  • Commented on Cough Cough
    [ COMMENT DELETED, COMMENTER BANNED ] Don't go advocating ditching public health measures in the middle of a pandemic just because keeping people from dying in windrows will hurt the little tin god of the economy. And especially don't do...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Low tech ways are good, they don't assalt people's liberties, they don't bring societies crashing down. They blend into the background and do the unglamourous work which politicians consider too dreary to be talekd about. We should be glad that...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Oops, I just responded to you thinking you had commented on my point about tests with a few hours to give a result rather than immediate. My last comment was very much about tests which can test infectivity this second...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    There's no practical way you can run a world in which every person is tested before every social interaction, and even if you could it wouldn't be worth it. We need measures to reduce the dangers of the virus while...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    "Right now" might not be so vital, within a few hours would be good enough if the test is cheap and reusable. Everyone could have one at home and test once a day, that way there would at maximum be...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    We pretty much know it is not like the second option, there have been suspected instances of people who got it twice, not quite proven. But what they got the second time was less severe than the first time. Right...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Why wouldn't they want to appear next to COVID-19, everyone is reading about it, more people would see their ads. And if they're advertising face masks, hand sanitiser, work from home tools,... it's an even better pace for their ads...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Would jump at the chance to wear a facemask if that could help end the lockdown. In the UK we could perhaps use a law requiring all buildings to have openable windows for ventilation rather than ghastly disease-spreading air-con systems,...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Whatever happens we need that freight, transported cargo is what keeps people alive, infrastructure maintained and businesses running. With borders with few people crossing but plenty of freight we can sustain an existance of some level, imagine the damage brexit...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Arguably a test for anti-bodies to detect previous exposure might be more useful than an anti-gen test for current contagion. Would let them find out whether the virus has spread a lot more then believed, arguably a good thing as...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Part of me wonders whether hospitals, not shops, workplaces or parks, are going to be the major transmission route. It seems a lot of NHS staff are getting it, proportionally far more than any other sector of the population, and...
  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    Deaths would be a little higher with unchecked spread, ad health services couldn't keep up and hence cases which presently can be cured by medical intervention would become fatal, the 2% death rate would be increased to some (hard to...
  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    Actually, if I were looking for crew for a ship on which to ride out the pandemic I wouldn't be looking to those without the virus. I'd be finding people who had already had it, then recruiting them to start...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    Shouldn't JAXA (the Japanese space agency) be judging that too, they've pulled off some pretty impressive work with both the IKAROS sola sail craft and the recent asteroid lander....
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    Or have another where the CEO of intel has to try getting rid of the IME/AMT management engine from his PC's CPU, the CEO of microsoft has to try fitting a new battery in a surfacebook, the CEO of apple...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    They actually did this, the BBC did it, sort of, in 2017 autumn. They took a bunch of scientists, engineers and explorers and had them put through some mock exercises involving some visits to a few of the actual training...
