The UK is a case-study in fear-mongering about ICU capacity:
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/1 ... ents-show/
Hospital intensive care no busier than normal for most trusts, leaked documents show
Update seen by Telegraph shows capacity tracking as normal for beginning of November, with usual numbers of beds available
....
An NHS source said: "As you can see, our current position in October is exactly where we have been over the last five years."

The new data shows that, even in the peak of the Covid outbreak in April, critical care beds were never more than 80 per cent full.

Although there has been a reduction in surge capacity since the first wave, with the closure of the emergency Nightingale Hospitals, there is still 15 per cent spare capacity across the country – fairly normal for this time of year.
....
Commenting on the new data, Professor Carl Heneghan, director of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine at the University of Oxford, said: "This is completely in line with what is normally available at this time of year. What I don't understand is that I seem to be looking at a different dataset to what the Government is presenting.
....
"Everything is looking at normal levels and free bed capacity is still significant, even in high dependency units and intensive care, even though we have a very small number across the board. We are starting to see a drop in people in hospitals.
....
But the leaked documents also show that no intensive care units are in Covid-19 Pandemic Critcon levels above two, and the majority are at 0, meaning they are operating as normal.

Critcon levels three and four are enacted during a "full stretch" and "emergency", when other wards need to be used for critical care. But 146 units out of 222 (65 per cent) are still at "Critcon 0", which is defined as "business as usual" by the NHS.

Just 29 units (13 per cent) are at "Critcon 1", defined as the usual impact of a bad winter. And only 19 (eight per cent) are at "Critcon 2", described as a "medium surge". Twenty-eight units have not reported their position.

Speaking to the science and technology committee on Monday, Prof Whitty accepted that the number of struggling hospitals was "small, and we want to keep it that way".
....
Dr Daniels also said figures show that far fewer patients now need ventilation (33.9 per cent as opposed to 72.1 per cent) and fewer are developing multi-organ failure.

The chief executive of NHS Wales said on Monday that the number of Covid-19 patients in Wales needing critical care is less than half what it was during the peak of the virus, despite rising cases.

Dr Andrew Goodall said early intervention by doctors, aided by increased testing and improvements with oxygen therapies, meant that demand on intensive care units and mortality rates were lower compared with April.

Nowt but a sniffle.
Are you _sure_ those 16,000 people are in Intensive Care _due_to_ Covid-19 ?

Rather than being admitted to Intensive Care for all-sorts-of reasons, but incidentally testing-positive for Covid-19.

Was this NZCity.co.nz article your source for that stat?
https://home.nzcity.co.nz/finance/artic ... ?id=322850

Please be advised-- that article is full of alarmism and omissions.

For one thing-- it portrays American hospitals as bursting at full capacity.

No mention, however, of the recent changes in how the available-capacity of ICU beds is counted.

If no staff is currently assigned to an ICU bed (because it's empty) then that bed is counted as not-existing.
Hospitalizations have been increasing, but the change is also due to revisions in how hospitals report the numbers.

MARC spokeswoman Amy Strange said that in October, the federal system used to report data removed pediatric ICUs from its total counts. Children make up only a tiny number of COVID-19 patients who need intensive care.

A month ago, Kansas City had a total of 994 intensive care unit beds, as listed on the MARC dashboard. The dashboard currently lists 534.

The ICU counts reinforce assertions by hospital doctors that area hospitals have been running low on space for patients as hospitalizations have risen.

Fewer standard hospital beds are listed by MARC as well. A total of 6,216 hospital beds were listed for the metro one month ago, according to MARC. The total listed on Wednesday stood at 5,806.

Strange said the numbers can vary somewhat from day to day based on when hospitals report. Bed numbers can also fluctuate due to staffing, and just over a third of area hospitals say they expect staffing shortages in the coming week.

MARC's hospital bed and ICU bed numbers reflect only those that have staff assigned to them, which aligns with federal reporting definitions.

Thanks all. I good night was had by all. A blue box from Tiffany and Co may have been involved.

