  1. Now that has got to qualify for the 'weird science' post of the day award.
  2. I am absolutely digging this new-fangled statistical math of 'quite a number' and 'make up most'. My wife tells me that tonight there 'could be a lot' of rain. Then again 'maybe not so much'.
  3. No idea what you are talking about That i guess is what happens with a post-military education squandered at MIT and CalTech. Should've done Boston College and Harvard like me.
  4. None of that is any of your business and calling me a liar just shows your own ignorance. For my part, any alumni of my university that I know of would not conduct themselves as you are doing. I don't debate or interact with such people. Yes Doctor, right Doctor. For a Brit who says he doesn't like being around moaning Brits and claims to being averse to moaning personally, well...
  5. She's "different" as she's the first (?) woman under 50 to die of Covid in Australia since the pandemic began, so it's getting massive media. https://www.health.gov.au/news/health-alerts/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-health-alert/coronavirus-covid-19-case-numbers-and-statistics#cases-and-deaths-by-age-and-sex That and getting milked for all it's worth by the politicians who mishandled and still continue to mishandle Australia's pandemic.
  6. Didn't the Philippines just put Thailand on red list? That says it all. I read that it's only a 7-day stoppage for Thailand and Malaysia. Unless the Philippines health advisors know something about the Delta variant being infectious for a shorter period (it isn't), then I reckon they are as clueless as their Thai peers.
  7. I don't know of any airline that asks to see anyone's passport when buying a ticket. They will ask to see it and any relevant visas or permissions to enter or stay when they check-in. Most countries permit their own nationals to re-enter their home countries on an expired travel document. This includes That and British passport holders. The OP's wife can travel to and enter Thailand on the expired passport.
  8. I saw a, "Can my girlfriend enter Phuket before I get there and join me in quarantine?" question posted in another thread maybe ten days ago. The answer was no.
  9. I guess you don;t live in OZ AstraZeneca is reserved for people over the age of 60 get it? You're right. I don't live in Australia but I can access the NSW government's Covid advisory website and read the following. If I can do it, so can you. https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/health-and-wellbeing/covid-19-vaccination-nsw/about-vaccine-rollout Who can get a vaccine now If you are aged 18 and 39 years old, you can ask your GP about getting the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine 40 years of age or older, or match the eligibility criteri
  10. What was her federal or state-mandated eligibility for being vaccinated? Had she been vaccinated? Did she want to be vaccinated? Did she ask her GP about getting the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine? Did she have a GP?
  11. Please excuse my Freudian slip masquerading as a typo.
  12. There is a big difference in the words 'immigrant' and 'expat'. Bert, the retired butcher from Bognor Regis, or Helmut, the retired seaman from Hamburg moving to Thailand permanently calls himself an expat, yet a financial advisor from Hong Kong in the UK/Germany is an immigrant. This makes me think it's a superior racial attitude, rather than a snobbish, Colonial-style one. It's all quite easy when you accept that the term 'expat' or 'expatriate' is not and never has been an immigration status. It's a description of a chosen liestyle. I have been an expat since 1977; a Br
  13. sex. OK. That's the next seven and a half minutes accounted for.
  14. The 1918 Spanish flu that was "over pretty fast" was recognized to have run from February 1918 to April 1920, infecting 500 million people during those 26 months and killing anything between 20 and 50 million. The current coronavirus pandemic is only about 16 months old and so far has claimed and estimated 4.16 million lives. Beyond that, any comparison between the two events is totally irrelevant.
