I love the wording of this post subject. What's the "possible" part?

Is it possible she attended CEDU? Or is it possible she survived?  :D

Facility Question and Answers / Re: Steve Rookie- Ventures in Peace

no, steve rookie just married someone like 20 years younger than him so he could have more kids though. the guy is 60 and still having babies.

There's nothing wrong with that, save that your children will have a shorter time to be with you because of your age. (Im sure folks will argue that in this case, it's probably a good thing.)


Steve has bullied a hell of a lot of people. I have zero knowledge of how he conducts himself with his family, (and it's really none of my business) Because of this, I view it at face-value and withhold judgment.

There *is* evidence of how he has treated hundreds of other people's kids... I bore witness to many such incidents and can testify to his browbeating of terrified and crying students. His desperate demonstrations of macho bravado, and his lascivious advances towards female students  were pathetic and abusive.

His conduct as a "counselor" was unprofessional, inappropriate, and completely inexcusable, and he has absolutely *NO* business teaching or counseling in any way, shape or form.


However, I have no basis, and no business, weighing in on his family life.

Im just shocked that Islam can be used as a transitive verb.


Why does this shock you?


I'd never heard the term "Islamize" before, that's all. I don't doubt that it's a valid term, (I actually  bothered to look it up). I guess it seems as strange to me as using the name of any religion this way. Christianize, Islamize, but they are valid words and they do indeed exist. Kinda makes me nauseous, because it's all about forcing some bullshit religion onto people who couldn't care less.

Synanonís particular emphasis on truth, for instance, is specifically appropriate to the subject of this film, and will serve as its guiding principle.
It is a conception in which the expression of truth has value in itself - that merely telling the truth about a thing, looking at it squarely and in the full light of day, stripping it of the guilt and shame that feeds off and feeds the need for secrecy you can redeem what would otherwise be condemned to the shadows of the guilty conscience, forever dissembled, defended, and denied.
It was, I believe one of the principle failings of the community, that in the end it refused, or was unable to examine itself with the same harsh honesty it demanded of its members. I can see no reason why, from this distance, we cannot look back upon Synanon with the same spirit of honest examination on which we so prided ourselves back then.


Holy shi**

No wonder that's the first propheet.

I wonder if he was there before or after children were separated from their parents (upon arrival)? What an unusual environment to grow up in.

Now that's an interesting life story for you.

Why didn't they offer it when they came? They only told me about full Vader and the pinchy ones.

Not sure. Since they offered you nose ones, it's doubtful that the mask prescription was for any mouth breathing issues.

It's possible that your particular DME (the equipment supplier) doesn't carry the masks I mentioned. I believe you can talk to your doctor about switching dmes if they dont carry what you need. As we all know, a cpap mask that is not being worn is 0% effective.

Resmed gear, from my experience, is pretty pervasive. Most, if not all DMEs will carry the line, I would think. The company makes one of the two main lines of CPAPs on the market. (the other being respironics) Those two companies are the "giants" of the industry.

The other possibility is that the masks that were offered to you are the only kinds your insurance covers. Im not too sure how that would work. I know that pretty much anything I need from my DME, if I have the prescription, my insurance will cover, so it may simply be a supply issue on their end.

As for the mask, I got my swift FX last week and it is sooo much better. The swift masks on the whole are nice, but this model is great. The mask is basically engineered around the nose pillows unit. There is a hell of a lot less hardware, and the hose assembly from the nose pillows has been totally revamped. It's the first mask Ive had where I've experienced little to no leakage at night when I toss and turn.

That's the most awesome thing I've heard in a really long time.  :notworthy:


If anything, this is an argument FOR legalization.

There are too many idiots in this world and there are too many laws in place to protect idiots. Result? Everyone else suffers.


Drugs help to thin the herd.


Besides, who the fuck does acid anymore? What an irrelevant substance. There''s much better shit out there.

Is it right to wish people to die a painful cancer death?

Is this a serious question? Or just rabble rousing and general, whiny butthurt?

I'm curious, what country do you live in where it's wrong to have thoughts? Whatever country that is, you'd better get off the intertubes quick before they find you and throw you in that concrete lock-box with all of the other Bad People.

