'Cyclist Rab Wardell dies two days after winning Scottish title.'

I posted briefly about this in the mega thread.

 

I followed Rab's career for years, he lived locally to me although I didn't know him personally. He did several charity rides for men's mental health which I contributed to. He was a great guy, cycling was his life and there wasn't much he hadn't done on a bike including Road, cyclocross and even BMX freestyle.

 

He was in peak physical health. He returned to competition a few years ago after a long break when he'd mainly worked as a mountain bike coach.

 

He was almost certainly jabbed, he travelled to Europe for training and competition in July. I doubt he would have been allowed to compete without being jabbed, possibly even boosted.

 

While sudden death in athletes isn't unknown this doesn't fit the normal pattern. Usually it falls into one of two categories:

  • Young athlete dies suddenly, often during an event, due to an undiagnosed congenital heart condition. This normally happens at a relatively young age, teens or early twenties.
  • Older athlete dies of heart failure due to Atherosclerosis. This is due to a combination of heart disease and exertion. This normally affects athletes in their 50s or older.

Rab was 37 and he didn't fit the profile of either category. He was too old for it to be congential and his performance wasn't affected in any way as can be seen from his competition win. To say this is unexplained is putting it mildly. I hope there's a full inquest into his sudden death. There hasn't been a funeral announcement yet so I'm hopeful at least some investigation is going to take place.

I see, that despite giving a decent sized list, they are STILL refusing to speak of Rodney Marsh's death - which happened on the same day as Warne. Both were about to go to, or had just arrived at, countries where full 'vaccination' was a strict requirement for entry.

 

Both famous Aussie cricketers, both good mates, both just boosted - kept apart by the media even after all this time.

Pele is said to have had COVID before he died. Channel 5 in the UK anticipated his death, seemingly, because today (New Year's Eve) they showed the film that he acted in, "Escape To Victory", but would have been put in the TV schedule weeks earlier.

 

This is isn't Gospel, but I am pretty sure that 'Escape To Victory' is aired every Christmas, on one or the other of the main TV stations.

'John Stockton boldly suggests 'thousands' of pro athletes died after Covid vaccine shot.'

Written off as unscientific. 

 

I've noticed for decades now that if an argument uses the words 'science' and 'expert' and 'data', it's often using those terms to cover a lie.

 

It was the science that convinced most people to get jabbed. It was the data that convinced most people to get jabbed. It was the experts who convinced most people to get jabbed.

 

Not many stopped to consider that the science, experts and data were all lying. They knew that those three trigger words would prevent people's brains from being arsed to question what their ears were hearing.

"Trust the science." Put on a white coat and a pair of specs and gain instant respect. I swear that if some scientist came on the telly and said that dunking your head in a bucket of piss would ward off covid, people would comply.
