Re: Cutting down your own tree?

My experience is limited to chopping firewood at the vacation house, but chiming in to say I’ve also known firsthand of a tree cutting death — the husband of one of my high school teachers. Proceed with caution.

Re: Systems!- Level 6 towards 7

Jacob, have you read Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky? A good portion is devoted to effective communication and I dare say the ERE project qualifies for the title.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified a small cohort of approximately 5,800 cases of Covid-19 infection among more than 66 million Americans who have completed a full course of vaccination.

Re: Anyone managed to decrease their susceptibility to colds?

To the thread’s general question, I think theanimal has it right. No big secrets there. I second white belt’s advice, and add that you’ll do best with a physician you trust, with whom you can share what you’ve shared here, and whose response you can listen to with an open mind. And you’re here — so ...

Re: The ERE Wheaton Scale

I like it much better than the original. Level 10 strikes me as Laughing Buddha level and quite worthy of aspiration. I think the removal of personal finance acronyms was wise and I might even suggest removal of dollar amounts as the reminder of $$cash money$$ raises defensiveness and all the other ...

Re: Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangsta

YOLO is not to be underestimated, but it can also be the case that if blah blah blah my parents blah blah blah my ex are the most exasperating, exhausting topics imaginable, proactive steps to extinguish smoldering embers of resentment/disillusion may be necessary for next stage of romantic maturati...

Re: Re-tinning copper saucepans?

Cool project to see pop up here. Lots of discussion related to this at the Cookware forum on Chowhound. One of the more knowledgeable posters is a retinner/reseller in France who posts videos of retinning on his YouTube, though he’s cagey about certain things like the exact composition of the fluid ...

Re: Insurance is Expensive Journal

Well, a reasonable starting point may be integrating some of things you identify as having "missed out on" into your own parenting. This doesn't preclude duplicating the things you recognize as valuable, but it's also an acknowledgment that there's some value to be had in building practica...

Re: On deleting journals, posts, and accounts

Some totally contrarian points to add now that the argument’s over: Most of the deletings seem to be personal freakouts. This is sometimes a part of growth. The ones I’ve noticed all came after the posters made huge progress in changing their lives. It’s underappreciated just how scary that is. Ther...

Well, it's fairly uncommon (but obviously not unheard of) for people who profess "belief" in God to expect literal slide down the chimney and Nintendo delivery. And never discussing Santa Claus again is more the province of unhinged grouch than mature adult, since child-rearing, anthropolo...
