    We’re you raised in a padded cage? WT F was wrong with you that you didn’t break a bone or require a hospital trip growing up?

    "One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its Black Gates are guarded by more than just Orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep, and the Great Eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust, the very air you breathe is a poisonous fume." Boromir

      The thing with me is I was free range and looking back there are at least 20 times when I had no business not breaking a bone if not my neck. My special power isn't health, it's like Teela Brown's luck.

      • Had a colonoscopy yesterday, don't remember anything but the clean out which is never fun. Any of you hitting 45 or 50 yrs old, don't shy away from getting it done.

          by all rights I should have several times. I fell off on of those 15' high playground platforms and made it out with a sprained wrist.

          I slipped climbing a tree about 20-25' up but ended up grabbing the trunk and rode it nearly to the ground. My entire chest was scraped to ****, bloodied, and my shirt was shredded.

          I've always hated hospitals since I was very young. My mom has stage 4 breast cancer and we spent a lot of time there. She's still kicking 35+ years later!

            The worst thing about the colonscopy is that vile substance that makes you sh-t clear. The procedure itself is just a trip to Fentanyl Heaven. I think it may catch on.

              As someone for whom a colonoscopy detected colon cancer in its very early stages two years ago, I can say take that little ride to heaven.

                Not sure if you saw this:

                Edutainment at its finest. Also, I did not know that the age to start screening had dropped 45. It was 50 when I got mine. I was hoping that in the 10 year span between tests they could come up with a better tasting drink but alas, I don't think that happened.

                    Interesting. Not me. I went slooooooooowly into an ecstatic torpor, and I remember all of it. It was better than first drunk or first orgasm pleasure. It was first time reading Kant pleasure.

                      Ask your doctor about the Cologuard test. Non-invasive. It's only "good" for 3 years and not for people at higher risk for CRC, however for those of us generally healthy and not in a high risk category, it's a good alternative.

                      I also built the direct interface to Exact Sciences last winter and recently had a "handoff" call to our new support folks, so it's pretty fresh on my mind.
                      I gotta little bit of smoke and a whole lotta wine...

                        I guess the first time I read Kant I had neither pen*s nor brain.

                          I've been mixing my solution with lemon-lime Gatorade. Never given Fentanyl, always Propofol.

                          Shoulda said 'adding' Gatorade.

                            I remember one time my dad was going through that, and was told clear liquids only. So he added vodka.

                            Far as I remember it still worked out.

                            • Was moving a small coffee table in the basement so we could start setting up the basement Christmas tree. Tweaked my lower back real good. Can't bend forward anymore. Ugh.
