    Re: Consider This Opinion

    The virus has luckily become less hazardous with each wave. We have been extremely lucky to have largely avoided every wave so far.

    There's another side to the lowered speeds... they'll save fuel aka CO2.

    Re: Pandemics...?

    What also remains to be seen is whether or not Covid will cause cumulative organ damage after repeated (seasonal) infections.

    Re: Shite For Brains Tamaki

    Both Trump and Tamaki seem to be working from the same playbook.

    Re: Help with access to late husband's computer

    I suspect it's the browser passwords she'll need, for the bills, banking, email, insurance, blah blah blah.

    Re: Tesla Model 3 on fire after accident

    Yep, NMC or NCA lithium batteries burn fast and furious, and go off like fireworks - that's why buyers should park their egos and buy the lowly SR variants (which are perfectly suitable), which have...

    What about putting a flap on the opening of the letterbox, and arming the flap?
