    So instead of 'the only gay in the village' it is 'the only gay on the iceberg'! Self congratulatory identity politics gone mad. Meanwhile in the destroyed communities of northern England, the poor (both hetero and gay) continue to suffer poverty while professionals pat themselves on the back for their 'radical gesture'.

    Pity the LBGTQ+ penguins...

    Sorry for not earlier responding to your post on the other thread — but my 'feminine creature' was thoroughly enraged with the new barn floor-tile pattern orientation — c'est la vie!

    If you remember the Addams — perhaps you'll notice why I think Liz Wheeler is an adult Wednesday that dyed her hair blonde. (And please refrain from comparing Madame as Morticia as I would then have to make a similitude of yourself as Uncle Fester. Anyway — Madame DeFarge is far darker than Morticia when she's in an angry mood.)

    I hope your Christmas will not be entirely alone — but I can imagine the silent bliss of fishing on the Mediterranean Sea...

    ...and I especially share your appreciation of telescopes. I also utilize Gutenberg — but prefer to read my grandfather's ignored library as there are so many of his favorites yet to explore. (Including an untouched collection of W.B.Yeats I'm ashamed to admit.)

    Too many enjoyable activities with the beautiful weather here!

    (I will happily grant your treat to my loyal Teutonic Freund.)

    Sufrido hermanito...

    Covid19..., US elections..., Brexit..., Chile despertó..., Malvinas Argentinas transender penguins ..........., and that sweet feminine creature of yours gets her pretty head troubled by the orientation of some terracotta tiles on a old adobe barn floor in a anonymous valley at the end of the world..............

    You in what was considered the center of civilization and myself here at finis terrae...

    What I expect is a mundo despertó in the coming year where the globalists will try to reorient our economic capitalist system and creatively implement carbon taxes to reappropriate wealth.

    It's interesting how they preach to us from Davos Switzerland how we need to follow their new world order — and curiously how the incoming Biden administration plans to continue the 20+ year Middle East occupation...

    Let's hope the little penguins work out their own complicated social order.

    Are you again trying to pull a “Rudy Giuliani” on me..., hermanito...?

    You woud be a perfect Flat Earther..., you know...?
    You question everything..., just not yourself...

    I'm just a simple campesino reading one of the number one topics on Twitter and sometimes I do think the world has gone completely MAD...

    - I would put another word starting with an “S” in front of a campesino that reads Breitbart... ;-)

    I assume 'S' is for Swedish admirer... ...but apparently that's the black sheep of the Nordic nations... ...speaking of which — it seems that those non-Swede wonderful butter cookie makers have the same opinion as I do of the effectiveness about wearing facemasks:

    I assume 'The Local' is another one of those Breitbart type radical news rags...

    NOPE 1..., not “Sweden” ....... I was Thinking of a word more like.... STUPendous...

    NOPE 2..., Die dumme Dänen..., as the little man from Braunau luuuuved to call them..., ain't not as STUPendous as Breibart...

    They correctly conclude..., like most of the rest of the world that...:

    ***“ Face masks give no clear protection from Covid-19 INFECTION to the wearer..., but DID NOT EXAMINE whether the wearer protects others by using the item.”***

    Though..., many other SERIOUS STUDIES in many other Countries have thoroughly examined the issue and concluded that mask wearers DO PROTECT OTHERS BY USING MASKS...

    I'll leave it to you..., me fellow Project Gutemberg User..., to search and find them said studies........., if interested...

    Don't hesitate in contact me if you should need any help...

    Yesterday, Chile surpassed 15K deaths due to COVID-19 so I'm not denying it's horrible threat to people — but this pandemic has been highly detrimental to our society. Specifically to our world order — and wearing a mask has become a political submission.

    I have NO problems with vaccines and hope they will allow our world to return to normalicy.

    The real disaster of this pandemic has been the economic shutdown to the underprivileged — the middle class has been less affected — and the privileged have generally thrived. The ultra-wealthy have REALLY profited!

    Take care of yourself and enjoy one of the greatest places on this flat earth...
