Asymptomatic Transmission More Myth Than Reality (LSN) /span>

We will address the lie of ‘asymptomatic spread’ by using the exact words of Dr. Anthony Fauci of the NIAID. Fauci previously stated the following as he advocated shutting down society: “historically people need to realize that even if there is some asymptomatic transmission, in all history of respiratory viruses of any type, asymptomatic transmission has never been the driver of outbreaks. The driver of outbreaks is always a symptomatic person. Even if there is a rare asymptomatic person that might transmit, an epidemic is not driven by asymptomatic carriers”. Soon, and without scientific evidence, he and his fellow Task Force people reversed the narrative

We believe that he knew, yet sought to lie to the nation. In asymptomatic individuals, the viral load is typically very low, and the infectious period is also short in duration. Asymptomatic virus-positive persons (assuming they really are positive and have not been diagnosed based on an incorrect test) may still exhale virus particles which another person may encounter. However, the overall likelihood of transmitting the disease to others is negligible. Vanishingly small. Exceedingly small. Thus, asymptomatic cases are not the major drivers of epidemics.

Dr. Fauci and his staff, assisted by the media, repeatedly misled the nation, for they repeatedly told us that we would have to wear masks, socially distance, close schools, and shut everything down because of asymptomatic spread. Dr. Fauci’s recent emails, which exposed the issue of asymptomatic spread as being a non-issue, highlight the misinformation he broadcasted to the public. Recently uncovered emails show that Fauci stated that “most transmissions” of virus “occur from someone who is symptomatic” and “not asymptomatic.” His comments, repeated scores of times by national and international media, caused a loss of life, property, liberty and wealth to an entire generation.

Equally misleading was the premise that all infections equated to severe illness and potential death. This was not only an untruth but has led to scores of teenagers and people in their 20s fearful for their lives. They cower below their beds thinking they have the same risk as their 85-year-old grandmother with three grave medical conditions. This has not only devastated their outlook on the future, but driven them into a state of depression which has led to an increase in suicides in that cohort. We as a nation (and world) were fed mistruths, lies, and half-truths by what we can only describe as ‘fallen’ nonsensical, illogical, irrational, and specious medical experts on television, on the stage with their government bureaucratic leaders and academics.

Covid Cases In Jabbed Brits Soar 85% In A Week (Sun)

Daily Covid cases have soared by 85 per cent in vaccinated Brits in one week, data reveals. Around 11,000 people are falling sick with the virus each day compared with 6,000 a week ago, according to the ZOE Covid Symptom Study. Even though the jabs are highly effective at preventing serious illness and death, you can still catch the virus. The infection tends to be more mild and cause symptoms that are not the same as the official NHS list. Covid in fully vaccinated people tends to cause a headache, runny nose, sore throat, sneezing and loss of smell. Therefore the typical fever and persistent cough are uncommonly experienced by those with jabs.

Tim Spector OBE, lead scientist on the ZOE COVID Study app and Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London, said: “It’s more important than ever to realise this ranking because the pandemic is absolutely not over and lots of people are still getting infected. “We need to move away from the 18-month-old idea that this is just a fever, cough and loss of smell.” He added: “It seems unlikely that the government is going to change the official list anytime soon, so we are calling on people to spread the word. “If you or anyone in your household feels ill, do a lateral flow test and if you test positive, confirm it with a PCR test. It’s simple, if you feel ill, take a test.”

6 kids without any obvious comorbidities died in the entire 18 months. Lock them all up!

Children’s Extremely Low Covid Risk Confirmed By Study (BBC)

The overall risk of children becoming severely ill or dying from Covid is extremely low, a new analysis of Covid infection data confirms. Data from the first 12 months of the pandemic in England shows 25 under-18s died from Covid. Those living with multiple chronic illnesses and neuro-disabilities were most at risk, though the overall risk remained low. The conclusions are being considered by the UK’s vaccine advisory group. Currently, under-18s are not routinely offered Covid vaccines, even if they have other underlying health conditions that put them at risk. Scientists from University College London, and the Universities of York, Bristol and Liverpool say their studies of children are the most comprehensive yet anywhere in the world.

