nano wriggler infestation

After 2 or 3 slabs, I have noticed that there are things that I don’t remember eating.
Could this be a sign of an infestation?

It’s the personal invective that pisses me off.

Yes Winston.
Calling people Nazis and “good little Germans” because they exercise a personal choice is out of order.
Allow me to summarise last evening’s shenanigans.
A person started throwing the Nazi word around in relation to anyone who might use a vax passport. Extending this hyper-bowl to the point where vax conscientious objectors were the equivalent of Warsaw ghetto Jews, and anyone using a vax pass was cast in the role of a Nazi box-car loader.
Finally directing this vitriol at someone here who is known to be Jewish and, further, has repeatedly supported the right to choose not to vax.
The ultimate hypocrisy is that this person has spent the last 18 months happily working in an allegedly essential industry and enjoying a degree of freedom not available to others by dint of two pieces of accreditation he carries in his wallet.
To wit, a building industry OHS card and a building industry union card.

Speaking of unrepresentative swill..

Unions have welcomed the Victorian government’s decision to expand vaccine mandates to more than 1 million workers.

The shame is part of the kink for them…

The extensive list includes professional sportspeople, faith leaders and workers in frontline services, hospitality, media and the government. Under the rule, authorised workers must be fully vaccinated by 26 November.

The new deadlines will not apply to Victorian workers in aged care, healthcare, freight, construction and education, sectors that have existing mandatory vaccination timelines.

Guardian Australia understands key unions were not informed of the expanded mandate ahead of the announcement being made on Friday.

Tim Kennedy, the national secretary of the United Workers Union, said the mandate was a matter of “protecting people from Covid-19 and ending lockdowns as soon as possible to protect people’s mental health and well-being”.

Interesting..
Mandatory vaccinations have been opposed by some, including veteran Liberal MP Russell Broadbent, who told the South Gippsland Sentinel-Times he was unvaccinated. Under the Victorian rules, Broadbent would not be able to attend his electorate or ministerial offices after 15 October.

Followed by “please daddy, can i have another”…
The position of the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance, whose members include journalists and sportspeople, is that “workers in our industries should be vaccinated where it is reasonable and safe to do so”.

“MEAA believes that the collective good and the vibrant future of our industries are best served by vaccination and the expert guidance of the Australian medical community.”

The FBI has a conveniently short memory.
One day the truth will come out, but I’m not holding my breath.

I think it’s one of those things that the public is better off not knowing the truth of, especially now we’ve seen how insane people get when they realise just how vulnerable everyone is to people committed to the mass murder of human beings.

I remember listening to reports as they came in live in Australia.

The official story of what happened meant doing away with a great deal of that in order to fix the timelines being sold as official and also scrubbing live reports being given by people hiding while shots we could clearly hear where being fired from & into other areas.

In the end some of the ‘best’ & most trusted ‘debunkers’ had to narrow the whole event to, ‘one mad moment of a madman’, and angrily shout down everyone who dared remember other key details, for raising what was “irrelevant” or the “lies” of “evil conspiracy theorists”.

Ok cats, kittehs and lurkers, here’s a fun memory test for a rainy saturday evening.
What is every WuFlu news item, press conference announcement, meme or rumour which you can recall, which was used to justify the interventions into civil life over the last two years?

-the beta variant is worse
-the gamma variant is worse
-the Indonesians are all dying
-the delta variant is worse
-the delta variant is more virulent
-the delta variant kills more kids
-the delta variant kills more everybody
-we need “doughnut days”
-5/10/14/21/28 days of isolation
-develop “vaccines”
-distribute “vaccines”
-set up infrastructure to handle delicate “vaccines”
-wait wait wait, different “vaccines” do different things
-40-70-80-90-98% of proles need to be vaccinated
-stop down superspreader protests
-stop picnics
-stop supermarket aisle chats
-stop HCQ, it’s a false hope

Like many amateur observers of China, I had assumed that Xi Jinping’s iron-fist policies at home and abroad were a break with the more emollient approach from Deng to Hu Jintao (if you can call the Tiananmen Square massacre emollient), when China seemed to be softening from a totalitarian to an authoritarian regime. Cai Xia makes clear that the fundamental character of the CCP has been unchanging.

The party has merely dropped the facade and dispensed with Deng Xiaoping’s tactical dictum: “bide your time, and hide your strength” (????). It has also acquired the means of totalitarian control that Hitler and Stalin could only dream of, whether face recognition technology or digital tracking through the Social Credit System.

The long list of Xi’s affronts, from the Nine Dash Line to the South China Sea, to the pitiless asphyxiation of Hong Kong, to the intimidation of Australia, to the Uighur camps, are by now well-known, culminating in wolf warrior diplomacy and state-sponsored disinformation on Covid-19.

