I know it sounds terribly dramatic, but would getting some kind of face mask be a good idea for traveling around in vehicle dense enviroments? I had to spend several hours walking along packed roads today and I felt like shit; I got a ache at the base of my skull and I could taste and smell the acrid smog the whole time. Smog's not the right word because you can't even see it, but by heck it's there.

When I used to have to cycle along busy main roads to get to work, I bought one of these masks. I definitely felt much better after I started wearing it.

Walking with one on probably makes you look like a weirdo though.

The good brand is respro, and they're not all that expensive really.
There are dirt cheap Chinese ones, and while they look identical, you can't really tell how the efficiency of the filter compares without sending it to a specialist lab. Maybe the cheap ones filter out the fine diesel particulates just as well, maybe they don't.

I can only assume that the cheap Chinese ones have got asbestos in them.

Would people care if I put on that mask? I mean, I shouldn't have any problems since I'm a pretty big guy. For you to think of that is a masterstroke, I'm planning on getting one as a next step.

No one will care who you are until you put on the mask.

Would the police take an interest in you if it looks like you're taking steps to hide your face? I was walking in wind and rain once and struggling to keep my hood up. A police car drove past and the cop in the passenger seat swivelled his head right around to look at me. I assumed he thought I was trying to hide my face with my hood.

They could make that mask in a flesh tone and draw a fake mouth on then you'd look normal from a distance and deformed from close up. Maybe people would just politely avert their eyes.

I see asians knocking about in flu masks all the time, so maybe if you look oriental enough the coppers will leave you alone.

I thought that too but didn't think it was feasible for him to make himself look Asian if he wasn't.

Forget what others think - you're taking steps to avoid carcinogens and other nasty stuff in the atmosphere.

It's part of a police constable's job to take an interest in who is kicking about on their beat. If one asks, you can always explain it and if you get a response other than "fair enough", then they're the ones being arseholes.

What exactly is this epic satire supposed to mean? Are you just a racist, brain dead, cunt or... no, no that's it, you're just a racist, brain dead, cunt.

I think it might have been an actual suggestion, you really jumped the gun on that one.

Why aren't you calling the posts about East Asians racist?

Fucking hell, do you need every little thing explaining or have you got a brain you can use? Maybe even try renting one for the afternoon, you might enjoy it.

The posts about "yellowing up" are funny because the idea of avoiding police attention by dressing like an 19th century mandarin are patently absurd. The joke isn't "haha, Asians" it's "haha, who would do such a thing?". Are we on the same page or are you punch drunk from my use of nuance?

The lad who brough up hijabs apropos of nothing was clearly having a dig at the item of clothing itself, and is probably the type of cunt who thinks "that stupid bitch in her hijab, she doesn't even know she's oppressed, God I'm so enlightened" and Pat Condell is funny.

This post - >>4673 basically said 'wear a mask like the asians' - apropos of nothing, or at least the exact same fucking context as the other post.

This post - >>4675 just said 'wear a hijab'

I really fail to see anything difference there, it's literally two different posts suggesting you wear face accessories linked to two different ethnic groups. You're reading into the post massively, presumably just to upset yourself.

Simmer the fuck down.

Except it wasn't, the comment about wearing make up to look Asian clearly stemmed from the fact that it's mostly Asians who wear these masks.

You didn't even read which post I linked, obviously.

I sometimes use a mask I purchased for this very purpose from the Cambridge Mask Company.

One noticeable difference while wearing it out and about is that people are unable to see you smile at them. So if you catch someone's eye and want to be friendly, or bump into someone and want to look apologetic, you can't. It's quite dramatic how being bereft of that single facial expression can suddenly make you a social outcast, quite apart from wearing something odd in the first place.

u wot m8. Hijab's would cover the mask, so OP-lad wouldn't need to be self-conscious about his mask. Hijab's are the most socially acceptable way of covering your face that I could think of, hence the suggestion.