They checked England’s public health data and found most of the young people who had died of Covid-19 had underlying health conditions: – Around 15 had life-limiting or underlying conditions, including 13 living with complex neuro-disabilities – Six had no underlying conditions recorded in the last five years – though researchers caution some illnesses may have been missed – A further 36 children had a positive Covid test at the time of their death but died from other causes, the analysis suggests – Though the overall risks were still low, children and young people who died were more likely to be over the age of 10 and of Black and Asian ethnicity.

Researchers estimate that 25 deaths in a population of some 12 million children in England gives a broad, overall mortality rate of 2 per million children. Current data shows some 128,301 people in the UK have died within 28 days of a positive coronavirus test since the pandemic started.

Same study, but the BBC forgot the trauma’s.

Just 25 Under 18’s Died From COVID in UK, 100s Died From Suicide, Trauma (SN)

New figures released by researchers in the UK show that just 25 under-18’s died from COVID from March 2020 to February 2021, two-thirds of whom had “chronic” health conditions, and that lockdown measures aimed at children “may prove a greater risk than that of SARS-CoV-2 itself.” The numbers show that there is around a 1 in 500,000 chance of children dying from coronavirus in England, and that includes victims of pre-existing medical conditions, like heart disease and cancer. “More than 75 per cent of the children who died had chronic conditions, while two thirds had more than one underlying condition and 60 per cent had life-limiting conditions,” reports the Daily Mail.

During the same time period, 124 children died from suicide and 268 died from trauma. Studies conducted by researchers at University College London, the University of York and the University of Liverpool found that lockdown measures which remove children from social environments “may prove a greater risk than that of SARS-CoV-2 itself.” The numbers should inform the government when it comes to considerations of the pros and cons of vaccinating children, although don’t expect the story to receive much wider media attention. Earlier this year, experts in the UK warned that isolation and depression caused by lockdowns had created a “mental health pandemic.”

If Ivermectin Proven Effective Against Covid, It Moots Vaccine Push (Fox)

An evolutionary biologist claimed Friday that, should the anti-malarial drug Ivermectin be proven effective against the coronavirus, it would moot the usage of and potentially the ability to administer the U.S. coronavirus vaccines currently active under the Food & Drug Administration’s Emergency Use Authorization. Bret Weinstein – who previously made headlines after being pressured out of his biology professorship at Evergreen State College in Washington State for criticizing an anti-White “day-of-absence” – told Fox Nation’s “Tucker Carlson Today” that he has been analyzing the vaccines, and has summarily been censored for raising concerns about the shots and the medical establishment’s opposition to alternative treatments.

“[I]f Ivermectin is what those of us who have looked at the evidence think it is … then the debate about the vaccines would be over by definition, because the vaccines that we have so far were granted emergency use authorization,” Weinstein said, noting that the coronavirus vaccines are not formally “approved” treatments by the FDA and instead administered under the rarely-delineated category of EUA. According to the FDA’s own definition, an EUA is “is a mechanism to facilitate the availability and use of medical countermeasures, including vaccines, during public health emergencies, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic.” “Under an EUA, FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products, or unapproved uses of approved medical products in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions when certain statutory criteria have been met, including that there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives,” the agency said.

That last clause, Weinstein told host Tucker Carlson, is key to why it is important that Ivermectin and other established pharmaceuticals are thoroughly investigated as alternative treatments. “That emergency use authorization has as a condition that there be no safe and effective treatments available,” he said, noting that Ivermectin is old enough and established enough that it is “out of [its] patent” – meaning it can be produced generically – and has been proven safe and effective for other medical conditions. [..] “So if Ivermectin is safe and effective … then there shouldn’t be vaccines that we’re administering. They should be in testing and we should be finding out whether they are or are not safe,” said Weinstein, alluding to several serious cases of vaccine side effects.

Weinstein suggested that if the anti-malarial was proven effective, it would moot the Emergency Use Authorization for the vaccine. In January, the New York Post reported on a study of 573 patients that revealed only 8 who received Ivermectin died versus 44 out of 510 who passed away after being administered a placebo. However, the FDA in March warned against Ivermectin’s use as a treatment for COVID, explaining that “taking large doses of this drug is dangerous and can cause serious harm.” The agency also warned that humans can be harmed if they ingest the derivative formulation of Ivermectin meant otherwise for dogs and horses.

