    I just get a bag of mcabes every few weeks from a Sunday Market that's suitable for my French press.
    I'm probably doing it wrong as there is some amount of grounds left after each kettle/pot is finished
    People say I should be more humble I hope they understand, they don't listen when you mumble

      I gave up coffee during the year and don't regret it one bit - all you are doing when you drink it is borrowing energy from your future self.

          Don't bother with your own grinder btw. They make a horrible noise and the ground stuff is perfectly cromulent. The effort/reward ratio is way off.

            I largely agree with this. (Though I do drink decaf and never noticed the difference when I switched a few years back.)

            Caffeine is a scam. I mean, if you want to get high why do it like a little girl?

            There's few things more yawn-inducing than the office bore telling you how they can't get their day started until they get their 'fix'.

              The aforementioned fingerprint reader and fast charger that Google have admitted they lied about are more reasons why it's the most regrettable phone purchase I've ever made.

              wasn't aware of these issues , other than the fingerprint one which i'm getting used to tbh. Is that Ireland specific? not seen anything on that in the UK

                      Positive antigen just now. Faint line but it's there.

                      I assume the line gets stronger the bigger the viral load. Does anyone know if stronger/worse symptoms correlate with a higher load?

                      Didn't seem to with the seven year old, but it seems to behave differently in kids.

                          I quite liked both King Richard and Stillwater.

                          Marseilles tourist board won't be too delighted with the latter but I enjoyed the cinematography. Mrs D3 disliked though.

                              On a decent sample size I don't know anyone suffering too bad with strong symptoms, I'd say try not think about predicting how it's gonna go for ya and work on the entertainment schedule.

                                  Good chance you've been through the worst with the fever so there's a good chance the only thing a the bigger viral load you're going to develop will do is just make tests instantly positive and infect others.

                                    You're dead right, that's definitely the logic we use.

                                    Xmas bonus spend. Bought the Weber with it last year although that took a fair bit of cajoling. Bought it in May

                                    She agrees now it's one of the best purchases we've ever made.

                                      Yeah, hopefully so. In April I had one rough night of high fever then easy after that. Taste, smell and fatigue, no real cough or sore throat. Sore throat and chest now.

                                      Had mild enough fever last night based on the dreams. Fucking hate those repetitive fever dreams. So stressful.

Everything's either preliminary like the Scottish data released on the 22nd, or based on uncomparative populations e.g. Gautang province where the vaccination rate is ~25% but the antibody rate is 95%+.
                                        These are pre omicron stats, no idea about it. There are people still meeting up with others with symptoms, christmas went ahead etc, fact is that even with possibly hugely reduced transmissability people will make it spread, must be realistically 50k cases a day now.

Then she went into labour so sat at her desk and and started making a brownie. She was in with the little lad that night, mad dreams. Snapped out of it, took 2 paracetamol and got back into bed. Felt right as rain in the morning, did my daily morning test and was positive. Only thing that got worse was odd ache, weird headache and the energy absolutely sapped out of me.

                                          You'll be grand.

                                              My fever dreams are really difficult to describe once I wake up, but really vivid during them. Usually some abstract moving image that just keeps repeating over and over again but has a real sense of negativity about it.

                                                  Weird antigen test result, or maybe someone else has got similar?
                                                  Genru (Lidl) test.
                                                  C line came up fine. But there's a vertical pink line from North to SouthWest about 1.5cm long starting above and ending below where the T line is.
                                                  Doesn't really correspond to anything on the doco which suggests a positive result, or an invalid test.
                                                  Positive would be a straight line level with T. Invalid would be if the C Line hadn't filled up.

                                                    C line came up fine. But there's a vertical pink line from North to SouthWest about 1.5cm long starting above and ending below where the T line is.
                                                    Doesn't really correspond to anything on the doco which suggests a positive result, or an invalid test.
                                                    Positive would be a straight line level with T. Invalid would be if the C Line hadn't filled up.

                                                      I would imagine once there's no line at the T it's negative as the sensitive part is at the T line.

                                                      Sounds like a faulty kit, maybe do another.

                                                        A visual representation would be that instead of "---T", I'm seeing "/ T" with the '/' starting and ending a good bit above and beyond the T line.
                                                        I'm going to assume its a bad test but unf was the last one in the house. Will buy more.

                                                                                    I'm going to assume its a bad test but unf was the last one in the house. Will buy more.
                                                                                    Avoid Lidl blanch centre for the next hour if you want.
                                                                                    Seem to be negative anyway on the next test. (Although mind playing tricks and trying to convince me that there's a T-Line when looked at under a bright torch.)
                                                                                    But no symptoms or anything so no panic.
