    Are 99% of COVID-19 Deaths Among the Unvaccinated?

    I found the above meme on Facebook, and reposted it on Twitter. I should relaly not have been surprised, but I got quite a bit of negative reaction from people saying I was spreading disinformation.

    Shape-Changing Light From Plane with Nikon P900 - Polarizing filter + Venus?

    Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IF3w0kI53aU Just looks like Venus at sunset? But when zoomed in, it takes on all kinds of shapes I've got a P900. To me these all look like some kind of optical distortions of a small light source (i.e. Venus). However I've not seen anything this...

It was only after a drawn-out “pursuit” that she sought help from senior officers, who told her it was Jupiter – some 365 million miles away. The dozy PC had...

    Nimitz ATFLIR Focus Issues

    The available Nimitz video is obviously low quality. It's just 240 pixels high, and only uses 214 of them (i.e. its about 214x214 pixels). It's also blurry. Not simply the target being out of focus, but the numbers on the screen are blurry. However, this seems to be mostly the result of...
