This <---

Since the virus deniers are still out in full force today - I am posting this. It is consistent with the videos I saw out of China and Iran. They had to restrain these people because they kept trying to claw their ventilators out of their faces. Truly like they were downing..

It is really sad to see EVERYTHING is playing out exactly the same as in China. The whole thing is completely surreal to me. And to see people politicizing this to serve their purpose is evil and wrong.

Just look at the hospital rate in Santa Clara County! They have consistently been a day behind in their reporting. So, below is current. The hospital rate is currently 35%.

    I promise that if DJ Trump sends me a cool grand of my own tax money back ...

    ... that I will blow every last dime of it on ammo, gun parts, and gunsmithing supplies.

    Normally I'd spend it all on hookers and blow like any decent pantomime villain, but have you seen the latest?

    Drive-thru peep shows in Vegas.


  2. This was a good read. "Good" might not be the best word...

    In two weeks there won't be any questions here.

    I'm hunkered down & it's been a few days since I went anywhere.

    Good luck!

  3. My home county has its first 3 confirmed cases as of yesterday. The county where I work has one of the best functioning testing centers in the state.

    I stayed home from work the rest of last week, just to be safe, but I'm fine. Back to work Monday.

    Adrenochrome is an oxidized form of epinephrine, and you can produce epinephrine from norepinephrine, which can be made from phenylalanine.

    I'm not familiar with the commercial synthesis of it, but I think it involves silver nitrate as the catalyst to cleave off parts of phenylalanine so it can be further react without requiring enzymes, and also at a later point there's a reaction with silver oxide to produce adrenochrome if you're not going to stop with norepinephrine.

    There's also a "cell farming" way to do this where you could produce certain precursors that are more easily reacted upon, and if that's how it's being done, that would be an innovation so proprietary that the details wouldn't be very well known.

    But yes, I'm familiar with the stories you're talking about, although I think these days things have progressed to where those are (hopefully) anecdotal historical things.

    I'd like to think this is being done without awful people being psychopathic butchers, in other words ...

    And yet those stories persist.

    The dumping of silver into the markets for cash isn't an accident?

    Well ... that'd be some false flag type shit right there, wouldn't it?


    No, literally, who knew?

    Forget "The Children of Men", this is sounding more like "V for Vendetta" ...

    I need to find a way to upload an ADSB air traffic snapshot for you ...

    Almost ten percent of all air traffic worldwide at around 9 AM on Monday was over Florida.

    Rich New Yorkers are fleeing New York for Florida hot-beds.

    Whereas there's almost no traffic at all over Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan during the evenings now.

    Meanwhile in Switzerland ...

    "Plus de 8800 cas et 90 morts en Suisse à cause du coronavirus"

    "La Suisse déplore désormais 90 morts à cause du coronavirus, contre 70 la veille, a annoncé l'Office fédéral de la santé publique mardi. Le nombre de cas atteint 8836, contre 8060 lundi. Des chiffres qui peuvent diverger avec les annonces des cantons."

    Almost 800 new cases since Monday, raising the number by almost 10%.

    That's considerably better than a lot of other places.

    Switzerland also has the "travelers abroad" problem of people stuck in other countries, mostly people who thought they could pop out for a vacation or a business trip and got stuck when the airlines rolled up passenger operations.

    Taiwan's still doing pretty well -- their total number of cases for a country of roughly 24 million people is around what Miami-Dade in Florida has at this point.

    But the bright and shining beacons of hope?

    The places I want to move to in the US and abroad have zero cases even now.

    The health minister of the country I want to move to is actually recommending most of the right vitamins and for people to eat well to keep their immune systems strong!

    It's as if they actually run the government on behalf of the people there!

    And of course I can't visit there now because they've sensibly closed the border, but what else would you expect?

    It's not as if they have huge amounts of resources to consume just for this.

    Ah, Snarkie ...

    I think my comment with all of the ADSB image links got held up for moderation because there were so many links in it.

    Let's just see if it hates me for how many I had in that one comment.


    The teal-colored box at the upper right shows the number of planes being tracked in the image followed by the total number of planes worldwide.

    What's the end game of these Democrats?

    That they want The Prez to declare martial law?

    That's not going to end well for them ...

    The Prez has his own helicopter, does he not? :-)

    Oh, it turns out there's a gallery feature ...

    All of the air traffic snapshots:

    I've never used this hosting service before.

    The names are messed up because when I renamed them, I started to take account of the time differences, but missed a few because of Eastern time zone differences.

    Also, hello from South Carolina. :-)

    There are reasons for the Netherlands having so much air traffic: the Dutch PM said that he's looking for "herd immunity", so it's mostly business as usual.

    If you're able to fly anywhere right now, chances are pretty good it's on KLM.

    Now if KLM would fix their asinine baggage requirements, allowing two 23 kilo bags in cargo again plus at least one 23 kilo carry-on, we'd go back to flying with them again during less strained times ...

    And my primary argument that shall be marshaled against giving any of the more greedy airlines a bailout: we've paid these airlines tens of thousands of dollars in baggage charges just so we can fly with our equipment.

    So I don't want to be hearing some poor-mouthing coming out of these airlines.

    Instead, maybe some of these airlines can finally die with perhaps a bit more dignity than Ansett did right around 9/11 ...

    Baby - I don't moderate this site. The only time I remove posts are for spam and when I just point people to my twitter.

    The air traffic though. There is so little of it that when I do see a plane I'm like - oh yeah. Planes overhead are just omnipresent.
