Here's a common-sense tip on how to reduce "the numbers": unless you feel sick, don't get a corona test! If you must get a test, don't report a positive result to the authorities. The false positives and the asymptomatic infections will keep "the numbers" high forever, giving the government a reason/excuse to extend the lockdown indefinitely. Wake up, everyone!


Hands off my SARS-CoV-2!

It keeps me in business.


PS also, it tends to kill a lot of naysayers whenever big brother relaxes

Faking it May 2

Engrenages made me chuckle last night as a couple of villains with a sense of humour had registered mobile phones in the names of Alain Melon and Gilbert De Niro.

First, that might present an interesting translation challenge if your language doesn’t call a melon a melon.

Second, I’m thinking of switching to a life of crime and I need a name like that. Any ideas?

Names May 3

Chris Almighty? Crusher Chris? Cruel Chris?

And, although it doesn't exactly inspire fear and respect, considering what you do when not translating, how about "Chris On A Bike"?

Rich T May 3

I actually know someone called Rich T, and that’s way funnier if you are familiar with cheap British biscuits.

Now my rap name has always been and will always be CJ Chilli, which opens up some interesting rhymes, but that's a whole other essential foodstuff.

The All-New Mr T May 3

I suppose this must be a nod to The A Team, Mr T. Or is it in reaction to the other Mr T next door? Or to Mr TiL?

But if you want it to be credible, you're going to have to do a Michael Jackson colour change in reverse, shave your head at the sides to leave just a tuft, grow copious facial hair lower down to compensate, buy lots of heavy jewellery, gain twenty or thirty kilos, bare most of your threatening, badass torso at all times, and start rehearsing some of B.A.'s growly stuff

Oh, and you'll have to take a DIY course for all those intensive preparations halfway through, along with welding, electrics, trap-setting, and explosives and firearms which never seem to actually kill anyone.
