    I agree, one can't control the virus or any other aspect of nature, but one can control how they respond to it - with distaste and hatred, or compassion, kindness and caring. It's a choice.

    Oh FFS. The best places in the country are places like the Bay Area where we haven’t had a fourth wave because there’s lots of vaccination and anyone that wants to go out in public wears a mask and if they want to eat in a restaurant they have to be vaccinated. Thankfully people like you with your ‘OH MUH FREEDUMB’ don’t have sway here. Move to a ****ing hotspot already and quit complaining. You may end up dead but at least you’ll die happy that you didn’t have to wear a damn mask on your deathbed.

    Sadly, you’re probably right. Too much of the country is led by sociopaths that accept this as a given and are fine with people needlessly dying.

    Anyone who thinks differently than you is a selfish sociopathic killer. Because you know what is best for everyone else.

    You seem really unhappy but don't worry, no one will patronizingly keep telling you they wish you peace because your griping is politically correct.

    My brother was telling me his biology professor taught the class that we need to be exposed to bacteria (which masks interfere with). The prof said that we enter this world in a space located between where the mother poops and where the mother pees so we are bathed in a goodly amount of bacteria to give us a good start in life by priming our immune system.

    All these 3rd hand anecdotes seemingly told through the most biased set of tellers. I mean I admit it's possible they are just hiring dumber and dumber people as professors today but ... maybe we aren't getting the full story.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    There is a hygiene hypothesis but exposing children to normal, everyday germs is not the same as exposing large swaths of the population to a very contagious killer virus. These are two completely different things.

    yea this is the hygiene hypothesis stretched to the breaking point . That's why I'm thinking no real professor ... I'm going with the telephone hypothesis, something is being lost in these 3rd hand accounts.

    But if you make people wear masks all the time, you're limiting their exposure to the normal germs. You will be creating a generation of snowflakes that will melt at the first sundrop of an everyday virus.
