poker ruined by internets by MillMan (4.00 / 1) #1 Sat Jul 28, 2007 at 11:27:29 PM EST
meh, five years ago maybe 100 people knew what the WSOP was.

I've worn 34" waist jeans for years. I once measured my waist: 37".

When I'm imprisoned as an enemy combatant, will you blog about it?

I got measured for a tux last week by cam (4.00 / 1) #2 Sun Jul 29, 2007 at 06:18:15 AM EST
my waist was 36 inches. The pants that fit me were 32-34. Someone is lying, and I doubt it is the measuring tape.

men are vain too by yankeehack (4.00 / 1) #3 Sun Jul 29, 2007 at 07:25:10 AM EST
at least now you can feel the pain of what women have to go through.

I'm a size 2 in most stores.

but you're itty-bitty! by R343L (4.00 / 1) #5 Sun Jul 29, 2007 at 08:36:33 AM EST
but is it "sometimes 2, sometimes 0 and sometimes 4"? Because that is what sucks about women's sizes.

The mirror tells me what I want to know or don't want to know.

I have a pair for 46 or 48s that are tight on me.  The 44s I have though are baggy.  Not really sure what size I am.

I heard a review of Yiddish Policeman's Union ... by lm (4.00 / 1) #8 Mon Jul 30, 2007 at 04:16:52 AM EST
... on NPR a few months ago. It sounded like an interesting book. But for some reason, I have trouble suspending disbelief for the whole alternate history thing.

Normally that's the sub-genre of SF that seems to have the most crossover appeal. (Philip Roth's "The Plot Against America", Kingsley Amis' "The Alteration", Stephen Fry's "Making History", Robert Harris' "Fatherland" etc.)

I don't think I'm in the crossover market by lm (4.00 / 1) #10 Mon Jul 30, 2007 at 04:51:57 AM EST
I cut my teeth on Heinlein and Tolkein before I reached a double digit age.

Simple test for dehydration by ks1178 (4.00 / 1) #11 Mon Jul 30, 2007 at 09:39:11 AM EST
If you think your weight loss is mostly because of dehydration, take a piss (or pay attention to the last time you do) prior to weighing yourself. Also pay attention the rest of the day as well to see how much it varies.

Urine normally goes from clear, to a dark yellow/brown color. The clearer it is, the larger percentage of water is in your system, the darker it is, the less amount of water is in your system.

If the stream is clear, you're definately not dehydrated.

If it is a lightish yellow, clear color you are probably just about right.

If it is a dark yellow, almost brown, you are definately dehydrated.

If it's another color not in that progression of clear, light yellow, dark yellow/brownish you're either taking some wierd food coloring that's not getting washed out (but that usually shows up in fecal samples, not urine) or you need to see a doctor immediately.

Helps if you know what shade of white/yellow your urine normally is when determining dehydration levels.

But otherwise other colours are bad.
