  1. I just heard the best news!! A friend I grew up with has been on a vent a little over a month due to covid. A week ago the docs were not giving much hope that he would get better. Today I learned that he's off the vent and trying to talk!!! I am crying happy tears!!

  2. When all this pandemic stuff is over, I still plan to wear a mask. It hides the perpetual look of annoyance I have for most people.

  5. They work much like a rain coat and a rain hat in the rain, yes a little water can get through, but it's better than wearing nothing. Trying to make excuses that we shouldn't wear them at all is like trying to make excuses we shouldn't wear rain coats at all in the rain. I don't know, I guess some people like getting soaked?

  6. He didn't like the casserole, and he didn't like my cake. He said my biscuits were too hard, Not like his mother used to make. I didn't make the coffee right, He didn't like my stew, I didn't fold his pants, The way his mother used to do. I pondered for an answer, I was looking for a clue. Then I turned around and smacked him, Just like his mother used to do.

  8. How, in God's name, does someone like that rise to such a position? If she'd treat a sick, elderly man like this, what WOULDN'T she do? I hope never to stand in front of a judge like that...for ANY reason.

  9. I'm glad they are petitioning to get rid of her. Why not try and do something to help him instead of shaming him. The man is sick, not a criminal.

  14. I was wondering how ‘masks don’t work’ fits in with the evidence they seem to have that the virus is spread in respiratory droplets. Even if basic masks don’t help with the smaller aerosol particles they must help reduce the risk if they catch (some of) the bigger droplets. If you can’t give up your 60 cigarettes a day then reducing the amount by half or more must decrease the risk, if not by half or more, then by some degree. Not a good analogy but the only one I could come up with on an empty stomach. Kitchen here I come.

  15. Quote "Although surgeons do wear masks to prevent their respiratory droplets from contaminating the surgical field and the exposed internal tissues of our surgical patients, that is about as far as the analogy extends." And if the other side wears the mask for same or simmilar reasons we, while not completle eliminate, minimize the danger. He put his own foot in his mouth. Surgeon. Ha. My a$$.

  16. As of today, as many as 70 per cent of covid patients in UK hospitals are primarily being treated for other problems. For example, the latest statistics from NHS England showed that in the East Midlands, only 533 (29 per cent) of the 1,817 people included in coronavirus hospital data were being treated primarily for the virus. In England overall, nearly half (47.9 per cent) of Covid patients were admitted to hospital for other conditions, but also tested positive. As a result of this, some scientists are calling for the scrapping of daily covid case updates because they are giving an inaccurate picture and also because people are becoming addicted to them. According to The Daily Telegraph: This week, it also emerged that the number of daily reported deaths is starting to diverge significantly from registered Covid deaths recorded by the Office for National Statistics. Sajid Javid has now admitted the dashboard figures are too high. https://richieallen.co.uk/70-of-covid-patients-in-hospital-primarily-there-for-other-reasons/ https://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/two-thirds-covid-patients-london-barts-nhs-trust-admitted-another-reason-b977725.html?itm_source=Internal&itm_channel=homepage_banner&itm_campaign=breaking-news-ticker&itm_content=5

  17. A split in a field in Scotland has revealed a bizarre underground blaze, which has left locals concerned. Footage shows a split in the ground which reveals red-hot burning rock and plumes of smoke in a field in Ayrshire in Scotland. Tom Paton, who filmed the footage, told The Herald: "It's concerning for wildlife and for people who go up there with their dogs because if you don't already know it's there then it isn't too obvious to see. "The smell is potent, but the actual hole in the ground is well hidden until you're right on it. https://www.ladbible.com/news/bizarre-underground-burning-rock-20220122 https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/19865636.patna-field-ayrshire-dad-concerned-lava-like-substance/

  26. I never watch Tucker Carlson. I don't have cable, don't watch FOX news, don't frequent their website. This video has kept coming up on my feed on YouTube the last few days every time I go to the site. It's on the main page, it's on the videos on the side of the screen when I'm watching something else so today I said, "Fine, I'll see what they're trying to show me" Turns out the video is about how some cities are handling the homeless crisis. My city it turns out has been buying brand new upscale condos for them. They showed each one and guess what? They are all on my street. One is a nearly completed building that went up two doors down from which they show the excellent view they are going to get. I'm thinking I need to buy a big dog.

  30. I don't care if you are Vaxxed or Unvaxxed. Can we stop preaching at each other and get on with normality? Life is tough enough as it is. We could also start being nice again, rather than being divided by everything. That would also be great! Spread some love; it's been difficult for all

  32. Three college professors were playing golf in a particularly hot day when they decided to make a bet. Whoever loses a round will remove an article of clothing. By the time they got to the 9th hole they were all completely naked. Just as they were about to wear clothes, a bus carrying a group of college students came around the bend. Two of the three professors grabbed their clothes and try to cover their naked body. The third one, however, just put his clothes over his face. After the bus passed the two professors asked the third one, “Why in the world would you cover your face? Have you no shame?” The professors replies, “I don’t know about your classroom but in my classroom EVERYONE knows my face!”
