    twocents got a reaction from Loki in Pandemic coming? - Coronavirus August onwards 2020 (Part 4)   
    From the most recent mail link above (October).
    Scientists are excited by the new imagery, which they believe will enable them to assess how the virus controls our bodies +9  
     
    A bag of dyed blue chicken wire offcuts, a bit of aluminium coat hanger, rainbow and white candy beads, a bit of plain plastic carrier bag and some pasta with blueberry yoghurt drizzle. 
    Mix it all together and bend as necessary - deadly, do not come in contact - wear a mask.  Makes a scary photo image though.
    "Scientists are excited by the new imagery".  Bet they are £££$$$$$.  Fool me once ......

    Violet's false logic.  Even the government doesn't claim that wearing a mask offers protection to the wearer.

    This month.
     
     
    From January
     
    They're images of the virus - the same virus? 
    The images don't look that similar - maybe the new image is of one the other viruses they've reportedly let loose inside of China this year.  If they can accidentally release such a "deadly virus" that is a "virus killing millions around the world" and then by all accounts almost immediately afterwards let loose other viruses inside China then to be fair it's just possible they might have got them all mixed up.

    It has been deliberately destroyed, along with a sense of community.  
     
    may they reap what they sow.

    twocents reacted to Melchett in England no longer expects....   
    I guess I am likely from the last generation that was brought up regarding "England expects every man to do his duty" as an aspirational sentiment that little boys absorbed and internalised, as part of a tale of exciting derring-do without even realising it. 
    I cant see the story of Trafalgar appealing to kids in the playground now, who mostly now owe no allegiance to this country or its history, far less buying into it. Combine that with the fact that even if kids did take it on board, the zeitgeist would suggest there would be nothing worth applying it to.
     
    Its a sad realisation, but perhaps for the best?
    To destroy a people, you must first destroy their sense of shared history.

    They probably do stop a small amount of COVID deaths by stopping the more vulnerable obese from shovelling nutrition-free but calorie-dense food into their fat fucking maws for a small amount of time.

    I did chasing on site years ago for days at a time wearing an FFP2 mask.  Still ended up with grey snot.  Of course, they aren't even filtered on the exhale.
    Those reusable things are grim.  
    It's all bollocks.

    If they can do without the sales from those aisles for weeks and maybe months on end so that they cover them up just like that then it's evident that supermarket margins aren't as thin as they always like to claim in overall profit terms.
    On top of that they're still open for business with government subsidies including paying even more discounted wages now with massive Covid subsidies from the government (taxpayer), tax reductions and so on - on top of all the normal subsidies.
    The bloke said something like since when did kids and baby clothes become non-essential - too true.

    There's some irony about face covering there, but I can't quite put my finger on it

    They need to find a big wide square, get Hugo Bossed up for the occasion and have a nice big fire. No temptation then and frees up an aisle for essentials.

    No books for us in Wales. I suppose if we were free to read any old thing we might start getting ideas.

    twocents got a reaction from Van Lady in Pandemic coming? - Coronavirus August onwards 2020 (Part 4)   
    The so called experts who appear on shows like that are all just narrative pushers.  Official narrative.  They're the same on the radio.
    Maureen had a good opinion and the Doctor treated her similarly face to face as Brown in bigotgate with Gillian Duffy.   It was reminiscent of that.  Reasonable if maybe a bit patronising at some points.  Maureen's husband made up for the patronising bit. 
    I dare say unlike Brown the Doctor didn't say anything amiss after the interview though.

    Indeed.  It all just gets worse and worse - and there's no political opposition by the main political parties to it.
    It's a bit like the terrorist threat levels.  Before they were introduced you could even go to airports and have some innocent entertainent on viewing platforms or in cafes watching planes on the tarmac moving around and taking off and landing,  Now it all seems to be blanked off apparently for security.  So many similar instances of similar restrictions.
    Now it's the Covid restrictions on top of it all.
  16. Agree
    twocents got a reaction from Van Lady in Pandemic coming? - Coronavirus August onwards 2020 (Part 4)   
    Interesting that the Scottish five levels start from Level 0 - not from Level 1.  In the article Level 0 is claimed to be "nearly normal"  but still has serious restrictions compared to the old normal.
    Presumably that means that to get back to old normal she (or whoever is in charge) still has to make an announcement that Covid is no longer a threat and the five levels no longer apply.
    You could say it's the same if they started from Level 1 but there is a subtle difference in perception and propaganda terms between claiming to be at zero Covid level and still being at level 1.  That is if those levels are ever applied.

    She put forward that without them having been tested then they didn't know if they had covid. 
    The couple didn't answer that in the clip, but who knows if it was edited out.

    Those who use agressive meme sound bites as "persuasion" are likely best avoided 
    It's copycat culture - like politicians and sales people who use the same methods.

    Being challenged to 'survive' someone's personality suggests that person is a pain in the arse.
    Right up there with the "if you can't handle me at my worst you don't deserve me at my best" meme that is trotted out all the time on dating sites.
