The same has been happening here in Australia since last Tuesday, at first our not so bright Minister for Social Services, etc, jumped up and claimed publicly that it was " Due to a hacking attack from an unknown source," only to shot down in flames, deservedly so, less than an hour later when informed that the Social Services Computer Systems had crashed from overloading.
Good News.

I've had digital thermometer on hand since my daughter went through Chemotherapy ( as the Oncologist said, " A necessity for the parent/carer to have), checked my temp yesterday 36.2 C one degree below the normal but mine has always been an average of a degree below that of most people for some reason. Plus being a nurse for so long I know the symptoms of Fever, etc. So people please take the time to get a thermometer and check you temp regularly.

Ah thank you for that, it IS most definitely a 'keeper' since my Cherokee Tribal name is " Grey Wolf from across Great Waters" given to me in 1998 by the people when my late daughter and I went to meet with our distant. long lost Cherokee relatives for the first time ever. My daughter, Lorrae, was given the name " Hair that shines like Sun" by the women because of her beautiful golden hair, though everyone did laugh when she told them that I had given her the nickname of Sasquatch (Bigfoot) because of the size of her feet.

Triphid comments on Mar 23, 2020:
Had message sent to my emails today telling me that a daily dose of 5 millilitres of Colloidal Silver and bathing in a solution of Epsom Salts and Bicarbonate of Soda twice EVERY day will prevent you from getting CoVid 19. What a complete load of Bullshit and bunkum, Colloidal Silver solution is extremely dangerous and cannot be expelled from your body, it just builds up and up eventually turn your skin an ashen blue-grey colour until it finally causes your Liver and Kidneys to fail completely. Epsom Salts if taken orally are a good emetic and can be a laxative, in a bath they can ease aching muscles but that is about all. Bicarbonate of Soda in hot water is great for removing corrosion on the battery poles in your car and used sparingly is a good teeth cleaning agent. But NONE of them is a recognised treatment for ANY medical condition such as viral infections, etc.

Triphid comments on Mar 22, 2020:
With the Australian Government literally 'busting its arse' to prop up the Business Sector ( mainly, imo, the BIG Businesses) and handing out relatively measly small extra payments to the average people, workers, unemployed, pensioners, etc, etc, I tend to think that the Big End of Town needs far less financial support from Governments than do the average peoples. The Big End of town have HUGE cash reserves to fall back on, so a short term loss of massive profits, bonuses to Executives, etc, is NOT going to do them any real harm at all, even IF the Shareholders do NOT get the dividends they expect also. Big Businesses NEED the little people to keep them running, the little people NEED to have money to buy essentials, etc, to help them survive through this pandemic, IF the little people don't make it through then the Big End of Town Businesses WILL collapse for lack of workers and little people purchasing the goods, etc, they sell to them to make their profits. After all it IS only logical that NO money in the pockets of the little people means NO purchasing of the Goods produced and sold by the Big End of Town Companies and Corporations does it not?

Triphid comments on Mar 21, 2020:
These dumbos stampeding to stock up on huge amounts of toilet paper are really NOT thinking very well, are they? For example, 1) where the hell are they going store away the huge stockpiles, 2) anytime you have a viral infection, other than in the digestive canal that is, you don't really feel much like eating, ergo you DO NOT need to shit as much as you normally would or do, but you will, IF you follow medical advice and drink more fluids, be peeing more, 3) far better to 'stock up' on things like Aspirin or Paracetamol that can help reduce the effects of both Fever and aches and pains resultant from the viral infection, and, last but by no means least, 4) they are just being selfish arse-holes thinking only of themselves because others, infected or not, are still going to need to shit, pee and wipe themselves, so how are they expected to keep themselves clean?

Of course the Governments everywhere will be looking to ' come to the rescue' with Aid packages to help the BIG END of town since that is where their main sources of power is derived from, we. the Plebs and Prols are expendables. But they don't realise that without the Plebs and Prols like us then their short term solutions for the Big End of town are little more than 'pissing in the wind.' After all, it IS we, the little common people, who truly keep the wheels of the countries turning, WE are the true back-bone of the country and the economy, not the Rich, the Wealthy and the Business Moguls, etc, a Tribe made up of Chiefs with no Indians is no tribe at all.

Anyone else find pantheism (sexed up atheism) interesting?
Triphid comments on Mar 21, 2020:
Is not Pantheism merely by definition replacing the single God Being with multiple God Beings, i.e. the Roman Pantheon, the Greek Pantheon, the Pantheons of ancient cultures or even the Pantheon of Hinduism? Did not Christianity, for one, strive from its very beginning to destroy and drive out Pantheism and the beliefs of there being a vast Pantheon of Divine, Supreme Beings? Ergo, Pantheism is not and cannot be "sexed up Atheism" since Atheism by its very definition is a DISBELIEF/Rejection of the notion/ideology that ANY and ALL Gods/Supreme Divine Entities have never existed.

