I fasted yesterday. I think I ate about 400 calories. Last night, my sleep was very affected. I was really cold all night, but I was sweating. I added an extra blanket and had a sleep that was full of very strange nightmares. It was actually kind of interesting and I don't feel tired today. I actually feel pretty energized. I haven't decided what to eat yet. I am just having a coffee right now. I have no steak in the house, but I do have some very good left-over roasted chicken.
Another day working from home (since April) ...

Lunch at 3:00pm
Dinner at 7:00

In total - two sirloin steaks cooked in butter.
Two fried eggs.
Cheese and walnuts.
Water and black coffee.

Fast walked 9km, 70 push-ups.

Meh. Life is bubble now.

John, luckily it’s unlikely your body will self destruct after a day. I’m assuming, like most of us, you have some BYO energy around the middle?

It was probably just kangaroo jumping as it tried to change gears from carbs to fat.

Of course, no one here ever said the virus definitely came from a lab. But what do you expect from a mendacious sophist cunt.

Yes, I wasn't meaning to call anyone here out. I was also promoting the possibility of lab escape back in February. Consistent with his M.O., FTP interpreted the dispute uncharitably.

Wuhan virus pandemic will be over in two - three weeks in US:

https://jbhandleyblog.com/home/2020/7/2 ... wIxuUuwrXI

Why? Death curve has already peaked.

Not sure how the Democrats stretch this out to November, especially as the shit is about to hit the fan with remote learning instead of classrooms, which leaves parents with jobs completely fucked.

All that red smoke from NO₂ is pretty, but quite deadly at the kind of concentrations where you can see the colour. Hope it blew out to sea as they have quite enough problems without that too.

With an actual nuke-- I think there's a blinding flash of light, and then you have a fraction of a second before the hot hot hot thermal pulse & shockwave follow.

Maybe just enough time to dive for cover, tho most people would pause & be hit by both.

On a clear day-- the flash will sunburn you black in straight lines from the blast, anything in shadow will be spared. But, I think, on a foggy or hazy day (when you wouldn't see shadows from the sun) the flash will be diffused & will scatter 'around corners', seeming to come from all directions.

Also-- I think a nuke's EMP would fry video cameras and cell phones.

I’m late to the party— watching The Last Kingdom on Netflix— after Shatterface, HunnyBunny, dogen, comhcinc, Suhlman, shoutinghorse, CommanderTuvok, MarcusAu &Tigzy— all mentioned the show on the Pyt, going back to 2015.

Finished Season 1, episode 8/8, last night.

I find all the craven lower-royalty to be relevant to today’s politics. The unfit sons of Cuomo, decrepit Biden & Hunter, Trudeau fils, waddling Jerry Nadler, the halfwit Mayor diBlasio, the clergy Fauci & Birx & Niall Fergusson. Possible heroes working in the margins— Joe Rogan, Zuby. Preening governors Whitmer, Skeletor Pelosi’s nephew Gavin Newsom. Blood-thirsty fanatic Ocasio. Warmonger Bolton. Star-chamber Schiff.

This morning I’m also listening to Mencius Moldbug, interviewed by Free Man Beyond The Wall Mance Rayder.

Moldbug argues that hereditary monarchy is libertarian, because such governments are actually quite small. Also, there’s incentive for such monarchs to plan ahead for their grandchildren, or 500 years in the future.

I read (or at least listened to) one of the books (Bernard Cornwell) - so can't speak to the series directly.

But I would not have thought that hereditary monarchy was libertarian. Or indeed if in the context of the times that it was entirely hereditary - something about 'Athelings' (or royal candidates) comes to mind - but memory fades...

And of course was it not more to the point as to whether you were going to get a Saxon monarchy or a Viking one? I think anarchy was given a shot at one point though, which come to think of it, does seem to be more in line with minarchism,

I don't think Moldbug's opinion is definitive-- just interesting. He cites Hans Herman Hoppe describing a monarchy as a privately-held family corporation which owns the nation it rules.

