I have this thing my friends and I call a "doll jaw". Its a vein that runs from the corner of my mouth to the outside of my chin and disappears at the jaw line. We call it this because if you were to darken it and draw another one on the other side, I would have the jaw of a doll. Does anyone else have this?

Dr. TQC --
Why are my toes peeling really bad? Are they just dry or have I developed some sort of horrible foot disease from walking around barefoot in my dorm?
(I looked up athlete's foot, and they're not peeling like that...just sort of peeling like my skin is dry. Except, they don't seem dry..)

Also, how do I tell my mother that I burned my carpet under my bed?
It happened when I was about 13 and I was so embarrassed/scared to tell my parents that I moved my bed over it. They're getting new windows put in soon and my bed is right under the windows. :[

So, I just watched Michael Moore's SiCKO.

Is that an accurate representation of your experiences with the American Healthcare system?

Do you think that it would be that way if the vote was compulsory? (idk just seems like the sort of issue the people would be interested in if they had to sit up and take notice)

Any healthcare stories you want to share with the class?

Any other thoughts?

Cos I mean, holy shit, dude. Here (Australia), I can go to a psychologist and it either costs me $10 or it's free, depending on which system I use to claim back on. Doctors, dental etc, the bulk of the cost is reimbursed. I don't think we have the most whizz-bang system, but it's pretty good.

it's been a while!

i went through a phase in my early teen years where i shopped at hot topic a lot. i ended up owning big, black, buckle-y boots and had no use for them when i decided i was no longer sad and angry. i never gave them up and i've just recently found them, and i want to put them to good use.

they look similar to:

i'd like to wear them this halloween, but i'm not sure what i could be. my nerdy boyfriend, who's going to be wolverine, wants me to be x-23. i was hoping for something not so.. comic book-related. so, what boot-wearing costume should i have for halloween?

Not the first time

In the past few years, I have blacked-out several times. Once was during an MS seminar (I am diagnosed), another time was at my house when I was in the bathroom, when I was taking a shower with my ex, and then again last night.

Now my question is this: could it be anything else aside from the MS? Lack of some nutrients/healthy nonsense? This is getting ridiculous and one day I am going to black-out in a less-than-ideal situation. Help, please.

Oh. And my neurologist once told me that I need to lay down, no matter where I am or the situation, when I feel the signs that it might happen (which I felt last night, ignored, and blacked-out). Then again, I could be walking in the middle of the street and laying down would be impossible.

I need your help

I think my boyfriend is going to propose to me tonight so I need to get horny quick!

He has been asking me about what I want for a ring for months now, he has planned a vacation, he is talking about buying a house and I think I know why he is having the house cleaned and running around like a silly boy:)

1. Will you post something that makes you horny? A song, a poem, a picture, a painting, a video?

2. If you are married, will you tell me the proposal story?

3. If you are not married, will you tell me your proposal fantasy?

Perfect Oral Hygiene

What is the order of perfect oral hygiene?

There is:
mouth wash
tongue scraping

Anything else I'm missing?  Does that seem like the correct order to do things?

I learned from my dentist that rinsing with mouth wash is supposed to be the first step to loosen food particles but I don't know where to go from there.  I Googled but I only found techniques for flossing and brushing.  I found a dental community but it was last updated a week ago, so I turn to you.

Also, do any of you use toothpaste that is free of sodium lauryl sulfate? If so, what do you use and where did you get it?

I Googled that too but it seems like you have to buy the toothpaste online... or I'm not looking hard enough.

He also can't burn CDs anymore for some reason, so he can't back up any of his files. I suggested sending it to the manufacturer or going somewhere to get it fixed because I have no idea what to do. Do you have any suggestions on what he should do?

Does anyone know if cinnamon powder mixed with a little water will stain a white counter?

My boyfriend and I have been dealing with ants in our kitchen, and I've noticed that they really fucking hate cinnamon. So I have it sprinkled all over the counter tops, and I've mixed some of it with water to make a paste so I can get it on vertical surfaces. But we're renting this apartment, and I don't want to have to take a bunch of money out of our security deposit so my landlady can get a bunch of brown cinnamon stains out of her counters.

I managed to completely surround an ant in cinnamon, and the guy was freaking the fuck out. He probably still is. It's really funny to watch. Am I a terrible person?

Tea que cee, should I be social?

There is a party at our neighbor's house this evening but I don't know if I wanna go-I know my parents will be going but I am so quiet and tend to feel sort of uncomfortable at most social gatherings where I have nobody to talk to-I feel like my parents would be talking to them so then I wouldn't really have anybody to talk to-On the other hand, it's food and it's better than spending my own money or sitting around I suppose and if I got THAT bored I live like two houses over so I could just leave quietly. So, should I go to the party even though there's a chance of my feeling somewhat uncomfortable and see what happens-if anything there is a free meal or should I just forgo it?

Problems reading from archived CDs and DVDs

Ok, my googling has not turned up any useful info.

I have a whole bunch of CD and DVD-ROMs storing archived data, each disk has a list of directories (like Jan02, Feb02, Mar03, etc). I'm looking to move the archives onto external discs. I'm using the same CD/DVD burner to read the discs as I did to burn them. I can get most of the data off the CDs or DVDs, but for some reason, I am unable to copy the last directory of files on each and every disc. This just seems too much for coincidence. The disks have been stored in protective sleeves and show no signs of scratches or anything.

I really would like to get all the data off. It just seems odd that it does the same thing on each disc, regardless of format (CD or DVD).

Can anyone here offer up any useful info or links?

Hey, I have a bit of a problem making a decision.

I've never taken sick leave from work in my life, I've always been pretty healthy. Now, I have some rather nasty infected cuts in my hands, oozing puss and swollen, you can guess the details. The doctor prescribed me a ten day antibiotic cure. It would be all right for me to work, but my work is very physical and my hands get dirty - I have to, among other things, take 60 soil samples a day and in general roam around forests even when it rains. I'd need to keep my hands clean so the infection would heal, but I feel like an idiot to take sick leave for something so minor like this :S It's not like my leg is broken or something. I declined the sick leave and thought I can wear gloves, but really, no matter what type of gloves I wear my hands still get dirty because I need to be able to write all the time and it won't do with thick rubber gloves. Thin rubber gloves I'll just tear right away with my measuring equipment.
But, really, I just want my hands to heal, they hurt.. Should I just suck it up and ask for the sick leave on Monday? Will my boss think I'm a lazy idiot? I really don't know what people do in these situations - I'm usually never sick.

edit: This is also my last week at work! Then I'll just return the equipment.. it would be four days of about 9-hour days if I don't take the sick leave. If I do it's just returning the equipment after the leave and that's it.