I’m lucky to be in that position.

A couple of weeks ago I had dinner with 11 former co-workers all redundant from a mid size professional association. Two had just been made redundant from their new jobs in a double flip.

My youngish nephew has been told his hitherto high-flying progression in logistics with a big tobacco company was over. The role will be gone in March.

A good friend in engineering completed a difficult long term job in the countryside and then got canned with no redundancy for not wearing a hair net in the bakery. Company in financial difficulty and didn’t want to fork out a payout for a 55 year old.

My brother in law, who earns between 200-300K in HR/IR was told on Friday that someone new and cheaper was starting on Monday. Given his 7 weeks notice payment. No redundancy. 53 years old. Despite the wage he’s still renting as he missed the Sydney property boom.

All this in a couple of months. :bjarte:

Calling Covid a 'hoax' doesn't work, because it sounds-like you're denying any person ever died from any-such disease.

So we gotta find a magic bullet word with skull-penetration power. Covid is a 'pretext'. Covid is an 'excuse'. Covid is a 'trojan horse'. Covid is a diversion, distraction, deception, trick, scam, pickpocket, coup, hocus-pocus, optical illusion... card trick

Wisconsin makes Trump pay for the cost of a recount. This is what his money buys...
https://media.thedonald.win/post/IG71xRSp.jpeg


Which-- in my mind-- dovetails into this episode of the Free Man Behind The Wall podcast.
https://youtu.be/xAGPeVxEYEk

The guest (Curtis Yarvin aka 'Mencius Moldbug') and the host (Pete Quinones aka 'Mance Rayder') are both capable of blowing-minds, but also capable of sneering down on the folly of normies-- while huffing jars of their own farts.

The content of this episode is good mind-blowing stuff. But I wonder if the presentation is fart gas. Maybe the only-reason I have any idea what they're saying-- is I've collected enough puzzle pieces-- from their other podcasts.

So-- I'll try to TLDR the good stuff:

Yarvin sez a 'sovereign' ruler is the person with the power to override The Rules (written and unwritten).

Trump advertised himself as-if he would exercise rule-breaking sovereignty: 'Drain the swamp', 'Build a wall', 'Bring Back Jobs', 'Make America Great Again'. Trump did upset the business-as-usual applecart, just by winning his party's nomination & getting elected & pissing on the status-quo news media consensus. But Trump was also too willing to appoint swamp creatures to key posts-- and allow business-as-usual to continue in The Swamp. When Trump declared 'off with their heads' the Deep State did not comply. And Trump reacted to their non-compliance with restrained dueling. Not a dramatic internal purge.

Yarvin quotes someone saying "my least-favorite German generals are the ones who march and battle all the way to the Rubicon-- and then just go-fishing in it". That's what Trump mostly did.
Did You Know?
In 49 B.C., Julius Caesar led his army to the banks of the Rubicon, a small river that marked the boundary between Italy and Gaul. Caesar knew Roman law forbade a general from leading his army out of the province to which he was assigned. By crossing the Rubicon, he would violate that law. "The die is cast," he said, wading in. That act of defiance sparked a three-year civil war that ultimately left Julius Caesar the undisputed ruler of the Roman world. -Merriam Webster dictionary
The thing-about exercising Sovereignty-- is the more you do it-- the more you'll have to keep doing it. When you cross the Rubicon-- you discover that's just the first Rubicon. It will be for naught unless you cross the next and the next and the next.

Yarvin contends that Trump can ALREADY legally win the election-- simply by ordering the legislative Houses in each state to override the popular vote-- and appoint electors who vote for Trump in the electoral college. The red-party controls the majority of state Houses. So all that's required is "party discipline". Same with the majority red-team Supreme Court... with "party discipline" Trump can command SCOTUS to rubber-stamp his re-election. The repercussions of such drastic action would be huge. Revolt in the streets. Blowback for Republican candidates in 2 years-- if the Republic even lasts that-long. Trump would have to pull an Abe Lincoln and firefight against all sorts of Insurrection. Flex sovereignty, cross bloody rubicons.

