Derelict

Harvard’s Top Astronomer Believes Aliens Tried to Contact Us in 2017. In his new book, Dr. Avi Loeb argues ‘Oumuamua, which passed by Earth in 2017, wasn’t a comet but rather alien technology.

Think it is somewhat possible it was a dead spacecraft. If we’d had better space technology, we could’ve intercepted it and found out for sure. It just had so many unusual characteristics that would be hard to get naturally — though not impossible.

We should’ve been out there, looking at it, not cowering on this rock.

Flipping

If the Senate does flip Dem — which looks likely — then prepare to hear millions upon millions of excuses about why poor wittle Baby Biden has no power, no power at all, and how he is still somehow blocked by Republicans at every turn despite his party having control of both chambers of Congress.

It’s guaranteed, and the “liberals” will be apologizing and excusing his multitudinous failures with no memory that just a few months before they were decrying the vast and singular sovereignty held by Trump.

Dent In

Hate me all you like, but I don’t see much difference between declaring yourself Spanish or German and declaring yourself a man or a woman.

Why do so many people so readily accept “arbitrary” in some places culturally, and not others? I’d argue that “Spanish” or “German” or any nation-based identity is far more discretionary than gender, even.

But we must pretend as others pretend, or we are condemned.

Flu Out

She’s 38 and healthy.

It’s not the fucking flu, ya numpties. And many people (looks like around 10%) will have long Covid and be in the medical system for years. It also seems to cause myocarditis leading to long-term heart damage in a significant portion of those who contract it, as well as lung and neural damage.

Not. The. Motherfucking. Flu.

Sense Or?

When the left was cheering so very loudly for censorship, it was always inevitable it’d be used against them the most assiduously. This was as predictable as effect of a nuclear explosion on a squirrel.

What were those mooks thinking?

Escape Situation

Did the Coronavirus Escape From a Lab?

What happened was fairly simple, I’ve come to believe. It was an accident. A virus spent some time in a laboratory, and eventually it got out. SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, began its existence inside a bat, then it learned how to infect people in a claustrophobic mine shaft, and then it was made more infectious in one or more laboratories, perhaps as part of a scientist’s well-intentioned but risky effort to create a broad-spectrum vaccine. SARS-2 was not designed as a biological weapon. But it was, I think, designed.

At first, I discounted this. Now I believe it about 80%. It seems most likely to me. It’s no accident that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was right at the heart of the initial outbreak, and how vociferously both the Chinese and other researchers denied the validity of this speculation.

Unfortunately, I lack the skill to examine the virus and its genetic sequence enough to determine myself either way, and it’d take me maybe a year to obtain this capability. So, not worth it.

But I suspect this was at first a natural virus that was being used in research and then somehow escaped. Nothing else makes sense when examined in toto.

Ad Libitum

Yep, a buncha CIA-supporting, warmongering, prudish crybabies. “Liberals.” What an utter corruption and wastes of space.

Trade You

LOL, where’d they find this dipshit? Of course many people look down on the trades.

Try this: see how an upper middle class or striving-to-be upper middle class family reacts when their son or daughter tells the parental units that their ambition is to be an HVAC tech or a plumber rather than a lawyer or an HR specialist, etc. I’ll tell you, the reaction will not be pretty.

A friend of mine in the UK was dating what there is called a “joiner” but here would be called a carpenter. Her parents were enraged that she was dating someone “below her station.” Her friends were appalled. Same would be true in the US, just with somewhat different class connotations.

He turned out to be a gobshite, but not because he was a joiner.

Glower Power

The elite and wannabe-elite left believes this because love and sex are, for them, actually about power. That’s how they see it and that’s the use to which they put those human experiences. They can’t imagine it could be for or about anything else.

That 98%+ of the world does not and never will think this way about any of it does not and never will occur to the elite and wannabe-elite left.

That’s why they got so incensed when Warren Ellis slept with a bunch of women without keeping what they saw as his end of the bargain: he did not fairly trade power and advancement for sex, so he was branded as an abuser. This, in the liberal mind, is the abuse.
