Not a stupid question at all!

1. Because if I want to irritate people with my stupid opinions then I’ve got my family. And when they block me I’ve got the wilmott.com forum to fall back on.

2. At my age I have to be careful with my blood pressure.

3. I have my ego under control.

(But I do browse Twitter. It’s the fastest way to see who is an idiot, or paranoid conspiracy theorist, or smart, funny, good in a crisis. Or on vacation if I were a burglar.)

It's the benign-looking mutation on the left that you should worry about.

Funny guy. It would be fun if he died.

After the The Grim GP video the newspaper played the video of Batman (a.k.a. Ben Affleck) and his wife walking dogs and picking up poops:

That's all they have left to write about during the shutdown.

Celtic Reconstructionist calendar for you.

Funny how they list Good Friday and the like - that will be next Friday.  I guess we can be naughty until then.

Oh, Thank you,
In the old days my Feb/March calendar was "how many days to the rugby match?" and work backwards.

Why do people read the Economist? They get everything wrong. Maybe that's why people read it. Or if they get things right it's always too late. 

I get emails from them (I have no idea why). The latest says that lockdown will affect mental health. Tell us something we don't all know.
