    dude i know all this

    my internship is as a research economist, which is to say I'll be working with phds on actual research shit, which is why I think it will be a useful experience.

    i don't have any particular qualms on how getting a doctorate affects lifetime earnings.

    Yea, exactly. One of the reason I hate those minimalist shoes because if you're jacked to begin with it's going to fuck you up mechanically and not be an instant cure, and most people are already jacked. Yea, regular old Chuck Taylors are great and you can throw in your medical insoles. You should run your hip through some tests though, your feet are probably pronated because of your hips.

    I don't really remember Rippetoe saying that it's a crutch. AFAIK he recommends using it in SS.

    What we recommend in the office for folks doing at home BP monitoring is that they bring it either to their doctors office or to another BP monitor(some pharmacies have them) and just compare their reading to that one to make sure the readings are similar. I'm not familiar with that specific advice but assuming the cuff is a proper fit it should work. I would read the reviews and make sure other folks are getting accurate readings.

    Edit: just realized they are wrist cuffs. Those tend to be less accurate than arm cuffs. If you insist on a wrist cuff, make sure your wrist is at heart level when you take your pressure. But in general the more distal an artery, the less of a true reflection of your systemic blood pressure. Distal arteries usually have increase systolic pressure and decreased diastolic pressure.
