  1. Odd news

    https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20210723-the-strange-19th-century-sport-that-was-cooler-than-football Pedestrianism! A curious story indeed!
  2. Agree, Leon! Ok, sleep time. Long day. Have to watch out I don't fall over doggie Mandy, who is currently licking my feet🤪  
  3. Before I forget--so if someone drinks 20 pints a day, does 4 Big Macs before breakfast and consumes 3 ex-rabbits at lunch together with a bottle of red wine ( even a cheap one )- they should be protected by the NHS because there is no vaccine?  Complicated, innit? And you never know.. a friend of mine in Hamburg for 30 years , ex-smoker, moderate drinker, slim. We WhatsApped the other day. Diagnosis: lung tumour and heart irregularity. Not good. I was in tears. He is afraid. And so am I. So, based on your logic, Keleth, if my friend Frank had followed medical advice years ago and had refused- he should be refused medical treatment at no extra cost? Ok, he pays into the system anyway. But assuming he was in the NHS?  
  4. Brexit: The fallout

    Murphaph's quote.. reminds me of " nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition." 😂
  5. I am everywhere, hellfire! Noblesse oblige😂 There are an awful lot of people who are unhygienic and wear the same underwear for three days etc and eg don't wash their hands after going to the loo. Or after the Tuesday wank. ( Peter Cook and Dudley Moore! Live sketch! Way back then!)    Breaking news!😂   https://www.ozy.com/around-the-world/france-and-britains-dirty-little-secret/77397   If Covid can teach us all anything- we all need to watch out for our hygiene ( including not allowing our dogs to kiss us on the chops).. 
  6. Trying to keep up with your posts. Trying to work out which quote of yours you meant. Honestly.
  7. 1. Hypothetical. Just imagine the uproar in the UK. But I would go for it if the patient was attacking eg hospital staff/ ambulance drivers. Unacceptable behaviour. 2. No, the insurance company shouldn't pay.  3.Smiling😃.. just eye drops! Edit: apologies. Double posting.

  9. I wear a mask outside.  I am careful. I am aware that there is a virus. I am aware that it is better to avoid the masses. I try to anyway these days as , honestly , many don't look after their hygiene, don't shower, stink and don't wash their hands after going to the loo. An observation. 
  10. Dunno. But apart from you and me ( well, you disagreed with him-fine ) has anyone called him out on it? I could check but time-consuming.
  11. Answer your own question! " Should the NHS treat them for free.." What is your answer? There is no vaccine for the lifestyle. So should the NHS/taxpayer  pay for their treatment? Yes or no? ( Of course, the system is different in Germany but anyway..).. Drunk drivers? Should be prosecuted. Criminal offence. But that is not the same as a prosecution-free public health service. No, I am not on meds or anything.  
  12. No, I am not saying that but there could be killings and violence due to differences of opinion. We see this violence already in some countries and violent police reactions. Hatred leads to more violence and more hatred and polarisation.  We also see reports in the news about how mask wearers and non- mask wearers are swearing and fighting each other in supermarkets etc . Rude behaviour etc. This can escalate. Eg: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/30/style/mask-america-freedom-coronavirus.html   I posted an anti- semitic cartoon from the Nazis because they used vermin/ rats to describe people. As did Murphaph, who should be ashamed of himself.    Non-citizens being denied rights? What do you mean? What have I ever written about that? Don't know what you are referring to.. please explain.   I read about your restrictions. Fair enough. Have I said I disagree with them? I am more disturbed by those of you ( but not you ) who are targetting me for abuse but think Murphaph is right to describe people he disagrees with as " rats."  
  13. Brexit: The fallout

    Crowd funding required!👡 I need new shoes!😂
  14. Dangerous territory re your last comment😂 " Taxpayers and subsidising " etc. Makes you sound like a Tory!!  Seriously, where do you draw the line? People living unhealthy lifestyles ( booze, fags , junk food , lying in bed all day😂) and going on the sick etc.. should the NHS in the UK ( example and I know we are not in the UK ) refuse to treat them? And what about yobs who attack hospital staff and ambulance drivers/ firefighters etc? 
  15. Brexit: The fallout

    Just for me? So where's the money?😂 IBAN: DE... oh, man, when I need a good memory.. damn!😩
