# "Why is 'Spanish Flu' or 'Ebola' okay, but 'China Virus' is not?" In short, the Spanish Flu was named in 1918. Ebola was named in 1976. In more recent times, it was noted that the use of names such as "swine flu" and "Middle East Respiratory Syndrome" had unintended negative impacts by stigmatizing certain communities or economic sectors. It seems trivial to some, but disease names really do matter to the people who are directly affected. We've seen certain disease names provoke a backlash against members of particular religious or ethnic communities, create unjustified barriers to travel, commerce and trade, and trigger needless slaughtering of food animals. **In 2015, the World Health Organization changed their practice of naming disease** after locations/animals because of these issues, and state that a disease name should consist of generic descriptive terms, based on the symptoms that the disease causes (e.g. respiratory disease, neurologic syndrome, watery diarrhea) and more specific descriptive terms when robust information is available on how the disease manifests, who it affects, its severity or seasonality (e.g. progressive, juvenile, severe, winter). If the pathogen that causes the disease is known, it should be part of the disease name (e.g. coronavirus, influenza virus, salmonella).

There’s one near me that says you can’t play Pokémon go on the premises.


TinyOddEarthling

There's a pokestop in the parking lot of a gun shop off the highway. It's one of the only one with in a few miles from my area. (way out in the country) They have a big sign saying Parking lot is only for customers. Then other signs inferring they have guns and will use them to their discretion.


PatcherDis

Nothing like a threatening person playing a game on their cell phone. Must use my rights of gun ownership to commit a crime by shooting at them because I felt threatened by their presence and my failing business. Probably would have more customers if this person wasn’t just taking up spots to use this poke man stop! /s


Cuchullion

And it's dumb, since the marketing opportunity is right there. "Stop by our parking lot for PokemonGo, and if you're after bigger game stop in to see our collection of hunting rifles."

Someone should tell them that they can email Niantic and have them disable all spawns and remove all stops on any property they can prove they legally own.


WarpmanAstro

That would involve them using a computer and filling out paperwork, which (based on my interactions with the public as a civil servant) is far more stressful and complicated for older men than just yelling at some kids.

It the hight of masking last year I made a stop at a local gun shop that had a mask usage requirement. They did however require you to remove your mask and face their security camera. After you "smiled for the camera" you were required to mask back up before they let you continue shopping. Edit: Jesus fucking christ reddit.... I never thought my anecdote about my experience would have gotten this much traction on a post that already had 500+ comments. Looking back on it and the majority of the replies I suppose its just vague enough that you've all been able to interpret it however you like. Thanks to the OGs who let me know I'm a fucking idiot for a typo! Yall what I expect from the internet. Mask up and get vaccinated.


COSLEEP

Airports do this too


woodmanfarms

How about a packed air plane and then the come thru with pretzels and drinks and everyone removes their mask at the same time. It’s kind of amazing


CheckOutMyVan

I had just boarded my return flight last week on my birthday of all days. I had been keeping an eye on a guy at the gate that hadn't been wearing a mask the entire time. Just before they were going to close the plane doors they confronted the guy 3 times over about 10 minutes. The third time he refused again and they motioned for two federal officers to come escort him off the plane, all the while he's shouting to everyone to take their masks off. Banned from Sun Country for life.

dschull

Just flew Alaska airlines last week. While waiting to board the gate attendant stated over the intercom “masks are required at all times while on the flight and at the gate. If you refuse to wear a mask at the gate we will assume you will refuse to wear a mask on the flight and you will not be allowed to board” - I like that approach.


blablahblah

Alaska Airlines does not put up with anti-maskers and their bullshit. https://www.ktoo.org/2021/09/09/alaska-airlines-flight-diverted-to-juneau-after-passenger-makes-threats-and-group-violates-mask-protocol-officials-say/ https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/alaska-lawmaker-banned-airline-says-she-can-t-reach-capital-n1278947


cadium

Just flew this past week, from what I've seen most people around me just lowered their masks to eat, then put them back up. Flight attendants were good at asking people to re-mask. I was surprised. This was to and from Florida as well.


Which-Decision

On my planes everyone just kept them on mostly


Mr_Midnight49

People do get confused about this, its not about 100% removal of covid. Its about mitigation. Is it better to wear a mask for x amount of time compared to not wearing one at all? Maybe an inconvenience either way but it reduces the risk.


