this has never been a marshmallow test. (a classic test of delayed gratification. wait 10 minutes to eat this one and i’ll give you a second one to go with it.)
it's more like one of those sneaky tests where they keep promising you a marshmallow in 2 weeks and then never give it to you while endlessly moving goalposts to see how long you'll continue submitting to a sunk cost fallacy argument made by authority figures.
“you’ve invested so much, just invest a little more and make it all worthwhile!”
but there was never a second marshmallow because none of these lockdown, mask up, and don’t go to school policies ever worked.
this is the whitewash where they try to blame you for “not believing hard enough for the magic to happen.”
it’s classic cult leader behavior.
when the aliens fail to come and take us all away to the promise land in their spaceship made of moonbeams, it’s the congregation’s fault for lacking faith, not the preacher’s for lying.
they took all your marshmallows and your liberty with them. they never had any to give you back
describing it as your failing is a dishonest, manipulative, “blame the victim” framing.
this sort of shabby hucksterism has no place in medicine.
Lucy and the football. You should learn just not to play the game.
Many, many extremely unimportant dweebs in government and the medical super-complex have found power and glory during the pandemic. They won't admit it, but the preening heroics of what they are "accomplishing" is either a religious experience or a drug. It's not helpful and it's not beneficial.
They can't give it up, because when they do 1) they simply go back to being nobodies and 2) there just might be some sort of reckoning / blowback for their "citizen abuse". So expect more and more goalpost moving, without end.
live your life, take a chance and ignore the party.

read it, hit a lot of the vaccine high notes that should be heard from day one.
no more npi's as from the beginning they are political the only real outcome is delaying the end.
There are three nuts with a platform. Hyde, Ding and Fisman in Canada. Educational stakeholders love them. Enemies of children globally.
el gato malo, a light in the darkness.
Given that the marshmallow test was done on children, she's treating us all like children.
Also the marshmallow test has been proved wrong.
Naive me is always amazed, even now, that so many doctors and HCPs are perfectly willing to go along with this Cult. Gigantic indictment of our society and the lost ability to think critically, or even to think at all. Maybe we deserve the times we live in. “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered.History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
The doc knows zilch about food poisoning.
‘Shabby huckster’ is an apt description of Dr. Zoe… This is all bait and switch plus the sunk cost fallacy.
Huckster is the Covid word of the year
If you guys had just waited two more weeks!...
Dude, you nailed this one. (Actually, I don't know that you are a dude and you nail most of them.)
The marshmallow is rotten!
Beating the rap(ture).
