  1. Aerosolization involves a wide range of droplet sizes, including the sizes you are thinking of. Go back to the pictures I provided you. Virus will be on all sizes of droplets, the larger the droplet the more virus. The majority of virus will be blocked and/or not go far. Sure, some of the smallest droplets less than 0.5 micron will pass through the mask but given the mask is at least thousands of times thicker than even the smallest droplets few will have an easy path through. The small amount that manage to pass fairly freely through to project out will be in stark contrast to the majority that were flat out blocked or had their velocity reduced to almost nothing on exit.
  2. I've never seen anyone cough or sneeze pulling their mask off first. I've seen my share of folks at the store who leave their nose exposed and randomly cough/sneeze without pulling it up. But that's a minority here in Ohio. I have also seen people cough with masks on, many also cover their mask with hand/elbow just like I continue to do (habit!)
  3. Of course it travels as an aerosol. Which is perfectly covered by the charts above. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aerosol
  4. FIG. 16. Analysis of different droplet types over cough cycles. https://aip.scitation.org/doi/10.1063/5.0015044 For Figure 16 the blue triangle line is the maskless condition. You (and others) seem to always miss the point that the mask is a barrier that significantly knocks down the amount of droplets being expelled away from the face and the distance most of them travel. This paper here is the most conservative numbers in terms of distance, many of the others show even larger efficacy of masks. Again, this is the reason surgeons wear masks and are taught to operate at arm's length as much as possible.
  5. The evidence is there. Contact tracing will reveal it, I don't know how much has been published but it will. I can trust the authorities on that one. How significant a factor is it? Well, that's a different discussion and less certain. Doesn't mean your WHO researcher's was a solid enough study though. Having a brother who recovered from Covid and a daughter twice directly exposed here in Ohio, here's the rules the Ohio department of health and county departments of health told us: - If you exhibit symptoms you were contagious up to 2 days before they began. - Once your major symptoms (fever, cough) have cleared up you are considered non-contagious after 48 hours. The other county DOH mandates only 24 hours. Even if you are having minor symptoms or still not 100%, you no longer need to quarantine. Masks are going to slow down or stop the projection and dispersion of your breath moisture. And also keep that moisture close to you. Coupled with social distancing that should be beneficial to slow down or stop the spread of a respiratory bacteria or virus. They primarily protect others from you, not the opposite. Same reasons surgeons wear them.
  6. That's "may have been infected" not "has been infected". It's all estimates. The studies I've seen try assess asymptomatics are from the spring and the ones that actually bothered to follow through had around 80% of the asymptomatics become symptomatic within 7-10 days. Which means they most likely wouldn't have escaped testing. The best way to figure it out will be antibody testing and that'll be awhile. They way the WHO has botched this thing (they're just now admitting lockdowns isn't the best way to handle this anymore), I hope you'll forgive me if I disregard their "estimates".
  7. Is there any hard evidence to back up the untested, asymptomatic numbers other than estimates? If not, it's really not proper to throw those in. At this point it's easily overblown. Rudy's correct about that. Just not as correct as the right wingers imagine.
  8. I'm not sure what your first language is but regret to inform you your English knowledge needs some work. Meanwhile, could you explain how Kelly is preventing Josh from being himself? Especially as Allen has sought out Kelly for advice in the past.
  9. Why, yes! Other than the intermittent smell of cordite I'd wager the two groups indistinguishable to even the ardent observer.
  10. Ah, regurgitation of the tree huggers. Can we sue them for false advertising because no one's getting naked therefore it's not "bathing"? Love how they cry about Covid then pat themselves on the back because it only took them till July to figure out it was actually an advantage for them.
  11. Marv was also brought back because Ralph knew him. If there's any problem with "looking back" it was with our owner's reticence to bring in a front office with someone new, as in Marv and Buddy Nix. Later with Russ running the show it was just bridled incompetence. I have no problem with keeping in touch with our most successful alumnus. Sustaining success teaches its own lessons and that is best handed down on a player to player level rather than a coach preaching it. Plus it gives the new guys an appreciation of the franchise and what it means to play for us. Absolutely it's a problem if the alumnus feel too entitled to meddle with the current players but is that what happens? The only concern I have at times is Kelly opinionating on the QB, but he says nothing negative while they're here fighting for the job. But otherwise it seems like there's a good balance of occasional interactions. Bruce Smith spent Myles Garrett's rookie training camp there tutoring him, because he liked Garrett's abilities and felt he could help him. Browns didn't think twice about making that happen but people are saying we shouldn't do that here if Bruce was interested?
  12. Cars you are trying to pass will almost always speed up to race you but won't go above 80.
  13. They definitely do. Caught any steelhead in the rivers? Different fight than cats, but very exhilarating also. Fish them on the bottom mostly, one of the things I love the most is when they're in 1-3 foot of water and you set the hook they immediately roil the water because they're so pissed off at the indignity, then it's on!
  14. I enjoy fishing as the time allows, learned from my dad but about 10 years ago my brothers and I realized he really did not teach us much in terms of understanding how to fish effectively. The best thing you can do for yourself is find a good bait/tackle shop around the area you're going to fish, frequent it and talk to them about what's the hot catch and how to get in on it. I'm learning a lot when I follow all their advice and give it a go. I'll come in thinking to fish a lower river with spoons and they'll say best bet is leaches on a harbor breakwall. They'll answer all my questions as they love talking anything fishing, especially knowing I'm spending my money there. I typically fly fish but broke out the spinning gear on their advice and it's well worth the effort in terms of education and success. Tune in to your area. I'm in Cleveland and the river fishing on the east side of town is a sublime amazing. Steelhead, smallmouth to be sure but musky and Northerns in certain rivers which I had no idea about until I tuned in. Always Lake Erie also, but tuning in to the people who know is a must, especially when conditions are difficult.
  15. Josh should have thrown it earlier. When Diggs made his post move he was wide open before the safety came over on the deep throw.
