This section of Tweaked for your Pleasure has the many different rants I have posted over the years. Just a bit of light-hearted reading!

Stop scaring the children

Just like how I imagine most people reading Tweaked for your Pleasure have at one point had to go to a physical shop in order to buy some food due to a delivery company not delivering, barely anything came or any other reason and today was one of those days with a catch.

So today I went to the local CO-OP in order to buy some food as ASDA, yet again, did not deliver a third of the order and didn’t replace it for anything nor took it off my bill and with my diet, I couldn’t really keep ordering out food every day so I got into the car and drove.

The negativity of the Internet

If you are worried about the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, please do check out the NHS’s website for further information. Good chances are you will okay but stay at home – don’t pass it onto someone that might not be!

At the time of writing this rant, there is a pandemic of SARS-CoV-2 that is affecting most nations at this time and while it looks like something that the masses will survive, it is something that is very important to deal with but as a former microbiologist, I am starting to notice just how horrible the mass amount of false information on the Internet can be and why it is harmful.
