Dagnabit, Tank, you're making me miss Texas and I've never even lived there! I used to drive down all the time when I lived in OKC, though, partly to visit my sister in Dallas and partly to buy Shiner. 

 

Currently sipping a bourbon highball, neat.

In stumbles a ranger, looking dazed and confused.

She steps in quietly after holding the door for the Ranger ahead of her. No longer a young wood pixie, she squeaks when she walks.  She's wet to the corn husk bone with a smile on her face having found a nearby spring. She walks to the nearest empty chair, drops her pack to the floor, shakes once, kicks her shoes off and sits deeply in the comfy chair. Her eyes close partially, but her smile is full and relaxed.

"Oh, it has been some time since last I was here."

Hey Jarric,

I'll take partial credit for the arrangement of it (using paint.net - think free photoshop), but the corn husk guy is a separate picture from the foliage picture. I'm diggin' usin' layers!

Hi Everyone!  I have been very overwhelmed with life stuff lately, and being social has required too much mana for the last couple challenges.  But things are calming down now, so I'm going to try to be a little bit more social!

Hello Fellow Adventurers! I'll take one of whatever's cold. This armor gets heavy after a long day of riding.

 

I'm still parsing out my class (Bike Adventurer seems to fit for now) and I haven't exactly cloaked my challenge's goals in fantasy, but I'm excited to do some good work this challenge.

Hey there fellow NF'ers! Not doing a challenge thread this time around, but figured I should get back on here and say hi to more folks. Good luck all! Go crush those challenges!

 

Everybody needs a non-challenge or an intermission from time to time. Enjoy the break! :)

I mentioned this on the Discord, but thought I'd throw out the question here as well. In the UK the health service are looking at an official recommendation that a healthy person's waist measurement should be no more than half of their height. I get correlating waist measurement and health risk factors (it's a pretty blunt tool, but for a layperson it's an easy number to come by), but 50% seems very low. Is that just me, or is a waist measurement of 50% of your height pretty skinny for most people?

This is, I think, the same issue as using BMI as a health indicator. It's a very blunt tool for determining a binary overweight/not overweight. I wouldn't put any serious stock in it. There are better measurements to use on an individual level.

I think "pretty skinny" is what the measurement is aiming for. Taking my own measurements, I'm right on that 50% line.

 

Again, I wouldn't put much stock into it.

Well, I’m 5’7”, which is 67 inches, so a max waist of 33.5 would be pretty large for me. YMMV, of course.
