Pre-Overnight Open Thread
— Ace

I have a series of appointments tomorrow. I'm putting some posts into draft, and I'll hopefully get to put a couple up on the run during the day, but I'll be out of the office most of the day.

If any coblogs have something, please fire away.

13 I hope a coblogger has an expose on this awful Trump fellow. He actually failed to espouse true conservatism in the debate, where he was being asked about tax returns and Obama's birth certificate. Horrible, just horrible. Is that nice Hope-Not person still posting here? I have some ideas for going after county clerks and registrars who I think were not really strongly behind Cruz.

20 I learnt on the streets tonight that Lauren is right. (She usually is.) #nevertrump among Republican voting family women is a thing. It can't be wished away by calling them jerks. I did at least convince this one lady to vote for Darryl Glenn because (quoting myself) "if Hillary does win, and the Senate flips, this will be a one... party... state".

23 I suggest Trump figure out some way to convince these women that he's not a huge abusive bully. Staying focused during debates and limiting interruptions would help.

25 in the a.m. i'm seeing a sports doc to see if he can fix this problem I have with my heel. I stepped on glass six months ago. It still aches, like there's a permanent muscle knot. Like it mis-healed into knot or something. Also, I'm going to hopefully get diagnosed with IT band syndrome, which I actually have, but if I have a doctor's note, I can get the thing worked on a by a clinical massage therapist and insurance will cover part of it. It's kind of expensive. but when you're over 28, as I barely am, and are physically active, you really need a lot of work keeping your muscles in some kind of decent shape.

35 oh. someone recommended orthopedic shoes in a health thread a while ago. A brand called Vionics, I think. I had no idea if I had flat feet but I figured, eh, my feet hurt, I doubt my stride is proper, so I'll get them. So I've been wearing those, without knowing if I should be wearing them. Maybe it's screwing my shit all up. So i gotta ask him about that.

41 All kidding aside, BTH, isn't it pretty clear that Trump's odd performance was at least partly directly attributable to a strict Fuhrer-Befehl (prob. from Conaway and staff) to NOT come within 1,000,000 light years of "bully" behavior? Sort of ironic that he'd have to become even more unnaturally restrained and strategic to assuage the clueless sensibilities of suburban ballet moms.

51 speaking of throwing weapons: If you go to YouTube and search, you can find all sorts of knife-throwing videos, one by this cute Asian girl who tells you to start with cheap butter knives from Walmart. The idea is that they're not going to hurt you if they bounce back and they're cheap as hell so you can buy 20. And because you're a noob, you don't need any kind of expensive throwing knife yet anyway. very interesting hobby.

69 Ace, sometimes foot problems are caused by supportive shoes. I switched to minimalist shoes and my feet have never been happier even though I work on concrete floors.

93 Thanks, Rhomboid. The loss of Internet shopping will defiantly stretch out my miserable savings. A strategic stockpile in toilet paper, brass and lead (the new currency), needed Rx drugs, and trade goods like ValuRite miniatures is a goal. I agree that we are being targeted today by forces of evil, and the burning times are already underway. Our browser history is a window into our soul, and we have a panopticon culture online. In addition, diversity trumps merit more and more, with predictable results. Reinforcing failure is not a stable strategy for a thriving country. Strong local networks, and don't be a jerk of a neighbor is on my list. I expect to have my spouse and I denied expensive medical care, as the powers that be cross reference voter records with health records.

96 Also, I'm also going through an IT Band Syndrome thing. Just learned about it a couple days ago, when I couldn't complete my run. Got new running shoes today, if the rain holds off I may try to get a run in before work. And I'm bow-legged as hell, so I am a natural, IIRC, under-pronator, so I need to work on my form. Been out of running for a couple years, my form has gotten sloppy. Worst-case, I may dig out my smelly Vibram Five-Fingers. They're hell on your calves until you build them up, but they force you to land mid-step and flat-footed, or else you end up with a concussion from the heel-strikes vibrating your whole body all the way up to your head, lol.

97 Foot pain? A few years ago, I had plantar fasciitis, and walking was agony, especially first thing in the morning. Saw a doctor, who took X-rays, and said, "I know exactly what you have, and how much it hurts, because I have it, too." Recommended certain exercises, and braces, and said "cortisone shots are a last resort."


