Ok, exaggeration to the extreme, but this is still pretty impressive. Wonder who this could be...

An Adrian College interior design student is among this year’s International Design Award winners.
Joel Mbala-Nkanga is a senior at Adrian College.
The project Joel Mbala-Nkanga submitted for the competition was a retail shoe store called HEEL. According to a news release from Adrian College, his idea was to create a sales setting that allowed customers to make transactions via their smartphones, or to have the option to interact with a salesperson. In his design, interactive touchscreens and rounded TVs let costumers view products, locations and costs.

I sent this email to Michael Lombardi's email address from the National Football Post. Hope he still reads that one.
Mr. Lombardi,I understand you are having some trouble finding your organization's new head coach. Well, do I have some good news for you! I am offering to fill the position for only five times the pay of the average NFL coach!! And that's not all: I've already assembled a staff of some great prospective coaches! Combined, the coaches on my staff have a total of zero games of head coaching experience. And these guys are the best of the best. Like, if you assembled a staff with Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, Bill Belichick, and Bill Walsh, that staff would only be a little better than this one. Without further ado, here is your championship staff!Head Coach: Me. Duh. I have at least 60 years left to live and I can be your coach for all of them!Offensive Coordinator: This guy named Joe. Heavily influenced by the high flying offense used by your most recent head coach in Carolina.Defensive Coordinator: Some Viking Fan. The youngest member of the staff by a few years, this guy has the least experience of the bunch. Absolute must hire.ST Coordinator: This guy named Russell. Russell is a pothead that works at McDonald's and might be underqualified for his current employment. A spot on my staff is perfect for him,QB Coach: A guy known only as "FartWaffles". He eats waffles and he farts. Can probably also be a player/coach at the QB position.RB Coach: My good friend JD. JD has a classic running back's physique, and can mold the backs on the roster into tip-top shape to perform their best.WR Coach: This guy I kinda don't like named Chaz. Chaz is only on the staff so that people don't think I'm a racist. You can be sure that if we aren't good, Chaz is going to quit on the team, but we won't be not good, so it won't matter.TE Coach: Greg. His area of expertise is actually the secondary but he was overqualified for that position. However, he is perfectly qualified to pretend to coach one of the league's top tight ends.OL Coach: BWareDware. He'll actually coach for at least six other teams throughout the season; hope that's okay.DL Coach: Vin. Vinny is a natural born leader who can't possibly make our pass rushers more inconsistent.LB Coach: Sean Brock. Sean is like the Michael Irvin of LB coaches, and by that I mean he snorts copious amounts of cocaine. Has good history with LB's and is probably overqualified.DB Coach: Joel. Joel has never coached but played in college. His background is with the shutdown secondary of the Detroit Lions, so he'll fit in with us.Strength/Conditioning Coach: Stevie V. Stevie is a high school math teacher with no athletic or fitness knowledge. Perfect fit for my staff.Spread Game Analyst/Special Projects Coach: Brady. Brady might be the most qualified of my staff members for his position.So here is your staff, Mr. Lombardi. I guarantee you AT LEAST five Super Bowls this season, which should be enough to save my job. Please reply back. Toodaloo.- Coach Tommy.

