Political Discussion / Re: Who are you going to vote for?
« on: July 30, 2020, 11:57:41 PM »
OK, I'm gonna vote for Ron Curtis.

Dickens didn't even have a website, in this day and age, 2020 for crying out loud. Or at least I couldn't find one, which is also a problem (i.e., he is clueless). Only some Facebook page, and doh, I deleted my FB account years ago, so I can't see crap about him.

Curtis has a STEM background, not a dummy, and what I read on his website didn't make me puke. Being an insider can be useful to use connections and leverage to make things happen.

Political Discussion / Who are you going to vote for?
« on: July 23, 2020, 07:34:10 PM »
Mayor I will vote for Kym Pine.

The others I am not impressed (no need to explain to you guys about C.H. and M.H.), and I also saw an attack ad on TV against Amemiya and too bad, it made him look real bad.

Kym Pine apparently is a Democrat (so she has a chance of winning in HI) but is also a gun owner (says a lot about how you really feel). So, as long as the liberals don't realize that, it's all good.

Kym Pine has traction, so I want my vote (and those of people I talk to) to have a winning chance.

What are your folks' views on the Republican reps?
Ron CURTIS
James DICKENS
Nancy OLSON
Artuo P. REYES
Taylor SMITH

OMG! You guys are too much! Nuts!

Please, STOP THE INSANITY already!

I don't think we should continue this discussion. It seems people's minds are set and even using logic and analogies is not working.

One more time, let's look at this point by point.

Do you wear a condom at all times?

You wear the mask when you go outside of your home.

Do you attempt to wash them and reuse them?

No, they are one use items, but when you have only one mask, you have to do it, to avoid infection. So you do it extremely carefully, using a scientific approach. Masks are being disinfected and reused by medical professionals now. Check the news. It was on the news last night.

Do you put one on and touch everything on the planet, then use them for what they are supposed to be used for?
Do you use one and leave it on after you use it?
Do you use it and take it off and throw it on the ground for some kid to pick up and play with?


No, the majority of people are not going to do that.

No one is saying don't use, just be smart about it, and attempting to stretch items beyond their intended use is counterproductive and even dangerous.

Exactly. So use them as intended, to prevent being infected, and also infecting others. Wear a mask. Disinfect it properly if you can't buy another one and dispose of the one you used.

And furthermore, all these gotdamn imbeciles are taking off their infected ass PPE and throwing them everywhere and not disposing them properly. Potentially infecting those of us who have a brain and use it.

Most people won't do that. A few imbeciles are also using guns and condoms incorrectly. So all guns and condoms should be banned for everyone?

As gun owners, I hope we are using our heads and not just willi nilly doing things that don't make sense.

Exactly my point. Use logic and rational sense please.

Do you buy a brand new gun and take it to the range before you even know how to use it properly and how to safely unload it?

Exactly we do not. There is a proper technique to putting on and taking off a mask. The public needs to be educated about it. It is not rocket science and is infinitely simpler than handling a gun. There are countless videos in many languages explaining how to don and doff a mask.

That's my point.  The whole HIV/Condom analogy is not accurate.  Too many other variables.

I think the firearm analogy is best.  If you get one for protection, but don't learn/practice proper safe handling, you're increasing your chances of being harmed/killed.

A gun only keeps you safer in case of a real attack/threat.  Same for masks.  If you never encounter the virus, the mask served no purpose.


The analogy is not accurate because you guys are using irrational reasons to think about it.

You are basically using the liberal logic of firearms to apply to masks, saying there are crazy people who are irresponsible and that people who do not use guns properly will kill themselves and others, so nobody should be using these. And that guns are useless if you never encounter a real threat. Might as well never use seat belts either. Or condoms!

OK enough of this, sorry but it's too much. If you STILL don't get it, I think there's nothing to be said.

Off Topic / WTF Train Wreck
« on: April 04, 2020, 11:54:30 AM »
So, I'm not one of those conspiracy theory nuts... but actually sometimes I am LOL!

(F*ck the cultural taboo on this important area of research and f*ck that subtle shaming censorship.)

Anyway I haven't really paid much attention to the guy who tried to derail a train and, according to him, expose the hospital ship for what it is?

Anyone know WTF is up with that?

None of it makes sense. (Of course, people can say he is looney.)

None of it makes sense right now because we lack information.

He did get people to pay attention to it. But obviously whatever he said he thought is happening there, has not been reported.

I am laughing at home because the whole thing is so ridiculous!

So this condom analogy, take it further.

You don't wear a condom unless you are 100% HIV positive.

So if you have symptoms such as organ failure or some other kinds of warning signs, then get tested, and MAYBE you can consider wearing a condom then.

