    1. I came across a similar story just a few months ago. It is really strange that for absolute not reason at all death rates are up. Uber’s mom told me that this is likely just some kind of seasonal variance, and that all this talk about a 0.00000001% chance of this being just randomness is just nonsense anyway. Besides, the vaxx is safe and effective, so we already know that this experimental gene therapy cannot have anything to do with it.

  1. ” Besides, the vaxx is safe and effective, so we already know that this experimental gene therapy cannot have anything to do with it.”

    How much do you think is the vaccination and how much is because of delayed treatment for things like cancer? Also, how much is suicide because people couldn’t handle the lockdowns so they made it look like an accident?

    1. Suicide would be easier to untangle, since the cause of death is pretty obvious most of the time.

      I have been thinking about the delayed treatment thing, as far as I can tell people affected by these will see their lifespans shortened and their quality of life worsened, to a certain extent, but they usually don´t kill you on short notice.
      The undetected /late detected chronic conditions like cancer are progressive over time, and as such they will take an increasing toll that will become apparent over the coming years.

      What you should be paying attention to is a sharp spike in sudden deaths of otherwise relatively healthy people, in age brackets that are not usually affected by chronic conditions (think working age cohorts). Which is what seems to be happening from 2021 onwards.

      Also notice there is a significant increase in deaths outside the hospital, ie people who died at home or at the workplace, who never even made it to the hospital in the first place. Those are not chronic conditions causing that.

    2. To add to Yarara’s comment, we now have cases of people getting strokes and dying, as if God just strikes them down. Kids as young as three or four get strokes and die, as a consequence of the vaxx. The UK’s NHS has even been running a psy-ops campaign, telling the public that little kids can have strokes, too. It is complete madness.

    3. There is evidence that the vaxx promotes cancer growth, so you cannot even properly separate this issue. Suicide numbers are recorded differently, so it would be easy to subtract them. I am not sure that there are many people who make suicide look like an accident. Also, I hope that doctors properly establish the cause of death, unlike the news media who prefer to selectively manipulate their reporting. It used to be the case that suicides were reported as “unexpected deaths”. I even know of a case in a small town, due to personal contacts, where a fairly young guy “was found dead in the bathroom”, with the alleged cause of death being “respiratory problems”. The family was not particularly forthcoming, but I am almost completely certain this was a suicide.

    4. Fuck is like that vax is the most dangerous substance in the fucking world , sterilization , cancer , ramdom strokes , that shit is the real deal . Im almost disapointed i only got some pain in my arm after taking it , maybe there is two vacines a good one that only gives you minor side efects and the bad one which is the most lethal shit since antrax , 95% get the good one and 5 % get the bad one , i know peoples bodies react diferently , but there is a limit to that if you inject lethal poison to somene that person is gonna die not mather what.

    5. There is also this strange statistical anomaly that the most dangerous batches ended up in heavily Republican areas. I am sure that Uber’s mom has a good explanation why this is just randomness, like everything else, and that, if anything, we can only blame our elites for their incompetence. You see, they are just fumbling. They are not evil. If they were, our fact-checkers would have confirmed this by now.

  2. There is a non-zero probability that Berserk creator Kentario Miura died of the vaxx. This was the end of this manga, or so it seemed. Recently, it has been continued by his old studio, supervised by a mangaka and friend of Miura who is allegedly familiar with the entire story of the manga. A cynical take is that this is just an attempt to squeeze more shekels out of the die-hard Berserk fanbase. Yet, this may very well be a win-win, i.e. the studio gets to make more money and fans get more stories with guts.

    One immediate difference is that under the new leadership, the output frequency is higher. Seeing that Berserk used to go on long hiatuses, and Miura justified this with his perfectionism, I am inclined to say that the new management not necessarily wants to rush out new Berserk chapters. My view is that Miura had ventured deep into the realm of diminishing returns. Thus, I am cautiously optimistic.

  3. No-Vaxx Djoković is again champion of Wimbledon, while good goy Nadal had to retire after quarterfinals. Further illustrating the travesty of not letting him compete in the “British Penal Colony” Open, and probably the upcoming US Open as well (hopefully there will be some popular support to allow him in, but I’m not optimistic).

    1. Yup, isn’t it awesome! Joyful congratulations to Nova!
      Apart from Nikola Tesla he’s probably the most famous Serb of all times…

  4. “The family was not particularly forthcoming, but I am almost completely certain this was a suicide.”

    Aaron, to expand on this, it has often ben said that the rate of male suicide is much higher than we know because many guys will make it look like an accident. In other words, a guy wrecks his car and everyone thinks he was drunk but he wanted to die. Or a guy has a fall at his workplace and everyone think he slipped but he wanted to die. So generally, it is easier to track female suicide because someone who overdoses on sleeping pills might set off red flags for suicide. Evan guns many people will think it was a hunting accident. So that’s why I was trying to clarify that some things might be an increase in suicide even though they are not as obvious as someone hanging from a chandelier with a note in their pocket.

