Wonderful views

Of the apocalypse!

Had to google SHTF assuming it was a highly technical term…


The technical term is faecal interaction with rotary blades

Nice of them to mention the (CW deaths) 1300 people who died today obviously as a direct consequence of chilling after work and not as a result of the government dragging their feet for the zillionth time

Sorry if I have missed this, but are we to assume the Brazilian variant is more worrying than the South African and UK?

:man_shrugging: Think like all of the variants it’s a lack of knowledge right this second.


Hopefully. They’ve moved quicker with Brazil though right? I only heard about it this morning.

I saw an article about it a few days ago and something, might have been further up the page about it being quite interesting that all the new mutations are doing similar things. Someone with an understanding beyond pub level will probably be able to explain it better.


Mostly it puts weight behind the point that strict, rapid containment of the virus is extremely important because if it’s allowed to propagate in the population then it will continue to mutate, and some of those mutations will be notable, such as these three variants that are currently in the news. It doesn’t mean that if it sticks around long enough it will get super-powerful (in fact, the trend is for diseases to decrease in lethality and become endemic but ‘weaker’ over time) but it makes the response harder because each variant has its own quirks that have to be dealt with.


Ah oh


In the case of the nuclear bunker, the penthouse is the deepest underground.

Yeah, the risk areas mentioned are work and home (if he lives with other people), not being on the street!


Of course Mullins is going to be the employer to shout the quiet bit out at the press. :+1:

I foresee a number of tribunals in his future
