Someone please tell bushione to go home and stop annoying people with his ads (or whatever they are).

If your point is to waste time, then have at it, but it's painful.

Off-Topic / Testing your memory banks for an obscure item from the past.

Does anyone remember the Magic Eye puzzles? My sig O brought some of them home and I'm having fun with them again. He still can't figure it out, but I'm trying to show him how to do it.

You probably have no idea what I'm talking about, but they are really intriguing because your eyes have to stay out of focus to see the shapes inside the puzzle that are not immediately evident.

Don't strain your brain if you've never seen them. It was a while ago that they were popular. I'm just wondering if anyone else remembers them.

Jul 6, 2021"The long-term side effects of COVID infection are a major concern," Goepfert said. "Up to 10 percent of people who have COVID experience side effects such as difficulty thinking, pain, tiredness, loss of taste and depression. We don't know why that is, how long these symptoms will last or if there are effective ways to treat them.

Oct 22, 2021COVID-19 can make blood cells more likely to clump up and form clots. While large clots can cause heart attacks and strokes, much of the heart damage caused by COVID-19 is believed to stem from very small clots that block tiny blood vessels (capillaries) in the heart muscle.

As an added joyful note, I heard on the radio this morning that the blood clots can become so big that they have to be pulled out manually. Don't shoot the messenger, but this sounds unbelievably scary.

Debate & Discuss / This just in from Epoch Times re: COVID vaccine -- long read
« on: June 06, 2022, 03:21:44 pm »Message ID: 1370064
Of course, draw your own conclusions. The Epoch Times was my source on this post:

Studies on COVID-19 vaccines have suggested links between Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD)—an incurable and fatal prion disease—and getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

A recent French pre-print on CJD and COVID-19 vaccination has suggested that the COVID-19 vaccine may have contributed to the emergence of a new type of sporadic CJD disease that is a lot more aggressive and rapid in disease progression as compared to the traditional CJD.

CJD is a rare disease caused by an abnormal protein in the brain called a prion.

Prions naturally occur in the brain and are usually harmless, but when they become diseased or misfolded, they will affect nearby prions to also become misshapen, leading to deterioration of brain tissue and death.

The disease is incurable as once one prion becomes infected, it will continue to propagate to other prions with no treatment capable of stopping its progress.


The majority of people with CJD have sporadic CJD; they become infected for no apparent reason. However, small subsets of people are diagnosed due to inheritance.

Sporadic CJD, though occurring at random, has been linked to consumption of meat that has been infected with diseased prions, such as affecting individuals that ingest beef from a cow that has been infected.

Though the Omicron variant of COVID-19 does not carry a prion region in its spike protein, the first Wuhan COVID-19 variant has a prion region on its spike protein. A U.S. study indicates that the prion area is able to interact with human cells.

Therefore, when the Wuhan variant’s spike protein gene information was made into a vaccine as part of the mRNA and adenovirus DNA vaccines, the prion region was also incorporated.

As part of the natural cellular process, once the mRNA is incorporated into the cells, the cell will turn the mRNA instructions into a COVID-19 spike protein, tricking the cells into believing that it has been infected so that they create an immunological memory against a component of the virus.

For the AstraZeneca vaccine, DNA of the spike protein is carried into the cell through an adenovirus vector, then into the nucleus where all human DNA is stored, from there the DNA is transcribed into mRNA and made into the spike protein.

Though major health organizations say the genetic material from vaccines will not be incorporated into human DNA, mRNA studies conducted on human cells in the labs have found mRNA can be changed into DNA and then incorporated into the human genome.

Unfortunately, the biological process of translating mRNA information into proteins is not perfect and immune to mistakes, and protein misfolding can occur.

A U.S. study has speculated that a misfolded spike protein could in turn create a misfolded prion region that may be able to interact with healthy prions to cause damage, leading to CJD disease.

A peer-reviewed study in Turkey (pdf) and the French preprint have identified sudden CJD cases appearing after getting the Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca vaccines, suggesting links between getting vaccinated and being infected.

The French study found an onset of symptoms within 11.38 days of being vaccinated while the case study in Turkey has found symptoms appearing 1 day after vaccination.

Previous studies of CJD in cannibal groups have indicated that CJD can remain dormant after infection for around 10 years or more. However, authors of the French study have found that the CJD cases observed after being vaccinated by COVID-19 are a lot more rapid in onset.

The study identified 26 cases across Europe and United States; 20 of the cases had already died by the time the study was written, with death occurring on average 4.76 months after being vaccinated.

The lead author of the study, Dr. Jean-Claude Perez informed The Epoch Times on June 6 through an email that all 26 cases have died.

“This confirms the radically different nature of this new form of CJD, whereas the classic form requires several decades,” wrote the researchers.

Debate & Discuss / How old is old now?
« on: June 06, 2022, 03:10:03 pm »Message ID: 1370063
There seem to be quite a few contradictory theories about age now.

Is 50 the new 40?

Is ageism a thing?

Do people discriminate on account of age in hiring and firing?

Do others judge your mental competency because of your age?

Do people seem to condescend to you on account of your age?

If I don't feel old, am I still old?

Why did I want to grow up so fast, and now that I'm older, I can't even remember what happened to all those years behind me?

My inquiring mind wants to know your thoughts.

BTW, not tellin' my age any time soon.  :-[ Some purists might consider me old, but they'd better not say so.  8)

Off-Topic / Chinch bugs
« on: May 25, 2022, 02:11:58 pm »Message ID: 1369813
Not a fan in general of bugs, but the chinch bug problem around here this year is untenable. Ooh, a big word. Look it up. I did. :-[

Anyway, I have to do a chinch bug roundup every night before going to bed and they appear all over the house the rest of the time. They're totally innocuous and don't seem to cause any problems, but it's just the idea of having so many of them invading your space.  :P BTW, I don't like mice scurrying around either, but we do catch and release outside with them and they're really tiny, but lightning fast.

I don't remember ever having an issue this huge with this particular creature. To totally defeat them, you're supposed to treat your lawn, but I can't afford to have that done.  ::) I'm just wondering if they're prevalent where you're living.  :dontknow: We live near a lake so that might be part of the problem. Not sure.

This is seriously my last attempt to get some posts in because of the pink and white crazy page that keeps popping up no matter where I want to navigate to on the website today.

I will try again tomorrow and assume that this is some sort of virus or Satanic possession of a website. After that, I will not hazard a guess. Too scary.

Everything I clicked on in Fusion Cash today was a bright pink and white list with these five categories:

    Paid Surveys
    Cashback Offers
    Mobile Apps
    Referral Earnings
    Daily Tasks

The page with the freaky pink list would not let you do anything. It was the epitome of wrongness.

Am I crazy or did this happen to anyone else today?  :confused1: :sweat: :-\ :-[

How do you feel about owning one? I'm becoming more interested in them since I've been watching videos featuring Elon Musk. He's so brilliant and caring; like Trump.

So as soon as I garner around 50 grand, I might consider getting one. And if you haven't gotten one by then, I'll let you know how it goes.  :highfive:

Addendum: I do wonder about running out of "electric" since it's slightly different from running out of gas.
