Q&A: Supernerd on the “Telegram” messaging App

Dear Supernerd,
Hello: In the last podcast you briefly mentioned that you would not use the texting app “Telegram.” Any particular reason?


SuperNerd replies:

While I said that I have no intention of using Telegram, I am NOT saying that there is something questionable about it and that the service should be avoided. Any non-FAANG* service is an improvement over something which is data-harvesting or not encrypted.

*FAANG is a common abbreviation in tech circles for “Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google” and generally is applied to high tech Silicon Valley companies in general and not just the five FAANG

What I don’t like about Telegram is that you *must* give it access to your Contacts in order to use the app and I’m not sure who runs that application (a team of Russians and “other people” who are based in the UAE if Wikipedia can be believed). Granted, what I know about Signal won’t fill an encyclopedia and the dude “Moxie Marlinspike” is a subject for further research. Both Telegram and Signal are end-to-end encrypted chat apps but at least Signal will let you use the app without requiring you to give it access to your contacts. If you have a Google Voice number you can use that for setting up your Signal account (and I presume it would work for Telegram as well) that way you’re not leaking your real number (and you can set the Google Voice number to permanent Do Not Disturb mode so even your Signal/Telegram number won’t be a source of unexpected phone calls).

Recommendations: I personally like Wire the best but am using Signal the most right now and am pushing family and friends who haven’t gotten an account to adopt it since it’s easier to get started than with Wire — though with so many people starting accounts on Signal in the past few weeks there have been some availability issues. Signal suffered a major/total outage on Friday January 15th because the server load became too great and there were some issues around 2pm Eastern Time on January 20th as well. The massive adoption of Signal is due in large part to people being de-platformed from other services (Twitter, Parler, FB, YouTube, etc) and the Signal Foundation run their own server farms so there may continue to be outages and hiccups for the next 30 to 60 days while they orders as many servers as they can to handle the increased load.

I recommend the following podcast episode and the table of encrypted chat programs to analyze and compare.

Yay! Another Ivermectin Testimony!

Good morning Ann,

I just wanted to send you a quick thank you for the Ivermectin recommendation for Covid19 prevention and treatment. I was afraid to try it at first because of the lack of recommendation by any *medical groups* (honestly not that their approval really means much anymore) and didn’t want anything to happen to family members if I gave them doses of it. Well long story short, when I saw your post about the NIH approving Ivermectin as a preventative and treatment for Covid19, I went out to Rural King at 7 AM and bought a bottle for my family to use. I gave to my mom, sister, and nieces to use as a preventative and drove over to my aunt and uncle who were struggling with Covid this past Saturday. I just got a text from my aunt who told me that she was feeling a lot better as of yesterday, and that’s without a 2nd dose of Ivermectin. Unfortunately my relatives live over an hour away and I haven’t been able to give them a 2nd dose yet but definitely will be this weekend.

Please know of my prayers for you and a great big thank you for all that you do! God Bless you Ann.

The Great Awakening

If you’re really serious about dumping the heresy of Americanism and having adult thoughts and discourse about the path forward governmentally, let me recommend looking at one of the most stable republics in human history, overthrown only by Freemasons relatively recently: the Venetian Republic. It lasted from ARSH 697 until ARSH 1797. ELEVEN HUNDRED YEARS. Think about that.

I recommend reading Norwich’s “A History of Venice”.

They had what, to my mind, seems to be the best system of governance: an ELECTED MONARCHY. The Venetian monarch was called “the Doge”, or Duke in modern English.

No hereditary nonsense. No imbeciles or degenerate perverts inheriting power just because they happened to be the firstborn son. It’s the perfect combination of meritocracy with the stability of a monarch. And, let us not forget, the Vicariate of Christ was instituted by Our Lord Himself as … an elected absolute monarchy. Quite an endorsement, no?

It’s been staring us in the face all along.

Just one example from over my transom in the past 24 hours +/-…

“The honest truth is that Trump duped a lot of people. I voted for him in 2016. But a hard look at reality leaves one to conclude that he’s in on it and has been this whole time. It’s all been a giant lie. A big show. I didn’t vote in November because I won’t consent to being governed by these people. I’m done with the “voting for the lesser of two evils” garbage. Give me a Catholic monarchy or give me death.

Mailbag: The Booze-in-the-Yogurt secret is out.

“It’s for the calcium” line is all a lie. Plain Yogurt is a vector for liquor. And tahini (toasted sesame seed paste). Or both. (Plain yogurt plus tahini plus Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey… say goodnight, Gracie.)


