1) Toys R Us is closing down in the states. 800 stores. 33000 jobs. Lost childhood memories.
2) 20 years blogging (or anything that consistent) is no mean feat. With such a timeline, you really get to see your growth. And yes, I do cringe at my past (notes and everything else). Just like Jason Kottke:
3) I've started taking magnesium supplementation. It's more than a supplement; it's a drug (and hey, even IV fluids should be thought of as drugs and not something completely benign). It helps with insomnia (a byproduct of my pharmacologically revved up lifestyle) and sleep quality. It helps with blood pressure and sugars (more studies are needed). It even boosts testosterone levels (and yes, I'm not on roids). It's one of the best utilitarian drugs in anesthesia and ICU (used to manage pain, blood pressure, anesthetic requirements (especially with TIVA vs inhalational anesthesia), rhythm abnormalities, general ICU outcomes, effects on other electrolytes (especially managing hypokalemia), everything). Let's see if it improves my overall well-being. And I've done the calcuation: 1 tablet of this is equivalent to 15 mmol of magnesium. And I take it for immediate effect rather than a slow release: I slowly chew on it with water in my mouth (don't try it yourself unless if you are a masochist) right before bed.
