Hexing people is an important way to get out anger and frustration.
IMO, indulging in hatred and revenge doesn't get out anger and frustration, it just reinforces it.  It just makes you more likely to get angry and frustrated in the future.  I guess I have seen that general idea in other areas.

Missed this article until just this morning. Four months out and I still have smell distortion. Mine is mostly a chemical smell now. Initially I was experiencing sewer gas smells also. Like a trap under a sink was dry.

That chemical smell that so many of us end up with is very interesting to me. I guess I would have thought distortions would be more "natural" smells.

Well, I'm just going to say...

If she's against it, I'm all for it.

Well, *expletive deleted*it.  But when she's right, she's right.

Quote from: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
It is absolutely ludicrous that members of Congress can hold and trade individual stock while in office.

The access and influence we have should be exercised for the public interest, not our profit. It shouldn’t be legal for us to trade individual stock with the info we have.

Now if only she could pass a law forbidding the holding of stocks for legiscritters.

On post-covid Parosmia:

https://www.foxnews.com/health/long-covid-cases-bad-smells-tastes

The mention of the one girl and the shower was interesting to me, as shower water smells weird to me too. I didn't know more people had that symptom. In my case, it smells kinda H2S-like or Sulphur-like. Also though I can smell bacon again, it smells slightly different, as if there is a chemical-like back odor to it. Which goes for a few of both my phantom smells and "different" smells for stuff I smelled normally before. Everything that still doesn't smell right to me has some chemical secondary odor ranging from very slight to moderate.

Missed this article until just this morning. Four months out and I still have smell distortion. Mine is mostly a chemical smell now. Initially I was experiencing sewer gas smells also. Like a trap under a sink was dry.

Walking into a new room and especially pump hand soaps trigger my anosmia. The chemical smell is even detectible on my hands for awhile after washing. Walking into a new space will usually trigger a faint reaction. Food rarely triggers unusual odors when it's in front of me. Cooking going on while I'm in another room will trigger it though. I still don't have 100% normality in taste, pretty close though, I can enjoy food again.

There are a handful of other long covid symptoms I'm experiencing as well. Generally they manifest themselves if I push too hard on the physical exercise.

I've read that there's a pagan/occultic background to certain BLM practices.  So, true to their roots.

Has anyone actually used this, or is this an "academic exercise"?

Yeah, no.  They're Christians.  You guys keep them.

Actually, "cubic dollars" does make some kind of sense in respect to engines.  Calling cost in dollars per cubic inch displacement = "cubic dollars"  makes satisfying sense.

A real annoyance with me is this fad of tying all units to physical standards and then naming the new units after scientists. It seems like an exercise in anality.

"Pascal," for example, is too small a unit to be practical, so we're stuck with "kiloPascals.  I suppose I can get used to that, but wasn't a mllimeter of mercury also a pressure measurement based on natural physics, and called a Torricelli, or "Torr" for short?

And a Joule, which is a Watt-second has two (2, count 'em) scientists involved in it already. And come to think of it, a Watt itself is an Ampiere times a Volta and an Ampiere is a flow of Coulombs of electrons per second.

And who was this guy called "Second" anyway?

Or, for that matter, who was Mr. Gram or Dr. Liter, or Ms. Meter?

'Tis a puzzlement.

I haven't really looked into it, is there are resource that lists common food brands imported from China?