I can recommend getting stuck into kettle bells. Learn how to handle them correctly and you get a full body dynamic workout that provides for both aerobic and anaerobic fitness, gets you lean and strong relatively quickly, and you don't have to spend hours doing the exercises or grunting under heavy weights.

Hmm. Thanks. I’ll YouTube it.

I was doing curls with 10kg dumbbells ... until I pulled something in my arm.
Figured working on proper technique (ie slow chest to ground and full arm extension up) push-ups might be a safer resistance option.

But I’ll have a look.

Sargon sez the judge has been promoted to the appeals court, so if she seeks to appeal-- she'll go-before the same judge.


So, Dankula points-out, maybe she shouldn't have tried to cancel the the judge, yesterday...

Skepticon coming August 15th....no schedule of speakers, not much info at all
We hope you are staying safe and healthy wherever you are. Times are wild and hard and we’re right there with you working in our communities and trying to keep ourselves and our families safe. Our dino hearts are with you, always.

We’re writing today because we have news: SKEPTICON 12 IS STILL HAPPENING.

That’s right. It’s. Still. Happening.

While we won’t be able to do Skepticon in person like we usually do, we are planning on doing some things here on the internet. Who’s excited to stare at more screens?! YAY! US, TOO!

We’ll be releasing details in the next couple weeks, so stay tuned and safe. Feel free to RSVP to our Facebook event to stay up to date, too!

I'd start with someone like Greg Brookes (https://kettlebellsworkouts.com/). A random search can get you boofhead wannabee Russian spetsnaz.

Start at 10 - 12 kgs if you aren't in the best condition. 16 kgs is relatively light once you've mastered the movements and have got your dynamic strength, but it still gives a good workout if you use it consistently, so no need to go to 20 kg and beyond unless you are training for some event.

Oh, and I wouldn't worry about dumbbell curls. They are for posers. Isolation exercises like that are fine if you wan't to look like Arnie, but are not good for building functional muscle or for weight loss. I went from a 34 to a 31 waist when I got back into a regular routine and without changing my diet just because my core had strengthened and leaned out. Kettlebells will work your whole arm and shoulder. Your biceps will come up fine and you'll have more definition and strength in your triceps.

Home is a dangerous place.

I'm not a zealot for them. I have just found them really effective for both general fitness and conditioning, and ramping up for co-training with martial arts.

Who can blame her for feeling cheated. What was the point of Obama appointing all of those activist judges if a girl can't get the correct decision? Like all good atheist skeptics I once scoffed at the wingnut "activist judge" accusations, but not any more. Robert Barnes (see Viva Frei vlog) has said a number of times that SJWism has been infecting legal education for quite a while with students taught to construct an interpretation of the law to reach the desired (i.e. on the "right side of history") conclusion. His contention is that left-leaning judges are particularly prone to making political decisions. Judge Sullivan for instance, or the mongoloid who handled the Roger Stone fiasco. Characters like Hughes really do appear to feel entitled to a judgement that supports their politics.

I was a little concerned we'd lost our crown, but the Halifax explosion still wins at 2.9kilotons.
Heh! I did some reading and the biggest explosion after Halifax was Hiroshima at a whopping 15 kilotons. The explosion in Beirut is the second biggest. Chernobyl, despite what the series and documentaries have told you, isn't even in the same ballpark, at a low but still devastating 0.3 kilotons. The Tunguska event apparently clocked in at 3-30 MEGATONS. Imagine the noise THAT made.

Just that this sort of Orwellian police state stuff is being openly suggested, is deeply alarming.

I agree that the no-longer-officially-a-pandemic is nearly played out. But the Dems need to keep the hysteria and damage to the economy going for another three months. Over that span, they also need to keep Joe Biden from talking for more than five minutes straight, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg from kicking the bucket.

Those were statistics provide by Island Health Region, all documented and reviewed. That is completely different from an anecdote.

Your 'Dr Droops' video was posted April 2. It contains clips of Dr Drew speaking on February 6.

