    I'll be importing some stuff from the previous forum, but here's something new to start:

    How To Get Medieval On MRSA: Ancient Superbug Slayers

    -Antibiotics in everything from fish food to hand soap is causing drug-resistance in multiple bacteria.
    -Peak antibiotics means "herbal remedies" will become more effective.
    -Garlic, ginger, honey, apple cider vinegar, and onion have anti-bacterial properties without the side effects.
    -1,000 year old Leechbook recipe destroys 90% of MRSA


    Antibiotic Resistance Beginning To Affect Treatment | http://www.anonymousconservative.com/blog/antibiotic-resistance-beginning-to-affect-treatment/

    AC links an article about increasing antibiotic resistance. This is the bottom line:

    "...WHO analysis concluded that antibiotic-resistant pathogens are now present in every part of the world—jeopardizing a century of medical advances."

    How did this happen? Here's part of it:

    "I used to know a Fisheries Biologist who ran one of the largest catfish farms in the US...

    He once explained how rigorously the USDA controlled what they put in the water. He was not allowed to treat his fish with antibiotics...

    At the same time, he talked about how across the border in Mexico, they were using everything, even including steroids, to bulk the fish up. And the fish needed meds to keep them alive...

    Since it is Mexico, the USDA had no oversight, and the Mexicans didn’t care, because everything was being filleted and shipped up north to get the rich Americans to buy it at higher prices..."

    Basically, we are flooding our food, bodies, and bathrooms... with so many antibiotics... that the only bacteria left are supermutants immune to most drugs.

    So how do you fight mutated freak bacteria that eat penicillin for breakfast? Well, you can double and triple up on antibiotics... But that just means even deadlier bacteria down the line.

    When technology fails, it's time to go medieval:

    1,000-year-old onion and garlic eye remedy kills MRSA - BBC News | http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-32117815

    "Scientists recreated a 9th Century Anglo-Saxon remedy using onion, garlic and part of a cow's stomach.

    They were "astonished" to find it almost completely wiped out methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, otherwise known as MRSA...

    ...The remedy was found in Bald's Leechbook - an old English manuscript containing instructions on various treatments held in the British Library."

    I'm putting the recipe here in case the original article breaks down.

    Bald's eye salve:
    [​IMG]
    Equal amounts of garlic and another allium (onion or leek), finely chopped and crushed in a mortar for two minutes.

    Add 25ml (0.87 fl oz) of English wine - taken from a historic vineyard near Glastonbury.

    Dissolve bovine salts in distilled water, add and then keep chilled for nine days at 4C.

    More broadly speaking, eating more 'real food' and less shit will create a 'force field' that repels common illnesses. Ginger, honey, garlic, onion, etc. all have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. I'll probably share some simple recipes in another post.

    I think it's worth printing hard copies of anything one feels is valuable. One day, the US will turn off the internet, or heavily restrict access to it.

    Marketing/Sales is one of the most trainable, and most useful skills in the world. Marketing can seem slimy, but it's more like one of those claw hammers from the hardware store. You can use it to break a window, sure. You can also use it to build a house. You can use it to make 100 grand writing a couple emails every morning, and turn the basement of your house into an underground vault complex.

    Here's a couple of the top minds in the industry literally giving away their million-dollar secrets:

    H/T Aeoli for this one.

    Lot of self defense books talk about ninja shit or how to feel like the ultimate badass. This site gives the most readable, practical guide to self defense I've seen. As in, "How do I stop criminals from targeting me?"

    Less "I want to be Chuck Norris," more "I want to make sure my TV stays in my living room, and I don't get stabbed on the walk home."

    The articles about the different psychologies of, say, a robber vs. a stalker were great. The site's chock full of information that immediately "makes sense"... but that I wouldn't have thought about on my own:

    How to detect Gamma personalities, and why to exclude them from responsibility in a project:

    Alpha Game: No Gammas allowed | https://alphagameplan.blogspot.com/2016/10/no-gammas-allowed.html

    "WHAT?! Attitude? What attitude?! I'LL CALL YOU A PRICK AND INSULT YOU ON EVERY SITE YOU WRITE ON! Now I'm going to leave bad reviews on your book because you're a prissy drama queen. That'll show people that YOU have the attitude!"

    Don't they notice that the meltdown makes them look bad? No. Too busy creating a fantasy world where every action is a genius checkmate move.