Triphid comments on Mar 16, 2020:
As a person with multiple Ethnic backgrounds running through my blood-line and one with an insatiable appetite for knowledge and learning about ancient Cultures, etc, I have to mention that it may just be far more than mere coincidence that ancient Cultures from the Egyptians through to the Mesopotamians, Aztecs, Incas, Mayans, Nth. American Native Tribes and Australian Aboriginal Tribes ALL have Myths/Legends that their "Gods" ( for want of a much better terminology) ALL came down from the Stars and Skies. Even the Christian bible holds references to biblical figures being either meeting with 'Sky Beings' or having traveled up into the sky (Heavens) either with or to meet with these Sky Beings. Since thousands of miles and expanses of both land and oceans, let alone the difficulties in traversing such expanses, separated these cultures and communication between them was almost totally unheard of and logically impossible at the times in question, then can these myths/legends be merely discarded with a grain of salt, dismissed out of hand and regarded merely as being coincidental? And YES, the authors of the bible, Torah, Koran, etc, most certainly 'borrowed' myths and legends from other cultures in the same geographical region as themselves and then set about embellishing such myths, etc, to suit their own means and ends. A prime example, is the Hebrew ' one God' concept that ONLY arose AFTER the Amenhotep Iv/ Akhenaton - Armana 'experiment' in Egypt around 1,800 or so B.C.E., the Hebrews, so it seems, latched on to the idea and expanded on it since prior to that time they too worshipped a veritable PANTHEON of Deities, e.g. Baal, Ishtar, etc, etc. The Hindus alone have well 30,000 + Deities and almost ALL are equally claimed to "come from the skies." As one with what I like to think as a TRULY Open Mind, I see and think that there are no such things as coincidences.

As a wee follow up, the Evangeloon told me less than an hour ago, over the adjoining fence thankfully, that he went to the Emergency Department of the Hospital this morning and told them that thought he may " Morona Virus," and he wanted some medical advice on how he should look after himself. It seems that some Doctors do have a sense of humour, since the Doctor ran out of the room trying to stifle a sudden urge to laugh then came back in some time later and gave him a referral letter to take to the Psychiatrist on Duty at the Psychiatric Department. Our neighbourhood Evangeloon now has appointments with a the Psychiatrist booked for every second day for the next 3-4 weeks PLUS a medical prescription, what as a Nurse, I know to be nothing more than Placebos.

As a side comment/note, we just had the Annual St. Pat's Day Race Meeting last weekend, people usually come from almost all over the country to attend. I wonder how many came and brought the virus with them or how many actually had the common sense to stay away. Being that it IS an annual Catholic Fund-raising event I sincerely hope that it fell flat on its arse, which could be quite possible since the town and the road out to the race-track, etc, was extremely quiet instead of the usual St. Pat's Day hoo-ha, bedlam and racket that is par for the course any other year.

Oh dear, perhaps 'Big Sky Daddy' is dropping him a hint that he's been lax in his duty and NOT fleecing the Sheeple enough.....LOL.
I joined a Christian Chat Group just to see what was going on with them.
Triphid comments on Mar 15, 2020:
Those Xstian Chat Groups are truly something else are they not? I often find that when I get in amongst them it's a kind of reverse " Daniel in the Lions Den" Scenario in that I'm one lion among a crowd of 'Daniels" trying to decide which one to pounce on first....LOL.
Blind Faith In Religion Destroys Our Ability To Critically Think For Ourselves
Triphid comments on Mar 15, 2020:
As a Lecturer once stated, categorically, during my studies to gain my ThD. " The parameters of Faith are such; a) One must NEVER question, b) One must NEVER attempt to apply reasoning, etc, to ANY and ALL religious teachings, c) One MUST TRUST explicitly what you are told, no matter the interpretation, etc, d) the Laws of God and religion are paramount and beyond the Laws of Man, e) doubt/doubts are the open door/s by which the Devil enters and once in will never leave, f) One MUST submit oneself completely and without reservation to the beliefs of the religion and those teaching it, else God shall turn his back to you and yours unto a thousand Generations have passed. That is Faith, that IS what Faith demands and requires of you." And when I offered up my question referring to " Free Will being the gift of God to mankind" the response was as such. "Free Will as per God is the gift for a MAN to choose the woman he so desires so that HE may bring her and the children she bears him into the Light of God, that IS the only Free Will that God has gifted unto man and man alone for women were NEVER gifted with anything from God other than to be subservient, submissive and obedient to men, bring forth his children from her womb, tend to his every needs and any woman who fails to give her husband male children has both failed him and God alike." Needless to say that I totally disagreed completely with him and his interpretations 110% throughout my studies and still remain a 100% ardent Atheist.

IMHO, ANY Parent refusing to vaccinate a child WITHOUT a medically documented reason should be charged with Child Endangerment and or Child Abuse.

You know WHY they added the Ono onto her name of Yoko don't you? It's because every time she got up to sing, everyone yelled " Ono, stop her she can't sing, let alone even hold a tune." LOL

Such a GREAT show of Faith and Trust in their Omnipotent God when even " Il Papa" ( the Pope) starts hiding behind closed doors even before Italy is put into nation-wide lock-down over the Covid19 virus becomes a Pandemic claiming he ONLY has a head-cold. I lay even money bets that the Nuns and Altar Boys are rejoicing these days since they are finally getting a welcome break from the insatiable Catholic Priests at last.

