I am not a Cybersecurity Expert
I can code UNIX from scratch, though, and have played in the government playhouse enough to know how things work. I snagged Cisco assembly code a long time ago and found that interesting. I also remember SATAN (System Administrator’s Tools for Analyzing Networks) and if that ages me, so what. I’m old.
I find the antics of Jo/Ho and friends to be pathetic – amusing if we weren’t playing for such high stakes.
Daycare for Rich Kids?
Bill Maher, who doesn’t get it right very often, has characterized higher education as a grift. He said that they are, “giant luxury daycare centers.”
To a great extent, I think that he’s correct. Hard science – different animal, but most students tend to pursue softer studies, grievance appreciation, and so forth.
Harvard, Yale, the Ivy League and many other institutions of higher learning are said to be the place to go if you want to succeed. You meet the “right sort of people”. Hmmm. Yeah.
Gain of Function Research
Thanks to some confusing verbal gymnastics by Dr. Anthony Fauci, some in the media are giving the impression that there’s no proof U.S. tax money funded “gain of function” research or that, perhaps, the research didn’t qualify as a gain of function. However, the evidence on this point is clear-cut.
A 2015 published study specifically discloses that the research is gain of function research that took bat coronavirus that was harmless to people—and made it infectious in humans. The study further states that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) approved the continuation of the research even amid a general ban on such studies.
Many media reports refer to several millions of dollars in tax money sent from the NIH to the Chinese Bioweapons Lab in Wuhan via the New York-based nonprofit “EcoHealth Alliance.” However, research with the lab, and the lab itself, received significant additional U.S. support including:
- Grants directly from the NIH.
- Grants directly from Dr. Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the NIH
- Additional funds from EcoHealth Alliance were initially undisclosed.
- Assistance from the University of Texas. (See excerpt from the study below.)
- Resources from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). (See study disclosure below.)

Germans dominate the Midwest, Mexicans the Southwest, Africans in the South, with a variety of other groups on the map too.
The progs tell us that not wearing a mask is killing them. It’s been months. How much longer will it take?
In Australia, you need to show proof of age to purchase plastic knives.
You can’t make this sort of thing up.
Australians would not be comfortable in the Arizona mountains where steel and titanium blades are carried as a matter of routine.
They know that they’re cool.
