Studies Gone Wrong

Here’s a study from early of last year.

Many academics are pointing to this study as a reason to use the face mask. According to them the face mask increases the humidity of your airway.

They claim it does so because the mask traps water vapor which is then breathed back in to your lungs. Now, the reason they did the study is because they noted that people who live in moist humid environments have a lesser chance of contracting COVID-19 or experiencing the serious side effects of COVID-19.

Of course, this was already known during the first SARS epidemic; there was nothing new in knowing that humidity protected people, although you wouldn’t have known that from our government who failed to protect people when the pandemic began in 2020.

All Dr. Fauci had to do was tell you to turn off your air conditioner. He could have encouraged the elderly to move to a more humid environment. He could have encouraged people to purchase room humidifiers. I don’t remember him doing any of that.

In this study, individuals breathed into a box with a mask and without a mask.

What they discovered was that the humidity of the box went down when people wore a mask.

The researchers thus concluded that the mask would retain and increase humidity in the lungs.

This makes sense. If we aren’t wearing a mask and we are breathing into a box, the box then becomes an extension of our lungs. Of course the humidity will rise.

The problem with translating this experiment to the real world is that we don’t walk around with a box around our face.

When we walk, we walk at approximately 2 to 3 mph. it’s also likely that we’re encountering a wind current of another 2 to 5 mph. If we are walking outside we are also encountering the sun. Remember the sun? It’s that round thing in the sky that’s hot.

The sun and the wind tend to have a drying effect on the mask which will decrease markedly the water vapor that is retained within the mask. It’s very similar to placing a wet bath towel over a tub at night. You come back in the morning and the towel is magically dry.

Taking this into account, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to me that the mask is having the effect on humidity to the degree that they think it does. If you want to increase the humidity in your lungs, you’re probably better off by drinking a glass of water. Better yet, turn off the air conditioner.

So what’s the take home message?

A) Be careful about extrapolating studies to a real world experience. B) Many medical academics (not all) are often lazy thinkers and repeaters who are there to go along, get through the day, and make a few bucks.

Furthermore in our modern era, too much grant money is at stake for the professor to be truly objective. What is happening today in academia borders on extortion: Say what I want you to say, and I’ll leave you alone.

Charlie’s Looking Out For Us

Here’s another laugher.

Guy Spier, one of Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger’s puppets and mouthpieces, has rushed to the defense of Charlie Munger.

Here it is, right here.

He says that Charlie Munger did small investors a favor by calling Bitcoin “rat poison” back in 2013.

He was looking out for us, you see.

Charlie Munger was actually looking out for us.

Yes, it’s true.

Charlie Munger was scaring us away from cryptocurrency because he didn’t want us to lose our money on a speculative investment.

Is that a joke?

Of course he didn’t wants us to lose our money on cryptocurrency. If we lost our money on cryptocurrency, how would we ever lose our money to him in the casino that he and Buffet are running?

Thanks but no thanks, Charlie.

Thanks but no thanks, Guy.

Then amazingly, Spier goes on to say that Charlie Munger probably doesn’t give the same advice to his wealthy friends as he does to the rest of us suckers.

Is this guy brazen, or what?

Well, of course he’s brazen. Guy Spier is one of the anointed elites.

One only has to look at his résumé to see this. He attended both Oxford and Harvard.

That makes him privileged, stupid, and entitled.

Only someone who attended Harvard and Oxford could get away with saying something so stupid.

The rationale behind such a statement was that cryptocurrency was a speculative investment, unlike stocks, and that investing in cryptocurrency was like betting in a large poker room.

Some of the tables in the poker room, according to Guy Spier, are speculative scams in which we are likely to lose our money.

The average investor, according to Guy Spier, isn’t smart enough to pick the right table.

Savvy investors, however, most likely Charlie Munger‘s friends, are able to pick out the better tables and are therefore more likely to win.

Do you mean like the stock market, Guy Spier, a contrived, phony casino if ever there was one, a rigged joint where whales like William Ackman can short a stock and then get on television and trash companies like Herbal Life into submission so that they can make a fortune.

Do you mean like the stock market, Guy Spier, a good old boy game, where, in the midst of an IPO, wealthy elites at the major investment banks dole out hundreds of thousands of shares of stock to their friends for nothing?

Do you mean like the stock market, Guy Spier, a Texas Hold’em table if ever there was one, where large investors can afford to pay Harvard trained quants to write sophisticated high-frequency trading programs that run over high-speed networks in order to see everybody’s pocket cards before fleecing them out of their money?

Are you talking about that legitimate poker table?

I’ll tell you what, Guy Spier, why don’t you and your scam-meister, Munger, let us figure out what’s legitimate or not.

Or maybe we already have.