    See this archetype in movies, the guy who HAS TO BE IN CHARGE but sucks at his job. Secret King is a good summary. Instead of hardcore self improvement to be the best, or handing off the role to a more competent person, he says he's the best while running the thing into the ground.

    It's literally easier to crash the plane with no survivors than to to acknowledge a mistake, and bruise his own ego.

    How To Tell When Someone Is Fucking You:

    Basically: If you have a reasonable problem or question... and they act like you're an idiot for even asking that question, and there's NO WAY that this is even an issue... that guy is fucking you.


    For example, this guy is fucking you:



    Asking this guy for clarification, giving him a chance to be honest... would end up giving him more time to lie through his teeth. He's fucking you. Fuck that guy. He's a liar, and he's betrayed your good faith. It is morally wrong to give him fair treatment after such a betrayal.

    The F-word is there on purpose. If someone is fucking you, you need to have the disgust/disrespect/cold contempt emotions activated so you can stop them. Sympathy is dangerous here. Getting angry, caring about it personally can make you easier to provoke.

    IRL Example:

    I used to get oil changes from Sears. One day, I went to Wal-Mart instead. The guys there said Sears broke my oil pan, and they can't do an oil change or they'd be liable. They also said not to let the Sears guy put an oversized plug in there or no one else would change my oil, also because of liability. I also checked another oil change place, they told me the same thing.

    So I went to Sears. Explained that I wanted a new oil pan. Not a plug.

    The guy not only denied that there was a problem, he said there was no way it could of happened, and implied that I didn't know what I was talking about. "Look, there's this thing called a torque wrench, there's no way we could have overtightened it. Naw, you don't need a new oil pan, we'll just put the plug in. We do oversized oil plugs all the time, it's no big deal. I've never heard of anyone having a problem with oil changes at other places. Are you sure? Okay, look, we'll give you an oil change and look at the thing, see what the problem is."

    He changed my oil, and put in a damn plug. The thing that I said I didn't want him to do at the beginning. Also didn't do paperwork on it, which saved me when I finally went in for it.

    Had to go through two managers. The last one I talked to was also suspicious, then found out the other guy did work without paperwork, and the guy admitted to it. She let out a long sigh, like, "Ugh... Fantastic..." and agreed to change the pan.

    If I took the guy at his word, I would have never tried to confirm at other oil change places, and probably wouldn't have been ready to go for management.

    Now, sometimes you are just misinformed on a topic.
    BUT: Generally, honest people will answer even stupid questions semi-respectfully.


    Consider: "I bought RAM online, but there was no download button."

    Honest person: "*inner sigh* Maam, RAM is a physical computer chip you plug into the inside, you can't download it. We should be shipping it to you now, look for it Wednesday."

    Fucking you:
    "What do you mean, there's no download button? Are you very familiar with computers? Our database says you may have actually downloaded TOO MUCH ram, but we won't charge you for it this time."

    Even if you know nothing about computers, you can tell that the second guy is probably fucking you based on this heuristic. If someone is talking to you like you're a moron... to cover for something that they might face consequences for... they are probably fucking you. Suspend your general prosocial good faith agreement and do the asshole thing.

    Good for you in taking it to management, I do the same when required, sadly all too frequently these days, so many companies provide poor service or have rules that suit them at our expense.
    Always fight for your rights.
    I was up at the gym Thursday evening around 6pm, and the car park was jammed, literally full. Cars were parked out of bays by kerbs, but they weren't blocking access.
    I saw a car move out of *space*, except it wasn't really a space. So, it was a car-sized space, but behind it was a gate to the all-weather sports pitch, the gate was unmarked, I assumed it was for access for maintenance vehicles. No markings on the road or *space* to indicate parking prohibited.
    Anyway, I stick my car in the *space*, I'd been doing laps of the car park for 5 minutes, and was pushed for time. The jobsworth (does that phrase cross the Atlantic I wonder?) car park attendant catches me as I near the gym entrance.
    'You can't park there Sir'.
    'Why not?'
    'It's not a parking space'.
    'There was another car just parked there'.
    'Well, it shouldn't have been, it's an emergency access route to the gate'.
    'Can I park here (a disabled spot)?'
    'No sir, that's a disabled spot'.
    (I was just having fun with that question).
    'Well, I have to use the gym, I have to park somewhere'
    'If you park there, I'll have to ticket you'
    (I am starting to lose patience, plus there is nowhere else to park).
    'Hang on, there are no signs that mention emergency access'
    (I go back to the car to check for signage...nothing).
    'Right, there's nothing saying emergency access, or no parking, I'm leaving it there, ticket me if you want, we'll go to court if need be'
    (It is a private car park, so it would just be a civil matter anyway).
    I complain at reception, a junior manager asks if I'd like to fill in a customer feedback form, but he was basically disinterested, as it's a separate company managing the car park. Too much hassle for him to actually go outside and DO SOMETHING.
    When I get back to the car, there was no ticket, the car park guy backed down, probably realised he was talking bullshit.
    I took some photos of the area and the gate anyway, in case he ticketed me but didn't leave a ticket, don't trust anyone.

