(For I Have A Plan To Liberate You From The Tyranny Of Masks)

https://www.thisiswhyimbroke.com/dust-angel-steampunk-leather-mask/

The idea will have been slowly bubbling up in my subconscious for a while now, obviously, but today it finally made its presence known to me: given the number of morons I see running in and out of shops without masks every time I venture out to restock my fridge/freezer/cupboard, people wearing them below their noses (or even around their necks whilst waiting in queues in indoor shopping malls, ffs) … my wearing one in order to save their lives really isn’t going to help, is it?

Moreover, it isn’t going to help me either .. because it doesn’t.

So, I’m beginning to wonder if the better approach wouldn’t be for us all to say “f**k everyone else” and start wearing masks with filters instead.

No, they won’t protect anyone else … they filter the air entering through the valve, not exiting the mask … but, maybe, if we all wear one, it won’t matter — because, if nobody gets infected in the first place, there’ll be nobody passing it on.

Maybe we won’t persuade the free dumb loving morons to wear one and protect themselves any more than we can persuade them to wear one that protects the rest of us, but … maybe … just a thought … f**k ‘em?

Also … as seen from the featured image above … there’s even a chance it might get you (me) some extra action from those who like that kind of thing 😉


Thanks to Jennifer Friebely for the (albeit unintentional) inspiration to formulate the idea in words, so that I could see it myself.
