  1. 3G in Restaurants?

    No, well what would you expect of people who are only interested in themselves as a starting point?  
  2. Buying power, inflation and others

    So, it helps with losing weight too.  
  3. 3G in Restaurants?

    Well, they do if you're not a) thick or b)Obtuse You're not even prepared to commit to a definition rather that it "seems" to be something.  You're definitely in a).  
  4. 3G in Restaurants?

    No they are not, stop posting nonsense.  They are not even comparable. Deaths on UK roads in 1 year = 1750 Deaths due to covid infections in 1 year =70000 +
  5. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

      Pointless, doesn't get it.  He'd rather crow about his investments in lithiumum lakes.
  6. Of course they did!  People have been pointing out the rampant ecological mess the need for new materials for new technologies has produced...lithium lakes, woods being cleared for mining, indian recyclying centers killing kids etc Those technologies also weren't being sold as a solution to another ecological mess either whereas EV's are being sold on that basis, that they are less polluting and more eco friendly.  Seems only at the point of use is that true.
  7. What kind of cooking oil do you use?

    Palm oil production is an ecological disaster that involves clearing thousands of acres of trees.  I'm not sure why the retailers have not been able to switch supplies faster or at least get more supply of Rapeseed.  As it's generally healthier than sunflower oil, I've been using that for a few years and I buy a local produced one from the markets in Frankfurt. I was expecting a flood of cheaper rapeseed oils given Germany exports the stuff but seems the hoarders and other idiots are making it harder for everyone again.
  8. What the hell have I done to my knee?

    Yeah, using a juicer we have one with ginger and lemon juice and a little bit of fresh squeezed orange.  I actually like it even though you have to brush your teeth once or twice after and you can feel the burn in your mouth for a while after.  I hear Turmeric tea can be quite nice but not tried it. I also just take cucurma extract supplements daily.

      Haha you actually believe that as equivalence.  So not much with the brain stuff are you Mr Bear?
  10. Changing car tires

    Each to ther own but it's clear the "best" solution is to have the best possible tyre for the season and not settle for a compromise for the entire year.  I could do without the arsing around twice a year though but I do like the feeling of getting my summer tyres on and going for a spin.
  11. Changing car tires

      Problem with all weather tyres is that they aren't as good in mud and snow as "proper" winter tyres and they aren't as good as summer tyres in Summer. Driving a RWD car and seeing the chaos in other countries when it snows or particularly wet I would never go back to all season tyres.

      Can you not stop yourself posting misleading shite, you cretin? Dangerous at worst, tedious at best.
  13. 3G in Restaurants?

      is long covid even relevant when proposing new or extended restrictions?  I think not, restrictions were put in place for other reasons.  If mortality and hospitalisations are not increasing in a time when infections are at a all time high, then it's time to start relaxing restrictions.
  14. 3G in Restaurants?

      Do you want to add anything to that or just post another misleading article and headline and hope no one else reads the reports or summaries of them?   Groundhog day every time a new report is produced, idiot websites post the headline bits and leave out the footnotes, summaries...I wonder why?  I also wonder why these very same reports were debunked as irrelevant prior to Omicrom.    Indeed what the report does confirm is that vaccine efficacy against infection of Omicrom is much lower than previous variants but yet infection and death rates among the the unwashed per 100,000.are upto 5 times higher than the fully vaccinated (I'll not had the explanations or footnotes if we're playing that game).   Death within 60 days of positive COVID-19 test by date of death between week 4 2022 (w/e 30 January 2022) and week 7 2022 (w/e 20 February 2022)     Unadjusted rates among persons vaccinated with at least 3 doses (per 100,000) Unadjusted rates among persons not vaccinated (per 100,000)2 Under 18 0 0 18 to 29 0.2 0.3 30 to 39 0.2 1.1 40 to 49 0.8 2.5 50 to 59 2.2 7.8 60 to 69 6.3 23 70 to 79 19.2 71.7 80 or over 119.5 243.1  
  15. "Woher kommst du?"

    "Your mum" is acceptable response in this instance I believe.