“If you’ve had Covid then there’s no reason you take the shot because it is extremely unlikely you will get any benefit from it at all..”

Enough With The Damned Mandates (Denninger)

Oh look what we have here! “But others experts say the concern about the Delta variant is overblown and returning to strict health measures could be harmful. Johns Hopkins School of Medicine professor Dr. Marty Makary told Fox News that guidance like Los Angeles’ “sends the wrong message” for increasing vaccination levels. “While 40-60% more contagious,” Makary said of the Delta variant, “the COVID in all its variant forms is circulating at very low levels in the population. The only people who should be concerned are those who do not have immunity either through vaccination or natural immunity.” “At this point, everyone at-risk has had the opportunity to get vaccinated,” Makary continued. “Those who are not immune are choosing to do so at their own personal risk.”

So why has Johns Hopkins imposed a vaccine mandate on its students and employees? If there was no risk for accepting a shot that would be a different matter than is fact. There is risk. If you’ve had Covid then there’s no reason you take the shot because it is extremely unlikely you will get any benefit from it at all and thus any amount of risk is unacceptable. You already took the risk with the original infection and survived. To take more risk without hard proof of benefit to offset said risk is stupid. For most young people it’s stupid to take the risk anyway because the odds of a bad outcome from Covid-19 are very, very low. This is especially true for Delta, which I remind you is the very same mutational pattern that every single pandemic virus in history has followed: More easily transmitted but less-dangerous — in this case, according to the data, somewhere around 10x less dangerous.

That is, statistically-speaking, about as dangerous as the flu yet the Covid-19 shots are, by the data, at least 100x more-dangerous than the flu vaccines given every year. Even with the original virus the shots were wildly more-dangerous on a ratable-to-risk basis than flu shots. That doesn’t mean they were a bad deal for everyone; even a very dangerous shot for someone with cancer that will clearly die if not treated is a good bargain, for example, because the outcome if you do nothing is final so any crack at a better outcome is worth the risk. But this is not true when (1) infection is not certain and (2) if you do get infected your odds at a base level are somewhere around 1/30,000 or less. For comparison your odds of being killed in a traffic crash are about 1/8,000 a year.

Covid-19 is an odd virus indeed in that unlike flu that has a 10x or so greater risk to older, more-morbid people, or Chicken Pox which has about a 25x greater risk in adults .vs. children this virus is, by the numbers, about 1,000 times more-dangerous if you’re fat, diabetic and hypertensive. With few exceptions, however, these are voluntarily-acquired conditions. For such people the shots are probably a good bargain — they may still kill or seriously injure you, but voluntary assumption of said risk either way is a choice, and one that adults should be free to make.

UK Regulator: Pfizer and Moderna Vaccines May Result in Heart Damage (Sp.)

The NHS announced at the end of June that over 45 million Britons had received at least one jab against the coronavirus, while 33 million were fully vaccinated. British health chiefs have discretely released a warning that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines may cause heart issues, MailOnline reported. The outlet noted that the British medicines watchdog had updated its safety information to accept that the condition is a possible side effect of both vaccines, without making a formal announcement. According to the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), complications are possible but rare and “typically mild”, as the “vast majority recovered with simple treatment and rest”. However, several cases of cardiac issues have been confirmed among those vaccinated, with inflammation of the heart muscle finally listed as a potential side effect by the MHRA last week.

According to data collected by the watchdog, by 23 June 60 cases of myocarditis and 42 cases of pericarditis had been detected among Pfizer vaccine recipients, as Britain had administered 30 million doses. At the same time, the Moderna vaccine distributed among adults was followed by five instances of myocarditis and two of pericarditis (900,000 doses had been administered in the UK). “Over 79 million doses of Covid vaccines have been administered in the UK, saving thousands of lives, and our advice remains that the benefits of getting vaccinated outweigh the risks in the majority of people”, Dr June Raine, the MHRA’s chief executive, stressed. “We have carefully reviewed reports of suspected adverse reactions involving types of heart inflammation known as myocarditis and pericarditis and we have concluded that the Covid vaccines made by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna may be linked with a small increase in the risk of these very rare conditions”.

