Re: The Battle Against Genetics

Reading BeerJ spouting off brings me back to when I knew everything and understanding people's choices was so simple, logical, and tidy.

Re: Bogatyr's home remedies for poison ivy/oak?

If you're really miserable with the rash, oral corticosteroids can knock it out fast. It's not medicine to be trifled with but I don't think a Medrol pack one in a blue moon is going to hurt me. But I haven't had to resort to cortisone since discovering the Tecnu products. I think this one is the ge...

Re: Bogatyr's home remedies for poison ivy/oak?

The Tecnu products are pure gold. They used to be hard to find, you can get them at most drug stores now. I am told washing off with Tecnu was daily SOP for linemen down south, who'd be hacking through the shit daily. The soap is very good for getting the stubborn oil off of you, that's at least hal...

Re: Ring pullups vs regular pullups

These plus a $5 pair of lashing straps will work fine: http://www.seattlemarine.net/productcart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=0&idproduct=8929 but at Dicks you can get a set of 6" rings for $60 now so at this point it's not a big savings. You can also use D-ring handles made for swing sets etc., which a...

Didn't read all of the above but my advice is don't get too freaked out about it. Almost everybody hurts their back, be smart but don't be too afraid.

Re: I want to mix up my own pre-workout drink. What should it be?

Preworkout drinks - much more important than postworkout, but not for carbs, not for most people. A car doesn't go any faster on a full tank of gas than a half full tank of gas, it doesn't matter as long as you don't run out of gas. Most people don't run out of carbs during their workouts.

Re: Wondering about your experiences with Obama care (ACA)

That's a good post, Dano. This is a highly philosophical discussion of principles. The way I see it, the two competing attributes you're trying to balance are completeness and simplicity.