DoubleSpoiler

This is how many large casinos work. Some will have you take pictures with your mask on and off so they can identify you either way.


BoardwalkKnitter

The casinos in Atlantic City are only making you pull your mask down and look up at the camera when redeeming winnings for cash at the teller windows.


bitNine

If you visit a dispensary here in CO they will ask you to remove your mask so that they can compare your ID photo to your face, before entering. edit: Many are saying they haven't experienced this in CO. I've always been asked to remove it for ID.


h-r-shovenstuff

I went into one with a mask, sunglasses, and a hat on. They ID'd me as soon as I walked in, but they only asked me to take my hat off for a second. That seemed silly.


bitNine

Hahaha, wtf. "I'm sorry sir, but the receding hairline in your picture doesn't match your head. This picture has WAY more hair."

Actually, that's pretty reasonable.


remotelove

Yep. Totally cool had to do the same thing. I love my guns but I love safety and security above that. If you can't stand having your picture taken in a safe environment because you choose to own deadly weapons, you probably shouldn't own deadly weapons.

Holmes02

A string walks into a bar with a few friends and orders a beer. The bartender says, "I'm sorry, but we don't serve strings here." The string walks away a little upset and sits down with his friends. A few minutes later he goes back to the bar and orders a beer. The bartender, looking a little exasperated, says, "I'm sorry, we don't serve strings here." So the string goes back to his table. Then he gets an idea. He ties himself in a loop and messes up the top of his hair. Then he walks back up to the bar and orders a beer. The bartender squints at him and says, "Hey, aren't you a string?" And the string says, "Nope, I'm a frayed knot."

elleape

Ugh, after that restaurant here in Texas kicked out a family for refusing to REMOVE their masks, I can now see other places doing the same.


justinkimball

Even better -- their infant (who was back home with someone watching them) is immunocomprompised. Even betterer -- the bar/grill waited until they had already ordered/ate before they kicked them out. Even bettererer -- they have no posted signs about any of this. The owner makes his wait staff tell people with masks after they've come in. EDIT: [https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10007909/New-parents-wearing-masks-protect-immunocompromised-son-kicked-Texas-restaurant.html](https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10007909/New-parents-wearing-masks-protect-immunocompromised-son-kicked-Texas-restaurant.html)


cinematicme

Bigger question, why did they pay? I’d have told that waitress to tell the owner to fuck right off and left the food on the table.


travman6

Yeah it's not like they are ever coming back. Sure you can kick me out, but I'll just leave.


tee142002

Seems like it'd be fun to come back in a few weeks (after the restaurant forgot what I look like) and order a bunch of super expensive stuff so I can leave without paying after getting kicked out.

justinkimball

Not a great decision -- but an understandable one. From the article, they haven't gotten out in a very long time -- and were having a rare dinner with friends. I don't know that I'd be choosing to eat indoors at a public resteraunt if my kid had cystic fibrosis -- but I get it.


EclipsePen

>I don't know that I'd be choosing to eat indoors at a public resteraunt if my kid had cystic fibrosis In Covid infested Texas of all places.


pjjmd

Pandemic fatigue is real. It seems pretty obvious at this point that Covid is going to be endemic, and have regular flare ups for the forseeable future. The vaccine lowers individual risk, but it hasn't been a silver bullet that stops community spread. What's more, there are places in the world where covid is present and the vaccine is unavailable. The WHO estimates we need ~10 billion doses to vaccinate the world. We are doing 1.5 billion a year, and I don't count on us keeping our attention on it. Maybe in a decades time, we will start to work towards erradicating Covid, but it's likely just going to become like the Flu (in that it's an endemic disease that routinely kills people but fighting it is too difficult/expensive, so we rely on mitigation efforts), except Covid is significantly more deadly. There will be more effort put into mitigating it's effects, but it's not going to stop killing people any time soon. As a person living in these times, you eventually just shift your acceptable risk profile. There will be no point in the next decade where there won't be community spread of Covid in Texas. So you get your vaccine, and you figure out how you can live some version of the life you want, while mitigating the risk. For this family, that meant occasional trips to restaurants, where they would be as diligent as was reasonable with mask wearing.