Over 13,000 UK Women Report Changes To Periods After Having Vaccine (Sky)

The number of women reporting changes to their menstrual cycle linked to having a COVID vaccine has risen to 13,000.The figure has increased from around 4,000 women last month. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has so far received more than 13,000 reports from women across the country who have experienced changes to their period after having the vaccine. Experts say there is no evidence to believe the coronavirus vaccine affects fertility, but there are reports that some women are refusing to get the jab. Dr Viki Male, a reproductive immunologist at Imperial College London, said women should feel confident getting the jab and that reports of changes are not unexpected, as similar reactions have been observed with the flu vaccine.

She told Sky News that 25% of women who contract COVID-19 also see changes to their period. “We know that sex hormones affect the immune system and the immune system affects sex hormones and we have some evidence that the flu vaccine, given a certain time in your cycle, can slightly dampen the amount of progesterone you have, and it’s the balance between oestrogen and progesterone that builds up and breaks down the lining of your uterus. “So if these get slightly out of whack then we might expect to get a heavier period or a later period,” she said. These reports have led to fears among some women that the vaccine could affect fertility, fuelled in part by conspiracy theories promoted by anti-vaccination groups online.

As a result, experts are concerned that increasing numbers of young women are hesitant about the vaccine or refusing to have it altogether, putting pressure on the government’s plan to unlock the country as it relies heavily on high numbers getting vaccinated. Dr Male said there is no scientific link between the vaccination and fertility issues and warned that women can be more susceptible to problems during pregnancy if they contract COVID-19. She said: “We have quite a lot of evidence that these vaccines don’t reduce your chances of getting pregnant.

Haiti Requests US troops & UN Peacekeepers To Secure ‘Key Infrastructure’ (RT)

Haiti approached both the US and the United Nations for security aid soon after the murder of President Jovenel Moise, asking them to deploy soldiers to guard infrastructure in the event of unrest, according to multiple reports. The country’s elections minister Mathias Pierre said the request for US troops was made after Secretary of State Antony Blinken and President Joe Biden himself had “promised to help Haiti” in the wake of the president’s assassination earlier this week, the New York Times reported on Friday. He warned that “urban terrorists” could exploit current tensions and carry out further attacks. “The group that financed the mercenaries want to create chaos in the country,” Pierre said. “Attacking the gas reserves and airport might be part of the plan.”

While a Pentagon spokesperson declined to comment on the matter after being contacted by a journalist with Sputnik, an unnamed senior administration official later said Washington has no plans to send soldiers “at this time,” according to Reuters. During an earlier press briefing on Friday, State Department spokeswoman Jalina Porter said she could not confirm that such a request was made, though White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki did note that federal agents from the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security would be dispatched to the Haitian capital to assist “as soon as possible.”

Robenson Geffrard, a journalist at Le Nouvelliste, a major Haitian newspaper, echoed Pierre’s concerns about unrest, saying there is now a “sense of uncertainty” and a “shadow of violence” hanging over the country, which had already been in the grips of a political crisis even before the hit on the president. Haiti also called on the UN to send peacekeepers soon after the president’s death, according to a letter obtained by Reuters on Friday. Sent by Acting Prime Minister Claude Joseph on July 7 – the day Moise was killed – the message requested a troop deployment to “support the efforts of the national police” and help “reestablish security and public order in the whole territory.” The UN has so far offered no public comment on the purported request. The body’s 15-member Security Council would have to vote to authorize such a deployment.

“So much evil mischief has not been seen in one polity since Berlin, 1938.”

Is Reality “Baseless,” Too? (Kunstler)

Advice to the mindfuck-hesitant: When “Joe Biden” and Kamala Harris come to your door selling vaccines, treat them as you would, say, a couple of Jehovah’s Witnesses proffering Watchtower magazines: “Thank you, but I’m not interested in your organization… and please take me off your mailing list. Have a nice day!” Cue: sound of door clicking shut. Something tells me there are still too many sane people with a sense of humor left in this tormented land for the flunkies of “progressive” Wokery to achieve the total control they seek over the hundred-million, give or take, who are starting to think: Y’know, I’d kind of like my country back. And what country was that? It was the country we were before the Intel “Community” took over, in the service of an utterly corrupt political elite running the system like it was their personal cash register.

