    Friday fear: COVID will hurt your diaphragm, and your valsalva under heavy loads.
    In a cohort of 25 consecutive COVID-19 survivors admitted to an inpatient rehabilitation hospital (76% male), 80% of them had at least one sonographic abnormality of diaphragm muscle structure or function. Specifically, when compared to established normative data, 76% had reduced diaphragm thickening ratio (impaired contractility), and 20% patients had reduced diaphragm muscle thickness (atrophy). These findings support neuromuscular respiratory dysfunction as a highly prevalent underlying cause for prolonged functional impairments after hospitalization for COVID-19.
    Of course, more than half of these patients have diabetes and hypertension, and spent an average of 5 weeks in the ICU on mechanical ventilation.

    Worse, this study didn’t have a control group: they compared ultrasound findings to “normative” values, much like an MRI of your lumbar spine may be compared to a “non-degenerate” one. And those “normative” values are meaningless averages over a heterogenous population aged 20-83.

    Paul Joseph Watson has an incredible new piece that I will simply describe as a psychedelic mental massage to help you handle the prevailing psychosis.

    And I'll go ahead and post again, without the moderators approval, this heavy metal mashup by Five Finger Death Punch, that I presciently posted before the "election," and that is even more apt as we teeter towards the Twentieth:

    Anyone else got good artistic takes on all of this liberty looting to share? The Artistic metaphors somehow makes it all feel less surreal for me.

    And Bmueller, the issue with your comparison a few pages back is that unlike with the Democrats, the Republicans haven't called for, and the media won't demand, impeachment proceedings and special prosecutors for Biden's "president elect" calls and conversations to foreign officials.

    And jfsully, my issue with your qualified support of masking up, so long as some meaningless level of effectiveness can be found when used in conjunction with antisocial edicts, is this: when does it all fucking stop? Have you even thought that far ahead - what milestones could possibly be met that would allow an ineffective precaution like face coverings, against an unimportant viral threat, like a mutation of an upper respiratory infection virus, to be lifted? I fear your good intentions as a medical professional are aided "them" in digging a hole they cannot allow us to dig out of.

    Masks forever. Close friend, physics PhD, thinks this is reasonable.

    Us Austrians have flirted with the left from time to time, but we have a right leaning federal government at the moment and the states are a mixture of both. It appears that most left leaning parties in Australia have been infiltrated by the "Greens" and have pushed them further to the edge of the cliff. However like the USA we have among the right left wing sympathizers not unlike your RINOS who are white anting the Republicans from the inside out. This why your DJT is having such a difficult time because the enemy is within his own party. Also B Obama salted the bureaucracy and your 3 letter agencies with his own folk(s).

    To control the US government is the prize that many want and that is why this presidential election is such a stinker, you simply cannot have a nationalist running a government that wants to dominate global politics. That's my opinion, but I could be wrong.

    I laughed pretty hard at watching Bill "I'm not actually a scientist, but a TV celebrity" Nye tell me about masks using a spaghetti strainer and a wooden peg board and ball.

    Then I realized that mpalios posted this as evidence masks work. Is it too early to start drinking?

    Does it matter if they have or not? I know the answer, of course it matters. But in practical terms, it does NOT matter. Why.....because between the two of them, they have 20 million twitter followers.

    They say it, it's gospel...whether accurate or not.

    I wish...REALLY WISH...Briggs, you, etc, had influence over that many people's opinions. Between you, Briggs, Justin Hart, there's what....75k followers. Bill Nye/Neil's (stupid) message gets to more people, gets shared, shared, shared.....and that's that.

    Sorry wal, I didn’t mean to lump the Aussies in with the the rest of the leftist population, you guys are just jumping out as the penal colony gone mad thing. I guess this is partly because of what you mentioned, the radical leftist infiltration. But I think you will swim out of the muck, as crazy as your government is right now.

    But don’t confuse me for an American, as a citizen of Croatia, formerly of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, I have some intimate knowledge of where exactly the practices that the Western countries are dangerously flirting with lead. It’s all rosy for a while, then you get power reductions, meat rationing, civil war... It does take dozens of years, so maybe we can take some comfort in the words of the Marx of our time - long term, we’re all dead.

    Thanks for both of these. I enjoyed Prayther's insight.

    The Ivermectin testimony is powerful as hell. I've read it is an ionophore like HCQ; both drive zinc into the cells which inhibits virus replication.

    I take Quercetin (an over the counter ionophore) & zinc whenever I feel run down during this mess. Quercetin is also great for allergies and nasal congestion in general.

    Bottom line: this testimony again confirms we have to figure out how to care for ourselves, because the medical powers (like NIH) are misinforming MDs.

    Yes. Absolutely: "I CAN'T KEEP DOING THIS": Doctor pleads for review of data during COVID-19 Senate hearing - YouTube

    We were talking about this in April. It continues to be ignored.
