That's distasteful! Wait... no. That's regrettable.

Well... I thought it was funny.

I'm pretty sure Kxmode is making a "Silence of the Lambs" joke - (I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti).


A census taker came to my door today to test me. I was also eating snack foods and ate lunch later on.

Okay, whatever you say. https://youtu.be/M1b2v_Lls3A

WarPig's non-scientific musings of the day:

I know that global warming is real and that it has happened fast, but I'm telling you, the reverse, global cooling, could happen really fast. Today it was supposed to be 88 degrees, but since the sun here is hidden behind all the wildfire smoke, we had a high of 72 and it's been like that since Friday. A couple big volcanoes or a small meteor strike could make global warming a not-so-fond memory.

They shouldn't be coming to your door unless you didn't comply with the survey already. Sure it wasn't some kind of scam or attempt at identity theft?

My car has a manual also (2016 Miata) - another one of the perks is that most young thieves won't steal it since they can't drive it.

Yeah, Seaver always seemed to be such a class act. R.I.P. Tom.

I'll tell you what though, that Lewy body dementia is the fucking worst. My grandmother had it, and it was more like she had full-blown psychosis than what I imagined dementia would be like. She heard and saw things constantly that were as real to her as anything can be (and she was deaf). And the worst thing is that they were almost always horrible, nightmare things. She moved in with my mom and on many nights Grandma would end up running around the apartment screaming about something. A reoccurring story was about a doctor who was working his way down the hospital halls, cutting off all the women's breasts. That was just one story I remember, they were always pretty bad. Mom was also concerned about getting kicked out of the apartment because of the screaming. Finally she used one of Grandma's delusions she had about a poor family who she imagined living in the attic. Grandma made friends with one of the imaginary little boys and would tell us all about the poor little guy. Anyway, Mom told her that the screaming was scaring the little kids and since Grandma loved kids so much, it kind of worked.

Well, I didn't mean to turn Mr. Seaver's death into a story about myself, it's just when I hear the term "lewy body dementia", it brings back some strong memories.

Can't you order a freezer from Amazon?

Yeah probably, (although it is kind of funny that the one you linked to is out of stock) but I do kind of need something that can take the heat of my garage, which is why I had my heart set on that GE freezer. I guess I could get a really small one and try to fit it next to the washing machine... that's a thought. It's just one of those things that I never thought of as being really hard to find, but it does make sense - 2020 sense at least.

We had a bit of a problem storing some of our food to start with, and with the additional stockpiling the pandemic lockdown inspired, this had become a bit of a crisis.

I've been grocery shopping for my mom for the last few months, which means freezer space has been at a premium, so I thought I'd buy a small chest freezer to stick in the garage - yeah, good luck with that. GE has a line of "Garage Rated" freezers that are supposed to handle extreme temps, which is what I need, but as far as I can see, you can't even order one right now, and I started looking in May.

Even though my garage is attached and insulated, it's 95F in there right now, and the temperature is supposed to hit 110F here on Thursday (outside, hopefully not in my garage).

As for the socializing, if this continues into the NFL season (which seems likely) I'm really going to miss my Sunday noon to six NFL watch parties. Which has been a standard with several friends for approaching two decades now...

Yeah, well, first off, I just hope there is an NFL season this year. For me, the last couple years my dad has come over to watch Seahawk games with me. We'll watch the game, have a Crown & Coke, split a pizza, and then shoot some pool. Great times! Realistically though, there may not be many more years of that left and I hope we don't have to sit one out. Dad will probably still want to come over, and I don't know if I'll have the heart to tell him no. It's tough.

My dad died at 93. I don’t see what’s great about living that long. Three of his wives were dead, one son was dead and most of his friends were dead. It ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Exactly.

Chicken is the most fattening and estrogenic of the meats. Fish is full of antiobiotics, chemical pollutants and mercury. Also we don't even have an enzyme to digest uric acid, so hello kidney stones and gout.

