Soooo how do finger cuts and hangnails feature into all this stuff?
Dude, you do you. You don't have to believe Smoove, or other experts. But arguing that they don't know what they are talking about isn't the greatest look.

You're trying too hard. My teenage son does this - tries to find any exception to a clear answer in order to prove he's right.

So since Covid-19 isn’t bloodborne the finger cut is not relevant.

Now what if a lung lobe happens to land in your takeout bag. Is the risk increased?

Only if you lean in and sniff at it to get a good whiff. Or maybe if you pick it up, then pick your nose before washing your hands.

There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do.

Is Smoove a virology doctor? Nothing to me though as I will not be eating out. But you guys go eat all the food prepared and handled by strangers all you want. True you never know but during a pandemic like this Ill pass.

I am not. But I am sharing the public messages of the PhD food microbiologist that trained me in infectious disease theory. I'm not offended if you don't believe me or the messages I'm sharing - that's certainly your right. But understand the things I'm saying are not my random thoughts or careless musings.

To paraphrase is current message, the risks of not eating are much higher. You do you, Daehawk.

He's a former public health official for the state of NJ if I have that right who has had to deal with food borne illnesses, bioterrorism preparedness, an anthrax attack, and the terrors that lurk in the depths of restaurant freezers and fridges among other things as well as keeping up with health emergencies and the underlying things that come with that like disease transmission.

If I'm recruiting for my prepper compound, he's on my list of people. Also, he has a great board game collection that he'll be bringing along.

The new Popeye's chicken sandwiches have finally hit Canada. They're indeed very good. The meat is surprisingly tender and juicy. I wouldn't wait in line for hours for one, though. At $11.49 ($8.75 USD) for a combo they seem expensive, but that's become the norm for premium fast food offerings. (That is to say, the nicest things on the menu at McDonald's et al.; what I'd call a premium fast food restaurant would be a few dollars more expensive.) And these are Uber Eats prices, so in-store may be cheaper (but not always with chains).

I'll be getting it again. I can't compare it with the old sandwiches, because I never had cause to order them when I could get Popeye's fried chicken or tenders instead. And that's going to continue to be the problem.

I mentioned in another thread that Popeye's opened a new restaurant near my house, and the lines have been insanely long (not as insane as the Jollibee lines when that chain opened on the north side a few years ago...those were 7 hour waits). Not much wait at all though if you simply park the car and walk inside.

Which I did. For my wife. Because I won't eat their crap, period.

I get the attraction there at least (Jollibee). If I'd been living abroad in Moscow for a decade or something and all of a sudden Swiss Chalet opened up a location, I'd line up all day too. But I have no emotional/nostaglic connection with random established chain's latest item, etc.

I've found that I prefer Popeye's to KFC, and those are really the only two options around here (by which I mean 30 miles away) without paying full-service restaurant prices.
There are two chains here that manage decent fried chicken - Browns and White Fence Farm. I tend to avoid the rest. I don't often crave fried chicken and can do much better making my own if that's ever the case (which is almost never since I do it much better on the grill).
Never heard of either. We have a ton of fried chicken chains around here. We have what it technically a chain, called Lee's, though I've personally only ever seen the one. I believe it is a spin off of KFC but there is no comparing the two. It is the best chain fried chicken I've ever had. Until my heart started having problem I'd never turn down the opportunity for Lee's.

Surprisingly acceptable is Church's. I'd never go out of my way for them but if I have a craving, could warrant it, and it was convenient. Church's will do.

Popeyes grilled chicken sandwich is by far the best available in the fast food business.
Not a fan of the seasoning of their fried chicken. I don't know why. So I've never made it back to even know they do grilled chicken. I should make it back to give them a try. They are literally one of 5 different dedicated fried chicken places on my commute.

I meant in the franchise fast food business. I'm sure all of the big cities have specialized chicken places, Los Angeles probably has about 10,000 it seems.

Whenever I'm in the mood for a spicy chicken sandwhich, I get the Asiago Chicken Club Ranch from Wendy's and specify the Spicy Chicken and it's awesome.
