  2. Think I was out of the country when Oasis rose to power so I can name maybe one of their songs. Whereas The Fall were such a feature of listening to John Peel.
  3. Yep. Could also add The Human League.

    The best war film is ......

    A Matter of Life and Death, or maybe The Cruel Sea.
  5. Something to be proud of, I would have thought.
  6. Worst was a Mini Dooper - diesel engine had a narrow power band so if you were not in the right gear it felt sluggish. Also a bit soulless. I've been really lucky otherwise with cars. Panda twinair 4x4 was great - a car with character. Smart ForTwo with more powerful engine was fun. Currently have a BMW i3 and that is amazing: impressive acceleration, brilliant handling and tiny turning circle - can't imagine going back to a petrol engine.

    Coronavirus

    But earlier you implied that since only one person in the large organisation you work for might have had covid-19 then this was a reason to doubt the danger. I work for a small organisation: one colleague has been very ill, her father died of it, and a ten year old was in hospital in a coma (he has recovered). From my perspective, anyone who suggests the media is exaggerating the danger is simply wrong.

    Coronavirus

    Yes, agree entirely - that 1% will be mostly grandparents and parents, which seems forgotten when people say "Oh, it's just 1%, flu is as bad", etc. With regard to German school children not having covid-19 antibodies, that might mean they had the virus 2 months ago and now no longer have the antibodies (I stress "might").

    Coronavirus

    Thanks for that - clearly sets out why the "kills just 1% of population" argument doesn't give the whole story.

    And don't forget https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jul/08/warning-of-serious-brain-disorders-in-people-with-mild-covid-symptoms and https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jul/12/immunity-to-covid-19-could-be-lost-in-months-uk-study-suggests

    The GF book thread

    I think the earlier ones are better - in the later books Butcher turns up the dial to 11 and it all gets a bit ridiculous (given it's a wizard who is a PI, etc).

    Bioshock or Boarderlandss?

    Never could get into Bioshock, which annoys me as most people rate it highly. I do love Borderlands but it is pure FPS.

    Sick of being Fat

    Almost finished reading "How not to diet" by Michael Greger - he's making no money from the book so he's not promoting any particular products. His website is here https://nutritionfacts.org/ This is long but covers much of the book https://nutritionfacts.org/audio/evidence-based-weight-loss/ Those of you on a keto diet really ought to listen to his podcast on it: https://nutritionfacts.org/video/are-keto-diets-safe/
