  1. As I say look at the rates per capita, of course we have an overall higher number of cases and deaths than a number of European countries we have a higher population and population density apart from anything else, that's why looking at the figures per 100,000 gives a far better idea of whose coping with it well, but of course that wouldn't support your argument as there are a number of European countries with rates higher than the UKs.
  2. Actually if you go by the rates per capita (cases & deaths per 100,000 population) we're not near the worst https://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/cases-2019-ncov-eueea but hey why let facts get in the way
  3. Don't forget the outbreak of super gonorrhoea that was promised as well
  4. Sadly piracy is no longer a hanging offence
  5. Bloomin onions are great, I first had one in San Diego in around 98, very tasty.

    Turned 50 at the start of this year and spent my birthday in Vietnam so can't complain, rest of the year has been a bit if a right off but thats nowt to do with my age.
  7. been smacked in the face by the kayak after I got binned in the surf when I first started and had a black eye from it (though not like that one) didn't realise until one of the barmaids pointed it out a few hours later
  8. yup been at it since around 2006 dont do much at the moment unfortunately as too busy with other projects.
  9. yup the s210 will go up to iso 2000, and if its good enough for your needs that's all that matters
  10. Is it the S210 coolpix ? as this has a 8mp sensor and an iso range up to 2000 (although photos taken at this iso will probably be grainy as hell) . iso 2000 isn't that high for a half decent modern digital my 7d came out in 2009 and will go up to iso12800 and the mark 2 (released in 2014) will go up to iso51200. if you really want to push it the 1dx mk3 will go as high as iso819,200 in H3 custom function but will cost you about £6500 without any lenses.
  11. A tenners worth ?! just how bad a shot are you ?

    yep I've listened to both Xhosa and Zulu in South Africa (both have click consonants) as some friends I've stayed with there are fluent in both.
  13. They stopped all flights to and from China is what I think made a big difference where we were still letting flights in and out of countries like China and Italy, when I was there in Feb the popular tourist destinations were pretty quiet but only because the majority of their tourists are Chinese and they had been stopped. There was no social distancing going on, bars and restaurants were fully open and relatively busy (once again trade was down and quieter but that was down to the lack of chinese).
  14. Vietnam locked down travel to and from China early that's true and we should have done the same, but otherwise their lockdown wasnt particularly tight early on as I was there throughout February and businesses, bars clubs etc were all open there was little checking that i saw at the border, we were offered masks but most didnt wear them.
  15. See what I mean, cloud cuckoo land
