  1. Past hour
  2. You are only guessing that way because it suits your anti Tory beliefs.
  3. I think if you consider the net effect humanity as a whole, is having on the planet, there's not much positive about it. I suspect the planet would be a lot better off without us (or at least, with far fewer of us).
  4. This is the crux of the entire argument over Covid. In the end, none of us can avoid death. Many people think that the reaction to Covid has been way over the top, and the figures support this. However others believe that the government can prevent them dying. It can't. Nobody can. It may be able to mitigate the effects with timely actions. It's a bit like never going outside in case you get run over by a car. You have to weigh up what you're losing and balance it against what you're gaining. Road accidents are reduced, you won't die in one, but is it worth losing the freedom to go outside? The government / media have hyped this up to the max and arguably done more damage with lockdowns etc than the pandemic itself. However, personally I have been quite sanguine about the efficacy of the vaccine and been happy to have it, but that doesn't mean it should be mandatory either through coercion or force. There's no doubt in my mind that governments like controlling their populations, it makes their lives much easier, and fear does control. The jury is still out on whether this is an exercise to see how far they can push them or simply an overreaction borne of inexperience.
  5. You need a usb wireless adapter (not an internal wifi card, or a powerline adapter). Curry's sell them from £6.99 upwards.
  6. I used to be addicted to the Hokey Cokey, But I’ve turned myself around, And that’s what it’s all about !
  7. Since they have closed the general Covid thread I will have to ask this question on here : My mother in law is in care home. She has now been triple vaccinated (plus I would bet money she had Covid in April 2020) Any visitors she has have to test themselves thirty minutes before and register the result ion the govt website, then, when they get there everyone has to wear masks, gloves (I think)and aprons. Bearing in mind, as I said, they have all been triple vaccinated (and most of the residents had Covid in April 2020) and therefore will never be more immune than they are now, why is this necessary ? And, bearing in mind we will never get rid of Covid, how long will this madness go on for ? What will change ? It should all have ended in about last April when they'd vaccinated 15,000,000 with at least two doses. And I really do mean All of it, no masks, no travel restrictions, nothing at all, back to the old normal. But the problem is, as we get safer from Covid, all that happens is people's risk aversion (not mine I hasten to add) just goes up another notch. The fact is that if, back in March 2020, the death rate from Covid had been what it is now NONE OF THIS WOULD BE HAPPENING, that is an indisputable fact. It is very very worrying..... "End of April" (when 15 million had been double vaccinated and 34 million had had at least one dose.....)
  8. Glad you liked it, thanks for your reply but you can't beat on the pitch comedy, I'm sure someone will be scouring for one to match it as we post, probably Henderson's blunder. It's all good banter until the dummy spitters join in.
  9. This time of year used to be for the half season tickets.
  10. When my son, who lives and works in America tells his American friends that he originally comes from Sheffield, England, they ask him “ Oh, is that between London and Scotland ?”
  11. Excellent idea for a thread. I saw that one live though, so I'll skip it and offer you this:
  12. I'm going to stump up for ours. Mostly because it will be about £50 a ticket saved. It's a curious carry on though.
  13. Time Left: 6 days and 23 hours

    Vintage Barrington masters squash racket with original cover. Jonah Barrington on the handle. in very good condition. not used for ages.


  14. Money most likely changed hands before, just not directly to the victims
  15. A private citizen, which is all the the employee of the car park would be, would not be able to enforce any law. That said during the hours of operation the car park would be considered accessible by the general public therefore is covered under the various laws governing the use of public roads, such as the Road Traffic Act etc.

  17. The early bird bets the worm, but I prefer a meat pie myself.
  18. Hello all, It would seem i'm not the only one thinking what happened to Tracklogs? Google searches led me here and having read the forum i guess i should cut to the chase and ask if Temuchin could help me out? I have a V2 install but not the latest V3, any OS25 mapping would also be helpful, i do have quite a few .pkg files for V2 and V3 so happy to contribute to anyone's library if required. Anyway hoping Temuchin can help me with the install for starters? Thanks Chris
  19. An effective vaccine would have ended the thing months ago, remember the "15m vaccines to freedom" claim.
  20. A lot has changed in the years since Spanish flu. When Spanish flu struck the pattern of mortality was very different. World War I was causing catastrophic loss of life though its end, at least on the Western Front, was clearly in view. Smallpox and polio were rife. Child mortality was horrific to the extent that life expectancy at birth in Britain was under 55 years and nowhere in the World was it over 65 years. Most of the World's population lived in abject poverty and suffered from what we would consider to be chronic malnutrition as exhibited by the increase in adult height. Relative to the other problems societies faced, Spanish flu in its day might well have been a smaller issue than covid is now. It also has to be borne in mind that the covid pandemic is not over yet so we do not have the full bill yet. Finally, in making any comparison, we should bear in mind that when we count the health cost of covid it is the cost of a heavily mitigated epidemic. We have had the choice to mitigate covid's impact a lot more effectively than was available to those who faced Spanish flu. A couple of last points in reference to the 'once in a hundred years' theme: 1. We have had other serious, non-pandemic, contagious diseases (eg smallpox, polio, malaria, measles) to contend with ... their impact has been falling. 2. HIV/ AIDS, another pandemic in the last fifty years, has killed more people than covid albeit over a protracted period.
  21. @top4718Why highlight “effective vaccines” when it is these that have had a major part in government use of fewer lockdowns?
  22. 😂😁😂😝.Sheffield Wednesday v Hartlepool United highlights - YouTube
  23. I've spotted a flaw in your statement. SAGE's modelling which has led to ridiculous lockdowns because of their predictions of doom and gloom is sheer incompetence at any level.
