    My brother has also bought in to the "don't drive anywhere" thing.
    I'm angry as I just think he's being spinless and cuck-ish but hey maybe he's just being as careful as possible.
    We aren't mixing with other people; but he'd pick me up once a week and we'd go to parents house for a few hours.
    Now he's stopping that even. Because the police say we aren't allowed to, it's not a necessary journey, what would we say if the polce stopped us blah blah.
    Bear in mind my parents are still in the shops more than once a week, and are still going to the pharmacy in person. And the proposed solution is that they come over to where I live and we go for a walk together around the area I live whilst keeping a 2 meter distance from me.....which just exposes them to all the people you'd meet out and about in my area as well as their own!
    Whole things comical.

    1984 - Lockdown and Beyond
     
    There is a well known and well held view that when making a film it is never possible to match the book and get all the nuances that can be contained in the written word. The picture created in the mind is far superior to that created using celluloid. The cinematic version of 1984 with Richard Burton released in 1984 was a good film but still, it could not do justice to the cold grey dark dystopia of Orwell masterpiece.
    Well finally a proper ‘cinematic’ version of George Orwell’s classic 1984 has or rather is being made. No, it’s not another film but a fully interactive live-action version with all people of the UK taking part. In the opening scenes the police have been given wide-ranging powers to stop and fine people for walking about. It is like the old stop-and-search, but on steroids and the police love it, they are very happy with all the power and are just waiting for their new uniforms from Hugo Boss.
    Next we see neighbours and children being encouraged to report ‘un-good’ behaviour to the authorities so the enemies of the state can be punished. In a modern twist to the Orwell classic each individual’s movements are tracked by a mobile app to, as the Ministry of Truth says ‘ensure all citizens are safe’. Further laws are be passed to ensure everybody adopts the more progressive new ‘right-think’ standards that encourage people to consider and moderate what they are thinking and posting on the Internet. These thoughts and posts may not be illegal, at the moment, but if they do not fall in line with ‘right-think’ standards the individual needs to be made aware of their bad thinking. Society will benefit as bad thinking, or ‘un-right-think’ could lead to hate crime in the future.
    A highlight of the film is the two-minute ‘NHS Love Clap’ to honour the country’s saints. It is a nightly event and participants are closely monitored, at first non-participants will be warned. If they are persistent in their non-clapping, which is a clear sign of ‘un-right-think’, they will be sanctioned or shot. The new permanent law of Social Distancing is designed to bring society closer together; after all we are working together to establish the New World Order with One World Government and No Borders. We are all fighting the common enemy, Covid-19 and there is a firm five-year plan called the Kalergi plan in place.  We together as one people will finally rid the world of all division and all hatred and herald in a new era of freedom and peace for all.
    And remember comrades all colours, creeds and religions are equal, but some colours, creeds and religions are more equal than others.

    1. when you are disallowed a physical social life with other like-minded humans and all attendant supporting venues are closed
    2. when places of worship are shuttered without a single peep
    3. when you cannot even gather in any numbers to protest this
    4. when freedom of movement is restricted or disallowed entirely
    5. when the rules are murky and likely to be enforced on a case-by-case basis according to the whim of any officious prick one is likely to encounter and
    when all this has been implemented globally, in one fell swoop, without a single definitive word from ‘authority’ on when it is ever going to end then
    we’ve been conquered.

    Not me either.
    DOSBODS was months & months ahead of the game. I was sceptical at first, but the hive mind was right.
    It's of great credit to Spunko that he's created one of the few places on the internets where you can say whatever the hell you want - and not be censured.
    Thank you, Spunko.

    Unless you're immunocompromised you'll have antibodies forever. With most viruses having had a virus will give you some immunity to similar viruses so you'll get a milder disease the second time around. The problem with coronaviruses is if you get infected with a similar virus (i.e. one you had 6-12 months ago which has mutated slightly in the meantime) then the virus can use the not quite perfect antibodies to infect immune system cells that are trying to destroy it. Traditional vaccines just aren't going to work as everyone would need to get vaccinated every time a new strain appeared otherwise being vaccinated against the previous strains will probably make the disease worse. Have a read up about Dengue fever and antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) if you're interested in the topic.

