Yes I'm sure they'll try that too, but I'm not sure how much traction that narrative will have given the large number of obvious failures.

Any government claiming victory on the war on covid will ring as hollow as George Bush Jr standing in front of the "Mission Accomplished" banner a decade before the Iraq war actually ended.

Today marked a huge change in tone in the news, as far as I can tell. UK dropped so many restrictions all at once and the CDC admitted cloth masks don't work at all. The pivot is almost palpable. I think they want to upset and confuse as many people as possible, honestly. I think they're intentionally creating the conditions for a "revolution" that will led by false leaders to capture even more power.

I honestly think we're seeing a mass MK-ultra style intentionally-generated confusion that disables people. Confused people give up. They keep changing the narrative so drastically no one knows which way is up anymore. This is the modern method of propaganda, to generate confusion by way of infinite conflicting narratives, rather than the old way of propaganda which is to try and convince you of one specific narrative.

Interesting, I will read some more about the B lymphocyte memory cells. Why do you think the virus doesn't allow them to be built, while most other viruses do? It would explain the effects though. Perhaps though it's just like the flu, where the strains change so regularly that even if you're immune to last year's flu, you're not immune to the new strain.

As far as the discrediting ivermectin, I am fairly certain this is due to the Emergency Use Authorization which allows all these mRNA shots to be used nationally, which requires that "no other treatments be available". So the existence of other treatments might invalidate the EUA which could cost these pharma companies literally tens of billions of dollars in potential profit. So they're bribing the media to make ivermectin look bad, to lock in those EUA profits, because that is the profitable maneuver.

IMO this EUA theory makes everything else make perfect sense.

I think it's going to be the opposite. They're going to pretend the last 2 years never happened, and the idiot sheep will play right along as always. Then there will be a minority going "Shouldn't we hold people accountable for what just happened?" and the news and politicians will go "no, it's time to get back to normal, just be grateful it's over"

Then the damage will be done, and the perpetrators will walk away scot-free. All in time to set up the next scam.

They had the entire DNA sequence of the virus in 2020 already, so clearly it's been isolated... https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/01/200131114748.htm

They had to isolate it to make it in the lab. It started out as isolated.

The symptoms of a panic attack often come from hyperventilation caused by breathing too deeply or quickly. This is why breathing in to a bag can raise CO2 levels in the blood and get a person feeling normal again. "Take deep breaths" is exactly the wrong thing to do in the case of a panic attacks by magnora7 in science

[–]magnora7[S] 5 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Holding your breath would also raise CO2 levels.

So if someone you know ever feels like they're having a panic attack, or if you feel dizzy and tingly and like you're losing consciousness, and feel like you're gasping for air, try holding your breath or breathing very shallowly and slowly, and you should return to normal over 5-10 minutes.

I just stumbled across this wiki article saying the primary cause of panic attacks is people breathing too quickly and deeply, causing hyperventilation and CO2 depletion, which ironically makes people gasp for air and feel like they can't breathe, so they breathe more deeply. This feedback loop is basically what a panic attack is, and it's why people sometimes pass out or feel like they're dying. The pH of blood actually changes because of the lack of CO2.

The main reason I knew it wasn't the flu was because it had the same symptom as the original and delta, a symptom which no flu has ever given me before... extreme fatigue and exhaustion upon standing and moving, for weeks after all the other symptoms had cleared up. Like if I was sitting I was 100% fine, but when I stood up to move and do stuff I would immediately feel absolutely exhausted and wrecked after the mildest of physical activities. Like I need a 30 minute sit after walking across the house. No flu or cold ever felt fine in one posture and then terrible in another posture. That was the telltale sign it was covid for me.

Also my friend who also got it and gave it to me tested positive for covid, for whatever that's worth. As did his friend who gave it to him (who also got over it in 3-4 days).

I was taking daily zinc + Quercetin. Every 2 days a small dose of ivermectin. Lots of vitamin D. Niacin to break up blood clots, both flushing and non-flushing.

Seemed to work okay. I did get dehydrated by the end though, and I had some sort of histamine inflammation reaction that caused my digestion to be very painful for a few days after all the other symptoms had cleared up. I have since heard antihistamines like famotidine and benadryl are useful against covid, and if I could go back I'd probably take a bunch of antihistamines toward the end. Glad to be on the other side of it all. Can't wait until everyone else is too.

Brings to mind the question: What is the difference between something that is super white and a mirror? They both reflect 100% of light.

The answer is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diffuse_reflection

It's interesting metals do not have diffuse reflection (and are thus mirrors) because they do not allow photons to penetrate even the outermost layer of atoms. All white things allow some amount of photons in at least for the first few layers of atoms, which are eventually reflected back out. However as they bounce around going in and out, they change angle. So if you shine a laser at a white wall you will see the laser point on the wall from every angle in the room. But you only see a laser off a mirror if your eye lines up with the beam.

