When this first started I joked that we didn't have enough information to k ow if we could even take aspirin with the bug.
Sometimes we carry more weight then we owe.
And sometimes goes on and on and on.

So, how long before sales of aspirin are prohibited?
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Aspirin?  You mean that canine anti-inflammatory drug?

Sure, go ahead and take a risky drug that can cause gastric irritation and bleeding.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead

If you read the article. The known mode of actions of aspirin on the human, does make sense on lowering the risks of blood clots due to some covid infections.

I take a full strength aspirin tablet every day because of the known risk of Factor V Leiden.

Maybe we should all get ourselves a pulse oximeter for Christmas.  You can get a good one at Amazon for under $ 30.

I've got a good finger one, but also have one built into my Fenix 5X watch. I have compared them enough to see that the readings vary by no more than 2%, usually 1%. I wear the watch 24/7 and have the O2 meter set to constant monitoring (vs  sleep monitoring). Eats more battery, but I like being able to monitor the levels on a 24 hour graph. It would be nice if it alarmed if levels dropped below a certain point. The watch has an "abnormal heartbeat" alarm, but nothing for the oximeter.

My Samsung S9 had a very neat sensor that took a bunch of biometric readings in conjunction with the Samsung Health app.

My new S20?

Nope.

What I know about the covids...
 
It will swim upstream in beer taps, but only after 11pm.
 
It is attracted to building entrances, but is scared to death of dining tables.
 
It loves quarters, but isn't so worried about pennies (we can't get more than two rolls of quarters from our bank).

They say the problem with coins is that they're not recirculating the way they normally do. So it's supposed to be a problem of distribution; not supply. FWIW

It would also help if they were silver coated also, but I doubt that will happen.

Interesting story on testing methodology. I have no knowledge of biological tests like PCR, but in other scientific and statistical tests, cycles and iterations are certainly something to be well aware of, especially if there is some fairly linear and discrete cutoff that can change results.

Quote
Regarding the diagnosis of COVID-19 through widely-used PCR tests, the senators said that the CDC and the FDA’s setting of one particular test parameter—the cycle threshold—generated “false positives resulting in inflated numbers of COVID cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.”

Harvard epidemiologist Dr. Michael Mina told The New York Times in August 2020 that tests with too high of a threshold may detect not just live viruses but also genetic fragments. Mina suggested setting the cut-off at 30 cycles or less.

Thatcher expressed concern over the cycle threshold of 28 when testing vaccinated individuals. According to the petition, a low cut-off is likely to “eliminate false positive results and thereby reduce the number of vaccine ‘breakthrough’ cases.”

Psaki: Biden Wants To Use Pandemic To ‘Make Fundamental Change In Our Economy’
https://www.dailywire.com/news/psaki-biden-wants-to-use-pandemic-to-make-fundamental-change-in-our-economy?utm_campaign=dw_newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_source=housefile&utm_content=non_member

Quote
“The president wants to make fundamental change in our economy, and he feels coming out of the pandemic is exactly the time to do that,” Psaki said. “And if we don’t do it now, if we don’t address the cost of childcare, to go back to Josh’s question earlier, if we don’t address the climate crisis, if we don’t ensure that universal pre-k is a reality now, we’re not going to have the same opportunity to do it for some time.”

So getting out of this pandemic may not be their primary goal.  And you wonder why some want to question everything that comes from the FedGov on this subject. 

I don't know if this is a case of "saying the quiet part out loud", but I always feel that 30 years ago a Democrat official would say the same thing, but in a much more subtle and more deniable way.  The left has very little subtlety these days.

Trusting liars is always a dangerous proposition. I've opted out of trusting them.

It sucks being cynical about your rulers, I wished to believe the best of people, but the proof is in the puddin'. We're ruled by the evil, deceived and stupid for the most part.

It eliminates a lot of cognitive dissonance (see below) coming to terms with the reality.

I went to Aldi yesterday, and about half the shelves were empty.  (there was plenty of TP, but I didn't need that)  It was kind of alarming.  They said they are having trouble getting supplied from their warehouse.