    Panic-bought too many bananas and couldn't eat 'em all? Now slightly past their best? Fear not! for I bring you ...
    TONA's (stolen) foolproof 3-ingredient Banana loaf recipe!
    Mash 5 medium (overripe) bananas, add 1 tin of sweetened condensed milk, fold-in 285g of sieved self-raising flour, pour into a buttered loaf tin and bake in a pre-heated oven @180C for 40-60m (until a skewer comes out clean). Careful not to burn the top (cover with tinfoil hat if getting too dark). Cool for 5m and turn out onto a tray. Slice and serve warm with butter (if not on a quarantine diet) and a nice cuppa tea.
    Freezes nicely too!

    Turned Out Nice Again reacted to Virgil Caine in Pandemic coming? - Coronavirus April 2020 (Part 3)   
    The media hyperventilating about testing in the UK is strangely reminiscent of what happened during the “shell famine” in 1915 during the Great War. The press have picked up on a valid issue in that the Uk governments and the NHS testing regime has been poor. However, it is clear from the embarrassing exchange between Peston and the virologist that most of the media only have the vaguest idea of the point of carrying out the tests. In the early stages of the pandemic better testing for the virus might have been able to control the initial outbreak by detecting, tracing and isolating those infected particularly at points of entry to the UK but once the virus got established in the wild just running lots of tests as Italy has done does not appear to have much impact on it once established. It’s main use would be to detect infected health and social care workers and to track geographical hotspots. It won’t make any difference to how many of those with Covid19 are going to die. The latter is down to the availability of suitable treatment which is really a measure of the respective health care systems. In fact once the UK government went for the lock  down option then mass testing outside the health care system is relatively pointless since pretty much everyone is being socially isolated to a greater or lesser degree regardless of whether infected or not. Testing will become more important once the lockdown is being lifted as it is then it will be important to be able to detect those who have had the virus but recovered from those who are infected and those who have not  yet caught it. And when that happens the issue will still remain of the abject failure to test and quarantine people at the point of entry to the UK and that is an issue those who are critical of Boris Johnson and his government have not addressed because it is going run completely against their globalist agendas.

    Given the amount of lamentable "research" out there and without seeing the actual paper to judge you can safely ignore the hearsay and just use your common sense.
    Frankly, I'm getting a bit weary of anti-mask propaganda clearly designed to reserve PPE for the medical services, however laudable a goal that might be - if unrealistic - since the supply chains will not be competing.
    Masks for the general public make sense  in at least 3 respects:

    - impeding/ blocking aerosols (from or to the wearer)
    - preventing reflexive touching of the mouth and nose
    - as a social signal to support distancing.
    If they aren't being used properly then educate people.
    EDIT: I disinfect my masks by giving them a spray with surgical spirit and laying them on top of a hot radiator for a day. I also put my outer coat and trousers over the bathroom rad (outside-in). I think that's sufficient for the level of virus I'm likely to encounter in Lidl.

    Is banging on about fake news and how you shouldn't pass on false information about the virus.
    FFS, the way they report virus deaths is fake IMHO. They report thousands of deaths each day and the clear implication is they are dying of the virus. However the deaths are of people that are generally on their last legs and just happen to have the virus.
    A month into this virus and they still haven't compared this years deaths to previous years. It's beyond shit. One of the best funded broadcasters in the world and they don't answer questions a school kid would ask.

    Most people don't have to confront the full extent of the normal numbers in their face every day and being told how horrific they are.  Normally they just happen in the background as being a natural accepted thing and it only impacts on individuals if someone close cops it.  They don't know about the totals.
    At moment the media are putting the CV19 numbers in the faces of viewers and listeners and even a few hundreds of deaths are presented as a major national disaster - every day along with press conferences and all the rest.  They don't do that for normal deaths probably because it doesn't fit an agenda - whatever the agenda is with CV19 apart from fighting a new virus. 
    If bbc went on about the 2,000 dying each and every day in tones of doom, recrimination and national disaster then the "mobs" would likely be lighting up their torches and setting off to the citadel doors.
