I try to watch the “Stories of the day” segment on Jeremy Vine on television in the morning to help get some ideas for my post of the day although quite a few of the stories are not suitable.
Some of the stories I chose not to write about recently were, aquariums are a sign of a mid life crisis, although I’ve always thought buying an expensive sports car you can barely get into to or a powerful motorcycle when the fastest thing you have mastered before is a bicycle.
Another story was, ostrich eggs help to keep you young, not you might think by eating them with a fine full English breakfast but by smearing the yolk on your face, personally I think I will just try to grow old gracefully, after all no-one wants to look stupid or as if they have egg on their face as the saying goes.
I’m saving the recent Manchester United debacle for a later date, however the item this morning about Covid vaccines did catch my attention.
There was a virologist called Dr Chris Smith who was putting forward the case for vaccinations for young children which seemed to make perfect sense to me, however a young lady on the panel took the alternative view that it wasn’t necessary for the young to be vaccinated as they were less likely to catch Covid.
The professional virologist persisted and repeated his point that the young could catch Covid and pass it on to older more venerable members of society which was the main reason to vaccinate the young but was having no luck persuading the 22 year old Dominic Samuels who is apparently a Politics student at the University of York and a spokesperson for Turning Point UK and someone who I imagine is not an expert on virology.
The young Ms Samuels continued with her argument and seemed to imply that she herself would not be having the vaccine which not only seemed a little foolish but left me wondering why so many young people are willing to argue a point about almost anything even when they know absolutely nothing about the subject.
There is not a day goes by nowadays without me thinking, what a very strange world we live in.
