  1. no offense, wildstar, but I hate those groups. They are popping up everywhere and generally just irritating to me.
  2. At the risk of sounding like a dentist, sleep apnea is a serious problem. Your dentist will at least be able to refer you to a specialist who can at least fabricate an appliance you can wear at night to keep your airway open.
  3. I never berate my patients, however, i can understand why some dentists do. When you CONSISTENTLY see people coming in who have swollen, red, and bleeding gums, and you know for a 100% fact that flossing will reverse and prevent that condition, it's gets a little irritating when people don't listen. If your hands started bleeding when you were washing them, wouldn't that concern you? Healthy gums should not bleed, unless you inflict some sort of injury to them. Teeth have 5 visible sides to them. Brushing can only reliably get 3 of them. Flossing is needed to get the other two. ok, i'm off my soap box for now. FLOSS YOUR DAMN TEETH, PEOPLE!
  4. one more week (exams) and my 3rd year of dental school will be officially over. Senior year, here I come!
  5. oddly enough, the teachers who are protesting instead of teaching are still getting paid. and **** all those senators who think they can skip out on their job. in this economy, you have two choices to avoid bankruptcy: raise taxes or cut spending. we ALL have to tighten our belts and make sacrifices until we can get all this **** straightened out. EDIT: Nute has a girlfriend??
  6. my mother was visiting from VA for the last 10 days. Took her to the airport at 4:30 AM. Was nice to have her visit, but it is also nice to get back to "normal". Have a "new" laptop after my old one had an untimely "accident" with some soda... repeatedly... and maybe some cleaner with bleach in it... At least my extended warranty works Happy new year to all you degenerates!
  7. as someone who moved to CA for a girl, it's not totally without its merits!
  8. it usually takes at least 2 years for a married couple to get over the honeymoon period plus all the initial hurdles of adjusting to life with someone else. Not a hard and fast rule, but it's a big F'n adjustment and it takes a while to get used to it. mutual decision? no chance of working things out?
  9. thanks ed it's my Tony Dorsett birthday! or Larry Bird birthday.
  10. You must go with your instincts. keeping a relationship going because the woman is crying is a bad way to go. This is the voice of experience.
  11. /me is a command used in IRC to display something said in the third person. This is the precursor (by a long shot) to FB status updates. /me is chatting with random ppl on teh internets! would look like this on a chat screen: *Ikhnaton is chatting with random ppl on teh internets! IRC is where I got my start on the interweb many many moons ago.
  12. finished the 8 hour test in under 4 hours. now to wait 4 weeks to see how i did.
  13. tomorrow i take part 1 of the national board dental exam. Two 4-hour sections covering anatomy, physiology, pathology, microbiology, dental anatomy and occlusion.
  14. ed, yeah, i've seen those a lot on the older houses. I used to work for a home inspection company so I've been able to see a lot of the typical houses from most areas of the country. As I said, the paint job looks good though
  15. lookin' good, ed. Although I must say I've never been a fan of shingle siding.
  16. i have fewer than 10 posts in this thread? we'll have to change that...
  17. Ed, vaios are not bad machines, but they are way too proprietary (as is typical of sony) and too expensive. I've been using an HP laptop for 2 years now and it has been good to me. Granted, it is a business laptop, not a home/small office one, so it is made a bit more robust and costs a bit more. If I had to buy another laptop, I would look at HP first.
  18. sometimes i wish it didn't take me so long to catch on to bands that are worth listening to. Recently, I've been listening to Daft Punk and totally loving it. I was familiar with two of their most popular hits but hadn't made the connection until they were mentioned on a morning radio show. I downloaded their most recent live album and it is fricking awesome. Wish I had paid more attention to them earlier, but then again, sometimes I find it more fun to play 'catch-up' with a band than follow them in the present.
