    @thewaltonsare, @bankara: thanks!

    Jeff Owens: You's hotstuffs.

    Actually Warren himself looks quite nice too. As he did post a photo to the SPIT and has hisself said it's perfectly okay to be sleazy to the manthings (or did I imagine that) I think I'm allowed to give my compliments to the last photo. I think it's the beard. Now there's one guy who won't go kill his beard like half the rest of you stupidy stupid stupids.

    @Caroline: You're so cute ! and sort of ginger in thsat photo. I'm a wannabe!

    Heres picture form before I went out and had delicious beers




    YELLOW!

    Odaelisabeth: Some of us were not meant to have beards. To wit:

    My valiant attempt to grow one

    That's after ... what, almost two weeks? ... of not shaving. I finally put it out of its misery, but I kept the sideburns, as usual. Hope the beers were good.

    @Oda, I'm fake ginger—and not even a very good one. It does, however, make everyone assume I'm Irish. That and my enormous head.

    Also you look like the 90s but in a very very good way. Very good way.

    Sorry, Oda, I had to temporarily kill my beard to go meet a friend I hadn't seen in years and who has some kind of beardphobia or something.

    Also your pictures continue to make me dizzy from the cuteness. Lovely haircut.

    Dorkmuffin, your hair looks awesome too. Let it grow another five feet and it'll be as long as Ginja's, who's presumably tying his between a pair of trees and using it as a hammock at this point.

    By the way, Whitechapel, who's awesome?



    I've been wanting to take a pic like this for a while. I think there might be something wrong with me.

    @alexwilson

    That explains a lot. So, If I have mild occasional pain in my right elbow and my 4th and 5th fingers on my right hand keep going to sleep, I should get it checked out, yes? Will a GP do?
  2.  (9592.87)
    @Lazarus99: Yes. Also: if you don't already, sleep with your arms straight and try not bend your arms and then put pressure/weight on your elbows. I'm really weird in that I'm right handed but I write as if I'm left handed (which I'm trying to practice not doing). This also puts strain on the ulnar nerve.

    @Lazarus99
    What trini_naenae said. The other two places for ulnar entrapment are the wrist and shoulder. Since you have symptoms in the elbow, I would guess you could rule out the wrist.

    GP or orthopedist. My GP always takes a "let's wait and see" approach, but by the time I go in I've already waited and seen long enough. YMMV.

    I bought some knee pads and wore them backwards on my elbows to train myself to sleep with my arms straighter, which solved my symptoms for a while. When they came back I stopped exercising and went to a physical therapist for a few months thinking there was a problem with my running form. The stretches and furlough seemed to solve my symptoms for the first few weeks. Knowing what I know now, I probably would have gone straight to an orthopedic doctor (who didn't recommend surgery right away; he had me stop exercising completely for yet another six weeks), but I probably still would've tried working with a PT before consenting to the surgery. I don't know whether I could have avoided the surgery, but I definitely would have had fewer months of furlough. YMMV.

    This thread is well on its way to being "the beards and gingers SPIT" All we need now is a ginger beard! Oh, that one above will do nicely. Thanks @Swampyankee. Win.

    @Alexwilson, I am now too terrified to ever sleep again, I am going to have to ask people to tie my arms to my sides before bed now. Hope your recovery from a-condition-i-did-not-know-existed-and-i-can-now-live-in-bed-shitting-horror-of goes well!

    @Bankara, I'm no doctor or anything, but I took a look at your profile pic and you might want to get that stayingawakeitis looked at ASAP.

    If it's any consolation, draxxx, I think most people feel that way. About ourselves, not about you.

    @alexwilson: Thanks, man. I know. But it didn't help that I (stupidly) uploaded the picture to my tumblr and some (anonymous) dope wrote WHOA YOU'RE OLD.

    @alexwilson, hahaha thanks, man! I don't really sleep much anyway so it is no great loss but buying new bedsheets all the time from the aforementioned shit-inducing-night-terrors is getting costly.

    @destra - mine went september-ish. Hairdresser going 'I'm sure you used to have longer hair' when I went in for a trim last month.'
    Me: 'Yeah, i did. He-' :points at hairdresser opposite: 'Cut it all off. he said the split ends were a crime against nature.'
