My grandmother passed away at 96, and had been hoping to die for a few years beforehand. She was starting to lose her sight and had had a few near-misses. Plus she maintained that she knew where she was going after death and was actually eager.

She had a blockage surgically removed from her intestine at 94; when she woke up and saw my mother standing next to her bed, the first thing she said was, "Oh no."

Haha, wow.

My grandmother died two years ago. She had been living alone for 25 years, and loved being independent. She had always managed just fine on her own, too. She got sick and weakened very quickly; when my mom and her siblings took the car from her, she was VERY displeased. For years she had told them "If you try to put me in a home, I wont make it there. I'll just die! That would be better than the home."

Finally, my mom and aunt got her to sign the contract to move into a nursing home. That night she died. My mom called me the next day and told me the news...there was sort of an awkward silence, because I wasn't sure if I should say it so soon after...but then my mom did. "Well...she always told us she would die if we tried that." She was apparently quite serious.

You've got to respect someone who makes good on their word. Wait ... it wasn't a coke-fueled joyride shootout with a SWAT team, was it?

My grandmother was great for unintentionally laugh-out-loud quotes. Earlier on, one of my aunts (a retired nurse) was checking her blood pressure, as she had chronic low BP. We asked my aunt what the reading is: it's 20 over 0. My grandmother pipes up: "This thing says I'm dead. [PREGNANT PAUSE] But I'm not!"

Sorry about that dude. Honestly I barely ever feel sad at funerals. It's usually sometime after when I'm by myself that it hits me. Funerals are so public that it's kind of surreal to me.

You'll see something randomly that reminds you of something about her, and then you'll get sad. Which will confirm that you are actually human.

Hahaha awesome.

I enjoyed when the doorbell would ring on a TV show and my grandmom would go to our door, answer it, and then course at the damn kids who rang it and ran away....she'd also do this for the phone. "Those sons of *****es" was here favorite line for when this happened.

So a few things..


1. What guy would purposely poke holes in a condom to get his gf pregnant?

2. That is a sexual assault, should it be sexual assault if a girl lies to a guy about taking birth control?

I think there is an iPhone app that a subwoofer manufacturer sells that can give you a rough guess. I think it's made by JL Audio, but I'm not sure. I wouldn't trust it for anything other than a rough guess though.

If you wanted to get a really good idea you could get a decent mike and send it to your soundcard in your laptop and use a free program called TrueRTA too see it. That program is mostly used by car audio professionals to tune systems to sound their best, so it can take a TON of other really useful measurements regarding your sound system. Once I finish the sound system in me Jeep I'm thinking about getting a signal processor and using that program (and a signal processor) to time align all the speakers and get feedback to help tune my equalizer perfectly.

So one of my friends got (lightly) mugged last night. But it was kind of his fault. There's absolutely no reason to talk to shady dudes selling weed on the corner. Even if you're just being friendly. I'm from a city I know this. He's from Indianna. He was like "oh but I use to talk to people on the street all the time at Purdue after the bars" Yeah so did I at Penn State but this is not ****ing Purdue or Penn State...this is ****ing Chicago with sketchy ass people. He's lucky they only got his phone before me and my other friend saw and ran over. Six dudes. One had him in a headlock while the rest went through his pockets. ****ing lucky he didn't get beat the **** up or stabbed.

There's a difference between being sad and crying. Everyone grieves in their own way, so don't start questioning how you react compared to other people. For six months I watched my grandfather wither away and eventually die of cancer, and the only time I cried was when I was by his bedside holding his hand and it was obvious that while he was still breathing, he wasn't going to wake up again. I said something along the lines of, "Grandpa, I'm here," to which he responded by squeezing my hand with whatever morsel of strength he had remaining. It was at that moment that the reality of the situation truly hit me. Even then, I cried for only maybe 5-10 minutes or so. The next day, I was there along with six other family members and his personal doctor when he finally stopped breathing, and I was the only one who didn't cry. I also didn't cry at the funeral. I thought there might be something wrong with me emotionally, but then I realized that not crying didn't marginalize how I felt about my grandfather or somehow deemphasized how much I loved him. I think a lot of my disposition had to do with the fact that I had been mentally preparing myself for his death for months before it finally happened, and that I chose to celebrate his life and all his accomplishments -- he survived the Holocaust as a teenager, received a PhD in physics from the Sorbonne in Paris despite not speaking French when he first arrived, went on to become a renowned inventor with a ridiculous 77 patents to his name, and was an entrepreneur who started his own company and built it into a multi-billion dollar worldwide corporation -- instead of focusing on the sadness that accompanied his passing. Now I'm just hoping that one of my kids is lucky enough to inherit his brain.
