    Yes, I do hope he's OK.

    Buzz Aldrin

    As Harry said, there is a thread for Astronauts which is perfectly adequate for any news that might arise about Buzz Aldrin. In general, people only merit a dedicated thread of their own if they are regularly newsworthy or controversial in some way. Most others fit into existing topics.

    Buzz Aldrin

    Do not make threads for people just because they aren't on this list Everyone who is, or has ever been, on the Deathlist has their own thread. It is a convention of the site. If a new entrant does not already have a thread, Grim Reaper opens one for them.

    And the very first sentence on that thread is: Do not make threads for people just because they aren't on this list

    The World of the Snowflake

    I don't like the recent misappropriation of the word "cancelled", but I'll take it to the English Language thread - later on though as I don't have time just now.

    The World of the Snowflake

    I'm going to be cancelled next month. I must have answered one wrong.

    Sarah Harding

    That's not new news though, is it? I'm thinking all of these "updates" are just teasers for her book.

    Dia! Good to see you. Don't be a stranger.

    Covid 19 ------- Third wave?

    I still don't understand why nobody is asking for or publishing stats on blood clot incidents following the other vaccines. If they follow the UK pattern, they should be about the same.

    I just think that using a person's race and/or age against them as an insult is unacceptable. Whatever their age or race.

    I think you mean 'derogatory'. A bit like the way certain people use 'middle aged' and 'white'.

    Covid 19 ------- Third wave?

    I'm even more cynical. The Oxford AZ vaccine has been continually and deliberately trashed right left & centre. I suspect there are vested interests behind this. Could the fact that it's being made available on a non-profit basis have anything to do with it? Surely not

    Crashing Companies

    I was bemused but grateful to find a WH Smith open on 3rd January as I had neglected to buy a birthday present so was able to nip in and get a book token (safe choice for person concerned). But it wasn't one with a Post Office, hence my bemusement. I couldn't think of any reason why they would be "essential".

    I think they find it "uncomfortable" because she isn't 100% white. If she was, the woke brigade wouldn't give a flying fig. It's the new racism.

    Covid 19 ------- Third wave?

    This thread is in German, but it seems to show that that far from the AZ vaccine causing concern about blood clots, more people have experienced them after having the Pfizer vaccine. The numbers in any case are small and lower than what might be expected on average, so one has to wonder why there is so much worrymongering going on, and more importantly, why AstraZeneca is the only one targeted.

    I'm long out of grandmas, so yeah.

    Yep, this is my philosophy.

    The World of the Snowflake

    They were told not to gather there at that time. I agree with torbrexbones that some probably went to deliberately bait the police, but I think that for a lot of people it was an excuse to get out and do a bit of social mingling. I personally don't see the point of going there "to pay respects" anyway, you can do that anywhere. A "vigil" is for family and friends to organise if they so wish, not Rentamob.

    I think there can be no doubt that they were the reason for Philip summoning Charles to his bedside. There, back on topic.

    No, indeed, I can see that.