Did some research on the Internet, and found these guys: https://heelthatpain.com/

Eh, for $29 for their HTP heel seats, it's worth a shot. Within weeks, the pain was gone. I went through several sets of them, but no longer use them, because no need at all. My feet are fine. Just came back from a mile or more walk on a gravel road, no problem at all.

100 >>> What happened to French? I learned it, pretty much. I'm in the last year of learning it. I'm speaking it. It will take a while to get good at speaking it but this is the last hurdle. i've got nuances to add and stuff and I want to know more slang but as far as standard french, i'm pretty decent now. well, okay, let me take some of that back: You can never know a foreign language completely. When I read novels I have to look up a lot of of words. There are always more words to know. but that's the sort of thing that just takes constant use. it's not really learning it at that point, it's just using it. Like kids pick up new vocab mostly from reading and using the language, not studying vocab itself.

And the need to keep using/hearing/speaking. I am trying to regularly watch Russian TV news online, but my herculean indolence usually wins out. For some reason have lost the passion for Portuguese, so that's just the occasional public encounter (very distinctive small Brazilian accent I can pick out in one sentence, and usually surprise them by going right into Portuguese - continental/African would be different but don't run into those very often).

The past 7.5 years has been nothing but a complete and utter lose for conservatives, with the only exception I see is gun rights. I shutter to think what 4 or even 8 years of Hillary will do the country.

Their heel seats have a pressure pad in them that basically applies accupressure to the plantar fascia, and helps it stretch and de-calcify. Sort of mimics one of the exercises they have you do...with every step you take. Not at all uncomfortable, either. I was astonished that something so cheap, and so effortless, could be so effective. I think my plantar fasciitis was brought on by wearing those cheap-ass WalMart sneakers, which offered zilch for support.

167 I was asking about the Rosetta Stone earlier because I once actually was close to fluent on paper. I took upper level literature classes in Spanish in college after having done well in Ap and in the achievements (first in the state, they said in a whisper). Anyway, I lost most of it, but can still decipher most of it BUT I always sucked at conjugating verbs on the fly and I had had only Castillian teachers and profs----which means I can't understand Americans- Spanish at all. I think an auditory tool might help or at least ping my brain to remember what I already once knew? I have no ear. I think the solution would be immersion, but I don't want to do that and can't really. Also, if it's a pod cast, I can hike/walk/exercise with it on.

183 162 >>159 why not start at the start and do Latin? no strong interest. Posted by: ace I took 3 years of Latin in HS (that would be somewhere around 10 years ago, give or take), and I loved it because I love history...but seriously, learning 5 Declensions of nouns, 4 Conjugations of verbs, ordering the objects and subjects of a sentence and matching up their endings to the verbs/adjectives/adverbs in the sentence (and many endings of the different genders are the same), just to figure out what a sentence is talking about...is brutal. There's a reason it's a dead language, I have to say despite my love for it. It's probably the reason I have such a block learning other languages since.

184 Actually CBD that's true, but there are other situations that are fun. Two old Russian ladies with limited English at the pharmacy counter. I stand there while they struggle a bit with the pharm tech, then step up and translate for them. All smiles from the ladies, funny, though not disapproving, look from the pharmacy guy. And last weekend, as I'm about to get out of the pool after my workout (university pool), I notice the two young people in the next two lanes are speaking Russian. I explained to them that when I was studying it, one never encountered the language, anywhere, apart from Radio Moscow, or in the USSR - and now I hear it everywhere. But the Brazilian Portuguese is definitely more useful for, uh, interacting with young hotties, who are fairly abundant in SoCal.

195 ace, don't take shoe advice from us. Everyone's feet are different. Lots of people love Clark's for instance. I can't wear there. I suppinate - that is my feet roll outward when I walk, which strains my muscles. A podiatrist recommended New Balance walking shoes for me because of it - I hate their looks, they are old lady shoes - but they support my feet properly. More people have issues with excessive pronation - their feet roll inward and that can lead to flat feet. It's pretty easy to tell if you do either - just dig out an old pair of shoes and see how the heel is worn down. You might need ortho inserts to correct the problem but you also need the right shoes. Researching brands yourself and perhaps seeing a podiatrist, or going to a specialty shoe for inserts is the thing to do.

There are sites online where you can practice speaking languages with native speakers. Some require payment but I'm sure there are others where you can find people that want to speak English and trade you lessons.



