Lately I’ve been absent from Substack on Saturdays, because I’ve been using the early weekend to post watch repair threads on Twitter. Reminder to send me your vaccine (or infection-post-vaccine) stories at containment @tutanota.com. I’ll edit the gold you send me into at least two posts about this in the coming week.
Double unvaxxed. Unboosted. Maskless.
Stocked with IVM and HCQ.
Going through covid at our house right now. 11 year old daughter is positive. Moderate fever yesterday and spent part of day in bed. Today she's playing with her 9 year old sister normally. Younger daughter, wife and myself all testing negative. I've started FLCC protocol but so far feel perfectly fine. Not exactly the Black Death around here. Everyone unvaxxed except wife, who was coerced by government -- career would have been terminated.
67 year old curmudgeon here.
Other than becoming openly pissed at a lot more people that I used to tolerate, I have done pretty much nothing different in the last two years.
No mask (except an old dirty paint respirator I used to get thru the door at the local deli). No fake Ford Pinto injections. No social distancing except for the ones that avoid me, (usually the ones I'm pissed at).
I did gamble some funds to order IVM and supporting compounds from India, just in case.
No problems with the India company, but US customs sure studied that package for four weeks.
Wife and I got what we think was C19 back in September when Delta was all the rage, and I started us on the Ziverdo Kit within hours of the sniffles starting.
I had been exposed to someone that had been exposed to a bad case of Covid.
All three of us started the sniffles, and all three got over it within five days.
BTW, we saved the bad case, and within two weeks he was back to normal as well
Oh! One more thing that changed was that I stopped watching Fox after they helped throw the corrupt election.
That was fascinating and the blue face is awesome and gears in all manners always a favorite. As kids we had a darkroom and many hours spent dis-assembling broken clocks and watches to make contact prints.. super fun memory from a time when cast offs were the engines of our creativity and imaginations, thanks! :~)
Unvaxxed. Work with young kids. Not been sick once. Hug my students. Touch everything they touch. Have the entire time. Dont distance. Only one in my school NEVER SICK. Not once. All my colleagues vaxxed. All out sick. Repeatedly.
How did I not know you did watch repair threads? As an amateur horologist, now I’m excited!
Have you seen the Telegram channel "They Say Its Rare"? Thousands upon thousands of tweets from people or friends & family who were harmed.
This is somewhat related. Hubby and I never vaxxed. A few weeks ago he got Omi and was fine in a week...what troubling me is I tested negative throughout and after his illness. I also had no symptoms...so does this mean my immune system fought it off? Or that I had natural immunity from getting it at a time I was completely unaware? I'm very healthy including taking key vitamins recommended by AFLCCC
77 year old female here. I am unvaxxed and will remain so, no matter what. Luckily I’m retired so no pressure from a work place. However, here in Canada I have not been able to eat in a restaurant, attend performances of any kind, go to a cinema or museum, for a long time. Cannot go on a plane. Go swimming or to the gym. Unbelievable! Have lost some friends, but others, all vaccinated, are indifferent to my status. My family is all vaxxed, but all accept me as the odd one out. To keep myself healthy, I lost 26 lbs., and take a full array of supplements, D, C, Zinc, etc. At least I can still go out for walks!
Oh my gosh, your watch repairs are exciting. I need to take my Schatz clock apart, it is not working. I am not sure why.
I did indeed get the vaxx last spring. I feel foolish and regret it. My father (age 98) lives in a fancy retirement community Ashby Ponds. All wealthy people, private company. Anyway, they required the vaccine and I did get it just for that reason. Otherwise they were actually, and tragically forbidding entrance. Thinking back it was cruel. Many very good employees quit.
Anyway, after the second vaccine, yeah, my arm was sore, I came home increased liquid nourishment, and tylenol. Went to bed in the evening, the next morning I woke up in a crumpled cramped ball of pain. every bone in my body ached. I also had tinnitus and a head ache. The two last symptoms continues for about 10 - 12 days. I felt like garbage. I could not move around without feeling dizzy and some strange sounds in my ears. I did not have a fever, or I just did not take it.
The "bone pain" turned out to be tendonitis in my shoulders, knees, flexor tendons in my hips, and elbows. I still have it. I can move around and I do, I exercise daily, but the inflammatory process has not changed. Some nights I wake up a few times with hip pain.
I have been to several doctors and physical therapy. There are no lab changes, I had a CT scan, several xrays, - I just get stiff. My knees, oh my gosh, I am never not having stiffness and pain. I am going to a new ortho doc next week.
You are a man of many talents (and surprises), Eugyppius! :-)
My grandfather repaired clocks (and watches.) He used to have a big wind-up clock in a corner with pine cones for weights. The clock gave deep booming chimes very hour. Then someone gave my grandfather a cuckoo clock as a gift, so my grandparents lived with boom, koo-koo, boom, koo-koo every hour for awhile. Soon enough it drove my grandmother crazy and (she wrung the cuckoo’s neck) my grandfather disabled it. Fun memroies :)
MAKE CRAFTMANSHIP GREAT AGAIN!
containment or escapement!?
Flanker, known humorously as F-15ski because of stolen US technology incorporated in the design. Soviet designed mid-80's era air superiority fighter. Ukraine has about 2 dozen operational flankers and they are apparently flying combat air patrol missions in support of the invasion resistance. Social media has shown at least one being shot down. Ukrainian news agency reported a Russian flanker variant (SU-30) shot down over the Black Sea today.
