Crazy Woman Spiral


A phenomenon that I have noticed from time to time is, for the lack of a better term, the crazy woman spiral.  It is rather sad to watch, and is seemingly preventable.  Something in a woman’s life goes bad, she is distraught.  She clutches the boyfriend/husband/friends closer, often in clingy/awkward ways.  They are surprised/confused and draw back, hoping that she will get over it.  This just makes her more distraught, so she doubles down on the behavior that was driving other people away.  And on it goes.   It usually does not end well.  Very often there is projection happening, where she is accusing the others of what she herself is doing.  It is odd how so very often this happens; there has got to be something going on inside that makes this happen.

Young men; watch for signs of this.  There is the test of time.  Usually such a woman can’t keep it from happening over an extended period of time.

As for why it happens to women, perhaps it is because they are more dependent by nature than men.  Anything that threatens their security can raise the anxiety level fast.

Probably there is no cure other than not allowing girls to enter adulthood with this manner of operating in their repertoire.

    We’ve been watching the series Homeland and are about up to 2016 now…the year Hillary was supposed to win. They have a female “president elect” who wants to get our soldiers out of the middle east and the CIA has a surreptitious plan to undermine her presidency. It’s spooky. The only thing missing is Russia.
    They haven’t asserted she is a Russian shill (yet).
    And their politics are 180 out (obviously the president is a liberal here, the CIA conservatives).

    Mike is reading about a combat veteran (double amputee) who ran 31 marathons in 31 days.

    Amazing how different people are.

    I’m reminded of a double amputee diabetic “frequent flier” at the hospital in New Mexico I used to work at. She was only in her 30s, and extremely obese.
    The amputations were a result of her own terrible life choices and she was an absolute bitch, as though everyone else was responsible for her problems.

    Guy Mike flew with the other day (interesting guy, he was an F4 pilot) said his daughter was trying to lift an over 600 pound patient a few months back and hurt her back. She needs back surgery now. She was working at a hospital in New Mexico of course. Sounds like things haven’t gotten any better. Wonder what happened to the personal cranes? Must been in use, or broke down or something.

    If you thought life couldn’t possibly get more difficult for Joe Biden, after he had to settle for a horrific fourth place in Iowa, I’ve got quite a surprise for you: yes it could. And the former vice president has no one to blame but himself.

    Just watch this video of Biden talking to a voter in New Hampshire who asks him why they should trust he can turn his campaign around. Well, Biden asks the lady who dared asked him this “good question” (his words), “have you ever been to a caucus?” When she answers in the affirmative, he lashes out at her.

    “No, you haven’t,” Biden responds. You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier.” In case those present thought he was kidding, he made sure to explain that he was just “being honest.”

    Now, more than ever, the Dems need Biden to be their nominee.

    Just to add, about the combat veteran…one of his motivations (aside from having a mission, which was an element he missed post-service) was to show a different side from the media portrayal of things. Media likes to portray our veterans as either victims or mentally ill with PTSD. Statistics are actually combat veterans have something like 7 percent PTSD rates, as compared to non-combatant veterans with 24 percent PTSD rates. Mike took a trip to Offutt airforce base a while back and they had some of the highest “PTSD rates” and it wasn’t even a deploying base.

  20. Explain nursing vs. medicine to him. He appears to have conflated the two. I don’t think nurse anesthetist is a bad job if you’re into it and don’t want to go to med school. But, you pretty much have to have a master’s/doctorate to make nursing not suck completely. Wound nurse is interesting work, but tough for men to break into at a lot of hospitals. Maybe not in the military though…

    I recommend that you copy this post and paste it to a text file – to have something to refer back to if the virus mutates enough to change this sequence. But, for now, this is what is currently going on right now.

    Quick summary:

    There are now seven or eight articles in the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association similar to the one I linked to a thread or so back. They all provide evidence that is supporting the following logic:

    https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2001191

    Note from this article that they sequenced the virus taken from nose samples and throat samples of Patient 1. Those two sequences matched each other identically, and matched the sequence that the Chinese created except for a small difference noted in the article. The fact that viruses mutate is an adequate explanation for this. The U.S. has sequenced the virus. We would know if it has been turned into a bioweapon.

