re: Weight loss surgery? - pngtiger
Don't do the band, or the new mangnetic rings. It's a foreign body that can erode, and if it does, it's a major problem. Also, it's easy to "beat it" by drinking your calories, which many do. It takes adjustments regularly (first to get it just right, almost to obstruction, then more and more as/if ...

re: Turn: Washington's Spies and interesting history - pngtiger
Just told my wife about what you said about Simcoe. She said, "so you're telling me he doesn't get killed?" Agree that every season has been better than the last. Abe's temper gets him in trouble, much like Arnold. ...

I came across some interesting info; the great-grandfather of Benedict Arnold had many kids, whose descendants include: George H W, George W, and Jeb Bush ...

re: Laparoscopic Appendectomy - Side Effects and Recovery Time - your experience - pngtiger
It's normal. Usually takes 3-5 days. As long as you're passing gas you're fine. And it sounds like you're on the normal course for pain. Day after you usually feel like you got run over. By day 3 or 4, you feel like you can get back to normal stuff, but tire easily ...

re: Tell me about the Opening Ceremonies for the CWS - pngtiger
They're kind of meh. Fireworks were cool. Year I went, we caught the teams intro, the smash mouth started to play so we left. Went to a bar across the street, saw a guy wearing a 1987 Nebraska sugar bowl shirt. I said yo him y'all killed us that game, that was my first bowl game with my dad. We ...

[quote]says the PAC changed its campaign finance reports to reflect individual donations from COA employees rather than as a donation from the agency as a whole.[/quote] Is this voluntary or compulsary? Even if voluntary, I see a huge conflict if it is coming out of the employee's paychecks. And ...

I was looking at jeeps at one point, and couldn't believe it was so hard to find a manual. I also looked at the m series Bmw's and to get a manual, I would have to special order it. They said, "you will have paddle shifters or the steptronic shifter". explained the whole reason I was looking at that...

re: OT Medicos: right side testicle pain, sickness to stomach - pngtiger
Testicular torsion, or hernia (but the testicle doesn't usually ride high with a hernia). The episodic nature sounds like it Torses and untorses. The pain in the stomach is because the testicles (and ovaries) developed around the kidney, then descend down before birth. So the innervation would b...

re: Candle burners of the OT, what's your favorite candle? - pngtiger
Like the jasmine and patchouli too, used to burn these a lot (and had the oil with whacks). Lately, got the huge French oak candle from restoration hardware. It took a year to burn the first one, which for the cost was good. Have tried finding something similar elsewhere and for cheaper, but no ...
