  1. Too close to red for my liking... 😂
  2. I don't really like ads but I understand that stuff has to be paid for so I accept a few unobtrusive ones. However, when they start getting silly then adblockers and things like that start to get used. I've come off some site altogether in the past because of the excessive ads.
  3. Doesn't even make sense, there's 2 nations in the British Isles - UK and the Republic of Ireland 🤷‍♂️
  4. The Verisure alarms adverts. I can't work out whether they are being deliberately cheesy or just hamming it up 🤷‍♂️
  5. The virgin hubs used to be rubbish at wifi, I don't know whether that's still true. I've always put it in modem mode and used a third party wifi router for my wifi.
  6. Interestingly I was round at a friends tonight, his wife is a senior teacher at a "special school" in the Norton area - there aren't that many, I mentioned this thread to her and she was horrified. Assuming what you've said is in anyway true and, of course, assuming it's the same school, I'd probably keep away from her if I was you.
  7. This is a tough one. On one hand we have an article written by a consultant of geriatrics and acute general medicine written in the premier medical journal of the land. On the other, we have a self-proclaimed covid sceptic who bases all their knowledge on anecdotal observations. No idea who to believe......
  8. So, the right wing echo chamber that is GB News starts tonight at 8pm. Do people think it's going to be like Fox news in the USA? ie heavy on outrage, light on truth? I suspect certain groups will lap it up as it will probably mirror their "quirky" views on the world.
  9. To be fair, the right spent the same amount of time saying how honest and trustworthy he was - to suddenly not believe anything he says post sacking 😂 I personally think the guy is a weasel who will say anything to achieve his goals (whatever they are!) I also noted the lack of anything said against Michael Gove, who will quite possibly be the leader following Johnson. Probably just trying to line up his next job.
  10. Excellent news - the youngsters haven't always had the greatest press when it comes to the virus but it's heartening to see so many making an effort to get society moving again. Get a jab, wear a mask, see this virus off, then we can argue the toss over the cost/benefit of it all for the next 30 years - IN THE EFFING PUB.
  11. It's 25 years ago, treatments for many things have improved since then leading to more people surviving things like cancer - just look at the increase in lifespan (about 5 years extra now compared to 1995) https://www.statista.com/statistics/1040159/life-expectancy-united-kingdom-all-time/ For anyone interested here's a link to the mortality numbers from 1838 - there's a similar spike in 1918, although more pronounced due to the smaller population (you need to be able to read an xls file) https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/adhocs/12735annualdeathsandmortalityrates1938to2020provisional
  12. Mainly due to people equating "Indian variant" with "It's Indians people fault" and causing problems as a result. We have 2 good universities in Sheffield and it's not beyond the realms of possibility that they could discover a "Sheffield Variant" - do you want people blaming and attacking you for that?
  13. Daily mail - would you expect anything less? 😂
  14. The track and trace app only asks for the first part of your post code. Apple and Google were very specific about what they'd allow their phones to do with regards to privacy. The source code is available to inspect should anyone wish to : https://faq.covid19.nhs.uk/article/KA-01157/en-us You'll probably just have to give your name and a contact phone number for their records. Paper systems are still used
