No. I have a blood disorder called Protein C Deficiency. I had a blood clot back in 1997 in my leg. I'm on COUMADIN which is a prescription medicine used to treat blood clots and to lower the chance of blood clots forming in your body. Blood clots can cause a stroke, heart attack, or other serious conditions if they form in the legs or lungs. After an analysis of my blood, they determined it was Protein C Deficiency. I've also been permanently excused from jury duty. I have to limit my travel to ~1 hour on a plane etc. Sucks. No more motorcycles, skiing, racing, etc.

The docs told me that I can't do anything that will risk an injury as I may bleed to death. In my 20's, I never even knew I had this issue.

Yep - I remember AGN. One of my first forums that I registered along with Anand when he was only 14 and testing hardware.

Well let's hijack this thread and turn it into the "WTF did I look like in my 20s?" thread.

Young Penguin... and yeah, I still have the beer. :)

It's amazing how people physically change over time. Just like me, looks like you put on a few pounds LOL. In that pic of me with the kart, my weight was only 190 lbs. Now I weigh 275 lbs. I'm 6'1" tall.

it's funny at one time i had so many members phone no. (going back to the days when are leader was mike -Blade) {sure miss him still} if memory service right 90 % of those were home no. if i were to find that list im guessing 95 % or more would be disconnected if i was to try calling them.

Fixed your links. Had to drop the HTTPS.

Funny, you SOUND like your younger photo on Teamspeak.

Thanks. It's bizarre that it works fine for me in Firefox and Edge with the HTTPS, but not with Chrome and Internet Explorer 11.
