    Vending machines with SNAP cards ... that brings up its own set of issues. They'd also be even easier to victimize than ATMs. See someone getting their SNAP card out at the beginning of the month? Nab it. Use it. Resell. Those cameras wouldn't last long. Those basics would also need to be restocked a LOT, and freshness would become an issue. I also personally would not want eggs spat out by a vending machine.

    IMHO, yesh. Depends on individual circumstances, though. After my recent sprain the doc suggested tylenol or ibuprofen for teh inflammation. I use the latter cuz it seems to work better. (I'm no longer in constant pain :) )

    "Myotonia" is a specific physical thing. It sounds like they've determined it has a genetic component (and given what your family has said after the fact, there you go). It might have been triggered by some kind of hormonal or chemical change. Unfortunately, we're at the mercy of our familial historians to figure out a lot of what's wrong. Best of luck with this.

    That's me, too. Strangely it's the same with exercise. Once I'm out hiking/walking/whatever, I can keep going at a pretty good pace for a really long time without getting tired or sore or anything. I have stamina for hiking... and eating. Dammit.

    The last points are interesting. The biggest deficits in food deserts tend to be the fresh foods, so I wonder how much of that Amazon's food services can send them (for free, I assume).

    Probably the opposite, Trump may very well be the best post war President we have had. That isn't really saying much.. But it makes zero sense to say that a President who might actually be anti-establishment be worse than all of the establishment Presidents we have had.. I mean, you might think Trump is pro-establishment, but you have no proof of that. That is just your armchair quarter back opinion. Kennedy and Reagan had a positive vision for the people, but Kennedy was murdered for not falling in line and Reagan almost lost his life for the same reason. Trump is the only other post war President who has a chance at being anti-establishment. He has private security, and may be able to make some positive implementations.

    Any "rights"-related organization evolves into this over time. Once you've achieved your short term goals, or can't progress further, there's nothing left to do. That means you have to add goals or change the ones you still have hanging around. If you admit that there's nothing left to do, you have no reason to exist at the level of popularity/notoriety that you enjoyed earlier. You'd be out of a job! So once women were integrated into the workforce and things got much more "gender neutral," NOW started becoming more and more insane with their stated goals. "Gay rights" groups got a lot of things normalized, but that would have been the end of the road, so now they are busy finding discrimination in every possible corner and painting it as the ultimate evil, while constantly adding more letters (remember when it was just LGBT? then LGBTQ? now it's up to LGBTIQ or LGBTQ+). Well, the same is true of "civil rights" groups (NAACP, etc.). In order to bring in money, you have to stay relevant, which means you have to be oppressed and offended.

    Grapefruit is the biggest alarm bell, however some meds even react to any citrus whatsoever. With any pain reliever like that, you just have to weigh your risks. Harm your liver? Kidneys? Rough up your stomach? I wouldn't call any of them safe. Anyhow, back to Suz's diet :p I just wanted to be sure she wasn't taking any of the kinds of drugs that would get screwed up by grapefruit. It would suck to put effort into a diet to get healthier only to have unexpected consequences like that.

    I will say that there is a marked difference in the player statistics compared to a generation ago (or even a decade or two ago). Kids are getting bigger, sooner, with other kids staying smaller. It leads to some awful situations. The younger ones aren't totally sure of how to hit or take a hit yet, either, so things will get messy. I always look at someone funny when they say "that QB is so tiny." Normally it's not that the QB is tiny. It's that they're standing next to some 300-400 pound slab, or alongside a 6'5" WR.

    Yeah, it can theoretically contribute to a slight extra dip in BP, which in the elderly is something that leads to falls. It's not one of those dire things, but it's something to think about. The worst interactions tend to be with statins (Lipitor, etc.).

    Precisely. We've had patients that decided on one diet or another because they liked the color on the website, or because the "lady on the book" looked like a relative of theirs. What matters is a health, helpful outcome :)

    I know lisinopril has no grapefruit interactions, and don't think steroids do. Amlodipine definitely does. Take a gander at the label or the Rx insert. (ETA: It's not utterly deadly, just can alter the way the medication works depending on how much juice she has and how sensitive she is to the medication. Sorry; didn't mean to sound doomsday-y.)

    I don't THINK you are on medication, Suzanimal , but be careful if you are: grapefruit interacts with a significant number of pharmaceutical drugs.

    It would have been out of line or in poor taste if Trump had been saying Lewis "should have done something" back then. That would be a much narrower debate to be able to have. This is akin to Hillary, however, deciding that some single case she helped out on turned out justly and harping on that the rest of her life. It has very little bearing on what's happening NOW, and what's within the given person's sphere of influence. Doing something good, or even multiple good somethings, does not make you immune from future criticism (especially when it's unrelated to the past good deed). There was a time when this was common sense. You can respect someone for doing something you admire, and also fundamentally disagree with some other aspect of their life.

    I am type A, I did pretty good on a mostly vegetarian diet but I do much better on paleo. I don't think that blood type is a fool proof indicator of what your diet should be, but it may very well be that people with certain blood types tend to be able to handle certain types of foods better than others because the tend to come from certain groups of people who were exposed to those foods. So it could be an indicator of what type of foods you can handle, but it might not work for everybody. Ultimately I think that the healthiest diet goes back to what our ancestors ate a long time ago. But I think what happened is that over time, as we developed agriculture and such some humans were exposed to grains or dairy and some groups of people are more evolved to eat these things than others. I do ok eating vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains, dairy and occasional fish, but I do much better eating wild or pastured meats and vegetables and fruit. I think pretty much everybody runs more optimally on wild or pastured meats, vegetables and fruits, nuts and I still eat pastured dairy, but some people are able to handle grains and dairy better than others.
