I've been trying the "safe word" but it just ain't happening.

I think the rules are borked.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

Reminds me of the movie "Eurotrip".

I was going to link the YouTube video where the guy tried to use it but it showed "tushy" (man tushy) so opt'ed just to link the Urban Dictionary entry.

The spread of Covid-19 is based on two factors: 1. How dense the population is and 2. How dense the population is.

I see what you did there.

I was approached by Imperial to be part of a COVID testing research study. Of course I agreed and I received a home testing kit that I'll have picked up next Saturday.

This got me thinking on what result I'd truly like to hear back from it. On the one hand I'd like to know if I have it and I am just asymptomatic as that'd make me unsusceptible to the disease, but that'd put me in quarantine for 2 weeks which would screw me up proper with work (and my wife). On the other hand if I test negative then I don't know if I've had it and how tolerant I'd be to the disease if I were to catch it. That would be a bit of a pointless result.

I'm hoping that just being a part of the program might make me a candidate for an antibody research study if they run one - which actually gives me the exact same dilemmas now I think of it?

Reinfection has become a concern, you may be asymptomatic the first time, but apparently the secondary infections are worse.

I really hope your test comes back covid negative.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

You're right, that's the only sensible result to wish for.

Thanks for the sentiment too, 8ully.
