Given To Fly

A lad had one of his testicles crushed in an accident at work and ended up being operated on that very afternoon. The surgeon ordered a plastic bollock from the local spares department, but during the operation he had a message that they'd run out of their bollock stocks and none were available until at least the following week! He was a quick thinking type of guy and substituted a pickled onion from his lunch box. A few months later he was in a local pub when a young man approached him and asked if he was Mr Pullen the surgeon? He said yes he was, and then he recognized the lad and asked him how things were in the 'downstairs department'? The lad said 'well, my girlfriend left me because I'd gone right off sex since my operation, but, on the plus side, whenever I see a cheese sarnie, it brings tears to my eyes and I could shag for England'!

Strategies used by parasites:

1. Mimicry: Parasites mimic host signals to avoid detection.
2. Camouflage: Parasites blend in with the host to avoid detection.
3. Manipulation: Parasites manipulate the behavior of their host to their advantage.
4. Mutualism: Parasites form a mutualistic relationship with the host, where both benefit.
5. Hiding: Parasites hide in tissues or organs to avoid the host's immune response.
6. Suppression: Parasites suppress the host's immune response to establish a long-term relationship.
7. Modification: Parasites modify host physiology to meet their own needs.
8. Reproductive manipulation: Parasites manipulate host reproductive systems to increase their own success.
9. Breaking down defenses: Parasites secrete enzymes to break down host defenses.
10. Hijacking resources: Parasites steal resources from the host to support their own growth and reproduction.

Strategies used by hosts to overcome parasites:

1. Immune response: Hosts mount an immune response to detect and destroy parasites.
2. Avoidance behavior: Hosts alter their behavior to avoid encountering parasites.
3. Physical defenses: Hosts use physical barriers, such as tough skin or shells, to protect against parasite attack.
4. Chemical defenses: Hosts produce toxic chemicals to deter parasite attachment or feeding.
5. Detection and removal: Hosts have mechanisms to detect and remove parasites from their tissues.
6. Cytokine production: Hosts produce cytokines, signaling molecules that coordinate the immune response and help remove parasites.
7. Cell-mediated immunity: Hosts use cellular immune responses, such as phagocytosis, to engulf and destroy parasites.
8. Adaptive immunity: Hosts develop an adaptive immune response, where the host produces specific antibodies that recognize and target the parasite.
9. Reproductive defense: Hosts alter their reproductive strategies to minimize the impact of parasitic manipulation.
10. Quarantine: Hosts isolate themselves or affected tissues to prevent the spread of parasites to other individuals or organs.

There was a sign prior to the earthquake in Turkey which happened yesterday.

A lens cloud appeared in Turkey on 19th Jan and it is said to forewarn a possible earthquake.

There has only been two mega earthquakes in Turkey since 2000.

The last one was in 2011, 7 months following the 3/11 earthquake in Fukushima.

Earthquake is said to trigger other earthquakes and it appears that Fukushima earthquake triggered the Turkish one back in 2011.

 

There has been signs in Japan as well, e.g. some fish from the deep sea were found on the beach from mid January. So it's possible that there could be a reversed event of 2011. 😖
