Yeah, and despite all the 'mental health' claims, suicide numbers are way down.

Why wouldn't they be? You got paid good money to stay at home. ie. the place you got to build how you want and make all the rules. You got paid to stay there!

Well some did: Being a self employed small business owner certainly didn't pay off this time.

I suffer variously from hay fever, frequent exposure to sawdust, ditto grass seeds & pollens on the ride on. Or more probably as the GP has decided, sinus problems.

We imitators of various China virus symptoms feel compelled to try and remain invisible lest we are descended upon by angry crowds in public or the Covid Police.

I just wish it would go away and let me get on with my own sneezing without fear.

An interesting article from the Washington Post on the strange incidences of asymptomatic virus victims.

When researcher Monica Gandhi began digging deeper into outbreaks of the novel coronavirus, she was struck by the extraordinarily high number of infected people who had no symptoms.

A Boston homeless shelter had 147 infected residents, but 88 percent had no symptoms even though they shared their living space. A Tyson Foods poultry plant in Springdale, Ark., had 481 infections, and 95 percent were asymptomatic. Prisons in Arkansas, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia counted 3,277 infected people, but 96 percent were asymptomatic.

During its seven-month global rampage, the coronavirus has claimed more than 700,000 lives. But Gandhi began to think the bigger mystery might be why it has left so many more practically unscathed.

What was it about these asymptomatic people, who lived or worked so closely to others who fell severely ill, she wondered, that protected them? Did the “dose†of their viral exposure make a difference? Was it genetics? Or might some people already have partial resistance to the virus, contrary to our initial understanding?

 

 

it is far too long for me to postAll of it here, but anyone interested can see it all Wp

Returning Antarctic expeditioners with no experience of life under Covid have been sent videos of how to responsibly shop, drink at pubs and socialise, to soften their culture shock.

 

The Australian Antarctic Program is going to extraordinary steps to ensure returning expeditioners are prepared psychologically and in practical knowledge to deal with the do’s and don’ts of the ‘new normal’ back home.

When a number of these expeditioners went south, COVID19 was not part of our vocabulary ... this has happened while they’ve been in Antarctica, said Maree Riley, organisation psychologist with the Australian Antarctic Division.

 

Whilst we have all been social distancing, isolating and wearing masks, our expeditioners in Antarctica have been going about their normal daily routine without any real impact.

Follow the money.... responsible lending is being removed: I'll be looking at going in on debt fuelled assets, mainly property. It's not rational, but after watching the Aussie housing market for 20 years, there's only one thing that matters: Access to credit.
