    i did last night
    i like sleeping in a very cold room but didn't realize the dog had opened the door
    how fucked up would that have been if i died because my dog went outside?
    reading on the symptoms its hard to say how close it was but i had relaxed at some point curled in a ball after several hours of uncontrolled shaking
    stupid but it just never occurred to me i might be freezing to death
    apparently it can happen in as little as an hour in 30 degree temps and that's what the last two nights were
    locked the door last night lol

    yeah, we in the west probably have very little understanding of how freezing works in comparison to an eastern guy who has to live with the threat all his life
    but i think it may signal thin arteries or poorer circulation or some other latent issue that messes with the ability of the body to keep steady temp while the outside temp is falling
    when we were young we didnt feel this kind of thing
    i didnt know what a sweater or a jacket was until i was an adult
    but i bet we also believe that when we were young the temperature did not fluctuate this extremely so quickly
    the shock effect of weather changing up on you every couple of weeks must also have effect
    coupled with how we like to live in areas that are closer to the authority of the air which is a pretty violent judge
    the air likes to fight, it is a chaotic maelstrom by nature that collects all the pollen and spores and life and blows it up your nose

    ... judas, man ...

    I'm glad all is well. I truly would be a great loss for mankind to see you out forever because of low temps in California and a dog's arbitrary decision to leave the house.

    Tomorrow is a likely snow day - the kids' first ever. Heater is on here now. We don't have a dog so no worries there.

    Tell your mom we say hello. I'll hit someone with a snowball tomorrow in her honor.

    Scary shit bud, I am happy to be able to read the tale of the night
    Freezing to death in Socal, gotta be one of the softest ways to go
    Even if the reaper was present, he knew he could not do the devil like that

    FOMO is a mother fucker
    I know my rules, I know my plan
    My strategy for these swing trades is almost the exact same as my futures plan, even down to the instruments traded. One instrument I am trading is designed specifically to mimic the Nasdaq.
    That said, I find FOMO being such a dominant force that I justified going against my entire plan because I had a gut feeling that I couldn't ignore and I justified it and executed the trade within a matter of several seconds.
    It didn't work out as planned as hoped and I am honestly happy it didn't. I cannot deviate from my plan and my method of entry. If it isn't there, save the ammo for another day. No if ands of buts about it.
    I was 0.03% away from my trade executing fully and it being a "success".
    The market fell apart shortly after nearly having my shit fucking trade selling and being a success.
    The trade remains open for as long as needed until it hits the target and it is a "winner" but this trade in my mind is a loser and nothing can change that because I was weak and wrong when I submitted it.

    I am loving this experience.

    Maybe they should put me in a straitjacket

    Plagues + China = spectacular together !
    Just read a comprehensive article on world plagues throughout history...seems like the Black Death ( with the old Harkkonen bubos) was started in Western China...can't beat em on this front.
    Cathay rules!

    1st shower in a week brilliant!
    really hope i'm on the other side cause that wasn't fun
    guess everyones going to get different symptoms but that's as beat down as i've felt in a very long time
    when the cough kicked in i must have spit out a couple of quarts of infection
    literally couldn't sleep for 3 nights and when finally closed my eyes sitting up i'd bite my tongue hard that was special
    got a mouth piece so no more tongue trauma
    the z pack has to have helped a lot as well as a shot of cazadores here and there
    if we all are going to get this one i hope your experience is less severe
    fuck i've got a farm to run!

    I just gotta say man that I've been operating at almost semi human levels.
    I wanna say thanks again.
    My boots have been moving and my neck has been going north from six.
    It smells like bleach and pine sol all around.
    Tables are being turned and flower pots being raised.
    The rain slowed me down and literally put me bones back in the cage.
    But as soon as I could be outside in the moonlight again my vitamin d came back.
    Went to the farm and got a team full of chickens to give me a full roster of egg suppliers who been following me around as I drag the hoe around and they reap the worms.
    But one of my two white hens ran off and I had to go into the bush to look for her.
    I don't do that anymore. I can't handle the poison ivy rashes anymore. I get hyper bad reactions.
    But fuck it I totally forgot and was in there getting the chicken out of these nice giant nests at the root of trees that I assume foxes make. Also found the wide ass trail the bear family made to come up to the back of the house everyday this fall.
    But now I'm on my fourth day of feeling like someone threw acid in my face and thermite on my balls.
    It's cool though because once the burns are over it's like you had one of those microdermabrasion chemical peels.

    Found the bag I was looking for by cleaning out the closet.
    Out with all the old furniture.
    Better to sleep on the floor on top of a pile of Korean blankets from the swap meet than on a dead busted mattress.

    What I'm trying to say is thank you.
    For everything, for bringing lala, for what you said, for what you didn't.
    My head is in a better place.
    And my body and everything else is following along.
    Not every day.
    I'm still technically dying.
    But not today!

    I'm down for whatever you need.
    Like chuey.

    sorry to hear this devil, i've had it too
    my symptoms were different, but it still sucked
    massive headache that wouldn't go away, body aches, and head/chest congestion
    i slept okay, but every morning when i woke up it felt like i'd been in a car accident... seriously
    didn't completely lose my sense of taste or smell, but it was definitely compromised
    attacks everyone differently like you said, but definitely seems to be worse the older you are
    vowed i wouldn't drink until i felt better, so it's been about 10 days
    but that nonsense ends tonight...
    [​IMG]
    felt slightly better yesterday, a little better today...
    anyway man, hope you're past this shat too brother

    Everytime you get the corona and beat it you make it have to regroup into a more virulently but less dangerous strain until it's a minor inconvenience.
    It's gonna hurt some of us more than others and more will get it so the numbers game will get it's share but that's the best way to beat a virulent plague
    By teamwork.

    Everyone gonna get this new weaker but more virulent version of virus thanks to the unvaccinated who have been guinea pigs and allowed their bodies defenses to create antibodies for the rest of us to receive from exposure to you in order to help in the war against the enemy.

    Once you beat the corona you go from a soldier in the war to an army recruiter giving out swords to new recruits so they can go to the front and fight for their lives.

    Face swords over face shields.
    Shields are a false sense of protection.
    Besides the best shield is a parrying sword anyway.
    And you guys wielding high carbon steel.

    i was taking an occasional shot just to burn the shit in my throat and it hurt
    had zero appetite and didn't eat legit for a week i look completely different and think i dropped 10 lbs.
    this morning i was dreaming of a supreme croissant and it was the first thing since Monday
    slept a full night last night and i was in heaven
    took care of an errand and the drive was almost psychedelic w really vivid colors and everything looking new
    i think i'm past it but my balance and equilibrium are still off so baby steps
    kind of hard to keep my thoughts and deeds in line but i'm feeling more and more human
    the dogs are super extra happy to see me moving around again
    weird i don't even know if i was that sick symptom wise but man did it pin me down
    glad to here you're emerging as well fuck china
