    It is 20 steps from the ground to my stylish hipster hideaway. My brother and "sister" jokingly said there should be a pool for how long it will take me to ascend the stairs upon my release from hospital.

    Please enter the time in minutes below. Please check the times selected below before adding yours.

    My brother will be the time keeper. I'll not enter the pool as I could rig it to easily.

    Cost is 1 buck cash or $1.35 via PayPal to [email protected].

    Winner gets it all.

    Does this help... it is also in the unedited post above.

    Winner gets it all.

    Let me just put this out there. I am working with the OSU Social Services to pay the bill. If you think that the 20 or maybe 30 bucks this pool will create is a cash grab by me then don't enter. But homme don't play that game here.

    I think we need a baseline pre-bypass time to help make educated guesses.

    I agree Nathan.... Pull out all your tubes.... Come back down to the Short North....

    Make a couple runs up and down the steps at your Hipster abode.... Give us a good baseline....

    On second thought.... Change out of that flimsy hospital gown that doesn't quite hide everything in the backyard....

    You know..... Before you come down....

    I'd rather run Nate on a dynapack tonight, and do a before and after. If there isn't a significant increase in FHP (foot horsepower) after the tune on Tuesday, then someone should be getting their money back...

    I don't know.
    When my pops had his quad by pass he was like a new man.

    My bet will be he will scoot up and down them stairs like no big deal.

    Kinda like after getting
    Your N14 walnut blasted. It just runs better.

    I'm gonna be a damp wet blanket and say your exit instruction will include 'no stair climbing for # days. That being said, when you do go climbing you'll get halfway up, remember something you forgot, go down to get it and forget where you were going in the first place and settle down for a session with Netflix and a hydrocodone.

    I am in. Let's change the stakes. The winner gets their name on the donation to a local children's hospital and the buy in is $20.
    My time is 20 minutes.
    What is the address to mail my 20.

    It's Saul, not Sal.

    He'll update the spreadsheet later when comes by. As my proxy he went to the show at The Rumba last night that was going to attend.
