FWIW, you might want an implant instead of a bridge. With proper care they last forever. Bridges sometimes break. 1poorlady got them for exactly that reason. Plus they have to grind the adjacent healthy teeth to anchor the bridge.

Re: Whither Scotland's Empire?

But I can not see it for Scotland. They can join the EU, adopt the euro, and join NATO.

If that's their ultimate plan, then you're right. It wasn't clear to me that was the ultimate goal. I seemed like a fit of nationalism, but [more]

Re: question for 1A

The mystery of why and how is the same.


Can you expand on this? As a "believer" you likely believe the "how" is "God did it" and the "why" is "for humanity". That's pretty much [more]

Re: Not Showing ID to Police

I imagine it's pretty common for people to call 911 to report a crime in progress, regardless of whether it's an "emergency" or not.

Probably. But I was living here when they "turned-on" 911, and they emphasized [more]

Trust me, both sides are quite convinced that the objects of their hatred are quite deserving of their hatred. There was no lack of emotional revulsion towards Rumsfeld, Cheney, et. al. on the part of the progressive side of the aisle. [more]

Pretty much every house's incoming water line in our area is above-ground PVC.
