Throwing in a random Philly quote from another thread?

Come on, Work...if you're going to be a thread hijacker, at least put in the time and learn how to do it correctly.
LMAO

It was successful as there is 10 posts in this thread from another thread. Xmark's thread was getting derailed with banter and I moved them all here and the only noticeable thing was the quote.

First time that happened to me, it really wasn't all that painful. Knee felt kinda funny so I pulled up the pant leg and right before my eyes I watched the thing swell up just the same as your description. Looked like a special effect out of a movie. All I could think to myself was; "Damn, this is really strange....". Four or five days later and it was pretty much gone. (I did play it up in front of the wife for a few days though.)

yup that describes it pretty accurately. With ice, vitamin I (ibuprofen), and rest it went down and was kinda normal in three days. Yesterday I knelt on the grass for about ten seconds, and then watched it do what you describe - EXACTLY.

what was the long range affects, treatments, problems, etc ?

OH, BTW, gin cures the swelling better than bourbon or rum

in the staff room we have designated Steve's threads as 'Public Dumpster"

there's another dumpster where inappropriate stuff is stored (and where I can dumpster dive), but the non offensive extraneous off-topic stuff gets heaped onto Steve's shoulders

Good gin will cure everything.

No long range effects. Knee was kinda tender for a few days, a little uncomfortable to bend due to the fluid build-up. But everytime I got a funny feeling in my knee, I'd pull up the pant leg to see if anything was going to happen. I guess it would probably look kinda strange to someone seeing an old guy holding his pant leg up and staring at his knee for 5 minutes or so.

Better than pulling your pants down in public in order to check another body region.

Used to do wonders for me, well, until I got to drinking a fifth a night, then, not so much.

I had a headmaster who taught MODERATION.

Lesson has served me well these 45 past years.

He did make sure we understood that one person's moderation would be X amount, another's might be 2X, whereas still another's would be 1/2 X.

Luckily I'm in the 3X category

So Steve, besides the bee sting how else did the trip go? Were you out there to do any fishing or was this just a hang out and BS kind of trip (not that the two are mutually exclusive of each other)?

Last time we went camping was up in the foothills of the Cascades. Usually we are on the other side, in high lakes country, but this trip was on the western slopes. The last day we are breaking camp and about half a dozen scorpions scuttle out from under the tents. It was weird. Lived here all my life and have never seen the little critters on this side of the mountains - or on the other side for that matter. Nobody got stung though - just kinda creeped out.
Fishing. I was up and on the lake every morning at first light.
First year I didn't come home from there with fish for the freezer. They must have been feeding at night.

There was also a new Beaver *snicker* there this year, and his new dam had risen the water level quite a bit.
Can a new beaver on a small lake affect the fishing?

Also the first time we've ever encountered any wildlife officials there.
Two of them showed up the first day on ATVs, and said they were in the area to confirm bear-kills on some sheep. They told us that we (the state) pay the sheep owners for that out of wildlife funds. WTF?
Luckily we'd all bought fishing license.

I placed my first-ever satellite phone call from the lake. We got there a day before my brother, and I was able to call him and ask him to bring a coffee cup for one of my sons. ($100 well spent)

The place is at 9 or 10,000 feet...no scorpions..only bees.

Most certainly. Various State Fish and Wildlife Commission studies of popular fishing areas have determined that new beavers at popular fishing spots will affect the fishing rates by as much as 65%. Has nothing to do with the fish populations though, just that the guys aren't paying attention to their fishing poles.

Just got back fro camping at a place called Knoebles myself after a long weekend. It's in western PA. I only mention it here because if one were looking for a family friendly spot that's affordable with a full amusement park, big roller coasters and all, well it's a real good stop. Just saying. Two thumbs up for that place. Really.
