    You also say that the virus does not exist, so why need a vaccine?  I genuinely don't get how dumb you have to be to take the word of a bunch of uneducated unqualified facebook poster halfwit who are claiming to know more that the virologists worldwide.  
    I like looking  ted talks (or smart people on youtube) and when I listen to Brian Greene ,Michio Kaku,  Jordan Peterson etc talk I feel like a idiot  but when I compare myself to you I think I'm pretty ok , thanks for that dude!

    JohhnyC got a reaction from monkeybiker in Covid vaccination. Yes or no?   
    When there is a commitment of such magnitude, its makes sense that it was developed so fast 
    Look at the apollo missions, landed in 1969 , only 12 men have ever walked on the moon and no one has been there since 1972, so seems like we have gone backwards.
    However the apollo missions alone were consuming upto 4.4% of the Federal budget ($640bn in today's money  in terms of %age  GDP) . For comparison the entire US military budget  for 2019 was 3.4%.  Now the  NASA budget is only 0.48% , ten times less that the 60's
    Put enough money and manpower at the problem, coupled with the huge potential rewards you can achieve a lot 
    cue the "we never landed on the moon maaaaaaannnnnnn!!" numpties

    JohhnyC got a reaction from BLUE(UK) in Any gyms still open?   
    You don't need the gym for health , you can run outside in the street (allowed), do body workouts at home. The lockdown rules are to allow essential services to remain open, the gym is in no way one 
    Only a half wit would argue that its an essential need . Jesus the stupidity 
    The government  also agree , people in close proximity sweating and handling machines and weights? Every  county in the world would shut down the gyms  under the same level of lockdown.

    My knees are knackered after 30 years of training , however I am convinced some from of mobility training , e.g. stretching yoga, and proper warm ups are essential . 
    You don't have to do them on your training days , your days off are fine and probably better anyway. The 10 min stretching before a weight session is pretty ineffective anyway, you are far better off starting low weight , e.g. body weight 
    With weight training sometime always gives at some point, your quad may be tight but often it can be the vastus lateralis muscle that is pulling the pulling the kneecap off center and you start feeling it in the outer tendons , so its important in my experience anyway not to ignore this especially as you have bad knees
    Big heavy weights is not necessary, you can still build a lot of muscle with higher reps, lower rest and encourage hypertrophy. Legs are especially suited.  If load up the leg press and do say  8 reps to failure, its guaranteed to aggravate  a tendon in my knee and put me off for weeks.

    from here looks like he had 1750 grafts  :https://www.theprivateclinic.co.uk/blog/mike-thurston-hair-transplant-results-patient-story/
    so perhaps its in line what what my colleague had. He had bugger all hair and that was the harley street ones, not that they make much difference. You are paying for the name I suppose too
    I had eye surgery done many years back and I paid top price as I did not want to f**k around with my eyes . Perhaps they was no need to pay so much 
    Still the amount of cash people blow on other things. A new BMW 530e is 45k I think , I'd image you would drop 15k on that in 3 years with depreciation . Guess it depends on your affordability and what is important to you .

    My wife and two kids both work in Healthcare, 2 of them have had Covid jabs already and the other is getting hers next week. Both of them had Flu like symptoms for about 24 hours after the jab, seem pretty common.
    As far as Hospital Covid numbers go, the local infirmary was pretty much empty during the 'First Wave' but right now capacity has been reached and breached. In the last week there have been people dying on trolleys who could not get a space in the Covid unit. They have now made more beds available in what was supposed to be a new maternity ward.  Next time you think about how you can get round the Covid  rules to get to a gym,  visit someone or make your pathetic excuse for not getting  a vaccine try thinking about the poor [email protected] who are trying to mop up this fuch1ng mess. instead.
    Rant over....for now

    did it ever cross your mind that perhaps they are preventing a mass pandemic, or can you only see what is right in front of you face  ?
    Should we get rid of all airport security because a no one has hijacked a plane in many years ?
    You accuse many of missing the big picture but your view is far too naive also . It was been observed in the real life what happens when the virus is left uncontrolled

    Interesting thread, It's all very pseudo religious.

    Funny to see people angry at one another with a common interest, public health.

    I don't care to get involved in this any further than I already have for the reason mentioned above but I'd like to leave a quote from the World Health Organization for people to consider as many posts ITT are contradictory to this statement:

    "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." -World Health Organisation 1948

    its not cattle thats directly the problem. its such a number of different things
    rapidly rising human population the constant need for more resources running out of space pumping 40 millions tons of carbon into the air every year destruction of forest and natural habitat to make way for more and more urbanisation, plus farms and cattle ranches (especially in the Amazon, where building cattle ranches has led to the deforesting of hundreds of thousands of hectares of rainforest)  
    i mean, don't get me wrong, I eat a s**t ton of meat and im no tree hugger
    but the problem aint just cattle. its the fact that us humans have overrun the planet and we're making a damn fine mess of things too
     
    i think it was Stephen Hawking that said if we dont hurry up and colonise another planet within the next 80 years, we run the risk of extincting ourselves
    the graph says it all... we need to hurry up and get our sh1t together, basically
