1. The story that the unvaccinated are "Variant Factories" is a lie that must be answered.
Technically, every infected individual is a variant factory, but such a statement is misleading in the extreme...
2. Point mutations occur at random in viruses, all the time, constantly. Most mutations either result in nonviable progeny, or progeny that is no more (and potentially less) harmful. That's > 99.99999% of such progeny.
3. So, it does not matter that there is greater diversity among surviving mutated strains among the unvaccinated. According to Muller's ratchet, selection continues to less harmful survivors, no matter how diverse.
1. Yesterday on @BretWeinstein's podcast, Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA vaccine, told the world that the spike protein is indeed opening up the blood brain barrier. This should lead to a redefinition of both COVID-19 and vaccine adverse events. I will explain...
2. Coronaviruses never previously caused all the kinds of damage we have seen. It seems almost certain now that the spiked protein is itself responsible for much of what we call C19 and also vaccine adverse events.
3. We should then be talking about something like COVID-type-1 and COVID-type-2 illnesses. The SARS-CoV-2 virus causes both, but those that overlap with the vaccines might be defined as the type 2.
I'm "most common masks do very little for an aerosolized virus one-two-thousands the size of the pores" and "there really are trade-offs of health and communication" and "harassing people over this seems crazy".
I'm not "anti-vaxx".
I'm "I'd like to know the long term risks both for my person and also existential risks such as leaked evolutionary pressure that might make this thing go 'Spanish flu' for real this time" and "give me a cost-benefit analysis first" and "kids? Really?!"
There is a strangely organized rumor going around that the AMA passed a resolution recognizing the efficacy of HCQ and calling on a reversal of its suppression. Unfortunately, that resolution was not passed, but I suggest the story is more interesting than that...
When you think about it, the resolution never had a chance of passing. Intuitively, we all know this. The AMA and Pharma are far too intertwined, and further with the government. Suggesting that the resolution could pass would be to suggest there was no opposition to begin with.
But here is the interesting part: Almost nobody, save for the few of us doing broad levels of research on the topic, knew to step in and correct the mistake. What does that mean?
As a consistent third party voter living in a state that wasn't going to swing a close election, I don't vote R or D.
But this is the time to throw weight behind an investigation into the possibility of a stolen election. We must investigate the statistical evidence.
So, let us investigate the statistical evidence broadly and as a community. Carefully and honestly. Benford's law is a clever technique, but there is an underlying reason behind it that should be understood to best apply the fundamental test.
The reason behind it is that population pools grow exponentially, so they move through orders of magnitude at an invariant rate. If we take the logarithm, the results are then linear. Discarding the integer parts, the fraction parts should form a uniform distribution.
1. This thread is a bit of comic relief from the pandemic.
2. Somewhere, out in the Ocean, a beautiful and thriving civilization spans the island of Pandemos. Larger in land size than Australia, you might miss it on a map, er, due to distortions in scale caused by Mercator projection.
3. The lush and resourceful Pandemos has allowed for the Pandemosians to engineer an amazing modern society.
2. If you are unfamiliar with Simpson's paradoxes, you can read up on the basics here. However, the example I present may well teach the concept. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simpson%2…
3. Consider three hospitals with different treatment policies. Perhaps the standard of care (SoC) is uniform, for the sake of simplicity, but the hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) treatment policies are different.
Unfortunately, it's going to be a couple of weeks before I complete my book, #TheChloroquineWars about the strange tale of #Hydroxychloroquine politics during the pandemic. It's not an easy book to write in 10 weeks. So, as a teaser, I'm going to tweet out a full chapter now...

“In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.” --Galileo Galilei
In 1951, Solomon Asch conducted a landmark experiment in which students were asked to match the segment on a card with one of the same length on another card, a total of 18 times.
