    The last thread gave us a lot of insight in to how people see the pandemic play out. We argued a bit as well but these are frustrating times. So how is your boat holding up and do you think you'll be sailing in it for another 6 months? Or......dare I even think it........a year.....gulp.

    I am feeling optimistic these days because I'm focusing on the science and not hysteria.


    Every person has a dark side.What defines a person with good character is not a spotless life of constant kindness, smiles and even temperament - but a willingness to see in themselves their deepest and wildest selves, lust, greed, jealousy and envy. Their complete & authentic self.

    End is in sight, following the science is the way to go obviously but some people confuse science with miracle working, wanting it all to end over night.

    Just watched that ad on RTÉ though from the Government of Ireland, where your man offers the woman a lift and she ends up in ICU. Terrible idea those ads, what were they thinking?

    The policy in many Western countries appears to be to cause people severe distress through tv ads and by creating fear.

    Fear works well, ads like that are the reason I wear a seatbelt but these ads are just ****e and over the top. I haven't seen ads in other countries, do you have any links.

    As this thread moves towards it's 10k limit I wanted to advise everyone there will not be a follow up thread. This thread has moved away from its original topic and has become very similar in nature to the Relaxation of Restrictions thread. Indeed it seems to have become a home to many posters who find themselves banned from that thread

    Of course posters can still appeal their threadbans by approaching the banning mod via PM

    The thread will be closed later this evening, so you have a final opportunity to conclude any outstanding discussions

    Any questions please PM me. Do not respond to this post in-thread
