    Pretending I am acting as though this will kill me gives you something to argue against, but I'm not so I'm not sure who it is you think you're arguing with.

    Some people have been saying that those unfortunate youths who want both jabs but haven't had them yet should take personal responsibility and avoid shops (or wherever) if they want to.

    They can hardly avoid going to get the jab though. And even somewhere like that there are people so thoughtless or incompetent that they can't or won't wear one properly.

    This is just one example, the premise that 18-35 yr olds should just self isolate for the next 6 weeks is as silly as it was when people suggested old people should do it in 2020. Especially now the alternative is such a small ask.

    I didn't think I would have to join these dots quite so slowly for you.

    I think the good old fashioned British 'tut' would be more appropriate.

    Or the silent glare.

    Anyway.

    This thread summarising all the clever stuff that has avoided us having bodies in the streets is somewhat more hopeful.

    Been a busy few days so haven't been keeping up to date on here. Any mention of the mad ex-nurse giving a speech at the anti-vax demo saying that there should be some form of Nuremberg trial for doctors and nurses complicit in the Covid lie and that they should be hung? I can only assume she's had some sort of breakdown.

    I doubt more than 1% of 18-35 year olds are worried about catching C19. All the ones I know are out in pubs and clubs and have mostly been totally unconcerned throughout this whole pandemic.

    I can see an argument for keeping masks for a while to reduce the rate of infection in the population but largely to protect the vulnerable who perhaps can't have the jab or who might get infected despite having had it.

    That said if people don't like wearing a mask I don't really care - I don't like them and I don't want them to become the norm. Now it's voluntary there's an argument that making a choice to wear one is normalising it in the long term.

    Nobody wants them DV. Half the population didn't wake up one day in 2020 and go "Yes! Finally! Masks!". This is a common mischaracterisation of the debate.

    No I don't like them and I don't want their use to be normalised.

    As I say I can see an argument to extend their use until vaccination rates are up - but to protect the genuinely vulnerable from a high rate of infection in the population - not the 18 year olds who typically have not been hiding away obeying social distancing for the last year.

    I will state the obvious here, you’re not seeing the ones who are socially distancing…..as they are distancing.

    Go into a care home and you’ll see plenty of people who have been really careful in order to visit loved ones.

    It is not all pubs and shops.

    Quite frankly I've enjoyed not having a cold in 1-1/2 years, not to mention flu.
    There have been upsides in this pandemic that we should learn from. But won't.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Wear a mask and limit you contact with others to avoid flu which I have not had in my lifetime or if I did I did not particularly notice. To avoid a cold which I would be surprised if I had once every four years and let's face it I have had worse hang overs. I doubt I am unique in this history of flu or cold like illness. Good luck selling that to the majority as you will need to do more than masks to get a result. The only thing I think could be of benefit is people working from home when they have minor illness rather than spreading it round the office.

    Again, you are taking your personal experience and assume that everyone else's experience is the same. You'd 100% know if you'd had the flu so you haven't.
    If you haven't had a cold in 4 years then you are the exception, not the rule.

    I know you don't actually think I'm going to die - but the point you were making with that 'joke' was bang on trend with the rest of the guff you've posted about masks.

    You're still arguing against a point that I don't really think anyone is making. On an individual level any given interaction with a maskless person is very unlikely to be harmful, yes. On a population wide level, remove restrictions and some of these interactions will result in infections... obviously.

    Anyway it's been spelled out for you plenty of times now. At least DV had the honesty to say he just didn't want to wear one, rather than pretending he was doing some rainman-esque risk calculations every time he did anything. If the population as a whole was capable of working out their risk effectively, there would be no pandemic.

    I've just had my second jab, so in a couple of weeks you can all stop wearing masks, thanks.

    (If that seems like an outrageous position to take it's because it is)

    Meanwhile the woman next to me in the post jab holding pen has her nose completely out of her mask.

    You are going to die. There is no other possible explanation. You should have got in a face to face shouting match to make sure of it.
    Explanation? I think you mean outcome.

    Pretending I am acting as though this will kill me gives you something to argue against, but I'm not so I'm not sure who it is you think you're arguing with.

    Some people have been saying that those unfortunate youths who want both jabs but haven't had them yet should take personal responsibility and avoid shops (or wherever) if they want to.

    They can hardly avoid going to get the jab though. And even somewhere like that there are people so thoughtless or incompetent that they can't or won't wear one properly.

    This is just one example, the premise that 18-35 yr olds should just self isolate for the next 6 weeks is as silly as it was when people suggested old people should do it in 2020. Especially now the alternative is such a small ask.

    I didn't think I would have to join these dots quite so slowly for you.

    I doubt more than 1% of 18-35 year olds are worried about catching C19. All the ones I know are out in pubs and clubs and have mostly been totally unconcerned throughout this whole pandemic.

    I can see an argument for keeping masks for a while to reduce the rate of infection in the population but largely to protect the vulnerable who perhaps can't have the jab or who might get infected despite having had it.

    That said if people don't like wearing a mask I don't really care - I don't like them and I don't want them to become the norm. Now it's voluntary there's an argument that making a choice to wear one is normalising it in the long term.

    I think some of these 18-35s might be a little less blasé when they can only manage three sentences before having to stop for breath.

    How common is that?

    There are risks in life. I'm sure we are all non drinkers eating 2000 calories of organic whole foods making sure we take time out for an hour's yoga every day?

    2 out of 14 in our office. Don't think it's unusual. That's what they mean by mild symptoms. That was after one jab as well. Not life threatening but doesn't sound much fun.

    Mask wearing is probably the most cost effective way of limiting infections and keeping R down, by wearing them it allows far greater freedoms.

    To wear one is such a minor imposition and the anger so great that I feel I am missing the true reason for non compliance.

    I don't see any anger.

    Not sure non-compliance is the right phrase now - it's no longer law. Of course the govt advises as it does with lots of things - salt intake, exercise, alcohol.

    The problem with the no mask bellends is normal behaviour would be to call them out, but then speaking to people, especially without a mask, is even worse for rona transmission, so how you gonna call them out?

    So they walk around in ignorance of their p!sspoor behaviour.

    you don't think there is anger about mask wearing?

    Surely most people are kicking back against being told what to do?

    as an amusing aside I know somebody who is refusing to get vaccinated and she is angry because a lot of her friends can not hide the fact that they think she is a moron

    obviously she has her own exemption for mask wearing and never bothered with social distancing

    I think you are confusing your normal behaviour for normal behaviour there.

    Possibly.

    I often call out bad behaviour as I am usually (though certainly not always) not afraid of the confrontation.

    On positive personal news, zwift informed me that I'd done an effort in one of their crit races that means I can put my FTP up to 207w. So only down 30% now on pre-covid. At least I'm in a state where I can actually put a short-ish effort in and not have to spend a day in bed now.

    In all seriousness Kingston, isn't turboing even more taxing on the body than just going out for a ride?

    No, I see more anger from those frustrated that masks are no longer mandatory.

    I'm still wearing one sometimes - at other times not - it's a choice I don't see why I'd be angry at being given choice.
