there is zero evidence we need any fluoride added to water, let alone more.

will be buying my flouride filter today...

Just saying is all

And as before I continue to remain myself, individual and intact.

Make you own choices.

LOL Britain is such a Nanny state. from 10p plastic bag bo***cks to 'sugar taxes' on drinks.
It's acute to me as I spend a fair bit of time in Thailand where no-one seems to give
a toss about rules (just approach an intersection in Bangkok. On Red? Green? who cares? 'Mai Pen Rai'..)

Yup, so it seems. And since most of the fish Britons want to eat (cod, haddock, prawns, salmon) is not caught here, this is a massive problem in both directions. As a nation we mostly don't want to eat much of our catch (mackerel, sand eels, etc) and don't want to pay for the rest (sole, langoustine, etc). Though I'd love to see dogfish back in chippies (rock salmon or huss, as it was often called).

Sorry, but you’ve all been ‘had’ in Blighty
Economists, traders, importers to border control specialist all warned that a hard Brexit would be catastrophic, but michael gove told brits ‘we’ve had enough of experts’. the military boots governments out by force for less in Thailand and frankly I think that wouldn’t be a bad idea there now. Johnson kicked out and a technocracy of generals, doctors and scientists installed to deal with covid and Brexit . Democracy (PR not FPTP) restored when the population can prove itself not to be complete idiots.

If you want to feel appreciated and enjoy yourself try the GPC or BPU, if you want to be put off lifting for life go IPF LOL.

A few years ago looked after a couple of novices from our gym at a YNEPF (IPF) meet in some gym in Morley (“fight science” or something) - one lad failed his squat after spending a good 10s waiting for a squat command with head judge insisting his legs and hips ‘absolutely straight’ - by time he actually got to do the movement he was spent, failed to come out the hole, confidence completely shattered and didn’t get a lift in IIRC.. this was an 83kg first timer with 130kg on his back ffs, zero chance of qualifying. Needless to say he never competed again

Just use ours for rice tbh

Got one of those tom yam grills though from Tesco Lotus and they’re awesome for grilling and boiling meats + veg

Rick said:That said, we completely should not be where we are. We should have locked down hard at the start and not unlocked until prevalence was near zero (probably only a few more weeks), with aggressive track trace and isolate. The places that did this have had much less time in lockdown and much better outcomes in every way

So you're half right. The UK's response has been s**t and damaging. I can't agree with your apparent prescription, though.

The difference between south east Asia and UK is staggering (all ASEAN countries have seen a handful of deaths). 6th jan last year the Thai authorities were temperature checking all Chinese entries into Suvarnabhumi airport; at the time it was pretty much an odd spike in pneumonia cases seen in wuhan and nowhere else. it didn’t take long for borders to be completely closed, harsh curfews and lockdowns. The Johnson regime otoh has done nothing but dither, delay, flown in the face of much of the science and all the while siphon billions of public money toward their inept chums. The end result?
100,000+ dead, the UK economy in the toilet and even now the Johnson regime is administering the vaccine in a way contrary to any other country with this untested long delay between doses.

JCarter123 said:I don’t know much about cars but I have an RS3 (2012, automatic). Would it be better to get a stage 3 tuning or pony up and get an RS6?

Basically, that ~1 second to change down gears when you put the foot down feels like an age.

RS6 for sure over a highly strung RS3.
Although being biased, I’d say the M5 is even better - a remap away from being over 700bhp. You’re going to be scaring aventadors at that level in a car you take your gran shopping in

PeteHodgson said:Anyone supercharged a Lexus is200?
No mention of American presidents or Covid please :-)
(I can’t see this being a very big thread tbh!)

Aren’t they Naturally aspirated?
Always prefer a turbo over a supercharger as they don’t incur the parasitic loss a supercharger does and just seem a lot simpler to setup. Can imagine a NA engine won’t be setup to deal with the significantly different levels of pressure (pistons are probably quite high compression etc).. I’d get the engine fully forged with lower compression pistons, beefed up rods, ported head and better valve train and cams.. something like a Garrett GT3582 or Precision 6466 turbo on a 2L engine is immense

Funky_monkey said:Watched the video of Thor vs Ward. No technique, very slow on his feet. I see Hall smashing Thor's ribs in during the first round if they have a proper fight and not an exhibition style thingy.

Hall looks significantly faster, both on his feet and hand speed on his recent training vids compared to that ponderous outing. can’t see past Hall if they fight properly.

Pointless tonight asked "name a UK city with a "T", "O" or "P" in its name"
Salford scored two

Not many realise Salford is its own city separate from Manchester. Lived there for a while
and one problem is Salford has, is it doesn’t really have a ‘city centre’ of any note.. the precinct is about as good as it gets (or “Salford shopping city” as it’s been renamed)

PeteHodgson said:Have all you guys been furloughed for a lot of the year then?

Nope IT contractor, so no help from Unisys rishi (if you’re a contractor/self employed you’ll know all about the Tory assault on SME limiteds over last few years)
Luckily was able to get plenty of remote work so it’s worked out well in the end

Should I have it?

Is it an attempt to control my mind?

I’ve had them yearly since 14 alongside pneumovax every 5 years due to my splenectomy - sometimes feel a bit run down afterwards. I am married so my mind is fully controlled already Grin

Wayne_Cowdrey said:I didn't bother much with the forum for a while, but then popped in to ask them if their sightings matched Patty (the squatch in the famous footage). This wasn't well received. Seriously, what is wrong with that question??? I then chipped in using my other persona and commented that the forum is unfriendly if you're not part of the 'in crowd', and I was then told to "have some cheese", which I'm guessing indicates disapproval? Confused Grin

‘Does it look like patty?’ Depends if they used the same fancy dress shop as Paterson and gimlin when hiring out their gorilla suit
