Upgraded from "ow motherfucker your spine hates you and your median nerve is rioting" to "healing and full of mucus after slight cold", thanks to prednisone and medical marijuana edibles, and a weekend spent in coma in my bed.

ETA: and then right back to "fuck you motherfucker ow" after coughing fits at work while sitting upright.

Memorial Day

Inadequate thanks are the only kind we have to offer those who gave “the last full measure of devotion” in service to the country. We the living, and we civilians, should be mindful that every one of those deaths betokened an awesome act of trust – trust that, when they made themselves into weapons, they would be wielded wisely; trust that, when they lay down their lives, we would use that coin for worthy purchase. As a nation we have only ever fitfully met the standards implicit in those deaths. Let us be humble, and let us try harder.

DON'T DO IT! SET FIRE TO YOUR HOUSEHOLD GOODS RIGHT NOW AND JUST WALK AWAY FROM THEM WITHOUT SO MUCH AS A BACKWARD GLANCE! THIS WILL BE EASIER IN THE LONG RUN!
