I am a confirmed non believer in any gods or supernatural beings and will remain so unless I am shown evidence to the contrary. I dislike being called an atheist as it is a label attached non believers by theists.

Lyme disease..
Moravian comments on Jun 9, 2019:
That's tough. I have had dozens of tick bites over the years but only once had the tell tale rash, Lyme disease is not so common here but with the milder winters ticks are much more common. I asked my GP for a course of antibiotics and his exact words were "We don't usually give them at this stage" in other words we wait until the disease is established and then have much more difficulty eradicating it. I insisted and he relented and I had no symptoms at all. I have known several people with the full blown disease including a friend who is now in her eighties with a myriad of health problems which may or may not connected to it. I would think the sooner you get treatment the better Good luck.

It is always a problem for pets when we humans like to make loud bangs for some strange reason . Years ago my cross lab bitch disappeared on 5 Nov, when we celebrated the non blowing up of parliament by setting off noisy fireworks, I found her a few days later at a nearby dog shelter where someone had taken her after finding her wandering a few miles from home. For the rest of her life she was terrified of any loud noise. Maybe sedation is the only answer

Painful Leg Cramps
Moravian comments on Apr 11, 2019:
Thanks for the link. I rarely suffer leg cramps whilst hiking but am frequently woken in the night with cramp in one calf. More often right than left. I try to limit my intake of salt due to hypertension and don't drink much in the evenings to avoid having to get up in the night for a pee so that could be one reason. Worse than that is cramp in the thigh muscle. A few times after an all day strenuous trek I have had cramp whilst driving home. Trying to find a spot to park and hop around and stretch to ease it can be a problem whilst other drivers look at me as if I have gone crazy.
Sounds familiar...

A lovely guy and a great intellect. I don't watch QI anymore now that he has left it. I believe the term was initially used by the conservative right in politics to describe the far left in politics. they were "politically incorrect". Like many phrases and words in the English language the meaning has changed over the years and now has a much broader meaning and most people use it as meaning the avoidance of offence in speaking about or dealing with groups of people outwith the mainstream.

An interesting point. I hadn't even noticed that it had gone. With the test and trace system in total disarray anyway it couldn't have been very accurate. I suppose it would be possible to calculate it on a local basis. I live in Highland region which has a population of just over 300,000 and has had 376 positive test recorded and only one in the past week it must be very low. Of course holiday makers are now flooding north in their campervans and to occupy the holiday homes and lets so it could rise.

Moravian comments on Nov 28, 2019:
Well said George. We don't celebrate "Thanksgiving" here fortunately but the madness of "black Friday" is catching on fast. There is some unconscious humour attached though. An American friend put a photo on facebook showing her husband and sons making meatballs for thanksgiving dinner and I thought it was turkey everyone ate or are the meatballs just an aside ? One of her facebook friends commented " why are the boys balls smaller than Anthony's (their father)" made my day I referred her to a natural history documentary following a troop of chimpanzees where the testicles of the dominant male were much larger than the other males. Hope that cleared it up for her.

Reminds me of a story told by Ivanka Trump a few years ago, This was recorded, to hopefully embarrass her in future although I doubt if it will. She was walking with daddy towards Trump Tower in NY and there was a homeless beggar sitting on the sidewalk. Trump turned to her and said "That man has more money than I have". meaning I presume that he had $millions of debt" She thought this very funny. Yuk !!
What if poverty was not a priority to fix because it is profitable for some? [theguardian.com]
Moravian comments on Jul 28, 2019:
A good example is the housing market in the UK. Prices are kept artificially high because many people make a lot of money from it. "The homes fit for heroes" by the Govt after WW1 did a lot to improve matters but the building industry has not changed much since then. Damp proofing and insulation have improved a bit but houses are still built the same way. Prefabricated houses can be built cheaply and quickly in factories but the building industry is so conservative that this is a step too far. All over the UK prime farmland is being covered in "little boxes" when each town and city has lots of "brownfield" sites which could be used instead. Not so much money in that for developers,landowners and corrupt planning officials though.
This is pretty standard here in North Texas.

Moravian comments on Apr 29, 2019:
The law of blasphemy is used by totalitarian govts as a control measure. It is a sign of civilisation when a country abolishes this ridiculous law. It is just over 300 years ago that a young man was hanged for blasphemy in Edinburgh and the law was abolished ages ago but although not used in Ireland it was only abolished recently. The answer is avoid living in a theocracy if at all possible and make sure that politics and religion are kept separate at all costs.

Moravian comments on Apr 3, 2019:
.I have plugged his book on here before "The ends of the World" by Peter Brannen. he writes in detail about previous mass extinctions and the reason for them and discusses the likelihood of another. He makes what could be a dry subject fascinating. As far as I remember we are a long way from another mass extinction but it is possible in the future.
Well, I guess...
