  1. I am impatiently waiting for the Supreme court to decide my fate. Yes, many call me a "anti-vaxxer" because they have to label. I have stage 4 Melanoma. (Keep in mind, millions of people in similar positions as myself) I had been treated with 39 infusions of Keytruda. Google it. 2 years straight. My immune system is not compromised, and I have antibodies to show I had carona. If mandates are not stopped, I will lose my job. 3,000 people work there. Company is not going to pay for testing, and the more accurate tests are around $125.00 a pop. And, even at that, anxiety is bad enough getting PET scans every 3 to 6 months and waiting for those results. "But you have a medical exemption". Here is how your medical exemption works. A Doctor has to sign a legal bound letter stating you should not get a vaccine due to a medical condition. Guess what? Find me one that will do this. I have contacted 6 in person, including my two Oncologists. They all say they do not envy my position, and they all say there is no data on people with cancer, or many other terminal issues. And there probably will not be for a very long time. They said they can not sign a exemption, or even a letter saying I "should" get vaccinated. Either way, they could have lawsuits against them. Yes, they said it. "So, just get tested then". Sure, while the vaccinated get to carry and spread without testing to come to work. And, every negative test (best ones out there are about 80% accurate) means 10 days off. We have to use our personal time off. And when that runs out, it is unpaid. Bye bye vacations, and other needs for personal time. No thank you. I am 4 years into a 17% 5 year survival rate, and healthy as a horse. Some can say a miracle, if they knew the entire story. I am not risking putting a mRNA injection into my body, that already had Keytruda messing with my immune system to recognize cancer as bad. 50% of people that go on Keytruda have to go off, due to side effects of the immune system attacking vital organs. And this can also happen years after treatment. Sure, let's introduce something like a mRNA to help possibly start that up. I am BRAF negative, so Keytruda is about my only option. My next ones would be clinical trials. And I was part of one of those, and still am on one. I know how clinical trials work.They may be my next course of action if I come out of remission. So, I can not get a medical exemption, and Brandon did not think of that. But again, he promised to cure cancer if elected. A lot of people do not think of people like me, and there are a lot of us. Nope, we are selfish anti vaxxers. So, I will have a choice. Get a jab and see what happens, and have my anxiety really go through the roof. (mixed reactions in my cancer support group on people that have) Or lose my job, health insurance, house, and families sole source of income. There are no exemptions. This is a dictatorship, everyone get one or else. This is a personal threat on people like me. This is saying F you to people like me. And another question. Vaccinated can carry and spread. Yet, unvaccinated, like me, come into work with a negative mandatory test. But the vaccinated do not have to test. So, they get someone like me to test positive next time. How is this fair? How is this about "everyone's" health? This just happened 2 weeks ago. A fully vaccinated person came to work, and went out and is in Hospital. 7 others out quarantined. It should have been a plague. Most people living in fear on this would put a gun to their head if they were diagnosed with a terminal disease. Rant over. Have fun with this. I doubt I will be back anytime soon. Did not want to see carona talk, but I did. And, I fell for it, hook, line and sinker.

