I'm just relieved somebody hasn't decided 'people' is offensive.

I'm amused that no one seems to have complained about the use of the German word for "human", yet. Can't wait to see the surprised Picachu faces when someone notices.

So is it "Have you ever spent much time around persons whom have autism?"

Or is it "Have you ever spent much time around persons who have autism?"
"Have you ever spent much time around persons who have autism?" Except it would be "people" since we're talking about various specific humans. "Peoples" is for large groups of humans. "The peoples of the Earth [connoting the various civilizations, nations, etc.] are doomed if they don't work together to stop the reptilians."

It would only be "whom" if it were something like, "There are many autistic people with whom I've spent time."

The German language isn't to be played with, leave that to crazy English.

Roughly half of the unvaccinated adult population of NY has tested positive for covid in the last 6 weeks.

Good, now they are effectively the same as the vaccinated.

Oh wait, they don't have state papers for that do they?

Should be more interested in what makes sense rather than doing what you're told to do. Always.

Isn't much reason to wear masks outside.

Other than it being fucking cold.

I also heard that yesterday - is the CDC saying that as well? Or do they still recommend a mask when outside in a group?

I really, really don't like wearing masks. But they're a game changer when it's below freezing.
They are also a game changer while robbing banks. Without one, people would be like, "Hey, I know you." ...lol

Yeah it sounds like an incredibly dumb realization but it’s legit way more comfortable outside when it’s cold cold with a mask lol.

I bet it took you over 2 years to figure this out. You were probably wearing one outside or even in your car, alone, with all the windows rolled up, until some authority told you that it was safe not to

Why refute an idiot?

If I were to refute it, I would point out that I was the first person here to claim that the outdoor, largely massless protests/riots of 2020 decreased covid spread.

Oh yeah I forgot about the alternate universe where you refute it

Infection control RN just posted that there's a supply shortage of Covid testing kits all over now, so, starting next week, we're going back to once a week testing again because of that and he expects all of us fooks to be honest about having colds or symptoms, which, knowing many of my co-workers, ain't gonna happen.
