    Anyone given up anything during lockdown and beyond?

    For me, weaned off my coffee shop addiction and now saving £100-120 a month for it I'm taking my own coffee to work etc

    Anything you've given up or changed since all this kicked off?

    Any hope of sanity for most people as this is just all BS and no one should be adhering to the agenda

    Dr explaining the pandemic to a coma patient who just woke up…
    Dr: “They shut down the world because of a worldwide pandemic.”
    Patient: “OMG! How many people are infected?”
    Dr : “About 11 Million.”
    Patient: “OMG! 11 million people died?”
    Dr: “No, only 500 thousand… Kind of.”
    Patient: “What do you mean ‘kind of’?”
    Dr: “Well… they keep halving the number of deaths due to double counting, inaccurate tests and mislabeled death certificates. Also, most of the people that die are elderly and dying of other things. There are also people who died because of incorrect ventilator use and other treatments because no-one really understands the virus.”
    Patient: “I don’t get it. So how many died from ONLY the virus… like literally dropped dead in the street?”
    Dr: “No-one. Only in hospitals and nursing homes”
    Patient: “I don’t get it.”
    Dr: “Neither do I, it’s a very confusing time.”
    Patient: “So they cured the other 11 million people then?”
    Dr: “No, most didn’t have any symptoms and in fact they didn’t even know they had it.”
    Patient: “I don’t get it.”
    Dr: “Neither do I.”
    Patient: “It doesn’t sound very deadly. If the other 11 million people didn’t have symptoms then how do they even know they had the virus?”
    Dr: “They were tested.”
    Patient: “But you just said that the tests are inaccurate.”
    Dr: “They are. No-one has isolated the virus so the tests don’t really test for that.”
    Patient: “I don’t get it.”
    Dr: “Neither do I.”
    Patient: “Ok. So when will this pandemic be over?”
    Dr: “When they develop a vaccine to stop the virus.”
    Patient: “The virus that nobody gets or dies from.”
    Dr: “Exactly.”
    Patient: “I don’t get it.”
    Dr: “Neither do I.”

    Me and RMK are challenging ourselves to do a little time off as well. I blame him for my spiralling use tbh. Unequivocally. I like him less for it.

    I've always said there's recreational use and abuse. But I enjoy the abuse. Me and RMK convince each other that well do til X time. Dont think we've got remotely close yet.

    I've gone on to a mainly Pescatarian type diet, still eaten some meat, but that's more to do with there being some left in the freezer and needing eating.
