    Btw that Orton v Edge match sucked so bad I think it gave *me* coronavirus.

    Given the scripted nature of wrestling, the athletes can work together to get through a match so if training/conditioning was impacted in the lead up, they can manage it. With two MMA pros hungry for a payday and likely at least 1 having a compromised camp, I can see lots of fights ending badly. Who provides medical support on a freaking Mortal Kombat island? Or are losers fed to sharks?

    Also, did they really have Ottobre choke Edge with some gym equipment? That seems a little...risky...to say the least.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Really? I thought it was one of few matches worth watching, and I watched both days.

    Our club was born in blood and boots, not in AFL focus groups.

    A friend has an interesting theory.

    Northern hemisphere countries are being hammered by CV at the end of their winters
    -> lowest levels of the year of Vitamin D in their communities.

    Southern Hemisphere countries have relatively fewer infections and deaths at the end of their summers
    -> highest levels of the year of Vitamin D in their communities.

    If correct, then we have not seen the worst of it as we head into winter. Also a good argument to boost your Vitamin D levels.

    Vitamin D sales are up substantially so there is something to this as people prepare for this. The colder weather increases the chance of infections anyway.
    I think the counter view of this might be that Northern Hemisphere countries are vastly richer and have completed more testing and are just further advanced in identifying it. African and South American countries might not have done the testing
    Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
    Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.
    And what started here will indeed have changed the world for the better.

    What is it like for a healthy 34 year old to get COVID 19?

    After 10 days of hell, take it from me: you don't want to catch this virus

    I took my mum to hospital this morning. She is 81 and I'm wondering if she will ever come out.

    Yet the majority of under 50s who get it recover without too much issue. There will always be outliers.

    Oh that’s dreadful Twodogs. Hoping your Mum might be fortunate like that 94 yo in ?WA? who was just released from hospital after recovery from covid. My thoughts are with you and your Mum.

    Really sorry to hear that.

    Does she have CV symptoms or is it something else?

    Yep, but if you let the spread get out of control the outliers become significant numbers in themselves, notwithstanding the actual deaths that make the rarities outliers just escalate. Here's a video to give an understanding of the issue from a more alarmist though possibly real perspective.....unfortunately it's hard to understand like any YT video the veracity of the content because it isn't reference properly:

    Mum is out. She is pretty crook but she says that her mum and three of her siblings went into Footscray hospital and never came out again (or that *!*!*!*!ing hospital isn't going to kill me too as she put it) she's had a coronavirus test and we will get the result tomorrow hopefully.
