Apropos of Nothing

I heart The Oatmeal.

How long could you survive chained to a bunk bed with a velociraptor?

David's been having some lower left quadrant abdominal pain the past few days, so he went to see the doctor, who thinks it may be diverticulitis. Other than being over 40 and not getting as much exercise as he probably ought, he's not exactly a typical diverticulitis patient. We're both vegetarian - he has been for around 25 years - and we eat a very high fiber diet. Since I do most of the cooking, I make sure of that. We both also drink plenty of water, which he was instructed to do after his kidney stone a few years ago.

Anyway, he's got a CT scan scheduled in about 11 hours, so I need to try to get a bit of sleep so I can go with him to the hospital. More to follow, I guess.

Here's hoping the scan goes well. Digestive stuff is a drag. :(

You would survive 7 more seconds than me. Huh, go figure! 25 years of martial arts doesn't count much against the beast, eh?

Best of luck to David! And you!!

According to that quiz, 54 seconds would pass by until I fully kicked the grump out of that raptor and taught him a lesson in manners.
