  1. I don’t cuss, so this is really extreme: fuck them. If they think you’re the bad guy, then they either innocently don’t know what’s going on or they’re molester protecting pieces of shit and you’re better off without them. This is black and white, good and evil stuff. And if they want to choose to be evil, that’s not on you.

  3. That reminded me...my grandma was a competitive roller skater dancer and a roller derby girl. That's her in the middle. My grandfather (whom I have met only a handful of times at funerals when I was a kid) is in the front.

  6. Keep some of the lore, yes, but don't be beholden to it, either. The amount of people crying about the Snake Eyes movie... if you don't like the new origin, fine, I didn't really either. But some couldn't even handle the idea some were tossing around of updating SE to being an Iraq/Afghanistan vet instead of Vietnam. People have a really creepy hardon for THE SOURCE MATERIAL of a lot of properties that they can't handle the slightest deviation. What's the point of wanting ONLY the exact same story over and over? Unrelated I'm going to this show in Pasadena in two weeks with my kids. It's

  8. Situations change. Doctors were super pissed at me for keeping my mom alive after her TBI/massive stroke/whatever the hell happened to her. But I was following her orders as MPOA. But once I saw she no longer remembered who I was or basically anything, I signed DNR orders. These things are often progressive and you have no way of knowing how someone will recover. My mom had been in the same situation at least twice and recovered fully. Her lungs recovered fully but her brain did not. Finding someone collapsed you almost never know how the dice will fall, so you react on instinct. If you had be

  10. Wally runs a fun, dank meme and chat group which is probably the only good thing other than the Marketplace on Facebook. Even that wasn’t enough to keep me tho. I deleted like everyone except my immediate fam and my Nightly / Wally’s group friends, thinking I could just keep going on the Book that way, but I just couldn’t. The account is active but that is just for my kids and wife really to read all the stories I recited about them on my wall. But anyway, Wally’s group is basically Lando and this should make everyone laugh and feel old but my oldest son is an admin in that group. See wha

  12. I saw enough backs of hands that it actually started to be the norm in my head. At times it got too normal and it wasn’t hot— until the naked girl with the margarita pitcher comes over and jiggles on your lap, fills your cup, and kisses your girlfriend.

  14. Not just fear-mongering. They understand that most Americans operate on sound bytes, and Democrats mostly won't accept that, and have fallen behind because of it. That and they just roll over and let Republicans take over any discussion.

  17. Thanks all. I am giving the benefit of the doubt that they don't know all the details. But still, it really sucks. I have told some members of my family some of the story early on, but I doubt they know the full extent. My mom doesn't really know, either. My grandma was a pretty awesome human being. 30 year-old single mom with five kids without a high school education in 1970 is a tough spot to be in. Whenever I think I have it rough at work, she worked at an industrial bakery, Taystee Bread in North Kansas City, Missouri. She stood in insane heat all day on an assembly line

  20. 6 week post op was today, and I’m doing very well! I don’t need any more imaging, I can start PT (thank GOD, dieting is not working and I keep getting bigger), and as long as I don’t spend more than an hour in the water and it’s not hot water I can submerge my incisions (there is one tiny scab left, ugh). So I went to the beach right after my appointment.

  21. I liked and unliked and reminded what Fozzie said multiple times because he nailed it. You can grieve for your grandmother in your own private way with your wife and kids and that is just as legit, if not more, than going to see those ***holes.

  22. Giant hugs on losing your own Nan. Nevermind your family. Have a small service to remember your grandmother. Something like that helps you move through some stages of grief. You can do it in your own home or drive out to Kansas City and hold it in a park or someplace your Nan loved to remember her. We should cherish our good memories. When Mom passed we had a small remembrance ceremony where we said the rosary and just remembered the best things about my Mom.

  24. I mean, she sounds like a legend so.. I don't think you have anything to worry about. And that's the takeaway from this thread: Tank did stuff and it was hot wound up with a rad girlfriend. If I weren't married Id be jealous.

  25. Maybe he can! He could be an Olympian. Seriously, the belief that anything is possible is the best part of childhood. My wife loves the Olympics, and I mostly don’t care. But I enjoy watching it when I do, I just don’t care enough to make it a priority.

