        No, he says if it drops by more than about 6.5% “for a significant period”. I don’t know whether he defined the duration that qualifies as “significant” for the purposes of his model, but if he did, it didn’t make it into that report. Could be two weeks, twenty years, or five centuries for all we can tell from that

          My attention span is very low and to answer the OPS question, "Is the cure better than the problem"

          I read the first few pages, but he's right to ask whether curtailing the entire world to save a few, versus the economic impacts and who would die is a very basic admirable question.

          This is then followed up with, what cost is a Human Life! My god how could you place a value, on human life versus money, is somebody worth $$$$$ or less in another country $$$$?

          Then a whole load of scientific crap versus some Brexit crap versus some numerical arguments that IT / Autistic people like to throw up.

          Personally, the longer I go on, the longer I live, the less I care. This is all a fukcing game of mathematics, of chance, of impossibility. One defunct boredom to another. So I'm going with this theory. Elon Musk: The chance we are not living in a computer simulation is 'one in billions' | The Independent


          I still can't escape it, but I aint falling for it.

            You know you are allowed out for daily exercise? Just make sure you walk, run or cycle from your house and back again.

              In summary, are you're saying a human life is worth more than £3.50 + VAT ?

                Has NLdyUK lowered her rates again? I did tell her that it's a race to her bottom.

                      I'm surprised cycling is officially sanctioned to be honest when we're being told not to make unnecessary journeys by car because of potential RTAs putting extra strain on the emergency services.
