    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
    The darkness drops again; but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

    What a messed up, sometimes depressing thread.

    I think I drink more now than I did in college (45). It's probably due to being in real estate. From what I can tell from real estate facebook groups, we're all a bunch of alcoholics. I enjoy the hell out of 2-3 beers, but rarely go beyond that.

    What's throwing me for a loop is finding out that my hips are fucked a week ago (posted in gimps). I have not yet learned how to take it back a notch, skiing or biking. In fact, I think when people do take it back a notch, that's when they get hurt, when they're tentative. Currently terrified that whatever approach I take with my hips, my skiing will take several steps back, in which case I'm not sure how much enjoyment I will derive from it. That will definitely fuck with me in a way that I have not yet experienced.

    Also, getting ear wax removed is a nearly religious experience and more than one doctor has told me never to use Q-tips.

    Age 45 was when life really started to hurt.
    And 2-3 beers? Pfft. You are fine. But then again, drunks always say they "only had a couple", occifer.

    They all say that without thinking, or to dumb it down to the lowest common denominator. As someone with narrow ear canals and suffers more than most with infections and blockage since I was a little kid: USE Q-TIPS!!!!!! But it has to be daily.

    I stopped having to get them cleaned 4x a year once I started to clean them after the daily shower. If you wait until they are blocked, then you are wadding it all up and making it worse, yes. (Unless you use my advanced spin technique which is another story) Which is why they say don't use Q-tips. And you'd have to be an idiot to damage your eardrum doing it yourself, that's another lame excuse. Just don't do it on a bumpy bus or while biking and you'll be fine.

    Sorry to hear about yer hips though.

    I dunno... I think it's an okay thread. I think it has given us all an opportunity to examine where we are and to see we aren't alone. Just another phase of life we all have to address at sometime or another. Things to learn about, accept, adjust to and laugh about.

    Agreed, I guess that's why I threw the "sometimes" in there

    "The total addressable market (TAM) for our autonomous ear-cleaning services is approximately 7 billion people, offering up to $140 billion in annual revenue potential at $5 per cleaning & a baseline of quarterly servicing. The opportunity presented by WeAR at valuations below a billion USD is difficult to overstate."
