Exactly.

If, for example, the probability of transmitting the disease while social distancing is 1 in 10, and the probability of transmitting it while wearing a mask is 1 in 10, if we do both, we...

This is not an all or nothing situation. How in the world can anyone take a "whatever happens happens because it's out of my control" attitude when there are so many things that are 100% in your...

I can somewhat understand the attitude of being "well, if I die, I die." I've never been a daredevil, but in general, I don't like to let fear of illness or death make decisions for me and some in...

I feel like I've missed out on the quarantine boredom everyone has been talking about because distance learning has taken up so much of my time, so I'm kind of looking forward to it, but I do think...

I don't think Zoom burnout applies to watching those shows because I'm not on display. From what I've read, "Zoom burnout" comes mostly from having to interpret others' communication based solely on...

The problem is that ignorant selfish idiots are the ones choosing to ignore the precautions and they are taking it out on the people who have no choice about going out (lower income employees).

We used Home Chef and liked it a lot too.

I couldn't get over the $10-13/serving when I can make food we like well enough for $1-4 a serving.

So we decided to eat "boring" most of the time...

I was at the "even my comfy clothes are starting to feel a little restrictive" stage before quarantine, so I took up Couch to 5K since I was saving commute time. The time normally spent driving back...

It doesn't bother me in a personal risk way. It bothers me in a "I'm developing less and less respect for and faith in my fellow Americans" way.

The appalling lack of empathy, logical thinking,...

I loved that show!



In addition to the interest of a relationship drama, I think part of the point is that who the "bad guys" are completely depends on your point of view. Elizabeth really...

This is not about you, Linda, because you said you'll wear one because you've been asked to.

But the first half is exactly the kind of thing I'm taking about. The mask is not about the wearer. It...

No because it has never been about me and my danger.

Oregon's "numbers" look good but we responded earlier than other states did.

People seem to think "opening up" means we go back to free...

If I understand correctly, MaSped is not saying everyone who crowds or doesn't wear a mask is a narcissist.

She's saying that the narcissists among us are going to be on full display, and she...

GUIDELINES, not mandates.

If you read the actual CDC guidelines, it is littered with "where feasible," "if possible," "encouraged," etc. and isn't even called "Guidelines." It's called...
