This weekend has exceeded the number events that should be allowed to be held in one weekend.

Indeed.  I thought that Time was supposed to keep everything from happening too close together while Space was so they wouldn't bump into each other.  ;D

Do people actually use those nicorette inhalers?  It looks like something from a tampon commercial.

Good luck, Nebel.  If you pass out, they'll probably just put you in a corner so you're out of the way.  That's what I heard the medical people did with a father who keeled over while his wife was having their child.
It was definitely a fascinating experience.  The worst part was definitely the initial incision and spreading the incision to allow access to the bone.  Skin just isn't meant to look like that.  :P

Compared to some of the "same old subject again and again" threads, the "mental whiplash" is a bit stimulating.

For those of us who've been on this site for 5-7 years, I don't think there's too many new subjects to discuss; heck, I've really gone through the subjects, even arguing some issues from both sides. 'Random Postings' is as good as it gets any more. ;)
