And it works, because Cainad can attest, those are almost precisely the exact words I used to describe the Barstool Experiment to my wife this past Sunday afternoon, as if it was lodged in my consciousness.

She liked it, btw.

True fact. It's a pretty durable narrative, probably because it involves smacking people.

Hoopla, Mrs. Hoopla, and myself ran riot over New York City.

Well, more like just a bar. And by "riot" I mean "drank a responsible number of beers."

Sunday evening after 5 is available for me, but I understand if that's busy or your designated nap time (traveling makes me really tired, dunno about you). If I hadn't moved another 1.5 hours away from the city I'd come out Monday after work, but alas.

Cainad complains:

The doc diagnosed typical hyperthyroidism, which explains very clearly why I lost 20 pounds in three months and my resting heart rate was over 100. So for now I'm Grabbin' Pillz.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little pissed. I was in the best physical shape of my life 6 months ago, and now I can barely do a push-up without feeling like I'm dying.

Anyone got advice for getting fat?

PeeDee, I have lost 20 pounds (1.8 Celsius) between January and the beginning of April, unintentionally. I am led to believe that this represents a potentially serious health concern. I'm going through the rigamarole of getting to see a primary care physician, but if I went to an urgent care clinic would they be able to get bloodwork done faster? Also, do I have some kind of cancer-AIDS?

My understanding is that both urgent care and primary care have to send stuff to a lab, maybe the same lab, depending on location.

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope it's just a tapeworm or some other horrible, treatable parasite.

Given the timeframe of the weight loss, I wouldn't stress about the waiting to get tests done part unless you're talking weeks to even see a doctor. (Not medical advice, I am not a physician, etc.)

Much thanks. I definitely expect any nearby clinics to send blood to the same lab, I'm just starting to get antsy. I missed my appointment on Friday and was rescheduled for next Friday.

I didn't really notice a problem until it started affecting my martial arts training. I got weaker and weaker, and then I started vomiting after heavy calisthenics. Not going back until I know where the fuck my already meager muscles went.

Apparently the army has great mental health care.
Weird considering they don't let anyone with mental problems in.

Soldiers commit suicide at a higher rate than the general population. It's very bad for PR, and they will put you under 24/7 guard if you have any indications that you might be even slightly depressed or unstable.

Sure, just change the name to Jake.

You don't hear anything good about Obamacare because people like it that way. It's still far away from what I want, but the fact is that it's better than before.

And I'm not sure you appreciate the threat that yahoos pose when they see that "their guy" has got the big job, so now they can get to work "making America great again." And all the horrors that entails.

Clinton will piss people off (and who won't?), but Trump will embolden fascists.

That's what I'm thinking, although the program I originally used to make it got borked. :lulz:

I really like the aesthetic I had for it, but I think it was a little ambitious for my level of expertise and that's why I stopped. Took too damn long to make things look pretty.

If I get one or two more essays I'll slap in that table of contents and finish it off.

Let me know if the attachment doesn't work. This is an incomplete draft of the second Intermittens issue I tried to make, but never finished to my satisfaction. I don't remember exactly when this was made, I think about 2011-ish.
