Omaha Steve is 10-7 End of Shift

That means I retired this afternoon.


>>> PLEASE say Happy Birthday to Marta!!!<<<

Yep it is today.


The 800 pound gorilla in the GD Forum

Here was the first mention of problems: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10025433174 with these follow ups: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10025470469 & http://www.democraticunderground.com/10025531983

It has been almost a year since the specialist gave me (and Marta) the long face. I'm not ready to talk about it on the DU yet.

My last day at work before retiring is this coming Saturday the 29th. Up until now a very few in management have known what my FMLA days were for. I'm telling my friends at work Wednesday with my goodbye. I won't see most of my friends after Wednesday because of the Thanksgiving and day after (I'm off Friday too) holidays.

There is no real treatment. On average I have five years left in me. The last couple I won't be here. It gets ugly.

There is a high suicide rate for people with my condition. Last night during his show Bill Maher mentioned assisted suicide. Brittany Maynard deserves so much praise for getting ‘death with dignity’ in the national debate again: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/oct/31/oregon-womans-assisted-suicide-decision-sparks-deb/?page=all

Some people have noticed I have changed and been very moody. It started a few years ago. It goes with the territory. I hope you can put up with what is going on while I remain here.

Your friend,

Omaha Steve

In 125 Years, Millions Of People Have Looked At This Painting. No One Really Saw It Until Now.

I'm not easily impressed, OK?

I know Van Gogh was a genius. If the point of this were "Van Gogh was a mad genius," I would not be sharing this with you.

But I found this and I thought, "Oh, what a vaguely interesting thing." And then I got to the part about the Hubble Space Telescope, and, let me tell you: Mind. Blown.

We've got the set up here, but you have to watch the video for the full effect. It's all the way at the bottom.

MUCH more at link you should look over first.
