re: New GOP proposal would effectively remove madate to cover pre-existing conditions - Hopeful Doc

[quote]This is probably the best starter pack out there,[/quote] That is solid. I saw this one and only didn't recommend it because it was missing Astra Blue... But everything else is great! And not too many blades that will go to waste when you realize you don't like them. ...

re: Anybody have any experience with saving consistently with a safety razor? - Hopeful Doc
That's a very "mild" razor. Check Amazon for sampler packs of blades. My first several attempts were with Shark Chrome blades. I almost threw my brand new razor away. Worked my way around a sampler pack until I found Astra (blue) blades. I get a very comfortable and close shave now for 11 cents/blad...

re: Fake Florida doctor who ‘enhanced’ buttocks with cement, caulking gets 10 years - Hopeful Doc
I actually saw a patient a while back that had this done. She had systemic silicosis. She didn't die, but she has some fairly serious long term morbidity from using industrial grade silicone. From what I've heard/read, these "doctors" will rent out a hotel room and more or less host an "injectio...
