    That's a universal fact, it pretty much applies as much to shooting a Hollywood movie, or one typical hour in the UK, as it does to Covid 19.

    Are there any facts with regard to coronavirus? Are people infected because it is simply their opinion that they are infected? If your opinion is that they are not, does that make it true. If it does, you can believe away the whole thing and we can go back to work.

    I can't discuss this any further with you, until you try to accept that facts & beliefs, whilst not mutually exclusive, are different things. John Hopkins University.

    I'm no more learned than the average man. The data at hand is all we have, it neither serves me nor hinders me. You are making the mistake of equating facts (OK I admit it's hard to know precisely how they relate, but it's better than 'feelings') with opinion. Opinion is personal belief/truth, it's your right, but if I believe looking at pictures of scanitily clad people will cause a thunderbolt to fry me, it won't happen unless there is a tangible mechanism for that to happen . Objective fact is universal truth that affects everyone the same, irrespective of what they believe. If you have a source for more credible data, than say John Hopkins, please disclose it. If people think that Boris has done a good job, they will vote for their local Conservative candidate in the next election. Even if they don't think he has done a good job, they may well still do this if there is no credible alternative.

    Then don't read the news if it upsets you. People criticise governments, free speech allows this, people also criticise governments for some things, despite the fact they might support the same government in others. Have you never criticised a government? As you say, the EU states are ahead of us in the curve, so why aren't we doing better with the help of forewarning? You brought the solidarity of the EU into the discussion.

    Tell me 2 things.. 1 How is our rate of infections and rate of fatalities significantly different to Spain, Germany & France? 2 What difference would there be had we not gone through Brexit.

    Start a blog, or a vlog. Then you can just broadcast. You don't seem to want discussion, you just put forward personal views/beliefs with no reference and don't critically review them. Somehow, you are managing to politicise this tradegy to continue your pro Brexit views (which are you prerogative, of course, but it seems rather bad taste).
  11. There aren't really any beans that magically extract faster than others at the same grind (different origins do extract to slightly different levels, but are all within a normal tolerance, so changes to method only need to be tiny tweaks for fine tuning...if at all). Personally, I'd aim for the longer brew time, but if you find a bean that you like at shorter brews (maybe a natural), that's entirely possible. Tasting it will tell you whether this is happening & repeatable. My logic is, I like to drink coffee below 60c, so for steeps I don't see much reason to end the brew before then, I use a preheated cup with longer steeps too.

    Do you have a reference to this news? You can't make an offensive statement, then back peddle with mealy-mouthed, barrack room lawyer antics to put the responsibility of perceived offense on to the offended. Please try and have a reasonable conversation, you said earlier it was your intent to do just that.

    So who is using what method? I do hope there isn't much lag in Spain's figures, seeing as they have more than 10x the fatalities per million of population, than UK does.

    But this hasn't just happened here. 19/3 was a week ago (3269 recorded cases in UK, 140 fatalities), before businesses were asked to close. Are all the governments in league in this social experiment?
