There are a lot of possibilities. I don’t really see the sense. If you have no symptoms you aren’t sneezing and hacking particles all over and I don’t really see much use for masks. It is just a matter of probability. Your odds of dying on the road to the event are astronomically higher. So by venturing out my front door I already faced a greater danger than no masks.

Now if your are making my food I may feel differently. Or is McBeth a close talker??

Not that you likely care, but the car wreck comparison is not a great one

Bingo. Seems people can feel fine and be spreading this for a good two weeks before ever showing symptoms.
Then there are those who seem to carry, but for some reason never develop symptoms.

But Dingus is fine. No one can catch it from him, cuz he's … a Dingus.
Unreasonable people can't be bothered by taking reasonable precautions.


I get not wearing a mask in the great outdoors, but put some space between you and others.
Why the need to be so close? It's disc golf, not a massage. I even stay a good 10ft away when I play with my son.

Pick up gimmes.
Pull your disc when you make a putt.
Be mindful to avoid/minimize contact with the basket when removing your disc.
Don't touch anyone else's disc.
Leave at least 6 ft (10 ft would be preferable) between you and everyone else.

All this is easy to do with 4 or less on a card. Nigh on impossible with mob golf.

This ain't rocket surgery...

You can sneeze and cough without being sick. Infact, I bet I have sneezed and coughed more times when not sick than I have while sick. Also, breathing spreads more particles into the air then you may realize.

Plus, masks can help you prevent spreading germs to your hands, which helps you from spreading germs in general.

There was a paywall so I can only presume it is pointing out the false equivalency made by the president comparing COVID to car crashes when deciding whether to shut down the economy. And if that is correct, do you find it ironic that you made a false equivalency comparing the net risks to myself individually and a president making public policy?

Them 3 guys might as well be married at this point. I think Paul is with Brodie more than Hannah.

I used the cooling neck gaiter from Serena Williams & Dwyane Wade from the beginning. If you wear it right, it doesn’t fog.
