after the covid stuff can we just like, keep the masks as a health precaution and fashion accessory? they're neat
@bclindner I'm definitely gonna use one during Flu/Cold season, especially if I'm not feeling 100% and still have to go to work
@bclindner Please, no.
I hate the damned things. There are like exactly zero ways to be a wearer of glasses and a mask and not have one or the other move such that you have a fogged up view and can't see squat.
Obviously, I don't drive with people I am not already around, in the car. Because I'm not wearing a fscking mask while I'm driving, yeesh.
@SuperFloppies Not to argue the main point here, but as a fellow glasses-haver let me recommend investing in some antifog wipes, because I recently did and they do actually work.
The disadvantage is that when fog *does* overcome the antifog, it kinda goes straight to "micro droplet" form condensation, which takes longer to clear than "fog". But combined with a well-fitted mask it mostly keeps them clear from breath fog.
@bclindner I'm keepin' it... I've been thinking about it for a while & the pandemic is just what we need to normalize it in the US like it is in Asia.
@bclindner I want that so much, finally able to walk around with a cool-looking mask without being considered a terrorist
@bclindner Was doing some hobby microbiology work yesterday thinking to myself "This would be way worse if I didn't have a comfortable fitted cotton mask to wear, which were just nonexistent pre-covid"
