    No real confirmation from major western outlets yet, which is strange considering you'd think the NYT (or others) would have an obit ready if this was true...

    It's not exactly a breaking news worthy moment for the average person. Consider it is 1am EST as well. It'll come out in a few hours if true.

    You're definitely a child. Why can't you just act like an adult for once?


    You haven't posted anything of value to this discussion other than a flowchart that you probably stole from someone else.

    Hey. That flowchart was a work of art.

  3. As with every crisis, the powers that be (government) did what they thought was best at the time. The vaccine was a extreme reaction to the extreme situation. Obviously, no-one wants to rush a vaccine that millions of people are going to get. As of Sept. 2021, 64% of the world had this vaccine. It is likely that a small portion of that percentage had reactions, possibly fatal, to the vaccine. Just as with every vaccine. It seems undeniable that the vaccine saved lives, far more than it cost. As others have said, COVID-19 (which was likely not a natural strain) is a deadly disease. It makes sense that the wild strain would be more dangerous, especially with uncontrolled mutations. The vaccine was necessary, vital, and it is sad that so many will never appreciate it.


    @the_engineer you've been gone for long enough I'd thought maybe something had changed. It's sad that it didn't.

  4. @RoverAndOut I agree with you.


    I am a fan of Friends and Matthew Perry. An actor/actress should be honored from a POV of notable works/fame. If they have a place in Theater + Film + Television, that's a lot of remembrance. Matthew Perry didn't make any notable films and his television resume extends to other shows such as West Wing + The Odd Couple.


    People are just sensitive because the death is still raw.

    Seiji Ozawa has passed the baton for good at the age of 88. The japanese conductor had been suffering from Alzheimer's for a while now and looked very diminished in some final pictures a couple of months ago. He was an eminent conductor after a rugby iinjury to his finger destroyed his dreams of becoming a pianist. He was a lover of 20th century classical music, you know, the weird, difficult kind. Three teams score but the lead changes nowhere (after accounting for tie-breakers).

    I note Seiji Ozawa was a hit back on Feb 6th.  Not for me though.

    This is all new information. So what we know now is that, on top of being bedridden, confused, and lonely, he doesn't eat or drink normally and is generally uncommunicative. How they can spin this as him being "fine" would make even the likes of Alastair Campbell blush.

    Who cares? There is nothing new to report on this man till he dies or is hospitalized.

    With deep and utmost respect, could you please piss clean off of these forums and take The Old Crem, Kenny and Bon Scott with you on your travels? Thanks respectfully.

    Bon Scott? I've missed that one. Someone to add to the block list?

    And the Democrats still want to nominate him? There must be a reason they are happy to keep this guy in power, but I’m not sure what it is. What is he going to be like in four years time?

    He has a proven track record of beating Trump.

    Is it possible for you to take in a differing political opinion without getting so triggered by it? TOC has said nothing wrong in that post. He's welcome to an opinion on an election in another country – that's called "foreign affairs". I think it's you that needs to chill out, and if reading things you disagree with upsets you so much then don't open the concerned topic, mark it as read, then move on.

    You are defending TOC. That's really all that needs to be said.


    When he has an informed, rational opinion I'll give him one in turn.

    I think today is the day Trump secured his victory and it probably won’t even be close.


    Even with Trump himself clearly losing his mind as welll.

    Keep your uninformed opinions to UK politics please.

    Surely even the most ardent Trump hater must admit Biden doesn’t have the cognitive/mental powers to be president even now let alone for another 4 years, saying Biden mentally unfit to be president doesn’t make someone a Trump cheerleader

    I disagree.

    Why are helicopters still so well used.. So many notable deaths caused by crashes.  I suspect eventually they will be banned except for emergency and military use. 

    This might be one of the first logical things you have said.


    Here's another first: I agree with you!
