Well, Zornie over here has been already condemned for being a "racist", a "neonazi", an "internet tough guy" - a hooligan of some sort - and a disrupter of peace in this forum. Now he's apparently illiterate.

And referring to himself in the third person!

Tell me, wise judge, what should be my punishment?

You have to go back and re-read all of your own posts from page one.  That's punishment enough for anyone.
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

My theory is that Svartzorn's grandfather moved to Brazil from Germany circa 1945.
Did you get this from that old movie "The Boys from Brazil."?????

Never saw it. But loads of Nazis escaping to South America is a real thing.

Svartzy at the dentist.



Been to a dentist today. Had 2 teeth removed. Not funny. At all.

I didn't get the dentist thing.
But I guess that if I'm Bill Murray, that's cool.
Now BM is really funny, you told me I wasn't funny at all. I smell nonsense. Where are you going with this, mister?

@mike: praise God. There was this time I had to remove 4 teeth at once. Some hardcore stuff. I even got stitches.

You really need this explained to you?  Perhaps there is a cultural miscommunication going on here.

Which freaked me the heck out and repulsed me.  It sounds a lot like something which might come out of the mouth of a masochistic freak like Bill Murray's character in the linked scene.  Maybe I should've gone with the gimp from Pulp Fiction - which seems a little closer to the mark here -  but I thought LSOH was a little more oc.net appropriate.  ;)

But yeah, Bill Murray is awesome.  You're right about that.  See, we're finding common ground now.  :)

I always say I'm responsible for what I say, not for what people understand.
But... yeeeeaaaaah... I didn't mean any kinky thing. And I was late to grasp that the scene was going kindda sexual in a masochistic fashion (did it go that way?) because I lack social skills.

But it's always good to find common ground anyhow. ;)

Well, in the English-speaking world, men don't call one another "dear" very often.  I know it's different in other languages/cultures.  I get called habibi all the time by Egyptian men, which of course is roughly equivalent to dear, but I can't really picture any white North American calling another dude "dear", except maybe Paul Lynde or Rip Taylor.  But hey, Svartzy, no harm no foul!

Only for Murray, not for Martin.

because I lack social skills.

Well observed!  And you get points for honesty!  ;)

True.  Let's all put a little love in our hearts.  ;D

Take a break from smoking and suck on some ice. Some recommend ice cream, but I think you may risk an infection.
My stitches were meant to be dissolved, so I didn't need to have them removed.
I wish you all the best.

I had one that never did. It felt weird (though not bad) when it busted out a couple of years later.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Two teeth at the same time: I can't believe you have the ability to actually type with all the swelling & pain.  I know you will feel even worse tomorrow & I have only had one tooth pulled at a time.  Except for when I had my 4 wisdom teeth out all together-but in a hospital with general anesthetic so I was out cold.

You guys are a bunch of punks.  I had all four wisdom teeth pulled out in one shot too, with stitches, the whole nine.  Plus, one of them crumbled apart and the doc really had to do some slashing and digging to root out the remains.  Big deal.  I ate eggs and Ensure shakes for a week - and ice cream (no infection) - and in no time at all I was back on normal food.  Just keep the ice pack on your face, rinse the wounds out with that syringe thing and salt water, stay away from chewy stuff and rice type stuff that can get stuck in there, and you'll be back on your feet in no time.  I went to work two days after the surgery.  No big deal.

Oh, and go to an oral surgeon, not a regular dentist, if you have any choice at all.

This.....i only had two out but I couldn't even get stitches because i was leaving for a year in the Amazon a week later....so i had to tough it out and just rinse obsessively.

+1 here.  I only had my upper wisdom teeth out (partially impacted), but it wasn't so bad.  A coworker said she was "out" (of the office, not feeling well) for a week.  I was like, WTF!  After.   Just not that bad, albeit sore.  The place wasn't the friendliest - seemed more for medicare types and like that made customer service and friendliness an irrelevant business concept.  I kinda felt used and abused, but it got the job done.  I was given some vicodin type of prescription, but ended up only taking a few pills and stuck to ibuprofen mainly.  It happened in the morning and I took the rest of the day and the next off of work, but felt I could've gone back the same day if really needed (even if I would've felt a bit miserable).  I only had local anesthesia though and I hear that if you "go under", the recovery is longer/tougher.  But I don't know.

I alas have a major dental procedure of this sort pending due to an improperly racked computer falling on my face.  The damage was sufficiently severe to warrant either bridgework or a partial denture.

I laughed so hard I probably woke someone up. I hope your major dental procedure of this sort is warranted to be alright.
