  1. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    The metaphors are more mixed than you think!
  2. The vaccines | AZ approved in UK - Pfizer/Moderna rollout underway

    :lol: I get the sense you really enjoy posting bad news re the EU! Wouldn’t be too worried about this tbh. I remain to be convinced it’s a good vaccine. At the very least we need a better idea how it should be dosed. Hopefully have more data by the time we start injecting.
  3. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    Hang in there. Doesn’t feel like but we’ve got the cnut on the ropes. All pandemics end and this one is heading towards the end now.
  4. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    Analysis of 8% of deaths.
  5. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    Well that’s terrific. The gift that keeps on giving. Data on which that claim is based seems sketchy though.
  6. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    Are you still shitting on about ‘scaremongers’? Really? With ITUs up and down the country absolutely screwed, thousands dying every day doctors and nurses at the end of their tethers? At what point will you ever accept the real villains here have been the people down-playing the severity of...
  7. The vaccines | AZ approved in UK - Pfizer/Moderna rollout underway

    At the very least, if my immunology prof from Uni is anything to go by, you could be appearing on Tv/radio on an almost daily basis from start to finish of the next pandemic!

    Actually HPV vaccine works better than infection at giving you immunity. Although I think that’s down to a fairly unique way it evades your immune system, rather than a waning response.
  9. The vaccines | AZ approved in UK - Pfizer/Moderna rollout underway

    I’m not actually sure. The effectiveness of the vaccine tends to correlate with the effectiveness of natural immunity. Hence you only catch measles once and only need to be vaccinated against it once. While you need to be vaccinated against influenza multiple times and can catch it every year...
  10. Post match vs Liverpool

    @Bilbo :(
  11. Bruno Fernandes | 2020/21 Performances

    They made an interesting observation about Bruno on Second Captains. His shooting from outside the box is unusually accurate. Consistently picks out a corner or works the keeper. Even when he misses the target it’s only ever narrowly wide. What makes it interesting is how often he strikes a pass...
  12. The vaccines | AZ approved in UK - Pfizer/Moderna rollout underway

    Music to my ears. It’s looking more and more like immunity is short lived and variable but there does seem to be a trend towards second and subsequent bouts being minor. Which is exactly what you’d hope for. This fecking virus has become so ridiculously contagious that eradication might be off...
  13. The vaccines | AZ approved in UK - Pfizer/Moderna rollout underway

    How sick is she compared to her first bout?
  14. Premier League Fixtures 16th - 23rd

    I like it when it makes his face look like this.
  15. Premier League Fixtures 16th - 23rd

    Feck. Just realised how conflicted I am about this. Obviously want Liverpool to drop points but if they don’t beat Burnley it makes our draw with them look a lot worse in hindsight. Buzz wrecker.
