Yes, I can see how it could all get a bit dystopian with a future where we're all living in little boxes plugged up to a virtual world, and that even the virtual house is kind of s***ty because we don't have enough tokens or something . They'll probably even throw a virtual covid in the mix. Can't have us getting away from it that easily!

Yep, sitting in our pods wearing headsets while they feed us the bugs.

God, let's hope not.

If seemingly we are going to have a different variant every few months we need to just get on with it, making sure the weak & vulnerable are protected whilst the rest of us get on with it.
Something they seem to be doing ok at in Arkansas, Texas & Florida & not so well in Democratic states such as New Jersey, New York & California where they've locked up everything & achieved little in real terms.
It looks like NYCs new mayor is already thinking along these lines as is the (Newish stand in Governor)

In a few months the situation may well be very different. Once some level of herd immunity has been established, through vaccination and infections, then we can start to relax things again, especially in the warmer weather. I think hospitals will have to continue avoiding an infected staff member being in direct contact with the vulnerable. So how they are managing will still be the barometer which determines how quickly things change.

Headsets and pods? Luxury! Whipping and waterboarding 25 hrs a day, and you'll pay for little pleasures like a car battery on your balls. You'll work down lithium mine for a ha'penny a year. And you'll be damned grateful; kids today!

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

If you have never seen WALLE the Pixar movie it's worth a watch. Very funny and I think smart about what the future of the human race will be.

Said that this time last year in anticipation for the return of freedoms once the vulnerable were due to be vaccinated. If there’s another highly transmissible variant next autumn or winter, what then? Close hospitality for good? End western way of life for most?

It seems different now. The variants are declining in their ability to produce severe reactions, even if increasing in transmissibility. We are learning all the time where to set the balance. Once the NHS is able to function without too many problems the brakes will be eased off I think.
