3. I would hazard a conjecture that SARS-Cov-2 (possibly further recombined with other viruses) will wipe out at least the Western civilisation (we have less robust immunity compared to Asia; just like it is speculated to have happened many times in the pre-history or to Native American in Conquista times).
Important study about it: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101 ... 054v1.full (version for ordinary mortals: https://www.latimes.com/california/stor ... n-original)

4. Point 3 may fix it.

1. Die!
2. Still seems like a bad idea, but done.
3. Had it. Do not recommend!
4. Definitely a thing.

Degree of bedwetting: 10 = total incontinent.

Paul 1 (I lose a point for obeying the lockdown law)

Cuch 5 (This is a tough one to call, clearly in denial about most things, might be early onset)

katastrofa 4 (This is surprising, Eastern Europeans are usually more robust than this. Too much time spent in the west.)

bearish 8 (Having a very bad decade)

Alan 2 (Pleasantly surprising. Turning out to be quite a solid chap.)

Trackstar 8 (Trying to hold it together, so superficially looks like a 6. But could flare up at any moment to complete panic. Fooling no one.)

I'm just interested in the science of those problems.

No, I add one point for obeying the law. Obeying lockdown law is a Bad Thing in this context. (Otherwise I'd be a perfect zero!)

Where do you stand on the following?:

1. Trump
2. Brexit
3. Coronavirus
4. Climate change
Reminds me of this quote
“I will not make any deals with you. I’ve resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered. My life is my own.”

1. Trump
2. Brexit
3. Coronavirus
4. Climate change
1. One of many American presidents. Not the best one, not the worst one.
2. Did it change anything? The EU is on the edge of death, being in and being out are practically the same.
3. One of many plagues. Much less lethal than the Spanish flu not speaking about Black Death.
4. Things change. Why should the climate be different?

In brief: yawn.

I give you a 1.61803398875. Has potential. All the others score less well. It's a cause for concern.

First, check with Paul.
