As I understand it, cpap machines were very noisy when they first came out, but people still learned to use them because it was the only way to get a good nights sleep instead of waking up every time they stopped breathing. I’m just glad the current ones don’t make any noise.
I don’t think ankle replacement is possible, compared to knees and hips ankles are more delicate and complex, a greater range of movement than knees and hips so I don’t think there is such a thing.
I remember an episode of Criminal Minds where Rossi was complaining about how hard it was to find an original radio knob for his classic car and that was the only thing that kept his car from being completely rebuilt. In the end one of his teammates had contacts and managed to track down the knob he’d been searching for all those years.
I had that problem with one of my old roommates, we ate our meals seperately but we were suppose to take turns washing the dishes, I usually ended up doing the dishes because he put off his turn until we didn’t have anything left so I didn’t have a choice if I wanted to make or eat anything. Then there was the time when we moved to a new apartment, the last load of things from the old apartment belonged to him and he promised to move them out of my car at the new apartment (I was the only one with a car). A week later the load was still in my car when some friends came over for a visit, someone suggested going to a movie and my roommate suggested we take my car (I was the only one there with a car), and I had to point out that we couldn’t use my car because there was no room with his stuff still in the back. That’s when he suggested that our friends chip in and help empty the car so we could all go to the movies, and that’s how he managed to move his stuff from the car to the apartment without having to do the work himself.
It was Mark Twain, I think he said golf was a good walk spoiled.
I live in section 8 (low income) housing, we have a woman who comes in and does haircuts once a month for $10. Since I have naturally curly hair I get my hair cut about once every 4 months and then wait until it starts curling up uncontrollably before I get another cut so having such curly hair saves big bucks every year. When I was growing up my mother cut everyone’s hair and she got real good at it since there were 8 kids plus my dad to practice on (she was the only one who had to get her hair cut somewhere else since she couldn’t do it herself), she even did most of the grand kids and maybe even some of the great grand kids before the alzhimers got to her).
I’m on disability because I have arthritis in my back and hips (the stiff ache kind that made it hard for me to bend over, walk, etc), then a few years ago my ankles started giving me so much pain that they kept me awake at night no matter how much accetaminiphin I took. My doctor decided to x-ray my ankles to see what was wrong with them and after looking over the x-rays he “jokingly” told me that I needed new ankles because my arthritis had moved down to them.
In most companies, the art isn’t for the workers, it’s to impress the visitors.
They put way too much into that movie, not only was it Batman V Superman, but they threw in Doomsday and Wonder Woman on top of the main fight. I couldn’t keep track of what was going on and I’m a big comic fan.
Actually they do, at dinner the boss can make a better impression on the other dinner guests because of him, and at golf the boss knows he’s going to win against him; a big ego boost for the boss in both cases.
