That bad cosmic joke II / Follow-up: Various

with one comment

As follow-ups to that ongoing cosmic joke:

  1. The construction works have so far continued at full force, including massive noise from what appears to be drilling into the walls, up to Friday. Saturday was limited to a few hours and much less noisy, but not noise free—some works were apparently still in progress.

    Further problems in the week or weeks to follow are only to be expected at this juncture.

  2. Health-wise, I seem to be bouncing back again, after the setback of the prior text. However, my cough is back and seems to be less responsive to e.g. cough drops than in the past.
  3. A very interesting article points to the possibility that my situation is part of a larger problem of “worst cold ever”, lasting for weeks or months, hitting many whose immune systems have become out-of-date due to the various COVID countermeasures. (To which might be added risks, unmentioned in the article, like lockdowns leading to a sun deficit, in turn leading to a vitamin D deficit.)

    This is further proof that it is the countermeasures that pose the true problem—not COVID. (Well, countermeasures and anti-intellectual, anti-science, pro-censorship, whatnot attitudes, which replace the scientific debate that should take place with a mere “Fake news! Fake news!”.)

    And, yes, I would by far consider this the worst cold (or cold-like disease) that I have ever had. I have been worse off during peaks a handful of times in the past, but I have never been troubled for so long in the past—and the number of sick-days, had I not been self-employed, might rival my career total.
