The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“I don‘t really care about the money. It’s more about making a statement that things like this are unacceptable. I want them to be known that what was done shouldn’t happen to me or anyone else for even the smallest disability. Ryan Pacheco


Quote II

Look not mournfully into the past. It comes not back again. Wisely improve the present. It is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future, without fear.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Quote III

“I know D.C. residents have been very closely following the public health guidelines and they will embrace this,”Washington D.C Mayor Muriel Bowser

Embrace? Project much Muriel?


Quote IV

"Although her political rhetoric is skeletal and her skin is thin to ­criticism, surely that is the next step on her Crusade for ­Goodness." Meghan Markle's biographer Tom Bower


Quote V

“It has been built in bad faith. It’s a desecration of our burial ground.” Julie Seitz

Quote VI

"Running any national service on this scale means that, on extremely rare occasions, high standards are not always met and from the millions of calls answered, a very small number of safeguarding incidents were identified,Samaritans chief executive Julie Bentley

Coffee canisters are smaller. Bacon packages are smaller. Oh goody a new word in The ONT's lexicon: Shrinkflation

Shrinking Rolls Of Toilet Paper? Blame The Fed!

We’ve been talking a lot about rising prices. The CPI has come in hotter than expected every month this year. We’re paying more to buy less.

We see the impacts of inflation on price tags, but sometimes it squeezes us more subtlety. It’s known as “shrinkflation.”

Are you an Enemy of The State?

But given the direction this country is headed, should I contemplate the reasons a person might contrive a persona for me that makes me an enemy of the state?

I decided to work my way through this exercise and to see where it might lead me. At the end of the process, I have to admit that I felt just a bit uneasy.

Now keep in mind that there could be a vast difference between the data that the government gathers that it determines makes me a national threat and data that only relates to my exercise of free speech without my intending to do anything insidious in this country. But the differences are just a matter of perspective, right? The list below identifies their potential conclusions about me, and I follow up that information with my own assessment. Here is what I identified:

No kidding he it didn't have a valid snatch. New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard crashed out of the Olympics today after making history as the first trans woman to compete in a solo event.

The 43-year-old, who transitioned in 2012, was competing in the 87kg+ category but failed to record a single valid 'snatch' lift in Tokyo.

Hubbard's appearance at the Games on Monday night was mired in controversy - not least because she was well-backed to batter most of her opposition and pick up a medal.

Apparently It’s Very Hard Not to Sexualize Female Athletes

Broadcasts of the Olympics are trying to focus on "sport appeal, not sex appeal," which is apparently harder than it sounds

Once upon a time the Fabulous Mrs. Mis. Hum. and I had children at home. We avoided arrest by just giving them away.

A MOTHER in Brazil has been arrested by police after she allegedly sold EIGHT of her ten children in order to get money to buy drugs.

Marilza Medeiros da Conceicao, from Sao Pedro da Aldeia, Rio de Janeiro, was taken into custody on Tuesday for "promising or carrying out the delivery of a child to a third party, upon payment or reward."


Oh lighten up, I'm only kidding. They all grew up to be productive members of society.

Speaking of kids who will be screwed up as adults. Oh yeah, parenting Do's and Don'ts.


Coco Austin Defends Breast-Feeding 5-Year-Old Daughter Chanel: She ‘Still Likes My Boobs’

Normalizing nursing! Coco Austin explained her decision to continue breast-feeding her 5-year-old daughter, Chanel.

“Chanel still likes my boobs,” the model, 42, exclusively told Us Weekly recently while sharing her parenting dos and don’ts. “It’s a big bonding moment for a mother and your child.”

Hey Sis! Which new hole in your head did your brains leak out of?

A for effort. F for results. Hundreds of AI tools have been built to catch covid. None of them helped.

When covid-19 struck Europe in March 2020, hospitals were plunged into a health crisis that was still badly understood. “Doctors really didn’t have a clue how to manage these patients,” says Laure Wynants, an epidemiologist at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, who studies predictive tools.

