I meant the MOCA, the one where 26-30 is normal, and not easy to do. I don't think I've done the MMSE.

You'd better not try the MOCA then, it's tough. I'm thinking something more like Parkinson-Plus. Facial immobility, a common feature of advanced Parkinson's, usually goes along with stiffness and tremor to an obvious degree. But there are a group of Parkinson-like syndromes that allow you to pick'n'mix the symptoms along with prominent cognitive decline. That might fit the bill.

White woman did not have a good reason to brandish her weapon. In Michigan you have to be in fear of personal harm. The white woman made a mistake by getting out of her car. She should have stayed in the car and called the cops. If you are going to carry you have to be more responsible for your behavior than a typical person. I think she will be found guilty and probably just end up with parole. They are also charging the white husband... but I suspect he will be found not guilty.
Whether or not that is true, the press are pushing the white racist line and it's open season on "whiteness". The past four years have been building to this point. The Democrats have demonstrated that they will tell any lie and cross any line for advantage and they don't seem to care how much damage they do. Even the Republicans have been caving to the hysteria. Either people stand up for themselves and refuse to accept the absurd premises of woke activists or they are going to have to get used to being whipped into subservience.
Oddly this time it seems like it is white women who are getting all of the attention. I guess they are next on the list to take down after white men. Most of the recent videos of "racist" behavior are of white women.

Pretty sure calling the cops is a waste of time right now. Still, simply walking/driving away, and not getting drawn into the chimp-out, would've been wise.

At least this one showed good trigger discipline.

The white woman had no reasonable fear of imminent, grave bodily harm. Yes, the black woman was jabbing her long pointy fashion nails into the white woman's face, but the white woman could easily have outrun her. A drunken, peg-legged sailor could have outrun her.

So what caused her to draw? The way she was screaming indicated real fear. IMO, a transference of the resentment and fear that's been building as she, like tens of millions of other whites in America, watch black hoodlums get away with mass mayhem while the Dems and their flying monkeys in MSM incessantly flog whites for not just being sinful in thought and deed, but permanently tainted with the original sin of having been born white.

Incidents like this one will spur the Dems and MSM to turn up the volume on the white-shaming, which will only add fuel to the fire and harden the resentment -- and the resolve to make Dems pay come election day.

Since my mom is struggling with signs of cognitive decline (or rather, I'm struggling with my mom's signs of cognitive decline; she doesn't give a shit), I know a little about this. Biden will probably be cool his first term, even if he has to be pumped full of donepezil. Reagan was probably in early stages of dementia during his last term. Not that I'm saying any of this is optimal. Second term for Biden I don't know...

'White Supremacy' is a synonym for 'Black Inferiority', right?

I mean-- if you believe whites are superior-- then you believe blacks are inferior.


BLM/SJW dogma: "Nice white people" might not alllll be individually racist, but they're "still complicit" in Systemic white supremacy.

correllary: Blacks aren't alllll individually inferior, but they're automatically born into Systemic black inferiority.

It's not their fault, but blacks are inferior to whites.

= Equality can only be achieved by the whites kneeling down to the black's low lowly low low level. (Blacks can't rise up to the white heights.)

...
I only got B's in Algebra, so my math might be wrong. Maybe I screwed-up the Transitive Property or Distributive or something.

Three online storms yesterday make me concerned about the future of humour online, with online mob outrage about jokes leaking into mainstream media and employment matters.

The Irish Times joined in with an online mob who attacked Monty Python star John Cleese for joking about how we Irish spell and pronounce our names.

Deloitte rescinded a job offer to Harvard graduate Claira Janover after she joked on TikTok that she would stab people who say All Lives Matter then tell them that her paper cut matters.

William Shatner blocked David Silverman on Twitter for joking that Shatner should apologise for playing a Nazi in Star Trek in case it upset sensitive people.

The cult of White Guilt demands that all white people must admit they are racist.

Admitting to being racist-- on social media-- is also grounds for having your admission to college revoked:

"Colleges Rescinding Admissions Offers as Racist Social Media Posts Emerge" - The New York Times
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/02/us/r ... sions.html
Liberty Woodley, 17, the 2020 valedictorian of her high school class in Cape Coral, Fla., had accepted an offer to attend the University of Florida. But she will not be enrolling in the fall. The sudden change came after an actress last month called on her more than 500,000 Twitter followers to send her screenshots of hateful social media posts, and one of Ms. Woodley’s old Instagram posts was surfaced.
“I really try so hard not to be a racist person, but I most definitely am, there’s no denying it,” read the screenshot caption, which Ms. Woodley wrote when she was 16. In the post, she also used derogatory language* to refer to two Black students in her class.
Ms. Woodley and her parents could not be reached for comment, but she said in an interview with The Gainesville Sun that she had apologized and had written the post out of anger at a time when she was being constantly bullied. The post first resurfaced last year, prompting death threats. “I am not racist at all, and I am not full of hate,” she said, according to the newspaper.

