Why is it that all human endeavour, given enough time, seems to garner the sobriquet 'Heritage Site'. Or, that all human constructed detritus given enough time is a collectable or antique.

We're just apes that got lucky, gazing in awe at our own shit.

I've never donated so much as a penny piece to any charity. They can all get fucked.

You never told us you were Scottish!

I have a mixed ancestry; Scottish, Irish, French & English. I come from a long line of nonentities and aim to continue that noble tradition.

Back from holiday and stuck all the latest figures in my spreadsheet from the last two weeks.

Even ignoring the "on the run" possible cases, and projecting only improving clear-up results (not yet really seen) this will not be cleared up within the next 2 years and will cost at least 10,000 lives.

So we are now running at an average of 38 new fatal cases per day. And 19% increase on the past 7 day period. Over a 28 day period we now have an 88% increase in the death toll. Over a calendar month that's a 96% increase. Projecting this forward we are still on-target for 41 million deaths by the end of 2015 and 100% worldwide infection by August 2016.

Three weeks ago I put together a similar analysis and got that end date to be October 2016.

Scream if you want to go faster...

Won't happen. Even in the unlikely event that it does, If the vast majority of those 41 million are Africans then who will really care?

I have no idea whether Cliff Richard is a boy botherer or not.

Apropos of nothing, the only Cliff song that isn't utter shite.