Ann,

This is what I love about being a senior citizen: When you walk down the street and you pass another one, they always acknowledge you. Whether it be a nod, a smile, or a ‘hello’, senior citizens are cordial and respectful to one another.

Last night I was in the supermarket and was loading up my cart with yogurt for my wife. I look up and about eight feet from me is a guy maybe 6-7 years older than me laughing his head off. He starts to tell me that he does the exact same thing, bringing home tons of yogurt for his wife. He says he can’t figure out why she loves the stuff so much until one day he happens into the kitchen and see her pouring a small shot of Kahlua into the cup of yogurt!

God bless,

Self-mutilating Madman and Mass Murderer, Richard Levine, to be Fauci’s #2 in Post-USA Regime

Remember, the conscienceless psychopath Levine pulled his mother out of her nursing home, and then intentionally seeded the nursing homes of Pennsylvania with viral pneumonia cases in order to get as many dead bodies as possible for the optics in order to advance the Corona scam and totalitarian putsch. Besides being a sex pervert, he is also a legit mass murderer. Here is a reprint of my reportage on Richard Levine and his perverted life from this spring.


Yep.  This pretty much sums it up.

The “Secretary of Health” in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is a literal madman, a person who just a few short decades ago would have been locked up in a mental hospital for his own protection.  This is no exaggeration.  This madman, Dr. Richard Levine, is a notorious sex pervert, who has now mutilated his body and wears women’s clothing.  In the press he is referred to as “Rachel Levine”.

THIS MADMAN IS HOLDING THE CITIZENS OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA UNDER HOUSE ARREST AND HAS SUSPENDED ALL RIGHTS UNDER THE CONSTITUTION BY HIS MERE FIAT.  THIS MADMAN IS DESTROYING THE ECONOMY OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA.

Levine was installed as Secretary of Health PURELY because he is a sex pervert.  He is in no way qualified, is clearly morally insane, and he was notorious amongst the medical community in Pennsylvania for his obvious choice to pursue a career in… wait for it… ADOLESCENT MEDICINE so he could give physical examinations to naked teenaged boys and girls.

Here is a testimony of a man who suffered a physical examination by Levine when he was 14 years old.  When Richard Levine was announced as Health Secretary and appeared in drag, this man, sickened, wrote this testimony.  Click over and read the whole thing. Language warning.  Adult eyes only, as you can imagine, if you click over to the original, folks. Remember, this was written in January of ARSH 2015.  Excerpt:

Within months of Richard Levine’s entry into adolescent medicine practice at Penn State-Hershey in 1996, he gave me a full physical exam. I was about fourteen, and I immediately knew that he was too g****mn weird to be looking at my junk. He had two or three residents or medical students shadowing him, all of them perfectly professional in their demeanor, which I realize in retrospect was no mean feat for young men under the tutelage of such a strange bird. The exam per se wasn’t inappropriate, let alone criminal, but Levine had the weirdest, most inappropriate bedside manner I can recall ever enduring from any clinician. All the intangibles that cannot be taught or legislated he managed to completely f*** up. It was a brief nightmare, but it was a nightmare nonetheless. Levine somehow had a good enough reputation among his colleagues in the area that my dad was referred to him by a nephrologist after my previous pediatrician told me that she’d leave me to my own wits on genital problems now that I was a big boy. Those weren’t her words, but that was her maturity level as a clinician. After Levine’s physical, however, I promptly told my dad that he had been a total creep and that I couldn’t stand the thought of seeing him again (or, more accurately, of him seeing me).

That was all she, or he, wrote about my involvement with Levine. My parents found me another adolescent medicine specialist who was socially normal, and I heard and thought mercifully little of him until word got around Hershey that he was now a she, or trying to become a she. I was at once floored and vindicated. Levine had been so bizarre and inappropriate in his bedside manner with me, at once unctuous, klutzy, and timid, that his having a midlife crisis and deciding that he was a woman seemed perfectly in character. If I had had to name an physician or nurse from my life that I expected to do such a thing, it would have been Levine. Even today, I can’t adequately articulate what was wrong with him. It’s like Potter Stewart and obscenity. Richard Levine performing genital exams on teenagers or–this is unfortunately his specialty–counseling anorexic girls about their psychological and self-esteem problems is as close to obscenity as one can get without criminal charges.

