The proliferation of stickies is a big problem. It must stop!

Are you implying to stickies which get replies?

I don't understand the problem. Stickies are the most invisible part of the forum. Nobody ever reads a sticky. Best place to hide state secrets in.

... and you are trying to stop it by posting another sticky? I'm confused.

Bruno appeared to have spotted the inconsistency. I myself answered with another self defeating post. Please consider the joke appreciated.

What I'm still trying to puzzle out: is the inconsistent spelling of the long and difficult p-word in the thread's title and the OP accidential?

I knew you'd get it :-)

Yes, I have http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raynaud's_disease and it is "cold", (meaning, nice temperature for everyone else, but low enough to make my hands hard to use)

Confusion is rampant today ;)

I made a sticky (this thread). I have since unstickied it.

As for how that is related, I mangled the word "proliferation" in my post because of my trouble typing.

Starting to make sense. It would've been easier to notice if it was left stickied, becoming ironic.

See what you started LaRoza? She/He/It (whatever) made the thread stickied to begin with, and she mispelled proliferation.

It was a self-referential thread. A bit like "Ceci n'est pas une pipe". The affair of the mispelt word was a bycatch.

And this is not a post, BTW.

I never read sticky threads, the only one I have ever bothered with is the recent OMGPP one and I only noticed that because it was referenced in a real thread.

She has Raynaud's Disease which makes it hard for her to type, as a result she mispelt profileration.

I pulled her leg about writing a word in the OP differently from how she wrote it in the title. Which she explained by her difficulty typing due to subpar blood supply to the digits, if I am making myself clear.

I had to wear mittens once.

Isn't LaRoza a moderator? Also why? How is this a troll thread?

No chance of improvement I think. I have been like this since I was a kid.

Wearing mittens and gloves really doesn't help, as my hands can't keep the goves or mittens warm (so they are only good while they are warm, less than 10 minutes usually).

It isn't a big problem. Mostly an annoyance, albeit, painful at times.

Have you tried battery powered or chemical based heat? I don't remember the name of the product, but in the commercial there's a black man wearing this thing around his back to releive back pain, and he starts dancing. Shaquille O'Neal is in another commercial for the same product.

Oh, I wouldn't call it that. I absolutely love cold weather, besides this factor. I get it in my toes and fingers pretty bad. It seems that some of my relatives have it also. It doesn't matter how many gloves or socks I wear, my fingers and toes turn white. (It even happens at times at 40F...)

Ah, that isn't so bad. I like cold weather also, but I typically only get it in my hands (at least, I don't notice it elsewhere, because I don't require much dexterity in my feet).

Only turn white? Mine turn white, then blue (really), then bright red (which hurts). It happens around when it is warmer than. It is 67 now, and it is making it hard to type.

Genuine Raynaud's disease question (Wikipedia didn't help);
Does it actually make you feel cold (presumably from the lack of circulating warm blood due to vasoconstriction), or does that mean you still feel fine, yet simply appear as though look cold (like white fingers from lack of oxygen due to lesser circulation)?

It feels cold.

Humans are usually 97-99 degrees. Anything lower requires the body to keep itself warm. Most humans don't find 70 degrees cold, but in reality, it is quite cold. An active person wearing clothes won't notice though.

In Raynaud's, the same biological responses that normal people have are enhanced. So instead of slowing blood flow, it stops it. So, at 60-70 degrees, my hands are cold to touch. Below 65 makes them quite sluggish (what a normal person might feel if it were freezing out I think, based on how I see people respond to coldness).

Which of course must be in degrees Fahrenheit, as otherwise, well, most humans would be dead, (36.8 C). I'd never heard of it before, so I think it could be interesting to look into (no mention of where it starts in Wikipedia, Biology tells me the Hypothalamus might be a good starting point for googling, so I'll spend some type brushing up and searching).

Dr Small
September 20th, 2008, 10:59 PM

No. They become a stinging cold. I have never let them get past white, so I wouldn't know if they turn blue :O It was really bad when I was out hiking in the snow, and my feet feel like numb knots (while stinging) and my fingers can barely hang on to the stick I am carrying.

I then go into the Barn with the woodstove blowing some nice 80-100F heat out, and slowly bring them back to red. Meanwhile, they sting very horrid.

Well, yeah. I don't know where or why it happens.

I was referring to colour. I get purple and blue quite often. In fact, that is how it was found. I was having a doctor checkup when I was 15-16 and the MA noticed it (note, I was inside).
