Now that one was a poison of mine, quit it in Oct. I initially drank 5-HE's and then RBs as easy coffee subs, but RBs crept up on me over time. It was easy to stop RB cold turkey in terms of no discernible wakeful issues, but I had a wicked ass spell of Z disturbance, extremely hard to drop off and then to stay asleep for more than 3-4 hour chunks for at least 3 solid weeks. I suspect withdrawals might've manifested in a paradoxical manner cus I'd sleep fairly normally while drinking it.

I can't do any alcohol with any stimulant added. Being (bleep) faced drunk and unable to sleep it off is the worse feeling.

And during traumatic events it gets worse. If there's a gap in time, our brains go back and fill it in. For example, some of the aforementioned near-death experiences, when the person's brain was hypoxic and shutting down (and incapable of forming memories anyway) there were reliable video records of the experience and the recovery. The patients had taken bits & pieces from the recovery -- long after the event -- consolidated them and filled-them into the missing time. The result is that they fully remembered an "experience" that never happened.


I've seen a million Forensic Files type shows and there are 2 cases that come to mind where the alternative to what you said took place and the victims pieced together the actual experience, which just highlights the complexity of the brain and mind that either an actual or imaginary experience can come to the fore. Both cases naturally disturbing. One was a girl who was abducted, raped and strangled, but the rapist unknowingly failed to kill her before he fled. She woke up and was dazed and walked nude for a few miles to find the nearest house or passerby for help. The whites of both her eyes were completely red. There wasn't much doubt that she must've been almost terminally hypoxic. Her memory gradually came back to her over a few days and she was able to remember the make of the vehicle she was abducted in as well as half of the license plate number and they eventually caught the rapist. She had bitten him on the scrotum and he was convicted largely due to bitemark evidence, which is considered pseudoscience, but in this case it was lock-cinch because she had braces that left their own marks above the tooth marks and they matched on an overlaid display.

Another was a young woman who was raped by someone that she was convinced that she had known from somewhere, but she couldn't place him. It was something like 5-10 years before she finally could pinpoint who she was convinced that it was and the guy had slipped back into normalcy w/ a wife/kids thinking he had gotten away with it, but the police took her seriously and investigated him and eventually got the confession. It turned out to be some guy she worked with at a mall. She worked in a booth and he would come up and talk to her and the other women there and was the affable, nonthreatening type of predator.

I'd say that one ended after Shaq. The era of the dominant center wasn't an everlasting fixture, it was simply the confluence of a number of excellent 7 footers who all happened to be born in a 30 year span. After Russell, Chamberlain, Thurmond about 5-10 years prior followed Alcindor, Gilmore, Walton, Parish, Sampson, Olajuwon, Ewing, Daugherty, Robinson, O'Neal. That's a singular coincidence that will never happen again. It sure hasn't been matched since Shaq. And Sam Bowie was an injury bust, not a talent bust. He had legit talent, could hit open jumpers, one of the best passing centers, hit drivers hard in the paint right to the end (Kemp, 95 playoffs). It was sad what happened to him, but his shins were made of chalk. He was cursed like Bynum. Jerome Kersey fell into his leg a la Kobe to Bynum, he snapped his shin on a turnaround shot in 86 and then during his very first warmup in the Blazers' first preseason game where he was slated to return, his leg broke again just by landing from a jumpshot. Sam was a warrior for sticking it out. He had a harder path than even Walton did w/ the foot issues, imo.

You omitted one of the best passing C the game has known, Bill Walton. When Portland won the championship in 1977 they had so many layups because of his passing the game had shades of a layup drill.

Bill was a victim of his time just like Kupchak after the ACL tear. I have a Chick interview w/ Bill circa 82 where he was discussing some of the work he had done on his feet. Grant Hill years later was able to return from foot frailness and played til the cows came home. Despite the teams he was on, it's never good when a passer his caliber (and player) gets hobbled in his prime. Kupchak w/ that ACL, sh he was out from Dec 81 to what, the 84/85 season? The Millennial and Gen Z maggots who claim today is better than the 2Ks and backward are right in terms of medical advancement, but that's not something that they ever cite in their silly quips. It's one of the most important differences between now and then. Mike in 86 breaking his foot... Just imagine of that guy had recurrent problems that hobbled him for most of his prime. He'd be the Bo Jackson of bball.

