  1. COVID-19 Outbreak

    A few days ago: we're totally ready for this! No problem, no panic! We've taken precautions! Since yesterday: we're running out of mouthmasks and the chemicals to test people. Seems like we were completely ready to tackle this then! You can't blame people for being suspicious to be honest. Other countries have done far more extensive testing than we have. How can we run out of mouthmasks and tests in only a few days? Plus we don't have the infrastructure to make our own mouthmasks in Belgium.
  2. COVID-19 Outbreak

    How are they? Is it like the flu? Are they very sick?
  3. US Politics/Elections Thread

    Indeed. Donations to political parties are even strictly regulated. Some artist won a prize here recently and wanted to donate the money to a political party, but the amount was too big.
  4. COVID-19 Outbreak

    You're mixing up percentage of cases with fatalities. It literally says in your article there were no deaths in this age group (0-9).
  5. COVID-19 Outbreak

    In Belgium, any kid has a higher risk from being involved in some road accident than it has from being in serious danger of this virus. It's delusional to think you can protect it from all possible threats or dangers. That's life. Fear won't solve anything and at some point your kid will have to go to school again, or it will be in trouble.
  6. COVID-19 Outbreak

    If anything, wearing gloves and not touching your face seems more effectieve than a mouthmask, no? Why isn't anyone wearing gloves when you usually get sick from hand contact and then touching your face.
  7. COVID-19 Outbreak

    Overreaction or not, people should listen to what experts and government are saying. If you think you might have corona, call the doctor and let him refer you to a hospital, so they know you're coming. A patient around here just went to ER They've been saying again and again not to go to the doctor's or hospital to sit in a waiting room. It's great you're not seriously ill, but please consider other people who might be more at risk. Also, kids seem to not get sick, which is great, but they could carry it and infect others. I for one will be happy if the next few weeks go by quickly and I stay healthy.
  8. We'll know for sure next month, I guess. There's no update, it's just the thread starter losing his patience
  9. COVID-19 Outbreak

    I heard Trump say not to worry as they have the 'very best people'. He repeated that a few times. I found it funny the subtitler changed that into the Dutch equivalent for 'best health professionals'.
  10. COVID-19 Outbreak

    I wasn't going to speak scandal. It was a genuine question.
  11. COVID-19 Outbreak

    The bolded part made me LOL. I've a serious question. What happens when your kid goes back to school next week? More than probably other kids will have gone on a ski trip to northern Italy. How will you deal with that.
  12. While that's true, it's confusing to see the thread title changed and implied there's an update when there isn't. I think it's annoying personally.
  13. Yeah, still a month to go, right? 🤔 Not that I'm holding my breath
  14. US Politics/Elections Thread

    Yeah, and I think that's sad. The future depending on someone who's almost 80? Sounds very ironic.
  15. Friends HBO Reunion Special

    Yeah, it was funny. Back in the day I didn't meet a single soul who didn't love it. Now it seems like everyone's too cool for it, even on a GNR forum. And yes, the fact that it's popular again now proves that it aged well.
  16. COVID-19 Outbreak

    I hope you're growing good bacteria then
  17. US Politics/Elections Thread

    Sanders and Biden are both almost 80. That's just ridiculous. I don't get how either of them could get the nomination. They've had their time. Move over and let someone 30 or 40 years younger do it. It's sad that the US president seems to have to be someone that old, as Trump is in his 70s too.
  18. In the Axl chats, Axl said Brian May wasn't happy with how his parts turned out. He didn't recognize himself or sth like that. If that is what you are refering to, it's in one of the Axl chats.
  19. General Chat / Random Musings

    You shouldn't read that crap paper If it were mine, I'd send them an e-mail correcting them, because that's obviously not right. I just checked my paper. They use the words extreme right sympathies, xenophobe and racist, which all seem to be correct. Apparently he also complains about not having found love in his manifesto. Sad little man projecting his frustrations on people with a different background.
  20. General Chat / Random Musings

    As far as I read, he's been called extreme right wing. There's a clear distinction with right wing, I think. If I hear extreme right wing, I think racism. I don't think racism when I think of right wingers.
  21. 06/17/20 - Warsaw, PL - PGE Narodowy

    I think Poland 2018 was the first show ever Tako didn't get front row, because they sold loads of early entry tickets. In most countries ee means front row, but it doesn't in Poland. I remember it was a lot cheaper compared to other shows, but you didn't get a VIP bag or weren't guaranteed a spot in the front. If I recall correctly, there was either no GC or the GC was bigger than the GA.
  22. He didn't seem very connected to the band to say the least. At the very least management could have told him though.
  23. I don't think it impacted Axl at all. From what I gather, BBF rarely saw or talked to Axl. If I recall correctly, BBF was forced to tour even though he had been in a serious car crash and was in terrible pain. Axl supposedly didn't even know he'd been in an accident. There was a video of Axl leaning onto him at a show and BBF grimacing painfully.
  24. GNR WOMEN'S CHAT 2020 *NEW*

    It's not as if he hasn't tried, of course. https://www.therock.net.nz/home/funny-shit/2016/06/axl-rose-wants-this-photo-removed-from-the-internet.html
  25. I don't have tinnitus, young man, thanks to my ear plugs
