      Spidey Senses Triggered – Weird Things Discussion Forum

    Replying to your Original post WCJ, I get exactly the same thing on Skype calls – the occasional typing noises, and it’s not us.  We don’t use autocaption.  Also, in the interests of a better pic, we’ve upgraded our webcams, and one of us now has cable to the house.  Still, a minute into each call our pic goes blurry – I usually put it down to the rural lack of bandwidth and/or my buffers getting stuffed.  I do however make a joke about it and say that’s GCHQ signing in, I wish they would bring some extra bandwidth with them !

    Many a true word spoken in jest, eh?

    On the banking side, I would just like to note that our local rail station is phasing out cash handling on the ticket machines – pretty soon to go by rail we’ll have to pay by card.  Which is another way of tracking, especially for people without phones.

      MRNA vaccines similar to Mad Cow Prions

    So google – prion disease, quinine.

    I’m not being enigmatic, the above search was inspired by a twitter post that was too far-out for my comfort, although I’ve saved it in case you want that too.

      MRNA vaccines -how long before we know they’re safe?

    If the GOM mice are anything to go by, then effects of the prions should turn up about 18 months from the first rollout.  But there are confounding factors:

    1stly, not every jab in the 1st 6 months contains the product – see elsewhere for the reasoning behind this, in brief it’s to ensure buy-in in the first wave.

    2ndly, in 18 months time there will be the same if not more stranglehold on the media, so you’ll only know from your mates & the grapevine (as now)

    3rdly, the first cohorts to get the jab were the elderly so it would not seem unusual if they developed prion symptoms and/or Alzheimers in 12 months time.

    Truly, if you can wait 18 months you don’t need a vaccine.

      Menstrual cycle issues (due to shedding?)

    above tweet includes a link to the original for those who are able to translate.

    China Feihe Chairman Leng Youbin said at the China Entrepreneurs Forum: “Due to the impact of vaccine injections, many mothers and fathers cannot become pregnant within 6 months. It is expected that the sales of milk powder will have a cliff-like fall.”

      Menstrual cycle issues – how is your vItamin D level?

    I’ve got my daughter (same issue, not so bad) on vitamin D supplement. Having just seen the article below from May 2018, I’ll recommend she increases the dosage.

      Homeschooling – suggestion for early Maths

    We had a free account on the Prodigy Maths website for a few months.  You might take a look- it lists the curriculum objectives for each year, and the portal provides an engaging game for practice and reports for parents.  My 10 yr old played on it until the schools were ready for online learning.

      Homeschooling – experiences and advice please

    I’m  potentially homeschooling this autumn for age 12yrs, because UK hasn’t ruled out the possibility of vix-ing all 12yr to 15 yr olds before the summer holdiays.

    I’ve homeschooled previously, for age 11 yrs to 14yrs.  My kids went to primary school, and instead of going to secondary school after that, they stayed home with me and homeschooled for 3 years. At 15yrs when their contemporaries would be starting 2 year GCSE courses, the local education board got twitchy and persuaded me to enrol mine in the local college – they each took 5 GCSE subjects in their first year putting them a year ahead of their peer group.  They took core subjects the 1st year – maths, english, sciences – then another 3 subjects the 2nd year, and A levels after that.

    Subsequently, one was accepted by Aberystwyth University -“we like homeschooled students, they bring a different perspective”.  The second has worked her way up to  Shift Manager in a Cardiff pub.

    Happy to expand on particular details if needed.

      The next “Pandemic” – Important early notice about what we have to expect

    the disconnection of all critical devices from the internet.

    I heard it as the disconnection of all vulnerable devices from the internet.  It makes no sense to drop the internet entirely, and it makes perfect sense to boot everybody else off and keep it for your own operations.

    I’m still expecting a second virus.  I think covid has been a dress rehearsal for something more ‘interesting’.  That is to say-

    • 1st, you have a tabletop exercise
    • then, you have a live firedrill  < we are here
    • then …?

    So perhaps we should discuss: how much of your “new normal” relies on the internet?

      Should I get my first Pfizer dose right before travel/likely exposure?

    Here is the graph that Chris covered in one of his videos last year.  Chris pointed out that immunity was only effective from (about) 10 days after the vaccine.

    The graph below is hosted on this article

    https://www.businessinsider.com/how-well-pfizer-shot-works-against-covid-19-2020-12?r=US&IR=T

    graph of the Pfizer vaccine trial results

    I have no explanation for why Norway appear to be saying you would be protected during the first three weeks.  Maybe the typist accidentally omitted the word “not” ?

    An adverse reaction to a previous shot is a big red flag, I wouldn’t risk having the jab for this reason.  An already wobbly immune system is another good reason to avoid the jab.  To spell it out- the vaccine puts an extra burden on your immune system, and it takes 10 to 14 days for a normally balanced immune system to right itself after the vaccine.  In the early days the vaccine doesn’t “add” immunity to your system, it takes a large portion of it offline before it gets rebuilt.  A bit like having to shut down the computer to install an update.

    I’d look at supporting immune function with a generous vitamin D supplement whichever you decide.

    Quarantine sounds expensive, but this page (below) details the possibility of completing quarantine at home under some circumstances.

      Should I get my first Pfizer dose right before travel/likely exposure?

    I don’t understand this bit –

    Pros: In Norway where I live, the health authorities say I’m just as well-protected as if I were fully vaccinated, for the next three weeks.  Because of that, there would be no quarantine when I get back, as opposed to mandatory “quarantine hotel” for 3-10 days (they pick the hotel, I pay a bunch of money to quarantine there).

    Will you have to quarantine

    • a) if you get the jab
    • b) if you don’t get the jab ?

     

    I’ve heard that the immune system’s capacity is pretty reduced in the first couple weeks following the shot

    I agree with this, but I’m not much help finding a link to the data.  For me, it was a slow path from Chris’ first graph showing results of vaccinations, and it taking 14 days to build immunity, and a growing realisation that following the vaccine, your immune system takes a hit – so that anything you might already be infected with – including SARCov2 –  and coping with quite well, would suddenly become overwhelming.   If you do decide to take a vaccine, you could reasonably test for Covid before taking the jab.  If your test comes back +ve it’s too late to vaccinate.

    This guy mentioned it, but without  linking to data.