    When people who have the flu die, what killed them?
    When people who have the Wuhan Cornavirus (WuFlu) die, what killed them?

    The answer to both questions is “organ failure”.

    What causes organ failure in both the flu and WuFlu?

    Low blood oxygen. Hypoxia (see Wikipedia).

    What causes hypoxia, low blood oxygen?

    Pneumonia (see Wikipedia). It interferes with the carbon dioxide / oxygen exchange in the lungs. Pneumonia is the trigger for death in both the flu and WuFlu, because it reduces the oxygen in the blood – which causes organ failure, which leads to death.

    What can keep folks who have either the flu or the WuFlu from dying from organ failure?

    Antibiotics or anti-virals – to get rid of the pneumonia so that the lungs can function normally again. But – that getting rid of the pneumonia takes several days. Organs will fail due to low blood oxygen before the lungs heal. Therefore, we also need:

    Oxygen, so that hypoxia (low blood oxygen) doesn’t occur. It is the hypoxia that causes organ failure. It is the organ failure that causes death. Note that medical folks are finding some with the flu who are old and already have an organ or organs that are in the process of failing. Some of these folks have died in spite of getting the proper medicine and oxygen. This is a normal occurance for the flu. Seems logical that it would be a normal occurance for the WuFlu when it progresses to pneumonia.

    The cause of death is the same in both the flu and WuFlu (organ failure). So how are these two diseases different?

    WuFlu is extremely contagious. At least in China, it seems to have spread very rapidly and extensively – much more so than the regular flu. Therefore, a very large number of people have suddenly needed antibiotics, antivirals, and oxygen.

    What happens when the need for antibiotics, antivirals, and oxygen outstrips the supply of antibiotics, antivirals, and oxygen?

    Pneumonia progresses, blood oxygen drops, organ failure occurs, and death. That progression is the same in both the flu and WuFlu. The only difference between the two (in terms of leading to death) is that WuFlu is much more infectious than the regular flu, and so many more folks have come to need medicine that is not available. Needed medicine not available leads to death by organ failure.

    How do you determine that someone has the WuFlu?

    By testing them.

    What happens when you run out of tests when there are still tens of thousand of people to be tested?

    You can’t test any more people to see if they are suffering from WuFlu.

    So what do you tell the world that they died from?

    Well, organ failure due to hypoxia due to pneumonia would be a truthful response. Or, you could say that they didn’t die. How will the outside world know any different? The point is, a government cannot report deaths from WuFlu if they have no more tests to determine that it is WuFlu. But, regardless of regular flu or WuFlu, they are dead, and they are dead from pneumonia leading to low blood oxygen leading to organ failure in both instances. So – they died from pneumonia – is a correct answer. Saying they died because the WuFlu has spread so fast that we have no more antibiotics or antivirals or oxygen or tests for WuFlu is probably not an answer you will ever hear – although that also seems to be the truth.

    In the face of a very contagious illness where you have run out of the medicines necessary to prevent death from that illness (antibiotics, antivirals, oxygen), what else can you do but put the infected folks into death camps and wait for them to recover on their own, or die? This is not being facitious. This is being realistic. This is the way the world always operated when antibiotics, antivirals, and oxygen had not yet been invented. During contagions, you must create an air gap to stop the spread. It’s not pretty, but it is necessary. It is how those who want to survive have always done it before the advent of modern medicine.

    All of that is the logic of what is happening in China, and wherever else the WuFlu has spread. At some point it may mutate into something different. But, for now, that is what has been going on. You will likely see few if any deaths in those countries outside China, since the caseload is not high and they will have sufficient antibiotics or antivirals and oxygen to keep the patients organ’s from failing due to hypoxia (low blood oxygen). For patients whose organs are already in some sort of failure, the outcomes will likely be different.

    “Nomi, a young drifter, arrives in Las Vegas to become a dancer and soon sets about clawing and pushing her way to become the top of the Vegas showgirls. Also, boobies.”

    Elizabeth Berkley was only only 3 years removed from the Saved By The Bell kid’s TV series and had done a Saved By The Bell TV movie in 1994.

