By this time, you gotta figure that anyone wearing a mask improperly is either doing so on purpose to invite confrontation or is just ignorant. I don't want to get shot over it and I can't fix stupid to I'll keep my mouth shut.
What about those who wear masks improperly - particularly, those who have their noses exposed and only cover their mouths?
This is a different question I also don't want to create a new thread for.
Would you speak up (and correct them) if you see someone like that in a store or, say, the DMV (where I'll need to go soon)?
Something related to the new normal that we could talk about in an upbeat way is... what does "hunker down" mean to you? (I would bet that people who have trouble adjusting to masks, distancing, and isolation would have a harder time putting together a life plan they can live with while they live, to a great extent, without other people, places, and events than people who like to be at home and have something to do there.)
I have been watching/reading global warming stuff lately and it's agreed that we have until 2030 to get our carbon emissions in line or else we'll be facing some catastrophic circumstances.@cjbstar wrote:

Yes, Biden has dementia. It's sad to see and is a genuine concern for leading a nation. Nonetheless, on the specific issue of COVID, I, at least, know that he would care.@LIJake wrote:
I don't want to panic anyone but I just heard Joe Biden predict 200 million American deaths by the end of his speech. Wow, that's almost 2/3 of the population. I know, I know, he doesn't know the difference between thousand and million. Also doesn't know Vermont from New Hampshire or his wife from his sister. He's got my vote.
Also, ABC News recently reported that 94% of COVID-related deaths were from people with pre-existing morbidity conditions. Everyone has their own level of comfort, and we should respect their choices.@SoCalMama wrote:
