First I've looked at this thread in a while. Really surprised that the 30th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death, 30 years ago on 5th April, hasn't been mentioned. That made me feel ancient. Remember it like it was last week.
I was watching programmes about Kurt and his demise last weekend. I was wondering where those years went too. It still feels quite recent to me.

Was it on a grand national day as well? I remember arriving at my mate's in a cheery mood and everyone was miserable

Went to a barbers today that I haven’t been for a while, was 2017 the last time I went in. Thought it was about 3 years ago.

2017 is as far away from now, as 2010 was from 2017…

it can be loads of horrible things or as simple as dehydration (which is serious but easily rectified), if you're feeling other wise okay in yourself Debs, though I'd still err on the side of caution and get a check over, blood pressure etc, have a look at how much water you're getting.

I never drink water and never have done since I left primary school, I drink loads of coffee though 😁

Yeah my blood pressure is always a bit on the low side, as is my pulse and resting heartbeat but my stress levels are low too.

I once got rushed to and admitted into hospital from work, ambulance the lot, as I was hyperventilating and when they did my blood pressure they went to get a different machine as it was so low they thought the machine was broken.

I thought that going for an ECG today - finally got round to it - would make me feel young, but quite a few people in their 20s were in the waiting room among the older patients. Good to see that generation taking their health seriously. I doubt I would have showed up even if my GP referred me when I was in my 20s. It took me weeks to get round to it even now.

Oh yeah, don't be an idiot like me and power walk 3 miles to the hospital after a coffee for an ECG, as I was seen quickly (expected a long wait) and I only just got my heart rate down to a 'normal' level (resting is ~50 usually). It was supposed to be a resting ECG. Got my steps in though. ;D

It was 40 or below when I was running and in great shape, so 50-60 is a sign I could be in better shape. It's all relative - e.g. 90 is normal for some people.

The nurse told me today that someone once came in with a pulse of 17 and insisted they were feeling ok.  :o

Mine is nearly always below 50.

What the fuck is cloud seeding?

Basically throw salt - or silver iodide - into suitable clouds to condense water vapour that then falls as rain. Used in quite a few countries - even here in the UK - during droughts. Only works on existing clouds though, so unlikely to be the cause of the Dubai floods.

Apologies. I've cut out salt in my diet, so I had a lot to spare and I didn't want to waste it.

Next year I will see the grandsons of the local ice hockey players I grew up with watching play. nice in a way but time flies

Pulled my hamstring running down the stairs. What makes me feel old is I sat on the floor to stretch it and I cant even get close to touching my toes. I fucked  my hamstring good and proper many years ago when I was still playing football so it's always been a bit tight but this is weird. I can do the right leg fairly easy but I cant get closer than about 6" to my left foot.

My mates lad recently joined the police, he's only 21. It didn't hit home until I seen him in the uniform. Genuinely only seemed like the other week he was born and we were all terrified of holding him. Now he is supposed to go into boozers to break up fights!

Thats my point mate,  and theirs, £4 is now seen as cheap.
I remember in the 90s moaning that I was paying £2.

Fiver for a pint of Madri in Gallagher's Traditional Pub, Birkenhead, but worth every penny as it's an idiot free pub.
The only other idiot free pub around there is the Swinging Arm which sells mainly very decent German beer for around a fiver as well.

Good to see Gallagher’s is still going.

Do they still offer the barber service as well as a decent pint?

Having a bad back for no reason at all. 

No idea what I've done or how/when I've done something but it's gone into a weird spasm type thing if I try to move 😞

Yeah I might have to resort to medication but might try my wheatie thing first.  Maybe heat treatment will help more 🤷

I know when I slipped a disc and went straight for physio, my GP had a right cob on with me for not going in for meds as he said I needed them to stop the spasms. I ended up on valium, god they were ace :lmao
