Re: Acetubular Hip Dysplasia

She may want to look into hip resurfacing rather than hip replacement. There have been a couple threads on that here (including my own). Resurfacing has the advantage of leaving the femur more or...

Re: Reaction Balls for agility

I've got one and have used it in the past -- definitely challenging. I don't know whether there is science that supports the idea that using one "improves" reaction time, but if it's fun and there's...

Re: Heard in the Office Today

The best part of joint operations with Canadian and Australian ships was being invited to their wardroom for "operational planning" -- except for the even better post-op "review."

Stalls? They have stalls now? In my day, there was just a row of commodes. . . .

Re: sleep apnea?

If you truly cannot tolerate a CPAP, most insurers will (after a fight) pay for a dental appliance. There are several varieties available. One is the Silent Nite appliance. Essentially, it pulls...

Re: How Tough are You?

When I was in the Navy, my best friend was a guy who had been a damage controllman in an aircraft carrier on Yankee Station off the coast of North Vietnam. In addition to having to fight a humongous...

Re: Hip Resurfacing

So, Spencer ( :super: ), I guess Floyd Landis has nothing on you! :)

Sounds like great fun. I'm glad to hear you're doing so well.

Re: Distal clavical excision?

I don't know what kind of demands the fire academy will place on you. I do know that I was able to pick up some fairly heavy boxes within a couple weeks. The doctor never found out about that,...

Re: Distal clavical excision?

I had that surgery. (FYI, I seem to be a poster child for virtually every form of orthopedic surgery -- not that I wanted to be.)

It's been quite a while, but as I recall it was one of the easier...

Another thing to keep in mind is that it is more common than you might think for people to think they have a foot on the brake when it is actually on the accelerator -- even people who don't have...

Re: PULL-UPS: Breaking through a plateau

Re: Paleo for dogs!

COOKED bones are bad for dogs because they splinter when they break -- raw bones break into small chunks instead.

Re: question on rowing

You were pulling at slightly below a 1:40/500 meter split. That's respectable for interval work, particularly if you don't have much experience on the C2.

Re: weird foot lump appeared

For what it's worth, I had a similar thing happen many years ago. It was diagnosed as a ganglionic cyst. I tended to pull the top laces on my running shoes pretty tight, and the cyst was right...

Re: Insane nunchaku skills.

Jamie, you are spot on. It looks to me as if he has, very creatively, I might add, applied baton twirling with nunchaku. The guy is very athletic and coordinated and must have spent hundreds of...

Re: Soldier mom plans to report for duty with kids

All of this is moot, because there were reports this morning that she is going to be discharged. That being said:



No, the military is not making him move. The Army is indifferent to whether he...

Re: Soldier mom plans to report for duty with kids

I think that the focus here is on the wrong party. Regardless of her prior appeals, the woman has reported for duty. The point is that she showed up with her kids.

The real issue is the husband:...

Re: Paleo for dogs!

We have been doing this for about three years now. Whole chickens (sold in a two-pack) are $.69/lb at Costco. A really good cleaver is helpful -- that's a little more expensive. :) We raw-feed...
