    Maybe it's because the masks don't work!

    But, wait........we've eradicated the seasonal flu! So maybe the masks work!

        I'm 5'11", chest-warmer beard, reasonably fit, and have a resting expression that apparently makes me appear intimidating to people who don't realize I'm actually a big softy (so said my late wife).

        Or maybe people just don't want to see me cover-up my stunning good looks. That must be it.
        Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
        But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
        Than a fool in the eyes of God

            Most English-language dictionaries allow for both although in German the end of the word is pronounced "tall" not "thall." For me it only matters if you're the sort who says "Moscova" instead of "Moscow"

                  I thought the worst part was that Neanderthal brains were, on average, about 5% larger than those of Anatomically Modern Humans.

                      TRU™ comrades know that the Soviet Union was not TRU™ communism. It is bourgeoisie slander to associate TRU™ communism with such failed states. TRU™ communists just rail against bourgeoisie while sponging off the profits of the bourgeoisie.

                        Nyet. TRU™ comrades say Stalin was right winger because no TRU™ communist can be dictator.

                          That's terrifying. But the only way the times got the data was from an anonymous source (read hacker). Also as it even says in the article, the location accuracy isn't good enough to determine social distancing compliance for that study.

                            The first line in an editorial published two days ago in the Fort Worth Business Press succinctly summarizes Greg Abbott's decision:

                            "It's official: Greg Abbot is a moron."

                              Yeah, I've studied the order quite a bit, and it's not what the lefties are claiming. They just want us to go back in our caves and hide some more because of their Neanderthal thinking.
