation they feel, grasping at any solution that sounds feasible. I still wear a mask because it's illegal not to where I am, and the possibility of the tiniest bit of effectiveness in stopping the spread.

        • Was really fkn annoying bout the whole tp situation when your like me and not stressing and can't get even 1 roll of tp...
          As bad as this sounds.. I just think it's a part of the cycle of killing of some people (i was really hoping for all those idiots with all that tp laying around!!! Lol)
          But yea if you live in an area that these things spread easily.. you'd be stupid NOT to protect yourself and actually do the right thing.. protect yourself and others, and not to bulk but stupid shit lol

        • It's not arrogant it's a high value in self independence. Because here's the shitty thing about independence, you dont give a shit about someone else's health if THEY can use their independence take steps to avoid it.

          If you are immune compromised the standard flu is enough to kill you. Old people that kick the bucket over the flu is completely normal.

          The plague isnt that bad 99.8% of average people will make it through fine. Now if it was like Ebola and would turn you inside out if you got it with a 70% chance of death then I think people would be wearing masks.

  • Look up the science wearing theses masks are actually bad for you. Just like certain diving equipment is bad for you and kills scuba and freedivers alike for trapping in bad air with is exactly what these masks do just not as severely.

    So its beyond dumb to wear them. If your do high risk stay indoors. But your doing yourself no favors by wearing one of these cloth masks. If you must buy a proper mask sych as a gas mask or one with actual filtration not just a cloth "screen" see i have to wear one of these fucking things 15 hours a day 5 days a week for work. Im taking them off first and every chance. If you have a problem with that well i trully don't give a shit.

    • This^

      The only masks that work and provide decent protection are the ones with a HEPA filter you have to swap out. But those are expensive and sold out everywhere. Best to let the elderly buy them, as they are in the highest risk group.

      I am really looking forward to this virus being eradicated, so we can get back to our normal lives.

      PS: I hate how social distancing has turned pretty much everyone into an asshole. Everyone is giving you a death stare, as if you invented the stupid virus and are the only one spreading it around. Everyone is avoiding everyone, as if they were radioactive. And then we have the idiots that bitch you didn't give them enough room...
      Because if we don't have a big enough space for a small aircraft to park between us, we'll get infected.

      Absolute idiocy everywhere!

      • "Absolute idiocy everywhere!"
        Elderly AND younger people are getting sick. There is not one group that gets the worst of it. Yes, elderly people started dying more earlier, but now teens are dying from it.

  • I wish this virus were actually as infectious as the media says it is, so that people who refuse to be sensible are dealt with appropriately by natural selection and karma.

    A little extreme maybe, but if you behave like a dickhead, you deserve whatever mother nature throws at you.

    • Human inventions can only bypass natural selection for relatively minor things. Some people kick the bucket from being in the same room as a peanut. If you are a whale of a human your gonna die in your 40s but it's your choice to do it! To me that's beautiful. The choice to choose bad lifestyles, the freedom to change it.

  • I ticked "Not Normal" but in fact it does seem to be "normal", in the sense of common, for many people to allow themselves to be lulled into a false sense of security about the pandemic and take risks which not only endanger themselves, but also others.

    I use a mask and gloves when I have to go anywhere there are other people and try and observe social distancing, the latter being difficult when others are ignoring it.

    I hate using a mask but I do it anyway: I have COPD, which often makes breathing difficult at the best of times and the mask exacerbates this. I also have heart disease and am 73, so in the highest risk group in terms of survival rate if I get covid 19 - 3 or 4% statistically.

      • I don't know what you mean by "properly"? I put them on whenever I'm going into a shop, the library, putting fuel in the car and when I'm on my way home I take them off & dispose of them. Is that properly?

        • Nope. Look up how to use disposable gloves. You touch a contaminated surface you throw them out and put on a new pair. Any shopping or touching of personal products while wearing those gloves us only causing a buildup and easier spread of the virus thusly contaminating snything and everything you touch with the dirty gloves wich rhen get transfered to you the second you touch said goods without the gloves. That soda the candy bar and even the box of cereal. Everything not to mention you put others at a higher risk by not using them properly. Wearing a mask puts you at a increased risk as well.

          Basically anything and everything you can do wrong you are doing like a fucking retard who cant figure out touching a hot stove will burn you.

          • Oh thank you so much, juvenile personal abuse always makes me change my mind about facts I've researched and decided to act on.

