Seems to me that for a 27" you need 1440. Heck my 24"s are 1200...

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.

8-8 for me. Sucks that we can't even look at the weekly results for the league.

Well, actually... I've only missed five so far and have Denver for tonight's game. Don't worry though, I'll probably miss twelve games next week to make up for it.
Nice job, WarPig.

I think I'll end up at 9-7 from last week, it was a pretty rough week.
That will be a good week I suspect, possibly good enough to lead for the week.

The Giants losing to Cam Newton having a good day I can understand. Losing 38-0, is much more than just that. My Cowboys have managed to get to a 2-1 division lead, but I don't think they look particularly good. Andy Reid apparently doing a fantastic job in KC.

Eight wrong for me so far, however on all but one of those the majority of picks were also wrong. So.. it will be interesting to see if anyone actually managed a good week.

I'm done picking the fucking Eagles. Fuck Chip Kelly, Fuck Michael Vick, Fuck Philadelphia
Cutter wrote on Sep 20, 2013, 13:21:
I kinda thought Philly might be due but I wasn't going to buck the odds and KC looks pretty hot so I picked them instead. This is going to be a grueling weekend for football methinks.
I thought the game was a toss up -- and it pretty much was, Philly could have won the game. In the end I gave more weight to the "home" advantage than to KC's "momentum." Oh well...

Another Thursday NFL game where the losing team could have easily won the game. This time my pick for our BTI league was on the wrong side, *sigh*.
