Yesterday, I saw another Solo Diaperer. An old lady in her Buick, all by herself . . . except for her Diaper.
Which made me wonder: Have these people become so habituated to wearing their Diaper that they no longer bother to take them off, even when they are alone? Like clothes we wear (usually) whenever we’re out and about – even if we are by ourselves?
It has to be that. It cannot be that these people are so afraid of sickness that they are afraid to even be alone in their car without their facial security blankets – which of course is what these ugly devices are (in addition to being training devices). The wearing makes them “feel safe” – which I must assume means they’ve never read the box. Where it says, plain as day, that these things do not serve to prevent the reception or transmission of respiratory viruses. But then, it is a virtue to not read – and to so signal, by wearing the idiotic but insidious devices.
I am seeing more and more of these Freaks in my area. After I saw – and recorded – this one, I ventured to Earth Fare, which is a good place to go to gauge the mental health of the population because this place attracts the least mentally healthy types (i.e., liberals, who have metastasized into virulently authoritarian leftists). Here one sees self-imposed Diapering; there are no “mandates” nor even signs “suggesting” facial effacement. The fact that some people still wear the Diaper, regardless tells you just how committed these people are to the ritual.
One assumes, moreover, that most if not all of these Walking Chronics are “vaccinated” – and thus (if they believed their own delusions) “safe” from the sickness they obsess over. And yet, they continue to Diaper.
About half of them.
And about an eighth of them, from what I have been able to determine from surveying the scene, never take the rag off. They wear it in their car, even when alone in their car. The virus is apparently very speedy, fast enough to catch them as they trundle down the road at 35 MPH.
Maybe they wear it to bed, as some members of various other religious sects wear their “garments” to bed.
The bug-eyed Freak in the Buick was going considerably faster than 35 MPH. This also interested me. I observed her “speed” – that is, drive faster than the safe speed, according to The Science. Or rather, according to the same authoritarian “experts” who tell her (who tell everyone) they should “wear a mask” to “keep them safe.” It does not matter what type of “mask,” only that the face is effaced.
Yet this Diaper-effaced old lady felt free to ignore The Science – and the injunctions of the “experts” – when it came to her driving. Call it Situational Safety.
Like Situational Health. This interesting habit of the sick of wearing a useless “mask” while (often) buying a shopping cart full of very unhealthy soda pop, candy and chips. Of wearing the “mask” sometimes – and partially.
One just marvels at it.
I watched her accelerate aggressively. I saw her weave and pass. It was a challenge for me to keep up with her.
But she was “safe” – in terms of her Sickness Kabuki. She “practiced” the ultimate in social distancing this side of six feet under, by enclosing herself within her car and enclosing her face, behind her Diaper.
If I had been able to catch up with her, I would have signed for her to roll down her window – if she dared to risk it – and then asked her why the selective science? Why she rigorously “practices” the ne plus ultra absurdity of Sickness Kabuki within her car but drives her car contrary to the recommended practices of The Science?
I’m sure that, had I been able to catch up – and persuaded her to risk rolling down her window – she would have frowned sourly (if I could have seen it) and berated me for putting her “at risk.”
And they ask me why I drink . . .
