  1. I have cancer. So rare they don't even know what they are dealing with. Considerng NFT the name and auctioning off. Pretty crazy. I've known for some time and just didn't know what to do here. Have been @Otisattention whore? Yes. Like my GB the stage is never bigger enough. I haven't spent a second pissed off. Hey #### YOU,YOU KNOW WHO I AM.....i got things to do..........You wanna fight? Come on ####er,I haven't been killed yet. You folks, shoot, you made me better than I could have imagined I could be, You did that.. I love you so much.

  2. A few notes before I get into this list: - I watched at least two games (condensed into all-snap highlights) for all of the first round QBs, but QB is the hardest position to evaluate and the one that requires the most time commitment, so I feel like I still don't have a great handle on those guys. Mainly I am going with the party line at that position, and not moving anything around too radically. I'm not the guy to ask for a lot of insights on the finer points of these QBs. - These rankings are for standard PPR and non-PPR formats where RB/WR positions are emphasized. If you are in

  3. Great news, Dotatate scan didn't show cancer anywhere else in my body so it's localized in my neck. Had the port put in yesterday. Mrs. SLB wasn't allowed to come back for prep. I texted her that the cute nurse offered me oral as a way to calm my nerves but I told her I was married. Mrs. SLB texted back immediately "you should have taken her up on it". Too bad the offer was fictitious. Will be having what was described as a "thorough" surgery the week of 6/14. The cancer is still spreading and the goal is to remove as much of it as possible along with every node in my neck.

  4. there are so many phases of an interesting life. Childhood and your teenage years those phases come fast and you don't get a choice. Later in life they come slower and usually only when you go after them. Sometimes though you get forced into making those changes for health reasons or work or family or who knows what, and it's scary at first because you got used to how you were and changing feels scary This phase of your life was not constructive, and it almost cost you your job. But you are a good person and they liked you enough to give you the benefit of the doubt. You are absolutel

  5. TLDR See title. I'm vulnerable right now and really trying to get #### right. You'll see below but maybe I just need some strangers help? I'll try to answer any questions but please forgive me if I miss one, or two, or six. My first sip of anything was probably in 1983 at 5 years old. I asked my old man why Pabst was what he drank during the Packer game (had I known Packers 80s I may have been a drinker back then). I hated it. 15 years later I'm hammering beers with my boys in the woods. Otherwise my first "beer" was at 13 Long story short, myself and my alias have the most post

  6. Thanks for the replies. It really does help. Sorry I haven't checked in but I've really been focusing on my treatment and making things right at home. As for being from Wisconsin, well yeah. It's "what we do". I'm sure there's also some genetics at play, environment, lack of willpower, mental issues including anxiety and depression, the list goes on and on. Ultimately it truly is a disease and with the cognitive approach my treatment is taking, I'm seeing that more and more. That's not to avoid any responsibility on my part but I hadn't been dealing with anything in my life in a healthy

  9. I’ve started to rethink my involvement in the PSF because it appears that there is more interest in trading insults and zingers than legitimate discussions of policy and politics. Or when there is legitimate discussion of policy and politics, it is still laced with a healthy dose of ugliness. I think the universe of folks who continue to be interested in those kinds of exchanges is more limited than the broader audience who used to frequent those discussions.

  12. IMO, right-wingers (a group that includes me) tend to have a blind spot when it comes to "white privilege." Admittedly, the term itself is probably poorly chosen, but the phenomenon that it describes is pretty obviously real. You're right of course that Lebron's kids are probably going to have a much easier time going through life than my kids. But that's not the point. When people talk about white privilege, they don't mean "Every white person has it easier than every black person." That would be silly, and pointing to Lebron would be a good and easy refutation of that argument. Wh

Felt surprisingly decent on the run, but then the legs wouldn't move. I had no delusions here but wanted sub 6 which I got (5:34:17) And I ACTUALLY RAN THE RIGHT COURSE Oh, 2nd place in the 45-49 AG

  15. Since you chose to analyze me in your extremely pompous and patronizing post, allow me to respond in kind: You’re the first person here I reported in over ten years. I did so because you actually asked me in a post how I would feel if my wife or daughter were raped or murdered by undocumented immigrants. After I reported you, you disappeared for a long time, so I assume you were suspended. Not long enough IMO. That particular post caught my eye; I was angered and offended by it. But the truth is I don’t read most of your posts. They’re incredibly long-winded, filled with nonsensical

  18. Its bizarre how we handle speed limits as a country. The speed limit is supposed to be an upper limit, not a lower limit. But enforcement is haphazard so people treat it as a lower limit like you do, knowing that most cops won't pull someone over for going 5 over, even if they do, you're playing the odds that it won't be you who gets pulled over, and then that you'll be able to talk your way out of it or beat it in court. At no point in the average person's calculus does the risk of death or serious accident even play a part - it's the ticket. And the state has zero motivatio

  20. Thanks everyone, today was the first time that attempted to run fast since getting hurt and I am happy with the way my body held up. I came in 3rd overall and walked away with a $100 check. I did lose to a guy wearing pants though which was bizarre considering the conditions. I talked to him after the race and didn’t get a good explanation on why he races in pants, just that his nickname is Pants. Time for beer as I am visiting some old friends.

  21. I'm working through film right now. Have seen 2-3 games for most of the top QBs. Working on the WRs now. RBs should be quicker since I've done more prep there. Hopefully will have a list by the end of the weekend at the latest.

