Can we set up a poll to see how long it takes to get broken down into months again? I give it three weeks. :rofl:

The Guesses of the Day thread is still there.

How about guesses till the great unmasking. I’m going with April 1. :no_mouth:

April Fool’s

I’d bet on a great re-masking around January 20th. Not that we ever stopped, but it’ll get stricter again. I don’t know what that’ll mean for restaurants.

My money is on 2024. And no I am not being pessimistic. I think that’ll be the end of the “intermediate” stage of this pandemic, when we finally get to the other side—alive!

It’s going to last for a very long time. A lot of people have had their heads done in by all this, and they’ll feel “unsafe” without their masks. A small and shrill minority will therefore insist that everyone around them keep wearing them forever, and the law might well support them.

:rofl:

Thank you for the early laughs in 2022.

C J Hopkins got into an argument with some mad bint from the EFF on Twitter about her right to be protected from death (which, supposedly, would be the immediate outcome for her if his unvaxed body were allowed into a restaurant). There’s a lot of that sort of thing about. It won’t be sufficient for the politicians to just say “you can take your masks off now”. They’ll probably have to issue a mandate compelling people to take them off.

It’s lower today - 0 + 21 = 21 and no deaths.

And given that the “General” thread has not been replaced, any non Taiwan related talk should go into the Humbug thread eh?

What’s that? I replaced the main Open thread in my alcohol-fueled binge last night.

Hah!
