Happy June, and welcome to the 36th issue of ‘How Curious!’ ✌️
With anti-body tests now available in the UK it’s nice to finally confirm that I did indeed have Covid-19, and that I now have immunity. Exactly what protections this brings are unknown at this stage, but it’s certainly positive news! 🙌💉
I also got out for my first round of golf in about five years. Just as enjoyable, and frustrating as I remember! ⛳

Virtual Grandstand
Denmark recently restarted their football league season, albeit behind closed doors. AGF Aarhus took a novel approach to bring their fans closer to the action, creating a giant screen, 40 metres long and 3m high, filled with fans watching via Zoom video links! Around 10,000 joined in to watch the match live. Sci-Fi seems ever more realistic these days.
Pros: Less queues for beers. Cons: One more Zoom meeting to attend!
