Football In Belarus

Many of my ancestors are from Belarus, and I’m quite proud of my ancestry. Belarus is one of very few countries where you can watch professional sports.

    Intergovernmental Panel On Corona Change?

    Governments and WHO changed Covid-19 policy based on suspect data from tiny US company

    Tony – early in the Covid issue I saw a leftist article lambasting Belarus for a poor response, but if mostly seemed to be an opportunitistic attack on the government in place.

    Good to see they did well here. Sometimes , as I learnt as an engineer, doing nothing is the best response.

    My wife says that Belarus has done well, partly because of their strong immune systems.
    She grew up in communist Czechoslovakia, and was later a tour guide throughout communist Europe, where she experienced the Belarus’ 19th century lifestyle in person.

    Belarus was more poor than her country, but she shared their lifesyle on weekends in the village with her grand parents. they had a dirt floor house, used an outdoor privy, had newspaper instead of toilet paper, drank water from the well, and were surrounded by chickens, and rabbits while playing.

    Our modern antiseptic life style is not great for immunity but is still better than what our “free world” governments have created for us now.

    You have to love that picture! Everyone but one person in the whole crowd is cheering and not wearing a mask. The only person in the picture wearing a mask looks like a young woman apparently hoping that the mask will keep the smells from all the armpits from attacking her nose.
