  1. I volunteered for a second time at a vaccine centre and was offered a jab at the end of the shift. So that was nice.
  2. Myth. I’d win a fight against a Quokka. It would come at me all friendly, and even attempt to pose for a selfie, but I’d catch it unawares with a jab-uppercut combo and the fight would be over in seconds.
  3. I volunteered as a steward at a vaccination centre on Sunday. The set up and efficiency was genuinely incredible. It was a slick operation. People were so happy to be getting vaccinated and to see that was genuinely rewarding. The venue was great too: the Science Museum in South Kensington.
  4. I used to go to a lot of these places. Plenty of mixed memories (some great and others not so much). I remember the earlier days of Sundissential when it was at Pulse and went from 12pm though to midnight on a Sunday. It was weird hours to go clubbing, but it became popular within the club scene and was full to the brim nearly every Sunday. Then it switched days and venues, never to the the same again. The promoter was a guy known as “Mad Dog/Madders”. I wonder what happened to him. He’d be an interesting case study into what years and years worth of very heavy ecstasy usage does to a
  5. https://www.latimes.com/science/story/2021-02-23/california-homegrown-coronavirus-strain-looks-increasingly-transmissible-and-dangerous Obviously people arriving from San Fran into the UK can pretty much stroll straight out of the airport. They just need to fill out a form and promise they’ll go straight to the place they’re staying to quarantine.
  6. There are providers offering COVID cover with their travel insurance. The Post Office is one of them. EHIC are still valid if in date and many are long dated (mine runs well into 2024), but what specifically changed about medical rights in January? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-44850972
  7. Because we didn’t remove all controls last summer. It’s all in the paper. The vaccination isn’t 100% effective and some of the graphs show how deaths could spike depending on uptake and the % of infection blocking.
  8. An insight about that is in the paper that I posted a page or two back. The Government don’t want the 1000 deaths per day figure and opening up hard is the rapid way to cause a spike again. If, say, we gradually open up in April and then remove all controls by July/August then deaths could hit ~2500 (this is shown in one of the graphs in the paper). The incompetent word removeds have **** it. We needed to do everything properly from the start and we’re still not doing things properly now. Meanwhile people are crying cos they can’t have two weeks in Benidorm, but they shouldn’t w
  9. There’s an interesting paper on this here: https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.12.27.20248896v2.full.pdf TL;DR Things will need to be lifted a lot more gradually and much later than otherwise expected.
  10. I’ll be really glad to see the back of her, and will praise the day that she never needs to be interviewed again, but I will kind of miss seeing Devi on our screens She can f**k right off with this chat about next year, though.
