    Bad beat/Moan/Venting Thread - BBV Archive 3

    New thread, the old one seemed to be causing DB errors too often.

      Can we sticky the old one to make it easy to find for searches etc?

          The first version is still stickied so the 2nd version certainly will remain so. Might unsticky the first one, but not just yet I'd say, but I'm not a fan of too many stickies. I'd merge them except it'd break the site fully probably.

              Maybe pull it out of the current section and move it to community so it gets more traffic. No reason for that particular thread to be hidden.

                    If you really want to keep links to all of them, create a BBV Index sticky and pop in a numbered and dated link to each as you lock it

                        X can be anything, any number, that is what’s CRAZY about X.
                        Because X doesn’t roll like that, because X can’t be pinned down!

                            Might just keep one old one as a sticky, and link to the previous one in the OP. If we get to a few of them might do something like that.

                                Snap. Might ask them if there is a discount if you go to all four?

                                I recall my brother trying to explain to my mother that East 17 were better than The Beatles.

                                  East 17, with the original members, but without the lead singer dude. They really should mention that on the posted. It'd be like Blur without Damon Albarn, except shitter obviously.

                                    Showing some stellar East 17 knowledge there to be fair. I'll put you down for 4 nights.
                                    Emailed them to enquire about a discount.

                                        Roof could do with a little work on it atm, you reckon that East 17 roofer guy might be doing some nixers while he's over? I mean if they are charging 50 quid for the gig and a 4 course meal then surely for a €100 he will fix my roof and make me a sandwich.

                                            I'm sure any of those guys would do alot more for €100! They are playing in the regency after all!

                                                Are we rioting and moving site or rolling over for the second time?

                                                        Is there a reliable cousins source for football highlights show? I'm basically only interested in a champions league round up, only get to watch one live match a day and that's on my phone and 101 great goals is far from reliable and usually crap quality

                                                                              Major negative is no drag and drop of files. Everything has to go through their own software, in a very applesque way

                                                                              Edit: Sorry missed the already bought the Nexus post!

I'd prefer it didn't happen but it does. Manning up is walking in the door. The fainting bit I can't do anything about.

                                                                                              I decided it might be a good opportunity to get a healthy baseline established so if something was to happen in 5-10 years time the doctors wouldn't be able to say "it must be your crazy diet" etc. Plus I want to get the detailed blood work done to see what my cholesterol profile looks like.

                                                                                              Own your own health I say. You don't really want to be relying on the Bubblekings of this world when you are at your most vulnerable.

Just can't stop myself from effectively fainting (obv told the doc in advance so I was lying down and didn't actually go unconscious). Anyone tried hypnotherapy or some other solution to get over a pretty bad blood phobia?

Clashed with another bike at full speed with the point of contact being my knuckle. Got to see blood and bone for quite a while and a bit of passing out along the way. Been getting gradually worse ever since.

I tell them I'm going to faint but take the blood anyway and that's what happens. I'd prefer it didn't happen but it does. Manning up is walking in the door. The fainting bit I can't do anything about.

Can't remember what their thesis was but I do remember thinking it was a load of bollocks and if when you next get a little nick just play around with it put it on your finger etc. you'll get over it.

Can't remember what their thesis was but I do remember thinking it was a load of bollocks and if when you next get a little nick just play around with it put it on your finger etc. you'll get over it.
                                                                                                                  Ah I don't go down with a shaving cut or anything like that ffs.

                                                                                                                  It's more the whole medical vials of blood being taken thing that seems to get to me. I do remember reading something like that article myself but I think you could argue any phobia has a basis in evolution but clearly it's become oversensitive by our upbringing or personal experiences.

                                                                                                                  I mean a fear of heights is not a bad thing but being petrified or passing out is debilitating.

                                                                                                                  I'd like to deal with it once and for all tbh.

I'll have another consultation to follow up on the results and get the flu jab while I'm at it. Hopefully that will be it for another few years then. I'd say you could get it done in the UK for nothing as they probably have a proper preventative regime over there rather than the expensive reactionary regime here. But the country is fucked up afterall.

                                                                                                                    I'll probably go get the bodyfat scan done near the end of the year in UCD just to get a feel for where I'm at. My personal view is that I'm ~18% bf at the minute. Net weight loss has really slowed but I can feel the muscle continuing to build up. I actually managed 4 chin ups unassisted yesterday (done with a 30 second space between each).

                                                                                                                      When it opened first I got sucked into a syndicate where we removed one number by perming 7 each using our own numbers. This went on for a few years before they made a balls of the game, turning it into a lottery by increasing the number of balls
                                                                                                                      Now twenty years later I still struggle to forget everyone elses numbers while mine no matter how hard I try cannot be erased.
                                                                                                                      A few weeks ago one Sunday morning 6AM news on the radio I woke in a panic after I heard all 6 numbers. turns out I'd misheard and it was only five including the bonus number.
                                                                                                                      Stupid numbers... they weren't even all primes FFS!

                                                                                                                        re:bf, I got tested last week (PT did it for free) and had estimated 18%. Result - 19.2%. Gonna have to cut out the treats for a bit and get down to 15 by Christmas.

                                                                                                                        Must have been up around 30% at some stage in last 2 years if I'm still 19.2% considering the massive difference in body shape.

                                                                                                                        also re: chins. I recently put a chin up bar on my jacks door. Every visit, pump out a rep or two. Then two reps or three etc etc. In 6/7 weeks you'll be flying with them.