Your health appears to be fine, but you can't see your arteries (which would have started getting fatty streaks in them even while you were in the womb if your mother ate meat/dairy/eggs - this is what studies show). You can't see that your kidneys are hyper-filtrating from the animal proteins which are more acidic than plant protein. You can't see the inflammation in your entire body (well you sorta can if you stop eating meat, your face loses puffiness within days). You can't see the pre-cancerous polyps or the diverticulitis in your colon. You can't see your enlarged prostate. etc etc etc. You don't know you have these issues until you get some symptoms, by then these issues are really serious.

Well, my dad is 80 and we pretty much eat the same types of food, and he's doing great. Of course you could be right, I might have cancer right now or drop dead tomorrow. My question to you is, how long do think you'll live, 90? 100? I don't know if I even want that, which is easy for me to say now I guess. You seem almost obsessed with not dying, which is fine, there are much worse things to obsess about. I do appreciate the concern though - honestly, I don't mean that in a sarcastic way because I do think you're sincere about this.

I think it's hard to go from 100 mph to full stop for a lot of people and that's why retirement can take a while with some folks. My ma went kind of sideways for about 2 years after retirement before she settled into it.

My dad retired at 54 and loved every minute of it. He was, and still is, my hero. He's now 80, and still plays tennis and golf. But he's way more social than I am. Plus he's married, has kids, grandkids, etc., all of which I don't. I'm very happy living by myself - I like people, but wouldn't want to live with one. Work forces me to be social, which I do need, and I'm starting to realize that if I'm not forced to be around people, I'll just stay home without thinking twice about it - which would probably be bad for weeks, months, or years at a time.

I personally retired at 54, four years ago. My cholesterol is fine, I am on no medications, I enjoy an occasional beer (and sometimes bacon). I am however overweight, it is something I am working on(again). My happiness is *meh* but then what can you expect from a professional curmudgeon?

I'm not sure Tact, but we may be twins. Except for the retired part, you just pretty much described me to a tee - exact same age and everything. Weight wise, I could be better (5'-10", 180lbs, should be 165) but not too bad. I definitely need to eat better and get (much) more exercise, but there's no way I'd ever give up eating meat. It's mostly chicken and fish, but so far my health has been fine.

It used to be my main goal in life was saving up for retirement, and I've done okay in the saving part, but as I get close I'm starting to realize that I may need to keep working, at least some, to keep sane. I'm afraid I'd go full hermit without some kind of structure. It'll come down to how much I'm still enjoying my job.

I have the Blue's News logo tattooed over my face, with the sunglasses tattooed over my eyes (naturally). I thought it would look super cool.


I was right.

I agree. They should go with something unexpected. I seriously doubt they will. I believe there has already been a leak suggesting they want something which could be interpreted as either military forces or warring natives. But hey .. who knows?

Washington Lobbyists?
Washington Filibusters?
Considering the way they've been playing the last few years, my vote would be for the Washington Generals*.

So, $114K for a 1985 video game... wow.

Holy hell, way to go to whoever sold the thing. I wonder if the buyer thinks it's a good investment or if he just wanted the game that bad.

Not that it really has anything to do with anything, but the thought that first popped into my head was that in 1989 I bought a house for $33K and lived there for 28 years. I guess the value of stuff, or the perceived value of stuff, is sometimes pretty strange.

Those poor dogs look terrified. I wonder how many beatings they've had to endure so that woman could get her 15 minutes of fame?

So you're accusing some random stranger of animal cruelty because her dog can do a cute trick? Okay.

Jesus Blue, how can post such things! I thought you liked dogs.

I thought the dogs looked terrified of not getting a treat (like every dog).

They had me wait in the car until they were ready for me to avoid patients clustered in the waiting room. They took my temperature on the way in, had air filters in every room, and even had me gargle with anti-viral mouthwash. The thing I hate most about going to the doctor is feeling like I'm going to get sick from the other patients, but this alleviated such concerns to an extreme degree.

Doctor / hospital waiting rooms should be optional from now on. Check in via text, "I'm here, waiting in the parking lot" - maybe they send you a form that's configured so you can fill it in on your phone if necessary, and then they let you know when to walk in. It's like you said, whether it's Covid19 or the flu, waiting rooms are scary.
