  1. Wow that looks freakin easy. I wonder what the weight of it is?
  2. Im so bored. I got laid off Feb 28th so I feel like I've been in isolation for 3 weeks already. This is extremely bad timing as all of the jobs I've applied to are now working from home and clearly not worried about hiring!
  3. A lockdown cant go on for ever. When we get sick, most illnesses we've dealt with have an average incubation of 2 days. That means you come into contact with someone, the next say they say "oh I've got the flu not" and the next day you have it. The rate of contagion is low. Once you're infected, naturally, most people self-isolate 1. Because they feel like shit 2. Because they dont want to get other people sick. The difference with Corona, is its massively contagious before anyone shows any symptoms, which can be up to a 2 week period. At the 2 week point all new cases should be theoretically self-identifyable. So if you put your country into a hard lockdown technically after 2 weeks all cases should be identifiable and all other potential new cases should be traceable. It's like hitting a reset button on it "running wild" as someone else mentioned. Again, theoretically if you shut your borders and stopped all movement for about 6 weeks the virus would be eliminated. The problem comes after, as you cant keep borders shut indefinitely. The other issue is there seem to be quite a few outlying cases which arent behaving as predicted. People talking about reinfection, etc. They have developed a test for antibodies so we should know that soon enough. I would predict most countries wont leave major restrictions in place for any longer than a couple of months. Life needs to resume, for the sake of the economy.
  4. Well the title of the thread isnt specific enough. Im 100% sure Glastonbury is going to go ahead. The 50th anniversary 2020 Glastonbury however I'm not as confident about.
  5. Macca is my #1 concern.... after expecting him last year and not getting him, and not expecting him this year and then getting him only for a pandemic to get in the way. I have a feeling the rollercoaster isnt done yet.
  6. I'm not emotionally ready for this.
  7. Glad I stayed up this late. At least we know now and all the speculation can come to a close.
  8. Teach him to gargle?
  9. But on the bright side you didnt have to clean it up!
  10. If somehow someway there is a 2020 festival I will never slag off Coldplay again!!
  11. They could be making sure all their ducks are in a row with insurance Or They could be trying to see if a new date is feasible. Im not saying it is feasible, but I think they're trying and that's why we havent heard yet. That Mitski song is stuck in my head....nobody, nobody, nobody,,,nobody knows nobody
  12. Yeah I think what the masses really arent getting is that you're the most contagious before you show symptoms, which could be up to 14 days. That's honestly like nothing we've dealt with is up until this point, so people are treating it like a normal flu where you're contagious during but dont feel like going out anyways.
  13. We're still in the early stages, but social distancing is in full affect. Theres immediate employment insurance available to anyone who is self quarentined or has been in contact with someone or has lost their job. People are still freaking out, buying up all the food and toilet paper. Schools are closed, universities closed, theatres are closed, malls closed, government run facilities closed. Theres essentially no where for anyone to gather. March 22 our borders close for 30 days to all non citizens, except for some bizarre reason US citizens are exempt. I think we have a decent chance to slow this thing down as our government is acting while we are still at the start, but unfortunately there are idiots everywhere and many people ignoring the measures.
  14. Did a quick scan and think I got it. The second spike is after a 5 month social distancing stint, which would expected. Kids etc would return to school in Sept and probably start a new cycle, but a fair number of people will be immune at that point.
  15. @vintagelaureate It kinda reminded me of this song but I'm not sure I nailed it for you. I got lost in a deep youtube rabbit hole for a solid 4 hours.
  16. If they can I dont know why they wouldnt at least say postponed. It gives them approximately 2 more months of time before they have to put the money in and start the build. I wouldnt think they had anything to lose by buying them 2 more months. They could easily push the balance payment date 2 months and wait and see. Why not? I'm not sure what kind of model you are following over there, but here in Canada the border is shutting down for 30 days, social distancing, etc. But those measures will likely only be for a MAX 2 months.
  17. What if we all just went.... no fences....woodstock style
  18. It was definitely going to be a washout this year.
  19. If they dont give people the option to take a 2021 ticket in some form that's really a punch to the face.
  20. Literally been a really horrible year. I came home from Glastonbury 2019 to find that my apartment had sat flooded for about a week, most of my stuff was ruined, I spent a month and a half living on couches, while still paying rent. Hadn't recovered financially yet, and now a couple of weeks ago I get laid off from a job I loved, with coworkers I loved. This was the 1 thing I was looking forward to. A real fucking bummer.
  21. Hes from the fyre festival documentary. He declared quite honestly that he was prepared to suck an individuals dick in Hope's of saving the festival.
