Another biggie is cell phone yappers having private conversations in public places.

oh ya. A friend and I were out for lunch and the lady next to us was having a loud phone conversation so my friend begins to chime in. "i wouldn't take that" " I'd tell him to screw off" etc.  the woman pauses her conversation , looks at him and say's "excuse me, this is a private conversation, do you mind?"  his reply was "Exactly! so why don;t you have it in private instead of sitting next to me while I'm trying to eat"   she got up and left.....

I learned that Nigel Farage was a Nazi when he was younger. Actually. I never knew this before.

Quite amusingly, I needed to look up the definition!  8)

Knee follow up:


-Saw the surgeon on Monday.  He referred me for PT after bending and twisting the knee a bit. Added naproxen to the daily regimen 2x a day for inflammation.


-Saw the physical terrorist today. She remembered me from my 2008 rotator cup injury.  After the evaluation and looking at the doctor’s notes on the surgery, all she asked was why wasn’t I sporting metal? The degradation was enough to justify it. 
An
yways, pain is localized to the medial cruciate ligament because inflammation. Four weeks of therapy scheduled to rebuild strength and stability. She stuck some sort of special Kinesio athletic tape on and that seems to help a bit.  Ice all morning after and it's fine for now.  I work a four hour late shift tonight at my request.  Repeat all tomorrow.  PT, cut grass, work.

Today I learned that fresh water stingrays are a thing. I truly had no idea. Cool.

I also learned that today. Just now. Who knew that was a thing? Not I.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

Good luck.

Did Naproxen for a while. It's prescription-strength Alieve. Now I just do 2 extra-strength otc Alieve and am prescribed Tramadol for my knee and neck... which I use rarely (last refill is still about half full from being filled two years ago). I have finally dialed in a dose that doesn't keep me up all night (half a tab when needed). My reaction to opioids is to become hyper. My stay after neck fusion had be on the morphine drip. I was awake all night and quite the Chatty Kathy.

I stay away from opioids myself, they make me nauseous. When I got a few feet of my colon removed they had me on a morphine drip for a few days but that was really painful so justified I guess.

My days of eating 4 or 5 Vicodin's with a couple of shots of whiskey are long gone I'm afraid.

getting old sucks.... but, I guess it beats the alternative.
the above are merely the ramblings of a hamfisted fuckwit who has broken too many helmets.
