And I REFUSE TO SANATIZE MY HANDS!

This reminds me of an old joke someone used to say to anyone who couldn't tell left from right.

"Which hand do you use to wipe your bum?"

"This one!"

"Well you SHOULD use toilet paper!"

You wont believe this.   I just went down Lidls to get some steak.   Security guard calls me out as I walk past & I ignore him. Gets my steak walks to the credit only till

Some images of today's demonstration in London (not taken by me personally).                

Fuck the fuck off.

Why the sticker? I assume it is so people know that are not wearing a mask and that the person not wearing a mask is exempt. Surely if they have no mask that is easy enough to see without a sticker and if they are in the shop they are exempt and even if they are not, what difference does it make. 

 

This mollycoddling of the adults in the UK is beyond ridiculous now. Grow the fuck up, pull up your big boy pants and go to the shop like an adult.

I'll have a sticker if it means i can go in to the shop without being asked about my mask. I'll stick it on my forehead.

Because the yellow star/sticker is a symbol of acquiescence.

 

It says:

"I cannot wear a mask because of health reasons OTHERWISE I WOULD"

 

These last 3 words are the reason that I will don neither sticker or lanyard,call me stubborn but the more they push this Eartha Kitt the more I will resist.

We need more people to start saying they are not wearing a mask because they do not work and there is no contagious virus to justify wearing one anyway. Instead at the moment we are all hiding behind fake exemptions, myself included.

what if..................it's over by summer and we return to normal?

 

They could bluff us and try reverse psychology.

 

 

That's interesting thought, perhaps this is the first phase of a very long term plan, give us a couple of years of relative normality and then hit us again with another 'problem'. It would be a perfect way to destroy all of our arguments and fears about what's happening now. However if they did ease off would they lose the momentum that they have built this last year? Anything is possible.

Agree, perhaps although we are brave people as we don't mask up, maybe we need to be even braver and acknowledge that we aren't exempt because there is nothing to be exempt from.

Covid is just a word. It doesn't exist so it can't have any meaning.

Yep the Cov-Sars-2 Virus has never been isolated. Research Koch's postulates!

So what the fuck is going on with this nurse, Tiffany Pontes Dover ? 

Collapses on the 17th December live on   TV after taking the jab, a video allegedly showing her fit and healthy appears on the 21st albeit sporting a different hair style, masked up and silent.  Since then ,nothing, no follow up , zilch. No longer active on her social media pages which are bizarrely left completely open. There are now around 24k posts on her own FB page discussing her and the situation. No friends or family getting involved.  If she and/or her family feel harassed as a couple of dubious contributors have suggested ,  why then hasn’t she piped up with a ten second video “hi all , thanks for your concern , I’m doing fine thanks “ and everything then goes away. At the very least , why hasn't she made her page private ? It’s odd that it appears comments are being deleted but the page itself remains open. 

She (and those around her) sound like a construct in my opinion. Her FB page appears dubious with an unusual lack of ‘likes’ and general contributions from her  circle of friends and family and a few suspect pictures. 

Its bizarre and I have no idea how it’s going to play out .

I was.. before covid, a rescue diver but dont go deeper than 40 meters.

Never dived Dahab but everywhere else in Egypt.

Dahab they do the tech diving, im more into reef diving like yourself... I dont get a thrill from going deep, think its stupid personally.

(off topic - sorry) 

I did the Rescue Diver and Dive Master courses in Australia. 

Rescue Diver course was the hardest thing I've ever done physically. 

2 full days in the water rescuing over and over and over again. 

Getting 'unconscious divers' out of the water over and over again. 

Dive Master course was a doddle compared. More acedemic than anything tied in with a full dive site survey and planning. The swim test was a breeze. 

BTW - I'm stupid :0)

I dived off Gozo near the (now disappeared) Azure Window at a depth of 55 metres. 

Narcossis is exactly like tripping on mushrooms or Acid - dangerous when you get the uncontrollable giggles and struggle to keep the DV in your mouth 😂 

(BTW - best dive site in the world is Fiji - Sharks / Manta Rays / Dolphins / Squid / Lion Fish - the whole shebang - crystal clear warm water)

I start with "I don't wear a mask" and see what they say. Hopefully one day, they will just let me in. Up until this point they say "are you exempt" and then I have to make up some medical excuse so that they are not liable. I also say "I am willing to take the risk" and "I am not sick".

Maybe we could crowdfund a private detective to find out what is going on?

You're just jealous that you haven't been diving 😉

BC 😂

 

He's probably a more experienced (muff) diver than you are BC! You can't discount age and experience. 😉
