I apparently have enough TP for 6+ months. Not intentionally, but because I happened to pick up a Costco pack about a month before this all kicked off.

Seems like a bit of a basic tool to me. Far too simplistic, with insufficient inputs required. :)

At minimum it also requires:

- type of diet, at minimum to include how much fruit and fibre
- quality of the toilet paper
- regime adopted in the wiping department
- does a wet wipe form part of the process

There must be a forumite with sufficient coding skills who is currently working from home who could knock up a better model on a quiet day?

UK rail networks temporarily nationalised. Rather quietly.

Very unlike a Tory government. I'm quite impressed to be fair.

Well lockdown confirmed not unexpectedly for the UK.

At least we are allowed one excursion per day for exercise.

At least 21 days initially.

Understandable for certain, but certainly not good for CW.

I watched his announcement and was not surprised.

I’m glad these steps have been taken. As my friend said to me today - people are not generally malevolent, but they are often stupid. We’re all on the same page now, all taking best steps.
Another friend who I was at medical school with is now a senior doc in kids a+e. She asked me to imagine the worst possible night shift that seems to go on forever, then multiply it by a number that nobody can predict yet. She’s going to be stretched way beyond her limits. All I can do is be on the end of the phone. I’ve told her she can share anything.

I think the way the government is dealing with this is admirable. Decisive and swift. It is a unique situation and this may prevent a lot of damage from the repulsive selfish chavs that are out and about taking no notice.

I am still having to go into work although we are doing everything in our power to be as safe as possible. We cannot work from home and I suspect we and the company we have tried so hard to maintain will soon be confined to the history books sadly. Find me another company that hasn’t lost one single member of staff in 18 years! Very distressing times.
Keep well my friends
Cheers now

Virtual queue of 27000 with Ocado.

Without being political, Boris has grown up in the last month, Theresa would've been all over the place and Jeremy - he'd still be in talks with the WHO over whether Covid-19 is dangerous or indeed a virus.
