Wednesday Weigh-In 20201118

So what kind of diet am I on now? No diet. I eat pretty much anything that's not processed. But I practice food combining, especially avoiding eating grains with animal protein. This makes digestion easier.

Wednesday Weigh-In 20200414

The virus is an amazing success; the human race, a terrible disaster.

The virus changed my opinion about the quote attributed to Harlan Ellison, Frank Zappa and Albert Einstein that I would paraphrase as "the two most abundant things in the Universe are Hydrogen and Stupidity." Even more abundant than stupidity is Greed. Greed is why we were so totally unprepared to deal with COVID-19 -- stock-piling N95 masks, ventilators and face shields is a drain on the economy. And now Greed is at it again causing governments to enter bidding wars just to ensure healthcare workers are safe and that patients can breathe. I am so terribly ashamed to be human.

Waist = 41.0"

Coronavirus Affect

A weird feeling showed up unexpectedly recently. There’s such a strong sense of surrealism about the pandemic that I’m starting to question reality.

What if everything outside my home is going on as normal, and it’s only me that’s imagining the pandemic? Maybe all my coworkers are wondering why I’m telecommuting and not coming in to work.

I’ve experienced this sense of unreality before. I would be attending a church service and singing a hymn. Then I’d get a glimpse of “true reality” where I’m being observed in a psychiatric ward. I imagine the clinicians saying to one another, “It’s almost as if he thinks he’s at a church service.” “Yes, he stands up, he sits, he recites parts of a prayer service, and now he’s signing a hymn.” “Oh look, now he appears to be putting money in a basket.”

And then a different sense of unreality surfaces. It stems from the lack of thorough news coverage, such as video of actual sick people and over-filled hospitals. Sure, people are citing statistics. We hear CDC recommendations. There are appeals for medical supplies and equipment. But it all seems like a fictional drama, or perhaps the fabrication of an oligarchy. Even people wearing masks in public and the bare shelves that once bore textiles could have come about from simple media hype.

How is coronavirus affecting you?