Some advice for all those ladies suffering from the toilet paper shortage ATM.
Triphid comments on Mar 14, 2020:
My suggestion for the ladies running low on the Dunny paper would be the song " Shaking All Over," LOL.
I didn't believe it till I saw it this pm. People are hoarding toilet paper, napkins?
Triphid comments on Mar 14, 2020:
Since the " Run" on hoarding Dunny (Toilet) paper hit Aussie Supermarkets, one very brilliant Aussie Comedian recently came up with a quite excellent and very response to the Hoarders, " Don't be a Twit, Give someone else a chance to have a shit." Now most Supermarket chains in Australia have introduced restrictions on "Panic Buying" of non-perishables such as Dunny Paper, etc,? IF you are scared of running short of Dunny paper, then I suggest hoarding bibles, they are free, the paper is soft and gentle on those sensitive areas plus it gives you something amusing to read whilst you drop yet another "Trump" or 3 into the waste removal system.

Triphid comments on Mar 14, 2020:
Like it or not, churches/religions have held sway over humanity since time immemorial, their filthy claws extend into almost every part of life, politics and the media. They have huge coffers and legions of Lobbyists to push their inane rubbish onto the masses seemingly unrestricted and at will. Here in Australia we, very sadly, are now stuck with a Free to Air Television Channel dedicated solely to broadcasting the likes of Jimmy Swaggert, etc, 24/7 plus another F.TA. Channel that starts its daily broadcasts with Money Grubbing American Mega-Church programme, even our publicly owned Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the A.B.C., runs religious programmes every Sunday morning and repeats one in particular at least once per week. Social Media, so it seems in numerous cases, is fast becoming infected/infested with religious tendencies, Suckerbook, imho, is a PRIME example. We, the Heathen (LOL) element have been outnumbered and repressed for centuries, and often living in fear ( as so many still do to this very day), and it WILL remain that way UNTIL we stand together as one and demand in ONE unified voice that WE want equality and the FREEDOMS that the religiotards take for granted.

I was banned for a year from 'Suckerbook' on March, 28th 2018, received a message offering ' conditional parole' in December, 2018, on the 14th of this month it will be 2 years since I last 'graced' Suckerbook with my presence and over a year since I kindly ( ?) informed them where exactly and how deeply they could INSERT their beloved 'conditional parole' and their Suckerbook. Suckerbook is NOT the be all, end all of the Universe, my friend, steer clear of it, less hassles, better friends, conversations, etc, to be found and enjoyed on here, trust me.

There is a myth/legend among numerous Aboriginal Australian Tribes/Clans that when their ancestors first arrived here there were already other people living in Australia. Many are described as being, " Tall as a spear, with much hair on their bodies,straight, reddish/brown hair hanging down past their shoulders, large hands and feet, longish arms and legs," many tribes /clans still refer to them as either the Warriggani or the Dirrigerri people.

Back when I was in a band in the late 60's - early 70's we wrote and performed a song we called " 150 pounds of Dynamite with an 8 inch fuse," it took 3 concerts at the school for the teachers to actually work out what we were sing about....LOL.

Better dancer: Elvis or Jesus
Triphid comments on Dec 29, 2019:
I'd have to say neither since I've actually watched a Jesus lizard in action as it runs and dances its way across water with barely a ripple AND on its hind legs only. Plus since 'Jesus' has never been proven to actually existed then that alone rules him out and, in my opinion, Elvis was merely a 'manufactured' singer/star then, of course, the vote should go to the only REAL contender, the Lizard.
Hmmmmm.... Has anyone taken the Myers-Briggs personality test?
Triphid comments on Dec 29, 2019:
INTP was my result. But I take the whole thing with a grain of salt since we humans are apt to 'change tack' almost at the drop of a hat anyway. Though it might be tempting and fun to do it again and answer every question on a completely random basis just see the result. LOL, just tried the 'random' bit and ended up with a result that gave 3 separate types all at the same time.
Do people try to bring you down?
Triphid comments on Dec 29, 2019:
Oh there are plenty is this world, sadly, who do their utmost to try to bring people down. But if we were to have a rating scale for them it would be, in my opinion, a very close tie for First place between some Politicians and those ever so negative minded Catholics. There is a couple of catholics around here where I live that exuded negativity like a laborer exudes sweat on a hot day while digging holes. One very particular negative catholic springs readily to mind and she the kind that I avoid at all costs now by catching a much earlier bus just to avoid the time when she would sit and either talk endlessly about how absolutely terrible literally everything and everyone is or merely pick 'holes' in everyone on the bus at the time and do it out loudly so every body can hear her clearly. Your day can start out quite happy until she comes along and within minutes you are almost at the point that you are considering throwing yourself under the bus rather than getting into it.

I usually reply with the normal Aussie phrase, " I'm about the same as always but it's no use complaining because it does no good for anyone anyway."
