  1. Simone Biles withdraws from the women's team gymnastics on the day of the competition. Hope she's ok. Sounds like it may have all just been getting a bit much for her, with the GOAT expectations and all. Always hard to be on that level, and probably harder in a pandemic year when you're more isolated and harder to stay grounded.
  2. One thing Australia can offer is insight of how quickly the virus spreads from a single case. There's so little COVID out there that we trace the fuck out of it, and Below is a map of the current Melbourne outbreak. We'd had zero cases for a couple weeks, then had a pair of covid positive removalists come to pack up an apartment in Melbourne. They had the delta strain, and have COVID to 4 people in other apartments in the complex on the same floor. One of those guys went to the footy and gave it to 6 people in the bay of the stadium he was sitting in, 1 of those 6 went to the rugby the day after and it took off from there. We found the removalists cases on day 1 ( 3 days after they'd done the job), 10 new cases on day 2 and announced a lockdown with another 12 cases on day 3. That was all that was known about at the time we locked down, and yet in every case in yellow on the chart below was already positive by that point, just had not been found and contained. Today was the 7th day we've been locked down and announced 26 new cases, but 24 of them had been in quarantine for 100% of their infectious periods, so no risk to have spread it further... Current plan is to reopen in 4 days time provided all detected cases were in quarantine for their entire infectious periods. That's 3 lockdowns this year for Melbourne, which have been 5 days, 14 days and (fingers crossed) 11 respectively.
  3. Pretty devastating to Japan to be in such shit circumstances. They would be a great host of the Olympics in normal times.
  4. They should really call him Michael Sch2macher
  5. Yep Australia is pandemonium at the moment (winter) although I'm out of lockdown and my son has only done 2 weeks of homeschool this year. Sydney are in lockdown now and have taken a less risk averse approach, being reluctant to lock down, so now rather than a 10 day lockdown it looks to be 6+ weeks... The threat of imminent COVID spread might finally get us back around to letting people have the AZ vaccine which our medical association had turned their noses up at... But for now, we continue on our logic circuit...
  6. Denmark have been an amazing surprise this tournament. England are stronger and definitely capable of beating them, but the potential for overconfidence worries me.
  7. England have been good value in every game except Scotland imo.
  8. Honestly I feel I've been reading this thread and the most dominant comment I saw was "look at all this anti English sentiment"... I saw that comment more oftent Than actual posts that were anti English. There is undoubtedly some of the sentiment there and probably more than similar threads for France and Germany but it didn't strike me as everyone rooting for England to fail.
  9. Same here. But after the games in Hungary I watched this the other day and it made me really crave the full stadium atmosphere, especially for the final. This tournament deserves it. https://youtu.be/-r111pTdaBU
  10. Great game by England. That will give huge confidence going into the semis. I'd be tipping them making the final now, but at this point I see the Italians as the tournament favorites. (Albeit they have to get past Spain which is not guaranteed). All four teams in the semis are good value and deserving, and the story of Denmark with the Eriksen disaster driving them on is a great one.
  11. But seriously, I'm just like all of you guys... I'd set aside 10m for each of my kids. 2m for each of my family members. I'd give my 10 best mates the choice between 500k or the car of their dreams. I'd drop 10m on the best beach house I can find within a 2 hr drive of my house, and set that up as where I spend my summer with lots of guest bedrooms and open invites to friends and family. I'd definitely keep my job and probably keep most things the same but would add a 2 week winter escape to the (warmer) northern hemqisphere as a fixture of my year, and rotate through all the places on the wish list.
