  1. Just got back from rock climbing - won a couple of North Face t-shirts in a raffle for World Rock Climbing Day. Sweet!
  2. Haha, all good, I can see you As I get old I find I suffer fools less and I make a conscious choice to remove as much negativity and confrontation from my interactions, whether online or in person. It's far easier to walk away (or block) people who you think have a detrimental vibe. The alternative to blocking is not to visit at all (which I have done a few times) but I value the contributions of some and have some good mates on here. You only have to look at the mental health thread and see how many people suffer from issues but expose themselves to the wrong influences every day. I heard a report this morning that mental health issues have increased 65% in the last 10 years. I find that interesting given the iPhone was released in 2007 (widely adopted in 2009) which roughly coincided with Facebook's popularity explosion. Coincidence? People commit suicide because of trolls but everyone has the option to not listen to them.
  3. No, it's because they annoy me. I'm happy to have civil discussions, but I find the entire social media experience far more enjoyable when I remove all the negative tossers My take is this, if you're getting angry or frustrated on social media you need to modify what you're exposing yourself to.
  4. Rubbish. We've discussed this old wive's tale before. Netball is high on the list for twisted ankles, hand and finger strains but especially ACL knee injuries. I just read a report about Yoga injuries and they recorded only 118 injuries in 7 years. Netball ranks at 14 injuries per 1000 hours played. Do the maths. I'm yet to go to a yoga class where anyone has been injured.
  5. The previous page ended up at 34 for me - you're an amateur!
  6. I have 27 blocked posts on this page alone!!!
  7. For me, there are literally more posts on this thread hidden than there are seen - you should give it a shot!

    Disagree, it clearly hit the ground first and he knew it.

    Seems English sportsmanship took another blow with Root claiming a half volley as a catch. How the video umpire gave out is astonishing.

    nah, should have been called back - knock on - but I'll read it tomorrow as a try

    You got the rub of the green from the bunker Even Wade Graham admitted he knocked on - good on him, at least he's honest Bludger of a game though...

    Greg 'it's all about me' Hartley. Thank goodness we don't have any more Hollywood's, imagine having to cop that as well as how bad the decisions are. I'm going to show my young bloke some of this - he doesn't know what toe-poking is...
  13. Jones is a complete and utter flog. </end thread>

    Cam would have picked it out. The NRL is a farce.

    Hope the Aussie quicks believe in payback - would love to see Mitch Stark rattling his cage some time during the series. Pitch looks a bit up and down - the one that got Smith didn't get up.

    Some ordinary sportmanship from Archer right now. Just felled Steve Smith with a bouncer and didn't even go and see how he was. Then went back and had a laugh about it with a teammate while Smith was prostrate on the ground. What a prick. Smith now retired hurt. Geeez, they just show the slo-mo - a mirror of what happened to Phil Hughes - got him right on the side of the neck - fully exposed.

    Well Cammy has to approve every decision... He's got to be the most punchable bloke in sport.

    MOVIE REVIEWS

    I see Parky's there today as well, will be good to hear his opinion. A shout out that Free Solo is on SBS tomorrow night at 8.30. f you haven't seen it then here's your chance. Get on in, was no fluke it won an academy award. Hateful Eight is on tonight if you want more violence
  19. That's right and they also take into account a natural rise in levels as you age. PSA levels chart Age-Specific Reference Ranges for Serum PSA Age Range (Years) Asian Americans African Americans Caucasians 40 to 49 0 to 2.0 ng/mL 0 to 2.0 ng/mL 0 to 2.5 ng/mL 50 to 59 0 to 3.0 ng/mL 0 to 4.0 ng/mL 0 to 3.5 ng/mL 60 to 69 0 to 4.0 ng/mL 0 to 4.5 ng/mL 0 to 4.5 ng/mL 70 to 79 0 to 5.0 ng/mL 0 to 5.5 ng/mL 0 to 6.5 ng/mL The "normal" PSA serum concentration remains a debate, however, for most laboratory readings, it should be less than 4.0 ng/mL. The prostate gland generally increases in size and produces more PSA with increasing age, so it is normal to have lower levels in young men and higher levels in older men. Due to these normal changes in PSA with age, the concept of age-adjusted PSA normals have been described and recommended. What is considered to be a normal PSA level also depends on ethnicity and family history of prostate cancer. Once an initial PSA has been obtained, the change in the PSA over time, the PSA velocity, plays a role in clinical decision making. It is felt that the PSA velocity over a year should be less than 0.75 ng/mL. For example, a man 50 to 59 years of age with a PSA level that is 0.5 ng/mL one year and increases to 2.5 ng/mL the following year, may be viewed as having a normal PSA level, but the rate of change in his PSA (PSA velocity) would be worrisome for an underlying prostate cancer. Lastly, as the size of the prostate gland may affect the PSA level, PSA density (PSA level divided by prostate volume) can also be a helpful number. A PSA density of 0.18 or less appears to be an optimal number.
  20. We're digressing a fair bit here but the most dangerous place I've ever been is New Guinea - specifically Port Moresby. There are some absolutely sensational spots on New Britain but the bandits and dangers around Moresby are very real. Payback is still very much alive.
  21. 280 million people can't all be bad It's not for me but I'm sure there's people who'd love it. My BIL (Jenny's brother) just spent the past 18 months in Brooklyn and they couldn't wait to get home again. Personally I'd be happy to never go mainland USA again (unless it was necessary to get to Alaska - I really want to go there)
  22. Not entirely true - my wife had a nasty experience with a cabbie in NYC where she thought she was gonna get attacked. Jumped out of the car and ran. Seriously lucky he didn't have a gun. They just don't think like the rest of the world. I have some very, very good friends there but they also say and do some really unacceptable things - mostly around their guns... There's a reason my wife's whole family came here - and they know way more about the States than any of us tourists.
  23. That's pretty cool, very, very clever. Are you allowed to have MRIs in the future?
  24. There's dodgy parts everywhere in Sydney, just like any other city. ACA like to hunt people down in the housing commission/high unemployment/high drug areas. There's definitely areas of Sydney I'd prefer not to go but there's plenty of good people around here.