Benny Lewis - "Fluent in three months" had a few listed in his book. Alright book but get it from the library. To save anyone a few hours of reading, set learning objectives, you'll never be perfect - don't try, and speak as often as possible in your new language.

That meant he would have to do it in a hospital, which had a bunch more requirements.

255 Roll your foot on a tennis ball for plantar fasciitis... or if you can stand it a frozen bottle of water. Posted by: Tami...Powering through being a depolorable Thanks for reminding me of this, after you posted that, I went downstairs and got my double-tennis-balls*, and rolled on my arch. Worked like a charm, feel like I could run again in the morning. * double-tennis-balls: get two tennis balls, tape them together with 100mph tape (ie civilian duct tape)...lean against a wall/door, and squat up and down. Gets rid of those knots in your back that you can't rub out yourself, or have a Miss Venezuala Piggy on-hand to rub out for you. Plus, you can get a sharpie and draw nipples on them and it's funny.

258 My father was 85 I think when he had problems with sore feet. Being in Ontario, Canada, he went to the doctor who referred him to a specialist 2 hours away.


The appointment was over a year away, which isn't unusual for specialists.



So Dad outwitted the Ontario medical system and lived to see his appointment. I drove him there. Went into a small room. The nurse had him change into shorts. That was the only time in my entire life I'd seen my dad in shorts.



The doctor came in. Ten minutes later, he prescribed him new orthotics (sp?) for his shoes. A YEAR's WAIT....



It's already burning....

261 Alberta Oil Peon -- thanks for the tip about Heel That Pain. Week and a half ago, my doctor wasn't sure what my foot pain was -- we were both thinking gout, but the location was wrong and other symptoms were wrong. So I did more research, and realized it EXACTLY matched plantar fasciitis. My damned foot's gone fascist on me. I'm going to try their inserts and see if they help.

      He can't do it, and won't. He could actually, but it's the liability and all that shit about "standards of care".

I think Magnesium Malate doesn't have the diarrhea side effects that some of the other forms have, like citrate or oxide.

Epson salt oil (applied topically) or epson salt baths are also a way to get around the laxative effect.

306 Yeah most people are deficient in Magnesium. I had all sorts of aches and pains and weird things that vanished once I started taking a couple of magnesium tabs in the morning. AVOID BUYING THE SHIT YOU GET AT THE STORES! It's the oxide form and the most poorly absorbed form. You'll get almost nothing from taking the recommended dose and you don't want to take fistfuls of them. I take these: https://www.amazon.com/Doctors-Best-Absorption-Magnesium-Supplement/dp/B000BD0RT0 It's a much better form and easily absorbed. You get your money's worth. I only take two and like I said all sorts of problems simply vanished.

357 Last year my son stepped on mechanical pencil lead. He went and had a doctor take it out. It made a knot and hurt. I made him another appt 6 months later, they squeezed out a half inch of pencil lead (graphite).

I had glass in my foot but couldn't find it. Finally, while sitting with a sick kid in the dark, I started probing the spot with a needle and my phone flash light. I was able to see it in the dark room because it glinted off the light, and got it out.

The glass is still in Ace's foot.

380 Re: "office" When my dad was old and sick, I drove him to show him the printing shop where I work. I opened the garage door and drove my car into the shop area. I wanted to show him around the place and the office where I worked, but he didn't feel like getting out of the car. He said, "You have an office?" I said, "Well, it's a room with desks, computers, and files, so yeah, I guess." Then I realized that the word meant something different to him. I work in a small business, but he used to work for a corporation, and an "office" was something only the bigwigs had. The worker bees worked on the shop floor or in the field. I thought it was kind of interesting. He seemed impressed that I have an "office". Yeah, Dad, I made good.

419 rickl, Weirddave did this awesome ONT filled with funny GIFs that he tied all together into a commencement speech. Unfortunately, it was all too much for Pixy's hamsters and they just stroked out.

421 "Last year my son stepped on mechanical pencil lead. He went and had a doctor take it out. It made a knot and hurt. I made him another appt 6 months later, they squeezed out a half inch of pencil lead (graphite). " When I was a kid, I somehow managed to jam a pencil into my left hand. The graphite broke off, stayed in. Still there, some 35 years later. There's a little black spot on my hand, and a "knot" I can feel under the skin.
