To mkamionka: Masks

Hello Mariusz,

I agree with you; masks can't hurt, but they very well may help us to stay healthy. Wearing a mask is such a small inconvenience, and yet so many are fighting against it. It seems...

Don't worry Nurse Craig,

I only put on gloves for one-time use, such as using a shopping cart in the supermarket, then I take them off and throw them away. Wearing the same gloves all day would...

To bona: Empty streets

Hello again, Andre,

To GyurMaster: Federal Hall

Hello Gy,
