    What a virtue signalling cunt Did she have time to read out the names of the 19,000 girls raped by the peace-luvvers?

    Yes, but if I had a mild case, no fucking way would I go to hospital until I was really ill. I'd take my chances, and post about my illness on DOSBODS, asking about how much apple cider vinegar, zinc tablets and vitamin D I should be taking..

    100% Already had the conversation with family members including my Mum (whose situation you'll be familiar with ) Unless seriously fucked. No one is reporting from here on in. Even the GP visit will expose you to "help" from the state. In a matter of weeks we'll be looking at "special treatment centres" which will actually be sports halls with NHS drones watching you die. I'd rather meet my maker in my own house to be honest.

    Lottery Thread

    I have never done the lottery. Two reasons. 1. I have already won the lottery of life by being born in the UK - a place where the worst that happens is you get 50 quid a week off the dole and your rent paid. 2. If I won, I would be dead within six months via a combination of liver failure and the clap... XYY

    Actions thus far have been: Weak travel advisories Repatriated people have been quarantined All known cases to date have been isolated There has been limited contact tracing / testing of known associates of confirmed patients In terms of wider societal measures? FUCK ALL. That's right ladies and gentlemen not one SINGLE FUCKING THING has been done by the Government to change the course of this thing. It's a sham to be seen to be doing "something".

    Working to (almost) the bitter end

    It's been a sad couple weeks. Two people I work with - or have worked with in one case - have passed away. One lady, retired at age 65 in 2011 (a year before I began working there) but carried on working two days a week on a casual basis, passed away last week. She did retire for good 3 years ago aged 71 after he brother passed away. She got only 3 years worth of real retirement. Cancer related. It was a shock as she was quite physically fit for her age. She was the archetypical "Boomer" that we all used to moan about on here. The second was announced this afternoon. He joined our first floor office from the downstairs warehouse last spring. Despite sitting at a desk almost opposite him, none of us knew a lot about him. I think he was in his early 60s, single. So not even made it to retirement. His mum called to announce the sad news. It must be very tough when someone loses a son or daughter. Sad events like these certainly makes the idea of early retirement a lot more appealing. As one of my colleagues said after the announcement: "You never know when your time is up"

    So it was 115 UK cases of 9am this morning with the daily increase in infection decreasing from 66% to 35% so looks like everything is getting under control thanks to the magnificent progress being made in handwashing, nose touching and finger licking by Public Health England (other regional and governmental bodies are available). I had originally pencilled in 135 cases but fortunately I prematurely overshot my statistical load with this one.

    A Co-Op manager at the checkout just scanned my goods and then did a hacking cough into his hand. I coughed back. I asked about the virus. He said he saw it as an opportunity to sell paracetamol. I pointed out that paracetamol was bad for fevers. As I left the shop the Co-Op sent me a survey asking me how well they are helping the health of the community.

    Really interesting and please keep doing this stuff. A few things spring to mind. 1) Italy were so shit that by the time they got to 20 it was already community spreading and there wasn't any information out there to stop it. So their take off point is earlier 2) PHE and the NHS have played a blinder and all it takes to beat this is a bit of hand washing and we're all winners! 3) The U.K. just hasn't hit whatever lift off point is yet. More social distancing and more awareness have slowed this down. But it's in the post and London will lead the way. 10 million people living on top of each other with shared infrastructure. Hopefully the U.K. is just fucking lucky and we waltz our way through this. We beat the Bosch goddammit no fucking Chinky yellow peril virus can ever defeat us.... Swing low sweet chariot etc..... Cough... cough..... Oh Bollocks!

    Work Place Stress

    It took me 15 years of working to realise the more you do for the company to keep things going the more they believe everything is fine, and your extra efforts are expected. There is a fine line to tread between doing just enough and avoiding performance management. One of the key lessons I learned is that now and again you just need to make the company feel pain. For example, if you are putting in extra hours to keep things functioning it's counterproductive. You have to let things fail so that something gets done about them. Just be sure you have the answers to cover yourself when upper management come asking. A few years back I found myself the only network engineer in a FTSE-250 listed online busness. My job was looking after all the production networks and internet connections that allowed customers onto the websites. After a couple of people resigned one spring and the company dragged its heels on recruitment, I couldn't take a summer holiday and I was permanently on call 24/7 until autumn when the headcount was finally replaced. Yes, this was a result of bad management, poor planning on the company's part etc. However, this was also down to me accepting the situation. I should have called in sick or got signed off for stress, which genuinely my doc would have done for me in a heartbeat. Had I done that, and something went wrong, the money would have instantly stopped flowing in to the company. Something would have been done about it instantly. I tried going to HR, talking to my boss but nobody understood what I was saying, and kept plodding on at the same time, the missus going crazy because we couldn't have a holiday or even go away for the weekend. Pleased to say I now work for a company where I have a lot more freedom to make decisions and I know where to draw the line. It was a tough lesson for me.

    Nope. Numbers will be released but locations now weekly. However, proximity to infection is probably risk factor numero uno.... Nobody will know from Friday to Friday where this has got to...... Patient ringing 111 "I'm not feeling great perhaps it's Covid-19?" 111 drone "Have you been in close proximity with a known case" Patient "Well do you know where they are?" 111 Drone "Yes but we can't tell you that" Patient "Well then I can't be sure I have" 111 Drone "Then you are low risk - go about your business and call us back if you start drowning in your own fluids....."

    That corrupt cunt can fuck off. He is one of the people responsible for this slow motion disaster. He could have held China to task, but no, he was worried about his paypacket. The WHO could have stopped all travel in January from China. Insisted on their own teams going into Wuhan. Chinese gvt forced to either say yes, or be shown up for the mass murderers they are. It's his fault. Blair, Merkel, this guy - all people that should hope they never come within fist range of me.

