Re: Interesting Editorial by Tucker Carlson: Mitt Romney and America

Usually I dismiss anyone wearing a bow tie, but this was well worth a read, glad you posted it. I do not watch Fox News and have not really been exposed to Tucker Carlson, although I am aware of who he is in the broadest sense. Anyway, I bumped into this piece, but it struck me as disorientingly lev...

Re: Bullet Journaling

OK I can pass along some thoughts. I like hearing about different systems people use to organize their junk. I use a system that's remarkably similar to what you outlined, it's just what developed over time for me. The main difference is I don't use a bound pads, because it's easier to scan, shuffle...

Re: Worst Log Ever

Nerve issues? Bob L from the P&B had an impinge nerve and his left arm and hand was 70% weaker than his right, or so I remember that, he had TOS didn't he? That's something to think of, I hadn't considered. I only notice weakness in that one aspect, maybe that would give a clue to what nerve. This ...

Re: Motor moron

I think the hip bridge is the thing, the exercise is designed to force the person to use the glutes. You can do all kinds of hinge or etc. exercises that should involve the glute but a person with the dreaded gluteal amnesia will usually compensate by using hamstrings. The idea with the bridge is, w...

Re: If two of my 2017 goals are balance and strength....

I think if you do exercises that build the muscles that keep you upright that's a start, the strength is necessary but not sufficient. Strong core, lower legs, feets, etc. I also think carrying less weight helps. You occasionally see a young fat guy that can really move, but not old ones. The nervou...

Re: Heartburn & stomach acid

I never got heartburn the first few decades of my sweet short life, no matter what I shoveled down. Then all of a sudden it was happening every time I had a big lunch, that is to say daily. I adjusted by having more reasonable lunch which was a good thing anyways. But if I had a big lunch, boom, hea...

With few exceptions people seem to like it more than 8 but less than 7.

I think after offering this free upgrade Microsoft will not support 7 as long as they did ...

Re: Anybody following VW's fuck up?

For decades car makers have gamed the mileage tests in a less blatant way. Cars are designed / tuned for good mileage on the EPA tests, which are the only mileage stats you can put in an ad, often at the expense of real world mileage. In reality nobody drives 55 mph like the test, so real mileage d...
