Re: 0910: "Permanence"

I have the same problem with MineCraft maps. I can't believe that game just expects me to name those off the top of my head like that. I'm on a recent trend of Beatles songs, though.

Re: 0883: "Pain Rating"

I've always hated rating my pain, mostly because it's so arbitrary and varies wildly from one patient to another, but also because how much pain I'm in shouldn't affect anything all that much. I'm in pain. Fix it. Don't ask questions.
