My wife lost her sense of taste.

My wife lost her sense of taste a day after she was promoted. She got her Covid test results back.

NEGATIVE.

luckily for me, my wife got her taste back AFTER she married me.

Hmmm. "Remember, babe, how you always said you didn't like the taste of sperm? With every crisis, there's an opportunity!"

So all these people who lost their taste or smell just assumed they had the Wuhan.

NEGATIVE.


What exactly did she do to get promoted?
I’m really not connecting these two ideas.

Right, no connection other than bad timing. BUT, all for naught. She tested negative. Makes you wonder how many lost their taste and/or smell and just assumed they were a dreaded "case"

I know a guy who's lost his sense of taste/smell about 15 years ago after a nasty flu.

I still think there's something else out there that hasn't been identified because it doesn't serve an agenda. Too many weird symptoms I've heard about from people I know.

The PCR testing is quite inaccurate. I know multiple cases personally where someone tested positive, then someone in their household got sick with similar symptoms but then tested negative. I've heard of people coming back negative multiple times even while sick with Covid symptoms, but then tested positive on the 3rd or 4th test. Dr Drew Pinksy is a perfect example of that.

Did your wife lose her sense of smell?

Yah I don’t think the tests work on everyone. Or maybe they only work at a certain point in the illness. Once you cross that point you won’t teat positive anymore. Unless of course you do. The whole thing is stupid. I’ve had two tests now, both negative. First time I was sick, but recovering when I took it. Second time was just prep for a procedure.

You can nuke your sense of smell with too many zinc supplements, I hear.

PCR tests are not, and never were designed to identify whether someone is sick or not. So says the tests creator Terry Mullis. He actually debated this with Fauci who was conducting an HIV scamdemic in the 90's. But the covid ones have been particularly useless due to labs running them over the recommended cycle count. You see, with PCR, if you amplify over enough cycles, you can find traces of anything.

Exactly. That's why the WHO reduced the recommended PCR cycle count exactly on Biden's fraudulent inauguration day.

Actually, zinc supplements taken orally can help with restoring taste and smell. What you're thinking of is zinc nasal spray like Zicam and yes, it actually diminished my sense of smell when I used to take it 20 years ago.

This is all true and I think Terry died right before covid. Would have been interesting to have that guy around during all of this. He came up with the idea for PCR while tripping on LSD at the beach and staring at long strands of seaweed twisting together.

False negatives are easy to explain: PCR uses a very small volume of patient fluid. Think of a drop of water from a leaky sink. Now divide that by 100 or more. About 3 microliters. Then maybe 5 microliters of pcr reaction mix and maybe a few of buffer and a few of nucleotides to grow new strands of dna. Teeny tiny. So you can get sampling error where the 3 microliters of patient fluid just happened to not have any target in it. It does start out as a large volume though, where the bench scientist does a 'prep'. Yet this happens.

Another way to get False positives: Eventually the lab/room being worked in gets contaminated by the real positives. That can and does make their way into negative sample pcr wells.

That is true, I've done it a couple times. It's short lived though it comes back when you stop taking them a day or two later.

Perhaps if you're taking them as directed. I was taking two of them at a time, along with D3 and washing it down with quarts of tonic water.
After a few days of that regiment, I start feeling mild nausea or malaise and end up biting my tongue when I chew because there's not taste or sensation on my tongue.

But at least it warded off what ever cold or flu symptoms my little one was bringing home.

I can't taste/smell anything when I have any flu, cold or bad allergies. Not sure why this narrative seems to be exclusively being pushed as covid. Along with all the other symptoms for covid that are.......... the flu.

I bet it's because it's convenient to convince people they have something new.

I think Zicam made a nasal spray. Definitely someone did. About 20 years ago my dad lost his sense of smell using it and it never came back.

I'd prefer no taste with the wife actually. Certain things could go down better if you catch my drift ;) I'm mostly joking, but mostly not.
