Sax is mos def my brother from another mother.

Either that or we were twins separated at birth....and one of us was lied to about our birth year.

Because I wouldn't be caught dead in a cowboy hat. There's something backwards about all that..

This is awesome.  I tried to do this, but got found out by people just nicking my wallet to check the driver's license details.

What's wrong with you guys? I love my birthdays. My 41st is this weekend. We ordered a keg and I'm smoking about 10 lbs of ribs for a backyard BBQ on Saturday. We even pushed the kids off to grandparent summer camp for two weeks!

If you're in NY or specifically Brooklyn, feel free to pm me for address.

My birthday's coming up. I'll probably get hammered.

PM me for Neil's address.

I cringe when people try to maneuver me into celebrating it or going somewhere on my birthday.  I have even managed to shield my birth date for months and years from close acquaintances and friends.  I have fought people who tried to get a look at my drivers license to try and suss out the date.  My own children will tell people I don't have a birthday because I never acknowledge that it is coming up.

More than one person has likened me to Ron Swanson.

Still up several hours north of Houston visiting my mother back in my hometown and good GOD does this town stink in the summer sometimes. This town sits right dead center of a chicken plant, a dog food plant and a sulfur plant and it was in the blistering triple digits today and the wind must've been blowing just right because that shit is RIPE. The whole fucking town just stinks to high Heaven. It's awful. Smothering...ugh..

Holy cripes. I've been on modest independent chicken farms and even those build up quite the distinctive odor. I can only imagine a fraction of what you're going through.

Anyway, tired shit: people speeding up to try to pass on the goddamn freeway entrance ramp, or in a lane that's about to end. For some reason Californians just cannot wait the ten seconds it would take to get onto the freeway and wait for an opening to come up in the passing lane. I'm fine if you want to go faster than I'm going, but for the love of God could you at least not go out of your way to invite car accidents?

None of you know anything about smell! Our town is home to the largest landfill in the country, 1 million tons of waste come by train to our town each year. If someone in Manhattan flushes something, it comes here.

Can you imagine a train full of this stuff coming through your town, same time every day? Two years ago we had a landslide of trash. 8 acres of trash fell. The smell unearthed from the landslide forced hundreds out of their homes for over two months.
post #8611 of 10849
When walls of trash cause large numbers of people to flee their homes, it's time to move.

For real..
post #8612 of 10849
I want to smell your smelly towns!

Urgh!

On the subject: just came back from visiting my old home town Tampere. From late June onward the city houses several large-scale festivals which usually are very well organised, save for one thing: sanitation. So from June to August the city center bathes in the warm sun and smells like human urea.

One thing I'll never miss about the town I grew up in is the smell of the Pfizer chemical plant. They were one of Groton's biggest employers, bit when the wind would blow in from the ocean at low tide, it was like falling into a big box of fabric softener compared to the reek of the street the plant was on.

​My parents have just returned from a holiday in America, and so my mother called me last night to tell me all about it. The conversation went like this (and this is only the abridged version!):

 
"We went to Las Vegas. Have you heard of it?"
"Um, yes."
"Then we went to the Grand Canyon. Have you heard of it?"
"Yes..."
"And then we went to San Francisco. Have you heard of it?"
"......"
 
(I'm really not sure whether my mother is still holding my "D" in Geography against me, or whether she missed the exciting news that America was discovered centuries ago and not last year. )
 
Anyway, she eventually got around to telling me that they had gone to the town where "Harrison Ford used to be Mayor". I'd never heard of Harrison Ford being a Mayor, and so I questioned her about this which resulted in a really stupid phone argument. 
 
"Harrison Ford. The ACTOR," she told me, in case I'd gotten him confused with the other Harrison Ford.
"Yes, but I don't think he's been the Mayor of anywhere."
"Well, he HAS. And your father and I have been there."
"I'm going to Google this when I get home, Mum."
"Yes, and then you can apologize to me."
 
Eventually she just passed the phone to my father who waited until she'd left the room before whispering "She meant Clint Eastwood".
 
Parents eh?

My Mum can't mention a sum of money without making the Pounds to CanDollar conversion, out loud, to any audience including British Canadians and her own children.

"Twenty pounds, mind you. That's like forty dollars."

*Assumes Geordie accent* "Ah knoooow, Mam. Since ah wus five. And it's moah like fifty nah."
post #8619 of 10849
I KNEW you were gonna say it was Clint Eastwood! I'd heard he was the mayor of a town in California once upon a time.
post #8620 of 10849

Sadly, it's more like thirty dollars now. :(

Yeah, I'm not sure how she got those mixed up. And she thinks I'M the idiot!

Carmel. The town features heavily in "Play Misty For Me". He became mayor later.

I'm not totally certain this is the place for this, but I just have to get it off my chest by saying that Elton John's "I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues" is certifiably, scientifically the 100% least bluesy anything ever. Fuck off with that shit, Elton.

You better believe it. I tried watching The Avengers with her once, and she just kept asking "Who are these people?" about the main characters. I told her that Stan Lee would be disappointed with her, and she said "Stanley who?". 

 

I died of disappointment right there in my seat. Just absolutely died. 

post #8626 of 10849

My dad's cool. He brought me up to like Star Wars, knows all the X-Men and Marvel characters, owns a side business for building and customizing computers, and is at QuakeCon right now, doing speeches and giveaways.

 

His flight to Dallas got delayed, so he got drunk in the airport and texted me photos of the hot waitress's butt.

post #8627 of 10849

Dad T sounds like a cool guy! Whilst he's there, can he please tell id to fuck off for making the new Quake game a hero-shooter like Overwatch?

