Excellent point, Hal.  Zinc is tough one to fully grasp and understand.  Zinc lowers copper so you have to take copper.  Then there's the whole elemental zinc, vs. this zinc and that zinc.  All that said, however, I was once taught that there is no healing without zinc.  If I start feeling even a little off I start taking a zinc complex.

A number of years ago we had an incident here where a box truck ran off the highway intersection, up the driveway of a house and embedded itself in the house. The driver fell asleep after pulling an all night shift working for a company that did LED lighting retrofits. That truck stayed there for years because they were afraid that if they pulled it out the house would collapse. Apparently the owner of the company bought the house and probably got a good deal on it. Insurance paid for the truck, homeowners insurance paid the homeowners. So what's a house with a truck stuck in it worth nowadays?

Now there is a new house there with BIG boulders in front of it.

I thought one of our infectious disease guys had said something about that had to do with the vitamin D being absorbed by the patient and not the effect the sun had on the virus.  That said, I was in a different conversation at the time so I could be wrong.

That said, there is plenty of direct sunlight out there where he lives.

I was always told that you actually don't get much vitamin D from sunlight, certainly not what your body needs. Doctors always recommend supplements to get levels up if you can't get it from foods. 

That said, I'm hearing that people with proper D levels fair much better if they do contract the virus. Probably what that doc was saying. That and C and zinc.

It's 10:53 p.m. my time and shows to be 106 degrees there.

 Snakes and scorpions is about the only thing that can stand that much heat!  The sand and rock must be like a furnace all night!

Doesn't look like the truck did to well either.  Wonder if he just fell asleep?

That is possible, he blew right through a stop sign.

It is also lucky there was no fire, this article shows photos of the gas pumps he ran over;

Great photos!   It doesn't seem like there is enough population for the cases to be up!   :011:

 :011:

The population is actually about 40,000 or so.  Though I'm not sure if that's counting snakes and scorpions.   :002:

You know the old expression "he bought the farm"? Well, this trucker bought the store.
