  1. Parents when they announce kids being in school for 16 hours a day, seven days a week
  2. Yeah I just like cheese and bacon tbh.
  3. The First Minister felt like crying after seeing a picture of people queuing outside a pub in Aberdeen. She said similar about people sunbathing on Portobello beach a few months ago. What will the next thing to make Nicola Sturgeon want to cry?
  4. Inspired by throbber I’m trying Keto today. Breakfast of bacon and eggs, fried in butter, lunch of cheese and salami and pork belly and salad for tea. Need to find an alternative to pork feel bad for the piggies.
  5. Spending years running a sock puppet Twitter account, using it to boost yourself and solicit financial donations and then having the account die isn’t the same as a writer using a pen name. I’m sure people did stuff like this in the past but social media has been a big enabler of behaviour like this. I wonder how it manifested itself in the past.
  6. Here is another thread about it. Twitter makes people do very odd things. I wonder if people did stuff like this before social media and the internet. Got to assume they did but probably at lower rates.
  7. An academic who started a Me Too Group for women in STEM but was found to have harassed people herself has been found to have created a fake account purporting to be a queer Native American professor. When she was going to be found out the fake account claimed to have died of Covid, leading to tributes to her work and career, none of which existed.
  8. There are people who are espousing the theory that Johnson’s latest baby is a hoax.
  9. https://www.cebm.net/covid-19/covid-cases-in-england-arent-rising-heres-why/
  10. We have unintentionally created a unique environment in human history, where it’s easy to consume excess calories and get fat. Evolution makes humans one of the fattest primates anyway and in these circumstances it’s inevitable that we will see an obesity rise. When people talk about educating people about food, it really comes down to families and learning by example and having eating habits that allow people to eat properly. When I was a kid we often ate three meals a day as a family, but now I have my own family it can be a struggle to get one meal in together (pre lockdown).
  11. During the Spanish flu in 1919 there were protests against mask requirements. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Mask_League_of_San_Francisco
  12. I don’t like jumping on the bandwagon but it’s simply completely false to suggest that pre social media there was no hysteria about health stories. The bets example is one that is still ongoing and was discussed in another thread, that MMR vaccination. That story was pushed through the mainstream media and had a huge impact, with vaccination rates dropping by up to 30% in some places.
  13. I thought there was a strong suggestion he made the gun himself but from that article it has been stolen. Interesting.
  14. French study on primary school children and the virus https://www.pasteur.fr/en/press-area/press-documents/covid-19-primary-schools-no-significant-transmission-among-children-students-teachers
