  1. Marinol is an appetite stimulant. If you're already hungry, it probably won't do much for you. The tinnitus/hearing loss is a common side effect, typically with platinum based chemotherapies like carboplatin or cisplatin. Has that been part of your regimen?
  2. Hey GB- there are 2 types of magic mouthwash- 1 has lidocaine and is supposed to be swish and spit, and the other has no lidocaine, but is safe to swallow. The lidocaine version works better, but apparently can upset your stomach. If you end up with sores in your esophagus and you have the lidocaine version, it’s still ok to swallow. You can just see how it affects you, nausea-wise. Our kids don’t typically complain.
  3. I thought visine just gave you diarrhea?
  4. We’re looking at cashing in by selling while it’s hot, dumping a good chunk of the profit into a down payment, and still being able to bank six figures. We found a house that we really like, that also has a great air bnb history (there are 2 upscale yurts on the property). Problem is that the house has polybutylene plumbing, and the owners won’t budge on replacing or negotiations. We’re moving on…
  5. Wait- as in the Casa Bonita from South Park? That's a real place??
  6. As far as the curfew goes, it seems that the touristy provinces have the later curfew. Makes sense from an economic perspective, plus I would imagine a higher likelihood of tourists being vaccinated. That said, the vaccination rate for DR is roughly 50%, and they are launching another push this week.
  7. Sitting at PUJ for the trip home now. Overall, we had a pretty nice trip. The best thing we did was take an excursion to Saona Island. Easily the prettiest beach I’ve ever seen. Portions of Pirates of the Caribbean and Survivor were apparently filmed there. Worst thing we did was a deep sea fishing charter. The boat was terrible, and the seas were extremely choppy. A lot of the rails were loose, and the ladder was only secure on one side, so when the boat was moving violently, you’d go to grab a rail and it would just come with you. Incredibly dangerous. When we got back, I talked to the guy that booked it for us. He said that all the good boats were refusing to go out because it was too rough, so he booked us on what he could get. Thanks a pant load.... As far as covid, it was no big deal. We wore masks when we went shopping and in the airport. Other than that, no real impact. Things did shut down around 10pm or so, but we weren’t impacted. For those coming to Punta Cana soon, the beaches and water are loaded with seaweed. Some of the hotels clear their beaches, but it comes right back, but there’s not much they can do to clean the water. The beaches in Bayahibe and Saona were clear though, since that’s the Caribbean side. Last thing- as we were starting to pack up yesterday, my wife realized her passport was gone. We searched everywhere, called around, checked the beach, etc. we were resigned to putting out daughter in the flight home alone, and then taking the 3 hour trip to the Capital to handle things at the US Embassy. We decided to search one more time before reporting it stolen. While we were searching, I came across the card of one of the taxi drivers we used. I hit him up on What’s App, and sure enough, it had fallen between the seats in his cab. We had him pick us up and take us to the airport today, and I gave him about $100 extra as a thank you. He saved our asses.
  8. That was quite an ordeal... finally made it to our condo a little before midnight.
  9. The plot thickens... our original flight from MIA to DR pulled away from the gate and got on the runway when it too experienced a mechanical issue. We’re we in line for rebooking when we were told to run to the gate. So we made it on the plane but are now stuck at the gate due to an absent push crew. The poor people who actually made the flight in time have now been on the plane for about 2 hours.
  10. So, super fun development... American was late arriving, and therefore leaving Atlanta, which means we’ve missed the last flight from Miami to DR tonight (on any airline). I understand they’ll likely offer meal/hotel vouchers here in MIA, but what other compensation should I be asking for? We’re losing a night, and likely half a day tomorrow in DR. Any chance we get some credit for the time and room night that we’ll be losing in DR? PS- we’re sitting on the runway because either AA or MIA apparently can’t get their #### together.
  11. Yeah, curfew at either 2100 or 2200 depending on the day. Neat.
  12. I'm concerned that WetDream will consider this to be an invitation for docking.
  13. I have several SLB inspired cat shirts for work. Honestly, the kids and the other nurses love them. One of my patients gets disappointed when I wear a regular tshirt. My wife and kid... not so much.
  14. Going to Punta Cana tomorrow. Will report back. If I survive.
  15. Not an image, but on my old Sirius device, CeCe Peniston came up as: “CeCe Penis -ton”
  16. How are you guys managing 30+% short term capital gains tax on these frequent trades. Just a cost of doing business that you factor in?
  17. NE Atlanta suburb- QT still has gas, but a couple of smaller mom and pop stations are empty.
  18. That’s what I’m seeing as a guess, but I’m pretty clueless. I know that the CEO said someone in discord had guessed correctly, but didn’t let anyone know specifically.
  19. I’ll be the resident safemoon honk... they have projects coming up soon that should provide a nice bump: 1. They’re creating their own wallet 2. they’re creating their own game 3. they’re creating their own exchange Additionally, they are working on something called Project Pheonix (that’s spelled correctly). It’s a secret at the moment, but they are releasing details in 10 days or so. There’s also the possibility (likelihood?) that they’ll be listed on coin base and/or binance. They’re already listed on several other exchanges, just not the big ones yet. They’re approaching 2M holders, and have dominated social media mentions for the past 7-10 days. Add all of that to their initiatives to serve the “un-banked” in Africa. I’m holding a decent bag (actually bought a chunk more yesterday) so take this fwiw, but I absolutely see room for some nice short and long term growth.
  20. I did both 23andme and Ancestry. As noted above, 23 presents itself as being more health-centric. Ancestry is more heritage based. For example, Ancestry linked me to a group of settlers from Europe who settled in Northern Alabama in the early 1800's. 23 doesn't have that kind of specificity. On the other hand, it looks like Ancestry doesn't even offer their Health add-on anymore. Between the 2, you'll get a good idea of your heritage, but if health risks are of interest, go with 23 and Me. PS- I didn't know anything about my father either. Long story, but I spent my first 20+ years or so thinking I was Irish. The next 20+ thinking I was Italian. Surprise- I'm a Russian Jew!
  21. Supposed to be listed on 2 exchanges wed/thu. they’re also supposed to be releasing details about a game they are developing. Should be a good week. The deflationary model should mitigate a true dump decline with the re-distribution to long term holders. As the whales sell off, the holders increase their percentage. I’ve picked up almost 2 million shares over the past 5-6 days by doing absolutely nothing. Admittedly, I know next to nothing when it comes to crypto, but logic indicates that this model should temper the chances of a significant price crash.
