    I want to be buried with my dog too. I don’t have to have him put down tho. He died nine years ago. I’ve given instructions to my family that when I die, the dog comes with me.

    I still think Sony did this to themselves because they know the movie sucks.

    The North Koreans really don’t need to go to this much trouble to keep people from seeing the movie. look at the cast. It looks stupid.

    I am starting to wonder if this is a plot from the producers of the movie because they know they made a stinker, and they’re embarrassed.

    I love Martin Freeman (my favorite tv show is Sherlock). This was the only funny skit on SNL last night.

    SNL hasn’t been funny in years. It wasn’t their best effort, but I did laugh at this skit. Think it was because Freeman is usually funny.

    Rest of the show, I thought it sucked. Too bad, but Freeman could only do so much with the horrible writing.

    I’m disturbed that those cadets said they were being taught that World War II was an “immoral war”.

    How was it immoral? Because we won? Because our soldiers did whatever they had to to win? Is it because of the atom bomb? (guess that’s probably it)

    These “teachers” are looking at WWII with 2014 eyes. Not with the eyes of the soldiers who fought that war.

    If America hadn’t joined the war, Germany would have washed over Europe, and into England. From there, they would have crossed the oceans, and we’d all be speaking German (or Japanese) today.

    The Jews would be just a memory (or completely forgotten about within a generation or two).
    And the Nazi’s wouldn’t have stopped with the Jews. Anyone who opposed them would have been sent to the concentration camps. All those gay people screaming for their rights today. There wouldn’t be any of that either. They’d be screaming, but it would be from the gas chambers.

    I don’t see how they can call it an immoral war. All killing is immoral, but we had a right to protect the world, and ourselves from the Nazi’s. Killing in defense of yourself and others isn’t immoral.

    It had to be done, and those soldiers did it, and I am so happy that they did. Just sorry that people today are forgetting the lessons that were learned during those years.

    Let’s hope the dog bit her a few times while she was torturing it.

    I wish we could go back, but you know it’ll never happen. Because someone who “thinks” that they “know” better, will come along and try to “fix” things.

    They should have just focused on the people who didn’t have insurance, and left the rest of us alone.

    I have a serious medical condition, and it’s never going to get better. I’m stuck with it. And now I’m stuck with the massive screw up that our government forced on us.

    Not exactly sure why I’m being punished because someone else didn’t have insurance. It’s not my fault they don’t have it. I did my stuff right, and now I’m being forced to buy stuff that I’m never going to use (maternity related medical stuff). If I’m never going to use that stuff. I don’t see why I have to pay for it.

    I also don’t see why people who are here illegally are being rewarded with social security benefits. They didn’t “build that”.

    I’m not using Obamacare, but my insurance company just decided to not work with my doctor’s office. (my insurance co is the largest one in Nebraska. My doctor’s office is also the largest medical group in Nebraska. Neither will work with each other anymore).

    I don’t want to leave my doctor. (you know, because I was promised I could keep him). I’m actually afraid to switch insurance companies because of the clustersuck that the government did to the insurance industries. I’m scared that the rules about pre-existing conditions will get changed, and I’ll end up being forced onto Obamacare.

    Little worried about my health this week. I have to go to the doctor. I wish the government had never messed with things. I keep putting off seeing a doctor for my various problems because of the insurance being so screwed up. I think I’d be fine if they hadn’t messed with the insurance. But now, I’m scared to use it at all because it barely pays anything.

    Series 3 of Ripper Street has been filmed. It’s been on Amazon UK’s Prime videos.

    From what I’ve read it’s been well received. I wish I could watch it, but I guess we have to wait until Amazon brings it to the US. Can’t wait. One thing the British have been doing well lately is make tv shows like Ripper Street that are at least interesting, and not a commercial to sell whatever trendy products are popular.

    They just take forever to do it. (Still waiting for Series 4 of Sherlock)

    Only problem with writing a note to the crooks. They probably won’t be able to read it.

    I hope the hostages knew that the military was at least attempting to rescue them before they died. Wish they had lived.

    I’m not sure why, but just the way the timeline reads. The story sounds a little hinky to me.

