Guys if he coughs into the mask he will infect himself!!

[–]Los Angeles Dodgerscrisis_in_the_makin 1472 points1473 points  (75 children)

I read on the 5G Facebook page how people have been infecting themselves like that, even though they were never even positive! The mask produced it!

[–]Boston Red Soxtr0ub4d0r 621 points622 points  (30 children)

This is why I shouldn’t have gotten my mask from the Gates-Soros-Antifa Company. They were having a sale!!

    There's an actual conspiracy theory that says they injected people with deactivated Corona virus in the last flu shot and that wearing a mask builds up co2 that activates the virus which is how it really "spread".

    I know that you know this is insane bullshit, but it’s probably better if you just never type it yourself. Some people are really stupid and they still have internet.

    [–]Cleveland Indiansgruey 7 points8 points  (3 children)

    You mean like the guy who told me to Google "plandemic" to see the "truth" about covid, and every top result for it was debunking it point by point and examining how people could actually believe the ludicrous bs.

    [–]New York Yankeestgaccione 191 points192 points  (12 children)

    The mask blocks the coronavirus particles and causes them to build up inside the mask, making you sick.

    Unfortunately the mask isn't woven thick enough to stop coronavirus particles, however, so it doesn't protect you from it.

    It is also woven too thick so it doesn't let oxygen in and you can't breathe.

    Really the masks are an amazing piece of technology that defies all natural laws.

    [–]Seattle MarinersBirdSoHard 83 points84 points  (10 children)

    The mask blocks the coronavirus particles and causes them to build up inside the mask, making you sick.

    The most absurd thing about that belief is that even though you're already breathing viral particles into your mask you're somehow not yet infected

    Masks are like antennas for 5G towers to infect brave and free people with COVID, a virus that doesn’t exist and is a hoax but is also the China virus which came from a Chinese lab.

    I was at the laundromat, just minding my own business, when 5G just ran up on me and beat the shit out of me and stole all my pants... now I'm wearing a plastic trash bag for pants... thanks a lot 5G! This is all Obama's fault... for some reason... yeah...

    I went to get food at a little sandwich shop and the dude behind the counter who was clearly in charge of the other people there was pulling his mask down to talk every time he had to say something. I had a frozen dinner that day.

    [–]Baltimore OriolesNabreLabre 22 points23 points  (3 children)

    Ugh, I get people doing that in my store too, we can hear you just fine

    [–]redbeardbaron 20 points21 points  (2 children)

    I see this happening constantly and I just don’t understand it. The whole point is to block stuff coming out of your nose and mouth while you’re near other people or interacting with them. It isn’t like you have a ball gag in, I can hear you just fine through a thin piece of fabric.

    I’m in banking and deal with loans. Had a guy pull his mask down to sneeze in his hand the other day at my desk. I made him wait in our lobby while I finished up the application with his daughter. Fucking idiots everywhere. I know sneezes aren’t exactly a symptom, but Jesus goddamn christ.

    [–]puggylol 43 points44 points  (1 child)

    [–]New York Yankeestgaccione 66 points67 points  (23 children)

    Their anti mask supporters are a small fraction of the population, whereas ours is close to half the fucking country including the dude whose job it is to deal with it. Add in people who are just simply selfish/don't care and you see why the US is completely unable to contain it.

    [–]San Francisco Giantsmvsr990 34 points35 points  (4 children)

    The numbers aren’t that bad on masks - a supermajority think they’re a good idea. 15% are forgetful and lazy and need to be pushed into wearing them, ala seatbelt laws. (Then 35% need to be pushed because they’re morons or assholes, ala seatbelt laws.)

    Even reopening early wasn’t actually popular. It was astroturfed by billionaires and the media (owned by... billionaires) happily amplified their message. Muddying the waters until people start to think “maybe these other people have a point” is a very effective strategy when you live in a capitalist dystopia where a relative handful of rich people can guide the conversation.

    [–]Qwertyforu 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    0% chance it's half. A loud small fraction is still not the majority.

    Problem is that even 10% of the population is a ton of people

    I really am astounding how few people normally do that. Like wtf are you doing coughing into your hands or whatever???

    [–]Atlanta BravesIndianaGnomes 117 points118 points  (17 children)

    I remember even in school as a kid, they tried to teach you to use your elbow instead of your hands.

    But, I will admit I don't think I started instinctively coughing into my elbow until I had worked in food for a while. Wearing gloves kinda reminds you.

    [–]motorman91 56 points57 points  (11 children)

    I was a mechanic, been coughing into my elbow/shoulder for years. Greasy/oily hands/gloves teach you real fast not to touch your face, especially if you've got any kind of facial hair.

    Nothing like walking around all day with a poop streak looking thing in your beard because you covered/rubbed your face with your hand after working on a CV axle joint.

      As he’s holding his mask with both hands. Again, it’s an adjustment and he looks like he wasn’t quite sure what to do. This shit is gonna take time to adapt to but in typical American fashion we will just mock each other instead of educating.

      [–]Toronto Blue Jayschestertoronto 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      Sadly I've done the opposite. I've sneezed twice into my mask. And yes I know it's a horrible habit and I'm trying to stop doing it. But I was walking to my car and I spit into my mask not realizing how I was wearing it.

