These stories are good.....To remind people that the destroyed lives will be 1,000 times worse than a disease with a 99.8 recovery rate..... 

When you actually think about that  - 50% closed - you realise the impact of this total nonsense. When the historians look back at this, they will condemn the governments of the world for the near des

I completely agree. They should be writing about the positive affects of covid. Instead of 27,000-30,000 sex workers out of work they should write, "30,000 families, moms and children reunited" or "La

Same with me, but if we returned in a rubber boat in the dover area, they give you a bus ride to a 4 star hotel free inclusive of food and cash illegal immigrants  human rights  Ha Ha Ha,,,,,us pensioners have no human rights.  in fact we are saving the UK vast amount of money, no winter payments, no free transport, not using the NHS and doctors, etc,, BUT yet they  freeze our pension,, that should be illegal.

Totally agree.  Eventually they'll starve us into returning where our demands on Social Services will cost more than the small % increase linked to cost of living.

Not really a fair way to look at this...

 

Imagine that you're running a business with some street traffic, say it's a restaurant or a massage shop or a cleaning service. It depends on people having access to your front door. Then the local government comes along and puts a transformer station across your entrance. Or puts a huge fence around your property, essentially making it impossible for your customers to get access. The government also asks you to be patient, the fence will be removed. Soon. But time drags on.

 

You have zero income. Your business would still have customers, if only they could get access. You would just "suck it up"? You wouldn't feel any need to ask for compensation from the local government? Or ask for the fence to be removed?

Sadly that is what is happening on Sukumvit Rd near me. Along with all the covid issues they have taken 3 to 4 months to build 200 metres of road. It is very hard to drive from one side of the road to the other. There were 5 or 6 restaurants along the road and I was there at 8 pm on Saturday night. All in darkness.

If you look at some of the popular Youtube channels , you can earn money by inviting the viewers in a live chat and "customers " will tip the channel. And there's a lot of money involved. I watched one channel the other day (live football chat), and they earned around $4000 in just 60 minutes . But they have 500k viewers +

If a bar decides to go digital just to show girls smiling at them,  and have a drink I am sure there are stupid enough people out there willing to tip large amounts of money.

Yes I would probably be desperate enough  to try that myself if I run out of money. 
  

Do they accept tips in bitcoins?????, 55555555

Another thought I had is if this new "online bar" model is successful, what prevents those absolutely beautiful girls in Brazil, Italy and Sweden from playing exactly the same game? Problem with an "online bar" is that it makes no difference where in the world it is. All that matters is if the girls can entice the viewers to part with their money. Right?

That's been on line for many years. Plenty of sites where one can have a "private chat" with a prostitute, in exchange for some money.

Never bothered myself when I could have the real thing in LOS.

If Thai bar owners are doing that now that they are long behind in the game. Can't see it catching on biggly as long as the girls keep their clothes on.

Paypal, Bitcoin,  Youtube, Twitch. All you need is an email-address to tip money. 

While I'm sure it's possible my question is "why would anyone part with good money to see a girl in a bar"? Surely men are not THAT desperate?

Yes it is crazy. How could people waste money like that. Does any one know what the web addresses for the live feeds are?Asking for a friend of course.
