  1. I think that's fake isn't it? The first comment under it was "even if it's fake, he's still a c**t" !!
  2. She's brilliant. But it's not until you see the lyrics that you realise her true genius. I don't know what her uncle is stressed about, but fair play to the goldfish. Bubbles and water Legs up for hours My goldfish is under me To bathe for hours Makes my mouth water I'm foamely ecstatic It's not a problem I lazy 'round Bubbly and stubborn I lazy 'round Melon and water Is just a dream It makes me wonder Is it a sin? Bubbles and water Legs up for hours Bombs, you keep away from me Today lying low Twisting up my toes I swim in such harmony So what bothers me? I'm fed up with loneliness With my uncle overstressed Fumbling, crawling for something That never shows, just a dream I'm fed up with creeps crying Over the past, such a sin Not to be cool, but a fool If I could mess up their rules I'm fed up with your complaints Baby, well I'm not a saint Fed up with the rain, the plane That makes me throw up again I'm fed up with all cynics Bathing caps and all critics I'm fed up with being fed up Poor me! Bubbles and water Legs up for hours My goldfish still under me Delight of pleasures Aquatic treasures A place out of misery, my fantasy I'm fed up with loneliness With my uncle overstressed Fumbling, crawling for something That never shows, just a dream I'm fed up with creeps crying Over the past, such a sin Not to be cool, but a fool If I could mess up their rules I'm fed up with your complaints Baby, well I'm not a saint Fed up with the rain, the plane That makes me throw up again I'm fed up with all cynics Bathing caps and all critics I'm fed up with being fed up Poor me!

  3. On a more positive note, can I just take a moment to thank whoever posted this all those pages ago.. a little ray of sunshine amongst the storm.
  4. Agree. I'd like to think longer term that the tories will realise that their policies for years that have encouraged a look after yourself and f**k everyone else spirit don't serve us well in the grander scheme of things. They won't, but that's for further down the line. When you look at the shambles the Trump administration is making of this, with regular disagreements and changes of message day to day, and you compare it to how all our political parties are trying to show a united front to get the right message across and tackle the issue, it's night and day. Also letting the scientists and experts in the field drive decisions rather than politics and ego is a relief. There's no winning here. It's a shite situation anyway you handle it, just got to minimise it's impact as much as possible, and folk just have to accept that.
  5. The worldometer site breaks down the USA figures by state. NY state has 883 deaths, with the next highest of the other states being Washington on 189. It shows how bad things are getting in NY and how far ahead of the rest of the country they are. Those two states being on opposite sides of the country suggests there might not be an obvious pattern in the way it spreads in the U.K., after London which seems to be ahead of the rest of the country.
  6. That would be my guess. Cycles of the stay at home policy then relax it to let people get out and relieve the pressure of being cooped up until strains on hospitals start to pick up again. All the while keeping a full lockdown up the sleeve for when things look like spiralling way out of control.
  7. The herd immunity strategy has been written in the response plans for this country devised by scientific, medical and statistical epidemiologists for years. In effect it's the only way to end a pandemic surely, a large enough percentage of the population are immune so that the virus runs out of new folk to infect. It's usually done through vaccination, but unfortunately we don't have one and are a good while from having one apparently. Herd immunity is still happening now, but the negative portrayal of it simply being the government sacrificing thousands of citizens so that the economy can get going again, meant they binned using the expression. So protect the elderly and most vulnerable as best we can, whilst using social distancing and other associated control measures to attempt to keep the strain on the health service at a manageable level. But ultimately, with no knowledge on this, surely a large amount of people developing immunity is the only way it can ever end? Otherwise, as long as the disease continues anywhere on the planet, we remain at risk of another outbreak. For all those who say we should have locked down sooner, do you really think people would have complied here until it was right on their doorstep as it is now? No chance. Did anyone modify their behaviour at all when the SARS, swine flu, Ebola epidemics were killing people in other parts of the world? Would people have been happy shutting everything down here and staying at home? Again, no chance.
  8. Big rise in deaths in Italy again 5909 new cases and 919 new deaths in Italy. Highest number of new deaths since the beginning of the epidemic in Italy [source] [video]. 46 doctors have died to date (with 4 additional deaths today). 6414 health workers have tested positive
  9. @Miguel Sanchez I'd like to nominate all those c***s who get a smug feeling of superiority at slagging off families etc for showing support to the NHS staff. I get that it does f**k all, and it's not really my kind of thing, but at a time when a lot of families are probably scared and feeling a bit helpless, some moment of feeling like they're doing something positive with the rest of their street does no harm whatsoever. And if it keeps the work of nhs staff to the forefront of the public attention, hopefully it's remembered when all this is done and the government next try to shaft them. Yes, obviously nhs staff would rather have correct ppe, but the two are hardly fucking related. It's not as if some family standing at their front door clapping is delaying the local hospital getting a delivery of face masks, gloves and protective suits. Its far too easy to be cynical about everything as an internet 'commentator', and there's a fair lack of self-awareness from folk slagging off others for the futility of a couple of minutes applause when they're sitting spending all day discussing the whole situation with a bunch of strangers on the internet.
  10. Speedy recovery Tam. We can't afford to lose anyone.
  11. A lot better than I thought it would be. I've occasionally wondered what changes the covid19 era will have on our long term behaviours. When this video started, and some of the girls were leaning on each other, bizarrely the first thought that came into my head was that they shouldn't all be standing so close to one another. The next thought was wid, wid, wid, wid, wid.
  12. I'd go Lesser South Inch as well. Spend a lot on state of the art drainage, have a piazza built out over the glorious river Tay behind the home side, with benches and outdoor kiosks serving an array of tasty beverages and exotic foods from around the world. A compact site featuring a tight steep sided stadium with stands close to the pitch. Capacity 7000. 5-10 minute walk from train and bus stations, and the town centre bars and restaurants. Keep McDiarmid as a training complex and for big European matches, or for a live video feed on big screens for when the Lesser South Inch is sold out.
  13. I think that's an excellent graphic. But I honestly think that society as a whole is so thick, that to many that'll just be a picture of dots and lines, and the whole concept is lost. It almost has to be done with people e.g. This is John, John goes into a shop and shakes hands with Tom then hugs Sandra etc, with very basic instructions but very brief and concise due to folks' limited attention spans. I think the same with the whole 'flatten the curve' slogan; so many people will see these pictures of two straight lines and a curvy line with a country written beside it, and it will mean f**k all. Many people are still probably going about normal life with the attitude "if I get it, i get it" without understanding the bigger picture. Its one of the big missed opportunities in the way this has been dealt with, the dire lack of relatable social media output to inform and educate, and shape people's behaviour, as well as to stop the vacuum which is inevitably filled by here say and rumours racing around Facebook/ twitter etc. It's never been easier to get your message across and it's as if they're happy to the media shape the whole narrative.