But there was data coming out of China, which had a four-month head start in the race to beat the pandemic. If machine-learning algorithms could be trained on that data to help doctors understand what they were seeing and make decisions, it just might save lives. “I thought, ‘If there’s any time that AI could prove its usefulness, it’s now,’” says Wynants. “I had my hopes up.”

Groom — reportedly in tuxedo after wedding — accuses bride of affair with friend while the three of them are stuck in traffic. Then groom shoots friend

Also offered it's hard to wade through the shit advice from CDC/the Hospital/everywhere else.

If this is happening to you, you may want to examine the alternate theory that your advice is just that bad, and that what people are doing is finding out what you think about something, then doing the exact opposite.

Because that works better than listening to you.

Remember, folks... Some of us exist merely to serve as the bad example for others.

65 I'm not an expert on the British aristocracy but my limited understanding is that they tolerate marrying an outsider if and only if the person isn't going to be in line for the throne. And even then it's kind of frowned on, which is probably the real reason why the rest of the family doesn't like the whiny race baiter.

74 >>Is Meghan Markle still a citizen? Wouldn't she have had to give up her citizenship to marry into the royal family? Don't the Brits *frown* on their royals having dual loyalties?

Pretty sure she was required to renounce US citizenship, and IIRC, Trump said he would not grant it back to her when she fled to the US. However, I am sure the Biden has or will streamline that process now.

162 Interesting Olympic history just learned on YouTube from The History Guy, wonder if its all true.

The 1920 games were held in Antwerp even though the country was still pretty much a disaster from the Great War. The 1916 games were supposed to be in Berlin and we all know the next time games were held in Berlin what happened. 1920 saw the first use of the five rings and first use of the Olympic oath. Also these games saw a new generation of Olympians compete as the Great War and the Spanish Influenza had killed many of the earlier Olympians.

The American team was composed of many veterans of the Great War. But getting to the games was an adventure itself. First ship chosen ran aground in Puerto Rico and thus the captured German liner Princess Alice now the Princess Matoika was impressed. Alas the ship had just been used returning American war dead from Europe and smelled. The athletes were consigned to the lower sweltering berths and the food was horrendous. Conditions were so bad more than 100 athletes signed a letter of complaint. Still at the games the Americans won 81 medals.

Just looking at Florida data. Vaccine failure is quite evident there now. Infection rates are correlating with the vaccination rates. Worst is the elderly (all those retirees), which are the most vaccinated.

65 and up crowd are over 70% fully vaccinated.

Overall risk correlates well with age too. So whether there's any ADE/OAS effects going on, or just failing vaccine efficacy would remain to be teased out.

Well that appears to be blowing up in their faces as well looking at the Florida hospitalization data. The most vaccinated elderly hospital rates are going up.

In one case, a Dromedary brand cookbook with lots of date recipes has an artist’s drawing of their products on the back cover. I took a magnifying glass to it to discover that, at least according to the artist, a carton of dates when the cookbook was published was 10 ounces.

Lol.

I do actually notice you get more toilet paper. And my point is not that toilet paper has not gone up in cost, just merely that we aren't getting increasingly smaller rolls of toilet paper for the same price.

Instead the cost of toilet paper has increased, thusly it is not the best example of shrinkflation.

254 Everybody is selling their home, getting an RV, and
going on the road. Ok, I exaggerate but a whole lot of people are doing
this now. I hear more and more each day. People used to go, "well this
place sucks, let's move way over to that place that's so much better!".
But now every place kind of sucks so people are becoming nomads.

Posted by: banana Dream at August 02, 2021 10:00 PM (meTku)

if that is what you want to do, and can do it, I say go for it. I have been a lot of places so I can say some places do suck and some are pretty damn good. The difference is stark really, depending on what you are looking for. If you want friendly people and to live in beautiful areas, no question those places exist. Just like how so many places are dumps and most of the people are clueless if not actually unfriendly.

It might sound cliche but Red Areas are so much more welcoming, it is pretty much night and day.

To show you how much this is blowing up, the local news has the story of our Miss Lindsey catching the 'Rona despite being vaccinated. The optics of that, a big name in the state being the poster boy for vaccine failure is scaring them.

