    The Daily Telegraph had instructions on washing your sex toys during the lockdown.

    What? How were Daily Telegraph readers cleaning them before the lockdown? Does Jeeves of Belgravia have an intimate services division?

    I've been considering starting an 'Unintended Consequences' thread for this kind of stuff.

    Road KSI stats is going to be an eye opener

    Took 15 minutes of very patient coaching down the phone to just open skype like normal.

    It's taken me 5 days to get mum using Skype, which included buying her a new iPad because she's too scared to call Apple support to get the old one working. And I still need to call her mobile first, then start the Skype call and talk her through picking up the Skype call

    Oh hai me too! It’s nasty isn’t it :(

    Had ABs last month, thought it was gone but it’s come back bigger and nastier.

    Got an ultrasound tomorrow to check the tender area and occasional stabbing pain in my side isn’t something horrendous. :(

    Are you on MacroBID? They messed up my digestion something awful. Just started them again so doing what I can to avoid with pre-biotic foods.

    UTI in the time of Coronavirus.

    I suspect the panic buying is all in the larger supermarkets rather than the local shops.

    That’s what we are seeing a mile or so away in Seven Sisters. Tesco’s and Sainsburys are low stock, the minimarts of West Green Road pretty well stocked still, though some gaps appearing.

    Truth be told, he's a fucking plonker. Spends all this time and money on snowboarding holidays and then spends the whole of it uncomfortable and cold because he wants to make some sort of point that nobody cares about.

    I spent a not-small amount on a 3 day freeride/off piste guiding package last year. The coach/guide had some very definite ideas about freeride culture which included shunning restaurants and buying microwave meal lunch each day in the spar in Avoriaz and eating it either sitting outside the shop, or inside on the concrete steps depending on weather. That’s an ok pose in your 20s but I’m a fat woman in my 40s, I looked like a bag lady who had raided a ski shop seconds bin.

    My sister, who recently started working at her local council, is now going to be trained to register deaths :-/

    Nice!

    Here’s me in Lagrave on my last day, at the exact moment I realised it had better be my last run ...

    Ick. My neighbour snapped his femur this season but avoided the sled, they dosed him with morphine or ketamine and heli’d him off. Anecdotally I’ve heard heli’s are used for a lot more than before because the rescue can charge a bigger whack on insurance (and fair play to them if it keeps them operating).

    I’ve not been sledded off myself but got skidooed down Blackcomb with a dislocated elbow. I did follow the sled down when my best mate did her ACL on a school trip back in the 80s, then we were driven to the hotel (not hospital) in the back of a teeny Renault. Teachers iced it and had her back on the slope a few days later! Did not go well :(.
