1. Just imagine the amazement of "what's in this box" our grandchildren

will find and ask while "cleaning out the house" when the elders can no longer live alone or have departed... I say this only because I've done that "souvenir" of the past thing, and it's so difficult to wrap our heads around that type of lightening striking twice or more in our futures but surely could, might, will when dealing with global evolving pathogens...no less what happens that changes behaviors in the human brain (that supposedly can intuit the best way to survive...SMH...

2. Thank you by the way. I think the site this links to for the masks is a

legit place ...

https://shop.projectn95.org/


so I just bought a box. I had similar from Costco and reused them over and over.

And I just read that cloth masks are the least effective of anything and maybe not at all or very little.

5. Way back in the beginning of this I had an N95 with a respirator on the front and tried to get

into my laser eye doc place and they said I had to take it off and use another mask.

That the respirator on the front of it worked great to protect me but did nothing to protect them, which is the down side to those, I guess.

I dont use them anymore.

I dont think they were designed to prevent the user from spreading the virus but were designed to protect the user from receiving the virus when in medical environments.

6. I am aware now

of respirator types, remember them. I only use the kn95 without a respirator... At 73 I am pissed at that lying, cheating neanderthal who has a gross disregard of a woman's space. He prolonged this agony for millions. If his administration had acted wisely, scientifically I just don't think the anti-vaxxer, antimask group(s) would be spreading so much virus as to keep it a major health problem for our society.

I just tell them get the shots, wear a mask and walk away. I waste no time on the cretins of the RW ilk.
