    Get tae fuck.

    It's talking about risk ratings and perception/assessment of risk. Something I do an awful lot of work with in my job - and it's correct. Humans don't measure risk very well - so the following:
    Is absolutely true.

    On the first two:
    Terrorism is a tiny risk. Chronic stress hurts more people.
    Lehman Brothers collapse is a single thing. Fiscal irresponsibility isn't sexy - but is the bigger overall risk.

    On the last:
    Astronauts are cool, but nurses do a job that is more important to thousands of people - but don't make for sexy headlines.


    His point about news distorting our perception of what is important is absolutely bob-on.

    You have a severely limited imagination.

    Oh I get it @Job:
    Yep. Your current obsession over plane crashes is absolutely irrational and something you shouldn't be worrying about.

    But you want to, because it entertains you. So you'd rather shoot the reasonable messenger than listen to the sensible message.

    Well yes, but 99.999999% of people who are aware that planes can crash because of poor maintenance and pilot error and then dont fly, dont die in plane crashes.

    Im not watching them for entertainment value, those clips are very slow, detailed and nerdy.
    Im just building a picture of human failings and triumphs, statistically plane flight is insanely safe.
    But 100% lethal to you if you are killled in one.

    You may as well just have posted "flibble" for all you said there.

    I see there's been lots of stories of Coppers and how they've been attacked etc since that copper got stabbed.

    Can see it resulting in more police power.

    When it was first rolled out, they did their first broadcast on 5g, but they hit the cap before they could actually do the live broadcast so they had to get more, lul.

    Our household has already breezed through 310GB this month and by the end of the month we will be over 3 times the data cap amount on the highest package I've seen on offer from EE, my record has been 650GB in a month.

    You traded it for broadband then?

    I'll ask so Job doesn't need to, have you grown extra body parts?

    Yup 5g and caps is nonsense. Bit like home broadband and caps to be honest.

    So, picked up a rash on Monday, on my foot. Think it was loads of bites from bedbugs in a shitty ibis hotel on the way down to chamonix. Itchy as fuck.

    Woke up in the tent tonight. Got another patch. May be a case of hives, although I've never been allergic to anything.

    Bird said "I've got some antihistamines in the car, will go get some". Brings em back to tent. I think only one, she says. I pop one in, swallow, and turn on the light to read the packet.

    She's brought me senokot. A laxative. :eek:

    Probably pretty shitty, and I bet it didn't work for the rash either ;)

    Bit leathery by now aren't they?




    Anyway. Had a right good shit this morning. Picked up some antihistamines and was told they will make me drowsy so I can't drive. Which has turned out great - I'm having a beer between each alpine downhill run (drowsy my arse) whilst the o/h looks on in disgust.

    Win-fucking-win :D

    Waiting for stuff to arrive from China

    I think China Post still thinks it is 1923 and 7 months to ship a small package by paddle steamer is the fastest method of transportation known to man.

    Could you imagine the sheer volume?

    I also think it's super dirt cheap too considering you can get free postage from the other side of the world.