    1. @P Ray, this makes a lot of sense. I agree with your statement. Also, men are generally a lot more competent at killing themselves than women are. This is often phrased as women only “crying for help”. Related is that men are more straightforward, and they assess situations realistically. If they decide that they have seen enough of this gay planet, they just off themselves. Women, on the other hand, keep going with a steady supply of anti-depressants, cheap red wine, and the delusional hope that Mr Right will come into her life any day now.

    2. Yeah this is like the recent suicide of a former coworker of mine that I shared here. There are some people that still can’t figure out what happened. Including his girlfriend. At least thats what she wants to believe and others to believe. He threw himself in front of a big rig. That’s what happened.

    3. I never told you guys that some say he totaled his car right before it happened. That might have been the first attempt.

      But people can’t put 2 and 2 together. They say no, no, no he was in a relationship, he got into the air force and was moving to Texas with her, he had the world ahead of him etc. He saw her that very night, and she DGAF when I talked to her about it.

    And also, Aaron, I was going to address Yada but I’ll address your comment specifically. Since these numbers were gathered from insurance policies wouldn’t these men have even more motivation to make it look accidental as my understanding is insurance won’t pay out in the case of suicide?

    It seems to be a daily occurrence that there is some minor celebrity or some minor VIP person (e.g. a C-list actor, a comedian, a tech founder, etc) has mysteriously died.

    Seems like mainstream media is normalizing these deaths of people (usually under 45 years of age) and getting us immune to these mysterious suddent, unexplainable deaths.

    Wonder if anyone is keeping track of all these mysterious deaths.

    1. They are not only dying, they are cancelling concerts and events for medical reasons (or undisclosed reasons).

      Internet activists are keeping tabs on some of these. Check out the substack of Steve Kirsch

    1. Is there a breakdown in causes of death anywhere? I see “erratic behavior” mentioned, which could be a sign that the driver was having a heart attack, seizure or stroke, all of which have been credibly linked to the mrna shots.

      Steve Kirsch recently reported on a large increase (40% i think) of deaths by drowning on US beaches, where swimmers hearts may be failing while they are in the water.

      Tbh, it was the first thing I thought a few weeks ago, when that olympic swimmer passed out and almost drowned in full view of a world audience.

    2. @P Ray
      I have only a hunch bit it seems that the vaxx may be to blame here. My impression is that there are vaxx-induced labor shortages all over the Western world, which are likewise not properly communicated to the public. In my immediate environment, the vaxxed have been calling in sick quite frequently because their mystery juice does not protect them from Covid. I know of increased train delays, or at least the perception of it, and there are rather serious issues related to staffing airports, too. Modern organizations, apart from government institutions, are quite tightly run, so losing an extra 10 to 15% of your workforce can cause serious problems.

    3. @Aaron
      I have noticed the same at my job. Combined with a significant drop in the quality of new hires. Anywhere you go you can see it. Once well respected establishments are now filled with garbage employees.

  7. I think I’ve finally reached the maturity to realize that getting laid isn’t the same as partying/dancing/drinking the night away. When a woman is down, it’s nice to have dumped my load before the clock hits midnight rather than put up with the downward spiral most guys go through to get laid. Even a nightlife promoter told me it’s best to get the number and get her to meet one on one, since very few of the guys spending hours buying drinks and entertaining a woman and possibly her friends as well gets lucky that night. My own personal experience corroborates that, too.

    Speaking of health, I have a question for you, Aaron. I am trying to reduce and possibly eliminate my alcohol consumption due to recent health issues I’ve been having.

    Since you have mentioned in your books that you do not drink, yet go out to clubs, what do you typically have in your hand to at least look like you’re not out of place there?

    1. @Small Wonder
      You do not need to hold anything in your hands. If this makes you very uncomfortable and you want to avoid consuming alcohol, you can of course buy a non-alcoholic drink.

    2. Interesting. Never thought of that. Now that reflect on it, I actually do better on dance floors and that’s when holding drinks in your hands ruins the experience.

      Was just curious what you typically have when you do order from the bar, in case you want to divulge.

  8. Aaron, have you seen the movie Raging Bull with Robert De Niro? Might be the best damn film I’ve ever seen. The best part is I don’t even know why. It is captivating. It’s engaging. It draws you in:

    1. I watched this movie probably 15 years ago. It is really excellent, one of Scorsese’s best. I like Taxi Driver better, due to Travis Bickle’s go-getting attitude.

    2. Yeah, Taxi Drivers a good one. Inspired a lot of other movies as well. A lot of people don’t realize that America started to break down in the 1970s. Scorsese was ahead of the game. Best director ever.

    3. Scorsese is the only director I know of who can make a true story come to life on screen. His movies are actually pretty accurate. Other movies based on true stories are very far from accurate.
