South Australia let in COVID from the ponzi states this week, but only to the fully vaccinated. Notice the big yellow bar on the right of the graph. Pass the popcorn!
As we all know, the vaccine isn’t very good at preventing infection. This paper says there is a reduction in the infection rate from 38% unwaxed to 25% if waxed. But of course if 25% is still a lot of infectiousness.
The Doherty report recommendations, which the governments and CHOs base their decisions on, used much older data from a paper in which the population hadn’t been fully waxed and it reckoned infectiousness was reduced from 10% to 5% by vaccination. If those levels had proved accurate Europe wouldn’t be enjoying its latest wave of the infection. By comparison, the measles vax gets the infection rate down from 52% to 3%.
Maybe you saw this:
Aussie dollar is down quite a bit, but still above $0.70 cents. I saw at my local 7-eleven that Fuel prices had gone up alot, presumably as a result. Makes me glad I drive a diesel vehicle.
VR is a good break from R
Some nice VR sites that should work in any headset (or google cardboard). Many work without VR too.

Youtube has a few cool 360 videos.
I discovered this week that many Australians do not know who Oliver Cromwell was. Time to educate yourselves. The beginning of democracy and the end of monarchy happened in England, not France or the USA. I’m not giving you a link because this guy is huge – find your own and start reading.
Pauline Hanson’s animated cartoons are more fun than anything I’ve seen on TV for ages. Maybe you can recommend me some better TV? Here’s episode 1. So far there are 5.
Raoul Pal had some neat things to say about Ethereum. Namely that its chart is the same as the bitcoin chart offset by about 4 years, lining them up based on adoption stats. Based on that he reckons a final blow off top could appear in March.
He had some other things to say too. This video is hugely long and some of it is a bit one sided, but still gives food for thought. The first comment on the youtube page links to different parts of the video. I can’t remember exactly where he said that about the Etherum – but it’s in there somewhere.
Enjoy your weekend!
