I remember sitting by Tharg's shoulder as a bloke basically pitched this same idea (but without the humour or charm or, indeed, plot). You could tell Tharg was gonna hit the polystyrene cups pretty hard that night.

Film & TV / Re: Patrick Stewart back as Picard in new series

Watched the last episode and was real impressed that theykilled of Picard and then they didn’t  >:(, overall not a bad series but I’m sure I’m probably in the minority here in the I like Discovery more and am chomping at the bit to see where they take that after the end of last season.

In my head canon :
Picard had a brain embolism in episode one and the entire series has been a 5 minute long death dream, and we cut to irish romulan woman tearfully saying goodbye to Picard who "died doing what he loved [walking in his garden]"

Well, that's it then:

Coronavirus: Greggs to close all stores to prevent spread

I can't believe they preempted the PMs announcement of it an hour early, though.

A nice gesture. Not sure Block Mania makes for escapism though 😜
Perhaps not, but it certainly works as a user manual for the upcoming weeks and months. ;)

Do you forget when this was printed?

Eyes with square pupils, paper lungs, wounded knee.

Why rebellion haven't licensed a game of operation with Judge Dredd at its core, is beyond me.

Can assure you, the entire creative community has been self-isolating for decades...

This morning I decided we need a coronvirus plan - nothing significent, not zombie attack plan, just a general, what do we do if a) either one of the kids school finds someone infected or b) wife's shared office space does the same. These are our biggest potential vectors.

My youngest has asthma, though I think he'd be fine, but both my wife and my dad are gonna be pretty susceptable to anything and I don't want to endanger them.

Here's the plan, in the event that one of the two schools or wife's shared office reports someone has it, all of us will self isolate for two weeks. That should limit our potential to spread anything from one location to another.

We have some food for a little while (*two days probably given how my kids eat), but I've family can probably deliver stuff to our front door (or tesco's can)

After the two weeks, everything being equal, I'm sure we'll be all clear. At that point if the location is still closed off, we'll simply avoid that place until it's clear - in the meantime the rest of us can go about our business.

Gonna be a bit more careful outside our flat in the communal areas (because who knows, right?) and will probably start to buy enough in-house supplies for a two week self-isolation program if it comes to that.

But aside from that, that's largely it.

Our biggest concern is our eldest has always been funny about his health and cleanliness to the point I've been worried he'll develop OCD and we have an appointment with someone to talk about CBT to make sure it doesn't become abnormal. BUT - what he's always been doing is now the recommended advice, and he's keen to start wearing face masks (and has been for years...)

It's very hard to know where sensible planning crosses the line to panic, but I hope I've struck a balance.
