Went for my 6 month evaluation yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised.

A bit of background: In the last 6 months, I have changed my diet to all plant forms with minimal sugar (some incidental is always there). All my oil is olive or avocado and if I use dairy, it's 2%. The two years prior to December 2021, I had been on strict Keto.
Here at my numbers from yesterday.

Cholesterol 162 mg/dL 3 - 200 mg/dL
Triglycerides 113 mg/dL 0 - 150 mg/dL
HDL 48 mg/dl >=40 mg/dl
LDL Calculated 91 mg/dl

My numbers from December 2021

Cholesterol 226 mg/dL 3 - 200 mg/dL
Triglycerides 358 mg/dL 0 - 150 mg/dL
HDL 59 mg/dl >=40 mg/dl
LDL Calculated 95 mg/dl

I know which one I will be maintaining.

Fuck you Jack Del Rio

During a Wednesday press conference, Washington Commanders defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio referred to the January 6 insurrection as a “dustup at the Capitol.” Later in the day, he expressed remorse for downplaying the incident.

'Nuff said.

Maybe some company is working on this, but I have an idea

Why not employ miniature drones with an aerosol or some sort of spray that would incapacitate active shooters. I'm sure the logistics of how to utilize drones in this manner would be fairly easy to overcome.
Find the negatives.

After typing this, I found this web page...unfortunately, it is being developed for military bases only.
https://thecrimereport.org/2022/06/07/drone-technology-to-deter-active-shooters-gets-air-force-ok/

The U.S. Air Force has awarded defense technology developer ZeroEyes a $750,000 research grant to develop and deploy a “Drone-Robot Enabled Active Shooter Deterrence” at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota, using drones to respond to active shooter threats on the base, reports Yahoo Finance.

Deshaun Watson's attorney said what????????????????

Attorney for Browns’ Deshaun Watson says ‘happy endings’ are not a crime.
"I don’t know how many men are out there now that have had a massage that perhaps occasionally there was a happy ending," Hardin told the radio station. "Maybe there’s nobody in your listening audience that that ever happened to. I do want to point out, if that has happened, it’s not a crime. Unless you are paying somebody extra or so to give you some kind of sexual activity, it’s not a crime."

As news about Watson continues to swirl, Rusty Hardin agreed to address a number of questions about these cases in an interview recently with USA TODAY Sports, including why Watson brought non-disclosure agreements for women to sign at massage sessions and why he paid $5,000 to the owner of a massage spa in Houston.

The Cleveland Browns have signed Watson for $230 million dollars, all of it guaranteed.

All I have to say is

I was thinking how quaint is was that we once thought Russia/U.S.S.R was the

Why does gerrymandering always seem to favor the repugs?

Or am I looking at it through liberal colored glasses?

Listening to Weld tonite. Great live album by a great artist, Neil Young

If you haven't heard this yet, it's even better than Rust Never Sleeps. Very, very grungy...and the best version of Like a Hurricane that I have ever heard.

Do you have a dedicated listening room/theater?

I spend much of my free time listening to music in my 16 x 32 theater room. I would love to know if there are any "audiophiles" here on DU? What's in your room? What are your listening preferences? What are you listening to tonite?
I am, tonite, listening to Zappa's Civilization Phase III, one of the most complex albums ever created and a real workout for your system. I am loving it so much!
