    Good article Patrick. I think about things like that a lot. I try my hardest to be as safe as possible at work. I do everything the way it's supposed to be done. Unless it makes the task more dangerous. Which as we all know happens more often than you'd think . I fell timber for years. I've owned my own tree service for even longer. Safety is always on my mind. What's the worst I've been hurt in 25 years? I fell in a well leaving the gym one night. It was an old well not in use. Had one tile above ground someone had backed into it and moved the tile about 8 inches. After leg night and I couldn't hardly walk I slip off in it. Nice piece of rebar sticking out. Rips my leg open up one side and eats all the skin off the other. Had to have stitches. Long story but we are never safe. I climb, race bikes, fly PPGs and all kinds of dumb things. And then that happens. Years ago we worked for a well known timber company. I was supposed to wear hard hat, steel toed saw resistant boots, chaps, ear muffs, safety glasses and a screen, carry a first aid kit with a mirror and a whistle. And about 8 other things. You can't do that in 100 degree weather and survive. Not to mention get anything done. Safety is great. I'm as safety conscious as anyone but things happen. In flying its called risk vs reward. You learn the risk and if it's worth the reward then you do it knowing the dangers. We do that everyday as arborists. Again nice article Patrick.

    I've seen a video where a guy uses 3 rings on an adjustable sling and the middle ring is a bit higher than the outside 2 rings. It makes a very nice bend radius. I'll see if I can find it.

    I like the looks of that knife...will probably get one. Reminds me of a Benchmade I used to have that got lost.

    I hear you, Jim...and you too, Butch. I have thought a lot about a carry firearm these last few years. So far, I'm more of a blade packing sort. Here's my everyday defense knife... https://www.gerbergear.com/Knives/Folding/EVO-Titanium-Coated-Knife_22-41432. A flick blade is a fearsome weapon in knowledgeable hands. That will be the case there too, as it is here every day. I can go almost anywhere with this beast clipped in my pocket. I'm not happy about the idea of using it to hurt another human being, but I have no qualms about doing so to keep my love M, or my friends, or myself, or even some innocent bystander, from harm should some one wish anyone in that group harm. Frankly, my aluminum walking pole is a deadly weapon in the hands of a trained person...and I am both equipped with the same, and trained by a father who never would tell me how he learned the skills with a stick that he passed on to me when I was a teenager.

    Wow, Gary, great post! I had never heard of either of the above mentioned items. I did not take time to read through the whole explanation of the Valsalva Maneuver just yet, as it is highly detailed and it is getting late. I need to read through it when I'm fully alert to get the max benefit from it. I thought they said that power lifters use the technique, though. My bet is that the second thing you proposed, respiratory alkalosis, is the correct guess as to what happened to him, as trying to sing hard is exactly the activity he was engaged in. Unbelievable that someone on such a relatively small forum would know the answer to this. Thanks again. Tim

    I actually wonder what that might need to be, camping within a stone's throw of the US/Mex. border, these days. Any advice from recent experience...love to hear it.
