1. Risk mitigation. Easy concept, hard for dumplings to understand.

12. I just realized I may have tainted an innocent food...

chicken and dumplings.

My apologies the somewhat scrumptious dish.

9. True. They'd be asking what seatbelts have to do with the virus.

Seriously?

3. It gets to be exhausting explaining (and reading explanations of) the obvious. *sigh*

5. To be kind to those who wonder about this, a mask catches some, reduces velocity of the rest.

Not to be too pedantic about something meant in irony, when I breath out, cough or sneeze with a mask on my vapors do not exit my presence as rapidly or as violently. It is as simple as that. With six feet and a mask, there is a significant reduction of moisture droplets circulating between us. Without distance, masks are hugely less effective.

My mask is more effective at protecting you from me than it is at protecting me from you. A mask is a sign of compassion. In these times, not wearing a mask is a sign of shallow selfishness.

6. The trumpkin hears that and, in shrieking panic, runs to rightwank media

...to have some buffoon reassure him that wearing a mask is the sign of a cuck.

10. So true. I kind of figured that was going to happen as well.

In fact, I figured the GOP was going to use that come November.

13. Because that's considered the minimum safe distance from a Republican.

Six miles is much better.......