  2. Was not sure where to put this, but I think spirituality is fitting. I hope sharing this can inspire others. A very condensed version of: The Gift cancer gave me. Let me start at the beginning. Late August 2013, after 2 years of my wife telling me to have a mole checked on my leg, I had it removed. It was stage 2 Melanoma. It would have been stage 0 or 1 had I listened to her before. Had I worn sunscreen, and / or protected myself while playing in the Sun, it would be nonexistent. A large chunk of my leg was taken with it, and some lymph nodes. They were biopsied and called clear of cancer. Also had clear margins. Pretty much sounded like “they got it all”. I had googled Melanoma, not really knowing that much about it. Never realized how bad it is. Stage 2, five-year survival rate around 98%. So, hey, not bad. It did scare me enough to start wearing sunscreen. Yes, now at 47 years old. So, all good, everything else as normal. Life goes on, no big deal. And, off to Arizona from Oregon. Fast forward 5 years to 2018, December. I had been getting very fatigued and had some pains in my lower stomach area. I had started a new job, and figured I was getting out of shape. So, changed my diet, and tried to exercise more. It had gotten to a point where I could not do much without being winded. After 2 months of this, and worse, I went to my Doctor. I had almost asked a co worker weeks before to call 911, but instead ignored it, and went home. Doctor felt the area and checked to see if I had internal bleeding. Was sent straight to the emergency room. For 2 days I was given blood. I should not be typing this. I should be dead. CT scan was done, and on Feb. 28th, 2018 a large tumor, and part of my lower intestine was removed. Stage 4 Melanoma, five-year survival rate around 17%. I was in the Hospital for 7 days and 8 nights after surgery. Recovery was horrible. Having my gut cut open from belly button to chest is no fun at all. What set in right away was fear. Fear that I really did not “believe” in anything after we die. Does anyone, really believe? I had always said, “when I die, I die”. Thought I was such a bad ass, and life would continue to retirement, and beyond. Not thinking anything about the future. Not even thinking about tomorrow. Just living in the now. I was not as much even concerned about treatments yet, and options. I was dying and was now scared to death. I do not want to die, we are supposed to live forever. We should not die. We do not really die. It is not real. I was really struggling in my head about the afterlife. I was consumed with death, and what happens when we die. I was terrified. I am still worried about it, but no where near how I was. I have found a form of spirituality and will leave it at that. I can now say I respect anyone that believes anything 100%. I do not care what religion or belief it is, it has to be a huge comfort to know that when we pass on, we go to a better place. To have had that in my head, at that time, would have been priceless. None of that is so much a concern now. And here is why. I realized something in my journey for “spirituality”. For the better part of my life, I had taken life for granted. Big time. And, I believe 9 out of 10 people do. So many people do not realize how each day is a gift. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. I had been riding Motorcycles since my mid 20’s, and had always had a “bucket list” of places to go. For a good 30 years, I had my health, and the money to do it. And I never even tried to accomplish anything on that list. Not even one. I do not know that any of them even really crossed my mind. I let days go by, weeks, months. I had been offered to go on trips, or camping, or fishing, or even just a day out. A lot of those times I made excuses not too. Just sat around and watched football on TV, or drank some beers and “hung out” at home. 20 years has gone by like nothing. Gone, and I cannot get them back. None of them. What a wasted opportunity. I had done some things, but I did not scratch the surface of what any of us can accomplish and see. Not even close. That is a regret I will have, but have also started erasing. How can Cancer give me a gift? Here is how. It woke my ass up. It slapped me in the face so damn hard that I hurt to this day. And this hurt is my motivation. It told me “Get off of your ass, stop making excuses, make it happen!”. It taught me that I am number 1. As each individual should be. All of us should make “Me” number one. I needed to do what I needed to make me happy. And, I should have done this my entire life, and so should everyone else. Sounds selfish but hear me out. If you stop making excuses, and start making your goals happen, and you enjoy them, you will be happy. The more you do this, the happier you will get. Now, everything I am saying Is a work in progress still, but I have made huge changes in my life. And, for the better. By making myself happy, and pushing out the negative, negative things go away, and positive ones come in. Including people, and friends, and respect for myself. This makes an environment where other “happy” people will naturally be in your bubble, and the negative ones go away. Making YOU number one is not selfish, it is helping you and everyone in your world. If I am happy, I am good to be around. And, my happiness will spread. When you see someone smile, does it not usually make you smile? I had