California is pretty interesting today.

We have been in a drought so long - I thought we has zero chance of flooding this year. We had so much excess capacity for all the water to go

Yet.... here we are. Palo Alto is on the verge of flooding or already is. Even on high ground all the up by the Stanford shopping center. Which I have never seen in my entire life. 

Two freeways are shut down in both directions due to flooding.  101 might be flooding in multiple places. Now shut down infinitely. East Palo Alto (where I used to live by the freeway, the creek is overtopping)

It seems like the rain is melting all the snow we just had, so the Sierra is flooding. 
Capitola is flooding. Which I have seen before.

We gonna b on the news ya'll!

There is no Happy New year.

We get to live 2020 all over again. Bravo for everyone! People's selfishness, laziness and vanity have brought us to this point. People are going to get the world they so militantly fought for and deserve. 

All this year people screamed about how horrible China was and how they should open up.  ( I do not support the way China handled SARS-2 AT ALL, but we all should have prayed that they would succeed. THAT ANYTHING WOULD SUCCEED. Instead people rubbed their hands with glee that they did not) 

You got your wish and now China is filled with nothing but death. The very thing people like me tried to tell others would happen.  AND MORE TROUBLING - the rumor out of China is the new strain they have causes white lung. Chinese doctors are now trying to warn us. Which makes me laugh because they should save their breath. Americans are THICK. I'm sure everyone reading my blog has a PH'd in GoogleU. So... just put that search into twitter, google or whatever. 

There are controlled lockdowns and uncontrolled lockdowns, and you are going to get the second one. I can assure you - the first one is much better. Now you are not getting shit out of China. It has completely collapsed. China is just videos of caskets, mortuary lines and streets filled with packages because everyone is too sick to work. Good job everyone!

I have actually been preparing like it is 2020. If you haven't..... ?

Additionally - I doubt very highly that the Government is going to print 40% of the entire mount of money ever printed like they did in 2020.  What should have happened in 2020 has only been delayed. You are going to get those consequences this year. 

I really do not understand why people think collapsing the healthcare system is a fun thing to do. I'm not sure what result they think they are going to get. But it's literally  about the same result as Antifa burning down cities. Those cities rarely recover... and I wonder if this is the eventual goal.

The thing that has fascinated me the most is how people are treating others like slaves.  And everyone just seems okay with it. People don't care if manufacturing or restaurant workers die or get sick, as long as people don't have to change their behavior in any way. I mean, you can't complain about the results of all the things people refused to do. Eventually all those slaves will be too sick or dead to work.

I'm sure many countries weren't sure if they could rid themselves of SARS-1. But they did. It's only lack of imagination and laziness that most people think we can not eventually one day get rid of SARS-2. Which is now becoming SARS-3 because it has been allowed to enter so many people to become stronger.

So... if I continue this blog I am going to be shittier than I have ever been. Mark my words because people need an ass kicking.

And lastly... the thing I wish people understood is - getting Covid is not the way forward. Every human this virus enters gives it a chance to mutate. Which is NOT the thing you want for a lab grown virus which has already been accelerated by gain of function. People are just making this virus stronger. It is learning FROM YOUR body how to infect people better.

This guy wins Christmas.

Thursday, December 22, 2022

All the things she said running through my head.

I was going to wait until after the Holiday to post this, but what is going on just makes me so intensely sad. I feel like how those guys must have felt when they knew credit default swaps were going to blow up the world. I am begging you to protect yourselves. PLEASE.

Many people talk about how our education system has failed us in Math and Science, but after the past three years I've come to realize, the area they really failed us is in health education. The literacy of Americans on basic health is astonishing. And this is coming from a high school drop out!

I say this because just yesterday a girl I know was telling me that at her bowling league some guy had a heart attack four lanes down. They worked on him for 45 minutes. When I told her that SARS-2 inflames the heart, she replied - why has no one said this to me before? Then goes on to say she didn't believe that COVID was leaked from a lab. She thought it came from Nuclear fall out. Despite the injury from such an event would damage a body in a completely different way. But she said no one was going to talk her out of it. I left things there because really... what can you say at that point?

For months, and years now I guess, I have been completely perplexed as to why Governments around the world continue to refuse to tell people the real consequences of SARS-2. I believe if they told people the virus causes hyper-coagulation of blood, people would voluntarily reduce their exposure. And, I am genuinely not being mean here... if they could even figure out what the word hyper-coagulation means. I've come to realize that people are afraid of big words.  

For uncountable months I have been trying to figure out why people, instead of using caution, they feel they need to be infected. Which is of ZERO benefit! There has NEVER been herd immunity to a corona virus. NEVER. 

I feel that it is because of a widespread misinterpretation the public has due to the book Dirt is Good: The Advantage of Germs for Your Child's Developing Immune System. We all remember when that book came around telling us to let your kids play in the dirt. Which talks about the possible benefit dirt has on allergic response. NOT VIRAL response. Most viruses don't live in the ground. And if they do, it's often the REALLY bad ones.

