Though I had never read that version. The ones I had read tells how the 'winged fairies' kept shooting some kind of paralyzing ray toward the witness.

It's interesting how they asked for water to drink. Fey folklore tells of how people in Celtic lands used to leave water for the Good People as a way to stay in good relations with them.

It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!

Newer model cars don't have distributors and rotors any more. Each cylinder has its own ignition coil and these can sometimes fail after a tune up (improper re-seating or breaking of the connector) or just from a cheaply manufactured coil.

So, yes, I've experienced "cranking" but it didn't inspire "wanking" or "spanking". But, I can say that the engine was heaving so badly that it broke one of the motor mounts. Certainly not recommended for a "joy ride" in your own car!

Vaccines: As someone who lives in a family of medical professionals, I think I'm a little biased about this subject. I have a friend who spreads this kind of garbage on Facebook and I've asked her why only to get a distracted response. The children will suffer.

...I forgot how I got here but everyone seems to be heading off in that direction. I hope someone brought food. I have a feeling this is going to be a long journey................

"One of the strongest links to this terrible set of disorders was a drastic change in the vaccine programs of the United States and many other countries, which included a dramatic increase in the number of vaccines being given at a very early age. No other explanation has been forthcoming from the medical elite.

In this paper I shall present evidence, some of which has not been adequately discussed, that provides a connection between excessive vaccination and neurodevelopmental disorders."

I do not trust the CDC, FDA or flu shots. Working in a pharmacy will change your view on things trust me.

Statistics demonstrate that vaccination works.I think there is much room for improvement in its delivery schedule and room for refinement within the vaccines themselves, but even as it stands the pros do outweigh the cons - there is always an amount of risk when taking any medicine, whether Modern or Traditional in nature.

I am diagnosed as having ASD - modern diagnosis includes a wide spectrum of 'disorders' - hence Autism Spectrum Disorder! There have been a number of formerly independently classified conditions that are now 'recognised' as being related within this spectrum which greatly adds to the more recent statistical shifts.

Re: Mutations - there are an important number of environmental factors to take into consideration, such as the presence of a number of toxins that may be identified within umbilical cord blood including: PCBs, DDT, BPA along with varying concentrations of lead, mercury, cadmium, manganese, arsenic, aluminium and pesticides, amongst others. The intrauterine phase of life has significant impact not only upon the evolving fetus but also upon its later adult stage...Furthermore, mitrochondrial mutations that have been linked to ASD can be inherited directly from the mother or may manifest spontaneously during development.

I feel vaccinations are somewhat of a 'red herring' when said to be the sole/primary cause of ASD, as there are far too many other factors and variables that come into play where mutations of DNA are concerned. If vaccinations play a part in that, it is most likely but a miniscule drop in the ocean of current environmental contamination in which we exist!

The most compelling correlation is between the quantity of vaccinations given in relatively short time spans. The sheer quantity and variation of vaccines given very early in life seem to be the main issue. The argument is often simplistically framed by entities defending their pharmaceutical turf because it is easier to cast the argument as one of whether to vaccinate or not, but that is the real red herring.

The Teachings of OA: Was the Netflix series inspired by Carlos Castañeda's Tensegrity techniques?

Talking about new series:

I just watched season 1 of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (TV series), the one from 2016 with Elijah Wood. It takes a great deal to burn my brain, and this show pushed me to the limit. I need to watch it many more times. HA!

You guys might watch it and see if it rings any interesting bells for you as well.