    Assuming China numbers are along way out, reckon there is more than anecdotal evidence that many, many more affected then some of these outlier cases may be the very small extreme cases, might the same to some extent with the secondary organ viral issues reported on, hopefully these are mainly at the margins. Overall averages is what counts in terms of risk - what is the serous infection rates, what is the mortality rate, wherever those figures can be reliably sourced is what to look at without becoming excessively inundated with potential negatives, just to keep things in perspective. Hypocrites the lot of them, want the airlines to fold one minute cause it is the green thing to do to appease the CO2 Gods then moaning when it happens.

    Excellent. This should be the standard response where the "refugees" have already flouted the law and failed to claim asylum in the first safe country they come to. By not following this law they are effectively changing their status from refugees to trespassers. Trespassers should be shot. Hopefully this news will reach all the shitholes of the world and they will be less inclined to invade our civilisation.

    Government response has been worse than inept. They needed to take firm action. All flights to/from Italy and other obviously infected places should have been banned outright. All events and other gatherings should have been stopped. Right now, they should be seriously considering shutting down all rail links into London and the Underground. Time is of the essence.

    The difference is one i use all the time.Go on Google earth and look at every council estate in the land.Look in the back gardens.Count the amount of trampolines.Almost everyone paid for with tax credits,every one imported. Now instead of government ramping that up,they will instead ramp up spending here.Instead of feeding China by importing deflation,we will instead inflate. Government borrowing to fund Mercedes to buy her 4 ADHD kids a trampoline from China is a different thing to borrowing at 0.6% to help put the backbone in so Drax and SSE can produce hydrogen.The problem of the last 40 years is governments have funded their own gallows,their own rope,and their own Pierrepoint through printing.

    The Coronavirus Prepper Thread

    On the freezer front a couple of points about food safety: -18 isn't a safety parameter but a long term food preservation one. Food safety isn't compromised until about -5 deg C is reached because at this temperature Listeria will start to grow. Listeria isn't spore forming and its toxin isn't heat stable so this is only relevant to ready to eat food. Raw products will keep for much lower at those temperatures - just cook thoroughly to kill bacteria and any toxins if we do face extended power cuts: prior to cuts fill voids with water filled containers to increase thermal mass Prior to cuts run freezer at max coldness to build a reserve of thermal mass If there are cuts: Sling any spare duvets etc over the freezer to preserve cold Eat the ready to eat first - Ice cream, diary produce, cooked meats Then raw meats Then Veg

    Or remember the men killed by men. Or remember the women killed by women. Maybe none of those count for Jess Philips ("I'm just a thick Brummie me!") but for the victim I don't think it particularly matters what sex is your killer; you'd rather they just didn't murder you.

    That was me, going off sick last night, as per my previous post. It would have been hell on toast there without me, and I did feel a pang of regret that my colleagues would have to take on my two jobs in addition to their many own. Haven't had the fallout yet, but if they want to reprimand me for one "sickness" absence, in an otherwise exemplary six month's performance, fuck them. Good look finding some other sucker.

    True... Again I'm having to bite my virtual tongue. There's no kudos attached to being a catastrophist but posting stuff like "tripping over banana skins is more dangerous" garners likes by the bucketload. People are looking for comfort in what is increasingly looking like tough times. I'm just going to let them get on with it. The truth will out in approx . next 21 days. It's out of the bottle and putting a corona virus frame up on FB wouldn't make one fucking iota of difference. I must admit the ones that really draw me in are those that just use incorrect data. Some twunt last night claiming that you've got a 99.99999% chance of surviving this even if you get it..... Er. Bollocks have you.

    Tubby moustachioed US porn star. My first retirement (aged 38) was triggered by three people in the same company aged about 50 dying of cancer and heart attack or nearly dying with a massive stroke. I had a l;ook at my assets and put in my notice. They were all c. 12 years older than me in similar pressure roles. I took that as a warning and jumped. I have regarded my subsequent jobs as hobbies and am now on my bike. I however think it is incorrect to classify people as working voluntarily; everyone I know would retire tomorrow if they could afford to do so.

    Tattoos

    I've noticed over the last few years that finding out that a woman who I previously fancied has a tattoo instantly turns me from lust to permanent revulsion. Any tattoo seems able to do the trick. It must spark some deep thing within me about if they show that bad judgement and are willing to abuse their body like that, what else are they capable of/is wrong with them? Im not even interested in pron if the woman has a visible tattoo. You cant negotiate desire. And Im sure Im not alone in this.

    Still believe there is a large environmental factor going on here as well. As much as China seems to be top of the situation this is only in combination with measures put in place - quarantines at so many levels - individuals - restrictions or no movement, apartment blocks . gated areas, regions, transport systems, individual factories. Those control points are heavily monitored - temp readings, individual identification . tracking, almost compulsory mask wearing, etc. That seems to be working (though still don't believe the numbers fully, CCP leaning so heavily in favour of no/low reported new cases this could skew the numbers significantly). Now to compare that with ROW - don't need masks, carry on as normal, the odd school/medical facility shutdown and clean, almost zero controls at airports, no strict instructions to self isolate, no penalties (they are harsh in China), no quarantine areas, no temp readings when you go anywhere - even Chinese shops are testing at the door, that is a world of difference. Italy is the mid point here, they let it get out of control (so not just a shit sanitation issue) and now at the stage where closing all schools/unis has been the next control point, will it work, it will lower numbers but will it do enough, I don't think there are really any half measures here, all or nothing if you want to control the spread.