A photon on a metal immediately bounces off without any penetration, every single photon of every frequency bouncing off the outermost electron orbital layer of the outermost atoms. In metals, the outermost layers all band together to create a continuous electron "shell" for the whole material, called the "band layer" and this band shell is what makes metals electrically conductive.

One thing that got hardly any press that seemed like a big deal to me, was when Biden appointed his son to the board of the largest energy company in Ukraine.

The MSM talks about hunter's laptop and ashleys diary, and quid-pro-quo. But they hardly ever talked about this appointment in 2014 which ties together both the Ukraine situation and the Biden situation, which seems like a bombshell.

https://popularresistance.org/joe-bidens-son-appointed-to-board-of-largest-gas-company-in-ukraine/

I think that's why they focus so much on Hunter smoking crack and whatever. Because they don't want to talk about how Hunter Biden is helping to take over Ukraine and act as a bulwark against Russian invasion.

It seemed so weird to me how it just got glossed over like it was no big deal. Seems like a coverup in retrospect.

It was hard to find this article because of all the other MSM articles clouding up this topic. I had to go to duckduck go and set a date range of only before 2018, then I was able to find it.

As opposed to the current left-wing dictatorship that's locking everyone in their houses in Canada? Over a disease twice as deadly as the flu?

The way the left has been acting the last two years is going to move a lot of people to the right.

However the whole left-right dichotomy is just another divide-and-conquer mechanism, to give us only two choices when in actuality both choices are controlled.

There's no incentive not to delete old posts.

Sure there is, allowing community participation.

I think the real fix for the issue you brought up is to increase the "hot" ranking as a function of number of comments, instead of just votes. Then more commented stuff would linger around longer.

There's a careful balance between making the front page look non-stale (it needs to change regularly to keep people coming back) and having old threads with lots of comments being seen. But I wouldn't mind stuff with lots of comments hanging out on the 'hot' sort for a bit longer

I think some of the buildings are good quality, but they're just building so many at such a rapid pace, many never even having any intention of being lived in but instead used as a store of value. But if 30% of the buildings are unusable garbage, then that could easily cause a real estate collapse if people are buying assets that won't actually hold their value.

I'm down for that.

Someone deleted a post yesterday and it still appeared on the "hot" list. So I think it's only the "top" list that's affected maybe? If you could just re-add them on "top" sort I think that'd solve most of the issue maybe

It's like why even bother commenting? "True Reddit" my ass. I guess it is "true reddit" in the sense that it's controlled by shills and censored to hell. I assume I'll be banned from the sub within the hour, once the mods notice my comments.

Just another DNC-shill controlled subreddit like the rest of reddit.

What I'm saying even backs up the point made in the article itself. Reddit is an absolute dumpster fire.

Yes I love how remarkably specific some of those are.

Sounds good. By 'the content' you mean the username and any selfpost text? Link posts would be unaffected (except username becoming [deleted]), I guess?

However it works out, as long as people can find the public comment sections later, I think that's the main deal.

Anyway, not a super pressing issue or anything, just wanted to bring it to everyone's attention. Back to celebrating new years :)

Yeah it is tricky. I agree good faith users should be able to take their names off of things.

Like just an idea but maybe it can remain in the search results, but it can still say [deleted]? So the public can access the public comment section, but the user who posted it doesn't have to have their username attached to it anymore. Because honestly a comment section seems like a community asset, rather than something one user owns.

I'm glad 2021 is over too. Good riddance to it lol. Happy new years!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auld_Lang_Syne

As well as celebrating the New Year, "Auld Lang Syne" is very widely used to symbolise other "endings/new beginnings" – including farewells, funerals (and other memorials of the dead), graduations, the end of a (non-New Year) party, jamborees of the Scout Movement, the election of a new government, the last lowering of the Union Jack as a British colony achieves independence[29] and even as a signal that a retail store is about to close for the day.

lol

Ah right NZ. Your username just reminds of taiwan, it has all the right letters lol. Sucks that they messed it up but at least it's down to omicron now, which isn't very severe of a disease compared to delta and the original.

Are you talking about Taiwan? When did they fuck it up? What happened?

Thanks. Yeah it's odd.

I looked through my top comments in the last year, just do a ctrl+f for "[deleted]" and I see 3-4 threads where the users have deleted the thread (or the username) where I left a comment. So thankfully it's not super common, but I do have to wonder what percent of saidit posts are later deleted soon after... and what percent of those are important stuff like the maxwell thing. It also makes saidit look like we didn't have a big discussion on it, when in fact we did. Definitely seems a bit fishy and strikes me as a weird form of censorship

I was only able to link to it because I had a comment in the thread I could go back and look at. Had I not had this to produce the URL, I don't know how one could find it again. And maybe google doesn't index it in to their search engine then either.

So it basically disappears from the internet unless you already know the direct URL or had a comment in that thread...
