I live in The Middle of Nowhere, Australia. I share my little piece of the Earth with one extraordinarily patient female of my species and a mini zoo consisting of Shetland ponies, alpacas, sheep, goats, and a variable population of feral cats, rabbits, possums, rats, mice, snakes, spiders and other assorted critters (still working on the partridge in a pear tree).

In my spare time, I like moonlit walks on the beach, candlelit dinners and avoiding cliches.

I don't generally bite (much), so please feel free to say hi any time you feel like it.

CD Richards: Breaking news: Yoko Ono has threatened to have her music added to Spotify if they don't remove Joe Rogan.

CD Richards: My thought for the day:

How come there are so many people who barely managed to graduate high school (if that), and don't know the difference between there, their and they're; but somehow, overnight, have become world-leading epidemiology experts, knowing more than people who have dedicated decades of their life to studying viruses? Quite astounding.

To my friends here on FS, and even those who are not, have a safe and happy Christmas!

CD Richards: There is some alarming and potentially deadly nonsense being spread in communities at large and on this site regarding Covid-19 vaccinations. Millions of people have died from this contagion, and millions more will, if superstition and ridiculous conspiracy theories are allowed to propagate. Here are a couple of occurrences which happened fairly recently in my home state:

1) 30 of 36 people at a party contracted Covid-19. Not one of those thirty people had been vaccinated. The 6 people who walked away from the party without contracting the virus had all been fully vaccinated. Speaks for itself, doesn't it? If there was no connection between immunity and vaccination, then the probability of this outcome by chance is around 1 in 2 million.

2) On one particular day, the evening news announced that there were 47 Covid-19 patients occupying hospital beds in the state, including children and young adults. 16 were in intensive care and 5 on ventilators. Not one of those patients had received a vaccination.

The evidence is clear and indisputable. There is a tiny chance of complications, including blood clots, from getting the vaccine. The risk of getting blood clots or dying if you are not vaccinated and catch Covid-19 is orders of magnitude higher.

Don't put off getting the vaccine if you want to minimise your chances of dying, and more importantly, don't spread stupid rumours with no basis in fact and risk the lives of others.

    AnnaLinda: Craig, I think you will like this.

    As the corrupt J. Edgar Hoover once said, the average person is handicapped when coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. Although he said that in regard to communism, the idea has a deeper meaning. The ordinary person finds it hard to detect it when DEW are openly used. They just believe it when the MSM says ?wildfire.? However, it is an open fact that the US Government has a long history of experimenting upon its own people, e.g. the 1930s Tuskegee syphilis experiments, the 1940s Guatemalan experiments and the 1960s CIA LSD experiments. With these recent fires in Paradise, California, the evil has sunk to new depths. There is abundant evidence the government used DEW to decimate the area, selectively destroy targets (while leaving other adjacent buildings and even forests intact) and commit mass murder.

Yes, I've heard this word. I think sociopaths use it in an attempt to discredit the notion of empathy.

CD Richards: Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich by promising to protect each from the other.

CD Richards: A seasonal warning:

Don't buy your children war-based toys for Christmas, or crappy, violent TV series on DVD. These things turn their impressionable brains to porridge.

And please keep the kiddies away from deranged cults.

Stay safe and have a wonderful Christmas.

    Carlos' girl: cults like fanstory ? lol

CD Richards: Because I'm not a brainwashed juvenile, I'm not going to wish anyone dead. But I really would like to see some people prevented from breeding.

The fact that jellyfish have survived for 650 million years without brains gives hope to many people.

CD Richards: Two tips for Christmas:

1. Forget the past -- you can't change it.
2. Forget the present -- I didn't get you one.

    damommy: Hahahaha. So I guess I needn't expect one in the mail.

CD Richards: Scientists have recently discovered yet another mysterious substance permeating the cosmos. In addition to anti-matter and dark-matter, there is now doesn't-matter. Apparently, it has no effect on the universe whatsoever.
