Growing old gracefully: Face creams help but The Shot does not…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jane Stillwater @ 2:14 pm

     Google just informed me that “Consumers spend an estimated $382 billion on cosmetics each year.  Skincare products alone will represent a $135 billion market by 2021.”  Wow.  All that money?  Spent just to keep us looking younger?  Seems to me that looking younger must be a pretty important goal here in America, right?

       If this is actually true, then here’s a helpful experiment that each of us can easily try at home.  Look closely at all your friends and neighbors who have been locked down for the past 451 days — and have been given The Shot.  Then report your observations scientifically.  Tell the truth now.  Don’t the subjects of your study mostly look at least three or four years older than they should?  Kind of more gray around the skin tone?  Several more wrinkles near the eyes that didn’t used to be there before?   Be honest here.  Am I right or what.
      So here’s my point.  If it’s important to you to look less old than your age, then spending money on skincare is probably a good idea.  But if you truly want to look younger, then why are you letting Pfizer, Johnson and Moderna be your beauticians?  That makes no sense at all.

PS:  Speaking of old age, I just got back from spending four glorious days in the magnificent Sierra Nevadas — one of the highest mountain ranges on the planet.  And what did I learn?  That these monumental megalithic grand escarpments, higher than any imaginable man-made construct on earth, will be doing just fine in another four billion years from now, long after our current corporate war-mongering technocratic propagandized trans-human artificially-intelligent screwed-up locked-down surveillance states have long been forgotten.

     There’s a moral here somewhere.  “Nature bats last.”  Sorry about that, World Economic Forum.

PPS:  There are 1,671,329 residents in Alameda County where my home in Berkeley is located.  Newly-revised-downward figures just issued by county authorities state that only 1,223 of us died from You-Know-What in all of 2020. That’s only a 0.07% death rate.  On the other hand, 3,092 of us died from diabetes in Alameda County — yet we never locked down McDonalds or CocaCola.  What’s with that?


     When I told a nurse friend of mine what I had just learned about the 0.07% death rate, “That’s wonderful news!” she gushed enthusiastically.  But then I realized that she thought I mean it was 0.07% after over 50% of county residents had received an experimental injection.  Er, no.


Stop Wall Street and War Street (and Big Pharma) from destroying our world.   And while you’re at it, please buy my books.
