I got a message from Paradox Weert to say that they're open 11:00 - 21:00 from 1st June. I've asked them whether that's inside or just takeaway.
They have confirmed that it's takeaway only until 1st September

Maybe we should start a rumour that cannabis is the miracle cure and encourage large scale cultivation and consumption to defeat the epidemic.
Canadian scientists are testing whether compounds in marijuana can prevent coronavirus from 'hijacking' human cells

Re: More coffeeshop pictures

I'm still adding more of these from time to time. I've attempted to improve the layout mechanism too. If you have a very large screen (above 1920 x 1200) I'd be very interested to know how well these pages work, or don't. In fact I'd be interested in their behaviour on any device, especially any iss...

Re: Virus

Ok so stop complaining. What’s the answer? Obviously locking everyone up in their houses for the rest of their lives isn’t going to work. Obviously not. Ideally you don't let things get so out of control that you have to resort to that. Also, I was passed an article yesterday arguing that strict lo...

Re: Virus

I posted this a while ago on Facebook: Imagine if a country like this one managed to infect 60% of its population only to discover that those people have not gained immunity. Not only would that country have wasted countless lives for nothing, they would also have created a massive reservoir of infe...

Re: Virus

Don’t forget, the lockdown was never intended to kill the virus but simply to slow it’s spread untill the nhs has passed its peak flu season and can cope with the numbers. Yes, exactly. The aspiration in UK was never to contain and eradicate, it was just to mitigate and pursue herd immunity. Countr...

Re: Virus

Here in the USA lifting the lock down, has become all the talk, however a great number of people don’t want to go out until there’s some sort of game changing breakthrough, my wife and I are in that group. How do you guys feel about this The problem in USA and here in UK is that the virus has been ...

Re: Virus

I posted this elsewhere: The SARS outbreak, in the early 2000s, was mostly confined to China and SE Asia. It was much more deadly than Covid but less infectious. It was ultimately contained before it spread around the world. Europe was barely touched by SARS. We heard about it, especially when it br...

Re: Who's going to virtual 420?

TransApenninesCouple dropped in to smoke a fattie earlier. Essexturk420 joined silently but had a nice looking consumption device. I'll open the meeting again tomorrow on or before 4pm Amsterdam time (3pm UK time) ready for 4.20. It's gonna be a bit early if you're over in western US! I think this i...

Re: Who's going to virtual 420?

This is turning into Virtual 420 Live! It's no substitute for being in Amsterdam but still good to see everyone. AzLaker has much shorter hair than when I last saw him, Macky showed us his amazing garden, Smirks shared a bong with us, Gapie joined us from Mr K coffeeshop (lucky bugger!), Tor the dog...

Re: Who's going to virtual 420?

Wow! First attempt seemed to work well. Macky, Smirks, Gapie, AzLaker, TransApenninesCouple and me made it into our virtual coffeeshop. Willjay and Lafe got in touch just after we finished. I'm just about to get some dinner but I'll open up the virtual coffeeshop again at 22:00 UK time (about 2.5 ho...