    One reason for the high pneumonia and death rates in China may be over crowding, winter temperatures (which seem to have something to do with most flu outbreaks), and decades of air pollution. My most optimistic guess suggests that this thing is very contagious but is exacerbated by particularly Chinese conditions. With luck warmer weather will allow health officials all over the world to prepare for it’s winter 2020 return, possibly with some mutations.

    business is always something useful. if you become an engineer, you need to understand business. if you become a doc, you need to understand business to manage your practice. etc.

    so go for an Associate’s degree in business. it’s just two years. it gets the basics out of the way. the business classes give you useful life skills/info. and you have a ‘degree’ to put on job apps.

    sure, it’s just high school extended, but two years is a tangible amt of time for a young kid. it gives them something to do that produces something valuable and useful, something that can be used as a foundation for further education, if desired, and something financially feasible.

    some more thoughts on getting an Associate’s Degree in Business right out of high school:

    – it gives the young adult a goal – a tangible, realistic, goal. one they can reach even if they don’t like it goal.
    – again, basic business classes are useful in every area of life – basic accounting, finance, marketing, etc.
    – it gives the kid something to say when people ask that inevitable question, “What are you going to do with your life NOW?!” there are those who always know what they wanted to do, but for the rest of us, who haven’t got a clue at 17 and 18, even 19, it gives a kid a good, solid reply.
    – if they are used to going full-steam-ahead, they can finish it early. a year and a half (or whatever it turns out to be) is much more tangible at that age than even 3 years for a bachelor’s when they don’t even know what kind of bachelor’s they’d want to get.
    – it gives them time to observe the adult world from a place of safety, a place that’s grounded, where the ‘advice’ they hear is not from a bunch of crazy kids who are wasting time still acting like middle school kids.
    – it gives them some idea of choices and consequences wrt higher education, jobs, etc, as they experience it themselves …
    – and as they watch their peers make choices. two years in, and they can look back at their graduating class and see some results of choices made right after high school … cause/effect … which will (should) cause them to ponder what intentional choices they want to make in their own lives.
    – with housing prices rising, it also gives the assumed reason for still living at home without having to come up with an excuse as to why you’re still living with mommy and daddy, if this is an issue, which saves a ton of money.
    – it gives them something they can always put on their resume and job applications. they completed another level of education and have a certificate to prove it. it’s a tangible, usable accomplishment.

    our dentist told me once she started with getting her associate’s degree … then dental hygienist … then bachelors … then dentist. we don’t have to *know* everything when we’re young, and we don’t have to have it all mapped out. but it’s good if what we are doing counts for something tangible and gives us a sense of accomplishment.

    – – –

    one of my greatest accomplishments, as a mother, imo, is giving my daughters a safe place to live and call home – a place they aren’t begging to leave for the wrong reasons. i could not wait to leave my parents home, to get somewhere safe, to hopefully go somewhere where i was wanted as i wasn’t wanted at home – they couldn’t wait to get rid of me and told me so. my Beloved Niece moved out right after she graduated from high school and wasn’t welcome back. she ended up living with us for a summer when things got complicated b/c she didn’t have a ‘home’ to go back to. that’s tragic, imo. also, i think daughters should live at home a long time or until they get married – it’s safe and protected.

    And at the same time if you don’t then rather than anyone admitting that the “you can be anything you want to be” narrative might not actually be totally true, they just blame you for being a one off.

    Lindin explained her rationale. She implied that anyone who defends the innocent is only doing so to “derail” the conversation about the rape culture in which sexual assault is permitted to occur as frequently as she believes it does

    Britain, regardless, should consider itself lucky. EU leaders are planning worse to come for the remaining EU-27 member countries. Faced with a choice either to head off future “exits” by scaling back aggrandizement or “full speed ahead,” Brussels opts to pour on the coal.

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—“No! Stop him! The capitalist is getting away!” shouted Bernie Sanders during Rambo: First Blood Part II when the titular character fled his Soviet captors. While an ’80s-themed movie night seemed like a fun idea, it had turned awkward after the invitation of presidential candidate Sanders, who started cheering on the villains in all the movies.

