In Sweden they never got anywhere near group-immunity... Look at the USA, there they are getting somewhere close.... maybe, but it is not "some even will die", they are going towards 0.1% of the population.

Smoking cigarettes and driving don't directly put any other unwilling person in danger if done correctly. Unlike people who think they're invincible spewing shit everywhere (on the street and online).

Compare Sweden to ANY of it's neighbours and explain to me what kind of "success" that is. They're doing far worse.
Besides, look at the density of population there, add their discipline in the equation and imagine what would have happened in cities likes New York, London or any other with people living on top of one another.

The Original Question


Getting back to the original question asked, which is
also the title of this thread:

"Is it too much to ask to wear a mask?"

The shortest true answer is Yes.

arkoma just did a 10,000 unit shot of meth* in his penis and all this idiocy went away.


^^^ just want to keep the post quality up to snuff in this thread.

*METHanol, not what you think........

*edit* *edit* amazes me the heights of ridiculousness (mostly) rational people delude themselves with (It's all a HOAX!). See my opinion on this at beginning of thread.

*edit* Original post of mine this thread:

I have SEVERE authority issues, but also have no probs.

Respect for fellow beings.


*edit* HOAX was typed with my tongue FIRMLY planted in my cheek. Sorry T****p dudes, I believe the CDC and WHO, not the Re******ans

Wrong. the shortest answer is No. Only two letters, not three.

Thanks for pointing out that error, Twospoons.

My oversight as been corrected. The post has now
been edited to specify the shortest TRUE answer.

Not just the shortest answer.

My mistake. :D

Your post was merely an assertion. Mine was an assertion backed up with mathematics.

This thread is truly descending to new lows of ignorance and petty bickering.
"Shortest" answer? Seriously!?

At the last presidential debate everyone at the debate wore masks except for the Trump family. Someone came around and offered masks but the family declined them.

"It's literally a dream come true." Also the part about John Wayne was insightful.

As an aside I drove by an Applebee's restaurant today and the parking lot was jam packed. Not much social distancing inside I'm guessing.

Following Scientific American magazine the journal Nature is taking a stand.
"People packed in by the thousands, many dressed in red, white and blue and carrying signs reading “Four more years” and “Make America Great Again”. They came out during a global pandemic to make a statement, and that’s precisely why they assembled shoulder-to-shoulder without masks in a windowless warehouse, creating an ideal environment for the coronavirus to spread."
"US President Donald Trump’s rally in Henderson, Nevada, on 13 September contravened state health rules, which limit public gatherings to 50 people and require proper social distancing. Trump knew it, and later flaunted the fact that the state authorities failed to stop him. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the president has behaved the same way and refused to follow basic health guidelines at the White House, which is now at the centre of an ongoing outbreak. The president spent 3 days in a hospital after testing positive for COVID-19, and was released on 5 October."
