Are you saying that you understand what his analogy meant?

My best guess is that he's saying the masks don't really do much at this point in the same way you can leave your condoms at home in going to a baby shower because she's already pregnant.

But it omits the fact that he is planning on having sex with many of the non-pregnant women at the shower.

That's why I like my analogy better. Its more to the point and less controversial. But has nothing to do with poker unfortunately

What he is saying is that at this point in the pandemic, everyone has been exposed, so masks are pointless.

The reason why his analogy is hard to understand is because it is really, really, really wrong. You were looking for a credible statement in the anology. There wasn't one

This analogy is differen than the point that Nozsr was making, and it is also wrong. You wear a mask when you are driving because once you put the mask on, you shouldn't touch it. Taking it off and putting it back on every time you get in and out of the car is basically cross contaminating an exposed surface with your face.

So your analogy also fails.

If we keep wearing masks for the foreseeable future until we have a vaccine, we might get more used to seeing them in public social settings.

That way, sitting in a card room around others wearing masks might start to feel less awkward than it would right now? Personally, I feel like one of the deciding factors to go back would be seeing that other people I can relate to are back. And I doubt that will happen before the casino can provide a non-awkward social setting.

Just when you think there couldn’t be a more poorly thought out analogy than some we’ve seen in these threads...

Hey everyone, diseases already exist, so there's no point in washing your hands. Stable doors and bolted horses.

The doors don’t even need to be that stable if the horses are bolted down.

Wearing masks in public is normal in many parts of the world. It wouldn't be a bad thing if that becomes normalized in the US as well.

It's silly that they had to politard up something as innocuous as wearing a face mask to protect lives during a deadly pandemic.

Re: General poker-related coronavirus discussion, argument, and jibber jabber

mod: as a reminder, we're allowing some arguments about CV and its impacts on poker here in this thread. While that may sometimes veer into a political direction or otherwise run afoul of our rules here, as long as it is live poker related CV discussion, we're giving it a slightly wider latitude here for the time being.

But that does not mean you have an open license to argue about politics or discuss politically charged current events of any sort here. This is not the politics or economics forum. Please find somewhere else to argue about that stuff.
