waitaminute,

You mean that astro and cosmo bros can't ?
Well that sux.

I learned today that even after all this time, that I cannot have an intelligent, adult conversation with the X wife
about the well being of our kids without her starting the childish, trash talking.
Guess thats what I get for having full custodySmile

That was a fucked up, childish thing for me to say ^^^

Yeah, I do feel bad about it.

I mean really,
With all of the advancements in technology that we have in this high tech world you would think that someone some how would have figured out how to fix it so that those poor guys on the ISS could at least get some relief.

Today I learned that there's a small town in Southern Germany, which during WWII, was considered the "most German of German towns" by the Nazi Party. It was a well perserved medieval town with cobblestone streets, a wall surrounding it, and these half timbered gingerbread houses. The Nazi's organized field trips for their officers and top enlisted to this town (it was in Southern Germany) because they held it in such high regard and believed it demonstrated the perfect German existence. The residents of the town were also hardcore Nazi supporters.

Fast forward to 1945; the U.S. Assistant Secretary of War instructed Gen Jacob Devers to attempt to take the town without artillery IOT perserve the town due to its historical significance and aesthetics. Battalion Commander Major Francis Burke (MoH recipient) sent 3 officers and 3 enlisted from the 12th Infantry Regiment to enter the town and negotiate the surrender with the German officers occupying the town. He gave them 3 hours, or the town would be leveled by bombs. They successfully surrenderd the town without dropping artillery. After the war, the citizens of said town rebuilt due to the destruction it endured during the war using funds which came in from around the world.

Picture of said town:

TIL that dietary cholesterol (cholesterol you eat) does NOT influence serum cholesterol (cholesterol in your bloodstream).
Which means that all all y'all who eat eggs like a bodybuilder/Gaston are all good.

My uncle always told me to look at their pecs for steroid use signs.. There would be extra fat around their nipples that hadn't burned off with the growth of the muscle.

Who knows.

I wish I looked like that without a shirt on.
Just a dumb grunt.
