      Ah the zealot!
      This may or may not be an original thought of my own.
      All efforts were made to make this thought original but with the abundance of thoughts in the world the originality of this thought cannot be guaranteed.

        On the back of your sandman rating, I suggest you look up the hellblazer comics.
        Constantine is a fucking awesome character.
        Dangerous habits is probably the most iconic arc to jump off from but it's all brilliant

            I'm at that match in the RDS every fucking year. So many defeats, including that defeat snatched from the jaws of victory a few years ago. Can't believe there are no fans in green there to enjoy it tonight!!!!

              I only saw the last 20. Looks like Connacht ran up a huge lead by h-t.

                  Anyone want to have a bet on the senatorial races in Georgia next Tuesday?

                  Polls have both races a dead heat.

                            That was pretty amazing. So enjoyable to cook. First time gutting a squid.

                            ​​​​​​Downed it with a lovely Sancerre. Spanish and Salsa tunes throughout. Deadly.

                            ​​​​​​Will tweak a little the next time. Would love to cook on the BBQ.

                                              Yes, I would be taking a 2-0 GOP win here. Although it's very fucking tight and who knows what the post-election nuttiness from Trump does to the race. There's a suggestion GOP turnout might be suppressed if people actually believe his BS.

                                                                        I've been pretty compliant since March and prior to Xmas I didn't go to any cafes/restaurants except for my wedding. However I went out a couple of times and had a few drinks in the weeks leading up to Xmas.

                                                                        Almost everyone's behaviour moved to some degree even if they were technically compliant or not. That to me is the big driver, the sheer volume of people who changed their behaviour quite substantially all at once.

If you hang on for 29 days or more, and don't get a retest, you're not counted.

Priority obviously on production based staff. We have 3 nurses organized to coordinate testing but unfortunately 2 of them are out with covid. Looks like at least another week of WFH for me. Prior to xmas I was about 50% WFH.

Go big and then break it down into smaller steps. At least then you’re moving in the direction you really want rather than pricking around with “meh” ambitions.

Although it's very fucking tight and who knows what the post-election nuttiness from Trump does to the race. There's a suggestion GOP turnout might be suppressed if people actually believe his BS.

It was a work thing and the goal was to see how much you could improve your 5k time. I enjoyed it for a while but it became torturous and not much fun in going flat out with music blaring.

                                                                                                            Kept it up a small bit. But just at my own pace listening to books / podcasts. Anyone starting running should aim for a small distance target and build from there. Time for your average pleb will result in giving up quicker imo.

                                                                                                            Going for 100k this month. Nothing for a proper runner. But will take a bit of effort and i will be delighted when i achieve it. Really enjoying it.

This is the first year I've tried it, mainly because I feel one of my biggest pitfalls is lack of structure. I think it very much depends on the type of person you are.

                                                                                                                      Someone like me who doesn't have the best organisational skills *should* benefit from it but if you're quite good in that regard, you're probably not leaving much on the table by not doing it.
