Don't know where you're located, but Wisconsin has never really gotten onboard with the overly hopped pale ale style. The German heritage of the state means that the smaller breweries produce lots of good Pilsner style beers, and more balanced ales. Sprecher, Lakefront, Central Waters, 3 Sheeps, MKE, and Ale Asylum are good breweries with regional distribution. If you're in the state, it's impossible to go wrong with anything from New Glarus.

I do think there are those in my field that deliberately cultivate the absent minded professor look. There are also those who really are that way.

I am a "tweener" as you describe. I was mostly a distance runner in HS, and was solid but not spectacular. I would also run the 400 a lot because the sprinters were lazy and didn't want to run that far- solid but not spectacular there, either. I only seriously started lifting after college, and I made quick gains to 225 in the bench, but pushing to 315 took a LOT of effort, and my distance running suffered during that time. I'm training for a triathlon now, so my max strength is down, but endurance is up.

anyways, my point was just that not all of us nerds are 95 pound weaklings in need of Charles Atlas training programs and fashion advice.

I have MS degrees in physics and EE, and can bench 315 and run the 5K in 21 minutes at age 38. However, I'm greatly in the minority, and am against posting anything on YouTube or social media.

There is also some weird thing about physicists not combing their hair in tribute in Einstein, I guess. And picking clothes seemingly at random from a dark closet with no regard for fashion or at a minimum semi decent taste.

It was interesting to see Europeans not know how big the U.S. is, and the 'muricans not know how big (or small) Europe is. Yeah geography class!

It still boggles my mind that Lawrence Phillips was drafted ahead of Eddie George

I posted this earlier, but Char-griller just started making on that's $300 at my local WalMart. I don't know about the quality, though

You can probably find a machine shop that can do it for you, for about $50.

Still mooing rare, please, for my steaks

Comment 14 May 2015

I've put an aftermarket addition on my Weber for searing steaks- a repurposed hair dryer connected to an inlet vent I welded on... (I can remove it and cover the hole, if I'm not using the blower). If I use lump charcoal, I estimate I can get the temperature up to 1200F, which is why I replace the charcoal grate frequently

I recommend starting their third string QB and seeing how that works out for them.

Comment 13 May 2015

Wife and I have been contemplating an elliptical. all of the cheaper ones we've tried feel uncomfortable (usually a very short stride length, or weird up and down motion), so it looks like it might be a larger investment than anticipated. The ones at my local Y cost around 10k new, but you can find them refurbished for around 3k.

Is it totally hot for women to have a beer gut too now?

No one listen to this "dad body" thing. You can find someone into just about anything under the sun, it doesn't mean that the whole female population thinks the same.
