I think masks are more to stop you transmitting the covid than to stop you catching it, although apparantly they do provide some protection for you. You can also catch it through your eyes if it's in the air.

One should wear a mask even when taking a dump alone in WC! You won't be aware of transmitting it ...

 

My mask is constantly on me chew even during a sleep. I am keep repeating that to my hospitals-keen household. 

However, reason for mask during the sleep is a pure defence ..., doesn't matter what "doctor Stiggs" is saying above. surprise

 

I really feel awkward thou entering the bank with the mask on ...

Healthy first ... I wasn't aware, robbers were so much into prevention of the ...

I can imagine the joys of coughing and sneezing into your mask while you are wearing it - so healthy for you breathing that in.
A cough/sneeze is the normal/healthy way your body expells particles from your body.

You have a cold, nothing more or less.

you do not have the plague.

In fact becasue you have a cold, the chances of you 'catching and transmitting 'Covid' are next to nothing' (from a doctor friend)

The common cold is the same family of viruses as 'COVID' 
You are a normal person with normal health.

 

I can not understand why people expect to be 100% well 100% of the time.

That is not how nature works, and we are all part of nature. TBH it is laughable how terrified people have become while experiencing normal bodily functions. We will be all made to feel afraid for even breathing soon.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
