Coronavirus came to Italy almost 6 months before the first official case, new study shows.

Caveat: I have little trust in this source as the WEF is using the current situation to advance its own agenda. However, I cannot see how revealing that this ostensibly dangerous virus appeared (at least) six months before it was officially detected without setting off any alarm bells can help their cause. If it was in Italy so early, and with no global house arrests lockdowns or travel restrictions in place, how many other countries were "infected" months before "official" diagnoses?

...it turns out that the only B5 we have access to are some ropey VHSs.



Sent you a PM, Tordels. I've had... an idea...

Just started B5 Season 3. It gets more relevant every time I watch it - and it still has the capacity to move me and inspire me.

Magnificent.

As long as that head is suitably equipped with a hi-vis hard hat, ear defenders, face guard, neck shield, goggles, mask, sunscreen, tracking device, panic button, and multiphasic shields.

I think it’s important we first agree a definition for ‘committee’.

What do you mean by "definition"…?

(If you're being serious...)
Both perfectly valid points - if one happens to be preparing to discuss the nature of committees or definitions.

(If you're joking...)
Ha, ha, ha. Very amusing! :D

(If you're just being nasty...)

You're thinking of feudalism.  What we have these days is plutocracy, which is different and better.

I prefer "kakistocracy." It seems to fit fairly well.

It usually works this way for me; at a loose end I go rooting through my media library and fasten upon In the Beginning because I just love it. Then I force myself to watch The Gathering, which is never as bad as I seem to remember. Heartened, I then get stuck in proper and have a little weep at the end.

Then comes the inevitable question, Crusade?

Who mentioned a committee?

Never mind. I guess we'll have to leave things as they are and hope to improve things by, I don't know, voting harder or something.

I think the problem is a discussion for the future. There may be many problems, few, or none.

I figured that if we first identify what government is for, then we can judge from that starting point what it's actually doing well, what it's doing badly, the directions it might take and the consequences of doing so. Who knows? We may even come up with something useful - even if it's only a deeper understanding of our own and each other's perspective.
