Why is Conner McGregor even in the public conversation?

The same reason the Kardashians are.

Why is it that I can stick three fingers into the palm side of my wrist cast, when I can't get one finger into the back side where I itch?

Because your fingers don't bend backwards, ergo, less space needs to be accounted for on that side.

A toilet brush is good for scratching your backside when you have poison ivy...  I've been told.

True story.

Got married early June. After honeymoon, back home in Columbus, IN. Went out for a run, saw some tiger lilies along the road, decided to pick some for my new bride. Unfortunately, they were surrounded by poison ivy. Unfortunately, I had to pee along the roadside before I got home. You can fill in the rest, but it was a good 3 weeks or so before I didn’t look like the Hulk.

I was never allergic to poison ivy or oak even though my older brothers were. I was a cocky bastard 30 years ago and waded into a patch of woods with a gas weed eater with my short shorts and no shirt to clear out underbrush and a day or two later was completely covered. It was miserable. I've been allergic since.

Nope. Left in the late 80's. As my poster name suggests, live in NE Indiana now.

Why, you gonna come stalk me? 😁

 

Lime Lake...small fishing lake attached to Lake Gage. We can get over to Gage on our deck boat to take the grandkids tubing, but don't have the knuckleheads ( i.e. jet skiers) buzzing us in the early hours. We are a no-wake lake and fits us perfectly.

Being a little league baseball coach ,is it wrong to actually coach? Or should I just stand there and clap and say good job?

1st 2 games this year I got criticized by other coach and their fans for my kids stealing bases, for running when pitcher goes from windup instead of the stretch, for bunting to.move a runner. In game 2 for playing a shift since no one could even touch my pitcher? 

For some crazy reason I thought as a coach we were supposed to learn how to play the game as well as helping shape these young men. Maybe I am just too over zealous 😀

More importantly, do you chew tobacco and scratch yourself in the dugout?
