COVID 19 - Second Wave

Recommended Posts

1% of folk think key workers travelling to work isn't a reasonable excuse to leave the house

3% don't know on the same question. 

 

Same numbers think the vulnerable should just go hungry. 

 

Where do they find these folks?

Leaving 96% of folk who just think it's late and deathers should probably pack it in and go to to bed.

 

I still think nobody should leave the room they are currently in for 14 days. Bye virus.

deathers? Who the heck is he? 

 

Also there's a major flaw in your logic.

Oh cmon admins, we were just getting started, I'll have to find an Old Crem or Iain post to take the piss out of now.

It's getting desperately hard to find any joy here lately.

 

*Yes yes, I know, I know. I do know why, and in mods shoes I'd have to do the same.

Thankfully here, I'm not.

I wouldn’t!

 

My understanding is that the porn (yes, and the breach of trust, I get it) was the problem. So just remove his ability to attach files and it can’t happen again. And if that won’t do, there’s mod preview. Can’t be more effort than having to ban several new aliases a week, can it? Hell, I’d be willing to fucking do it myself.
 

Look, I do respect the mods and understand their position on this but, as far as I can see, virtually none of us (I’m willing to be corrected if I’m wrong) would be annoyed/upset by his return.

 

Sometimes you’ve just got to look at what’s been allowed to stay to wonder why it’s worth going to all this effort to keep one mostly entertaining mischief-maker out.

You're still sore cause you didn't get the mail (nor did I come to that) :P.

I've said it multiple times, I'd like deathers back. And if what TQR suggests is possible on this software, sure, I'm voting for that too.

 

All I'm saying above is that I've been a mod elsewhere (no, I didn't have a scooter with 50 mirrors on it), and it's all too easy to have a go at them for doing what can occasionally be a difficult and frustrating (oh, and thankless) job.

Approached as the three of us have? Not so bad, but not all are as enlightened nor as overwhelmingly intelligent, suave, sophisticated and downright wonderful as this present exalted company.

How many would be sexually aroused by his return ? That's the real question!

Isn't it almost worse? Hospitals are filled, lots of deaths and new cases. Feel like we're getting so used to Covid-19 deaths that it's doesn't rile us up like it did back in March. 

I guess so, yeah. I get that Covid fatigue has set in, but the inability of people to follow one simple rule does my head in. Just now I had to go to a small shop to get some coffee and milk and in the space of 60 seconds two fuckwits came in (separately) without masks on. How can it be so hard for these people? 

 

Looks as if we're going to finish fourth in the world for cases - shortly to pass Russia - and fifth for deaths. We're a small, densely populated island - we never had the advantages afforded to those smug New Zealanders - but it's not good is it. It's only that Mexico is still consistently registering over 1000 deaths a day that stops us getting close to them. I hope we're nearing the peak,  but 1500 by middle of next week wouldn't come as a surprise.

There are two groups of 'these people', the second of which annoys me more.
Sure, the dolts that arrive and enter an establishment with no masks or pointlessly inappropriately worn ones.  They are annoying.
But much MUCH worse are the other people: THE STORE OWNERS.  THROW THE FUCKERS OUT when they walk in like that.  It's a goddam shame owners and managers and employees are so gutless to point at the door and say get the fuck out.  They are 1000x worse because they are enablers.

They do.  This happened in the village shop this week, and on being told to leave one of the little fuckers spat on the windows.

The Hacking Trust - remember the name. I think we will see a bit more of this going on and I'd like to think that our government will pass legislation pretty quickly so that anyone engaging in this appalling practice get banged up for some time as a deterrent to others.

Mexico has posted another daily record for newly confirmed coronavirus cases, with 16,105 new infections reported Saturday, and a near-record of 1,135 deaths related to COVID-19 in the latest 24-hour period.

At this rate more people in Mexico will die of covid19 than the Mexican drug war. Feel sorry for the everyday Mexicans just trying to live their lives.

Bets on reaching 2000/day within the week?

Tuesday is the day to watch - relatively low recording of deaths over the weekend leads to slightly lower figures on Sunday and Monday - Tuesday brings the big 'spike.' I'm going with 1,730 for tomorrow. Anyone think they can get closer?

Cerberus I believe you are trying to invent a game that has already been invented - try here for some merciless sick fun.

If want nice comparison. Hospital trust I work for has had double the amount of inpatients with Covid compared to first wave. We are talking 200+ now in each A&E hospital.

 

In good news I had second vaccine on Friday and now they announced that due to shortage of vaccines, people waiting for second dose have to wait 10-12 weeks rather than 3. So i'm very lucky.

Clutching at Straws Dept: I watch the local news every evening (Kent and Sussex) and six of the 26 council areas are down on new cases from yesterday. That could be a weekend lag though.

Have you had any side effects? Here in Norway almost no one has gotten it yet. Hope you are ok!

No.10 rebuffs calls for 24-hour vaccines, claiming there isn’t a clamour for appointments after 8pm.

 

They can honestly smash their way into my house at 3am and pipe the vaccine into my arsehole for all I care.

 

So far I’ve not found a single example of someone saying “meh, I would have the vaccine, but not too late”. It’s horse shit.

This DL website has a grand total of one person who has been to both the U.S. and U.K. during the pandemic: Sir Creep.  Twice in fact.  So anyone expressing an opinion comparing the two countries handling of COVID not named Sir Creep speaks from a position of ignorance.  


And with that, SirC chuckles at the audacity of the U.K. chucklebutts who point at the Yanks ‘oh they bad and don’t do what needs doin’ (true enough) while ignoring some home grown foolery.  Mr Creep can assure you that his visits to Morrisons shew numerous folks prancing around maskless, and/or incorrectly wearing the thing as a decoration for their protruding proboscii, and sadly that includes a number of employees/team leaders.  It was as bad as any store you want to point to across The Pond.  As with every store anywhere, SirC blames management.

 

So it is with a raised eyebrow  that he posts this headline — one stating that Morrisons will ‘enforce’ the wearing of masks.  Not sure what that means though.  Is there going to be a change in management?  Because it’s shewn existing leadership hasn’t a fucking clue.  Is the enforcement going to apply to employees?  Will they get sacked?  Will enforcement include shewing people how to wear it correctly?  Will it include banishing neck gators which are proven to INCREASE the threat of COVID?  Will they shew customers with full trolleys the door who aren’t complying?  Is there a zero tolerance policy or do they get a warning and who keeps track of warnings?  Just what does this all mean?


So let’s record this on 12/1/21: SirC is calling bullshit - without answers to these questions and training or overhauling existing management it’s all a charade and a birdcage liner headline.

 

(FTR at Sainsbury’s, SirC never saw a violation worth noting.)

Yes, because the rest of us are all sensible, responsible and considerate.
