Out of the Blue

I've recently started to experience a nagging pain just above the wrist along the ulna of my right arm. This is my mouse-hand, and since I work and play on the computer so much the obvious concern is some sort of repetitive stress injury. I've known a couple of sufferers, including former id Software programmer John Cash, and through their experiences I can appreciate just how serious RSIs can be. But this has only just started for me, so I've only consulted with Dr. Google thus far. The good news is this doesn't sound like Carpal tunnel syndrome or ulnar tunnel syndrome, at least as far as I can tell. I have suffered on occasion from cubital tunnel syndrome, which went away when I stopped leaning on my elbow when reclining, but this doesn't seem the same as that either. Before we moved I had some arm pain from working in a makeshift environment, and this seems similar to that, so I have adjusted the armrests on my chair to make my forearm more level, and this seems to provide some immediate relief, so I'm hopeful this will take care of it. No one wants an RSI, so I will monitor this and will not put off seeing a doctor if it persists, as from what I read, early diagnosis and treatment is important in such cases.

Didn't read the article?

"Remarkably, there were absolutely no differences in cognition or any of the brain parameters between the different sleep duration groups. Thus, sleeping six or even five hours each night was not associated with impaired cognition or any negative effects on the brain."

Not sleeping 8 hours per night is highly correlated to early onset Alzheimer disease. It's also the equivalent of being intoxicated. So it's definitely not a healthy habit.

Oh hells yeah. I may be able to pull off 4-6 hours sleep for one day but any more than that and I'm just walking around going 'Duh.' I'm a mess without my 8-10 hours of sleep. I've loved sleeping in since I was a kid.

Follow-up: Anti-vaxxers celebrate victory in NJ as pro-vaccine bill falls apart.

Just a couple months ago, my cousin's child (4 year old) became ill, and it dramatically accelerated. In less than the week, the whole family was transferred to an urban hospital, where they were quarantined for days with the sick child, because no one knew what they were dealing with. He survived the nearly fatal, and rare flu with complications, but the hope is that his youth will conquer any long-term effects.

He was vaccinated, maybe a week or two, just before showing symptoms.

No one in my family is up in arms, or suddenly supporting anti-vax... but having seen the emotional toll, and the easy connection of "cause and effect", I can understand the perspective of those that have suffered or lost children in such circumstances.

Did the doctors do a culture and compare it to the vaccine?

There are a couple samples that have been sent internationally for further analysis; I believe the results are expected in 3-6 months (now 1-4). I'm not sure how related to the vaccination the tests are.

Slate SJW hates The Joker? Shocker. Rolleyes

QFT....

Was it last year that Slate was all about Black Panther winning best picture? A well made but ultimately completely by the numbers superhero action movie. Yet Joker, which actually pushes the genre and does it well, is a "dumb movie." And we all know why these progressive media outlets don't like it, because it's about a white guy struggling in society and then taking his revenge. If the Joker had just checked his privilege then Slate would be all over it.


Why are people so shocked about a farmer being a sociopathic conman? They exist in every walk of life. The only thing that article really illustrates is how inept the government is that the guy got away with his con for a decade and for that much money.

I watched "Joker" over the weekend for the first time and I enjoyed it far more than I thought I would. I actually found it to be quite enjoyable.

The Lighthouse is in my queue to watch as I really like slow burn horror movies.

Yep. I'd like to watch both, but I'll be damned if I give more money to CBS to do it. They already get money from me via my Dish TV account.

Taskmaster, new to the Marvel cinema scene, sure. Established cool character for decades in the comics though.

Hopefully he isn't killed off/wasted utterly in this film; also his power set presents a serious problem for the movie version of Black Widow, not the best choice.

/end nerd rant.
