    Winter is coming and that's why (at my age) I got my 5th jab last month in preparation. Besides, I'm exposed 4 times a week to schoolkids, who come to my place for Nachhilfe, where I insist they and I wear masks indoors. All four have had Corona - two of them twice. So it's only logical that I'm careful. I still wear a mask when shopping, although most people I see (also oldies) don't seem to bother anymore. I haven't caught Corona so far and also haven't suffered any side effects of the vaccine.

    You evil freak making kids wears masks!

     

    maybe limit your contact to other people if you are so scared! was that not the original narrative?

    Are you ready for the New Normal?

    yep! this was also predicted by the so called conspiracy theorists two years ago! 

    very little news about COVID these days because now most are already controlled taking vaccines that they know nothing about.

    Now all the sheep will follow and turn their heating down to whatever random number they are told to.

    5,000 people in an unventilated tent at Wiesen against 30 people having to wear a mask on a bus is laughable. 

    The German government actually wanted to upgrade the Maskenpflicht for flying  to FFP2 but due to the rest of Europe having no mask requirement they also agreed it was best to abolish it. Again, laughable! was it not that we should trust science!

    All the pro vaxers have been fooled hook, line and sinker, never been any proof that it prevents serious illness. The weakening of the virus did that itself.

    so enjoy your winter being cold; 'to help others' and let's see what the next control mechanism will be!

    I wholeheartedly agree.  I'm not worried about myself, but my busses and trains are full with at risk people who must use public trans.  I feel it's my duty to participate in keeping them as safe as possible.  It's a minor inconvenience.

    please don't bother, quite happy to stay at home  for a couple of days with the sniffles and anyone who is at danger of getting seriously ill should stay at home anyway.

    The older ICs still have this is some of their carriages.  And I miss it too.

    when one was young and reckless, could even open the door and jump off on to the platform while the train was still moving!

    I do not condone this!😀

    I'm currently sitting on a regional train, with all windows sealed and no AC, in Germany.  Quite stuffy in here.  75% mask wearing compliance, with 75% of them using surgical masks, and 50% of those are sitting on chins.  Masks come off before the doors even open. 

    And that's why it's stupid to enforce a rule that is not in place in most of the rest of the world. If you want to wear a mask please do it but if you don't then do not so. 

    I feel many are wearing them haphazardly anyway just to avoid any fine that might come, but that does not protect anyone.

    But ICE and most IC do not have openable windows.  And transport that does, they are often tiny and useless.  I guess we could smash them.  I have thought about it on a long journey on an IC in August, with broken AC.

    yep, miss the old British rail trains from the 80s/90s with slide down windows where you could get a blast of fresh air!

    Ha.  Not sure how often you travel on transport here.  ICEs and new ICs and a lot of newer trams and buses only have teeny tiny windows, because they want to discourage them being opened, because of the AC.

    Then maybe they should turn off the AC as it actually doesn't work very well when the temperature is above 25 Deg and encourage natural air flow through open windows

    My point is that if it's obligatory on trains/busses then it should be on planes too.  I have no problem with the rule, but why is it being applied inconsistently?

    something to do with air filtering on air planes but busses and trains can have open windows!

  10. Flight from Munich to Athens with Lufthansa where most passengers were international and there was a supposed Maskenpflicht, you could spot the Germans as they were masked up but the for the 70% whom were not it was not enforced.

    Flight back from Mykonos which was close to 100% Germans all masked up and I was told off for taking too long to eat my Breze during take off. To quote: "Sir, I noticed you have been eating that Breze for 10 mins, there is a mask requirement on this flight.,"

    what happens 15 mins later? They wheel out the the trolley and everyone is eating, drinking and chatting without masks for at least an hour!

    it's lunacy, farcical and outright stupid!

    At least we know it's safe not to wear a mask from September 24th but it isn't today!😂

  11. I think even Mr. Bear admitted to having COVID but luckily after not taking experimental test shots he did not end up in the  hospital!

    BTW come October anyone who's last shot was more than 3 months ago will be classed as an unvaccinated terrorist.
