    is there a rumoured pandemic coming?

    Okay, enlighten me pleeze ...

    I see so many 'New Canadians' driving and walking around in public wearing freaking surgical gauze masks quite often; are they either hyper-allergenics, or hypochondriacs?

    Fer fokk's sakes - Richmond and Vancouver have some of the purest air of any big city in the world, so wutts up w/that?

    Every 3rd world country has a bunch of these people wandering around.
    Look at Japan, everyone sicko wears one it seems, so they don't share it. Pretty fuckin sweet if you ask me.

    Kent, are you sure your deoderant was working when you saw them with the masks on,
    or maybe theirs wasn't.

    At first I thought it was bizarre and flat out stupid.

    Once I was told they actually wear them when they themselves are sick, in order to prevent it from being passed on, I have to say I admire it and give a thumbs up to the practice.

    It looks goofy as fuck if you are not used to it.

    Kudos to them for keeping their germs to themselves. Not much else to say on that.

    went to korea last year and everyone had them during flu season. it's comon courtesy if you have a cough you put one of those masks on to not spread the germs. just as long as it's not covering their eyes while they drive it's all good :P

    I'm just here for the intelligent conversation.
    Whatever keeps them from spitting on the street constantly. Also an asian thing.

    I did observe, while I was travelling through the mainland, that some people there even spit openly on the floor in restaurants.
