Please don't allow others to bring you down.

I'm sorry if times are rough for you. You're scaring me, Chev, please post again to let us know you're allright.

Anyway, we'll always be here. Some of us will reply in a stupid way, some of us don't say anything, maybe someone will even make you giggle.

For reasons unknown, this place always makes me feel better when I'm down... And I've turned to you guys with serious stuff before. Missy once spent hours and hours talking with me on IM after a really bad breakup.

Any of us would do the same for you, Chev.

Oh No!... Someone else has also very much depressions...
I have always thought, I would be that person with so many depressions here...
The only thing I miss this year are my own tears, and I don't know, why I don't have them now, although sometimes I can feel them very good in myself. In other times my tears came immediately...
Please let us know, You are allright...

I dropped him a note, but I don't know whether or not he will email me back. A cursory examination of the situation leads me to believe that the ElChevelle is still with us or he was 3 days ago when he commented on a Youtube video.

Chevelle has had trouble. Looks like the last time I emailed him was back in 2008. He was kinda troubled then. So lets just think good thoughts and hope his road gets a little better.

I think everybody has trouble painting a smiley face on it some days.

I had my fitee in July. It's not like anything is less fucked up, but maybe I'm getting used to it. I did get the traditional gift. I don't know how it got to be a tradition for 50 with some biker buddies of mine, but it is:



A trenching tool... just in case it gets too deep. Also, we would not like any of us to pass unburied...

50? Hell... we made it this far.... If I'd have known I was gonna last this long, I would have treated myself better.

50 down.. 20 or 30 to go. I could coast that far

I got the senior discount on coffee this morning. Ok... I'm not gonna think about that much. 30 year old women talk to me like I'm their dad. Oh well.. WTF.

I used to say WTF and get upset about things. Now I just say WTF. I tell the kids I'm old and I'm trying to get into heaven now... so DON'T PISS ME OFF!

Ah serenity of senility. Hell... when I was 18 I knew everything. I get dumber every year.

You're going to be 50?? Really? I didn't think anybody here was close to that age. I figured you were like 40 at most.

The 21st I imagine everybody will get drunk. I'll be at Walmart keeping rednecks away from sporting goods. Lol

There is no sig.

Glad your still around.



The World’s Toughest Survivors


Was traffic unbearable this morning? Boss not appreciative of your work? Did that damn barista put too much foam on your latte? Cool, maybe some of these folks will sympathize with the hard day you’ve had.
Like the Chilean miners who spent 69 days underground after the mine they were working in collapsed, or the guy with the broken leg who crawled five miles back to camp after he was left for dead.
How tough are you?




Ernest Shackleton
When the going got tough: In 1914, Shackleton’s crew intended to attempt the first Trans-Antarctic Expedition, a crossing of Antarctica over the south pole. Then their ship, the Endurance, was trapped in pack ice in the Weddell Sea, stranding 28 men.

The tough: Hung out for nine months, but then the ice crushed their ship, so they took lifeboats and camped on the ice for six months eating seal meat and eventually the expedition dogs, until an ice floe suddenly split and they were forced to take the lifeboats to nearby Elephant Island, in freezing water and -20 F temps. From there, Shackleton and five men took four weeks’ worth of supplies and launched a 22.5-foot lifeboat for an 800-mile trip to South Georgia Island, where they hoped to get help at a whaling village. After 16 days of navigating based on dead reckoning, the men landed on South Georgia, but on the wrong (unpopulated) side. Shackleton and two other men crossed the then-unmapped, unexplored island in 36 hours. After several attempts over the course of three months, Shackleton eventually returned to Elephant Island to rescue the rest of his crew. All crew members survived. The first Antarctic crossing would not happen for another 40 years.



Aron Ralston
When the going got tough: In 2003, Ralston was descending Blue John Canyon, a technical slot canyon in remote southern Utah, when a chockstone shifted, smashing his right arm and trapping him.

