Lesson 1: Naked Wife

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, “I’ll give you $800 to drop that towel.” After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob.

After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 dollars and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks,…

“Who was that?” “It was Bob the next door neighbor,” she replies. “Great!” the husband says, “Did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?”

Moral of the story:

20th March

In February 2011 I rolled my right Ankle LIKE A BOSS. I was simply running on pavement and wanted to suddenly stop, which resulted in me putting all my weight on my right foot. It rolled over, making a terrifying audible POP sound, and sent me immediately crashing to the pavement. Shock set in within 30 seconds and had me shivering, sweating and feeling like I was going to pass out (which I didn’t). The shock lasted about 10-15 minutes, after which my ankle didn’t really hurt, but was completely unstable and unusable.

First steps after injury… RICE:

1. Rest – you should lay down and get your ankle above your heart (E for Elevate – part 4 of RICE) to prevent swelling.

2. Ice – ice or cool your foot to increase the blood flow around the ankle. I bought some of those … Read More »

Meltdown Discovery Timeline: Chernobyl vs. Fukushima

13th March
