Many thanks to an anonymous reader for this gem, from Arizona State University: From: [student fitness person]@asu.edu Date: Wed, Feb 9, 2022 at 3:24 PM Subject: N95 Basketball League Good afternoon, We have been given clearance to offer a basketball league at the [Sun Devils Fitness Complex], the “N95 Basketball League”. Participants are required to wear an N95 Mask while playing. No other masks will be accepted. The SDFC does
You need to wear an N95 MASK. NO OTHER MASKS ARE ALLOWED, only the N95 MASK. You have to bring your OWN N95 MASK. We will NOT supply one. Our staff will be on-site to ENFORCE N95 MASK POLICIES. GAMES WILL BE STOPPED IF YOU'RE NOT WEARING YOUR MASKS RIGHT. If you keep not wearing them right we'll JUST CANCEL THE WHOLE THING. There are going to be FORMALIZED RULES, OK? You must HAVE AND WEAR your N95 MASK while playing. THIS IS NOT HARD PEOPLE. THESE ARE EASY TO GET. You can even find them online. There’s NO EXCUSE not to have one and IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN N95 MASK you WON'T be permitted to participate. This is for YOUR SAFETY.
As a resident of Arizona, this is fucking disgusting.
N95 + playing basketball + 3x vax... the heart failure combo meal
I thought I had seen the entirety of pandemic absurdity
I was wrong
The sad thing is, they will get players...
Also, holy crap the universities need to be dismantled right to the cobblestones. Institutes of insanity...
Expect increased myocarditis events...............
Ok. I may be the only one on here that is an Alumni from ASU. In fact when I saw ASU in the title I assumed it was typo. ASU was slipping into lunacy even in 1981 when I graduated. Its something to do with the relentless sunshine, so I am told. Being a true Arizona Native, I am skeptical. Rather it was due to the large influx of out of state students (think: California). ASU's in-state tuition was very low. So the out of staters would flood in and try and establish in-state status quickly. It was a cottage industry for lawyers to actually assist these 'illegal' immigrants become in-state. We were one of the first universities to have Blue Jeans Day. What's that you ask? It is a day to celebrate and affirm sodomy. That's right. Everyone was encouraged to wear blue jeans on that day to support the sodomites. I think it started around 1979 if memory serves. Of course everyone on campus wore blue jeans every day back then, so this really turned into Kahki Day for obvious reasons. But ASU was on the front lines of normalizing madness. ASU also was featured in Playboy Magazine as part of a university edition. Why? Because one of the larger dorms was known for being a free-sex dorm "Sin City". It was near the Engineering Building. So I parked by Sin City every day. Since Engineering students back then were celibate :-), we could only wonder at what was happening all-day every-day there. So a mask-league doesn't surprise me. It is pretty tame by ASU standards.
Isn't it crazy how basketball is safe in Texas and Florida but dangerous in Arizona?
At least they aren't out in the rain, waterboarding themselves with the masks like the kids out in the NW rain.
I honestly thought it was a joke when I first read it, but I should have known better. Mask-y people have no sense of humor. Nor do they realize how ridiculous they sound to sane people.
Covid is a virus that mainly effects cognitive function. Once it gets hold of a victim, it turns the brain to mush. Call it Biden Syndrome.
Does the ball have to be masked as well?
"These people sound totally sane and reasonable."
It's the humour and sarcasm that gets me every time. Well done!
Wow. Queue basketball players dropping of oxygen deprivation in 3...2...1...
What about a N100 mask? It might do a better job? Nope dem da rules
Someone should ask the organizers whether they've considered the possibility that at least one person will lose consciousness during a game, sustain a head or other injury and sue them.
It’s downright bizarre how fast KN95 masks became the new shibboleth. Almost makes you think the Covidiots are receiving coordinated messages from HQ via nano-transmitters that self-assembled in their bodies after they were vaxxed. Oh wait ...
(I am not committed one way or the other on the whole “nanotech in the vaxxes” thing, but the weird structures found in the vials by multiple scientists worldwide need explaining. I have enough professional knowledge about nanotech to be of the opinion that what they’re talking about is, in fact, technically possible.)
As an Arizonan, I can attest this is uniquely a “university” affect. In Tucson where I live the mask madness is strong as well. Curious that the universities are the most anti-scientific institutions we have…