Foot_Dizzy

Texan here. I'm vaxxed, live alone, and go nowhere except work because I can't social distance at work (we do wear masks). I know so many people who have gotten COVID in the past few weeks and they were mostly unvaxxed people (who decided to get vaxxed *after* getting COVID.)


yeswecann

Pro Tip: Get vaxxed *before* COVID


falafeliron

I know someone with cf who's mother and sister are antivax antimask trumpers. They have the audacity to guilt trip her for never seeing them or letting them see her kids.


MattTheTable

Not seeing your grandchildren to own the libs.


Cuchullion

That's where my parents are! My son is five months old and is premature. We made it a requirement to see him that people have their flu / COVID shots. Both my parents refused, and now take every opportunity to try to guilt trip me about not being able to see him.


YourMomThinksImFunny

Never let up. They are choosing a political stance over seeing their own grandchild. Next time they try to guilt trip you ask them how they think you feel? They care so little about your child, they would rather nit see them than get a free vaccine.


MildlyUnusualMan

Man who claims government is abusing authority, follows suit by abusing his own authority…fucking hypocrite


Mordicool

The best part is that these businesses giving orders to remove masks are the people who cry the loudest that nobody can tell them what to do.


impostle

Why can't the family wear a mask if they want to? If youre an advocate for people choosing not to wear a mask then surely you would also be in favor of people being allowed to choose if they want to ear one.

Hang Time Sports Grill and Bar


Ronkerjake

It's always a fucking sports bar being run by morons


gelinrefira

It is the lowest bar for a restaurant since you don't need to actually make good food for it to survive. Just fry some shit up, put on ESPN and Sportscenter and sell alcohol at WTF prices.


madeamashup

A sports bar is a bar with sports on several TVs, yes?


El_Gran_Redditor

Which is now like 80% of all bars in America including barcades, bowling alleys and speakeasy type secret bars and anything else that should have a better gimmick than "waiting room with alcohol and ESPN playing in the background." Say what you will about the toilet-dirty dives you could go to a decade ago but I'd take putting on a pulpy horror or action DVD over a muted version of Sports Center any day.

Hounmlayn

Talking about being based on the same techbology which brought us covid vaccines, I've read somewhere that there has been some cancer treatment and prevention breakthroughs from it too. It may seem that the extra funding and focus on medicine by the world may have had multi-beneficial effects!


KingZarkon

mRNA vaccine technology was actually being developed for use in cancer treatment before COVID-19 came along. Moderna was founded specifically to pursue that sort of thing a few years ago.

eGGplantwaterwater

In school we had “Red Ribbon Week,” and I think it had something to do with drugs. I might be remembering it wrong because drugs are fun.


FeloniousStunk

You're not remembering wrong; "Red Ribbon Week" was associated with the D.A.R.E. program and I had it every school year beginning in 4th grade and ending in my 8th grade year. ETA: It was a week where they made us wear red ribbons pinned to our shirts and we'd have police officers come in to show us videos of drunk drivers and people high on drugs, then they would lecture us about the dangers of drugs & alcohol. There were various presentations and activities they made us participate in, and on the last day we would have a "Say No to Drugs" walk-a-thon, and all of the kids in my elementary/middle school would walk a course that went through our entire small town (one redlight small) and loop back around to the schools. The funniest part is a good portion of the 7th & 8th graders would break off from everyone else and go smoke weed at one of their houses in town. I even did it myself during my 8th grade year, lol.


[deleted]

What I learned from the DARE program in 4th grade is that ALL drugs are bad, all the time, and there is ABSOLUTELY ZERO positive benefit to taking any of these things. And if you smoke weed even once you’ll be found forced by a drug dealer to begin injecting heroin into your dick veins. What I wasn’t told about is that Drugs Are ~~Very~~ Really Expensive. If they had mentioned that I’d probably have listened.

ForeverInaDaze

The deflated woman in a couch was my favorite. I think Dave Chappelle made the joke like “that only makes me want to smoke more. Where can I find the weed she’s smoking?”


TheDevilsAutocorrect

It has happened quite a bit as an adult. I don't think a firm no is required though. It is more of a pro forma offer. "You want some " "No thank you." "You sure? There is plenty?" "No, I'm good." Sigh of relief.

