  1. Sorry, what? You don't 'believe' in herd immunity? The thing with science is, that it doesn't really care about your beliefs, it relies upon facts and evidence.
  2. Or be allowed to grow your own. Say you're allowed a few plants for personal use. That would probably keep most stoners 'in stock' so to speak. If you think about it, it is crazy that if I grew a few plants for my own personal use, not selling any, not contributing in any form to the underground world of drug dealing and all that entails; I could end up with a criminal record! Surely the main rationale for laws are to protect others from harm. What harm would I be doing to anyone?
  3. You can watch the first 3 episodes on Youtube now. I've thought they've been pretty good so far. A few jokes fall flat, but mostly funny. No one, apart from Trump has really been savaged in my opinion.
  4. https://manx-paragliding-supplies.business.site/?utm_source=gmb&utm_medium=referral He does tandem trips. Not sure if still on Google Maps, but you used to be able to see a couple of paragliders up near the top of Snaefell.
  5. Cheif Cuntstable God, sorry for my shabby spelling. It's Chief
  6. Exactly. We could have been at the cutting edge on this, but the hysterical and uneducated views of too many people (mainly politicians) in relation to cannabis will stall any attempt to have a more forward looking and open policy on this. Nothing will be done here unless the UK does it and then, we'll probably be way behind. It genuinely makes me despair. Today the Cheif Cuntstable was riling against drugs and organised crime being the biggest threat to the Island. I'd hazard a guess that around 50% of the business interests and cash are associated with weed.
  7. Suppose it's better than the Govt money-laundering.... I recall a case recently where an otherwise unemployed drug dealer was given a (not insubstantial) fine, which was paid straightaway. I wonder how he paid that? Or if the Govt undertook a source of funds check!
  8. Aha, twas the wife as I thought... shame she screwed it up for him.
  9. LOL - If anyone saw 'What we do in the Shadows', he definitely has a vibe of Guillermo. I think he did a fair job and the award is warranted. If you ignore the alleged embezellment bit (I can't remember, was that actually proved - I think it was his wife really) RC was a pretty good CM. I think with his Pharmacy background, he probably would have been REALLY good CM in the current situation.
  10. Covid will be coming back. Its dillusional to think it won't. The thing with 'bubbles' is they always burst.
  11. Same for a few international or UK controlled businesses. Kind of understandably they are not making individual country decisions and will just open everything worldwide back up at the same time (or not). Mrs Phantom works for an American owned company. She's going to be WFH until at least the first quarter of 2021.
  12. There are a few internet and similar fulfillment businesses over here, but realistically they are selling low bulk/high cost items. Unfortunately there is an additional sea to cross so the comparative costs are realistically always going to be a bit higher. If you want to sell stuff as an internet business, you'll just have to sell more expensive (or smaller) stuff.
  13. Standard operating procedure for pretty much all banks nowadays. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-54463211 Anyone tried to open a bank account recently? It literally takes months even for a personal account and good luck with opening a business account!
  14. Possibly. When I came into the harbour last night there was a rainbowy slick on the water flowing out. Will be lovely for Peel's new dolphin residents. Did you know 'Peel' is actually Afrikaans for penis? Seriously
  15. Yeah several sunken boats a fuel leaking out into the bay. Awesome
