Linus Torvalds Tells Anti-Vaxxer To Shut Up On Linux Mailing List – Slashdot

Please keep your insane and technically incorrect anti-vax comments to yourself.

You don’t know what you are talking about, you don’t know what mRNA is, and you’re spreading idiotic lies. Maybe you do so unwittingly, because of bad education. Maybe you do so because you’ve talked to “experts” or watched youtube videos by charlatans that don’t know what they are talking about.

But dammit, regardless of where you have gotten your mis-information from, any Linux kernel discussion list isn’t going to have your idiotic drivel pass uncontested from me.

Vaccines have saved the lives of literally tens of millions of people.

Just for your edification in case you are actually willing to be educated: mRNA doesn’t change your genetic sequence in any way. It is the exact same intermediate – and temporary – kind of material that your cells generate internally all the time as part of your normal cell processes, and all that the mRNA vaccines do is to add a dose their own specialized sequence that then makes your normal cell machinery generate that spike protein so that your body learns how to recognize it… Source: Linus Torvalds Tells Anti-Vaxxer To Shut Up On Linux Mailing List – Slashdot

Dia dos Namorados comigo!


Beijem-se, troquem carinho e experiências ricas em afeto, não só neste dia, mas em todas as oportunidades de suas vidas. Namorar, a gente namora todos os dias. É uma canção, um poema, uma pessoa especial. Veja, o que estou querendo dizer pra você é: ame o mínimo que puder, o que for possível, mas ame- se verdade. Seja inteiro em tudo aquilo que faça, porque ‘poucos são os que amam verdadeiramente’. O que muitas vezes vemos, por aí, é uma “produção teatral […]”. É tanta gente dizendo: ‘Eu te amo’ sem sentido, e no no final, se você prestar atenção, existe um eco abafado de um sentimento inacabado[…]. Amor não é contemplação, é ação diária, é corrida de janeiro a janeiro, carinho afeto e atenção o ano inteiro.
Ame porque o tempo passa, não porque passa sobre todas as coisas, mas porque…

Old-growth logging opponents blockade major Vancouver intersection |

A move to pause old-growth logging in areas of southern Vancouver Island this week has done little to stem opposition to the practice, as protesters took to the streets in Vancouver on Saturday. Demonstrators with the group Extinction Rebellion marched from Vancouver City Hall to Broadway and Cambie streets, with the plan of disrupting traffic “indefinitely.”

Submarine Warfare – July 1945

Pacific Paratrooper

Submarine tender, USS Anthedon, Australia 1945

From: the true story of America’s “wolf packs” and “life guard” teams –  “Sink ’em All”. by Vice Admiral Charles A. Lockwood Jr., USN.   “Uncle Charlie” spent 39 years in submersibles.

My long-delayed visit to Admiral Fife’s command finally got underway in a PBM from Saipan, 20 July 1945.  Cavite and Manila were pitiful to behold.  These once beautiful and picturesque Spanish-built cities lay in ruins.

On the north shore of Subic Bay, 60 miles up the coast, I found Jimmie Fife building a submarine base and rest camp in jungles where, in bygone days, we hunted wild pig and deer.  Two pile-built piers extended into the bay, while 2 American and 2 British tenders with submarines alongside, lay at anchor farther out.

Aboard the tender Anthedon, anchored off the Base, I found Cmdr. Dick Hawes, an old friend from earlier submarine…

Life’s Philosophy

Shayan's Sphere

When withered leaf departs from tree
and sings in tune her plaintive songs,
and obscure souls retire and flee
abandoning all earthly wrongs;
when sparkling stars of the mystic sky
embrace this Earth in their dreamless sleep,
and the beauteous streams with elegance dry
biding their bye to the colossal deep!
I behold the Sphere, this world of pains,
the golden crowns and the silver chains;
the hues of loathing and ill-desires
smashing this world with burning fire.
the shadows of gloom and baffling fears,
the laments of poor, their silent tears;
the terrors of wars and wild damage,
the savage diseases and worldly rage.
But still, they fear the tyrant of death
and still, they desire for tranquil whiles,
those ardent feelings with every breath
and bouquets of past with winsome smiles!
And thus they clash and thus they spread
the notice of love with blooming chests,
and then…

Saudi Arabia says hajj to be limited to 60,000 in kingdom – The Washington Post

Saudi Arabia announced Saturday this year’s hajj pilgrimage will be limited to no more than 60,000 people, all of them from within the kingdom, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The announcement by the kingdom comes after it ran an incredibly pared-down pilgrimage last year over the virus, but still allowed a small number of the faithful to take part in the annual ceremony.

Alphabet soup for the soul – “X”

Words from Walden

X is for -” X marks the spot

“If ‘X’ marks the spot of the destination of our life journey, then ‘Y’ should be the reason we’re choosing to go”

– Cedric Crawford-

The phrase ‘X marks the spot’ has a couple of different attributions. One version is that old pirates would bury their treasure and the way they would remember where it was, was by placing an X on a map close to a landmark that they sought out as the burial site.

Another version is that it was used by the British army. When performing executions, A soldier would mark a piece of paper with an x and positioning it on the heart of someone sentenced to death.

Somewhere along the line we became less barbaric in the approach to this phrase.

For the purposes of this article you are X and X marks the spot where…

Growing And Using Thyme for Health

Ideas and Advice for How To Live a Joyful and Empowered Life.

Last summer I had one Thyme plant.

This season I have four – I started a new plant by dividing the Thyme I had and I bought 3 others.

The new 3 are Lemon Thyme, English Thyme and Pizza Thyme.

Here are some photos:

These all make a tasty tea. Sometimes I drink it on its’ own and sometimes I mix it with other herbs for flavor and more health benefits.

To make tea, use 1 tsp. dried or 1 Tbsp. fresh per cup. Put the herbs into a teapot or cup, poor boiling water over and steep at least 10 minutes, then strain. If using fresh, chop the herb so there is more exposed surface of the leaves to extract from. Sweeten with your preferred sweetener if you wish. I also use Thyme in Herbal Syrups For Health, Refreshing Ice Water and More! and Mixed Herbal Iced Tea for Health Benefits
