Just how would you propose that the government go about this task of getting everyone fit?

Ban multipacks of crisps, sweets and cakes. You have to buy everything individually. No BOGOF deals or discounting of any sort allowed.
Change the weights. Every bag of crisps max 40 grams. Every chocolate bar or bag of sweets, max 40g.
Soft drinks only to be sold individually. You can only buy cans. Can size reduced from 330ml to 250ml.
Now I have the portions under control each sweet or crisps or soft drink is a treat. 3 treats a day for a man, 2 for a woman, 1 for children under twelve as a guideline. 20g half treats can now be a thing.
No VAT on exercise equipment, training gear or training memberships.
Annual fitness check costing £50. If you are deemed in great shape, you get a massive reduction on your national insurance reflecting your risk to the NHS. Sliding scale. Fatties get hammered for taxes.
Proper cycle lanes everywhere. Smooth, no cars. Then make companies install a shower at work by law for every 15 employees, they have to make sure people can freshen up after commuting to work.
Start a culture war against the big is beautiful brigade. Vilify fat people. Use shame.
Place strong metal bars in the doorway of every fast food shop and bakery, spaced 8 inches apart. If you can't squeeze through the gap, you can't go in to buy anything.
Fast food delivery made illegal. You want to eat shit, get off your fat arse and go and get it. I hope you can get through the 8 inch bars or you better learn to cook.
Cooking lessons mandatory in schools until the age of 18.
TV and streaming services shut down at midnight to make sure people get a proper night's sleep.
Doctors retrained to ensure they only give drugs to people who actually need them. Doctors handing out too many drugs get struck off.

Vote Thork for a better healthier future where personal responsibility is heaped upon the individual.

Apparently, you missed a bit from your article:

"We don't yet exactly know how effective our vaccines will be against omicron but we have good reasons for believing they will provide at least some measure of protection.
"If you're boosted, your response is likely to be stronger so it's more vital than ever that people get their jabs and we get those boosters into arms as fast as possible."


You stated I'm not vaxxed against Omicron. How would you know? And what does your claim that somehow you know vax's don't work for Omicron have anything to do with your government stripping you of your civil liberties?

Do you know something about Omicron that no one else does?
??? No one cares about the facts. Least of all, governments. How will you be TREATED now we have a new variant? Answer: As though you haven't been vaccinated again. Go put on your masks, work from home and live exactly like you did before the 'world saving' vaccines were developed.

Its going to stay a constant threat for as long as people are fat as fuck. When people start making sensible health choices, less will be in danger from coronavirus and restrictions will ease. That will likely never happen because most people are lazy and stupid. But that isn't Tom's fault.
There is indeed a correlation between a higher BMI and more sever illness (https://www.advisory.com/daily-briefing/2021/03/10/obesity-coronavirus) among those who received a COVID diagnosis.  But no correlation has been found (that I am aware of or that you have posted) between BMI and the likelihood of getting infected or BMI and vaccine effectiveness.   
So what? If people are healthy and covid poses no risk, we don't have to have all the drama-filled restrictions that go with that. We've had almost 2 years to get people fitter, eating better and looking after themselves and we have done zero. The message is stay at home on your fat arse and wait for science to save you. It's a pretty shitty message.

lol @ anyone who thought that they were, or ever would be, fully vaxxed



I guess I'm fully vaxxed now. Cool.
Nope. You aren't Omicron vaxxed.

Becaues of people like Tom, this won't go away.  Ever.  So we'll need to keep getting booster shots for the newest strain.
You realise that coronavirus infects wild animals that can re-infect humans again, right? No one ever ever said we could eradicate coronavirus. You made that up in your own head. You are blaming Tom for things you imagine now.
Eh.  Technically the Corona virus has been around for decades.  But I was more referring to it as a constant and large threat moreso than "total eradication".

Do you have some sort of direct line to the researchers around the world trying to determine how transmissible and how severe illness could be from Omicron and the efficacy of current vax's against it? Apparently, you know something no one else on the planet knows yet. Delusions of grandeur?
If being able to read is a 'delusion of grandeur', sure.

My government already told us how it wishes to strip us of our civil liberties using omicron as the excuse. And they don't give a crap if you're vaccinated or not. We all get treated as 'not'.

Using the overall theme wouldn't solve your problem as you currently describe it. Most threads in CN would break that theme, because they're enormous quote pyramids, the letter "B" in an egregiously large font, or ginormous unscaled images of any old shit.

You don't have to use CN. It is, deliberately and intentionally, a barely usable mess for people to dump complete nonsense into. Maybe that's not your cup of tea, and that's fine. If you do not like CN, do not use CN. In doing so, you also "vote" with your posts.
Maybe someone who isn't interested in being unhelpful would like to respond instead?

I don't dislike CN. In fact I like using it because I can say what I like without picking up bans. That is why almost all my posts are on those lower forums these days. Because those are the rules I wish to subscribe to. The moderators here aren't good enough to run the other forums sensibly without resorting to mod powers to win arguments that they've decided to take personally.

