I saw the sad news about Mindy McCready on the bbc site. Not an artist i know anything about but her name I had heard of. Tragic for the children, losing one parent is horrific enough but the youngest has lost both so quickly. So many losses over the last month or two.

 

Anyone know anything about having wisdom teeth removed, have 2 growing in and have been referred to have them yanked out. Main question i have is afterwards would it be better to have someone to get me home as its a bus ride and 20 min walk from the city of extraction to home?

Wisdom teeth can be a bit of a bugger, not always but can be. I'd say you're better off having someone with you just in case it does leave you feeling a bit woozy.

At the beginning of my appointment the dentist spent 2 or 3 minutes telling me what nerves are attached to wisdom teeth and what issues there are with having them removed with the obvious aim of getting me to decide to leave things as they were. After seeing the results of xrays i wasnt given the option of not going, i was being referred. Always nice to get the gruesome picture.

 

Is it a long procedure where you are put under or do you get a local anesthetic? I had to get root canal treatment about 15 years ago (long horrible story why) and was asked if i didnt mind a student or two watching to witness the procedure. Being polite i said sure and about 8 students walked in, surrounded the room, and looked on as the surgeon did whatever he had to do. Weird experience.

I don't think they're the easiest extraction, and from a couple of friends who had them removed, it was done under gas, and they were told they had to have someone with them.

OK, those were pretty lame.

But the thread's been designated as "impossible to derail", so...

I. Am. So. Mad.

I spent about half an hour typing text to create a Beatles Wordle (wordle.net, if anyone is interested and/or doesn't know what Wordle is) only to discover that it requires Java, which my mom made me uninstall because there are some possible problems with the newest version. But at least I don't need Java to post on this site!

Never heard of wordle, had to look 'em up. Those word-clouds look pretty cool indeed! I can't imagine what practical use they have, though, aside from decorating introductory letters from advertising agencies or some such.

My science teacher (she's pretty awesome) had us create Wordles as study tools. Words that are more frequent in the original text appear bigger than the other words in the word cloud, so it helps us to figure out which terms are more important. Also, in a newspaper from before the American presidential election, there were Wordles comparing one of Barack Obama's speeches to one of Mitt Romney's speeches, and it showed which words they used frequently.

Have seen a Beatles Wordle before. It was done from putting in all the song lyrics, but missing out things like "the", "and", and "a". Showed words like "love", "you" and "her" very big, while needing to squint for things like "sexy", "Eleanor" and "Sadie".

Egroeg, If you have Word and can do whatever you're doing in Word, you can create your own Wordle effect -- just do a search & replace where you put the same word in both search and replace, but specify in the replace box options a much larger font size.  Then before you hit enter to perform the search & replace, make sure you select the "replace all" option.

And Now For Something Completely Different...

Egroeg in the "food pun" topic said she didn't know who the "Rutles" were.  They were none other than members of Monty Python.

(P.S.:  For anyone who has ever watched their TV show and specials they had back in the 70s (still available of course on YouTube and other sites), they frequently segued from one comedy sketch to another with the phrase I used at the top.)

I thought they were just a band who parodied the Beatles. I didn't know they were from Monty Python. Cool!

And now for something quite samey...

Egroeg already been picked up on lack of Rutles knowledge on another thread, with a couple of clips, followed by her saying she'd been to Wikipedia to look them up.

Here's a question for you Funny, did you know there's a Rutles Love parody on YouTube, put together by a fan and not a Rutle. If you don't go hunting, it's called Lunch, and is fantastic.

EDIT: I've put it up in Beatle LOLs!

I'm always waiting for someone else to post. You need someone to reply to. There are those you hope post more than others! You're on the list of those I try finding something to entertaining to say. After all, you were the first to say hello.

On a different note, and therefore a different post, what does one do if they burn their hand on a toaster? It's not a particularly bad burn, but still...

I did that when I was like eight, it's just really tempting, you know. Even now I will get the urge sometimes, but I don't do it because it's not a great experience. I held my hand in ice for like three hours, it was really painful.
