KB, this is a very fine TIMH contribution, and I thank you. I miss the days when JohnCoopersLuckyPig and Whoa Nellie used to churn out these volunteer gems. This is is solid! All these years after Pablo, and I'm still not sure what the hell I think of Radiohead. So interesting, which I suppose, is the point. Love some, okay with some, bored by some and confused by others stuff. I certainly appreciate their artistry and fierce independence.

Thanks for the update, Ernie. You're still in my thoughts, Calpoppy. Pretty darn frequently, if I'm being completely honest. I'm not even sure what this means, but although your battle is ultimately solitary, you are absolutely not alone. Not by a long shot. [What the hell did that guy just say?] [94's WTF gif] [Did Burgundy just channel Buck68 (whom I really like)]

@Frimmel - your take on the disc thingy is exactly how I took it. The Kree feared her full abilities and were restricting them, taking it a step further by convincing her that she lacked discipline and control. They also told her that they gave her power and could take it away. Pretty clear to me.

Alex Hornibrook playing QB for a team that cannot block worth a single crap. Alrighty then. Seems like a really odd choice for him. I hope he survives.

S&G - I'm in complete agreement with your whole post, especially the second part. Saw it w/my 11yo daughter and thought it was pretty great how they made the movie "Girl Power" centric, which was expected, but they did a great job with it. Even all of the music was from female bangs/singers. (Even the one that Fury sang). Liked the approach that it's not just Carol/CM's over-the-top super powers, but also her refuse to fail attitude and grit that combine to make her so powerful, similar to Cap. Daughter loved it.

Thanos is in for some shit.

Coop, you are one hearty soul. Best wishes. I would sincerely contemplate having both of my eyes pried out with a teaspoon vs living in the greater DC region. Not even kidding. That said, I have an old, close friend who has a business there and has been making bank for many years. He's doing great. I don't visit him -ever. He comes to me. Said the guy in NJ. Consider that chestnut for a moment. I'm thinking teaspoon FTW. To each his own and best wishes. Edit: my friend will retire well before me, and will have better stuff during said retirement. I acknowledge that.

I'd be #110% down with giving Arnette a shot at FS and Wade at corner. I firmly believe that both would excel in that scenario. Arnette is a very good tackler with middle of the road man cover skills. He's a FS, not a corner. It's high time someone told him. And Wade needs to be on the field, period. He's easily one of the best 4 DB's, IMHO.

"I'm surprised they didn't move Pryor to the hybrid LB/Safety job instead of White." Tackling is a problem for Pryor. Moving him even closer to the line of scrimmage may not be the best path forward for the D. His body says yes, but his lack of physicality says nope. Gotta get the ball carrier on the ground.

Everyday is still a battle. Some days/times I still don’t see a future for me. I don’t want to commit suicide but some days I don’t want to live.

I sometimes have the clarity/positivity to see that this might make me a better person.. other times I don’t believe I’m capable of getting/being better.

You're not alone here. Not at all. Yes, every day is a battle for some - more than you think - but just keep plugging away, and try to slow things down. The clocks move forward for most in the next week, or so, and the days get longer. That should help. Just hang in there for that and then you can always re-assess afterward. You're good right now. The rest can wait - no sweat.