Applying Yarvin's perspective--

The election-law wranglings of Giuliani, the 'unleash the Kraken' mass-foreign-treason rhetoric of Sydney Powell... are still constrained play-by-the-rules moves on the game board. Sydney Powell's conspiracy talk about foreign & computer election-interference and mass-fraud... is not an escalation Up from the Democrat's own conspiracy talk about Russian Facebook Interference 2016. She's within the rules. Giuliani's legal stuff is well-within the rules of all the FBI and special counsel investigation of Trump. (The Dems just can't handle a dose of their own medicine.) Giuliani & Powell wield slightly-more aggressive scalpels than we are used to seeing from Mitt Romney republicans. But they aren't using machetes. We haven't seen the Republican equivalent of a hundred days of violent riots in the streets & fraudulent FISA warrants used to round-up Adam Schiff & Pelosi in GITMO.

Michael Malice recently said-- that he interrupts when he hears progressives call the NRA 'extremists' and gun 'nuts'. He says-- "you think THOSE are the extreme nuts? The NRA are the MODERATES!" You really aren't comprehending what a real Armed Extremist Movement would actually be-like.

I only visited The_Donald.win for the first time-- a week before the election. I've been watching them closely. I see some brilliant stuff there-- random people crunching election data on their home computers. I see a lot of dumb wannabe shit... they still think Pepe The Frog 'KEK' memes are the height of edgy humor. There's a form of 'party discipline' there... cult-like but at least it's not milquetoast... in their refusal to entertain any possibility except Trump Won The Election And Will Not Leave Office.

Their wild speculations about "The Kraken" are pathetic. And their idea of Crossing The Rubicon is dumb... it's all Red Dawn fantasies of suburban father-son moments with AR-15's vs. purple-haired drag queen story hour BLM trans-tards.

I think a 10,000% more viable rubicon-to-cross would look more like unabashed Gated Communities, Private Schools, and demanding Freedom Of Association with no concern for whether it's Nice... a willingness to be called racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, communist-phobic, backward, 'square', 'on the wrong side of history' ... and... perhaps most-of all, be willing to be called: un-democratic.

No need to reach for guns. Just let Portland, California, Atlanta, D.C. whereever.... each become a CHAZ and implode on their own. Stop sending them tax money welfare.
To be fair to Trump he was under pressure from the first day in office and any swamp draining would have brought a shower of media shit raining down on his comb-over. Remember all the talk about obstruction of justice when he belatedly fired Comey. The predominant story from insiders is that he was advised to proceed with caution and he listened. Being an outsider he didn't have the ready-made cast of a normal swamp monster so he probably had to appoint people his team didn't know that well and found out too late what their real agendas were.

Their wild speculations about "The Kraken" are pathetic. And their idea of Crossing The Rubicon is dumb... it's all Red Dawn fantasies of suburban father-son moments with AR-15's vs. purple-haired drag queen story hour BLM trans-tards.

I think a 10,000% more viable rubicon-to-cross would look more like unabashed Gated Communities, Private Schools, and demanding Freedom Of Association with no concern for whether it's Nice... a willingness to be called racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, communist-phobic, backward, 'square', 'on the wrong side of history' ... and... perhaps most-of all, be willing to be called: un-democratic.

No need to reach for guns. Just let Portland, California, Atlanta, D.C. whereever.... each become a CHAZ and implode on their own. Stop sending them tax money welfare.

