    Baz-- reacted to Kazza61 in National Lockdown   
    Are there pockets of inefficiency? Sure - the NHS is the biggest employer in Europe and one of the biggest in the world so I’d be foolish to claim every single bit of it runs at 110% efficiency 110% of the time. That said, I’d be willing to wager that that mouth is attached to a nurse who doesn’t work in ICU or in a medical ward or an elderly ward currently? And if she (or he) is and is sat on her hands she should be speaking out and declaring she has capacity to help out elsewhere. My own specialty is mental health and I know for fact, the wards are absolutely stretched as tight as a drum at the moment dealing with outbreaks, staff sickness and staff isolations. And I know that all sorts of staff (from smoking cessation nurses to psychological well-being practitioners) are now being deployed to those wards to keep them as safe as possible. Staff are even being encouraged to “sell” their remaining leave and have money for those days rather than take them so the service can keep them coming in.

    If it pressure issue then depending on the boiler type, just turn the in valve on until back up to pressure.  We used to have to do this all the time when we purchased a converted church hall  in Cornwall. The boiler was complete s**t.   Ours was an oil boiler so not sure if this advice crosses over to your problem.

    Yep  watching this on Sky news. The new new strain! 
    A lot of talking heads really trying to ramp up the fear again and calling for harsher measures.
    I could see us being imprisoned for quite a while in the new year.
    When the fuk are the lemmings going to wake up and realise this is all a complete load of bllx.
    The only way I can see out of this sh1t is if people just stop taking the stupid fuking tests.
    We got a letter from the school asking for permission to routinely test the kids next term. Told em to get to fuk.

    Watching SKY news earlier, they got this gunt Neil Fergersson back on there telling us all about the "new strain."
    Wasn't this gunt discredited and fuked off for breaking the lockdown that he was responsible for creating.
    The dude is a complete psychopath hellbent on notoriety. His previous predictions have been beyond ridiculous.
    In any other field of work he'd be unemployable.
    "Imperial College epidemiologist Neil] Ferguson was behind the disputed research that sparked the mass culling of eleven million sheep and cattle during the 2001 outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease. He also predicted that up to 150,000 people could die. There were fewer than 200 deaths. . . .
    In 2002, Ferguson predicted that up to 50,000 people would likely die from exposure to BSE (mad cow disease) in beef. In the U.K., there were only 177 deaths from BSE.
    In 2005, Ferguson predicted that up to 150 million people could be killed from bird flu. In the end, only 282 people died worldwide from the disease between 2003 and 2009.
    In 2009, a government estimate, based on Ferguson’s advice, said a “reasonable worst-case scenario” was that the swine flu would lead to 65,000 British deaths. In the end, swine flu killed 457 people in the U.K.
    Last March, Ferguson admitted that his Imperial College model of the COVID-19 disease was based on undocumented, 13-year-old computer code that was intended to be used for a feared influenza pandemic, rather than a coronavirus. Ferguson declined to release his original code so other scientists could check his results. He only released a heavily revised set of code last week, after a six-week delay.
    So the real scandal is: Why did anyone ever listen to this guy?"

    It’s only fractionally reserved though and the more they print the less that fraction becomes, in reality the backing doesn’t mean much if people start cashing in their dollars it collapses.

    Add to that that, conservatively around 20% of paper USD is fake, and probably being printed as fast as the real ones, its a precarious system.

    Well - it's all relative but I think Eth is a very very safe bet.

    So many project built off Eth and the move to POS.
    Massive institutional investment in Eth also - HUGE.

    https://cryptopotato.com/grayscale-reports-major-eth-purchase-ethereum-trust/

    According to a report issued by Grayscale to the SEC, the company revealed having purchased 11455 ETH for a total of $74,135,609. The decision follows a terrific year for Ethereum, with the rise of DeFi projects and the launch of Ethereum 2.0 as the leading reasons behind the price rally of its native token, ETH.

    BTC will never be a tangible currency. It is touted as a currency but in reality, it is not. It is a non-tangible stock driven purely but market sentiment. That is all.

    Now the concept of block-chain currency may well prevail long term, but we will not see a single currency worldwide. It simply will never work.

    Fury by KO.
    Joshua cannot take a dig and is typically there to be hit.
    Fury will outbox him.  Would’ve said Fury on points as didn’t think he was heavy handed but the last Wilder fight changed my view on that entirely.  I actually think he’ll make Joshua look amateur, clumsy and stiff.
    What will also be interesting will be Joshua’s reaction to NOT being the crowd favourite.  I think it’ll get to him big time and I don’t get the impression he handles adversity well.
