Are they not true ?

2 is. But only if they don't match the colour of your tutu and crash helmet.

If you put 'internet myths' into Google there's probably enough reading material to last throughout this 'lockdown'.

A thread in another section has prompted me to suggest a light-hearted thread to shine a small light in these dark times.

What's you favourite Internet Myth ?

Here are three of mine to get you started :

1. You can recharge the new i-phone 4 by putting it in the microwave on full power for one minute.

2. If you drive while wearing flip flops you will invalidate your car insurance

3. Don’t use a pencil to put your cross on a voting slip. MI5 will rub it out and change your vote

( Please can we keep this in good taste )

Copied from the North Wales Daily Post:

How to get your money back

EasyJet says customers whose flights have been cancelled can get either a full refund, a voucher for the value of their original booking, or an alternative flight of the same price.

The airline says affected customers will be contacted to discuss their options.

If people wish to get in touch themselves, they can call 0330 365 5000, but are being warned to expect long delays.

They can also manage their bookings online.

Hi all I have just an email sent to me via nhs staff advise it is quite lengthy so will try to give you the interesting bits the virus cannot survive sunshine and tempretures above 27 deg c ,taking hot drinks at regular intervals also will kill the virus , holding you breath for 10 seconds in the morning without coughing or discomfort is a safe sign you are clear of the infection disinfecting door handles phones appliances and hand washing is all good practice ,I have sent my good friend mete AY the full letter if anyone wants to see it please send your email address and I will try to forward it cheers stay safe all

Some of the contents of this “NHS Advice” letter were quoted to me a few days ago by someone who swore blind it was a copy of a letter given to his “next door neighbour’s auntie’s friend” after a recent visit to Casualty.

Unbelievable !

We don’t actually need a lock-down and tens of thousands of ventilators and hospital beds – we can all solve the problem by drinking cocoa ! We don’t need tens of thousands of testing kits – just hold your breath. The NHS are giving out letters, but not publishing the same advice on their web site.

Clearly someone needs to let the Chief Medical Officer know these amazing findings ‘cos he is forgetting to tell people in his daily Downing Street briefings – how remiss of him !

In these terrible and scary times it is reassuring to see that the Government has a department which is working with the Social Media Platforms to spot and take down false and dangerous advice. It is a shame they didn’t have the same department working during election and referendum campaigns.

My rant could go on much longer………… but I think I've got it out of my system.


Stay Safe everyone

PS : The bit about " disinfecting door handles phones appliances and hand washing is all good practice " resides in the "sound advice" section.

pstevens - do you really believe what you have just posted ? For example

1. "the virus cannot survive sunshine and temperatures above 27 deg c "

2. "taking hot drinks at regular intervals also will kill the virus".

Agreed. Thailand 33c. Vietnam 33c. The virus is doing quite well in those temperatures.

First series was good. The second is disapointing. Pretty ridiculous situations to keep the story going...
