    Time is what stops everything happening at once.

    However, I understand that one way of looking at spacetime is as a big four dimensional block with everything that ever “was” or ever “will be” in space and time frozen in – I suppose we just move through the block visiting different places in spacetime.

  • I’m not a prime member.. the last thing I bought from amazon it took quite a while for it to be delivered. I think Amazon does is fixing it so people buy prime. Its funny because this sort of thing wouldn’t happen on the high street for example imagine lots of people queuing at a checkout for ages at a store and then someone with a badge comes…[Read more]

  • I had a wisdom tooth out in July, and ate soft food for 3 days, just tepid. Kept fairly soft for 7 days.

    I only loosely swooshed with salt water for a day, then brushed the other teeth, and after 3 days switched to Corsodyl mouthwash when cleaning.

    The most important thing is to not disturb the blood clot in the hole where your tooth was. Google…[Read more]

    I can’t do more than repeat what all the kind posters have said, you are not to blame if you hadn’t been there there is a reasonable chance that something worse could have happened.

    But as others have said seeing them again will be emotional but needs to be done sooner rather than later. I imagine your friends are wrapped up in their own grief…[Read more]

    Do you use lip salves etc all the time OP?

    I did for about 15 years, it was like being a smoker-couldst leave the house without having some on me-used it all the time. went cold turkey a decade ago and have not used anything since-never have a problem and am outside a lot.

    If you’d killed him, I’d have filed under sh!t happens.

    Just his bad luck to meet you at the precise moment you have been momentarily dazzled.

    It holds true that sometimes in life you make your own luck. Running in the dark on such a road is a risk but if you are into your running and that’s where you live, it’s just what you have to do……[Read more]

  • Also people may like to know that if your provider puts up your costs Mid Contract you do have 30 days to cancel your contract. Meaning either a new provider or at least a chance to negotiate.

    @don I was intrigued by this so I just rang Sky about a potential Broadband+line contract. The salesperson did say that if the price of the contract did…[Read more]

  • scarymary replied to the topic Does acupuncture work? in the forum Health 1 month, 1 week ago

    40 years ago my dad had acupuncture for persistent and painful dermatitis, after the usual treatments (available at the time) failed. After 1 treatment there was improvement, but the dermatitis returned. He liked the improvement so much he went ahead with a second lot, since when he had no recurrence. Placebo? maybe, anecdotal evidence? yes,…[Read more]

  • What about other junk drinks like coke etc?

    I know someone who had a minor stroke age 30 and he was told it was from drinking red bull excessively and working long hours (farmer).

    I only drink highland spring sparkling water. I just hope they don’t find a health risk with that!

  • scarymary replied to the topic Worst pubs ever in the forum General Chat 2 months, 4 weeks ago

    Brambles Farm – a pub in Middlesborough. Likely to get mugged on the way in, beaten up whilst you are in, Glassed in the punch-up that follows and end up in hospital and/or the police station as you leave in haze of drug fumes.

    (Luckily I believe its been closed recently).

    Oh sweetie! So sorry you’re hurting again. I hope it heals as quickly and as well as possible.

  • I have one of these

    It seems to work well and my parents thought I’d suddenly started cleaning thoroughly, which must be a good endorsement for it. It doesn’t do any room mapping, but it does cover the roo…[Read more]

  • I had the same or similar cold virus last year and yes I know, it’s an absolute beast, you have all my sympathy!

    I can recommend something for the cough…fresh pineapple juice (well as fresh as you can get, if not a carton will do) mixed with honey and a sprinkle of salt.
    I know it sounds weird, a friend told me about it and I was quite…[Read more]

  • Hearing all these situations make me no longer want to try and sell anything on eBay.

  • My mum will open packed chicken well within date and throw it out. I gave her a lecture and told her to open it and leave it for 10 minutes. If the same smell was still there and strong, bin it but it won’t be, it’s just a reaction to the New air!

  • scarymary replied to the topic Wisdom Teeth Removal in the forum Health 3 months ago

    Disclaimer – I’m giving you advice based on the fact that I work as a dental nurse, so take the advice that was given by your dentists over mine.

    Poor you for having to have to go through a wisdom tooth extraction at this time of the year!

    The amount of pain that you have afterwards, will depend on the type of extraction that was done. You say…[Read more]
