Honestly one of the very weirdest, most passive aggressive, takes I have ever seen on this site. Image
And then they're tweeting "whoops, must have touched a nerve there". It's honestly just a "mask wearers are sheeple" Tweet. That's all it is.
"Bloody do-gooders don't want things to get back to normal, do they? So sick of those guys."
What is their personal experience with this "small but absolutely real subset" of people, and what problems are they causing with their deliberately wanting to be as good as possible at following life-saving rules?

An open letter about NFTs and comics:
They are unrelated, and NFTs are evil rubbish.
"Strangers die every day already, so there is really no moral argument against me making money as a hired assassin. You want me to starve???"
"Other things other people are already doing all the time are as bad for the environment as NFTs are" really isn't any kind of intelligent argument for NFTs.
It's obvious that, if that bothers you, you should avoid NFTs AND try to reduce the harm done by "other things".

"We've invented a machine that turns a £1 into £10."
"Wow, that's amazing! Is there a catch?"
"Well... a person dies every time we put a pound in."
"BUT, in the future, we're hoping we can somehow make it so that a person doesn't *necessarily* die every time..."
"Im in!"
The machine that kills someone when you put a pound in it to turn it into a tenner guys are doing their best. They're looking for possible ways to reduce the killing in the future. They're good people.
*Please keep putting as many pounds into the machine, as fast as you physically can while they have a good old think about how to solve the death thing moving forward.

I've finally cracked it. The reason people are antimaskers and antilockdowners is because the whole thing is altruistic. Its the sacrifice of the many for the few. You suffer, minorly, moderately, or even majorly, so that the few don't suffer absolutely. And people aren't willing
They don't want to save the few from agonising death. That's someone else's job. They want freedom from inconvenience and displeasure at any cost. They don't care.
They don't care if a "few" people die alone and in pain, if they can just keep on with what they want and like. They want normal again, because they don't care about anything or anyone but themselves.

The idea of fairies at the bottom of the garden might seem twee and childish, but consider the implication. All wild space - no matter how small or close to "civilised" - is magical. Nature waits hungrily at the edges of our concrete world, ready to reclaim at a moment's notice.
Wow, this is unexpectedly popular. Please check out mine and @pauljholden's weekly #FolkloreThursday #folklorecomic s
Not many years ago now, my eldest son (who would have been about 6 or 7 at the time) and I found a tiny, leather satchel/bag. Maybe two or three inches wide, but like a normal leather satchel. A gnome's handbag, is what we called it. 1/2
