If the French don't like it, the EU doesn't like it, and China doesn't like it, you know its a good idea!

The only way to get down to zero covid is to have zero people. Maybe that's what we have to do, to defeat this terrible disease that only leaves 99.99% of people who get it alive.

The most racist sport in the world continuing to show its true colors.

The good things don't make the headlines, like when Saka got a standing ovation by Brentford fans to show support after the racist abuse he got this summer. You're not very smart.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 4,989 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 18,822 See in context

Its pointless to keep tallying up these numbers. The countries with high vaccination rates, e.g USA, UK, have shown, the vaccines don't stop transmission as much as was hoped. Its here, its endemic, we just have to deal with it.

Posted in: As pandemic Olympics come to a close, Japan asks: What did Games mean? See in context

For the 2 weeks a bit of patriotism kicked in and helped by Japan's medal count a lot of people got behind it, but that will fade quickly. That photo of the stadium in Ariake with no spectators allowed in while the bridge overlooking the stadium is crowded with people trying to catch a glimpse of the action... paints a thousand words.

Posted in: Italy beats England in penalty shootout to win Euro 2020 See in context

The way to choose penalty takers is to wait until the end of the game and ask the players.. who feels good about it. Having confidence after having a good game is way more important than how many you scored in training. Asking two players who barely played in the tournament if they wanna come on and take a pen with their first touch is stupid because they're never gonna say no as its their one chance to appear in the final, they will say yeah no matter how shaky they are about it. That was Southgate's second mistake. First mistake was telling them to defend it out if they got one nil up.

Posted in: Euro 2020 final: England can finally end 55 years of misery See in context

The jammy English had "the luck of the Irish" with this dubious win that hinged on an undeserved award of a penalty shot.

It was like the third 50-50 penalty call for England in that game and it was coming all day long with the number of runs England were making at pace into the box. No way Denmark were getting a dodgy penalty as you need possession of the ball in the penalty area for that!

Yeah good luck with that. The whole thing is about to fall apart, look at Barca and Real Madrid they are bankrupt. Same thing coming to the EPL. All those players on huge contracts, DAZN pulled out of showing the UCL here.. no one is watching these empty games with no fans!

When I was expecting my two, people often commented on who they would take after. As it turned out they both take mostly after not me exactly, but my side of the family. It's what babies do, they mix and match the DNA they're given to play with in the womb.

Really? Thanks for sharing.

Thanks to Brexit the UK wasn't hindered by EU bureaucracy, could vaccinate early, and lives were saved.

Posted in: Bitcoin pulls back from brink of $50,000 See in context

Bitcoin was supposed to be a daily transaction currency.

Where was it claimed it was supposed to be so?

What else could it have reasonably have been expected to be? A commodity? A practical joke?

it failed miserably at that.

How can you claim that when the value hasn't stabilized yet?

It nothing to do with value. If the transaction times are in the order of 10 minutes and there are massive issues with scalability, its simply not that.

India is banning it outright in a few months

You may as well try banning oxygen. Cryptocurrencies are there, aren't blockable, and are untrackable. All India can do is ban cryptocurrency exchanges.

Governments can ban anything. You can still do things that they ban. And then they penalize you for it. That's generally how banning things works.
