I Got What I Expected, China is Stalking Me

I’ve posted stuff on Covid (link here to some of my posts to make it easy on them), where I called it the China/Wuhan virus, all to point at the CCP and the MSM. I also have done a lot of gene editing posts about creating bio weapons and super soldiers, and highlighted how they […]

Timeline of Covid, China and More UNC-CH, Gain of Function, Moderna and The Connections Documented

It starts with this: November: University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (UNC) researcher Ralph Baric publishes a “breakthrough work” in gain-of-function research (studies that alter pathogens to make them more transmissible or deadly), describing the creation of a synthetic clone of a natural mouse coronavirus. November: China’s Guangdong province reports the first case of “atypical pneumonia” […]

More On China, Gene Editing and Creating The Planet Of the Apes

I recently posted that China could be creating a Master Race of Super Soldiers. There was a lot to digest, so I am posting the next portion of that discussion. How Much Progress Have They Made? Did Anyone Watch The Planet Of The Apes? Bing Su, a Chinese geneticist at the state-run Kunming Institute of […]

Covid/China/Wuhan Mask Update, Rhetorical Questions That Should Be Asked

Yes once again I posted it as China and Wuhan Virus. I am testing the limits of censorship to see what they will do, at the risk of some meaningless banishment. I’m so afraid. People who don’t wear masks are called mask-holes. I wonder sometimes if it’s not the other way around.

Is China Creating A Master Race Of Super Soldiers?

Didn’t anyone watch The Wrath Of Khan? Don’t we already know that trying to engineer a master race always goes wrong. Isn’t Russia kicked out of world competition? Do we even have a James T. Kirk who can defeat a superior enemy? Gene Editing Through Crisper-Cas We are witnessing the manipulation of DNA through eRNA […]

Introvert Covid/China Virus Update

First of all, don’t get bent that I put China virus in the title. I’m testing big brother to see if they’ll censor me or not. Yes, I’m pushing the limits because, well because. Back to the meme, it hasn’t changed much for me, other than having more people in the house. Being alone is […]

Will Rogers On Ingorance

“You know everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.” We all are smart at something (the converse is true about the other things). For that we grant ourselves superiority status that bleeds to other things that aren’t always our best subjects. That led to the next saying. “Here, hold my beer”. We all know how […]

About That Cancel Culture Thingy

I slip in things like China Virus, IRS is big brother and other words just to give the censors something to do. Sooner or later they’ll move the line and you won’t see me for 30 days or whatever the penalty is for using the wrong work or pronoun that I probably couldn’t keep straight. […]

Only 23 Americans Tested Positive for Flu Last Week Compared to 14,657 Cases Reported Last Year at Same Time Do you ever get the feeling you’re being lied to? 450,390 people have now died WITH the coronavirus in the US this year.  That number includes poisonings, shootings, homicides and hospice deaths.  Only 6% of all […]

Today’s Most Ironic Head Line Of The Day

From the WSJ: China Is Now Sending Twitter Users to Prison for Posts Most Chinese Can’t See Two of the most restrictive groups censorship wise are going at each other here to ban information that was made to be published, go figure. Note: It refers to the CCP government, not the Chinese people. Both are […]

Einstein on Comprehending The World

“The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is at all comprehensible.” – Albert Einstein Even I have a hard time comprehending everything that is going on.

Wuhan Virus Reported A Year Old Today

It was first reported a year ago today, but as we have come to find out, it was probably on the loose well before it was reported, certainly in China. It has lead to a big change in our lives and possibly affected the outcome of the election, but who knows. I wonder when history […]

Good News! Climate Deaths Down 99.6%

I trust that the vaccine’s being distributed and will help stop the China/Wuhan/Corona/Covid/Whatever virus and stop the deaths. I like old people, they are full of wisdom. We need that right now. The other good news is that deaths from global warming are also down. As I say later, I think the climate is changing. […]

