1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    You're asking the wrong question. You should be asking how to stop caring.

    It's weird cuz it feels perfectly fine in the morning, but it gets progressively worse throughout the day. I can't for the life of me figure out what the issue is. Should I get an x ray or sth?

    It's an interesting thing because studies indicate that squatting correctly significantly reduces knee problems down the road but squatting poorly significantly increases them. If you actually do squats to parallel, it really builds the supporting musculature around the knee and is not prone to injury. Squatting deep also prevents you from loading up way too much weight If you do the quarter-squat with too much weight bullshit that many people do, it's really terrible on your knees. Many people compound that by leaning forward on their toes (often wearing soft padded running shoes), which is extremely hard to do if you're going to the proper depth.


    I'm not a spring chicken anymore and I squat pretty heavy (close to 2x bodyweight and I'm not small) and my knees are bulletproof so far. Lifting actually seriously reduced knee problems that I had from sports in my 20s.

    Genetics.


    By my late 20s I had moved to cycling. Nice, non-impact circles ftw. Part of my issue was years of skating (which I have not done in decades now). Agree good form helps assistive muscles but it's the soft tissue damage that's the issue. Knees and shoulders for me.

    I dislike the expression "known issue." As of late I'm seeing students use it as an all-purpose synonym for "problem," as in "there is a known issue with Descartes' argument."

    I enjoy using it to say things like, "Issac was known issue of Abraham."

    And yes, I know those guys squat big weight to get those thighs
    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    But even without it cycling can get you some solid legs (especially if you are clipped in to the pedals so you can use all of the muscles).

    Cycling most certainly pumped up my entire lower body. Thing is I spent probably 25-35 hours a week on a bike back then and that's a deal breaker now.

    I just ate a spicy chicken sandwich to where now I'm like "Uh oh I think my esophagus is disintegrating before my very eyes!" (Not literally before my eyes that is just a expression.)

    Has anyone else noticed a huge decline in the quality of Wendy's spicy chicken sandwiches? I feel like 5 years ago they were way better. Now they are smaller and lack the spicy crispiness of the originals.

    Going to the Gastro doc in a bit. I've become concerned that I might have gotten cancer of something, like the throat, or stomach or something.

    What are your symptoms?

    Could be acid reflux, gastritis or other mild problems.

    Sounds like a hybrid of GRID and Ebola to me.
