@malte use a hand lotion like Excipial Protect that forms a protective layer over your skin rather than just reoiling it. For me it helps a lot even though it feels a bit strange to wash the hands after using it.

are there fats that kill/dissolve the virus, because my knuckles bleed because of all the handwashing, and i can't keep up with lotion/oil, plus, lotion bottles aren't self-decontaminating as soap/ethanol bottles are :-/
or to rephrase that question: what is preferable: unwashed hands or bleeding knuckles?
ps: it works better (as with all the masks), if you replace the two rubbers for behind the ears with one long (shoe) string that goes around your head/neck.
and you may put a piece of wire or other pliable metal in the upper fold to improve fitting around the nose!

This week is part two of 'the formation of blackness' which is a brief historical contextualization of racism connecting science and art
racism, not meta exactly but apropos
white people are so fucking fortunate and lucky when a person of color helps explain why their actions are racist, and how they can avoid repeating the problem again in the future
yet 90% of times white people are too ignorant to realize what a blessing they're receiving