Covid-19 Benefits For Some of Us

No one would wish what happened to us with the China/Wuhan/Covid-19/Kung flu/Corona virus this year.  I wonder if there is any silver lining? WE’VE LEARNED THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE IN PERSON AT WORK First, the essential workers should be commended.  Those putting their life at risk for the rest of us or to […]

Great Sayings – Mark Twain on Facts and Statistics (Covid-19)

“Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are more pliable.”   Doctors Fauci and Birx predicted gloom, doom and death with the China/Wuhan/Corona/Covid/Whatever virus.  They were off not by a little, but by millions.  History will show whether they saved a lot of lives or screwed the World’s economy.  Let that be the judge and not […]

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s […]

Sayings – Do Humans Learn From Their Mistakes?

Douglas Adams – “Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.”   I guess not.  I wonder what lessons we will have from the Corona/Covid/China/Wuhan/Whatever virus?  Probably not to trust the media and to carefully evaluate […]

Covid-19, It’s Another Pearl Harbor – We’ve Been Through This Before And We Do It Best

Update:  On April 5th, the Surgeon General compared the Corona Virus to Pearl Harbor. There are events in history that cause a divided nation to come together.

Two disturbing articles came my way.  I watch the economy and look for trends.  I found two that are similar because of political policies, yet would be so easy to fix if the respective governments would stop spending, handing out money to those who don’t deserve it, stop handing to themselves and stop the regulations.

Kiss Your Password Security Goodbye

You may think that you have good password security.  More likely, you are like most people who re-use the same password for many accounts, don’t change it often enough and use your pet’s name or some other easy to find information that makes break in easy. Face it, we are lazy, lax and don’t understand […]

The PC is Toast, Or Maybe Just a Toaster

Gone are the glory days when the PC would rule over the vaunted Mainframe, putting power at desks without the overbearing DP department overcharging and under delivering past the due date. What has evolved though is a commodity product that is at best a commodity like a toaster.  You can buy one anywhere to toast […]

It’s Not Easy Being Green, Or getting the evidence of Global Warming – My Short Tenure at IBM in Sustainability

Note: I’ve edited this to accurately represent what really happened at the Green and Sustainability effort during my tenure at this job.  It has died because once the fury of Green passed by, nobody cared about it.  That accurately reflects the real position by everyone in the company that I worked with except the executive […]

David Hill – Chief Lenovo Designer, a Man Who has Created Much, and Touched Millions

Many years ago, I brought John Dvorak back to the ThinkPad design center for an interview with David. This is a room with more creative designs than most museums. Many items never make it out of this lab, yet they would make a lesser designer famous. I never sensed that David yearned for fame, but […]

USS Indianapolis

On July 30, 1945, the USS Indianapolis was sunk after delivering the Hiroshima bomb on a super secret mission. So secret, it was days before it was even noticed missing. When it was hit, 900 of the 1196 men went into the water. Less than 300 came out when they were sighted by accident and […]

BRIC or Brac

IBM hasn’t ceded any space in the America’s or Europe and is doing just fine there, that’s not the point. Where we are doing well is in the new farmlands of the BRIC countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC). According to the Economist, July 8-14, 2006 edition, Page 94: GDP, Q1 2006, % […]

Follow the Money, where are the lands to Farm?

We’re in the fight for Partners, middleware, marketshare and mindshare. There are many things in play. First of all, many of the middleware vendors (Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, IBM) are well established, especially in the traditional geography’s like the US and EMEA. The fight for standards is down to .Net vs Open (or NetWeaver I guess), […]

Sunday, December 7th, 1941, a Date that will live in Infamy

A question that has interested historians and researchers for decades is: why? Why did Japan launch an attack that, in hindsight at least, they clearly had no chance of winning? The obvious answer is that they thought they could, but military and naval strategists know the answer is not so simple. Precisely because its resources […]

More on Maturing Workforce, % of the population over 60

If you haven’t noticed, IBM is speaking to the issue of the maturing workforce. I received these country statistics and found them quite interesting.
