acceptable for an old person desperate for the toilet.

Because most people have become pussified snowflakes, unwilling to
accept modest risk.

Agreed. Although in the case of the stairlift, at any speed you are
safe due to the supplied belt. If you don't use it, your fault not
theirs, so no compensation claim, nothing for them to worry about. And
they could even make it disable the motor if you don't fasten the belt.

But people have become incredibly illogical too. Ever notice all the
obese people wearing masks? Apparently it never occurred to them that
being obese was more of a threat than the Wuhan virus?

Agreed. Although I've seen nobody in the UK wearing a mask, we don't

Which is why you have high levels of contamination.

Which is the choice of each person.

To infect lots of others by their stupidity like you do.

And you clearly haven't been watching the stats,

You are too stupid to even work out what they mean.

the UK rate dropped to a quarter

Pity about all those corpses.

when the world rate dropped to two thirds.

Because it takes time to get to the places that don't
see as much international movement of people, stupid.

Maybe we're using what's called an immune system?

Nope, that's the result of the lockdown, stupid.

If they are so afraid of dying, why don't they change their diet and
lose some weight? The evidence is clear, metabolically healthy people
are largely unaffected by the Wuhan virus.

Agreed. When a fat person says they have a medical problem, I just say
"Eat. Less. Food." You don't need to change your diet, just eat less
of it. Or go for a run or something, it's not rocket science.
