  1. I think there is an element of satire in these videos as watching videos of Nick with a watch maker he doesn't carry on like he does in these videos. Having said that it doesn't bother me at all, they're just having banter and trying to be entertaining. If you hate these videos and it's because of the accent, clothes etc and not the actual content of what is being said it could possibly be to do with your own preconceived notions and prejudices more than anything else. I find them pretty entertaining and although I'm not into luxury goods personally I do like to see a nice watch, vintage s
  2. Cigars can only be sold in tobacconists which are state regulated, prices are fixed by the government and those shops pretty much only sell tobacco, I believe shipping outside iif spain is also illegal. I (used to) travel to a few areas regularly and there are tobacconists like this on every street corner ranging from having fully stocked walk ins to small fridges but cigars are available everywhere you turn. Not sure if the customers are mainly tourists or locals but cigars are everywhere.
  3. This doesn't mean vaccinated people still spread the virus, “Breakthrough” cases of COVID-19 among vaccinated people are expected. It doesn't mean that the vaccines currently in use are not highly effective. They are, just not 100 percent effective. So, yes, you can still get sick even if you’re vaccinated, but it’s exceedingly rare. According to the CDC, 87 Million Americans had received the COVID-19 vaccine as of April 20, 2021. Among vaccinated people, there were 7,157 breakthrough cases, with fewer than 500 hospitalizations and 88 deaths. The cases are about 1/100th of 1 percent of t
  4. I always come back to this photo by Adrian Bliss, taken in the exclusion zone at chernobyl.
  5. Maybe they'll re release them in tins of 5 for the price of a churchill someday
  6. I have a box of '12 Punch DC's that were near perfect in 2015, still remember how amazing each one was. They are nice now but nowhere near as good, try one, you never know.
  7. I apologise. I never wanted to make it about that or take it that far and did tried to bow out. It touched a nerve. I certainly don't come here for this, I come here for our shared interests.
  8. It has been found to be an entirely ineffective treatment, that's what the clinical trials have shown. Randomised Control Trials are the only valid design to evaluate therapeutic efficacy. The strengths of RCTs include the development of a prospective study protocol with strict inclusion and exclusion criteria, a well-defined intervention, and predefined endpoints. All of those are usually absent or defined in observational studies, which makes the interpretation of the results difficult.
  9. The small studies which you seem to cherry pick, are not conclusive. It even states that and indicates the main limitations of the evidence are risk of bias and imprecision.
  10. No effect on mortality or virus clearance, i.e. not an effective treatment
  11. "We are clearly dealing with mis-information on a grand scale" True, your posts are prime examples of that.
  12. The comments stated that hydroxychloroquine was found to be an ineffective treatment in the clinical trials which is not patently false. https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2016638 https://www.recoverytrial.net/news/statement-from-the-chief-investigators-of-the-randomised-evaluation-of-covid-19-therapy-recovery-trial-on-hydroxychloroquine-5-june-2020-no-clinical-benefit-from-use-of-hydroxychloroquine-in-hospitalised-patients-with-covid-19 https://www.ox.ac.uk/news/2020-06-05-no-clinical-benefit-use-hydroxychloroquine-hospitalised-patients-covid-19 Why do you dismiss these major lar
  13. Advice is like cooking: you should try it before you feed it to others.
