There are only two ways to deal with bothersome headaches:

1 - Cut your head off.

2 - Cut your body off.

Philly versus Cleveland

OMG ISTG - Why is everything about Cleveland these days?

http://www.infowars.com/cleveland-braces-for-possible-verdict-in-tamir-rice-case/

Cleveland Cavaliers, Labronze James(sp?), the crazy car massacre, etc. I looked back in my journal and actually the police mayhem seems to have started with PHILADELPHIA around 2010. But you don't hear too much from that city now. Then, back in - let's see - 1985 - (this is the anniversary) - there was the insane MOVE massacre, which should have been seen as a foreshadowing of today's police madness.. I was never in Philly at the time of either of these, and I knew of no police madness when I was there. But I did have a major sense of weirdness in the atmosphere and music. BTW - a lot of great music came out of Philly - soul, blue-eyed soul, be-bop, hip-hop. This is documented in last week's NPR "World Cafe". Some of my most beloved oldies are there. It really is a treasure trove of American music, and I recommend listening to all of it, damn you. I've been to Cleveland, and all I can say is that I hate everything and everyone in the vicinity of the bus terminal. I stopped over at a bar and a bunch of men came down on me for spurning this giant tranny for having man-hands.

HAMILTON, OH — "Following in the same patterns of viciousness and savagery that have persisted since the dawn of mankind, the 2.8-million-year-old cycle of human cruelty reportedly continued unabated Tuesday on the playground of Hamilton Elementary School...."

Malaise in the life...

I had some sort of apple/grape/sugar cider fermenting for a while, and drank much of it last night. I don't know why apple cider can be such a killer, but mine usually is. It made me mad mad I tell you. But, this time, I feel I restrained myself from retaliating against the down-belowers.

My apple cider usually has some unfermented sugar in it, which is very bad for my CFS/ dementia. But if I let it ferment for too long, it turns into acidic vinegar. It's mainly sugar that causes the problems for my health, not so much the alcohol. Not only do I have some kind of diabetes-like mitochondrial problem, the sugar also feeds toxic yeast and whatever else is dining on my soul. Then, my immune system overreacts to these, and the cytokines mess up my brain - along with the alcohol.

Alcohol intolerance is a regular symptom of CFS, but I drink it anyway, despite all the trouble it causes me. It's cheaper than a cruise to Jamaica. And, the next day, after whatever migraine, I usually look great for some reason, and feel very sexual.

(Well - one great thing about apple cider is that it contains malic acid, which is great for people w/ CFS. Wakes us up, unlike wine, which does the opposite. But wine has resveretrol, which is why I drink it. Resveretrol is not only a top-notch anti-oxidant, it has fungus-fighting abilities).

This morning, I woke up with one killer, bizarro hangover, along with the dementia, plus continuing drunkiness. Loss of balance. I had intended to do some cleaning, before the repair guy arrived around noon. But, I only managed a little.

He showed up and I was presentable. The problem was that the gaskets, (liner), on my fridge leaked, and did not close shut. So, he came to replace them. We talked, I helped. My dog was cool. The replacement took a lot of time, and my food wanted to grow hair.

He also worked on the hinges of the fridge doors, which meant the doors had to be removed. Well, when all the work was done, the doors still didn't close tight - and now they be leaking more air than before. We simply couldn't figure out what the problem was.

Now, I continue using a box of rocks to keep the bottom door closed. I'll probably need the fridge replaced, which is terrible, because this is an otherwise great fridge - big, too, for my daily nutritional needs and wonderment.

(Hey - while writing this, someone came in and logged me off. I checked my firewall and there were several intruders. This has been a never-ending battle for almost a decade. Now I have to spend a whole lot of time working on my firewall - as there was also trouble last night).

After about hour of "exertion", I became exhausted, and had to lie down. Then he left.

The folks downstairs were nervous that the repair guy would knock on their door, about the guy illegally staying there. But I am letting this go for today, and that never happened. In appreciation, the guy downstairs blasts their meagre stereo, and shouts angry rap for an hour, after the repair guy had gone.

Big woop. tee-doo

Plants can see, hear, smell, and respond to threats

(NaturalNews) Plants are able to tell different insect predators apart, both by sensing the different shapes of their jaws, and by "hearing" the different vibrations caused by their chewing, according to recent research by Heidi Appel of the University of Missouri.

This allows the plants to respond with defensive measures tailored to a specific attacker, Appel said.

Because plants are not able to flee from predators the way animals can, they have evolved a complex suite of defenses to deter herbivores and parasites. Many of these involve chemical defenses that are only activated when an attack occurs.

"[Plants] are way more clever than we give them credit for," Appel says.
