Epidemiological Study — 8 Comments

  1. Is common sense creeping in? Take the holiday and enjoy getting serious rust. That should help. That and abominal food, poor beer, even worse whisky, cantankerous landladies/cottage owners/hoteliers, and nowhere sensible to take the dog. Should do you a power of good.

    But don’t forget to take the laptop and give us a running commentary on how terrible time off really can be. Enjoy!

    • Unfortunately for various reasons a holiday is shelved for this year.  However I suppose I could take an imaginary holiday and give a running commentary on that?  An imaginary expedition to climb Everest?  A weeks stay in Fawlty Towers?  A trip to the moon?

      • OK. Take an imaginary holiday, could be more fun than reality. Very sorry funds will not allow an actual time out, but welcome to the real world. My solution was to move to an holiday destination. Short walk to anywhere, and no pressure to go home afterwards. May I suggest a trip to Fawlty Towers? Could be just up your street.

  2. If you have a relative risk of 3.0 or more then it's causation. However, if the R:R is one or below then a lack of holiday is actually beneficial, (apparently), but you must take into account the 'funding bias' also.

  3. You could try to visit all the fish and chip shops in Leinster and then write a book about them. This odyssey might take from six months to a year. Curried chips have all the allure of the exotic Orient, so you could imagine that you are in India – or Leicester.

    • There aren't any.  Or none that I know of.  A fish & Chip shop has to serve steaming hot chips soaked in salt and vinegar and wrapped in a paper to qualify and I don't know of any around here anyway.  They all use little cartons and give out little packs of salt and vinegar.  Useless.

      Ah the sweet scent of vinegar soaked paper in one hand a battered cod in the other……..!

  4. You'd miss all the aggro and stress of checking the car, packing suitcases, traffic jams, delays, other people's screaming kids and 101 other grief-filled things associated with holiday mania.  Holidays were created to make us appreciate more fully how sweet home is!