    So, yeah, I'm with Boneflour, always fight your corner, especially when it's clear someone is trying to FUCK YOU.
    FUCK THEM INSTEAD.

    This is a good lesson and needs to be repeated to aspies at intervals.

    Glosoli, you were the aggressor in your example. The guy didn't ticket you because he knew you were aggressive and his boss might stab him in the back for doing his job in an unpopular way. You should apologize to that guy if you see him again, barring additional context.

    There's usually an additional, more abstract aggressor in situations like these, who's enforcing artificial scarcity in the first place in order to profit from such conflicts of interest.

    Nope.
    He was being a jobsworth, and I just defended my corner. He tried to intimidate me by mentioning 'emergency access', which was pure BS, I faced him down, he didn't ticket me because he knew it would fail if it ever got to court.

    I'm with Aeoli on this one, Glosoli, but it might be a cultural thing.

    This is why the "fuck that guy" thing is so important. It turns off the abstract wisdom stuff so you can focus on not getting taken advantage of in the moment. Self awareness/empathy lets you understand the systemic reasons for what's happening. The dude mugging you may have been born with no father, and then abused in foster care, and now he's just a bundle of pain that he can't understand. Sometimes people just get pounded by the system. Understanding that kind of thing makes it hard to just blindly hate someone. There's wisdom in this line of thought.

    But wait a second. That guy is trying to fuck you. Aw hell no. Fuck that guy.

    It is not your job to care about an outgroup that is trying to kill you. They have family, feel pain, have hopes and dreams, sure. So do you. Why don't they let you mug them instead? Because they're trying to fuck you. Fuck that guy.

    It's like that story of the monk and the scorpion. It is the scorpion's nature to sting. It is my nature to squash bugs that try to sting me. Fuck that bug. (What do you mean the story doesn't end that way?)

    I stopped killing bugs this year. My cats get fleas from the rodents they catch, the fleas get in the house, they bite me sometimes. I used to drown them, now I just throw them out of the window.
    I will always stand up to iniquity (a cool word that Jesus liked to use). I've suffered my fair share of it, will probably suffer some more before I die, but I'll always challenge it hard. And not seek revenge either. Car park man might have had a rough upbringing, I did him no harm, I was polite, he realised I wasn't standing for his iniquitable behaviour, he could still have ticketed me, and a court would have decided if he was correct. (Strictly, they're not even *tickets*, as it's private land, they're merely speculative invoices).

    This is as good a place as any to share this article I read last weekend whilst in Cardiff:

    Thrown in jail at 71: The disturbing story of a grandmother who refused to bow to social service orders and move an OAP from the care home he loves | Daily Mail Online | http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3838911/Thrown-jail-71-disturbing-story-grandmother-refused-bow-social-service-orders-OAP-care-home-loves.html

    Fucking heroic old lady. Fuck that court.

    I remember some Tex blog post talking about how Aspirin was actually incredible for you, and he takes some every day just because. He got some incredulous looks on that one. "Really? That high dosage, every day? Wouldn't your stomach bleed?"

    Vault-Co: Dementia Epidemic | http://vault-co.blogspot.com/2015/08/dementia-epidemic.html

    Turns out there might be something to it:

    The Most Potent Life Extension Substance Ever - Rogue Health and Fitness | http://roguehealthandfitness.com/potent-life-extension-substance-ever/

    "Willow bark was the most potent extract, extending lifespan 5-fold
    What really caught my eye was that the most potent substance they found was an extract of willow bark. This the same source from which aspirin was derived.