So they're playing Miss Lindsey's statement (read this in his accent), I am so glad I got the vaccine, 'cause it would be soo much worse if I didn't.

They have that statement on near continuous loop.

325 I'm not sure what it's going to take, whether they need to be hit upside the head with a 2x4, but a number of things are clearly in alignment for even the most clueless, it isn't "conspiracy theory" when everything is plainly overt and in your face.

If you've been studying at the University in the last several decades it is obvious Whitey McCrackerson is Persona Non Grata. Not just as a student per se, but in society. This has been the implied if sometimes unspoken thesis that was woven through everything. Once you know what to look for, it becomes a game.

The difference now, is it has been mainstreamed, it isn't content to use weasel words or ambiguous teaching materials, it isn't relegated to required-for-graduation classes taught by wack job anarchist quack perfessers, it is being deployed to government and corporate world, schools, media, and entertainment.

One of the first things that has to happen whenever saboteurs in government or wholever want to start troubles, is a unified approach to demonizing a particular race, or religion, ethnic group, political party, etc. The target group must be "otherized", and made unable to find employment.

326 Since hearing that Rapinoe is 36 years old and probably well past her prime for competing in soccer, and probably a bunch of her cohorts are as well I can't help but now wonder if they knew that their bullshit lawsuit was bullshit but that as long as the lawsuit went on they would not be let go/cycled off the team for younger talent lest the woke idiots of US soccer suffer claims of firing them as retaliation for the lawsuit.

As the glaring examples of vaccine failure hit, they are going to n-tuple down on blaming the unvaccinated. You're gonna be portrayed as absolute pariahs. The Karens are going to be cheerleaders for this.

I'm reading they are fast tracking full FDA approval, and that will be done by the end of Sept. I was hoping there might be a Frances Kelsey or two still in there, but apparently no, and they are being pressured to get 'er done.

Once they get full approval, then the vax mandates are gonna kick in like you're never seen. You're going to be under tremendous pressure.

353 2. The press and academia will be relentless in demonizing the target group. All your troubles - "Everything would be great, except for those (fill in the blank).

Intersstingly enough, the exact same routine, the same pattern always is apparent in the last 100 years or so - Germany, Russia, China, Cuba, Rwanda, Cambodia, Yugoslavia ... it's always the same.

Think about this. Your life may depend on it. In recent memory, a candidate for President called well over half of the population Iredeemably Deplorable. Does that sound like the verbiage of someone who is even remotely interested in you or your family's well being?

Notice that in the brave new world here - there is no forgiveness, there is no redemption, there is no way of protesting your innocence in the "church" of leftism. You are guilty. Because of the color of your skin. "All White People Are Racist." No Exceptions."

If you can't figure out what they have planned, I don't know what to tell you, other than A. you're paying for it, and if you ask them about it, all you're going to get is "That's Not Happening, And It's Good That It Is."

Lotta gaslighting with using the flu vaccine as an analogy. Flu vaccine is only partly effective overall because they are guessing which strains will circulate in the coming season when they design the vaccine. Covid vaccine-no guessing involved. It simply isn't very effective. Very, very unfortunate.

370 The Band received some kind of Canadian award equivalent to a Presidential Model or Kennedy Center Honors here in the US. At the induction ceremony, Garth Hudson had by far the best award speech I have ever heard. He thanked everyone. For several minutes. He named obscure performers no one had ever heard of who played instruments no one had ever heard of, every roadie, every assistant, friends of his parents, and I'm sure some people he just picked from the Ottawa phone book. The other guys caught on to what he was doing after a minute or so and started cracking up, but trying to stifle it because it was an important occasion. Garth did it completely deadpan and finally turned over the podium to Robbie, I think. An impossible act to follow.

377 no soccer expert, but a very good high school aged team could probably beat them. I am not sure what that means in the end because every sport is different. And there is a reason they are segregated by sex.

I know in golf there is no chance a high school team could beat the best women's players. Maybe college but that is a very different thing. The best college teams draw from the best players in the world, and they get the best no matter what country they are from.

