    Return of "Frasier"

    Happy to give it a go, but I always preferred Niles to Frasier, in terms of the comedy factor. That said, Eddie usually upstaged them all.
  4. You've forgotten to account for the rise in depression being caused by reading opinions like some of those expressed on this thread. By the realisation that a percentage of humans won't even put on a face mask to protect others "because they don't want to" or, the people who think it's acceptable to break the law "because no-one is going to tell them what to do." The people who think Covid is a hoax, and it's not real. The people who don't seem to care if someone else is taken ill because of their neglectful behaviour. The people who don't bat an eyelid at seeing nurses break down in tears, doctors being unable to cope, retail workers being put at risk because they have to go to work, and those selfish people who are at their leisure think social distancing doesn't apply to them, or get offended when you take a step back and start hurling abuse...families being devastated by loss of their loved ones. THAT's what's depressing - that we live in a world where so many people only think about themselves.
  5. Not really. Whether they died with covid, we are certainly seeing a rise in deaths due to it - whether that be because covid has killed them, exacerbated an existing condition, or because the person hasn't received treatment for something entirely unrelated, it's still the pandemic that is the overall reason so many people are dying. What is more concerning is the total lack of humanity being shown on this thread. These "statistics" are people - humans - parents, children, grandparents, friends... What is wrong with some of you?
  6. Out of interest, would anyone have lived 2019 any differently if they'd known what was coming?
  7. I get the civil liberty brigade, I do. I get the stats show Covid isn't killing more people as a percentage than some other illnesses, and that it only seems to be affecting a small percentage of a certain demographic, but people would do well to take a moment to consider this. As a direct result of the pandemic, those responsible for looking after our health are telling us they can't cope - physically and emotionally. The NHS is almost at capacity in some areas, and people who need routine operations or have other illnesses aren't getting the treatment they need, which in itself will cause further complications and deaths long term. People - men, women and children - are dying in hospital of covid AND non-covid related illnesses, frightened and alone, because their families aren't allowed to visit them. Families are suffering emotional trauma because they can't comfort their loved ones in their last moments, or when they are in pain. Doctors and nurses are telling us they are exhausted, and at breaking point. I'd much rather be out, but it's these people I'm thinking of while I'm staying home.

    F 1 Today's race

    Trouble is, whilst they've probably undergone fire training, it's usually in a classroom setting with no actual fire or sense of danger in sight. It doesn't matter how good the training is - it's down to how the person reacts in that scenario. You could have someone whose first real dealing with a fire is on the same day as their first course and manages to remain calm and do everything right, or someone with years of training who just freezes in the moment. I think they did a pretty good job, all told, but still would have been a different story if Grosjean himself hadn't managed to extricate himself from the wreck.

    Out of interest, how many times have you won anything?
  10. Can anyone explain this new points system? Why did Vaculik score less than Zagar when they both finished on 4 points in round 2, for instance? What determined Zagar's ranking above Vaculik?

    World Snooker prediction competition 2020

    Jimmy beat Hendry in the seniors to do the double this year, so it's Hendry's turn again. Seriously, that newspaper headline for another world title for Stephen has been sitting on the printing press for long enough. There can't be a single fan of snooker who wouldn't want to see it happen?

    World Snooker prediction competition 2020

    I was sooo excited to hear Hendry is making a comeback this morning. A wildcard invitation for two years, along with Jimmy, Ken and James Wattana. Even if it's as bad as Schumacher's comeback, I've got something to look forward to again.

    German Bundesliga fixtures 2020

    Just checked my notes to see what meetings I have left to do for last year and it seems I have written this: 2019 German U21 Final (odd format) Was it due to be the same again this year?

    Or an odious, abusive, drunken sponge...whichever. Anyway, Jimmy has brought this final back from 0-4 to a final frame decider. Both he and Ken have played terribly!
