Need to get that straightened out before you wake up in an early grave.

Jesus Bro! Sort your shit out! That's scary Shocking

I completely agree with both of you and already submitted a request for an appointment to discuss getting the bipap machine as soon as I can. Those numbers are freaking terrifying...and explain a lot about not just the headaches but daytime sleepiness as well. I'm glad to live in a time though, where science has reached the point where we have machines that can help with this sort of thing, rather than living when, idk, the church ran things. (Sorry Popes!)

Need to think of a witty signature.

Water Dispersing- Formula 40. I can't for the life of me understand some of the uses people put it to. My FIL used it to lube the sliding glass door rollers for decades. As an aside, why is it called a "sliding" glass door, when it is on rollers, anyway? I took it apart because it used to take two men and a boy to move it. Turns out that the adjusters on the rollers that keep the door from dragging on the rail were broken. Fabbed new parts, and my wife damn near broke the glass the first time she was over there and opened the door, it moved so freely. It had been "lubed" with WD-40 for 35 years (that I know of), to no avail. If my FIL had asked me to look at it, it would have saved a lot of wear.

Part of me wants to just say, "who cares" or "it shouldn't matter" but it literally broke my heart.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Apparently, #Texit is a thing now Facepalm

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Hug I can kinda understand. Sorry to hear that, Moms.

The 2000+ uses for WD40.

For example:

• Removes crusted gunk from bird cages
• Lubricates metal joints on old wooden toys
• Removes tar from shoes
• Coat electric guitar pickups to prevent rusting
• Removes gum from bottom of shoes
• Use for science project on rust prevention
• Cleans and protects cowboy boots

• Cleans synthesizer keys
• Loosens crud around stoppers on antique perfume bottles
• Keeps dog collars squeak-free
• Cleans rusty jewelry
• Removes rust from steam irons
• Removes paint from leather
• Lubricates and improves electrical contacts on model train tracks
• Removes rust from hair curler
• Removes rust from dog tags
• Coat collectible metal toys before storing to prevent tarnishing and corrosion
• Loosens tight propane tank handles
• Shines vinyl sneakers
• Shines bronze sculptures
• Clean spots off shoes
• Lubricates walkers for easier folding
• Protects archeological tools
• Protects combination locks
• Cleans power steering from driveway
• Protects and maintains armor suits
• Dissolves glues
• Loosens caked-on food from stove
• Protects and polishes bronze grave markers
• Protects antique milk can from rust
• Protects gym lockers from steam/water damage
• Removes stains left from silly string
• Restores transparency of plastic shoes
• Prevents rust and cleans Katana swords
• Lubricates hinges of eyeglasses
• Lubricates and protects antique weapons for historical reenactments
• Spray spurs to prevent rust
• Cleans clipper blades in dog grooming shop
• Cleans mud from shoes
• Removes stickers from piano keys
• Removes stickers on CD cases
• Cleans wire rims

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: What Did You Learn Today?
Early each summer the baby squirrels (or as I call them tree rats) come out.

I've noticed most are brown, but occasionally there's a very light gray or black baby squirrel around. Neither of those seem to survive long. Yesterday I saw a very light gray squirrel alone romping about. That's also odd since they're usually out in groups...

Of course I've already flattened three under the tires of my car, but they were all the common brown type...