So for those of you who don't know, the last 7 days or so, I was in Haiti on a missions trip to build rain catchers for homes in the village of Seguin. ZoS and Waffles suggested I make a thread about it, so here you go. Lol. Wasn't really something I was going to do because of work, but the baby mama persuaded me to come with her and her church. Raincatchers are pretty much just rain collecting systems (gutters) that we designed with natural filters to capture rain, and give them water.
Haiti, for those of you who don't know is the poorest country in the western hemisphere, and in most villages women usually have to walk miles every other day to grab clean water, and bring it back to there house.
Anyway I got some pics of the adventure for y'all, story mode.
Started off in the Detroit plane heading off to Miami, I had her take the window seat cause I got massive fear of heights:
Then we went from Miami:
To Port Au Prince (biggest city in Haiti):
Every street looked like this:
Driving laws?? Not existent, I recorded the LEAST busy street we drove on, and even this had me scared for my life. Lol:
We went to a fancy hotel, and then the following day drove up a mountain for 6 hours. In this truck where we had to stand up and hold on for dear life because of bumps and holes on the roads up. No photos were taken of this unfortunately because my phone is huge and I didn't wanna drop it.
This was the scene we had to travel every day:
These were the houses we were working on. She did a lot of standing around while I did a ton of the work. >_>
The kids? They loved me. It was ridiculous, they often even left their homes and wanted to come work with me. They were the best part of this trip.
And what do they love to do? Sledding... How? Well...
The scenes from our clinic? Beautiful:
We played a TON of soccer. Soccer is truly KING everywhere but USA.
The kids were often fed our leftovers, every night when we fed them I had nothing but goosebumps:
And finally, this was my favorite part of the trip. I gave this baby girl my breakfast snack before finally leaving. Watching her eat it legit bought a tear to my eye. This was toward when she was done eating.
Anyway, it was a truly humbling and exciting experience. The village we were at had no toilets, so kids, naturally peed and pooped anywhere they could, along with the sheep, cows, donkeys, horses that lived there so I'm pretty sure I stepped on a lot of fecal matter.
We also didn't take showers while we were in the village to preserve water. I took 2 showers while in Haiti, first and last day. Ha.

Several of you know based on what I posted in the shoutbox the other day that my sister had a mass in her lung found by the doctors.
She finally got word back today from the specialist that it is entirely benign and is significantly smaller than originally thought. Nothing wrong with her at all.
He thinks there was a glitch with the original machine, because while there is a something out of place there, it is not nearly as big as it was originally shown to be. It is entirely non-cancerous.
Anywho, she is completely fine. I am, needless to say, rather relieved.

I wanted to use my situation as an opportunity to educate this forum as well as whoever I can on skin cancer and particularly melanoma (the most aggressive and dangerous of the 3 types of skin cancer), the type that I unfortunately have.
I say educate because up until 2 weeks ago, I still thought skin cancer was just something that is removed and you go on living your life normally, they believe skin cancer rarely kills people (i'd say most people don't even realize that it can kill anyone, it just scars tissue on your body).
I am not sure how skin cancer got this reputation compared to other types of cancer. The fact is that skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the US, 3.5 million people are diagnosed annually. One in five Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime. The two types of skin cancer aside from melanoma are called basal cell and squamous cell, and account for 98% of all skin cancer diagnoses.
Malignant melanoma accounts for less than 2% of skin cancer cases but overwhelmingly makes up most deaths. One person dies of melanoma every hour. Over 76,000 new cases of melanoma are expected to be diagnosed this year, and nearly 10,000 deaths are estimated.
Tomorrow I have a three hour surgery where the surgeons will remove a 4 inch long and about 2 inch wide piece of tissue where the original tumor is removed, this procedure is called a wide excision melanoma and is done to ensure that all cancerous cells near the tumor are completely removed.
Before this, the surgeon will complete what is called a sentinel node biopsy where he will inject a radioactive blue dye into the tissue near the tumor. This dye will then be picked up by the lymphatic system and brought to the nearest lymph node. A small wand like device that detects radiation will then be passed over the site to locate the specific lymph node. The node will most likely be in my groin, or axillary area (underneath the armpit). Once it is located, the surgeon will then remove the node and send it out to a pathologist to be analyzed for cancer.
This procedure is done to diagnose the stage of the cancer (levels 1-4) right now I have level 1B cancer with the knowledge they have. It will tell them if the cancer has spread, if it has, it bumps me up to level 3B and additionally surgery and treatment is required.
I find out the results Wednesday night, the doctors are confident that it will come back negative so I am hopeful for that. Wish me luck and hope, pray for the best.
If you want to see video of the surgery, you can look up sentinel node biopsy and wide excision melanoma on youtube (caution its graphic).
P.S.A wear your sunscreen, and if you don't at least put it all over your kids if you have them.
