  1. It is indeed. So far I like it. I'm not very good at identifying the flavours yet, but the overall judgement is good. Wife also got me an 18 y.o. Highland Park. Never had it, will try tomorrow.
  2. Sorry about the huge image. I'm on my iPad and feeling too lazy to fix it.
  3. Got me some scotch for Christmas and enjoying it in my SW planetary glasses. Looking for Scotch in Alderaan places
  4. I haven't had too many but I do like the Balvenie, esp the 12 year double barrel.
  5. R15, why do you think it is okay to just stop taking your antidepressants? Guess what, they don't work if you don't take them every single day!
  6. I'm just not a big fan of talking to my devices/computers. Dictation is sometimes ok but I'd rather not look like an idiot.
  7. Zoom, is your partial all acrylic with some wire clasps?
  8. How did you conclude that? What I'm saying is that a man and a woman have complementary parts that, when working properly, can produce offspring. If one or the other or both is sterile through some disorder or age, that doesn't change the complementarity of the parts.
  9. Nope, doesn't work like that. There's a difference between having the proper parts that just don't work properly for whatever reason and not having the right parts. Lynk, to what are you referring?
  10. There's a key word there, "survival." Survival means procreation. Procreation means a man and a woman. It used to be that the vast majority of children were born to a two parent household, a man and woman married to each other. With the sexual revolution and increase of promiscuity, contraception use and absentee fathers, that's no longer the norm. Doesn't mean it is right. There is no survival aspect to a same sex union.
  11. All I can say about the teaser is that it certainly looks better than the whole of the prequels combined. After almost 2 years, I'm quitting my job at Aspen Dental and going back to my previous job at the community clinic. I'm burned out and tired of the corporate BS that ultimately pervades any large company. Unfortunately I agreed to 90 days notice when I got the job so I've got over 2 months left unless there is a new dentist hired sooner. Can't wait to go back. Fewer hours, fewer patients, 4 days a week, more vacation time, more pay.
  12. All I wanna say, Ed, is that if I were in your position, I would be treating every single item as a collector's piece and either keep it or sell it for top dollar. I wish my own father had a collection like yours does.
  13. R15, you're 30 years old, it is time to act like a man goddammit. If you have no interest in this girl and you're just using her for sex, that makes you a ****ing douchebag and an a-hole. Show her some respect as a human being and tell her the truth or at least dump her like the ******* you are.
  14. Since 2008 I have had three kids, gotten my DDS, moved to Vermont, had two jobs as a dentist.
  15. It's been six years, zoomie. You gonna stick around or just doing a strafing run?
  16. The guy at the end of the commercial makes me think of Ed for some reason. http://youtu.be/jHaeb0O5Oug
  17. Merry Syphilis and a Happy Gonorrhea! So, I have joined the club of a-holes who have had to fire people right before Christmas. Technically I don't have the authority to fire anyone, but right now I'm the "acting" managing clinical director dentist in my office. Our regular office manager has been out sick all month, so I and the acting office manager both had to fire our hygienist who has been with the company for years over something that still makes me wonder how bad it was. I try to take solace in the fact that it was not my decision but I was just the messenger, but that doesn't help much. When she figured out where the conversation was going and said, "You're firing me??" that's when it all hit the fan. Her hands and voice were shaking and she was in denial, then she was bargaining, then she was bawling her eyes out. And this all happened on the last effing day of work before Christmas. Feel horrible for her; feel like a total jerk. In other news, ummmm... Did I mention I have five daughters? Work and kids, that's my life.
  18. had a baby girl last thursday. The basketball team is complete!
  19. Well, obviously we should all be looking to you as a shining example of what one can be when they make their "own" decisions.
  20. Ed, boston convention and exhibition center. either way, you're not far. I'm staying at the Revere.
  21. Ed, are you ready for a bunch of dentists to descend upon Boston next week? I'll be there Wed-Thur for a dental conference.
  22. Because you don't just pull a tooth because it has a deep filling. A root canal is a major procedure on a tooth and permanently weakens it, plus it is also expensive, so we try to avoid getting to that point. Point is, stop blaming the dentist for trying to fix the decay in your teeth that is ultimately your own fault. Just because you can't see it when you look in the mirror doesn't mean it isn't there. Trust me, I'm a ****ing doctor.
  23. If the filling was "right on the nerve" then it means that the decay went that deep. Most dentists don't like to get too close to the pulp when doing a filling, but sometimes the decay goes that deep. Even if we don't actually perforate into the pulp chamber when cleaning out decay, sometimes the pulp can get irritated from all the drilling. Dentists are human and many make mistakes, but it bugs the hell out of me when people blame dentists for what is ultimately their own fault.