Well, you're sporting those nevertrump blinkers which allow one to ignore the mountain of evidence that massive, widespread, coordinated election fraud took place.

i.e., the Detroit ballot counting center was a cesspool of violations:
https://roar-assets-auto.rbl.ms/documen ... essed).pdf

An audit of ballots in Milwaukee, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Atlanta is in order, not the pointless recount of tainted naked ballots as was just completed in GA. In each of those four cities in swing states, and only in those four:
- Vote count reporting stopped at the same time -- midnight -- after the rest of their respective states had submitted their counts, giving trump commanding leads;
- Starting around 3 a.m., hundreds of thousands of ballots suddenly appeared of unknown provenance, in open boxes, suitcases, and even garbage cans;
- Biden won in these ballot blocks by up to 97% to 3%. In at least one tranche of 23,000, every single ballot was for biden;
- 450,000 of thousands of these macigal mystery miracle morning ballots had but one vote cast on them, for biden. No down-ballot votes;
- The sudden influx of these ballots pushed voter turnout to improbable and historically unheard of levels;
- In each state, these dumps of ballots were just enough to put biden over the top.


I'm not sure what trump attorney Sidney Powell is after with this Dominion Software thing. Either she's uncovered the greatest conspiracy in US history, is merely attempting to taint Biden's ascension, or has fallen for a big, fat red herring, a la obama's birth certificate.
There are constitutional reasons why hundreds of thousands of ballots, at least, should be thrown out. Those are just the ballots where the safeguards were known to be missing and there are doubtless millions of other cases where the insecure ballot is no longer identifiable. Mail in balloting just is insecure without the necessary safeguards. Regardless of all of the other allegations the fact that the only real safeguards against mail ballot fraud were thrown out of the window in some states is a huge issue. Let us ignore for the moment that before the election the Democrats mobilised an army of lawyers trying to get these safeguards dropped while using those very safeguards as proof that mail balloting was secure. Can't think what they were up to. It's a mystery . This should not be controversial, the integrity of the election is tainted.

It’s amazing how little nutrient-dense food is required to blow 7-8K kJ away.
And excess energy is of course the basis for weight gain.

MyFitness Pal brought a new level of understanding around my consumption patterns and was a key resource for establishing new eating habits.
Not to mention also putting cheese and nuts into purgatory.

Re carb counting. If you don’t eat any, they are easy to count. ;)
Luckily weight gain is not the greatest concern for me. I'm more interested in energy levels, fitness and mental acuity which are not going to depend on the odd kilogram or two.

Regarding Shrier's book.... my wife and I watched on TV news that this books was banned (and then unbanned) at Target. My wife immediately said "I want you to buy that book!" Haha. Sometimes my old lady comes through. As soon as something gets banned it means you should buy it.

Regarding voting in Michigan. Some of yall might remember that Jill Stein contested the vote in Michigan in 2016. She (basically funded by the Dem party) paid to recount the vote in the state. Within days it was found that about 70% of ballots in Wayne county could not be counted because the ballot counts didn't match. Basically, each batch of ballots are counted, then they are tabulated, then the number of ballots is counted again. Wayne county is so fucked up that the counts of the number of ballots never matches. According to Michigan law, ballots are considered invalid if the counts are wrong. So.... Jill Stein cancelled the recount within a few days. The strongly Dem area of Wayne county was not able to conduct a re-count.

So.... the system in Wayne county was never fixed. The ballot totals are always fucked up. The rest of the state gets this part right. The counts match in the Republican areas. (Yes... Republicans know how to count... who knew???)

So..... if there is a court that orders the recount in Michigan there is a good chance a large number of votes are tossed out in Wayne county and Trump wins the state. We shall see.

A boring Canadian company based on Spadina in Toronto. Zero Venezuelan connections. Yet it seems to have distorted the vote in states where it isn't even used. Remarkable.

Shall we talk about a completely uncontentious issue instead? I've been reading Abigail Shrier's book Irreversible Damage, about rapid onset gender dysphoria. The book has been withdrawn and reinstated at Target. Amazon will not promote it and will not allow ads for it. Petitions are being signed to ban its sale. The Streisand effect has now made it #1 in LGBT Demographic Studies, and was at #45 in all books until Amazon disappeared it from their bestsellers page. When Shrier was interviewed by Joe Rogan, Spotify employees threatened to strike unless they were given editorial control over it. Fortunately, their management discovered some small shred of vertebral tissue and didn't go along. It's worth a watch if you don't want to buy another book:
