Re: Covid 19 outbreak - arguing about Stats (again)

However, I do have issues with the over-medicalisation of health. So the extraordinary spike in deaths recently (or “excess deaths”), is just a random fluctuation? I understand my own statement and I understand yours but not the connection between the two. Help please. He means this: 1. It wasn't d...

Re: Covid 19 outbreak - arguing about Stats (again)

Correct. Picked to take in winter flu. And yes 16% is significant but is it significant enough to shut the economy down for months and build up a national debt that will take generations to pay But, as you keep ignoring, this includes being in lockdown. If we didn’t have these measures, what do you...

Re: Cycling as an activity during the Covid 19 outbreak

Fine. I would support that. I support reaaonable measures. I don't support a blanket lockdown which makes me a criminal if I engage in a zero risk activity like driving a short distance and hillwalking alone. Or exercising alone more than once a day. Etc, etc. As I said above UK infections started ...

Re: C19 - Ending The Lockdown

Anyhow just typed flour into Ebay and there's loads for sale.

Re: C19 - Ending The Lockdown

No it’s what we’re being force fed.
Some believe the propaganda some don’t.

I’d love to know what evidence you think you have to make this assertion. Or is it just your ‘opinion’ which you are entitled to as much as the next man. :roll:

Re: C19 - Ending The Lockdown

An important article on Covid-19 and Evolution But an evolutionary approach suggests a different view. What if there are different versions of this coronavirus — some less deadly than others? All viruses mutate. Typically, a rapidly spreading virus tends to become less harmful as it changes because...

Re: C19 - Ending The Lockdown

Flour is hardly a rare commodity - almost every shop that sells food stocks the stuff. Er. I think you'll find there's a well known national shortage of flour for the public. I haven't seen it in a supermarket since before lockdown https://www.theguardian.com/food/2020/apr/14/grains-flour-shortage-...

Re: Covid-19 tracker installed itself on my phone!

It's easy to see if an app has been installed. Is there an icon on your phone display. Otherwise this sounds as if it is a scam & nothing to do with a Covid tracker.

Re: Covid 19 outbreak - arguing about Stats (again)

Guys. There is absolutely no point in arguing with the uc. You all know that he will never, ever, under any circumstances admit that he is wrong. It is bleedin' obvious what is happening to the world at the moment, telling him so will not matter because he cannot admit any other worldview but his ow...

Re: C19 - Ending The Lockdown

If you are implying that he wasn't seriously ill, then I don't think you know what you are talking about. No fan of Boris in any sense, but I have no doubt he needed to be in ICU. The wisdom of the internet never fails to amaze me.

I tried to email this directly to Daniel, but the email address wouldn't work. Hope he sees it here :) Hi Daniel, I’ve completed the questionnaire linked via Cycling UK forum as best as possible and had the same issues highlighted by others. For info, certainly for myself (maybe for others?) the ‘c...

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

My wife yelled from upstairs “Do you ever get shooting pains across your whole body like someone has made a voodoo doll of you and is stabbing pins into it?” Very concerned I yelled back “No”. “How about now?”she said.
