It's still bugging me that with all the years of research, we still have no cure.

Pandemic? Sure, we get a vaccine in less than a year. Cancer? Still working on it??

:angry::mad::(:crying:
Cancer is your own body killing itself. There is no simple cure or vaccine for cancer like you can develop for a virus.

Making treatments more effective is possible, but I don't think we'll ever have a "cure"

Morning Jeepers and Jeepettes. Have a great Tuesday!

A bit down today. Most of you already know that ovarian cancer took my wonderful wife early in 2020. Now, a very good friend of mine that has been battling prostate cancer, that is very aggressive, is having a hard time keeping it under control. The diagnosis was just over a year ago and the only treatments that were having any effect, were damaging his heart. I'm not ready to lose a good friend, too.
All - Get checked regularly and pay attention. I finally scheduled the colonoscopy and endoscopy procedures for this month.

Cancer is on the sucklist for sure. Thanks for the reminder. I'm overdue for my next colon photo session. (Colon cancer got my mother at a young(ish) age.)

Hang in there, Tim.

Mornin Jeeple! I didn't get my tire rotation done yesterday, the person pouring adult libations got heavy handed on Sunday night. I spent the day chugging water and craving food from the comforts of my bed. Doggo's were happy they had a nap buddy though. I'm off on Thursday, maybe I'll retry to do the task then (really, I'm just dreading having to herk that 37 back onto the tire carrier, dat bitch be thicc).

It's funny because it's true. Good luck

I babied it. I am not going to be the one to destroy his car by gunning it in the middle of a turn and then flying over the median when the Limited Slip Diff launches it straight forward. lol
There is NO way to baby a car like that!!! Years ago...I had the opportunity to drive a Ferrari 308 (don't remember the year but it was the last year with carbs). My wife's (at the time) uncle was a successful lawyer with a judge wife (in other words, they had stupid money). We were visiting and he wanted to take it out so asked if I wanted to ride along. I, of course, said sure! (No Brainer there!) Well, after he warmed it up, he pulled over, got out, and said...your turn. From the beginning of the entrance ramp to merging into traffic (which luckily there was none), I got that thing up to 150mph by simply stepping through the gears. I was not opening it up very much at all!! There was no way it felt like it was going that fast...

I mean yeah I stepped on it, but I didn't go wide open, lol. Much like when I drove a buddy's Trackhawk, I didn't want to really push it until I knew how to handle it.

Edit: Didn't want to be "That guy"