Maybe that’s why people are investing in cryptocurrency, fuck face. Maybe they already have figured out Munger’s game.

Maybe that’s what you don’t like.

Sincerely,

Skills, Baby

Here’s one of the more moronic things I’ve heard this weekend.

There’s this thinking going around that because an NFL team is loosey-goosey and has nothing to lose, then they have a chance of beating a top caliber team.

OK.

I am listening.

I am listening.

I am rejecting you.

Let me see if I can get this straight now.

I’m going to go back in time and play Bobby Fischer in chess. Bobby Fischer is of course not alive anymore; that’s why I have to go back in time.

I haven’t played chess since eighth grade, over fifty years ago.

I was a good player back then, but I was certainly no child prodigy who became a grandmaster.

Nevertheless I’m going to go back in time and play Bobby Fischer in chess.

I feel loosey-goosey, and I feel great.

I’m totally relaxed.

I have nothing to lose.

So what are my chances of beating Bobby Fischer?

Zero.

Absolute zero.

Yet, according to the morons on television this weekend, I stand a pretty good chance of beating Bobby Fischer.

That’s what they’re saying about the Pittsburgh Steelers facing the Kansas City Chiefs.

Why, Pittsburgh has nothing to lose. They’re loosey-goosey. They stand a good chance of winning.

They are saying the same thing about the Philadelphia Eagles going up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Why, the Eagles have nothing to lose.

I don’t care if they only stand to lose a bottle of Coke, neither Philadelphia or Pittsburgh is going to win.

Sure, I guess the stadium could blow up.

I suppose that a jumbo airliner could land on the Kansas City Chiefs.

I suppose that every member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could have a heart attack.

But I don’t think that’s gonna happen.

Nevertheless Pittsburgh and Philadelphia are loosey-goosey and have nothing to lose.

Just like me when I go up against Bobby Fischer.

In reality, never discussed on television, what wins football games are skills.

What wins chess games are skills.

The Pittsburgh Steelers do not have the same level of skills as the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Philadelphia Eagles do not have the same level of skills as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

I do not have the same skills in chess as Bobby Fisher.

Skills win the day.

Being loosey-goosey and totally relaxed don’t mean diddly if you don’t have the skills.

Sincerely,

A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

Hey, Bitcoiners, do you trust Michael Saylor of Microstrategy?

Michael Saylor is the founder and head of Microstrategy. He is also a big proponent of Bitcoin.

Now, he came to the game a bit late, but he is still a big player in Bitcoin.

So do you trust him?

I don’t.

I don’t trust him at all.

He’s a mole.

I did at first, but I didn’t know who he was.

Then I found out that he went to MIT.

MIT is one of the Empire’s top schools.

Michael Saylor is a billionaire who made it big on Microstrategy

I can tell you right now, that he wouldn’t have gone anywhere near the heights that he did unless he’d had the Empire’s backing.

His story is one of rags to riches.

He made it big because the big boys invested in his firm.

He owes his bones to the Empire.

Here’s rule number for those of you caring to join.

Never betray the Empire.

Never.

The Empire can make you and break you anytime they want, and betrayal is the only crime we never forgive.

We say we forgive; we lie. We are not noble.

Michael Saylor doesn’t look like a fool to me.

Nor does he look like a stupid guy.

This guy is betting the ranch on Bitcoin.

If he’s betting the ranch on Bitcoin, he has the blessing of the Empire.

If he has the blessing of the Empire, nothing is going to happen to him financially if Bitcoin crashes.

Somehow, someway he will be able to escape with selling his Bitcoin early should the price crash to zero.

He’s not going to get hurt. The Empire won’t allow him to get hurt -not in the real sense of getting hurt.

If he makes money on Bitcoin, it will be because the Empire plays the same game with Bitcoin that they play with the stock market – take it up, take it down, take it up, take it down.

In such a scenario, the regular guy loses out.

One way or the other, Michael Saylor isn’t going to lose.

So what’s his game?

How should I know? I am not him. I am not the Empire.

Whatever it is, it’s not good for us.

What Michael Saylor is doing is bringing the big boys into Bitcoin. That’s not what we want.

What we want is for Bitcoin to grow organically from the bottom up until one day it surprises the Empire and crushes it.

Michael Saylor is one of King Louis’s advisers waking him up and letting him know that the French citizenry is unhappy and is planning a revolt.

That’s not what we want.

Michael Saylor has allowed the big boys to come in and exploit Bitcoin and play their stupid little stock market game with it.

That’s bad for us.

King Louis has awoken.

Sincerely,

Archer Crosley

CalCare: DOA

Will CalCare work?

Poorly.

CalCare is Governor Gavin Newsome’s ambitious plan to cover healthcare for all Californians.

Assuming it does pass, it will work poorly, escalate healthcare costs, and cause a further widening of the wealth gap between rich and poor.

