One benefit of the recent pandemic overreaction insanity is the increased visibility of the truly insane among us.
If you ever saw the movie THEY LIVE!, a guy finds a pair of sunglasses that, when worn, show him which of the people around him are not actually human, but some alien species walking among us, looking, talking and acting like us – all in an effort to use like cattle for their own purposes. It shows billboards saying the word OBEY with the sunglasses, while without them, it’s a billboard for potato chips or cigarettes. He sees the subconscious brainwashing all around him that everyone else cannot see, but is being manipulated by.
COVID has provided all of us a chance to wear a similar set of sunglasses so we can observe the most intellectually challenged among us.
So the fatality rate for SARS-CoV-2 is .04%, the majority of which is predominately the old and the compromised, leaving less than .02% for everyone else. That leaves 99.98% of the public running around being told to wear masks, eat outside, stay out of movie theaters and indoor everything, because of a .02% chance of dying. This alone…is insane.
The efficacy of masks is hotly debated as nations exist with few mask wearers that have low cases, those with strict mask controls that have high cases, and vice versa – eliminating masks as an effective gauge for success – it is completely all over the board.
Most of the masks, or facial coverings, are not effective on preventing transmission. If you can smell through your mask, then you can breathe in the virus, as scent molecules are larger than the virus. So you are either breathing it in directly through the material, or around the edges, because the only mask that prevents breathing the virus is a respirator that has been properly fitted to your very own personal face. How many people do you see walking around with professionally fitted respirators? Zero. So that’s a fail.
Then the argument is to prevent droplets. Great. When is the last time someone snotted directly on your face? It just doesn’t happen because that is disgusting and socially unacceptable. Fail.
Maybe someone around you sneezes. Great. First, that individual has to actually have COVID and be within the narrow timeline when they are contagious. So how often is someone going to sneeze around you that happens to also be perfectly aligned with that narrow window of opportunity for the virus? Fail.
Most people sneeze into their hands or their inner elbow – and even then, the molecules that they didn’t capture have to cross the space between you, and then you have to breathe in enough to become infected, which 60% of us would not even show symptoms of. And if you are wearing a mask near that person, you are still sucking those virus particles in over the top, under and around and even through the surface of the mask. Fail.
And then, if you managed to not breathe the virus in through your mask anyway, most people are not using disposable surgical masks that need to be discarded every four hours and most people are not religiously washing and sanitizing their masks or facial coverings – so everyone grabs and pulls and touches their mask incorrectly, transferring any viral loaded snot someone else sneezed to their fingers, which eventually goes to your face. Fail.
And wearing a mask for the ten seconds and twenty feet it takes to walk from the hostess station to your table so you can remove the mask, and be surrounded by people not wearing masks and eating, and talking and sneezing and coughing is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever been forced to do. Does anyone really think that every restaurant patron covering their mouth for the twenty seconds from door to table is making any difference at all. How stupid are we? Fail.
Then the argument is that if you are asymptomatic, the mask prevents you from spreading the virus. Well if the virus particles can be breathed in through the mask, then they can be breathed out through the mask. Fail.
And then, the most egregious of all psychological weapons wielded against us in the name of using masks is the infantile, “I wear a mask to protect you and you wear a mask to protect me.” They HAD to come up with this nauseating meme because initially, the use of a mask was to protect yourself. Hey, YOU don’t want to catch COVID, then wear a mask. Which naturally made many people weigh the risks, correctly, and say, “Well, I choose not to protect myself, so if YOU want to wear a mask, go ahead, but I don’t want to and will accept the risk.” And that just INFURIATED the control freaks of the world, so they had to re-brand and re-message mask use to how YOU’RE a selfish, narcissistic, evil bastard that must want to proactively kill people by refusing to protect OTHERS by YOUR not wearing a mask. See how they did that? They took your freedom to choose for yourself based on your own risk assessment, sprinkled it with collectivism, now making you your brothers keeper, whether you want to be or not.
So when will a mask work? Well…it will work when someone around you that also happens to have COVID and also happens to be within the contagious window sneezes without making any effort to contain their sneeze and you happen to be downwind from them and close enough that the virus particles make it to you, and you are lucky enough not to breath in any of the particles under, over, around or through the mask and then you dispose of or properly sanitize the mask without touching it and before you suck the viral particles right through the material into your lungs and you happen to not suck enough of them through to actually get infected. Then the mask will work. Fail.
And so, with all of this information, we can look around at our fellow man and see that, THEY LIVE! I see people in their cars, masks on. I see people alone, jogging, masks on. People cycling, alone, masks on. People on the windy beach, well away from others, masks on.
COVID has given us the THEY LIVE! sunglasses so we can see the truly stupid among us. The absolutely ridiculous morons, or the mortally terrified, that are either too stupid, or too scared, to accurately weigh the ACTUAL risk to themselves against the constant annoyance of wearing a useless mask.
So put on your sunglasses, look around, and you will see the truly moronic all around us. And THAT is way scarier than COVID.
