Am I the only one who doesn't take TP and scrub back-n-forth with the same batch?

Like seriously, what do they think they are accomplishing?

I agree with the recent posts, I guess I fall into the optimal urinatior/non-inverted rectum category. While some here stand at the urinal 2-3x longer than me getting every last drop, it's the splattors & rectum explosions I worry about (diet). I'm thankful I do not eat w/e they do. Aside from that, there's that ONE over weight guy who goes in every morning and foul's up the place with a putrid rancid sweat/sh*t smell. And just recently, a new guy with a crusty beard scratches his face at the counter and leaves his curly face pubes all over the sink.

Curious of ages of above posters. If you're under 40, you shouldn't even be having this conversation. If you're over 40, do more kegels and fiber.

39.

I can **** like a racehorse, no problems there.

But I have an occasional fondness for gross, unhealthy fried foods. And those kick my *** (literally) unless I supplement with psyllium husk fiber capsules.

Fiber tablets and a **** load of water and I'm regular. I get plenty of fiber from bread but the tablets are just insurance.

Also, flushable wipes=greatest thing ever

If anyone complains about taking fiber, get these. Like eating Smarties.

I didn't climb to the top of the food chain to eat like a rabbit!!

I do love a fresh salad with garden vegetables though.

Well one day after my tonsil removal. my uvula is filled with blood and blocking my air way unless i sleep or sit a certain way. Doc says its normal for crazy big tonsils like mine. Other than that its not too bad. Feels like a bad sore throat.

33 here.

I take fiber because I was diagnosed with IBS at 19 years old.

EAD.

Interestingly enough, I'm reading this thread in the bathroom.

Takes a while. No inversion.
Built in book case, proper lighting to read, and the laptop to catch up on stuff like this thread...

My boss, the VP of technology at WPIX just resigned. Accepted a job with WABC, which is a nice step up.

For the past two years, I've been the #2 man on the engineering side of the TV station. Chris comes up with grandiose ideas, I figure out how to make them work.

His departure leaves something of a power vacuum, and it's been hinted at that he intends me to replace him.

Being the semi-boss is hard enough. The thought of sitting in the Big Chair* terrifies me.
* = this is a figurative term. We have an open office plan, and everyone has the same chairs. Well, we have comfier chairs in the control rooms where people sit for 4-6 hours straight during the news, but you know what I mean.

I'm scared.

Everyone is different. You will have your own brand of crazy to spin because it is you and not the other guy anymore. And your perspective will have a better understanding of what is technically possible, which should allow for some envelope stretching. The way you mix state of the art with quirky/campy because of your wit will make it pretty interesting. I'd like to see what you come up with when you have the reins (no pressure).

Can a bad O2 sensor cause my MS3'd Miata to have a rough idle and die while driving?

If it were tuned really badly I could see that happening. If your ego correction limitations are set right it shouldn't mess the mix enough to die. If you give it 30% authority and it's reading full rich I bet it would stall and die.

If they offer the position to you, take it. We all have confidence that you can handle it.

If they don't offer it to you, you have an "in" at WABC.