GrindcoreNinja

When I was in high school all the stoners (myself included) loved to get high in D.A.R.E shirts before the assembly, stupid I know, but we thought it was hilarious.


schmerpmerp

I remember after all of the doom and gloom about the dangers and costs of drugs, the cop at the front of the class asked something like, "Now that you kids know all the dangers, will you try drugs if given the opportunity?" I stuck my hand up and said something like, "Well, yeah, that all sounds pretty fun and exciting." Took me a while to live that one down.


ricosmith1986

At least you were honest. Studies have proven that DARE actually makes kids more interested in drugs that up until then they had never heard of.


BuffaloInCahoots

It was dumb because I knew people who smoked weed. I had a basic understanding of what it was and how it worked. Then I heard a bunch of bs from DARE about what would happen if I smoked even once. Made me not trust anything they said.

I’m a High School baseball player and runner. The biggest and nicest fields i’ve visited were all in Katy. Because of how recently built it is and how many young people are living there there’s a lot of money in the district. Also don’t forget the $70 MILLION HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL STADIUM!

One of their responses is literally Its a gun store…we usually shoot people in the face when they come in masked up..rule is for your safety…nothing political. Yeah sure . . . not political.. . .my ass.


Chris935

There's some level of legitimate security concern, but it can be solved by requiring people to take their mask off, look at a camera, then put it back on again.


ThexAntipop

Or even just talking to people like an adult and explaining the situation instead of making a complete ass of yourself.

I live kind of in the country on the outskirts of Fort Worth Tx, there’s been multiple times just being in a gas station or grocery store wearing a mask and dudes come up to me and tell me to take off my mask and “quit being scared of a virus.” lol people are so fucking weird


Singlewomanspot

Tell them you're more scared of the medical bill.


barooboodoo

This is a great response to deescalate things, it's true, it's funny, and it doesn't insult them (regardless of how much they might deserve some insulting).

East Texas here. I got called a liberal by a complete random for wearing a mask once. I told him to quit being such a sensitive little snowflake and mind his own business. It seemed to short circuit something, he was still processing when I walked away.

My friends dad literally died of covid 3 weeks ago. People who say not to be scared of it likely have a very unpleasant reality check ahead of them.


Durty_Durty_Durty

Oh man, my best friends family is anti mask/anti vax big republicans and her died just passed from COVID a few weeks ago. They still didn’t go get vaccinated after watching her dad suffocate on a ventilator.


ginger_whiskers

I live close to you, been masked for a while. While I haven't heard any real hostility to it, people are really curious. About monthly a cashier will ask how I can breathe in that thing, or kinda shrink back and ask if I'm contagious. You'd think people who deal with hundreds of customers weekly would be used to it by now, but no.


TwistedJake503

Don't shoot the messenger, just throwing out a random fact. I personally don't care if anyone smokes weed or not. For what it is worth you can't legally buy a gun, in any state, if you use marijuana. Doesn't matter if legal in your state, you have a medical card, etc. Question 21e on form 4473 will prevent the transfer unless you lie on a federal document.


bistix

The sign also specifies hemp. I am curious how that works federally. I know it's the same plant but federally I don't think hemp is considered marijuana.


phiiscool

Hemp must meet certain statutory requirements to not be a controlled substance (eg. <0.3% by weight THC). You can’t tell if it’s legal or not by sight or smell alone.


VectorB

Also to be slightly fair, the gun store by me requires you to remove your mask at the door, look up at the camera then continue in and put it back on.


Krieger-sama

Yes I have heard of this as well and I think it’s totally reasonable, I don’t think that’s the concern at all though given that people have found this gun store owner’s angry replies to reviews


TwistedJake503

That makes total sense. I'm not sure how banks are handling the masks but that sounds like a good plan. Used to be a time not long ago that wearing a mask into a bank would "sound the alarms."


19wesley88

You can just keep a mask on in a bank in the UK. When you get to the counter you use chip and pin to verify its you.


oreo-cat-

This is less verifying it's you and more identifying you in a police lineup.

djmacbest

Yesterday in Germany a 20 year old gas station clerk was killed by a shot to the head because he asked a customer to put his mask on. Not on the spot, the customer went home and came back two hours later, then shot the guy point blank in the head. Today, he turned himself in and said he did it because he hates any kind of corona restrictions and wanted to make a point. (German source, for anyone interested: https://news-trier.de/live-ticker-zur-pressekonferenz-toetungsdelikt-20-jaehriger-in-idar-oberstein-erschossen/) I really can't laugh about a statement like this anymore.


highdefrex

> Today, he turned himself in and said he did it because he hates any kind of corona restrictions and wanted to make a point. Aside from the fact this is a horrible act, this is one thing that I *hate* about these people. Like, we get it. You hate the mask mandates and restrictions. But blaming the retail workers and food service employees and fucking 20 year old gas station clerks for it and arguing with them like they have *anything* to do with making and setting such rules and laws, let alone fucking *murdering them*, is utterly beyond me. It’s the same people who go into, say, a Target and flip out on an employee because they don’t like the price of an item, as if the part-time minimum wage employee has any say in what things cost. I hate that they’re all around us.

