You are not wrong. 15 years for dealing fake masks.

When a story is only pushed by Murdoch outlet, you know it's a red flag. If this was credible, scientists and virologists around the world would be all over it. There would be coverage 24/7.

Oh...and she has links to another Chinese fugitive Guo Wengui. And ties to Steve Bannon and Guliani.

I would be interested to know what kind of $$ is involved for putting your creditability on the line and lying out your backside, it would want to be good.

QLD open to ACT next Friday, timed with school holidays. Pretty much the same conditions as SA.

A cynic might point out that opening the border from ACT to Qld also allows a bunch of Canberra based federal politicians to fly-in and help bail out Palachook in the upcoming state election.

But don't ya know its all about health and safety

Sure if Albo and Scomo want to stay here for two weeks then they can fly up

I'd say it is more about tourist $$$. They probably would have made a killing in winter. It's getting warmer here now so I'd say plenty will start going down the coast again.

Don't think any Canberra pollies are going to help anyone in QLD anyway and given we have an election here, it would not be wise to be flying up there

Nah bullets are so old school and messy, they invested in these, organ harvesting vans, making a killing.

Chuckle time.


German soccer team thrashed 37-0 after socially distancing from opponent
https://www.smh.com.au/sport/soccer/...18-p55wss.html


German amateur side SG Ripdorf/Molzen II sacrificed a tight defence for social distancing as they fielded only seven players as a coronavirus precaution in a 37-0 loss to local rivals SV Holdenstedt II.

The preparations for Sunday's match in Lower Saxony's 3. Kreisklasse – the 11th tier of German football – were complicated when it emerged that Holdenstedt players had been in contact with an opponent infected with COVID-19 in a previous match.

Ripdorf did not feel the conditions were safe and only fielded seven players.

While all members of the Holdenstedt squad later tested negative for the virus, Ripdorf, from Uelzen in Lower Saxony, did not feel the conditions were safe and were able to field only seven players - the minimum number required for a match.

"We are thankful those seven players volunteered, otherwise the club would have faced a €200 ($325) fine for abandoning the match," Ripdorf co-chair Patrick Ristow told ESPN. "That's a lot of money for us, especially amid the pandemic."

Holdenstedt showed no mercy and scored a goal nearly every two minutes, while their opponents watched on from a safe distance.

"When the game kicked off, one of our players passed the ball to the opponent and our team walked to the sidelines," Ristow said.

"The Holdenstedt players did not understand. But we did not want to risk anything. For the rest of the match, our players returned to the field but they only stood on the pitch."

The match result has since created a stir on social media but Ristow said Ripdorf only focused on what was best for the wellbeing of all the players on the pitch.

"There is no perfect solution for it. And we went down this route," he added. "We wished Holdenstedt no harm."

Those vans may be used for executions but they don't look like they could be used for organ harvesting. That would more likely be done in the hospital where the recipient was waiting.
A few years ago I was with a friend when the doctors turned off her sons life support. He was only 21 so was considered an ideal donor. I learned more about the process than I wanted so no, that's not how it's done.

Sounds like they should have gone to the pub instead. Socially distanced of course