plenty of people at first saying “I am here for you”. I found most of them have left. Now I see why and am not hurt at all. If you are not an important part of my life, I could care less what you think of me. Even if you are, to a point, I am not going to care about your opinions. Why should I? I am focused on making me happy, not you. You should do the same. Shouldn’t everyone? Next, I started budgeting hard, and working overtime. I had plans, and I refused to make excuses to why I cannot do them. I already had my first 2 bucket list rides / trips planned for the Summer. No way was I not doing it. Life is too short. I started paying off bills and saving more and more. May of 2018, a bit over 3 months from my surgery, I made my first major bucket list ride. Million Dollar Highway, Colorado. Always heard about it and saw pictures. But now, Cancer told me I am doing it, period. And, I did. I worked my ass off and saved. I dreamed it, planned it, booked it, and did it. No excuses. Road part way up in the rain. That trip really woke me up to the potential of our minds, and how strong we can be if determined enough. And realizing how short life can be does that. That trip, I realized it would be so cool to tow a trailer behind the bike, and camp instead of Hotels. Plus, cheaper. Budget it, and make it happen. In Colorado, my mind was saying “The Black Hills, South Dakota”. Well, this is something I wanted, and it was going to make me happy. So, since I am the most important person in my life, I am going to do it. And, anyone joining me for the ride (pun intended) will also benefit from my new found gratitude for life. The day I returned, I made reservations for a campsite in Custer State Park, South Dakota. I installed a hitch on my bike and got a trailer to pull behind it. My wife and I rode 1200 miles one way, a week after she was in the Hospital with a brain bleed. One way to The Black Hills. Nothing was, or is going to stop me, that is in my power! I worked overtime, budgeted, and made it happen. And my wife benefited also. She has also learned about this gift. I could write a book on all of this, leaving out so many details, but just trying to make a point here. Since February 2018, and my stage 4 Diagnosis, I have done (and there is more) 9 of my “bucket list” rides and rode all 10 of the “top rated roads in America”. I have been through at least 19 States now, more if I really look. Smokey Mountains, Ozarks, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and more. Even the Summer last year, at the height of the “corona” I did not stop. 11 States alone at that time. Nothing is stopping me. I recently went up to Glacier National Park. I set out on a hike to Grinnel Glacier. A 13 mile “advanced” hike, and I am by no means in shape for that. I bought all the hiking gear. Poles, camelback, boots, you name it, for this trip. I had been doing hiking in Arizona and New Mexico, to ancient shelter caves, granaries, and ceremonial caves. Most of these are not known to the public. This is one of my huge passions. I have pictures on my FB in my “albums”. This is something I will continue. More later. So, I looked at the information again. 13 miles, 2300-foot elevation gain. Couple voices said, “you can not do this, find an easier one”. I stuck up my middle finger, and I said a few words. And the next morning at 7:00 AM I set out. Pics also in albums on my page. It was rough, but I never gave up. I kept telling myself I am going to do this. Nothing is stopping me. I made it to the Glacier, and higher to the summit. I am 55, and not going to lie. Seeing “kids” half my age giving up half way there made me very proud. And I did this for me. And this, to date, is my biggest accomplishment ever. I spent about 4 full days fly fishing for the first time, all day, in the river. Fully protected of course from UV. Found another passion, and going to make trips for this. Have on in November on the San Juan River in New Mexico already planned. Dream it, plan it, schedule it. No excuses. Spent the Holidays in Charleston, and Savannah on another adventure. I started working out every day after work. I have bigger plans, and need to be in better shape. Back to the shelter / ceremonial caves. Someone I still need to meet in person, fate brought into my life. And has helped me with some of my hikes. Gave me a direction let’s say. Spending time alone in these sacred places is very special. You can feel the spirituality. It is a medicine for me. I sit for hours in them, and just listen to silence. And my mind just relaxes. No anxiety, no thoughts of cancer. Just, peace. No way to explain it. Going to some this weekend. Again, just a small version of what cancer has done to me. I can say I have been re-born. And in a better way. No way would I be experiencing what I do now. My priorities are in check, and so is my mind. Weekends are also part of this. Get out, day rides, hikes, time with friends. No more excuses. None. At least twice a month I take my bike up Mount Graham. 