Whatever else 5G is, it isn’t safe hex - more of a bit overflow if you ask me.

Surprise! That £339 world's first 'anti-5G' protection device is just a £5 USB drive with a nice sticker on it
There's a black hole lurking within 1,000 light years of Earth – and you can see stars circling it with the naked eye

Re: How long before familes feel the pinch
Less income, for sure. More expenditure seems less obvious though. For me, the time at home has cut expenditure because I’m not buying cups of coffee, sandwiches and so on (nor am I burning fuel in the car).
I would imagine most families who weren’t getting free school meals are seeing food and drink costs dropping.

Re: Rinse and repeat?
To expand on swm’s response: iron can and will fuse in stars, but...
1) you need a whole load of energy flying around before it will start fusing.
2) as noted, it absorbs rather than releases energy and so will actually cool a star down.
IIRC, iron tends mostly to fuse in supernovae because you need those sorts of conditions to force the fusion to happen.
In approximate answer to your question: To ignite fusion, it seems Earth would need to gather more than 80 times the mass of Jupiter in hydrogen. Unfortunately Earth lacks the gravity to do so; argon is the lightest gas it can hold on to, and then only barely. Igniting iron fusion would take several solar masses of hydrogen and a loooong time.

Facebook: Yeah, we hoovered up 1.5 million email address books without permission. But it was an accident!
Ever used VFEmail? No? Well, chances are you never will now: Hackers wipe servers, backups in 'catastrophic' attack
I’m not surprised there’s another round of layoffs being rumoured. The last was counterproductive in various areas, with some selections seemingly driven by ideology more than practicality, and some decisions apparently cost far more than even long term savings could justify (as well as seeming to damage business long term).
