5.  Virus [2]

Oh great. Doing a series of experiments here.  This one was trying to read a dead tree book, admittedly about Kennedy.  Thirty seconds – convulsions.  OK, can’t go online, can’t read a book, what next?

3.  Virus [1]

Not theirs, the one I still have three days of.  The surefire way things are better is when the fingers don’t burn when the ipad opens, the eyes don’t blur and the point in the throat doesn’t get triggered – it was that way for half an hour last evening.  Progress.

Today, even now, the non-radiation has radiated out and convulsions are triggered.  The ipad is interesting.  To test Ivan’s theory, I put it six feet away, flat on a box looking up, started a youtube and went over to a seat.  I could not see the screen.  Convulsions within a minute.  Went over and closed the ipad down, about three minutes later I was fine again.

This was also the case a few years back when I had the skin lesions from the epoxy or the glue from the ply.  A side effect was exactly this I’ve just described with the devices.  If it’s not radiation, then whatever it is – non-radiation perhaps – it’s pretty aggressive.

This might be the last post for the day, let’s see if things improve.

1. Valentine’s Day message

Women who have had 10 or more sexual partners face DOUBLE the risk of cancer because STIs such as HPV can trigger the disease and promiscuous people drink and smoke more, study suggests

I would suggest that if she’s had more than three over the journey, that number being subsequent husbands, then not only is she truly a skank but she doesn’t understand the female metabolism.

As for men, I immediately think of Charlie Sheen as one of the worst. Would you make your body available for one of these?

    “can trigger the disease”: oh balls. Cancer isn’t a disease; it’s a thousand diseases with similar symptoms.

    My late ex wife worked at a large nursing ran by an old Psychiatrist who told her that when he was working at an Asylum, most of the patients had GPI ( general Paralysis of the insane) last stages of syphillis… he also told her one of his first jobs was interviewing members of the Black Watch who had been caught compromising sheep… i related this story to an old soldier who remembered a dutch farmer painting red hackles on sheep!

      I think that your old soldier friend was “pulling your leg”.

      A farmer puts a red die on the chest of his ram(s). He can then see if a ewe has been “served” as she has a red mark on her buttocks. Any sheep not “served” are separated and put in a pen with the ram.

      Sorry to spoil a good story.

        Farmers have marked sheep for centuries they are called Smit Marks and are nothing to do with breeding so the Red hackle stands!

          Smit Marks are for identification, they are on the shoulders and backs of sheep. They can be of various colours.

          The red dye (I forget its name) on the arse of the sheep show the farmer that the ewe is impregnated, as the soft (almost semi-liquid) red dye on the chest of the ram is transferred during mating.

          I lived around Oban in Argyll for 10 years and often worked with a farmer who had about 200 sheep on Ben Cruchan.

            Smit Marks are for identification…. so the farmer was identifying his ewes as wives/ girlfriends of the Black Watch.. a red ear if i remember the story

    4. Haha! Of course the Earth is flat coz everybody knows ships can’t sail uphill.
    That was actually a reason given by some guy at a conference at the intellectual centre of the known Universe – Lytham St Annes – some years ago. And no I wasn’t an attendee – it was in a vid on Y/T.

    If the Earth was flat there’d be an East Pole and a West Pole in addition to the N & S. (joke)

    Anyway, everyone knows it is footstool shaped. 😉

    5. What’s next? Erm… sit inside a Faraday Cage … listening to an audio book?

    Have you tried putting it in Flight Mode, or disabling Bluetooth, WiFi, even G,1,2,3,4,5 – whatever phone links there are?
    Does on charge or on batteries make a difference?
    Or knit yourself a onesie Faraday cage. With fine metal mesh face mask.
    And people laugh at Al foil headgear.
    But, seriously though, I wish you well.
    And thanks for your output.
