How's it going CF?

I've got a medically related question for you, I'm not looking for diagnosis or anything but on Wednesday I was rear ended while driving my company's vehicle. I wasn't seriously injured at the time, but now I'm feeling the effects of what I can only assume is whiplash.

So question is even though I'm only having some minor aches, I'm not even talking heavy workout when you don't normally workout kind of aches. Should I go to my doctor just on the off chance that something more serious might arise in the future from this or not?

Helpful notes I'm 26 have never had any back or neck injuries prior to this but I'm currently working in a manual labor job.

I went in after my rollover, and the doc wrote me a prescription to rest. Told me to stay in bed for three days and don't get up except to eat and use the bathroom. But I was in the army, so I worked 54 hours during those three days...

Anyway, I was fine. I had a lot of soreness and aching, but it went away after about a week. Now that isn't something I'm brushing off, because I don't know what happened to your body. All I can say is your situation sounds similar to mine, and I just tried to take it easy so my body could repair itself

I was just thinking I should "get it documented" just in case something happens, I'm not worried about it healing and I'm not looking for any time loss compensation. Accidents happen I understand that I'm not looking to screw this guy over, but on the other hand I don't want to get screwed over either.

I agree with your train of thought

Personally, I think it's a good idea to get checked out and have it documented. You don't have to sue the guy over it, but if something comes up later, the incident is recorded. Worse case scenario, if you need to file for SSDI, you've got hard copy of the injury.

I've injured my knee several times in my life and never had a problem recovering from it. Once was on the flight deck of a carrier and they blew me off about it. Now I'm 72 years old and that knee is a constant problem. I've been told to go for knee replacement surgery. NFW! I'm not going under the knife for something that might or might not fix it!

And on the 446th day he resurrected the thread.
Attachment 403241
Does anyone know the name of the sweet smell from the needles decomposing in the forest, my wife always calls it loam but upon looking that up that's not right. I love the smell it's amongst my top 5 favorite smells: in no particular order, that smell, skunk (the animal not the code word for the smell of weed, I have fond memories of a beach house where a skunk in the air ducts), weed (not a partaker but it's similar enough to the above), the ocean, passing by a field of cows (cow pies)
Yes I know they are weird but I have my reasons for each, mostly child hood memories.

I just think it's evergreens in general. I particularly love the smell of Tamaracks. The smell of salt water when you're getting near the ocean. The smell that really gets my blood racing is that first blast of exhaust from a radial aircraft engine starting up. I know...weird, right? Some people have a thing for a cold diesel, but I think it stinks! Likewise a jet engine.

Oh and I can't believe I forgot about California bay laurels or as they are known around here myrtlewood trees.

The one thing I remember about the south. The overpowering smell of honeysuckle. Especially at night.

Any home theater gurus here?
I'm debating between a Definitive Technology 5.1 system that I keep going back to listen to at Best Buy, and the SVS Ultra setup that people keep recommending to me. Significant price difference between the two. Considering a Pioneer SC-LX502 receiver because it's 40% off. Looking for 5.1 with expandability to at least 7.2.4 in the future. Keep in mind I'm in an end-unit townhouse with a neighbor attached to one side.

One of the most interesting things I have heard about your area down there is Iguana mating season. I don't know if they were bullshirting me or not, but they said it literally rains Iguanas at times. And some eat them as a delicacy and run around with their trunk lids open for them to land in. lol
