All I can think of now is a tiny, unfortunate wee guy with a lil rubber cap on his head tripping and falling into the ho tub!

Yer sure there was nothin phloating on the water as you got in, Em?

:lol::lol: Tiny wee guy with a li'l rubber cap on his head......now, did I have anybody in my ho'tub around that time fitting that description?...... . .I mean, we're talking small head, here.....that could explain it -- poor wee bloke, sitting with us in the tub, inadvertently losing his rubber cap....this goes unnoticed, as we are all drinking wine, larfing away (probably at this guy's tiny head)...hmmm...this or the airplane.... .. ..they both make a great deal of sense...

The only things I think of falling from a plane (besides wings of course, which I always used to keep my eye on in my early flying days :ph34r: ) are those blue froz en things that wouldn't last long in a ho' tub though, at least not in their frozen form, and wouldn't look much llike crutch tips when they melted :D:ph34r:

:huh:

What are these blue frozen things, Shrooomie?. . ..Icicles?. .. ...

Was there ever a PICTURE of this thing?

YES. I took one, when Ptaoughmmn and I were discussing which coloUr is most commonly used in the manufacture of crutch-tips. I said brick-coloUred, as this find in my ho'tub was....Ptoughmn seemed to think he'd seen a lot of black ones.....anyways, I took a shot of this crutch tip beside the brick siding of my house. 'Twas the EXACT same coloUr.........what does it meeeeeeean??...

and what in hell has Leesargh got going on ??

The flash mob was for the International Law Enforcement Conference for the 2013 Special Olympics. It was a small group of performers with a wide range of ability <_< It was fun anyway, but I almost hope it doesn't make it on youtube. :ph34r: But I only noticed the beginning because shortly after it started a young man....a special olympics athlete...got up and danced next to me. Didn't notice anyone else after that. :wub: He was adorable! It could've looked great after the beginning. I wouldn't have known!

Djya check the tub?

Weren't the Twa considerably larger than GI Joe/Barbie size?

(Oops *Aren't*! . ..sorry Twa!)

P'raps Sam Hill Manhead's original disposers dropped it whilst surveilling his whereabouts. Makes perfect sense if the crutch-tip doubled as a scale model for a Burundian hat for a Jeeyi Joe Manhead scale model of Sam.

Hey Sports Fans!! . . . . ..hmmm not much enthusiasm ..

Hey fans of 9 yr olds doing uhhhMAZE-zing things! (Ahh there we go)

I'm watching espn now, but the clips were on my local news too.

9yo kid in Utah playing midget football (how unPC), definitely one of the smallest on the field, playing running back & being almost unstoppable, breaking tackles or scooting out of reach of the little boys giving chase. 35 touchdowns!

Her dad must be so proud.

She was on our news as well . . . Has 35 touchdowns and something like 1900 yards rushing this season and she plays some defense as well but they didn't have any clips of it.

Sam Hill . . . :lol: :lol: :lol: . . . and I can't believe that tom brought up the Burundi as I was going to suggest them as well . . . totally forgot about the Twa.

Is anyone on here into video games?

I decided to play Legend of zelda: Majora's mask for the heck of it and started a new file. I'm just now realizing how ridiculously dark it is. Oh wow. If it were released today, there is no doubt it would be a "T" game instead of an "E" game. Scratch that, it is being rereleased for the WiiU (why nintendo, why?).

There is the trailer for it if your interested.

Em's post with a link for a ho' tub crutch tip.

Close enough........ . I am certain it is the large, brick-coloUred, rubber thing that goes onto the end of a wooden CRUTCH.

I said that one COULD probably wear it around one's neck. WOULD one? Another story. . . . .

laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

WHAT IN HELL is a crutch end doing in my ho' tub?????? NO ONE 'round here wears crutches.

huh.gif

huh.gif

laugh.gif

This is what I found (ONE of these):

http://images.allegr...EDIUM_IMAGE.jpg

Now, could these things be used for anything else???

I think not. . . . . they're fer crutches!!!

No one, not any child, adult, neighboUr, who has been here or even LIVES around here, has crutches.

And where is said picture?

