Let me have to do something for a couple of hours and I come back and find all of these removed post? You boys should be ashamed of yourselves. The orangeness of your removals is most disturbia. Do you feel better now? And if anybody ever thought I would put on a sack rack like that must have lost there minds....

I haven't been to the municipal pool since I was maybe 12. Would go to our pond a lot, take a raft and walk the ducks down with me and we'd all have a swim. Usually would come out with leaches, but that wasn't too big of a deal. Until the time I was floating around on the raft and I saw a big snake skimming across the pond's surface...that put and end to that for me.

I prefer the beach. But Lake Perry will do in a pinch. I need a boat though. Or a boy with a boat. Aye Aye captain...

The pool is my happy place until the children arrive and start splashing. Then I get a case of the grumpies. Nobody likes wet book pages.

Creepy photo you shared there, Propector. No relative of mine. Guys without body hair just not right

Hitting the beach!

Wishin' you were here.

Older, more portly men don’t seem at all hesitant to sport speedo-syle swimsuits, props to their body confidence; nonetheless, many speedo-clad men spotted along the beach are of incredible athletic build. Regardless, every man seen in a speedo has one thing going for sure — a dark, deep, bronzy suntan, proof of his committed relationship with the sun.

We go alot, definitely on the weekends, and some times in the evening. I take a day off from work once a week and go swimming. It is amazing how wearing a Speedo can get you alot of space to swim and sun.

Maybe you can go jump in the Kaw when it goes back down in august? Or better yet...wait until a friend of a friend sneaks you into a certain secret location. Then you could have delicous free state beer and fall into a secret otherwise unnamed location.

I won the "Who Shot J.R.?" pool about 30 years ago. I had my bath on June 12 at Potters Pond. I got arrested, plus I still stink.

Will the Hollis Annual Jump be on YouTube later?

Did I hear tell no compound this weekend? I have to find sanctuary someplace.

prospector 2 years, 10 months ago

Never, but I have been told to go jump in a lake before. Has Hollis had his annual bath in Potters Lake yet?

I did go to the pool once a year. At the end of March. I had to donate twenty dollars to be in the pool. Seems that the guy that owns the pool always got a cut of the pot. I think the pool may have been tainted.

Most candirus are very small and nearly invisible in the water. When they parasitize humans, it is usually only when they are urinating in the water. The candiru tastes the urine stream and follows it back to the human. It then swims up and lodges itself somewhere in the urinary tract with its spines. Blood is drawn, and the candiru gorges itself on both the blood and body tissue, its body sometimes expanding due to the amount of blood. This is all said to be very painful for the person who has this happen to him or her.They are almost impossible to remove due to the spines. They are a species of catfish.

Nothing was mentioned in the article this was gleaned from about their survivability in chlorinated water. It did say they prefer muddy water conditions with low sunlight penetration.

Funny, none of the people asked have a Lawrence address. Don't remember my kids going more than a few times all the while they were growing up here.

I call it baiting. And look who took it.

Sometimes it's hard to tell whether a person has missed their dose of a Ritalin-type drug or if they've taken too much. In any case, something just isn't right.

Not since '76. There's just something about seeing somebody's feces floating past me that I haven't been able to lose the mental image of . . .
