Things are not what they seem. The truth is not out there.
Our concept of the market for this doesn’t have to be limited to the clueless. There’s research out there that shows that placebos work even when people know they are placebos.
Brad isn’t thinking about having the baby. Brad is thinking about making the baby.
Those coronaviruses are to be depicted as coming out of unmasked, undistanced people’s mouths, not just randomly freely floating in the air.
Read up on New Zealand. It’s populated by human beings and run by democratically elected officials. Our cumulative deaths per million equals 823. Their cumulative deaths per million equals 5. And before you squawk at me about, “But it’s an island!” kindly remember that 99% of our problem originates within our own borders. There is nothing whatsoever forordained or inherent about our failure to respond to this. It starts at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. and works its way down from there. We could have done better with, we should have done better, we still have a chance to do better, and we had bloody well better do it before another quarter of a million people die needlessly.
Remember how conservatives used to bleed and rant about personal responsibility and accepting the consequences of your own actions? Where is all that cant now? Isn’t it about time these crybabies grew a spine and started taking responsibility for themselves and accepting the consequences of their own actions by doing what’s necessary to avoid spewing virus all over other people?
“Freedom! Freedom!” Yeah, right. Freedom as imagined by a six-year-old: do whatever you want regardless of the harm to others without facing any accountability of your own. Adults know that freedom implies responsibility. Conservatives clearly have trouble with that idea—just like six-year-olds.
Hate to mention it, but the coronaviruses would not be floating in on the breeze. They would be floating out of the pirates’ noses and mouths when they exhale.
Compared to the energy output of the entire universe, all the energy output of an entire galaxy is a drop in the bucket. Furthermore, the only energy transformed in the creation of a human is the energy required for one sperm cell to enter one egg cell and the energy required for the processes that then go on inside. All the rest of that one horsepower you’re talking about is purely ancillary and is in fact unnecessary, as artificial insemination proves.
“1984” is fiction. Just a reminder.
Wildebeests come in herds, not packs. Just saying.
Yeah, you could describe losing the vast majority of your people and all of your land to invaders and their diseases and their treachery a “change”. It’s amazingly stupid, it’s callously inhumane, it whitewashes the history to a faretheewell, but you can do it. You don’t look good doing it, but that doesn’t have to stop you.
And the difference between then and now is, we’re dealing with a fake king, not a real one, and there’s no New World to run off to.
