  • Like people who start yet another trite thread on Covid-19 forums,
    or people who shame other for interpreting the (ambiguous) guidance in a way that differs to their understanding

  • Like people who start yet another trite thread on Covid-19 forums

    The home hairstyle thread is all we really need

  • i don't get the obsession with numbers

    "oooh look how many people died in france today"

    "ooooh that's a 34% increase on china's number, per capita, at the same point after patient zero"

    "oooooh get us"

    "from this we can extrapolate something"

    "mmmmmmm isn't it?"

    morbid weirdos

  • You mean lfgss stat nerds won't be the ones to save us all :-(

  • 2.5% increase in sass per day, multiplied by a factor of 3 in saltyness, divided by a coefficient of outright snark... oh shit. It's a pandemic!

  • im determined to come out the other side of this as the very cleverest little poster on here and all the other boys will know it

  • I’m at home, exasperated, on top of the homekeeping stuff I’m trying to keep one kid on top of his homework and the todler from destroying everything so that my wife has a fair chance to work a little.
    And I’m so bloody pissed off by everyone who is bored or suddenly have time to draw or organise crap or whatever!

  • Pinnacle of my work day was making a lemon drizzle cake and a steak pie.

    You have my utterly meaningless, nutrition-free sympathies however.

  • Who's fault is that, breeder?

    For you, I promise not to draw anything. I may accidentally learn a new skill but I very much doubt it.

    I guess this should go here, all round my ends so local Facebook groups etc. are full of people saying they shouldn't have gone out and others saying RIP, they're paying their respects, shitty situation all round.

  • I'm not normally someone to cry 'Darwin awards', but there are exceptions ...

    The unnamed 20-year-old woman told NRK that “everything was great fun for several hours”, but then suddenly the lights went out and the music stopped. “Someone had broken into the room where the generators were,” she said.

    “As we entered, the gas hit us in the face. We saw three boys there unconscious. We got very dizzy. It was very scary, we had to keep running out because we were fainting ourselves, but we had to try and pull them out little by little because we didn’t know how long they had been there.”

    One of the event’s organisers, who was also hospitalised, told the broadcaster that the generators had been placed in a room with an air shaft and a metal door that had been closed and sealed off with bin liners and duct tape.

    “It’s easy to be wise afterwards,” he said. “I don’t regret the event itself, but we could have had someone look after the door: if it hadn’t been opened, the event would technically have been a success. You can look at it as irresponsible, but right there and then it seemed like a good idea.”

    This. Six months later and I'm fucking exhausted.

    Today I was standing outside the vet with a mask on, waiting with my cat. Some twit started shouting abuse at me for wearing a mask and being paranoid, one of the sheep. Normally I'd just brush this off and ignore, because there are a lot of local dickheads where I live, but I swear this time I was literally inches away from dropping everything and giving this guy a fucking pasting.

  • where did that happen? London seems to me better than a lot of places at dealing with existential threats / lifestyle adaptation / social awareness.

  • I had someone start ranting at me about the distance that people passed each other on the street (it's too far, wake up scheeple etc). He obviously thought I passed at the correct distance as he said 'I knew'.

    Looking forward to the media and Tories weaponising this at the next election and it'll be about anti-maskers/truthers.
    I presume election 2029 will be the flat earther election.

  • Egham/Staines border. Yeah I'm not in London any more and around here has more than its share of idiots. Generally the local tracksuit wearers who seem to have a problem with anyone who has an actual job or appears educated in any way.

  • Egham/Staines border

    runnymedelyf.

    i fucking hate that place with the heat of a thousand suns.

  • Wasn’t aware west of london was so warm!

    Heat kills the virus so no need for any protective measures.

  • Happy Man pub tho.

  • Seems pretty quiet in here?
    Is this a sign that, apart from the occasional wake up sheeple weirdo, you don't really see them?
    We in Germany have masses of covidiots, a terrible mix of conspiracy nutters, hippies, fascist and I don't know what.
    Last weekend's protest in Leipzig had up to 20'000 people all of them with no masks or distance, police looked helpless or probably didn't want to disturb their pals.
    It's quite scary to be honest.

  • We have a full spectrum of Covidiots.
    Possibly the worst for spreading the virus are those who have (purposefully?)
    forgotten about social distancing.
    They might queue properly in a supermarket because the 2m markings are still on the floor,
    but brush past you while shopping,
    or when out as a pair, they split to either side of an aisle or footpath giving less than a metre
    between them.

  • Yes, of course you will have your share of idiots. And I agree that the casual I don't care type is bad.
    But do you have an organised movement with groups that, for example, do stuff like public transport without masks and chanting "masks off"?

  • Haven't heard of that, but in London we have had unauthorised gatherings:
    Central London,
    an authorised pre-2nd Lockdown protest,
    and one in Manchester.

  • it's pretty much impossible to stay 2m away from people in a shop at all times though
