Maybe that will sink into some of the thick skulls, Dale! Thanks for posting it.

So, why wasn't he trying to spit beer with the mask on?
I have an excuse. CRS.

I don't think the beer would have burst into flames, maybe white lightning . . . ?

Oh yeah, the spray gun is probably a lot more consistent too, more repeatable.

Dale-Having had to work through COVID since the beginning and constantly trying to get 400 people to comply with our COVID program up here in Chernobyl, NJ...I can tell you that I wish I had that video 3 months ago. We require masks and face shields and it has been a struggle to explain aerolization from just breathing...that video shows it perfectly. Thank you.

I was quite impressed with it. I do wish he had shown what his mask was made if... I know not all are the same. But I think ANY mask is better than none.

Since I am not signed up on facebook, I could not see it, but do not understand the people that refuse to wear masks. Even if it's help for them is small, it is a big help to those around them.

John you should see the Shore crowds :roll:.
Paula and I are just doing our own thing away from everyone else. We took the boat out on Thursday and ran along the beach fishing.
The beaches were packed with people.
These are all the ones from north jersey and New York City that descend on us every summer. The Shore needs the income but they don’t take the threat serious.

I'm disappointed that he didn't blow anything up with buckets of gasoline. I think Uncle Rob is going soft!

The Coronavirus rate appears to be much higher in urban areas. Local county, rural, has had 30 individual test positive with Coronavirus. No deaths and only two or three hospitilized. The rest recovered at home.

My observation, most people are not wearing masks. Businesses have a plastic shield between the customer and clerk. People working in the store, stocking shelves and helping customers are not wearing masks.

Wife and I have masks to carry with us when we go to Jefferson City, Mo. for medical appointments. Although, the last couple of medical appointments we didn't need masks, but the medics wore them.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I don't set foot in a store without a mask and eye safety glasses...the science says the eyes are a significant entry point. If people in the store don't wear the masks then I just leave.

I don't like masks but I'm accepting them. We are supposed to go back to school on the 17th, half at school part of the week and half at school the other part, everybody wears a mask, which I am happy to do if it gets us back in the classroom! Mike Rowe recently posted a piece from C.S. Lewis, written in 1948, that is beautifully applicable to the whole covid mess. Reading it brings me comfort, and hope. When you read it, just replace "atomic bomb" or "atomic" with covid:

On Living in an Atomic Age” (1948)

“How are you to live in an atomic age? Why, just as you would have lived in the sixteenth century when the plague visited London almost every year, or as you would have lived in a Viking age when raiders from Scandinavia might land and cut your throat any night; or indeed, as you are already living in an age of cancer, an age of syphilis, an age of paralysis, an age of air raids, an age of railway accidents, an age of motor accidents.
In other words, do not let us begin by exaggerating the novelty of our situation. Believe me, dear sir or madam, you and all whom you love were already sentenced to death before the atomic bomb was invented: and quite a high percentage of us were going to die in unpleasant ways. We had, indeed, one very great advantage over our ancestors—anesthetics; but we have that still. It is perfectly ridiculous to go about whimpering and drawing long faces because the scientists have added one more chance of painful and premature death to a world which already bristled with such chances and in which death itself was not a chance at all, but a certainty.
This is the first point to be made: and the first action to be taken is to pull ourselves together. If we are all going to be destroyed by an atomic bomb, let that bomb when it comes find us doing sensible and human things—praying, working, teaching, reading, listening to music, bathing the children, playing tennis, chatting to our friends over a pint and a game of darts—not huddled together like frightened sheep and thinking about bombs. They may break our bodies, but they need not dominate our minds."
C.S. Lewis