If someone wishes that a huge pointy mallard crushes me to death and then gives me teh AIDS, even though he's already crushed me and it shouldn't matter, then that's their fucking right. If they want to say so on some fucktarded forum, fine. If I have a problem with it, tough titties, it's not my wish. I have my own hypothetical genie, so I can just wish that the duck misses me, apologizes profusely for almost killing me, and then he buys me rocky road ice cream. He can still give me AIDS though.


Butthurt = sworn enemy of free speech and lulz.

Such epic failure when it comes to the design. It still so clearly looks like a school cafeteria, that I actually mistook the displayed t-shirts over the threshold for painted turkey hands.

Despite its fail, it's absolutely brilliant for the exact same reason. Hopefully the manager is smart enough to make the joint strictly school-girl themed. short short uniforms... in the name of the moon I will punish you.. and all that.


It probably would work well with programs, especially those fashioned in the 60s and 70s, cause all of those fucking hippies were really into making sure that their facilities had some sort of "conversation pit". All hail the stripper pit. Summon me three hoppity hops and a gasoline can full of canola oil.

A court in south China has sentenced two Internet "boot camp" instructors to jail for causing the death of a teenager who was being weaned from his web addiction, state press said Monday.

You're joking, right?

Human rights contests aside, China sure seems to be right on the dot with us when it comes to general stupidity.

To review:

The kid used the internet too much.
It gets called a disease
He gets sent away for it

You can stop right there. It's officially stupid, and sounds strangely American. The fact that he gets killed for it seems almost too predictable. Script dept. demands a rewrite.

So I have my machine, and I am really having trouble sleeping on my back with a Darth Vader mask on. (It's not my sexxxiest look, but wth)  I am trying to stick with the commitment. It is hard. It has been about a week or so. Sometimes, I wake up at 4 am and pull it off. It doesn't hurt, it just feels confining. Will I get over it?  Any suggestions? Also, I feel I don't get enough air.

I tried the less cumbersome one that goes directly in my nostrils, but that pinched, thus the Vader mask. Suggestions welcome.

I use nose pillows, and they are quite comfortable. They dont invade your nostrils like  the soft plugs do, and they arent a cumbersome face mask that is prone to leaks. (I personally think that the full face masks are the absolute worst. It's really difficult to maintain positive pressure.)

Resmed just released their new mask, the swift FX

http://shop.talkaboutsleep.com/cpap-nas ... -cpap-mask

I use the LT, but Imma gonna be calling my DME now that I see this one. Im overdue for a new mask anyway. You're supposed to order a new one every three months, but Im terrible about that.

Another option is an oral mask.

http://shop.talkaboutsleep.com/oral-cpa ... -cpap-mask


Ive never used one, so I cant vouch for it. It would be nice if it does work, cause my mouth tends to drop open if I sleep on my back, and chinstraps dont help. Fortunately, with the resmed swift line, I can sleep on my side, which is what I prefer.

Resmed on the whole is a pretty awesome company. My apap is that brand, too.

The swift mask comes with pillows in three sizes, too.

Also, most DMEs are pretty flexible about swapping out masks if one doesnt work.


As for taking the mask off in your sleep, I tend to do that too. There are devices that will sound an alarm if the mask is taken off, but that doesnt prevent someone from sleepily leaning over and turning off the alarm without putting their mask back on, so I personally think it's a waste of money.

Try sleeping with socks on your hands. It doesnt always work for me, but sometimes it does. Just experiment with different kinds of socks.


Just out of curiosity, did you find out what your RDI is? I think mine was like, 47 per hour at 20 seconds, which is obscene. (15 minutes of not breathing per hour.) Although Ive lost weight since then, so it's not as bad anymore. Sometimes I dont even use the machine.


Here's to better sleep.

Nah, the 1850s were just fine. The stamp tax act didn't go into effect until the 1930s.

I think it was used most often as a tea back then, mostly for its analgesic properties.


As for firebombing a pot club... what an overreaction. Perhaps there was some confusion? Although the word "cannabis" looks NOTHING like "OB/GYN". Maybe illiteracy is a new prerequisite for terrorists in this country.
