Some important points made here...


You see this across the board. The more intelligent, the more education, the more indoctrinated you are, hence the further from the truth. It's with reason that the lowly educated often have the least identification with all the nonsense ideas of the day. Also another important point is that these intelligent people are maximally invested in the system due to said factors, so they'll do anything to avoid the Jenga tower from falling down. The more eduated you are nowadays the more stupid you are, that's the inversion for this Sunday :).

There's a nasty cold/flu/virus going around here. Kids sick, I'm sick, lots of my kids' classmates are out, shelves are empty of cold/flu meds at CVS/Walgreens.

Took my daughter to urgent care yesterday as she spiked a 103+ temp and was puking. There was only one other person there. These urgent cares used to have lines around the block at all hours for COVID tests.

I don't think anywhere cares anymore. Get sick, take some meds and get on with it. Doesn't appear to me anyone is even interested in getting tested at this point.

A large amount of birth problems were happening before covid. I.e. the book Countdown forecast no kids would be born in Western nations without IVF by 2050. Older mums and dads, lower sperm counts, plastic causing endocrine disruption. Obviously evidence is mounting that the covid jabs have a negative impact also. But all the wind seems to blow in one direction. If I was a conspiracy theorist I would say......

Excellent. No positive tests means the "pandemic" is over!

At the weekend, a fellow refusenik took her mother to the local branch of Hobbycraft. Whilst her mother made her purchases, my friend had a look around, and was horrified to see make your own mask kits for children.

Today at work, a colleague, who has had three shots of poison so far, was asking others if they'd had number four. Every person that he spoke to answered in the affirmative.

Attractive Female Students Saw Grades Drop After Switch To Online Learning During Pandemic, New Study Shows​

In what we're sure is simply totally a coincidence and nothing more, the grades of attractive female students examined by a new study fell after classes were moved online during the Covid lockdowns.

A brand new research paper called "Student beauty and grades under in-person and remote teaching" found that "when education is in-person, attractive students receive higher grades".

The same study found that "grades of attractive females declined when teaching was conducted remotely" and that "the effect is only present in courses with significant teacher–student interaction."

The paper had a jury of 74 people rate the looks of 307 engineering students on a scale of 1 to 10. From there, it looked at the data behind the students' grades prior to, and during, pandemic lockdowns, at the Industrial Engineering Program at Lund University.

"This paper has shown that students’ facial attractiveness impact academic outcomes when classes are held in-person," the study concluded.

"As education moved online following the onset of the pandemic, the grades of attractive female students deteriorated. This finding implies that the female beauty premium observed when education is in-person is likely to be chiefly a consequence of discrimination," it continued.

"On the contrary, for male students, there was still a significant beauty premium even after the introduction of online teaching. The latter finding suggests that for males in particular, beauty can be a productivity-enhancing attribute."

“The pandemic provided us with a great opportunity to disentangle whether this beauty premium is due to discrimination or the result of some productive attribute,” the author of the study, Adrian Mehic of Lund University, told The Times.
