i am not sure which is worse, 'your' apparent overkill, or 'my' apathy.... are you sure they are not telling porky pies to justify and sustain an income?

maybe you should chomp a few ibuprofen and try plyometrics?
slightly off topic.....

i heard some entertaining stories about you brits doing your own dental work on NPR. woman was telling how she pulled a piece of tooth out with pliers. then superglued a fake fingernail over a cracked tooth as a sort of crown.

just thought i'd share......

yar, the dental system has gone a bit whacky over here lately. the government allowed dentists to turn private, thus making national health provisions reduced. this was coz dentists were complaining of poverty. trouble was, it made them economically exclusive.

of course, national health allows guaranteed customers.... where as you have to advertise for private clients. for those too poor to chose, when a new national health dentist comes to a neighbourhood, they queue around the block!

i guess i got lucky.... i have a private dentist (in fact i saw him today with just 40 minutes notice for an emergency drill'n'fill) who lets me pay national health fees if my fill is low profile, or i can fork out top dollar private rates for the gleaming white fillings.

best of both worlds and no pliars required!

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

Ugh, that whole every time you put your foot down and feel stabbing reminds me of shin splints and fractured heels. Baseball and Soccer did that for me. Does the pain make riding unbearable? Atleast you can afford to see a doctor. Im looking at getting a less than desirable job for the bene's and a bag of loot for that very reason. I'm gonna see if I get through the physical with a jacked shoulder to see if I can get some cheap physical therapy after being hired

When the fuck did we get ice cream?
