Every statement in this tweet is false
This is an apt comparison

Even the research shows 10-15% of droplets still get past a cloth mask. But the 85%-90% reduction in transmission does wonders for disease prevention, especially when coupled with distancing
Spreading communicable diseases to own the libs
Did you read the paper rather than just the news article?

There are pretty sizable qualifiers laid out on the front end
South Korea, New Zealand, most places where efforts to combat SARS were rolled out again
The text of your own tweet concedes that it works 😂 just "not as much," maybe
South Korea is an island nation? When did that happen?

And how do you think they stopped community transmission in the beginning before they knew to close borders and use quarantines?

I haven't used "any states in the US" because none have anything like high compliance 😂
Compare the US lockdown response to, say, Italy

We never took it seriously because the President at the time was a f*cking moron surrounded by enablers, and now the pain has lasted too long for any serious lockdown effort to work

Widespread masking + distance is trivially easy
Was that an argument? O_o

My high school went out of its way to impress upon us that sticking your 🍆 in anyone without a condom was a 100% effective way to get one of at least a dozen diseases that would make it fall off 😂
Correct. Preliminary data showed double-masking was on par with a single N95, so people could obtain the same effect even with N95 shortages

And most national / state / local political party meetings, government sessions, etc etc etc all start with it too
➡️ This is delusional, but that's true of Lin Wood's gibberish most days anyway

➡️ MAGAts will believe every word

Politicians are so desperate to stay in office that they would rather have endemic disease periodically racking communities and the businesses that rely on them, rather than make some hard choices like mandatory vaccination
I used to just repeat the tweet, then I discovered I could QT myself and it made everything simpler 😂

Time to mothball the April AMA thread and start a new one

Ask Me Anything...

I'll start the thread with an answer appended to the April AMA by mistake 😂

Overland Park Police were called to check on a suicidal 17-year-old boy, who dispatchers were told "had been cutting himself and was threatening to stab himself"

Cops said "challenge accepted" and blew the kid away

The city paid out $2.3M to the family in a wrongful death suit
I was going to say "this happened 3 years ago so yes we have all the facts," but I noticed it was a new account with 0 followers and 50% of its tweets were whining about how cops are amazing and we're being so mean to them and etc

Some people need a hobby
