Where are you on the continuum from cell block H to cool hand luke?
Same here, youth close together not keeping the distance.I may have to go out for supplies later. Other than that I'm doing my daily exercise and working from home.
From what I've seen whilst out with the dog, the only people ignoring the lockdown are teenage lads. I put this down to stupidity.
Apparently Lee Mack has it now too.Yep, big fan of Lee Mack. The first few series' of 'Not Going Out' were sublime - I had to start recording them because I was missing too many jokes with the relentless flow of them. Tim Vine was a co-writer with Mack in the early days, wow, what a partnership. Later series were just about watchable for me.
Lee's a cracking stand-up as well.
Perhaps yet another north-south divide thing? All the best comics are from the north of course!
Alcoholics and smokers are other ones who will be susceptible. People with restrictive diets?From what I've seen whilst out with the dog, the only people ignoring the lockdown are teenage lads. I put this down to stupidity.
They say that when you are obese that your at risk to, allot of them are in IC.Smokers are higher risk for sure.
Not heard or read anything about the drunks though, but presumably excess drinking can lead to 'underlying health conditions' as well.
The trouble with BMI is that it's based on height and weight, muscle mass isn't taken into account.No getting away from it is that if you are obese you are far more likely to be getting pretty much any disease (or more likely illness) than someone who is not and that illness will tend to affect you worse than someone of correct weight. Your body (so cardiac systems, immune systems and organs etc) is already under strain just from the extra fat....an illness just makes it worse. Add in smoking it excessive drinking and you are chipping years of your life. ...yes we all know an overweight smoker/drinker who lived to be ninety something...but they are the exception rather than the rule. Overall smokers/heavy drinkers die younger...fact.
What is more surprising is the medical definition of obese...often it's anyone having a BMI of 30 or more...but more commonly it's anyone more than 20% over target weight...so let's say you should weigh 10 stone...but you weigh 12...you are obese...not a lot is it ? So now a lot more of you are obese than you thought ! But 20 percent is quite a bit. That's 20% more load on your heart and joints than they were made for....so they wear out quicker....how many really old fat people do you see?....not that many when you think about it...they don't make it that far. You would think twice about trusting your cars suspension is it was under 20% more load than it was designed for. And before you ask I'm about a stone over weight....but losing it quite quick at the moment as I can't pop across to the garage to get sweets every five minutes like I can when I'm at work!