I see a pattern. Much like the banned Dr Stella Immanuel video, you have an aversion to addressing the contents of the thing you're replying-to. Instead, you attack the credibility of the source. Using prior statements from the source. Which are indeed unflattering. But also not-quite relevant to the current assertion.

Dr Drew responded to the Dr Droops video, one day after it was posted. He apologized for comparing the mortality rate of Covid-19 to the mortality rate of Influenza. Apparently, this is not kosher-- because the two stats are collected in wildly-different ways. So the Flu rate can be reliably compared to previous years (collected & calculated the same way each year). And the Covid rate could be reliably compared to prior days-or-weeks' Covid rate (as long as data was collected & calculated in a consistent way. ((Which it isn't.)) But the two data-streams are not reliably interchangeable.) https://www.contagionlive.com/news/why- ... equivalent

Dr. Drew's mea culpa strikes me as honest & sufficient. And he deserves praise for-- on the day of his apology video-- also signing-up to volunteer as a frontline physician in Covid-19 hotspots.

However-- I do not wish to sully the pristine standard of purity required for the free thoughtpolice evidentiary Seal Of Approval.

So please tell me which experts should we rely upon henceforth?--

What are the names of these adequate physicians, whose Covid-predictions from early February do not contradict their current opinion?

Name one.

According to wikipedia:
[quoteViews on COVID-19
Between February to Mar 2020, Drew made a series of statements concerning the COVID-19 outbreak where he downplayed the seriousness of the pandemic, stating that it was not as bad as the flu, and suggested that it was a "press-induced panic".[32] A 5-minute compilation of the statements was posted by DroopsDr on YouTube, but was temporarily taken down "due to a copyright claim by Drew Pinsky Inc." The video was later re-instated after several attorneys and many others defended DroopsDr.[33]

Drew subsequently apologized and urged people to follow the advice of Anthony Fauci.[32][34]][/quote]

So he used his big reality star status to try to silence/deplatform/ big tech censor someone that pointed out his mistakes. After legal action he apologized and endorsed Fauci. The guy that endorsed Fauci, the advocate of rigorous scientific method is back to endorsing advocates of giving more credence to anecdotal evidence.
To be fair, in the early days of the pandemic there was even less known about the bug than is known now, and there was more speculation because there wasn't much established and many were uncertain and made mistakes. He was wrong and eventually admitted it which is good. On the bad side, he appears to be back to endorsing a looser approach.
These days I am having trouble believing anything reality show hosts say. Call me cynical.

You woulda had a good point-- if you'd simply pointed-out that Dr Drew's nonsense copyright-claim against the Dr Droops video was incredibly similar to Akilah Hughes' nonsense copyright-claim against Sargon's video.

But you mucked-up your argument by claiming Drew "used his big reality star status" to do so. How so? Didn't Drew just hit the DMCA complaint button on YouTube, like anyone could?

I also enjoy the disconnect between you advocating -for- censorship of wrong-opinions about Covid/ but -against- Dr Drew trying to get his own wrong opinions censored.
After legal action he apologized and endorsed Fauci.
You got that wrong, too. In his apology video-- Dr Drew indeed endorsed Fauci. But that wasn't new. All of Drew's previous covid predictions-- excerpted in the Dr Droops video-- were accompanied by Drew's caveat that viewers should look to Dr Fauci for the best information. Dr Drew said Fauci is his "north star" on these matters.

You cite wikipedia-- quoting Dr. Drew's "press-induced panic" comment. Here's the actual clip. Keep listening past those 3 words & hear what Drew says about Fauci:
https://youtu.be/HKpuq0wkF8g?t=58

Hang on a sec. How is your cynical disbelief any-different than Dr Drew's cynicism about the 'press induced panic'? Some of the snippets in your Dr Droops video-- which appear to show Dr Drew scoffing at the seriousness of the virus-- are clips of him reacting to Joy Behar on The View preaching maximum doom & gloom about Covid. Drew said people should not take their cues from Joy Behar, but from Dr Fauci.

Enough of your goofy diversion tactics. Did you even watch Dr. Drew's interview with Dr. Vladamir Zelenko?
