This is another iconic place to take pics at. My first time going there today and got this sweet pic of my bike.

Where am I?

Pretty sure that's not Shanghai.

Could it be the bus at Fish Springs/hot tub springs near the point of the mountain on the salt flats, Tooele County? I don't go past there very often, since they oiled some other roads across the West Desert. This would be on the Lincoln Highway, the old Pony Express route my gg GF rode.

I'm only down about 6000 from making it on the list of contributors in the postcount race. Peeks has lost his #1, by 20K, too.

Maybe I should try to run my numbers up again.

hmmm..... my join day was Pearl Harbor day, almost ten years ago. I came here because of Pearl...... no, not "The Pearl", but Pearl Watson/Dr. Watson/mamby-pamby Jazzfan. I talked to here this past week. She remarried in May. She might soon come back to fire spitwads at libs.

Hydroxychloroquine.....

says the current issue of The New American. Doctors have been using it a lot and just keeping mum about it, so their hospital bureaucrats don't give them crap.

The death rate from Covid is dropping off amazingly. Because, of course, the antibody test gives about 20% false positives, and some local lib wonks are passing out + results for free. Means big bucks for hospitals. And, I think the true positive rate for the antibody, which has a negative correlation to being in need of care, is as high as 20% now.

Given multiple effective treatments in use, and infection stats approaching herd immunity, I think we as a nation should be "Singing in the Rain."

This morning, while showering, I glanced over at the myriad products my wife uses. One has a label that says "100% PURE", but due to some letters being obscured by the shelf/holder it appeared to say "100% PUKE".

That is all.
Well, if I go back through this thread and re-respond to important comments, I think I could squeeze about 2K new contributions to my count.

Truth advertising almost always is accidental, as in the case of the wife's various detergents with added colors, flavors, smells, and snake oil. I'd just leave this argument alone though, if anyone were listening to me......

I should probably only do this when the house is empty and no one is around. Really, it's as bad as drinking alone....... not that Ineed alcohol to do that......

So I considered putting this in another thread, but I'm sure it will get more attention here.

Hydroxyquinone or Hydroxychloroquine.; Not sure what the Press is talking about or how the terms are used in labels.....




This is a very old and much used derivative of quinine.

quinones are something different, but have effects on virus replication. I think they are used in old photography developers as well, for their oxidative powers.

Quinones have been researched in some medical applications, including viral diseases such as Herpes and Dengue. Some of the effects are on DNA replication were some planars bicyclic quinones appear as intercalation interferences, essentially displacing a purine or pyrimidine base with nonsense and/or blocking transcription.

Other effects appear to be due to interference with viral attachment or entry into a cell.

But in regard to a Corona type of virus, I predict that its effects are two fold. Primary oxidation of the highly unsaturated oils which allow a Corona virus to attach without a specific receptor in the cell membrane, and secondary effects as antimicrobial oxidizer power.

Quinones are classic industrial reagents used very much in dyes and other products, including tanning products and photographic reagents, and it can be certainly assessed problematic in food applications, such as butylated hydroxytoluene , etc. Food preservative much used in many convenience foods.

Living things have to somehow utilize reduced carbon nutrients , and oxidized crap is poison.

Here's one of dozens of antivirals being developed for treatment of Covid 19.

The article doesn't say just what it is, that I could see.

Corona viruses have spikes coated with "glycoprotein", meaning the coded protein base of the spike is of a character that allows, and maybe be specifically processed to gain a coat of sugars, in this case I think mannose is the sugar. Almost all cell membranes also have glycoproteins particularly on receptor sites.
