Quote I was in bed most of the day yesterday with a fever and every bone in my body ached. I still feel like I got hit by a truck but it's better than getting Covid. The fever is gone, now I'm just tired and my arm hurts. Ouch... the effect does seem to be highly variable between individuals. My second shot gave me a sore arm later that same day instead of the next day, and a feeling of being

IF the predicted 'economic boom' happens, then yes there will be risks of inflation. This happens with any economic boom. Remember 2008 before the crash? There was huge pressure on commodities because of worldwide demand for everything. The one that most affected ordinary consumers was plain old gas. It hit $4 a gallon and Americans finally switched to buying tiny little compact cars, and even mo

For many decades now, the most common measure of any animal's potential intelligence been a simple ratio of brain size to body size. But as with most things, when examined more closely, it's not so simple...

The level of tension all around is very high. People in the street are angry that the police who are supposed to protect the public are so often committing the violence themselves. And I'm sure many cops are now more afraid they will be attacked, and being on edge are more likely to over-react. It's difficult to see how this can be walked back. Biden is a 'nice guy' but not a terribly inspiring,

Quote I just heard that Chauvin is the 7th cop since 2005 to be convicted. In that time, the police have killed more than 15,000 people. You mean convicted of murder? Or convicted of murder 'under cover of law'? (Abusing their authority as a police officer.) There have surely been more police than seven convicted of some sort of misconduct in the past decade and a half. But it's true that

Got my second dose of Pfizer one week ago today. Next week I'm pretty safe, from the current generation of this virus... but the variants keep on popping up. I fully expect we will have more rounds of these vaccines within a year for something that will soon appear or has appeared and hasn't yet spread far enough to make news.

Tree stumps. Every rural or at least semi-rural yokel has a tree stump or two somewhere on their property. Because it's always cheaper to just cut a tree down to where it's safe than it is to completely remove the stump. :) And then, once they get full of lead, they are essentially toxic waste and not safe to remove anyway... :D

Quote All the Fox News bros who say they aren’t Infowars are in for a surprise if they ever grow a pair and look at the website. The content on Fox News and Infowars is virtually indistinguishable now. You do realize why that is now?

It has been known all along that the speed at which science on covid was being forced into practical use was a danger. It's not always the unknown that causes problems, sometimes it's merely the unlooked for. This is why medical treatments normally take so long to develop. Every attempt is made to consider all the implications and interactions of a new drug or treatment before actually using it.

Quote You’re brave. I’m at my limit of knowledge of Trump’s mind. How much is there to know, really? It's not that he's all that devious, because he's not. The problem is that he's uninhibited, with the wealth to demand whatever his random ID wishes think of, and just skilled enough at using cat's paws to get these things that he hasn't (yet) been directly implicated in the crimes needed to ge

That's a pretty in-depth psychological narrative. Have you been reading some sort of profile by a professional? Or is this sort of thing actually detailed in his niece's book? If so, she went into much more psychological analysis than I had realized from the book reviews.

They do have an over-reaction problem. But I can't believe they are all psychopathic. The violence problems would be much worse if that were so. This kid did have a gun, it was a real gun, he had just dropped it when some over-anxious cop shot him anyway. That's as likely to be bad training or simply PTSD as some sort of malice. Too many cops in large urban areas have that "bunker" ment

Not "just" -- the incident was on March 29th. They have just released the police bodycam video today. It's a bit more ambiguous than some other recent situations, too, because the kid really did have a handgun. Still, they fired very quickly when he had not shot at them or even threatened them.

It looks like the origin of the QAnon movement has finally been smoked out. One of the main suspects, 8chan/8kun operator Ron Watkins, stumbled when talking to documentary maker Cullen Hoback and essentially admitted he was Q, or at least the original Q. Since the fad started there have of course been many strange extensions and offshoots. But this is a story about Conspiracy World, not the re

There are NATO troops (including US troops) stationed in all three of the Baltic States. They are members of NATO now. Remember the NATO treaty -- an attack on one is an attack on all. Putin is an aggressive little twit, on the intelligence front, but not an idiot. Russia is not capable of fighting NATO. He might well move on Ukraine, but he's not going into the Baltic States.

Research is always ongoing in many fields of science. One of the most difficult of all fields may be about to yield a major new discovery...

Now, physicists say they have found possible signs of a fifth fundamental force of nature.

Given how intensely they have investigated Alzheimer's disease, I doubt it would be a parasite. It's difficult to imagine how they would miss a multicellular organism in such extensive study. But this thing in Canada might be a parasite. Some of them cause symptoms that are quite difficult to tell from other diseases and so won't be recognized if the right tests aren't done. I remember there is a

It's not unusual for children to be uncertain if they are right or left handed in their single-digit years. But I've never heard of such a mix of handedness. I wonder if this might be a new thing with kids in the digital era with so many different contexts/stimuli to deal with.

What has been puzzling me since Obama came into office at the crest of the "Great Recession" is why the Federal Government has not leveraged private investment that way it did in the Great Depression. There were huge programs to rebuild infrastructure then, too, and it was done by pulling in private investors who like the security of the bonds that financed the projects. We have had

Some of the comments on that video are hysterical. "This is better than my birthday, Christmas, and New Year's Eve all rolled up together. I have never enjoyed a downfall to this degree. Ever...lol."

Prion diseases have been out of the news for the last few years, but this is looking like something related to familiar problems of the past.
