    Someone else had a concrete ceilings saga, maybe @Dammit ?

    At 17.5mm isn't it the kind of blunt spike you could just throw a sturdy coat over?

    What happens if you then have a fire and some sort of inspector starts digging? Could you end up uninsured?

    opinions about the Taser being a different weight and colour

    Having no interest in weapons of any sort, I always assumed that a Taser was operated in a completely different way - ie not a handgrip and a trigger. I'm surprised how 'gun-like' they are. It seems like a bit of a design flaw for a device intended to be non-lethal, not to be a different shape and require a different action.

    True, I'll give it to the end of the week and report. Seems a bit trivial, but data is data.

    Pretty sure a doc, but it was very smooth and almost painless at the time (I get flu jabs most years and they're a lot worse, apparently I'm not very good at relaxing my muscles so I was making a special effort!). It's a slight ache that turns into a sharper pain if I use that muscle in certain positions. Just seems odd that it hasn't gone away yet.

    I had my first vaccine (AZ) almost 4 weeks ago. My arm still hurts. It's not a big deal but it's noticeable and certain movements make it really hurt. Should I report it? Or, no big deal and it's just a bruised muscle taking its time to heal.

    Annoyingly all the ECGs I have done, even with hard, max heart rate efforts have come back completely clear.

    I had atrial fibrillation and a couple of 24h ECGs came back normal, it's only because one time my GP heard something momentarily off that they believed me at all. On a 72h one it finally showed up and they took interest. I had a similar diagnosis of "it isn't affecting your quality of life, so just keep an eye on it" - until a couple years later my dad's similar condition worsened such that he could no longer have an ablation and had to have a pacemaker fitted - at that point they decided I should have an ablation. (None of this is covid-related though - this was several years ago)

    Amazing woman and life story. There's been a bit of that info in the Phillip obits but far from all.