            I use disposable gloves for brief occasions as I described for my own protection: I'm old with both heart and lung disease and according to statistics, have only a very small chance of surviving covid 19. If masks put the wearer and/or others at increased risk I wonder why health workers use them? I guess they haven't had a benefit of your superior knowledge or your personal abuse, right?

            • Q filtration device combined with a seal are the way to block airborne pathogens. Cloth puts you at harm from breathing dead air and people are being hospitalized from it. Does wear them short term. Talk to any hospital worker of whom I know several and they all take them off when not interacting with "guest's" they aren't wearing it for 8+ hours straight. Wich is only harmful.

              You still aren't wearing gloves properly. If you wish to protect yourself from covod use them properly or frankly like i said before your just being an idiot

  • I'm not wearing it specifically because the goverment wants me to wear it. Masks wont stop an airborne virus since it can get into your eyes. I'm not gonna do something the goverment wants me to do. If some grandmas have to die fine, it's a plague tons of people die. 200,000 people dying isnt that big of a deal in a population of 330,000,000 people especially if most of them are old/ are already at risk of the normal flu.

    Covid is just a more contagious flu, slightly worse feeling wise (I got it) but since I'm a somewhat healthy young male I dont have to worry about it. If the goverment really cared for it's people it would just isolate the people most at risk, not the entire population. With a virus this contagious you ain't gonna starve the virus of a host. The greater good here is let the virus run its course, it's just gonna be another seasonal thing. You cant stop and restart an economy every time theres a flare up.

  • I work in a building where thousands of ppl work. Ive seen 10 ppl tops wearing a mask. Only about 4 ppl in the building came down with covid and none had it bad. My company has said if you dont feel comfortable working you dont have to come

    I took covid very serious at first. I went out a bought enough food to last 6 months. I bought ammo and everything. I was ready for the plague. Turns out it isnt as bad as we thought thank god.

    • you're so right about it not being as bad as we thought, oh wait maybe you're not, like 120,000 people have died in about three months for the virus here in the US alone...yah that's not bad dumbass. I bet you haven't shot one single covid virus yet have you? If we could shot then I would say fuck the masks but we shot it, that's the problem

      • What people keep missing is that it isn't just about a small proportion of the mainly elderly (and disproportionately minority) population dying.

        The long term effects of this virus are far from clear at the moment, and they won't become clear for some time, possibly not for years. Think of chicken pox and shingles. Even though young people might get through the acute infection fine, this is definitely not "just the flu", and they may suffer permanently reduced lung function or some other weird aftereffects years or decades down the line.

        It's incredibly stupid and short-sighted to treat a novel disease as casually as some people are.

      • Feel free to wear a mask. No mater how enlightened you act, no matter how much you insinuate you're sooo nice and im just soo evil, no matter how big a pity party you throw I wont wear one unless I feel its necessary. I've looked at the numbers, looked at the cases near me, I try to suspend emotion from my logic. I am not visiting granny, but I'm not wearing a mask.

        I drive a truck for a living. I walk through my work building once a day and 99% of the people there dont have a mask either. If you think its such a big deal YOU wear one. Dont try to control others.

    • Why do you care? I'm not telling you that you can't or shouldn't wear a mask, do whatever. And it isn't an opinion, it's a fact that a piece of cloth isn't going to prevent you from catching an airborne disease. People do get a sense of security possessing something they can physically see and touch, it's like those people who stockpiled ridiculous amounts of toilet paper not too long ago.

  • I just want to add one more comment to this post, we are called the United States, but this simple issue of "To wear or not to wear" is proof that we are not united in any way shape or form. What a bunch of juveniles we must look like to the rest of the planet, with all of our pride and arrogance. We have the highest know number of covid cases and the highest know death count and the highest debt and the highest murder rate and the highest number of obese people and the largest income equality gap on the planet and that's just to name a few. No wonder we are considered the greatest country in the world. Don't get me wrong, I really do believe we are, but with the few things I have mentioned I really don't know how.

  • mask does not stop the virus, the virus is microscopic and is transmitted through cloth, the mask you need is a half face hepha filter mask. and when you wear a mask your body does not rid itself of all the co2 you breath out, so you are not getting all oxygen when you breath in but co2 you breath out also. that is why some people get light headed and pass out. of course there are medical reasons also, like asthma, to name one.

  • It kinda depends, a mouthmask's purpose to 'protect' others from your potentially contagious breath.
    It's somewhat of a last defense safety measure, but if you're talking to a person with a mouthmask on or even standing next to them for over 10secs, you'll have potentially infected eachother anyway so yeah..
    It's very double sided
