Lets put a nail in the BMI coffin.
 
There is no doubt obesity is associated with may of the chronic diseases we suffer from today. But, often, when we try to create a standard or measurement that is meant to apply to 'everyone' it ends up being so inexact as to actually be meaningless at best, or harmful at worst. My question for you — how do you personally gauge your weight and body size? Or, what do you use instead to measure your 'health' besides just your BMI?
If BMI (body mass index) is a "deeply flawed measure of health," why should Americans with higher BMIs pay more for health insurance?

Not sure what people have against the "Genetically Modified Overweight" people. They're just as God made them.

How to deal with telemarketer (I'm on the do not call list AND I've Opted out with the guys several times - I'm not a jerk)

I put the phone up to my tablet and the telemarketer got to hear Mike from Better Call Saul talk about what happened to his son.
Season One, episode 6 "Five-O"

My late poodle was such a gentleman about it, though.  He would whine under his breath almost like he was whispering real close to my head and then when I'd pop open one eye he noticed and would then start revolving in circles so I'd pop up quick to let him out.  Since he passed I can sleep in now, but I'd rather have his little whispers back, though.

I love my cat, but sometime he can be a real jerk. He just picked this starter pot up and threw it in the ground.

But that's just typical of most cats - they love to be jerks!

Human? Human? We'll see about that.
Introduction
I am/have been/will be a writer, cyclist, programmer, data storage specialist, thinker, fanatic, Girevik, Investor, accomplished sailor and gentleman.
I may not be fully human.

I'm observant and have been accused of thinking about things from a slightly skewed perspective, combined with a keen eye for the obscure. I'm often allowed a tactical advantage from my unique perspective and a ferocious drive.

I identify strongly with the INTJ community, and most people I meet would argue against that. 

I have very few friends, though those that I call friends I trust completely.

I have found the most amazing woman on this planet and she's ALL MINE. 
As of May 25th, 2014, she is officially mine.  (Not that I'm possessive, or anything)

"

“I’m a modern man, a man for the millennium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multi-cultural, post-modern deconstruction that is anatomically and ecologically incorrect. I've been up linked and downloaded, I've been inputted and outsourced, I know the upside of downsizing, I know the downside of upgrading. I’m a high-tech low-life. A cutting edge, state-of-the-art bi-coastal multi-tasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond! 
I’m new wave, but I’m old school and my inner child is outward bound. I’m a hot-wired, heat seeking, warm-hearted cool customer, voice activated and bio-degradable. I interface with my database, my database is in cyberspace, so I’m interactive, I’m hyperactive and from time to time I’m radioactive. 

Behind the eight ball, ahead of the curve, ridin the wave, dodgin' the bullet and pushin' the envelope. I’m on-point, on-task, on-message and off drugs. I’ve got no need for coke and speed. I've got no urge to binge and purge. I’m in-the-moment, on-the-edge, over-the-top and under-the-radar. A high-concept, low-profile, medium-range ballistic missionary. A street-wise smart bomb. A top-gun bottom feeder. I wear power ties, I tell power lies, I take power naps and run victory laps. I’m a totally ongoing big-foot, slam-dunk, rainmaker with a pro-active outreach. A raging workaholic. A working rageaholic. Out of rehab and in denial! "

It's hard to trust anyone these days. Everyone has a story about being ripped off by a mechanic or some other service. When you find a company you trust, it's almost like you shouldn't share. "I don't want them to get too busy to take care of me" The crew at Double A's is top notch. They know what their doing, the work is done very well, and quickly, and the price is value. Have you ever been given and estimate for repair and had the actual bill come in less? Really?!? I have. The work was easier and the parts were cheaper than the expected and they charged me less. That's the action of an honest company, and I won't take my vehicles anywhere else.

This easy to miss bar has become one our go to places for good food and fun. The decor is modern rustic, read that as rustic looking but clean and comfortable. Customer service is a big issue for me, and the team there always greets us when we come in, and says goodbye when we're done. The food and drink recommendations have all been spot on. Fish and chips - Winner! Free bacon, yes, free bacon with a drink order (on Tuesdays) Food - Great! Customer Service - Great! Atmosphere - Great! Other Patrons - Full range of people, with everyone having fun. Price - Great! Know you know why we keep coming back. (Ingress note - Stuck Junction is right at the heart of the mission.)

Everything about this hotel is perfect. The rooms are well laid out, clean, and well decorated. The staff was gracious and wonderful to deal with. It's far enough from the core of Seaside to be relaxing, if that's what you choose, and close enough to walk when you want to hit the shops. We will be back.

This shop is exactly what a bike shop should be. After buying a few items that we forgot at home (vacation trip) and heading back out, I started having issues with my bike (not related to the store - user error), so we limped back and explained the issue to them. The mechanic knew exactly what I was talking about and knew exactly how to fix it. I was so pleased with my first experience that I didn't even ask what the repair would cost. I knew that I'd be treated fairly. Would you do this at an auto mechanic?!? The repair was done perfectly, and they charged about 1/2 of what I would have expected.