We are so inured to it that President Xi’s “wall of steel” speech at the 100th birthday party almost seems banal. We know what the party thinks. The Fifth Plenum text setting out China’s strategy until 2035 revives the term “prepare for war” (??), not used for over half a century.

it’s a phrase that the tyrant has been using for years, is it waiting for the right moment?

The issue in the UK is gas prices have hockeysticked. Quadrupled this year. Thus wholesale electricity has also hockeysticked. That’s because they and the EU now have so many gas turbines that when gas runs short and the wind isn’t blowing (eg. now) the whole grid is imperiled. So gas has to be obtained whatever the price.

The wholesale electricity price has been skyhigh, but the price the retailers get has been unchanged. So they’ve all gone bankrupt.

The biggest reason for the skyhigh gas price is that Gazprom had a fire in one of their facilities and gas deliveries to Europe have fallen significantly. Down 75% as of yesterday.

There’s been some political wrangling about the Nordstream 2 pipeline also, since the US still has sanctions on Russia over it. I suspect Putin is using this gas outage at Gazprom to get Biden to overturn the sanctions, with agonized EU and UK support.

We Cats have talked about this for years, and now it’s happening. Schadenfreude. I’m sorry for the poor pensioners in the UK who can’t heat their houses though.

This idea that china is going through mass blackouts or companies are collapsing on mass is bullshit, it’s just staged propaganda to spread financial contagion, just like hospitals full of dying fuckwits and morgues running overtime was propaganda to scare the bejesus out of the west.

Shatterzzz – I’ve read a couple of Benford’s SFs. Timescape, which is a fine and somewhat bleak story where nuclear magnetic resonance spectronomy is used to communicate through time (I did a lot of NMR work at uni). And Artifact, which is about a tiny black hole that was captured by the Minoans on Crete. Good stories. But I haven’t been attracted to his other stuff since then, for some reason.

Right now I’m reading (in between Cat refreshes) a SF called Into the Looking Glass by John Ringo, since I found it sitting in a bookcase unread for years. My bookcases are like that. Ninety pages in and it is good fun, in a chaotic sort of way. 😀

John Ringo- March Upcountry? Couldn’t get into it, I think it’s gone to the paperback dry-composting joint on main st. I think I was trying to cheat my way into reading Exegesis.

On the memories of Coof scares, thanks calli et al. The big three which I think have gone from major headlines to the memory-hole are-
1. The need to deep-clean schools and train stations; because the efil virus can live for fourteen days on stainless steel in a vacuum at zero Kelvin:
2. The need to make a respirator for every household; the ol’ auto plants in Elizabeth were coming out of mothballs, and corporate preeners like Dyson and Musk blew their horns about redirecting their factories, whatever happened?:
3. The R-number brain fart. Whether it was too nebulous and imprecise to stick around, or it was overtaken by “double donut (sic) days” which is obviously more hard sciencey, it bears remembering.

Use a gentle reminder of any, or all, of these three to put noses out of joint at your next dinner party or citizens’ checkpoint.
I put $50 on the table for anyone who could name WA’s “CHO” a week or two ago. The company were all brainy, successful, content and collected catholic school parents- I’m embarrassed to say that they’re probably at the top here for intellectually curious peeps we know- and anyone who was vocal (that is, bar the demure Demoiselle Dalí and me gently kicking some heads) was pro-lockdown, pro-jab, it’s-a-once-in-a-million-years-freak-deadly-virus-which-our-wonderful-pollies-have-got-bang-to-rights-in-their-sights, and forward in saying so.
Kept the $50.

a SF called Into the Looking Glass by John Ringo

First of a good series.

I just re-read Ilium/Olympos by Dan Simmons. It’s a well travelled theme whereby advanced humans reinvent themselves as Gods and/or in this case Shakespearean characters from The Tempest, something one of the best S-F movies, Forbidden Planet also did. Simmons 2 volume opus is a tour de force and he throws in the battle of Troy for good measure.

Lord of Light (and the Amber series) by Roger Zelazny is possibly the best example of humans turning themselves into Gods, in this case Hindu ones. But Simmons’ effort is its equal.

Forced Vaccination Was Always the End Game

Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president, National Vaccine Information Center, describes the move toward authoritarianism in U.S. public health policies during the COVID-19 pandemic, which threatens civil liberties and the human right to informed consent to medical risk-taking.

Thanks Rosie. Painful for the owners. I wonder if insurers will insure them? Maybe they dare not reject EVs because of the political and social pain they’d get from the woke.

These incidents are rare now because EVs are rare. If everyone were driving them it’d be a fireman’s nightmare due to simple statistics.

