    The 8th Death of 2020

    True but with a worldwide pandemic the like of which hasn't been seen for 100 years and that has just put our PM in intensive care, plus pretty much all of the list having "underlying conditions" you're saying you require that option? Ok, I'll see your no more deaths and raise you any two on the same day and a big row and much obit checking over which was technically first and thus the 8th.
  2. No emoji to give you the finger TQR, had to settle for a grin.

    Go on - Show Us Your Warnings.....

    It is a bit curious indeed, we bang on about death constantly, but the act that brings life....not so much please. Though obviously only the vagina part of that has much chance the other two far more hit and miss.

    I may have seen a better candidate for the abbreviation tl:dr but I'm damned if i can recall it.

    Oh but we do. Our Deathers is a fucking institution. Nobody does it better.

    And no time soon are 3 unused palaces going to be used as temporary hospitals. I mean, they are bound to be a good bit cleaner than your average hospital what with all the cleaning staff. A footman as a hospital porter... Don't get me wrong I think Liz does a fantastic job and had zero choice about her life, but the whole thing in principle is anachronistic. We need Charlie "Covid? I laugh it off" boy, get a republic soon enough.

    John Prine

    I don't know any Prines and I'm fast becoming proud of it, .... or indeed primes which is a stupid game people good with numbers play. I am happy to report I care equally about primes and prines. i.e. not much. Chef. ha fair point, it may well have been that.

    Dream on. Remind me is tinder the straight or gay one? It's straight from your original heading isn't it? Well, the one I remember when I thought it was Lenny Henry or somebody and you had to tell me it was Ainsley....

    TLDR: yes, but who is he?

    This crusade brought to you from deepest Essex. A current bugbear for our Basildon meat rubber. However, bloody right too, you ain't nobody without one.

    I still don't know who John Prine is btw. No, I'm not looking it up on gargle, that's a cop out. And I'm a lot older than you Deathers, so it's not just that you're too young.

    Don't worry about it. Some around here won't give you the time of day unless you've been signed up since 1895. However my view (and it may just be my view) is that being new isn't a handicap. Hmm, ok, thinking longer (15 whole seconds) it IS a handicap, but one that can be overcome with diligent posting and due deference to those who've been around since the ark (i.e. signed up sometime before 2020).

    You'd need to be A: about 20 or 30 years older than you are to even have a clue . B: probably American. It's that whole arse end of the sixties Woodstock thing. Which for the unintiated doesn't refer to the place near Oxford.

    Aside from as a place on the southern coast of Louisiana that I felt a bit uncomfortable driving through some time before it was mostly blown away by a hurricane? No. no, because at 1 above no. Basically fed up with this place getting all American again. Sort your own damn board. Stroppy? Moi? Sancerre, I'm not used to it.

    You don't even have to be particularly regular here to know "your" angry tone Deathers. It's one of the few reasons I check in occasionally

    You can like or dislike their public persona, exactly the same as with any famous person. Some people who are absolute shits in real life are very good at PR (or pay somebody else to be), some people who are extraordinarily nice in real life are just terrible at PR and say the wrong thing at the wrong time every time even with the best intentions. Mind you, Max Clifford who was a PR guru turned out to be a complete cunt, who'd have guessed? Robbie Savage who comes across as a Porsche driving football dickhead donates thousands to charity, quietly. You can't tell in the end. Only go on what you know.
  21. Britannia Hotels Administrative error? "Oops we didn't mean to sack you and make you homeless overnight, it was meant to be a check on your NI number...." Utter bullshit, should read "Oops massive PR disaster back-pedal fast. Now."

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    I read that as over 70 and pregnant and thought well that can't be a huge demographic group regardless of advances in IVF. Note to self: read more carefully.