    Willow bark contains salicin, which when metabolized in the body becomes salicylate, an anti-inflammatory and pain-killing chemical. In the new paper, the potent life-extending willow bark extract contained “>25% salicin”.

    The technical name for aspirin is acetyl salicylic acid (ASA). When metabolized, the acetyl group is split off, and the active pain-killing substance, salicylate, is generated. (Aspirin has two modes of action: the anti-platelet (“blood-thinning”) action comes from the acetylation of platelets; the pain-killing mode from salicylate.)

    So, we see that there’s a huge point of similarity between aspirin and the willow bark extract that extended lifespan."

    I pay attention to every random story Tex tells, "mythic truth" or not, insane or not. If Tex said he slept on a bed of wood shavings and tree leaves because gorillas, I would give it a shot.

    Because most of the time, some major source eventually "discovers" stuff that he has been saying for the past 5 years and legitimizes it.

    Bottom Line: Aspirin + Vitamin K = good for you. Probably Google to find a proper amount of each. Make sure to stop eating garbage first, then worry about supplements.

    A useful tip that an old lady gave me a few years ago. She had terrible arthritis in her hands, she was unable to straighten her fingers and had plenty of pain. Her tip was not to sleep with your hands in a fist, but to consciously keep your fingers outstretched overnight. She reckoned that was what had caused the severity of her problem.

    It made sense to me, and is easy to do once you get into the habit.
    Literally an old wives tale, but I'm prone to think it will work.

    Interesting. Suggests arthritis is a side effect of chronic hypertension.

    Drop anything with soy in it. That means tofu. But it also means anything with "vegetable oil" (basically either soybean or canola), soy flour, or "textured vegetable protein" (in canned chilis, soups, and many frozen foods, anything cheap with meat in it)

    Soy will make you grow a vagina and kill your sex drive. Soy will give you man boobs. Soy will make you look like this man:

    [​IMG]

    Why is soy so shit for you?

    Basically, it's estrogen: the food.
    Also, most soy is GMO, which means it's soaked in RoundUp (glyphosate) and has all the toxic effects that come with that chemical. It's also cheap and used as an additive in just about everything.

    From Eating Soy and Testosterone: Can Regular Soy Consumption Really Cause Low T? | https://www.anabolicmen.com/soy-and-testosterone/ :

    "Answer: Soy contains these compounds called isoflavones (genistein, daidzein and glycitein) which act as phytoestrogens (plant estrogens) in the human body. They’re structurally similar to the principal female hormone, estrogen, and are believed to have similar effects in the body."

    "This study followed one 19 year old man who started consuming hefty amounts of soy in his diet. Suddenly the guy lost all interest to sex and suffered from erectile dysfunction. His blood DHEA, testosterone, and DHT levels also plummeted significantly. 1 year after stopping the soy consumption, his erectile health and hormonal profile was fully regained"

    Dangers of Soy for Men, Estrogen Up and Weight Loss Down - Health Level UP | http://healthlevelup.com/soy-milk-protein-estrogen-weight-loss/

    P.S. You may think you're free of estrogen creating soy shit because you're eating a can of chili. Look for "textured vegetable protein" on the back, added into the meat. It's basically soy flour.

    Intelligence community is adding hardware level backdoors to all new Intel chips being manufactured today. OS doesn't matter. AMD prolly gets the same treatment. Samsung apparently has a similar program.

    Can activate mic or webcam even when computer looks off or sleeping.

    That is good to know, I made the case to Tex that old software/computers are on the rise and these "cheap" chippy-china-PIES can fuck off. Guess the same now goes for muh next gaming rig for 3K.

    Thank god for SJW's making modern games so shitty you can't be bothered to even play them. Any new worthwhile release post Witcher 3 will be played @ an internetcafé, if at all.

    It's kind of sad that anyone who thinks there are two genders is going to have to act like a fucking Mafia Don to get by in the future. The guy that sent the FULLY AUTOMATIC ASSAULT GIF on Twitter was found through a burner phone because he used an iphone ID to pay for something.

    Burner phones charged with Amazon gift cards bought with cash in a different city, no post-2006 electronics, old 1990 Ford truck too old for Wifi. All to complain about towel-head rapists ruining your country on Twitter without the secret police arresting you for "illegal Far-Right opinions".

    Soft extermination is the worst.
