I've been reading about how the RCMP had been consulting "experts" as to whether the cartoon on that sticker constituted ch*ld p*rn (they decided it did not, which surprised me as I assume that common sense has become extinct), but none of the reports showed the sticker. Now I've seen it, I have to say it is rather funny.
Alberta is in a mess these days, as our federal government is doing all it can to destroy the Albertan economy in the name of carbon-neutral virtue signalling. Some Albertan MPs have fought back with the so-called 'Buffalo Declaration' (before provincehood, AB and SK were often called 'Buffalo'), demanding some understanding from Trudeau of their circumstances, or else they will fight for separation/secession. And to cap that off, we have to wheel out the obligatory looney indigenous offense merchant:
This declaration is a clear display of ignorance and moreover a thoughtless claim of support to your inequalities. The buffalo are a sacred being to our ceremonies and our culture, and in no way should it be used to further a political gain. The audacity to select the very four-legged being that your ancestors attempted to wipe out in an effort to annihilate our existence, is an insult to our people.
Oh, Canada!

This morning an elderly ex-yakuza boss felt faint, while scooping grounds into his Mr. Coffee filter. He fell to the floor & was too weak to get back up. He lay there for two hours. At some point, he pissed himself. Finally he called a family member & we went to his apartment. I brought a hammer, to bash thru the chainlock on the door. Nothing broken, no pain, he claimed he hadn't fully blacked-out. He was just pale and weak. If there were other symptoms, he hid them-- fearing he'll lose his home & be sent to a nursing home. Much like-- a couple weeks ago-- when he set an egg carton on the stove, then put it in the fridge... resulting in smoke & flames & a firetruck. He claimed that fire was a complete mystery-- spontaneous combustion!-- not a sign he can't take care of himself. I agree with him. I think he should be allowed to fall down & wait for help as much as he wants. No nursing home until he breaks bones or can't stand-up in the 1st place. Then again, I'm not the daughter who has to look after him daily.

I didn't go to the hospital. He pissed himself again in the ambulance. I went home, walked the dog. Dog had a couple elderly falls of his own. Lost balance pooping & nearly sat in it. But the rest of dog's day was fine, loafing.

The daughter called in the afternoon & informed me that the hospital staff's slang for Coronavirus is "nineteen". "Swab him for 19". So far he's testing negative for everything. X-rays & MRI clear, too. Probably weakened by some infection.

Naw, it was the DNC. All hands on deck to stop the Bern. They must have calculated that Biden will pick up the Buttigieg votes.

Funny today. Biden was on Chris Wallace’s show and Wallace was asking him about all his foggy mistakes. Biden said it wasn’t a serious issue. Then Wallace invited him back and Biden said...I’d be glad to come back, Chuck.
Uh, it’s Chris.
Hilarious.

The Democrats' strategy at this point is to concede Trump's reelection, so long as Bernie isn't the nominee and drags down the entire ticket, losing the House and state elections, with his socialism cray-cray.

So it's rally around Joe -- despite his obvious senile dementia, despite his Hunter baggage, despite the fact that his platform is the political equivalent of decoupage.

Amy Klobuchar is the only one with a shot to beat Trump, but nobody thinks she can win the nomination, cuz everybody says she can't win the nomination. And now BLM / Bernie Bros are disrupting her events, because she had the audacity as a prosecutor to actually prosecute gangstas

That Joe is seen as the safe candidate is an indication of how endemic corruption is in the system. Hunter's Ukrainian ventures are likely the tip of the iceberg, at least according to Peter Schweizer's "Profiles in Corruption." Joe's family have been raking in the bucks throughout his career. At least Harris is out. Her record of corruption in office in California beggars belief. Looks like the Ukrainians are starting to move with criminal investigations into what went on in the Obama years. I hear rumours about the Ukraine having been turned into a vassal state with the US running the show through Biden. The expected gold rush by the politically connected was apparently much in evidence. CNN might have to invest in some bigger blinders if Joe were ever to become president.

A man beat a transgender woman for using the correct bathroom -- the women's. Now he's guilty of a hate crime


No, that's not a headline from The Friendly Atheist, it's CNN:
(CNN)A man who beat a transgender woman for using the women's restroom was found guilty of a hate crime.

