    Depression

    You can get subtitles on skype mate, might help. I tried it briefly with a couple work people and it surpisingly did ok, just a little lag. Doesn't work with Glaswegians, mind.
  2. Anyone heard of the t-shirt rule..? https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52208435 I'm not convinced this will help really.

    Maybe they live together...
  4. I enjoyed it on some, but I think it's a rights issue more than anything. Pretty much all the footage was LCFC I think...
  5. I'll be very surprised if they actually finish on time. Contractors not properly declaring delays is not new, and don't forget there may well be contractual politics at play here too. The site I work on in Glasgow has shut and we've heard plenty about supply chain issues. I imagine the majority of external works and landscaping will probably be less affected but I'd be amazed if they manage to keep on track when they start doing the internal fit out.
  6. Good stuff. I never went camping as a kid but I love it now. Unfortunately I'm not sure the experience would be quite the same with my tent just outside the kitchen window in my 8 square metre concrete yard
  7. I get your point in terms of the first weekend, but much beyond that I'm not so sure spending will be as mad as you think. There are going to be a lot of people very hard up when we're all released again.
  8. Was supposed to be camping in Loch Lomond this week but alas, I am at work. Definitely going camping as soon as the lockdown is stopped so I can get some proper outdoors time.

    I was a little bit, yeah. The thing with our office though is that a decent number of those on furlough are probably going to be made redundant if the government scheme isn't extended and things don't pick up again quickly. For that reason alone I'm grateful I've been kept on.
  10. I'm surprised that anyone is surprised by the positive impact this is having on the environment. The promotion of the car and the way that cities have been built over the last 30, 40 years for the car, rather than for people, has been a disaster for the environment.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/28/as-the-rest-of-europe-lives-under-lockdown-sweden-keeps-calm-and-carries-on Interesting (short) article about Sweden. A lot of the quotes sound a lot like what we were hearing to begin with.

    Corona Virus

    I haven't criticised the government during this crisis for their general handling for several reasons, but I find the call that has been made to immediately house all rough sleepers almost unfathomable. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-52063939 Rough sleeping has rocketed in the time since the Tories started their coalition (https://www.homeless.org.uk/facts/homelessness-in-numbers/rough-sleeping/rough-sleeping-explore-data) and yet now, Local Councils, with no specific funding allocation to do so, have been told to immediately house all rough sleepers. Don't get me wrong I think it's a positive step, but I just don't understand the whole thing. If it's that simple for LAs to find accommodation for these members of our society, then why the FVCK have so many more been sleeping on the streets in the last 10 years?

    Corona Virus

    It's going to keep climbing. We have to remember the number of infections/deaths is likely going to keep rising rapidly for at least another week or so (if not longer) until the impact of quarantine measures starts to show.
