Re: Familiar spirits

No really you guys this isn’t has some flatulence. This is horrifying toxic emissions. If you lose communication with this facility, do not attempt rescue. Encase the facility in a containment structure and fill it with concrete. This cannot be allowed to spread into the environment. Are we talking...

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

Hot, dry wind not unlike a hair dryer and supposed to hit 40+ mph tomorrow. I tolerate it because I can breathe completely through my nasal passages. Fuck humidity.

Re: Petty annoyances

I’ve just been prescribed a statin. Any advice? I was on 40mg/day for several years. They gave me the gout. I went off them and never had another gout flare. I do interrupted fasting instead (It's not working for my triglycerides which are off the chart). I need to get some exercise into my lifesty...

Re: Small joys and random good things

my having choked a private for losing the dispatch to an LMTV (successor to the 5-ton truck) carrying live ammunition and disrespecting my squad leader resulted not only in a Company Grade Article 15 (you might call it Captain’s Mast) many years ago, but also in a negative assessment by Behavioral ...

Re: Small joys and random good things

A small thing, but my Drill Sergeant assignment has been deleted. Who knew that Article 15 would pay off? Can you translate that to civilian? Infantry Branch at Human Resources Command (HRC), responsible for putting Soldiers in various places, decided it was time for me to have a “broadening assign...

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

I've busted syringes and spilled ampules on my hands before with no issues. I didn't realize that was a common urban legend among peeps. Quick question for the pharm guy: I know that fentanyl patches are a thing. But since fentanyl by itself isn't a transdermal drug, what is the mechanism that allo...

Maybe the best outcome for now, pending some self-reflection and apology, is if the case drop off the front page and receive as much attention as when your crazy neighbor gets prosecuted for false police reports.

Re: Antivaxxers

Anti-vaxxers give me a dilemma, because herd immunity is important, but I do like the idea of stupid people doing things that prevent their DNA from propagating. So here's a deal: You still have to get vaccinated, as do your kids, but... If you object to vaccinations you get free homeopathic treatm...

Re: Familiar spirits

So, after 17 years it would seem that Ayleen (the spelling convention of the cattery whence she came) will finally find her Door into Summer. Hyperthyroidism and renal disease have proven too great a combination to overcome. On Monday, the vet will pay the final house call and we’ll find some nice s...

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

High humidity manages to make all unpleasant temperatures worse: hot weather feels hotter and cold weather feels colder. Yesterday was in the mid-50s, which in dry New England autumn would be pleasantly brisk, but the relative humidity was somewhere in the 90s and the chill went right through to th...

Like maybe no votes for employees of any level of government. I assume this would include active-duty military? Sure. I don't see why not.
