  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    On another note, the Roman Catholic church is not going to do Easter in churches this year, at least in Germany. Let's just say effects should be interesting from a canon law perspective, for example there is a correlation between...
  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    Though most of the papers are more concerned with the mode of entry through ACE2, from the look of it. Resistance should be funny with those protease inhibitors; they act on host enzymes, so little evolution on this site; only...
  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    The paper on camostat is here: SARS-CoV-2 Cell Entry Depends on ACE2 and TMPRSS2 and Is Blocked by a Clinically Proven Protease Inhibitor. There is an interview (in German) in Spiegel with some of the scientists involved, apparantly one problem...
  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    I was driving around the Aasee on my bike after work yesterday, strange thing is, there are few people in the cities, but people still go for the usual suspects for excursions, e.g. lakes and parks; the density of joggers...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Err, it's one of my memories from my teens, we even watched it in biology class in school when there was nothing else to do IIRC. It's somewhat hammy, but I used the cinema scene to explain to my cousin...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    hmk, they both -eat lots of meat, the more fat, the better -have a rural flair -wear big strange looking hats and lots of leather -expose a law and order mentality, but 90% of their local heroes are bandits or...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    I remebered the stones from English class in school. Sadly, they didn't work that well because Yersinia pestis goes by vector, e. g. fleas and rats......
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Actually, this interpretation doesn't make much sense; younger infected will not feel that sick, might show no symptoms at all and meet more people, e.g. they pass the virus much more; AFAIK the population in Italy is somewhat older than...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    I'm on the record of saying I wished the mortality in some demographics was somewhat higher; I'm covering my bases and answered an ad for medical and care jobs by another temporary employment agency; everybody is only doing telephone interviews,...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    There have been some discussions if a lockdown like in Italy would be possible with German law. It seems not. Personally, I guess the relatively low number of deaths means we caught it early. Let's see how it plays out,...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Er, actually I sometimes wonder if I'm normal after all. Though I'd prefer ReGenesis for binge-watching. (Err, I sometimes wonder how much of the social and cognitive deficits you see in autism, schizophrenia and like are due to social isolation)...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Err, one last thing, anybody already put up a VASSAL server https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vassal_Engine with Pandemic? http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/Module:Pandemic And today I wondered to a guy 2 metres away when German TV would rerun Outbreak. He laughed... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outbreak_(film) Err, did I mention I guess...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Hm, that should fix it. One strange effect of much of the usual white social noise dieing down (I'm not sure how Germany relates to other Western countries, BTW) is the remaining contacts being somewhat more, err, salient. No idea...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Err, shit, I forgot this one; as usual, Bavaria is overdoing it somewhat, they implemented a mandatory lockdown, at least as much as German law permits: https://www.bavaria.by/information-coronavirus/ I guess it was OGH who said Bavarians are somewhat like Texans, so...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Err, actually Germany doing well might have something to do with the country being in semi-voluntary lockdown. The regional trains are quite empty, which is one of the reasons some regional trains are going every hour instead of every 30...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    While driving by I noticed the local growstore got a big delivery of plant substrate, guess this is going to be one of the countercyclical stocks[1] ATM. Not that we need much homegrowing, the Dutch border is quite close. [1]...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Charleā€™s blog is apparently social media according to NHS practitioners? Err, I guess it is more concerned with articles like this (with apologies for linking to the Sun, may it serve to edify the righteous and amuse the jaded cynics...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    I mentioned Avenue 5 already, so I hope nobody minds if I post this video: "Where did you get the 1% ?" "I was trying to be nuanced." "Nuanced? Well, I think you just NUANCED them to death."...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Err, shit, I forgot to add this reference about ACE2 in type II diabetes....
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Apparently ACE2 ist also somewhat implicated in the old SARS-COV, and there has been some research into it. Going by the research, kininase II or whatever, AKA ACE, the target of the whatever-pril ACE inhibitors beloved to hypertensives all over...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    For somewhat selfish reasons, I hope the worst will be over till the middle of May; KMFDM are playing in Krefeld, and I got a ticket. On another note, problem is I likely have to go out at the moment;...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    I have been thinking about linking to this video for some time, though... This song is about Donald Rumsfeld meeting karmic (and secular) justice. Given the Delirium Tremens' stance on landmines, add the Donald of your choice for a minestomping...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    Well, there are cyborg jellyfish around... Please note the Whoniverse became a thing in Germany only recently, though I still remember "Ghostlight" from some xable station trying to introduce it in the 90s......
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    There are conflicting accounts stating Mulder has a Jewish background, we might put this through to casting to trigger[1] parts of the audience. Hm come to think about it, could the female lead be played by Joanna Angel? As for...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    Since we're somewhat past the 300 and 1000 postings mark, I might as well wish everybody a happy "Year of the Metal Rat", just coming from the local Vietnamese celebrating. Err, let's just say the French hav a hand at...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Though actually, that might be a case of "note my exact words". The talks mentioned mainly deal with NATO presence in Germany, where AFAIK no new bases in Eastern Germany were established: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_Army_installations_in_Germany (We could argue if they simply misunderstood...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Actually the version with "Lattenzaun" is a poem by Christian Morgenstern. Which makes for memories of Mhairi/Freya's ex, actually the friend I met at my last working place, he was a fan of Morgenstern, one of his more positive attributes....
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    I don't mind the spelling, actually mine is worse at the moment (di I mention I'm somewhat exhausted?). Are you sure ist was "Lattenzaum" vs. "Lattenzaun" and "hindurchzuschaum" vs. "hindurchzuschaun" though? Not that sure, the latter ones are correct in...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    I don't know if I want to rant or scream. Hm, actually I usually do both at the same time when in the mood, but we might differ. ;) they explained to us that there were three *classes* of drugs...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Well, there is a German saying "zum Lachen in den Keller gehen" ("to go into the cellar for laughing") for somebody lacking in humour[1], thing is, the office literally is in the cellar of a savings bank[2], and we're the...
