re: Is Corpus Christi the biggest city that nobody thinks of as a big city? - Elephino
The surrounding towns that make up the metro area are quite small. Corpus has a larger population density that acttually lives in Corpus. There are 2 Naval Air Stations (Corpus and Kingsville). Most of the instructors from Kingsville commute from Corpus, as do a number of faculty from A&M Kingsville...

re: Baseball Game 3: MSU 7 vs LSU 11 | LSU SWEEPS!!! LSU SEC CO- CHAMPS!!! - Elephino
Radar doesn't seem to improve until 7:00-7:30. I'd hate to see a starting pitcher get warm, throw an inning or two, and then have an hour or two rain delay. They need to delay the start until they have the best possible window....

re: Are Kia automobiles trashy? How about Hyundai? - Elephino
I drive a Soul as my daily commuter and my wife has a new Sedona. The Hyundai and Kia warranties are great. My Soul is almost 5 years old with a daily 80+ mile commute. I finally changed the factory battery last month, not because it was dead, but because I figured time had to be running short. I...

re: St. John's Wort - Anxiety, mood enhancer - Elephino
The IPA won't interact with it. Alcohol can increase the production of CYP2E1, which is why alcohol and tylenol don't pair well. There are studies that show efficacy in mood enhancement with St. John's Wort. It might be something worth trying if you weren't taking any other medications....

re: OT old guys and MDs do you take a testosterone pill? NO, not "andro-GEL". - Elephino
Aromatase inhibitors will prevent the conversion of androgen to estrogen, but it isn't an effective long-term solution. Estrogen is required in men for things like maintaining bone mineral density. SARMs are being investigated for things like maintaining/increasing muscle mass, but they are still ...

re: OT old guys and MDs do you take a testosterone pill? NO, not "andro-GEL". - Elephino
Oxandrolone is by far one of the safest oral androgens (with regards to liver toxicity and the inability to be aromaticized to an estrogen), but it isn't commonly used to treat low T levels. It is more commonly used to treat muscle wasting diseases. To my recollection, there isn't an oral testoste...

Really hard to replace what we have. We live in a great community where everyone knows everyone, neighborhood pool, playground, and soccer field. We all hang out together socially.
