Wear a mask!

Watching the rising COVID numbers in the States while people here act like we beat COVID by refusing to wear masks in stores, transit and any indoor public space. Keep walking by downtown barbershops where people getting their haircut aren't wearing a mask. Keep seeing ig stories of locals partying at bars drunkely rolling around each other. You are selfish if you don't wear a mask on public transit and if you go party at bars and are all over people. Don't ruin the reopening of the province by being a selfish fool.

Government paid vacations aren't year round.

Jul 7, 2020 at 11:36pm

Rising number of cases for the rising number of tests being done, yet a steadily declining mortality rate even though the majority isn't wearing masks and still huddling together in cramped places. I know a lot of people want that government check to keep coming in and they know it's only here for the current "pandemic" season, but they already told us it would be gone with the summer weather. Government paid vacations aren't going to last forever. Got to get back to the ole grind and making your own money.

The hundred-year plague

The Spanish Flu is a helpful guide. In 1918, transmission was slowed at first by public health measures. Then everything went back to normal and contagion reaccelerated.
Expect to see that again. We're just opening up to between 80 and 90 percent globally. The virus has already mutated to be 10x more infectious...so far, that we know of.
In Ontario, anti-mask protesters showed up at the TTC. If you think it's just the US, not so much - you even have QAnon here, too, in liberal, woke BC. A copy of The Epoch Times, an affiliated print, was left at my door some weeks ago. And I'm in Langley.
Airlines, public transportation, offices, beaches and bars are packing them in. What could go wrong?

Except C19 is stealthier, slower to show symptoms, and more chronically damaging to many of the survivors. We likely have at least 6 months to go before an effective vaccine. And it takes years to administer to entire countries, because logistics is, like, harrd. Herd immunity requires 95-percent inoculation, but surveys suggest that 20 to 30 percent are unlikely to accept the shot.
Deaths are underreported by almost 30 percent in the developed world, and vastly more elsewhere. So millions will die, and millions more will wish they did.

The locals have gotten bored. Inactive frontal lobes will do that. They can't live without their IPAs and wasabi mayo on their hot dogs. Gotta prioritize, cinnamon dolce latte grande and risk getting covid and kill someone close to me or stay home? Cinnamon dolce latte grande, please! Come winter we'll be in lockdown, again.

Safeway and shopping in general

Jul 8, 2020 at 11:00pm

Since March, I put off groceries as long as I can because I get so pissed off everytime I leave my house. Tonight at Safeway no masks on staff or 90% of shoppers WTF?! We are fucked. Some people won’t do it unless it’s a law and then the rest of them will fight it no matter what. Why can’t people just be smart and not want to get a potentially fatal fucking virus??? It’s the Darwin effect except worse cause they’re going to take us all down with their idiocy. I want to take my ‘bubble’ aka my cat and disappear fuck this shit

All it takes

Is a mask and some space but apparently this is too hard. If we were in Japan or Bangkok I’d buy it but Canada is epically spacious and yet: fail. Keep feeling smug over Americans while we follow the same path, just slower because we are smaller. Not as different as we like to think sadly

Seeing the same at grocery stores, drug stores, everywhere. Easily well over half of customers are not wearing masks. SO STUPID! IDIOTS EVERYWHERE!!! Move to the US if you don't like it. DAMN!

Don't even get me started about QAnon and the conspiracy theorists. I see them on facebook and they absolutely convinced of how clever, superior and "woke" they all are. It would be funny if it weren't so dangerous. We are such sheeple bahh! You can even see some cognitive decline in the more advanced theorists, wRitINg like.....this and!!!! tHIs ....
