• Concerns of altitude sickness?

    I'll be hiking a mountain that reaches almost 11,000 feet in elevation within the next few weeks. A little background on myself...I'm young, healthy, relatively fit, and live essentially at sea level. However, I've never done a hike that gets nearly that high in elevation, and I don't think I've ever even been that high in elevation in general. As for the hike, it'll be a day hike. When we arrive at the base we'll be at about 2,000 feet, which doesn't concern me. However, what concerns me, is that we'll take a tram that'll take us up to 8,500 feet within 20 minutes. Then, from 8,500 feet, we will attempt to hike to the summit at 11,000 feet. Obviously I'll be hydrating the day before and day of, but I feel as though it's inevitable that my body will produce some type of altitude sickness symptom due to the quick gain in altitude. For anyone who's done something even remotely similar, how can I expect my body to react? Any tips? Thanks

  • Why don't people like the SEC?

    I am an alumni of an SEC West school. I love my team, I love the SEC. If I was a fan of any other team in the country outside of the SEC, I would probably hate them too. Why? Because they win. They consistently have great teams. Is there a bias? I don't think so. If your school's conference was this dominant over the past several years,... show more
    I am an alumni of an SEC West school. I love my team, I love the SEC. If I was a fan of any other team in the country outside of the SEC, I would probably hate them too. Why? Because they win. They consistently have great teams. Is there a bias? I don't think so. If your school's conference was this dominant over the past several years, what would you expect? The SEC has grown into the most powerful conference and deserve the respect and recognition. It's like in the NFL, when my Chargers play the Broncos, who will ESPN talk about? The inconsistent Chargers or Peyton Manning, who has, over time, grown into one of the best if not the best quarterback in NFL history? They talk about Peyton Manning and the Broncos. As for the top SEC West teams all losing their bowl games this season. They lost. Simple as that. But why do people say they're overrated? They all played great teams from other conferences. For example, if you take Ohio State from last night; that whole game was a grind for both teams. However, what's different about the SEC compared to the Big 10, is when the heart of the regular season rolls around, an SEC team has to play an Alabama-caliber team week after week. I think that is the big question. Could Ohio State or a similar team not only beat Alabama, but beat Auburn, LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and A&M? I don't think so. It's one thing to beat an SEC team in a bowl game, but a completely different story to beat SEC teamS during the season.

  • Throbbing pain near mole?

    I have this mole on my back just to the left of my neck and it's been there for as long as I can remember. I don't know when it started to change, but now it isn't so symmetrical and the mole is kind of all over the place. It's not very big, it's all the same color, it doesn't itch, it doesn't hurt, it's not scabbing,... show more

It's not very big, it's all the same color, it doesn't itch, it doesn't hurt, it's not scabbing, but it doesn't look like my other moles...the symmetry just isn't there. I don't know if this is just me being paranoid, but I'm having this dull, throbbing sensation (I don't want to call it "pain" because it doesn't really hurt) near my left upper arm and near my collarbone on the left side. I'd like to think it could be a pinched nerve or something because I was doing some rigorous activity with my arms two days ago, but I'm not sure. I'm going to go to a dermatologist soon, but any thoughts on what the throbbing could be would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    When Thomas fumbled that ball just now, I just started laughing. This game is a mess. Thank god Seattle's defense is good or this game would possibly go down as one of the worst Super Bowls ever.
