Hello all!

It's been a while, and not sure how active we are these days but I've had a few beers and stumbled across the link to this board in my favourites. I've also been banned from Twitter for a week so I need to get some kind of social media fix.

So, for old times sake  ... what's your favourite:

1: Calamity

2: Jane

3: Beer

4: Virus

5: Exit

6: Cube

7: Dogma

I'll go first:

1: A zombie apocalypse. It hasn't happened yet, but I've watched soooo many films about it that I feel ultra prepared. I've figured out the nearest source of water, how to get there from the roof tops, the best weapon I could grab and I've talked through the scenarios with my family. Everything is covered.

2: Jane Doe, John's much over looked wife. It must be horrible to be her - endlessly dead, and endlessly Jane.

3: San Miguel, it's right in front of me and I thought it was Spanish but then I learned it was from the Philippines. I tell a bit of a lie because ob draught it's Camden Hells, but from a can it's definitely San Miguel.

4: Cow Pox, far and away the best virus ever because of that mad English doctor that discovered vaccination against small pox by experimenting on his gardener's  son. Fun fact - the word for 'vaccine' comes from the Latin word for cow.

5: Left

6: Necker

7: Science when it becomes faith. It drives me nuts when anyone says 'the science says that ...'. Good scientists will never say anything unequivocally it's about investigation, testing theories and generally learning about the world. Science is based on doubt, not belief.

The latest election results in America have been one hell of a roller coaster over here.  Watching pundits skew outcomes to match their personal preferences, watching tally results change as votes are counted, hearing the 'logic' behind stopping the count. I am at once relieved and horrified.  My faith in humanity is still alive much in the same way Schrodinger's cat is still alive.

The next two months will be interesting to say the least.  How's tricks across the pond?

Well, I'm just going to post this last bit of odd trivia.

The United States of America has existed (1776 to 2020... just about 240ish years) for roughly the same length of time that Oxford University (first class was 1095) existed prior to the Aztec Empire being founded (1395 give or take... about 230 years later.)

Been a while.  How's everyone doing these days?  So far I'm one of the lucky ones.  No illness, I can work at home and the company I work for hasn't gone out of business yet.  Also, replaced my broken guitars with new guitars... so there's that.

Having had my sporadic trips to the gym over the last couple of years curtailed by the lock-down, I went and splashed out on a rowing machine and have turned the basement into a home gym

Major downside to that was cleaning out at least three decades worth of dust- even a CV cough had nothing on mine after that.  Still, at least people let me jump the queue at the supermarket  Big Grin 

The hope is that having splashed out a load of cash I can guilt trip my own fat lazy arse into actually making use of it, and not being able to go anywhere for a few weeks gives me an ideal opportunity to get into a bit of a routine.

Anyone else started doing something new that might last beyond the next few weeks?

BTW - I'd highly recommend trying out one of the PE with Joe sessions on YouTube to find out just how out of shape you are!  Half an hour of sheer fucking torture.

Just about to be told to stay home for 3 months, hiding in my bunker. Only got a couple of days to stock up. Need advice, what should I get?  Obviously toilet paper, paracetamol and hand sanitizer, but what else will I need?  Thinking lamp oil, batteries, solar charger, water purification kit, ammo, barbed wire and a shovel to dig trenches and/or bury any zombies that try to get in. Anything else?

Got plenty of whisky, anyone wants to join me, bring proof you are not unclean and maybe beer.

  On the road to impeachment

Strap in folks.  The Democrat controlled House will impeach, the Republican controlled Senate will acquit, and Trump will get re-elected because the GOP base will have been galvanized (barring something more than this Ukraine stuff).
