They'll be the death of us yet, anyway. Their poor have a truly unfortunate habit of consuming antibiotic pills individually (as in, one at a time, not a full treatment), failing to kill whatever bacteriological infection they were suffering from, and then shitting where they walk, eventually introducing the now-resistant bacterial strain into the food chain. This is a slow but methodical way to create antibiotic immunity in harmful bacteria, and has been instrumental in wiping out the usefulness of many of the most effective antibiotics.

We're pretty much the only country in the world that effectively limits anti-biotic prescriptions. And even then, we undo a lot of that hard work by putting anti-biotics in animal feed and so on.

Like I said a while ago, never mind covid, it's going to be antibiotic resistance that will get us to the end. Look at the graph of global population over the 20th century, and you'll notice we'd hit the peak up until antibiotics were made widely available.

Got anything to back that up? I get that we regulate the stronger stuff pretty effectively but there's still big problems with over-prescribing penicillin.

Note an actual experience of mine a few years back:
GP: "Yes that cyst on your neck is infected, I'll give you some antibiotics."
Me: "Can you cut it out please so it doesn't keep getting infected again in future?"
GP: "No, it's just cosmetic."

Also the many many cases of tonsillitis which could be caused by a viral infection such as glandular fever, but the doctors will rather just prescribe antibiotics first instead of screening.

I don't have any figures, but: Something like 99% of organisms are resistant to penicillin, amoxicillin and derivatives already, so it really don't matter. You can prescribe that while having a swab sent off to the lab to rule out other sources of infection.

When a doctor sends a swab from an infected would or tonsilitis or whatever for testing, it's usually not really to see if/how it's infected. They usually already know that because the vast majority of infections your average person gets are mundade and entirely commonplace. What they're really sending it off for is to see which antibiotics the infection is sensitive and resistant to.

There's then first, second and third line antibiotics which the consultant microbiologist selectively authorises. When the doctor gets the report back from the lab it only includes the first line, the others are censored so some silly bugger doesn't go giving out gentamicin for a chest infection without specific authorisation.

I haven't really been keeping track of his recent works outside of Fighting in the Age of Loneliness though, he collaborates a lot more now.

This guy gets it. Hell, they only made the decision to set the next Trek on a space station when they heard B5 was actually going to air.

B5 was always the better of the two shows. DS9 was a fucking snooze-fest for the first two seasons. You'd watch B5 and they were setting up not one but TWO major wars, and then you'd look at DS9 and it was yet another "Constable, it's all kicking off on the Promenade!"

We were having a fun conversation at work today about what if Corrie went on a mad one, and had a year long plot arc about the bombs dropping and Ken Barlow and the gang surviving in a post nuclear Salford. Then they wrap it all up with an arc about David travelling back in time to prevent it all, thus reverting the show to the status quo as if nothing had ever happened.

Nothing about the idea of star trek is sacred now so they are honestly capable of anything. It is well within the realms of possibility by the end of this season Picard ends up on the run from the police after someone plants a dead hooker in the boot of his car to stop him getting somewhere in time to stop the bomb going off, whilst trying to attend both his wife's birthday and watch the big game with his boss at the same time with hilarious consequences.

I still like The Mighty Boosh but, in an act of typically inadvertent pretention, I think the best series is the radio one.

I had a powerful dislike of the Mighty Boosh when I was younger (and I'm sure I must have typed a bunch of angry shite here about it at least once back around the dawn of time) but in retrospect it was just a bunch of silly student bollocks, hardly worth getting worked up over. I think part of it was that Noel Fielding somehow looked a bit too old to be fannying around with shows (and hair) like that, he's probably not a bad bloke in reality but if it turned out he was a nonce all along I wouldn't be too shocked.

I suspect I'd still genuinely despise Little Britain. No interest in checking though.

22958 How'd You Like "The Irishman" (2019)?
I really enjoyed this film and it's growing on me more and more since I saw it last week. I'm perfectly happy to hear people slate things I enjoy, but all the negative things I see people saying about it are just wrong opinions. I was totally focused on it throughout and the final half an hour might have been my favourite part of the whole film. Youngest De Niro looks bad, but other than that the youngification didn't bother me because it was a necessity for this kind of story (it's not the same as resurrecting Peter Cushing like in that God awful Rogue One film). A story which I don't think is getting enough credit for how well it weaves together all the different eras it takes place it.

That fish conversation's going to baffle people from now until the heat death of the Universe, at least it has me.

There is still fun to be had. And it is hard for me to separate all of my knowledge collected over the years from what someone would be able to pick up fresh, if that makes sense.

I might be being a bit harsh. It probably is a fine film to shovel popcorn into your mouth too. There is nothing wrong with it as such.

It is a detective story, but not a mystery that I think the audience can solve among with the characters. I don't think in 10 years it will be remembered for anything other than its novelty.

As someone who was massively into pokemon as a 10 year old in the late 90s, at the height of gen 1 popularity, I honestly felt like it was a movie aimed squarely at people like me. It barely featured any newer pokemon, and has Deadpool in it.

I mean it makes sense really. A lot of people my age or thereabouts probably have kids by now, and it's the oldest trick in the book to make a kids film that the parents secretly like just as much because of nostalgia.

It wasn't his best but it was still pretty solid. Decent anecdotal commentary on the waxing and waning of Hollywood celebrity culture, cancel culture, and other cancers of the modern world.

To claim Dave Chappelle is "anti-woke" is laudable. The article - and many others like it - don't even touch on his lampooning of the hate crime hoax that was the Jussie Smollett case. Writers like Taylor Hosking live in blissful ignorance and hold fast to their beliefs of a false dichotomy between comedy and commentary where there may be no moderate middle ground.
