    ByTheNumbers got a reaction from Diesel86 in Brisk walking under rated.   
    I've lost count of the number of times I have seen claims that dog owners live longer than the average person.
    Give a dog a good home and it will do you both a favour.
    Walkies...

    I've never understood how God could expect His creatures to pick the one true religion by faith - it strikes me as a sloppy way to run a universe.

    You might have guessed from my previous post. I am not generally fond of the God Squad but they are not all bad.
    I am a devout atheist but do have a soft spot for the Sally Army .  They have been helping those in need long before Food Banks were even a thought and they go far beyond just feeding people. They don't just feed and cloth people but visit the lonely in there homes and try to get people off the streets. Religious aspects aside I do like their work and myself and my family have probably given more money to them than any other charity. 
    They do preach but generally they practice what they preach and for that they do have my respect as well as fair bit of my cash.
    Theirs is the only Christmas appeal I have supported so far this year, as has everyone else in my house.

    ByTheNumbers got a reaction from Kazza61 in World's Strongest Man 2020 Predictions SPOILERS   
    Always had a great respect for Big Loz as a competitor in WSM. Never thought he was likely to win  but always hoped he would and was always in the mix with the strongest guys in the world.
    His YouTube channel is the only one I bother with for strongman. His Mrs knows her stuff too, I get the impression she was with him ever step of the way. 
    Yeah, Loz and his Mrs come across as  lovely people and real soulmates.

    I have tried to avoid family Christmas get togethers throughout my entire adult life with varying degrees of success. Now I have an unassailably legitimate excuse. God bless you Covid-19.

    Wouldn't be surprised see the whole of the UK being locked down again. Nicola Stalin is already talking about locking down Scotland to take advantage of the furlough cash.

    Apparently, the first vaccines are due in couple of months so hopefully no more lockdowns will be needed.

    Health for me and my family. That’s all I want. I’ve had the stress of my wife being seriously ill as a lot of you know. She has recovered to date. I just want things to stay that way. Good physical and mental health is something we take for granted. If you could buy it someone for Christmas you would.

    Harder than a hard thing on a hard day!!!
    99% of lifters would have given up on that. Shakes most of the way up, blood pissing from his nose but he did seem to lock it out in the end. 
    One of those lifts that was 90% mental and the other 10% was in his head

    ByTheNumbers reacted to BUFFMAN in A thread about bacon butties   
    The wife was in the kitchen the other morning cooking me bacon & eggs when I suddenly heard a loud thud. Running in I found her collapsed on the floor & not breathing. I was in a blind frenzy, I had no idea what to do. Then I remembered, Wetherspoons do an all-day breakfast for just £3.99.

    Watching all these idiotic talking heads on the news today saying the government measures don't go far enough. As if there is actually a shred of evidence that lockdowns work. 
    As Swedish scientists said from the start when all the talk in the MSM was about "Sweden taking a massive gamble" , they simply said "we're not gambling, the countries going into lockdown are the ones gambling".
    In 1918 the only city on the US east coast that didn't shut down was New York and it eventually fared better than any other city on the east coast.
    "And yet New York City remained largely open throughout the pandemic. And city leaders got credit for handling the disease better than other cities did."
    https://www.silive.com/news/2020/08/nyc-never-shut-down-during-1918-flu-pandemic-why-is-coronavirus-different-opinion.html   All these lockdowns are doing is prolonging the inevitable while causing carnage in pretty much every other area of society including health. If only Boris had held his nerve and followed the Swedish model.

    At least this time Nicola Stalin did acknowledge that restrictions have an effect on health and wellbeing. Since this fixation with Covid started I have seen little mention of the daily UK deaths from other illnesses from anyone in power on in the media. I believe Heart Disease, deaths alone average out at about 460 each day,
