  1. I can play this week. But we might also need to table the game until next week. I sort of expect RG to shut down the forum, or limit who can post on Thursday and Friday (due to the exams), and that tends to carry into Monday morning of the following week too. So maybe we wait until next week to play, maybe try to recruit some of the noobs that start showing up? @Dothracki won't be the FNG in a week

  2. I recently resumed volunteering at the local animal shelter after they started reopening following covid lockdown! I began weightlifting in June 2020 and I think I'm slowly getting okay at it (I think...?) My best friend finally bit the bullet and instead of waiting for their 'official' wedding day, went to town hall and got married after I kept badgering her and her wedding date got moved three times. Slowly understanding more of this new government job and have already proved myself to being awesome. Undergraded, but going to use that to my advantage and attempt some lower-g

  4. I was actually collecting names to try and run something when I read this. I'm cool with waiting. Not sure if we should run my crazy idea with new people though. I'd say that we keep it simple.

  5. Did Friday and Saturday workout (yay) and planning on not missing and MWFSat workouts until the end of the month, because I paid for them! Friday was Zercher squats, which I'd never done before. Got to around 10kg each side (so total of 35kg lift, I think)? I believe I could have gone heavier, but it was also my first time doing the movement, so I wanted to err on the side of caution. My inner elbow did hurt a bunch right after, but I think that's just because of how this squat is. Saturday was more bench press, but we were doing not normal reps. I know there is a specific term

  17. Um. That's how mafia works. You make a suggestion and then have to ride it out. I have overnight work potentially starting for the next few weeks (maybe months, if the other job starts right up). My plan was to do my normal work schedule + a couple evening hours, but we'll see. So I'm out.

  18. One time the WOD called for 2 pood KB swings and the only KB left was the 3 pood. My hammies and grip were on fire after that WOD.

  19. If the workout calls for 53 lb KB and all that is left when you go to grab one is a 55Lb’er then that makes it an RX+ workout right??

  20. @meganI got a reassuring response from NCEES. "This (PE) exam is a national exam and the results are accepted by all boards, regardless of who approved you to take it and where you sat for the exam." Florida Board of Professional Engineers said something to the same effect.

  25. Chuck Tingle. Omg. I have Friday night Zoom calls with friends back in TX and we spent one of those evenings reviewing the titles of his stories. LOL. They are way too NSFW to post here, but they are a RIDE.

  26. As much as I would love to try playing JP's variant: I'm starting a new job next week and also busy with studying. Therefore, I'm out and will probably be out until after my exam. I'm sure I'll peek in here from time to time. Feel free to use me as a NPC!

  29. typical misleading headline (WSP acquired one of the firms involved in the design) https://www.newcivilengineer.com/latest/wsp-faces-fiu-bridge-collapse-lawsuit-despite-not-being-involved-in-project-28-09-2020/?tkn=1 ^- Some good figures in the article though. I still say these type of "cutesy" ped bridges shouldnt be designed, or built at all, especially when using tax payer money, build the standard ugly ped bridge with some Bulb-T beams and standard bents this doesnt happen.. If private money wants to make the bridge "look cool" then fine, bill them for the upgrades (& t