    Coincidentally I watched Rambo First Blood II last night for the first time. Bloody hell, the chick who declared that she wanted to go to the US with Rambo got deaded within 2 minutes of declaring her desire. Worse than the pilot Deadmeat in the Top Gun parody.

    I really like the first film, still haven’t seen the rest (other than II, last night)

    The police—AGAIN—stood down to allow the anarcho-terrorists to assault their targets unimpeded.

    Brown’s first-person video shows him walking through the crowd and getting mobbed by the militants while police stand nearby on bicycles. The mob proceeded to harass and assault Brown, kicking him, poking him with umbrellas, and dousing him in the face with bear spray.

  65. Its looking like there might be a need for another BEF to land on the continent, this time with Brussels as it’s destination if “trade negotiations” don’t go well.

    Maine’s “1st non-binary” candidate for Senate, Bre Kidman, who says her pronouns are “they, them,” is giving away “guillo-tees” to promote her campaign to replace Republican Sen. Susan Collins. The t-shirts have a graphic of a guillotine on them. Known for their love of political violence, Democratic socialists like Kidman (and all the Bernie bros ever caught on camera) enjoy violent imagery and fantasizing about killing the rest of us or putting us in camps

    No, not business. At the associate level, get skills like AutoCAD or soldering & oscilloscope. Those are enough by themselves to get a job that’s a cut above restocking at Walmart.

    [T]he feeling that the Labour Party was no longer for [former Labour voters] went beyond Brexit and the Corbyn leadership. While it had once been true that “they knew us, because they were part of us,” Labour today seemed to be mostly for students, the unemployed, and middle-class radicals. It seemed not to understand ordinary working people, to disdain what they considered mainstream views and to disapprove of success. The “pie in the sky” manifesto of 2019 completed the picture of a party that had separated itself from the reality of their lives.

    As far as many of these former supporters were concerned, then, the Labour Party they rejected could not be trusted with the public finances, looked down on people who disagreed with it, was too left-wing, failed to understand or even listen to the people it was supposed to represent, was incompetent, appallingly divided, had no coherent priorities, did not understand aspiration or where prosperity comes from, disapproved of their values and treated them like fools.

Company truck, they cover the cost of his uniform, provide a company truck, gas etc which has to be worth another 5-10k a year, all based on some two year degree in industrial electrical something another and not being a pussy regarding heights.

    That’s 110k in Rural North Carolina dollars, living in a small town where 240k gets you 2 acres on a large pond, and a 2200 square foot home

    years ago i watched a sit-com scene where the grandparents and parents were listening to the teenage kid read their (boring) paper about an event in history when the grandparents said, “Honey, we were there! We can tell you what it was really like.” and they went on to tell their first-hand experience.

    being that Oldest is going to school online, most of it is writing, and i edit all her papers. she’s dyslexic and misses silly things that i catch. (she then has a computer program read it back to her, a double-check. i love that about her! one recent paper she decided to change after the computer read it back to her … “I sounded like a bitch, so I changed it!” it was a stupid assignment, and her attitude towards its stupidity came thru 😉 )

    anyway, she was writing about the end of the cold war wrt something in her finance class. her Dad had an mba in finance, so i remember a lot of those events clearly, and now I was the one saying, “I remember that! I can tell you first hand what it was like to live at that time.”

    those are always good and fun discussions b/c i get to recall good memories of their Dad to share with our daughters … always good for them to have more good memories to add to that pile.

    Titania McGrath and the Politics of Wokeness: An Interview with Andrew Doyle

    Yes, that’s the theme of Tom Holland’s last book, Dominion. Holland makes that point that in the absence of Christianity, there’s something instinctive about finding these belief systems. And it does have the same hallmarks: it has the aspect of original sin, the Augustinian concept of original sin which now comes in through whiteness, or being heterosexual—having these immutable characteristics that make you a sinner.

    We’re kind of hoping to keep him a little closer (he’ll be a couple of hours away).
    We actually did try to take Ton’s advice and recommended a trade school nearby, but he wants to go to this one. Might have something to do with our crappy internet.