The tough: Stood in place with his arm stuck behind the boulder for 127 straight hours, running out of food and water and eventually drinking his own urine. Cut his own arm off with a dull, cheap knockoff multitool, rappelled with one arm, and hiked many miles out of the canyon.




Joe Simpson
When the going got tough: In 1985, Simpson and Simon Yates climbed the then-unclimbed west face of Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes and, on the descent with more than 3,000 feet to get to safety, Simpson slipped and broke his leg. Yates tied their ropes together and began to lower Simpson, which went well until he unknowingly lowered Simpson off a cliff. Hanging free from the face, Simpson tried to communicate with Yates, who couldn’t hear him in a worsening storm. Pinned in his stance and slipping, Yates eventually cut the rope between the two, dropping Simpson 150 feet into a crevasse below. Thinking his friend was dead, Yates dug a snow cave for the night, and descended and returned to camp the next day. Simpson, however, was not dead.

The tough:




Joe Simpson, master climber explains unable to climb out of the crevasse, how with a broken leg, no water or food and stuck in a crevasse with little hope, his atheistic values gave him purpose and drive to save his own life.
Simpson rappelled deeper into the glacier, where he was able to escape through a small ice roof. Then he spent three days crawling and butt-sliding the five miles back to camp without food and water, at times hallucinating.




Beck Weathers
When the going got tough: Weathers attempted to summit Mount Everest in 1996, part of the fateful disaster that year. He was unable to see and stopped at the South Col, waiting for guide Rob Hall to return and take him back down the mountain. But Hall was stranded higher on the mountain and never returned.

The tough: Open-bivied high on the mountain in a blizzard. His exposed hands and feet were severely frostbitten, but he was able to make his way back to Camp IV, where Anatoli Boukreev found him and alerted fellow climbers to put Weathers in a tent. Seeing the condition Weathers was in, the climbers thought he would certainly die and tried to make him comfortable in his last hours. He spent the night in the tent, unable to feed himself, drink water, or rearrange the sleeping bags he had been given to keep warm. The next day, he was found still alive, and was helped to walk to Camp II. After one of the highest-altitude helicopter rescues ever, Weathers had his right hand, all the fingers on his left hand, parts of both feet, and his nose amputated.





“Los 33” Chilean Miners
When the going got tough: In 2010, a copper and gold mine near Copiapo, Chile, caved in, trapping 33 miners 2,300 feet underground.

The tough: Waited. They made their emergency rations, intended to last two to three days, last two weeks. Seventeen days after the collapse, a drilling team started to bore holes to attempt a rescue, and when their drill bit came back up from one of the holes, they found a note attached to it, reading “”Estamos bien en el refugio, los 33″ (“We are well in the shelter, the 33″). The men organized and decided on a democratic, one-man/one-vote system, and worked together to keep morale up. After 68 days underground, rescue efforts paid off and a capsule was sent down to retrieve the first of the miners. Over the next 24 hours, all of the men were returned to the surface. All survived without long-term health effects.





The Three Mexican Fishermen
When the going got tough: In October 2005, Lucio Rendón, Salvador Ordóñez, and Jesús Vidaña and two other men set out from San Blas, a small Mexican fishing village near Puerto Vallarta, in a 28-foot shark fishing boat without a radio. They ran out of fuel and drifted out to sea. For nine months.

The tough: Drank rainwater, caught fish with engine cables, ate raw seagulls, played air guitar, sang ballads, and tossed overboard the bodies of the two other crewmembers, who they say refused to eat raw fish and starved to death. In August 2006, a Taiwanese fishing boat saw the boat on its radar and went to investigate, then pulled the men onboard.





Nando Parrado and Roberto Canessa
When the going got tough: In October 1972, Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 crashed into the Andes, killing more than one-fourth of its passengers. Twenty-nine people survived, then eight of those were swept away in an avalanche. Survivors were left with little food and no source of heat, at an altitude of 11,800 feet. WIth much trepidation, the eventually resorted to eating the flesh of some of the dead. They survived two months.