"Half-life" of 68 days, and essentially nothing in terms of neutralizing antibody levels after 198 days. And the latest data confirms that the 6 month efficacy at preventing infection is down to 16%.

I never really understood much about them until later years, reading about their rental house "Big Pink" in the Saugerties, by way of my interest in Dylan.

I learned to play the tune a little bit (The Weight) on my guitar, and it even sort of has a little bit of Dylan vibe to it, somewhere in the JWH album frame. I could almost hear it as a Dylan tune, kinda. It's a fun tune to play.

Yep, that's the way it's supposed to work. But looks like the memory immunity from these spike shots ain't too hot, is it? I've read several papers on that. There is very little T-cell memory created by these damned shots.

BTW, natural immunity doesn't suffer from this little problem (if you don't fuck it up by getting vaccinated).

403 Perhaps in the case of tennis it's less of an issue because you're one on one and really only keeping track of the ball
I think when people play tennis at that level they are already moving instinctively to where the ball is going to be hit by their opponent before the ball even gets to the opponent. If you have to think about it, it's too late.

410 I think there is a reason men and women don't compete in tennis at the highest levels, even for some one off event. The Bobby Riggs thing with Billie Jean king was ages ago, for a reason. My guess is power is one of the biggest issues and that one can not be pushed aside.

But many women's sports events are simply more entertaining for me. Tennis for sure and figure skating even moreso. My guess is over the years, female figure skating has generated more interest and money than the male version.

I'm going to try to summarize some highly technical stuff that I was reading, from one of the guys on Denninger's forum about this memory thing and spike-only and the problems with that. I don't understand this stuff in detail, but this guy does, and has opinions.

Creating vaccines against coronaviruses is very hard. There's never been a successful one in humans before. They have done it in animals (but they killed a lot of test animals getting it right). I read about this early in 2020 with the vaccine hopium, and that's one of the reasons I was skeptical from the get-go.

So, due to the panic and freak-out over this thing, tremendous pressure was put on Pharma and the Top. Men. in the field to make a vaccine. DO IT, DO IT OMG OMG! WERE ALL GONNA DIE.

With that and the $$$ signs in Pharma execs eyeballs with all the billions going to be thrown at them, they get reckless and threw caution to the wind.

No doubt. Who watches men figure skating? In tennis, too, I find the women's game easier to watch because it's not as fast and you can follow it better. My daughters and sons played lacrosse, and the women's game (which has no contact, at least not intentionally) is a lot faster and more entertaining. The men's game very quickly breaks down to 6 men surrounding the goal in a hexagon passing to each other trying to create an opening to shoot, with almost no open-field action, while the women are up and down the field, passing and creating shots.

Natural immunity doesn't pay hardly any attention to a coronavirus spike protein. They mutate these so much, it will easily evade, so the immune system, through the school of hard knocks of natural selection has learned to target the more conserved N-proteins, the ones that don't change that much.

And guess what? Cornaviruses *hide their* spikes from the nasal and respiratory tract where they first invade. They only "show their spike" in the way a spike antibody would detect later.

And (this is what the guy on Denninger's forum was saying) this means that a spike-only vaccine *could never be sterilizing* in the first place.

Only an N-protein immunity could be sterilizing (but try that is very hard to do, create an N-protein vaccine that would look like natural immunity).

So from the get go, the Top. Men. knew they were gonna make a non-sterilizing vaccine.

Consider Ninja Warrior. Its a near impossible obstacle course. There a several men that can do it. But there are very few women that do it, but they do get farther than some men. The number of women that have actually hit the buzzer on the semi-finals course is like 2? Maybe 3? And when they actually get to the real event only 2 women have actually finished stage one.

not being argumentative, because I think you are right on the whole. But men dominate darts, bowling, pool, and the short game in golf, not just the long game. My explanation is the pool they are drawing from to find the absolute best is simply much larger.

this doesn't preclude that a woman could be the best at these things, it is just the history. A female could win more World Series of Poker bracelets too than any one ever. I won't look up the rankings because I kind of already know them.

