    Ooh, I've not even had a moment to vote so glad I'm not too late.

    Lots of great entries this week but my vote goes to @cyclotron3k - Umbrella corporation.

    One of the first things my phd supervisor taught me was to treat words like “obviously” “clearly” etc as flags for unsubstantiated waffle when reviewing academic papers, or marking student essays. Works pretty well as a rule of thumb :-)

    Take a photo during the week (to match the theme) and then post photo in this thread along with the themes hashtag before midnight Sunday.

    Huh? Sorry perhaps you meant to reply to someone else? I made no claim that the government should make cyclists’ mental health a top priority. I asked a question in good faith.

    People in this thread have made the claim that people’s once daily exercise activity should be limited to one hour, and my interpretation is that some people think that this advice is official government advice.

    I went for a 2 hour run today following social distancing guidelines and I don’t want to be doing the wrong thing or putting anybody at risk. So, I’m just trying to ascertain whether this 1hour exercise limit is something that has been advised by public health professionals (in which case I’m happy to trust them but I’d like to see that advice myself). Or whether this limit is simply what some people on the internet think other people should do.

    If it’s the latter, that’s fine. My personal opinion is that the government reaction has been slow and insufficient throughout this crisis, so I’ve no inherent reason to doubt that these particular guidelines are similarly deficient. However, I’m still going to ask to see the evidence behind these claims if for no other reason than be because I’m interested and want to be informed to the best of my ability.

    If there is no advice and there is no evidence then shrug I’m sure we can happily move along.

    Genuine question... lots of people on here seem to be het up about more or less than an hour. Can anyone point me in the direction of government advice, or official public health source that states this?

    Thanks all. Given the news, the only theme I can think of is #lockdown. Let's see what lockdown looks like to you.

    Bit of a delay there. Looks like we had #foreground a while ago

    Bugger... sorry. I thought I checked but clearly not competently.
