I just don't get when she is doing her zone cleaning.
Project finished. It took me a couple of years to knit this cardi, by some reason, but I'm quite content with the results, besides the fact that the sleeves could be a bit shorter. It's warm, too, which is a plus point since today we had like +15*C and rain, nearly the whole day. I tell you, it's a bad summer in these parts for global warming prophets:)
Probably when Victorians decided parts of the Bible were "mean". It's true that the New Testament supersedes the OT, but the Old Testament is not there to only fill up space, either.
In fact, many New Testament commands are right there in OT, too, including one of the most famous and important Love thy neighbour as thyself.
Leviticus 19 gives several commands on dealing with your neighbour starting with verse 13 and sums it up as follows (vs 18, KJV)
What does it really mean to love your neighbour? Modern liberal Christians will tell you it means being "nice" and accept him (her) as they are. Yet the very preceding verse states:
George Bernard Shaw was a very interesting person.
A progressive who admired Mussolini and a life-long vegetarian who did use animal liver at one point to combat anemia, he was staunchly against vaccines which he called "a peculiarly filthy piece of witchcraft" and took part in campaign against mandatory smallpox vaccination.
In his opinion, people would stop dying from infectious diseases when their nutrition and living conditions improved.
Recently I have been pondering why Western men are often such wimps. What is happening? Can it only be attributed to lying media propaganda and soy consumption?
Then I stumbled upon this discussion (please forgive me for linking to Roosh forum twice in one week:)
Could it be an answer to my question? Just like the Pill and hysterectomies, male sterilisation is pushed by the medical system as not only being safe, but being good for health, too.
Yet, one internet search brought these results:
Small testicles and shrunken penis after excision are a very real problem for many men, and so are many other serious complications.
It's interesting that they link to an African study done on giant rats which proves that
unilateral vasectomy in the AGR may result in perturbations of the histo-architecture of the testes with possible decline in function.
In other words, it turns them into eunuchs and that with only one testicle affected. Of course, Africans are still less politically correct about these things than the "enlightened" West which sees fertility as a health crisis.
Here is one man's experience of vasectomy:
Since my original vasectomy, I have undergone six additional surgeries and nerve blocks in an attempt to stop the chronic pain, including a four and a half-hour testicular reconstruction and vasectomy reversal. I have been offered 90 medications in conjunction with innumerable therapies. Some approaches have offered temporary relief, but none have provided a cure. Other men I’ve come in contact with who have experienced the same type of painful consequences from their vasectomy procedures have been dealing with the aftereffects for five to ten years and more. The negative effects of tubal ligation for women and many other long-term methods of birth control used by women are well known. Unlike vasectomies, though, this has been discussed openly for many years. Men and women should consider the possible substantial negative results before seeking surgical sterilization.
Of course, some and even many men won't experience these severe side effects, but what about psychological implications of neutering oneself for both the man and his partner?
Turks who live around here appear to be much more masculine, could it be partly due to the fact that the most popular form of contraception in Turkey and presumably in diaspora, is a pull-out method (which despite lies, is proven to be more effective than condoms)? So that his old lady knows if she is particularly unpleasant he can leave and start another family with some hot young thing? Who knows...
Well, may be my theory is just that, a theory. But do we still believe that our current "betters" really wish us well? That includes the Western medical establishment.
The only church in the West which calls sterilisation a sin is the Catholic Church, as far as I know. Yet, do you even have to be religious to understand that permanent mutilation of one's body is hardly a good idea? Human fertility is not a disease.
Lieutenant-General Sir Adrian Paul Ghislain Carton de Wiart, (5 May 1880 – 5 June 1963) was a British Army officer born of Belgian and Irish parents. He was awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest military decoration awarded for valour "in the face of the enemy" in various Commonwealth countries. He served in the Boer War, First World War, and Second World War. He was shot in the face, head, stomach, ankle, leg, hip, and ear; was blinded in his left eye; survived two plane crashes; tunnelled out of a prisoner-of-war camp; and tore off his own fingers when a doctor declined to amputate them. Describing his experiences in the First World War, he wrote, "Frankly I had enjoyed the war."
We used to have men like this, now they want to breastfeed, oh sorry, chestfeed...

they do happen!
I'd had tendinitis in my wrist for a couple of months. It started when I was turning a mattress. I tried Chinese acupressure, bandages and ointments, nothing helped. Luckily , it didn't cause much pain, but the swelling was always present. It's my right hand, too.
Now if you do a search on it, the official medical info will tell you that you need medication and probably also an operation. I decided just to wait and see since it wasn't bothering me that much.
Then I caught a cold. Nothing special but with this "delta variant" scare I wanted to get rid of it as soon as possible so I decided to try some vit.C. Now I have read that our bodies don't really absorb synthetic vit.C supplements well, especially in doses higher than 250 mg (mcg? I forget what it is), so I bought cranberry juice instead. Not the sugary mix from the supermarket either, but the real thing, pure and undiluted (it tastes horrible).