And THEN you tell your sex partners (and also mention to your spouse, LOL) that they might want to get tested, but none of them should wear any condoms until they start showing symptoms or get a positive test result.

WTF folks!?! Is this the world we live in now?! Why are so many people not seeing how ridiculous the official mask policy is?

PS - Oh, don't wear real condoms. DIY! Save those sausage skins and maybe repurpose the plastic bags and ziplocs. Use CONTACT CEMENT maybe if you have to (let dry first). LOL

I just thought of an analogy.

Does a condom protect you or protect your sex partner?

DOH!

The governments are telling people, don't wear condoms! Wear one only if you have HIV.

Save the condoms for sex workers and those who already have HIV!

Get tested. But don't wear a condom unless you have 100% confirmed HIV.

Wearing masks is a priority for the INFECTED, to prevent them from spreading the virus.

Wearing gloves, washing hands and not touching our faces is a priority for the UNINFECTED and INFECTED alike, as it lowers the risk of spreading and contracting the disease.

I should not have to do this because it is VERY SIMPLE LOGIC but it seems I need to.

How do you know YOU are not an ASYMPTOMATIC CARRIER?

Does that mean you don't care about the people you might inadvertently infect, the ones you have come across in your shopping runs?

I honestly do not believe you are such a person.

So what you have done is just succumbed to MSM nonsense.

This is not even including the fact that masks protect a person from being infected, which again is such a simple thing, it's IDIOCRACY we need to debate it.

Just watch, now I predict the MSM is going to go out of its way to tell people TO WEAR masks, and then eventually they are going to start to use the shaming tactic to shame people who do not wear masks. We will see a LOT of media coverage on how to make masks, how to wear masks, how fashionable they are, maybe some celebrities will wear masks, etc.

This is exactly how China (and probably the old USSR) does it and everyone without critical thinking follows along the latest "decree" from the Chairman.

Later, they will switch from DIY masks to tell you to wear the actual damned medical grade mask.

Back to my original comment, if they want to tell people to be altruistic and let medical staff have the N95, that's what they should do. Not use deception to put everyone at risk, and even cause us to waste time and energy debating this exact topic. Nuts!

Many of your posts are informative and well thought out, but I noticed that even someone normally rational like you can succumb to the thinking mistakes that, ironically, you recently have been accusing people of, such as being a “sheeple” for believing MSM nonsense, and not having “common sense.” In the above reply you are still clinging onto the irrational, promulgated by the MSM. You would probably not be thinking the way you did if they didn't start selling us that nonsensical idea, so it seems even someone normally rational like you can succumb to the MSM. I can even imagine you taking the other side (which you should have in the first place) and telling people they are stupid sheeple for not wearing masks.

The face mask thing is so simple and logical, it is surreal people are even debating it. Now it seems the US government, and other countries, that told people not to wear masks, are all backtracking. But of course, they can’t actually say they were wrong before, so they need to frame it in a way to say oh, with new research information, now they think people can breathe it out, so everyone should wear it. What kind of mental acrobatics do we need to do to twist our brains around such a simple thing? It’s almost like the communist China propaganda they use to twist the Chinese people’s brains.

Common sense isn't common, as many will attest to.

That's all relative.

Case in point, I would say wearing a face mask is infinitely higher priority than wearing gloves.

You can easily disinfect your hands with sanitizer gel or spray.

My guess is we will see MAJOR crumbling in another two months, and it gets progressively worse, and then the SHTF thing you mention will happen NEXT year.

Could be wrong. Could be this year.

If you are running around trying to buy toilet paper, food, water, guns and ammunition now, it's too late.

One can always top up. Like with gas. Always keep it filled if possible but you still need to top up.

I just left the two masks my wife and I used on the top of the black dashboard.  Parked in the sun, it should get plenty hot enough to kill any virus, especially when it is going to sit there for 3 days.

Heat will degrade the plastic fibers. This seems much too hot. Oven level heat.

it will damage it some
but not as much as baking (which could damage the elastic bands) or dipping in alcohol
you are breathing in microscopic dust when you are wearing it, and that will affect longevity of the mask
dust settling on it while it is in the sun is a minuscule amount

I bought an ozone machine last year that is supposed to work too...

A buddy of mine bought exactly that, ozone machine.

Both of us are a bit concerned how he should use it safely. He hasn’t done anything with it yet.

You check recently if the machine works?

Better check now while maybe parts are still available and can be delivered.

Yeah.  Legal action.  That always helps in emergency situations.   :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

And begging for donations to support a media (not medical) website so they can continue bashing anyone who supports well-documented, effective measures to reduce the risk of spreading germs tells us all we need to know.

Did you read the article? It specifically quotes the new MIT research which specifically debunks the "well-documented, effective measures to reduce the risk of spreading germs."

I don't ONLY post from them.