The tough: Trekked for 10 days through the Andes with little “food” and a homemade sleeping bag to find help and initiate a rescue for the remaining survivors.





Sophie the Cattle Dog
When the going got tough: Jan and Dave Griffith were in their family yacht off the coast of Queensland, Australia, when their boat was caught in a storm. Sophie Tucker, their cattle dog, fell overboard. The Griffiths turned the boat around and backtracked in the rough waters, and couldn’t find any sign of Sophie.

The tough: Swam five nautical miles through shark-infested waters to St. Bees Island, a tiny remote volcanic island ringed by reefs. Sophie, a house dog, roamed the island for four months, apparently living off baby goats until rangers saw and caught her, reuniting her with the Griffiths a few days later.






Juliane Koepcke
When the going got tough: LANSA Flight 508 left Lima on Christmas Eve, 1971, flying into a storm over the Peruvian Amazon. A lightning bolt hit one of the plane’s fuel tanks, ripping its right wing off. As the plane started to go down, 17-year-old Juliane Koepcke’s mother turned to her and said, “This is it!” Koepcke’s row of seats ripped out of the disintegrating plane at about 10,000 feet.

The tough: Regained consciousness in midair, falling headfirst toward the canopy of trees. Koepcke woke up on the floor of the rainforest with only a concussion, a broken collarbone, a gash on her leg, and a small cut on her arm. But she had lost her glasses and one sandal, and was wearing only a thin dress with a broken zipper. She started to walk, looking for a creek and following it downstream, eventually finding wreckage from the plane and some of the crash victims. All of the other 91 passengers died. After 10 days of walking through the forest, she found a small shelter with a boat, and waited there, cleaning her maggot-infested wounds with gasoline. After a few hours, lumber workers found her at the shelter and took her seven hours by canoe to a lumber station, where she was airlifted out.




Tami Oldham Ashcraft
When the going got tough: Tami Oldham Ashcraft and her boyfriend were 19 days into a 30-day crossing of the South Pacific in 1983, delivering a sailboat from Tahiti to San Diego, when they ran into a Category 4 hurricane. The boat rolled and flipped end over end. The main mast snapped, Ashcraft was knocked unconscious below deck, and when she regained consciousness, her boyfriend was gone, his safety line severed. The boat’s electronic equipment didn’t work and the boat was partially flooded.

The tough: Wanted to die. Weak from blood loss, Ashcraft sat for two days, then got out a sextant, figured out her bearings, rigged a makeshift sail, and tried to find currents to take her to Hawaii. Forty-two days of solo sailing and drifting later, she pulled into Hilo Harbor.






Julian Ritter, Laurie Kokx, and Winfried Heiringhoff
When the going got tough: Painter Julian Ritter launched his 45-foot yawl from Santa Barbara on February 2, 1968, fulfilling a lifelong dream of traveling by sea and drawing inspiration for his paintings. He picked up various guest crew members during his travels, and when he left the South Pacific island of Bora Bora on June 17, 1970, the crew was Ritter, Laurie Kokx, and Winfried Heiringhoff. They planned to reach Hawaii in 30 days. Then things started going less than smoothly: The motor, starter coil, oil pump, generator, battery, and radio all broke down or died. The boom fell and barely missed Ritter. The stitching on the sails started to loosen. The boat started to leak and take on water.

The tough: Pumped 75 to 250 gallons of water out of the boat every day. Ran out of food after 40 days adrift. They scraped algae from the hull and made soup from it, and caught a few jumping fish and squid to eat. After 87 days adrift, a U.S. Naval ship spotted the boat and rescued Ritter, Kokx and Heiringhoff, who they described as “living skeletons only four days away from death.”





Sunny" is the name of a song written by Bobby Hebb. It is one of the most covered popular songs, with hundreds of versions released. BMI rates "Sunny" number 25 in its "Top 100 songs of the century."


Hebb wrote the song after November 22, 1963, the day U.S. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated and Hebb's older brother Harold was stabbed to death outside a Nashville nightclub. Hebb was devastated by both events inspired the tune. According to Hebb, he wrote the song as an expression of a preference for a "sunny" disposition over a "lousy" disposition.

