First thing to do if Ebola shtf...shave your beard! Shave your beard, shave your life : P
Shave your beard, shave your life!

Ok maybe not the absolute first thing but hear me out. As a proud beard sporter I would hate to see it go but this may be one of the best things to do first day after shtf. I post this somewhat tongue in cheek but it really is good advice,

Reasons:

1. Your beard will prevent a proper seal of a respirator or gas mask. Hitler famously almost died (unfortunately he didn't) because his mustache prevented his gas mask from forming a seal during a gas attack, that's why he shaved it to that little landing strip.

2. Your beard can hold particles close to your mouth/face increasing chances of infection. That awesome beard could possibly be an aerosolized droplet magnet and increase your chances of getting sick, but also if you are already sick it can hold your particles (sneezes, coughs) making you more of a threat to your loved ones.

3. Shaving day one as opposed to later down the road gets "the big shave" out of the way, you may nic yourself and you would rather it heal up before things get really bad than have that open wound on your face when it matters.

Anyways I wanted this to be a more light hearted but still relevant post amongst all the doom, stay safe out there and let's hope we don't have to shave these beards!

...because those face masks, gloves, and other gear are doing so well at keeping the doctors from getting infected.

It is well known that Beards repel viruses and chemical agents!

I would rather die with a beard than live without one.

Never bring a WMD to a beard fight!

There's no running from the virus. Fight it, and win. The good lord gave us the tools to do so.

How about shaving your beard because they are lame and trendy. "Look at my beard and multi-colored shirt. I am part of the new generation of liberal clueless fucks."

I shave clean just for that reason alone.

Yes and that tool would be to shut down commercial air travel out of Africa

But that would be culturally insensitive

I shave my head. That should be enough for a guy. Gals can shave other places.

Nope, that would still be running. To fight the virus is to fight it with your immune system. There's a reason why most of the online "scientific medical research" claims that marijuana is unhealthy for one reason or another. Cannabis is a steroid for the body's healing.

They can have my beard when they pry it from my cold dead jowls...oh wait.
That’s the thing about progress; all the word means is “continued movement in the same direction.” If the direction was a bad idea to start with, or if it’s passed the point at which it still made sense, continuing to trudge blindly onward into the gathering dark may not be the best idea in the world. Break out of that mental straitjacket, and the range of possible futures broadens out immeasurably.
