  1. UEFA Champions League

    What a shame it is that, during a fantastic week for English football (on the pitch) this saga is still rumbling on: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41673969 ? I do sometimes wonder just what it is that makes so many footy-folks talk such complete and utter shiite?
  2. UEFA Champions League

    I'm almost sure that the last time I watched Benfica play United, Eusebio (sp?) hit the bar and Bobby Charlton scored with a glancing header?
  3. Where was the last place you visited

    The toilet!
  4. UEFA Champions League

    Benfica 5-8 Man Ure.
  5. Flu prospects this winter

    This discussion has reminded me of my first year at school (1962): There was a wee girl in my class who went to sleep on her desk, whom I never saw again...I never thought much about it until I later read about 'Childhood Leukaemia'...She wasn't the only one of my generation who 'disappeared'... Thank God for medical science!
  6. Flu prospects this winter

    You are right enough, ciel - last year's flu vaccine was hardly a 100% success...? But, at least a modern form of the Spanish Flu will not kill us all off, like it nearly did before? As far as our war against viruses is concerned, nothing will ever be perfect...But, thank God, Measles, Rubella, Polio, Diphtheria, Smallpox and Whooping Cough have been all but wiped out?
  7. Flu prospects this winter

    But it's impossible to contract influenza from the annual vaccine - the 'virus' it contains is no-longer able to reproduce; it has been 'emasculated', it can no longer force human cells to reproduce it... Of course, no vaccine can protect you (100%) from what you might contract from, say, a pole like what you get in a bus (a few days either side of your injection) but, surely, it's better than nothing?
  8. Flu prospects this winter

    Last time I got flu was at Christmas 2010...Went to stay with my mum & bros, and spent the whole time in bed - freezing one minute, sweating like a pig the next...A common cold is certainly not the same as the flu!

    And eight-out-of-ten people can't tell the difference between S***k and butter!
  10. I do mm...I bought one when I was living in Inverness; however, I never really found out how efficacious it really was: getting up at 5 a.m. meant that I was falling asleep by 7 p.m. Anywho, back to today: it's absolutely peesing it down!
  11. Which is why, these days, I pay no attention whatsoever to seasonal LRFs, weirpig...