Fred Constanza was convicted in an Oregon court for first-degree bias crime, second-degree assault and harassment for the August attack on Lauren Jackson, a transgender woman.

Jackson was visiting Agate State Beach Park near Newport, Oregon, on the day of the attack. She stopped to use the women's restroom -- and that's when Costanza walked over 100 yards across the park to confront her, multiple witnesses told Newport police.

Jackson said Constanza approached her, yelling something about her being a woman. She said nothing in response.
The punishment for hate crime in Oregon is a mandatory five-to-ten years.


I doubt Constanza was "yelling something about her being a woman", rather the opposite:

Amy Klobuchar has dropped out and will endorse Biden.

Too late, I already filled out my ballot.

It's gonna be a complete shit show no matter what, as Bloomie will run as an independent if Bernie is the nominee, and don't rule out Bernie running as an indy if he doesn't get the nomination.

These figures of Bloomberg allegedly jizzing hundreds of millions of dollars all over the metaphorical faces of ad agencies, in a cash bukkake, I just cannot comprehend. I simply can't see how it would be possible to spend that much on ads in a month or whatever. Really, how has he done it (if he indeed has done it)? And the ads are utter dogshit, just him stood in front of some bored looking people, reading some boring words while sounding very bored.

Just imagine him and Trump face to face in pre-election debates, like Deputy Dawg and Top Cat. Not a hope in fucking hell.

Sorry to hear about your trouble too. My dad is in a very similar boat. He's currently waiting to get further tests after a GP detected a mild aneurysm on his last check up. His diet has always made Trump's look healthy, so hopefully he takes it seriously.

SFAIK (and IANAD), he should look to reduce his blood pressure immediately for an aneurism, and without medications as yet, the best way to do that in the short term is lower salt (specifically sodium) intake.

Let’s see. Firstly 85% of your cholesterol is made by the liver, only 15% comes from diet. If you eat more cholesterol your liver makes less in compensation. Ie dietary cholesterol does not equate to blood cholesterol.

Secondly, cholesterol tests actually measure the level,of transporters of cholesterol. Of which there are two.

HDL carries excess cholesterol back to liver for reprocessing. This is considered good. HDL is “good cholesterol”.

Normal LDL (pattern A) carries fat and cholesterol to cells for burning/repair. Without it you die. So pattern A is also good.

However. LDL (pattern B) which has been impacted by glucose + genetic disposition becomes ‘fucked up’ (compacts into a dense version) and stops docking with cells. Instead it hangs about (raising cholesterol) until it embed in cell walls, causing inflammation. White blood cells counter attack and plaque is formed leading to heart attacks.

So high LDL either means lots of normal fat transportation OR lots of shit LDL floating around due to demention forcing the building more and more.

Its carbs and genes that fuck you. Not fat. And not “cholesterol”.

Best test. If HDL is high. If lipids are low and if blood sugar traces are normal then high LDL is fine as it’s probably pattern A.

Lesson over.

On a less “inflammatory” note.

Finally. The standard low carb canon says:

Simple carbs in general, and fructose in particular (due to how it’s metabolised), will increase LDL-B. Vegetable oil, high in omega 6, will raise your inflammation levels.

Combined you facilitate CVD.

Saturated fat will raise HDL and LDL-A, but these are not on the critical path to heart attack.

I am not a doctor. But this is what the “clever” articles seem to suggest.

See for example

Humans were never meant to consume over about 15 to 20 grams of sugar a day. With the modern western diet it's nearly impossible to get out of breakfast without consuming twice or thrice that. The indigenous people in my locale are plagued with obesity and diabetes, as are the majority of Americans (over half of Americans are pre-diabetic or worse). If you visit the local Walmart or Target or grocery store, the food sections are wall to wall Type II diabetes.

