Life is Hard. Wear a Helmet

Virginia State Constitution: Article 1; Section 13

P.S. - Mondays still suck

Got bogged down yesterday, and I'm slammed today.

You get cool music.




Don't do drugs, m'kay?

Sunday morning sleep-in #143

Watched Ex Machina last night. Would highly recommend!

It's one of those movies you have to pay attention to. If you're looking for some explosions and a good fight scene, go rent a copy of Batman or something.
If you're looking for good dialogue and interesting plot twists, this is the movie for you.

Of course, paying attention is easy when Sweden's Alicia Vikander is on the screen. (Can you say Hump Day Rule 5?)




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After the movie, it was bacon time. (bacon cheeseburgers)

While I was frying up the bacon, Miss B was sitting in the dining room listening to the 80's show on Birmingham's 96.5 FM. and this song came on.

Totally appropriate to bacon. Bacon is meat-candy.

Saturday Morning Coffee #162

Made it home Friday night. It was touch-and-go there for a bit.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Miss B always had this dream about what it would be like after I retired. It obviously involved a little white picket fence and having me stroll through the door every evening saying, "Honey! I'm home!" at about 1730 or so.

I can arrange the fence, but I don't know if I'll ever have a job that has me home every evening.

What Day Is It?

A math problem:

While working in Georgia under sunny skies and a triple-digit heat index, MSgt B drinks two half-liter (16.9 FL OZ) bottles of water for every one 12 FL OZ bottle of Gatorade every hour. He works 8 hours outdoors and spends four hours driving around in his truck.
How many times does MSgt B pee in a 12 hour period?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Motrin, coffee and cigarettes.


The breakfast of former champions.

Nothing beats water for keeping yourself hydrated. You can drink the sport drinks and such, but make sure you drink water at the same time. You only need so much extra salt and sugar in your water, and it's less than you think.

Learn the symptoms of heat stress and heat stroke. If you are working with someone who begins to show these symptoms, get them into the shade or some air conditioning and make sure they drink some fluids. Loosen or remove any extra clothing items to allow more skin surface area to be exposed to increase the rate of sweat evaporation.
