Rainy Tuesday musings

It’s raining again here today – that’s about two inches in the last week, a big total for us. I’m thankful for that – the last few years have been dry, dry, dry.


In the “man, we sure are stupid” category, it turns out that the wingnuts now believe that a lot of deaths during the pandemic were due to the vaccines. From Rasmussen:

Nearly half of Americans think COVID-19 vaccines may be to blame for many unexplained deaths, and more than a quarter say someone they know could be among the victims.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that (49%) of American Adults believe it is likely that side effects of COVID-19 vaccines have caused a significant number of unexplained deaths, including 28% who think it’s Very Likely. Thirty-seven percent (37%) don’t say a significant number of deaths have been caused by vaccine side effects, including 17% who believe it’s Not At All Likely. Another 14% are not sure.

It’s amazing how wingnuts will twist facts to fit their conspiracy theories.


Poor Hopey and her job prospects. “We all look like domestic terrorists now.” Yep, you do and you were. You lie down with dogs, you get fleas. And her lack of empathy for those injured during J6, for democracy, is telling.


It’s workout with a trainer day again today. I dread it right up until it’s over, and then I’m very happy I did the work. The mind is a strange master.


I heartily agree with this website’s message. Or, start a Youttube channel about Lego and make $150K+ per year. A very interesting case study.


Shopify is doing their part and then some to tame The Meeting Monster. Interesting…


And finally today, I like this game of comparing first lines of books people are reading. Mine is from Linda Nagata’s somewhat dense book Edges: “Against a starscape, a smudge of white light.”