>… he wanted to make a point Is the point he wanted to make that he’s a fucking psychopath?

If they ever actually did have to use their weapons in self defense this comment will 100000% be used against them. They need more common sense.

In their defense; the weed thing is actually a law that could trip them up. Knowingly selling a firearm to a person who uses illegal substances is a federal crime, marijuana is still federally illegal, federal laws govern gun stores... and the BATF enforces federal gun sale laws with sting/'test' tactics that border on the absurd. *"Your honor, Agent Smith ensured that Confidential Informant B was wearing dreadlocks and covered in oils that gave off a strong odor of marijuana, right before making his firearm purchase and filling out the 4473 where he clearly joked about his using illegal drugs, in spite of saying no on the form... and yet Defendant Stevens, the attendant behind the counter, knowingly sold him the firearm anyway... "* Thing is, the above sounds ridiculous to anyone who has never seen a BATF case against a FFL before- they're thinking "...there's no way it *ACTUALLY* happens like that..."- and yet, it does. That's precisely how they roll when virtue testing FFL dealers.

Yeah anybody who’s ever actually purchased a firearm knows there’s quite a bit of paperwork involved. Although some questions are basically on the honor system. “Are you currently addicted to drugs or alcohol? Mark yes or no” uhhhhh

Got my carry permit in PA. “Is your character and reputation such that you would be likely to act in a manner dangerous to public safety” is the first question.


MasterPip

Uhm, can't you use the same argument they do? "You can't force me to wear a mask!" "You can't force me to take mine off" But I bet their argument is legit and yours is just propaganda 🙄 Edit: My point was to, sarcastically, point out the hypocrisy in their argument of being anti mask. Using the same argument for your excuse but calling others propaganda is the hypocrisy. The "just don't go in" is moot as that wasn't what my comment was about.

Mask removal permit I (insert name here) have approval from the President of the Health and Other Health Related Healths Guild to wear a mask at any time I choose. IT IS UNLAWFUL TO DEMAND I REMOVE MY MASK I have an underlying health condition that requires I not remove my mask.

Here is my 100% real card signed by two people confirming I have not been vaccinated.

> I have an underlying health condition that requires I not remove my mask. intelligence?


zyzyzyzy92

> intelligence I wanted to say it's common sense, but after looking at the ~~morons dumbasses fucking idiots~~ *people* that refuse to wear a mask I'll have to agree that the correct underlying health condition, if in fact, intelligence.

Who’s hot boxing their car then going gun shopping?


smooshie

Wait wait wait this is in Katy right? [Check out the owner's mature and coherent responses to his reviews](https://i.imgur.com/AirwdXe.png).


Farmer771122

lol. Sure. They checked out their security cameras, and *cross-referenced them with google reviews.* Makes total sense.


FearfulTube

Must've been a slow day.


Hoovooloo42

With signs like that, I bet they have more slow days with every passing week. "I ONLY WANT CUSTOMERS ESPECIALLY SUSCEPTIBLE TO THE PANDEMIC AND WHO WONT TAKE PRECAUTIONS"


AsthmaticNinja

There's some drama going on in one of the other gun subreddits right now with a gun store/range setting up a website to offer money on exchange for the info of redditors who left bad reviews.


GrifterDingo

Reviewer: "The sign seemed unnecessary.." Owner: "You are filled with so much RAGE and ANGER. We sell big boy guns for MEN buttercup, fuck off and suck my dick."


swordtech

Jesus what a peewee-dicked little man (the shop owner). "I didn't like the sign in the window so I went somewhere else." "Oh you don't like the sign? So you personally hate me with your rage?!?!"


madmosche

Lol they are down to a 2.9 now, it’s beautiful. Hundreds of new 1-star reviews


dougshell

I don't think you can posses marijuana and be a legal gun owner. Shit needs to change.
