Been around awhile on Answers as mostly a Answerer. went away for awhile trying to get my avatar on.
We were on a boat and it was supposed to be an easy hike so I had just bare feet in boat shoes and swim shorts. It's real primeval forest over broken rugged terrain going cross country through tall sharp grass (well over knee high) something 'attached' itself to my leg. It hurt like hell worse than any bee sting and then it stayed there. As big as a Bumble bee, but not any form of bee, about 1 inch long solid black no markings, a hard shell like a beetle. I smacked at it to knock it off (not crush it to deepen stingers). It would not let go 'it dug in'. Burning pain from my heel to knee I finally knocked it off and it 'opened' wings! And flew hopped a staggered course back into the tall grass.
What was it? I was in pain and numbness for rest of hike (3 hours).
1 month later the mark from it is still on my leg.2 AnswersFirst Aid3 weeks ago

Was he evil. Was he against BLM...Why was he killed and by whom?

His birth date of 1942 means he'll govern as President age 79-83...that's the oldest President ever. He's already clearly suffering old age senility and Alzheimer's.
Even if he was a 'good guy' he's not and cannot be now (we all must die) so his unknown vice president will rule when he drops dead of old age Jan 2022?5 AnswersPolitics1 month ago
As US a journalist 8-16-20 if you said 'anything' critical about BLM...would you be fired, censored, murdered?
If so, are you scared?....and how does this affect biased reporting on your part?2 AnswersMedia & Journalism1 month ago
I mean psychology tells us we often think in...words/symbols....So, if you control what words and symbols people are allowed aren't you really controlling their thoughts...ala...'group think, correct thinking, political correctness'? Isn't all this in the dystopian novel '1984'?

The 'raping of Hong Kong' is a youtube video, you can watch it now, but I can't do links, just put the phrase in Google.
Why you?....because it's your former colony. You do have the 1997 Agreement....one nation, two systems....This is set till go to 2040 where Hong Kong continues as a wholly owned vassal state of communist China but with autonomy and a measure of freedom....
But now since March 2020 the communist Chinese have taken away 'all' freedom in Hong Kong, humiliate and torture the population. And you guys in the UK sit idle....Your nation signed the guarantee for the people of Hong Kong....watch the video if you dare.

It happened 24 hours ago, yesterday Friday 26th June. I'm on the US side of the Atlantic so it's not really my local problem...but where is the news?
What happened? This is year 2020 the 21st century we should have news instantly.
Who killed who? The dead guy stabber...what is his name? Are there 3 dead (including the attacker) or no dead at al?. How many wounded are in hospital, what is their condition, why aren't they interviewed?
It was 1st described as a terror attack, but now not?
Why is this 'blanket of secrecy and news 'suppression'?
For Answers that say 24 hours for police to 1st notify next of kin etc. That's b.s. isn't it? Is it not really this long info delay being done to give authorities the time to concoct and make up a false narrative to their own benefit?

What happened to the 'freedom of the press' and the 'peoples right to know'?
Item... today's (6-26-20) Glasgow Scotland stabbing spree. It happened around noon British time, some 4 1/2 hours ago.
Excited Scottish police themselves reported 'multiple fatalities', multiple wounded, the attacker shot dead by responding police. They described it as a....terror attack....presumably of Muslim origin.
Then....the news line went dead...neither the Telegraph, the Express, Guardian has any more news on it. It's like a blanket descended. The press muzzling itself?3 AnswersMedia & Journalism3 months ago
In New York state which includes most of NYC we have 32,000 dead in 3 months (mid March-Mid June) and 400,000+ cases. But after the Hell of April and May we now have only 500 new cases/day and are in control and stable.
So, why can't we stop the Texans and Florida people from entering NY state, because in Texas and Florida they now have 5000/6000 case/day, and these infected ******* are going to move north and infect us all over again!!! More lock downs more deaths all because of them?
Is the Governor of NY state legally wrong when he says he'll deploy the NY National Guard and State police to keep the infected out of now stable NY state?
Our state militia belongs to the people and the Governor of the state and not usually to the President of the United States correct?6 AnswersLaw & Ethics3 months ago
I mean not counting the 14 day incubation period, so from when you get symptoms and are confirmed.
At that point you have 14 days to go very sick, true? Then after that as you get better you have another 14 days isolation, true?
So, that's 28 days bedroom confined sick or recovering, and that's if you don't get blood clots or respiratory failure (in which case a 7 day hospital stay and 7 day recovery from that must be added at least making 42 days out of your life total). Is my understanding accurate?7 AnswersRespiratory Diseases3 months ago
Love him or hate him he's still human and was down a good 1 month+ and 5 days intensive care (that they tell us, so lets say 10 days really). He's been out of hospital for about 1 month?
At his age (56) you just don't bounce right back from such a nearly life ending illness do you?
Shouldn't he be convalescing till about Sept. 1 by which time his full strength and wits return?6 AnswersCurrent Events3 months ago
From 'worldometers' today.... 308,000 cases....43,300 dead.....that's 14% mortality. The WHO world average is 6% and the US is running at about 5.8% dead. So, why so high in Britain (UK)?
Is it just because the British are better counters and record keepers? Is the disease 2-3 times more lethal in the UK?10 AnswersCurrent Events3 months ago