[…]

The things that were wrong with his bedside manner back in manlier times come through well enough in her professional portrait in our current era of feminization, if not femininity. Levine is just the person to fail a split-second gut check about, my God, do we really want to allow this freak to assume a statewide office overseeing medical policy? Appointing such a deranged wreck to statewide office is not something that plays well in Peoria.

[…]

Being quite familiar with Penn State-Hershey, I can also say that it’s even worse than it looks. I’m on a cordial first-name basis with a number of physicians, nurses, and social workers who were contemporaries of Levine’s at Hershey. These include some exceptionally intelligent, savvy, thoughtful, well put-together, well-adjusted individuals. These are natural leaders, people who I have no doubt are mentally and morally fit to hold positions of public trust. At least one of them used to regularly liaise with then-State Senate President Robert Jubelirer. At the institutional level Hershey is pretty dysfunctional, but it has no shortage of excellent candidates for important statewide medical offices. It’s an institution that is less than the sum of its parts.

There are some surprisingly good people on staff at Hershey, but they aren’t all above average. Rachel (sic) Levine is a f***ing clown. She’s (sic) about as low as one can get in the entire organization.

Not one jot, not one tittle…

A woman shall not be clothed with man’s apparel, neither shall a man use woman’s apparel: for he that doeth these things is abominable before God.

Non induetur mulier veste virili, nec vir utetur veste feminea : abominabilis enim apud Deum est qui facit haec.
–Deuteronomy 22: 5

What a deck of cards can teach us about the Infinite Power and Love of God

Without the Majesty of the Bigness, you can’t appreciate the Humility of the Smallness, and without the Condescension of the Smallness, you can’t appreciate the incomprehensible Love of the Bigness.

Many times we need a jarring physical reminder of the infinitude of God.  I’ll bet you have an excellent tool for such a reminder within easy reach right now.  Do you have a deck of cards?  Go get it.  I’ll wait.

Got it?  Now take out the jokers and shuffle it up thoroughly. We just want the normal 52 cards.

Now we are going to delve into mathematics, the “thumbprint” of God, I have long said.  Specifically, we are going to delve into number theory, and very specifically FACTORIALS.

You may vaguely remember that a factorial is when you multiply a number by every descending positive integer down to 1, so, for example, 10 factorial, written as 10! is:

10x9x8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1

And that number works out to be: 3,628,800

Factorials are what you use to calculate every possible combination of a set.  So, with a 52 card deck, to find every possible combination of cards from random shuffling, you start at 52, and then multiply all the way down: 52x51x50x49x48x47….x4x3x2x1.

That number works out to be 8.0658 x 10⌃67

That’s the SIXTY-SEVENTH POWER.  Ten with 67 zeroes after it.

I have to admit that this caught me by surprise.  If you had asked me to guess the number of possible orders of a deck of cards, I would have guessed in the tens of millions, and wouldn’t have been terribly surprised if it had been in the hundreds of millions or even over a billion.  I mean, SURELY, in all of those games of Poker, Blackjack, Bridge, Pitch and even Go Fish over all the years, SURELY the same shuffle orders must repeat every now and then, right?  Wrong.  Take a deck of cards right now, shuffle it well, and then hold it in your hand.  The odds of that order ever having happened before in all of human history, or ever happening again, are so infinitesimal as to be practically impossible.

52! or 10⌃67 is essentially meaningless to the human mind.  But there are a few exercises we can go through to get the very beginnings of a hint of exactly how vast this quantity is. These come from a mathematician called Scott Czepiel, via Sauce, via VanderLeun.

First, if we go for a moment with the current mainstream “age of the universe” of 13.5 billion years, which is almost certainly wrong, but just for the sake of argument, that is 10⌃18 seconds.  So if you were to have shuffled a deck of cards every second for the currently accepted life of the universe, you would not even have made a dent in approaching every possible combination.  Because remember, tripling 10⌃18 is NOT 10⌃54.  No no no no no.  What is 10⌃3, or 1000, times three?  Is it 3000, or 1,000,000,000?  It’s only 3000, of course.

The awe grows.

Let’s now try to put 52! into terms that our brains can even begin to contemplate.

Stand on the equator facing due west.  Take one pace every billion years. Once you have walked the entire circumference of the earth (assuming for argument that one can walk on the oceans), take ONE DROP of water out of the Pacific Ocean with an eyedropper.  Repeat this circumnavigation of the earth by taking one step every billion years until the Pacific Ocean is empty.  When the Pacific Ocean is empty, place one sheet of paper on the ground.  Repeat the billion year step circumnavigation-empty the Pacific Ocean one drop per circumnavigation cycle until the stack of paper reaches to the sun.