  26. That would track given that they hated each other. At this pointing knowing only members can read stuff here I’m pretty sure this is a safe space… right? Also, not that he deserved it, but Rock had a bit of history being inappropriate toward women. There’s nothing in here KP would read that comes off bad. If anything it tracks me falling in love with her… but she might not like me giving every detail about her (our?) lifestyle hahaha. I’d be grounded for a minute, but she wouldn’t leave me. She’s reasonable.

  27. I don’t think you have anything to fear from anyone who posts here. But there is a legitimate danger from whoever screwed Rock. If you want to have this thread edited or hidden, I’m willing to do so.

  30. Well, in recent years, his quality of life has declined. He is 73. Physically speaking, he should be in an assisted living community, that has medical staff. He spends most days watching TV, as he lives alone at his home, with me as his primary care giver. I live a mile away and check on him in person 3 times a week, and call him almost every day. My Dad cannot drive anymore, so my brother and I take turns shopping for him, or doing things around the house, etc. It is not an ideal situation, but the best we can get him to agree to, because he is stubborn and independent.

  33. I am convinced that we are seeing the erosion of Western-style democracy. The irony is that the US and allies have had a philosophy of "exporting" democracy (sometimes at gun point), with the idea that we could topple China and Russia (and other dictatorships), yet what is really happening is the West is becoming more like dictatorships.

  34. The edibles and Rogaine page has taken a swerve into weight loss so I thought to create this. A few people have seemed interested in ordering plenity so I thought to start this as a motivational thread for myself. I am very self-conscious about my weight and hate people knowing that I have these issues. So what better then a bunch of randoms on the internet to be vulnurable with? Sooo....to be totally vulnerable I am 5'11'' and based on the day, weigh in at between 205-210. I don't necessarily have a terrible diet, I am just always hungry.

  36. That is exactly what happened with my mom. Hospice only comes out as needed but is actually only scheduled a couple of times a week. My brother was pissed because he had to actually do some work when mom came home. She died the next day. Banner is generally good but after my experiences with my Mom and Nan I definitely think the US has a long way to go to improve medical care.

  38. Yeah, I know I would never forgive myself if I was too late. I was just saying the thought crossed my mind late at night. But I love my dad, and even though he is in hospice, I still want him to recover as best he can. Changing gears a bit, one thing I think people don't realize is hospice in the home is a lot of work for the family. A lot of people assume hospice is there all the time and taking care of the needs of the patient. Not so. The hospice we have through Banner only has a nurse out 2 days a week, for an hour or so at a time. On call does exist 8am-5PM, with a 1 800 numb

  41. Ditto every word of this. I know things with family can get muddled and complex, but to us here on the outside looking in, it's painfully black and white. I'm so sorry about your grandma though. Was she the last person holding you to that side of the family?

  42. When I found my Dad 2 weeks ago, I was glad I was there to save his life. But, last night as I was laying sleepless last night worrying about him, I confess I have had thoughts that if I had known he would refuse treatment and go on hospice, I wondered if it would have been better if I was too late. I don't want anything bad to happen to my Dad, and I feel like a total asshole for even entertaining the thought, but I wonder if it had been more merciful.

  43. About 6 years ago, right around the time my oldest daughter was born or a little before, I got rid of Facebook. I had really good reasons for doing it, and for the most part I’m really glad I’m not on. I don’t miss the pettiness, the stupidity, and I’m SUPER glad I missed almost all of Trump on social media. The one downside is that it cut all of my old friends out of my life, and taking a break from everyone socially has made me realize that I still care more for some of those people than the people currently in my life. Now, some of them I could contact through other means - but I’ve sw

  46. The bigger problem is so much of the general public seem to like that boot on the throat, as long as its everyone else's throats. I'm not sure about over there but the Republicans here have much better messaging and are able to convince millions of voters that their way is best. It's terrifying.

  47. Was this a nudist thing or a swingers club? The closest experience I've had is having to take prison showers in a high school gym with zero partitions while doing Ragnar a few weeks ago. My teammates definitely hesitated, I said screw it and stripped and told them to pretend it was the fancy Korean ladies only spa. I just share this because the next 12 hours had a lot of jokes about prison showers.

  49. Well, so far, the new dosages and new med is working. I don't have those dark episodes of depression, like I had a couple weeks ago. I am starting to feel back to normal, or what should be normal. I actually feel myself laughing more, too, which has to be a good sign. i also have been giving CBD hard candy a try, too. Just being able to share my experience here makes me feel better too, so thank you guys for bending an ear.
