Well, that's OK, as long as you realize that it will take several weeks for the hot tub to get back to its full therapeutic mode.

"Also known as Seaweed therapy or Algae therapy. ... The principal behind thalassotherapy is that repeated exposure to sea air and immersion in warm seawater, mud, clay and protein-rich algae helps restore the body's natural chemical balance. Apparently seawater and human plasma are very similar."

That's the driver-controlled snow mode. Ice mode is hard-coded into the ABS. The brake on a specific wheel is literally disabled if the wheel lifts while it's being used. I'm not able to drive aggressively enough to have experienced it - stock tires on purpose.

I'm not sure what that all means when it comes down to a puppy but it sounds great!

Sorry, I prefer clear water. I put in enough bromine to kill my toe nail fungus. Nothing is growing in that water.

It's when the abs thinks you have no traction and releases the brakes for you so the tires turn... a prerequisite for traction on ice but when racing, just really bad.


Hard on the brakes... Behaves as if you were coasting in neutral.

I can't stand children. The screaming and crying makes my skin crawl. I've hated being around children literally my whole life. When my mom would drop me off at daycare I would cry not because I missed my mom but because I had to be around all the crying and the smell from the diapers.

Waking up every few hours to a screaming baby for years, being sick and exhausted all the time, freaking with school BS, the expense associated with raising them, not being able to have nice things because they destroy everything, not having the freedom to do what I want when I want to and quite literally exiting else that goes with it. I find no joy or pleasure in any of the things that parents say, "make it all worth it".

We had a scare recently and when she told me I was over come with an unstoppable anger and depression. It's not until it's clear there was no risk that I felt any sense of relief. Even still in not going to touch her until I get the snip next month.

Not to be rude(I promise) but I get this a lot. I just wish I could prove it not to be true without the lifelong consequences to go with it.

I am not a fan of children either even though I have two and two grandsons.

But...

Most babies do not need somebody getting up with them every few hours for years. If a baby is still waking up screaming after a couple of months they better be taken to see a doctor.
I have no clue what parents could be doing where they are sick and tired all the time.
School for my kids was easy. Pack them off in the morning and grab them in the afternoon. Or a babysitter would when we were both working. No BS involved.
The expense is minimal unless you indulge them.
My kids never destroyed a thing My drunken buddies and I did more damage than they ever could have.
Yes you freedom is a bit more restricted but it is if you have a dog. There are such things as babysitters.

In the end it is indeed worth the relatively small inconveniences.

It looks like you have either been exposed to some really horrible kids or got your impressions from movies and TV.

But...

All that aside there are many many people that don't have kids and that is totally their call. My son hates kids with a passion so they will never have any and that is just fine. It isn't for everybody.