Congratulations.  YOU HAVEN’T EVEN MADE A DENT in 52! seconds.  If you repeat that ENTIRE process 1000 times, you will be roughly one third of the way toward the passage of 52! seconds.

The awe explodes.

But wait, here’s another scenario.  Deal yourself 5 cards from a shuffled deck every one billion years.  When you deal yourself a Royal Flush, buy a Powerball ticket.  If the Powerball ticket is a perfect jackpot winner, throw a grain of sand into the Grand Canyon.  Repeat until the Grand Canyon is full.  When the Grand Canyon in full, remove one ounce of rock from Mt. Everest.  When Mt. Everest is gone, repeat the entire cycle 256 more times. That would be 52! seconds. You could have shuffled a deck of cards every second for that entire time without duplicating the order of the deck.

The awe goes nuclear.

Now stop and consider that to God, 52! is easier to comprehend than the quantity ONE is for us.   In fact, “easier” isn’t the right word at all, because for God there is no “effort”.

Now let’s get personal.  The human genome contains something like 140,000 alleles that are set at the moment of fertilization of the mother’s haploid egg with one single haploid sperm from the father, with each ejaculate from the father containing hundreds of millions of totally unique sperm.

I would say, “Do the math”, but it literally isn’t possible for us.

Now think about how many millions of ancestors you have. And think about your children, and how many potential mates you COULD have had, but, for better or for worse, you had THAT child with THAT person.  And how many people your kids could make your grandchildren with… and then your great-grandchildren.

The truth is, sure, shuffling and holding a deck of cards in your hand can be a great way to relieve anxiety, if you are prone to such.  But really, a far superior way is to simply go look at someone you love.  Or even someone you hate.  And if you’re alone, just go look in a mirror.  As St. Thomas Aquinas taught, God can be known to exist from the human rational intellect alone.

But, of course, the best way to contemplate this is to go sit before Our Lord reposed in a Tabernacle, or in a Monstrance, exposed in His Eucharistic Majesty, because…

Without the Majesty of the Bigness, you can’t appreciate the Humility of the Smallness, and without the Condescension of the Smallness, you can’t appreciate the incomprehensible Love of the Bigness.

Now, if you are stressed out by current events: the death of the American Republic, the collapse of sane human society into an irrational luciferian death cult, the economic collapse, and most especially the Bergoglian Antipapacy and the eclipse of The Church by the antichurch, just stop and contemplate the infinitude of the selfsame God who is watching you read this, watching you shudder in awestruck terror at numerical quantities that He considers to be positively ADORABLE in their LIMITED SIMPLICITY.  And then realize that He is not only infinite size, but so far beyond that, He is infinite LOVE.  Of YOU. Personally.  And of your children.  And your parents.  And your spouse. And your friends. And your enemies.

He is, right now, looking at you with infinite love as you ponder and are freaked out by what are mere mathematical trivialities to Him.  And He loves you so much the more for it.  To Him, you are not only ADORABLE, but worthy of His Incarnation, Passion and Death on the Cross for you and you alone as many times as you go to Mass in your life, and then more. Infinity to the power of infinity to the power of infinity… just for the love of YOU.

Think of the numerical quantities that we have just discussed, that you can hold in your hand as a deck of cards, and then realize that LOVE makes mere abstract numerical quantities seem as nothing.  If a mere abstract numerical quantity can bring you to tears of awe and filial fear… just imagine what the LOVE, which is the pillar and bulwark of reality itself, can do to the human heart – but IF AND ONLY IF that human heart freely consents.

And please, PLEASE put aside any thoughts of God being “beat” by Antipope Bergoglio or his army of mid-wit sodomite minions.  This ISN’T a call to pacifism – it is exactly the opposite.  It is a call to forward action, to boldness, to ABANDONMENT TO THE DIVINE PROVIDENCE, knowing full well Who is in charge. It is a call to TRUST, to FAITH, and to LOVE, love of God and love of neighbor.  It is a call to stop living in servile fear of the world and the effeminate fear of suffering or even mere inconvenience, and to live in the peace and joy of FILIAL FEAR OF INFINITE LOVE HIMSELF.

You want to do the right thing and be brave for Him, because you don’t want to break His Heart.

As always, I sure hope this helps.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us, on your Vicar Pope Benedict XVI, and on Your Holy Church.

O the depth of the riches of the wisdom and of the knowledge of God! How incomprehensible are His judgments, and how unsearchable His ways! –Romans 11: 33
