Where did we get the term "herd immunity" - as applied to human epidemiology?

I thought animals came in herds and human beings in crowds?

I think I'm highly modern because I now use a laptop, with an external mouse - instead of a desktop computer!! :rofl:

Don't wipe your bum... Wash it!!

And avoid wasting toilet paper...

The bum-washer...

A simple bit of plumbing can reduce the necessity for panic buying every time you think there may be a shortage of bog roll!?!!

And, I would venture, it's a lot more hygienic.

To all my very dear American friends:

 

"Maths" is short for "mathematics,"

whereas...

"math" is short for "mathematic." (sic.)

 

So, could we please put the "s" in the abbreviation for "mathematics?"

 

It's MATHS - not "math" - OK?!!  :aggressive:

 

 

Thank you!! :rolleyes: :) :good:

And for all of my dear Filipino and Filipina artist and photographer friends...

 

We don't usually hold an "exhibit..."

We hold an "exhibition," OK?

An exhibit is usually just one of many individual items, which may or may not be exhibited in an exhibition of several, or indeed, many other items. 

 

Kasi...!!! :aggressive: :80:  :search:  :aggressive:  :aggressive:

I've just started reading a book called "Men Explain Things to Me" by Rebecca Solnit.

The dedication reads:

(my emphasis)

Quote

For the grandmothers, the levelers, the dreamers, the men who get it, the young women who keep going, the older ones who opened the way, the conversations that don’t end, and a world that will let Ella Nachimovitz (born January 2014) bloom to her fullest

 

Well... Having a mother, a sister, two nieces and three wonderful daughters, I would say that you can count me in there! :)

This is a very interesting book. Deadly serious in places but laced throughout with Rebecca's ferocious humor!! (I'll try to find a better word than "ferocious" to describe her sense of humor - but that will have to do for now...)

One thought that struck me as soon as I started to get into the book is that men explain things to me too. I think it must me a "man thing"?

So don't worry, Rebecca. It's not just women that men try to explain things to.

They do it to each other.

All the flippin time!!  :aggressive: :rofl:

 

I have lost count, for instance, of all the men who have been explaining to me recently about the new coronavirus. As if I'd never even heard of it?!! Okay, okay... So I have been locked-down on a ship for the best part of five months now. But we do have internet on here. And I can actually read the news. :shok:
