There are no April Fool’s jokes in this post. It’s 2022 and the nature of “truth” and “reality” have already mostly dissolved – you don’t need me adding to the problem with bullshit pranks.

🦠 The knock-on effects of a COVID-19 infection currently include long-term cardiac damage, and, possibly, long-term brain damage. To that, you can add an increased risk of developing diabetes.

💩 Sarah Palin has announced she’s running for Congress in Alaska. I thought that was an April Fool’s at first, but the New York Times is reporting the story.
