My left ear has a new ear drum grafted in , R ear has nothing and they want to build one on that side too but the recovery for the 1st operation sucked so much ass I refuse to do it , nothing but blood and fluids draining down your throat for a week ontop of searing pain in your ear , where they cut your ear off and getting use to hearing in that ear again . Dont mess with my eyes or my ears , cut my nads off before any of that , not really using them anymore .

Also just set off a M18 red smoke can , pretty cool , I would have saved it for the fuse though if it were mine

If they could do that, then theoretically they should be able to make a hearing aid that emits a sound that cancels the tinnitus' sound out.

Funny. When I went to the doctor, him and my son took turns hitting me in the stomach and making me fart, then he made comments about me sounding like an orchestra.

I can get 5-6 mpg more at 70mph by drafting a semi truck. BTW, this is well within the 2 second rule.

Trip: I knew a guy that could squeeze his dog and make him fart.

You sure about not understanding them? You hurt yourself more than anybody I have ever known.

Wow. Is this guy an actual doctor or one of those dudes that just pretends to be one for awhile and then tries something else- like an airline pilot? You'd think he would go for s different specialty- like a gyno doc.

He's actually a real doctor and came highly recommended by several people I know.

Remember when I was bad sick a while back and couldn't seem to get over it? He thought it was food poisoning and was pressing on my abdomen. Every time he pushed, one would slip out. He says, "wow, it's like an orchestra!" Next thing I knew he had my son standing next to the table and both of them were poking and prodding until I was empty.

I was so damn mad, but I couldn't help but laugh at the same time. His kids go to the same school as Sue.

I hate the summer heat. It's 98 right now, and will probably only go down to 90 tonight.

Ever read about the mufflers that eliminate sound without much restriction on flow, by making the opposite sound to cancel out the engine sound? It would be cool to see THAT in a hearing aid.


EDIT* Tex beat me to it.
