I'm looking forward to "Two Cups and One Blue" on the upside and tales about the wonders, benefits, and pitfalls of a vegan diet in the future, too. Lol. All kidding aside, mate, best wishes. Also, Isn't it contagious with saliva and body fluids? Better check your fam. and Gunner 2.

From the CDC:

There is no evidence that Lyme disease is transmitted from person-to-person. For example, a person cannot get infected from touching, kissing, or having sex with a person who has Lyme disease.

Nobody's Exactly Sure How Much A Kilogram Is Right Now. Actually my uncle's work.

Wait, your uncle is a cocaine smuggler?


Haha, no, he works at NIST in "Fundamental Physical Constants," and has been deeply embroiled in the argument over how to define the kilo for years now. He stands steadfastly against the idea of measuring everything against a hunk of platinum in Paris.

I'm not sure if its just the metal arm/brace itself but there are some Ebay sellers with arms and stuff if you decide to fix it. When mine gets to that point I will probably pick up a used chair to gut for parts, I see them around here for $200-300. Anyways good luck and let us know how it goes.

I just never think of times like this as the perfect role for eBay.
I just ordered a hardened replacement for the bolt that broke.

I should have bought the replacement for the whole height wheel mechanism, because now I remember that my old one was slipping. I guess I can still consider getting that down the road.

New Aeron chair is $939 on Amazon.
The current crop of "ergonomic" racing gaming chairs are $200-$500.
My eBay bolt was $9.99.

Thanks Verno!

Missed the last page about 16 years. I'm surprised it didn't go longer but oh well, that's a pretty respectable lifespan.

Well especially given its level of use. It's nothing to be proud of, but I'm sure this thing had my ass in it for more than 12 hours for more than half the days of its life.

I replaced the cracked arm pads a couple of years ago, but I am so far having trouble finding a replacement arm mechanism. Still not sure a replacement would work, but if they can't be found, I guess it's moot.

The Aerons have a super long or life time warranty, don't they? I got mine from my dad after he retired and no longer needed two. Mine is the C (largest) size, of course. It definitely helps with my back and I can tell the difference if I sit in a regular chair for only a few days to a week. A healthier back is worth the money.

I was surprised to see how long their warranty is, which is 12 years. Unfortunately, as I mentioned, this chair is now over 16 years old.

#20? Damn. Just checked, I'm Rank #13'289 and I thought my D.va was pretty sick, my best game is with her at 33 elims, kill streak of 27 and 19'500 damage done.

61 elims, 29 last hits, 29 kill streak, 48 objective kills, and 31,966 damage are my tops so far with D.Va

Daaaaamn!

Forget pi day, today is apparently Tau Day,

Doesn't have quite the same ring...

(Not to seem nosey, but since you mentioned a second trip) Did you get any more results back?

Nothing came back yet (just saw him Friday afternoon). I mostly feel better, except for insane pains in my joints. And those are not too bad today, but I needed Advil yesterday for my shoulders.

There isn't any information I can find that makes this make any sense.

Took longer then expected but I am officially a High School Graduate.

Graduation gifts should be limited to Steam Gift Cards, Alcohol delivered to my door, and a full body massage by Chris Evans (Captain America suit is optional, but must bring the shield).

Special thanks to Batz for all his help, support, and someone I could aspire to be like, especially after this last year.

Congrats! That's completely awesome.

And all Blue's censorship in the world won't change that.

Break the rules and suffer the consequences. You in effect censor yourself when you post the way you did (and often do).

It's either you want to get your posts deleted so you can play victim, or you are actually unable to comprehend where you are going wrong. Either way it's on you, and I can't promise to keep ignoring the anger it inspires in me to be accused of censorship, especially from someone who has benefited from so much tolerance.

A few beers? Ha!
Pre 9-11, I used to sneak a few oil cans into Shea Stadium in my backpack every time I went to a game and it was glorious. That'll never happen again.

We went to a banner day doubleheader at Shea against the Cubs a million years ago and brought in a case of beer cans in a bag. Like you say, bygone times.

We don't have substitutes for smartphones.

We don't need any, we already all have smartphones, which is why their growth is falling off. For the smartphone industry to sustain the way it's operated in the past we'd need to find an undiscovered continent/planet of new potential customers.

Do you give the Gunnar-man a trick treatment each spring? You know the stuff you drop on the back of their neck?

He wears a prescription flea collar my vet swears by as being better than those drops. I'm not wild about an insecticide collar, but it seems preferable to infusing the dog's entire skin with insecticide. But maybe I just think to much about these things.

Definitely a good idea to see a doctor. As Brian mentioned, you should check for bull's eye (erythema migrans) rash which is present in 70-80% of cases (ie most but not all). Here are the symptoms (from the CDC website):

http://www.cdc.gov/lyme/signs_symptoms/

Then again, it might just be a cold, but definitely best to check.

Good luck!

Yeah, I see no rash, but I have had the fever, chills, headache, fatigue, and muscle and joint aches. Probably nothing, but better safe than sorry.

Might want to check for any red bulls eyes on your body and perhaps get a test for Lyme Disease. Your symptoms are typical and you can never be too careful in this part of the country. Good luck!

That seems like a very relevant point. I am going to call the doctor tomorrow.
