F**K Anatoly’s Mom’s Disease

The Neubie is still impressing the heck out of me. I’ve made more lasting improvements and experienced more carryover with this machine than with all of my other treatments combined. After 4 months of home use, I’m happy to report the following improvements in my left leg: Am I walking better? Nope. Am I improving…

Good Advice

I LOVE reading advice columns and gravitate toward any sort of instructional teachings in general. That’s probably why The Dear Abby and Erma Bombeck infatuations of my youth, have led my down the digital rabbit hole of today’s podcasts, Am I The Asshole (AITA) Sub Reddits, Ted Talks, and Twitter feeds not to mention a…

Fucking-Feasance? Although I’m not a lawyer, Trump has clearly carried out all three types of failures like…
