  1. Had a near emotional breakdown earlier because of my country’s useless Covid response. Feeling less anxious now. What will be will be.

  2. I hate the incompetent politicians we have to deal with over here. We're going to be trapped in a constant cycle of lockdown, open everything so the virus can run rampant, lock down, open everything with thousands of vulnerable people dying needlessly as a result. I never knew just how little value our lives had until now.

      Because of all this, I’m sure it’s made everypony realise what they had prior to that virus. :( I’m glad there is good vaccine news coming out though. :please: I hope it works. :)

       

  3. No idea. "I hear you're a racist now, Father. Should we all be racist now?"
  4. Jimi Hendrix died 50 years ago today.

      Yeah. He’d be 77 if he was still alive.

  5. Accidentally touched my cactus and had to pull several spines out with tweezers. Not a fun start to my day.

  6. It looks like Europe is falling back into Covid hell. I don’t know how I’m going to get through this a second time.

      Let’s get rid of this stupid thing! There’s a lot of positive vaccine news so I’m hoping they’ll be coming soon. :kindness:

  7. I don't know that is but he looks evil and he has scary looking teeth.
  8. Pompeii definitely had more victims in the immediate event, but the effects of Chernobyl lasted for years. We’ll probably never know just how many people ended up with cancer or severe birth defects because of the Chernobyl disaster, but I’m certain it’s in the tens of thousands at the very least.
  9. I have a magazine that was printed in England during the First World War. It’s full of pictures and articles about how the war was progressing at the time. I also have an even older aeroplane magazine from 1911.
  10. I’m currently playing Ghost of Tsushima. Pretty awesome game so far!
  11. Thanks for the follow :D

  12. Oxford University in the UK is developing a vaccine which is in the final stage of trials. It probably won’t be approved for a couple of months in the best case scenario though. Even when it is, vaccinating millions of people will be a long process. The UK does have a very good level of test amounts compared to its total population, but there are problems with getting tests done, with some being made to travel miles and miles for it. Our contact tracing is also failing to reach a lot more people than we’d like. I don’t think things will get as bad as they did back in March and April (we were recording 900+ deaths daily at one point) but cases are undeniably rising. Schools have reopened too, which was always going to be a risky move. The government limited meetings to no more than six people yesterday and masks are required in most indoor spaces. All we can do is hope that the majority of people follow the rules.
  13. Albert Einsein is dead and Michael Rosen is a poet, not an engineer. Where do elephants go when they die?
