    World Snooker prediction competition 2021

    Both the O'Sullivan and Yan Bingtao matches had started, but both were in their very early stages and it's not like you've taken advantage, so you're fine with those. I prefer to try to beat you when you've predicted the lot, although I think most years I've failed

    2021 GP Series Dates

    It now seems to have changed. You can get in, but all ticket ranges show as "Tickets not available."

    2021 GP Series Dates

    Has Cardiff been cancelled? Just tried to order a ticket on the SGP website and it says "Page Not Found" when trying to order a ticket.

    Well apparently we're sheep and Bill Gates can now track where we are

    Had my first jab of the Oxford-Astra-Zeneca vaccine at 9am this morning. Feel fine.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Yes, so sad, he seemed such a sweet and humble old man. I'm glad he got to live life a little in his final year.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Surely, if he'd been civil and polite in the first place, then wouldn't have been a problem. Instead he made a huge scene of it, got it recorded on his phone and then, when he got home, went crying to mummy and daddy. Entitled little sh*t.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    I don't disagree with any of that. It's why I barely watch the news at all now. Ghouls, the lot of them, especially the sickening relish they do it with. It doesn't mean any of us have to do the same!

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    I don't know, but I would take a wild guess it's the current rolling 7-day average, as Portugal sadly seems to have a real increase in cases and deaths recently, which is very sad, because each of those is a loss of a life and devastating to their family and friends. Does it is really matter who's highest of which table? Rather than wetting yourself over death statistics, maybe you should just grieve for those who have died, both from Covid and non-Covid. There's nothing anything any of us can do, and posting ghoulish statistics may not be helping the mental health of others.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    The media could report on just a few of those human stories each day, rather than flashing up the number of deaths across the bottom of the screen like the bloody football results. I avoid the news for the latter reason - it's distasteful and inhuman. Studies should and are taking place - a friend of mine is a civil servant who looks at statistics and he wouldn't have been doing anything but looking at this for the last year. But what good is it doing for you to constantly yak on about it here (unless you seriously think statisticians, scientists, civil servants and government minsters are looking on here!), except for maybe upsetting the mental heath of some your fellow BSF members? See you again in a few months - I'll leave you to it.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Haven't commented on this thread for a while, because I don't think there's been anything original on it for around eight months. There's still DC2 following the error of the media and talking statistics without showing any human compassion. People are dying - it's not the football results. Even BWitcher worked that out eventually and disappeared with his tail between his legs. But amongst the idiots who think it's all a conspiracy theory (tell that to my uncle, after his sister-in-law died last weekend and he'd take your head off), the bumbling of our government (why, oh why, let the kids go back to school for ONE day), and those who break the rules (which are daft in places, but are generally there for protecting the population, especially the vulnerable), there's the odd story that touches my heart, such as this one: Covid-19: Bracknell couple's 'final meeting' in hospital - BBC News Great stuff from this Surrey hospital, to allow a husband a chance to speak to his wife in her dying hours, after both got Covid. That would have meant so much, while he hopefully manages to beat it. To me, that's what this is all about - human stories. Every death is a person with relatives and friends and my heart goes out to them. They're not just a statistic. Hope everyone is keeping well, both physically and mentally, during this difficult time.

    'the Donald' Trump

    Unless the Republicans realise their best chance of success in 2024 was born in Austria...

    'the Donald' Trump

    Yeah, there's got to be more safeguards to rein in a rogue, unstable President.

    'the Donald' Trump

    Although with the Democrats with the triple whammy of President, Senate and House Of Representatives, that rule could well change in the next few years. It has been mentioned before that you should be allowed to run, if you've been an American citizen for a prescribed amount of time.

    'the Donald' Trump

    He should be the Republican candidate in 2024.

    'the Donald' Trump

    It again shows you can't believe a word that Trump says. Although the inauguration will be better for his absence. Pence can do Trump's duties again - just as he did by calling the National Guard to save the Senate from Trump's band of terrorists.

    'the Donald' Trump

    Poor Blupanther. Is that the best you've got?
  23. lucifer sam

    'the Donald' Trump

    Too little, too late. Everyone already saw his tweet, telling the terrorists "we love you" and calling them "very special", before it was deleted by twitter. And who called the National Guard? President Trump? Or, as reported elsewhere, Vice President Pence? Even when Trump is supposedly coming clean, there's a potential untruth in there.
  24. lucifer sam

    'the Donald' Trump

    Yes, you'd think it was obvious and wouldn't need stating that proper, credible evidence needs to be provided. But the sad thing is many, not just Blupanther, hang on every word that Trump says as gospel, even when they are the demented ramblings of an increasingly narcissistic and deranged man.

    2021 speedway season !

    Again, if everywhere is Tier 2 or lower by next Easter, then it's not a problem.
