    Here's something I recently learned. You can have an amputation cremated to save and then add to the rest of you when you go belly up. My Billie had both legs removed just above the knees in the past 2 Mos. The nurses dubbed them "Thelma and Louise" with purple sharpies. Wifey is the strongest bravest person ever! :inlove:

    I dunno but it's $400 for both. Maybe it's by the pound. When I go I told my daughter to put what's left of me in the wooden tobacco storage box my Zio Enrico gave me. :)

    I was thinking you could Stonewall Jackson it and bury them somewhere else. It might be fun to confuse someone strolling though the cemetery 100 years from now.

    Is watching a lot of YouTube a sign of depression? Maybe. The people that advertise on YouTube certainly think so. Because I'm getting constant ads concerned about my mental health, including suicide prevention.

    Deion Sanders got the HC job at Colorado. He basically told the yoots that that he's cleaning house. :eek:

    It’s also THAT time of year.

    I watch a bunch of physics stuff, and always get solar commercials.

    Damn! I’m so sorry mate. She has to be a strong lady, you’re right to be proud of her.
    I’m diabetic, so far though it’s under control but it’s a fear that’s always with me. I don’t know how I could be that brave if I couldn’t walk free with Bandit the dog.

    I watch lots of science stuff, and there was a while where I was getting specialist equipment ads, like pipetting robots and chemical detection and weird medical equipment. Then I got a long ad about a particular brand of hip replacement, and they were doing these computer models of how they were installed and it was very interesting and I got into it. Then they sprung a video in the middle of actual hip surgery. I came really, really close to finding out how puke resistant my keyboard is. I still have nightmares.

    From experience, the procedure is a lot more pleasant after the anesthesiologist shows up.

    Before & after that... not so fun. The worst was when they had to press my hip flat to get Xrays. That was an inscrutable amount of pain for a couple of hours. Just enough to keep me from passing out.

    I asked for the video of the surgery and they wouldn't let me see it. It was hard to even get photos of the Xray.

    My friend, who's a paramedic and built like an NFL linesman, had to get his hip replaced a while back. The doc said it took 4-5 guys pulling to get the socket out, and then the same amount to shove it back in. They also wouldn't let him see any of the video, but I think for slightly different reasons. :D

    So glad to see his ass gone. Nobody in the SWAC can recruit as well, given his NFL career and his personality. I'd rather win the SWAC at a glorified HS stadium than see him win it on ESPN playing at Jerryworld

    St. Vincent is the name of a band?

    Sounds like a CSNY type trio writing about ways to help people and make the world a better place. That doesn't really gel with RHCP and other punk-style bands, who just kinda seem to want to tear things apart.

    It's so weird to me that some people think culture just stopped advancing fifty years ago.

    I’ve prolly told this before but old farts tend to do that.
    I had ear surgery way back when and chatting pleasantly with the anesthesiologist when he stuck a needle in my arm and said count backwards from 100.
    Afterwards, when I woke I had people coming to take a look at me. I asked the nurse what’s gives.
    Apparently I bent my arm and broke the needle then came over with my right and punched him flush on the jaw. Then it took four male nurses to hold me down while they stuck needles in me to calm me down.
    They moved the surgery to a different room because of the mess we made.

    Also the name of a hospital.

    That was 80s RHCP. Now they're favored by frat aholes and other assorted douchebros.
