The Truth About Simone Biles
 Paul Joseph Watson

This is a good example of some of what I am seeing.  I don't know if it is a reaction to Biles or to the media reporting. 

Personally, I don't care.  I am not following the Olympics anyway.  I don't know enough to get upset over any of it.  As said above, she has enough trophies and medals to show what she is made of.  I saw it as she realized she was not at her best and for some reason wasn't going to improve so it was a chance to give the runner up a shot at things.  There might be more to it that will come out eventually, assuming anyone cares in another month.

I have a daughter who has been through a lot less than Simone Biles. My daughter just tried to commit suicide for the seventh time (that I know of).

Cut Biles some slack.

Now Biden is engaging in confabulation.  Another symptom of advanced dementia.

I recall early 2020 when the ANDROMEDA STRAIN  - - - - - - ooooops, covid19 pandemic was just starting seeing news clips of parents sending their kids to school all wrapped up, head to foot, in plastic garbage bags cut into a crude .... "biohazard" (  [tinfoil]  )  suit.

They were doing the best they could with the pretty-much useless information we had at the time. 

I was stuck at my parents' house then, going out once a week to Walmart during senior hours (I was old enough, my brother not quite) wearing an old N-95 mask that I washed so I could reuse it because we only had a few, then everything coming in the house got bleached or Lysol'd, including me.  Clothes went straight in the washer (hot water) and I took a shower.  My brother went back and sprayed everything I touched (like the doorknobs) with Lysol or alcohol.  When I went to the gas station, after filling up I washed my hands with rubbing alcohol before getting back in the car, then wiped down the alcohol bottle. I knew most of that that was overkill but I didn't know what part or how much.

Third olympics, many international competitions, survived Nassar and took him down. Think she has seen mental pressure and knows the limit. We should not deride mental health because at some point we all need a safe space even if we don’t use trendy words about our “trauma.” A lot of the world class race car drivers I have been around retreat into the front of the trailer and you leave them alone. They will get out and wave to the crowd when they survive a bad one. They will get in the backup car and drive it just as hard. But it takes a toll.

Looked over at the car next to me about a week ago and the guy is wearing a face mask, full face shield, and covered in plastic, while driving

The media screwed her.  I don't care about or follow the Olympics, but I know her name from all of the articles singing her praise.  Lot of pressure being their appointed hero.

Paid $3.90 today. Never thought I'd see $4 gas in Idaho, but it looks like I will before Summer's end. Thanks 46. Jackass.
