  1. It's the one area where Trump and the socialists find common ground.
  2. As are all Ph.Ds with the exception of theoretical physics.
  3. ..and the German version is much more benign then?
  4. Do you think so? Wordometer is scrupulous in identifying its sources.
  5. I think gargling a bit with your whisky before you swallow it will have the same effect without all the faff! That's my plan.
  6. "Ministers have revealed in parliamentary answers that there are 15 available beds for adult extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) treatment at five centres across England. The government said this could be increased in an emergency. There were 30 such beds in total available during the 2018-19 winter flu season." Guardian 27th Feb That's not quite the same thing. I think you are doing exactly the same as the tabloid press.
  7. I think the reporting member is a member...
  8. Not in flood, so I take the point about going into the river, but grappling hooks could be deployed from the bridge.
  9. You are probably right. Sawing is probably too dangerous anyway, on the basis that the boat might topple. Attaching a rope to the barrier using grappling hooks and pulling it off the stanchions from the opposite bank would probably have been a better option.
  10. Worldometer data is interesting. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ It shows the number of active cases dropping, from a peak of 58,747 on February 17th to 43,741 on Feb 27th. It also shows the total number of cases and the total number of deaths starting to level off. I'm not quite sure what to make of that.
  11. It kinda begs the question why someone didn't saw through the barrier whist the back end was still afloat. - or was the back end aready under?
  12. I think it takes technology and facilities to provide an accurate diagnosis - not inherent intelligence. However, mission acomplished. We recognise your empathy.
  13. We conventionally refer to our prime ministers by their surnames.
  14. Well, at least he proved that the Earth is hard.
