This is just a small example, but Jack Dorsey claims to spend 45 minutes a day in a 220 degree sauna. This would kill most people and seems like obvious flame. Just like Elon Musk's rocket passenger system (which would compete against planes) or underground super tunnel system. Why are these people so gullible?

https://www.foxnews.com/tech/twitter-ceo-jack-dorseys-bizarre-health-regimen-sees-him-eat-just-once-a-day-and-take-three-ice-baths-before-work

To make things even tougher on his body, he has spent the the last three years alternating between his 37c baths and a 220-degree sauna for 15 minutes... three times a day.

https://www.newser.com/story/241400/mother-daughter-die-in-freak-sauna-accident.html

Saunas and Finland were under the microscope once again in 2010, when a finalist at the World Sauna Championships there collapsed and died after spending six minutes in a 230-degree Fahrenheit sauna.

journalists sure are bad at their chosen profession.

theyve got one fucking job. find out what people are doing and saying and then check their bullshit against irl logic, facts, etc.

steve sailers "crops rotting in the fields" series is a 180 example of this. journalists are constantly writing "news articles" about how you will LITERALLY have NO strawberries EVER AGAIN if immigration laws are enforced. after all, thats what the bigstrawberry ceo man told them.

ceo man good.

Journalists just repeat whatever people tell them. If you ever read an article on something you actually know about, you'll recognize that 90% of the time the journalist produced article is complete bullshit and they have no idea what they are talking about

https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/65213-briefly-stated-the-gell-mann-amnesia-effect-is-as-follows-you

Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray's case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I call these the "wet streets cause rain" stories. Paper's full of them.

In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know.
