    Dipsy got a reaction from GBDamo in Good Film Wot I Have Just Watched Thread   
    The menacing build up in that scene is quite something, I know people dismiss Brad Pitt as a pretty boy but he is excellent in this.

    Dipsy got a reaction from karelian in Contact Tracing Apps   
    Unless I recognise the number I never answer my phone. Unsolicited calls get their number blocked pronto from my missed calls list after I’ve looked up the number. 
    I’m not downloading some app to tell me some random has a sniffle.

    Dipsy got a reaction from JackieO in Neil Ferguson   
    He hasn’t resigned because he’s crap at his job but because he couldn’t keep it in his pants.

    American big pharma do not want cures. They want continuous consumption of expensive drugs for chronic conditions.

    Dipsy reacted to Melchett in Is Greta happy yet?   
    No, I reckon not. From my encounters with people like her I reckon she’ll find something else to be unhappy about.

    Dipsy got a reaction from MvR in The lockdown - no driving   
    Yes much busier. I had to use the pedestrian crossing in our town today rather than just walk straight across road. There’s also more people out exercising. My daughter and small group of friends are rotating around each other’s gardens of an evening, they are bored witless and realising that social media is no substitute for meeting up in person.

    Dipsy reacted to Mental Floss in The "Nothing is going to change so shut it please" thread   
    Er some will. Probably not enough to make a difference but I will be doing all in my power to retire within the next 5 years. Previously I was considering going to 65ish. However, assuming this thing doesn't off me in the next six months I'm fucked if I'm working any longer than I need to. My plans will be a much smaller life, but doing things I like. I find I'm easily pleased. A fishing rod, a bike and a camera. Pretty much enough as the wife is still up for dalliances..... 
    I have realised that I fucking hate what my work has become. I used to work with grey men who moved slowly but considered their actions. Now I work with a bunch of technology obsessed spivs who have no idea of what they want to achieve. "It's digital innit!".... 
    I suspect the 6 months after "normal" returns will be a fucking nightmare for people like me. It'll be like New Years eve every day. All the amateur drinkers will be out and about because they feel like they should be and all the socially minded wonks will be fucking hugging everyone in sight. I'll be hiding for as long as humanly possible.
    The sky will once again be full of planes flying people to places they don't need to be for very little money. Living near Heathrow will once again become like living under an aerial motorway. We'll be back to "Yah! went to Riga for Hugo's stag do. It was epic! Rupert is still out there banging some stripper...."
    Finally we'll be reminded at every turn that the NHS, staffed by hero migrant workers absolutely shows diversity is indeed our strength and more diversity (less whiteys) would make us even stronger.

    Portion control. Use a smaller plate, they have been getting larger of the last few decades. You can cut calories easily by just serving up a bit less for every meal. Eat more fat and protein - fills you up.

    Dipsy reacted to Austin Allegro in Todays BBC virus story   
    I've worked as a journalist for three decades.
    Eventually you learn to pick up on little details - sometimes just small words or acronyms even - that make you fairly sure the whole thing is bullsh*t.
    In this case it's the letters B B C in the headline.

    I got a “gin and tonic” scented candle from some relatives for my birthday, what’s wrong with actual bloody gin and tonic? I now asked for Amazon vouchers.
