re: How do you fight men bigger than you? - StringedInstruments
I didn’t read the whole thread yet but a military friend of mine told me when in hand to hand combat with someone bigger than you, go for the ear. Takes about 25 pounds of force to rip an ear off and losing a body part will stifle someone quickly. ...

6 miles. 62 minutes. Included a 300 foot hill that was a mile long then rolling hills the rest of the way. Didn’t walk once. Proud of this one. ...

[quote] Can't find a decent house under $750k. And property tax is about $12k a year for a house like that.[/quote] Is Tacoma that much better? EDIT - Turns out Tacoma is much, much better and isn't impacted by the ridiculous Seattle home prices. It's also on track to having one of the highes...

re: The wife and I made a difficult decision this weekend - StringedInstruments
[quote] I generally agree with a lot of your post, except for this. The list of good jobs you can get without some form of higher ed is getting smaller and smaller every day.[/quote] And opportunity gaps exist and it's not just a racial issue. Students who go to a good four year university who c...

re: The wife and I made a difficult decision this weekend - StringedInstruments
Never said that it was a hardship. Just seems like a lot in this thread are saying “good” when pointing out that it’s harder to start a career with debt than not. ...

re: The wife and I made a difficult decision this weekend - StringedInstruments
This thread has been fascinating. I think for me, there's no reason for parents to sacrifice their own well-being for their kids' tertiary education. As many have pointed out already though, it's most likely the case that the parents did not plan well enough to provide their kids with money or r...

re: Last Nights Cardinals v Chargers game had 32 penalties called - StringedInstruments
I think the big question that’s going to come up is how many people follow football because they actually love the game vs how many people follow football because they gamble, play fantasy football, or just see it as an opportunity to have friends over. I mean, I know when we host parties to watc...

re: Peeling hard boiled eggs - StringedInstruments
Serious Eats did an experiment to solve the hard boiled egg problem and found that eggs need to reach 212 degrees to separate the shell from the white but also need to be slow cooked to have the best yolk consistency. They suggested putting eggs into boiling water* and boil for one minute. Then ...

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - StringedInstruments
At what point does splitting up/taking breaks during a long run nullify the run's status as a "long run"? For example, there's a half marathon scheduled on the day of my 20 mile run. I was thinking about running 3 miles as a warm up, running the half, and then running 4 miles to finish the 20 mi...

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - StringedInstruments
Another tough run for me. I’m hoping I’m not the one in the thread that ends up saying maybe next year. 6.5 miles. Wanted to do 9 but was dead on my feet after being up and down with the baby last night. 13 mile week. Next week is scheduled for 23 and I’m going to get it. ...

re: How many of you baws are overweight? (chart) - StringedInstruments
I'm overweight by about 8 pounds. They're coming off though. What amazes me is that during my junior and senior years of high school, my football coaches encouraged and enabled me to become obese. Yeah, yeah. I was putting on muscle and all that. But I had no business going over 200 pounds at my...
