We have a lot of diabetics around here....I'm pretty lucky for insulin, it's like $90 for three months. It's kind of annoying having to pay the brandname surcharge when there are no generics even available, but at least I can do mailorder now.Pump supplies though, good lord. I think I'm spending $2500 a year now, with the CGM.Dexcom CGM is pretty awesome. Quite accurate, good response time, comfortable, stays good for 7-10 days no problem. Not perfect, but a lot better...
I messed up my plug but fortunately it's pretty robust and I managed to bend it back into shape.I finally caved and brought my over the ear headphones with me on my last long flight. So worth it. I hate having earbuds in for hours at a time.
Those things are awesome for traveling. I was using the USB outlet on the plane to recharge mine The 777 headphone port is in a really stupid place. Why would you have a plug go perpendicular to the armrest and stick into the seat area? It's just asking to get guillotined by your leg. Just put the stupid thing on the headrest where all the other infotainment stuff is.
The real Eames is a short chair. Even the "bigger" version is only two inches taller. They're not really designed to support your head unless you slouch. Can't say about that particular knockoff, but even the real ones are a lot more comfortable after they break in for a bit. The foam gets more pliable, the shock mounts give you more flex. It's pretty rigid out of the box, but you get just enough flexion to make a big difference in comfort. Some of the knockoffs have...
Feels > reals.
Five Thirty Eight is only giving Hillary a 38% chance of getting 50% of the vote, based on current polling anyway.
This is one of the first results on Google for Eames knock-offs, so it kind of makes sense. No doubt many of them are shills (a couple of these companies are notorious for planting forum posts), but there are a lot of real people who are interested in knockoffs.Plycrafts are pretty obviously not Eames though, at least for anyone who is going to recognize an Eames.I guess some people might just like the Plycraft on its own merits, but it's hard to figure there isn't...
Why not just find a different chair at that point? There are plenty of comfortable chairs that aren't trying to be an Eames, but failing at it. Plycrafts to me look like someone tried to copy the Eames but didn't understand what made the design work in the first place. It's some weird Frankenstein chair. The proportions don't end up working, and the effect is jarring. Doubly so for people who are expecting the traditional Eames proportions.
I mean really, watch a Trump rally. "BUILD THAT WALL" turned into a rallying cry for a reason. There's a big community of people who really want to see that happen, whether it's rallying against an Other or genuine concern about immigration. These aren't people who are expecting a pivot to nuance.The Internet alt-right community loves to think that Trump is some kind of strategic master and every action is carefully calculated. I never believed that, and the last...
I don't expect anyone would flip to Clinton, but it could certainly drain some enthusiasm from one of Trump's few solid bases of support. There's a good number of people who put up with Trump's shenanigans because they want to see the Wall and deportation. If they see that he's willing to ease up on that, they might just not show up.But even if you hand Trump the ~40% that are still on his side, is this really going to pull in a lot of votes? He was at 50% before the...
