The new lockdown measures for Manchester/North sound confusing as hell. You can't have people at your place but it's okay to meet randos outside?

Stay safe, Northern thread ghosts

or in the pub, where lots of people from different groups congregate indoors

During one of the sessions I ran, everyone including my tie-in NPC talked about politics of Forgotten Realms post-Time of Troubles and it was one of the most awesome and cringeworthy nerd experiences I've ever had at the same time.

I'm poo poo at online games but probably DM once COVID is over (god knows when at this point)

Speaking of, kendo is opening back on the 1st of Sept with full transparent face masks which sounds painful. I'm dying to go back but I think that's a pass from me until next year. Argos going to deliver the dumbbell and bench set next week so I hope I can continue the changes and those don't become steel monuments of another failed fitness goal.

Dropping in to say that I got a set of resistance cables and I'm actually really impressed with them. Yesterday I had DOMS for the first time since the gyms closed, it was pretty great. They're dead cheap too, and you can hook up multiple cables to the handles to increase the resistance.

Just fyi for goons trying to maintain fitness in these trying times

Edit- Fitfort is the brand, cost about thirty quid

I went to the gym for the 1st time since March today. It was all very sensibly set up, with limits on the numbers who could enter, sanitizer everywhere and staff keeping an eye on things. I thought I'd been sensible and cautious myself, but I'm aching in all kinds of areas now. A set of dumb bells at home is no substitute for a properly-equipped gym.

The virus is airborne though dude, doesn't matter if they obsessively clean the equipment if you're in the path of a cloud of roni bro breath. And that stuff spreads around everywhere, specially when people are exerting themselves without masks on.

I'm missing the gym like hell but you're a braver man than me

Yeah, no antibodies.

I worked with a few people who had Covid and tested positive.

This was in March. We shared a small coffee room and kitchen.

We turned our theatres into ITUs, we intubated covid patients while wearing full PPE. Donned and Doffed.

We looked after ventilated covid patients.

A few more staff tested positive, a few patients died. But not a scary amount.

We were not stacking up bodies.

We all lived in my department.

I think I'm quite right in saying this was not the healthcare disaster it was meant to be.

In addition to what Fartman said, if you have a mild or asymptomatic case antibodies are unlikely to be produced in the first place. It's looking more and more like the cellular rather than humeral immune system is dominant in milder cases and is responsible for longer term immunity. The most likely scenario is that you were very lucky.

Unlike 60,000 dead people and countless others who continue to deal with long term effects of the virus. Including friends and family of mine.

Enjoy the pub.

I had a lady be extremely upset at me because I asked her if she could wear a mask. Something along the lines of 'I GET ASKED THAT EVERY TIME I COME IN HERE RAR RAR' which, yes. Just say you're loving exempt and get on with it instead of wasting energy being offended that we want to protect ourselves and our customers.

Incidentally the person she was with with made a very off colour joke about wafting Coronavirus in my direction and I seethed a lot under the surface at that poo poo.

The Cotswolds, my friend.

It's 60 acres of land in a small village. It's also loving beautiful, a bunch of converted barns that have been well maintained. The community actually started off in Slough, the building they were in is now a hotel.


I realise I didn't really give any juicy tidbits. People have come and gone in my life that have been damaged by that place. My own siblings have some really bad memories. Mostly my oldest sister, who's trans. Among other things, she said the leader would often randomly barge into her (then his) room and make her come out and interact with the community. Privacy really was a rare thing then. My other sister has been chronically ill since she was 13 and she's said she had been asked by senior members what sin she did to cause her illness. Really hosed up. Most people there had good intentions and really lived their faith, but people are still people and they gently caress up.

The place has changed so much, the couple who founded it have left completely and it's now run by a group of elders, one of which is my dad. Some people go out to work and give their wages to the community, others live nearby and contribute in other ways. They run a retreat house for individuals and groups looking for a prayer retreat and it's such a peaceful, beautiful place to be. It's weird to talk about tbh, because I'm very much not Christian anymore and I don't feel the most welcome there for a bunch of reasons.

Righto, this all kind of confirms my intuitions about communes and that, then. I.e.

1) no religion
2) probably not the best place to raise kids

I feel I can still go ahead with it otherwise

he has made my life more unhappy just by existing, but I cannot 'delete' him from my life without upsetting my sister/neice/nephew.




I will have a 9mm semi-automatic weapon. I wikll break into his house as he sleeps. I imagine sneaking up to his bedroom. He will wake as I open the door, a moment of recognition before I shoot him through both kneecaps. I don't just want him to die, I want him to suffer as he dies.

This kind of stereotyping really winds me up now in a way that it didn't when I was a teen. I knew it was nonsense, and didn't really understand the levels of harm that it could cause. The upper classes get congratulated on their alcohol dependency as having excellent taste in wine, the midde classes get to feel smug that their prescription drug dependency is morally superior, and the poorest people who can't afford the veneer of respectability get funding cut from any programme designed to help them because they're somehow not people.