      [–]Cleveland IndiansCBNDSGN 29 points30 points  (3 children)

      So pre-Covid you didn't cover your mouth when coughing? C'mon man

      [–]Chicago CubsStommped 20 points21 points  (1 child)

      I think that’s part of what happened here. He’s about to cough and instinctively he feels like he should do something. He’s used to moving his jersey to cough into or elbow or whatever. To feel a cough coming and just do nothing and cough into the mask felt unnatural and this was the end result.

        Lmao did you edit your comment just so the asterisk would show up? Love it.

        [–]HoustonAsterisks 13 points14 points  (0 children)

        No I had summons instead of summon, but now that you mention it

        It's horrible after I've downed a bottle of Pepsi. Feels like I'm snorting acid for a brief moment.

        I had an awful inside the mask post slim Jim burp the other day. 0/10. Would not recommend.

        [–]PhillyPhan95 16 points17 points  (9 children)

        I found myself having to do next level zen work to stop a sneeze in public once.

        I didn’t want all that snot/stuff on the inside of my mask while I had to keep wearing it and knew I would be scolded if I sneezed in person.

        [–]Arizona Diamondbacksskoormit 5 points6 points  (5 children)

        Pinch your earlobe between your index and middle fingers, AS HARD AS YOU CAN.
        You won't sneeze.

        This joke is so stupid and I fuckin love it. Laugh every time.

        You can’t just laugh at a stupid joke, the punishment is joe kelly loses another 5 games

        [–]Calimancan 15 points16 points  (0 children)

        Joe Kelly loses 5 games? That’s gonna cost Joe Kelly another 5 games.

        And this kids, is an example of what not to do

        [–]San Francisco Giantsmqduck 9 points10 points  (0 children)

        While I'm sure that the reality is that the man just had a brain fart while cameras were pointed at his face, I choose to interpret this as sign of the intellectual feebleness of all Dodgers.

        [–]hundreds_of_sparrows 14 points15 points  (4 children)

        I mean I doubt he did this on purpose. I often catch myself lowering my mask for things when I shouldn’t.

        But yeah if he did this on purpose he’s an idiot.

        [–]Los Angeles DodgersSchleprok 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Lol as I saw it happen I thought to myself “well that was dumb.”

        Hopefully he just choked on his own saliva and didn’t feel a tickle

        c'mon bob...

        [–]Los Angeles Dodgersout_of_time 26 points27 points  (4 children)

        The cameras have cut to the Dodgers' dugout at least 5 times to show Dave Roberts take down his mask to talk to one of his other coaches. Every time I'm astonished...what the fuck is the point?

        [–]jcs1211 9 points10 points  (0 children)

        If he coughs and no one is around did he really cough

        [–]JesseIsAGirlsName 178 points179 points  (34 children)

        People are being way too harsh. We develop a lifetime of turning away when we cough, and pulling something like a microphone down as well. His natural instincts just momentarily got the better of him and he grabbed both the mic and his mask at the same time.

        People are still not used to wearing masks for hours at a time, especially wearing a headset. I guarantee a large portion of people ragging on him would have made the same mistake if they were in the same situation. Give the guy a break.

        [–]New York Metsmrmetstopheles 64 points65 points  (2 children)

        Bingo. He was trying to do the right thing by moving the mic away from his face to cough, and he was likely at least a little nervous while being interviewed.

        Wearing a mask everyday is unnatural for anyone who's not a surgeon. Most of us are out here just trying our best to follow the guidelines and be considerate of others.

        [–]Complete_Chance1 14 points15 points  (0 children)

        He was trying to do the right thing by moving the mic away from his face to cough

        Exactly. That's how you broadcast the virus out to the entire nation.

        [–]Los Angeles DodgersPSteak 44 points45 points  (3 children)

        That's the point, though. This season was doomed from the start. You can't bunch up a baseball team/staff and expect them to handle themselves perfectly and lose their habits unless there was going to be serious oversight in place, such as an official there to enforce the rules. You are correct we shouldn't be mad at Bob Geren personally. We should be mad at MLB.

        [–]raonbow 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Agreed, this video clip is short and extremely easy to get enraged at without thinking, and it's not worth it. Save your pitchforks for people who not only aren't wearing a mask, but cough in people's faces. This is the internet hate machine picking out a new sacrifice and I hate the mass pile-on

          Have you coughed or sneezed in your mask? It feels like as if you sharted but still wear the same underwear. Let the dude cough, no one around.

          [–]WaffletheWookie 3 points4 points  (2 children)

          So? If he just coughs at the ground who cares?

          [–]Los Angeles DodgersGroundbreaking-Rip85 55 points56 points  (20 children)

          He deserves to get shit but this doesn't make him an "idiot"...just one of those mindless things we all could do without thinking about

          [–]San Diego PadresRashpootin 73 points74 points  (7 children)

          Who coughs into open space like that though? Cough into your elbow or shoulder.

          [–]Cincinnati RedsSergeiBobgodsky 7 points8 points  (1 child)

          He didn’t want to cough into the mic, that was probably the only thing going through his mind

          [–]Milwaukee Brewersphiggie 23 points24 points  (6 children)

          Makes you wonder what he thinks the mask is for...

          [–]Minnesota TwinsInspiration_Bear 25 points26 points  (1 child)

          I’m sure it’s just a reflex that he’s obviously not thinking through, like when you lock your keys in your car.
