What are you, twelve?If they want to be difficult, buy 3 or 4 strats online at guitarcenter.com and then return everyone of them just before 45 days to the same GC. When they cry about it, tell them, "well you wouldn't let me look at any of them so how am I gonna tell if they are any good". Use their own BS against them.
You say you disagree with me 100% but I think we actually agree about 75%. That is, I agree with 3 out of the 4 things you said. It's the last part where I part ways with your thinking. The body does have frontline defenses, true, but I'm sticking with CDC recommendations on sanitizing surfaces and washing my hands and wearing a mask even in very low risk encounters.I disagree 100%
Rarely do they see anyone of the hundreds of thousands that have been allowed to work from home, are wearing masks & being responsible while engaging in limited indoor contact like grocery shopping, trips to the post office, drive thru etc.
Your body is set up to neutralize limited external viral contact quite well. Skin, saliva, nostril hairs, first line of blood defense are all very effective in negating limited exposure. This is why COVID patients almost all tend to have a story that makes sense: prolonged (over hours) indoor unprotected exposure. You need to be exposed to the virus in a certain quantity/quality of exposure.
Thus, I think the fear mongering that by simply touching a guitar in a huge indoor space with less than 10 or so people more than 10 feet apart while all parties wear masks & sanitize you're going to catch COVID doesn't hold up to scrutiny. Those aren't the people in the ICU's.
Exposure to pathogens is what builds an immune system. With constant cleaning of everything, more allergies and illnesses will crop up.It amazes me that nothing was ever wiped down to being with. It took this virus to make everyone actually clean and to make those who had a false sense that everything was, not have that sense anymore.
it worked for me... I got thrown out of woolies one lunchtime when I’d popped out of school to get something. I got thrown out by someone who obviously thought she’d thrown me out before... so I never went in another woolies, and what do you know, 15 years later they went out of business!Go get 'em, tiger!
Experienced woodwind players either take our own mouthpiece and reed if we’re trying instruments, or disinfectant wipes if we’re trying mouthpieces. Brass players are usually so full of alcohol no germs can survive contact with themI've never understood people that want to demo community harmonicas and horns or put your mouth on a used talk-box every other person, booger fingered kid and who knows what else has been checking out.
Yeah all the experienced brass players I know go to GC to check stuff out! And snotty booger fingers can contaminate the entire piece!Experienced woodwind players either take our own mouthpiece and reed if we’re trying instruments, or disinfectant wipes if we’re trying mouthpieces.