  22. Appreciate the thoughts and messages. As I said, I've been scaling back my involvement in FF over the past few years, but I do think I'll rise to the challenge and put out some full public rankings in the next week or two. I have a pretty good idea of what I think at RB/WR/TE already. I just need to dive into the QBs because I've done no work there. I'll save full comments for a later time, but I have Najee, Waddle, and Pitts as the top guys at their positions. They would all be top 3-4 on my board in most formats. Probably fading Etienne at his ADP, as I think he's more of a sprinter and

  26. Yesterday a friend and I hiked the Grand Canyon. I’ll spare posting pictures because I’m sure you’ve seen plenty even if you’ve never been there. It’s beautiful scenery, of course. If you’re curious about the route, we took the South Kaibab trail down to the river and the Bright Angel trail back up. Both trails start at the south rim. Here’s a good article about the route. 16.5 miles total. 4,380 feet of elevation gain back up. The Park advises against doing a hike all the way down and back up in one day and there are several warning signs. Nobody stops you though. That made the

  28. Man, such a fun weekend! Anyone can sign up for 1, 2, or all 3 days of the training runs and I can see why they do. Great atmosphere and fun times. Three runs covering the last 70 miles of the WSER course. SATURDAY (Robinson Flat to Foresthill) - Started the weekend out with 30 miles over the toughest part of the course...especially for a midwestern flatlander. I can’t believe the descents out here. I looked down at my watch at mile 15 of this run and I had a whooping 500 feet of climbing...with 5,000 feet of descending. Then you proceed to climb out of three separate canyons

  29. There are some distinct stages of off-season information that a savvy dynasty player should understand. 1. The lead up to the start of the league year. Leading up to the beginning of the year is important to leverage. Potential free agents, cap casualties, etc can change the makeup of nfl rosters, launching previous backups into relevance (chase edwards) or offering a discounted trade price (Aaron Jones) because of landing spot uncertainty. You can also overpay (aj dillon) for players during this time. News during this time is often reliable- so and so will likely be cut for cap space,

  33. My advice which is the same advice I got from most here, especially when I first started: get rid of that arbitrary goal. Just run. The reasons for that: 1) That may or may not be where your current level of fitness is. Trying to hit some arbitrary round number doesn't help you. 2) On any given day, due to numerous variables (stress, sleep, diet, hydration, weather, terrain, etc), you may be faster or slower than your current fitness pace. Trying to hit the same number on every run is a recipe for disaster. 3) The more you run, the faster you will likely end up getting, especiall

  35. After 25 years of playing golf I had my first hole in one last night. Hole was playing 165. would usually hit a 6 but hit a 7 because it was downwind. It came off high and I thought it was going to be short but then hit about 4 ft below hole and just rolled in. Finished with a 40. 5 on first par 3, one on second par 3. Bar tab was almost 300 for my league but was worth it. Whoever started that tradition??

  37. As I was finishing my run tonight I started thinking how much I'd run in the past two weeks. 7, 7, 6, 7,0, 7, 0, 3, 9, 7, 0, 7 that's 60 miles in the last 12 days. 10 weeks ago my long run was 5 miles. Now that's my average even when I include rest days. 9 weeks ago I did my first 7 miler. I've done 7 or more miles in 7 of the past 12 days, meaning that more often than not I run at least 7. These are significant changes. I didn't have a perfect run tonight and my times have gotten worse, not better since I started increasing my daily average like this but compared to where I

  39. I'm an anti Trump Republican. I think he's done immeasurable damage to the party and to the country. The Republican Party is now the place where all the anti-science and conspiracy theory folks reside, and that's sad...we used to try and win by having a more optimistic and hopeful message. Now we tear others down because we don't want to face actual facts. Trump is largely to blame for this. I'm not saying he created anti science and conspiracy theories, but he sure gave them legitimacy....... Having said that, my studies at the Seminary have made me far more liberal when it comes to

  40. Ok not as insane as I thought. On my run this morning I pushed the last few miles, at mile 5 I was at 150 HR and figured I’d need to really push to get to 160 to see how that felt and went 6:58 on mile 6, first sub 7 mile I’ve done in 27 years.

The reality... hand excavate a 13x17 space 4 inches deep of Carolina clay 3 yards of abc aggregate and rent compactor to tamp it flat 1 1/2 yards of screenings leveled and smoothed for the pavers couple trips to Home Depot to load/unl

So yeah......it is hope. Much like Apple and Amazon were two decades ago. This is how it starts. And this is why you only invest what you are willing to lose in stocks like this. And as time goes on that hope can either turn into tangible earnings and a legitimate great business or it will go to zero. That is the stock market. That is it, in it’s very fundamental essence and about as simple as we

  44. I’m also an alcoholic. I’ve been sober for about 10 weeks. I was (am?) of the high functioning variety. I’ve used alcohol and drugs since age 14 (I’m 44) and I’ve known I’ve had a problem for a long time. I was never the loud, obnoxious party guy, but I loved how drinking helped me numb out. My childhood wasn’t great, a lot of abuse in my house, and I have basically been self-medicating for 30 years. It’s always been my go to when things got tough. It’s not my place to call anyone else an alcoholic, but I think it’s safe to say it runs in my family. Kudos to you for putting
