Morning CoSo, grab your beverage of choice, and get that run in early; the dog days of summer are well and truly upon us. ☕ 😓

When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies

Good Morning everybody. Here’s one of the best things I ever recorded. I played a very unpolished version on yesterdays live stream.... thanks to everyone that tuned in for a bit. geraldburkhart.bandcamp.com/tr

Grifters! The whole lot of them. This is being investigated in the EDNY. 🤔 Maybe that's why Barr reassigned the prosecutor.

Neutralizing misinformation through inoculation:

Exposing misleading argumentation techniques reduces their influence.
By John Cook , Stephan Lewandowsky, Ullrich K. H. Ecker

"Similarly, inoculation theory proposes that people can be “inoculated” against misinformation by being exposed to a refuted version of the message beforehand. Inoculation messages equip people with counterarguments that potentially convey resistance to future misinformation.

I said, watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical
Liberal, oh fanatical, criminal
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're Acceptable
Respectable, oh presentable, a vegetable!

Yeah, my blood's so mad, feels like coagulatin',
I'm sittin' here, just contemplatin',
I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation,
Handful of Senators don't pass legislation,
And marches alone can't bring integration,
When human respect is disintegratin',
This whole crazy world is just too frustratin',
And you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

What if we said COVID can kill unborn babies if we all do not wear masks?

It might work.

During World War II, the Allies mapped bullet holes in planes that were hit by Nazi fire.

They sought to strengthen the planes, reinforce areas heavily damaged by enemy artillery to be able to withstand these battles even more.

The immediate decision was to rebuild and reinforce areas of the plane that had more red dots (or received more bullets). Theoretically, it was a logical deduction. After all, these were the most affected areas.

What are you looking at in this crisis? Where are you taking bullets or where should we act?

But Abraham Wald, a mathematician, came to a different conclusion: the red dots represented only the damage to the planes that were able to return, that came home.

The areas that really should reinforce, were the places where there were no points because these are the places where the plane would not survive being hit.

This phenomenon is called survival deviation. It happens when you look at the things that have survived when you should focus on the things you don't.

Yes. This administration has proven to be unfathomably cruel. I think they thought the rural nature of their base of support would insulate them from mass death, but now that we see that's not the case, their prideful nature won't let them course correct.

Self above all

@MarianneWerzOBrien You're completely right, that relationship is going to go down in flames, at the cost of so many lives. At any rate, I'm grateful to live in a state with a compassionate gov. Stay safe!

It's so bizarre that there's a daily covid caseload of over 15K in FL today and DeSantis is like "whatevs" but here in MI we've been ranging 250-700 daily cases and Whitmer is like "I will shut this shit down swear to God"

but 3 weeks in the mid 90's has stressed porch pots to the extreme so today we planed them outside our bedroom window. Fingers crossed!
