Masks that Work, and Those that Don't

 It turns out that a common form of covering your face, the Gaiters, may be completely worthless. And, I'm guessing, so might the scarves worn by many women.

The AntiFa "peaceful protesters" seem to be fond of the Gaiter style (I'm SURE it has nothing to do with its effectiveness in concealing identifiable facial features).

If you are returning to work, interacting indoors, or your child is returning to school, consider watching the above video. It had one tip I'd not heard of - light a candle, hold it a few inches away, and try to blow it out.

If you can't, the mask is effective. If it goes out, choose another mask.

None of them are effective. What a crock of shit.

They may well have little or no actual effectiveness. However, if people are going to wear them, it would be useful to know which will stop the spray of coughing or sneezing.

Yeah, it's mostly Virtue Signaling. However, I choose to pick my battles, at this time. I can fight that later, AFTER the election.

If you can blow out a candle through your face covering, it'll let you breathe (somewhat) while still performing its vital function as plague security theater.
