China have banned the eating of wild animals now haven't they. Just regular domesticated food sources like pork, beef and such. So next time someone in China sees some rare subterranean flying rat donkey that looks quite delicious.. REFRAIN!

I used an M16 when I was there. Always thought I'd be handy with a gun. I was not.

They don't have a full load in the ammo so it doesn't break any tourist shoulders but it's a fun way of spending half a weeks wages in 30 seconds!

All international travel now cancelled at work. That’s my trips to Poland and Greece down the pan too. 

Well, there's always a silver lining...

Yeah it was £1 per bullet if I remember right. Quickly adds up!

Rainhill School has just had a class come back from skiing in Italy and haven’t isolated them. Looking on the Guardian website today the advice is don’t isolate unless someone presents with symptoms. 
 

So that’s the whole school infected then.

 

Just nature’s way of finding a response to overpopulation.

 

Anyway, odds of 1.3% against. I’ll take those.

My old school. That’s me a goner. They are just trying to derail our title bid. I’ll post the match threads from my death bed.

The Ireland v Italy game being off is absolutely ridiculous in my opinion. Screen the players and staff on the way out of or into the country and stop all away travel. 
 

Inter are playing in the UEFA Cup behind closed doors tomorrow night, although not perfect, it’s better than cancelling completely.

For an AK-47?

 

That's an insane markup. I borrowed a friend's SKS (the civilian version of the AK) to hunt deer one time, I think I bought ammunition for it for $0.20/round or so. Although I suppose anything they're selling to tourists is going to have a pretty hefty markup. Were you firing it on full-auto? That's illegal to own in the States; I can imagine it would get very expensive very quickly at those prices.

 

On the virus thing, the US experts (well, the ones who aren't approaching the virus as if the main issue is the effect on the stock market, and thus Trump's political chances, that is) are saying it's basically inevitable at this point. No chance of preventing it from spreading across the globe.

Definitely enough to get started.

 

I think the requirements of having a woman wrestler is a good shouts.
 

I do think tag teams could cause a few arguments though, for example, what if somebody already had Rock or Mankind and then somebody picks Rock ‘N Sock as the tag team? Or somebody picks The Rockers then somebody has already picked Shaun Michaels etc etc?

It was an M16 and no not automatic - I'm no expert in these matters but it was one bullet at a time. I'm guessing they'd fixed it so it was that way? You could use what I thought were automatic weapons but as you say the mark up for tourists was high so £1 per bullet would put some damage on the wallet. It was mostly Americans there who I guess had money to burn. 

 

Anyway, using my gun skills can I shoot the coronavirus?

I think it looks like it's a pandemic now and that it's too late to stop the spread, but they're fearing calling it a pandemic.

Stop trying to blame pandas.

    • Coronavirus: Premier League plan to restart season branded unworkable as clubs eye solution   Plans to put players under lockdown for a month to get the season finished have been branded unworkable – because clubs are too picky. The hotel quarantine plan is one idea mooted for Friday's next round of talks between the Premier League, EFL, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association.     In a bid to conclude the season, one proposal is to squeeze remaining games into a condensed time frame in June, behind-closed-doors, with players kept in isolation to protect them from the risk of contracting coronavirus. Stadiums, hotels and training facilities would undergo a “deep clean”, with the players under strict quarantine, to enable the season to be completed by mid-July.   But Christian Machowski, whose company ESEM specialises in travel management for top clubs across Europe, believes the plan is unrealistic, because of the particular demands of the elite teams when it comes to hotels and training facilities.   “There are so many factors that come into play," said Machowski. “When clubs are looking to book hotels, one of the chief issues is what is an acceptable time to drive to a stadium? "Teams don't want to be stuck on a bus for 45 minutes to an hour, travelling to a game. “Everybody wants the best for their team, but there's only a small number of elite hotels that are suitable. “For example, there are two or three hotels in London where all the teams tend to stay when they play there. “To find a venue where 20 teams can find facilities up to the required standard is just not workable."   “In terms of training facilities, teams would also want to be as a close as possible, so that would present problems. “Then you would have to quarantine the same hotel staff for three or four weeks. “And if one team picked up an infection, whether it's a player or member of staff, that's the end of the tournament.   “It's not about teams staying in luxury, it's complicated because the infrastructure is so finely tuned for clubs in terms of what they need.”   Brighton have voiced their opposition to the proposal for a single-city Premier League finale. Officials at the club have major reservations due to concerns over hotel accommodation, the number of pitches required and the intense fixture schedule.   Chief executive Paul Barber also has concerns about even discussing a return to football while the coronavirus casualty rate around the country soars. “As creative as we want to be, people are losing their lives,” said Barber. “This is a serious, serious situation. We're totally driven towards completing the season but, at the moment, it is tough to talk about it.”   Machowski, whose company has handled almost 500 European games and training camps for top clubs over the past 24 years, reckons the number of teams involved also makes the plan impossible to pull off.   “You could maybe get away with it in the Champions League, for example, with a mini-tournament, because you're dealing with fewer teams,” said Machowski.   “But here you're talking about 20 teams and there's so much at stake. It's not like a pre-season tournament where there's a trophy at the end. “This is about titles, about relegation, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League, so no-one should be able to complain that they missed out because maybe the hotel, training facilities, travel or food wasn't right. “So it's not really workable, for so many different reasons.”   https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/coronavirus-premier-league-plan-restart-21789901
    • I think this could be an interesting summer for fees. I don't think Seville would pay that, but I suspect there may be less money kicking around in the game because of the virus and I reckon there'll be some clubs in distress and needing to sell, so there'll be a few bargains about. I know there's a lot of money kicking round in the game, but so many clubs carry debt and that can be ok when cashflow is good, but even if all sponsorship and TV money come through, there'll be loads of fare receipts lost and a likely late start to next season, so another delay in cash coming in. 
    • I get it (I think!). I think sky and the PL probably row all the time. I think the PL won't have been even a little surprised sky want to play it. It may sour the relationship, but to me it would show some immaturity from the PL if it did. I think people are used to taking opposite points of view in business and when it's done, you just have to move forward. There's nothing to be gained by looking back. And as I say, if there is any doubt in any of the boards at PL clubs that sky are right here, it's the fact it's not just sky, it's all the sponsors. I reckon once they acknowledge they have to play the games (which I think they already have), their only focus will be getting 19/20 done so they can start 20/21 and get the next tranche of TV and sponsorship money. They know they're not in control of when fans come through the gates, so the closest thing they can control is finding a way to get games on TV and get the cash rolling.
