    anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers can all claim they are vaccinated

ohhhh... so you've met my sister-in-law. Yes. Now she says "I identify as vaccinated" so that she can not only insult science, but throw a little side-jab at the trans population.

ahhhhhh family.

I worry a lot about you riding with a pup. It's usually a lose lose for both parties.

I had a friend who had a racing-rescue greyhound. The only way she felt like she could adequately exercise the pup was to take it to a local baseball diamond and have it run in huge circles. they're usuallyenclosed, so the pupper couldn't escape, and it meant lots and lots of running for the dog - and not for her. You'd have to be super conscientious about the shit though. No one want dogs shit around.

I hear ya on the mask thing. Allergy season is weird... and every little cough or sneeze is making people around me nervous. Ugh.

This live performance is a great one (if you're into Bon Iver). It's fun at the 22:20 mark when his technology doesn't work)

it saddens me a little to see the export of gun/gang/boozing/drug culture from the US to Sweden

I just skimmed around - I got a solid love for Snow Canyon... and basically the whole area. Kind of north Vegas now, but still.. a magical place for me.

    everyone in the house being vaccinated and starting to live our lives again

Congrats! It's a lovely feeling isn't it?

    I can't imagine a more lovely way to spend that money from the Federal Government; on local craftsmen, so an artist can make more art.

Truly lovely. I've spent the last little while just drooling over both sites and the beautiful instruments pictured therein. Well done sir.

They're probably both great ideas... cutting carbs is a good idea in general (for most Americans) with an occasional fast to lock in some rejuvenating goodness. (but talk to a doctor/nutritionist, etc. - not this fat guy)

this is fantastic data for all of my family/friends who love to say "if it wasn't COVID, these people would have died from the flu or car accidents or whatever... if it wasn't for these fascist governors who locked us all up"

I was waiting for your response, and it didn’t disappoint. Take a bow my friend. That’s a quality bl00 takedown.

steve  ·  16 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Cryptocurrency is a disaster

    Cryptocurrency is one of the worst inventions of the 21st century. I am ashamed to share an industry with this exploitative grift. It has failed to be a useful currency, invented a new class of internet abuse, further enriched the rich, wasted staggering amounts of electricity, hastened climate change, ruined hundreds of otherwise promising projects, provided a climate for hundreds of scams to flourish, created shortages and price hikes for consumer hardware, and injected perverse incentives into technology everywhere. Fuck cryptocurrency.

I wonder how he really feels...

Whoops. yes - and thank you for catching that. and as a bonus... here's Prince in the actual rain

steve  ·  19 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Scientists find new evidence linking essential oils to seizures (n=350)

This is almost worth logging in to Facebook and trolling some people with.

I’d be interested in the results from a larger study and one that isn’t as regional, taking in factors of oil sourcing, etc.

Thanks for sharing this one.

Oooof. Was great for the first 20 hours. So vaccine Wednesday at 1pm and fine the rest of the day. Felt pretty good when I woke up, good enough even to go into the office. That devolved into kind of a foggy, groggy afternoon, which by the evening, turned into an achy 101F temp. I had read that ibuprofen (my go to) isn’t the best solution for this, since the immune response is, an inflammatory response, so to take an anti-inflammatory is to potentially lessen the immune response. In my foggy brain, it took a while to realize we don’t have any Acetaminophen in the house, so a quick trip to the drug store got us sorted out. Felt meh until I went to sleep. Woke up Friday morning and I could tell I had sweat all night, but I felt about 95%. By Friday night I felt 100% but tired.

All in all - nothing terrible. Just foggy brain, followed by a fever and chills. But I’d take it every year if it means not catching Covid. 10/10 would recommend, and also would recommend just planning to chill the second day.

    I’ve been surviving breaking cancer for just over nine years now.

Keep up the good work my friend.

steve  ·  19 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: The Police Trainer Who Teaches Cops to Kill

    how'd you come across this video?

It was on Imgur - a different video actually - where he says something about after killing someone in the line of duty, cops go home and have the best sex of their life (because they feel so alive. )

    At some point in the future we can only hope this dude and his video becomes part of a larger conversation.

That’s my hope. I have doubts, but posting it here might help at least a little? OftenBen is right though - he’s been out there and getting press for a while, I’m just learning about him - but there’s and entire swatch of the country that eats this shit up. They “back the blue” through and through.
