      For NotDutra5's sake I am not calling this woman "stupid." Merely uninformed.
      Fast forward 8 days and my wife goes to CVS to get her second shot-different CVS this time-and while she's sitting post jab an RN comes up to her and tells her that double masking is bad and she's breathing in too much CO2. What gives with CVS? While the RN is talking I'm googling it and seeing just the opposite. Kept mum.

I agree with the White House. The governor can ask other states if they have vaccine to spare but they shouldn't receive more than their share from D.C. just because its people are stupid.

          Meanwhile numerous states have millions of doses sitting in storage. Texas has 800K+.

            Those same people who say masks or double-masks will trap carbon dioxide also say that masks don't block viruses. 🙄

              Headline: Panic buying? Not anymore. Suddenly there's a surplus of hand sanitizer

              • and now on the short-supply list.... ketchup packets!

                CHICAGO (Reuters/CBS Newspath/WKRC) - One-time use ketchup pockets are in short supply in food establishments across the United States as restaurants and bars continue to receive more take-out and delivery orders and have given up bottled condiment for indoor dining customers due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal.

                • Long before the pandemic, our family was addicted to 'Wet Ones' pop-up hand wipes. They disappeared a year ago, and I still can't find them in stores.

                    A fascinating look at how Americans reacted to, and were affected by, the pandemic over the last 13-15 months. It covers the political, ethnic, health/economic diversity of our country. It's driven by research done through polling. Pew Research is highly esteemed.

                    One sample:

                    There were already some indications of the partisan divide over the virus in that first sounding. While majorities in both parties anticipated the economic problems hurtling toward the nation, Democrats and Republicans differed sharply over whether the virus was a major threat to the health of the U.S. population. About six-in-ten Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents (59%) said it was, compared with only a third of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents.1 That 26 percentage point gap would grow to around 40 points as spring turned to summer and then fall.
                    Another:


                    Already in April, around a quarter of Black Americans (27%) said they knew someone who had been hospitalized or died due to COVID-19. That figure would rise to 34% by May, 57% by August, 71% by November and 78% by February 2021. By then, around three-quarters of Hispanic Americans (74%) also said they knew someone who had died or been hospitalized, even as White and Asian Americans remained less likely to say so.

                      The same people may also say the mask doesn't protect you from the virus, so I guess they think droplets flow more freely through masks than gas (O2 and CO2). It was over 10 years ago, but a CDC nurse once told my friend that she would get the flu from the flu vaccine if she'd never had the vaccine before. Guess they didn't know what inactivated means. I don't think it has anything to do with CVS or CDC. Some people just see stuff and parrot it without thinking about plausibility. Somehow, they think they sound smart if they say it with conviction.

                              And getting smaller. Eligible for transfer to Darwin Award thread.

                              • Random thought, but would the effect of wearing a mask be similar to living at high altitude?
