I feel the same on the prints, but I will get over it this year and get a permit, so I can carry outside of my car.
I'm sure I'll get over it, too.

We pull the clots out of it and pool them all together to make more donor units for the blood bank.

Seriously, depending on what tests are requested, the remaining specimen that isn't actually used in the testing is held for a number of days (3-7) in case there is a question about the result. After being held the proper number of days, the extra specimens are disposed of as 'medical waste'.

I've been enjoying some fruit juices lastely. Particularly V-8 fusion juices. I want to add a little carbonation to it. So, I was at the store and there is Seltzer Water, which is just carbonated water. Then there is Tonic Water and Club Soda. I see there are some other ingredients added into those but they are basically tasteless, too, right? Which would I use to add a little carbonation to my fruit juices? And what are each of these different "sparkling waters" used for? I would imagine they have some specific purposes but I have no idea what they are.

Some of those sparkling waters have sodium added. Check for that. You can make your own sparkling water by adding CO2 gas- that's all that is really needed. I think that's all those carbonation kits do. http://www.popsci.com/diy/article/2012-06/how-make-your-own-home-carbonation-system

Straight tap water and compressed CO2. Viola!

So far, no one's said a thing to me.

I am hesitant to get fingerprinted should I ever get the chance to apply for a conceal carry permit.

What's everyone's feelings on this? Am I just paranoid?
Dot got mine for my hazmat license so I am already in the system. That is my only time in the system though.

One of the reasons I have not gotten my cc permit is that I can't get it out of my head that it will turn into a backdoor form of registration.

Okay, all you smart alecks. Can someone please just answer what I would put in my fruit juice to make it carbonated?

I wonder about that, too. But I already have a FOID card so even though my fingerprints aren't in any system, it is known I have firearms.

You could use ginger ale but it will add a bit of a different taste to your drink, seltzer water is probably your best bet for not adding any taste to your drink.

Winds: if you like 7up like the fusions, you will love them together.