431 You know, I would like to see line-cutting developed as an Olympic sport. Participants would use an axe and/or machete, and would be required to cut a straight line one meter wide through dense second-growth conifers. Distance of one kilometer. You could have singles and two-person teams. Cut trees have to be thrown off the line.

I have had to do this as work, and it is very hard work indeed.

So what the Top. Men. did was come up with the idea of making a vaccine that just flooded the zone with spike protein antibodies. Basically a mass swarm defense. One the virus got in, and activated, this swarm would bind at stop it.

This was basically a reckless thing to get results (and $$$) fast. This would get initial efficacy high, but as we see, wane over time (I'm not even considering all the possible side effects, just the efficacy).

This is how that poster described his opinion of what they did.

But that can be said about most of the competitors regardless of their flag. Maybe some Euros live there and never went to school here, but you would be shocked how many have. I am sure the two competitors from Mexico live here and went to college here.

Masters, biochem. Bachelors, microbiology. I was skeptical because a vaccine that elicits antibodies to a single protein on a virus didn't seem like it would be super effective. I have a distant relative who runs a vaccine research lab at Harvard and he has spent his distinguished 30 + year career trying to create vaccines. If it was as easy as grabbing a gene for a single surface protein and injecting it suspended in something that could get it into the nucleus, we would have vaccines for lots more viruses than we have already. I am not worried about the ADE stuff. I think the clotting and the peri/myocarditis are all caused by the antibodies to the spike protein. I am not concerned that the vaccines will make all of your cells crank out spike protein forever.

Here's a paper exploring some of that I was trying to ramble about, which makes some points:

https://tinyurl.com/2vyefmyr

The front line of defense against these coronaviruses (and other respiratory viruses) is in the mucusa of your nose and respiratory tract. The paper talks about how none of the current vaccines target any of that. They will produce nothing there.

Yet, that's where you have to go to get sterilizing immunity. Your natural immunity does just that.

492 Quint that's a commonly held misconception. "Legal Tender For All Debts Public And Private" means if you owe USD to somebody, they have to take it. For example, you can always pay your property taxes in cabbage. They don't like it, because it's a pain in the ass, but they have to. Or your brother in law lends you $50, he wants his money back, he can't demand a check. An existing debt.

The grocery store, you haven't bought anything yet. They don't have to take cash, because you don't owe them anything. BUT, by the same token - they don't have to take checks either. Or, they could also say "Cash Only!" if they choose. Heck, they could go to barter. The seller always decides what forms of payment are acceptable if you think about it.

493 So how DID your class go?

....

It was a little different. Usually we ease our way through a particular chapter hitting three to five verses at a time.

But I thought it best to read the entire chapter and then revisit key themes so that it was a little more reverse engineered. When a woman gets raped to death and cut into pieces, it requires a broader approach, IMO.

The first thing I had to establish was that no one in the story was innocent, including the woman, and to basically point out that a central theme of Judges that is often repeated throughout is that "In those days Israel had no King and everyone did what was right in their own eyes". From this I conjectured that that base nature of humanity when it is apart from following God and absent an earthly king, is essentially that of an animal.

505 One angle of the "Legal Tender" conundrum, is one theory that would be fun to try.

It goes like this, if you owe a debt to some entity, and they make a stink about Cash, and refuse the cash (and say, demand a check, have them sign a statement. The theory is, that debt is no longer collectable. They refused payment, after all. But, it has to be a debt, as previously described. That's why governments will always take cash, in more ways than one.

Them: You owe us $500
Me: OK, here's $500

That seems to be the case. The spike protein generated by these vaccines, or pieces of it, leaks into the blood stream, and something about it is pathogenic to endothelial cells. And I read something that the genesis of that is likely the antibodies to it.

Some individuals are very sensitive to that, and you get the heart and clotting reactions.

515 Publius and Tater, this is an informative site. Lower right graph shows that the vaccines might lower severe disease probability. It could also be showing that the vaccinated tend to be higher socio-economic, so they start in better health than the unvaxxed in Singapore. Or that they are treated in higher quality medical settings. I would prefer that it showed some vaccine efficacy, but we really will not know for a while. And as I said before, if vaccine production was as easy as Pfizer and Moderna, we would have many more vaccines to more dangerous pathogens than SARS-Cov2

There are only two reasons for this. First it must have had nothing to do with 1/6, as we all know that was as violent and rough as a normal concert. These cops are well trained and I doubt they'll start killing themselves over the weak crap that happened at the capitol.

