Atlas Shrugged


This Atlas guy should have his medical license revoked!! I’m a retired physician … I now!! … “Dr. Atlas isn’t just giving really bad medical advice to the president (sic) of the United States and the public. Dr. Scott Atlas is engaging in stochastic terrorism. What’s “stochastic terrorism?” It’s when you feed fear to the public, aimed at a target, until the people you have riled up engage in terrorism against that target.”

As you may have caught in the update I added to yesterday’s blog, or from my posts on Twitter and Facebook, I did test positive for the coronavirus. Since I made those announcements, I have received an outpouring of positivity from friends, readers, and colleagues. One post alone generated over 600 reactions and over 300 comments. Many people have even offered to bring me food (I rarely turn down food) or just to come by and check up on me, which I guess would be done by standing in the street and shouting up to my apartment. I want to thank everyone for that.

I have also received comments telling me it’s a hoax, or it’s nothing special, or it’s no worse than the flu, that the statistics are lies, that it’s overhyped by Democrats and the media, and assorted blah blah blah bullshit blah blah.

I saw a report…

A Rare Gem in Puerto Bueno: The Endangered Blue Kite Swallowtail


Progress and development? NOT … “In the 1960’s the Blue Kite swallowtail, Protographium marcellinus, would swarm, dashing like blue flashes of light, through the streets of Kingston after its annual emergence. This sight though is sadly gone forever because of the progressive and ongoing loss of its very specialised habitat and breeding needs”

Petchary’s Blog speaks out in favor of the many environmentalists/scientists who have objected to the mining operation in Puerto Bueno, Jamaica, sharing a concrete example of one of the many casualties that would result from mining in the area; specifically in this post, the endangered Blue KiteSwallowtail butterfly. The post features Jamaican entomologist Vaughan A. Turland, co-author ofDiscovering Jamaican Butterflies and their Relationships around the Caribbean.

[. . .] One of these dedicated and learned scientists isVaughan A. Turland, a Jamaican entomologist and Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society of London. He is co-author ofDiscovering Jamaican Butterflies and their Relationships around the Caribbean.Here is what he has written about one precious endemic (meaning: it lives nowhere else in the world) butterfly that lives in the dry limestone forest of Puerto Bueno – the Blue Kite swallowtail.

Many thanks to Vaughan for specially writing…

Cable failures endanger renowned Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico


This realy, really saddens me!! … “”It’s a blow for the telescope that more than 250 scientists around the world were using. The facility is also one of Puerto Rico’s main tourist attractions, drawing some 90,000 visitors a year. Research has been suspended since August, including a project aiding scientists in their search for nearby galaxies.”

Repeating Islands

A report from The Associated Press.

The giant, aging cables that support one of the world’s largest single-dish radio telescopes are slowly unraveling in this U.S. territory, pushing an observatory renowned for its key role in astronomical discoveries to the brink of collapse.

The Arecibo Observatory, which is tethered above a sinkhole in Puerto Rico’s lush mountain region, boasts a 1,000-foot-wide dish featured in the Jodie Foster film “Contact” and the James Bond movie “GoldenEye.” The dish and a dome suspended above it have been used to track asteroids headed toward Earth, conduct research that led to a Nobel Prize and helped scientists trying to determine if a planet is habitable.

“As someone who depends on Arecibo for my science, I’m frightened. It’s a very worrisome situation right now. There’s a possibility of cascading, catastrophic failure,” said astronomer Scott Ransom with the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves…

Don’t Tell Trump He’s NOT RE-ELECTED Today

I was missing Randy. I was wondering where he was. This is new video just dropped … fresh out of the creative mind of the amazing Randy Rainbow.

Randy does it again … at least for me.

I get a reprieve from the ‘dumbfuckery‘ that this ‘so-called presidency‘ is. 

Now we have a full reprieve … that MAN is gone!

NOT PERFECT BUT THANKFUL

I’m my travels through this adventure called life, I’ve been to many places, I’ve had plenty experiences, I’ve learned a lot. And I keep learning.

Yes, I’ve made mistakes, I have learned. I’ve been hurt too.

I am HUMAN indeed.

I’m very thankful about ‘the lot’ I’ve been given. Will always be!

No truer words!! … “This world is but a shadow, it is a carcass, it is nothing, this world is not real, do not mistake this hallucination for the real world.” – more after this!!

—Sigrid Nunez, What Are You Going Through: A Novel (Riverhead Books, September 8, 2020).

Live & Learn

Neither season after season of extreme weather events nor the risk of extinction for a million animal species around the world could push environmental destruction to the top of our country’s list of concerns. And how sad, he said, to see so many among the most creative and best-educated classes, those from whom we might have hoped for inventive solutions, instead embracing personal therapies and pseudo-religious practices that promoted detachment, a focus on the moment, acceptance of one’s surroundings as they were, equanimity in the face of worldly cares. (This world is but a shadow, it is a carcass, it is nothing, this world is not real, do not mistake this hallucination for the real world.) Self-care, relieving one’s own everyday anxieties, avoiding stress: these had become some of our society’s highest goals, he said—higher, apparently, than the salvation of society itself. The mindfulness rage was just another distraction, he…
