Assuming these numbers are correct, which is debatable but it’s the data we have, what leaps out at you? So, China claims to have been hit very hard, had videos of people collapsing in the street, etc., and yet it appears that the vaxx rates in their enemies are the highest? I can’t imagine why Mongolia is as high as it is, with loads of resources and a resurgent nationalism and sense of identity, right on China’s border with Russia, might get priority shipments, can you? Competitors, resources rich nations, etc. tend to have high vaxx rates. wonder why that might be, while China still has a vaxx rate in the single digits.
An interview with Dr. Sean McMeekin, author of “Stalin’s War,” one of several books he’s written about the former Soviet Union and Russia.
Links to his Amazon page here, though I’d recommend you buy his books elsewhere if you can for various political reasons.
I’ve read about self-sealing fuel tanks, usually in reference to WWII aircraft, but I never learned how they work. Came across the following video to explain it. It is surprisingly simple, and he’s got a pretty nifty demo to illustrate it, too.
Interesting video on current political/social trends. Very good first 3/4 of it, sort of goes off the rails from my perspective near the end, but still makes some good point.
At least, diversity is not a strength the way that the left typically promotes diversity. Now, for many of us this isn’t a surprise. But it’s always interesting to see the specifics well-documented by others, especially those who are generally predisposed to believe it is. Continue reading Diversity isn’t a strength
(written for some other writers looking for ideas on how to do stuff. Sort of a brain-dump, so don’t expect great flow and organization, and this is a paraphrase of events) Continue reading A short summary of how I got my start writing
So, my brother is working on a project in the middle of Alaska. There is a store that that has literally thousands of books in the basement. Old books. Like… many have Klondike era import (to AK) dates. And printed well before that. So he texts a pic to my eldest, an avid reader. A bookworm who has 4 years of Latin for her foreign language. He sends her a pic on an ancient tome and asks if she like to come up and pick up fifty pounds of hundred-year-plus old books. The book is one of a set of four in Latin, in Alaska, been there a long time. The kid darn near is vibrating with excitement. BOOKS! OLD BOOKS!!!! ANCIENT, even! No idea what it says (not great at Latin, but she can read it properly and recognize some of the root words, but details are lost), but it’s very cool looking. She’s too busy to go right now, but… yeah, she’s a nerd of the best type, the book-nerd. By luck, hard work, skill, or the grace of God she seems to have turned out pretty well.
