COVID-19: who’s going full doomsday prep on this?

in me vL comy
Middle boy returned a positive RAT on Sunday. Extremely mild symptoms, only reason we tested was because he had a slight fever, otherwise wouldn't have thought to test. No one else in the house has it. Neither of the younger boys have had it (as far as we know), i.e. they didn't show any symptoms or test positive when all the rest of us had it back in 2021.
Been going round a few families around here, seem like it is shifting/has shifted to being a regular virus that is going to do the rounds every winter, it will knock off vulnerable people just like the flus and colds do but for the rest it will be an inconvenience.

We had to test the youngest last week when he came with some symptoms, turns out about 70% of the RATs we have are now past their use-by date... :mad:

I really enjoyed the 2021 lockdown. I had enough work, enough pay, lots of free time to ride, and a shortage of arseholes.
I thought you weren't impressed about the long road ride on the MTB to your fine Newcastleian park of jumps.
1st world problems.

Bought some a while ago from Colesworths, they had new stickers extending use by date by 6? 9? Months? (TGA approved apparently)

TLDR "don't use expired ones... But a shop can relabel them if supplier says ok to extend expiry date".....

Maybe if we can get the UN/WHO to announce mandatory freedoms, the conspiracy crowd will put themselves into a self-imposed lockdown in an act of defiance?
Tell the cookers they can go anywhere** they want, as long as they agree to wear the special ankle bracelet tracker, have the antenna installed on their skull, so the gubbinment can read their thoughts, and get vaxxed :D :D o_O

** except those SeCrEt BlAcK oPs & GuBbInMeNt Buildings, ( and anywhere with a 'no cookers allowed' sign, even if it's written in pencil)
