  1. I think a combination of the two above posts would be my advice. Sports keep your muscles tight and Pilates (or "Teh Rack") is designed to strengthen and stretch the muscle. And of course, the muscle is attached to the bone. I'm 5'12" (That's what I usually tell people) and I was in MMA for a few years, it's true that taller is NOT always an advantage but the long limbs can be.
  2. Electric cars run so quietly I don't hear them coming. That is very concerning to me (for the visually impared that rely on that sound for safety.) Maybe they could add little whistles like they used to have to prevent deer from running in front of you only slightly louder. My favorite car is 25 years old. It runs beautifully but is not environmentally friendly (the cost to make it so is beyond my capasity at the moment). I love it though and it's very special to me.
  3. You could mount it on a light wood with the temperature gradient burned into the wood....very nice. I'd buy it. I use an old desiccator as a candy dish; no one ever seems to notice though.
  4. Is that a compressed gas cylinder sitting in front of the wall vent? That’s not a heating vent, right? Also, I like the wall color is that paint or wallpaper? Sorry. Anyway, I was looking at giant wall thermometers the other day and they are expensive! If you mounted that on a nice wood plate and change the color to a less pink hue, you could make good money.
  5. It seems as though human beings are the ultimate uncontrolled variable. That's nothing new though.
  6. Maybe it was a "down time". Perhaps migration. Keep looking and you will find some.
  7. I like "Don't worry even the inept have self-esteem." "If you had been doing your job correctly there wouldn't be a man with a pail and broom following you around." I need to come up with friendlier ones.
  8. I agree. Simply by seeking help for their depression shows they know somehow this can be better or they still have hope that it can. However, I do not feel that a person suffering through "clinical" depression has the clarity to request and be granted euthanasia. How many people who have been through depression have seriously thought about suicide and then after they recovered regretted even thinking it? I can not to see the choice of euthanasia as a "yes or no" for all persons in all situations.
  9. I thought the winner of the Darwin Award had to be killed in thier act. To show natural selection.
  10. Have you tried reading the chapter prior to lecture so you have it already digested and may gain further insight from the lecture?
  11. Such clarity is not usually present in depression. Perhaps being in a foul mood you may realize that it will pass but in most cases of depression it's not a matter of "get over it" or "This too shall pass". There is a very often an accompanying feeling of true hopelessness and sometimes self loathing that could be what is leading them to consider suicide.
  12. Since I was at work I cut paperclips into pieces for the 3 spots I slipped on. They worked so much better than toothpicks!
  13. Thank you I'm a bit of a pack rat. Every other year or so I buy one of those "pumpkin carving kits". I never use the designs but I always save the tools and each year they add a new tool so I've gathered a large collection (well organized too). This was done with a very small (1.5-2mm wide) saw blade. For me the hardest part is determining what parts to cut out first so the surface remains strong enough to be detailed without falling apart.
  14. Thank you I won the contest at work but the prize was lunch at a pizza place... I don't eat lunch and I hate pizza... But it was still fun.
  15. Here's a pumpkin I made for work:
