Morning nesters. Found this Quite Interesting:
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... -community

The ultimate irony is that fear is running their show. It is frightening to think you can get cancer regardless of how healthy your diet is, or that you can get Covid, no matter your BMI. The randomness of illness – and the ultimate certainty of death – is far too frightening for some to contemplate. So they rely on a fiction which makes them feel safe, superior and unconsciously immortal. Hay’s fiction is this: stop acting like a child and you’ll cure your kidney problems. Her wellness counterparts today say eat organic food, do yoga, don’t consume the mainstream media, and you won’t get sick from Covid.

Every time I see someone on tv 'explaining' why they won't get vaccinated, it just sounds to me like 'I'm special'.

I had at some point thought that as I got more used to being alive I would become more tolerant.
Turns out that's not how it's going.

Anyone else watched "Take a hike" under the impression it might be a nice, Repair Shop-type treatment of rambling types?

I see the Tories have gone mask off again and promoted a bigot to 'Equalities Minister'.

Not impossible that both her and Dorries get forced out before Christmas.

Teenage shopper Maria Snow also welcomed a switch to imperial measurements despite growing up using the metric system.
She said a return to imperial measurements would be attractive to tourists.
“Personally, I think the switch is good because it gives a bit more identity to British shopping,” Ms Snow said.