I will admit right up front that I have not read the book, but I have gone through many of the comments and other articles citing this book. Most of which are obviously geared around the fear in the 80's and 90's that kids were watching too much TV. The excerpts I HAVE read - obviously the author is talking about bacteria. NOT VIRUSES! Yet people's literacy is so limited, they are conflating the two. And even if you tried to tell them the difference their eyes would glaze over and they would militantly tell you how stupid you were.. That is our real society right now. Now the blind are leading the blind and walking people right off a cliff. I however have been telling people for at least a year or more that this was a vascular disease. I've said it so many times.

To figure out the difference READ HERE.

"Viruses need to enter a living cell (such as a human cell) to be able to reproduce, and once inside they take over all of the cellular machinery and force the cell to make new virus. "

I believe this book is the reason people are not taking more care. Inaccurately believing that they need to be infected to be protected. Whatever the reason, PLEASE read this and whatever crazy theory you have - stop it. This is what is really happening. I don't normally snarf so much of an article. But this guy saves me a lot of work.

"2. COVID is a disease of the vascular system.

It inflames the lining of blood vessels in both the young and old and can cause blood clotting.

This explains why COVID infection can leave in its wake a variety of cardiovascular injuries including stroke, restricted blood flow, inflamed hearts, and blood clots in the heart and lungs.

It also explains why COVID in different people affects different organs. The infection travels by the vascular system to the brain, the gut, the heart, the lymph glands and the kidneys. It was never, as hubris has alleged, a cold or “just the flu.”"

4. Having COVID is associated with a 66 per cent higher risk of developing new onset diabetes.

So says an article in the science journal Nature.

5. COVID damages the heart and can cause sudden strokes in young people.

Prior to the pandemic excess deaths from strokes were on the decline in the United States. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now reports that excess deaths from strokes rose 23 to 34 per cent among young people between the ages of 25 and 44, and rose 13 to 18 percent in older age groups since the beginning of the pandemic.

6. Each and every COVID infection exerts a toll on your health.

image atom The Pandemic Speaks READ MORE Reinfections increase the risk of developing diabetes, kidney disease, organ failure and mental health problems, according to research published in Nature Medicine. The authors found that people with COVID reinfections were twice as likely to die and three times more likely to be hospitalized than those with no history of previous COVID infection.

Moreover people with repeat infections were three and a half times more likely to develop lung problems, three times more likely to suffer heart conditions and 1.6 times more likely to experience brain conditions than patients who had been infected with the virus once.

As one recent Canadian study noted, “Because each new SARS-CoV-2 infection carries some risk of long COVID, everyone remains at risk for developing the condition.”

image atom We Didn’t Grieve the Pandemic. Now We’re Stuck Fighting READ MORE 7. Immune dysfunctions can persist for up to eight months after a COVID infection.

Australian researchers found “an ongoing, sustained inflammatory response following even mild-to-moderate acute COVID-19.”

8. Women are at greatest risk for long COVID.

We don’t know why, but we don’t improve things by ignoring the evidence.

9. Vaccines alone won’t deliver us.

When public health officials now speak to us, they invariably hammer home one, simple message. Get vaccinated. No argument here. Yes, do get vaccinated. Still, we should keep some important caveats in mind.

Although vaccines have significantly reduced deaths and hospitalizations their effectiveness is waning as the virus that causes COVID evolves. And by not engaging in other public health measures, we make it easier to spread and therefore evolve.

And consider this flaw built into the current messaging strategy. Just why would the public seek out booster shots (which really do work for a short period of time), when the authorities pretend the worst is over and that no other interventions are necessary?

There is no single technological fix that will dispatch COVID let alone end the pandemic.

Maybe there is a faint pulse.

I have been spending a lot of time lately trying to figure out how much of my time I want to share with the world. In other words, I've been trying to figure out if I want to continue blogging at all. I do this every year honestly, but after the last three years - blogging has become way more than a burden. It has been really nice not having a running narrative in my head of trying to form posts or figure out how I am going to explain technology most people have never seen. 

Unlike other sites who make money from their posts - I blog to share the really cool things I see and provide a perspective that I don't think other sites are giving. Often times because their narrative is whatever, whoever, is paying them for at the time. 

I don't make money. Blogging costs me money, and if my audience is not interested in what I say, I have absolutely ZERO incentive to do so. 

I have been on the opposite side of many topics. During the housing crisis people said houses would never be worth the prices people paid for them again. I spent years saying how rediculous and untrue that was. I supported Trump before anyone did. When literally you couldn't admit it without fear of real retribution. I was at the San Jose rally where people threw eggs at Trump supporters. But this panemic has exausted me in a way that I can't even describe. 

Basically every day I wonder what the hell happened to this country. I am an atheist, and you will never find an instance of me shitting on any religion, but I am here today asking what the hell happened to Christians? I guess they got tired of pretending to love their neighbor. 

Most days lately, the narrative that runs through my head is from the Dalai Lama. "OUR PRIME PURPOSE IN THIS LIFE IS TO HELP OTHERS. AND IF YOU CAN'T HELP THEM, AT LEAST DON'T HURT THEM." 

As for this blog? They are letting me into CES this year.... so, I'm saying there is a chance.
