  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    These aren't assertions, only questions. I agree that a regular seasonal flu can't locally overwhelm a health service however it is organised- though novel flu strains have that potential? The key difference with the previous betacoronavirus is that it is...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    My interpretation was from https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/coronavirus/coronavirus-disease-2019-vs-the-flu The senior director of infection prevention explains the similarities and differences. I searched Johns Hopkins as it had just been cited....
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    While Tinky Winky 2 flu is technically not a flu, it is a respiratory virus which co-circulates with flu. It has the same symptoms as flu, it is transmitted like flu, it is treated like flu, it is prevented like...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Tinky Winky 2 flu seems to be a nasty flu where the worst element is more potent than usual. However I don't anticipate it to be more than twice as lethal than any other seasonal flu, if that. A science...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Difficult to budget the high window, with two cases of goods in a hotel room. Guess what I found behind Jupiter, the warrior causing the deflection. LA Noire, guess we'll get past Eden....

    Al Boum Photo won the Gold Cup again 'Its so cruel, using a dead person's name to cheat you' Grawler a beggar, from Rath, prosperity. Will Tinky Winky 2 make The Big Forty? Confirmation bias, safety first. Teeth and ears...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Hic Rhodus hic saltus Cheltenham to go ahead, despite one confirmed case of flu. 280,000 over four days to back our native flu. Also Wales v Scotland. Zaparosti! On to April 4th. The air taser X2 Defender has had trouble...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    As vadd di can caghèr di viulén with the inflections, without the error. It is translated though? A short approximate literal translation might be that football crowds have their own methods of dealing with fantastic dragons, unless they use Ouija...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    'Tra I modi di dire felsinei, il nostro preferito era sempre stato "As vadd di can cagher de viulen"' Turing Test and Tinky Winky 2 Test. A Wired article from 2013 claimed the fraction of the famous English-speaking people in...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Every new lie of advertising is an avowal of the previous lie. My Storm Wuhan project failed its first simple test, as expected. It seems that Wuhan was the Three Towns of Wuhan- Wuchang, Hankou and Hanyang. Wuhan 'different every...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    I wanted to back the seasonal flu against Tinky Winky 2 flu, however there doesn't seem to be a bookmaker willing to compile the odds. The best that can be done is 1/4 on the Cheltenham Festival, or you could...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Tinky Winky 2, Simon Barnes, died of hypothermia in Liverpool in 2018. He was 52. The actor was the replacement for the original Teletubby, Dave Thompson, removed after the first series because his interpretation of the role was unacceptable. It...
  • Commented on A serious question
    If your werewolf were to go there, Saturn has Janus and Epimetheus, moons which exchange orbits- aren't astronomers cruel? Saturn might be too lycanthrope-friendly for science, though? There's an antimoon story which places a penal colony at L2 for enthusiastic...
  • Commented on A serious question
    The wolfsbane reference is from earlier in the discussion, it was observed that as wolfsbane was claimed to be a cure for lycanthropy, its bloom would be an odd signal for the appearance of the curse. There was a medical...
  • Commented on A serious question
    If you want to highlight the potential of the moon missions as an extension of the surveillance state, astronaut-werewolves proved able to withstand however many degrees of moonlight as were necessary. Michael Collins became explicitly a symbol of American power,...
  • Commented on A serious question
    Never, because three astronauts isn't sufficient to trigger a werewolf, the other absent conditions aside. The largest crew in space according to Wiki was STS-61-A, the last successful launch of Challenger, with eight crew. The German astronaut Reinhard Furrer was...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    A version of The Apprentice except without private companies. All your friends are on a train and you have to decide how naughty you are prepared to be to get them safely to their destination....
  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    [[ gibberish dropped - mod ]] So how about self-determination for Hong Kong? Anyone who believes in one principle for the Falklands and another for Hong Kong is a fool and a fool for Owen and psychiatry, which means...
  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    Greg Tingey- now there's an appropriate name for the chasm between London Labour and the Leave voters. What is old Labour though, presumably not Blairite Labour? Stonehouse era Labour? All the way back to Attlee's post-Beveridge Labour? It is difficult...
  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    'Sir' Alan Campbell won again, so Tynemouth is still Labour. Ken Mackintosh, murdered on April 30th 1989, on Windsor Road Monkseaton, will have to wait longer to be in peace. I went to a lecture once where the subject was...

    The murderous scum have lost Blyth Valley! Tynemouth result to come. Chi Onwurah's result has come in, stationed next to the Tyne Bridge. Chi, twenty-two. Fewer kids psychotically driven to their deaths for you Chi! The process of dismantling the...
  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    Labour played the Ashworth card, how about some banter? Ashworth Hospital played a role in the 1997 transition to Blair, who took over in the middle of the 'groomed for abuse' Fallon Inquiry, which found no crimes to have been...
  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    The Shadow Health Secretary must have been aware that the Labour campaign was based on the dramatisation of the health crisis caused by Conservative mismanagement and on detailed accusations that the NHS is to be sold to the Republicans. His...
  • Commented on Creative writing challenge!
    Guiliani's wiki claims he supported the 'broken windows' theory of urban decay, that minor disorders create a permissive atmosphere, though he must have reached that conclusion from his experience of posing in a leather jacket after a failed undercover drug...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    The referendum result with only a minority in favour of EU exit was insufficient to justify the withdrawal application. If the House has a majority it could vote to withdraw the application, this would spare the other EU states from...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Blair's Supreme Court reminds me of the 'you have been supplied with a false idol speech' someone who claims that he can't be judged on international genocide because the relevant court wasn't sitting is no-one I want to design a...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    I once imagined a Star Wars 7 where the new Jedi attempted to interfere with a series of violent power struggles among former Republic politicians, with a tell on each conflict. At the end the final winner was to make...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    The 'light touch' as justified by J. Fraudron Brown in 2005: 'The better, and in my opinion the correct, modern model of regulation- the risk based approach- is based on trust in the responsible company, the engaged employee and the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    I'm not sure that 'backstop' left financial regulation in a satisfactory situation, or that the Munich Agreement left Czechoslovakia in a satisfactory situation. However what seems more likely is that discussion of 'backstop' is 95% junk, like a defensible position...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Does anyone else have that Etoro ad pop up before the clips of The Big Short? Is 'mindless trading' legal to advertise? Steve Eisman doesn't seem much like Steve Carell's portrayal of him, there's an EU exit interview where he...
