I clicked the Chrome icon twice and then the firey fox once. it loaded first, but before I hit the reset browser button, I remembered how every time that program updates, I lose my password data and this is reaaaaallllly not a good time to start another blog, nor on this day.
um.. brains from propaganda to advertising.
that is a developing post on dykewriter…Rulers of Writering subblog…
This post is about Bugs Bugs Bugs.

I spent much of the afternoon watching that family of 5 blue jays doing preening and practise flying in the yard. Their first passby to check for cats or dogs. And me, Several times they perched in the gutters on the roofline to stare down at me.
They had been quiet and I had not barked or meowed at them yet.
So, they figured I was not going to bother them and they actually played a who was more daring to swoop around me. Then from the roof, through the street mid-yard to the stumps or the post at the end of the yard, stunning blue winged shapes effortlessly floating on air.
It made for a nicer afternoon, yesterday I had swept most of the leaves and slime muck and it’s been dry, so just breath in good and breath out bad as it’s said in many ways and contexts. So whichever floats yer boat.
Post dinner, I stepped outside again, only to have a mosquito buzz my ear and that was enough to go inside. Freaking nightmare, T-Rex of the noseeums, vampire bugs that spread plagues…. it is spring or fall, I can hardly tell at all, eh.
AIDS was not a queer disease, Gay Men in America were educated and well paid and could afford the health care to be diagnosed so that the virus was even detected.
Africa has had – still has – so many different areas with so many outbreaks that kill faster than AIDs, it was not detected and it has a 100 year history there and what made the difference to AIDs was Highways, which because of trade (truckers, travellers and sex workers along the line) and wars – displacement and all the war crimes associated – the diease was allowed to spread – there were many vectors – undercooked bush meat (eating infected but badly cooked monkey meat) – as well as animal workers being bitten or occupational hazard exposure without best known procedures, not just bare minimums.
It was the first scary new STD, the Victorian Era with the last of The Great and Small Poxes. Herpes, Chlamydia and Syphilis Heps A, B, C, D and have F and G been officially declared yet? some born in liquids, other in fluids, air borne or contact, drunk or consumed, spewed or spurted. HIV and AIDs….. Syndromes and chronic disease progressions.
Christopher Columbus never set foot in “America”, which is named for Amerigo Vesspucci another explorer from Italy altogether.
Columbus’ only real claim to fame is bringing back syphilis to Europe, and his Colonial Conduct in the South Americas.
There is nothing that religion explains that science doesn’t provide a better explanation of.
Religion is a waste of virgins into volcanoes or at the altar…
Contamination fears is at the root of racism, inflamed by religion to take cleaning to unacceptable and intolerable levels given the level of evidence provided for claims of any afterlife at all.
Never mind the Pascal Wager Flaws, the bad math at the drunk end of a old man fearing his own death and finding religion and trying to justify it. Bad math for a gambler start.
Mad Cow disease happened because of mixing sheep into cowfeed….
Traditional herbal and fungal medicines were the basis of modern better living through Chemistry – Antiquian Age – the science of science has far progressed, and the disciplines are interinformative – from math to physics, to biology through geology, they all tell the story, the same story, just from different understandings. Science works the same way every time, once the bad ideas are prunes out and those are the ones inserted by religion and politics – as opposed to governance – regulatory frameworks, not self regulatory boards that merely act as price monopolies.
Still, methods have been developed to eliminate, eradicate and predict disease waves in an era of Global Pandemics vs local epidemics and plagues. Something best regulated at airports and harbors, transportation, tourists or troops, there are only adventures now, the Exploration Age of the surface of the planet is over. If not for religion, we might have had middle class Moon Cruises by now. Well, that and the Shuttle Program setbacks.
water bears, but how would they get into space?
domesticate animals,livestock and pets, interacted with, transmission vectors for them as for people, fluids and solids into and out of the body… and the fleas, lice and ticks that they can carry, parasites or symbiotic… hippos and rhinos and elephants with birds, sharks and pilot fish, parasite eaters, dung dwellers, nature is not just red in tooth and claw, it is energy restorative and thrifty – mass is reconverted into energy and then, something else eats that eh.
Fleas and their parasites…
religion is a meme that infects the mind and is the cause of most mental illness: symptoms include no sense of humour and utter lack of perspective, inability to work or play well with others.
Fire: making food safe to eat, more nutritious, and easier to consume, leaving more time for thinking around the fire. The leap from animal scared of the elements to mastering it!
sparking The Grandmother Revolution, and the aggregate of tool making knowledge, leading to better tools and team work – co-operation. hunters and gathers, until Farmers.
Healers and Spiritualists, using plants and fungus, distillations, teas, brews for medical and spiritual purposes.
most medication is to make you sleep, trigger your body’s refresh and maintenance cycles that happen during sleep. most of the ingredients are for taste and smell, comforts, some are just candy or mild versions of stronger drugs.
Leftover memories of times where we were hominids and not alone in our niches?
Memories of those with mastery of elements – fire making and tool creating
yeasts, molds, fungus, distillations, extractions, purifications and airations, carbonized
eggs and dairy, cheeses, bacteria and mold, ageing raw and ripe or aged and sharp – pasturization – food safety starts and the whole food vs processed foods to refined foods
everything poops everywhere, the trick is to not over poop nor over deplete
pure energy in crystalline form – refined to raw…
know your bears before you barge into the backcountry, know when to run down hill or play dead, eh
fermented foods…most animals will eat your belly first, it is the closest thing to a free lunch, then cache your body until more broken down and ripened for easying eating, humans, without their tools or pack are the spam of the animal predators on land.
Mollusks, are slugs homeless snails?
concrete jungles, massive land reshaping, watersheds and habitats oh my..
Culture fads are memes, neo or retro, decade swirl is a 30 year offset…
