Welcome Back To AIDS Again

I'll begin with an admonishment to readers that this is highly speculative. I have a very good track record in "predicting the future," but it's because I'm a die-hard layman with nobody's bread to butter...a polymath synthesizer and dot-connector. I see shit early, because there are no incentives knocking at my door to look away.

I do the opposite, no credentials required. The whole Paleo thing—where I was a decent enough influencer to get on the same stage as MDs and PhDs in conferences—afforded me a sort of skill, and that was an ability to glean the base meaning of scientific studies. I love reading them. But too often, there's so much bullshit you know it from just the abstract. Developing a level of discernment over awe helps with that.

My Occam's Razor is honed very sharp. You might have noticed over many years that I don't waste time dissecting and trashing bullshit studies. I just call the authors grant whores and move on.