About that country I would like back… for starters, the country that valued the rule-of-law. Yes, I know, that’s awfully high-toned — the rule of law — as if one is invoking some clichéd bronze blindfolded babe in a negligee, hoisting a scale in one hand and a sword in the other. I’m thinking, rather, of a flesh-and-blood judge, perhaps a corpulent fellow with bad knees, of, say, the DC federal court, who would dare to throw out the malicious political prosecution of figures like General Flynn or the journalist Julian Assange… or an FBI that would make a criminal referral for sedition against Senator Mark Warner… or a newspaper editor who might be interested in the connection between Marc Elias’s Lawfare outfit at Perkins Coie and the Central Intelligence Agency. One could go on endlessly with the pungent hypotheticals. So much evil mischief has not been seen in one polity since Berlin, 1938.

Anyway, the country we live in now no longer observes the rule of law because it has become a security state like the former Soviet bloc states, with a rogue Intel “Community” that has hijacked the truck that the wheels of justice run on. Here’s a thought: do we know for sure whether the CIA might have been involved in the late, lamentable 2020 election? Wow, that’s outside the box! But, hey, why not? Think of all the fakery they are so capable of engineering, and consider how avid they were to get rid of that pain-in-the-ass Donald Trump (who wanted to get rid of them!), and also consider that there is really no check on their activities whatsoever because the supervising authorities are 1) Adam Schiff’s House Intel Committee (bwaha!), and 2) the aforementioned seditious scoundrel Mark Warner’s Senate Intel Committee. These two are so owned by the CIA that they must have a standing weekly TGIF session to peel grapes for the C-suite at Langley.

    There is this tendency for humans to fall into their silos of their beliefs and then filter out any contrary voices or data. Every so often I find myself doing a reality check — needing to see whether or not I am doing this too excessively.

    So I was thinking about my firmly held position that these Covid vaccines are bad news — the 2,000+ increase in VAERS really hit me this morning. (Although, it was low for a couple of weeks, could have been a backlog that were suddenly released, etc., I recognize that I don’t know how it works behind the scenes.). But then I realized, hey, wait — the alternative position is that these vaccines are SAFE! (TM), with no explanations for the deaths and other adverse reactions. The alternative side is downplaying the adverse reactions, “it’s just a few,” scare-mongering folks into getting vaccinated. Those pushing the vaccine have no narrative that acknowledges the grim facts of those injured…rather it is trying to hide the reality of vaccine injuries. Occam’s razor is a beautiful thing. The Covid vaccines are dangerous.

    phoenixvoice: “Those pushing the vaccine have no narrative that acknowledges the grim facts of those injured…”

    And there is a noticeable lack of explanation for why the Covid vaccines are causing such injuries. The mechanisms and effects on the various parts of the body are not really understood. Lots of ignorance and uncertainty.

    It’s a crapshoot. If we dig, we can find some estimated odds (so many injuries and deaths per million), worked out in hindsight, and subject to worsen as more data comes in.

    @Germ, V.Arnold and Oxymoron:
    First, I assumed V.Arnold lived in Chiang Mai, too, but I was wrong, too.
    I tried to get my family away, and we did go away for 9 months of traveling around the world with bikes and backpacks in 2005-2006. I interviewed for a job in Christchurch, New Zealand. Those were the early Bush-11 GWOT years, and I already knew about who did 9/11 and why, the GWOT… They were not going to take my children. You may recall the calls for a new draft back then.
    It did not work, except the trip worked. The kids all became young adults. They started as 12-15 year old kids and finished as 13-16 year old young adults. Next, I worked a couple more years in Austin, then started working gigs in rural Hawaii, on Hawaii, The Big Island. The younger kids went to school there for a day. When Jenny and I finally moved there, it did not work out for the clinic finances, and half a year later, Austin accepted us back. Social capital, and criticality of transitions were brought to light. The kids are all alright. The girls got COVID, and took ivermectin, zinc and doxy. Everybody takes D. Everybody has a job.
    Somebody has to help save America after the crash. Looks like we are elected.

    Yes? Oh! I know who you are! You’re Biden’s people! You feel sooo bad that you have taken the vaccine and you are seeking answers about your future. Well, I can tell you I have been to a number of websites that will help you fight the spike protein your body manufactured- or, if you are pretty far out from your last injection, you wanna know if you can prevent ADE… You could google it but of course anything you might want to know has been censored by the people who know better. So I am sooo sorry that I can’t help you- although from what I understand, Ivermectin could still help you if you happen to get sick with Covid, as your injections really didn’t do much about that. Do I want to join you in your miserable situation?
    No, thanks. Goodbye.

