    We're quite close to being able to say that anyone getting covid today almost certainly won't die, given who's been vaccinated so far.
    Yeah case numbers are an indication of how its spreading. But the comparisons saying we are x times the number of cases back during the first peak hurts my head when the testing is completely different. The walk in symptom free testing centres are a great thing of course, but comparing the resulting cases to a time when we werent testing the same type of people, who would have sat at home asymptomatic, creates unnecessary panic, and the media will run with it.

      As well, case numbers in a time when vaccinations are being rolled out <> case numbers when no vaccines were available

      IMO (as the great health data expert I obviously am ), the danger of 'the health service being overwhelmed' is now close to 0% and that should now be factored into decision making.

        Suez canal up and running again - you'd fill a bit foolish if you were one of the ships who panicked and went the Cape of Good Pirates route.

          what's the round trip sailing from Suez to Rotterdam vs going through the canal? must easily be 10,000km extra (he said wth no backup at all)

              Looks like easily an extra 18,000km or so

                They say 9000K saving for London, so a bit more for Rotterdam (x 2 obviously for your round trip).
                Obviously we were all reading up on it a bit because it was in the news - I was fascinated by the fees for what is effectively a toll road.
                I had a figure in my head for how much it would cost to travel, I was way off.
                For anyone who wants to guess before the answer
                SPOILER
                my guess was around $10K depending on size of ship, turns out the average toll is $250K. Makes the port tunnel seem a bargain at €10.

                  Is there a reason you went for IAG specifically, vs Ryanair or indeed a basket of airlines?

                      Looks undervalued. Not totally in hock to government bailouts because of the rights issue. In a good position to pressure struggling Virgin. Opportunistically used pandemic to sort some legacy staff issues. Analyst ratings good.

                      Ryanair has already recovered back to pre-covid price.

                              I think linking opening to vaccine roll out milestones rather than positive cases would be a good change of direction and give a bit more hope to the population.

                              Essentially the same thing but phrased differently - the current message has lost any meaning.

                                yes, we're on the same track.

                                Although it's a horrible fine line for the government to try to walk, I don't envy them

                                  The trouble is we don't know exactly what success will look like in that regard. Ideally we'd see cases stay roughly stable but hospitalisations plummet. Hopefully we'll get good date from the UK's opening up starting today, but there will still remain a huge number of unknowns.

                                    We don’t but waiting until figures hit zero isn’t really plausible, getting rid of COVID globally or even locally completely won’t happen even once the vaccine is fully rolled out.

                                    They don’t really need to promise much, like just going for once the 65’s are done we all get to go for a hair cut, Small promises that are inevitably coming anyway and if numbers actually fall then they can throw in a few more bonus’s.

                                    Obv pubs, gigs and big sporting events are miles away.

                                      I think we can take a positive enough view of this, despite all being exhausted by lockdown. Some new openings happening this week. Probably some more in a months time (end of April - more or less everything open except pubs and restaurants), then pubs and restaurants open a month at end of May, then whatever the fuck a month open by the end of June. So there's positive new steps happening each month after three months of nothingness, and within three months it'll be more or less fully over for all intents and purposes.

                                          You're adding about 3500 nautical miles by going round the Cape rather than through the Suez.

                                          In addition to time, probably an additional 7+ days, you also have the issue of piracy of both side of Africa which can be a big issue.

                                            Congratulations to Shrapnel, for winning consecutive Music Kings. He beat Ed for the second year in a row (and I think this one is gonna hurt) while PSV played a strong game too.

                                            Some great music on offer and I doubt it'll be another year before we do it again.

Yesterday they were told that the company founder is being bought out, minimum 40K bonus for everyone who has options, he's there 10 months, puketastic. He's bull thick and I guess you can't blame him. They are about to start building a house and it would have made a nice start to that.

He was out sick from work for a week and didn't get to pay his sub as a result. They didn't count him in the syndicate for that period and ended up winning the lotto. Pictures in local paper and national media coverage etc. Poor fella missed out on a very nice 5 figure sum as a result. The other syndicate members wouldn't give up a few k each to cover his potential winnings either. I just couldn't fathom the bad vibes that would have caused. He was still working with the same company and colleagues for years later.

She's just pulled the same frozen pack I normally buy in the Chinese supermarket out of the freezer. Got to love the gamesmanship. Although I'm now wondering if the run-down look of the place wasn't an attempt at portraying authenticity but just their general business attitude.

I've a Korean mate that had them and she said they're legit decent compared what's available at home. Probably the same ones for your starter in a Chinese take away too.

But you are right with the word, Hitch should have said Jiaozi for a Chinese place, though they are written using Chinese characters in japan still!

                                                                                                                  A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife.

                                                                                                                  She was a very good-looking woman and determined to keep the ranch, but knew very little about ranching, so she decided to place an ad in the newspaper for a ranch hand.

                                                                                                                  Two cowboys applied for the job. One was gay and the other a drunk.

                                                                                                                  She thought long and hard about it, and when no one else applied she decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around the house than the drunk.

                                                                                                                  He proved to be a hard worker who put in long hours every day and knew a lot about ranching.

                                                                                                                  For weeks, the two of them worked, and the ranch was doing very well.

                                                                                                                  Then one day, the rancher's widow said to the hired hand, "You have done a really good job, and the ranch looks great. You should go into town and kick up your heels." The hired hand readily agreed and went into town Saturday night.
                                                                                                                  One o'clock came and he didn't return. Two o'clock and no hired hand.
                                                                                                                  Finally he returned around two-thirty, and upon entering the house, he found the rancher's widow sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine, waiting for him.

                                                                                                                  She quietly called him over to her. "Unbutton my blouse and take it off," she said. Trembling, he did as she directed. "Now take off my boots." He did as she asked, ever so slowly. "Now take off my socks." He removed each gently and placed them neatly by her boots. "Now take off my skirt." He slowly unbuttoned it, constantly watching her eyes in the fire light. "Now take off my bra." Again, with trembling hands, he did as he was told and dropped it to the floor.

                                                                                                                  Then she looked deep into his eyes and said, "If you EVER wear my clothes into town again, you're fired"

He was out sick from work for a week and didn't get to pay his sub as a result. They didn't count him in the syndicate for that period and ended up winning the lotto. Pictures in local paper and national media coverage etc. Poor fella missed out on a very nice 5 figure sum as a result. The other syndicate members wouldn't give up a few k each to cover his potential winnings either. I just couldn't fathom the bad vibes that would have caused. He was still working with the same company and colleagues for years later.
