I kind of mocked it up with some old lego mindstorms stuff. It's just a prototype, but it relies on colored tape on my room to find its way around, along with an internal fuzzy map of its surroundings... Now just to figure out how to get it to accept voice commands from my mac through bluetooth. So far it's just a walking bin, though...

I'm going to make sure I turn it off at night, though. I do not want a heavy hulk of steel wandering around in my house with nobody to watch it.

Well, now how I respond when I see a suspected dead person, pretty calm and collected, I always wondered because people in TV shows who aren't law enforcement almost always act panicked. I was walking with my dogs out in the country side and saw a car parked there. When I passed the car - which was parked weird, half in a ditch - I looked inside and saw a person in the drivers seat. At first I suspected he was dead, since he wasn't moving, so I called emergency services, when I saw him breathing very shallowly. I did feel a bit relieved that he at least still was alive, they sent over a police car and an ambulance, police opened up the doors and the paramedics got him out. Probably had a stroke or a heart attack or something.

I mean, I've seen dead bodies before at wakes and even poked around in a few in a dissection room for my education, but finding one unexpectedly is different still.

The costs of plane tickets are that low for you? I'm so jealous (grumbles about ridiculous taxes on flying in the UK due to environmentalism).

The flights on JetBlue from Orlando to San Jose, Costa Rica are about $300. From Miami is about $500. I could always use Spirit, where the base ticket is like $150, but I'm wary about the fees. It will probably end up being the same price to fly to a different country, spend a week there, and get my teeth pulled out as it would be to stay here and do it.

Oh why, oh why, oh why does this exam have to be in person. Face to face with the examiners. Me standing up and presenting so every tremble is easily noticeable. Unknown, scary questions about why I didn't do things well enough, or why I should have done more.

Yesterday I just took my last school exam ever (YAAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!!!!) and I went in there totally sick of studying and knowing I could take it twice. So my friend and I both figured we could just take it hopelessly unprepared and then figure out what's on it and focus on those topics for the next time. Well, guess what? We both passed. Somehow it all worked out (AND NOW I AM DONE FOREVER EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE). So if something that miraculous could happen, I say you will do exceedingly well.

Hmmmm. I wonder where I could find dream diaries from decades ago. I just was reviewing the dream thread, and thought about how many dreams are influenced so heavily by the media we consume - mainly TV, but also music, books, and much more recently, video games.

There's so many factors it's hard to say.

I had 3 wisdom teeth cut out (2 were impacted) when I was 26 and the whole thing went really smoothly.

Indeed. I had all four of mine taken out over a week-ish period (two on one day, the other two four days later) and it really wasn't that big of a deal. In about two or three weeks I was back to eating completely normally, and even immediately thereafter I was eating perfectly fine, just in small bites that I had to track. Didn't need to be put under, Novocaine was fine, and freaky tools weren't needed. (spoilered for the mental image)
Spoiler:
If you don't consider the dental version of bent needlenose pliars and a flathead screwdriver freaky. Look, I know they weren't that, but that's what they looked like to me.


And then there's others who have to be put under and it's a huge ordeal to get one out, let alone four.


All that being said.. not everyone even has four wisdom teeth, so.. there's that too.

Oh, yeah, I was put under. Didn't remember the drive home. But recovery was fairly smooth. Careful with what I ate for a few days (not as careful as I should have been) and it wasn't too long before it wasn't a concern at all.

I could be completely wrong, but I think it only sucks if they do move, and they don't for everyone. You may never need to get your wisdom teeth removed!

Angua can correct me since she's the expert, having just given an oral exam. :lol: (can "Good luck with your FACE" be a cool mafia inside joke please? My life needs more inside jokes.)

Thanks! :)

I'm pretty sure it won't be a big deal, but this is my first actual surgery and I've never actually been put under before. The strongest anesthesia I've ever had was a bit of Novocaine.

So yeah, I'm still really anxious but idek I'll probably be fine.

the thought of needlenose pliers digging into my gums makes me shiver, lol

Spoilered just in case (description of anesthesia):
Spoiler:
Having my wisdom teeth out was my first time under general anesthesia too, and still kind of amuses me. In particular, I remember them clipping some monitoring thing onto my finger, and I started looking at the vital signs monitor, trying to work out which thing was which (without my glasses on), staring at the blue one intently, then waking up, more or less fully alert. No sleepiness, no sense of drifting off, just focusing on something and then "apparently I'm waking up now...from...being awake...and I'm in a different room. huh."

And then I had chipmunk-cheeks for a couple days and ate many Spaghetti-Os :P

Received a haircut. Used unnecessary hair products. Should have stopped them. Smells like a candle now.

(Regarding wisdom teeth) Removed them at eighteen years of age. Had never experienced anesthesia either. Worried about it. Happened like this:
Spoiler:
Dentist: "Begin counting down from one hundred."
Deva: "One hundred, ninety-nine, ninety-eight." (Is not sleepy.) "Ninety-seven, ninety-six, ninety-five." (Must not be effective.) "Ninety-four, nine—"
Dentist: "All done."

Was ecstatic. Acted "loopy", according to a parent.

Anesthesia:
Spoiler:
My first time (for my wisdom teeth) being put under, I just remember laying in the chair and watching someone inject something into the IV. Then another thing. Then another. I started feeling kind of light, like I was about to lift off the chair. I watched him inject one more syringe into the IV and I'm pretty sure I saw him going for another. I vaguely remember being led to the car for my girlfriend to drive me home. I don't remember the drive home, but I remember sitting on the couch after that.

I don't think my wisdom teeth will ever come in. They gave me an xray when I was having my braces done (which took 5.5 years due to the fact that a bunch of my teeth didn't want to fall out) which didn't even show them lying in wait.

Mine are just coming in and I'm 20. Some people don't get them.

I don't know how much age is a factor, but I think it's whether they're impacted and if it's bony that makes it an issue (at least that's what looking for insurance leads me to believe).

Teeth pulling an' that.
Spoiler:
When I had my two front teeth removed, I remember talking about how brookes students (the main other oxford uni) were annoying, then apologising (like maybe halfway through? because people were worried I was speaking) and then half a conversation with my friend some indeterminate time after. It was on my sofa at home, and it weirded him out that I brought it up later on, he figured I couldn't remember anything, so said some things he maybe wouldn't've otherwise.

I had two of my baby teeth removed when I was seventeen; they had completely fused to the jaw. That cracking sound ... *shudders*

Hilarious blog post about gendered marketing. The youtube clip at the end is really cute too.

Every time I hear about this game it makes me wonder what I missed. I played it and enjoyed it, but it didn't blow me away. Probably my biggest issue was combat being very difficult, and I spent way too much time waiting for the nameless one to regenerate health.

Then I think maybe I'll give it another shot.

Then I remember why I stopped playing in the first place. The game hardcore fucked my computer. I had to reinstall windows twice, and it's still not back to where it was before.

I bought a song on iTunes, but it refuses to show up in my library. I can put it in playlists, but not the main library? Wtf apple?
