Sweden seem to be heading for the 3 wave, in total they have little over 10.000 deaths more than us Danes, in death / million inhabitants they are at 1275 VS our 406
Still think their approach to this was unfortunate, but to really tell probably i should include price for this past year, but those numbers i dont have.
Yes human life have a price, that fluctuate a lot, even in the same country and the same demographic segment you will find some who life are worth much more than others.

Today if / when you become a target, well make it hard to fight back :) There is a reason some countries run troll farms.
Disinformation people just gobble up

Germany apparently have 1.2 million doses of the AZ vaccine sitting idle, which Germans would rather be without as they prefer the PB vaccine.
I think that is what fall in the "first world problems" category

Denmark are also shining its light of WTF, or incompetence in the openings starting Monday.

So small stores under 2000 SqM in size will need 10 SqM for each customer.
Stores from 2000 - 4999 SqM in size will need 20 SqM for each customer in the store.
But here is the kicker, "mega" stores over 5000 SqM in size,need 250 SqM for each customer, and so there will be less people in a huge wide open store and a smaller one.
And not only that customers in the big stores also have to call and schedule a appointment to visit a huge empty store.
Most of those big stores are probably not even bothering with opening on Monday, and i totally understand that
And malls are still closed.

I dont get it, but assume it is reasoning 101 for Socialists.

O and outdoor sports are also okay now, with 25 people,,,,, which are just what you need to play a football / sucker game :) how convenient.

Apparently, it's an internet meme with "Made in China"prominently photoshopped onto the package.
Humm...they did a good job of using photoshop. I do not think so, because if you look carefully, a hidden one behind it has the same wording that is partly obscured.

It's trivial to do that sort of work in Photoshop. I know from personal experience.

Either way, the image is a meme, widely seen all over the internet, including here on DCT.

So what is your point?

It is very likely is a Photoshop job but it hardly matters whether it is or whether it is really a cheap Chinese novelty toy. It's an internet meme like I mentioned days ago.

FWIW, it is highly unusual for any product to have "Made in China" featured in such large, bold lettering on the front of a product card like that. Usually, the country of manufacture is in a smaller font, usually on the back along with some other manufacturing, marketing and trademark data.

How come it has taken so long to get important life saving information like this out into public?:

Good to have numbers and confirmation that what we have posted in the past is true though!

I think even the regular fly many people actually get thru the eye, just as good and fast a way to get in as breathing it in.
Also why you almost always see front line personnel using a face shield too, at least in our part of the world.

So in short wearing a mask is not a bad idea, wearing a face shield too even better.
But people serious about this should know that already, though maybe not based on scientific evidence, but just due diligence.

If i was paranoid about this i would get a full body latex suit, and some ABC gas mask or similar.
Thankfully i am not that bothered cuz wearing a full body latex outfit i am sure i would look like the Michelin tire guys deformed cousin. :LOL:

Not new news - I read about that theory last fall.

There's been discussion about the protective benefits of eye protection going back to the beginning of the pandemic. It is the same reason some people have been wearing face shields all along as kamkar mentions. Early on in the pandemic I purchased a pair of clear protective glasses similar to what I use in my workshop but I ended up never using them. As with many aspects of the pandemic it has taken time to do these sort of studies. It's the same with masks. It was universally understood that they are highly beneficial but we have much more data now that there has been so much more research into how they work and which ones are most efficacious.

Yeah maybe if i can even things out with inflation things would be better then the one massive bulge i have around the waist instead of the Michelin guys several smaller bulges.
But it would probably be problematic to operate a motor vehicle within the guidelines of the traffic code.

For now i will settle for a haircut, i am dangerously close to full blow hippie look now.
But if all go well with the pending openings, hairdressers not in the #1 wave of openings should open within some weeks.
