    Can I just say...

    ... the system glitch was probably the best thing that has ever happened to this part of the forum. Some of you may have even done something crazy. Like going out, calling a friend, taking a shower, travelling to the Galapagos. Others probably tried to poison themselves. Now, happily we can resume with the daily business. Where were we? Right, Lockdown is crazy in one thread, a must-do in another, statistically speaking statistics are lies with numbers in them and the sock puppets will kill us all, but only the UK variants. And the Brazilians. And Texas, ooohh Texas. Popcorn, anyone?
  3. HR apparently working on a new model, to be presented later this year. Any idea what the size might be? They are playing the teasing game: Snippet looks like it's rather on the larger size range. I would so wish to see a new HR in the 30 ft range. That would be a hot-seller for couples, in my view, and a perfect successor to the 310. But my guess is that the economies don't add up in that range for HR, minimum seems to be the 340 for longer?

    They are very good at knowing stuff, you know? They knew...
  5. I said to my wife the other day: if Facebook and the likes had been around when the first polio vaccine was rolled out, we would still be in deep shit today.

    The UK Variant

    That's what it looks like when you're being 'finnished'.

    Why is it getting better? US / world

    I agree on the point that we in the 'western world' have become masterful at prolonging life, only to find that we often have no real idea of how to use it. But it is a whole new world of a problem and only partially intersects with this one. And, as in this case, too quickly in an absurd and cynical way.

    Bullshit, now that's a metacognitive word.

    Why is it getting better? US / world

    Both. It's the Dunning-Kruger effect in full display. // It is related to the cognitive bias of illusory superiority and comes from people's inability to recognize their lack of ability. Without the self-awareness of metacognition, people cannot objectively evaluate their level of competence. Colloquially, people experiencing this bias are said to be "on Mount Stupid".//
