    I despise sponsoring peopleís bills at restaurants in America. The etiquette is to split the bill however many ways. The thing is I donít drink. So itís not unusual for others to be 2 or 3 or even 4 drinks/cocktails in to my one beer or soda.

    Which means when the bill gets split equally Iím sponsoring 25% of everyoneís drinks.

    Also I hate sharing plates gaps style food. The dishes that are good you get one bite off, and for every dish that is good you try one that is average or just bad.

    I guess on the whole, despite having a great time tonight (I enjoyed the company) I really regret spending that much money on what was really just an average dinner.


    Oh this annoys the hell out of me. It's plain bad manners. Whenever I'm out with a mixture of drinkers and non-drinkers you make it clear from the start you won't be expecting non-drinkers to subsidise your drinking. The easiest way is to split the food bill equally and the drinks bill between the drinkers, with a bit of rounding so that non-drinkers pay for their drinks. Someone does have to get the phone calculator out at the end of the night though. Cause - I'd just be that person at the start if I was you. If you lay it out plainly then I don't think anyone can argue. And if they do then they have marked themselves out as someone you don't need to have dinner with again. I expect you are making new friends in a new town though so have to suck some of this stuff up for a while.

    One things for sure, covid giving us all lessons in the Greek alphabet. Classical languages resurgence post-pandemic.

    Reading Mac's rants - covid endgame since we failed to contain it has always been that it becomes endemic. It's going to exist in the population for the rest of our lives. The people who die today of flu will in future die of flu or covid and there may be more deaths overall. What we don't know is where we are in the journey between pandemic to endemic. We know vaccines help and we know there will be waves that after the biggest wave will progressively get smaller. With the levels of infection and vaccine coverage in the UK it is definitely going to get less bad over time. It's how much less bad and over what period of time that is the question. Odds are with us that we will be in better shape for next winter. Unless a brain melting child killing strain emerges....

    I watched Eps 1 and 2 because my sister has Amazon and I stayed with her this weekend. I'm not going to say it was good but I am going to say I mostly enjoyed it and would watch it if I had Amazon. It wasn't good enough to make me get Amazon though. I liked the changes I spotted, they made it more grown up and gritty but they are so blatantly going after the GoT audience with the random Lan in the bath scene! Scandalous.

    This would only be a relevant discussion if the original two shots had proven sufficient for long term immunity. We have learned since that this is not the case and that, like seasonal flu vaccines, immunity wanes after about 5-6 months. So by not taking your second booster you are becoming a potential victim and transmitter again, similar to an extent to an unvaccinated person. So who are you really helping by not revaccinating yourself? That discussion is based on outdated information.


    Flu vaccine immunity doesn't wane. The strains shift seasonally so last years vaccine is usually not effective for this years. Immunity to the strain the vaccine was for remains but antigenic drift means that strain is no longer the dominant one circulating. You're not comparing immunology apples with apples when you compare coronavirus and influenza.

    And I'm back as the most recent creeper on your profile page, most excellent. What was I rambling about last night? In my defence I don't really recall leaving the bar and woke up in the cinema room of the hostel

    In the way of scrolling? Like, it takes time for the page to load? Or do you mean it is unsuitable? Or are you simply mesmerized by the cocaine snorting capabilities of Henry the happy hoover?

    How did you know about the Lucas thing? Friends in powerful places. I got three happy birthday messages today from forums I go on, and one email from British Gas asking for money.

    I dunno. I never liked that film. I used to think Hudson Hawk was a great film, even though Andie MacDowall was in it. Now, all I can see is her non-acting face and it ruins the whole thing. She is not convincing as a human.
