    1 Sale A Day, Daily Deal
    I bought one of these a while back from woot.com. It works well, but i have never used the computer progress tracking log function. For $30, if you've been stressed or overweight, it could be worth it.

    I don't work for that site or woot or anything; i just wanted to recommend this for those who, like me, have a reason to keep an eye on their blood pressure.

    Some forums have a "deals" thread, it might be worthwhile here (for more than just ammo deals).

    I can think of one guy, though fit, through years of sourdough abuse, has BP problems.:)

    BP meds thin out the blood, but haven't experienced any problems from that. I'm on a very low dose, something like 5mg or something. I have PRE-Hyper Tension.

    I told the Doc if she worked where I worked and had to put up with the barrage of stupid sh!t on a daily basis that I do, she would have PRE-Hyper Tension and an urge to kill as well....

    For awhile I was on Zoloft and that stuff REALLY messed me up. I could go forever, but I could never finish. It was great, for awhile, but sooner or later, a brother has to snap a piece off, you know what I mean. The gal I was with at the time thought I was some sort of stud, which was good for the ego, but god damn it, there comes a time.... :eek:

    Oh yeah, it's been a hoot.

    Being one of the tallest guys in Korea for close to a year. Living in a fish bowl wandering around with little kids pointing at you.

    Took a 243 foot ride in an elevated bucket truck and got thrown into a 12.5 KV wire causing first and second degree burns. JD 1 - Gravelings ZERO on that little escapade.

    Mindless nights of surfing for internet pr0n and thousands of meals alone in restaurants.

    Now I get to deal with semi rich land developers who feel they are the most important person in the world and are telephone tough guys all the time threatening me with lawsuits and losing my job.

    If it wasn't for this place, I would probably be in a tall tower by now and you would all be talking about "Who the hell is this *** making all of us responsible gun owners look like lunatics".... nice shooting though. :D

    I've got several cases of high blood pressure and diabetes in my family. My dad is borderline diabetic but has had blood pressure issues for about 10 years. I'm only 24 but I figure if I start watching it early, it'll be easier to watch later.

    Also my FIL has BP problems as well, even had a heart attack about 12 years ago and had to have a quad bi-pass surgery. He says that what happens when you live on a farm your whole life and eat 2 lbs of bacon and a dozen eggs every morning.:eek:

    Mayhaps just a "random thoughts" thread for stuff not really worth a whole thread, like a good deal on a BP measurer? I just wanted to let anybody looking for one know this one works for me. It might also be useful for the survivalist guys' medical kits. :) I don't have much to contribute, gun-knowledge wise, mostly questions.

    Done, I will set one up right after this.




    That's what they have guys like us ( Matt g, Stalkingbear, Canebreak, trueevil1313, jeepcreep, txhillbilly, Robo, etc ) for, to help those seeking knowledge. :D

    The more good, like minded folks we have, the better it will be across the country when the SHTF.