That it will do so is a mathematical certainty.

It will do so because in a government run healthcare system decisions are often made not in the best interest of the patient but in the best interest of the politician’s friend.

You can expect cavernous clinics in the middle of nowhere that sit empty.

You can expect a massive surplus in hospital supplies that are unnecessary.

You can expect programs and projects within CalCare to teeter on the edge of bankruptcy.

The fraud and waste will be incredible.

Complaints, emergency meetings and stopgap funding will become the norm.

Expect the likes of the London ambulance company and its 45 minute response times.

It can’t be anything but this.

Ultimately single payer in California will pass.

It will pass not because its time has come, as the politicians will crow.

Nor will it pass because it’s the best thing for the people.

It will pass because the wealthy thug elite will have already laid out a plan to rape the system bare.

Fraud will be in the cards.

It’ll be a done deal.

That’s the future we face in the United States today.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

If California truly wants to provide affordable and accessible healthcare for everybody, all it needs to do is to create a competitive healthcare marketplace.

This would entail breaking up the large healthcare monopolies and insurers.

It would mean breaking up large pharmaceutical conglomerates.

These current corporations are bloated, ossified dinosaurs that make an aged and overweight Elvis look like a ripped stud with a chiseled six pack.

Competition works!

Only with true competition can you get better quality of care at a cheaper cost.

Currently we don’t have that.

Thus far politicians have been unwilling to spend the political capital to take on the large corporations.

Indeed, they are puppets of the large corporations.

That’s the way it is.

And that’s why CalCare will fail.

Sincerely,

A Fake Good Guy

Do you know who Boris Johnson is?

Boris Johnson is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Take a look at him.

He looks like a good guy. He does goofy things like a good guy. He dresses shabbily like a good guy. But he’s not a good guy.

He’s not a good guy because he’s a member of the British upper class. And the British upper class has done a lot of damage to people around the world.

He was educated at Eton and Oxford, two of the British Empire’s top schools. That’s where you learn how to be a crook.

The British aristocracy is very good at presenting leaders who appear to represent you, who appear to be of you, but who really represent the British aristocracy.

In our country, the United States, our elites play the same game. That’s why they gave you George Bush and George Herbert Walker Bush.

George Herbert Walker Bush seemed like a nice guy. He wasn’t.

George Walker Bush, his son, acted goofy and said a lot of goofy things just like regular people do, but he wasn’t a regular person, and he isn’t a regular person.

Both George Bush and George Herbert Walker Bush helped rape the American people just as Boris Johnson rapes the people of the United Kingdom.

Here’s how they do it.

I will pick Britain, but the same methodology applies to the United States.

The British pick a country that they want to dominate. Then they go to that country, usually a weaker country, and prop up a thug who they own. If the thug is not already in power, they use their vast sums of money to put him in power. They may even assassinate the current leader.

After this is done they conduct a sweetheart deal with the thug. Britain will loan the country money in order to purchase goods from British industries who the British aristocracy own and control. It’s called corporate welfare. The thug will borrow the money and purchase the goods but not before taking a healthy cut for himself, usually in the billions of dollars. He will bank this money with banks that the British aristocracy control. These will usually be offshore accounts.

In addition to borrowing money from Britain, the thug will allow the British to mine minerals in his country on the cheap. The British will come in and mine for bauxite, copper, or even gold. This is positioned to the people as a good thing because it provides jobs. Additionally there may also be textile sweatshops that again the British control. The people will often work 10 to 12 hour workdays for peanuts. Working conditions will be poor, and the people will become disgruntled.

In time the people of the thug’s country will figure out what is going on and will force him to leave. The thug will leave the country and find exile in a country that the British aristocracy control. It may be even in Britain itself. He will enjoy his exile in luxury. He will partake of pheasant and fine expensive wines. Meanwhile, back at home, the people will become mired in economic devastation. They have little to show for the money that was borrowed from Britain. They have to pay that money back. Usually the interest rates alone cripple the economy. The people become perpetual renters, which is exactly what the British aristocracy desires.

Slavery never died as far as the upper classes are concerned.

What is hidden from the people of Britain is that this methodology hurts them. What the British aristocracy does is take decent paying jobs away from British citizens. They take those jobs and place them in the thug’s country where they pay people two to six dollars per day. Meanwhile the people back in Britain go hungry. This is why they say that the sun never set on the British Empire but never rose on the slums of London.

This is what empires do.

Boris Johnson is an officer of that empire. George Bush and George Herbert Walker Bush were officers of the American empire.

They are not nice guys.

The Office Elects the Man

You are a talented person.

How can you know which field to enter in life?

How can you know what your career path should be?

Are you young? Are you searching?

