Welcome to the off day open thread.

Feel free to discuss whatever you want as long as you are respectful to your fellow IIATMS readers and authors.



The guy in the picture above has inflammation in his surgically repaired right wrist and is day-to-day according to his surgeon which is good news compared to the possibility of him missing significant time so yay!