The 50th birthday will come next week...
I'm 46 years now, and I don't feel to be very young anymore. My own age itself is not the problem for me, my own depressions are making much more problems, but in my case I know exactly the reasons...
But I have to admit now, I'm afraid of the upcoming 21st December...
I have many fears, and I'm too shy, so I didn't ask yet, if I can be a part of a big project by many people. These are no music-tracks and no videos, these are other creations, creations by many people, which are currently gathered. It would have been an honor for me, but I'm not able to become a part of that big project, I'm not able to try that...
So I should return into "My Own Worlds" now...

Holy giant post webthing. Some really good reading in there though. Thank you very much for posting; I may use these stories while doing things for work.

I'm 34 and so far still pretty good. Couple scars both literally and figuratively, but the list of good is still bigger than the list of bad.

My dad is a month shy of 77. I'm pretty strong and I'll bet he'd still be able to beat me at arm wrestling. Spending 5-10 hours a day, around 6 days a week doing heavy lifting and manual labor doesn't seem to get the better of him. For some reason he works quite a lot harder and is busier in his "retirement" than he ever did during his career. Either he's that bulletproof or he's that good at hiding the aches and pains, or maybe a little of both. He takes baths instead of showers and walks his dog every dawn and dusk. That probably helps. He's an empty nester, so that means kiddies like me aren't giving him any more stress. My mother gets nervous though. Some of the shit he does probably should be reserved for people under 60, or for a group of guys and not just him, but that's a battle that many family members including myself continually lose.

If, when I get to his age, I can accomplish what he does before 8 a.m. before my 8 p.m., I'll be impressed. Don't let the number fool you. The human body and mind can be pretty damn powerful, regardless of age.

Don't forget to live before you die.

welcome to the forum Deeder, there are not only youngsters here.

I'm 47 and as you can see there are more of us that are 40 or older.

. Some of the shit he does probably should be reserved for people under 60
The men in my family really don't slow down much either. My uncle used to mountain goat down trails that would give me pause when he was in his late 80's to go fishin. Lung cancer finally got him at 87.

At 50, I'm feeling like it's "use it or lose it". I'm not any weaker than I was at 30. Get sedentary and you'll end up in a wheelchair. If he's in his 70's and still kicking around doing his stuff, I think that's better than the alternatives.

If it wasn't for cancer, we'd probably live to be 150. You can't wrap em in cotton. Most of these guys are dead now, but most of my uncles could still toss bales at 70. If cancer didn't get em.

Mostly everyone goes along very healthy until something kills them. That won't be from chopping wood or hard work.. unless you aren't used to it...

I'm 50 and I'm in better shape than most 30 year olds. He's been in his body a long time. He knows what it will take and what it won't. You learn too.. How to lift stuff without killing yourself. How to fall without breaking yourself..

60 doesn't seem to be slowing down many of the guys I know unless they were a pile of jello at 30...

When I was "scrapping", that is to say when I was selling anything metal I could find in his old collapsed barn, I called him out to help me lift some shit up that I couldn't by myself. Some of it he lifted, carried, and placed in the trailer before I even got there, because I was still in eating lunch when he started. I suppose 60 is still a pretty young age, but when you get to where my dad is, there are legit concerns like shoveling wet snow in cold weather - that has proven to cause heart attacks in even the healthiest of senior citizens. I'm not sure why, but a lot of people told me this is the case - something to do with heavy breathing and physical exertion during cold temps.

Don't forget to live before you die.

I guess people who were born earlier got used to having to work harder because they didn't have the luxuries we got when time progressed.

Being only 28 years old (or young), that would make me a pussy.

This all reminds me of Weird al Yankovic's 'When I Was Your Age' youtube link

Jesus loves you [yes, you] so much, he even died for you so that you will not need to die, but live forever

If I was him, I'd just do my chores and take my chances. If you get to go with your boots on, it's a bonus.
