  1. https://uk.mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUKKBN234067 Tell you what, how does the song go? "You say tomoto & I'll say pedantic, let's call the whole thing off." As for you not understanding? No need to apologise but I can't really help you with that one. Not my field of expertise.
  2. Try the opening paragraph; "More than 200 schools in South Korea have been forced to close just days after they re-opened, due to a new spike in virus cases."
  3. South Korea was praised for its proactive approach, including trace & track, quick lockdown of the country in order to combat the virus, resulting in low numbers of confirmed cases & deaths. They eased their restrictions a few weeks ago & their schools reopened a few days ago with the the children heading back. What's now happened? A spike in cases. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-52845015?intlink_from_url=&link_location=live-reporting-story Now if a country which took such a draconian approach, where there was no doubt 100% cooperation from their public in lockdown is facing a second spike, where does that leave the likes of us in the UK, where many now appear to have the attitude that the virus has left us, we can congregate with whoever & how many others as we like, neglecting social distancing & with children expected back at school without our trace & track system yet to be fully rolled out?
  4. All this lockdown stuff "Is sending some people dolally."
  5. Yes. Next person has travelled on a steam train?
  6. Well you can probably blame the BBC for attractng the tourists to Eyam, following based on the report they ran on the news a few weeks ago, highlighting the COVID-19 pandemic & the village's reaction to the plague centuries ago. One of those, well we've run out everything else we can wring out of COVID-19, can anyone think of a new angle that will get us a story?
  7. I've been through the desert on a horse with no name It felt good to be out of the rain In the desert you can remember your name 'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain.
  8. Genuine unsolicited good, can be treated as unsolicited 'gifts' & can be kept. Some are scams to try & extort money from you but it is the sender who'll end up out of pocket. There are consumer laws to protect you. https://consumerarbitration.co.uk/2018/11/01/unsolicited-goods-your-rights/ https://www.thecomplainingcow.co.uk/all-you-need-to-know-about-unsolicited-goods
  9. Does God exist? Perhaps? But intelligent design? Lucky for us, God gave us evolution, dinosaurs & science.
  10. A man goes into a restaurant. He looks at the menu & says to the waiter, "I'll have the octopus." The waiter replies, "Thank you sir but just to warn you, you'll have to wait 4 & a half hours." "4 & a half hours?" The customer snaps back. "Why the long wait? The waiter replies, "Well sir, we cook them alive & they keep turning the gas off!"
  11. In Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer Katzenellen Bogen By The Sea.
  12. "Mystery of the Silent Spreaders." Sounds like a title of an old American, 50's 'B' movie? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52840763 The 'asymptomatic' aspect of this virus is the truely worrying aspect of it? People who show no signs of carrying the virus.