The replier who said CO2 is good for electrical fires is wrong since these fires are more like solid fuel rocket engines – the fuel and oxidizer are both intimately mixed together, separated only by a thin polymer barrier. Once heat breaks down the polymer literally nothing will stop the fire since you cannot separate the fuel from the oxidizer.

Sorry to start the day off with bad news:

Nuclear Armed Iran More Dangerous Than North Korea

The Iranian regime is nearing an atomic milestone in acquiring nuclear weapons. In the meantime, the Biden administration does not seem to have a clear agenda to prevent the mullahs from going nuclear. Even the New York Times reported that the Islamic Republic is “within roughly a month of having enough material to fuel a single nuclear weapon”.

Ever since the Biden administration assumed office, the Iranian regime has been accelerating its enrichment of uranium to “near weapons grade”. As the International Atomic Energy Agency pointed out:

“Since 23 February 2021 the Agency’s verification and monitoring activities have been seriously undermined as a result of Iran’s decision to stop the implementation of its nuclear-related commitments”.

I also remember Googlery saying how much he was enjoying some red wine or other at only $29 a bottle.
Only to be told it is $15 in Dan Murphy’s.

Dot, for a long time my view has been that The Sopranos was the bookend to the genre.

“Dom Perrottet “

Perrottet will likely be useless however I wouldn’t mind seeing him get up as leader just to annoy the anti-Catholic maggoty activists that infest Twitter…..all because Dom is a devout Catholic and happily married with six (?) children.

Speaking of maggots, I’m suddenly reminded of someone. I await a Grace Tame announcement on Perrottet however Tame would be well advised to choose her words carefully when tweeting about Perrottet and his family.

So the NZ “Sportwoman of the Year” is a man.
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

The sportsperson concerned probably feels the exactly same way:

Transgender athlete Laurel Hubbard says she wants to ‘descend into graceful obscurity’ after finishing LAST in the women’s weightlifting at the Tokyo Olympics

The 43-year-old, who transitioned in 2012, bombed out on Monday after failing to register a single valid snatch lift.

‘I’m looking forward to my career as a pub quiz question or a trivial pursuit card,’ she told a roomful of reporters last night.

So, probably not fair to mock her/him. More a case of wondering why the farkingfark the University of Otago gets to nominate the winner.

(Valerie Adams was unavailable for comment.)

Is Tame the new Battie? I call them media anti heros. So so many of our social and economic problems are thanks to the lying, propagandizing, marxist media.

“So, probably not fair to mock her/him. “

There’s no “her” in Laurel Hubbard. Laurel Hubbard is a HE. An adult human male. And my sympathy lies with the women who missed out on a place in the NZ Olympic team because the woke selectors chose a man pretending to be a woman over biological women. It’s a disgrace.

I think Tame is worse than Battie.

The ABC was quick to point out that Perrottet and Stokes, the Anglican father of three, both voted against the abortion legislation.

Both men are bad, very bad.

Our future if we don’t stand up.

New Forced Control: NYU Langone and other Hospitals in New York and Long Island are Forcing that if the Parent is not VAXXED they will not release Babies From NICU to Parents or after birth as per CDC Guidelines. You Need to Show VAX-Passport to see your own New Born Baby.

I think we can all now agree that there is no end to this evil. There is no way to placate this monster.

Just catching up a bit before I have to go out. Just wanted to repost this from Indolent last night.

It warrants some morning prominence. If true, this is absolute bastadry.

It’s worth remembering the leaked papers from the early years of the bLIAR bomb dropper filth administration- ‘rub the rights nose in diversity’. That’s what this trans poison is all about. Make normal believe say they believe something absurd.

Another Stan Grant tour de force:

Macron’s submarine spat is a reminder of why Australia ought to be getting closer to France, not alienating it

France led Europe in devising an Indo-Pacific strategy. Until recently, the EU had no plan for the region. Remarkable when you consider how our neighbourhood will determine peace and prosperity for the 21st century. Now, the 27 EU foreign ministers have signed on to a security blueprint.

The EU is cautious. There is no talk, though, of confronting or containing China. Where the US names China as a “strategic rival”, European nations prefer the word “inclusivity”. They want to incorporate China — it is all about cooperation.

So Stan would prefer us to depend on a submarine supplier with an overarching national strategy of ‘inclusivity’ and ‘cooperation’ with China. Because “The EU has a lot at stake; China has surpassed the US as the European bloc’s biggest trade partner.

To lesser intellects that would be a signal to run away, run away.

Wow, Cooper Cronk is calling for a Panthers blowout tonight.
He’s one of the genuine good footy brains.
I wonder if Channel Nein will have Andrew Johns in the commentary box or will they restrict him to 30 second grabs at half time.
Tonight will be the fourth time this year I’ve watched FTA tv (but I fell asleep during origin 3, so really only 3 & and half).