    I don’t know why I’m getting a sense that it might not be true. Maybe I’m starting to lose trust in the entire world?

    She shouldn’t have apologized. Someone needs to educate the first family (notice I didn’t capitalize “first”) that when they’re living in the People’s House, there are certain responsibilities that we expect from them.

    Obama wanted the position, well, he’s got it now, and he and his family are now supposed to be the “First Family”. They might not want to go to some of the functions that they’re expected to be at (posthumous medal award ceremonies, funerals for other heads of state, other official functions).

    I don’t actually expect his children to act the part, they’re children. But Obama and his wife need to look at the way the last 43 families acted, and hopefully act accordingly with proper manners. Smiles, no frowning. Be pleasant when the situation calls for it.

    They need to stop acting like they hate America, and that they don’t want to be there. He wanted the job. He should try to make the effort.

    It’s becoming “trendy” to protest against the police and the government. I have a bad feeling that it’s going to keep building, and building. With groups like the communists, and even Obama putting out misinformation about what, and who causes certain issues.
    It’ll get to the point where no one remembers what originally triggered the problems.

    They’ll continue making the same mistakes, because people look at things, but they don’t really *observe* what is going on.

    They don’t learn.

    No one paid enough attention to them as children apparently.

    I don’t understand. This helps how exactly?

    I’m doing an exercise program now. I was on a treadmill for about 20 minutes today. (3wks ago, I couldn’t even do 3minutes. yay for exercise!). I had to be really careful with the treadmill. My shoulders got sore because I have to hold onto the treadmill to keep from falling. At about the 15min mark, I almost tripped because my right leg got a weird twitch in it in mid step. Never had that before.

    I did notice that when I exercise, it seems to help my proprioception a tiny bit. I think it’s because I’d been sitting for months, and blood flow in my legs was getting affected, which makes the numbness worse.

    Wish my proprioception wasn’t all screwy. I miss roller skating. Won’t be doing that again, but if I can get my endurance back up, maybe I can go grocery shopping without using the electric scooters. I always feel like I need to leave those for the people who are worse than I am to use.

    That saying “use it, or lose it”…that’s totally true! Anyone here with health issues that make you want to sit and watch tv. Get up while you can, and go take a walk!

    There’s a name for what happens when the heat affects the nerves. It’s called “Uhthoff’s Phenomenon”. When you get overheated, it either stops, or slows down the nerve conduction.

    What I would worry about this girl doing with the running, especially with her proprioception basically being turned off, is it would be really really easy for her to sprain or break an ankle. I’ve almost done it myself, just from trying to stand up from sitting, or walking across the room.

    Hope she gets to keep running. MS really sucks. And for her to get it so young. (she probably has “pediatric MS”). I didn’t get mine till my late 30s. (I’m 45 now). I only started having problems walking in the last 11 months. And I probably wouldn’t be having that problem if I hadn’t hurt my shoulder, and was forced to basically sit still for several months because of the pain.

    I have MS.

    My hands and legs have been varying degrees of numb for the last couple of years. I can still walk, but I have to use a walker. (I hurt my shoulder last year. Had to sit for months because of pain that even narcotics wouldn’t touch, got deconditioned. Trying to get back into shape so I can walk w/o the walker)

    I can confirm that it is the weirdest sensation. To have your legs be numb, and heat making things worse. It’s worse than sitting too long and having a leg fall “asleep”. Because it never goes away.

    Cold can cause problems too. Causes me pain, and I don’t have to get all that cold for that to happen.

    She should keep running for as long as she can. I can tell you from personal experience, if you don’t exercise, bad things happen. (wish I hadn’t hurt my shoulder).

    I’d like to know if she has problems with her proprioception (the ability to know where your extremities are). My proprioception is wonky. I don’t always know where my feet are. (exercise helps that)

    The story I read earlier said the stepfather’s last name was Head. Maybe I’m remembering wrong?

    The stepfather was wrong for calling for them to burn Ferguson. I think there’s at least 25 people who would be well within their rights to sue the riot/arson instigator for the damages. They’ll never get money out of him if they win tho.