Carey is terrible in that role. Since TPIR is such an iconic show, it must go on, but that and the other ones that were very popular in the 80s like Family Feud and the 25K Pyramid aren't gonna be topped by the most notable hosts. Richard Dawson, Dick Clark, and Alec Trebek had either the sass in Dawson's case, or the right temperament and precision of Clark and Trebek that made those shows watchable. Clark and Trebek were always keen to correct the tiniest of mistakes and were fully invested every minute of those old episodes. I saw a recent reboot of Pyramid and it was absolute garbage. The host couldn't corral the contestants and the "celeb" players were all idiots. Pyramid also required celeb players of a certain temperament if possible. Ones like Markie Post. Larry from 3s Co was excellent. People who can speak clearly and come up w/ good clues. The reboot was a dumpster fire.

As for Fam Feud, most of the post-Dawson hosts weren't great, but Ray Combs, who succeeded Dawson in the late 80s was an amiable, funny guy. I thought he was likable, but they fired him and he eventually committed suicide after his life imploded. Sad story, he attempted it 2-3 times before he found the isolation to achieve it. Steve Harvey is OK, better than Louie Anderson who was Careyish. Harvey has that one trick of the shocked face when they give answers to a sexually implicit question.

No one will replace Trebek. He wasn't the first host, but he's the Mike Jordan of the list.

If you listen to a few Ramones songs, they sound like the very cool punk band you remember. If you listen to about fifteen ramones songs, they sound like a band that has three grooves and very little lyrical variety or creativity.

Allen Ludden's understated Midwestern charm was effective on Password, I thought. I liked Regis Philbin on a fairly recent version, and liked him on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire as well. (Come to think of it, I also liked Bert Convy as a Password host during a version in the 80's, I believe.) Peter Tomarken on the original Press Your Luck I liked. Bob Eubanks is another.

For me, Dick Clark on the Pyramid shows was the best game show host ever. I'd put Trebek just behind him. Markie Post and Richard Kline were already mentioned as great Pyramid guests, and I'd add Adrienne Barbeau and Vicki Lawrence to that list. Oh, and Billy Crystal was awesome as well.

Watch the video montage of Richard Dawson kissing every woman who ever set foot on a game show stage and tell me where he ranks. Dude was the gangster of love. He’d kiss a man’s mother wife and daughter and the dude would be smiling on proudly.

Richard Dawson was known for wearing a flower in his lapel. He was nicknamed "The Kissing Bandit" for kissing every female contestant. ABC asked him to stop, he refused. He asks the audience if he should stop. They gave an overwhelming NO. Kissing female contestants became his trademark.

I like Steve Harvey, Family Feud. He has a quick wit and IMO dresses nicely. What I admire most about him is his perseverance. He rose from living in his car for 3 years to a reported net worth of $200 Million.

Bert Convy was the only iteration of Password I remember, from the Eightiesfied Super Password era. Sajak and Chuck Woolery are/were good hosts, but they're both reds and in Chuck's case, unfortunately, a Trumper. They don't automatically come to my mind in part due to that, but in part because I've never been even a casual watcher of WoF or Love Connection. And iirc Chuck was the initial host of Wheel.

He was slightly before my time, but I've seen clips of the older version w/ the sliding card/pre-monitors clues in movies. There's a small scene of him in Twilight Zone: The Movie from 82/83, but Fleming epis were still in syndication until Trebek started in 84, so most of my lived experience was w/ Trebek. And I didn't start watching even semi-regularly til I was a late teen to boot.

He was already believably malevolent before he played the host in The Running Man w/ Arnie. Barker punching Sandler in that one golf movie was funny because it was unbelievable. Kinda like June Cleaver translating jive. Dawson as a sadistic prick was the opposite. Not saying he was one, but again, re: Fs, he gave none. It's something about the entire picture of him plus the voice. I've seen him in reruns of the 70s Hollywood Squares and it was clear that he was a swinger pre-FF.

I don't find Jennifer Hudson's voice appealing at all. She's famous, rich, technically good as a singer, and more technically sound than Blige, but the voice itself is unattractive to me. I don't have that qualm w/ Whitney, Aretha, Turner, etc, etc. I don't think anyone sounds like Aretha, but Hudson seems to be just the person available to play her in another, probably bad, movie about an icon. I don't think her voice is particularly distinctive in any way.
