๐Ÿงต A New Year's Eve tale: June 1990 "Hello, could you tell me when the next train to Birmingham is?" "One moment, ah yes, it's at 1:40." "Brilliant!" "People aren't usually this excited about Birmingham." "I've got a date with Sam, I can't believe it!" "Have fun young man." 1/12

If you do your own research you'll find that most people who do their own research are morons.

Well this sounds promisingโ€ฆ..though, Iโ€™m not sure if universal is the right way of describing it. Sounds like it would work against multiple but known variants

What's something you regularly look up online and fantasize about buying if you were rich? The catch: You can't say "houses." (too easy/common) Me? Fancy, antique daggers and rare, first-edition books.

7) based on the rate of Danish #Omicron vs Delta - @JPWeiland (and many others) have modeled Omicron to be anywhere from 4x to 6x more transmission advantage over Delta. Delta meanwhile has 2x R advantage over old Wuhan. Wuhan had an R0 of 3-4. Omicron is worrisome.

That thread I made yesterday, it's blown up by the standards of my account. But I want to explain why I felt it had to be said. I am an overtrained, high end chef, so I get asked if Grandma's recipe is really traditional or just some nonsense.

Things that should be common knowledge but somehow shock people about veterinarians: my tiny soap box (1/4)
The veterinary community has recently lost three more vets to suicide. The reasons for this are myriad, but include a high debt/low income ratio, overwork, emotional trauma, and (dog help us!) online bullying. #NOMV #notonemorevet
