You know, that is not such an insane idea! A friend of mine has an implant in his spine which delivers pulses of carefully modulated interference to any pain signal traveling through its region of affect. It basically cancels out pain signals so that he can continue about his normal life, without having to be constantly medicated beyond all hope of reason. Due to some shady moments in his past, his tolerance for certain pharmaceutical products is gigantic, and the amounts he was on before the implant was installed were nothing short of astounding, if not outright terrifying.

Hes much better now. Of course, hes a bloody cyborg, so he would be

LOL. Yeah, my only other option would be an operation, but they are not guaranteed. I have seen too many people go in and come out worse. That scares the hell outta me!



Bathtime and I guess I'll get dressed for the day. Be back in a while.

Yes, that is a consideration worth making. Given that my pal could barely move normally at all without the surgery however, it was something he considered worth doing. Hes only just into his thirties properly, so he figured it would be worth the risk, since his only other option was a total failure of his ability to move independently within five years!

Its all about risk and reward, and how you value each!

Enjoy your bath!

Brought a book in with me.
The evil demons are about to be released upon the world and the feary queen and others are trying to stop it from happening. LOL

Hi All,

Just popping in to say Hi. I haven't had a chance to go back and see what I have missed. I hope everyone is doing well.

Another very busy day for me.

Hopefully I'll be able to stop in later today and chat if anyone is around.

Be Well
Crappiekat

Pardon my ignorance, but...WHO?

Mark's having problems with numbness in his face and arm again. He never got over the dizziness crap. He feels better now but...sigh.
Worrisome. He has an appointment soon with a neurologist, has a regular doc, diabetes specialist etc. I wish someone would help him. Man, if it's not him it's Mom. If it's not him or Mom it's me. Would be so nice not to have so many things to worry about.



Sorry don't mean to be all doom and gloom. Not a very good day I guess. Hope I'll feel better later when I go out.

Haha... sorry, I forget that not everyone reads the books I read!

www.jim-butcher.com...

Harry Dresden is the protagonist in a series of books by Jim Butcher (who writes some badass books). The character Harry Dresden, is a wizard, and a private investigator. I believe that says all that must be said about it! I highly recommend that you check out the series of books.

A word of warning though. Do not, I repeat do NOT watch the awful television show that was made around these books. The show did the books no justice what so ever, and was terrible in its own right!

Yep, I agree. The Dresden series are pretty good and the TV series (thankfully one season) was pretty bad. There was no chemistry with the cast, the writers using Hollywood license mauled storylines.

But I do have the TV series to thank as I had never read any of Butchers books before and once I saw that the show was based off an author, I had to check it out. It's a rare event that a movie/show is as good as the book.

Another case in point, Douglas Addams "Hitch Hikers Guide" series. Two awful attempts to put that onto film, both of which are only slightly entertaining.

Stephen King's "The Strand" did come pretty close during the transfer from written prose to film, but they totally destroyed the ending during the re-write.

Hi guys

Well got the call from the mechanic today, £1000 more or less to fix the wife's car. So not as bad as I thought


We're toying with the idea of fixing it and part exchanging for something newer, we'll see.

@ True......................You come up with that paint idea and I want in from the very beginning bro.

Hi Kat

Just in and out myself. Recovering from a day of hard work yesterday. Hard for me, maybe not so much for a twenty something. A project at my buds house (his second garage) that I'm helping on is almost complete. Only have 1/2 the ceiling to hang and he's being obstinate about things.

Every one helping wants to drop the joists a bit using additional lumber to cover up all the conduit and piping from the boiler...but no! He insists he likes it! LOL

What a pain in the @$$!

Our way would be the easiest...his way will be ugly. But it's his house, so the hell with it. It's not like I earn a paycheck from him. I do it for fun.

And I can always say "I told ya so!" LOL

If I ever get any traction with it, I will let you know dude!

That is, assuming I do not use whatever compound makes the effect possible to power some sort of nightmarish powered armour suit, and go merrily bludgeoning unworthy authority figures from behind its mighty defences....

Not the sort of thing that is likely to happen though, so yeah... I will let you know how that turns out!

True, those books sound interesting. After I finish the series I'm currently reading, I have a book that I purchased that Cody recommended some time ago that I will be reading. Maybe I'll check out your books after that. Then again I have quite a pile waiting to be read so it may be a while yet. LOL

I said UNWORTHY authority figures. Tsk tsk TDawg! I would have thought you knew by now, that I know a good thing when I see it!

They are really good books Night Star! If you like tales of magic, beings from the fey realms that exist beside our own, mystery and suspense, and an emotional roller coaster to boot, then you will love them!

If it takes you a while to get round to them, just let me know when you finish the first one. Chatting Dresden with people who really like the myth and magic element of literature is always a blast!

Never mind me...I have to be a grumpy old bastidgh from time to time. Mind you, it's all in fun! Never take it personal and please dish it back. I haven't had a challenge in a while.

a reply to: Night Star

Stop buying books Woman! Get them from your local library. That way you are at least seeing your tax dollars at work.

And if you like a particular piece of work...then you can buy it.

And I agree with True. Magic and politics (I guess of the mystical realm), mayhem from time to time coupled with a good old fashioned detective genre. Ya can't go wrong in my book.

I buy my books at second hand stores or through a site where it costs like 2.99 and sometimes free shipping. Then I donate them and keep a few.
