    The expensive malls have all the disabled parking taken. Not so much at less expensive malls and Walmart. Rich people buying DP parking is legal abuse.

    The likely problem is that water got in there and resulted in corrosion between the axle and the shaft. Spray WD-40 or PB blaster where this corrosion has built. Let is sit for a couple minutes....

    An airless tube may be at 90% rolling resistance efficiency compared to a conventional tube but it never gets worse. How often are your tires at 100% recommended pressure? Maybe for a few days and...

    It's still gray. I guess it's not that bad after all.

    Yep. Wouldn't let that thing in my house unless I had sensation. That's another injury waiting to happen.

    More negativity from you. Sometimes venting helps people get over hurdles. Sometimes just the process of discussion helps people better sort things out. In hindsight I would have approached the...

    Sometimes it's not what you say but how you say it.

    "If you can not recognize and appreciate..." is negative and condescending not supportive.

    Then you proceed to condescend everyone who...

    And I thought I was overstepping. We're not here to psychoanalyze, judge, and shame. We're here to answer questions and support each other. The fact that he's paying while she's demanding her way is...

    It would never be my money and her choice. If she wants what she wants so badly, she'd better be contributing something other than her wonderful company. I'm just not that "romantic."

    Don't mean...

    Those X-core wheels look great. But they are heavy, noisy, and bumpy. Never again.

    I'm willing to do it if there's a light at the end of the tunnel. But you have to be careful not to overdo it, which is what I think I did. I used to ambulate with braces and crutches. My injury is...

    With most hand controls you have to select which hand applies gas. You have to steer with the other. No choice. With push pull hand controls (I use the Freedom Staff), you may have the choice on...

    I went through the same thing. We aren't together anymore. I doubt we would be together today if I had agreed to the colors she wanted. We would still be split up and I would have a house I didn't...

    Whereas aluminum may fracture vs flex.

    Want to rethink your statement that there isn't an advantage to titanium over aluminum?
  16. Easier not in the sense of manufacturing...

    Easier not in the sense of manufacturing challenges but in the sense of design possibility. Titanium has superior tensile strength, which enables using less material (less weight) for the same...

    While a titanium chair isn't necessarily lighter than an aluminum chair, it is easier to make it lighter with titanium than aluminum.
  19. If kidney stones are the reason for the spasms,...

    If kidney stones are the reason for the spasms, you can turn up the pump until you're in a coma and you'll still get spasms. Before getting the stones removed, my baclofen dose was at 500 ug/day and...

    I had similar spasms. They were always on edge and the slightest stimulus would make them go haywire. Of course, you can expect some spasms just from the SCI. But for me, the culprit was kidney...

    You say that the DME is offering you their services but they aren't doing it under the terms and conditions of their BCBS contract. When your DME tries to negotiate a different price than what is in...

    Super glue probably works for the manufacturer because the strip shape will match the groove shape when new. But if the strip is old and worn the two shapes won't match and you need a filler,...

    I used to rely on those guys' judgement before I realized how badly they can mess it up. They're still a good resource. Just don't trust them 100% and do your own due diligence. Eventually, you'll be...

    Two big advantages with titanium are weight and no maintenance. I want to resurrect my Quickie Titanium because it is significantly lighter than anything else I ever used. Doesn't make any difference...
