    Is that a thing? Would have never crossed my mind if you hadn't brought it up.

    They say alcohol hurts your sleeping.

    It always seemed to help mine!

    Alcohol absolutely hurts sleep. I'm told women especially tend to wake up or have a disturbance at 2-3am. Sounds familiar?

    I don't recall the mechanism, alcohol stimulates the appetite, and also does something that specifically promotes fat storage. It's high calorie, too.

    The only time I put on weight in my life was when I was drinking more, and not climbing, and eating like I was.

    So far, it hasn't helped my sleeping much.

    Perhaps that will kick in gear eventually.

    I can't wait to stop sweating so much! IIRC, that takes a couple months.

    So far I'm loving it!

    Nothing to it.

    I was one of the lucky ones.

    Ha this one is a doozy- The state report analyzing the escape of 2 felons from the upstate NY prison last year. Strong similarities to The Shawshank Redemption. One of the guys was extremely smart, resourceful and hardworking.

    One thing I always wondered was how they cut their way thru 3/16" thick steel walls of their cells with a hacksaw blade. Sure, cutting steel starting on the edge of it is understandable, but how do you cut thru the face of the steel?? The simple answer on pages 39-41. Photos thru out the report. A few parts are skippable but a lot of it reads like a book.

    I wish there was a Cliff's Notes version!

    Interesting read.

    Very interesting. Reads like an investigative novel.

    Imagine cutting thru all that steel with half a hack saw blade.