11,000-foot elevation. I take a hammock, and a book. Another dose of medicine. I can say, without a doubt, nature is healing. It heals the body, mind, and spirit. I would have never said this 5 years ago. Not the way I do now. And I thank Cancer for this. Another gift it gave me. This is part of how I live a Pagan / Heathen lifestyle. Respect all life. I also had always wanted at least one of my arms “sleeved”. But I had no idea with what. I had some random ass tattoos in a few places. My entire left arm is now sleeved from shoulder to wrist, every bit of it. With the most meaningful, and life telling story anyone could have come up with. It tells the story of what I have written, and reminds me of how we should live, and that life is a gift, and short, and a cycle. I love it! Here is a very, very short explanation of part of my sleeve. It is a narrative, a story, my story of what got me this far and what I embody for the future. Emotionally, and physically. When I can describe it better, I will. The compass is a Norse symbol. Ancient. Called "vegvisir". It is intended to help the bearer find their way through rough weather. So, I am sure you get that meaning right there. The skull represents both overcoming obstacles, and also that death is inevitable. Therefore, we should always live life to the fullest. Fear of mortality should not dictate the quality of life. The other side is Freki, or Geri. Not decided yet as I am getting the other in a bit. Both have the meaning of "Ravenous", or "hungry". I am always hungry to go out and see more of this Country, and world if possible. Hungry to have adventures. There is a bit more then that also. But, not too easy to explain. The Raven is Munin, and the other one is coming later. Hugin. In short, they are hard to explain also. They represent thought and memory, and have more meaning with that. The Mjolnir (Thors Hammer) represents a lot. For one, protection. The entire thing goes deeper then this for me, but as said. Pretty hard to explain it all here. It all started with my Diagnosis, and my new found understanding of nature, mortality, balance of all life, and trying to live it the best, and most enjoyable way I can. This has been a short version. I may add to it, or just may leave it like this. I am not stopping my journey, and not taking my foot off the gas. I hope this can inspire others. I should not be here. It is hard for me to accept that I had / have an 80% chance of my life being over in this body. I am now 3 years and 8 months NED. Basically, in remission, or maybe, somehow, with no cancer. Fate will tell. I wish I could bottle up the way I see and feel life now and make everyone drink from the bottle. Yes, I have Cancer. Thing is, we all die one day. None of us are immortal. Whoever says Cancer is going to kill me, or you? I can get hit by a car, have a heart attack, trip and break my neck. None of us know how we will go, and almost all of us have been taught to fear it. That is where we all screw up. First, we take life for granted. Then, when, or if, we get to stare death in the face, we fear it. And don’t go telling me “I am not afraid to die” because I will know you are full of crap. You are taking life for granted and I know this. We all need to focus on life, and not death. Start doing the things you dreamed of. Make it happen. Stop making excuses. Stop letting days go by and saying, “maybe next time”. There may not be a next time. No regrets. No do overs. In short, that is the gift I was given. We are not immortal, and life is to be enjoyed, not lived in fear. I am grateful and will do everything I can to live this way. It is not easy and does have bumps. Sometimes major bumps. I have my days, but nothing like before. I am still afraid, but that fear is nowhere near where it was and is now a tool to push me to live. None of us have any control over when, or how our lives will end. We only have control how we live them every day. We can not live in fear, we need to be out living. Not sitting around waiting for tomorrow to come. “Life is a game, play it; Life is a challenge, meet it; Life is an opportunity, Capture it. Life is a gift, cherish it “

  13. YouTube has removed viral QAnon videos that promoted the false claim that Donald Trump is the nephew of fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. The two-part conspiratorial Jesus Strand series, uploaded in October 2021, racked up more than 300,000 views on YouTube until it was removed last week after Newsweek alerted the platform. Over a series of increasingly fantastical claims, the hosts in the videos claimed Jesus Christ had numerous descendants, including assassinated presidents Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy and World War II general George S. Patton. Further bizarre claims made were that Trump was secretly the son of General Patton, thereby also a member of Christ's bloodline and was the nephew of Mussolini. https://trump24h.com/story/youtube-removes-qanon-videos-falsely-claiming-donald-trump-mussolinis-nephew-newsweek

  17. No, I told you Trump makes facial expressions just like Mussolini did. Pouting lower lip being the most prominent and most ridiculous one. It's a worrying sign there's something horribly wrong with the upbringing of a child who does that, let alone supposedly grownup person. There is certain likeness, obviously, but all pudgy (while narcissist and immature) men look a bit alike. It's quite possible Trump deliberately adopted that pouting expression, mistaking it for a sign of confidence. If only he adopted Mussolini's hairdo, it would be a bit harder to spot there's something seriously wrong with him. The funniest thing about this latest, usually schizophrenic Qanon word salad, is that I seriously expect Patton to rise from his grave and beat the crap out of the author.