The issue is on mobile, CN is practically unreadable because the font is too small. I'm asking if a mobile friendly font can be installed instead. Being as the site already has such a thing for every other board, can you not just apply the same theme? Daniel's joke is maybe 15 years old at this point. It's ok for us to not have the same shitty theme any more.

Absolutely. Once you've developed an appropriate theme, please pull request it to our repo as per usual and we'll have a look
Just use the theme that the rest of the forum uses ???

In CN.

Ok, I know it's the silly forum with snow, but I make most of my posts in there and I can't do that from my phone because it isn't responsive.

The snow is an old joke now. Can we just fix it?

Tonight ... San Marino vs England

I predict:      San Marino 0 - 6 England
You meant by half time, obviously.
Obviously. I'm not even watching the second half.

Luxembourg 0 – 3 Republic of Ireland

Maith sibh, a chairde!
Celebrating a win over Luxembourg shows how new you are to football.

Apparently you can just pick someone else to support.
Why would I do that?
I don't know. Rama says borders don't matter. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This might come as shocking news to you, but England is not the only English-speaking country in the world. The English don't even speak English particularly well, unless you compare them to the Americans.
wut?

And apparently I miscalculated because Ghana is now going to the World Cup instead of South Africa. Let's hope the Netherlands does well on Tuesday, or I won't have a team to support.

They have become synonymous with ineptitude and it is made worse by their blindly devoted fan base adoring them
What are we supposed to do? Support France instead? What a silly comparison.

I know you can’t fathom a world where your allegiances aren’t constrained by arbitrary borders, but it’s already out there.
You speak English. You should support England.

I suppose if you can't beat them on the field, all you can do is complain about their fans.
England have played South Africa 19 times. England have won 18 and drawn 1. Beating South Africa isn't a concern. We just don't want to listen to their awful vuvuzelas.



It ruined that world cup. Every game had that buzzing noise all the way through.

Meanwhile, a far more interesting match is about to unfold in just a couple of hours. South Africa is almost guaranteed to qualify for the World Cup, but if Ghana beats them by 2 goals or more, they get to go instead. Grab your biltong and your Windhoek Lager and settle in for a deciding moment!
South Africa need to go out. They are responsible for the vuvuzela. We don't want their fans at any world cup ever with those things.

The Netherlands just threw away a 2 - 0 lead over Montenegro.

For context the last 2 times England played Montenegro (2019) the score lines were
England 7 - 0 Montenegro
and
Montenegro 1 - 5 England.

Turkey will beat Montenegro. This is because Turkey is a solid team with some world class players and Montenegro is a tiny country that is going to lose.
Have you already forgotten that Montenegro drew with the Netherlands just yesterday?
The Netherlands are shit. Turkey aren't.

If Norway beat the Netherlands ... the Dutch aren't going to the world cup ... again.
I see your understanding of FIFA qualifications is just as terrible as your understanding of politics.

You aren't European and come from a country that knows nothing about football. Its fine, I'll explain.



There are 6 teams in a group. And everyone plays everyone else twice. Once at home, and once away. This means everyone has to play 5 other teams twice for a total of 10 games. As you can see, group G have all played 9 games, meaning they all have one game to play.

The Netherlands have to play Norway.
Turkey have to play Montenegro.

You get 3 pts for a win. 1 pt for a draw and 0 pts for a loss.

Turkey will beat Montenegro. This is because Turkey is a solid team with some world class players and Montenegro is a tiny country that is going to lose.

This will mean Turkey will finish the group with 21 pts.
If Norway beat Netherlands, they too will have 21 pts.
The Netherlands will finish 3rd with 20 pts and will fail to qualify as only the top two teams in each group progress.

I hope that helps and that your appreciation of the beautiful game can continue to develop as you learn more about it.

So you think people from Germany should just support Italy if Germany isn't playing so well, and when France aren't doing to sell, their fans support maybe Spain? How ridiculous. You are what is called a glory hunter. A plastic supporter. You don't just support a team when they are winning. The time when they need your support is when they aren't doing so well. What an awful fan you are.

England isn't a franchise and it doesn't make very much money when compared with clubs.

Even worse than the Leafs then.
I wish you'd learn to quote properly. The national team isn't there to bring in revenue. Its there to bring the nation together during tournaments and make us feel proud of our country. Which is important if you ever want those same people to defend that country from say China or the USA.

Quote
It’s kind of exactly what England is like in international football.
No. Its nothing like England. England are always one of the top teams in the world. There are 211 FIFA ranked teams right now. England are currently ranked 5th in the world. That's nothing like the Maple Leafs.

The future is always bright and full of potential in the deluded minds of Leafs fans as well, then they find new and creative ways to disappoint. Just like England.
There are 211 countries. The world cup is every 4 years. This means you should win the world cup on average, once every 844 years. England have already won it before. Its not our turn again until the year 2810. If we win it any time again before then, we're successful. When was the last time your country won the world cup? Oh, that's right ... never.

Big date for your diaries ...

TUESDAY 16TH NOVEMBER
Netherlands v Norway

If Norway beat the Netherlands ... the Dutch aren't going to the world cup ... again.

They have previously failed to qualify in 1958, 1962, 1966, 1970, 1982, 1986, 2002 & last time out in 2018.
