Tried seriously exercising for the first time since contracting Lyme disease yesterday, and I thought everything was going fine. Then I woke up this morning and my back and knees NOPE'd. No more manual labor or sports for me, ever, it seems.

That pisses me off,
I walk in the woods often enough and have been doing so for eons.
Just over the past few years people have been telling me "be careful of tic's", I'm thinking to myself, wtf are you on about...
I've had quite a few "aliens" scotch on to me, especially at this time of the year.

Chin up mate.

Well that post was certainly motivating, I got back on it and disregarded pain. Endorphins help.






Seriously though, ticks don't do anything on their own, but you REALLY don't want Lyme disease.

How long since the tick bite that gave it to you? Lyme disease is curable depending on how long it's been.

I got the antibiotics relatively quickly after catching it - it could have been much worse. It attacks the tissue in your joints though, and I was laid out with a fever for a week before I got the medicine, so some damage was done.

Really the fact that I'm running around at all is lucky; this county is the tick and Lyme disease capital of the world, and I've seen others who have a hard time getting out of a chair.

Sooo... ALL the tickets to Black Sabbath in their home town show sold out within 4 minutes, and it seems that the site selling them doesn't reserve them for you while you fill in your information... **** my life...


Why oh why did they have to do the gig in a venue with a capacity of 3,500 people.....


Guess I will join the boycotters for not having the original drummer with them then

Well glad it was caught in time. My uncle had to get a pacemaker a few years back because he got the disease and it was never diagnosed in time.

Don't say no more manual labor sports for me then! Sounds like you'll recover. It could have been worse.

They're going to flood a polder ( reclaimed land ) here in my province in The Netherlands, a bit of me died the moment the decision was final. Stupid wildlife preservation tree-huggers over at Brussels. If there was a way to flood their offices I'd do it.

Ironically the most rare birds and other animals gather round our nuclear power station because it's so quite and calm around that area. If those animals could speak they'ed vouch for a second one

There's wildlife in the Netherlands? I thought it was all just urban or farmed areas.

Nuclear power? What do you do with the radioactive waste that has a half-life (thats HALF-life) of 2million or possibly 24,000 years?

I would think tree-huggers would be the least of your problems...

Pay another country that doesn't sit on a lot of underground water to bury it very deep. Pretty much what every nuclear powered country does...

You can't help but feel bad for the Syrian civilians trapped in the middle between the Syrian government and the FSA and radical Muslims. That country is totally and completely screwed.

Well we take care of the radioactive waste, we store it above ground in large halls where the radioactive material is being put into large drums filled with cement. The highly radioactive material is stored in a very safe bunker where it is stored and cooled for a long time to come. It can withstand being hit by a fully loaded F16 jet-fighter. It's even designed to keep operating even when it's been flooded by the sea. We will do it like this till we can store it some place else, old mine shafts perhaps?

I've been at the site and the funny thing is that you actually suffer from less radiation there, then you would during a normal day outside the bunker/halls.

That works, too.

The benefits to nuclear power are just so enormous it's completely irresponsible not to harness it.

1 Cup of Flour in a recipe that calls for 2 tablespoons is a grievous error in judgement.
