    So what is happening?


    A search on that tag reveals little. I found this video, I was able to put up with about 50 seconds of it. From what I gather the changes have been around but not strongly enforced until recently and relate to videos that you've uploaded and want to get ad revenue from.


    Just why this guy posted his video which doesn't seem to explain anything is beyond me. Good for a larf though...

    So, if they're a hoop then  there is a chance they're clean enough. If they're a stud, then you might just be surprised at the dirt that doesn't get washed clean in the shower .


    also lucky on the phone bizo 🙂 ... i washed a samsung of Walt's a few years back ( entirely his fault ) it worked afterwards, but never with quite the same alacrity as before it's wash


    They're huggie hoops and when I pull them out nothing is ever stuck to them, unlike studs I've worn in the distant past. They do get a little gross.

    Surely it's not going to be many months or a year ... isn't China already showing that they're coming out the other side of it ?


    It's already been four months for China, and can you really believe that the spread is slowing down? More likely that people aren't being tested or reported as much. 

  4. I only really wear one pair of earrings at any given time, and they stay in my ears until I lose one. They get washed in the shower with me each day 😄


    True story on the subject of phone washes.


    I was cleaning a clients bathroom and after I'd finished I'd forgotten my phone in there. I went back for it and it was gone. I asked the client's 6yo daughter if she'd hidden it and she giggled, saying I should guess where she put it. After a bit of a search I asked her to tell me and she said it was in the toilet. I thought she was joking, but she wasn't. It was only half submerged but I can report that my Samsung S7 survived with no ill effect and Miss 7 got a stern talking to from her parents, who were rather mortified.

    I bet $1000 he doesn't die.

    They should just ban everyone over 70 from going out and let everyone get it and get over it as quick as possible instead of stretching it out.

    Waiting for info from WHO is like waiting for Goto!

    Like everything else that is UN related............fucken useless.


    I posed this idea elsewhere a week or so ago.  I think it will more or less play out that way through necessity, but we're taking the slow road towards it. How the medical system will cope is another thing. Some people will get sicker even if they're not very old or immunocompromised, and an even greater population will turn up to the GP or hospital even if they will recuperate on their own. You'd also have to ask medical staff, carers and family members to stay with the elderly or ill people to look after them for a lengthy period of time until the  virus dies down - possibly months or even a year - and  that's a big ask of anybody.


  6. I don't think there's a chance in hell that COVID-19 isn't all over the country now. Few will be tested. It will be massively under-reported. However, I'm glad to know that Dutton was tested and reported on. Imagine how many people he's given it to already,  some of which are likely to have been transient in Australia and taken it elsewhere.
