Sunday Rant – 4722


Joe’s Comment – Another week of premature cold with snow.  Decimating.
Self reflection and doubt are two moods this early Winter weather brings.
Plus a left pivot accompanied by a loud click-crunch in my right knee has brought the mighty to his other knee.  Damn!  Buggered knees are a pox…..
Lots of muttering and argument with the 37 idiots, morons, and retards in my head.  Supplementing vitamin D3 @ 4000 I.U. with a C kicker.
I never get a flu.  Haven’t had a cold for years.
Must be the carnivore diet.
Despite encouragement and self motivational energy of heroic dimension, I’d like to hibernate until April.
Gotta clear out the shop to load it with winter projects.
Aiming higher indeed…..
Great Expectations might be my Winter theme –

COVID Feedback

After Effects of COVID Vaccines
The data coming from funeral directors and parlors is thought provoking and frightening.
The entire modus of keeping records, gathering data, and statistical analysis of such is to approximate risk management.
The objective of risk management is to reduce horrendous surprises that make life more difficult or dangerous.  Or end life altogether.
Joe and I ask whether cause and effect is now considered politically incorrect.
We also maintain that “money” is only fiscal wealth; it is an avatar representing wealth.  The value of money flows and ebbs.  Does that mean wealth flows and ebbs?  We say no, “real” wealth does not.
The actuarial folks at any insurance company or statisticians worth their salt can make a best guess of what is happening.  At the least, they would notice an anomaly, give it further scrutiny, and analyze future impact.
That is risk management.
Where is the risk management with COVID?
Out of sight is not out of mind:

Dr. Robert Malone
The good doctor has a few things to say about Bill Gates and his involvement (some say meddling) in pharmacy and medicine.
Specifically COVID and vaccinations.
And money.
Lots and lots of money……
He also talks about the world-wide response to COVID, talks about freedom, talks about the fate of humanity.
What in the world is the world coming to?
Dr. Malone is a hero:


Mental Health and Diet
Dr. Ken Berry and Dr. Georgia Ede take the time to discuss the effect of diet on mental health.
Joe asks, can it be true that the old adage “you are what you eat” is a literal truth?
Low carb, high fat, no processed food, few vegetables, no fruit is a good start:

Dr. Ede continues to promote a healthy proper human diet (PHD h/t Dr. Berry) despite constant push-back from established government and big business.
Nutrition science needs to go into overdrive and catch up with the needs of humans.
The following video is titled “The Mainstreaming of Nutritional Mythology”.
All those myths about saturated fat being bad, about meat causing heart attack, about fiber being essential, about vegetables, fruits, and nuts supply all nutritional needs…. all these claims are unfounded myths.
Who originated and promoted these myths?
Joe and I invite you to watch and learn:


Joe’s Garage

Brittany Force
The top fuel title for 2022 goes to Brittany Force.
It is her second top fuel title.
She has the top 10 records set in top fuel.
What an amazing racing family!:

Data Transmission
Joe and I remember our first Internet connection way long ago in Oyama BC.
It was a dial-up type modem over regular telephone infrastructure.
Maximum speed was 56 Mb but never achieved.
You know, a minute or two to download a picture.
That was 25 years ago.
From the Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden) and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) comes news of data transmission rates up to 1.8 Pb/s!  Article here, and here, and here.
In other words, one million billion bits per second.
Fast fact – that is twice the total global Internet traffic presently occurring at any moment today – from a single source!!!
Current optical transmission is single mode source – the laser is operating at a fixed frequency output.  To match this speed would require a thousand devices.
How the higher speed is managed is by using multiple frequency output.
This was accomplished by using an optical chip that multiplies the laser output into a number of frequencies.

Texas Beeworks
This lady is amazing.
Her name is Erika Thompson, and she is the principal of Texas Beeworks.
Joe and I don’t fear bees, but we would be a tiny bit nervous picking up a handful of buzzing busy bodies.
Joe likes the cut of her jib:

Sunday Rant – 4622


Joe’s Comment – The weather threw a spanner into the works this week.  The ground is frozen.  The snow is a foot deep.  I’m moderately pissed that the weather gods didn’t bless us with a mild Autumn up to the first day of Winter.
Here’s how I think – if Winter comes early and stays, all you have to look forward to is more of the same.  A brief warming (the Okanagan version of a Chinook in Calgary) is accompanied by anxiety that the snow and cold are definitely in the future.  March is the change month, when any snow or cold is grudgingly endured because by mid April the weather breaks with the first month of Spring.
Hence the above memes.
They both made me snort.
Cold weather and snow and ice are not part of my good times philosophy.
I’m easily distracted, procrastinate endlessly, and complain when appropriate.
Project completion tends to zero.
Social graces, of which I have a bare minimum, reach the bottom of the barrel.
Today, Sunday, was sunny but cold.
April is a long way off.
I have to pee…..


