The second one at 60C. But then he boils it.
Other one then boils it twice. After the 90C wash cycle.
Then they flambe the masks.

Victoria has just had its thirteenth straight day of zero new cases or deaths.

Now, I'm not superstitious, but...

An interesting article about how the virus, and its mortality rates have changed through time.

That's a distinct possibility, especially if we have not learnt from you people in Melbourne that it is not a good idea to fuck infected persons we are supposed to keep in isolation. The speed of the spread is amazing; from one to 17 new infections in under 24 hours.

On the positive side, I note that Victoria remains free from new infections for 15 days now.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

South Australia government brazenly changes tack from under reporting numbers for electoral reasons to over reporting for authoritarian reasons.

Wrong. It's the handiwork of Scotty from Marketing.

Thanks for restarting my sceptic faculty. I no longer believe that Victoria remained free from new infections for 15 days for two reasons:

1.) No double-blind studies have been provided in support of the assertion.

2.) The Victorian government falsified the number of days without new infections because it wants to control the population. In reality all so-called excess deaths were due to causes other than the Rona. Most of them were due to old age. The remainder due to jaywalking and becoming a victim of the dreaded drop bear. In reality Victoria has been entirely free from the virus.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country.
