One side doing bad things doesn't absolve the other side, but responding to "X is doing bad things right now" with "But Y did the same bad things a while ago" doesn't do anything but make it look like you support X.

X and Y are both bad but X is the current issue. Quit changing the subject.

10 Covid truths health officials failed to inform the public of:

1. It's airborne
2. High-quality universal masking is needed
3. It's not the flu & more than a respiratory illness
4. Long Covid isn't rare & the 3rd leading neurological disorder in the U.S. 🧠

“Palantir Technologies had a secret plan to deepen its relationship with the UK’s National Health Service without public scrutiny.

The US data-analytics company aimed to buy up smaller rivals that already had an existing relationship with the NHS, according to emails and strategy documents seen by Bloomberg. This approach would hopefully allow Palantir to avoid further scrutiny in working with one of the largest depositories of heath data. ”

I wrote up some instructions on how to enable the "Edit button" on your Mastodon instance, if anyone's interested.

Basically edit
1. app/javascript/mastodon/components/status_action_bar.js
2. app/javascript/mastodon/features/status/components/action_bar.js

Uncomment menu.push({ text: intl.formatMessage(messages.edit), action: this.handleEditClick });

Do a yarn run build:production and restart your Mastodon services and that should enable it!

Boost appreciated 🔁

I’m tired, and has little to do with sleep. The lack of COVID information makes it impossible to make informed decisions, and all public indications is that “everything is normal”.

I still don’t think it’s wise to get sick over and over with a disease that affects brain matter, cardiovascular health and likely will reduce healthspan, but I seem to be in the minority.

This is based on Tua Tagovailoa, the quarterback of the Miami Dolphins. He took a big hit back on Sunday (9/24), got up, fell over, and then held his head. The team passed it off as a back and ankle injury, but if if it were, he'd be grabbing them instead of his head. He was allowed back onto the field because it could be described as an orthopedic injury instead of a neurological one and he didn't clearly show any of the "no go" symptoms.

On Thursday, he played and took another big hit. He went into what's known as a "fencing response", which is a "no go" symptom and demonstrates that the player has suffered a brain injury. The medical team strapped him to a backboard and took him to the hospital.

It takes time to recover from one concussion (it's been 5 years since I had one and I'm still not quite right) and having two within a week could have killed him

When players are injured on the field
To their bodies they must yield
Their mindset wants them to try to play
But trainers are who they should obey
This works almost all the time
But sometimes it should be a crime
Tua stumbled and grabbed his head
But they sent him out to play instead
Four days later, more of the same
On a backboard he left the game
"It was a back issue" they first cried
But I think that those bastards lied
I think both were clear concussions
And there should be repercussions
For whose fault it was he was allowed
Again on the field to be plowed
Two concussions in four days
Will send anyone into a haze
And this might not just end his year
But be the end of his career
And when he passes we will see
If he ended up with CTE

This is your periodic reminder that in 1952 Jimmy Carter went inside a malfunctioning nuclear reactor to keep it from melting down, and then he never mentioned it in his political campaigns because he didn’t want to detract from the bravery of the other engineers who went in with him
