    Any proof for this, or is it simply rumor and supposition? My reading is that it's pure anecdote - Foxessa goes outside, looks round, then reports what she sees. I'm very much on the side of the theorists here, I...

    Someone suggested this link the other day, possibly not here, but it's an interesting read about how Trump has kicked the decline of the US as a world power into sharp relief. https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2020/06/america-image-power-trump/613228/ Although stuff like this always make me...

    In Australia puffer jackets are a bit of a fashion thing in certain non-snowsport circles. Round Sydney we see some people rugged up as nigh on Antarctic mission dress when the temperature gets below about 15 degrees. The Kenyan nurses...

    This one is hilarious - it's a chunk literally in the middle of a reserve, more than 20km from the nearest accessible road, and I very much doubt you're going to get a building permit for it. But... it's for...

    Oh, and I've been looking at cheap rural properties within wired internet distance of train stations. Boss doesn't want me moving to Aotearoa... they have fibre to just about every premises and it's cheaper than Australia's "fibre to the neighbourhood"...

    the primary focus should be on minimizing sharing of unfiltered recently-exhaled air. I agree. Sadly my team members have to attend the office for a face to face meeting on Monday. It's expected to be 4+ hours with 4-5...

    Since your eyes also have those delicious mucus membranes the medical professionals have long been (trying to) shield them.

    Oops, thanks. And yes, disagreement about what's the right thing is another of the many problems with that particular bit of stupidity. Another big one is that a l;ot of people *can't* do the right thing - for example "stay...

    Yeah. It ties in nicely with the "what work is actually essential" question, although it seems increasingly likely that unless you actually lick a recently-smeared surface you're vanishingly unlikely to get infected with the current pandemic. Still, I'm going to...
