i am sure you have heard this before, but when I am counseling with young men I tell them, when she asks, "does this outfit make me look fat", the only safe answer is, "does this hat make me look stupid".

What are they suppose to do go back to analog? Its faster, probably cheaper and the infrastructure already exists (servers). Not to mention all of the analog hardware can be recycled.

Except most women will look you in the eye and answer "YES". Probably not the same answer they are expecting with their outfit.

Then again if your hat said "Hold my beer", that probably answers why you'd be saying "Yes" to her question in the first place!

i absolutely hate beer. never did enjoy the taste. I was a heavy, but only occasional, UV blue vodka drinker for many year. I would walk into a bar and say "give me 12 shots of UV blue in a tall glass. That was my limit for 1 hour of drinking. Anything more and I would puke.

It's a good thing you didn't have a hat that said, "hold my tall glass of 12 shots of UV Blue"

Re: why do IT people insist on internet communication?

I was never a beer drinker. It was pointless to me. Went in yellow and foamy. Came out yellow and foamy. I didn't see where I was doing anything with it. Now that my liver is precariously poised, I can't have any liquor at all. But I don't miss it.

Guinness isn't yellow, and tastes far better than "yellow" beer.

Richard,


I once asked my doctor about drinking those 12 shots at once on an occasional basis and how it would affect my liver and he told me that I had nothing to worry about because the liver is a self recovering organ, and as long as I wasn't doing it on a daily basis I was safe from cirrosis of the liver. I'm not sure I was ever convinced.

Re: why do IT people insist on internet communication?

True, the liver CAN heal. But folks with Non-Alcoholic Steato-Hepatitis (NASH, they call it) must lay off the alcohol so the liver CAN heal. I wasn't a drinker before anyway, but in this case alcohol would interfere with the healing.

Re: why do IT people insist on internet communication?

I hoped for a long time that my prostate would heal, but it took a bit of surgery to take care of my BPH. I had a TURP. Those are both common enough medical terms that you should be able to figure them out. Hint: A "TURP" is also colloquially known as a "Roto-Rooter" job. Go ahead and cringe if you wish. I did when that was first recommended.

Then of course everyone knows why beer goes through you so fast. It does not have to stop at the kidneys to change color.

I've had the prostate biopsy (12) cores, so yeah the cringe factor is at a 12
