    Ever play football?

    If you played you remember too well summer training camp, 90+ degree days with high humidity, a merciless sun and the weather’s cruelty only surpassed by the position coaches screaming at you to “hit harder”, “get your a** off the ground“, “run faster you so & so“ and other endearing comments while you’re sucking for air and sweating out of pores you didn’t know you had.

    And during all the time you were trying to earn a roster spot and learn a playbook you were wearing a helmet on your head, designed to keep your head undamaged while you are ramming said head into monster sized guys who, in turn, were trying to crush your head.

    The helmet was worn for protection, your own protection, and no one ever refused to wear a helmet because it was “too hot” (it was), too sweaty (like a sauna), too ugly, too cumbersome, too etc.

    You wore the helmet because it saved your head.

    Ever box?

    If you boxed the gym gave you an ugly padded headpiece to wear when sparring and, the same type of protective headgear came with early karate training and, wore a hard hot helmet with my extremely short cycle riding days, same with - etc. - etc.

    Wearing protective head gear in some form or another is not a new phenomenon.

    Protective head gear has always been with us, in sports, in the military of course and, in many other occupations.

    The protective head gear I once wore was for elective activities, mainly sports.

    I “suddenly” fast forward a few decades and once again it is my time to wear protective head gear, and this time it is a thin paper mask with elastic ear loops.

    The hard molded plastic football helmet with face bars, the padded boxing headgear and the rubber protective mouthguard and, the padded karate training headpiece have been replaced as my protective equipment by a thin 3 ply pile of paper.

    And yet this thin paper face mask is far more important and far more protective to my overall health than any of the hard football or padded sparring helmets I ever wore.

    This new form of protective head gear is not elective IMO but mandatory for my personal health and well being and, yours as well.

    By the way, a few months ago we all became teammates on a team we didn’t try out for, the team of potential Covid19 victims.

    it's obvious there are way more brain damaged people than there are covid deaths.

    Horrible comparison.

    About 50% or more of people have brain damage in the prison system alone... The deaths for brain injuries are about 3-5% while that is compared to something that is less than 1% deaths by Coronavirus.

    If covid is so serious, then why are the prison systems here treating it with only a single Tylenol... prisoners get transferred, then they get denied phone calls, denied a mask, denied treatment, they even get denied meals.

    If coronavirus is so serious, why aren't they helping the prisons? Does it not make sense to fix the problem if we want to stop the spread of the disease? Because this is how you spread the disease here.

    Appreciate your opinion - and - absolutely in no way minimized anyone who suffered head injuries, a horrific injury.

    My point is - people wore elective head protective gear for years for sports and recreation to avoid such horrific injuries.

    Today one should wear protective gear, face masks,for their health and life.

    I believe it is a world-wide threat and as serious a problem as there currently can be actually happening around the world.

    Your question about the prison system would and should be best answered by the chief administrator of the system or the Governor of the respective state.

    It's not my opinion, I'm speaking facts.

    You did cheapen people with brain injuries by comparing face masks (<1% deaths) to protective head gear to protect from brain injuries (3%+ BI deaths). You're bashing people about whether or not they believe facemasks protect others, when we all know that headgear protects....

    So you want to use that to add more stigma to brain injured people to cheapen the seriousness of the matter, so that you can compare brain protective gear to compliant protective gear.

    People wore the gear and still got injured too... that's about the only likely comparison to Coronavirus I see.

    If facemasks work, how did the cops and EMT get them for free, but then the cops and EMT were the first to get the viruses and THEY SPREAD IT TO COMMUNITIES FIRST EVEN WITH THEIR MASKS!

    It hit military, cops, courtrooms, and jails first.... while these people were given face masks by their departments and some by their communities.

    Even after that, if the facemasks work, why are police arresting people who are alone in public? Why aren't the police wearing a mask when doing it?

    Even in China, why were police beating and arresting citizens for? They say it was to contain the virus, but many of the officers there were not wearing masks either.

    The point is "Why aren't they helping the prison"

    If Coronavirus is so serious as you say, why would I go ask someone else this question? You're the one saying it's serious all over the world... but somehow it's not serious in a prison? Don't YOU think that virus in the prison might spread back to the community?

    Why would I ask those other people when they are the ones allowing the community to be poisoned? You are the one claiming it is so serious and then cheapening the likeness of brain injured people, to compare it to the conformity of government compliance.

    Brain injuries = been around forever.

    Coronavirus = just happened out of no where (oh wow look at all the land being bought by developers)

    Even the death of the black EMT lady by police officers is being linked to someone trying to buy the property she lived on... brain injuries are serious... coronavirus was just governments killing people trying to take their land... It come out in October yet wasn't disclosed until January the next year...

    If it's serious then why didn't all the smart people disclose it instead of trying to hide it (while they went around buying up land no less)

    I cheapened absolutely no one or nothing.

    I am not now nor ever have bashed anybody re their opinions nor would I.

    People have worn and continue to wear elective head gear for protection in recreation.

    IMO people should today wear protective gear for their own health and the health of those around 'em.