I will look for it....it could still be in my folder of old pics. I could actually look for the actual crutch tip itself, which I don't remember ever throwing out.... Could be in Jack's room, as he found this whole mystery fascinating, took it to school to the "sharing time" and explained its strange appearance in our lives. Apparently his fellow students looked at him like this:

:huh::huh::blink::huh::huh:

His teacher, to this day, probably wonders what ever happened that weird kid and his questionable family....

P'raps Sam Hill Manhead's original disposers dropped it whilst surveilling his whereabouts. Makes perfect sense if the crutch-tip doubled as a scale model for a Burundian hat for a Jeeyi Joe Manhead scale model of Sam.

:lol::lol::wacko:

I am certain that I still have pics of SHM -- and yes, to comemmorate Patteigh's Great Phlipover, we should resurrect the SHM Avs in a Great, Syncronized Avatar Change.....

Jyaghnutt, you need to dig up my report on the finding of Sam Hill Manhead -- these poor newbies' heads are gonna explode with confusion.... :lol:

    • My son is 5 and his symptoms are all behavioral and neurological. If he eats a few pretzels he will develop something called a stereotypy where his fingers become sort of stuck in distorted positions for days. If he eats gluten he also experiences auditory and visual hallucinations, insomnia, loss of balance and fine motor, periods of confusion (doesn't know where he is), dialated pupils, chronic post nasal drip, keratosis pilaris covering torso, extreme behavioral issues, constipation and bloating. We've been to 3 neurologists, 2 allergists, an endocrinologist, psychological, psychiatrist, dermatologist,  infectious disease specialist and soon will see a gastroenterologist. He's tested negative for celiac and doesn't have the gene which would indicate gluten as an issue for him. Despite these facts, we entirely removed gluten and dairy from his diet and he is a normal happy playful child again, living the life he should be living.  He's had a few instances of dietary mishaps at school which were difficult to recover from. We implemented the AIP diet which for us included no grains (no corn, rice or quinoa), no dairy, no legumes (especially soy), no eggs and limited nightshades. Basically, we have been eating only vegetables, fruits, meats and nuts. Nothing processed. It works. Now we are at the point of adding things back into his diet and it's going well. We've determined that he's sensitive to a particular baking mix brand called Simple Mills. So there are only two possibilities to this a) Simple Mills brand isn't as gluten free as it needs to be or b)my son is actually sensitive to baking soda.  I also think he might be dealing with intestinal permeability or "leaky gut". I've been reading about a protein called zonulin and I question whether that could be a potential biomarker in our case. Prayers for your daughter. If you think it's a dietary trigger then you are right and I encourage you to never give up. You will find an answer if you keep looking. I promise.  
    • Well.... it can be... the plastic lid on the lovely chicken salad you brought for lunch sticks, you pull too hard and it, and half your salad going flying all over the company computer?  
    • @cyclinglady I heard that there were problems with Armour Thyroid when it came to gluten a few years ago. I thought it was no longer safe? @MegamaniacI had forgot to put that in my original post that I have a lot of issues with anxiety as well. I've never actually been officially diagnosed with a type of depression/anxiety/etc, but I've had problems with that ever since I was pretty young (I think before puberty). I'm sorry to hear about your medical field experience. I've actively sought out doctors (and got lucky having a great primary dr) over the past few years since very few seem to know much about it. The fact that a doctor would laugh at a patient for anything is pretty infuriating. Sorry to hear that. I went to a gastro that barely listened to a word I was saying and only offered a short term "solution" so I never went back to him.
    • He left a voicemail (which I was really thankful for bc it is SO hard to get ahold of someone) and said the celiac panel came back positive and told me to start a gluten free diet and asked me to call him. He said he was going to set me up with a nutritionist. I will definitely check out the newbie page. I am in the navy and I'm pretty sure I get kicked out for this. The first grocery trip was pretty difficult for me. I almost cried thinking about how different my life will be. Thanks for the support everyone ! 
    • No I don't know what that is.  The school's been understanding but I just can't have her hurting the other kids were attacking the principal so I've decided to keep her home until she starts acting normal again.   She has not been officially diagnosed with celiacs we have an appointment soon.  She is allergic to gluten wheat and milk.  It seems like the gluten or the wheat affect her mood greatly.
