Excerpts from the video Two virus experts answer your questions on coronavirus/COVID-19. Read the Content Gorilla repurposed post here.

Hi I’m Sunanda Creagh, I’m the Digital Storytelling Editor at The Conversation and I am here today with two of Australia’s leading researchers on viruses and vaccines. professor Michael Wallach is researcher in viruses and vaccines at the University of Technology Sydney and he’s here with Dr Lisa Sedger, an academic virologist also from UTS. Thanks very much for joining me. Today we’re asking these researchers to answer questions about coronavirus and COVID-19 from you guys, our readers and our audience. We’re going to start with Dr Sedger. Adam would like to know how long can this virus survive in various temperatures on a surface? Say a door handle or a counter at a public place. Oh well that’s an interesting question because we hear a variety of answers. Some people say that these types of enveloped viruses can exist for two to three days but it really depends on the amount of moisture and humidity and what happens on that surface afterwards, whether it’s wiped off or something, so potentially for longer than that, potentially up to a week, but with cleanings and disinfectants etc.

Before we get into this weeks Friday Funnies, Five Older Ladies, I would like to say that in these troubled times, with the Coronavirus and all, we need to keep our spirits up. I’m sure a good laugh is beneficial to everybody, especially those stuck in self-isolation.

French Joke Friday Funnies

Today’s Friday Funnies is a French joke. I’m calling it a french joke because it has a French woman in it and it’s funny.

French Joke A Woman And Her Dog

There was this American soldier who was looking for a place to sit on the train. The only seat available was directly adjacent to a well dressed middle-aged French woman, and her dog was using the chair. The weary soldier asked, “Ma’am, please move your dog so I can have that seat.” 

The French woman looked down her nose at the American, sniffed and said, You Americans are so rude. Can’t you see my little FiFi is using that seat?”

Smoking In The Rain

My smoking in the rain post does not mean I’m promoting smoking at all, and I know this is supposed to be a Friday Funnies post. It is a Friday Funnies post, and all I’m doing is trying to find an exciting way to introduce my Friday Funnies Joke and why not post a joke about smoking in the rain? Especially if I found it to be pretty funny.

However, before we get to the joke, I want everyone to know that I think smoking is a filthy habit. I would never take it up. I lie. I did smoke, a long, long time ago. I was actually in primary school at the time, and because I couldn’t afford to buy them, I used to roll my own. I used pages from my school exercise book as cigarette paper, and I tried different material for tobacco. The foulest stuff I ever used was the dried silk off of the old corn cob. The most volatile was the bard off of the grapevine. Once I puffed so hard, it burst into flames.   

The best stuff I ever used was the dry grass I found in an alleyway. But that supply was short-lived. What happened was one day when I was casually walking down the alley to get my amount of grass. I found this dog pissing on my supply. I haven’t smoked a cigarette since.   

But hang on a second. This post isn’t about me; it’s about smoking in the rain