  23. Hello Unexplained Mysteries well it’s almost a New Year and if you reading this you have survived one of the most terrible years for mankind as a whole. My free gift to everyone is the best gift anyone can ever give another, and it costs nothing but the rewards can not be purchased with all the money ever made. My wish for everyone is Peace and Happiness starting now and continuing for the rest of everyone’s lives. This gift is given free -costs nothing, yet they come from our own heart and minds and the pleasure we receive from giving them will come back to each of us 100 fold. Forget about all the anger you feel toward those who have wronged you in anyway, and wish everyone you meet all the best the New Year can bring them even our enemies. Those simple words and thought expressed to another can bring more happiness to those less fortunate or feeling down than any gift you can buy. Now I am not saying if you can afford it not to give a gift to those who truly need it, because it would be wonderful if for only once no one goes to bed hungry. But, simple kind words can be just as effective and encouraging to those less fortunate than we are. I know many are reading this are thinking look at this dam idiot, he has no room to talk he is a negative person who has harmed others with his comments and look at him acting high and mighty oh my what a Dam fool. Well to those who feel that way about me you most likely have good cause to do so, because I have been a Jackass to many and I deserve those negative feelings and thoughts people feel about me. Because I have been wrong and ‘I freely admit it, so all I am able to do is APOLOGIZE TO ALL I HAVE WRONGED IN ANYWAY. Now listen closely because here is the gift you can give to yourself, I know I don’t deserve your respect or forgiveness but when you think of me and become mad your not harming me in anyway. That anger you feel toward me or others who have wronged you is only harmful to you alone, and when we hold on to anger it is reflected upon others we don’t want to harm. There is no way possible to hold anger inside ourselves and not in some way reflect that upon all those we encounter even those we love. So please it’s find to continue to hate or dislike me I deserve it, but release all you anger that you feel towards everyone and by doing this you will feel one hundred percent better, which means everyone around you will also feel wonderful. When you see someone who is Down and out a simple smile and a kind word can make all the difference in that persons day. If you see someone begging for money and it’s obvious they have nothing or that they have some form of substance abuse issue or possible mental health issues don’t give them any money, buy them a burger at McDonalds or somewhere else and give them that if you can afford to do so, again the gift you receive will be inner peace and happiness which is the most important gift we can give ourselves and we all deserve that. In addition if possible we also should take a moment to forgive ourselves for those things we don’t like about ourselves the-energy produced will light up the lives of others not only our own and it’s free absolutely free. Because again if we harbor ill thoughts about ourselves it will be reflected upon all around us and especially those we love and cherish. You may be thinking this guy is nuts, but if you feel that way you are full anger, and holding on to anger is like sticking your hand in a flame only you get burned. My wish again is for everyone to release that anger and to receive the reward of a clear mind and peaceful thoughts. I sincerely with all my heart, and all my thoughts wish everyone here and in the world all the best that life can offer, but never forget to receive the gift or happiness along with inner peace we must release our anger and forgive and love ourselves and this alone will Shine a light and warm the hearts of all those we encounter. To the forum Moderators and the sites owner I apologize for all the stress I have caused you all at times and ‘I want to thank you for providing this opportunity to all who receive the gifts this community offers. The way you have chosen to maintain order on this forum should be used as an example for all public forums online. My health is not so great, I am most likely going to receive another surgery in the near future. This site has given me a wonderful place to exercise my mind, because until my current situation is fixed I am not as mobile as l have been all life so I am truly and absolutely grateful for you all putting up with me I know that has not been and easy task at times so than you Saru, I am again grateful. Last there is a few very wonderful ladies on this forum who have given me encouragement when I have been down and they know who they are, to me they are LIGHT BEARERS and they touch everyone around them by shining that light upon others. There is no need to mention names because again they know who they are, I am grateful for your friendship and kindness. Thanks to whoever takes the times to read this, again Sincerely I wish everyone the best this coming New Year can bring. I wish you all and your families and friends, good health, peace of mind, happiness, and prosperity! Oh and by the way if some of you find this worth while, don’t thank me, my wife and ‘I have all we need which is each other and the love we share, save your thanks and kind words fir those you know really need them, that’s my wish! From Mr. and Mrs Manwon Lender Happy New Year!

Maybe it's the wheat starch, flours (potato, corn, rice), vegetable oils, emulsifier, salt, seasoning, maltodextrin, dextrose, monosodium glutamate, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate, sodium caseinate, modified food starch, monoglyceride and diglyceride, autolyzed yeast extract, malted barley flour, wheat bran, dried black beans, .....or just the 42% potato solids! Who knows? Who cares?

  44. So Christmas dinner had a few glitches. First I was melting butter in the micro wave when I hit 2 minutes instead of 20 seconds. Well that exploded and I had melted butter everywhere. Then a tray of chicken on the lower rack of the oven started to burn and the whole house was smoked out with the smoke alarms blaring. The kids were watching a Christmas movie and never moved a muscle. It took a good 30 minutes to open the windows and get the smoke out…I love the holidays…
