Awesome for you bro. I'm looking at just under five hours left (I started at 6:00pm on Thursday). I'm most surprised right now at how good I'm feeling.

My cognition seems a bit foggy too, but I'm really not that hungry at all. I've got a sense of, "Yeah, man, some food would be really good right now...", but I'm not feeling nearly as strong a sense of hunger as I did yesterday.

It's as though my body has now shifted into, "low power mode". I have been busy all morning with my family too and I'm wondering if that may have helped.

Last time I fasted like this I did a 2 mile run at hour 65 or so to see what It would feel like. It's 25 degrees out here and I won't be doing it today, although I am going ice skating with my kids.

Consuming something that tastes like food. Food porn. How’s it going now?

Current Preoccupation: Maintaining my health. I’m 26 hours into a 72 hour fast. Had brain cancer in 2102. Dealt with it then, but had a “funny” MRI this last week. Could be bad news.

My excellent brother mk has recently come up with a regimen that we will hopefully ward off the bad stuff long term.

The fasting is the opening of a can of whoop-ass on any remaining cells gone wrong.

I also teach the 8th grade in a public school. It’s awesome and never without challenges or rewarding moments.

First time using imgur. Hope this works.

My nine year old daughter has five friends over for her birthday. They just finished ice skating and I've been the gofer for them.

Sucked at first, but once I got moving I forgot the hunger and warmed up. Just sitting by the fire now.

How about some thumb carnage photos?

This is my third 72 hour fast. If you’re dizzy, it could be your electrolyte levels. The second time I fasted, I found that 6-8 ounces of zero calorie Gatorade helped me perk up when I started feeling light-headed.

Just started. 6pm Thursday night. 18 minutes in and feeling fine.

I'm curious to see what percentage of U.S. currency has been stolen, counterfeited, or lost in a similar time period. How similar are the amounts?

Cool for you man. How's the battery life? I've got a 6s that has a slowly diminishing battery life. It needs to hit the charger nightly.

Were you an Apple user before the Nokia? I'll look into the Nokia 6, but I'm figuring that Apple will make it a pain in the ass to switch to Android(photos, music and stuff). Would it be worth it to switch?

This just in, my daughter has the flu. It began with a fever one day after a family overnight stay at a fecal spray/urine slide park. What a shock this has not been.

We gambled and lost.

So long waterparks...