Quick Dick McDick
QDMcD is on the road with personal appearances ’til the end of the month.
He took the time to trash Turdeau and his government.
Joe likes QDMcD for his pure country Canadian self:


Elon Musk on Population
Overall, the birth rate for all of humanity (best estimate) is dropping precipitously.
There are very good reasons to believe that we may be living in a time where the most human beings alive at once is now and may never be exceeded in the future.
Elon has nine children.
A man who stands behind his philosophy:


Neil Oliver
Mr. Oliver makes an interesting connection between Egypt in 1400 BC and today.
His warning is that even though the tyranny of today seems ensconced, it will not live past the demise of those who brought it.
Joe says that’s not entirely comforting.
Joe and I wonder if the “brown shirts” will be coming door to door in our lifetime:


Joe and I squirm uncomfortably at the idea of a fungus taking over our life.
Call us callow about the ways of the world if you will.
If life is a recruitment, we didn’t sign up for this!
We are quite willing to take our chances with wolves and bears and snakes and such – our mental acuity will compensate for our physical shortcomings.
And, there is also run like hell or hide inside or shoot to kill.
The very concept of tiny little life forms manipulating Joe and me like some sort of giant meat puppet makes us gag.
Cook all your food!
Eat meat!
Don’t eat insects or cats!:


Health News

Anthony Chaffee
Dr. Chaffee thinks plants are out to kill you.
No, not YOU specifically.
But definitely you if you try to eat them.
How does this calculate?
It seems that plants, unlike animals, cannot exhibit “fight or flight”.
That is, they can’t take a high speed hike if they are threatened.
They can fight.
How they do it is with a chemical cornucopia of poisons, toxins, and various organic/inorganic substances that may wound or kill the poor schmuck gnawing on the plants deliciousness.
Joe says damned if this young whippersnapper doesn’t make perfect sense!:

Dr. Peter McCullough is being systematically canceled for his resistance to the COVID jabs

Seasonal Music

There is one line in this magnificent music by Santana (featuring Rob Thomas) that means the world to Joe and I (considering the current weather) –
Man, it’s a hot one
Like seven inches from the midday sun
The rest of the song is an anthem about attaining the love of a certain woman.
The loss of Summer still stings…..
Joe and I would settle for a foot or two from the midday sun.
You know…. toasty….
Just sayin’:

Joe and I have been mesmerized by the flute playing of Jerry Eubanks of the Marshall Tucker Band.
Here’s a good example:

A young guitarist named Luke McQueary plays with Kelley’s Heroes.  Here’s there version of Ghost Riders in the Sky.
Joe says Mr. McQueary is the Stevie Ray Vaughn of rockabilly:

Origins of Precision
From an incredibly interesting website, Machine Thinking, is a video that traces the attempt to standardize measurement of distances over the centuries.
Joe and I are speechless.
Accuracy to a millionth of an inch?
Christ on a Moped, we feel amazing if we manage +/- a thousandths:


Demo Man
Nothing better to cheer up a down in the dumps weather broken Canadian than a demolition video, starring lots of big structures and lots of high explosives!
Joe and I couldn’t be trusted with detonating materials at the best of times.
In an early winter situation such as this week in our hometown, we’re unstable just thinking about blowing things up:

When Joe and I were kids, a “sleeper” car was a wolf in sheep’s clothing.  A typical sleeper would be an unassuming family sedan with nothing out of the ordinary showing it may not be stock.  Street cred, you know…..
The following video is the finale of a build by PowerNation, a ’77 Ford Granada turned into a sleeper with over 500 hp at the rear wheels!
Complete with vinyl roof and opera windows:

Sunday Rant – 4522


Joe’s Comment – Snow and wet this week.  Projects scattered all over the 1.25 acres of paradise I call Droveria.
Tools in the snow and clay mud.
Summer chores abandoned.
Autumn chores hastily ignored….. (gotta shut off the outside water taps!) (never did rake the leaves) (6 foot weeds still need wacking)
Well, you win some, you loose some…..
I am the King of Procrastination!
Only 7 more Sunday Rants this year.
Time flies faster every year.
The hope of an Indian Summer lasting ’til New Year is dashed.
Next hope in my infinite series is no precipitation ’til then.
Another hope is temperatures above zero.
I am the Don Quixote of Hope (not the city).



