55? Showing your age huh? Should be no less than 90!

I'm kidding. I putter around at about 30... 20 if it's raining.

The dr. quotes kind of facinate me my little brother is a doctor. As far as fixing like a mechanic lawyers are in the way.

This is true, a patient comes in I don't know for what, my brother says this is out of my league you better see a specialist. The specialist screws something up, here come the lawyers.
They sue everybody in sight. The judge takes my brother off of the lawsuit because he had no part in the screwup, but he had to get his lawyer down there and had to miss work to testify, he doesn't get paid when he misses work. So it cost him a bunch of money for nothing, and his malpractice insurance goes up because he was sued.

That was the only time he was sued, but his malpractice insurance is more than his salary, he has his own practice with 2 or 3 other drs. in it.

Stubbornness. That's primers word of the day, or more like life. It increases my stress tenfold. How much certain people in my life and their unwillingness to even consider I might be right on something is taking years off my life.

Oh, you say, have you tried talking to them? Uh, see the first word in this post? Do you understand the definition? I assume you just do not understand the deep rooted level it is with people I have to deal with.

One small example I deal with on a daily basis: I use a wood stove as a supplemental heat source. There is certain things you do, and do not do, when operating a wood stove. The stubborn ones think I am anal about the dos and nots. Now the inside of the stove is black and shiny, and the house, along with every piece of clothing, carpet, etc, smells like a combination of wood smoke and tar/creosote. There is a pile of fresh ashes in front of it. Not to mention the dangers of a chimney fire, which has happened in the past from a result of my learning the process of using this particular wood stove. I try to pass on what I have learned, but stubbornnesss gets in the way. But I'm anal about it.

Primer, I do fire for a living, a lot bigger fires than what you have in a wood stove. You are correct to be anal about it. Once lit, the fire keeps itself going as long as there is air and fuel available.

Unless you have proper control of those two components, that fire will go where ever the heck it wants to go. You can make it clean or dirty depending on how you control it (mostly you control the air in the wood stove). But if you let a chimney fire get started, the fire gets control of the air (much stronger draft in the chimney) and some unexpected fuel (the stuff in the chimney). The fire gets a lot hotter and more damaging than the person who started the fire was expecting. And it can happen a lot faster than you think. Most of the time a chimney fire will take down a house. If you managed to learn from a previous experience without burning down your house, you're lucky!

Keep being anal about fire safety. That fire has a lot more "charge" than any bullets you ever had in a handgun.

Best friends dad was , well ....... He puts swamp people to shame .
He use to keep his welding rods ontop of the wood stove and ammo next to it so they would all '' STAY DRY '' News papers and wood were always in very close range , did this for years and years and years , how he survived I will never know . But it was also the same guy who would stick weld barefooted and put out the small fire with the same bare feet , he would walk around in these ragged very worn and thin tighty whities and could care less , he trimed his toe nail with small angle grinder not even a dremel tool , a grinder .
TOUGH .
oddly enough , he made dang good money in the markets ?????

The house was soo bad that when he got grounded his mom sent him over there
ROLMFAO !

I think that the whole world should go by the same clock. Set he global clock to Greenwich Median Time on a 24-hour clock and freaking leave it there forever. These days there are many, many people who work on the "global clock" anyhow. I know dozens of people who have to be at work in the middle of the night so that they can be in a meeting with Singapore or Ireland or somewhere else. If you have a meeting at 21:00, then it is that same damned time all around the globe, the position of the Sun or the moon in the sky be damned. Stay up till its dark if you like and wake up when the sun comes up, regardless of whatever "time" the clock says.
Use MORE starter fluid.


To me, time is simply a relative measure of where the sun is in relation to our position, at least as it is limited to everyone between two meridians (roughly) on the globe being on the same "time/hour".