Lesson over.
Not quite. Size matters, after all. We all know that oil and water don't mix, so how to transport fat in an aqueous medium, ie blood? Bind the cholesterol to a protein that is hydrophilic, making a lipoprotein. The resulting combination molecules can be large (HDL), small (LDL) and tiny (VLDL). The small and tiny molecules are capable of worming their way into the gaps between endothelial cells that line blood vessels, whereas the large ones are too big to fit. This is why HDL is 'good' cholesterol - it won't clog arteries. It doesn't clean your pipes out, but the more cholesterol is transported as HDL means less being moved around as LDL or VLDL. HDL also has some small effects on vessel wall inflammation, and may inhibit LDL deposition.

On to statins. Much as we learn to become cynical about drug companies, and especially the push to use them for primary prevention (ie treating people who don't have cardiovascular disease with them on the grounds that it is better to prevent than cure), aided by expert panels of docs well compensated for their time and correct opinions by drug companies, these drugs have changed the medical world. Time was when your mid-thirties were the 'heart attack years' and many men died at a young age (œstrogen encourages HDL production over LDL, but women more than catch up after menopause). Between smoking reduction preventing the heart attacks, and statins radically changing the outlook after one has occurred, far, far less premature deaths from heart disease are occurring and consequently cancer is quickly overtaking heart disease as the leading mode of death - simply meaning we have to die of something, and more people are failing to die of heart disease and thus living long enough to get cancer at some later age. There's no doubt if we gave statins to everyone, we could nearly eradicate ischæmic heart disease, peripheral vascular disease and a lot of strokes (not the untreated hypertensive ones, or the berry aneurysms). But we recoil from universal drugging, and also like to deny the manufacturers such obscene profits even if we have to die to do it. It's also true that a small minority of people can't take statins as they get rhabdomyolysis (can be fatal), abnormal liver function (probably not very harmful) and muscle pains (annoying but not dangerous as long as no rhabdomyolysis occurs) - hence the need for regular CPK and LFT testing to identify such patients. We already routinely put diabetics onto statins even if they have no vascular disease, as their risk is high enough that this is justified. Statins primarily lower LDL, and sometimes raise HDL, sometimes not. Getting your LDL as low as possible not only halts deposition of crud in artery walls, it can reverse it, which is remarkable. They can clean your pipes.

In all of this, we have not addressed triglycerides, which are another form of fat in the bloodstream. Type IV hyperlipidæmia is purely a hypertriglyceridæmia, and kills quickly in its serious inherited form. Remember elevated triglycerides are one of the three legs of the 'metabolic syndrome' and thus a problem for nearly all type 2 diabetics. Drug treatments to lower them are not very effective, with statins, fibrates and niacin used, but not as effective as weight loss, exercise and glycæmic control.

Here endeth the lesson, and sorry for the diphthongs. I did learn the simplified norte americano spelling, but am developing curmudgeonly tendencies in my old age.

I'm keeping things simple. I didn't eat that badly before, but apparently not well enough. One of the side effects of immunotherapy is fatigue due to anaemia (the drug lowers H&H quite significantly) so one tends to become sedentary. I was also on oral steroids for an autoimmune retinal disorder which made me eat like Godzilla.

My physio (for surgical scarring and lymphedema management) has helped a great deal, especially as any kind of strength training exhausts me in no time. But I can do lots of moderate cardio. I want to try and manage without statins if possible. Will see what the doc says next week. Here's me numbers, for those curious:

My guess is the doc will strongly push statins, because that's just what doctors do for patients with high LDL and a CVD history. If you want ammunition not to take them, ask for an LDL Particle Test, also called a VAP test. This will measure what proportion of your LDL is more dangerous smaller particles vs relatively benign larger particles. Given that your triglycerides, HDL, and VLDL are all good, I'd say you have a good chance of getting a salutary result on this test.

Thanks for the lesson, very interesting. From my own blood lipid results, I have a discordancy that no doctor has been able to give me any insight on. My results are similar to Sulman's, but even more so. My triglycerides are extremely low, less than half the threshold of concern, and my HDL is in the optimum range. Yet my LDL is on the high side, especially for someone with CVD history. Do you know if this is highly unusual? Every doctor I've asked just shrugs and says I need to focus on the LDL. I was prescribed statins years ago after my stroke and they did keep my LDL's down even though I've only taken them sporadically, but with a recent elevation in my LDL, I've decided to go back to taking them as prescribed at least until I lose 20 lb.

