    Oh no. That’s terrible, was it never properly healed or something?

    I was hoping to be done with it soon but 35 years and it’s still bugging you....

    In Canada we have no pulp, some pulp, regular pulp and extra pulp. I usually go some pulp if it’s proper OJ, not that from concentrate stuff.

    It only happens once or twice a year and lasts for 10-15 minutes but it still there and I have never gone back to have it checked out. I figure all they will do is charge me way too much for x-rays and/or a MRI to tell me there is nothing they can do.

    I was in a really bad auto accident and that was the last thing they were worried about so maybe it did not heal quite right. I went back for a check up about 6 months after the wreck and the doctor said it had something to do with the cartilage also being damaged and it may never heal correctly but who knows, I just know when I turn the wrong way too fast!

    Yeah, that sucks! I dislocated one around that time frame right over my heart, still pops out when I least expect it but never from hard work- always pointing in a direction with my arm extended, reaching to pick something up, tying my boots, sneezing, etc.
    lights up every nerve in heart attack central and scares me for a quick moment until I realize what’s happening.
    Grandpa sure made getting older look much easier than it really is, but, he was a classy guy.

    Since we we went that route, her is a picture of our new pup Marley playing tug of war with her older brother Joker. I know it belongs in the pet thread but I’m willing to push the envelope to get us off of politics. She’s a cutie, a Malador, Malamute/Labrador mix. We got her from a rescue about an hour away.

    I was agreeing with you. I guess I should've quoted to BigDJ's post.

    If you have an iPhone, you can go to the edit option and turn the pic so it looks wrong on your phone, then again till it looks right. Then the bottom will be tagged instead of the BF forums software determining the bottom and creating a tag.

    I think one of the problems with politics these days is that social media has allowed people to unwittingly put themselves into little echo chambers where their beliefs are reinforced by others with similar beliefs until people with different perspectives are just absolutely convinced that their point of view is the absolute right point of view and the other point of view, they, are wrong and are infringing upon everyone else's rights. People get so furious. It's gotten to the point where otherwise rational people can't even have meaningful conversations anymore, it just gets too ugly.

    ^ Russia thinks this is hilarious, pitting us against each other by using our own liberties freedoms and rights against us. We helped pull down their system of government in the '80s and '90s, and they're happy to return the favor. And we're letting them.

    Nathan, the problems which afflicts us go far beyond the evidential meddling and the pitting of one against another, foremost by the Russians (I agree with your revenge a dish best served cold parallels by the Russians):

    It has now been almost 40 years that our people have been conned by the American oligarchs and the kleptocrats, through failed policies of trickle-down and laissez-fairez. Irrespective of which side people fall on the political divide line, every single person is entitled to be treated with respect and with dignity and to have a chance at upward mobility through what used to be the great equalizers in our country, when a person was not born to wealth, i.e, education and hard work (not necessarily mutually inclusive).

    We are now faced with a situation that the rich are perpetually getting richer through buying the policy makers so in essence our cherished democracy has been up for sale for many, many years before the Russians, before Putin and before FB which I incidentally concur as being evil, MoFo and UI accelerant!
