    • My nephew gave me a cold on Christmas (thanks for bringing a sick kid to Christmas). My first since 2019. I hate being sick. Thankfully it hasn't moved into my lungs.

      Oh, and I also forgot the cough drops have have sorbitol in them. So I got that going for me too.

      • This one is a massive gear grinder for me right now…

        I got accepted as an official for the 2023 Arctic Winter Games. For background, it’s an international sports festival for the circumpolar regions like Alaska, Yukon, Nunavut, Greenland etc. It’s kind of a deal.

        Anyways, I’ve been filling out the needed paperwork, done through a well made online system I must say. The one holdup for me has been completing the background check. The event is being held in Northern Alberta so the requirement and the paperwork sent out is to complete a “Vulnerable Sector Check” with Royal Canadian Mounted Police, they even emailed a nice letter I can take to my local RCMP attachment to complete this step.

        Obviously, this is a bit difficult for someone in Anchorage, Alaska to complete (for reference, the Whitehorse RCMP detachment is about a 14 hour drive).

        So I have tried contacting the Coordinators for Technical Officials trying to find a suitable alternative (State Troopers background check, FBI background check, SafeSport background check and training etc.) and how to deliver them results. The only response I have gotten from the Coordinators for Technical Officials, the people whose literal job it is to solve problems like this, was the email addresses of two officials from Alaska who have completed this step and was told to ask them how they completed it.

        I’m sorry, it’s my fault for thinking that a Coordinator for an international sporting festival, one in which Alaska was a founding member of and typically has the largest delegation, would be able to come up with an acceptable solution to this.

          Congrats on the appointment, but it sucks about the hassle.

          Is there some sort of fingerprint requirement or do they have to take your photo or something for this check? It seems strange they would need you to present in person in the absence of one of those requirements.
          That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

            • A very good friend's ex-wife was killed in a snowmobiling accident yesterday up near Hibbing. I won't lie and say she was my favorite person, but it's a tragedy nonetheless and she leaves 2 kids in college and 1 in h.s.

                • Me:
                  Wife: Sorry, there's only a little hot water left
                  Me:
                  *turns on water, gets in*

                  Me: JESUS ****. IT'S LIKE LAKE WATER.

                  Me: You said there was some left, not none! Stick your hand in that.

                  now, I can't exactly describe my wife's face, but it's whatever the German word for I'm-laughing-but-I'm-really-sorry-I-promise is.

                        • There needs to be a ban on blue/white headlights. Or at the very least an aggressive campaign on against them installed where the point of focus is straight into the other driver’s eyes.

                          Nothing worse than being temporarily blinded by the other car’s regular lights because they opted for the 6k lumens that are somehow pointing up.
