If in 867 years we have not yet progressed sufficiently to deal with an asteroid then as a race we deserve the consequences of that inaction
I hope I'm here to find out!

I don't know, I would have no problem spending 5 grand on something I really believe in. I just don't really believe in videogames
Right, there are lots of things I might spend $5k on, but would you spend $5k for an evening on the town?

One asshat on the Egosoft forums was proud to announce that he went in at the $5000 tier. When I remarked that maybe he should have given that to charity or something, he accused me of 'not knowing how to make money' and that 5K was barely a night on the town.
He was probably just a troll. There are people like that (spending 5k on a night out) but not many of them, and even fewer who frequent internet gaming forums. I only wish I was one of them.

Dogs are much better than people.
I like dogs generally, but I've never had an issue with my human friends urinating or defecating on the floor or chewing on furniture... so maybe better in some ways, definitely not better in others.

Despite the loss of 50% of their pass rush, Rodgers is starting to hit his stride and the Packers live and die with Rodgers and his O-Line not the defense.
Pfft. Not enough to my liking, his paltry single TD left me with a fantasy loss. All I needed out of him was 2 TDs and I didn't get it.

Yeah, I finished 7-7 for the week and as I indicated in another topic I changed three picks at the last minute Sunday morning that would have been wins if I hadn't changed them. *sigh*

*sigh* That Jets win knocked me out of my Last Man Standing league. Just another reason for me to not like New York teams.

Woot! 3000th post.

*ugh* I initially had picked CIN, IND, and BAL in our league and talked myself out of all three. Might have to "go with my gut" more...

Speaking of pain, starting to get carpel tunnel in my left hand.
I'm so surprised I haven't had issues with carpel -- with 30+ years of keyboarding one thing or another. Here's hoping you have good luck with your issue and that I continue with my good luck.

Putting in an offline mode would be a step in the right direction, but this game has so many serious issues it has a long road to qualifying for a purchase from me.

Scare tactics are fun.
Yeah, that's me -- trying to unreasonably scare people. Stop people from using acetaminophen and get them using the pain killer I make. Oh, I guess I better invent that soon...

Never take more than the recommended dosage of acetaminophen. EVER.

That holds true for most medicines, to be honest. Quite a few of them are actually toxic to your body.
That is certainly accurate. But the small amount over the recommended dose being able to cause major problems with an over the counter drug that the vast majority of people believe is "safe". Actually, the more concerning thing was the children and infant versions. It turns out that the infant version is for non-intuitive reasons more concentrated than the children's version. The idea being it's so difficult to get an infant to swallow the drug, you don't want to have to make them swallow a lot to be effective. And this fact is unknown by most people including many doctors. The dosage instructions for both are "See your doctor."

No one is saying the drug needs to be pulled. But more stringent dosing instructions need to be put on all versions of the medication.

Keep going Alamar, you are close to my record. I went 25 years between doctor visits (not counting dentist and eye doctors).

...so I think I can stop taking the painkillers already ...
On this subject anyone who ever uses acetaminophen would be advised to catch the recent episode of This American Life on the drug. For those those not willing to listen to the hour long program, the short version:

Never take more than the recommended dosage of acetaminophen. EVER.

It's a dice roll. The odds are if you did, nothing bad would happen. But a small percentage of people will have serious problems, possibly even a healthy person. Here's a link to the show.