 

Thanks!

post #8628 of 10849

I will tell him!

 

I've also told him Bethesda needs to stop fucking around with Fallout and start making another goddamned Elder Scrolls already.

post #8629 of 10849
Good grief, what is wrong with me lately?

I got up about a half hour ago, got really light headed and fell down and busted my face open on the sink. Fucking blood was everywhere. Pretty sure I fucked my foot up too. Nose has a large cut on it and definitely gonna have a black eye.

Fuck this shit.

Between the seizures and memory loss in December, then the vomiting blood a few weeks ago...and now this. I dunno what to think. It's like my body (or mind) is turning against me. It's pissing me off. Before a year ago I NEVER had any issues like this and now it just seems like one thing after another..
post #8630 of 10849
Jesus. You are seeing a doctor yes?

In really trivial tired shit, the main multiplex in Wellington. Every other cinema I've been to in NZ has several automated machines so, if you dont want overpriced snacks, it's easy to get in get your tickets and go. Not so this place. Here you have to queue like a common field hand while ditherers decide what combo of crap they want to eat.
post #8631 of 10849
Jesus Fraid, see a doctor.
post #8632 of 10849
I say this with certainty: If you are not seeking medical help and being completely open with your lifestyle, you are going to die.
post #8633 of 10849
Fraid, see a doctor, buddy.

I don't want to freak you out, but that sounds like symptoms of something that could be serious, but taken care of, if treated.
post #8634 of 10849
My guess is you may have developed some kind of a gastrointestinal condition, meaning something you're eating is killing you. Might be a good idea to ask a doctor what that something is..?
post #8635 of 10849

Go to a doctor ya dingus.

post #8636 of 10849
Isn't Analog Olmos a doctor? We should send him to force-check Fraid.
post #8637 of 10849

I'm afraid for Fraid.

post #8638 of 10849
How's your blood pressure Fraid?

I ask because I have absurdly low blood pressure and if I stand up too quickly when I'm feeling relaxed then I'll get tunnel vision and very occasionally will pass out. To put it another way, I can take 20mg of Adderall (amphetamines) and then drink a 20oz energy drink then go into my doctor's office half an hour later with a resting heart rate of 65bpm and get a 115/75 blood pressure reading. My Doctor tells me that this isn't normal.

I second Virtanen's suggestion that the cause may be diet related, perhaps an undiagnosed food allergy.
post #8639 of 10849
It could be a bunch of things. Bottom line is,

Time to see a doctor.

If doctors freak you out, get a friend to go with you. No shame in that.
post #8640 of 10849

Is cost a factor, Fraid? I know doctorin' ain't cheap down there.

post #8641 of 10849
Yeah, cost is a factor....kinda....and that I HATE going to the Dr and am stubborn as a mule when it comes to such. I'm ok. This all seemed to start with the seizures...of which I haven't had any since December. And even those kinda came outta nowhere. I don't have anything to disclose to my Dr that I've been keeping secret or anything like that. Yeah, I used to abuse some things that I shouldn't have and was a dumbass but that's way in the past. My blood pressure's fine. Always is (Tim K asked). I'm pretty sure it was dehydration in this case. And I'm not discounting the thing he said about a food allergy....although I've never had any such thing before...it's always possible. Thanks for caring, y'all. Sorry I took so long to respond..
post #8642 of 10849
Glad to hear you're not dead, Fraid, but you can't stubborn your way through everything. Get thine ass to a doctor, bucko.
post #8643 of 10849
Going tomorrow.

I actually feel really good today.

Aside from my broken face anyway lol..
post #8644 of 10849

As guys, we tend to 'walk it off' or gut through it.  To a certain degree, we can do that.  When the body starts shutting down and expelling blood, you're not going to be able to walk that off.  You need to get that shit looked at, my friend.

post #8645 of 10849
No more expelling blood. I only threw up blood that one time a few weeks ago...though that's still not a good thing. The more I think about it, the more I think it might've been from taking too many BC powders (despite what the Dr said). I've heard that can do that. The only blood letting lately was from smashing my face into the sink *rolls eyes*..
post #8646 of 10849

Symptoms can come and go, but something can still be wrong -- seriously wrong -- under the surface. Don't let symptoms subsiding trick you into thinking everything's fine. Glad to hear you're feeling better, very glad to hear you're getting yourself looked at. I hate going to the doctor too, but if I was having even some of your symptoms, I'd get my ass there ASAP. If it makes you feel better, don't think of it as a doctor's appointment; think of it as escaping the Texas summer heat in some air-conditioned surroundings for a while.

 

Take care of yourself, man. You're too good for us to lose.

post #8647 of 10849

You may have a food allergy, or you may have a food intolerance. That means you don't go into shock when eating certain foods, but your body can react with inflammation of your body tissues (you may think you are getting fat, but it's not fat, it's all the cells in your body reacting to whatever the enemy food is.

 

A simple blood test will tell you if you have a food allergy or a food intolerance. 

post #8648 of 10849
And if you ever are in doubt, drink water. As much as you can stand. It never hurts.
post #8649 of 10849
I've had the shits for about five days now. I thought maybe it was something I ate, and I'd get better over the weekend. But no, I've blown mud about four times today. It's like squirting YooHoo from my anus.

I went to the doctor this afternoon because I ain't afraid of no medical professional. Apparently, I've lost five pounds thanks to this bug. The doctor wrote me a prescription for something or other. So I'll fill that on my way home from work and hopefully stop shitting like a soda fountain.
post #8650 of 10849
Brad: been there. If the prescription is some kind of Imodium type deal it helps. Sometimes it's as easy as that. You stop shitting=you stop shitting.
