I'm getting a wisdom tooth taken out in about 10 hours and im not looking forward to it. They would have left it a few more months and taken it out with another one that has to come out if it wasn't growing in at such an acute angle - so I go thru this experience to only have to face it all again in 2/3 months!

 I hadn't actually heard The Girl Is Mine until a few minutes ago and I must say that out of these 3 songs we are discussing, I like The Girl Is Mine the most. And with ''like'' I mean which I dislike the least.

That's another of the McCartney early-80s duets I dislike intensely. Especially the talking part. It *really* dates the song - one of my friends called that kind of thing a "pornover." And something about a 40something man bantering with a 20something man about fighting over a woman gave me the intense creeps. And I can't think of the song without think of that skeevy drawing MJ did for the liner notes. Why is the woman so tiny, lol?

Randomly, though, I do remember liking the musical shift at the part where they sing, "So come and goooo..." Like a brief key change. The bridge is the best part of the song, I think.

Wow, really? I thought most people's wisdom teeth come iinshore they're in high school. I just got mine out in the beginning of this year, and it was pretty terrible. I almost ended up in the hospital because my breathing rate was so low, and then the whole day I couldn't do anything. I couldn't even sit up or drink anything because every time I did I would puke because I was so dehydrated.

Flippin heck unknown, that is one awful experience. I hope you recovered quickly.

Its not been anywhere as bad as that for me thankfully tho the food i can eat is so limited, nothing too hot or cold or crunchy for 2 to 3 days at least. I must add that the staff at the Glasgow Dental Hospital were amazing throughout it all, excellent standard of care. Ive been in a couple of hospitals and my local health centre a lot over the last 6 months and every member of staff I have encountered has been amazing. You are meant to have to leave 48 hours between when you order repeat prescriptions and collect them but I got mine today in less than 7 hours because of being on a double dose. Cant praise them enough.

I never had wisdom teeth (what's more, I'm also missing the teeth that are supposed to be next to them. So I miss about 4 teeth) but my sister did, and she had to pull them and she also had to pull 7 other teeth before she could have her braces. It was horrible. She walked around for a few days with a towel with loads of blood on it and wasn't able to speak. Then after a few months, she had to undergo a jaw correction. That was even worse. Wow I felt so sorry for her. She had to go through so much trouble with her teeth, and now that her braces are out (they've been out for over a year so that's quite long already) her teeth still don't look too great.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Ewww, Having any tooth issues is a painful issue but I cannot imagine how horrific an experience that was for your sister.

Random question but why on earth would you queue up for 40 minutes to buy a donut or anything like that? Have read a few times of people standing in line for such a time to buy a donut and it dumbfounds me.

My mouth is still hurting and got to go thru this again in 6 weeks. Anyone know of a good 24 hour 3 - 4 day pain removal product?

I don't know. I probably wouldn't and just go elsewhere to buy food. Can't believe people do that, must be one very special donut then.

Don't know that either, will ask my sister what she used. Maybe she remembers.

I've waited a long time for food in the past, but I'm not sure about waiting that long for a greasy, deep-fried ball of fat. I don't mind waiting for a table in a good restaurant, in fact, I shouldn't really complain if I haven't reserved one.

I would understand if you were at some fancy restaurant or a dinner party, drinking nice wines and chatting with friends or whoever, but standing in the street for 40 minutes to purchase a donut, bagel, crepe or some other type of food item... I wouldn't wait for 10 minutes and even after 5 I would be off having better things to do.

 

Continuing on the teeth topic, when I was around 12 I fell off a Fairground ride (one of those that zip around from side to side high up in the air) as it was missing a safety bar, slipping right under even tho my brother tried to hold me on. Plunged from the highest point right into one of those massive outdoor speakers, thumped my face against it and one of my front teeth, root and all, came flying out, whilst I slipped into unconsciousness. Someone found it and gave it to the ambulance crew who gave it to one of the doctors in the hospital who without much warning rammed it back into my mouth after I had come round. Afterwards I was rewarded with 1 whole Polo mint - and around 3 years later Root Canal Surgery.

I'm going to sell this story to the highest bidder and live off the millions.