Second is that they committed that 6 gun shots to the back suicide that tends to happen when you cross a democrat narrative.

519 The bar lets you run up a tab? Sure, they'll take cash, OR, you will know in no uncertain terms that is not OK. But it would be "unenforceable" or however lawyers put it. They would have to take cash at the end of the night, but as a practical matter they might say "don't come back again".

There's a lot of things a business can do, but that doesn't mean they should. Accepting any and all forms of payment may make sense, or maybe not. Contractors like cash, I've found. It is useful to sometimes ask (at the right time) "Hey would you discount a little bit for cash?" I remember the guy who replaced the front door in the winter, he built a little tent around everything to keep out the cold, took a while to do everything. If I did it, it would look like an Abstract Art. Hanging a door is "easy" but it has to fit right. He smiled really gratefully when I started peeling off fresh, crisp new Benjamins into his hand.

I think Brehon law typically conformed to Christian canonical law, yes?

In ancient Israel during the time of Judges, Israel still was filled with heathen religions and Jews that were not conforming with Mosaic law, as the Sanhedrin had yet to be established.

During that time, the Lord raised up regional judges to deliver the Jews from various oppression, though the faithfulness of the Jews was always short-lived, as it is in our day with all Christians and Jews. Our sin nature is strong.

529 Cash is a pain in the ass, from their perspective, because it is. Have to have someone you can trust to take it, count it, keep track of it, and take it to the bank. And then other people try to steal it to. "Shrinkage" is what employees steal. At a bar, it might be a beer, booze, packs of smokes, cash.

Going to a card system cuts out a lot of potential issues for everyone. Theft, robbery, pilferage

One thing I've noticed generally, just when society has reached a literal digital Panopticon level, tracking, face recognition, the works - the "authorities" have decided to say "Fuck it, we're not going to prosecute crime anymore".

This is really curious. Because finally - after 5000 years or so, they can catch just about anybody, doing anything, if they really want to. It isn't a question whether we live in a police state, the question is why is there so much crime?

543 I would suspect that many people who suffer extreme side effects from the vaccine would have suffered extreme effects from the disease as well, because they would be dealing with an infection on top of the anti-spike antibodies. Of course nobody seems to be trying to find molecular markers to try to figure out a way to screen people so we could predict who that might be. I also am comfortable wearing masks, and think a good quality, well fitting mask made of two different types of fabric can help. I travel, shop, interact face to face, etc, and, have observed this phenomenon in every airport and city. Proper masks might be as good as the vaccines. https://tinyurl.com/4sneyemx

544 People were talking about faulty or out of calibration "Gaydar", I have that too, and maybe a bit of naivety. I found a couple guys building a deck walking around a neighborhood and started using them. Problem was he was a one man operation. That works for some things, not for others. Sometimes, you want to get shit done right away. Big jobs. Anyhoo, It was handy to have somebody who could get stuff done beyond my skill level. Then one day, he just kinda dropped off the radar. Couldn't figure it out. Well I dug around on the intertubz .. and found an obituary notice. THEN, I found an arrest record. Lascivious Acts With a Child, complete with mugshot, from a few years prior. I'm guessing Suicide. I would have never in a million years hired that guy had I known about that. And he didn't seem like a bad dude. So much for "judging people's character". Yeesh.

Okay, I think (*think*) I've got it why there's no memory T-cell response evident from these spike-only protein.

As from what I was going on about above, coronaviruses hide their spikes from the immune system initial recognition. Your immune system will only see the N-proteins.

So, once the spike antibodies have waned to nil, along comes the Covid-19 virus which gets into your nose and respiratory tract and starts going at it.

Your immune system doesn't see it, even if there is spike memory. Your immune system will start seeing spikes only when enough of the virus is now in your system, after replicating like crazy.

