  • I’m confused, because I thought they’d discovered that a longer gap between the two jabs offered more efficient protection?

              • I do often wonder how things would have been for me if this had happened at different points in my life. I can't imagine this all kicking off while I was at school. Or if this had happened ten years ago I'd probably have ended up moving back to my Mums and then my life would have taken a turn. Or if I'd been in my previous job running a pub I'd probably be flat broke now.

                    I sometimes wonder the same. If this pandemic would have started when I was studying then it would have eliminated both of my jobs at Uni & at a Restaurant and I would have had to go back and live with my parents which would have impacted my life for the worse.

                    I am thankful that this whole mess found me when I have already finished studies long ago and have a stable office job

                        We talked about it earlier in the thread, but I just can’t imagine a global pandemic pre-internet. The amount of reliance on it this last year to work from home, stay in touch with friends and family, and to just keep myself entertained (be that downloading games, ebooks, podcasts, music, buying stuff online to do etc) has been absolutely huge.

                        But my parents have said I wouldn’t have been allowed to go to school if this was happening back then. I couldn’t have done my degree if this was happening then. I’ve had jobs where I couldn’t have worked remotely and when I was first starting out on my own, living hand to mouth (as you do) I probably would have had to defeat and moved home.

                        It’s quite scary thinking about it, as loads of people are going to be in similar situations and worse circumstances right now.

                        • I remember that thread. To be honest, I disliked the attitude of many people during the last year that went like 'We can't do it in person? Let's do it via the internet!'. Well, what about not doing it at all for once and find analog alternatives that work just as good? I'm sure we would've found a way to survive the pandemic without the internet, maybe, just maybe, even better than we do now.

                              Didnt you write in random thoughts that you spend hours upon hours talking to people you have never met via online messenger apps. And you are probably one of the members who is online the most here daily. Are you sure you would manage so easily without internet ?

                              How would you have done your home schooling ?

                              How would you have ordered your online CD's ?

                              How would you have passed the days, seeing as you already routinely complain that you are bored and going mental WITH internet ?

                              • I also wonder what this would’ve been like in the 90s (for example) without the internet and people being unable to learn or work from home, but in some respects it makes me wonder if the fact we were less travelled back then means it wouldn’t have spread so rapidly and widely?

                                  That’s a naive approach though when you get into it. No one is saying we couldn’t have survived without the internet, but in terms of keeping ourselves occupied and connected with people, working and earning money, it’s gone a long, long way towards helping a lot of people.

                                  Just think - no Netflix, no Spotify, no ebooks. No FaceTime, no Teams, no Zoom, no whatsapp. No ebooks, no Amazon, no eBay. It would be like turning your internet off tomorrow and not having it for three months and not being allowed out to the shops to buy something new to do.

                                    The world is definitely smaller now, but based on how Boris refused to shut the borders I’m not sure it would have made much difference. Spanish Flu back in the 1920s went global and it was rare people left their own villages, let alone country, so I guess it would have found a way one way or another.