Thanks for that.

Is it inaccurate to identify HDL and LDL as having two seperate jobs, each equally important? Ie one to the liver and the other to the cells?

If that’s accurate, and if your fat readings are ok, is there any inherent issue with pattern A LDL? My understanding is it’s smaller than HDL but still too big to lodge in the blood vessels But above suggests otherwise. I also believe LDL size is on a spectrum and the arbitrary division into A and B is simplistic, but B is shorthand for compacted instances that deviate from the norm due to third party interference.

The topic is all very interesting and not what I heard a year ago from the doctor. He looked at a single cholesterol reading without breakdown and without further discussion wrote out a prescription. Which I carefully put aside while I reconsidered my approach.

Something about the combination of CoronavirusPanic + US Presidential Race Bumbling... made me want to rewatch Wall-E.

First, I must digress & say my best friend-- the cross-dressing HIV+ knucklehead known as 'Fang'-- called me yesterday & said someone he trusts told him that it was time to prepare for shortages and unrest... due to Coronavirus. Fang told me he was concerned, but didn't want to be stuck with cans of beans and cases of pasta-- or whatever survival food, if the epidemic fizzles out. Fang then leapt immediately to chattering about whether he should buy a fucking CROSSBOW, of all things. "I know if 10 guys were coming at me, it wouldn't take them all out, but at least I could show it and say 'back off, or I'll take at least 1 of you with me blah blah blah." These words hit me like being slapped with a cold fish. I forget that Fang isn't firing on all cylinders. And that I forget that the general public operates at about Fang's level. Hence Biden and Bernie and Warren and Bloomberg and Trump.

Fang's a hard worker. He has amassed tens of thousands of dollars, from 2 shitty jobs, cleaning bars-- which has been his career since early teens. He's in his 40's now. He keeps the money in a safe deposit box-- not trusting banks & fearing that too-much money in the bank would disqualify him from subsidized AIDS meds. I have no idea if that fear is realistic. I've told him before-- that if he really expects society to collapse or malfunction seriously-- then he should convert some of that money to gold or hard trade-goods... maybe cases of vodka. Today I made a joke-- that he could hedge both options by hoarding Goldschläger.

I also told him that the price of gold had jumped-up, in the last couple days. Fang responded with a brilliantly idiotic Karl Pilkington-esque brainfart... which could be Fang's greatest asset, if I were dilligent enough to harness his golden stupidity, a la Ricky Gervais. Fang said he wished he had bought gold a few days ago-- to prepare for emergency. Because then he could flip the gold back to dollars today, and profit. My brain broke. I said flipping the gold back into a crashing currency-- would defeat the purpose of hedging against that currency in gold. If every dollar is only worth ten cents tomorrow, that doesn't mean you should Buy dollars. And buy even-more dollars when they're only worth a penny-on-the-dollar. Fang said doing-so would be a good idea, "when the value of the dollar bounces-back". I said that might never happen-- like Confederate money. And if it DID happen-- then there was no need to get rid of dollars in the first place... just out-wait the downturn & break-even.

So... tonight the girlfriend & I watched Wall-E. At first, I compared it to Heinlein's 'Orphans in the Sky'. But then I realized the blubbery humans in Wall-E are a much closer derivative of the "B" Ark spaceship in Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.

So I watched a clip of the old BBC TV series. Ford Prefect & Arthur Dent find themselves on a spaceship full of hairdressers and product marketing consultants and telephone sanitizers, in cryogenic sleep. The ship's captain is a nutter who spends all day every day in the bath. (Echoes of Rebecca Vitmun's hot tub, in my mind). The captain is a 'leader' on a par with US Presidential choices. The ship full of idiots colonize a planet & declare tree leaves to be the official currency. They all become obscenely rich, then inflation causes an exchange rate of 3 deciduous forests for 1 ship's peanut. So they decide to burn down the forests, to stabilize the currency. Meanwhile, the bigbrains who purged these idiots from the their home planet-- all die of a disease outbreak, spreading from an un-sanitized public telephone.

We're doomed.
