  1. Aha......... how did she see you laughing if you had your mask on? I'm getting you reported to the mask police.
  2. I would have thought more scary with mask off.
  3. Do you not think they are in enough debt already?
  4. My supermarket doesn't have a one way system either. Must be just the busier places?
  5. Aye, it's probably not going to affect too many people. On a wider issue, I have never thought it is a good idea to base an economic recovery on trying increase property sales.
  6. It's only a huge relief for folk wealthy enough to be buy a house in the first place. And for folk who just happen to be buying a house at the right time.
  7. How would you know? You've only been here since 2019.
  8. Aye, a significant amount of folk living north of the border want restrictions on people coming from South of the border. A lot of them are staunch NO voters. A lot of the older ones will be the most vulnerable if they catch the virus. This has nothing to do with independence. It's about people's health and safety. The border between Victoria and NSW has just been closed. Nobody is talking about "Independence for Melbourne". And there is nothing racist about it either. Despite what some folk might be trying to tell us.
  9. I see Humza is suggesting these folk are racist. Anybody know what they are doing that is racist?
  10. If you are interested in this sort of stuff you could try googling "PRRA furin cleavage sequence" This example mentions the specific point we are discussing here https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0092867420303287?via%3Dihub "In addition, although sequence similarity values of 96%–97% make it sound like the available bat viruses are very closely related to SARS-CoV-2, in reality this likely represents more than 20 years of sequence evolution (although the underlying molecular clock may tick at an uncertain rate if there was strong adaptive evolution of the virus in humans). It is therefore almost a certainty that more sampling will identify additional bat viruses that are even closer relatives of SARS-CoV-2. A key issue is whether these viruses, or those from any other animal species, contain the key RBD mutations and the same furin-like cleavage site insertion as found in SARS-CoV-2."
  11. Aye. this SARS CoV 2 genome is about 30000 nucleotides, so that means over 1100 differences. We shouldn't get too hung up about % similarities in the genetic code. That is only a tiny part of the story.
  12. It would be interesting to know why a lot of papers seemed to pick up on it on the same day? They can't all have just got round to reading thplinth on the TAMB at the same time, can they? There is a lot of pish to wade through to get to the interesting stuff like this, right enough.
  13. That's old news. Thplinth was posting about stuff like that months ago.
  14. Nae wonder, we've all seen what you've been feeding him.
  15. Looks like you had quite a storm, right enough.
  16. He looks like he has got a combination of constipation and a severe dose of piles.
  17. Even the presenters????? Away tae fuk.
  18. Oh no, he is much more clever than that.
  19. That's not a very scientific thing to say for such a clever man.
  20. I think that's Kirky's problem. Sounds like he is using his as a butt plug.
  21. I think you might be wearing it wrong? Have you read the instructions?