Quick Dick McDick
An update on QDMcD’s public appearances in the next few whiles (thank you Donald), plus a short on how to farm snow.
Short but sweet:


COVID Still Again

The following video is a preview of a Stew Peters production titled “Died Suddenly”.
Some horrific scenes in the trailer.
The full video will be released on November 21st, 2022.
Joe and I will be sure to watch and comment:

Neil Oliver on COVID Aftermath
Mr. Oliver captures the amazement us “Pure Bloods” feel when the crazies suggest they should be forgiven for their misdeeds during the so-called pandemic.
Joe and I agree with Mr. Oliver.
Let justice be done.
It is time for an end to action without consequence.
The sheer gall of the tyrannical progressive left leaves us speechless.
How can this be resolved if those responsible are left to do it again, whenever the next mass hysteria presents an opportunity?
Mr. Oliver, like Joe and I, will never forget.
Nor will we forgive:


Ukraine (+NATO) vs Russia
There is a man who posts to Ub2b named Gonzalo Lira.
Joe and I think he speaks with some authority about the situation in Ukraine.
The lighting of a cigarette seems a hallmark of his videos, along with a Cheshire cat grin:


Stefan continues his good work, observing world events and commenting from his perspective.
Joe and I watch Stefan every day he releases a new video.
We improve our Weltanschauung with his input:

Dr. Robert Cywes
We don’t need no stinkin’ proof!
Do we?
Well, yes, when making a point, proving a theorem, or establishing a truth, it is helpful to have evidence supporting your argument.
The good doctor provides ample proof; enough to make you think hard.
And give new meaning to “You Can’t Go Home Again“, the Thomas Wolfe novel.
Meaning we humans weren’t exactly those humans, these animals weren’t exactly those animals, and modern plants didn’t exist!
Why not invest a few minutes and get a great big whopping cognitive disconnect, compliments of Dr. Cywes:

A quote from Mr. Wolfe’s book:
You can’t go back home to your family, back home to your childhood … back home to a young man’s dreams of glory and of fame … back home to places in the country, back home to the old forms and systems of things which once seemed everlasting, but which are changing all the time – back home to the escapes of Time and Memory.
Joe and I speculate that humanity is encapsulated in a time-space anomaly that is one directional only.  Almost as if time exists outside of time-space.
What we’ve gathered from the book and Dr. Cywes is our diet isn’t exactly what it was (refrain – The Old Gray Mare):

In summary, the old gray mare ain’t what she used to was.
Nor is humanity.
Evolution is slow and fast and undetectable and blatantly obvious.

Stella URS 100
What in the world is this?
A beast!
The URS 100 is a remote controlled mower/mulcher that can operate on a slope as steep as 55°.
Joe says a herd of URS 100 remotely controlled by a computer program would be a fearsome clearing team:

Artificial Intelligence
Who are the good guys?
The following two videos from Digital Engine may cause slight anxiety.
There are advocates of AI, and there are “The Sky Is Falling” reactions from AI’s detractors.
Joe would love to have a robot helper.
Joe and I would not like to fight against robots.
Joe says that pesky human instinct to be the destroyer before you are destroyed will insure that somebodies, somewhere, are working on being there first.
A strange world is here now!:

There’s more!:

The other side of the coin is what the combination of AI and robots can do to make life easier for humanity:

Joe and I see AI and robots as an opportunity to usher Heaven on Earth.
As per Ms. Belinda Carlisle:

Smart Animals (Not Humans)
After the above AI videos, more pressure from smart non humans.
There is a lot of competition among the living.
Joe and I think the title is misleading.
We are not shocked, nor do we think IQ is the metric of measure.
Very entertaining video from WATOP:

Powerstroke Help has been a source of info for Joe since we bought our 2006 F350 about 6 years ago.
In this video, Bill and Mike instruct anyone watching how to inspect a Ford Powerstroke for issues.
Joe and I like our 6.0L Powerstroke.
