according to a lot of the science as well as Fauci, masks don’t work, in fact they seem to make things worse
How do masks make it worse? Giving people a false sense of security? Where's the science that shows masks don't work?

The science says that to help get the virus under control people should be wearing masks and getting vaccinated. You follow neither of these guidelines, probably because you think doing so would turn you into a socialist or something.
I agree. I kind of think many people feel that they aren't in control if they are following the protocols that governments lay out to them. (which, ironically, is what the government is there for!)

It's also possible that they died with Covid.
600,000 Americans die every year of heart disease, about 560,000 die from pneumonia.
Whether those 901 people you referred to would be alive today if we all complied with your wishes is doubtful.
Many people die 'with' Covid because Covid causes Pneumonia! You can't ignore the fact that people die from this disease, or the organ failures directly caused by this disease. In a two week or so span of incidences of when a patient does have Covid, but they die of other causes which has nothing to do with Covid, I would think would be very minimal and it's not a very strong point to use in an argument of the dangers of Covid 19. We're all in this together, and you'd think this war against this terrible disease would bring us all together, not tear us apart. If we all had respect for each other, we'd have no problem with wearing a mask.

I don't think Desantis is forbidding anybody from wearing a mask. If parents are concerned, they can have their children wear a mask.
On the other hand, parents who don't want their children to wear a mask can send their kids to school without one.
Parents are primarily concerned of their own child being infected. Wearing a mask doesn't protect yourself but your height of protection DOES increase when everyone around you wears one. This is even stated in the article. Please consider this in your argument.

Maybe in the future the Olympic committee will look at classifying the athletes not based on sex but based on testosterone levels? That's the way it seems to be going.

I definitely definitely definitely don't understand wanting a FIFTY-year-old woman's underwear.
You'll mature one day! I don't particularly have a fetish for underwear, bur what's wrong with a fifty year old woman?

What locksmith in his right mind would make a copy of a key just from a photo?????
I don't think any old locksmith would be able to cut a key without an original. I think the actual key manufacturer keeps records of the cut of each particular key through its individual serial number and you can just request for a newly cut key by using that number. I think the problem is is how easily this guy did that without any authorisation.

Amazing. People need to be told what to do instead of thinking for themselves and using common sense (if they even possess it).
Yeah, but do you really think 'common sense' would take over livelihood and restaurant owners would willingly close their own establishments to help slow down this virus?

Kids doing something stupid but why does it have to make national headlines? Saw this on the news yesterday as well. Like.......really? Slow news day, hey? Other than Corona, what else do we have?

There are a lot of other neighbourhood noises that would annoy me more than children at a day-care centre. Children are children! Noisy children are a sign that the next generation are coming through and maybe this is something that Japan and its economy could appreciate a little more.

He then approached a 10-ton truck driven by a 22-year-old company employee and began tailgating it.
After Aida passed the truck, he stopped his motorbike suddenly, forcing the truck driver to slam on his brakes.
My understanding of this incident (from what I saw on the news) is that the truck driver was in the right hand lane and decided to change to the left, and half way in doing this realized the bike was there, so he went back into the right hand lane. This is what upset the bike rider. Now the context of the incident in this article doesn't even show that. It's trying to show that the truck driver drove with no faults of his own.
I'm not defending the bike rider's actions though! Dangerous, not only for him, but for all other road users. What an idiot!

Can't believe it is that high! Seriously, in the Kansai region, I would think it would be only 1-2% that would stop for you. Another thing that is dangerous here is the constant parking of vehicles right next to (or even ON) the pedestrian crossing. Imagine a young elementary school kid trying to cross the road, in between the parked vehicles, with the speeds some cars do in built up areas. They are small enough to be hidden by an average sized car. So scary! I just don't understand why the police don't enforce the law more.

Zero carbon emissions means zero carbon emissions from the burning of fossil fuels. I don't think they are talking about the damage done by the pollution of products, such as plastics. The only way we can really slow down this ecological disaster we are making is to stop one thing - CONSUMERISM! But as all governments know, economies rely on consumerism and not many people seem to want to drastically change their lifestyle for a better future for our planet.

To me, he is similar to what Jordan Klepper (https://youtu.be/4b-dannQQ0Q) is doing - taking advantage of bigots' stupidity in any way possible. The main difference between the two is that Borat is a little too crude for my liking. If you find it offensive, just don't watch it.

(As seen on the news this morning) Is it necessary for the university to apologize on national television for these five? I assume all are 20 years of age or over, so shouldn't they be apologizing if any had to be done? Or maybe they should be apologizing to the university for tarnishing its reputation?