*
For some students, the offensive social media posts that cost them their admission were made years earlier, as was the case for Kyle Kashuv, a survivor of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., who became an outspoken defender of the Second Amendment and was later accepted into Harvard University. Last June, he announced that Harvard had rescinded its admission offer over a trail of derogatory and racist screeds that Mr. Kashuv wrote as a 16-year-old.
https://d24fkeqntp1r7r.cloudfront.net/w ... ture11.png
"In some cases, the revoked admissions offers are the results of concerted efforts by teenagers who have leveraged large social media followings and created Google spreadsheets to collect and document racist and offensive behavior with screenshots, videos and the names of those involved."

People still exist and will forever - though in a someone less accessible state to those of us that have carried on.

Sorry Pitch, it’s been a ‘process’ eh. I lost my dad in my early 30s. Burst into tears and then died emotionally as a result so I didn’t shed a tear when my equally loved mum passed away a few years later. So let the emotion flow. It’s sounds trite - but parents live on in memory and as you get older, I’ve found solace in a weird sense of comradery.

Commiserations.

My dad just died two hours ago. I'm in shock. It happened so fast. I didn't even get to say goodbye. I've been dreading this day for six years. Now it's here. 3rd of July, 2020. I've been crying so much I can't cry anymore. My dad was everything to me. He was the only one I could talk to about anything and he'd listen. I could give him a hug whenever I felt like it. He'd always know how to make me feel better. Now I feel lost. I don't know what to do.

Oh, I'd hoped and I'd hoped for things to get better but it never did. There was always something else that replaced whatever got fixed and then whatever got fixed came back with a vengeance somewhere down the line. I felt so helpless. I just wanted his last years to be without pain. I just wanted to be there for him. I'm kicking myself for all the times I felt too tired to do things with him. I'm kicking myself for all the times I put off getting his stuff in order from the attic, when he didn't have the strength to get up there anymore. Either it was too late or too early, or I felt hungry or something. Just petty reasons. Still, he understood and was never angry with me. He was the most patient man I ever knew and he never raised his voice.

I love you, dad. You're not in pain anymore. You can rest now.
Really sorry to hear that, Pitchy. He sounds like someone pretty awesome. I'm sure that you also have in you what he had, and that you will bring it to those you care about.

I’m sorry to hear this, Pitch...but at the same time envy your relationship with your dad. You were very lucky to have him, he sounds like a lovely man.

Pitchguest, I'm so sorry to hear that. Don't let small regrets trouble you more than you already are. They are meaningless and everyone has them. Do you have friends/family to talk to?

D is also for diamond push-up.

I’ve been doing 3-4 sets of 20-25 normal push-ups. Working on proper technique etc. Feeling pretty good as I got results.

Then I came across diamond push-ups. Fuck me. :bjarte:

Ummmmmm. This is a thing? :) I take the dog for 6km Bataan death march every day while I’ve been working in lockdown. We re-play the Cold War as he tries to anticipate “walk time” - so he can do his own impression of a chimp out. It’s got to the point where he can hear me try to ninja-change into tracksuit pants two rooms and two doors away.

D is also for VitD:



It’s winter here so I’ve started a daily 4000IU supplement. Is that woo-ish?

Diet is mostly postponed. I've only been able to maintain keto or one-meal-a-day for, like, 2 or 5 weeks at a time-- until I default to girlfriend's shopping & cooking habits.
Bend her to your will and rage against the machine. Got my calcium score (CAC) back today - 0%. That dropped my risk from 6% to 3%. My MD echoed our Pit Resident. “We only worry about High T-cholesterol if your overall risk Is >10%”. Further, psa and crp are both v. low.

I know. We are all gonna die hideous deaths. One day. But in the meantime. Butter. Meat. Eggs. Salmon. Nuts. Cheese. Berries. 90% chocolate. Greek yoghurt. Spices. 17:7 IF. No snacking. It’s a King’s recipe.
"...to say nothing of the dog".

C'mon Brive - that's only half an update.

Most people would just holler, 'hey, you bumped into my daughter, dumbass!' and let it go.

But that wouldn't make for a proper chimp-out, now would it?
