Re: Lets talk about the opioid crisis

Opioid painkillers stimulate receptors in the brain and elsewhere to produce a powerful pain-numbing effect. They also lessen anxiety and depression—two common side-effects of intense pain. The sensation they induce is often described as euphoria. Some, such as morphine, are made from the opium pop...

Re: Lets talk about the opioid crisis

Over-prescribing is an enormous part of the problem in my opinion. I recently had my tonsils out and discussed with my doctor at length about NOT wanting opioids (for a variety of issues but mostly because they make me feel fucking disgusting) only to be told my only option for take home medication ...

Re: Wash Post tries to lull us about Deep State

Fuck, it's been said before, but I wish there was a super competent deep state secret government pulling the strings. This is what people don't get about the government and public policy in general - it's fucking complicated and hard to get it right. There's no deep-state trying to foment a quiet c...

The Expanse - season 1 on prime

I started watching this because I kept coming across posts on facebook and reddit going on about how good it was. I binged season 1 on prime and as it turns out facebook and reddit are right - it's good. It's based off a series of books by James S. A. Corey (that I'm going to have to read now while ...

Re: New Parent Advices

Pretty much everything with babies can be filed under "this too shall pass," but that includes the good stuff too - so watch them sleep at least once. You won't sleep for the first three months, accept this. Buy infant gas drops, use them. (h/t syaigh) Use a baby wrap. I'd be leery of "family" bed w...

Throws today 16lb shot, about 16 feet each time no matter what I did footwork wise, so THAT needs work. LWFD, single turn, 29 feet. That's an improvement I'll take. WOB. Uh.
