My doc told me they're more accurate if you take the reading after having them on for at least 5 minutes. I took mine into hospital when I had lung surgery recently and it was still giving me readings either higher or lower than the hospital's machines.

Retail oximetres are famously unreliable.I've had a couple now and the readings are all over the place.

Hang in there man. The stats say that even for those who are high risk, the chances of them getting seriously ill are statistically extremely low.

The UK has approved the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine (the first Western country to do so) and will start vaccinating people next week.

JJ Cale wrote After Midnight, which of course Eric Clapton covered. Check out just how cool this dude is in this live version. Also check out the keyboard player in the silk jacket, completely out of his box.

Before anyone asks, I don't know either.

It sounds like he had pleurodesis surgery that fuses the lining of the lung to the chest wall to prevent air pockets getting in between that cause the collapse. That's what I had and I was as right as rain in a couple of weeks.

Tell me about it. I had 2 chest drains which were in for 5 days. They go in 9 inches.

Well done to BW919. Hope Geerts is ok. Strange as he seemed to get straight back up on his feet after the crash and next thing he was on the deck. Maybe someone hit him? Vialle looked blazingly fast.

Yeah that's another Americanism, referring to someone going to ''the'' hospital as if there is only one!

I've heard the expression "the data are in'' quite a few times on US news programs recently which is why I brought it up. It just doesn't sound right to me. Yes good point about Yamaha but both ways of saying it sound ok to me at least.

Reply to Grammar with Falcon 11/4/2020 8:29 PM

Not sure if it's a grammar thing or not but I've noticed that Americans use the word 'data' in the plural, as opposed to the UK where it's singular. So Americans will say ''the data are in'' whereas as Brits would say ''the data is in''. What's the deal? ... more »

He's got a lung infection off the back of contracting Covid apparently https://mxvice.com/positive-test-jorge-prado/

Yes and so are other riders too. I just don't think Vialle will have it all his own way. It's not like he even has to win. If he's got any sense he'll play safe for the title.

I dunno. The last time he rode there he started in second in both motos (behind Prado) and landed up 3rd and 6th.

I like the track but I doubt they could make any major changes to it from GP to GP, so I'd like to see a mudder for one of them just to mix it up a bit.

Onboard with Mario Roman on Day 1. The first sequence is bloody hilarious. ''Sorry Bro!''.
