Muscle memory and keen positioning for hand control without looking!!! As well ambidextrous.
A friend of mine recently sent me some pictures they took at a party back when I was 17 or 18. Man I could barely get a comb through that mop back then. Fast forward 15 years, still have lots of hair, its just thinned out a bit but only on the front. Hope I don't have the bald gene but if I do I guess I'll rock the Kim Mitchell or Joe Satriani look.I had a teacher in high school that had male pattern baldness. He had 4 or 5 hairs that were probably 20 feet long and in the morning he would weave them back and fourth over the bald area. To him in the mirror it must have looked like he had hair but it looked terrible.
My hair line is starting to recede, taller fore head syndrome. I have very bushy eyebrows. I used get my barber to trim them but now I have been letting them grow for a few months out so I can comb them back so no one will know I am going bald.
Drummers never get the credit they deserve. Each arm and leg moving in a different time, keeping their place in the song. Then take someone like Don Henley or Phil Colins who also singMuscle memory and keen positioning for hand control without looking!!! As well ambidextrous.
What's wrong with people?Rick Allen is an amazing drummer despite having 25% less limbs to work with.
Anyone hear about this?

Honestly, people are ****ed these days.What's wrong with people?
My blood sugar used to spike in the morning. (Not diabetic) I started taking a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water before bed for acid reflux. Cured my reflux, and no sugar spikes in the am.Had my followup with the doctor this morning. No clone to transfer my brain into so I have to live with this body for awhile longer. Hit the red line for A1C of 6.5. No diabetes drugs yet but supposed to go with the wife to listen to a life style couch tell us about diet and exercise. Doc ordered a test kit so I can test blood sugar a couple of times a week. Once in the morning before eating and another time at least two hours after eating just to get a base line for when the levels rise. He said it not something I had to do but he thought it might be a help. Told him I've done oil sampling on equipment for more than forty years and that I can relate to his comments.
At any rate I haven't rooted my butt in the chair yet so haven't started counting down retirement time yet.
Always lots to keep one busy in retirement. My father gave up the full time wrench gig, and started driving wrecker for a friend of his before he died. Mechanic, slash machinist, slash welder, slash electrician, slash social worker at my work retired, and hasn't stopped since.Done here April 15th, already hauled 50% plus of tools home. Company will get a
two week notice on the 31st. With the way the repair is being handled through the
boys in yellow and gray it's such a mess I don't want to deal with it anymore.
My friend that own's a machine shop needs someone about two days a week at times,
plus other small stuff people want I will have something to while away the hours.
I had a CT scan and xrays on Monday late afternoon, talk to doctors today. I know what they
are going to say.
I don't feel anything with the projected diabetes. The reflux though just kills me for days. I'll have to try the apple cider vinegar and see if that helps. Problem though is that the check valve on top of my stomach is worn out and doesn't hold anymore.My blood sugar used to spike in the morning. (Not diabetic) I started taking a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water before bed for acid reflux. Cured my reflux, and no sugar spikes in the am.
GenX and Z have no clue as to what life was like in the 1960s or the 1950s for that matter.
