Surely just the bag with eye holes like a balaclava would be easier.

There's already been really good quality memes with ET or Bernie and I'm sure anyone or anything else you can imagine.

I hope I'm still around when the follow up mission collects the samples and does the research on them, probably well into the next decade.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 2020/21 Season

The best I can describe that is we just weren't quite on it.
Plenty to like but Oh my the missed chances.
We should be able to take the home tie with all that support and a familiar stadium...?
Yeh I know...Athens and a couple of bored Greek groundsmen.

We'd better wake up a bit against City.

A bit of a coincidence that this appeared today on GWS

Seems to fit with your opinion Si.

Have to be honest I wouldn't know what an exemption certificate/lanyard looks like.

Just as an indicator the instructions/advice for the taxi trade is even if people are exempt from wearing a mask we are still able to refuse to take them.

The virus doesn't take notice of exemptions. In reality there's that little work under lockdown I'll just role the window down a bit and wear mine as normal.

If you look at the grief the BNTVA have had in even trying to get a medal I think it's a long haul Si but I wish you luck with it.

As a country we're too ready to big up the services until they need something from us.

"I've been jabbed with a combined vaccine for bubonic plague and anthrax, so this doesn't worry me in the slightest..."

Obviously not for these but most people will have been vaccinated for several things already in their lives.
From memory there's the obvious MMR.
I know I've been done for Polio and Smallpox.
If you've ever travelled anywhere exotic you'll have been done for yellow fever and some others.

Difficult to understand why this latest one seems to be getting more anti traction. There's the speed it's been developed at which if anyone's been listening has been explained.
The Bill Gates, 5G, it's a hoax lot though in a previous life would have been burning witches or books instead of masts.

Maybe they're just Pyromaniacs.
I wonder if you can get a vaccine for that?

"Aaaaah, right, you've had the vaccine. I didn't have a clue what you were in about
Which one did you have - AZ?"

Yes Astra Zeneca.
The woman giving me the shot says they seem to be going through the groups quicker than is on the news as there were quite a few over 60's turning up.
Mind you maybe they are getting though it quicker in some areas.

(Sarcasm mode off) 
For anyone stressed out by the prospect of the vaccine.
Twenty hours later no side effects at all and even a needle averse wuss like me didn't feel it.
(Sarcasm mode on)
Feeling perfectly normal which admittedly for me is a low bar.

Arsenal have reportedly been told they can sign Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard for just £15m...


Seems like a bargain but I think someone on here may be a trifle upset.

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

Either they are getting through the groups a lot quicker than we're being told.
Unlikely given Johnson's puppy like desire to please.
Or scheduling is up the wall.
I'm not quite 70 but have had the letter and am getting stabbed on Monday and several family members, some quite young and with no obvious to me reason to be towards the front of the queue, are also getting done this week.

I do think they should be prioritising teachers though if they are insistent on getting schools back ASAP.

RE: [VIDEO] Star Wars spin-off series The Mandalorian

I don't like cancel culture whichever political slant it takes but in this case I'd argue its completely a financial decision.
Will they lose or gain by sacking Ms Carano

For my part I'd be quite happy to keep watching her in The Mandalorian. In fact I will be as she's in series 2 which they probably won't can due to costs.
QED
