  1. Doing 10 dives hopefully (+++++ the weather this time of year) and I'll try to get some cool pics. Roatan has amazing pillars, crevices, and tunnels.
  2. Got the original bb58 Tudor bracelet (In restrospect, coulda bought another watch for that price... )
  3. Makes sense. I'd never go into the water in your freezing west coast water either, lol. Heading to Honduras in a few weeks and going to try the Bb58 on bracelet for those dives ( only have tried NATO strap in the past)
  4. Isn't that your wife? Sweet watch, have you taken any of ur divers into the water in SD? I bet they're fun to have on the beach there.
  5. @Posturedoc So my gf loves you. We've bought over a dozen German Reislings since your recommendation. Amazing variatal, thanks again.
  6. Haven't seen it yet, but ppl I know are saying the writing has been awful. They compare to house of the dragon (which is meh compared to GoTs) which they say has far superior writing
  7. I agree with your sentiment. However, race is very important in terms of therapeutics. European descendents have been mixed enough and dealt with many 'first world problems' (for their time throughout history) that they have gained a genetic advantage in a lot of treatments. Not sure if you or anyone you know suffer from high blood pressure, but a good is example is it's treatment. Most patients will be started on a ace-inhibitor (Lisinopril, enalapril, ramipril, etc) or an arb (losartan, olmesartan, valsartan). However, patients of African decent don't tolerate and/or have much benefit from them, so they are started on a usual 2nd/3rd line therapy: calcium channel blocker (Amlodipine or nifedipine). Alot of these same genetic differences affect infectious disease prognosis and treatment. I understand how on the outside it appears "racist", but because so many other diseases are treated differently, it is still important to segregate the data. Hopefully in the near future the human race will have a better handle on genetics and pharmacogenomics, but right now we gotta to use what we have.
  8. Wow. Guess I'm getting a better eye as time goes by. It was educated guesses, but still all guesses. Only thing I really know about tritium is (I think) it's what's used on my old Kimber's sights, and Ball uses it to create cool colors.
  9. Oldest - second from left in top row in first pic, and bottom right watch in second pic? Tritium - bottom left watch in first pic, and top middle in second?
  10. Interesting. Some reason I thought sealed under the sapphire it would be protected. I guess they replace those pieces during regular service every 7-10 years to keep your lume bright.
  11. The most annoying thing for me is when the full screen ad (when you click a topic thread) takes you to the last post instead of the first unread post when you click the "x".
  12. Maybe it's different in other parts of the country, but I haven't met a person "on the fence" in years. The only "first doses" I administer these days are to kids who become eligible due to age. Ppl have made up their minds. Any time me or any of my colleagues in pharmacy nursing, or medicine try to recommend a covid vaccine to a paxlovid or positive infected pt, it's either a resounding NO, or they are already up to date on their IMZs.
  13. Just like influenza, covid has mutated to a more contagious, less virulent variant. Almost only upper respiratory symptoms vs lower respiratory issues which drastically decreased the morbidity/mortality rate.
  14. Nice, nice! That citizen looks crazy bright! Went through my pics and only lume shot u have of mine is this one (need to take some new pics I think):
  15. I was going to say... If the law of conservation of mass was disproven, that would change EVERYTHING.
  16. Awesome collection. That sedna seamaster is definitely giving me James bond version vibes, very cool.
  17. Cool lume shot of an older explorer2 on the Rolex forum:
  18. I've heard that about Canada Goose. Thought Patagonia gave you what you paid for. Anyways, I've always been down to support this company due to Mr Chouinard.
  19. “Hopefully this will influence a new form of capitalism that doesn’t end up with a few rich people and a bunch of poor people,” Mr. Chouinard, 83, said in an exclusive interview. “We are going to give away the maximum amount of money to people who are actively working on saving this planet.”
  20. Crazy what this guy just did. I own a lot of their products and makes me happy such a good guy ran this company: https://www.nytimes.com/2022/09/14/climate/patagonia-climate-philanthropy-chouinard.html
  21. Actually had it for the first time 2 days ago at their Sloan's lake location. So good
  22. Haven't been to Littleton in awhile. Still need to check out that Breckenridge brewery (only been to the one in Breckenridge), especially if they have a bomb marzen. I also remember enjoying coal mine ave brewery and blue spruce brewery down there.
  23. Oh bummer. We're pretty spoiled here. Have about 20 great breweries within 5 mins of us that just tapped their marzen for this season.
