    COVID-19

    Yeah, and the lockdown probably prevented hundreds of thousands. We'd be in a much worse position if we'd stayed open and vaccinated than we would if we'd locked down and not vaccinated.

    He's absolutely right. The lockdown is the main reason cases and deaths have been driven down. The vaccine is what will keep them from going back up.

    COVID-19

    The thing J&J and AZ have in common is the method of delivery - both use an adenovirus that has been genetically modified to contain the covid spike protein. The adenovirus itself cannot infect human cells or replicate, these clots seem to have more in common with a rare allergic reaction to it than that. I wouldn't be surprised if the Sputnik and Ebola vaccines had similar side effects, and that when these rare clots have happened in the past they could have been triggered by normal adenovirus infections (it causes colds, no-one gets tested for those) but not linked to them.

    These numbers are amazing. Much higher than I was expecting.

    There's shitloads to do and it has the best places to eat in the country. Honestly, it's worth the trip just for Borough Market.

    Fuck I miss America. Used to visit one of those cities at least once a month. Not planning on leaving the UK anytime soon. Fancy a few days in the Lakes, London, and Edinburgh later this year, though.

    COVID-19

    Long term issues from drugs develop over time from repeated use. You don't do coke once and then your septum spontaneously falls out ten years later. Liver cirrhosis comes from constant drinking, not a single pint. In the case of the vaccine, it doesn't stay in the body more than a couple of days, and people aren't hammering it non-stop. We're only looking for acute side effects because it's not inside you for long enough to do anything a couple of weeks after you take it.

    I'm not sure what you would expect another nine years to achieve. The Astrazeneca vaccine trial had over 30,000 participants, which is the average for vaccine trials. Blood clots have an incidence of 1 in 250,000. The clotting is such a rare complication that no clinical trial in history would have discovered it.

  10. It feels like they used up a lot of the usual suspects in earlier series, before they realised it was going to be long running, and now they're having to ration the bigger names. Unfortunately that leaves us with sitcom actors and lesser known comedians who can be very hit or miss.
  11. Who exactly do you mean by the "liberal media", other than The Guardian?
  12. It's rounders, it's not really a physically demanding sport. Kind of like how test cricket requires five full days of play for a game.
