Now You've Really Gone and Done It

Girly. Girly. Girly.

What am I going doing with you? (I mean, that I havent done already.)

You are in so much trouble right now. You cannot possibly know how much trouble you are in.

After I finished watching the trailer for your Netflix special (releasing tomorrow) I thought, "Now you've really gone and done it."

You know that you cannot be doing shit like this ..

Ariana's Winter Solstice, Grand Conjunction, Netflix Special - excuse me, i love you - on 21 Dec 2020

.. and think you will get no response. No retaliation. Certainly not with something this provocative.

You know this better than anybody.

» The Elderly Die Alone, Their Lungs Filling with Fluid

The thing that got me thinking along these lines .. was when I heard doctor Rob describe the nature of the death experienced by those infected with the virus.

He is an emergency room doctor who is there when patients die. He says they die alone, their lungs filling with fluid .. until they can no longer breathe.

ER doc Rob Davidson describes harsh reality of dying from CoVid-19: 'You die alone, your lungs filling with fluid.' (6 Oct 2020)

Doctor Rob is there when patients take their last breath .. when they take that final gasp before giving up the ghost.

We all come to the place in life where we take our last breath. Nobody is exempt. Nobody gets out of here alive. But this is a horrible way to go.

That is a particularly disturbing way to die .. not being able to breathe.

I happen to know a little something about what it feels like when you simply cannot catch your breath. It feels like you are suffocating.

It is an extremely distressing feeling. I dont think anyone can really appreciate the sensation of not being able to catch your breath .. until you have actually experienced it for yourself.

» Historical Points of Comparison

Here in the US, we are already approaching a quarter million deaths from the virus.

CoVid-19 deaths in United States as reported by CDC on 14 Nov 2020

As a point of comparison, the Vietnam War, which lasted some 20 years (1955 to 1975) took the lives of 58K Americans.

This includes all deaths, such as accidents, homicide, and "self-inflicted".. whatever that might mean.

So we already have more-than-quadrupled the total number of deaths suffered during the entire 20-year Vietnam War .. and it has not even been a year yet.

For another point of comparison .. the total number of U.S. casualties, from all sources, during World War II, which lasted a number of years, was » 400K.

That should provide some historical context to the size and scope of this pandemic we are currently experiencing.

These are huge numbers. They are huge numbers and they are climbing so quickly. In other words, this coronavirus is a big deal.

» This Deadly Plague Continues to Grow

Rather than abating, the number of new infections continues growing to levels never seen before.

I bet that the gang over at WaPo know what I am talking about.

» First Death Curves Plotted from the First Available CoVid-19 Data Sets

This global plague seems to be affecting the elderly almost exclusively.

Chart of the odds of dying from COVID-19 by age group | Medicine with Dr. Moran (17 Aug 2020)

Almost nobody under the age of 55 has died. The death rate starts climbing around 65 or 70. See for yourself.

» A Clear-Eyed Look Behind the Numbers

The abbreviation IFR in the chart heading above stands for » Infection Fatality Rate.

Notice that they do not use the word death. Nor do they spell out the word Fatality.

If someone were to stumble upon this chart here without the good doctor present to break it down for them .. they might very well miss its significance.

The existentialist in me wants (likes) to see things as clearly and plainly as possible .. which will naturally include the ugly side of things along with the beautiful.

Soul Capture

It is actually still only the 30th of September right now.

Timestamp Wednesday Sept 30 2020 10:02 PM PDT San Diego

It won't be the 1st of October for a few more hours.

I was outside a little while ago and it was still very warm. The air is warm and dry and still. It reminded me of the nights I spent in the desert.

Hotel California weather. Colitas werent the only thing I was smelling those nights.

» Held Up Again by Super-Hotties

You know, I tried to capture this image here at exactly 10:01, as a way of mirroring the date, which is also 10-01.

(It's a quirky thing of mine.)

But I missed it. I was late by a minute. I was busy flirting with a super-hottie, and she wouldnt let me go.

I said, "I need to go. I need to go chronicle the end of the world."

She said, "Just five more minutes."

I said, "You said that an hour ago."

She said, "I know, but this time I really mean it."

I am not making excuses here, and blaming super-hotties .. but this is why I am late.

I won't mention any names, but she knows who she is.

I will try not to let it happen again .. because I know how important timing can be. (Eddie Glenn knows what I am talking about.)

Today is 20 August 2020. I could not resist posting an entry with such a rare, cool date.

Next year we will have » 19 August 2021. That is also a cool date.

But in order to get 3-of-a-kind on the date in August, you will have to wait 101 years for the year 2121 [ 21 Aug 2121 ].

I wonder if anybody took notice of the date back in 1919? [ 19 Month 1919 ].

We should do something extra special today .. as a way to help celebrate the day. Just you-n-me .. nobody else.

» Exploring the Entire Range of Moral Experience

I was thinking earlier about doing a little exploring today. I always enjoy the exhilarating sense-of-adventure that comes from exploring new things. From exploring new places.

Particularly when I am able to hook up with a beautiful creature who isnt afraid to join me .. and who doesnt mind getting in trouble now-n-again.

The last time I set out to explore new things .. I was joined by this dancer-chick. Ooh la la .. let me tell you. What a thoroughbred.

It always helps, I have found, to have along a super-hottie whenever you are exploring such realms. (Indiana Jones knows what I am talking about.)

» Fond Memories of Intimate Times

One of my favorite explorations .. was into a question that arose from a genuine curiosity. (On 23 Feb 2017.) She has been such a trooper. She seems to evoke a different part of me.

If you happen to run into her while you are out-n-about, tell her that I am sucking on a Godiva chocolate right now ..

I somehow feel like I am cheating on her .. every time I tear open another one of these wrappers and pop the heart-shaped chocolate in my mouth.

And especially while I am sucking on the creamy center.

Timestamp 2:20 PM for Saturday, 20 June 2020, San Diego time, summer solstice

Today is the summer solstice. The word solstice means 'sun stopping.'

This is the exact moment when the sun appears to reach its northerly-most point of 'travel.'

World map clearly identifies Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn

( It's really just a cool illusion .. because you and I here on planet earth, we are actually the ones doing the traveling. )

I am talking about the point-of-travel where the sun arrives directly over southern Baja California.

This is the point where it comes closest to those of us living here to the north  ..

I have not yet written anything here .. but I will be very shortly.

"What am I planning to write in this entry?" you ask? .. here in this page with such an inviting title?

I am sure that you will not be able to handle it.
