    Reality has surpassed any satire and anything Monty Python did, and is officially more unreal than the games we're playing.

    That's a really good point actually, it must be hard being a satirical comedian these days where the reality is just so crazy that if you wrote it as satire, people would say it was too far fetched.

    Rory Bremner made the same observation many years ago (it's well over 10 years, I'm sure), saying it was getting harder and harder to write good satire as the politicians and public faces of large businesses were doing things and were themselves so ridiculous that it was becoming hard to satirise them, their actions were themselves bordering on satire. It's got worse since then

    I'm not saying there cannot be a connection, but it is very dangerous to think that correlation and causation are the same. If a huge number of people get vaccinated in a short time, there will be seemingly connected occurrances of certain symptoms, illnesses or other things just because of statistics and chance, while not having any connection with the vaccination.

    I just wanted to write an update.

    No... well no is a bit to much negative. It is a bit better but far from ideal. I can smell a little bit better. Although we all know how badly gas smells. The gas which is used on our stove. I did not smelled that at all. When I now turn on the gas without lit it, I can smell it a tiny little bit but I won’t turn my head away because the bad odour.
    With my taste it is more or less the same. I can taste some sweetness, sour and bitter but salt I do not taste at all. I’m still hoping for fully recovering of taste and smell although I start to believe I have to live with a lesser smell and taste for the rest of my life.

    Health wise it goes much better. I’m back to work fulltime although at the end of the day the energie is completely drained.
    I still can’t jump in my rig and race a few laps. It still is to exhausting for me. So I only play games like SnowRunner lol...

    All in all it goes better. i am a happy and caring person by nature. Since the covid I lost that but now it is comming back so I know it is going in the right direction.

    Thanks for asking by the way.

    Well hopefully you'll get these senses back to 100% soon. Such a strange effect to lose some of your senses due to a virus infection. Hopefully scientists can shed some light on this as they learn more and more about it. At least you can taste your own cakes for now when you make some.

    Yep. I also noticed, when people start eating more ice cream their skin colour changes and some even start looking like lobsters!
