Re: expected number of 1-runs

I count three solutions! Maybe that's where I'm going wrong!

Re: What is Borisism?

I’m not supporting anyone. I think they should protect the really old and vulnerable and let the rest get on with their lives. I’m not keen on being locked up and having children suffering. I’d rather take my chances in order for all children to have normal lives. And I think that those playing poli...

Re: What is Borisism?

Dominic Pimenta...how long before we find out about his political leanings? Joined Twitter 2016, thousands of followers, posting dozens of times a day (oughtn’t he be getting some rest?), but old tweets deleted. Tedious.

Re: Italy, land of trash.

I shall add that to the questionnaire. 

I googled after this, looks like Maria D__ R___ M____ J____ (who was not a girlfriend) now has a doctorate and is a left-wing politician near Madrid.

Re: What is Borisism?

I said with Ferguson that breaking lockdown rules is a silly reason to resign. Family comes first, before laws. (There are exceptions in times of war, which this isn't.)

Re: Italy, land of trash.

The sound of Spain (at least to me):
Sarà perché ti amo

Che confusione
Sarà perché ti amo
È un'emozione
Che cresce piano piano
Stringimi forte

The sound of Ibiza 1977 with Maria D__ R___ M____ J____ is www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPx4178mLUQ

Re: Is everyone ok?

Perhaps it's time for an update in this particular thread. I've now recovered at home for a few weeks and have improved to the point of being able to walk around the (long NYC) block and, with some trepidation, up a flight of stairs. 
Excellent news! Now just don't get mugged!

Re: Good things that come out of this pandemic...

78. Moderna's news is good

mRNA [$]\rightarrow[$]  Moderna -- nice. 
Let's hope "what is mRNA-1273?" one day becomes a Jeopardy answer!
When capitalism is destroyed who is going to find the vaccine for the next (A.k.a. final) pandemic?

Re: Models for Covid-19
