Friday Funnies: Red EYE

Robert W Malone MD, MS Jun 21, 2024

The red eye has landed.

Switching back and forth between Kelvin, Fahrenheit, and Celsius has been a constant in my life, and I still can’t exactly figure out why we need three different ways to measure temperature. And yes, at some point, I learned the history of how they came about and the whys and wherefores.

But still… it always seems like a lot of conversions to get to the same point.

(In her dreams)…

OK – I had to look this one up. Although the above quote is cut up, Fauci actually said this. But even more bizarre, Fauci “predicted” what probably happened with the release of the gain-of-function manipulated SARS-CoV-2 WIV virus. Here is the full quote and the link to his paper, with Fauci as a single author.

Putting aside the specter of bioterrorism for the moment, consider this hypothetical scenario: an important gain-of-function experiment involving a virus with serious pandemic potential is performed in a well-regulated, world-class laboratory by experienced investigators, but the information from the experiment is then used by another scientist who does not have the same training and facilities and is not subject to the same regulations. In an unlikely but conceivable turn of events, what if that scientist becomes infected with the virus, which leads to an outbreak and ultimately triggers a pandemic? Many ask reasonable questions: given the possibility of such a scenario—however remote—should the initial experiments have been performed and/or published in the first place, and what were the processes involved in this decision?

Scientists working in this field might say—as indeed I have said—that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks.