I now see the "cheap trick" that poster was talking about.

548 Eric, the problem with a new virus, there isn't any T cell memory or herd immunity. And this is almost certainly an engineered virus, some kind of jiggery-pokery gain of function variant, and almost certainly something about specifically they aren't telling us. I don't know what it is, but I'm betting it isn't very comforting.

By the time the vaccine was rolled out, millions of people had already been exposed and/or contracted Covid and recovered. It may be a vaccine is contraindicated for them? I dunno, not an epidemiologist. Most of the people screeching about this aren't either. And the head guy in this dumpster fire was up to his eyeballs in it. Pretty Wacky anyway ya slice it.

We have a Winnebago and they have been the best and surprisingly most honest of the manufacturers. Everyone has their horror stories about their rig, but we have had nothing but great service from them. That being said, we only go to the factory for any work that needs to be done. Being fulltime we can do that. Stay away from Camping World, far away. Lazy Days in Florida and Arizona has great customer support. Stay away from any Thor product. They are junk. Do your research and find what's right for you. If the dealership feels hinky, get out.

It was a valiant effort, but I think we found long ago that a single surface protein isn't enough to build a good vaccine around. I think one of the Chinese vaccines is supposedly made of killed virus. Of course we have zero way of knowing if it works, if the side effects are awful, and I would definitely not inject anything made in China into my body. Honestly, I am sad that the covid vaccine appears to be a dud. I would love to be proved wrong. I have hope that the one being made at U of Iowa will work.

576 Dr. Bossch's conclusion:

"From the very beginning of the mass vaccination program, it should have been clear that because of the intrinsic limitations of S-based Covid-19 vaccines and their deployment in mass vaccination campaigns in the midst of a pandemic, herd immunity was simply the last thing this mass vaccination program could possibly achieve and that moving this program forward would fulfill all the conditions for driving S-directed viral immune escape to eventually result in full resistance of Sars-CoV-2 to the Covid-19 vaccines. Boosting vaccinal Abs with 2nd generation vaccines is not going to solve the issue of immune escape, even if the immunization with 'updated' vaccines would be repeated by 6-month intervals. This is because 2nd generation vaccines will primarily recall S-specific Abs elicited by the first generation vaccines (due to 'antigenic sin' and not be effective against recombinations of Sars-CoV-2 variants, which are highly likely to occur as a result of co-infection, especially in the most vulnerable..."

582 Well that makes perfect sense, then. /s

The experts in the US deny that herd immunity can be conferred by naturally acquiring Covid-19 and recovering from it. In fact, they retroactively changed the textbook definition of herd immunity to imply it can only be achieved through immunization. That's not "conspiracy theory", they really did that. Is that misinformation or disinformation? Were they wrong before, or are they wrong now?

So then, this other guy says that the vaccine is incapable of achieving herd immunity? Maybe, but then, what is the point? Increased survivability for some. Maybe serious side effects for many, who are at statistically zero chance of getting hospitalized.

She had been hospitalized for almost the entire time, and finally contracted double pneumonia before dying.

She was morbidly obese and diabetic and had refused the vaccine; a mistake on her part if you ask me.

Nice you had some company!

Haven't had a chance to see Hailey much of late. But she's doing great and is oh so sweet.

All the other stuff is hard to cope with but Ixm managing so far. It's definitely wearing on me. Trying to find those moments of peace and relaxation. Few and far between!

621 You got it! Careful, it's hot! I found a 30 cup aluminum percolator in the attic I'm cleaning out. It works pretty good. Haven't perc'd coffee in years. Still works, how do it know whwn it's done? It does its thing, and then the light comes on, it says "SERVE". Gotta love good ole U.S.A. Stuff

I've got one of those percolator's somewhere around here. We packed it up in stuff we saved from grandma and grandpa's place when we started the cottage build up north. I should dig it out!

630 Those are waaay better than the tailor mades. English muffins are sposed to be well crispy and brown. They don't do that. Then they need dairy butter. They don't do that. They need cheese that tastes like cheese, sausage that .. well you get the idea. I always make 2, cuz 1 just ain't enough.

