Thread: casual unrelated stuff.

  1. #21
    Okay, so various things.
    Any species has to keep mutating in order to stay up with the competition.

    Variations in things like virus can be in competition with each other.

    Killing the host is not advantageous to a virus, it needs the host to reproduce.

    Being highly contagious and symptom free is highly advantageous.

    We do not know why, but we do know that covid is often symptom free, it is also highly contagious, would it be possible to develop a form which was always symptom free and then provide the conditions for widespread infection and transmission, aerosols in public places, you know. Would that a. dominate the other varieties, or b. give people immunity to other variants, rather than vaccinating them, infect them.

    Hmm. there could be a plot there.

    So today the chancellor of the exchequer presented his budget. Way back when the King collected monies from his Lords the man who worked out what everybody owed had a chequered tablecloth that he did the reckoning on by putting tokens on the squares and moving them around, a bit similar to using an abacus. And that is why it got called 'The exchequer'.

    There seems to be no escaping the scourge, the ingrown toenails of society that permeate every nook and cranny, sometimes hidden for weeks or even months, but then, there they are, out from under the rock, the slimy creatures that serve no purpose but to destroy all that is good in the world. Online, we can use the ignore button as a pesticide, but they're still there; we just no longer see them, but their stench lingers on.

    Foxee quoted "Olly Olly oxen free!" at me in the 'Ban the person above' thread

    There is a South London shout and response you hear at large gatherings like festivals every so often which goes,

    Olly Olly Olly

    Oi Oi Oi

    Olly

    Oi

    Olly

    Oi

    Olly Olly Olly

    Oi Oi Oi

    I have a theory that it is a folk memory. In the days before uniforms rallying shouts were common in armies to let you know who your side were and bring them together. I reckon it dates from Cromwell and the Civil War. South London and Kent was a hotbed of republicans, they were called 'roundheads' because of the 'skinhead' hairstyle adopted by the London apprentices who were one of his mainstays.

    I got 'The Totally Awesome Book of Useless Information' for Christmas, so here's a useless fact:

    The smallest church in the world is located in Kentucky. It can hold three people.
