Hey pole dancer I've got a pole that you can workout on right HEERE.
Are you referring to your "As you know, I'm a big fan of the govt" thread from Feb, 1915? I just searched it up and went through it; there were neither mention of a book, nor any replies from me. I remember the thread, but must have felt I had nothing to add---or lampoon effectively...yo gregg, were you around when we were talking about the smothers bros book a couple years ago?
After forming a surf band and playing frat parties the last two years of high school ('63-4), I joined one of my sister's babysitting employers and worked in the lounge of a bowling alley at age eighteen. (Because there was a restaurant, I was allowed to be under 21 as long as I took my breaks out in the all-ages area) The nineteenth-b-day-party hangover hadn't cleared when I got drafted and spent two years in the Army, Mar 1 '66 - Feb 28 '68. When I got back, all of my musician pals had turned either cowboy or hippie, and except for the drugs aspect, (just booze for me, thanks!) I chose the latter. Sang a lot of Steppenwolf, Deep Purple and Creedence Clearwater........ i was just curious if you had anything particular to add about the smothers....have you been a professional musician most of your life?
I know the feeling...but not from joint problems; sometime around '88 - '90 or so, I noticed that my playing had hit a wall and no matter how much I practiced, I was stagnating (getting bored hearing myself) Buying a new Charvel ST Custom in '91 didn't help, and when the boss cut too many corners and lost a lot of longtime repeat customers (and fell behind with payroll) two years later, I decided to hang up the twang thang and turn my automotive repair hobby into a freelance occupation.I'm still rather salty about not being able to play guitar anymore (joint pain issues).
I told myself the same thing in July of '77 when I saw it in the local music store...but it was cute, playable, had good tonation and a pickupI had no idea hohner made guitars.
wow... that's pretty sobering. i hadn't considered that scenerio before, but i suppose it's not uncommon with creative types or people actively trying to develop their skillsets in life.In Sept '98 I had a mild stroke; the MRI showed not only the main lesion, but a half-dpzen other smaller ones. I asked how old they were, and the neurologist said there was no way to tell.
A little late in the game, but I think I know why I hit that wall...
Well, I had my chance at that, too; (Dec 10, '67) crawling toward the pajama-clad bastards, I caught an AK-47 slug under my left collarbone that went south, through lung, diaphram (breathing was in shallow gulps from that point), stomach and spleen (which was removed and discarded) before ending up in some unspecified region of intestine. It was determined that I would not recover sufficiently for return to duty before my ETS, so after about two weeks, I and a few other lucky souls spent Xmas being flown to Manila and Guam on the way to Letterman Hospital in San Francisco.pretty casual way to mention not becoming a smudge in a vietnam jungle, too.
Garlic, yeah...but Cayenne - isn't that the stuff that peels all of your eyeball paint? And statins, I've heard of but am not familiar with. Garlic is in the food group, PIZZA, which I enjoy regularly.....I remember you guys discussing nutrients, vitamins, oxidants, etc., and Arne blasted storebought pizza's use of whatever was used to make 'sausage'...true, I would like to taste some beef, but until then...... good reminder to keep eating my garlic, cayenne and statins.
What - no caption or description? Is that a people-sized structure, or a spider's view inside a Hohner Contessa?
It saddens me that some people are totally dominated and manipulated by the Main Scheme Media...
...Please watch C-SPAN for raw unfiltered information...
...I started relying on non-commercial C-SPAN over 35 years ago...
...When I speak of C-Span I am not referring to the controllers of Washington Journal or other productions. I go there online, on the TV channels for C-SPAN1, C-SPAN2, C-SPAN3 or...
I finally got Cable TV in December, having missed five consecutive L.A. Dodgers' division titles, trips to the playoffs, and the 2017 World Series (which they almost won, running out of offense in Game 7), due to their regular-season coverage being on Charter Communications / Time-Warner ('Spectrum') and their post-season being on Fox, who had stopped broadcasting over-the-air (free) unless the User had a Provider. But, enough about baseball.....my approach is more or less-- try to take in the widest reasonable gamut of news sources so as to compare and contrast stories and events.
I'll bet you don't feel that old...Are you referring to your "As you know, I'm a big fan of the govt" thread from Feb, 1915?
Actually, the fact that I've read a book is exactly what makes me smart. That's kind of what reading books is known for. The fact that you haven't read a book is exactly what makes you a fucking moron. It's kind of what not reading books is known for. You know what else makes me smart? I've never voted for a traitor to be president of the United States.Just because you read a book that no one ever heard of, or even cares to read, don't make ya smart.
Certainly no longer the friendly site of old
Even in your neck of the woods you have that reactionary Brexit thing, which UKers seem to be regretting more and more. Like it or not it's a strange, turbulent, troubling age.
> Like you don't believe I can grab "experts" who say the exact opposite.
> It's a silly argument and always falls to the side you are on.
Uh, no... that's why I make sure to mention "body of experts" when I talk about what the best professionals have to say about an issue. Pretty sure that's what I said above, too.
Because in reality, the difference between an "expert" who can spit forth whatever idea you want and the world's body of best experts on said subject is hugely significant. It's like one mouse trying to fight a battle with a pride of lions. In terms of science, reason and rationality, that is.
It's moreso in politics and popular opinion that you get these "conservative" kinds of talking points about there being "two legitimate sides" to a science or expert debate. For example, like the nonsensical idea that there are "two sides to the debate" about global climate change. Just... no. There aren't. In fact, all the world's national academies and every legit body of science I've ever heard of agrees that it's man's activities the past couple hundred years (and accelerating) that are responsible for the world heating up on average, leading to all the kinds of effects we're seeing now.
The idea that there are "two sides to the issue" is in fact a classic propaganda routine, much of which directly goes back to the same spin doctors who worked for Big Tobacco in this case. Essentially it involves large monied interests manufacturing attractive answers for consumption by people unaware of (or not interested in) how reality actually works. For example-- that smoking manufactured tobacco products is perfectly fine for one's health.
Point is, your idea that each of us can just choose the expert that conveniently fits our opinion is rubbish, just as its always been in the era of science. Science at its most most developed, documented and articulated state, that is. IMO it's also something no adult human should be deluding themselves with if they're actually interested in the reality of cause and effect.
