I'm mostly aligned with Jim here, and often talk about cheese.

We run and hike a lot these days, in the enforced absence of friends or clubs, and talk about anything to pass the time.To be honest most of our conversations are acrimonious debate on the merits or otherwise of YouTubers and what bonuses stack with what in various games  (my opinion is that nothing ever stacks unless it very explicitly says it does, he takes the 'if it makes sense' approach. Kids, eh?).

Got the first shot of my COVID vaccination this morning, after only having booked it last Wednesday.

I'm putting the event in this thread as it's truly something to consider just over a year ago this virus had everyone in the first lockdown and the numbers of hospitalisations and deaths were only increasing.

The fact we now have more than one type of vaccine available is definitely in the science is drokking fantastic category, as this has been possible due to the years of research into vaccines and epidemiology that the developers have learned from and built upon. This is a Good Thing that should be celebrated.


Things are finally happening this side of the border too, glacial as the rollout has been.  Almost a quarter of the population (including my elderly parents, at long last) has been vaccinated and hospital admissions and deaths are way down from this time a month ago.  As you say, a Good Thing.

I run alone, through choice, but think of cheese, toasted mostly.

I would argue that you can't toast cheese. It's the bread on which the cheese sits that's toasted. So your thoughts are incorrect and it's no wonder you run alone.

...it gives us images like this:

Wait... Does this means that Earth is not flat? I must be awfully lied to.

My jest aside, science it's great because it constantly evolves. And there are lots of spaces of which we are totally u aware of (well, I am not going to quote that crappy film The Happening with Mark Wahlberg). I am always for trust the science. Trust the scientists? Hm... That's a bit picky. Question is who of today's scientists is pretending to be real.

Ah... that's why we are forbidden to travel to inside Earth. But I like to think we are all lizards, David Icke would be pleased with that confirmation.
