  1. I was lucky in that I got furloughed for four months. So I took all the 'clever' (politics, etc) books on my shelf (about eight?) stuck them in a pile and read all of them eventually. I also watched shedloads of docs about Trump, racism, Nazis, etc. So I now have a really pretty good understanding of just how screwed we are as a species. Which is nice.

  6. Yes, it's true that the vaccines (like most vaccines) will probably work better in younger individuals. But (and it's a big but), we don't really know how well any of the vaccines will work in terms of catching and spreading the virus. Some vaccines are very good at stopping you from getting infected and preventing onward transmission (the measles vaccine for example), others are better at stopping you from developing disease after infection (like the flu shot). The primary efficacy endpoints in the trial protocols I have read (for a bunch of the vaccines) have a positive PCR test and at least

  8. That’s the million dollar question! The rapid tests detect intact virus (mostly), so you have to assume you are capable of passing it on at that stage if you test positive (about 15 hours before symptoms seems to be the median time of pre-symptomatic infectiousness). Negative on those tests suggests an undetectable level of intact virus, so less likely to be infectious. The problem with the White House is they test them every day, but then they go off all over the place and interact with people outside and with little or no mitigation. They also haven’t isolated or taken any of the advice to

  13. Regarding polls in previous elections being wrong, I think that it's easy to take that view after an election you lost if you'd been focussing on polls that supported the result you had hoped for. It's like believing that you know the mood of a nation based on the handful of people you know. If I took that view I'd be surprised every time people didn't throw down their tools and seize the means of production from the kleptocrats. All the people I know tend to be people like me, not a broad spectrum of the population but various flavours of leftie with the occasional token tory thrown in beca

  16. Looks fair enough to me. Nowt to do with the licence fee. 'The BBC and ITV’s answer to Netflix, BritBox is the British broadcasters’ “joint vision” for a streaming service in the UK. The service also includes content from Channel 4 and Channel 5. BritBox already exists in the US and is said to have exceeded expectations there, currently boasting over half a million subscribers. BritBox will not take any money from the licence fee to pay for its set up or to make its new programmes, and by making older archive shows available it is providing a new service to anything that ex

  19. I don't buy the 'Trump has dementia', but I do think he's high on his own farts, and the psychopathy/narcism/self-delusion is spiralling out of control due to the power and adulation he receives- absolutely toxic combo.

  20. London is an oddity. I think a big part of it is that to get anywhere you have to take the tube. And everyone who lives or works in London is quite aware of just how a big a disease incubator the tube is at the best of times, being crammed into small carriages, with no air circulation, 100s of feet underground. It doesn't take government guidance for people to know that getting the tube is a bad idea. But London is so reliant on it, far fewer people drive. So if you don't drive and won't take the tube, you're not going anywhere not in walking distance (yes, there are buses but they'll be

  27. Yeah, I'm not unhappy about cinema pricing. Last time I went to the pictures we paid a fiver each at a Vue cinema. A friend went to a midnight screening of the same film the night before at a boutique place where he paid £34 for the ticket and had a spacious comfy recliner chair and meals and drinks brought to him on request. He was happy to pay the premium for that experience and I have no problem with cinemas expanding their offering to provide more than just a bog standard experience. When I go to the cinema I do so for the sound, the atmosphere and the big screen experience. Watchi

I'm gonna love next year when we come out of lockdown and I want to go to sports, gigs, films, festivals and the theatre to celebrate but they have all closed down and the only activity you can do in the UK is shop and eat, and also I can't do any activities cause I'm broke and depressed. 201 here we come FUCK THE TORIES

  30. you remove your mask then the next person does .... and then cinemas get busier and people aren't wearing masks because they didnt the last time ... and covid has a party in the cinema ... Masks are a pain but not impossible we need to get over this ... They have the potential to save someones life or stop someone becoming ill .... it will protect others and protect you whatever the distance ...

  35. But it's not a 4% chance of dying if you go out it's a 4% chance of dying if you catch it and given this dad is following all the rules the chances of him catching it will be even smaller. I wouldn't call the author disgusting but certainly she is patronising in the extreme, her dad knows the risks and is abiding by the rules, so that's his choice surely.

  42. Mentally I’ve never felt better, weird thing to say during a global pandemic. At the beginning of lockdown my kids went to stay with their grandma as my son needed shielding and both myself and my wife were essential workers, going to and from work driving through a deserted city centre and not seeing my kids could have buckled me but it did the opposite and mentally toughened me up, it hasn’t gone away since

  44. A mock festival set was also created the Wells side of the Mendips. It had main stage, traders, loos, camping fields and loads of litter. A friend of mine who works on film sets was also living onsite in a caravan as kind of night time security as well as his normal job with the crew. He said that it was one of the oddest places to stay at night when everyon else had left. A shout out went out locally for youngsters to be extras there. They had to dance in front of the main stage....with no music playing. The goat wedding scene was filmed in the woods on the Ashton Court Estate. I pr
