  • Doc, the Merc is a Perk. !!

    Awesome, they were so over engineered, nothing like the rubbishy new tin snails coming out of the factory these days.

    I'm starting to understand the Doc.fixit handle now :)


    Re: photos, I found if I opened a camera shot in gallery on my phone and cropped it in edit, then I reduced its digital size. On android its quick to do,10 seconds or so.

  • Going briefly back to gloves:-


    Washing up gloves tolerate being soaked in a bleach solution very well and are easy to check for Leaks by filling with water. Use as larger size than you need for easier removal.


    Everyone is almost Gaurenteed to get an itchy nose when wearing contaminated gloves😉... Tape a mask or sock or sanitory pad to your face as physical block and psychological reminder not to touch your face or pick your nose🤗🤔😏😉👍😁

    I can see myself getting beat to shit next time I visit chemist /shop in the next village. There’s probably twice as many Gypsies reside in that village. They are not going to take a strange looking dude in Rigger boots, walking round with a sanitary pad taped to my face well at all. They’ve only just got used to my Silenced Tommy Robinson T Shirt.


    I’ll put some black bin bags over my boxing gloves if I can’t stop picking my nose whenI should be concentrating. :D


    although I’m sure that’s all sound information zendaze. I recon shaving my beard off would reduce risk of internal contamination to a similar extent. The other day while frying a egg, my beard was dragging in the hot vegetable oil.
    When I pull my face mask up from round my neck, I have to pull my beard braid down and through inside the mask. Otherwise it sticks up between my eyes. I look like a ant eater trying to reach food off the ceiling. :)

  • A great little snippet on RT news

    The lack of confidence in the British people and their capacity for good sense was demonstrated by the publication of a 50-page guideline on what UK citizens can and cannot do. This was accompanied by a shiny new Covid-19 ‘threatometer’, which resembles the popular chicken restaurant Nando’s peri-peri spiciness chart. The only thing missing was the specification of the times adults ought to be in bed each night

  • It would be a bit strange of gypsies who have some fairly obsessive laws/rules surrounding food preparation and hygeine to take exception though wouldn't it. 🙂....


    You can disguise and trim the sanitary pad inner mask.



    Cant say its all sound advice but it's the best I've got iand is also amusing👍

  • It would be a bit strange of gypsies who have some fairly obsessive laws/rules surrounding food preparation and hygeine to take exception though wouldn't it. 🙂....


    That’s an interesting statement. I’ve not seen any of the Gypsies, adults or kids wearing a face mask or gloves around here. Quite the opposite. Families enter the coop where kids are moving between complying (distancing) shoppers. Adults and kids walking in all directions around the shop, with no regards to the distancing/way marker signs glued to the shop floor. (Possibility of not able to read a side) these are pictorial signs.


    one family owned site close to me are staying home as much as possible.


    What are these laws/rules regarding food prep? I understand the aversion to not pissing/shitting in the caravan and the many subsequent alternative uses for any shower/toilet cubical built into their caravans.


    Hygiene or fashion? The smart appearance of a young adult Gypsies, White trainers, branded shirts/shorts etc. Tight, creamed/moussed haircut. Bit of bling to polish off for males, and something on the lines of Beyonce/Spice girls, stage wear for the females. Tut tut steve. Not forgetting young wives “dressing young husbands” too.
    The average young adult gypsy does pay a great deal of attention to their image/appearance/hygiene these days. This being two fold. Their ethnicity isn’t visually obvious to employees, clients, general public and the desire to replicate fashion of celebrities to impress the opposite sex.

  • VITAMIN D MIGHT REDUCE COVID 19 SEVERITY:-


    My Google news feed informed me that some scientists have found a correlation between high vit D levels and reduced covid 19 problems.


    It is unproven but suggests that less affected countries demonstrate high levels of vit D fortified foods and/or vit D supplementation.


    The paper further draws from studies that suggest vit D is effective in helping the body to fight viruses.... Might be worth a Web search.



