DeSantis faking height. I know he's out of the Presidential picture, but this needs to be seen:

I had no idea this was going on.
I'd always thought there was something off about him, and it was the way he walked: he's wearing shoe elevators, so his toes don't reach the front of the boots.

This is so frigging obvious!

Why the hell did he wear white boots to the other visit? That only brought attention to his feet.

Man I hate republicans.

If trump had been a U.S. Presidential candidate at any other time in U.S. history, he would be a fucking JOKE!

What is going on?!!!
I thought this Twilight Zone episode ended when Biden won.

Man: we share this country with a bunch of fucking idiots.

'Jobs may disappear': Nearly 40% of global employment could be disrupted by AI, IMF says

CNN:
‘Jobs may disappear’: Nearly 40% of global employment could be disrupted by AI, IMF says

Almost 40% of jobs around the world could be affected by the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), a trend which is likely to deepen inequality, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

In a Sunday blog post, IMF chief Kristalina Georgieva called for governments to establish social safety nets and offer retraining programs to counter the impact of AI.

“In most scenarios, AI will likely worsen overall inequality, a troubling trend that policymakers must proactively address to prevent the technology from further stoking social tensions,” she wrote ahead of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, where the topic is set to be high on the agenda.

So who the hell will be able to buy what corporations are selling with AI made goods?

Neighbor with possible long term COVID, but never had COVID.

A neighbor of mine flew overseas last year. When he came back, he had a slight cough (throat clearing) and was miserably tired. Doctors have been unable to find the cause after about a year.

Their latest guess is that it's long term COVID. However, he's never had COVID.

Is it possible to get COVID, not know it, and then have long term COVID? He WAS on a plane, so that guess by the doctors makes sense.

Suspect in Los Angeles 10 Freeway fire...

I'm guessing (if this is the man), that he has been or will be knocked off by whomever paid him to do it.

Source: CNN


CNN —

A 23-year-old German-Israeli woman who was kidnapped from the Nova music festival by Hamas militants on October 7 has been declared dead, the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs has said.

“We are devastated to share that the body of 23 year old German-Israeli Shani (Louk) was found and identified,” the ministry posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Monday.

A source involved with her identification told CNN Louk’s death was announced after forensic examiners found a bone fragment from her skull.

And they did this, and other evil torturous killings in the name of their god.
There was screaming, pleading, bleeding...
some people just can't be awakened from a brainwash.

CNN live footage as Gaza was under bombardment. Distant "call to prayer" audio is astounding!

https://www.cnn.com/videos/world/2023/10/13/israeli-airstrikes-gaza-aaron-cohen-nn-hnk-vpx.cnn

It's a great interview, but you have to hear the call to prayer. It starts at 2 minutes in.
I find it creepy sounding. There's so much dissonance—I guess because it's mixed with the sirens wailing.

War is fucked. If I were to guess, I would say God is napping.

Happy to be vaxxed!

Just got another COVID jab. Since the beginning, I've been getting Moderna. I had an appointment with RiteAid, but they came back after a few minutes with "your insurance is denying covering the vaccination." I called them, but they were closed.

So I drove around, found another pharmacy. Asked if I could get a vaccine. They checked the insurance. Everything was fine, but they only had Pfizer. That was fine with me.

I still don't know why RiteAid said my insurance wouldn't cover it.

If I may tell a vaccine anecdote:
When I was young, I had a job that was VERY busy during the holidays. Our manager (an ex Sea Bee), told us we had to get a flu vaccine (the company was offering it to employees). We didn't think at the time that there was a choice, and me and my co-worker weren't excited about the jab in the arm, but we went and got the shot. I was nervous and tense, and the thing hurt my shoulder for a week.

Later that year (December 31st to be exact), I went to a party that dozens of my friends were at (which included my roommates). It was a small 1 bedroom house, packed with people partying for a few hours.

Well, January 1st came and went, and then by the January 2nd (which was a Saturday), every single person that I knew at that party was horribly sick in bed with the flu—including my roommates. Rumors said that "so-and-so" had come to the party sick, and unknowingly passed it around.

I was talking to someone on the phone who was also sick from the party, and told them that I was feeling great. It was like I was the last man on earth: nobody wanted to go out and do anything.

I didn't realize it then, but years later it hit me that I had been vaccinated for the flu earlier that year. Thanks boss!

I have been get the flu vaccine every year since. There was one year that I guess they got it wrong, and I got a very mild flu, but believe me, it's worth it to get vaxxed.
