Ok so how many people are like me and my wife who were told that Wisdom teeth must be removed because they would cause horrible jaw and bite problems? Hen somehow, neither of us got them yanked when we were kids. So we still have all the teeth we were designed to have, and have absolutely no dental problems.

I think she has had a few fillings and braces when she was younger. I had nothing done to mine.

I think dentists doing the "must remove your wisdom teeth" is going to turn out 20 years from now the same way "you must have your tonsils removed", not only not needed, but may possibly do more harm than good.

I was told that, and had it done, so I don't know whether it was true or not.

I had two pulled at one time (top & bottom, one side) and went to a dance that night. THen later the other two yanked, and didn't go out (no dance), but remember having to vacuum the house. Some of us are lucky in the wisdom teeth removal business. Hope yours goes well, LisaM. Sorry, KE, to hear about the teeth and your grandmother.

Redskull - while I believe that they're removed more often than they probably need to be, I've seen the evidence on mine - they're going to hit bone if they grow in all the way.

Sorry to hear about your grandmother, KE. But it's amazing what they can do, now, for cardiac problems.

I had six wisdom teeth removed when I was about 21. They put me out and my best friend drove me home and put me to bed. Over all it was not bad situation.

I was also under general when they fused my C6-C7 vertabrea last year. I blew a disk sneezing and impinged on the main nerve bundle in the right arm. Felt like it was on fire until the percocets and the pheninyl kicked in. Had no reaction to the general and was eating up a strom several hours later.

I do not fear getting knocked out for surgery. It was actually quite peaceful.

Of course when I was on the pain meds my wife and kids said I was the most mellow they had ever seen me. [Smile]

I was given Valium to keep my eyes closed after getting laser eye surgery. Apparently I was really out of it but I just felt nice and relaxed. It wore off after a nap and I was really irritated because I couldn't keep my eyes closed anymore.

Jav,

Use me being gone, against me. Not defending my position, or being outraged at liberal atrocities, government leaks (by liberals), etc. No, I don't think anyone here would use my grandma's illness again me.

In fact, thank you all for your kind words. She's getting better, slowly. I've been there every night. One of the few times being a nightowl comes in handy.

OSC's "Homework" article is hilarious. And right on the money. Tuesday before last, after coming home from work, Little John and I spent four hours in Home Depot building a catapolt to throw an egg over a three foot wall.

I then spent the rest of the night until like 4 in the morning finishing and painting it.

The teacher did say it was the most original and well designed. I was very proud. Of MY work! [Wink]

John helped, but he also had a History project and social studies homework. He is in advanced classes and routinely has two or three hours of homework a night.

He's better educated than I was, but I had a lot more fun when I was his age. [Smile]

Little John when asked sadi: "I learned that PVC pipe can be connected like Legos."

Time well spent! Actually we did have a really good time being together. But I immediately wondered about the other kids. Kids with single parents, especially single mom's, and poor people.

Did their kids get punished because they didn't have the time or money to spend at Home Depot? [Frown]

Of course few of them can afford to send there kids to the school district Stacy and I have struggled 15 years to stay in.

Sweet, a catapolt? In my woodworking class in tenth grade I made a trebuchet that was pretty rocking. I could throw little blocks of wood like 15 feet. It was tits.

Glad to here your grandma's getting better

Thanks Tommy.

Drake, I had to drive him cause they wouldn't let him on the bus with it in the box. (Concealed weapon I guess. [Wink] ) (And Stacy has been intentionally keeping him from getting his liscence.)

Welcome back Paladine. [Smile]

We actually had one group of people build a potato gun for our AP Phyisics class (2000-2001). My project was a solenoid gun.

*** FLOP *** [8h 6h 8d]
Neutrality checks
oober (Observer): 5 hrs
noataima checks
*** TURN *** [8h 6h 8d] [7s]
Neutrality checks
noataima bets $100
Neutrality raises to $500
noataima raises to $900
Neutrality raises to $2,000
noataima raises to $5,550, and is all in
Neutrality calls $3,550
noataima shows [Qd 8s]
Neutrality shows [5s 9c]
*** RIVER *** [8h 6h 8d 7s] [7d]
noataima shows a full house, Eights full of Sevens
Neutrality shows a straight, Nine high
noataima wins the pot ($11,347) with a full house, Eights full of Sevens

No luck.