    ... Look up Romany law/tradition/culture for the nuances surrounding hygeine and /or food prep. It's interesting but off topic😉



    Re continence pads.... Ive no Idea if sanitory pads have particular effectiveness so I'm fairly sure continence pads would offer effect but are usually more expensive and therefore may not be as efficacious 🙄😉😁

  • Vit d:


    I dislike repeating myself but the unproven paper specifically refers to:-


    1/Countries where vit D blood levels are high via supplements and fortification of food.... (the paper alleges that blood levels of vit D are lower in Italy and Spain)


    2/ vit D has previously been shown to help the body fight viruses.


    As I said it is unproven but worth a look.

  • You mean they don't take their cod liver oil in Italy and Spain?

    Or don't get out in the sun enough?:)


    But jesting apart, from the statistics of the number of people who have died so far in this country with this coronavirus, rapidly overtaking Italy and Spain, it might appear that very many people here also do not get enough Vitamin D, if this is actually effective in helping the immune system fight the virus.

    To some degree, we can see why this might be the case:


    The coronavirus appears to have worst effects upon those already suffering from severe illness of one kind or another. These people would very probably already be at the disadvantage of being unlikely to be able to get out into the sunlight anyway. And if they were living in care homes it is unlikely that sufficient foods containing Vitamin D would be taken as part of the normal diet. Gone, I think, are the days when the diets of invalids were routinely boosted with cod liver oil, vitamin C, and a variety of essential B vitamins.


    One cannot draw definite conclusions from this, but there is enough empirical evidence to prompt further study.

    (We don't need long in the sun to get sufficient vitamin D, some average minimum of about ten minutes a day for lighter-skinned people, and some 25 minutes a day for darker-skinned people ).

  • I wasted 12mins and 44 seconds of my life watching this overprivelidged cunt justify cuntitude and murder of the hoi polloi.


    I'm glad for the link and glad to see honest and open expression of the values that underpin the shrouded disrespect that politicians and their lackeys have for the hoi polloi and workers.


    I was almost caused to spontaneously vomit by this video.


    It's all ok though folks. Go about your normal business and very soon distancing will be reduced....... BECAUSE the privelidged folk are concerned about an economic crisis happening outside of their castles.


    Fuck me! Is anyone woke (sic [as fuck] )

  • Ultimately I did watch the whole 45 mins (ish) monologue... I found some very small bits about healthcare in Deutschland supportive of my understanding and some of his points about UK nhs and social care also resonated as thought provoking critique.


    Overall though, throughout the the video, he is justifying graduated exposure to risk based on capitalised privelidge.... which is exactly what the UK gvmt is underwriting.


    I can just about tolerate these cunts because I'm not overly invested in their shitty narrative.

  • Islamic call to prayer broadcast from mosque towers:-


    Apparently/allegedly some local authorities are approving the pa broadcast of Islamic prayer because of covid.


    It's insufferable enough to hear church of England bells ringing on occasional afternoons why should anyone (but particularly the non religious) have to put up with such noise pollution in the UK?


    Sure the pa broadcast from a mosque when you visit an Islamic country is welcomed and adds to the experience but WTF?


    WTF is going on?

  • havent heard church bells for years now, are they banned or something?

    I certainly don't miss them & would not want to be subjected to any other religious callings either, shouldn't be a problem here as no mosques near to me...

    That just don’t make sense. Towns and Cities are quieter than ever. Also while mosques are closed the BBC are doing it through the radio.

  • Enabling and encouraging the supply of fast or rubbish food and a zombie inducing sedentary life in front of an idiot screen may not match a garden of Eden with abundant fruits and socialising but by their entitlement behaviour you can bet the diva twats in westminster think they're the ones doing the only real work and taking from the sheeple is their right.

  • Why? Is Allah a bit deaf?


    Whatever, surely your God, whoever she / he / they may be, is / are omnipresent and can recognise a prayer however it is offered?


    NB: Generally aimed at all organised religion - I've always been deeply suspicious of public breast-beating... "Look at me! I'm such a devout (religious person)".
