I here what you're sayin but really let's try and live without dunny paper for a while and the work out what's more of  a inconvenience
There Is a very practical alternative to dunny paper, you just have to think outside the box.

I haven't bought dunny paper since last year sometime.
Go the Bum Gun.

I had to see the light and move OS to work out that until a country accepts the Bum Gun as normal, you are not civilised. Yes, paper is still required for a final inspection and touch dry.
Well In the shower setting while cleaning yourself, It all ends up going down the same pipe.

Umm, no, not always.

Newer communities the $hit pipe is separate from the shower pipe for water recycling purposes. My house in Dubai is separate, my house in Gladstone was separate, the shed I built on our acreage is separate and until recently our investment house on Macleay Island had separate grey and brown water systems, its now merged for cost repair reasons.

Unless you have time for a shower at the end of #2, a hose (fit for purpose small head, narrow stream design) does the same if not better job and you don't risk getting a piece of tur_d between your toes in the shower.

True out on the farm the shower water goes down the paddock and Into the trees.

But where I live the shower (grey water) and the dunny waste (black water) leave the house In the same pipe.

Yes you time a smeg (In the dunny) than shower at the same bathroom session, don't need any special shower head, just a stock standard shower head on a hose (their pretty standard now In bathrooms)
All In It's probably the most cleanest and most hygienic method (or do people have a shower without daring to properly clean themselves)  

If you somehow get a piece of turd between your toes, well you wash It away and clean your toes and the shower afterwards.

Time to take this thread out of the sewer.

According to some of the media in the USA, we are the world's newest hermit nation, finding a silver lining in our ISO.

I think we now need to develop some long range nukes like King John UN to properly fit the part.

Still reckon Trump will win. Humble pie on standby.

Have watched that doomsday preppers TV show a few times.
People plan for a particular scenario they deem applicable. Haven’t seen one where by the worst case is a president won’t leave office when voted out.
As you say, things could very well go tits up in the US.

Not a Trump fan, but I think the likes of CNN etc created the "he won't leave office willingly" story to scare people and highlight how bad he is.

Yes the US is I think a growing powder keg just waiting for a full scale civil unrest like they have not seen before.

I've also watched "The Preppers" (I think), its the one where they get an expert in to review their "prepping" then have a simulated attack and in all cases I watched the Preppers were easily walked over by a small attacking group. One couple who had the fitness of a 100 kg Woman and 150 kg man you'd expect were trying to defend their flat, completely open acreage, almost no trees to be seen. Almost nothing to hide behind and a fibro house to hide in. WTF?

Others the guy went through there nearly 1t of food stash (in cans) and told them if you eat most of this food you will most likely get sick, its all very much out of date. He told them its very difficult to store more than a month or two's worth of food and keep it safe as you need to rotate it with your normal consumption.    

All up the seem to say most Prepper's think they are good for years and will defend themselves with no issues, but in reality the "Experts" say most Prepper's have at most ~2mths of food and resources after which they will need to go mobile to look for food which is where the danger is. Most don't have the fitness (obese) to hunt properly on foot. Few store anywhere near enough water and American's in general are not used to catching rainwater into a tank, rather they pump from streams and bore's,  both of which usually need power and a half decent militia group will go around the Red-neck areas and clean up most of the Prepper's as they deem fit picking them off one by one as they need supplies.

Agreed. An example of this in point is heavily armed gunmen storming the legislature public gallery of one of the states leading to terrified politicians repelling a lockdown law for fear of their lives back in May.

Regarding the latest figures, the source that I commonly refer to is covidlive.com.au

It is pleasing to see that the drop in active cases in Victoria has accelerated in the past few days. It is noteworthy that Victoria and NSW now have roughly the same amount of active cases overall, but obviously there is a difference in the type of cases, with most of the active cases in NSW being in hotel quarantine.

The stat that I eagerly await every day is the number of Local Government Areas (LGA's) that have active cases. In Victoria, that is now down to 18, with 10 of them having only one case. The less LGA's with active cases, the easier it would be to manage them.

The masks I see been used by the public, would be only any good for a dust storm.

More than half of people have their nose showing, a quarter have nothing at all over their face.

