re: Who here has had a tonsillectomy as an adult? - jguidroz
I had mine out at 32 or 33. I took none of the prescribed pain medicine after the surgery. Granted I had emergency surgery a week later for something completely unrelated to the tonsillectomy that included a 3 day hospital stay. The recovery from the emergency surgery was much, much worse than the t...

They are also playing it up as a majority of the companies affected by this Prop, if it passes, will be corporations outside of Oregon. Pretty sure this was the first thing I marked on my ballot with a no vote....

re: looking to get into cycling -- bike advice - jguidroz
Raleigh is a good brand. I would recommend a cyclocross/gravel bike. You can fit much wider tires than you can on road bikes, are equally capable on pavement, and work well on single track. If it's mostly flat where you live, I'd go for simplicity and buy a singlespeed cyclocross bike. Simple se...

re: O/U Shooters - jguidroz
Usually run the same choke in each barrel, unless I feel like challenging myself, then I'll have a tighter choke in the top barrel. I typically shoot the bottom barrel first, unless I have a different choke in the top barrel, then I'll shoot the top barrel first when the first target is farther away...

re: What tire and pressure do you run on your road bike? - jguidroz
I race on a set of tubulars, and it's quite hard to beat the ride quality of tubulars with clinchers. That said, when I race on clinchers, I'm now racing Turbo Cottons, and these very much equal the feel of tubular tires with the added bonus of being very fast with very good grip....

re: What tire and pressure do you run on your road bike? - jguidroz
PSI depends on width of tire, weight, and quality of road you are riding. With that said, I'm usually somewhere between 65psi (28c tubeless tires) to 95psi (TT race on a quality road)....

re: Any posters out there that feel their student loan debt is "unjust"? - jguidroz
Unjust? No, I took the money out to go to school. The only reason I haven't paid off my student loans is because my interest rate is < 2%. I have better uses for that money right now. Would I like someone to just say "Hey, you don't owe this money anymore?" Of course, who turns down free mone...