    My post above is simply a comparison of wearing protective head gear for elective recreational activities and how today I wear and believe in wearing face masks for health protection.

    If this new strain of coronavirus is so deadly, then how does one rationalize the fact that TOTAL MORTALITY LEVELS are NOT elevated worldwide?

    This fact screams volumes of rationality to epidemiologists, statisticians and doctors of integrity. (y)

    I understand rationality and data are not congruent with the media fear mongering programming, but....how does one have any ground to stand on to support the illusion that there are more casualties than there typically are when DATA shows that humans are dying at the same rate as in recent years? :xf.confused:

    :xf.eek:


    Same goes for masks....

    The data shows that wearing masks is HAZARDOUS to health and ineffective at preventing viral transmission. There is no way around this fact.

    So I should wear a headgear for my health and others health around me?

    (of course that's a stupid question... the point I'm making is you can't compare the two... you're comparing a virus to a physical injury)

    I mean it'd be different if you had a better comparison but you're telling me that a boxer wearing a headgear is protecting everyone in the room somehow...

    And that a person on a football field wearing a helmet, somehow by wearing that helmet they just made the stadium a safer place.

    How does one person wearing a helmet protect the health of others around them? It doesn't. Horrible comparison.

    That likely would be a horrible comparison had I stated that, which I didn't.

    And, I'm not telling you that a boxer wearing headgear is protecting everyone in the room, I surely didn't state that nor believe that.

    No where did I state or imply that a player / boxer etc wearing a helmet makes anyone safer in the stadium or arena.

    A couple of teams or two guys slugging it out while wearing protective gear does not make the peanut vendor or the hot dog seller nor the fan any safer, and by the way, safer from what?

    Protective headgear makes the player - combatant safer than sans headgear, headgear is a protection for the participant wearing the gear.

    The point is many people have worn protective headgear in years past electively for recreation or occupation.

    Today wearing a mask does IMO make everyone, the wearer and those with whom he comes in proximity with, safer from Covid19.

    A football helmet, a sparring helmet, make the player safer than not wearing one.

    A face mask makes the wearer and those around the wearer safer than not wearing one.

    Much safer to not play football.

    Much safer to build a strong immune system to protect oneself from pathogenic invasions.

    I wonder if the offspring of the plague survivors have some protection.

    Have heard that a test is if you can drink a litre of cows milk without getting stomach problems but that might be an old tale. Most likely is but there is talk about natural immunity among some people.

    Literally what you are doing is hiding from germs, which in the long term brings your immune system down, and then you do get really sick.... it's literally safer to expose yourself to germs and build an immune system than to believe the news and media and end up sick because of a weakened immune system caused by self-isolation.

    Well, I think this is like your 3rd or 4th thread where you're posting up huckster nonsense. The sources you use are hucksters as well. Anti-vaccination types, climate change isn't real, debunked scientists.

    I think most doctors would tell you smoking is bad for your health. Then you have those that say it isn't. These doctors are either crazy, getting paid off by some tobacco company or learned you can make money online taking the alternate view, easier to stand out.

    I see a lot of that happening here.

    Some of these anti-masks type have said, mentioned or believed in stuff like:

    Vitamin C cures Coronavirus

    Coronavirus is a government PSYOP

    We didn't land on the moon

    Like to talk about Masons and wizards

    etc.

    Just basically a big bag of nuts.

    There are a big group of nuts here. There is going to be a percentage of the population that is nuts. So it should be expected some will also be into domaining.

    Conspiracy theories are the main conspiracy

    Once upon a time before the age of YouTube there were solid conspiracy theories that were backed by concrete evidences and factual info.

    Nowadays in the age of youtube conspiracy theories became a method of making money, just make any youtube video and claim whatever crazy theory you have and you will get guaranteed views. Scientific thinking is no more, no need for factual info, you can use any type of hunch without supporting it with any evidence whatsoever... and now the internet became flooded with all type of nut conspiracy theories:
    chemtrails
    anti-vaccines
    flat earthers
    5G spreading covid
    .. and now anti-mask group

    All sort of nut groups are out there, and the scary part is that they have large number of followers!

    Stay safe and keep others safe by wearing a mask.. is that too much sacrifice for you?

    lol the real question is who believes the USA didn't bring it to China.... all the evidence points to military and police catching it before anyone else so it's clear who was directly involved, but no one wants to talk about that

    Please wear a face mask. It is not to just protect yourself, it is to protect others.

    There is a massive strain of pure selfishness going on in the world today. Oh, I am healthy so I don't need to wear a face mask...

    That mixed with misinformation, anti-science, and conspiracy nonsense has lead us to where we are now.

    If you have some ridiculous objection to wearing a face mask, because of freedumb, just realize most people are going to view you as a selfish douchebag.

    The foundations of medicine have not changed 180 degrees in six months. The only other medical professional I'm aware of being a NP member - an MD, has liked my posts.


    If you would please take the time to investigate Chinese medicine you will understand why CV19 was treated so effectively in China.

    I encourage you to confirm your own research that indeed total mortality counts are not elevated.

    Are any of you actually trained in medicine?
