Finally, the cloud cover broke here. Too late for the supermoon and the Perseids but maybe, just maybe, it won’t rain tomorrow. The grass is at the stage where tigers can hide in it now. I have to cut it before the tigers realise that. A well-trimmed lawn is an effective tiger deterrent, although it doesn’t work on bears. Fortunately there aren’t many bears around here.
Here’s tonight’s moon. It was still there, behind all the clouds.
These days, as everyone knows, it’s just a big dead rock. Once it was teeming with life and civilisation, with green valleys and azure oceans. A population of little hairy people lived there in perfect peace and harmony, digging away in their cheese mines. What happened, you ask?
See all that white stuff over the surface? It’s salt. The little hairy people loved salt so much that they used to come down to Earth to suck it out of the sea. There is much less salt in Earth’s seas than there used to be, which is why people can no longer walk on water.
But the little hairy people overdid it. The masses of salt they imported dried out the oceans and killed all the plant life. And so the little hairy people are no more (apart from a few colonies hidden in sink estates on Earth, always very close to fish and chip shops). Salt, the great destroyer of life, killed their entire planet.
What a load of cobblers. Yet I am certain I can get a few drones to believe that rubbish. Looking at the comments on the latest salty news article, it seems that medics are seeing quite a few cases of salt deprivation lately. I especially liked this one:

When we admit a patient with hyponatremia (critical low salt) the dietician puts them on their one size low salt diet. The Dr puts them on a sodium drip.
Even when people are dying from lack of salt, the dietician still insists on a low salt diet. Fortunately it seems the doctor has more sense.
In the West, where salt is probably the cheapest food item in the shops, people are turning up at hospitals suffering from critical low sodium. There’s no salt shortage. It can only be because these drones have cut, as far as possible, all salt from their diet. Then there is the dietician who, faced with a patient dying from lack of salt, still believes salt will be bad for them.
So yes, I am certain that I can get a few drones believing in the little hairy moon people. They have believed far more outrageous nonsense than that. Here’s an example of a scared-of-salt drone, destined for a spell in the emergency room with a low-salt diet and a saline drip:

Seems like an absurd, contradictory study. No need to limit your salt but the spice leads to 1.7 million deaths per year. Anything you drop on your driveway to melt ice probably should be used with caution.
Anything that grows in dirt should never be eaten, neither should anything that produces faeces nor anything that is just a rock, like minerals. There you go, the perfect diet. You’ll lose weight fast and will continue to lose it even after you die. I guarantee you will be a very svelte spectre.
The article itself is a bit of a turnaround. A very large study – 100,000 people in 17 countries – concluded that the ‘no safe level of salt’ mantra of the Health Righteous is utter crap.
Meanwhile another study, done with no experimentation by the Salties who read a lot of studies they agreed with, concluded that anyone who dies of a heart attack was killed by salt. Guess which one gets attacked, and which one is lauded as credible by those who insist they have the right to control our lives?
Nonetheless, this ‘salt isn’t all that bad, you know’ story is something new. The MSM have begun to allow dissenting voices to be heard. They include the opposing view that ‘salt is bad, m’kay?’ but the MSM never included our opposing view when the story was all in the hands of the Righteous. Things are changing.
The cracks are getting wider.