Wow that's horrible! I know what kind of ride you mean, was it a ship? I hate those things, always try to avoid them at fairgrounds and when I go in there, I always try to sit as much in the middle as possible, on the lowest point, let's say. But wow, that's such a terrible story. Didn't you break anything? Oh and what did your parents say?

 

Worst thing that ever happened to me psysically was probably that time I thought walking on the fence in my grandma's frontyard was a good idea. It was round and not square, like most fences are. Aaaaand so I fell, straight into the spiky bushes. At the time I had glasses and so one of the earpieces (?) fell right above my eye, through the skin. Something also happened to the nerves because I have never been able to clearly see everything with that eye. Anyway, I had stitches for a long time and it never really healed. I had to walk around for a few months with a huge plaster over my eye after they took the stitches out. I wasn't a lucky child, I always had loads of accidents, like the time I fell off a teeter totter (geebus I had to search for a long time before I found the word) and broke my arm. I'm glad I never had anything happen to my teeth though, I think I'd die. Not literally.

Wasn't sure where to say this, but my commiserations to the bontee twins. You had the bottom two places on the top posters until today's changes, and were you one person, you would still be up there.

Me and my sister are heading up to Liverpool on Thursday, so I'm currently trying to convince her to walk the 1hr 30 min. from Lime Street Station to 12, Forthlin Road and/or Mendips and Strawberry Field. Hmmm... think I may have to buy her lunch... a-hard-days-night-george-4

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8You can get a taxi Emily. They're called Fab Four Taxi Tour or something, they take you round all the important places; houses, schools, Strawberry Field, Penny Lane etc. I think there's also a bus tour that runs from the Beatles Shop in Liverpool as well, I think it might be called Magical Mystery Tour (looks out for a lot of bad Beatle puns while you're in Liverpool!) a-hard-days-night-john-6

You're supposed to use ice first 24 hours and something hot the next couple days. You could also just take a lot of benadryl so you could sleep through it, or keep yourself busy with things you enjoy, and then you won't feel any pain because you'll be so happy.

Yeah, I did one of those MMT buses last year. It was good as you got to see all the different places, but a little expensive for me and my sister (we're paying for this little day out, train tickets and all, and we're both broke). I just wanted to go there, spend some time there, even if it meant not seeing anything Beatles-related (except the Cavern, I'm taking her there). I love Liverpool as a city, Beatles connection or not. But now I'm thinking that I really want to go to some Beatles places. I can't expect her to walk all that way for something she's not bothered about though, so never mind. There'll be another time. At least I have been already.

It was a cross between the Pirate Ship and Miami Twist, cant remember the actual name of the ride. Nothing was broken and my family said nothing that I can recall. Didn't get time off school and didn't sue anyone. Nowadays it would be front page news, million pound lawsuits and folks campaigning for all fairground rides to be incinerated.

That post falling experience is horrible to read, sounds like an episode of Casualty or ER. I'd rather have the tooth escapade than anything going near my eye.

As a child I wasn't very fortunate either having had around 9 cracked heads, once walked into the back of a lorry, and my ear slammed in a door. Growing up with three older brothers can be a damaging experience.

 

Unknown, no one ever mentioned ice on the face and was told to avoid anything very cold or hot yet I read what you said online after I couldn't sleep. Thank you for the advice.

Anyway i'm going back to my own dentist as I have a ringing and rumbling noise in my ears which is getting louder and after a visit to the local nurse I was referred to my doctor who adviced me to go to the aforementioned dentist as I have a small infection. And I have to get another wisdom tooth out on the 10th September.

It makes me laugh when people decide they want to lose weight, so they ask for just one sandwich rather than two for their lunch, and buy low-fat varieties of butter, biscuits and cake. Maybe I shouldn't laugh really, it's sad that people really do have that little knowledge about healthy eating.

Haha yeah, I saw that and wondered if Mr. Sun King had returned! Then realized "Wait, that wouldn't have made any difference...what's going on?"

So there's fewer Top Posters up there now, eh? Oh well, we had a good run. And speaking of masthead changes, congrats to you and ffEmily!
