    The Black Plague killed around 50 million people, those infected having a 45-50% chance of dying.
    So unless I'm missing something this is not nearly as bad.

    It works just fine given the context, I've seen far worse Tweets.

    Whilst I agree intellectually it doesn't appear to be worse than the black plague, we can only see this with the benefit of hindsight.

    What's really driving my anxiety is the unknown and future both short and long term.

    I like Trump, because he validates all my beliefs about and experiences with that country and its citizens.

    I'm sure there are a few good ones hiding somewhere (I've seen a couple on these forums), but I think it's indicative of the increasing cultural divide that the Brits have raised £10m for the NHS courtesy of a 100-year old man walking up and down his garden, whereas over there they are indulging in a domestic call to arms and civil uprisings.

    Interesting to see the timeline of deflection collected together.

    Not sure this reflects particularly well on you, tbh.

    Trump is an absolutely abhorrent and stupid man, but tarring the entire country with the same brush is equally stupid.

    Science degree? You mean a doctorate in quantum chemistry and was working as a research scientist until '89.

    Impressive lady.
