#6366: Well, that about wraps it up for cholesterol

I recall vividly that one of my dad's cardiologists said--in the context of him having something done for a blocked artery--that "cholesterol is just a number".

But "the science is settled!" Or, no, actually it's not settled, and we don't know what the fuck we're talking about, because maybe cholesterol has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with heart disease after all.

And statins are utterly pointless. I won't take them. The risky side effects are not worth it, to say nothing of the fact that I don't feel the need to pay for a drug which does absolutely nothing to decrease my chances of a heart attack.

Let me offer evidence to support my contention that just about everything we eat is a genetically modified organism.

Gene-splicing plants is just a faster way to give them desired traits.

Good! And that vote should--had better--take place regardless of whether or not Dr Ford testifies on Thursday. Assuming she even bothers to show up, which is in doubt.

The second accuser declines to testify under oath which tells me her story is 100% bullshit.

If you will not back up your accusation by testifying to it under oath, then you are nothing but a sleaze artist and deserve to be ignored by civilized people.

Yesterday I was sick as a dog.

Got up, had a warp core breach, then started getting ready, and felt really dizzy for a few seconds, but soldiered on. Got to work feeling pretty washed out, but bravely continued; but I finally gave up and asked to be excused. Got about two hours in before I realized I was too woozy to concentrate and had started making stupid mistakes.

Went home and slept it off. Got up around 7:30, but went back to bed around 9:30 and slept until the alarm went off today. Went to work. Boss remarked that I still looked a little wiped out, but I soldiered on and did my job all day.

Stinkinous gut.
