It is like that in audio too. You'd think with all that processing power, things would be leaps and bounds ahead of where they were 20-25 years ago. To say nothing of actually being stable!

But it's pretty much just more of the same -- enhancements to base technologies that came out in the 90s or early 2000s.

Denmark. The study was called Danmask-19.

There was also a much larger Bangladeshi study, the stated purpose of which was to find ways to convince people to wear masks. Naturally, the study found that mask wearing reduces the spread of covid. Media all over the western world, while blithely ignoring Danmask, gleefully promoted the Bangladesh study as "proof" that "masks work."

Unfortunately for them, more careful reviews of the findings and methodology of the Bangladesh study showed again that, at best, data was inconclusive, and did not show what the study and media claimed it showed.

My own non-scientific test, when confronted with a mask zealot, is to ask them how many times prior to January 2020 they were ever asked to wear a mask in the doctor's office, and did they ever see the doctor or office staff wearing them. No matter how bad they or other patients may have been hacking and coughing. Was there EVER any mask wearing, prior to January 2020?

But just to back up your own common sense, we did have two studies specific to masks RE Covid -- at least two that I know of -- in Denmark and Bangladesh. Real scientificalistic studies too, with thousands of participants, randomized controlled trials, the works. You know, all that heavy-duty scientificalisticated stuff.

Results from both? "Maybe work, maybe no work, can't tell, no significant difference."

SCIENCE™!!!

For more Fun and Excitement, try to find any study on how wonderful and efficacious masks are, that was conducted prior to January 2020.

Now I know the truth, and it’s a bitter pill to swallow.

Wow. No reply to that -- you have said it all.

Imagine fifty million Chinamen marching down the Bund, each armed with a pair of Navy sixes... a hundred years hence, somebody would make a movie that would be epic hahaha... well, it would be epic, but with no Clint Eastwoods or John Waynes, how epic could it be.

I passed by a couple shopping areas on my way to my office on Friday. From what I could see, it seemed like a typical Saturday afternoon, even though it was a Friday morning. Nothing crazy. Sure was nice being the only one in the office though.

OTC flu and cold med advertising pretty much completely stopped during covid too. I have started seeing it a bit more, but nowhere near pre-covid levels. And even much of that is ads for various "vaccines" produced by Pfizer.

80s thrashy sort of metal hardcore band. On roadrunner back then. I think they are still active but I’ve not followed them in a while. If you like bands like dri or corrosion of conformity you might like ratos. In keeping with the Brazilian theme. Enjoy!

I was viewing the inside of a helicopter once (on the ground) and voiced concern over the amount of mysterious fluids present, that had evidently been sprayed out under some pressure.

The crewman I was speaking with laughed. He told me that the fluids meant that everything was being maintained and in working order. He said there was no need for alarm until you DON'T see any fluids!

We are indeed everywhere! It's like that with me and the internet sales manager at the local Toyota dealer.

At the height of Covid nonsense, I needed to bring my Toyota in for service. Which I did, and I was the only one in the entire place not wearing a mask. While I am waiting, in strolls this glorious dealership employee, no mask at all, head held high.

We saw each other and commenced a conversation, which has turned into a thing every time I bring my car or wife's car in. He must be a regular on this site. Jim, if you are reading this, you are my brother and I have your back. White 4Runner.

It's amazing how many people don't even know what fit-testing IS, let alone make any effort to do it. Even the P100s I sometimes wear when using aerosols would be pretty much useless without proper fit testing.

I used to enjoy seeing the mental short circuit when I would ask a masktard why their glasses were fogging up. Now it's just old and tiresome.

WiseDonkey distinguishes between "pre-symptomatic" and "asymptomatic," which many do not. Let's call asymptomatic "never symptomatic" -- never developing any symptoms.

To answer your question, I have never heard of a single documented case of "never symptomatic" spread, anywhere, ever. And believe you me, I have looked. You'd think there would be at least ONE SINGLE CASE. But no.

Before Feb or March 2020, most doctors would have agreed that the notion of a carrier showing no symptoms themselves, but shedding enough virus to infect others to a symptomatic stage, over a period of several days or weeks, was very rare. One of the WHO doctors accidentally admitted the same damn thing and man they shut her up real quick.

What is interesting is that the among the quarantined US passengers from the cruise ships (Diamond Princess I think), there was a person who tested positive on several occasions but who was showing no symptoms. Here was an ideal environment -- all of the people she was in contact with were also in quarantime, at the same facility, they were all known -- and do you know what? Out of the 400 something people in that facility, not a SINGLE ONE contracted covid from exposure to her.

Nor what is essentially a monopoly on the knowledge of how to use those tools.

10-4! I hope she continues to fade into obscurity. I wish all the other RINOs would do the same.

Or at least spend their days shooting their mouths off on lefty media, instead of working behind the scenes to undermine conservatism, like Paul Ryan.

A black female Mormon from Utah, passed herself off as a Tea Party conservative, who ran on claimed policies of social and fiscal conservatism. Elected as a representative to Congress in... 2014?

Turned out not to be a conservative at all. The best that can be said of her was that she ended up being a true establishment Republican. She fought against Trump on immigration among other things. Trump curse kicked in and she lost to a democrat (in Utah of all places) in 2018. Although that election was very close, as I recall, so she may have been Dominioned.

Last I heard, she was with CNN and the View as one of their token "conservatives."

Definitely fits the bill for your initial comment, hence my mention. It is fitting that you do not even remember her. Hopefully few other people do. Hence my own comment!

I will remain hopeful about Meloni, though, at least until I start to see evidence to the contrary.
