  2. I think the garage was originally Gillespie's of Paisley and was later taken over by Carlaw's, the family of Tory MSP Jackson Carlaw.
  3. Does it not occur to you that no one knows how long the immunity from the vaccines will last, whether regular boosters will be necessary and how often they might be necessary? In the light of this, do you think the authorities should just make up a story?
  4. Because rhetorical questions require one, otherwise they wouldn't be questions. If I were a mind reader I would have known that your question was rhetorical!
  5. I wasn't really asking, though. Why the question mark?
  6. Why were you asking then? I was simply responding to your query "Or is a sonic boom a type of thunder?
  7. No; but thunder is a type of sonic boom!
  8. Thunder is a direct result of lightning. 🌩ī¸
  9. Off his own "back", when it should be "bat".
  10. By which time he was a West Ham player.
  11. Still our player for next season. In which case he doesn't need to re-sign.
  12. Second AZ jag at high noon today. No reaction to first and, thus far, none to the second.
  13. Resign or re-sign? 😕
  14. Is it not constructive to suggest that you might develop some common sense?
  15. Is it not constructive to suggest that you might develop some common sense?
  16. I It seems to me that, while oaky's head may be stuffed full of scientific knowledge, all of the common sense has been ejected.
  17. Can you tell me why your graphs compare the up to date figures for everything but the XS death rate. How can you compare the XS 2 months ago with today's test and incidence figures?
  18. Who decided to hold the referendum?
  19. Perhaps if you had said "met" instead of "laid eyes on" everyone would have known what you meant! As for your final sentence, it looks like you made it up. Isolationism is not what Scioland and the SNP is about.

  21. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2777389 Key Points Question What is the effect of ivermectin on duration of symptoms in adults with mild COVID-19? Findings In this randomized clinical trial that included 476 patients, the duration of symptoms was not significantly different for patients who received a 5-day course of ivermectin compared with placebo (median time to resolution of symptoms, 10 vs 12 days; hazard ratio for resolution of symptoms, 1.07). Meaning The findings do not support the use of ivermectin for treatment of mild COVID-19, although larger trials may be needed to understand effects on other clinically relevant outcomes.
  22. If you click on the Peace with God section you can read about his Road to Damascus moment. A very odd individual.
  23. I did not suggest that it was exclusively a Rangers issue; the Ibrox "demonstration" just happened to be fresh in my mind. What I said was "I can't , however, condone the behaviour of groups like those Rangers fans who gathered outside Ibrox yesterday.
  24. I, too, was a doctor, although only a humble GP for nearly 40 years before I retired, and was a schoolboy at the time of the Asian Flu pandemic in the late 1950s. By some freak of nature I was the only boy in my class of 36 who did not contract the disease. The Hong Kong flu pandemic of 1968 occurred just after I started ii GP and I remember that our practice of 4 GPs often had over 100 requests for home visits per day. (Yes, those were the days when home visiting still happened). I don't remember large numbers of deaths. Hospitals were not overwhelmed. For me the striking thing about today's pandemic is the numbers of serious illness and deaths, and in view of my age and 50+ years of living with type 1 diabetes I have been taking sensible precautions as advised. I can't , however, condone the behaviour of groups like those Rangers fans who gathered outside Ibrox yesterday.
