Re: Biden and Harris - the first 100 days

Very fast. And very symbolic. Symbolic of not really wanting to bring America together again. " The Power that drove them on and filled them with hate and fury was wavering, its will was removed from them; " People follow all kinds of leaders and tend venture farther that they would on their own. I...

Re: Biden and Harris - the first 100 days

Paris Climate Agreement Arctic National Wildlife Refugee Keystone XL Etc. Took one day to reverse everything :-) I guess it's no reason to panic with the vaccination programme design. The context has changed anyway and we have more useful information from countries which already started the programm...

Re: norway

Actually, both cases were from behind. The last was a lady, whom I took over on quite a steep hill. It turned out that her M was larger enough than my m , so that no matter how much I ducked down to reduce the air resistance, she started taking over shouting something in Norsk from behind - probably...

Re: The vaccines

I'll probably be among the last to jab, and my organism will probably freak out like after every vaccine I remember taking. My immune system is so strong that it's dangerous to stand next to me 8-) BTW, it's interesting how the immune system evolves during our lifetime - weak and defenceless in newb...

Clearly my writing is easy to misread, perhaps my eyesight is going. But this response got me the vaccine early.
Cool! The mRNA one? You'll start growing green spikes in 10 days :-)

Re: norway

I don't think it's safe for Leela on my favourite trail. Another one tried quantum tunnelling on me today. I wasn't excited.

Re: The vaccines

I agree with that opinion. People should be educated and made aware of all facts; familiarised with the concept of uncertainty - not "protected" from knowledge and truth. But this is of course against the idea of a state... "Why are many experts conveying a more negative message? Again, their motiva...

Re: norway

I'm wondering if they make fjellpulk for pets. I saw dogs pulling, lots of people skiing with dogs dressed in funny warmers and shoes running beside them. I thought I could take Leela for a ride. I knew that Norwegians loved skiing (so do I!), but I didn't realise they were so obsessed with it. I of...

Re: Grammar Time!

Sorry, now I see what's not clear. The sentence says that something happens in/at long (or short) term horizon.
