Every time I go on media and say the obvious: outdoors IS safer with much less risk of superspreading (I don't know of a single confirmed outdoor-only mass transmission event) many people object and say Rose Garden! Sturgis! Neither were outdoor only. The price of misinformation.

Yeah, and you have tons of people on Twitter whining like a two-year-old with a soiled nappy because someone had the temerity to walk outside without a mask. And these are the soi-disant “smart” people, too! You know, the “believe science” ones.
The pandemic has made me deeply realize most people know almost nothing, don’t get any smarter, and furthermore don’t even want to. Because it’s, like, hard and stuff.
