Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Quick update: happened to say on a social media thread that I’d still be wearing my mask in shops and on buses for some time, and was inundated with mockery. I posted to thank people for their input and would be stepping out now... but the scorn continues. So far I’ve been told that Covid never happ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Finally gave in and bought a ‘mystery’ box boasting a Netflix logo and Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy banner. It’s been shelf-sitting at a local toy shop for ages and ages, so I figured it could use some love. As anticipated, it’s Ultra Magnus... his picture is on the side of the box duh. I...

Re: Its so damn watchable!

Dunno why, but I’m completely off watching films. My favourite go-tos of the past - Dark Crystal, Forbidden Planet and The Rocky Horror Picture Show - don’t seem to float my boat anymore and I’ve little interest in the rest of my personal collection.

Life, I guess.

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Shocking update: there’s been a new rise in C-19 infections, hospital admissions and deaths despite the number of tests taken/reported remaining low. The UK Map of Doom is getting purpler by the day, where the deeper the shade, the higher the infection rate. We’ve had a number of callers, mainly adu...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Rolled here to toss my shanix in: When ‘it’s all over Thursday’ came out on the news, my work colleagues and I looked carefully at the statements made and went: oh, word games and statistics. Sure enough, we’ve been receiving calls from confused students and parents asking whether they should isolat...

I’m here this morning between two bots, those being Bing and Google.

Which is rather disappointing. I’d prefer, oh, Starscream and Mirage?

Re: Hey, who wants to buy a lake house and turn it into a commune?

Not sure a lake house will guarantee our survival unless there’s an underground complex of James Bond villain type beneath it, but I’m in.

I can garden, upcycle stuffs and organise (although not in the Marie Condo style; that’s too OCD). And you can all benefit from my old person wisdom hem-hem.

Re: Hey, what does everyone do for work now, anyway?

Okay, how do you do that? Do you not get bored? No time to get bored, believe me! We handle 650+ enquiries plus emails plus live webchat a day with just 4 full- and 6 part-time staff. The job requires a HUGE amount of knowledge and tact, especially when we’re fielding fallout as a consequence of cu...

Re: Hey, what does everyone do for work now, anyway?

Hi, Sades! I’m still slogging along part-time at our local College Customer Service Centre aka the switchboard. Been here four years now while fellow support staff gradually bled away during C-19 and were not, for the most part, replaced. We’re a small team in a remote building on one of the campuse...

987 deaths in the UK in the last 7 days, 14 in my local area, and numbers rising daily. Viruses don’t bother about government decisions and opposition arguments. College has been open barely one week and we’ve students and staff off either because they are resident with someone with Covid-19, have h...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Honestly, Denyer, if Labour ministers parade like this, we will end up with a totally privatised health service. Perhaps they’d like that..? They can generate support off the poor while not being poor themselves, then provide alcohol and food lines for the poor. I think it’s called ‘Communism’. Like...

Hey, guys! Over here, the Dinosaur Party aka Labour has responded to the Conservative government putting a small tax on earnings to help the NHS recover and continue delivering services by crying ‘the poor are going to be paying for the rich’ (you can actually identify the party by that cry!) and ‘t...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

In the UK, from about now, no under 18 year old is required to self-isolate if they’ve been in contact with someone who has tested positive/has symptoms for C-19. Colleges and schools start back in a couple of weeks, so I’m thinking we’re in for an interesting Autumn and Winter... Expect lies, damn ...

Re: Anyone seen the Netflix show yet? (Minor spoilers)

Well, I’ve been considering the ‘final’ instalment, Kingdom, and, while certain things really annoy me - particularly the Beast Wars characters being the same size at the G1 characters - I was impressed by the nod to Time Wars and Starscream’s reasons for betraying Megatron. Damn, Starscream ended u...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Anti-lockdown/anti-climate change march yesterday with thousands of idiots not wearing masks. They have no concept of anything beyond their egocentric ‘all up the ladder, Jack, I’m alright’ (and, of course, ‘I’m right’) attitude.

Can we have a new taxonomy, please, redefining Homo sapiens? :wall:

My first week back in the office and I must say that I am again travelling on public transport with oiks, idiots and the ignorant. So many not wearing face masks at all or using them as decorative neck items (which means they are wearing them, yes?). No restrictions on numbers using the buses, eithe...

Re: Site content and community revitalization project

There’s a lot of tv, toys and comics stuff already out there, as you say, Clay. Curate’s egg applies, and trolls abound.

I’d be up to providing comics related content and insights, given my capacity with research and extrapolation (I’m INTP, bite me), but the camera has never loved me...heh.