Generally speaking, the field that is best for you is one that best takes advantage of the skills that you have learned before you even knew you were learning those skills.

Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to be objective about yourself and see this clearly.

My dentist, who is a great dentist, was good at building models when he was a boy. He told me that he built every model under the sun.

He was developing skills, dexterity and patience, before he even knew that he was doing what he was doing.

It was only natural that he become a dentist.

When I was a kid I asked a lot of questions, but beyond that I had a way with other kids.

Children liked me.

And still do.

I had an accommodating personality.

When I was a little boy, my mother babysat an infant for another family. I would sit there all day and play with this nine-month-old infant.

When I was thirteen my father died, and I was left without a guide. I had to read a lot of books in order to figure things out in life.

I wanted to know why things worked and why people were successful at things.

I didn’t know I was going to be a pediatrician.

I didn’t know that I was going to be able to give advice based upon all the wide-ranging stuff I had read in my life.

My skills found me.

We become who we are before we know who we are.

It is the skills that we learn when we are young that make us a natural for the field that eventually finds us.

And it will find you, just like it found me.

I didn’t plan to become a pediatrician.

Not at all.

In fact I ran away from it as much as I possibly could.

While in medical school, I wanted to be an emergency room doctor.

But guess what?

The emergency room didn’t like me.

Nor did a lot of other occupations that I tried to master.

While I was becoming a pediatrician, I was wasting my time trying to be everything else.

You name, I tried it.

I tried writing plays. I tried writing computer programs. I tried novels. I even tried cartooning.

I tried being a YouTube star. I tried becoming a businessman.

So what?

It doesn’t matter what I wanted to become.

It didn’t matter that I liked doing those things.

Those things didn’t like me back.

Ultimately, you have to stick with that which likes you back.

And that which likes you back is a field that requires the skills that match best the skills that you possess.

It will find you.

Don’t fret about life.

Put one step in front of the other and work diligently at what is before you.

All the anguishing in the world isn’t going to get you one step further.

As Ulysses Grant once said, and I will paraphrase: The office elects the man.

Forget about what you want.

Go to the dance with the boy or girl that likes you.

Sincerely,

The Kim Jong Un Club

Read this story,

As I have mentioned before, even back in the late 1970s I would pick up the newspaper and read about the Hasty Pudding Club at Harvard University and the latest Hollywood celebrity to visit there in order to genuflect before them.

The first article I remember reading was in the Laredo Times.

The Laredo Times?

Why would the goings-on of the Hasty Pudding Club be of interest to the people of Laredo, Texas?

Beyond that I would wonder why the media thought it was necessary for me to know this information.

Was the media just giving me pleasant information to know, to entertain me?

Was there something important going on at this event?

Was it important to know that the Hasty Pudding Club was honoring this particular celebrity?

How would this story make my life better?

As I grew older, I came to understand exactly why the “Hasty Pudding” stories were planted back in the 1970s, and why they are still planted today.

The stories exist to program me, to let me know that Harvard is some important place that warrants being talked about.

It isn’t.

Who gives a flying fuck who the Hasty Pudding Club honors? Why is the Hasty Pudding Club any more important than Archer Crosley or you?

Why is the Hasty Pudding Club more important than the drama department at your small college?

It isn’t.

The story at the beginning of this article exists to program you, to ingrain in your mind that Harvard is some some important entity that must be listened to.

The story exists to cement the superiority of the Harvard graduate.

It is one brick in the wall of bricks that the elites have created to confine you, to pen you in.

That’s why you genuflect before Harvard University.

That’s why you think that Harvard represents the best and brightest.

That’s why you vote for Harvard knuckleheads like Ted Cruz, Barack Obama, Elise Stefanik, Chuck Schumer, Glenn Youngkin, and Tom Cotton.

The sooner you understand that, the sooner you will be able to immunize yourself against this pernicious programming.

The programming exists for a purpose.

The purpose is to create an elite class of people to rule over you.

Permanently.

They are in the club, and you are not.

And that’s the way they want it.

Sincerely,

Wrong Thinking

So there were secret commandos with shoot to kill orders there at the Capitol on 1/6?

I don’t think our Congress gets it. If you need to have secret commandos to protect politicians, then you’re doing something wrong.

That’s the take home message.

The Super Toxin

Here is something I wrote almost two years ago. I found it buried within the bowels of my computer, down deep. I’m not sure if I published it or not, but when I read it I was amused. Do I really believe this stuff? Of course I do.

“Today at the Super Bowl, the CIA puppet-master did the halftime show.  Standing on the grave of JFK, he placed his two puppets, Shakira and J Lo, dressed in sequins and black leather, on the Altar of Zeus before you and did a beguiling sexual dance to entertain you, to entrance you, to numb you, to intoxicate you, to distract you from the death and suffering he causes millions around the globe.”
