Pandemic Saturday

The pandemic is still getting worse in case you have your head up your ass.  Another record setting week of new infections worldwide (and no, the illuminati is not fudging the numbers to gain control over you).  My test last Monday returned a negative result which thankfully means I am not one of the 1,272,461 new cases reported in the past 7 days.  Unfortunately, Terlingua Ranch seems to have a lot of idiotic Covid deniers that believe just about every stupid conspiracy theory out there.  This one seems to be a favorite of the locals - including the manager of The Little Burro Store.  79 101, 90,0,B

An interesting link John.

I think they could have added Echo Chambers to the list. Today social media algorithms pay attention to what you read and like, and serve up more and more of the same. If people don't like what Aunt Janet or Uncle Bill is saying, they block them. They end up in an echo chamber where only their own views are espoused.

General intolerance could also be added to the list. I have both left and right wing friends. When they come up against something they disagree with, they have all stopped trying to educate or debate. They just call people with different views stupid, and heap scorn on them. I have one left-wing friend who frequently wishes death on anyone she disagrees with, despite thinking of herself as an enlightened nature loving scientist.

Of course - you could re-bundle those thoughts into a Internet or Social Media Conspiracy Theory...

How about this... 2 weekends ago 300 to 500 teenagers attended a beer pong party in Lakeway, a suburb of Austin, and nobody wore a mask. The repercussions are just now showing up.
Idiots Will Be Idiots!

I think now I know why I have been drawn to watchmaking during the pandemic. It is just about the only thing I can control and fix in these times of such uncertainty.

Wow. You've got 5G out there in the boonies? I wish, and I'm miles and miles away in centralish Texas. In my little county, 2 more have died (not nursing homes like the 10 previous ones)and the total actives have doubled in the last few days. And some teenagers are included in the total for the first time. So off we go. Watch repair is a good idea.

Hey, everybody. Want to comment here? Go ahead, and then watch your comment get "disappeared" if John doesn't like it. You must always praise "Dear Leader".

DKM said...

WhyR,

Seems John doesn't like your opinion and you apparently do not like his, what on GOD's green earth are you doing back here???
No, not a question I need an answer to as I already know what your piehole is going to puke out..
Lonely without friends, isn't it....

@WhyR,

This comment section is part and parcel of a private blog.

Just WTF are you whining about?

Just go away troll.

Jesus touched sick people without a mask. Leprosy is deadlier than Covid. He drank wine at Cana without social distancing with the guests. The bible says to fear God, not men, not disease, not bodily death. Fear of things besides God=sin.

Only 99.85% of us will survive this pandemic but I think John may die of hysteria. First the mask, then the vax ID card, then the biometric mark. Your vax will be produced by Bill Gates funded orgs. Bill Gates on epstein island 16 visits via Jeff's plane. Many old people still have too much faith in media and will accept a vax developed by child molester Bill Gates because they are told to. Just like the mask. Cowards and criminals wear masks, not christians.

No mask, don't ask.

When you think the media has you all informed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyfWkRr5N8Q

Take the red pill buddy. Wake up to the scam.

Hey Unknown, "Cowards and criminals wear masks, not christians."
You misspelled Christians You Idiot Loser!
Christian or not God gave most of us common sense.
You do not step in front of a moving bus.
Do not run off a cliff.
If it is freezing out you wear warm clothes.
If a pandemic can kill you wear mask.
If one of your family members caught the Covid you would say 'Why didn't the Dumb Ass wear a mask' or at least that is what the rest of the world would say.

John Wells said...

Unknown...not sure what pill you are taking - but you need to lay off the conspiracy theories and come back to earth. Which of these categories fits you? https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/talking-apes/201801/why-do-people-believe-in-conspiracy-theories

Keep thinking a mask will protect you. Just remember the next time you smell a fart it went through two layers of cloth before it went right up your nose. But yeah, it'll stop a microscopic virus.

I guess I should've stopped reading your blog when your "greenhouse" suffered epic fail ten years ago and became a glorified storage shed instead. Been a downhill slide since. Now all you do is quote bible verses and cuss in the general direction of people who don't agree with your bs covid stance. A senile old guy screaming at clouds in the desert sky.

DKM said...

Unknown,

Well here you are 10 years later reading a blog from a "senile old guy screaming at clouds in the desert sky" even though you say you "should have stopped reading"!!??
Makes me wonder which is worse... Again, no need to spew puke from your piehole... It already means nothing to me as I know how you will try to justify yourself as there are so many sheeples preprogrammed just like you!

Another one of those "I've never lied or stolen anything ever in my whole life" people...

Sheeples.. you just go on believing your government won't lie to you for personal gain and you'll get your socialist republic and you'll even have the greatest ability; to hide your shame from behind your masks.... Can you say Venezuela?

What? you have forgotten already? Hmmmm! Have you even wondered why your kids aren't being taught history like the older generations were? And now that history is being rewritten and that concerns you less than "A senile old guy screaming at clouds in the desert sky" or even the monuments being taken down??? And I'll bet you don't even read the bible... Let me restate this: history, if forgotten, WILL repeat itself just to try to remind you...

Oh just a fun fact: I live in Warren County, Michigan - the so-called hardest hit county in Michigan and I have YET to meet, talk to, or see anybody that has had, known someone who has had (or died) from this "virus"...

One more fun fact: I have yet to wear a mask and so far I am still just as healthy as I was prior to this thing...
Can't give you more proof than that...
I know, you don't believe me because I am not part of your medical community or your government... Sad!

Those that actually "try" to smell farts through masks; would she be a smart feller or a fart smeller??? I'll give you three guesses and the first two don't count..


John,

Been here since before "unknown" and don't think I'm going anywhere unless internet becomes "governed"...
One thing I'd do differently than you... I wouldn't have had a phone line installed or pay for that new wireless they just put in...
Heck, I might have even started screaming at the clouds just for for something to do!! :)

Live long and prosper!

I’m Артур Борис a resident/citizen of the Republic Of Russian. I’m 52 years of age, an entrepreneur/businessman. I once had difficulties in financing my project/business, if not for a good friend of mine who introduced me to Mr Benjamin Lee to get a loan worth $250,000 USD from his company. When i contacted them it took just five working days to get my loan process done and transferred to my account. Even with a bad credit history, they still offer their service to you. They also offer all kinds of loan such as business loans, home loans, personal loans, car loans. I don’t know how to thank them for what they have done for me but God will reward them according to his riches in glory.

A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
