    Corona Virus Thread

    Sweden has acted decisively... and told people to get on the back of the bus instead of the front so that there is less interaction with the driver ?. They've literally roped off the front with a bit of string and a few pieces of toilet paper. It's comical.

    Bringing back fallen posters

    Apologies for making a thread that is not about Conor, Khabib, dollies or brawls, but the sad departure of blessed Vert made me muse about the plethora of posters that have departed these hallowed shores over the past 12-18 months. Of course plebs come and go, but we have lost several 20k+ posters. If you could bring one of the following back, who would it be and why? I have included a short resume to help remind you of them. Please vote using the poll....lol, this took much longer than planned.... UFCCageRattler. Trademarks: Jake Shields fan. World-weary cynicism. Held doggedly to fights from ancient history defining a fighter (Lawler losing to Shields, Woodley losing to Marquadt etc.). Subtle wit that was lost on many but appreciated by a handful of fans who labelled him as Hilarious. A semi-professional MTB-er with very good contributions to the fitness thread Allies: Surprisingly, 12er due to political and humour considerations Enemies: All Republicans and people who thought Jake Shields was a can. Reason to bring him back: CB and all the Europeans need another lefty friend. Was also very funny, and one of the more subtle trolls Reasons not to bring him back: He retired. Let's leave him in peace Banham Trademarks: Most of the best fora lingo. Double-diggling people in blueberry flavoured buttermilk was a conglomeration of all his best work. Repped Ferguson with a passion unmatched, and could be merciless at times. Frequent contributor to the gaming thread. Inventor of brutal losing usernames, some of which never saw the light of day due to cancelled fights. Allies: Roids, Patster (at times), Carnages Enemies: Only Finish_Him Reason to bring him back: Fora lingo has grown stale. Nobody is repping El Cucuy other than occasional half-hearted attempts from Jason_H Reasons not to bring him back: Another self-imposed retiree, with nothing left to prove. Cole Trademarks: Known as a Conor fan hated by other Conor fans, but actually bandwagoning was really his thing. Would be DC's number one fan right now, plus a huge fan of Khabib and a fan of Cejudo since day 1. Would make 12 threads within 1 hour all on the same topic. As clear a case of OCD as i've seen. Famously groomed his eyebrows and took his shirt off to fight an old man at traffic lights. Allies: Few. FFS seemed to like the chaos. Enemies: People who hated Conor, and people who loved Conor Reason to bring him back: Not enough Conor threads.... Reasons not to bring him back: Few posters were more annoying. Finish_Him Trademarks: UFC Montages that nobody watched. Missing virtually every joke that was made. Becoming very aggressive for no apparent reason, and getting thrown out of his own game several times. Had a very unhealthy obsession with Cash Allies: Omoplatypus Enemies: Anyone who had a different opinion to him on anything. Reason to bring him back: I can't think of any Reasons not to bring him back: Having every thread derailed with the same repetitive and pointless 'bad-****' arguments is not something we miss. Brian (Doug/BigMuff/MachidaPower) Trademarks: Blathering Allies: None Enemies: Various. 12er in the early days (for taking "selfies"), Carnages (who trolled him into snitching to the FBI) and Polo who made him rage quit over an AV bet. His main ire is now focused on Sober via twitter to 0 followers Reason to bring him back: Bong updates Reasons not to bring him back: So so many.... Megasoups Trademarks: Willingness to throw hands with strangers. Lots of fitness posts. Weird running battle with Mozzez Allies: Me, Stomp, CB Enemies: Mozzez, Cash, America, Carnages and anyone else black Reason to bring him back: His diaries. Plus Mozzez is all mellow these days. Reasons not to bring him back: I think he's better off without the fora. He's not made for the cut and thrust. Vert Trademarks: Hmm. Top 20 university. One of the leading authorities on crypto-currency and one of the more annoying Conor fans Allies: Soccer fans. He was a good laugh during the World Cuo Enemies: Quite a few. Roids being the ultimate one who caused his demise Reason to bring him back: He was quite a varied, active poster. Reasons not to bring him back: He's only just left. Plus returning would be welching.

    Politics thread

    They pay more tax than most European countries, yet have more guns per head than most European countries. Your link is therefore tenuous at best; you may as well link gun ownership to obesity as America scores extremely highly in both. Actually, i find it quite odd that Swedes happily pay such high tax because generally speaking, they're more into freedom and individualism than most other European countries. I'm pretty sure brainwashing plays a fairly large part in it all.

    Corona Virus Thread

    The two main theories are that they've been really lax at diagnosing cases (so it's actually 3000 dead out of >> 35,000) or that it's because they have an aged population who are way less isolated than most old people (Italy look after their mamas and papas). Probably a combination of both tbh.

    Sweden is full of guns mate. They're all hunters over here.

    Looks like US is still very much on the exponential part of the curve, along with France, Spain, UK and Germany. Italy is arguably past the worst of it so far although they've been annihilated compared to everywhere else. USA will be top 5 total cases by the end of the week, but is still barely top 50 for cases per head of population. My dark horse for a top 10 entry is Portugal though. RIP in pieces @MauroPedrosa

    I know the answer to this one. If Hilary was in charge it would be MUCH worse, and you've got TDS.

    You need to update your top 10 viruses list. I can see Corona breaking into the top 3; i think it was only number 5 in the original.

    speaking of stealing your money, heard yesterday I'll get a rather nice bonus of 300 KSEK.... of which 180 KSEK goes to the communist Swedish government. 60% is rather eye-watering!! Thankfully i get a small bonus in the UK as well which 'only ' gets taxed at 40%

    ATTENTION: Dana White

    Why do all the fighters on the left begin with the letter 'C'? That's a curious theme.

    Watched i am legend last night. Still one of the best zombie movies around. Even if they're not actually zombies.

    Politics thread

    This is what a shambles US politics is in mate. The argument against a terrible president is that the alternatives are worserer. You're having to choose the lesser of two evils because it's all about who's got some money. Frankly you need a revolution. Or to invite the Brits back to bring a bit of proper democratic process to the table.

    There are also things that were much worse in China. Super crowded cities and most families have their aged relatives living with them. Protecting the old and vulnerable was much more complicated. They are naturally more compliant though; that definitely helped.

    Corona Virus Thread

    Appears to be a fairly strong suggestion that the mortality rates are inflated due to poor detection rates early on. Whilst it's easy to believe the number of deaths in China, it's hard to believe the total number of infections was anywhere near accurate. Sweden has been very proactive in testing (because of the low number of cases they tested everyone who had come into contact with known carriers), and has around a 0.6% mortality rate at the moment. The Swedes naturally practice social distancing anyway, so the decision is still basically do very little it seems.