632 Yeah, I would say it definitely makes an acceptable cup of Joe. But I'm not a hipster. It probably does cook it if left on, I just unplug it, and maybe nuke a cup to re-heat later in the day. It gets that "church basement" whang to it if left on all day. As long as it is strong black coffee, no complaints

636 first night, i clean out the pot, load it with water, and run it through, sans coffee... as you might imagine, the tap water on base wasn't for shit, but tolerable once you burned off the chlorine and all the other chemicals in it.

638 let it cool, then, around 0430/0500, i brewed up the last of the ground coffee they had. we taste tested it, decided it was weak as shit, so i poured it through the grinds until we thought it met Infantry standards for coffee.

641 left for Navy breakfast (damn but they eat good, in my experience), and came back, just in time to see a day shift REMF dumping said coffee pot on the back step. many heated words were exchanged, at several levels, but i had a commissioned witness that swore he watched me make the coffee as directed.

did i mention there was no more coffee to make a new pot until the Exchange opened several hours later? (late 80's: no Starfucks, or anything like it on base) short man was less than pleased, but could only get mad at his collection of ass kissers.

643 next night, everyone on day shift was aware fresh coffee would be waiting for them, so no more dumping. i did the burn off/cool down/pour through routine, with taste testing, for the next two nights.

644 Hm, it does have an "aluminumy" taste to it. Making it stronger does help, I suppose. Crappy coffee is one thing, WEAK crappy coffee, well ... That'll never do.

I added a bit of salt before brewing and that seems to offset that "dry" metallic thing goin' on. It does make a crapload of coffee all at once pretty quick, so there's that. It starts perkin' almost immediately when plugged in, which I do not understand how that works. I guess the small depression in the stem area is the only boiling area. Then a relay or cutout eventually determines it is "done"? The lights dimmed for a second when I plugged it in, LOL. Another peak load power plant comes online when I run this baby! Yeah!

Maybe there's a Modern Marvels on this.

651 KP story: got assigned, and, since the HC didn't like me, got put on pot walloping detail, out in the middle of a burned over cow pasture, right next to an active tank trail. (think dusty, windy, nasty airborne particles and you're there) and a tad warm too.

658 I started drinking coffee in the .mil come to think of it. Never really saw the need before. I did then! I picked up a small universal voltage coffee maker that I used for quite a while, and would scam on generator voltage at the TOC once in a while. Made a pretty good cup. Then I bought an MSR X-GK stove and would use our discarded JP8 fuel samples for unlimited supply. That worked pretty good. Now there's an overly complicated, Rube Goldberg contraption affair. But it does crank out the heat to make coffee.

I will say supplying higher ranks and assorted grumpy sorts with fresh coffee in the field isn't unwelcome.

668 maybe? KP story: cooks brought over the large (4x2x?) pan they had just baked a shit load of chicken pieces in, and dropped it in the dirt for us to get to, eventually. wind blows, wheeled and tracked vehicles go by, and dust, to include macerated cow flops, blows everywhere.

HC comes along, tries to mock me, then comments about the pan with all the chicken bits in it: "they should have made gravy with this" he said, after he had pulled a small piece off the side of the pan, chewed the good parts off, and then threw it back in.

670 That entire article on the $15 dollar minimum wage is bogus for a couple reasons.

One is that the cities they cite as the best don't have a minimum wage that is that high. That has a bearing on the costs and if $15 was the min wage then I'd bet that the costs there would rise.

Second they use a base wage of 2400 BEFORE FEDERAL TAXES. They did this mainly to hide the amount that the fed would steal when all is said and done. Which is blatantly imbalanced.

They should be honest and check what things cost more and why and I would bet that the taxes taken out by Federal, State and local are some of the main reasons. Other than inflation and guess who's causing that?

671 As far as the "Askhole" I'd be more concerned about whether the advice they didn't take was any good. Cause maybe you're one of those people that folks ask about stuff just so they know what the bad way to think about it is.

If you can't figure out who the mark is, it's you. Twist that around; if you can't figure out who the asshole is, it's probably you.
