  2. PS: Newsies are Dumb:
    Yes, it’s “speeding towards Earth eight times faster than a speeding bullet”!!

    Um, really? Let’s see, 3500 fps is… 12,600,000 fph.. 2,386 mph… times eight… carry the 0… 19, 000 mph.

    Too low, hon. It’s speeding up as it approaches the primary. No, not the Earth, the Sun…

  5. A *high tech* version of my old Kaintuck version of dentistry as a farm kid.
    What Grandma Hopkins an Aunt Emma Lou did for me an my cousin when we started losing our baby teeth was: Tie a string on the loose tooth, attach the string to the door knob of an open door, and then slam the door! “Vie-olly” as they say in Fwance, out came the loose tooth!!!!

    At age 16 I went to my first *dentist* to get cavities filled. His fucking *drill* was bicycle-pedal powered an I remember well getting cramps in my lower arms from gripping the dental chair arm rests……….

    Very matter of fact expression at the end.

  10. So.

    Cosmetic surgery. Specifically, a face lift.

    Supposed to make you more attractive to those you want to, well, attract.

    Sometimes it doesn’t go right, and the patient ends up looking like… oh… say, Nancy Pelosi, or Kenny Rogers.

    Sad, but hey – it’s an elective procedure – you pay the price, and roll the dice.

    But what if it goes really wrong, and the patient dies?

    And, what if the patient never asked for, nor authorized the deadly facelift? What if it was arranged by someone with legal authority over the patient in all matters?

    Then you have a lawsuit, and some real dumbassery.

  11. They do the same thing under the British NHS but use a longbow.

  12. Meteors – God’s updated drone program.

    On the subject of dentistry, we had some kid aboard ship whose enlistment was up and, as part of the discharge procedure, he had to undergo thorough physical and dental exams. As the kid was not one for following a daily dental hygiene routine, the dental exam turned up a number of cavities that had to be filled before the kid could be discharged. The kid wasn’t too happy but, as he was spending the remainder of his enlistment at a Naval Support Activity instead of aboard ship, we didn’t have to listen to him whine.
    #5, Col. Jerry, sir: I guess that was in the days before novocaine and the dentist thought that you were too young for a shot on “medicinal spirits”.