I read up on a local community forum about one local who Is furious about the lack of mask use (and said they contacted the police) but forum comments had to be turned off because of the amount of abuse this complainer copped from other readers (calling them a snich)

The whole pandemic Is just causing division between the public (maybe that's the whole evil plan)

I don't know whether masks are scientifically of any use or not but 'common sense/rule of thumb' tells me that any level of hinderance to the direct ingestion of at least some the virus must be of potential advantage.

In my experience your figures are very charitable. In two hours on the local bike path this morning in sunny Melbourne there would have been:
  • No more than 10% wearing masks properly
  • 60 odd % either had their noses out or their mask around the neck.
  • The remainder had no mask at all.
In Victoria at the beginning of COVID - 'no need for masks' The fact that they didn't have any was purely coincidental, of course.
Mid way -'optional' - take your pick.
Bit later - 'compulsory' - but any old sweaty will do.
Currently - 'compulsory' - properly fitting mask.

I wear a mask as a 'security blanket' (like Linus ??). Smile

Some country's make us look like fools

https://edition.cnn.com/2020/11/02/europe/slovakia-mass-coronavirus-test-intl/index.html


The European country decided to embark on the gargantuan quest to test everyone over the age of 10 after Covid-19 cases started spiking last month. Dubbed operation "Joint responsibility," the program was the first attempt at large-scale blanket testing in Europe.

Just over 1% of those taking part tested positive, about 38,359 people in total, according to the official website of the program.

The program was first piloted on October 23 in Orava and Bardejov, two regions with the highest number of Covid-19 cases in the country. Nearly 141,000 people, 91% of those who were eligible, got tested in the two regions over the three days of the pilot.

In the rest of the country, the testing took place simultaneously on Saturday and Sunday. The government encouraged everyone older than 10 to take part in the voluntary program. People older than 65 years who spend most of their time at home, people with disabilities, cancer patients, immunocompromised people and other vulnerable groups were exempt.


Mike Tildesley, an infectious disease modeling expert at the University Warwick and a UK government scientific adviser, said that effective mass testing could be used in the long term as an alternative to lockdown to control the spread of disease.

"However, it is important to realize that just because someone tests negative it does not mean that they will necessarily be free from infection a few days later," he said. "So any mass testing strategy needs to be carried out at regular intervals (every few days) in order to be an effective strategy and to allow some lockdown measures to be relaxed."

The government said it was considering running a second round of the mass testing later this month, but no decision has been made yet.
The Slovak program used rapid antigen tests which provide results in minutes. Unlike the molecular diagnostic (PCR) tests, antigen tests don't have to be processed in a lab, so they are faster and cheaper. But they can also be less reliable. While the PCR tests look for the virus' genetic material, the antigen test looks for pieces of protein from the virus.

The Slovak military has been in charge of the testing campaign which required the deployment of 40,463 staff, including 14,500 health workers and 6,319 soldiers, to nearly 5,000 testing locations across the country.

The testing was voluntary, but those who decided to skip it will have to continue comply with stricter coronavirus restrictions and will not be allowed to leave their homes unless they are carrying out one of a few narrowly-defined exempt activities until Sunday.
The number of older people getting coronavirus in Europe is rising again.

Those who tested negative no longer have to comply with the strictest restrictions as long as they can prove their negative status with an official certificate. People who tested positive now have to quarantine -- either at home, or in one of dozens of designated hotels across the country.

Slovakia's Prime Minister Igor Matovic on Sunday praised those who were involved in the program. "Village and city mayors, civil servants, village or city deputies, soldiers, state, city and local police, firefighters and paramedics, health care workers, volunteers, and all of you, people of good will, who did your part this weekend and decided to fight for the health of our most vulnerable," Matovic said in a Facebook post.

Matovic said that masks would continue to be mandatory in all public areas in Slovakia. Other measures, such as a ban on mass gatherings, will remain in place even after mass testing is completed.

Slovakia will also continue to be in an official state of emergency, which has been in place since October 1. The country has reported 61,829 cases and 219 deaths so far.

Yet again! The plural of country is countries. Country's is singular possessive.

P.S. Do you mean "us" in Australia which excludes you, or "us" in Dubai meaning you and your mob there?
