THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE PERSONAL TUNNEL

with one comment

The hospital called today, the first good news in awhile. The pathologist has looked things over, and they believe they removed all the cancer yesterday. Woohoo! So reconstructive surgery tomorrow, and if that goes well, I might be blogging for years to come! Front row seats to the collapse of the American Empire. And hell, Covid may get me yet, but sure doing what I can to avoid it. And speaking of personal tunnels, that’s me in 1978 or so. Me and my friends made a hobby of exploring old mines. One can see from the photo, not exactly up to modern codes. How the hell I survived my youth is still a mystery to me. Oh, Jenny Lee Mine, near Vernon, Nevada. A ghost town. Second pic this page is actually the tailings of the Jenny Lee, the entrance I’m coming out of is just off the right edge of the photo.

Thank you for listening to my TED Talk. Short post tonight, I have to be at the hospital at 530am. Today’s links and news: A scientist weighs in on Trump and company’s, well, toddlerism: Following the Rules. It really is that simple, Trump lost the election fair and square, and is now trying to change the rules to make it so he won. Pathetic. Now Trump’s firing election officials who pointed out Trump’s claims of voter fraud are completely unsubstantiated. God only knows how the cult of Trump is going to end, but as long as Trump is around, that’s what the GOP has become: The Republican Party Is Dead. It’s the Trump Cult Now.

Fun times. Former Secret Service agents speculating about having to drag Trump from the White House. This long and depressing article in the NYT: Why the 2020 Election Makes It Hard to Be Optimistic About the Future. Still, two exciting new vaccines, but not a magic bullet: The Latest Vaccine News Doesn’t Tell the Full Story. And of course, we still have dinosaurs: ‘Dueling dinosaurs’ fossils show Triceratops, T. rex, may have died after a battle.

One last link before I stagger off to bed. I’ll probably miss the bed on the first few tries, being able to see out of only one eye is confusing. Interesting article, basically posits that humans and Neanderthals warred for over 100,000 years. Makes sense I guess. Sadly it might explain why racism and “othering” come so easy to humans. The “other tribe” was wiped out tens of thousands of years ago, but we’re still fighting. Sadly against our own now.

Stay safe and sane everyone.#StaytheFHome #WearaDamnMask #FelesRegula

  1. I’ve had a “bad” eye for several years. I have an eye injection monthly. It’s really not too bad.I hink yours might be worse than mine, but the human body gets used to most things fairly quickly. Now you just need a pirate outfit. Cheers. Good news. Get well.
