An A For Creative Writing

A father passing by his son’s bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an Envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to ‘Dad.’

With the worst premonition he opened the envelope with trembling hands and read the letter.

Dear Dad: It is with great regret and sorrow that I’m writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you.

I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice.

But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it’s not only the passion…Dad she’s pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy.

She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.

Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn’t really hurt anyone.

We’ll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy.

In the meantime we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Stacy can get better. She deserves it.

Don’t worry Dad. I’m 15 and I know how to take care of myself.

Someday I’m sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to know your grandchildren. Love, Your Son John

PS. Dad, none of the above is true. I’m over at Tommy’s house.

I Just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than a Report card that’s in my center desk drawer.

I love you. Call me when it’s safe to come home.

Pulmonary Abdominal Relationship

I knew there was a gut-brain link but had not heard of this before now.

From the book ‘Analogy of Chronic Hepatitis and Phthisis Pulmonalis’:

“I relate it merely to shew how dependent the pulmonary disorder was upon that of the abdominal viscera. In many similar cases which occurred subsequently, I directed my sole attention to the state of the bowels, and invariably found the pulmonary affection to subside in proportion as the digestive organs resumed their proper functions.”

Massive 2022 Worldwide Die-Off – All Cause Mortality Graph Spikes

All Cause Mortality Graph Spikes

(Tom: I am a big one for statistics, especially the ones harder to fudge, like all cause mortality. Since the vaccine was first mooted I have read  medical experts predicting a huge rise in post-jab deaths from non-Covid related causes due to the fact that the mRNA vaccine destroys the immune system which sets the body up to be killed any number of ways. And while almost every day we see anecdotal evidence of this – doctors and athletes dying in far greater numbers than before – individual instances like this are all too easily dismissed by the vaccine advocates and too few autopsies are done to refute their pooh poohing. On the other hand, all cause mortality is damning and incontrovertible evidence of harm.)

We are seeing some very concerning death trends ever since the vaccines rolled out in December 2020. This report will highlight some of the countries with the most major death spikes into 2022.

Pope instructs that all funds be moved to Vatican bank by September 30

Vatican Bank

(Tom: We could look back on this and laugh at how it was irrelevant in the overall scheme of things or we could look back on it and say, “Now THAT was a clue as to the timing of the Great Rest.” There are probably many of these incidents that you would have to be in the know to be able to correctly estimate their relative importance. Time will tell.)

Pope Francis has ordered that the Holy See and connected entities move all financial assets to the Institute for Works of Religion (IOR), commonly known as the Vatican bank.

The pope’s rescript, issued Aug. 23, clarifies the interpretation of a paragraph in the new constitution of the Roman Curia, Praedicate Evangelium, promulgated in March.

According to Francis’ rescript, financial and liquid assets held in banks other than the IOR must be moved to the Vatican bank within 30 days of Sept. 1, 2022.

The IOR, based in Vatican City State, has 110 employees and 14,519 clients. As of 2021, it looked after 5.2 billion euros ($5.6 billion) of client assets.

Icelandic Teens

In the mid-90s, Icelandic teenagers were among Europe’s biggest drinkers and smokers.
Today, Iceland tops the list of European countries where the lifestyles of teenagers (young people aged 13-19) are the healthiest!
How did this evolve?
Icelandic scientists have tried to discover the biochemical processes that cause addiction.
Harvey Milkman, an American professor of psychology, now a lecturer at the University of Reykjavik, concluded that the choice of alcohol or drug depends on how the human body is used to dealing with stress.
It turns out that there are many different substances that cause biochemical processes in the brain, which the body then becomes dependent on.
Scientists then looked for actions that stimulate the same processes in the brain.
According to Milkman :
“You may be addicted to tobacco, alcohol, Coca-Cola, energy drinks and certain foods…
We decided to offer teenagers something better.
We found that dancing, music, drawing or sports also triggered biochemical processes in the brain which made everything possible, but were also a harmless solution to stress, and that in terms of emotional effect nel, these actions should have the same effect on teenagers as stimulants, alcohol or tobacco.
Henceforth we offered them free masterclass programs in whatever sport or art they would like to study. Overtime, three times a week, has been specially funded by the state.
Each teen was required to participate in the program for three months… but in the end, a lot of them followed those programs for more than five years. “
To address teen nicotine and alcohol addiction problems, authorities also had to amend the law. Thus, Iceland banned advertising for cigarettes and alcoholic beverages and created special parent organizations that, in collaboration with the school, help students solve their psychological problems.
Thanks to this, Iceland, for the past 20 years, has managed to reduce the number of teenagers
who regularly drink 48% to 5%,
and those who smoke 23% to 3%.
Icelandic scientists suggest using similar methods in other countries.
The question is to know:
Who allows this to happen?
This will be a huge loss for multinationals. They have no interest in teens becoming self-aware and avoiding the path of addiction to alcohol, cigarettes and human stimulants until their death.
They want users.

Silverback Gorilla In Barren Enclosure

A new friend of mine posted: About 20 years ago, I went to the Cheyanne Mountain Zoo.

It was during the Christmas season when they still called it Christmas. It was about 8:00pm. I was the only person in the Gorilla enclosure. There was this beautiful Male Silverback western lowland gorilla who probably weighed well over 400 lbs.
He was indoors, behind a glass wall, the glass seemed about six inches thick. We both put our faces up to the glass and gazed into each others eyes for a long time. His sorrowful eyes told me that he was a prisoner. I couldn’t reach him, I couldn’t communicate with him, I couldn’t do much to comfort him and I couldn’t save him.

Now, there are lots of people in my world that bring back that exact feeling.