The cold became better after a couple of days, but since I already opened a bottle I kept drinking it for several more days. Mostly put a tablespoon in my tea. When the bottle was finished, the next day the swelling in my wrist was gone completely. Just like that.
I haven't done anything different, outside of cranberry juice and an extra helping of yogurt in the morning, but it couldn't be yogurt, could it now? I think cranberry juice.
Anyway, it proves that natural remedies work and that our food and drink influence us more than we think.
That was the whole point of it:
The 50-minute-long training session left Huston, who weighs 113lb and wears 45lb of line gear plus a 25lb chainsaw strapped to her back, exhausted beyond anything she’d felt before. “I could feel the fatigue literally in my womb,” the 23-year-old says.
Huston is a hotshot – a firefighter who battles wildfires. She hasn’t had a period in three years, something she attributes to the physical intensity of the job, and the brutal training sessions crews are put through...
Research Jahnke conducted in 2018 surveyed 1,821 women in the force. The report found 27 percent of firefighters’ pregnancies ended in miscarriage, while rates of pre-term birth were as high as 16.7 percent, higher than the national average of 10 percent.
The solution is, of course, to have kinder, gentler fires that pregnant ladies will have little difficulty putting out:
Firefighters are regularly exposed to chemicals like carbon monoxide, ammonia and known carcinogens, which, according to the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics, are linked to early miscarriage, birth defects, slowed fetal growth, impeded brain development and preterm labor.
It's because fires are a tool of the patriarchy, government should have forbidden wildfires long ago. Then women could just get a high salary without actually doing anything at all:
“Women are being failed by a system that is intrinsically built around, and for, men,” says Dr Sara Jahnke, the director and senior scientist at the National Development & Research Institutes, which focuses on public health.
“There is no room for sexual harassment or gender-based discrimination in the fire service,” said USFA fire administrator Tonya Hoover.
When choosing a career for your daughter, remember, we are all equal! As for children, we can always import them, after all we are doing quite a good job right now...
It appears they have taken down Vox Day for "possible Terms of Service violations". He was very busy lately writing about Corona vaccines. Could it be the reason? I wonder if he manages to get his blog back.
If you have any info, feel free to share!
The indecency we’ve accepted from American television over the last four decades would be impossible in Muslim countries, not because of tyrannical theocrats, but because of the massive protests that would explode in the streets. I remember watching Forrest Gump in Cairo. All kissing had been cut out, and Jenny’s nude performance of Dylan’s Blowin’ in the Wind. We are wrong to dismiss criticisms we receive for our celebration of promiscuity, even when those critiques come from sources that are otherwise poor models for us. Any TV executive in Qatar who allowed the smut American producers promote would have a throng of angry Arabs outside his office screaming for his head...
Do it yourself! After my help got a burnout and quit some time ago, I have re-discovered my hidden homemaking talents and since I started trying a new housekeeping schedule my house looks much better than it ever did before. Consistency is the key.
It took me 2 hours to clean this cupboard yesterday (it's only a part of it as it's quite big). I don't have a before picture, but believe me, it looked horrible:)
I'm actually quite proud :) I have come to the conclusion that it's better not to rely on anyone unless it's absolutely necessary. Cleaning could be boring but the results are more than worth it, imo!
Change my mind:)
Vegetarians have existed like for ages. One of my mother's friends was (and still is) pretty much a pescatarian, though she eats chicken liver sometimes for the vitamins. In India, some areas have been vegetarian for centuries, even without modern supplements this diet seems sustainable, though a restrictive one.
On the other hand, even 20 years ago few people heard about vegans. Yet now, if you try to do a search on vegetarianism the only thing you come across are militant vegans.
Vegan diet isn't sustainable in the long run without supplements (at least b12) and many quit and go into the other opposite, pushing meat-only diets.
Those behind this psy-op have probably heavily invested in both vegan products/supplements and meat industry and thus profit both ways, while sensible folks interested in vegetarian-leaning diets are scared away by the fanatical vegan rantings (and horror stories of ex-vegans).
Others, especially gullible young women decide that vegan is the way to go and more often than not destroy their health and fertility, while making the vegan industry rich, then often turn to the other extreme, as I mentioned above.
It's interesting that vegans often attack vegetarians more than omnivores, calling them traitors and such.
I should add that there were also mass protests on Saturday, among others in France, Italy and Amsterdam.
Also, Germany hasn't introduced corona passport yet, they are right now
scaring dissenters into submission speaking theoretically about "what could happen if cases reached a certain number".
Americans on the Telegram were blaming "nazi". It's an amazing thing that NSDAP was utterly destroyed and defeated by the Allies in the 1945 and yet, so many people are still valiantly fighting against nazi boogiemen some 75 years after the fact. No, the current government of Germany aren't Nazi any more than the current government of the USA is, they are the children and grandchildren of those put in power by the winners.
