    The A2 low fat stuff tastes great. I've been an A2 fan for years. Nothing to do with the "A2 protein" marketing bullshit - I just bought it because of the taste.

    What's the latest panic buying thing? Nope not food, masks. Coles, Bunnings etc have now put hard limits on them.

    Hardly surprising, Dan's announcement on face masks was always going to produce panic buying if it wasn't already happening.

    what about the sewing machines, and the fabric!?

    but was wondering, if a "home made mask" is allowed, if you're stopped, take off your t-shirt and wrap it around your mouth/nose...

    Well they come when the stores run out of pre-made ones because not everyone will want to make their own. Then there will be the fashion statement ones that cost 10 times as much and have a logo or a slogan on them so people can look cool. Give it enough time though and Spotlight will be in the media talking about running out of sewing machines.

    I believe Dan did say home made masks were okay, but as it doesn't effect me I haven't followed the do's and don'ts too closely.

    A home made double-cotton mask is very effective.

    Bill Nye is not science... masks have little evidence of working in the states.

    Mask effectiveness has been so confusing due to misinformation. Everyone including the government is to blame for that.

    Nearly all materials are quite helpful in reducing the area of effect of an infected person, the better the material the smaller area of effect that they can easily spread it.

    This shouldn't be up for debate, this is primary school science.

    However this requires that most infected people wear it, regular cloth/surgical masks are not effective if only healthy people wear them.

    Thats why it needs to be mandatory that everyone wears them as some people might not know they have it, and some people are just stupid and think their cough is something else.

    N95 masks however can be useful if you are around people not wearing a mask, but really needs to be paired with eye protection.

    What made you change your mind from saying they should mandate masks to now believing that masks have little evidence of working?

    The reason they're recommended now has little to do with how effective masks are, by the way. 4 months, supply of masks was low, community spread risk was low. Now the supply of masks is higher and the risk of community spread is higher. That's what changed.

    If you have a high quality mask.. it will help.. but if you have a cloth mask.. its next to useless. If you're going to mandate masks... make people wear the good ones otherwise you're just wasting time. The US has shown that masks mandates are useless.

    A main purpose of allowing cloth masks is to make the process simpler to ease people in. People are very resistant to doing new things so the idea is to make wearing masks easy to normalise the process, then improve it once people are already onboard.

    I've been having a lot of trouble getting mystery meat and single prawns;

    Both meats are covid safe because they suggest you should wash your hands, or the meat, or something!
    But is that weight of mystery meat really enough to feed the whole family?
    I reckon the single prawn is the way some clubs and pubs buy them for the Surf N Turf meals.
