Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

Somone once asked Putin, "Would a woman ever be President of Russia?" "No", he replied, "Why not?", they said.

"Because I am not a woman", said Putin.

Re: Is Trump Mad?

No matter how hard "the Trump is mad routine" performs, it pales into Insignificance when compared to the frothing pseudo religious zeal of many of his holier than thou haters. Trump is a narcissist but far from mad, he knows exactly what he is doing and how the Not in My Name! - wailing ...

Re: Flu 'jab'

I had the jab 10 days ago and so far no flu like side effects, which usually show themselves a few days later.
Took 3 grams of vitamin C a week either side of injection - this may or may not be the reason why I felt fine for a change.

Re: Is Trump Mad?

So Trump now has a disease which doesn't exist. I have to admit that my rather uncharitable response (as someone who does not believe in deities) was "Please let there be a god and let that god be a vengeful one." I then thought of the adage "Be careful when you wish for something......

Re: An alternative to antibiotics?

Phage therapy is a fascinating subject and will probably be more enthusiastically embraced in the West , now that we have abused antibiotics to the point of failure and harm in many cases. . For mild gum infections I have used sodium ascorbate and xylitol, salt water can also be used but is more abr...

Re: Wasps

The present species of bees and wasps beyond both being flying stinging insects of a similar shape are very different to each other. They're very closely related, as above. So closely that there is no monophyletic definition of wasps that doesn't include both ants and bees. Jonathan PS: In US Engli...

Re: Wasps

Wasps are to Bees as Cows are to Pigs, not closely related at all Wasps aren't a single group. But if my arm was twisted and context wasn't allowed I'd say that wasps are closely related to bees, and cows are closely related to pigs. I think it is likely that some wasps eventually evolved into the ...

Re: Wasps

Wasps are to Bees as Cows are to Pigs, not closely related at all.
I think it is likely that some wasps eventually evolved into the various species of ants. One of the clues being that some primitive species of ants still retain the sting.

Re: Can you recommend a fitness tracker/watch

I bought a Fitbit for over £100 two years ago and it was clunky, inaccurate and generally rubbish. Maybe the recent models are much improved - I don't know. A few months ago I bought an Honor Band 5 for £27, if you hunt around you can get them cheaper. This cheap fitness tracker, is light, unobtrusi...

Re: Fox News UK?

That is about the most stupid comment I've heard from a supporter of brexit. I bet you think Q-Anon beliefs are true as well. I had to google Q-Anon. This only illustrates how bizarre and out of touch your perception of what is happening to the world is, if you form your world view from imagining s...

I am talking about two places I know well. You seem to be claiming I'm wrong. To do that implies you think you have knowledge of the cities.

Re: Breaking International Law

Sovereignty when it is threatened transcends international law - as it should.

It's a bit bleeding obvious. :roll:
