    General Coronavirus chit chat thread - non-travel specific

    As an early '60's aged person with compromised health, I am hoping we only have another year or two of travel bans to wait out before I can do some limited overseas travel. I plan to obviously wait out the travel bans period, and then wait and see what happens. i will certainly be getting the...

    General Coronavirus chit chat thread - non-travel specific

    i have read reasonably widely on the various COVID threads here and elsewhere. from my non- medical and reasonably uninformed view, it seems as though coming out of, and living with COVID, until and/or if a vaccine is found, comes down to death numbers. how many people are we comfortable with...

    Virgin Australia Financially Secure? [Now in Voluntary Administration]

    thank you roughie. i tried to look at the AFR, but couldn't read quickly enough - a speed reader course maybe in order LOL..... but from your other info, i get the general idea of who they are. One hopes there aren't too many mum and dad like investors. Or people who don't know much about...

    Orbital Mechanics - and Similar Travel Methods

    Thank you for your encouragement albatross710. In the mid 70's in Yr 10 I did quite OK in Maths and Science, but in YRS 11 and 12 I tried to do Maths A and B - and scored 14 out of 16 points under the old Radford scheme over four units. My Physics was abysmal - so changed to Economics for my...
