  1. On Monday, I foolishly believed that changing the faucet in my kid's bathroom was going to be a simple affair. It was not. The old valve bodies were so rusted and rotted, they fought me every step of the way. 8 hours later, I was done, but not after making several trips to home depot for tools I didn't need or want, and didn't work anyways. The first valve body gave in when I gave it a turn with a pipe wrench. The top nut just disintegrated and it fell through. The cold valve body was another story completely. That motherfucker. Banging, cranking, twisting, turning, f

  3. After a week or so on Ashwagandha, I can confirm this same effect....took me a while to figure it out but I was experiencing this low level of background anxiety that I couldn't connect to anything and discontinuing seems to have resolved it.

  4. Wow. Quite a week. After the car accident, and the internet shit, and the kid with the broken toe (got to watch a PA reduce the fracture yesterday-the kid deserved it, lol), and the kid with the embarrassing pooper issues we're trying to resolve, and work shit, I kinda gave up on thursday and friday. The weather is stupid-hot (90-95 for the last week) for October, and I'm just about done with it all. Not much working out, but trying to stay "active enough". I'll pick up more when the temp comes down to "normal" hot October. My boy Adam will hopefully be d

    Also, I've lost not really a single pound since I dipped under 300. Summer was rough, physically and emotionally stressful, but I'm through that, now. I still haven't been able to prioritize exercise and eating since late August. That's frustrating, and it's 100% mental. Good news: no weight re-gain. I've started my ritalin treatment again, and I'm going to switch my eating up to maybe ease up on the mental frustrating part of it (the strict keto and time-restricted aspects of it). I don't know what else I can really do. I've tried to get an idea of what

  8. Yep, though, an imperfect study...you could have just confirmed (y)our biases. I've tried ashwagandha several times, always with the same result. In fact, virtually *all* ayurveda do something negative to me. I find them to be very potent and usually with side effects.

  12. You are putting a lot of effort to discuss a topic with an endgame that I certainly cannot see nor appreciate. You just compared wearing masks to debridement surgery. How are these two things even comparable? One comes at absolutely no cost at all - what, $3 for a pack of 5 masks maybe? There's no downside to wearing a mask. It doesn't affect your health. It certainly doesn't impact anaerobic alactic activities at all judging by the number of world records being set right now in powerlifting. Debridement surgery permanently alters fundamental in your body central to primary, daily

  13. This is about risk management. The Swiss Cheese Model is often used in aviation. For an accident to happen, all the holes in the barriers have to align. Conversely. The more barriers you have, the better the outcome. When talking about masks the context is important.
