I just want everyone to note that un-vaxinated humans are still humans.

Whenever politicians or the mainstream media put people into categories, the whole point is to keep people fighting with each other so that we ignore the ongoing crimes of the ruling class.

f*ck that noise - don't let those assholes put you into categories.

And boy o boy, that strategy is working to perfection.

Jesus Christ, does anyone answer the phone anymore? Return messages? Provide any level of service?

Forgot about finding someone to come over to fix anything, I can't even get someone to answer the phone.

So I searched about the lockdown protests in Australia right now. Some stuff about 2020 protests and current rising cases came up.

I search on duckduckgo and the first results are about the massive protests going on right now.

Google is a threat to humanity. The amount of power that they wield and how they shape what we see and what they choose to show us is absolutely frightening.

Building these, even better than they do, at this price point doesn’t seem very difficult for someone wanting a business idea and has some room to work.

Noah Kagan started: Room. Office pods.


Pretty cool idea.

Want to have a laugh?

Turn on Italian subtitles in the settings and have YT auto-translate them. The translation is accurate except for the "don't" at 0:33, it should be a "do".

Random question: what do you do when a homeless, young, healthy guy begs you for money or food in the supermarket parking lot? Do you ever give them something, say no, lie that you'll buy them food only to hope you'll sneak out without them seeing you (lol), ask the supermarket employees to call the police?

I always think that if they're healthy and young, they can easily find some kind of work. So by giving them stuff I essentially sponsor their laziness and make their lives even worse (because if they keep getting stuff, they'll never stop begging). I can understand helping out an elderly or sick person though even then, often it's unfortunately a part of a gang scheme, not just a single person struggling.
When someone asks me for money, I offer him money . Money for work. Come to my house and work for me and get money.
I never had one coming to my house btw.

I don't trust sunscreen either. I haven't used it in a while. I don't mind going outside and enjoying the sun. I haven't gotten sunburnt in a while. Granted, I've done it gradually. Started with 10 or so minutes and then worked my way up, since I used to be pale as milk. And not very healthy. Now I can stay in the sun for as long as I want :cool:

Sometimes I wonder if all the products we use to wash ourselves are necessary. Especially hair shampoo. All of the nasty chemicals in it can't be good for our hair.

I know I wash my hair less frequently than most of my friends. And I'm the only one who isn't balding, lol. I'm 29 for reference. Of course it could be genetic, but it's an hypothesis that's been on my mind recently.

Why dont you trust sunscreen? the fact that your skin doesn't burn doesn't mean that damage isn't done...
Sun is the #1 aging factor of the skin.

Pretty cool post and image from Ed Mylett:

You see in life, exactly what you’re looking for.

You will find what you were deeply convinced of.

Will you SEE the opportunities and the blessings that surround you?

Or will you see all of the obstacles and roadblocks?

Not trusting was the wrong choice of words. I just don't feel like I need for it. My skin (and body) is doing much better now that I ditched it compared to the past when I used to use sunscreen.

Naturally, other things have changed in my life, so it's hard to tell if it was sunscreen's fault. Maybe? Probably only a small fraction of it?

Since I'm doing fine without, I don't see the need for it. I don't like applying chemical things on my body. Is an aging skin a big problem?

You're a bit late to realize this ... I stopped using them 6 years ago.

They only show you results or "research" that falls within the approve narrative.

So any investigation about anything won't give you a wide-lens view with diverse perspectives, they'll give you the narrow view within the approved box.

And the ultimate irony is, wasn't their tag line "Don't be evil"? -- I can't think of a more evil company.

While I'm not a big Chomsky fan, he does hit on some of what's going on today.

This is G00gle in a nutshell.

"The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum - even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there's free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate." ~ Noam Chomsky

"Nobody is going to pour truth into your brain. It's something you have to find out for yourself." ~ Noam Chomsky

"The general population doesn't know what's happening, and it doesn't even know that it doesn't know." ~ Noam Chomsky

"The key element of social control is the strategy of distraction that is to divert public attention from important issues and changes decided by political and economic elites, through the technique of flood or flooding continuous distractions and insignificant information." ~ Noam Chomsky

Bullshit. Eat well, drink enough water, sleep well, exercise, then gradually increase how much sunlight you get daily and you'll be able to spend as much time in the sun as you'd like.

Sunscreen is another instance of symptom treating snake oil and like most other modern "cures", it is about making money, not helping people.

My Western European blood would dictate that I should be pale, but I have olive skin and I don't burn in the sun - I just get tanner.

LA Fitness said, “we can only cancel your membership Monday through Friday”. What kind of bullshit is that?

Has anyone tried the 1/5/10 strategy recently? Did it work? Just curious.

The fact that you're asking about a strategy with a 10 year time horizon in a book that was released 6 weeks ago tells me that you don't really understand how the strategy works.
