Cos they're not dead yet. 51 recovered, out of 100,000! That's 99,949 walking infection machines still out there. They might never (statistically) recover!

I still think you need to get a grip. The only difference between this outbreak and SARS or Swine flu is that people are able to spread rumours much more quickly than ever before.

Seriously, stop scaremongering.

As far as I can tell from reading between the FUD lines, it appears to be a glorified flu which is unpleasant to have and not possible to prevent or cure, but whose symptoms can be treated fairly effectively and which are of little significant medical threat to a healthy adult. Or have I misunderstood and is this another reason to start digging the bunker?

I thought as a fully paid up North American, said bunker would have been well under way by now?

Is there not a bit of scaremongering going on here? I'm the first to question anything that comes out of Chinese state media, but I'm not a sucker for conspiracy theories telling me there are thousands of dead people in the streets.

Get a grip!

Surely you were displaying a valid ticket?

It's just that the parking operative was unable to verify this.

It's clear what the path of least resistance is. The may be mileage in a written challenge. There may not be.

Personally I've not had a problem, to date, with checking that the parking ticket is visible before I leave the car park, after I've locked up the car. That's the great thing about O.C.D. - you bother about such things.

Indeed. And with phone apps allowing you to pay for parking these days, my OCD can be mitigated by constantly checking my phone to make sure my parking time has not run out.

Yes. You could make yourself a martyr and spend a fortune going to court to prove your innocence, or you could just grumble at the unfairness of it all and cough up the £25.

Thankfully we have an effective ventilation system.

It only gets damp when Mrs Shady turns it off because the tiny hum on the other side of the flat through three walls is supposedly keeping her awake. Nothing to do with staring at her phone just before bedtime of course.

It's a shame that anonymous posting was killed by spam, because Finbarr Saunders is dying to say "Fnarr Fnarr".
