@wee_ramekin In the amazon link you posted: "...rats have the ability to restart their heart after an electrical shock". HOLY SHIT.

On Intrauterine Devices FTW

@Nutmeg Getting my iud hurt like hell. I am not a pain wimp, I've walked on a broken foot for weeks before realizing it was broken (another story). But iud insertion... yeah, it fucking hurt.
I think it probably had to do with the fact that I was crazy stressed out when I got it. I had a pregnancy scare and when the test came back negative I had my GYN insert that puppy on the spot.
I don't think ibuprofen would have helped, but maybe something to relax me. I'd recommend something like valium if you can get it.

ETA: regardless of the extreme pain, one of the best decisions I ever made.

On Wedding Ugg Has Life of Its Own

@Bonita Applebum I was just about to ask the same question. Why on earth are these hideous things still hanging around after 10 years?
And don't give me that "But they are so warm and comfy!" A lot of things are warm and comfy, like our beds and our mother's wombs, but you don't see people walking around in those do you?

On Never-Complainers, Workaholics, and the Balding-and-Manly

@stuffisthings George Costanza (Jason Alexander) has hair now! It's so weird, he must have gotten plugs or something. He is the spokesperson for a charity and an ad for said charity was playing before a movie I went to see recently. I can't remember what the charity was because all I could do was stare, agog, at George with hair.

But seriously, bald guys can be very hot. The key here is to embrace it. Shave that shit off, no combover, no horseshoe, and hold your head high.

On Never-Complainers, Workaholics, and the Balding-and-Manly

@timesnewroman I was married to someone like this.
Very chill, not a "festerer". But the problem is that, for me anyway, I could never see this as him just being chill. I consistently thought there HAD to be something going on beneath the surface that he wasn't telling me. No one is that calm, right? RIGHT?!
He would always tell me that really, nothing I did bothered him. But I need confrontation or some form of tête-à-tête to let me know that the other person is paying attention.

On Aideah and Sophayden

@Jen325 My niece has a name mentioned in this thread, though not shockingly, her name has a different spelling. When I first heard the name my brother and sister-in-law were planning I feel like I went through the grieving stages (denial, anger, bargaining, depression...). I'll let you know when I reach "acceptance" because I still refer to her by her first initial.
Sister-in-law is pregnant again, so how do I post this on facebook without deeply offending her?
