You could possibly get one from M & M Enterprises Modeling Agency

THAT is the reason Neanderthal went extinct. All you need is one modern human female to look like that and all the Neanderthal guys decide it's interbreed or bust, so to speak.

There is also this. She is going to have such a sore back standing there in those CFM shoes with that admittedly alluring back arch which puts some of her assets on display...but is really bad ergonomically. Wait till they get the workplace safety fine, too.

Along these lines, my new medical assistant is really good with shots and works fast and efficiently and she speaks Spanish well. Great worker! The only problem she stopped wearing glasses (switched to contacts)and started wearing her hair down and now she looks like Jennifer Lopez's younger sister!

Santa Maria! All of a sudden I have teenage male patients asking their moms to take them in for their shots. One kid got his first HPV shot and I told him he needed two more.

Teenager: Good

**************May 30, 1943(c)************

Formosa/Horycrappo-jima: Unloading was done for now at Karenko so we sent Massachusetts to bombard Takao and the CL/DD force at Karenko to Okinawa to try to intercept the transports suspected to be inbound. More fighters to Horycrappo-jima to cover Lee's force operating near Okinawa.

At night, Kongo was spotted inbound about 80 NE of Taihoku. She may have paid a visit to Karenko. If she did, she missed the PT boats. Tautog attacked Kongo in shallow water and got flattened.

Sub attack near Taihoku at 89,62

Japanese Ships
BB Kongo
DD Yudachi
DD Kisaragi

Allied Ships
SS Tautog, hits 5, heavy damage


USS Grouper makes a run at her as well but is damaged by a DD named after a feminine hygiene product. Perhaps the ASW measures slowed down the Kongo convoy. Too bad, a Kongo vs Massachusetts battle would have been interesting.

ASW attack near Taihoku at 89,62

Japanese Ships
DD Yudachi

Massachusetts is now gone...gone to flatten Takao for a second night in a row.

Cap - have you considered the potential synergies with sports physicals? I'm sure weekly rechecks (along with concussion monitoring of course) would be acceptable to the target demographic...

My management consulting fee is 5% of the gross - pre house cut....

Is that a pinstripe just above the rear bumpers, or is it a zipper?

Nice curves! Getting a ride may be theoretically possible for old codgers, but bad on the heart, I fear.

So was it the lawnmower or the pitbull that necessitated his appointment with you?

Pit Bull got him in the leg and hand. I had to triage him to the hand Ortho guy because I was worried about the one of the flexor tendons. Unless you have a weapon, you are going to lose a fight with a Pit Bull. Hory crap!

I don't know. It seems as though you could find some economical chum, rather than trolling with yourself for shark. But what the heck do I know?

Kind of like Kevin Kostner in Water World.

No Thank God. The story from the bulletin board is the Coast Guard chopper showed up and he declined a lift to the hospital. He drove himself back to the house where this picture was taken. The last i read he was recovering well after a three hour operation and was mad they wouldn't give him the hook as a souvenir.

While I don't have Cap's credentials, I believe the short answer is yes, and the diagnostic test is quite simple:

Question: Are you a teen male?
Any positive answer reveals the presence of early stage brain damage.

Or at least brain dysfunction due to hormonal overload.

Testosterone poisoned teen brains are not just some developmental misstep. The whole thing has a socio-biological purpose.


***************25,000 BC, somewhere is present-day Canada a small troop of human hunters encounter their first Mammoth after crossing the Bering land bridge***********


Okk-glub-glub (35 year old senior hunter, missing 3 fingers and his L eye, smells worse than a camel herder but tough as nails): HORY CRAP! Rook at size of beast. Must be careful. Very powerful. Kirr hunters.

Ok-glub-glub Jr: HEY GUYS! WATCH THIS! <grabs spear and runs toward nearest Mammoth>

So, last night me, mem-sahib and DU were all laying on our bed reading books.

Memsahib: This is nice, we should do this more often.
Me: We should all read a chapter from our books out loud for the others to hear.
Memsahib: Yours would be "This was the most important ship of its time and had 12 guns.
Me: Yours would be "My momma made me live in a tin can and eat frogs"
Memsahib: Hers would be "His skin was sparkling, their eyes met..."
Me: "... and then nothing happened"

At this point the 14 yo SU walked in..

Me: And his would be "See Spot. See Spot run. Run Spot Run."

The DU was still giggling 5 minutes later.
