Literal Borodin effect
Polistra has repeatedly cited the Borodin Effect,
named after old Radio Moscow's habit of switching to uninterrupted heavy music when something was wrong in the Kremlin. We're seeing a literal example right now as Deepstate media feverishly conspire to turn Hillary's latest collapse into a momentary 'overheating'.
This is counterproductive for your OWN purposes, idiots. Why do you WANT to have an Empress who dies before you "elect" her? How will that help? This little Kaine fellow doesn't have the same caliber of balls, nor the direct genetic dynasty connections. He will obey, but Les Deplorables will not obey him.
A subset of a much broader problem. Trump and Hillary are both OLD. After 60 most people NEED MORE REST. A small proportion of humans can keep running at full speed until 100, but the vast majority need to FUCKING SLOW DOWN. Boomers have persuaded ourselves that we can work at full speed until 80, and then have a full-speed "retirement" from 80 to 130, during which we will start only 400 new fraudulent IPOs per month and work only 900 hours per week instead of 1000, spending the other 100 hours in X-treme Sports and Traveling The World and running 10 ultraultramarathons per hour.
Crazy. Crazy. Crazy.
We constantly cite "increasing lifespan" as a reason for repealing the laws of human life, but "increasing lifespan" is a falsely built statistic. As I noted before,
and as even the SS Admin has vainly tried to point out, the expected lifespan FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALREADY REACHED 65 hasn't changed very much. The "increase" resulted from major cuts in childhood mortality.
As always, we're using mean instead of median to create deadly lies.