I played well and still lost $140. Had to get home to take care of my grandma so didn't have time to win it back or lose more. First time I've lost. I'm thinking of playing No Limit instead. At least then you can get the crazies off the draws.

For example, my last hand.

I had pocket Aces the flop was trash 3, 8, 9, with two Clubs. I knew the guy was on a draw, and I bet the Limit. Then when a Diamond came on Turn and a 7 of Hearts on the River I bet the limit cause I knew he'd missed his draw. But the River made him two pair. He was holding a 7 and 3 of clubs. He even apologized. Didn't help.

Pal, runner runner after Neutrality made the Straight on the Turn is brutal. How noataima made the call on the Turn is beyond me though. He wasn't even pot committed at that point. Did he think Neutrality was bluffing or was he just clueless? (I would have been scared of 9,10, Not to mention pocket 6's.)

Assault with a deadly weapon? Let's see; a knife can't be longer than 6 inches, so I'm okay. [Crying]

Personally, I think you should get a citizen award. That's how I want to go. [Wink]

However, unless I remarry there's slim chance of that. [Frown]

Of course Stacy could slip into a coma mid coitus and I'd never know the difference. [Razz]

Assault with a deadly weapon. Don't be modest, KE; we all know you're hung.

On a blog, somebody posted a link to a picture of "orphaned baby kangaroos being kept comfortable in surrogate-pouch bags." Knowing what the inside of a kanagroo's pouch is really like, I thought the picture would be disgusting, but apparently the bags are just ordinary cloth bags, so it's actually cute.

No Paladine. I mean that noataima should have been worried about you having the 9,10 (cards people hold onto, especially suited) for the straight. That being the case I don't see how he made the call on the Turn.

Cause even with Trip 8's, with a straight being on the board his only chance was to catch the case 8, a Queen, or pair the board on the River. He didn't have the Pot Odds to call your $2,000 raise much less go All-In, and he must have known at that point he was beat? He he must have known you had the Straight?

Talk about Sucking-Out. That's a bad beat. Even worse than mine. At least the guy I was against was drawing to a Flush and in Limit he had the Pot Odds. He got lucky, but at least he had a reason for being there. Not like the guy you were playing who basically played stupid and got really really lucky.

Are there a lot of people that play silly like that in No Limit? I was hoping that No Limit would make more sense and that you could get people off drawing hands, etc?

If I do play No Limit how much do I need to take as a bank roll? $500 okay? I'm thinking I'll enter some tourneys first. $100 entry $110 rebuy. $15,000 garunteed. Money to the top 10 finishers, max of 50 players. What do you think.

I have to get to work, but generally you want approximately 30 maximum buyins (generally 100-200 big blinds) for whatever game you're going to play, assuming you have a comfortable edge there. So for a 1/2 game with a maximum buyin of $200, you should want a minimum of $6000 in your roll.

We pulled the ventilator tube out of my Grandma this morning, and started upping her morphine. (I stayed the night again with her last night.) She died at 4:25pm.

Probably going to lose my job because of all the time I spent with her over the last few weeks. My boss said something like "we all have personal baggage but we can't let it interfere with work." **** him. I was looking for a job when I found this one.

I'm sort-of back. I'm still working a zillion hours lawyering, and am trying to get started as a piano tuner-recycler plus furniture re-doer. The piano business has been especially slow to start up, as I'm working a zillion hours lawyering. But my hours are starting to get a little more under control. Usually I have Sundays to do my new thing. I just refinished the woodwork on a dining table plus eight chairs. Next up is the seats of the chairs. The set is going to be awesome. I'm not sure it's as profitable as lawyering, doing furniture work. But it's a hell of a lot more worthwhile.
