    Going back to hoops... My new neighbor just put up a basketball hoop last week and we've been getting jumpers up every day after work. It's been great.

    White guy who played at a historically black college. Was the first white player in the conference's history. Said he had no idea it was a historically black college when he signed the letter of intent... He was just happy to get to play hoops in college.

    So funny that someone could show up to play and have no idea what kind of school it is. I had teammates at wake that before showing up had no idea that it was going to be difficult academically

    Yeah, he stayed. Enjoyed the experience. I guess he was a pretty religious dude back then, so I think they all had that in common. I think he ultimately played like 20 minutes a game. I'll have to ask him more about it, but I got the sense that it was more about getting a lot of funny looks when he checked into games than any real animosity.

    Super nice guy, but he's kind of an introvert. I'll have to push him for more details.

    He's a guard. Has put on some weight, but still has a smooth jumper.

    I know Rogan gets a lot of hate, most well deserved, but I saw he had a podcast with Matty Matheson. That guy is a trip. Had some crazy stories to tell about his time partying. Heís been sober for 9 years now. There are a few parts where Rogan goes off on his covid spiel which is incredibly annoying but Matty was a treat to listen to.

    People complain about the cost for orphan drugs and I donít think realize that when they are produced that cost isnít necessarily affiliated with the research cost or time commitment but instead the manufacturing process. Itís expensive as hell to make a drug that goes into someoneís body, the strictest requirements and cleanest procedures.

  16. #736
    Well taxpayers paid a fuckton for the primary research behind those orphan drugs a lot of the time

  17. #737
    socialize the costs, privatize the gains amirite?

    I knew it would be tough academically but my first night in the dorm was the first time I had heard the nickname Work Forest or that it had just showed up on some survey as having the second hardest workload in the country.

    Turns out it wasnít Lyme, it was rabies. And it wasnít a tick, it was a raccoon, which explains why my freezer is all torn up after putting it in there in case it needed to be tested later.

    Do they still give you shots in the abdomen for rabies? That always terrified me as a kid when my parents told me that was the treatment.
