Lots of cases. Everything is currently open. Another lockdown of sorts is probably coming. But they're no longer doing really proper lockdowns as the hand to mouth small cash businesses can't handle it.

Numbers aren't as high as they were late last year, but I think it's more in the general community than previously and not as confined to factories and detention centres.

On the positive, the death rate is still very low relatively.
You have the South African variant there, don't you? The Thais are worried that it will cross the border.

I don't know. The press here hasn't been talking strains.

Everything has been open with some places absolutely packed, yet it's been a pretty gradual build up in case numbers. So it wouldn't need to be a really contagious strain to get where we are at.

I hope your lamb's name is not Zelda!
No.. when I arrived at the farm.. I specifically had a conversation with the fu**en Niiiidddd maaaaan about all that sh*t and that re.. I go.. no Zelda Aphro or Ari.. maaaaan. And he was like cool maaaaan.. he took me to them.. and they were all snug like a bug in the rug watching tv in the living room by the fireplace.

A true gentleman.

Just read up on it - we've got the full gamut. South African and English. They've just had the first case in quarantine of the Indian strain - not in the community yet. I haven't kept up with it as they've been calling it B.1.25.... rather than pinning the strain to a country

How many did you feed with this beast? And how did you serve it up?
Carving it up takes skill and time which is why I outsource the gig to my father-in-law.

It fed 20 hungry Greeks (give or take) with lots leftover. :)

Served w' Greek salad (all the raw ingredients coming from our farm), spanakopita with home made pastry, cheeses etc... together with a couple of side-dishes.

Very impressive. A shame you will all go to hell because you split away from the Papacy about a thousand years ago, but a nice lunch nonetheless.

When you're this good.. you can afford to pull out the sunblest and high 5 the crowd at snails pace towards the end of the comp.. sign some signatures.. piss fart around.. take the Mickey.. and still get over the finishing line in 1st place with still no one in sight..

Enjoy..

You just need a decent camera or some means to combat the shakes.

Points deducted for the alarming alcohol:water ratio. Archimedes devised the rule of 4:1 wine:water.

Us Macedonians were the only Greek city state never to mix water with wine and we were a bunch of goat herders not overly philosophical and sh*t like that.. you can see that illiterate goat herder in me at times.. not that often though.. but it's there.. that's why they used to call us barbarians and that re sort of a thing.. every other Greek city state used to mix there water with wine.. can you believe that.. pffffffff.

But from goat herders.. we came good.. put every other Greek city state's house in order.. formed the Hellenic Republic.. and conquered the world.

The pure wine and partying like illiterate goat herders.. was a constant throughout..

I like that...... I like that.

The Collingwood FC could learn from us Macedonians.. how to balance out being colorful.. ruthless.. barbaric.. and smart.. all that sort of sh*t to achieve optimum success.

At the moment Collingwood is more like the EU, but kind of like a EU where instead of food done by the French, engineering by the Germans, Styling by the Italians and customer service by the Swiss, we have the Germans doing the food, the Italians doing the engineering, style by the Swiss, and the French responsible for customer service.

I had nothing to apologise for.
So, didn’t.
Being exposed as a fraud must hurt.
But just like Buckley, your disciples don’t care about the lies and deceit.
So, play on.
Lighten up! It was obvious that the photo was lifted from online. I don't think the Gimp ever intended that people accept the photo as a real depiction of a feast he had prepared. His good humoured and respectful response to your exposure of the photo's origin seems to have been taken seriously by you. Surely you have greater insight into the intentions of others than to think the Gimp is passing this food spread off as his own creation. He is doing nothing other than having a bit of fun.

Myself, I didn't even think for a moment that the Gimp's image wasn't genuine.

Saw a big table of food, couldn't help but give it a like.