    I think its important to note that I had always thought, that if ever I lived in another culture/country, my priorities would be to avoid enclaves of westerners…
    I have been succesful in doing so…no westerners in our village (except me) and none I associate with in our larger area…
    As a result I speak a passible amount of Thai (a very difficult language) which affords me freedom of movement and independence.

    I put this together hoping some will find it helpful; anxiety is pernicious; not to be underestimated…

    There’s been some discussion regarding anxiety caused by the stresses of the Corona virus “pandemic”.
    Anxiety is the product of our concerns for our health, lives, and safety of our families and friends. But, that word describes a lot, but is rarely defined and that is a big problem; and our deteriorated mental health is a direct result.
    Put in the simplest terms, anxiety is psychologically/mentally living in the future or the past, or (usually) both, alternatively.
    Put another way, anxiety is not living in the now or, present moment.
    I posit (and not alone) that anxiety is not possible if one resides in the present…
    Because most of us do not normally inhabit the present, it is exceedingly difficult to actually do so, or so it seems…
    There are simple exercises to keep one in the moment…
    The dialogue runs like this: speaking out loud to oneself:
    “Now I am sitting in a chair typing this script.” Now I am looking out the back door at a swaying mulberry branch; now I am leaning back reading the words I’ve just typed. Now I am getting up to get a glass of water; now I am drinking from the glass. Now I put the glass down and am returning to my chair; etc., etc.,
    This can be done for any activity such as a walk, driving, cooking, or cleaning the house…any activity…
    The preface with the word now is important, sort of an anchor of the moment…
    I hope this is found to be helpful in battling anxiety; far better than any drug. As said before; this is not as easy as it may seem; but with diligence can be extremely helpful…

    V. Arnold

    I thought I’d add that the above exercise for negating anxiety is intended as a daily meditation; not just for anxiety attacks… 🙂

    From somewhat eclectic readings a differing point of view arrises, what has been popularly filed under psychopathy, psychopath here is actually a vital species survival mechanism. Given that there are two methods of solving problems used by the species; one using very quick emotional response, the other using somewhat slower but rationally response based upon memory and experience rather than emotion to resolve a problem. Once tribal respect for their elders is one of the results of that difference in facing problems. Modern social complexity has rendered that solution asunder allowing some of those displaying ‘rationality propensities’ to develop without guidance or direction into destructive behaviour the popular ‘culture’ likes to use to scare and frighten us with. To use the vernacular definition in a professional manner can only lead to misprision of professional vocabulary. The English dictionary has surpassed a million words, they all deserve to be used correctly. YMMD


    ” Once tribal respect for their elders …”

    Your admitting to this gathering of elders that there is a lack of respect for our accumulated knowledge.

    I agree.


    hexadecimal posted: Trump should look into suing the CIA, NSA, FBI, CNN, MSNBC, DNC, etc, etc, etc, for the coup attempt of Russiagate. He should pick a nice round number like a trillion dollars for publicity. ..

    Make a fantastic all out show attack and sue the lot of them…! Demand huuuge (as Trump would say) reparations! Maybe, extravagance can serve!… but:

    Trump’s present suit will give him ‘bigly’ plus points in the camp of the “deplorables”, and his supporters, and the few (?) who are by principle, independent of personas, attached to a functioning heh “** democracy **” aka the US as a representative republic, those objecting to all-out corruption, manipulation of votes, etc.

    Problem: DT can’t win in the courts (imho, after the stolen election and the fact that the judicial system basically refuses to treat this matter) – Twit and Co. are private companies, and much more. It will all drag out in time, and have only negative (from a Trumpian pov) outcomes, conclusions.

    Going all out would brand him as a nutter who has lost, it would be said, what slim grip on reality he had —> to being mocked as a senseless and disruptive and nefarious complainer, litigator, doing harm to USA’s great democracy and stalwart people, creating divisions, so to speak, while, to boot, wasting everyone’s time.

    But maybe there are some wild things he could do that would be flash and have unpredictable results. IDK, it is interesting to think about. (Nothing will happen.)
