  1. Just wanted to thank Tommy and all the others who contributed to this thread. Very valuable information. A good refresher for the first aid I learned as a Boy Scout and in the USN.
  2. Losing some weight might help a bit with your hip and knee. Hope those get on the mend for you while you shed the pounds.
  3. How is your keto diet going? I have some family members who are doing keto along with increasing their physical activity. It is working well for them. Except one who shed the pounds too fast and ended up in the hospital for gallbladder surgery.
  4. One valid use of a horn I learned while driving in the Cordillera mountains is when you are on a single lane mountain road you should use your horn as you approach a blind curve to warn any oncoming traffic. If you hear a response then you will need to slow down even further and decide when you meet who needs to back up to a place where the other one can safely pass.
  5. Glad to hear you are on the mend. Quite the triple wammy. Funny how cancer and heart problems often go together. Both my brother and I had a similar experience, heart and cancer health problems at the same time. For me I have been cancer free for over 9 years and my heart hasn't given out yet.
  6. The flu shot isn't for everyone. I am allergic. My first and only flu shot when I was in US Navy bootcamp resulted in both my hands and feet going numb. Seems that many of the flu vaccines are created using chicken eggs and as a child I was allergic to eggs. However it is is made must concentrate what I was allergic to.
  7. Check the settings on your TV. Some include a setting for sound delay so you can better match the video to the audio.
  8. Then the transfer didn't go through paypal. You transferred it directly from you bank to their bank account. Perhaps at some points in this transaction you were on a fake paypal website. I would never buy anything of any significant value without doing it in person or with a very reputable business that you can verify. What happened to you sounds similar to a common internet scam. https://www.experian.com/blogs/ask-experian/fbi-warns-of-scam-targeting-car-buyers/ Sorry to hear you got scammed.
  9. Arrest or kill a low or high level drug dealer and you have just created a job opportunity for the next one. Often in the US when there is a big take down of a major drug ring street violence will increase for a few months as the lower level drug gangs fight it out to see who gets the former dealers territory to become the next major drug dealer. This is a never ending cycle as long as drugs are illegal and their is a huge profit to made from the black market.
  10. That is why any crypto currencies you have on an exchange which are not being actively traded by you should be moved to a private wallet that you control the keys for rather than leaving it on an exchange. As the saying goes for crypto currencies. Not your keys not your crypto. Of course there are risks to holding your own keys where you can lose them so best do your research and understand the risks of both and how best to protect your crypto assets.
  11. Of course you should do your due diligence and understand what you are investing in. With regards to crypto as a techie, computer programmer, etc. I understand the technology but also understand how volatile the price can be on such a speculative asset. At 10 years old it has matured a great deal more than the early adopters thought it would. There now are a growing number of investment firms who are hedging their bets by obtaining small positions in bitcoin and some of the better established 'alt coins' as they are called.
  12. With the caveat to only invest money you can afford to lose, the price of bitcoin got down to $3150 USD last Nov 2018 and within the last month was back up to $14,000 USD. Currently trading at $9900. So you could have made a tidy profit.
  13. My family doctor recommended I see an orthopedist who after seeing xrays of my spine recommended the physical therapy. If that hadn't work, spinal injections with last resort of spinal surgery. I know several people who have had stem cell treatments for their spine which have worked for them to reduce back pain.
  14. Economic growth can effect population growth. For a very poor country economic growth which results in better infrastructure for water, food, power, etc. can increase population growth. But as the economy modernizes even further population growth starts declining.
  15. That works great until the one time when there is a glitch and the payment can't be made resulting in late fee's, etc. I like to pay at least 2-3 business days before a bill is due just to ensure I have time to resolve any payment issues if there is a glitch.
