EDIT -- "Who wants it" -- Obviously with no obligation to me, since I'm publishing it on a public forum. So I just saw the very cute "Human Kindness" commercial on TV again, where the Dad sees his son with respiratory issues having trouble blowing out the candle on his 1 y/o birthday cake. The Dad goes and gets a straw to help the kid blow out the candle. Very nice. But it reminded me of how bad the tradition of blowing out candles on birthday cakes is from a healtcare perspective. The last thing you want to have happen before you eat something is to have somebody blow all over it. Jeeze, especially a little kid (AKA "Germ Factory"). So putting the two things together, how about somebody markets straws in the birthday cake section of the supermarket that have N95 filters in them? The birthday person still gets to blow out the candles, and the "Germ Factory" consideration goes away. Let's see how good the lung function is on us older folks blowing out our candles! Remember the lung function test from the great movie "The Right Stuff"?
