Interested to see what everyone on here thinks about...

Discarded gloves on the ground. rolleyes

Surely a person wearing gloves in order to touch possibly contaminated surfaces does so with one of two beliefs:

A) that the coronavirus will attach itself to the surface of the gloves

or

B) that the coronavirus will not be able to attach itself to the surface of the gloves at all.

If they believe A then they should know that the surface of the gloves has now become a contaminated surface and so both gloves should be disposed of properly so others don't come into contact with them.

If they believe B then why are they throwing away a pair of perfectly fine, resusable gloves? Why not just use those fuckers to wash the dishes as well? Forget the Marigolds! Just use these magic, permanently sterile, indestructible gloves! Or better still if one day they get haemorrhoids why not use these gloves to apply some ointment, the asshole breath smelling sons of bitches.

Your thoughts?

Passed my local one yesterday and it was open, with a big queue of customers outside. It was closed last week so possibly just re-opened yesterday.

Not as big as the queue as there was at McDonalds on its last opening day a few months back, that was just crazy, with a line of cars around the whole carpark and right down the road outside.

It’s when they block the main roads and junctions sat in their cars that grips me

So... any of our north of the border compatriots able to clarify Monica's statement at Holyrood today? I've seen three or four reports of her speech, which depending how it is read means either I *can* visit my mother - who lives on her own on Skye - on Friday, or I can't.

This statement:
Originally Posted by Nicola Sturgeon
There will be exceptions for those living alone, or alone with children, who form extended households.

appears to have been taken verbatim from her speech, and different reports put the commas in different places, replace them with semicolons, or omit them altogether. It all hangs on whether 'those living alone' is in itself sufficient to make an exception, or whether the 'who form extended households' is inclusive.

I am unable to find anything written from Holyrood yet.

I read this as it's ok to visit a single elderly relative. "Split" families are also allowed some flexibility with kids going from one household to t'other, and distances are not yet an issue as they were previously.

Why complicate things? Don't forget you could always check/test your eyesight Neil at any location or take your mother grouse shooting

I think we can be an extended household. Can't get much more extended than Berlin...

Things are improving here in Australia with some State borders re-opening and more intrastate travel being allowed.

I live in Queensland which is one of the least affected States with still a strong border control.

My wife and I just returned yesterday from a 2 week 4007 km bus tour through the central west and savannah regions of our state. Flew hove with Qantas from Cairns on a very full 737.

The country regions were vey busy as it is school holidays and most caravan parks etc were fully booked. So much to see here and many families were surprised as to what we have in "our backyard".

We have been very lucky here in Queensland with a low infection rate and corresponding deaths.

Good to hear.

In your opinion Possum, what factors have contributed to this state of affairs?

In Tasmania, the State premier locked down access back in March, anyone coming in must spend 2 weeks in hotel quarantine. We had an outbreak in the north of the state a few months ago, attributed to passengers from a cruise ship flying in from Sydney. During that time travel was limited, working from home was encouraged etc. We now haven't had any cases for several months, life is basically back to normal, although the tourism industry is in deep shit. Tasmania's isolation has always been a pain in the arse, but with covid its an asset, we don't want any tourists, just send cash.

We gather over here that NZ has also been immensely successful dealing with it thanks to firm controls established at the outset. Their lady PM has done her street cred no amount of good by being at the helm it seems.

What is Sturgeon playing at? Where is the evidence that any of this works or is actually warranted?

https://youtu.be/EKFe0-iL1kw this chap provides some though provoking data comparisons.
